Review of Brophy Hitch Accessories HE06


Today were going to take a look at the Brophy hitch extender for two inch trailer hitches, number HE06. This extender can be used for your two inch trailer hitch to help you prevent trailer to tow vehicle contact while making sharp turns while towing. It has a powder coated black finish that will resist rust and corrosion. Again, its designed for two inch trailer hitches. Well take a look at some measurements here. From the center of the pin hole here to the center pin hole here is seven and three-eighths inches.

The length overall is 11 5/8 inches. From the end of the shank that slides into the hitch on the vehicle to the center of the first pin hole is two and a half inches, and from the center of this pin hole to the two inch opening for the accessory is two and one-eighths of an inch. It has a weight capacity load rating gross towing weight of 3500 pounds and a tongue weight of 350 pounds. If your using weight distribution equipment it has a gross towing weight of 7000 pounds and a tongue weight of 700 pounds. Please note that whenever you use a hitch extender the rule of thumb is youre going to reduce your hitchs overall capacity by 50%.

For example, if your hitch has a capacity of 3000 pounds, using this extender is going to lower that to 1500 pounds. Were going to bring out our two inch receiver to show you how to work this item. Youre going to take the smaller end here, youre going to slide that right in, line up your holes there. Then you will take your five-eighths inch pin and clip, that you should already have. If you dont we do sell that separately, number PC3.

Just slide that in here, and then you will clip that off and youre good to go. Then you will slide in your ball mount, your trailer on this end, and youre ready to start towing. That should do it for the Brophy hitch extender for two inch trailer hitch receivers, number HE06.
