Review of the Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy hitch reducer and extender, two and a half inch to two inch trailer hitch, part number HR26. With this product not only do you get a reducer, but you also get an extender. It's perfect for situations such as this where we can't drop our tailgate down all the way because our jack is getting in the way. Now with it installed as you can see, zero problems. This can also work out great if you need a little more clearance for your bike racks or cargo carriers. It's made out of a sturdy steel construction with a black powder coat finish, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion.

It's going to allow you to adapt your two and a half inch by two and a half inch receiver to your two inch by two inch accessories, while giving you an extension of six inches pin hole to pin hole. It's going to have a maximum gross trailer weight of 5,000 pounds and have a maximum gross trailer weight when used with a weight distribution of 10,000 pounds. It's going to have a maximum tongue weight of 500 pounds, and a maximum tongue weight when used with a weight distribution of 1,000 pounds. Brophy does know that when using this product it's going to reduce your hitch capacity by one-third, so keep that in mind when towing. To get this installed you're going to need two hitch bending clips. What we'll do is we'll line up our first holes. Make sure that the end with the collar is obviously going to be sticking out this way.

Take our first pin and clip, slide that through. Then we can take our accessory for our bowl mount as you see here, slide it in, line up our second set of hitch pin holes. Then take our second hitch pin clip and put that in place. If you need pins and clips, they're available on our website at part number PC3. That's going to complete our look at the Brophy hitch reducer and extender, two and a half inch to two inch trailer hitch, part number HR26..
