Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Hijacker Autoslide Locking Plate for Extended 5th Airborne Pin Boxes. This is going to be an adapter plate to take up a gap between your king pin, and your Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch.It's an easy bolt on installation. All you have to do is attach the one side to the front of your pin box, which is gonna slide around that, and capture there with that hook, and then at the back you'll attach it using the two bolts, and lock nuts that are provided with this.So, it just slides on, and mounts up really simple, and ready to go. The way it works, as you can see, we have this welded adapter on the underside of the plate, and that's gonna be what takes up the gap between that king pin, and your 5th-Wheel trailer hitch.This is designed to work with the extended length, or longer 5th Airborne pin boxes. And this does have a nice corrosion-resistant, durable, carbide black powder coat finish, so it's gonna stay looking nice for a really long time.So, as you can see, that's what it's gonna look like from the underside, and that's, again gonna take up that gap between your king pin, and that 5th-Wheel trailer hitch. This is made in the USA, and it comes with a five year limited warranty from Demco.And that's gonna do it for our look at the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Locking Plate for Extended 5th Airborne Pin Boxes..

  • Is a Lube Plate Needed with a Demco HiJacker Auto-Slide and Locking Plate DM6062
    You would not need a lube plate with a Demco HiJacker Autosliding 5th wheel trailer hitch because the hitch head will turn with the trailer pin box. The locking plate # DM6062 has a piece on the bottom that wedges into the hitch head funnel. Then the force of making the turn will rotate the head and engage the auto-sliding feature.

  • Does Locking Plate for Demco Hijacker and 5th Airborne Pin Box Affect Performance of Pin Box

  • Locking Plate for Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Hitch Used with 5th Airborne Pin Box 5AB-E1621610
    Since your Reese 5th Airborne pin box 5AB-E1621610 is considered a long/extended type, you will want to use Demco locking plate # DM6062 along with your Hijacker 5th wheel 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.

  • Recommended Locking Plates For Demco Autoslide 5th Wheel To Use With 5th Airborne Pin Box
    You will need locking plates for your 5th Airborne to be able to use it with a Demco Autoslide like part # DM8550034. If you have a standard-length 5th Airborne kingpin you will need part # DM6026, and if you have an extended-length 5th Airborne kingpin you will need part # DM6062.

  • 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...

  • Is There a Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Solution for 2021 Wolf Pack 365PACK16
    I have a fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter solution for a trailer that has a Rhino pin box like your 2021 Wolf Pack 365pack16 but there are no Goose Boxes that can fit in place of the Rhino. Instead you'd want the part # CAB-C5G which attaches to the king pin of your current pin box and converts it to gooseneck coupler.

  • Compatibility of Demco AutoSlide 5th Wheel Hitch with Valley Above-Bed Base Rails
    For a Demco 18K Hijacker Autoslide hitch that fits into your Valley industry-standard base rails you'll use part # DM8550034 which is shown in the linked video. You will need a locking plate; use part # DM6026 if you have a standard 5th Airborne pin box; use part # DM6062 if you have an extended type pin box. If you need a wiring harness you can use part # DM8555002 which plugs right in to your existing bumper-mounted 7-way.

    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider part # DM8550034 works with most standard pin boxes for the exception of Sidewinder or Revolution's. However, if you have one of the following pin boxes: Glide Ride, Mor Ryde, Trailair Tri Glide, Trailair Flexair, Rota Flex, and 5th Airborne then you will need a locking plate to prevent the kingpin from rotating inside your hitch.

  • 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.

  • Best Sliding 5TH Wheel Hitch For a 2022 Ford F-350 6-3/4' Short Bed
    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550038 is the best sliding 5th wheel hitch that will fit into your factory prep/puck system on your 2022 Ford F-350. As an auto-sliding hitch you will no longer need to get out and unlock your hitch to move it from maneuvering to towing positions when you need to make tight turns. The hitch will move itself back up to 14" when you turn to ensure you do not damage your truck and 5th wheel trailer. There are some non standard pin boxes that...

  • What Captures Plates Are Needed To Use the 5th Airborne Pin Box With a Demco Hijacker
    I do have an option for you but there is not a version of the 5th Airborne Premium Fifth Wheel Air Ride Coupler part # 5AB-E1621-610 that has a wider skid plate which will then fit tighter against the capture plates on the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # DM8550034. The solution as you have alluded to and what Demco recommends is using a wedge rather than the capture plate system, the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Locking Plate for Extended 5th Airborne Pin Boxes part...

  • 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...

  • Height of 5th Airborne Pin Box 5AB-E510-710 and Locking Plate to Use with Demco Auto-Sliding Hitch
    By my calculations the distance from the top most part of 5th Airborne coupler # 5AB-E510-710 to the skid plate is approximately 10-3/4 inches. Pin boxes like this fit in place of specific factory pin boxes. This one fits in place of Fabex 500, 503, 765 and 770, Lippert 1716, or RBW 7028 pin boxes. To use a 5th Airborne pin box with a Demco auto sliding 5th wheel trailer hitch you just need the proper locking plate which would be # DM6062 for the above 5th Airborne.

  • 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...

    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. This hitch will fit most pin boxes that are 12" - 14" wide but you may need a separate locking plate if you have a specialty...

  • Recommended Sidewinder for 2021 Wolf Pack 365Pack16
    Thank you for the photo, I reached out to Lippert with that information and they confirmed you have a Lippert 1621 pin box. You can use the Sidewinder # RP34FR as a replacement for that pin box. This will move the pivot point back 22 inches for turning clearance. There is a specific wedge # RP74FR that is compatible with your Demco Hitch, but it does use the 2 bolts to secure in place. We haven't had any issues with the bolted wedges not working perfectly, so I wouldn't hesitate to use...
