Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Accessories HT5R Review

Today we'll be taking a look at part number HT5R. This is the Brophy Hitch Adapter, converting an 1-1/4" hitch to a 2" trailer hitch receiver. It does provide a 5" rise. Our rise is measured from the top of the 1-1/4" shank to the inside top edge of the 2" by 2" receiver opening. This is going to help convert our 1-1/4" hitch or class 1 and 2 receiver to a 2" receiver. Just keep in mind it's not to be used for towing or with snow plows.

It also has a really nice powder coated black finish that's going to help withstand up against rust and corrosion. Our extension is 7", and that's measuring from the center of one pin hole to the center of the other. And this raises 5-1/2", and that's measured from the bottom of the 1-1/4" shank to the center of our hitch pin hole and the 2" by 2" opening. The 1-1/4" shank is a solid shank, and the 2" by 2" receiver tube is completely hollow. This is going to provide a maximum towing weight of 300 pounds, and it's made in the USA. You just want to keep in mind the capacity of your hitch will be reduced by 50% with use of an adapter. This part here, the 1-1/4" part, is going to be the section that slides into your hitch.

Line up your pin hole and install your 1/2" pin and clip. That's not included, but can be found on our website with part number PC2. And then to load your accessory, you would slide it into the 2" by 2" opening, line up your pin hole, and install your 5/8" pin and clip. That's also not included, and can be found on our website with part number PC3. Now to go over a few more measurements. We have an overall length of about 10-3/4", and to make sure that you have enough clearance between the rear of your vehicle and the back of this 2" by 2" receiver opening, I'm going to measure from the center of the pin hole to the back of this upright bar, and we have a measurement of 3-1/2".

The measurement from the center of the pin hole to the beginning of this weld is right at 2-1/4". The amount of space we have from the back of our 1-1/4"shank to the center of our pin hole is 1-1/2. That's going to complete today's review of part number HT5R. This is the Brophy Hitch Adapter, converting an 1-1/4" hitch to a 2" trailer hitch receiver. .

Thank you for the personal touch on the order. Not many company's do this. This is a good product and a good price. My car sits low and we needed to raise the carrier up. Looks like this will work out. 111921


Comments

The conversion piece is exactly what I needed. The hitch on my car is 1 1/2 " (even tho' the dealer promised me a 2" hitch). My carrier has a 2" opening. A standard converter left it too close to the ground when my mobility scooter was loaded. This piece was easy to install and a test run today proved it to be a very wise purchase. 199256

This well-made adapter is ideal for the 2016 Mazda Miata because it provides significant clearance for Curt Manufacturing's folding aluminum cargo carrier and remains 1 1/4" away from the rear license plate. I've already used this rig several times in several days (lawnmower, luggage, packages to be shipped) and it works great. Along with this fantastic product is fantastic service from the eTrailer.com team. Friendly, helpful, responsive. I couldn't ask for anything more, and recommend both this product and its distributor highly. 270350

The item was very well built and arrived quickly. The only complaint I have, is a problem I was expecting to have after reading another review, so I don't feel cheated, just a little disappointed: it doesn't really fit a 2013 Jetta Sportswagen with a U-haul branded hitch. It doesn't clear the bumper. The male part the goes into the receiver needs to be just about 1.75" longer (2.00" might be better) to clear the bumper. A suggestion would be to make the male appendage 2" longer and provide two holes so people can use either the shorter or longer extension, depending on how far out they need to go to clear the bumper. (I was able to make it work by chopping off a triangular part off the top part of the unit) 265022

I received my trailer hitch adapter today on time as promised. I tried it out on both cars ( 2009 hyundai elantra and 2013 hyundai sonota . It works well by clearing the bumpers and raising the hitch 4 or 5 inches that i was trying to accomplish. I use the hitch for a bike rack and it was too low to the ground.My hitch is a 1-1/4 that the HT5R converts to a 2 inch but my bike rack also had an adapter to 2 inch, so it works perfect. I had talked to customer service prior to buying and they steered me in the correct direction and i am pleased to solve this problem. 276549

Because of low ground clearance I bought this high 5" high rise for my carrier that I bought from you all and it worked great. I loved the ability to walk between the carrier and trunk. The high rise is easy to install. We had absolutely no issues on our 3000 mile round trip journey. The hitch, high rise and carrier were all purchased from you. 309669

Finally! I could not use the hitch on my Kia as it is too low to the ground. Which I did not realize until it was put on by U haul. I kept looking and looking for a hitch adapter with a rise and here it is. It needs to be an inch longer though (at the bottom) because of the bumper. But that is fixable. I'll have the garage shave a bit out of the bumper so I can get the holes lined up. They don't line up by just an 8th of an inch. Then I can use a carrier box without it scraping on the roads. 176002

Perfect for my 2015 honda fit It helped a lot by adding that 5 inch rise No more scraping on the driveways or dips. I highly recommend to anyone that owns or is planning to buy a cargo hitch basket those who own a smaller car. 154532

High quality construction and finish. Two minor issues: (1) the security-pin hole in the 1-1/4" end did not line up with the hole in the Draw-Tite hitch - too some "modification" to make that work; (2) the 2" receiver does not have a backing plat or "stop" in it, so you need to be very careful when sliding a hitch, bike rack, etc. in - so that you don't harm your vehicle. 182421

I'm very pleased with the overall results and I would highly recommend buying from etrailer.com. Their website is first class and the online order process was quick and easy to use.

Solid built. It did what I wanted. It enables me to put a cargo carrier on the back of a Toyota Corolla with ample ground clearance so I don't have to worry about dragging it on the ground when ascending or descending inclines. Will also be used for bike carrier on same vehicle. 246126

This item is not compatible with the bumper on newer models of Nissan Versas. The upright portion rubs the bumper and presses into the bumper when there is a load on. It may crack the bumper. It needs to extend about 1 inch further horizontally, to work with the Nissan bumpers. 105278

Package arrived as stated with no holes or damage. Installation went well per instructions I did have to watch video to find out how to install bolts in frame. There was no figrue 5 in instructions. Bolts in frame would not fit in frame hole ended up grinding flats on two sides. 96347

After I ground down the weld 1/4 inch it fit into the 1 1/4 inch hitch. Before grinding the holes did not line up by 1/4 inch. Because I had to work on it before it would work is the reason this did not receive an excellent rating. Love the 5 inch rise. 200799

I bought this to use with my 2" carrier, but I actually returned it. It was very heavy. I decided that using the adapter and the subsequent loss of 1/2 of the tongue weight wasn't effective. I chose instead to get a 1.25 carrier instead. 255725

by: Jim V09/22/2016


I was able to use this in my 2006 Honda CRV and it gave me the height I needed. Now my bike rack/front bike tire does not slam the pavement while entering and exiting driveways. Great alternative to buying a new bike rack! 297436

This adapter's 5-inches of rise will give you better clearance if you have a steep driveway entrance or if you just want the peace of mind of knowing you don't have to worry about the bike tires touching the ground.

When you combine that with the fact that the # HT5R specifically states that you shouldn't use it with any other hitch extenders I can not recommend you use this setup.

When using a hitch adapter, the weight capacity of your trailer hitch will be decreased by 50 percent. It is likely that the trailer hitch on your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta is a Class I hitch. So if your hitch has a 200 pound weight capacity, with the adapter on it can only carry 100 pounds. Since the Doubletrack weight approximately 46 pounds, this means the...

  • Hitch Adapter to Provide Rise for Better Thule Bike Rack Ground Clearance on 2015 Kia Sorento
  • Hitch adapters are available for the 1-1/4-inch hitch that is on your 2015 Kia Sorento. An adapter like the Brophy # HT5R fits into your hitch and provides a 2-inch (not a 1-1/4-inch) receiver opening that is 5-inches above the shank. This means additional ground clearance for your bike rack or other accessory, such as a cargo carrier like # C18145.

The type of item you're looking for, a hitch adapter that gives you a height increase for better ground clearance at your bike wheels, does exist for larger 2-inch hitches. Such an item is # MT70070, as an example. The problem is that an equivalent item is not made for your light-duty 1-1/4-inch hitch. The best option I can offer you is to use two adapters together (definitely not ideal, but...

  • Trailer Hitches and Towing Capacities for 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • Makers of trailer hitches design their products based on the capabilities of the cars they are intended to fit. In the case of the 2014 Toyota Corolla only light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches are made. This is simply because the Corolla's frame is not strong enough to support a hitch of higher capacity than this Class I type. You might care to review the linked articles on hitch sizes and classes. The linked page will show you all three choices in a Class I hitch for your Corolla. On...

  • Recommended Hitch Cargo Carrier for Better Ground Clearance on 2014 Hyundai Elantra
  • We do offer a hitch adapter that can be used with a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch like those made for your 2014 Hyundai Elantra to allow use of a 2-inch accessory item like a cargo carrier. Brophy's Hitch Adapter with 5-Inch Rise # HT5R will fit into your 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch and provide 5-inches of rise for the 2-inch receiver opening. If your cargo carrier can fit a 2-inch hitch you can use this adapter for better ground clearance. However, please note that as with all hitch...

  • Will Brophy Rising Hitch Adapter Clear Rear Bumper on 2013 Honda Accord
  • On adapter # HT5R it measures 3-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright that supports the 2 inch receiver. For Curt hitch # C11681 for the 2013 Honda Accord it should measure about 2-1/2 inches to clear the rear bumper so the adapter would work. However, the use of an adapter reduces the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent and it also puts additional stress on the hitch. That would mean instead of 200 pounds the tongue weight capacity...

  • Looking for an Adapter to Fit 1-1/4 Hitch With a Rise and 1-1/4 Inch Receiver
  • We do have adapters that will fit your 1-1/4 hitch on your vehicle, however, the receiving side is 2 inches, such as the Brophy Hitch Adapter with 5 Inch Rise # HT5R. The issue with using an adapter is that it cuts your tongue weight in half. What I believe you want is a 1-1/4 adapter for your vehicle hitch that has an unknown rise that extends out and will hold your cargo that also has 1-1/4 inch receiver. If you happen to be looking for a cargo carrier with a rise, check out Curt...

  • Will Brophy Rise Adapter part # HT5R Fit Curt Hitch Installed on 2010 Honda Accord
  • You would just barely have the clearance to install the Hitch Adapter, but it will fit. I checked the dimensions the Curt hitch # C11085 had when installed on a 2010 Honda Accord like yours with the dimensions of the adapter and there is room. The tongue weight rating of your hitch after the adapter is installed will be 100 lbs since the adapter would reduce it down to that. That means that as long as your bike rack weighs less than 40 lbs you would be within capacity. Curt requires...

  • Adding Height to a Bike Rack for Better Ground Clearance
  • I have a solution that will allow you to raise the height of the whole bike rack for better ground clearance when you have bikes loaded. If your trailer hitch has a 1-1/4 inch receiver you can use adapter # HT5R. If it has a 2 inch receiver you can use # MT70070. However, the use of either adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. So if the tongue weight capacity of the hitch started at 200 pounds the use of adapter # HT5R would reduce that down...

  • Compatibility of Brophy HT5R Hitch Adapter with 2-Inch Bike Carrier on 2016 Mazda CX-3
  • Hitch adapters can sometimes be handy for a quick-fix, but since your 2016 Mazda CX-3 can only accept a light-duty 1-1/4-inch hitch I really cannot recommend using any type of hitch adapter. Here's why. Any type of adapter, such as the Brophy # HT5R, will cost you half of your hitch's rated capacity. So a 200-lb-rated Class I hitch like my recommended Draw-Tite # 24933 will have only a 100-lb capacity if used with the Brophy adapter. The reason for this loss of hitch capacity is that...

  • 2 inch Hitch Adapter Availability for 2007 Toyota Prius for Using a Bike Rack
  • All the hitches that we have that are for a 2007 Toyota Prius are Class I hitches and have a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. Due to the attachment points on the vehicle and the weight rating of a Class I hitch it is limited to carrying 2 bikes. Some manufacturers have have installed stops in the hitches to make them specifically exclusive to using Class I rated hitch accessories, including bike racks. I have included a helpful article that explains this further. A hitch adapter might be...

  • Hitch Needed for 2015 Honda Accord to Carry Bike Rack with 2" Shank
  • The hitch receivers available for your 2015 Honda Accord are all Class I with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening like the Custom Fit Curt Hitch, # C11681. Curt does require the use of Support Straps, # 18050, for all non-trailer loads including bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. In order to mount a bike rack designed for use with a 2 inch hitch in the Class I hitch, you could use a hitch adapter like the...

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch for 2009 Honda Accord to Allow Use of 2-inch Hitch Bike Rack
  • The size and class of hitch available for your 2009 Honda Accord is a 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch such as Curt # C11085 and Draw-Tite # 24899. No 2-inch hitches are made for your car because its frame is not strong enough for the weight ratings of a 2-inch Class III hitch. As you noted, there are adapters like the Brophy # HTAD and # HT5R that fit your 1-1/4-inch hitch and provide a 2-inch receiver opening for the 2-inch accessory. These are both about 7-inches long, a good bit shorter...

  • Class I Hitch Cargo Carrier with Good Ground Clearance on 2011 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen
  • Please take a look at Curt Class I carrier # C18110. This carrier has 3-3/4-inches of rise in the shank and it provides 6-3/4-inches of clearance from your hitch pin hole. This will fit your hitch without an adapter. The cost for this carrier is about the same as what you would have to spend on multiple adapters and it is a far safer solution that will not cost you a loss of hitch capacity. Having something fabricated would definitely cost you more and I do not recommend this because that...

  • Trailer hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Audi A4 Avant Wagon
  • I do not recommend the use of a hitch adapter because doing so will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. For example Curt trailer hitch # C11180 is rated for 200 pounds tongue weight. The use of an adapter will reduce the capacity to 100 pounds. So the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes cannot exceed 100 pounds. The adapter will also increase the amount of stress on the hitch and attachment points on the vehicle. The only adapter with a rise that we have...

Using an adapter like # HT5R will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent.

  • Recommended Hitch Adapter with Rise To Clear Rear Bumper
  • Sounds like the distance from your hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper is 5 or more inches. The 1-1/4" to 2" adapters with a rise such as # MT70355 and # HT5R, which you reference, would end up making contact with the bumper. I recommend going with a straight adapter, like # HTAD, which measures 7-1/4" from pin hole to pin hole. This adapter is not to be used for towing and will fit only Class II hitches. I have included links to a helpful article on How to Choose a Bike Rack...

  • Trailer Hitch Adapter with Rise and 2 Inch Receiver for a 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • There is something similar to MaxxTow adapter # MT70070 that fits 1-1/4 inch hitches instead of 2 inch hitches. Take as look at the Brophy adapter, # HT5R. It fits a 1-1/4 inch Class I or II hitch and has a rise with a 2 inch receiver on the top. An adapter that features 2 receivers though is not available for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. Please note the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. It will also put more stress on the hitch and vehicle.
