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

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

Great overall product. Only thing that the website does not tell you is that this is not compatible with any anti-rattle lock due to the bottom being solid construction.92723
