Video Transcript for Review of Draw-Tite Hitch Adapters - 3 Inch to 2-1/2 Inch Reducer - 58552

Today we're going to take a quick look at the Draw-Tite Reducer Sleeve. This allows you to use a three inch hitch with two and a half inch accessories, so it just reduces that sleeve that opening down as the name suggests. It's going to have a five eighths diameter pinhole, so we can use that with any pin or locking hip pin that has that five eighths diameter. You can see our outer dimension there is three inches, the inner dimension is two and a half. It's pretty easy to use, just slide it into your hitch and then line that up with the hitch pin holes and your accessory and get that installed. That's really the trickiest part is getting everything to line up all at once, so you definitely don't want to use your finger to do that or else you'll end up like this with a mashed up, bruised finger.

If you need to line it up use the hitch pin or your locking pin to get that all in a line.As far as our other dimensions, it measures about six inches long and then of course it's going to be three inches on both sides. It does come with a one year limited warranty from Draw-Tite. It has a durable, metal shield finish and this can be used with weight distribution systems. That's going to do it for our look at the Draw-Tite Reducer Sleeve.

This adapter sleeve lets you use 2-1/2" towing and hitch-mounted accessories with your 3" hitch receiver. Durable Metalshield finish. Can be used with weight distribution.


I have a small utility trailer made many years ago with junkyard springs. The springs needed to be re-arched, which moved the axle relatively forward too much. So the axle had to be moved rearward, which meant new spring hanger brackets. Unfortunately, the junkyard springs did not match the width of any available spring hangers. Hence my project.

I purchased two Reese hitch adapters - 3 inch to 2-1/2 inch - which gave me a good inside dimension for the brackets. I only have hand tools so I did the cutting and fabrication by hand, then found someone to weld the brackets in the correct positions.

Attached please find several pictures which tell the story. Now that I have found you, if I need any other parts, I will certainly get them from you.


Just what I needed for the new truck!

  • Will the 17K Strait-Line Weight Distribution System Work With 3 Shank
    In order to use the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System part # RP66075 with a 3" trailer hitch you'll need the Equalizer Weight Dist Shank part # EQ90-02-4800 and the Draw-Tite Reducer Sleeve part # 58552. There isn't a weight distribution system with solid 3" shank unfortunately.

  • Weight Distribution & Sway Control For 16,000 Pound Trailer With 1600 Pounds Tongue Weight
    The Equal-I-Zer # EQ64FR Weight Distribution Hitch with 4-point sway control is the perfect choice and can handle tongue weights of up to 1600 pounds, and tow capacities up to 16,000 pounds. You will like that it fits directly into your Ford's 2-1/2” hitch receiver without having to use a downsizing 2” shank. I like that the clamp on brackets replace the older style chain hangers that have to be released to back up. Also the 4-point sway control is among the best in the business. For...

  • Is There A Pintle Adapter Available For A B&W Tow And Stow Ball Mount In A 3 Hitch
    Though I may have another option available for you, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS30049B is not available with a pintle hitch as of yet. With that being said, there are actually no current options available for the 3" hitches being used, so you will need to use a reducer, like the # 58552, if you do not already have one. This will allow you to go one of two ways. First will be the Curt Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2-1/2" Hitches # C45908. This is rated to 20,000 pounds and...
