Video Transcript for Reese Weight Distribution RP6637 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number RP6637. These are the Reese replacement lift brackets for Reese Weight Distribution Systems. The brackets are going to mount on the trailer tongue and they're going to provide the connection points for the chainS that are connected to the weight distribution spring bars. Those chains are going to connecT right here to this little hook. The lift bar attaches to the handle, right here. That's going to make lowering and raising the spring bars much easier and safer.

That lift handle is included. The replacement unit is designed for use with Reese Weight Distribution Systems. You're also going to get your two safety pins. They through this area right here. That's going to keep the brackets in the raised position. These are made from a steel construction and they're going to have a nice black powder coat finish which is going to make it stand up well against rust and corrosion.

You're going to get two snap up brackets. You're going to get the two pins, your installation bolts will go into this slot back here. You're going to get the left handle. Now these are going to install approximately thirty inches back from the coupler. If we take a measurement of the width, that's going to let us know about how much room along the trailer frame it's going to take up. From edge to edge that looks to be about five and a half inches so it's going to take up about five and a half inches of space along the trailer frame.

If we measure the opening here, you see that measures just a little over two and a half inches. So this will not fit trailer frames that are wider than two and a half inches. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RP6637. These are the replacement lift brackets for the Reese Weight Distribution Systems.

Designed for use with Reese weight-distribution systems, this kit includes 2 snap-up brackets and a handle for easy lifting and lowering.


I bought these to replace a bent bracket. Decided to replace as a pair. Work great on my Reese trunnion bar setup. Shipping didn't take long. Having installation instructions included was a nice touch.


These weight distribution brackets really helped my trailer hitch weight. I am glad that they really helped when I pull my toy hauler. Thanks for your products.



They work very good. It pulls up the weight off of my hitch how ever much I want! Thanks for your products.


Lift brackets were not quite a direct replacement for my WD hitch (a ProPride 3P), but they work great and are much easier/quicker to use. The paint wears off near the pivot points and where the chain goes. Every so often, I take them off and re-paint them so they look pretty. After a year, they still work great, but there is very slight wear where the chain hooks up.


Always had excellent service with e-trailer. I ordered parts for an equalizing hitch, was advised that if I ordered under a different part number I would get faster delivery at a cheaper price and quicker delivery and a free handle. So I did, thanks e-trailer.


Delivered on time and was an exact fit for the old ones. The retaining pins seem kind of small but haven't done any towing yet to see how they hold up.


Very happy with the brackets. The pins look a bit flimsy so I replaced them with better lockable ones.


The lift brackets fit the sway bars we got from our neighbor. Worked very well. Wish the transmission on the old Suburban we previously used with the bars, worked as well. The "new to us" F-350 diesel 4x4 should remedy that problem. A bit over kill, but was what we could find at the time. Thanks.



Perfect - we have used it and it works well - used for over a month last summer - will be using again this summer. Thanks for having replacement parts.


I received excellent assistance when contacting etrailer by phone, trying to determine the correct piece-items needed for my new trailer, to replace the parts for my Reese Sway-Control/Wt Distribution system that I "lost" when selling my old trailer.
they were polite, patient and helpful.
This hardware set, as well as the Lift brackets and Dual-sway Cams were as heavy-duty as needed (as described) and will be putting them onto my new trailer as soon as I pick, it up.


So easy to install and works great! The trailer pulls much better with the equalizer hitch installed. These were parts to put on a second trailer in order to use a hitch I already had. Very timely delivery and easy installation!
Great source for parts! Thanks everyone.


Very pleased with the products, perfect fit to my already weight distribution hitch. shipping was fast and the package was surprisingly wrapped better than I thought it would have been. the brake controller was the easiest to install, Just connect the cable to the connector under the dash and it works. Just read the instructions on setting the power level for your trailer brakes. that is very important. Sorry about no pictures bad weather while installing but will take pictures of finished product. Thanks again


I have not installed the lift brackets on my trailer, but cannot find any reason that they would not work as designed. It is winter in the northeast and I will not install for a while. These lift brackets will definitely aid in hauling my 4500lb enclosed car hauler trailer.


I bought a new camper and wanted to go out camping the next week but i needed weight distribution brackets and a an anti sway mount before i could go. I ordered these parts from and in a matter of a few days the correct parts showed up and i was able to install them before i needed to leave for my camping trip. Needless to say i was very happy.


I bought these for a second trailer. My load leveling hitch now works for both trailers. I'm happy with these.


I am very pleased with lift brackets
from Reese and the quality is top notch. I will use etrailer when ever I need items you carry.
Sorry I don't have a picture.

i purchased these lift brackets as i will be using a weight dist system on my race car trailer to buy them was a great price from etrailer for both sides for weigh dist lift brackets


We purchased Reese hitch accessories from and are very satisfied with our purchase.


Waited until I actually used them to review. I put them on an 18' car trailer to haul my tractor with. Night and day difference in towing! I will be drilling and bolting them on directly now that I'm sure of the positioning.


Very happy with my purchases from etrailer. I chose standard shipping (5-7 days) because it was free for orders over $150, but to my surprise my entire order came in 2.5 days. All the products were exactly as described and exactly what I wanted for my new trailer. Also after a lot of research etrailer had the best prices and name brand products that you can trust.


When I called Etrailer I had a polite sales rep, Gwen on the line right away. She knew just what I was asking for. she showed me a photo of the part to verify it was correct and had it ordered in minutes. The part showed up the next day! Free Shipping/!!

Good Job Gwen, Good Job

Derrick K.




this is a Reese product, I expect it to be good and it is. fits and works as represented.The price, customer service and shipping was great.

Carl H.


Lots of long heavy miles . Works fone


I have placed many orders in the last few months & have found E-trailer very helpful. There web site is fanatic showing all options for your search of items. Shipping far the best I have ever had dealing with company's. Glad E-trailer is responsive to my needs. Thanks Guys great Job


Can't really give a review on the product because we never received it. It was delivered by UPS to the wrong address and neither UPS or etrailer would take blame for it. We even were asked to drive where it was delivered to pick it up, but no one claimed to receive it. We had paid for 3 day shipping, needed the part to pick up our camper in 2 days, but apparently etrailer could not help us. Had to rush to find the piece elsewhere.


My order shipped the same day I placed order with multiple parts.

All products were as expected. High quality.

I was able to install from the supplied instructions the same day received.

Very satisfied and would recommend

  • Can Reese Weight Distribution Lift Brackets # RP6637 Fit 2 inch Wide Trailer Frame
    The Reese Replacement Lift Brackets with Handle for Reese Weight Distribution Systems # RP6637 that you referenced do fit a 2 inch wide trailer frame. These hangers don't carry the weight of a trailer at any point so they aren't weight rated but they this would work just fine on a trailer with the weight you mentioned.

  • Problem Lifting Snap-Up Brackets on Weight Distribution System
    As a first step, I would recommend reviewing the set-up instructions included with your system. Typically, there should not be so much pressure on the spring bars that its difficult to snap the brackets upward. How are the spring bars situated once the brackets are snapped up in place? The spring bars should be angled back and downward from the weight distribution head, or at least parallel with the trailer frame, but certainly not pointing upward. If your system is set up according...

  • Will Reese Lift Brackets # RP6637 work on a Trailer with 788 lbs of Tongue Weight
    The Replacement Lift Brackets, # RP6637, will fit on trailer frames that are 3 inches tall or greater and up to 2-1/2 inches wide along the top. As long as your trailer has a frame with those measurements you would be fine to use these hangers on your trailer with 8,600 lbs total weight and 788 lbs of tongue weight. You will want to use a weight distribution system with spring bars that encompass the tongue weight of your trailer when it is loaded. Tongue weight also includes the weight...

  • Installation Instructions for the Reese Weight Distribution System Tip Up Brackets # RP6637
    The Reese Weight Distribution System Tip Up Brackets, item # RP6637, are designed so that they can be installed with just the bolts wedged against the trailer frame, or they can be bolted to the frame. Most people opt to just tighten the frame bolts and leave it at that, so that they do not have to drill into the trailer frame. I have linked a set of installation instructions for you to review, on page 3 you will find the instructions for installing the tip up brackets.

  • Replacement Frame Bracket Recommendation for Reese V5 Weight Distribution System
    The replacement lift brackets part # RP6637 that you referenced should work well for you. These also come with the handle to make snapping up the bracket easier, set screws and safety pins to lock the brackets in the raised position.

  • Quantity of Replacement Lift Brackets # RP6637
    The Replacement Lift Brackets # RP6637 includes two frame brackets. Since you need two all you need to do is order a quantity of 1 and you'll get the pair.

  • Clamp-On Brackets For Weight Distribution System
    We do sell replacement brackets for some weight distribution systems. For example, the Replacement Lift Brackets with Handle # RP6637 is a replacement set of brackets for Reese weight distribution systems. If you can provide us with more information on the weight distribution system you are currently using, then we can try to match up a set of clamps/brackets for you. I have attached a link to our replacement parts for weight distribution hitches.

  • What Size Trailer Frame Will the Replacement Weight Distribution Chain Hangers Fit On
    The Replacement Lift Brackets, # RP6637, will fit on trailer frames that are 3 inches tall or greater and up to 2-1/2 inches wide along the top. I added a photo of the brackets on a 2 inch by 3 inch trailer frame for you to see. The lift brackets mounting bolt is also long enough to accommodate a C channel style frame. These brackets will require 5-1/2 inches of space along the length of your 4 inch trailer frame for installation. This means that you will need 5-1/2 inches along the frame...

    The part # RP21501 includes one lift bracket. If you need two brackets you would want the part # RP6637 instead. This comes with a lift handle as well.

  • Replacement Lift Brackets for a Weight Distribution System
    It sounds like you are looking for a set of lift brackets for a weight distribution system. Although it would be helpful if I knew which system you currently have, lift brackets are fairy universal therefore you would more than likely be able to use either part # RP6637 or part # RP58305. The part ending in "37" are clamp-on style brackets that will fit trailer frames up to 2-1/2" wide. The part ending in "05" are bolt-on style brackets that will be needed if your frame rail is wider...

  • Replacement Lift Brackets With Handle To Adjust Spring Bar On Reese Weight Distribution System
    Replacement Lift Brackets with Handle for Reese Weight Distribution Systems # RP6637 that you were looking at is a kit that includes 2 of the Replacement Lift Bracket for Reese Weight Distribution Systems # RP21501. This is the current bracket offered by Reese; Reese also confirmed that they could not locate a part number 21500 like you have so it is possible that you actually have 21501, or that you have an old part number which has now been replaced by the current 21501. Either way,...

  • Chain Hanger Bracket for I-Beam Frame for Weight Distribution
    For a wider I-beam frame like what you have the best solution for weight distribution chain hangers would be to first have a welder box the frame where you'd need to attach the hangers and then use bolt on hangers like the part # RP58305.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Chain Hangers For Trailer With Angle-Iron Frame
    I can not see a way you could install the Replacement Lift Brackets, part # RP6637 on your trailer other than welding as you mentioned. I recommend using the Reese Chain Hangers, part # RP58305. These bolt on to the frame and do not rely on trailer frames like the # RP6637 hangers.

  • Replacement Snap Up Bracket Recommendation for Reese Weight Distribution System
    Sounds like you have a standard Reese weight distribution system based on the part number for the shank that you mentioned. So for frame chain hangers we have the # RP6637 which comes with a set of hangers for both sides of the trailer plus a lift handle.

  • Are Reese Weight Distribution Snap Up Brackets RP21501 and RP6637 the Same
    We offer the part # RP21501 that you mentioned which is basically just as single bracket that comes with the # RP6637. In other words the part # RP6637 is just two of the brackets part # RP21501.

  • Difference Between Weight Distribution Chain Lift Brackets # 586392 and # RP21501
    Because your trailer is fairly heavy, I would recommend you go with 2 of the # 58392 lift brackets. The 58392 has extra gusseting welded to it for reinforcement, and would be better suited to a heavier trailer like yours, because the spring bars will be under greater tension than they would be for a lighter trailer. Part # RP6637 is a kit that includes two of the # RP21501 brackets and the lift handle. If you look at the photo I have edited for you, you can see the difference between...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 6,000 lb Trailer
    The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. If your trailer weighs in at 6,000...

  • Reese Weight Distribution Snap up Bracket Recommendation
    If you chose to drill into the frame of your trailer to install the # 58392 there are two holes that the bracket has for that purpose. A better deal would be to order the part # RP6637 that is these brackets sold in a pair, plus an additional lift bar. For extra safety pins you would want Reese Replacement Clips for Weight Distribution Uplift Brackets, part # 58029.

  • Can One Weight Distribution System Be Used for Two Trailers
    As long as the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of the trailer plus the weight of anything stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle falls within the effective range of the system, which would be 600-1200 lbs in the case of the # 49570 system you had looked at, you would not need to change bars. As long as the tongue weight of both trailers is within the effective range of the system, you could certainly use the same system for two different trailers. I would recommend...

  • Weight Capacity of Reese Weight Distribution System for Class V Hitch
    Weight distributions don't typically have the same weight capacity classifications as other towing products. But if you are looking for a weight distribution system for a Class V hitch with a 2-1/2 inch opening we have great options from Reese. For example, we have the Reese part # RP66006 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,700 lb and and overall trailer weight rating of 17,000 lbs. You'd need a shank with this though. For that we have the part # RP54977 which would work well....

    To replace the trailer frame lift brackets for your Reese Weight Distribution System that uses the # RP54970 adjustable shank I recommend the Lift Bracket Kit # RP6637. This replaces both brackets that simply snap up onto the trailer's frame. The bolts, safety clips, and lift handle are also included.
