#156 HO Scale Whisker® Scale Metal Couplers with Gearboxes - Long (25/64") Centerset Shank

The next evolution of model train couplers starts and ends with the Kadee® Whisker® series of couplers. The scale size and detail of the #58 coupler has long been popular with model railroaders, so we knew we had to offer a Whisker® version. The #156 is a Long Centerset scale sized coupler with smaller head and knuckle for a more prototypical look. The #156 features an even longer-lasting and more reliable design. No more fumbling with centering springs. No more multi-piece assemblies. The #156 Whisker® coupler 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. Always made right here in the USA with legendary Made In America quality.

The #156 is interchangeable with the #26, #36, #146, and most manufacturer's Long Centerset OEM knuckle couplers. For a #36 equivalent use the #156 in a #252 Gearbox.

Package Includes:

(2) Pair #156 "Scale" Whisker® Metal Couplers - Long Centerset Shank
(2) Pair #242 Snap-Together Gearboxes & Lids
(2) Spare #625 Knuckle Springs
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 #26 coupler.
