Go to a trailer repair shop. You can get a locking coupler put on for about $120. They should have a few there. They will plasma cut that one off and put a heck of a lot better one on. At least around here they will. I've got one like you are showing brand new that if I can find it I'll sell it to you for the shipping cost plus $10 for me to pack it. Literally.

ThaNk you guys for the quick replies. I was thinking it’d be cheaper for me to fix this current one but for The money it may be worth just welding a new one on. Thanks again

Underneath that coupler clasp may be at least bent or possibly broken. Don't want to mess around with that. Easy fix just to replace with @Breezmeister said or me. Better safe than sorry. A cheap coupler is the weakest link.

Hi LawnMowjo, That is an old Atwood coupler on your trailer. The new couplers that they manufacturer are a different style. They discontinued repair parts for the style you have. Replacing the complete coupler is the way to go.
