Video Transcript for Demco Fifth Wheel DM6081 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the replacement head for the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th wheel trailer hitch. Now this will replace the head from your Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th wheel trailer hitch with a 13,000 pound, 18,000 pound, or 21,000 pound capacity. The rotating hitch head turns up to 90 degrees with your trailer. That rotation will create the force that propels the automatic slider to work. These built-in brackets right here in the head will stabilize your pin box so that the king pin won't rotate in the hitch, so there's no need for a separate capture plate for your standard pin boxes. This uses a wrap around single piece jaw; provides a nice secure connection.

Gives you a 360 degree jaw to kingpin contact, because then that'll give you less rattle, more security than the slide bar jaws. Right up here, you notice there's a 3-quarter inch thick solid steel locking bar that will reinforce the connection of your coupled trailer. This will automatically lock into place when the jaw closes. This head is a double-pivot design which uses hook up, helps limit chucking. Pivots front to back and side to side, has a spring-loaded handle right here with a nice comfort grip on it, allows for simple coupling. Has a tethered locking pin right here, and if you just release that, you can see that it's tethered so you won't lose it.

Let's you secure the handle on the open or the closed position. This hitch head is a sturdy steel construction, has a nice rust resistant black powder coat finish. It is made in the U.S.A., and a few specs on this, it is designed to fit standard pin boxes from 12 inches to 14 inches wide. Now, locking plates are required for use with a Glide Ride, Mor Ryde, Trailair Tri Glide, and the 5th Airborne pin boxes; we do sell those separately on our website. This comes with all the installation hardware you can see right here, and a set of detailed instructions. Just to show you on this handle how you would open it, all you have to do is just pull it all the way out, and when you do that, it automatically locks in the open position.

Now you're ready to couple. Here's an example. This is what a king pin would look like on your 5th wheel. You can see how that slides in onto the dual jaw, or the single jaw actually, single-piece jaw. You can see once it gets in far enough it would automatically completely wrap around it, and then here's that locking bar that slides into place, locks it into place.

Then to release it, then you would take your pin and lock it, put it through the hole, line the hole up, drop your pin through and then lock it, and then the handle wouldn't move and you're ready to tow. Then to remove it, just remove your pin, and when you pull this out all the way, then you'll be able to take your king pin right out. That should do it for the review on the replacement head for the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th wheel trailer hitch.
