Review of the etrailer 14 inch Long Trailer Hitch Extender


There are a lot of different reasons why we need to extend our hitch receiver. Whether you're just trying to be able to fold up your cargo carrier, maybe your bike rack won't even fit inside there with a spare tire or whatever the reason is. But also just for your towing, a lot of the times you run into issues like we have right here where this is pretty much unusable. And then even with our other one, it's also unusable. So here at etrailer, we went through and addressed those problems. And we have a whole line of different extenders.

Some four inch and a quarters, some for two inch and some adapters as well. So, regardless of what kind of hitch you may have and what vehicle you have, we got you covered with our line of extenders and adapters. This one right here is the second largest for your two inch hitch receiver. A couple of useful measurements: This is going to extend about 13 and 13/16 of an inch from the center to the center here. From the center of this hitch pin hole, it goes in your hitch receiver.

To the edge is gonna be three inches. And then up here from the center of the hitch pin hole to the front face is going to be 2 5/8 of an inch. The diameter of the hitch pin hole is gonna be 5/8 of an inch. And this does not come with the kit. So you will have to grab one separately if you don't already have one.

It's just like any other accessory. Just gonna put it in and then put our hitch pin hole in. Once that's done, you're ready to load up whatever other kind of hitch accessory you want to. One thing that does not come with the kit which I suggest doing is we do want to prevent all that rattle. So we do have a anti-rattle device that we designed for these specific types of extenders or accessories.

Meaning if we do have a, if we do have a solid shank like we do on our extender, we're not gonna be able to have a threaded hitch pin, nor are we gonna be able to insert something on the inside of the hitch of the accessory, just because it's solid. So with this, all you gotta do is put it on like that. And we're gonna take a three quarter inch socket to tighten this down and we wanna tighten it down as evenly as possible. And once you have that tightened down, it's completely solid. So we're not gonna hear that rattling whenever we're going down the road, if the windows are down, but also our accessories aren't gonna be rattling around either. The hitch extender is gonna have a 350 pound tongue weight and a 3,500 pound gross trailer weight. But that is just for the extender. With any extender, whether it's etrailer's extender or any of the other ones on our site, you are gonna cut your hitches capacity in half. So look at the ratings that you have on your hitch, cut those in half. And we do wanna make sure that we're not going to exceed those ratings because something will eventually break. We wanna make sure everybody's safe on the road. So just know that fun facts about any type of hitch extender. And that's pretty much it. We listened to you and you had these problems with your hitches and we solved them. So all you really need to do is grab the right length and the right size to solve your problem. And that's pretty much it for a look at the line of etrailer hitch extenders..
