Review of Tork Lift Hitch Accessories TLE1521


Today we are going to review part number TLE1521, this is the Torklift SuperTruss hitch extension for the Super Hitch Trailer hitch receivers. This review is on the extension part, which is just the part that would insert into the trailer hitch. For demonstration purposes, I do have it installed into the Super Hitch receiver which is sold separately. This part number would just pertain to the extension and it's parts. This extension piece will extend you SuperHitch receiver opening and clear any obstacles, such as your bed mounted camper so that you can tow. The heavy duty design will let you maintain a high towing capacity and allows you to use a standard weight distribution system. This extension will slide into both receivers, it uses the top part and then it has a compression tube that it would be bolted to that slides into the bottom receiver and if you notice it has these turnbuckles and chains on the side for added support. This extension can only be used, it is designed specifically for the Torklift SuperHitch Original or Magnum Dual receiver trailer hitches.

It does use these patented lateral support safety chains to provide extra security and help to distribute the weight back from the extension receiver opening back to the frame mounted hitch. This one that I am talking about is a 21 inch extension. As you can see it measures 21 inches from the hitch opening. It also comes with this electrical bracket, that will let you mount your electrical connector closer to the extension opening. You will see the two holes on the plate here, you can mount it underneath, you can also mount it on top. When you do use the bracket to extend your wiring harness out, we do recommend to use the Torklift wiring extension, this is sold separately.

This is for the 21 inch extension and it is part number TLW6021. What this would do is, this then would plug into your 7-way that is already on your vehicle and run out to the mounting bracket that you would install out here, so this way you would have your 7-way closer to the hitch receiver on the extension. Also, if you'll notice on the extension, they do use the hardened reinforced hitch pin holes to prevent elongation wear. That the same feature they use on their hitches, right around where the hitch pin goes in they actually reinforce that area and then harden it and that will help from if the pin has any movement, keeps it from elongating that hole. This extension is made of a sturdy steel construction, does have a black powder coat finish to help resist corrosion. Right up here you can see, it has the built in loops, the hook-up loops for the trailer safety chains.

The mounting brackets and all the hardware is included. The hitch pin and clip or hitch lock, we do sell separately, it does not come with this extension. This part is made in the USA. Again the application is designed to fit just on the Torklift SuperHitch Original series or Magnum series. It gives you a two inch opening. Basically what you would do is, it has an extension at the top and underneath is a compression tube, then you have this collar that would actually go over the two and then you slide this to the front, tighten it down and it would hold those two together.

As you slide that in, you install it with thehitch pins and clips, then you would hook your chains to the holes that are already in the end plates of your SuperHitch and then hook them to the plate here and then you can adjust them when you loosen these nuts, you can adjust this turnbuckle and get it tightened up and then tighten the nuts down to hold it into place and that would give you that extra lateral support that's needed to maintain the higher weight capacities. The maximum gross trailer weight capacity on this hitch is 7,500 pounds. The maximum tongue weight capacity is 750 pounds. If you do use this extension with weight distribution, it will increase your gross trailer weight capacity to 14,000 pounds and increase your maximum tongue weight capacity to 1,400 pounds. This part does come with the lifetime warranty. That should do it for the review on part number TLE1521, the Torklift SuperTruss hitch extension for the SuperHitch trailer hitch receivers. .
