How to Close the Jaws on a Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch When Not In Use


Curt Q20 After I unhook my 5th wheel, how can I close the jaws so I can lock the hitch?


Expert Reply:

You can close the jaws on the Curt Q20 5th wheel hitch # C16130 so you can secure it with a lock.

Grab a tool from your garage such as a heavy duty wrench, hammer or even a 10-12 inch pipe or something that you can grip from the top and will have a bottom width base area of an inch or two. Once the jaws are free of any objects, especially your hands, take a tool and act as if you are hooking up your 5th wheel trailer and proceed toward the jaws. Once you go far enough, the jaws will close shut.

See the picture I included showing you how it will look.
