FROM THE MANUFACTURER:

The #153 "Scale" Short Coupler will work anywhere a #23, #33, & #143 Coupler will work.

The #153 "Scale" All Metal Self-Centering WHISKER® Coupler features a "Scale" Metal Coupler (a smaller head coupler which is more to scale and is patterned after the type 'E" couplers) & Metal WHISKER® Centering Spring, insulated Draft Gear Box and Lid. The #153 Coupler may be mounted in Manufacturers cast-on coupler pockets or any of our HO-Scale draft gear boxes (except #233 30-series gear box). The coupler will couple and uncouple with other Kadee® HO and HOn3 couplers. The coupler has the same shank length as the #23, 33 or 43 coupler which will allow the modeler to remove the existing #23, 33 or 43 coupler and replace with the new smaller coupler. The #153 coupler is made of the same metal as the #43 for strength and rigidity.

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.

See Kadee’s website for their helpful Coupler Conversion Charts to determine the appropriate coupler to use on your model.
