Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Accessories HT02 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Brophy hitch reducer for a two inch to a one and a quarter inch, number HT02. This adapter allows you to use your current hitch accessories on either a two inch hitch or, thanks to this device, a one and a quarter inch receiver hitch. It will easily convert your two inch receiver to a one and a quarter inch receiver. It has a maximum tongue weight of 300 pounds. It has a towing capacity of 3000 pounds, or the lowest rated towing component which means if your hitch or your vehicle has a towing capacity of less than 3000 pounds you need to go with that one to ensure that you're towing safely. The sleeve design does not reduce tongue weight capacity, as an extender would.

It measures three inches from center to pin hole to center to pin hole. Overall it is seven inches long by about two inches tall. It comes with a powder coated black finish. It conveniently comes with a half-inch pin and clip to hold the one and a quarter inch accessories into place. You will use the five-eighths inch pin and clip that should have come with your hitch to attach this to the hitch.

If it did not come with a five-eighths inch hitch pin and clip we do sell those separately, number PC3. Let's bring this in and show you how this is done with our two inch hitch right here. You will take the larger of the two holes, insert that right in here, lining up the holes. Using your five-eighths inch pin and clip slide that through, clip that off and now you're ready to use your one and a quarter inch hitch accessories, say bike rack, cargo carrier, ball mount whatever it is you need to use. You'll slide that right in here, you'll line up the holes and then you just pop that through and clip that off.

There you have it. That was our Brophy hitch reducer two inch to one and a quarter inch, number HT02.

This product worked like a charm. I was trying to find a product to mount my Bell bike rack on a 2" Hitch and reduce it to 1 1/4". My bike rack was quite unstable with the plastic reducer Bell had provided. With this product, my bike rack fits well with no rattle and I drove a long distance carrying 4 bikes during father's day without any problems.44586

There is a fair amount of play between this adapter and a 2" receiver so any attachments used (bike rack or cargo rack) will rock back and forth more than expected. I used small pieces of aluminum to shim between the adapter and the receiver the minimize the movement.10858

I can't say enough good things about the C.S. Brophy company and how they stand behind their products. I bought one of these adapters from etrailer and used it for months but it didn't fit right. I finally discovered the 5/8" hole on one side was off center. etrailer directed me to call Brophy, and Brophy replaced the item as quickly as could be expected, paid for the return shipping, and followed up to make sure the replacement worked correctly. The replacement is a well made piece of hardware that should last many years. I will look first for Brophy products whenever I'm shopping for trailer hardware.107151

I am very pleased with my experience with etrailer. I was searching the web for a hitch reducer and I happened on your site. You had a video of the hitch reducer that I was interested in so I got a very good idea of what I was buying. The product arrived exactly as in your video. Now I'll be able to use my hitch for my bike rack. Thank you very much. I wish all my interrnet purchasing experiences were as good as what I experienced with your company!101669

Bought this hitch reducer for my chevy Traverse to use my 1 1/4" Thule bike rack. Fits the car fine. The spare tire is immediately behind and inline with the trailer hitch. This does not extend beyond the 2" hitch toward the spare tire. My Thule bike rack now fits nicely into the trailer hitch. I use a regular pin to hold the reducer in the hitch. With the bikes attached the reducer "moves" inside the 2" hitch about a 1/16th of an inch. this translates to a full inch or 2 of movement of the bikes back and forth. The Thule 1 1/4" hitch bar has a threaded bolt to secure it to the Hitch/reducer. In a smaller hitch there is no play and the bouncing of the bikes. with the reducer it now takes some getting used to. I am contemplating a steel shim but I would need to make sure it cannot fall out during travel . . . 86951

I'm very impressed with the ordering process and the quickness of delivery. The product is very well made. I also thought it was great that there was a video demonstrating the product. Made it very easy for me to see that this is the EXACT product to fit my needs. I will shop eTrailer.com for all my RV, auto, trailer, bike needs. I think my local RV dealer will be using you as well. You have great pricing. Thank you!!86048

Very satisfied, easy ordering online with fast delivery. This adapter installs in a few seconds with no tools required. It is a little lose fitting but can be removed just as easily as installing. Wish it came with a 5/8 pin as i already have the smaller one. 85357

It does exactly what it was advertised to do- adapt my current 4" hitch so I could attach my bike rack. There's some wiggle room, (literally) but I knew that before I bought it. The bike rack actually fits more snugly than it did in an old vehicle I once had with a hitch.73746

Great product and the customer service is impeccable. I've ordered the trailer hitch from them 1 1/2 weeks after I ordered a grill guard from another online store and my trailer hitch came in faster. It's amazing. I decided to order the adapter from them again and had a couple of questions before I place the order, customer service rep was really courteous and knowledgeable. I received my adapter in 3 days. Amazing store!33575

The adapter slid right in to the factory hitch on our 2012 Volvo XC60. This is a big deal since we had to return a different brand of adapter because the corner radii did not match up and it would not go in. There's a little bit of play, but the locking/snugging kit we also got will take care of that. Great solution for my 1 1/4" tongue bike rack!33221
