Review of Reese Pintle Hitch RP45294

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Titan forged pintle hook mounting plate. This unit installs in a 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver and provides the mounting point for mounting a pintle hook. It secures in the hitch with a 5/8 inch diameter hitch pin and clip or hitch lock. Those items are sold separately and available at The faceplate right here is a three position mount, meaning it offers three positions for your pintle hook: position one, position two, and position three. The unit is made from a durable steel construction and features a black powder coated finish to resist rust and corrosion.

The gross trailer weight capacity for this unit is 18000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight capacity is 2000 pounds. You can use it in the drop position or you can flip it over and use it in the rise position.The shank length on the unit, what we did to get that is we took a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the front of the mounting plate, and that measures 8 1/2 inches. The mounting plate itself, going edge to edge this direction, measures five inches. And then measuring the overall height, edge to edge this direction, is 7 1/4 inches.

Now, the mount holes, going up and down, these are separated on center by 1 3/4 inches, so from the center of this one to the center of this one is 1 3/4, from this one to this one is 1 3/4, and so on. And then the hole separation side to side, that gives us a measurement of 3 3/8 inches. Now, please note, this uses an I beam style shank, and this will not fit the Ford Super Duty or 2015 Ram HD factory installed trailer hitches.That's gonna do it for today's look at the Titan forged pintle hook mounting plate.
