Why Cant Gen-Y Glyder Shock Absorbing Ball Mount for 2 Hitches # 325-GH-12001 Flip Upside Down


Is there a way to get a 1 or 2 inch rise with the Gen-Y Glyder 2-in 3.5-in rise hitch? It seems this should be possible by simply inverting the whole hitch assembly not just the ball platform but will it support the load this way?


Expert Reply:

To switch between the rise and drop position of the Gen-Y Glyder Shock Absorbing Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # 325-GH-12001 requires removing the ball platform, flipping it, and then reinstalling it to the bracket. The main shank assembly can't flip as it is angled up slightly due to it's spring setup. It would not function properly with the spring assembly inverted.

With just the platform inverted using the lower set of mounting bolts on the shank you'd get the lower 1-2 inch rise you are wanting.
