Review of the etrailer 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve


So you have a 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver, but you have some two inch accessories you'd like to use like a bike rack or even maybe just a ball mount. Well, etrailer's got you covered, we designed a sleeve that is gonna help us convert it over from 2 1/2 to two inches, so you can use your favorite accessories. To make sure this is gonna work with your vehicle and your accessory, here are some measurements. Overall, the length is 5 1/2 inches, but then, on the longer side, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the receiver side right here, is gonna be three inches, then on the other side, from the center to the end, which is the accessory side, is gonna be 2 1/2 inches. I have noticed that it's a little bit easier to get everything all lined up if we just line it up on our accessory and then put these both in together. You just put it in just like any other accessory, but with a little bit more gentleness just to make sure that those holes continue to line up.

So we don't wanna be sticking our fingers through there. One thing I did notice though, if you do have an anti-rattle bolt like this and it's for the two inch hit receiver, it's not really gonna stick out far enough for us to put a pin on there, so that is something to kinda think about, and if you have this kind of bolt, a 5/8 inch diameter pin is gonna be a little too thick, so you might wanna go ahead and grab an extra long bolt or pin on our website, it doesn't come with it, but that's something you might run into. There are two different ways where we can reduce our hitch size, there's gonna be the sleeve that we're looking at right now, but then there's also this one, this is gonna reduce it from 2 1/2 to two, but you notice how we have two holes right here, one's gonna be to secure to our hitch, the other's gonna be for our accessory. This extension will cut your capacity of your hitch in half, but when you're just using the sleeve, everything stays the same. Whether it's a ball mount or a bike rack like you see right here, this sleeve is gonna allow us to use those two inch accessories on our 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver.

And that's pretty much it for a look at the etrailer adapter sleeve..
