Today, we're going to take a look at the rubber hitch cover for 1 1/4" trailer hitches. This is for a quantity of 1. Now, this hitch cover will protect your receiver from any dirt and debris. It is a nice, durable rubber construction. It's going to have the logo in raised lettering, right here on the front face. Now, this cover is designed to be pushed into the receiver opening.

There's no pins or clips needed to hold it in place, because it's a nice, durable rubber construction. When you push it in, it'll fit nice and snug and it will not vibrate out. Again, the application on this is for 1 1/4" X 1 1/4" trailer hitch receivers and again, this is for a quantity of 1. What I want to do is give you the measurement, overall. This is a square design, so I'm going to give you the overall measurement, just to let you know how big it is. It's going to be right at about 2" X about 2" and the one I'm going to show you is ...

I got example of here's what a 1 1/4" hitch receiver would look like on the back of your vehicle, so instead of just leaving it like that, you can actually take this nice plug, push it again, nice and snug in, and you can see that it'll give you a nice, clean look at the back of your vehicle, plus seal that around there, so nothing'll get inside your hitch receiver opening. That should do it for the review on the rubber hitch cover, for 1 1/4" trailer hitches, quantity of 1.

This black rubber hitch cover protects your receiver from dirt and debris when your hitch is not in use. No pins or clips needed.


It's a rubber receiver cover, it says etrailer. Well made, stays in the receiver. We shall see how well it does over the winter.



Cover still works well a year later. Strangely I haven’t lost it yet.


I received this trailer Hitch and was really Surprised how Professionally manufactured it looked for the price. I have never installed a trailer hitch before but it was really easy and only took me about 30 minutes, the trick was to use a floor jack if you plan to install it by yourself like I did.
I will definitely use etrailer in the future.


Received the product today and it's awesome! Very well made and it will look great and protect my investment i.e trailer hitch . Love this company!



Nothing has changed in a years time. Awesome product and company.Other products from other companies are cheaply made and dry out over time but not this one.


We wanted covers on both the hitches we got from this one is for a hitch weve had for a few years back for my 03 Honda civic SI. Hitch is still working great and now we have this cool cover.


My order arrived quickly and damage free! Looks great! Half the price that the dealership wanted for installing a hitch. I ordered the rubber hitch cover to protect the hitch from dirt and debris.
Very happy with my purchase.

Warren M.


After installing the hitch to my car it’s just like new it’s holding up well. Totally satisfied with this purchase! Highly recommend!


Excellent product. Fit perfectly. But was very challenging installing. Unlike the many videos showing otherwise. Took me about three hours. But I did it by myself. Looks awesome. Can't wait to do some recreational towing..



No problems or issues with the hitch. Ive used it just once on a lighweight trailer to the dump.Very solid hitch at a good price.


The rubber hitch cover look good and are reasonable in terms of pricing. I am pleased with the company, they keep you up to date on the shipping process and location until it is delivered to your home.



it is still look like new, I am glad I found it on your website, it is a good investment.


The rubber is starting to crack at the rubber strap where it locks on, but the plug itself still works well!


Simplistic look, durable, fits well. And I don't mind advertising because I had a great experience with my hitch purchase! Besides, the logo is subtle. The price is right, too!


I rated poor because within the first month the rubber hitch cover was missing permanently!


Really nice product, cover fits perfectly into the receiver.
Would have been a 5-star, but every time I take the cover off I feel like I am going to loose it. If there was a way to attach it when it is not inserted into the receiver it would have been Excellent.



Still working nicely, nice and firm fit into the receiver. Would still like a way to attach it.


Very good service and I received the order in a reasonable time. The trailer hitch is a very easy to install and the trailer wiring harness also. Thank you and I will definitely be using your company again, 5 stars. Nelson B. Québec, Canada.


My order was shipped (free shipping) the day after the order was placed. It was received on time and complete. I installed my hitch myself in less than 30 minutes and mounted my existing rack. I could not be more satisfied with the experience with etrailer and their overall service. Etrailer sets a new standard for customer service. I will gladly recommend them to my friends.


Great clean look to finish off my tow h itch.


Perfect fit!


It's made of rubber and covers the hitch, like a boss. Five stars!

(At least I suppose it does. To be honest, there's been a bike rack plugged into my hitch for the past year.)


I got it quick and it fit perfectly.



I still have it in there and its working just fine.

@Joseph Awesome, glad to hear your # 22281 etrailer hitch cover is working well for you!


as advertised


Good looking product with the exception to the fit... I feel it's a bit loose and after awhile fall out.



When in use, still does the job... hasnt fallen out yet.


Was not a snug fit, it fell out after the first use, and didn't find a need to replace it.


Solid construction. Thanks for the installation video. Did the installation at home.. straight forward, about 30 minutes. Very happy.


The only problem with the hitch is that it sticks out 4” beyond the bumper.


Fits perfectly with my trailer hitch. It arrived wrapped with my hitch.


Not much to tell here, Etrailer as delivered as always 100% easy work finding my hitch, placing the order and checking out was a breeze and as Always despite the aprox day of delivery it Always makes in 2 day from the day I order.
I open the box this morning, the hitch is exactly as described, excellent quality, 1hr install and it's all good!
Thank you


Nice little touch to close out the hitch receiver!

    For your hitch cover on your 1996 Plymouth Neon, I recommend the Rubber Hitch Cover for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitches - Qty 1 # 22281. There is also the Rubber Tube Cover 1-1/4" # 2211.

  • Recommendation for Installing 2 Inch Hitch Cover on 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Receiver
    I recommend first verifying the receiver size on your vehicle, as a 1-1/2 inch hitch is very uncommon. We do not have any adapters available for this sized hitch receiver. If you actually have a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver, you will just need to use an adapter like the Brophy # HTAD. This adapter will slide into your existing hitch receiver and provide a 2 inch receiver opening that you can use with your cover. We do also have a large selection of hitch covers that fit directly with 1-1/4...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2011 BMW 328i
    Unfortunately we do not have a hitch listed as a fit for your 2011 BMW 323i. In general, all of our products are designed for vehicles in the U.S.A. but it is highly unlikely that they are different than the Canadian models but again are not specifically designed.

  • Recommended Rubber Hitch Cover For 1-1/4 Inch Receiver
    We do not modify the Hitch Reducer # HTAD. Cutting the adapter will void the warranty. We do offer a rubber hitch cover # 22281. This will fit in the 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver and helps protect the end of the receiver by keeping dirt and debris out of the hitch.

  • Can Lubricant be Used to Help With Installing Bike Rack Into Hitch Receiver
    If you are having trouble installing your hitch mounted bike rack into a trailer hitch receiver, like the Draw-Tite # 24808 for your 2009 Toyota Prius, then I'd first recommend making sure that the receiver is cleaned out and free of debris. If it is clean then there may just be some extra powder coating on the inside. We have had customers who tried filing it out but you can definitely try some WD40 first if you have some handy.

  • Hitch Recommendation For 2020 Infiniti Q50
    Our Class I Curt Trailer Hitch # C11407 will fit your vehicle, and while it is not completely hidden, it protrudes very minimally from the rear of the vehicle. You can also get a hitch cover such as the # 22281 to give it more of a finished look when not in use, as well as protect it from any dust or debris that can enter the receiver tube when left open.

  • Recommended Hitch Cover for Curt Class I Trailer Hitch on 2015 Acura TLX
    For a rubber hitch cover that will work perfectly with the Class I Curt trailer hitch installed on your 2015 Acura TLX, I recommend the Curt # C22271 or the # 22281. Either option will push right into the hitch receiver to protect it from dirt and debris when you aren't using it for towing. I have attached a couple short video demonstrations on these covers that you can also check out.

  • Hitch Recommendation For 2013 Buick Verano
    Yes, the Draw-Tite Class I - 1-1/4" # 24882 will work well for you, assuming your Verano is not a Turbo or Dual Exhaust model. This hitch will support a hauling gross trailer weight (GTW) of 2,000 lbs. It's a good idea to check your owner's manual for your Verano to ensure the weight of your cargo trailer does not exceed your Verano's hauling limit. For the best experience in pulling a cargo trailer with your Verano, I also recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118564 , the Draw-Tite...

  • Can I Remove My Spare Tire With Hitch Receiver Installed
    The crossbar on the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11002 is bowed outward towards the rear of your 2013 Honda Accord Crosstour to allow for removal of the spare tire while installed. This is further explained at the :20 second mark in the attached video of an older hitch. The Curt has a similar design. When using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, you will also need to use the required Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap part # 18050 to secure all non-towing accessories. When not in use,...

  • Parts Needed to Install the EcoHitch Part # 306-X7267 on a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The only thing you will need to install the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7267 on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon is basic tools like sockets and wrenches. The rest of the parts needed for installation like the hardware, is included with the hitch. I do however recommend using the hitch cover part # 22281 while the hitch is not being used as this will prevent rust from forming inside the receiver tube opening.

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver with Standard Drawbar part # C11166 will fit an Audi A6 Avant Wagon from 1999-2004. As long as your Audi is within this year range then yes this hitch will work well for you. If you have a different year Audi A6 then please let me know what year that is and I would be glad to see if we have other options available for you.

    The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24966 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Toyota Prius Prime and will work well for you. The Draw-Tite Sportframe is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. In order to keep dirt and debris from getting inside the receiver tube opening, I recommend using the Rubber Hitch Cover part # 22281 while not in use.

  • What is the Diameter of the Crosstube on the Draw-Tite Hitch for a 2018 Dodge Journey
    The inner diameter of the crosstube on the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76225 is 1-1/2". Therefore, a trailer hitch cover designed for a 2" receiver tube opening like the Rubber Hitch Cover part # 22282 will not work for this application. With that being said I am certain you could find something to work for this application with just a bit of modifications. I have attached a sample install video for you as well.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And Cargo Carrier For 2016 Ford Focus
    For your 2016 Ford Focus, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class I - 1-1/4" # C11158. This trailer hitch receiver is rated for a 200 lb tongue weight and a 2000 lb towing weight. This is a very well-made hitch that will allow you to carry a bike rack or cargo carrier. Your owner's manual does not give weight restrictions and states you are never to tow with this vehicle, so you will be limited to accessories.

  • Will the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch # C11367 Fit my 2015 BMW 2 Series 228i Coupe
    Yes, the Curt Hitch Receiver # C11367 will fit your 2015 BMW 2 Series. If you are going to be using a bike rack, like the Thule Camber # TH9058, keep in mind that your max Tongue Weight is 200 lbs and that you will be limited to carrying only 2 bikes. If you will be using the hitch for anything but towing, Curt recommends using the Support Strap # 18050, otherwise your warranty from Curt will be voided.

    Yes, you will need to drill into the frame of your 2021 Kia Forte Sedan to install a trailer hitch. Out of the available options I recommend going with the Curt # C55HR because it has a hidden crosstube so the installation will look a lot more clean when installed. If you don't already have a bike rack then I recommend checking out the Kuat Sherpa # SH12B because this is a lightweight platform rack at 32 lbs and it is compatible with most adult bikes that don't have a front fender.

  • Should a Locking Hitch Pin be Purchased to Help Keep a Hitch Cover from Being Stolen
    A trailer hitch cover like the Rubber Hitch Cover # 22281 is not one that can be locked, but since it is a common piece it really isn't in too much danger of being stolen. However, if you you are looking at a hitch cover that is a little more unique, like the part # HTCC11805, then I do recommend going with a locking hitch pin like part # e98880 as opposed to a typical pin and clip like part # PC3. This will help to deter theft of your cover. Please note that the lock and clip/pin numbers...
