#12 HO Scale Bulk Pack - 20 pair #58 "Scale" Metal Couplers - Medium (9/32") Centerset Shank
Discontinued. Superseded by #58-25
This industry leading coupler features an all metal standard coupler, and #634 standard centering spring. The #58 Magne-Matic® "Scale" Metal Coupler may be mounted with the #213, #232, #234, #242 Gearboxes (not included) or with other manufacturers cast-on coupler pockets.
The 158 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 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 #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.
