I got in 10  pieces in to day (5 Pair). Drop a pair in to MT 1025 coupler boxes. The coupler is a little larger than knuckle the MT1025. They couple with MT couplers without any problems.

Good to know. Are they as large as the McHenrys or heaven forbid . . . the Bachmannn "boxing gloves"? I also ordered 10 pieces today (from SBS).

MT used to sell just the 1025 boxes.  I bought 500 pair in 2012(?), although I had to email them and ask.  At that time they would sell just the box sprue, without having to buy an entire coupler kit.

You would also need springs, but if you ask, they probably sell them as well.

My boxes were for body mounting couplers after lowering boxcars.  No point buying entire new couplers when the truck mounts use 1025s.

 They are just a hair larger than the MT. You have to take a real close look to tell the difference.
