When used with short-bed pickups, this slider (or glider) helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a glider to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.

Glides on Composite Material

Composite Bars on Husky 10-26K Glider

Durable, corrosion-resistant composite bars are attached to the top of the squared metal rails of the Husky 10 Composite slider. A similar composite material is built into the body of the slider. These composite materials allow the slider to glide smoothly along the rails without any of the grinding that often occurs with metal-on-metal contact. The result is a slider system that wears less and operates more quietly than models with rollers and metal rails.

Non-Binding Latch Mechanism

Binding occurs when tension builds up between the fifth-wheel hitch and the slider. This happens most often when your truck and trailer are either somewhat out of line with one another or when they are on uneven ground. When a slider gets bound up, you typically have to fight the tension by jerking the handle or jockeying your truck back and forth, both of which can be frustrating and ultimately futile.

Compression Cylinder and Pivot Stops on Husky 10-26K Glider

The Husky 10 Composite glider is built with a latch mechanism that inhibits binding by preventing an unmanageable buildup of pressure. It uses a compression cylinder and pivot stops instead of pins or traditional latches, which tend to result in binding. To release the slider, simply move the handle into the unlocked position and drive your truck forward or back to position your trailer for turning. The compression cylinder is responsible for the load; it compresses to absorb any pressure buildup. When you move your truck, the cylinder relaxes and decompresses to release some of that pressure. Once the binding pressure is released, the pivot stops are able to move, allowing the slider to glide into the proper position. No more jockeying your truck back and forth or fighting with a stuck handle.

Video Transcript for Husky 10-26 K Roller For 5th Wheel Hitches Manufacturer Review

Speaker: Most fifth wheel trailers we're not designed to tow with short box pickups. With the kingpin properly located just ahead of the rear axle of the truck there is not enough clearance for tight turns. Husky towing products has the solution with the Husky 10 Composite Glider, which equips your short box pickup for towing fifth wheel trailers. The Husky 10 temporarily moves the fifth wheel hitch back 10 inches in the truck bed to allow for more room between the trailer and the truck cab for low speed trailer maneuvering. It's how the Husky 10 accomplishes this move that sets it apart. First is the innovative no-binding latch mechanism which has a well-designed ergonomically friendly handle that can be reached easily over the truck side rails. The handle can always be move into the unlock position no matter the angle of the truck and the trailer. With the hitch unlatched a little movement of the truck releases the locking mechanism allowing the glider to move to the next position where it will automatically lock into place.

This means one person can very easily reposition the hitch head without multiple trips to the back of the truck. The next big difference is the Husky 10 Composite Gliders which greatly minimize friction reduce noise and protect against corrosion. The highly UV resistant and durable composite materials are designed for long wear and high loads. The Husky 10 can be used with our silver or black series fifth wheel hitches, taking full advantage of all the hitch head features of your choice. It mounts on all current rails and all standard rails in the 22 and 5 inaudible 00:01:33 inch footprint. Equip your short box truck for fifth wheel towing with the easy to operate Husky 10 Composite Glider. .

Ask the Experts about this Husky Accessories and Parts

  • Can I Just Add Slider Legs To My Husky 26K Fixed 5th Wheel Hitch By Replacing the Legs?
    The good news is that you don't need special rails, you can just buy the custom brackets and use the rails you have assuming they are husky brand rails. They should look like part # HT30686. The Husky Custom Mounting Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches for your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 is # HT31413. The Husky 10 Composite Slider for Silver Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10" Travel - 26,000 lbs, # HT32042, that you reverenced is a confirmed fit for your truck as well. You can...

  • How Much More Clearance Will A Sidewinder Provide Versus A Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch
    I am assuming that the X distance you mentioned is from the center of the hitch jaws to the back of the cab and the Y dimension is half the width of your trailer. It is recommended that you do not use a Sidewinder pin box with a slider hitch, so you would need to lock your hitch in the towing position to be able to use a Sidewinder. You can take a quick measurement to see if adding a Sidewinder will give you the additional clearance you need. This measurement should be taken when the...

  • Which Husky 5th Wheel Slider Base to Use with Hitch Head 31326
    The Husky 26K-rated Composite Slider assembly # HT32042 and the similar # 16K-rated Slider # HT31196 differ in weight capacity as you noted and also in their material for the slider. The slider # HT32042 uses composite materials inside that avoid metal-on-metal contact for quieter operation. The composite model also weighs more since it is built to handle 10,000-lbs more trailer weight. The correct base for use with hitch head 31326 is part # HT31196. The bolt holes for the head will...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a Husky Slider and 2014 Ram 3500 Short Bed
    The Husky hitches fit industry standard above the bed rails. So you can use Curt installation kit # C16426-204 or Reese installation kit # RP56010-53 for your 2014 Ram 3500. There is a big difference in the price but the reason for this is that the Reese kit includes longer rails and brackets that install on the outsides of the frame only so installation is much quicker and easier. Current pricing for each kit is available below and on the product pages. I have linked the instructions...

  • Can the Husky 10 Composite Slider # HT32042 be Used with a Black Series Husky 20k Hitch
    Your Husky 20k fifth wheel hitch SHOULD be a black series Husky hitch based on my research. Which means it would be compatible with the Husky 10 Composite Slider # HT32042 that you referenced.

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500
    You are correct, there are 3 available custom fifth wheel rail kits that will fit your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500. The Curt Kit part # C16411-204 The Reese Outboard Rail Kit part # RP56001-53 The Reese Inboard Rail Kit part # RP50066-58 The good news is all of them will work with your Husky 16k hitch so you have plenty of options. The easiest to install would be the Outboard Reese kit part # RP56001-53, only downside is the rails are taller and would take up more room in your truck...

  • Should a Slider Husky 5th Wheel Hitch be Used in a Short Bed Truck Instead of the Fixed Version
    Since your Husky hitch is a fixed hitch then a slider should be all you need for the short bed truck. Or you could just get the slider base, # HT32042, and put the Husky head and center section (that the head sits on) you have on it. The slider base offers 10 inches of travel.

  • Slider Recommendation for a Black Series 20K Husky HD Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The correct slider for you to use with your Black Series Husky 20k HD hitch would be the Husky 10 Composite Slider # HT32042. This will slide the hitch back 10 inches for more clearance so that you can make tight turns with your tow vehicle. A Pro Series slider would not work for your vehicle.
