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" back or 8" back toward your truck's tailgate. 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. Then attach the base to the rails with the pull pins.

Video Transcript for Demco RV Fifth Wheel DM6076SL-FLAT Review

Today we're going to review part #DM6076SL-FLAT. This is the Demco High Jacker SL Series 21,000 pound flat deck double pivot slider fifth wheel hitch. This fifth wheel hitch is designed to mount into your truck bed so you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It is a slider design and it is designed for short bed trucks to give you that additional clearance between the trucks cab and the trailer during turning maneuvers. This high jacker SL series fifth wheel will allow you to move your hitch back towards the tail gate of your truck into increments of four inches each so, a total of eight inches, if needed. That's how you'll gain that extra clearance between your truck cab and your trailer. This is designed to be installed on SL base rails and a custom install kit which we do sell those items separately on our website. What I would recommend is go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show you the correct part numbers for the SL base rails and the custom install kit that would be used with this. The base rails are a different design than your normal base rails.

They will have a groove in it that this tab on each side will slide back and forth in and, then these pins would lock it into different holes at the different positions. This hitch does use a double pivot head. It makes coupling and uncoupling your trailer very easy. The double pivot means it goes front to back and it also goes side to side. It's hard to show the side to side because, it really needs the weight of the trailer on it. The reason that is underneath here they use polyurethane bumpers underneath the hitch head and that helps eliminate the side to side movement when it's uncoupled, when the trailer is not couple but, when you couple it and the weight's on there it will help cushion the pivot action with those bumpers. This does use a wrap-around jaw which will fully wrap around the king pin to hold it into place.

It also has a nice locking bar in front and those features give it a nice, smooth, safe, secure ride. It is as you can see a very low profile design. It's made with a sturdy steel construction. It has a nice corrosion resistant black powder coat finish. A few specs on this. The gross towing weight capacity is 21,000 pounds.

The vertical low limit or pin weight capacity is 5,250 pounds, and the hitch height which is measured from your truck bed to the top of the hitch head is 9 inches. Again, I mentioned the travel when you put it on the SL base rails will give you an 8 inch forward to aft movement, front to back. This part is made in the USA. One thing I want to mention to you when you do install this on your SL rails to slide it you do have to uncouple the trailer from the hitch. Pull your truck ahead far enough to move the hitch away, or to be able to move the hitch, then get up in your truck bed. You un-clip these four clips right on here.

Pull up on these pins. Let me see if I can show you on one of them. When you pull the clip off that'll allow you to pull up on this pin and rotate it. Holds it in the open position. You do that on all four. Then with it like that you'll be able to slide the hitch into your SL rails and then when you drop these down. When you slide it there's holes, they're spring loaded, so they'll fall into those holes and lock it into place. Once it gets locked into place at what position you need it at then you would just put your clip back it and that'll lock that pin from moving. Then, what you'll need to do is once you get it where you need it you back into the back of the truck and then re-couple your trailer. Your trailer is now at the positions needed to maneuver into position to give you the sufficient cab clearance. The thing I do want to mention is you want to make sure you never try to slide the hitch on the SL base rails while it's couple to the trailer. The SL series does require that you un-couple the trailer from the hitch to move it on the rails. The last thing I want to show you is this wrap around jaw which is a very nice feature. Basically, when you go to hook up you just pull your pin and clip out and it releases your handle. Just pull your handle all the way out. Once you've got it all the way out it'll hold into the open position. Your jaws open ready to couple to your trailer. I've got an example here of a king pin. This is what will be at the bottom of your pin box. It is a 2 inch diameter king pin. When you're backing up your pin box and king pin is sliding into the hitch head, you can see once it gets in far enough it releases that wrap around jaw, goes around the king pin to hold it in to place, and the locking bar also slides across to secure it. That means you're all ready to go. Last thing you need to do is just take your pin and clip put it into the hole where the handle is. Put the clip on it and that locks the handle from moving and you're all ready to go. That should do it for the review of part #DM6076SL-FLAT. This is the Demco High Jacker SL series 21,000 pound flat deck double pivot slider 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. 378437

Review from a similar Demco RV Hijacker SL Series in Fifth Wheel


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! 253975
