Today we are going to demonstrate the Easy-Hitch Light-Up Hitch Aligning System, part number JE00600. This hitch aligning system makes attaching to your trailer a one person job. By putting one of the hitch aligning rods onto the tow vehicle hitch ball and one onto the coupler of the trailer, you can simply let the light up LED ends of the aligning rods do the backing up for you. These retractable hitch aligners are unique in that they have a light up LED end to them, which will help align the vehicle and the trailer in the dark. 0:30
We are going to go through a quick demonstration and show you how this easy aligning tool works. Well, the first thing that you want to do when you are hooking up your tow vehicle to your trailer is to make sure that the trailer coupler itself is taller than your hitch ball. You can use your aligning tool to quickly check that. What you want to do is simply take the piece and set it on the ground, rise the rod up to where it is even with the top of the hitch ball and then go to your trailer. Make sure that your aligning rod is shorter than the coupler. 0:56
Next, we will take one of the aligning rods and set it right on top of the hitch ball. Go ahead and extend that out. Next we will take the second rod, set it right on top of the coupler and, again, extend it out. And, if you are trying to hook up at night and want to use your flashing LEDs at the top, simply take it and twist the top clockwise until it turns on. With the aligning rods in place, we can go ahead and back up our tow vehicle now, until our hitch aligning rod that is on our tow vehicle hitch ball makes contact with the coupler on the trailer. When contact is made, we know that our hitch ball is properly aligned under the coupler. There you have it for the Light-Up Telescoping Hitch Aligning System, part number JE00600.
