Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Extender Review

Sometimes some of the accessories get a little too close to our vehicle. That's why etrailer designed this seven inch extension for your inch and a quarter hitch. This is gonna install just like any other accessory. We just put it in there. We then line up the hitch pin hole. And once it's lined up, we can put our hitch pin through.

And this hitch pin does not come with it, so you will need to grab one separately if you don't already have one. Now, you can just take your inch and a quarter accessory and install it just like you did before with your hitch. But now, we're just putting it on the extension. And if you do have an anti-rattle bolt like we do on the Hitching Post Pro, it will still fit and thread in just fine. And now this solves our problem.

Now I have plenty of room to go in between my accessory and the trunk, so I can use my vehicle exactly how I did before when this was installed, but just a simple seven inch extension does make a big difference. Some dimensions for you. The distance between the center of each of these holes is seven inches. Then on the hitch receiver side, we have an inch and a half from here to the end. And then over here, we have two inches from the center to the end of our accessory side of the extender.

This is gonna give us an overall length of 10 1/2 inches. One thing to note, whenever we have this in here, we do not want to use this for any towing applications, just because it is gonna cut our hitch capacity in half. So also keep note of that as well to make sure we're not overloading our hitch or our accessory. The accessory itself is going to have a 350 pound gross tongue rating. All the other options that you see on our site are not gonna be for towing and also are gonna cut your capacity in half.

So it's not just the etrailer extender, it's all of them on the site. I think the main thing with this is just getting the right amount of length, and I think seven inches is pretty much perfect for either clearance for your spare tire or just to gain a little bit more access to the back of your vehicle. And that's pretty much it for a look at the etrailer inch and a quarter seven inch hitch extender..

Great perfect



by:

Very well made,arrived early, will be used to extend my hitch further away from my bumper,have mounted a mini tire changer to my receiver hitch ,this extender allows me to change a little larger tire



by:

Extender arrived on time. It fit the hitch well with minimal play. I did apply some grease to the insert tang to prevent rust from friction of the two metal parts and to make it easier to slide the extender in and out. My only suggestion is that the cotter pin should come packagers with the extender



by:

Received timely and in good condition. I’m happy customer.!

Ordered this to fit with an eTrailer hitch for my Rav4. This was recommended as the correct extender by live chat support. Does not fit. Will not line up for the bolt to engage threads in the receiver. Also the lock is very wiggly and does not hold the extender firmly in the receiver. Super disappointed.



by:

I would definitely give these items and more importantly your sales and service. 5 stars
My new F150 has a taller tailgate and the hitch receiver is farther under the bumper than my old ‘06 F250. It is also a little higher off the ground.
One picture shows how the tailgate hits tongue Jack on my utility trailer.
The ball was 8” from the receiver. The extension and new 4” drop ball mount move the ball to 14”.
So now the tailgate can open completely. Of course I needed to lengthen the chains and wiring pigtail. The trailer is only rated for 2900 lbs so it won’t exceed the decrease in load rating.



by:

The hitch extender is axactly what I needed. I recently put a flat bed on my pickup truck and the hitch was no longer long enough to use until I got the extender. E trailer customer service was awesome as well



by:

I ordered a trailer hitch extension and it got lost in shipping. The folks at Etrailer immediately took care of me and shipped another one that I received 3 days later. Thank you everyone for your help!



by:

Ashley is awesome. You should be glad that you have her Her customer service skills go above and beyond especially in today’s world. I would be proud to have had her work for me . The hitch extension was as advertised. The hitch extension and rear brackets were a day late which cost me extra time, into this Monday to get installed. Also missed the weekend for camping.



by:

Can't mount the bike rack without it. Works well and is easy to use.



by:

Great website,easy ordering, recieved item as shown in reasonable time. TY etrailer



by:

Very High quality product, as has been everything else that I have purchased from E Trailer. Purchased to allow me to open the tailgate on my Wrangler with a carrier installed. I will try to post pictures as soon as I use it.
