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.

Works great. Able to lift my hitch out of the truck and then lower to a dolly to move out of the way. Also great for putting the hitch back in the truck.

Ron K.

Works great. I have a lift in my garage and I use the bracket when removing g and installing my 5th wheel hitch on my truck. I lower it on to a dolley and then roll it out of the way. So easy to use, I remove it after every camping trip.



by:

Outstanding product, a must to use to elevate the hitch unit to work on replacing the adapts plates to use with puck unit vice rail adapters.

Great bracket for lifting my SuperGlide hitch

Still working like it should.

Great tool to help lift my 5th wheel hitch out of my truck.

Howard

12/20/2022

A year later and I cannot say enough positive things about this lifting bracket. Used frequently and no signs of wear. Still highly recommend this product.



by:

Only using this twice a year it’s hard to judge long term but it’s solid,it’s simple and it works fine.Just the ticket to easily remove fifth wheel from truck bed.

Dan S.

11/4/2023

Have used so little it’s hard to judge long term durability.Stand by original review.Solid,simple,works like a charm.Save your back.use this.



by:

This does the job. I'm thinking about welding a handle under the eye to facilitate easier mounting to the fifth wheel.



by:

didn't know if this bracket would fit in a curt a16 5th wheel hitch. Worked fine. Lifting approx 290 lbs. Hitch and adapter.Quite satisfied with dm6100 lift bracket

Kurt V.

Follow up on demco 6100 lift bracket. Has been a little over a year and bracket working out great. 2017 ram 3500 truck,curt a16 fifth wheel hitch,pullrite bed adapter all inclusive abt 300lbs. I am 66 years old and cant lift what I used to be able to. Sure I can remove in pieces and do it without lift and bracket but is a lot of weight for me.Bracket and lift make it possible to remove in 1 piece with way less wear and tear on me.BIg plus is I can do it by myself.I lift to bed of truck on to 2x4s then remove bracket from hitch from there can push into position and in puck system.bracket works great.



by:

Worked perfectly in my companion 5th wheel hitch.

Todd

8/4/2022

Still working great. Strong and sturdy hoist. Can always count on it.



by:

Welded extremely strong and also powder coated. It would take forever to make one of the same quality. A little bit on the pricey side but worth it. I can easily lift my fifth wheel hitch in/out of the truck by myself with a winch.

Marvin G.

1/18/2021

Excellent tool for lifting the hitch.



by:

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.



by:

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!



by:

Great product, great service from etrailer!

Excellent solution for effortlessly lifting our fifth wheel hitch from the bed of the truck. I installed a hoist on the garage ceiling to do the lifting and rather than struggle with straps around the hitch to hook to the hoist, this bracket easily slides into the hitch and provides a no brainer way to raise it up. What ever method you use to lift your hitch (cherry picker, engine hoist, winch, ceiling hoist, pallet forks on a tractor, etc) this bracket simplifies the process. No chains, straps or ropes. Slide it in place, hook it up, and go.

AND, the item arrived 2 days earlier than originally projected!



by:

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.



by:

I was pleased to find this helpful tool. When lifting my fifth-wheel hitch out of my truck bed I used a rope that I tied around the hitch in order to lift it with my engine-block crane. It wasn't very satisfactory because the hitch lifted out at a bad angle due to the locations I chose in order to run the rope around the hitch, and my knots could have slipped. There had to be a better way. There were no suspension connection points installed on the B&W Companion Hitch, to assist me, so I sought another solution. This fitting does the job perfectly.



by:

The bracket works perfectly! I use it to lift the hitch out of my truck bed.

Marc M.

11/25/2021

Still going strong! Makes lifting the Pullrite in and out of my truckbed much easier! Have always had success using strainer and their products!



by:

Great tool for removing the Curt 20k 5th wheel hitch. I bought a hoist from Harbor Freight and installed it in my garage. I also made a coaster for the hitch so that I can wheel it around. Now all I do is insert the 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket into the mouth of the hitch, close it and I'm done. No more strain but a lot of gain.

A little expensive but worth it and they need to add this product to "5th wheel hitch accessories" to make it easier to find



by:

Works really well getting the hitch out of the bed.



by:

The lifting eye works great to pull our 380lb hitch out of our pickup.



by:

Works great, I use with a manual chain hoist in my garage and lift the entire hitch off and on the truck and leave it hanging when not using the hitch.

Glenn

4/24/2023

Still works great. So much easier and safer than my former system of steel cables hooked onto the manual chain hoist.



by:

It works just like I expected



by:

Perfect for lifting the fifth wheel hitch in and out of my truck.



by:

Works as expected.



by:

Works great



by:

Feel free to use these pictures. Highly recommend. Lifesaver for people who are getting too old to handle these hitched by themselves.



by:

Well built out of steel, makes it easy to remove and install using an engine hoist.

  • Hitch Head and Hitch Base Weights for B&W 5th Wheel Sliding Hitch for Ford Prep Package Installation
    The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w Slider for Ford Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3370 weighs 266 lbs. 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.

  • Weight of B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3370
    The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w Slider # BWRVK3370 referenced in your question has a total weight of around 266 pounds. Keep in mind though that it can be removed and installed in a couple of pieces. The base by itself weighs about 192 pounds and the head weighs 74 pounds. Even with the head and base removed separately you will likely still need an extra set of hands. Something you might consider is the use of a crane along with the Demco Lifting Bracket # DM6100 to help...

  • 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.

  • 5th Wheel Lifting Device for a Curt A25 5th Wheel Hitch
    I do have an option for you, but the B&W 5th Wheel Lifting Device for Companion and Patriot Hitches # BWRVXA3130 is designed to be used with the B&W Companion and Patriot 5th wheel hitches and has a more unique design. I recommend that you use the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 which has a more universal design and will work with your Curt A25 5th wheel hitch.

  • Can Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 Lift a 5th Wheel Hitch Head and Base or Just the Head
    Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket # DM6100 can lift the hitch and its base provided that both combined are under the 500 pound capacity of the bracket. We also have some devices that can do the heavy lifting such as hoist # DL25727. With the hoist you would be limited to 1200 pounds, so this should meet your needs.

The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w Slider for Ford Towing Prep Package # BWRVK3370 weighs in at 263lbs.

  • Can I Use Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket With PullRite SuperGlide
    The Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket part # DM6100 will work well with your PullRite SuperGlide. The capture plate is on the actual pin box of the trailer so it would not affect the use of the Demco lifting bracket. You would just open the jaw of the SuperGlide with the handle and put the lifting bracket in the jaws. Then you can lift the fifth wheel hitch from the truck with a cable.

    I recommend the Demco Hijacker 18K Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider part # DM8550034 with the custom rails part # DM8552011-71 for the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 short bed. The Hijacker is designed so you don't have to get out of the truck to adjust the slider when making a sharp turn which can become very inconvenient especially in cold weather. The Hijacker will give you about 14" of travel for cab clearance and 3" of adjustable height for bed rail clearance. We do recommend to have...

The Hijacker is one of the most convenient fifth wheel hitch options on the market because you don't have to get out of your truck to adjust the slider when you make turns which can become inconvenient especially in city traffic or bad weather. It also features a 360 degree contact with the king pin to prevent the rattling and chucking you may experience...

  • Recommended Lifting Bracket And Crane For Removing 5th Wheel Hitch
    I reached out to PullRite and they said you can definitely 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.

  • Will the B&W 5th Wheel Lifting Device Work With Other Hitch Brands
    If you are looking for a universal lifting device for a fifth wheel hitch I recommend the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket part # DM6100 because it mimics the shape of a standard kin pin. The B&W 5th Wheel Lifting Device part # BWRVXA3130 is more or less designed for an exact jaw shape/thickness so it won't work well for other fifth wheel hitches.

    The B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package part # BWRVK3300 weighs about 147 lbs. The good news is the B&W breaks down into 2 manageable pieces (base and the head) so it does make it easier to install. The B&W is one of our most popular fifth wheel brands because of how beefy the hitches are. They also have a 1" thick jaw to prevent king pin rattle. Some of our customers use truck bed cranes which will allow you an easier way to get the hitch in and out of the...

  • Is Cover Such As Classic Accessories CA80116 Recommended For Covering Fifth Wheel Hitch
    In a perfect world, the hitch would be removed and stored out of the elements when it's not being used. If a hoist is available, a lift bracket like # DM6100 can be used to safely lift the hitch. If it isn't practical to remove the hitch between uses, a cover like the # CA80116 would work nicely for you. The cover will work with a hitch that has a 24 x 24 inch footprint that's up to 18 inches tall. If you click the provided link, you can see a product description video.

The head assembly alone that you remove weighs in at 48 lbs which means the rest of the base weighs about 140 lbs.

    We do have everything you'll need to tow a 5th wheel RV with your 2016 Toyota Tundra 5-1/2' bed, but we unfortunately haven't had the opportunity yet to do a installation like this. The first thing you need is a base rail kit and for that I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit # RP50084-58 because it is the only true custom installation kit available. What this means is that you won't have to drill into your vehicle frame for the installation. With the base rails...
