Hitch Alignment Made Easy

The Swift Hitch camera and monitor make it easy to hook-up your trailer

The Swift Hitch aligner gives you a second pair of eyes so you can quickly align your vehicle's hitch ball with your trailer's coupler. It eliminates trailer hookup headaches like getting in and out of your vehicle, relying on a spotter, and accidental collision. The camera wirelessly transmits video to the hand-held monitor, and both are battery powered - which means no complicated wiring is needed for installation. And the camera's place-and-point design lets you reposition it for each job.


Place the Swift Hitch camera on your tailgate and watch the monitor from your cab as you back-up

Using the system is easy. Attach the camera to your tailgate - the magnetic base makes it simple to place the camera wherever you need it - and point it at your hitch ball. Hop in the driver's seat, and use the monitor to watch your progress as you back up your vehicle. No getting out of the truck to check, no deciphering the hand signals of your significant other, and no running out of patience. Once the hitch ball and coupler are aligned, all that's left to do is hookup and hit the road.


For gooseneck and fifth-wheel trailers, attach the camera to the back of your cab for a helpful look into the bed of your truck as you back up to the trailer.


Not only can the Swift Hitch be used when hitching up, but it is also great for hooking up snowplow blades, for use as a backup camera, and for monitoring a variety of areas around your home, farm, or jobsite.


Night Vision Camera with 4-Hour Battery Life

The camera's 4-hour battery life gives you plenty of time to complete the job. The camera sends images to the monitor from up to 300' away and gives you a targeted, 55-degree viewing angle (horizontal and vertical).


Swift Hitch SH01 night vision camera with 4-hour battery

Seven infrared lights surround the camera lens to provide up to 15' of night vision so you can get the job done in the dark. Night vision automatically activates in dim or dark conditions and turns off when lighting improves. When the camera is using night vision, images are displayed in black and white on the monitor.


Rear view of the Swift Hitch SH01 camera

The back of the camera has an antenna, an on/off button, an LED light, and a jack for the charging cable. The LED light changes color to signal when the camera is on (green), when it's charging while the power is on (yellow), and when it's charging while the power is off (red).


Place-and-Point Design

The Swift Hitch SH01 camera has a magnetic base that attaches to your tailgate

Setting up the camera is as fast as place and point. First, place the camera's strong magnetic base on a metal surface. The magnetic base lets you easily remove and reposition the camera depending on the job - unlike a backup camera that's permanently mounted at the rear of your vehicle. Plus, the base has a smooth, non-scratch nylon backing.


The Swift Hitch SH01 camera has a rotating stem

Next, point the camera at your hitch ball or target. A stem with a rotating ball joint sits between the camera and the magnetic base. The stem smoothly rotates 360 degrees, allowing the camera to be pointed in any direction and hold its position. For some applications, such as monitoring horses inside an enclosed trailer, the camera can be mounted semi-permanently. Pre-drilled holes in the magnetic base let you mount the camera using two 1/8" screws or bolts with wing nuts (not included).


Durable Construction

The Swift Hitch camera is constructed with durability in mind. The body, stem, and base are made of durable, rustproof aluminum, and the exterior has a UV-resistant coat of bright yellow paint.


A clear plastic cap protects the rear of the Swift Hitch SH01 camera from water

A clear plastic cap is included to protect the camera's rear end from rain or other inclement weather, particularly when the lens is pointed at your hitch ball. The cap fits snugly onto the back of the camera. The on/off button can be pressed while the cap is on, but the cap will have to be removed when you want to plug in the charging cable.


Hand-Held Monitor with Full-Color LCD Screen

The Swift Hitch SH01 hand-held monitor

The hand-held monitor features a 2-1/2", high-resolution LCD screen that displays crisp, clear full-color pictures (images appear in black and white while camera is operating in night vision). Video is displayed in mirror image by default to give you the same viewpoint as your rearview mirror, but this setting can be switched to non-mirror image if you prefer. The monitor has a battery life of up to 4 hours when fully charged. It is recommended that the monitor battery be fully charged before first use.


To turn the monitor on or off, hold down the button on the front for 3 - 5 seconds. To switch the display from mirror-image view to non-mirror-image view, press the button quickly. An LED indicator light changes color to signal when the monitor is on (green), when it's charging while the power is on (yellow), and when it's charging while the power is off (red). The light flashes when the unit is in the non-mirror-image setting so you know what perspective you've got on the display.


The included video-out cable plugs into the side of the monitor so that you can transfer images to a larger screen or a recording device.


The Swift Hitch SH01 monitor mounted to a dash

The lightweight, durable plastic unit has a contoured shape so that it is easy to hold in one hand. For dash mounting, two 7/8" hook-and-loop strips (similar to Velcro) with adhesive backing are included. Or you can use the Swift Hitch windshield mount kit (sold separately) to keep the monitor easily within view.


Wireless, Portable System

This portable, completely wireless system is simple to set up and convenient to use. It does not need to be hardwired to your vehicle, nor does it rely on your vehicle's battery to work. Instead, it uses radio frequency to transmit video from the camera to the monitor and it is powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. There's no permanent installation or drilling required, so the system can go anywhere you go - from the jobsite to the campsite, from your work truck to your SUV.


The Swift Hitch SH01 camera, monitor, and included charging cable

The included 12-volt DC cable lets you charge both units simultaneously. An AC-to-DC adapter (sold separately) can be used to charge the system from a 110-volt AC wall outlet.

Video Transcript for Swift Hitch Backup Cameras and Alarms - Hitch Alignment Camera Systems - 04928 Review

Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Swift Hitch wireless hitch alignment camera and monitor. This hitch alignment system makes it easy to back up your tow vehicle to your trailer for hookup. It simplifies lining up the hitch ball with the coupler. It's gonna be perfect for hitching up goosenecks, fifth wheels, and snowplow blades. It can also be used as a backup camera and monitoring device. This is a portable system.

It can mount really wherever you need it to, and it can easily be removed or repositioned. It's gonna have this rotating stem design that really allows the camera to point in nearly any direction, so that's a nice design of the unit. Then the base is a magnet, so that way you can easily stick it to a metal surface. Now again, it is a full wireless system. It's easily transportable from job to job or vehicle or vehicle. It uses radio frequency to transmit images from the camera to the monitor, and no permanent installation or wiring is required, so you don't have to worry about any of that.

Again, fully wireless, really nice design, very easy to use. The unit also features night vision that lets you see up to 15 feet away in the dark. It's gonna feature infrared lights that are built in to the front of the camera. They automatically turn on and off in dark or dim lighting, and it's going to feature this unit right here. This is your handheld monitor. It has a two and a half inch full color high resolution LCD screen.

Mirror image view displays objects as they would appear in a rear view mirror, and you can also mount this to the dash of the vehicle with the included hook and loop strips or fasteners, very similar to Velcro. That's got adhesive backing, so you place one piece on your dash, the other piece on the back of the monitor, and then you can stick it to the dash and use it that way, or you could put it in a cup holder or just put it in your hand and use it that way as well. A very versatile system. I also want to point out that it's going to feature a video out jack as well as the included cable. That lets you transmit images to a recording device. On the other side it's gonna have your charging port.

It's also gonna come with a charging cable, plugs into a 12 volt accessory outlet like a cigarette lighter outlet, and it's got two plugs on the unit. That way you can charge both units at the same time. The connection point for the camera is here at the back. The durable camera is made out of a rust proof aluminum with a UV resistant painted exterior. Nice durable design, it's gonna last a long time. It's gonna look good for a long time. The unit's gonna feature rechargeable lithium ion batteries that power the camera and the monitor. The system works while charging and without being fully charged. Again, it does come with a 12 volt DC charging cable. It's also gonna include two drawstring pouches. These are included for easy storage so when you're not using the unit you can put them in their pouches, and they're gonna stay safe and protected until you're ready to use them again. The unit is FCC certified. It's also gonna come with an additional fuse, a backup fuse. All you gotta do, it does come with one installed here in the plug, but if you unthread this, the fuse is actually located just below that, so if the fuse goes out, they do include a backup. Radio frequency transmission distance is up to 300 feet. The frequency is 2.4 gigahertz. The video out cable, this measures about 56 inches long, and then your 12 volt DC charging cable measures about 37 inches long. A few specs here with the camera and the monitor, and then we'll actually connect the two units and I'll show you how it looks on the monitor. When it comes to the battery, it's gonna have a four hour maximum life when fully charged. It offers a 55 degree viewing angle both horizontal and vertical. When it comes to the overall dimensions of just the camera, the overall length measuring front to back including the antenna, it's gonna be about four and 3/4 of an inch long. The width of just the camera body right here is about one and 1/8 of an inch. The overall height, it's gonna be very close to about three inches tall. The base, just measuring the magnetic portion, that's gonna give us a measurement of about two and 1/4 inches long. Measuring this direction, we're looking at about one and 5/8 of an inch wide. Then it does have two holes right here for mounting, so if you want to do a permanent installation, you can use some self tacking screws or some small hardware. That is gonna be sold separately. It's not included, and you can permanently mount this unit as well. The distance between those holes, center on center, is gonna be one and 9/16 of an inch. When it comes to the monitor, it's also a nice compact design. It's gonna feature a four hour maximum life when fully charged as well. It's going to give us a width measurement of about three and 1/8 of an inch. Going this direction edge to edge, it's gonna measure about five and 1/8 of an inch, and then the thickness is only about an inch and a quarter. The LCD screen measures two and a half inches diagonal, two inches wide by one and 9/16ths of an inch tall, and the resolution is 960 by 240 dpi. When you're ready to use the unit, it's very simple to do. Just hold down the power button until the monitor turns on. Also this green light right here's gonna come on, letting you know that the unit is powered on. Then here on the back of the camera it's going to have a button right here. Push that button down. That green light's gonna come on, letting you know that it has power. The two units automatically pair with one another. I'm gonna bring you in closer, so that way you can see the image really well. You can see there that it pairs automatically, and you can see exactly what I'm looking at. Really nice design. It's very easy to see when you're backing up, it's very easy to see your coupler and your hitch ball, and it's very easy to see when they're aligned and when you're ready to get out and make your connection. We're gonna go ahead and turn off the overhead lights so that way you can see night vision. You can see there, even with the lights off, it's still really easy to see in the monitor, which is a great design of the unit. Then when you're ready to power the system off, all you gotta do is hold down the power button till the unit goes off. Green light will go off, and then here on the back push down on the power button and it's turned off. That's gonna do it for today's look at the Swift Hitch wireless hitch alignment camera and monitor.

Camera and screen work great. I use it use it for hitching up my camer and boat. And i've used for more then just my hitch. It has also been great to use on the back of our 31' camper, when I attach it to my bumper. It only takes a couple of times to get the hang of things. Screen is easy to see and camera has strong magnetic base, with a good field of view. Glad I got it and have recommended it to friends. 398973

I bought this for my husband so he could use it when hooking up the truck to our fifth-wheeler and we both love it! I love it because now he doesn't need me to guide him. He loves it because it works as described. The camera can be placed on any metal surface because of the magnet, and he can angle it whichever way he needs to. He can also use it when backing into camp sites. Originally he said he didn't want one, but I gave it to him for Christmas anyway. He's very happy that I did. The picture on the monitor is clear; we have not had any problems with signal strength or interference. Wireless is definitely convenient! 63373

This is my second Swift Hitch. I not only use the system to hook up but also I am a sound engineer. I use the system to look under stage floors and such to discover how wiring may be done. This unit can see in the dark better than the naked eye. Great piece of gear. Well made and works. 62995


Comments
I still use the Swift Hitch as a valuable tool. The thing is just great for the purpose it was designed as well as many other tasks. The only negative I have is the receiver battery will drain down in about a week if left in the unit even if it is not turned on. I just take the battery out after each use. I now charge the battery every two months even if it is still working.I would recommend the unit and if lost I would replace it with another Swift Hitch.

Swift Hitch: Wow! It's amazing how one product can bring back the joy of boating! I have to push (front hitch) my boat into our backyard because the alley behind the house is very tight. This makes the hook-up so easy AND then I place it on the back of the trailer (now the front-most part) and use it to assist making the turn into the backyard. Could not do it without it!! Snap-On Towing Mirrors: Fit very nicely and secure. Add just the right amount of additional mirror range needed for backing up my pontoon!! Great product!! The best part of this sale was how super helpful the sales representative from etrailer was in helping me find a solution to my concerns!! THANKS VINCE!!! 167995

Just recovering from a neck surgery with a very stiff neck. Swift Hitch portable camera system made it very easy for me to hook up horse trailer this weekend with few moves. However, my truck has blue tooth phone connection. May be this is a reason for the receiver monitor having lines, making it very difficult for me to see anything between cotton balls. I had to hold the monitor out of the window, finding a sweet spot to complete the hitching. It would be nice if charging could be done from 110V outlet. Driving around charging both bateries 2,5 hours ( as suggested ) was not fun. Over all I like this system, it helps. But a larger screen, cleaner-crisper picture and a longer depth of field would have been nicer to have. 62558

It saves me from getting in and out of my truck when hooking my trailer but it takes getting used to because of the angle of the camera. So it makes it a little difficult to line up perfectly underneath the hitch. Also the camera and or screen picks up electrical interference, possibly from the ignition of the vehicle, so the screen isn't clear until you position the screen in a way where the interference seems to subside. So you have to wait a lot for the interference to lessen to see clearly to back up. It will scratch your paint when attaching and removing the camera but if you put a slim piece of paper under the mount like I do you can avoid the scratches. 485503

I would like to say your product is great does just what I need. The company I work for pulls campers to natural gas well sites to act as mobile offices and sleeping quarters in remote areas.I do not have the time to get out of the truck 20 times to see if I'm lined up with a trailer to hook up. The night vision is great to because alot of times it is very dark on a site where the trailers are parked and I can go in the dead of night not worrying about how to hook up in the dark. Thank you very much for this product and a great customer service staff!!! 62637

Bought the Swift Hitch Camera System because the price was very good. I have seen some other systems and they did not have the night vision or you needed to upload an app to use your smart phone to me was not that smart or the price was way too much for what we needed it for. It's works great! No more yelling back and forth with my wife to make sure that I am lined up right for the hitch. And it works great for when we get to the campsite. I just mount it on the bumper of my camper and back it right in on the site right where I want to put it. I have already showed it to a few camping friends who are going to get one too! 185218

I am hooking up trailers often, so I get a lot of use out of my Swift Hitch Alignment Camera & Monitor. I have purchased a couple of these outfits for my neighbors as well and they really like them. It works really great, no jumping in & out of my truck to see if I'm lined up, so it saves a lot of time. I definitely recommend the Swift Hitch Alignment Camera & Monitor to anyone who uses trailers. Thanks 597778

The pros: Has worked flawlessly since purchased. Very useful and made a nuisance chore connecting to my trailers quite easy once you visually gaged the depth of the hitch ball in relation to the trailer tongue a few times. Nice product. Good picture day or night. The cons: A little pricey. I'm thinking most people wouldn't shell out this kind of money. Camera magnet could be stronger but works. In a nutshell....good job and would recommend to my friends and have. 571415

After installing a tool box in my pickup bed, I could no longer see my goose neck hitch. It works perfect for that now and in 1-2 moves I am exactly where I need to be. It also is working for my bumper hookup and will soon use it on my tractor to help connect a hitch on my loader. It is becoming a VERY useful tool for us. 461005

Ask the Experts about this Swift Hitch Backup Cameras and Alarms

  • Backup Camera that Can Mount in Truck Bed Under Camper Shell
    Our backup cameras were designed to be on the outside of a vehicle exposed to the weather so they'd easily handle being mounted on the inside of a truck camper shell. For that the Rear View Safety Backup Camera part # RVS-155W would be a great option. It's wireless so you wouldn't have to come up with a way to get the camera signal from the truck bed to the truck cab. It comes with a 5 inch monitor that normally attaches to a windshield.

    Both the camera and the monitor in the Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Alignment Camera and Monitor System # 04928 have internal rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. Both the camera and monitor units require an initial charge of 2 and 2-1/2 hours respectively. It is possible that your charging cable is damaged.

  • Which Back Up Camera Works Best for Hitch Alignment
    You could go with something like the Swift Hitch Trailer Hitch Aligner Portable Wireless Camera System with Night Vision # 04928 which has more maneuverability and you can point it directly at your trailer ball. The down side is that this unit uses rechargeable batteries and sticks out considering its size and color.

  • Recommend Backup Camera for Truck and 45 Ft Enclosed Trailer
    I recommend going with a camera that has a longer range like the Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera with Night Vision, part # 04928. The Swift Hitch Camera has a transmission distance of up to 300 feet if there are no obstructions. Part # 04928 also has a night vision feature that will come in handy when backing up at night. The other great part about part # 04928 is that the monitor plugs into a 12 volt outlet in the cab of your truck and has a wireless signal.

  • Swift Hitch Camera Battery Replacement
    According to my contacts at Swift Hitch, the battery in the camera portion of the Swift Hitch System # 04928 is replaceable. However this is not just a normal battery swap out, the battery in the camera is soldered in place. So for replacement you would have to remove the existing battery and solder the new one in place. If you do not feel comfortable with this, Swift Hitch will replace the battery for you if you will send them your camera. Once the 4 screws are removed you should...

  • Troubleshooting Swift Hitch Camera Where Reception Has Gotten Worse Over Time
    The reception shouldn't be fading with time on the Swift Hitch which leads me to believe the TPMS you have could possibly be interfering. You could try disconnecting them to see if the signal changes, but either way moving the camera up higher should improve the reception so I would try that first?

  • What Back-Up Camera Can be Used with a 32 Foot Travel Trailer
    At that trailer length, I recommend the Swift Hitch Camera, part # 04928. It will transmit up to 300 ft. with no obstructions. I would mount it towards the top of the trailer to get better signal transmission. The camera and monitor have built-in batteries and the kit includes a charger that will charge both from your cigarette lighter port.

  • Back Up Camera Options for Backing Boat Trailer
    Wireless back up cameras are designed to withstand the the elements when installed on the license plate frame of a passenger vehicle, but they're not capable of being submerged. Repeated immersion in water will eventually damage the camera. I recommend going with a completely wireless option like the Swift Hitch system, part # 04928. The wireless camera can be magnetically mounted to a dry location on the trailer. The camera even has an infrared function that allows night vision.

  • Can I use a Larger Video Display for the Swift Hitch Wireless Backup Camera System # 04928
    Yes, you can use the video out cable from the Swift Hitch Wireless Camera System, # 04928, to use a larger video display. I tested this on an 80 inch LED TV at our offices here and it will work. The resolution does not improve, but the video quality is still very good. As long as your 12 volt DVD monitor has the RCA video input, then this will work. Since you also plan on using this on a skid-steer, I recommend mounting the camera as high above the engine compartment as possible and...

  • Backup Camera Recommendation to See Behind 5th Wheel Trailer
    The Swift Hitch camera, # 04928, would work but you would want to mount it at the top rear of the 5th wheel trailer in order to receive and maintain a signal. The problem with that is you have to manually turn the camera on so having it up high would make doing so difficult. I recommend version # SH03D which is a 2 camera system but it comes with an antenna so that the signal will be stronger to the in-cab monitor. That way you can mount the camera in an easy to reach place and not worry...

  • Backup Camera Recommendation for a 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500 with Camper In Bed
    You could use a magnetic mount camera such as # RVS-83112 placed on the hitch or ball mount if you wanted to. Otherwise you could use a license plate frame style camera such as # HM60195VA. A magnetic style is great if you have more than one vehicle you want to use it on. The license plate camera has the benefit of being a hardwire installation instead of wireless so there is little to no chance of interference.

  • Battery Replacement Installation On Swift Hitch Wireless Camera
    For the Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Alignment Camera and Monitor - Night Vision - 4-Hour Camera Battery # 04928, the replacement battery is # PB02. To replace the battery, there are screws on the bottom of the camera housing that will allow you to remove the camera and the battery. You will need to unsolder the wires and remove the old battery and then resolder the new battery wires. These are small wires, so you will need to have some skill for this part of the installation.

  • Is the Swift Hitch Trailer Hitch Aligner Portable Wireless Camera System Waterproof
    The camera in the Swift Hitch, # 04928, is weather resistant but the camera is not completely sealed so it cannot be considered waterproof. For something to be considered waterproof it would have to be able to be submerged under water for a certain amount of time and still function. For rainy weather, though, the camera will work but I do recommend that once you are done using it, place the camera where it is out of the rain. I have included a couple of videos of this system for you.

This is a water-resistant camera but it is not waterproof. You would need to remove the camera from the back of your trailer each time you plan on backing the trailer into the water.

  • What is the Life Expectancy of the Battery in the Swift Hitch Wireless Backup Camera 04928
    I checked into this with the manufacturer, and the battery in the camera portion of the # 04298 wireless backup camera system is actually replaceable. The battery is sealed inside the camera, but can be accessed. The new battery would need to be soldered into the assembly, so it is a bit more tricky to replace than the battery in the monitor but it is doable. When I asked about the lifespan of the battery, my contact at Swift Hitch said that although they have on occasion had to replace...

You may try a different port on your vehicle for charging it to see if that prevents the fuse from blowing.

    Wireless backup camera systems like the Swift Hitch # 04928 can offer easier installation than wired systems such as the Hopkins Smart Hitch # HM50002. But any wireless device can potentially interfere with other similar items such as a tire pressure monitor.
