This is a folding basket adapter for two inch trailer hitch mounted cargo carriers. Specifically this will fit cargo carrier model 52018. As you can see we have the parts laid out here, we will install them on a cargo carrier and show you how it goes. But we will just cover the main points of it. Basically you see this bushing right here, what is going to happen is it is going to actually fit inside the tube of the cargo carrier itself, inside like this, so you will not see it. What happens is, as a bushing it reduces it down for this bolt, so when it sits inside down here, it eliminates all the slop. This pin here is just for when you fold it up or have it down, it is just a pin that keeps it in place, that is all it does. It has two positions: one for up and one for down position. We have a cargo carrier here, we will go ahead and install the adapter bar here, pretty simple. Again you want to put your bushing in first, and that stays there and then you slide your adapter bar over. Then you install the bolt and the washer on each side.
We are just going to leave that loose for now. Then we will put our safety pin in, and then we will go ahead and tighten down this nut and bolt, and we will be set. When you tighten these down, you want to take care, you just want to get the slack out. You do not want to torque it down too tight where you cannot rotate it. We have it installed in our upright position. Like I said, it is really nice to install into your hitch, and if you are going to pick something up you can leave it up as you go down the road. When you are ready to pick up the item you are going to transport, go ahead and pull the pin, lower it, then re-install your pin and your cargo carrier is ready for service. That pretty much sums it up for the folding basket adapter for 2 inch trailer hitch mounted cargo carrier part # 52015 from Surco
