Pull-Pin Adjustment for Short Bed Trucks

Pull-Pin Adjustment

When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, for slow speed turns you can reposition the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle to create enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.


To position the SL Series hitch to execute a turn, first uncouple your trailer. Once uncoupled, you can release the 4 spring-loaded pull pins that secure the hitch to the SL base rails (sold separately) and turn them 90 degrees to lock them in the up position. Then manually push or pull the hitch to the desired location either 4" forward or 4" backward from the center. Turn the pull pins back 90 degrees to release them so that they can engage in the holes of the base rails. After the pins lock into place you can hook your trailer back up to the Hijacker and make your turn. Remember to move the hitch back to the towing position once the turn is complete. Never tow with the hitch positioned past the rear axle of your truck.


Secure Wraparound Jaw with Locking Bar

Wraparound Jaw

The single-piece, strong wraparound jaw completely surrounds your trailer's king pin for 360 degrees of contact. This wraparound jaw provides a more secure connection than standard 2-piece jaws that close in on the king pin from the sides. The increased jaw-to-king-pin contact on the SL Series hitch offers tighter tolerances around the king pin, which minimizes both rattle and chucking, for a smooth, quiet ride.


A 3/4" thick solid steel locking bar spans the area in front of the jaw. This bar provides an added barrier of protection against accidental disconnection so you can have peace of mind that your trailer is secure. The locking bar is attached to the jaw and to the spring-loaded handle. The bar automatically locks when the jaw closes around your king pin.


Double-Pivot, Cushioned Hitch Head

Double Pivoting Head

The double pivoting, cushioned head improves your towing experience dramatically by helping to reduce jarring and unwanted noise. Built-in pins allow the hitch head to pivot back and forth and side to side. And hookup is easy because the hitch head will automatically pivot to the proper angle when it comes into contact with your pin box.


Dampeners

Three polyurethane dampeners help to cushion the movement from the pivoting head and to reduce towing noise. Two of these dampeners are built into the head assembly to cushion the head's side-to-side pivoting. The third dampener cushions the back-and-forth motion and must be installed in the hitch prior to use. Installation of this third dampener is easy - simply press the dampener up into the pre-drilled hole underneath the hitch head.


Easy Installation

This hitch is designed to attach to Demco SL Series above-bed rails (sold separately). To assemble the hitch, all you have to do is bolt on the side plates and attach the head to the hitch base.


The side plates have 2 functions. They contain the feet that pin into the SL rails, and they allow you to raise or lower the hitch head to better match your pin box height. After you choose your desired height setting, simply bolt the side plates to the hitch base with the included hardware. Then attach the base to the rails with the pull pins.

I’m a repeat customer, I had the hijacker in my old truck and let it go when I sold the truck. When we bought our next Fifth wheel, I contacted etrailer because I wanted another Hijacker, this one is the 21000 model, easy to order, quick delivery and a superior Fifthwheel coupler, thank you etrailer

Review from a similar Hijacker SL Series in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I built a custom flatbed for my 2002 f250 and needed a fifth wheel hitch that is low profile to get my toy hauler level. This hitch was perfect for the job! I am pleased with its locking mechanism and there is no bucking or slap while on the highway. It allows me to unhitch at a ridiculous angle if needed! I just purchased a new 2019 F350 Dually and will absolutely buy a new Demco for that truck as well!

Review from a similar Hijacker SL Series in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I was impressed by the customer service staff at Etrailer. Diana helped me with my order and went out of her way to price matched the competition, with free shipping. The 5th wheel hitch they sent me was what I wanted and shipping was amazingly fast(I ordered on a Tuesday and had everything by Friday). I am not usually one to write reviews but they deserve two thumbs up and an excellent review from me. I will emphasize that they have excellent customer service and I will definitely do business with these guys in the future. Thank you etrailer!!

Review from a similar Hijacker SL Series in Fifth Wheel Hitch


AWESOME! I came to etrailer because I needed a "low profile" 5th wheel hitch. I scrubbed the internet and the closest I came to was a 18" rise. I found just what I needed made by Demco. The price was a little suspect considering even here the price was at least $250 cheaper than anything else on the eTrailer page. I live in Iowa and see Demco grain trailers all over the place and figured farmers don't generally buy the cheapest so what the heck. Before I pressed the "Pay" button I looked at the Demco website, saw they were located in Iowa and gave them a call. I talked with a rep. who said the company bought the hitch line a few years ago from a Canadian company and that they were selling well. When I told them the price from etrailer he said "Buy, you won't find it cheaper at any of our distributors" So back to the "Pay" button. Then it got weird. Later that day a young lady called me from etrailer to inform me that the item was "out of stock" and did I want to wait, choose something else or get my $ back. I told her that I couldn't beat their deal so I said I'll wait, she said "OK it should ship in two-three weeks". I told her don't ship anything until you can ship the hitch and the rails. Next morning, I got an email, "Your order has shipped" Wait what . . . ? At that point I jump on the phone and called etrailer's 800 number. Another rep says "can I help you?" I said how do you bend time? she pulled up my order and says "Oh I see what happened, another person had ordered the same hitch and also told them not to ship an incomplete order also" This guy was waiting for something to be completed in June and they reordered the hitch and he would get his whole order also. Cool huh? I love that kind of flexibility in business. Lastly shipping. My product probably came in at 130+ pounds. Everyone else wanted more than $100.00 for shipping, mine was FREE. I would say I saved about $300.00 by buying at etrailer. With a great money back policy you really don't have anything to lose. Jeff Hauser.

The hitch works great. I use it to pull a 17500 Lb. 5th wheel. It was easy to install and when I need to use my truck to haul something else the hitch is every easy to remove.

Great hitch, just used it for our first outing and everything pulled like a dream. More than that e-trailer was great to order from. The product was sent out quickly with tracking number attached, my hitch showed up earlier that expected. I will order from these guys again!

Order the hitch on Saturday night and all 4 packages arrived right on time Thursday afternoon. I felt this hitch was a good compromise between cost and function. I was looking for a sliding hitch that had a clean look but couldn't justify the auto sliding ones. This hitch fit the bill perfectly.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for Parallel Base Rails on 1996 Chevy K2500
    The Demco Hijacker SL Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM6076SL-21K that you referenced does use similar parallel-running base rails to what you currently have with the older RBW units, however it's specifically designed to only fit the Demco model SL Series Base Rails. There isn't a 5th wheel hitch available anymore that will fit your RBW rails. This means in order to use the hitch you will have to replace your rails with the Demco SL Series # DM8553009-12, which includes custom brackets...

The only thing to keep in mind is that a 5th wheel hitch will not fit your truck if it has a Flareside or Stepside bed. Otherwise, you're all set, and you can choose from the 21,000 lb or 16,000 lb Hijacker SL. The exact hitch and rails you will need for your 1995...

This isn't very practical and new hardware would need to be used every single time either hitch is installed.
