#58 HO Scale - "Scale" Metal Couplers with Gearboxes - Medium (9/32") Centerset Shank
This industry leading coupler features an all metal standard coupler, and #634 standard centering spring and comes complete with an insulated draft gearbox and lid. The #58 Magne-Matic® "Scale" Metal Coupler may be mounted with the included #232 Gearbox or with other manufacturers cast-on coupler pockets.
The 158 "Scale" Whisker® Coupler is equivalent to the #58 "Scale" 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.
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 #158 Whisker® coupler should be used unsteady of a #58 coupler. The top of the #158 Whisker® coupler shank may be filed thinner to fit the shallower cast-on coupler pockets.
