Kadee’s #153 “Scale” Short Coupler will work anywhere a #23, #33, or a #143 Coupler would work. It features an all metal coupler and a metal knuckle self-centering spring. The #153 Coupler may be mounted in manufactures cast-on coupler pockets or any of Kadee’s HO Scale draft gear boxes (except #233 30-series gear box).
It is not recommended to use a metal coupler directly on a metal surface or in a metal draft gear box to avoid the possible electrical crossover or shorting that may cause damage.
