Video Transcript for etrailer 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve Review

So you have a 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver, but you have some two inch accessories you'd like to use like a bike rack or even maybe just a ball mount. Well, etrailer's got you covered, we designed a sleeve that is gonna help us convert it over from 2 1/2 to two inches, so you can use your favorite accessories. To make sure this is gonna work with your vehicle and your accessory, here are some measurements. Overall, the length is 5 1/2 inches, but then, on the longer side, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the receiver side right here, is gonna be three inches, then on the other side, from the center to the end, which is the accessory side, is gonna be 2 1/2 inches. I have noticed that it's a little bit easier to get everything all lined up if we just line it up on our accessory and then put these both in together. You just put it in just like any other accessory, but with a little bit more gentleness just to make sure that those holes continue to line up.

So we don't wanna be sticking our fingers through there. One thing I did notice though, if you do have an anti-rattle bolt like this and it's for the two inch hit receiver, it's not really gonna stick out far enough for us to put a pin on there, so that is something to kinda think about, and if you have this kind of bolt, a 5/8 inch diameter pin is gonna be a little too thick, so you might wanna go ahead and grab an extra long bolt or pin on our website, it doesn't come with it, but that's something you might run into. There are two different ways where we can reduce our hitch size, there's gonna be the sleeve that we're looking at right now, but then there's also this one, this is gonna reduce it from 2 1/2 to two, but you notice how we have two holes right here, one's gonna be to secure to our hitch, the other's gonna be for our accessory. This extension will cut your capacity of your hitch in half, but when you're just using the sleeve, everything stays the same. Whether it's a ball mount or a bike rack like you see right here, this sleeve is gonna allow us to use those two inch accessories on our 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver.

And that's pretty much it for a look at the etrailer adapter sleeve..

Review from a similar etrailer Hitch Reducer in Hitch Adapters


Wanted this adapter so I could use my 1 1/4" bike rack on my 2" hitch. Sized is reduced by welded steel plates inside the reducer. Poor tolerances. Was more like 1 3/8" inside width, so my 1 1/4" bike rack mount flops over to one side or the other.


Comments
I hate to hear that the adapter is not working for your bike rack. I am having our engineering department look into this for you.

Review from a similar etrailer Hitch Reducer in Hitch Adapters


This etrailer product was the least expensive 1.25" adapter I could find. The product works as advertised but the inside clearance is little large when my bike rack is installed compared to when I install the bike rack on my other vehicle which has a 1.25" receiver hitch. I plan to use a small piece of sheet metal to act a shim in order to take up some of the slack.

Review from a similar etrailer Hitch Reducer in Hitch Adapters


your parts were sloppy tolerences and did not fit together well. had to buy another hitch reducer from another company.


Comments
There may be looseness using the extender due to how the receiver hitch was machined. When manufacturer it can happen where the receiver will be on the bigger side of two inches as it may be be exactly two inches. This happens with any kind of accessory. I recommend using an anti rattle device such as part # RSCP

Review from a similar etrailer Hitch Reducer in Hitch Adapters


This adapter works much better than etrailer's 7" adapter since it basically consists of the 7" adapter with a 1 1/4" hitch throat welded to it. This allows bike racks to fit much more snug & also allows enough length to use etrailer's combo locking pin/anti hitch rattle device which, in addition to providing security for the adapter, essentially eliminates any play of the adapter in a 2" receiver. My bike rack doesn't sway or bounce in the least with the anti-rattle device.

  • Can Trailer Hitch Reducer Be Used For Towing on 2022 Ram 2500 Diesel
    It is perfectly acceptable to use a hitch reducer sleeve so you can use your ball mount on your 2022 Ram 2500. The Trailer Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve - 2-1/2" to 2" # e26YR is a great choice for this. Also, unlike an adapter, this will not reduce the capacity of your hitch. If you want a lock to go with it that will fit the reducer sleeve as well as your 2-1/2" receiver you can use the etrailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches - Flush - 3-5/8" Span - Chrome # e98881.
