Review of Tork Lift Hitch Accessories TLE1536


Speaker: Today were going to review Part No. TLE1536. This is the Tork Life Super Truss Hitch Extension for the Super Hitch Trailer Hitch Receivers This part number is the 36 inch long version. This video review is going to be on the extension and its hardware. This part does not include the Super Hitch Receiver shown here. We just use that to attach the extension to it.

We do sell the Super Hitch Receiver separately. This extension will allow you to extend the top Receiver on your Tork Lift Super Hitch Dual Receiver Hitch to clear any obstacles such is like a bed mounted camper. It is a heavy duty design. The way it installs with the chains on the side will let you maintain a high towing capacity and allows you to use a standard weight distribution system. Basically this extension, you can see, when its put together correctly, the extension would slide into the top tube of your hitch; has a bottom compression tube which would slide into the bottom receive r hitch. Both of them has the hitch pin clips installed in it.

Has the collars on it that you would actually; theyre not made to slide. You would tighten these down and tighten it up here and that would help support the two tubes together. As the turn buckles the chains on the side that are attached to the hitch to give support. Its a patented lateral support safety chain that will provide extra security and it helps distribute the weight back from the receiver opening to the frame mounted hitch itself. The reason they go through all this is cause lots of times if you have a camper that might overhang the end of your truck bed and has a hard time getting to your receiver openings and you might want to be able to tow something or need to tow something. If you just get a basic extension which is one tube that slides in when you use one of those, it cuts your hitch capacity down 50%.

With this super truss hitch which installs on the super hitch hitches, this one once you install it, hook it up properly, use the safety chains and everything, it will maintain that high weight capacity. This part also comes with the electrical bracket that will let you mount the seven-way closer to your hitch extension opening. In other words if youre seven ways back here, put the extension on, you dont want to have to reach up under there to plug in your electrical. You can use this bracket; has holes drilled right here. You can mount it underneath on top. We do recommend when you do move this bracket to here for your seven way.

We do sell, as a related product, this Tork Lift Wiring Harness Extension, right here. This is Part No. TLW6036. Its designed for this 36 inch extension. It measures about 42 inches long. What you can do the is you have this end that will plug into the seven-way at your hitch. You can run this out to that bracket, that youve installed here and mount this into the bracket. This would give you your seven-way plug right out next to your extension opening. We do sell this as a related product. This part is made of a sturdy steel construction. Has a nice black powder coat finish to help resist corrosion. On the plate here, if youll notice the loops right here, these are built in hook-up loops for your trailer safety chains to hook to. Comes with all the mounting brackets. All the hardware that you see here is included. The hitch pin and clip are a hitch lock is sold separately. It does not come with the extension. You would have to get that separately. This part is made in the USA. Another little feature just to mention; its used on their Tork Life Super Hitches a lot, right around the hitch pinholes. They harden the area ad reinforce it. They do the same on their extensions, right out here where the hitch pinhole is, on both sides. They build it up and reinforce that area and then harden it. They reason they do that is it helps from that hitch pin hole elongating. In other words when you go to tow something, you put the shank in here and hold it in with the hitch pin, when youre towing something in the back and forth movement, its making that hitch pin go back and forth, that will sometimes will elongate your hitch pinhole. Thats why the harden and reinforce that so it eliminates that elongating of your hitch pinhole. The application for this extension as it is designed to fit the Tork Life Super Hitch original or the magnum Dual Receiver Trailer Hitches. The length on this part number is 36 inches. The receiver opening is 2 inches. The maximum gross trailer weight capacity using this extension is 6500 pounds. Maximum tongue weight would be 650 pounds. If you do use this width weight distribution it would raise that maximum gross trailer weight capacity to 12,000 pounds and the maximum tongue weight capacity to 1,200 pounds. This part does come with the lifetime warranty. How you would do it is you would slide both tubes into the dual receivers, use the hitch pin and clip to keep them in there. Use these two collars. Slide this one back as far as you can. Tighten it down. This one up as far as you can, tighten it down. Your chains would be hooked to your hitch brackets and to the plate here. Then what you would do is you would loosen these nuts and then turn your turn buckle to tighten it up. When you get it to where its tight you just turn these nuts down to hold it into place. You do the same over here. Once youve installed it that way, then youll maintain they high weight capacity of the extension and the hitch. That should do for the review of Part No. TLE1536, the Tork Lift Super Truss Hitch Extension for the Super Hitch Trailer Hitch Receivers. .
