#5 (NO.5®) Metal Couplers - Medium Centerset Shank
This industry leading coupler features an all metal standard coupler, and #634 standard centering spring and comes complete with insulated draft gearbox and lid. The NO.5® Magne-Matic® Metal Coupler may be mounted with the included #232 Gearbox or with other manufacturers cast-on coupler pockets.
The 148 Whisker® Coupler is equivalent to the NO.5® Metal Coupler.
It is not recommended to use a metal coupler directly on a metal surface or in a metal draft gearbox to avoid possible electrical crossover and shorting that may cause damage. Use the provided insulated gearbox or insulated #28 coupler.
Refer to our helpful Coupler Conversion Charts to determine the appropriate coupler to use on your model.

Some manufacturers now produce models with non-industry standard coupler pockets (molded-on gearbox). These shallower coupler pockets may require slight modification to the gearbox or coupler to function properly. If the model has a shallow molded-on gearbox, a #148 Whisker® coupler should be used unsteady of a NO.5® coupler. The top of the #148 Whisker® coupler shank may be filed thinner to fit the shallower cast-on coupler pockets.
