Video Transcript for Review of Thule Hitch Adapters - Hitch Extender For 2 Inch Receiver - TH55JV

Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today, we're gonna take a look at Thule's hitch extender for two-inch receivers. This hitch extender extends your two-inch hitch receiver opening out from the rear of your vehicle to avoid obstacles such as a rear mounted spare tire. The two pin holes are going to let you choose between seven inches or nine inches of extra length. It also provides a 2 1/4 inch drop for trucks with a tailgate or a rise for ground clearance over steep driveways and uneven terrain.

The anti-rattle hitch pin that is included is going to secure this extender to your vehicle. This is made in the USA of durable black powder coated steel that's going to resist corrosion. The weight capacity is 250 pounds. I'm gonna pull out my tape measure here and give you some overall dimensions. Looking at the overall length, we are sitting right at 13 7/8 inches long.

And the height, we are sitting right at 4 1/2 inches tall. And at the widest point, we are sitting right at 2 1/2 inches wide. Now, this itself weighs about 10 pounds and it does have a limited lifetime warranty. Again, this will include the anti-rattle hitch pin, the tightening tool for that hitch pin, and also instructions to help you installing this to your hitch receiver. It is important to note that this adapter is designed to carry a bike rack only.

So, do not use this to tow a vehicle or trailer. And when using a hitch mounted accessory such as a bike rack, the tongue weight of your hitch will be reduced by at least 50%. Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy.

Thank you for joining me..

This one did the trick! I had to adapt my bike rack my new suv: A flat 12” extender put the rack out too far for most parking spaces, and a 7” didn’t allow the gate-mounted spare to clear the rack. Enter Thule design. The 7” hole with the 2” drop feature is perfect, and having the 9” extension option is just really thoughtful and perhaps what other users need. Also, etrailer was great to work with as I went through the process of experimentation and returns. Thanks.

See what our Experts say about this Thule Hitch Adapters

  • Can Blue Ox High-Low Adapter Be Used for Bike Rack/Cargo Carrier
    I do have an option for you but we don't recommend using high-low adapters for hitch mounted accessories as they are designed for flat-towing and with a flat-towed vehicle, there is no tongue weight unlike a hitch mounted accessory which is all tongue weight. The best option we offer is the Thule Hitch Extender for 2" Receivers part # TH55JV which will provide a rise of up to 2-1/4". The adapter will also reduce weight capacity by 50% which is unavoidable.

  • How To Get More Ground Clearance with Curt Cargo Carrier
    I do have an option for you but you can't simply replace the shank on your cargo carrier for one that offers more ground clearance. That said, you can add an adapter such as the Thule Hitch Extender for 2" Receivers part # TH55JV but keep in mind this will reduce your hitch capacity by fifty percent. Instead, I recommend a new carrier with built-in rise like the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # e98874.

  • Is There a Hitch Riser to Prevent Cargo Carrier from Bottoming-Out
    I do have options for you but using receiver adapters reduce capacity such as the Thule Hitch Extender for 2" Receivers part # TH55JV which could provide an additional 2-1/4" of ground clearance but will also reduce carrying capacity by 50%. Instead, I recommend a cargo carrier with a built-in rise like the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # e29UR which is better suited for low ground clearance vehicles as the shank has a built-in 2" rise without sacrificing capacity.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock For The Thule Hitch Extender # TH55JV
    When it comes to upgrading the included hitch pin to a locking pin on The Thule Hitch Extender for 2 inch Receivers # TH55JV you will need to get The Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # THSTL2. This anti rattle pin works on both 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Thule hitch mounted racks. If you have thicker hitch walls, you may need the longer 6 inch pin # TH62RE (sold separately). I attached a review video link below.

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation to Fit Yakima OnRamp On RV
    Thank you for reaching out and providing all of the details! I have a solution for you to extend the Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # Y36FR further out from your Arctic Fox 5th wheel RV but I think it's at least worth noting 2 things; the weight capacity of your trailer hitch will be cut in half when using the extension (like you said) and that the OnRamp isn't rated for use at the back of a 5th wheel as Yakima states there is too much movement so the rack can't handle it....
