Bulldog coupler

Is this the preferred replacement for the coupler that ETI installs on their trailers? Iím tried of having to jostle, back up, pull foreword, swear to get the jaw to release off the ball. Itís especially bad in my driveway because where I have to park the trailer it sits flat but my truck is not. I have been fighting this issue since I got my 19 foot 2 years ago and every time I see someone in the site beside me drop their trailer in 5 mins it just reinforces my need to do something.
I know this issue has been discussed numerous times before and I have tried all of the tricks that people have posted. Iím finally screaming uncle and I need to do something so my blood pressure doesnít rise just thinking about disconnecting my trailer.

As was posted in the prior thread, the bulldog attaches from the side whereas the conventional is from the top. So you need to decide which is best for your situation....
