  • Troubleshooting Demco Hijacker AutoSlide Hitch That Will Not Lock with Capture Plate DM6026
    Thank you for your purchase of Demco Hijacker Autoslide Locking Plate for Standard 5th Airborne Pin Boxes, part # DM6026. The issue you describe sounds like it could be related to the jaws on your Demco Hijacker, if it is an older unit with E or F labeled on the passenger-side jaw. Some of these jaws were not machined quite enough which caused them to hang up on the king pin. Demco is great about standing behind their products so in all likelihood you can contact them with your hitch...

  • Determining Correct Locking Plate for Demco Hijacker with Reese 5th Airborne Pin Box
    As you mentioned in your question, there are two available Demco Hijacker Autoslide Locking Plates for the 5th Airborne Pin Boxes. The plate you choose will depend on the type of 5th Airborne Pin Box that you have on the trailer. If your trailer has a standard 5th Airborne Pin Box, you will use the Locking Plate # DM6026. If you have an extended-length 5th Airborne, you will instead use the Locking Plate # DM6062.

  • Dimensions for Demco Extended 5th Airborne Pin Box Capture Plate # 6062 Compared to # 6026
    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide Locking Plate for Extended 5th Airborne Pin Boxes # DM6062 measures 12.51 inches wide and 20.01 inches long according to my tech contact at Demco including the bend in the front and the sides so that is the outermost parts. This is comparable to the 14-5/8 inch length and 11-5/16 inch width of the Demco # DM6026 for standard 5th Airborne pin boxes.

  • Trouble Getting Locking Handle To Engage on Demco Hijacker Autoslide
    I spoke with Demco about the issues you are having with the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Locking Plate part # DM6026 on your Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch like part # DM8550034 and they informed me that this is usually caused from trying to couple the trailer nose high. The skid plate on the pin box needs to be about 1/2" below the skid plate on the 5th wheel hitch and you need to be as straight as possible. This is all further explained on page 8 of your owner's manual. I...

  • Cannot Adjust Capture Plates To 1/8 Inches On Demco Hijacker Autoslide
    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches like part # DM8550034 are really only designed for pin boxes 12-14" wide. If you have a pin box that is narrower than this then the capture plate system would not be used but instead a wedge. The wedges however are pin box specific so I would need to know exactly what pin box you have in order to recommend a wedge. I have attached some options below: Standard 5th Airborne Pin Box Wedge part # DM6026 Extended 5th Airborne Pin Box Wedge...

  • Best Auto Slide 5TH Wheel Hitch For a 2022 Ford F-250 Super Duty With Factory Hitch Prep/Puck System
    I recommend using the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550038 for your 2022 Ford F-250 Super Duty with the factory prep/puck system and the short bed. This autosliding hitch will work with no adapters required on most campers that use a standard 12" to 14" wide pin box. For some cushioned pin boxes you will need the corresponding adapter plate for that pin box. Here is a list of the most common pin boxes that require an adapter.

  • Recommended Demco Hijacker Locking Plate for 5th Airborne Pin Boxes
    The 5th Airborne Premium Fifth Wheel Air Ride Coupler - 21,000 lbs Capacity # 5AB-E1621-610 is a replacement pin box for the Lippert 1621, 1621HD, Fabex 665, and M&M 665. All of these pin boxes are grouped as "extended" pin boxes because they have an angled pin box reaching toward the vehicle. Conventional pin boxes have little or no angle. Extended does not mean they always extend past the 5th wheel trailer but rather they have a king pin that extends out from the mounting brackets. I...

  • Demco Hijacker Autoslide Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Air Cushioned Pin Boxes
    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550034 is a sliding fifth wheel trailer hitch which you may need with a 6 foot bed. The advantage of the Hijacker over most hitches is that it slides automatically when turning so you don't need to get out of your truck and manually activate the sliding feature. To install the Hijacker in your 2004 Dodge Ram use the install kit # DM8552015-71. The Demco is fine to tow trailers that has a standard pin however you will need a different locking plate if...

  • Recommended 5TH Wheel Hitch For a Short Bed 2022 Ford F-250 With Prep/Puck In Bed Hitch System
    I recommend the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550024 for your 2022 Ford F-250. This hitch will drop into the factory prep/puck system and the auto sliding 5th wheel hitch will keep you from having to get out of your truck to reposition the hitch for maneuvering. The hitch is rated for up to 18,000lbs trailer capacity and 4,500lbs of maximum tongue weight.

  • Will the Demco Capture Plate Mounting Bolts Fit the 5th Airborne Premium Air Ride Coupler
    The 5th Airborne Premium Fifth Wheel Air Ride Coupler # 5AB-E1621-16K that you referenced will have the 2 mounting holes to install the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Locking Plate # DM6026 that you would need. The pin box in the picture was used for demonstration purposes which is why it doesn't have those holes. If you check out the attached picture of the 5th Airborne Premium Fifth Wheel Air Ride Coupler for Leland 7920 Trailer Frames, you can clearly see the 2 mounting holes.

  • Is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Compatible with a 5th Airborne Air Ride to Use on a 2017 Ford F-350
    The autosliding 5th wheel hitches are definitely the way to go with a truck bed that is under 8 feet, like your 2017 Ford F-350 with a 6-3/4 foot bed. I like to recommend them because they eliminate the need to get in and out of your truck when cornering. They also feature the single wraparound jaw for full 360-degree contact with the king pin and a 3/4 inch steel locking bar for added security. The cushioning that they provide helps to reduce chucking and jarring and the brackets on the...
