Add versatility to your cargo carrier by using the folding adapter. This allows your cargo carrier to fold up and out of the way. With the adapter you will also increase the ground clearance between the carrier's platform and the ground to eliminate bottoming out.

Features:
  • Allows you to fold the cargo carrier platform up, towards the vehicle when the platform is empty
    • Great for saving space for parking in garages or on the street
  • Extends the carrier away from the vehicle
    • Provides better access to the rear of the vehicle
  • Raises cargo carrier platform height
    • Can make loading/unloading easier
    • Improves ground clearance
Specs:
  • Slides into 2" x 2" trailer hitches
  • Extends the cargo carrier out 12-1/4" from the center of the hitch pin hole
  • Raises the cargo carrier platform 2-1/2" from the top of the hitch opening
  • Works with the following 2" hitch mounted carriers:
    • Surco Railed Cargo Carrier # 52018
      • Measures 5" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the carrier railing when folded up

Folding Cargo Carrier Adapter for 2 Inch Trailer Hitches Review

Video Transcript for Folding Cargo Carrier Adapter for 2 Inch Trailer Hitches Review

Today we are going to show you part number 52015, this is a folding basket adapter for two inch trailer hitch mounted cargo carriers. Specifically this will fit cargo carrier model 52018. As you can see we have the parts laid out here, we will install them on a cargo carrier and show you how it goes. But we will just cover the main points of it. Basically you see this bushing right here, what is going to happen is it is going to actually fit inside the tube of the cargo carrier itself, inside like this, so you will not see it. What happens is, as a bushing it reduces it down for this bolt, so when it sits inside down here, it eliminates all the slop. This pin here is just for when you fold it up or have it down, it is just a pin that keeps it in place, that is all it does. It has two positions: one for up and one for down position. We have a cargo carrier here, we will go ahead and install the adapter bar here, pretty simple. Again you want to put your bushing in first, and that stays there and then you slide your adapter bar over. Then you install the bolt and the washer on each side.

We are just going to leave that loose for now. Then we will put our safety pin in, and then we will go ahead and tighten down this nut and bolt, and we will be set. When you tighten these down, you want to take care, you just want to get the slack out. You do not want to torque it down too tight where you cannot rotate it. We have it installed in our upright position. Like I said, it is really nice to install into your hitch, and if you are going to pick something up you can leave it up as you go down the road. When you are ready to pick up the item you are going to transport, go ahead and pull the pin, lower it, then re-install your pin and your cargo carrier is ready for service. That pretty much sums it up for the folding basket adapter for 2 inch trailer hitch mounted cargo carrier part # 52015 from Surco

Enclosed are photos of your Folding Adapter for 2" hitch, which served as the basis for my bicycle carrier. I designed the carrier and a local welding shop assembled the framework. The part was exactly what I was looking for and I am very happy with the result. Thanks! 19399

I was looking for a product that would allow me to leave my hitch haul on my truck and not block the sidewalk so people could walk and not block the walkway. I found this on etrailer website and ordered it.They shipped it to me faster than I had asked for it to arrive. The product is very well made and very strong and will last a long time. It's a pleasure to have such good products to buy and I will order products in the future from this company. Thank You Ray Miller 103916

Extremely fast shipping and well-boxed. Product is very well fabricated with good welds and holes throughout. Used it on the Harbor Freight #69687 basket carrier and it fit perfectly. Forget the cheap models; this one is well worth the comparatively few extra bucks.121140

Bought this for my trip to Fl used on 2005 honda pilot worked great. i put it on a harbour freight cargo carrier and fit with no problem, i like the convience of folding it up while on vacation, if i needed to get in the back just pulled one pin and loaded are stuff and folded it back up. 75002

The product shipped out the same day ordered and I received in a timely manner. I was able to track the product along the way. I found the adapter by accident on the etrailer site and glad I did. I plan to attach my current 15yr old Hitch Haul basket carrier to it and give me the flexibility to fold it up on the vehicle when not in use.18223

Product was exactly as described and quickly shipped to my home. Very pleased. Will check with this company before buying items such as this receiver. I already had a cargo carrier and an extension. Used the cargo carrier on my Nissan Pathfinder for trips. Carry bikes, coolers, chairs, etc. The only problem was taking it off when we got there so it wasn't in the way of parking and other trips. With this receiver I can simply fold the cargo carrier up and out of the way. It easily folds down if I need access to the rear cargo area of the pathfinder. My wife like it too because she doesn't like driving with it down with nothing on it.11083

Excellent Addition I had only purchased the cargo carrier that this unit attaches to because I was afraid that the folding attachment would have the carrier folding into the back of our vehicle, a Honda Element. After realizing that I would rather fool with the potential trouble than to not have a folding carrier at all, I decided to give this thing a shot. It is PERFECT! I couldn't be more pleased. The carrier does stick out a bit farther, but that allows us to actually let down the tailgate and let our dog out the back of the vehicle. This is an excellent addition to the very well made cargo carrier. I would spend the money and buy these two items again and again. Also, etrailer.com is one of the best companies I have ever dealt with. Fast shipping, good communication and excellent customer service. I'm a repeat etrailer.com customer for a reason.3809

over all this product sucks. there is way to much wiggle room which causes cargo carrier to bounce a lot and lean. Between the weight of the cargo carrier and the weight of the electric wheel chair I do not trust the single bolt to hold77967

  • The Surco Folding Basket Adapter # 52015 is designed to work with the Surco Hitch Cargo Carrier # 52018. I do not have a Pro Series Cargo Carrier # PS1040000 in stock, so I cannot check if the adapter will fit that cargo carrier. I did go out to the warehouse and pull the adapter # 52015 and made some measurements that might be able to help you determine if it will fit your cargo carrier.
