The 158 Whisker® Coupler is equivalent to the #58 "Scale" Metal Coupler.

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 #28 coupler.
