How To Prevent Bike Rack From Scraping Ground On My 2015 Nissan Murano


I have a 2015 Nissan Murano and the bike rack attached to the 2inch hitch receiver hits the sidewalk of my driveway getting in and out. Will this roller prevent the scraping? Also, how would I attach this with the bike rack in the hitch? Do I place the bike rack in receiver first and put this roller over it with same pin holding the bike rack and roller?


Expert Reply:

The roller will not work with the bike rack with scraping the ground. You will need to use The Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210. This will raise up the trailer hitch receiver to help it from scraping the ground. The ball mount will scrape but not the bike rack itself.

Using this ball mount will cut your tongue weight in half though so for example if your tongue weight was 350 pounds using this adapter will cut it 175 pounds.

The ball mount has a sturdy steel and has a black powder coat for corrosion resistance.

I attached a review video link below.
