Video Transcript for Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be having a look at the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket. Part Number DM6100. Many of our customers here at etrailer have come to us and have expressed that they've had experienced difficulty in the past when it comes time to remove the 5th wheel assembly from the bed of their truck when they want to have full access to it when they're not towing their trailer. Many have also said that it takes two to three people sometimes to remove a 5th wheel assembly, especially when they have a slider, such as this one, because the slider assembly adds a lot of weight. When you want to make it a one man operation, that's where this Demco Lifting Bracket comes into place.As you will notice it looks like a kingpin. That serves a purpose of sliding into the jaws of our 5th wheel giving us a solid attachment point.

To utilize it we'll simply open our jaws of our 5th wheel. With the jaws open we can insert our lifting device. Making sure we watch our fingers. Enclose the jaws around it. With our lifting adapter now in place we now have an eyelet here to attach a cable or chain to a engine hoist, a standard hoist on a ceiling, a crane, a wench, something of that nature.

Any lifting device that you have where you can attach a cable to properly. We can use that to lift this out of the bed of our truck.Now this lifting device is made of a sturdy steel construction and has a lifting capacity of 500 lbs., which is minimally sufficient to handle most every 5th wheel regardless if you had a slider or not. For a few dimensions for you, you're looking at 5-3/4" tall, from the very base of it to the very top of it. Diameter here is 2", just like your standard kingpin. The base is 3" wide.

The eyelet opening has a diameter of 1-1/8". That completes our look at the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket. Part Number DM6100.

I have a Demco 13k slider fifth wheel hitch in my truck and I needed a way to remove from the truck when not pulling RV. Demco made a lift bracket to insert in jaw for lift removal with a hoist. I searched the internet and etrailer was one of few that stocked this item at a reasonable price. I purchased this item and got fast delivery. I will return to etrailer when I need a RV trailer related item. 614268

Simple, effective way to hoist your fifth wheel in/out of your truck. This provides a secure method to attach an overhead hoist for lifting a fifth wheel. It's inexpensive too! 566690

We have only used it once so far. I use this set up to get it to the tail gate, and then the pickup truck crane to get it out. 649699

Works great. Lock in, hook up, pick up, Done. My Demco 21K Autoslide hitch is about 300Lbs of pure greatness but tough to manhandle by myself. This makes it easy, along with my chain hoist of course. 518428

Just received the 5'th wheel lifting bracket. Have not been able to use it yet, but it certainly looks like it will serve my needs. Fits my hitch well and provides an attachment point (eye) for lifting the hitch out of truck with my tractor front end loader. 463746

This is a great product. Have not used it yet, but it is what I need when I need to lift my fifth wheel hitch out of or into the bed of my pickup. Eliminates the need for straps, chains, or cables to get the job done. 445505


Comments

Ive used it 3 times and it works great. No need for chains, straps, or anything else. Put this where the kingpin goes and it keeps the hitch centered while lifting. Great product.

I bought the Demo 21K fifth wheel hitch for my pickup. The only issue is the hitch is very heavy, it takes two men and a boy to lift it out of the truck bed! Now with the Demco hitch lift, i can attach a hoist to the rafters in my garage and take the hitch out of the truck by myself. 560066



- DM6100
by:

Works great with the help of a chain hoist. The price is a little high and if I could have borrowed a welder I would have just made one! The only reason I ordered it is because I was in a hurry. Like I said, a little expensive but if you can’t make one then buy this one. It works. 495876

The Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket - DM6100 works great with my over head winch for lifting my Demco 5th wheel hitch from the bed of my truck. Just clip into 5th wheel, make sure 5th wheel is latched. Then raise winch and drive out from under hitch. I then lower onto a cart to move. one person job now! No strained mussels any more! 345994

by:

The Demco adapter to lift the hitch looks very well-made. I actually thought it would be a little bit bigger than it is but it certainly will get the job done. Not only am I looking forward to using it I am extremely impressed by the videos pictures and customer service of etrailer. I have certainly tried to do my homework and I have found no other website as complete and customer oriented. They will certainly always be my first stop when looking for accessories 463362

Great idea, nice and sturdy. Paint is sub par. If you look at it wrong if chips. Looks like it was dipped. Even with the fill-a-foam the was a chip. Used it once . DEMCO needs to look into powder coating. For now it will just be coated with grease. 640439

I have a Demco Autoslider for my 40' fifth wheel and F-350 6 3/4' box. It is a great hitch, but weighs a lot and installing and removing the hitch is not easy given the weight. I had previously used straps, however getting the hitch centered on my chain hoist took some work. The Demco lifting bracket makes that task much easier. 638203

I feel the lifting bracket was somewhat overpriced for how it's made, but that is the manufacturers doing not the vendor, and it is the only one on the market. Etrailer does sell it for less than other sellers and the product does work very well. Shipping and packaging were first class, I'll buy from Etrailer in the future. 554607

  • Recommended Lifting Bracket And Crane For Removing 5th Wheel Hitch
  • I reached out to PullRite and they said you can definitley use the trailer to remove the hitch from your truck, but you don't want to leave it hanging there. They suggest lowering onto saw horses or another sturdy surface. That is a lot of weight to leave on your pin box and king pin as well as the jaws of your hitch. I know that there are people that will use the MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane for 2" Hitches - 1,000 lbs # MT70238 along with the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket...

  • Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket To Install Or Remove 5th Wheel Hitches
  • The Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 is a product that Demco makes based on a suggestion we made to them. It allows you to lift their heavier fifth wheel hitches weighing around 300 lbs using a hoist or crane like the MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane for 2" Hitches - 1,000 lbs # MT70238 in a safe way to protect you, the hitch, and your truck.

  • The Viking Solutions Rack Jack Hoist with Winch for 2" Hitches - 300 lbs # 310-VRJ001 will work to remove and install the hitch based on the Curt Q16 hitch weight with sliding base. For an easier and more stable system, you may want to consider the MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane for 2" Hitches - 1,000 lbs # MT70238. I recommend using the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 that will fit into the jaws of your hitch where the king pin would sit for a strong connection for either...

  • Recommendation on How To Easily Lift Demco Autoslider Into Bed of Truck
  • This is a great question. We actually addressed this with Demco and we came up with a solution. They started making the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 which can be used with an engine hoist, or winch, but we have also found a more mobile option in the MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane for 2" Hitches - 1,000 lbs # MT70238. This allows you to easily load and unload a heavy hitch like the Demco Autoslider # DM8550034 into or out of the bed. The crane arm is not long enough...

  • What Does B&W Companion Slider Hitch # BWRVK3400 Weigh
  • The B&W Companion Slider Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3400 that you referenced weighs 280 lbs. The hitch does pretty easily come apart to make taking it out of the bed of your truck a bit easier. We also have a truck bed crane part # MT70238 which will fit the hitch of your truck and allow you an easier way to get the hitch in and out of the truck. You'll need the part # DM6100 too. This fits in the jaws of the hitch and gives an anchor point for the crane to grab...

  • Truck Bed Crane to Load Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch into Chevrolet Truck
  • The MaxxTow Hydraulic Crane # MT70238 will be able to get a fifth wheel hitch into your truck bed but it's likely not going to be able to get it into position. The boom is 43 inches long and you'll be reaching from the side of your truck's tailgate. Whatever kind of crane you use the bracket # DM6100 would make a great addition to it. The bracket fits into the jaws of the hitch and then it would be hooked to the crane.

If you piece it out for installing to the base and the head, which I do recommend, you have two people easily install it. The base # BWRVB3370 weighs 192 lbs and is where you need the extra set of hands. The hitch head # BWRVC3006 weighs 74 lbs. If you don't have a second set of hands, then I recommend the MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane for 2" Hitches # MT70238 along...

  • Recommended System To Tow A Gooseneck Or Fifth Wheel Trailer With 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
  • I do have a system that lets you tow either a gooseneck trailer or a fifth wheel. First, you will need the EZr Double Lock Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # C611-624. This system gives you a gooseneck hitch in the bed of your truck with a 30,000-lb capacity. You would then need an adapter, part # C16220 to install in the gooseneck ball opening in the bed of the truck. This gives you base rails for a fifth wheel hitch like part # C16245.

  • Compatibility of MaxxTow Hydraulic Lift Crane # 70238 for 5th Wheel Hitch Installation/Removal
  • The MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane # MT70238 can absolutely work with your 2018 Ram 2500 Short Bed for your 20K Reese Hitch. You will need to adjust the 43 inch boom to ensure you get the correct location, which may require lifting and then repositioning in bed and then a second position to assist in removal from the bed. I recommend using the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 to assist with moving your hitch in and out of your truck bed and into position.

  • Recommendation for Removing Demco 18K Hijacker Auto Slide from Truck Bed
  • I reached out to my contact at Demco, and they said the 18K Hijacker autoslide # DM8550034 weighs enough that the slider portion could engage in that operation. They do not recommend putting that weight on the hitch and kingpin/pin box. Your best option is to manually move your hitch to the rear of your truck where the MaxxTow Crane # MT70238 can assist you in lower it safely. The Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 will assist with that. I recommend you get a friend or two to...

  • Is the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 Compatible With a B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Yes, the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 acts as a king pin on a pin box so it will fit any standard 5th wheel hitch, like the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3255. If you do not already have a lifting system to use with the lifting bracket, a great option is the MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane for 2" Hitches # MT70238 which installs in a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver and has a 1,000 lb weight capacity.

  • Weight of Demco Hijacker 18K and Can Demco Lifting Pin Support It
  • The overall weight of the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 18k # DM8550034 is 273 lbs. Since the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 has a capacity of 500 lbs it would easily be able to lift the hitch. I attached a review video for the hitch and the lifting pin for you to check out as well.

That is quite a bit of weight to lift in and out of the truck bed but the head does come off of the hitch to make it a bit lighter weight. We also have a truck bed crane part # MT70238 which will fit the hitch of your truck and allow you an easier way to get the hitch in and out of the truck. You'll need the...

We also have some devices that can do the heavy lifting such as truck bed crane # BTBB07583 or hoist # BTEHOISTUL. With the hoist you would be limited to 440 pounds.

  • My recommendation for a fifth wheel hitch that will work with the pucks in the bed of your 2017 Ram 3500 is the B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3600. You will want to make sure there have been no changes to the puck system to accommodate the Companion. This hitch fits right in the pucks and no additional rails are needed as you expressed you want. This is a quality hitch with 1-inch dual jaws that provide 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact. The gross towing capacity for this hitch is 25,000-lbs....

  • Closing The Jaws On Demco 5th Wheel Hitch After Uncoupling

The jaws will not automatically close, they will remain open for you to reconnect unless you manually close them. You can do this carefully with your hand although I don't recommend that for safety, or you can use a tool to put force on the spring loaded jaws.

  • Recommended Options For Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer With Truck That Has 6-1/2 Ft Bed
  • It is really hard towing a trailer with a gooseneck adapter behind a truck that has a 6-1/2 ft bed. Turning clearance will be a problem and a goose box like part # RP94716 will not give you additional horizontal clearance. In my opinion I recommend installing a fifth wheel slider in your truck. This would give you the clearance and turning capability you will need with a 6-1/2 ft bed. If you want to let me know the year make and model of the truck I will be glad to make some recommendations...

  • Who Makes the 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100

The lifting bracket has a weight capacity of 500 lbs so you shouldn't have trouble lifting any 5th wheel hitch, plus it is made right here in the USA!

  • The MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane for 2" Hitches - 1,000 lbs # MT70238 is often uses along with the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 to get hitches in and out of the bed. The crane boom arm isn't always long enough to get the hitch in the base rails or pucks, but it will get close and it is not too difficult to move the hitch inside the bed compared to lifting it in or out.
