Video Transcript for Tow Ready Hitch Adapter Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the tow ready hitch adapter. So if you have a two inch hitch like I do on my vehicle, but you have an accessory that needs an inch and a quarter, this is going to convert it down to that size. But with any type of converter, we are going to be adding a little bit of length to the back, and this is gonna cut our hitches capacity in half. So right now my gross trailer weight of my hitch is 12,000 pounds. So now it's 6,000 pounds. The tongue weight is about 600 pounds and now it's 300 pounds.

So just look at your hitch, see what it's rated for. And if you're using this, just cut all that in half and try not to exceed that at all. But what really sets this one apart from some of the others, it's really low, check this out. So this is going to be great for maybe a truck. If you want to keep an accessory in there and still be able to lower your tailgate.

But for me, what's going to be really nice for is getting a hanging style bike rack on here. So I don't have to take the bikes off to access my hatch. Let me take this. This is the hitching post pro and slide it in there and whatever accessory you plan on putting in here like this one does have a anti-rattle bolt and a pin. So you don't have to grab one, but if your accessory doesn't have one, you will have to grab one on our website because it doesn't come with any of them for the inch and a quarter hitch pin hole.

We're going to need a half inch pin and it does not come with it. So grab it on our website. And then for the two inch one, we're going to need a five, eight diameter pin to go through. But for the hitching post pro, I already have one, but let me just throw this bike on here, just so you can see that now with this extender, since we're not really supposed to tilt these with the bikes on there, I'm just gonna lay it on that for now, but now I can still access the whole entire back of my vehicle. Pretty closely.

My handlebars do hit a little bit, but not the rack. So that's really nice. That's one of the examples. If you have a car or maybe like a cargo carrier or something like that, it's gonna help with that as well. A lot of different applications where this extra 14 inches is gonna be coming handy. So from the center of this hitch pin hole to the center of the other hitch pin hole, it's 14 inches this also going to be really nice for some of the RVs. If you have some of those ladders and maybe your bike handlebars are hitting it, or any other type of situation on RV. also for you Jeep people out there. When that back wields it's a little bit bigger, maybe you swapped out some big 35. A lot of the time, these hanging style bike racks, aren't really gonna work that well. Or with the cargo carriers, it's going to be kind of difficult to really maximize the amount of space you're using, just because of that tire. So this is gonna be very, very useful. when it comes to what you're gonna need to grab along with this, of course, we're gonna want to get two different pins cause they don't come with anything. But what I would suggest if you're like me and you like to lock everything into place, make sure you get two locking ones, just because I can lock my bike rack to this, but they still can just go up and just take the adapter with them. So definitely want to get two sets of locks. And if you go on our website, you can get them kind of key to lock as well. So that's kind of nice. You only have to mess with one type of key, but when it comes to hitch, extenders and reducers, all of them are gonna cut your hitches capacity in half. Doesn't really matter how long it is, as long as it's even just an inch out from your normal hitch receiver. It's going to cut it in half. So might as well get as much length as you can because its gonna be the same thing, 14 inches or two inches. It'll cut it all in half. So keep that in mind. We just want to make sure you guys are nice and safe. This thing is made of steel powder-coated finish, not going to rust away and just gonna get the job done and just enable your car to do a little bit more. I think it's gonna be a great option for you. And again, this was the tow ready, 14 inch hitch. Reducer..

etrailer was the ONLY location where I was able to find exactly what I was looking for, and the service/delivery time were fantastic. This adapter fits my needs perfectly, it is easy to install, and provides the requisite distance out from my trailer hitch to ensure no damage to my vehicle's tailgate.

This 2 in to 11/4 adapter worked excellent to be able to use our bike rack between our 2 vehicles. Quality of product is excellent. Would recommend this to anyone.

- 80301

We needed help fast. Fla vacation approaching quick, our bike rack wasn't going to fit the RV, the extension we had wasn't the right one... what to do? Call etrailer, of course! Customer service talked us through measurements, proper tounge weight, made us aware of needed pins and hardware. Received the product fast and in time for vaca. It fit perfectly, was the right length for the extension we needed. Is sturdy enough to handle the weight we are putting on it... And, we had all the hardware we needed to install.

Great products hitch and wiring harness worked correctly and that's what I expected. great install video

- 80301

Very pleased with the company and product. The part came a day sooner than expected. The part itself is well made and fit without excessive gaps in the receiver that could cause noise. I was happy to see a "Made In USA" sticker on it. There have been so many foreign made products lately so when this had a USA sticker on it (it may sound silly but) it made me proud to own it.

Thorough, clear, simple process to place order, arrived in a quick time frame Very satisfied.

Ask the Experts about this Tow Ready Hitch Adapters

  • Using Hitch Adapter, part # 80301 with hitch for 2008 Toyota Sequoia
    Yes, this will work for you. This adapter, part # 80301, will convert a 2-inch hitch to a 1-1/4 inch hitch opening. That said, one concern is that it will cut your hitch tongue weight in half. So if your 2008 Sequoia has a 600 lb tongue weight (tongue weight is usually 10 percent of your hitch capacity), then with the adapter, your tongue weight will be reduced to 300 lbs. This is still plenty to use with your bike rack, just keep in mind that the 300 lbs includes the weight of the bikes...

The Tow Ready # 80301 will extend 14" to allow your bike rack to clear the spare tire. Keep in mind that using a hitch adapter will reduce the tongue weight rating of your hitch by 50%.

  • Recommended Hitch Adapter to Extend and Reduce 2 Inch Receiver on Subaru Crosstrek
    For the 2 inch hitch receiver on your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek, I recommend looking at the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter # MT70033. This adapter will slide right into your existing 2 inch receiver and provide a 1-1/4 inch receiver on the other end for use with compatible accessories. It also features an overall length of 11 inches and a 7 inch measurement from the hitch pin hole on your current trailer hitch to the hitch pin hole on the adapter. If you need a bit more extension,...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda CR-V to Use 2 inch Hitch Bike Rack
    We have the # HTAD which converts a 1-1/4 inch hitch to a 2 inch hitch but since these adapters cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent and add some movement this isn't an ideal solution. Instead the customers best option would be a 2 inch hitch like the # 76128 which will work directly with the bike rack.
