#158 "Scale" Whisker® Metal Coupler - Medium Centerset Shank
The #158 Scale Whisker® Metal Coupler will work anywhere a #58 Coupler will work.
This industry leading coupler features an all metal coupler head, shank, and Whisker® centering spring and comes complete with insulated draft gearbox and lid. The #158 Magne-Matic® Scale Whisker® Metal Coupler may be mounted with the included #242 Snap-Together Gearbox or with other manufacturers cast-on coupler pockets.
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.
Refer to our helpful Coupler Conversion Charts to determine the appropriate coupler to use on your model.
