Video Transcript for MaxxTow Magnetic Telescoping Trailer Hitch Aligner Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number MT70043. These are the MaxxTow Magnetic, Telescoping Trailer Hitch Aligners. Line your trailer up with your tow vehicle quickly and easily with this alignment kit. All you have to do is attach one magnetic rod to your trailer's coupler, and attach the other to your truck's ball mount, and then line up the balls in your rear-view mirror. You can see that, without the hitch aligners on, this is definitely a two-person job. I have my friend back here guiding and directing me, making sure that my hitch ball is going to line up with the coupler on my trailer. Now we have our hitch aligners in place, and we're simply going to back up. Make sure that we have them lined up with one another. As you can see, the way that we have them installed today is as soon as we had our ball underneath our coupler 00:00:53, one of the hitch aligners fell off, allowing us to know that our hitch ball was directly under our coupler.

Now we're ready to make our connection. Another possibility is just to mount it to the actual ball mount, and it's still going to have the same effect. You'll just need to get out and check as to when the ball is underneath the coupler. When installing these, you want to make sure that your hitch ball on your vehicle is going to be set lower than the coupler height on your trailer. You can use the aligners to do that. First I'm going to take this down until it's about level with the ball mount. Then we can take this to our trailer and make sure that the coupler sits over top of this height.

You can see here. It looks like that's going to be the perfect fit. These aligners have a telescoping feature. That way you can adjust the height. You can see there: nice, easy, fluid motion. With it in the fully retracted position, it's going to give us a measurement of 13 1/2" to the top of the ball.

In the fully extended position, it's going to give us a measurement of 33 and one half to the top of the ball. Here on the bottom of the aligner, it's going to feature a magnetic base. That way you can quickly and easily attach one to your coupler and the other one to your ball mount or hitch ball. The aligners are going to be made from a nice, steel construction. We already have one of the aligners installed on our coupler. Now we're ready to install the other one on our truck. We're going to go ahead and place that magnetic base directly on our hitch ball.

Once we have that set, we can adjust the telescoping height and then we're ready to make the connection. That's going to complete today's review of part number MT70043. That's the MaxxTow Magnetic, Telescoping Trailer Hitch Aligner.

I have used this product with some dissatisfaction. My vehicle rear cargo door blocks the ball on the receiver. So I line up the door joints where they come together and it works. I am unable to use both yellow balls. However the magnets came off both yellow balls, the joint where the telescoping member meets the magnet base was not the best. The rivet was not all the way compressed, so the chrome tube came apart. Overall the product worked with just one ball on the coupler. 100069


Comments

Patrick,I had to super glue the chrome shaft to the magnet, now it works fine. I wish the mfg would have used a better way to attach magnet to the shaft.Gary

Works great with our horse trailer and boat trailer. Just line up the balls and back in until the touch. Get out of the truck and hook up the trailer! I keep a pair under the seat in the truck so they are always ready to go. 163440

Works great! A lot less expensive than a rear camera!

I sent you guys an email about the Hitch Aligners. They were pieces of junk from china. They had a rivet that held them to the base that went up inside the tube about an 1/8". Tube came off the base first thing. I drilled and tapered the base and put a nice long heavy duty screw in, now they will work just fine. I'm sure you guys can make something a lot better. I would not sell those things to anyone, if I were you guys, you need to take a look at them for yourself, cause your hitches a great and these things could give you a bad name. 94639

Don't know enough about the products yet to review but love the site. I was told by my local RV center that I could not get trailer mirrors for my Chevy Van. Apparently I'm the only one who pulls a trailer with a van. But Etrailer had mirrors and cheaper than similar mirrors at the RV dealer. Also found matching trailer lights to what I have after striking out at three local auto parts stores. Told an excavator buddy about you. He has several trailers that are constantly being abused. Great site and am proud you too are in Missouri! 222200

Etrailer is the best place to buy any trailer accessory's you need. They provide videos for many of the products they sell. They ship extremely fast. Their communication is second to none. Items are very well priced, And they pack your order with great care to protect it from damage. I cannot say enough about etrailer.com. They deserve my time to write this review because the buying experience I have had from them is second to none. Etrailer you need to know if you have what i need I will look no further. Thank you 118588

Standard cheap Chinese stuff, but I knew that when I bought it. Very stiff to expand and collapse. Tried lubricating it, but it's still tight. I'll bend it if I'm not careful. Height is just enough to get about 2-3" above the Wrangler's spare tire and tail light. Package cleanly snaps open so you can put it back in the package and use the package to hang it on a hook. Haven't tried it yet, but should work OK. 115770

Backing my old pickup into position to hitch up a utility trailer or the camper was always a two person job or one that resulted in getting in and out of the truck multiple times to check alignment and distance. Now, I put the hitch aligners in place and usually back into position on the first try, without the wife's help :-) 288213

Received the products before expected. Installed the tail light units on my rv, worked as expected. Haven't used the hitch aligner yet, but all the items arrived in new condition. Persons taking the orders know their products. Any thing else I need, I know where to check first. 171380

This is a wonderful product that is a tremendous help in assisting you in connecting up to any trailer when you are trying to do it by yourself. The only thing that would make it better is a hard protective storage case for them. They are easily bent which renders them useless. 275896

Works - one is shorter then the other and not marked so I always seem to get the short one in the wrong place and have to switch but does help to get lined up close. 249801

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Hitch Accessories
Do you have a question about this Hitch Accessory?


  • Availability of Vertical Posts for Rear Corners of PWC Trailer
  • I'd recommend something like the MaxxTow Magnetic Telescoping Hitch Aligner, part # MT70043. You can simply place the magnetic base on the rear corners of the trailer, and extend to its 33-1/2 inch height. The yellow balls at the top of each aligner will make it easy to tell where the rear corners of your trailer are. Once you have the trailer in the water, simply retract the aligners and pull them off the trailer. The aligners are 13-1/2 inches long when fully retracted, so they can be...

  • What is the Best Hitch Aligner System for a Salt Water Environment
  • The ball and stick set # MT70043 has a chrome finish but that would not last all that long in a salt water environment. None of the other options would fare much better in that environment. So you have a couple of options. First, the ball and sticks like this are not all that expensive so you could get one to see how long it lasts to determine if staying with it is a worthy investment. Or second you could go with a backup camera/hitch aligner # HM50002 and not worry about salt water...
