Secure Wraparound Jaw with Locking Bar

Wraparound Jaw

The single-piece, strong wraparound jaw completely surrounds your trailer's king pin for 360 degrees of contact. This wraparound jaw provides a more secure connection than standard 2-piece jaws that close in on the king pin from the sides. The increased jaw-to-king-pin contact on the UMS hitch offers tighter tolerances around the king pin, which minimizes both rattle and chucking, for a smooth, quiet ride.


A 3/4" thick solid steel locking bar spans the area in front of the jaw. This bar provides an added barrier of protection against accidental disconnection so you can have peace of mind that your trailer is secure. The locking bar is attached to the jaw and to the spring-loaded handle. The bar automatically locks when the jaw closes around your king pin


Double-Pivot, Cushioned Hitch Head

Double Pivoting Head

The double pivoting, cushioned head improves your towing experience dramatically by helping to reduce jarring and unwanted noise. Built-in pins allow the hitch head to pivot back and forth and side to side. And hookup is easy because the hitch head will automatically pivot to the proper angle when it comes into contact with your pin box.


Dampeners

Three polyurethane dampeners help to cushion the movement from the pivoting head and to reduce towing noise. Two of these dampeners are built into the head assembly to cushion the head's side-to-side pivoting. The third dampener cushions the back-and-forth motion and must be installed in the hitch prior to use. Installation of this third dampener is easy - simply press the dampener up into the pre-drilled hole underneath the hitch head.


Easy Installation and Simple Removal for Full Bed Access

This UMS Double Pivot hitch is specially designed to fit in the underbed rails of your Ford Super Duty factory fifth-wheel towing prep package. To assemble the hitch, all you have to do is bolt on the side plates and attach the head to the hitch base.


The side plates have 2 functions. They contain the feet that fit into your OEM tow package receivers, and they allow you to raise or lower the hitch head to better match your pin box height. After you choose your desired height setting, simply bolt the side plates to the hitch base with the included hardware. Then lower the hitch into the 4 puck receivers in your truck bed. Turn the handles to lock the feet into the pucks and secure the handles with the included safety pins. The hitch can be removed to give you full truck bed access. Simply remove the safety pins, turn the handles to unlock the feet, and lift the hitch out of the receivers.

Video Transcript for Review of Demco RV Fifth Wheel Hitch - For Chevrolet and GMC Towing Prep Package - DM47GV

Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Demco Hijacker UMS Double Pivot 5th Wheel Hitch. This 5th wheel hitch is going to mount in the bed of your 2020 and newer Chevrolet and GMC truck with the factory installed towing prep package. This is then going to allow you to hook up to your 5th wheel trailer so that you can pull your trailer with your Silverado or Sierra. This is going to be very fast and easy to get installed.

It's got these pucks that will work with your built-in factory underbed rails. So we'll just remove the pin here, open these up, drop it in place, and then we'll close those back up and that's going to lock those into your rails and then we'll pass this pin through here so we don't have to worry about those coming free as we're traveling. So very, very simple to get installed onto your truck. It's gonna take advantage of that factory underbed rail system so that if you we're to remove this, you're gonna have full access to your truck bed. You're not gonna have to worry about your rails being up above your truck bed.

So if you are gonna be towing your 5th wheel pretty frequently, but then also needing to take it out and have the full bed access, this will do a great job for you taking advantage of that system that you already have. This does have a sturdy steel construction so it is going to give us a gross towing weight capacity of 31,000 pounds. It also has a black powder coat finish over that steel construction, so it's gonna help resist rust and corrosion for us. We do have this wraparound single piece jaw that's gonna provide a nice secure connection around our king pin. It's gonna have 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact and so there's gonna be less rattle and more security than just a slide bar jaw style.

And then we're also going to have this three quarter-inch thick, solid steel locking bar that's gonna reinforce that connection for our coupled trailer. That's automatically gonna lock in place to make sure that our jaw is gonna be nice and stable. So extra reinforcement there with that to ensure that our king pin is not gonna be able to come out at all. We do have this spring loaded handle here on the side, that is how we're adjusting that. So as our king pin passes through it's gonna wrap around there, come back in place.

We've got pin here. They included clip. It's tethered in place so we don't have to worry about losing it. So we'll put that in and that's gonna lock it in place and when we're ready to disconnect, pull this out, get that locked out and then we'll pass that pin through there make sure that it's not going to collapse again on us and get it removed and then we'll be ready to get this put away when we're not using it. This head is a double pivot head and so it is going to pivot side to side like so. It's also going to pivot front and back so it is going to help prevent chucking. It's going to make it much easier to get hooked up as we're hooking up to our trailer. Inside, we do have cushioned polyurethane dampeners that are gonna help reduce noise and absorb your road shock. There are four different height settings here so that you can accommodate different applications. So the height adjustment range will be between 16 inches and 19 inches so you can adjust that simply by where you line up this inner portion here with these side plates. So very easy to accommodate those different applications. This is made here in the USA so you can trust it is gonna be good quality material, good workmanship, same quality that we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US. Couple different things that I'm not so crazy about with this system. It's mostly to do with this handle over here. So what I've been trying to get this to lock out to simulate if I we're to be uncoupling from the trailer, it is kind of difficult to get this to open up enough to make that real easy. Now, obviously I've got this just temporarily up on a table. Once you have it in your truck mounted in place, you might have a lot more stability and that might not be a big issue for you. But for me here, I do have to put my thumb in there to get that closed that's obviously not ideal, but I'm sure that's not gonna be the case once you get this mounted in place. And then the other small thing that kind of bothers me about this design. Once you have this pin in here, does kind of make contact with the side here so that seems to limit your pivoting of your head. You've gotta lift that up to get that not to bind there. So it seems like a little bit of a flaw in design in my opinion. Now, if I move this around to the backside that might help with some of that, but then our tether is kind of on the opposite side there so it seems a little counterintuitive, but still just a little, little poor in that fit there. So just a few minor things for me that seemed like could have been done a little bit better but overall, I think this is gonna provide a nice, sturdy connection for you for your GMC and Chevrolet trucks that have that factory prep package. This will fit right in place there, make it very easy to hook up to your trailer. So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
