Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve Review

So you got a new truck and it has a 3 inch hitch receiver but a lot of your accessories are either 2 1/2 inch or 2 inch. Well etrailer designed a sleeve so you can convert that 3 inch hitch receiver down to a 2 1/2 , or use them both together and convert it all the way down from 3 inches down to 2. To make sure that this is gonna work for you either the 2 1/2 sleeve or the 2 inch sleeve, the distance from your accessory to the center of its hitch pin hole, just make sure that it's around 2 1/2 inches, 'cause that's our measurement right here. And then from the hitch receiver side to the center of the hitch pin hole, it's gonna be 3 3/16 of an inch. So just make sure that you have enough room inside your hitch receiver so it doesn't hit your spare tire or anything like that. And the overall length of the whole entire thing, which is both sleeves, is about 6 5/16 of an inch.

The best way that I've found to install this is not just to put it in the hitch and then put your accessory on it. I like to just put it on the accessory, line up those holes and then insert it in. This way, you'll be able to kind of line everything up and I can use that same exact pin that I used before that'll go all the way through it and then you can put that clip on the end, too. One thing I would suggest, just because reducer sleeves can be pretty useful to a lot of different people. I suggest locking it down.

You can grab this out on our website. It does not come with it but it is a very useful thing for all your accessories just so you know they're not gonna go anywhere whenever you leave your truck alone. Same goes for our 2 inch hitch accessories, like our etrailer bike rack. So all we wanna do is just put both sleeves on, line up the holes, and then we can work this way in all at the same time. And we just need to get those holes to line up.

One thing to think about if you do have an anti-rattle bolt like this, it's not gonna be long enough to go all the way through to the other end. So we're not gonna really wanna use that. And a 5/8 inch diameter pin is gonna be a little too thick to go through that accessory. We do have some other pins available on our website, but just know that is something you might run into with your 2 inch accessories. It's just really nice to be able to use all of our accessories regardless of what size they are on whatever type of hitch we may have, and our reducer sleeves are gonna allow you to do that.

And that's pretty much it for our look at the etrailer 3 inch to 2 1/2 and 2 inch hitch 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.

  • Is it Safe to Use More Than One Reducer Sleeve to Go From 3" to 2" Receiver Size
    It's definitely okay to use 2 sleeves to reduce your 3" receiver down to a 2" receiver. We actually have our Reducer Sleeve Kit # e33YR which this setup. If you'd feel safer with 1 solid piece then it sounds like you're wanting the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302 which does give you a little bit of extension but also means you aren't using 2 pieces just to get down to the desired receiver size.

  • Why Does the Buyers Products 3 to 2 Receiver Tube Adapter Reduce Weight Capacity
    In regards to the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter part # 337RTA302 which is a great option for a Ford F-350, the adapter will actually reduce the towing capacity of the trailer hitch and vehicle while in use to 12,000 lbs of gross trailer weight and 1,200 lbs of tongue weight. The reason that this adapter reduces capacity is because it extends the connection beyond the receiver. If you're looking for a reducer which does not reduce capacity, I recommend the Trailer Hitch...
