Description

The next evolution of model train couplers starts and ends with the Kadee® Whisker® series of couplers. When we set out to improve upon the venerable No.5® we knew it had to be just as game-changing as the original. We took everything you loved about the No.5® and improved upon it. No more fumbling with centering springs. No more multi-piece assemblies. The Whisker® series of couplers is a true drop-in coupler. Use Kadee® Whisker® couplers in your next model and enjoy the most reliable and smooth coupling experience you’ve ever had. Made in the USA.

The #147 is interchangeable with the #27 and most manufacturer’s Medium Underset OEM knuckle couplers. For a #37 equivalent use the #147 in a #252 Gearbox.

Package Includes:

  • (2) Pair #147 Whisker® Metal Couplers – Medium Underset Shank
  • (2) Pair #242 Snap-Together Gearboxes & Lids
  • (2) Spare #622 Knuckle Springs

It is not recommended to use a metal coupler directly on a metal surface or in a metal draft gear box to avoid possible electrical crossover and shorting that may cause damage. Use the provided insulated gearbox or insulated #28 coupler.

Magne-MaticDelayed Magnetic Uncoupling

Kadee® Magne-Matic® Couplers and Uncouplers are a complete system for your model railroad layout. We’ve designed every product to work harmoniously with the Magne-Matic® system so that you can focus on enjoying your hobby instead of troubleshooting issues. Magne-Matic® technology ensures smooth and reliable hands-free coupling and uncoupling anywhere.

Refer to our helpful Coupler Conversion Charts to determine the appropriate coupler to use on your model.

*Note: 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, the top of the #147 Whisker® coupler shank may be filed thinner to fit the shallower cast-on coupler pockets.
