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 Premier 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 Pivot, Cushioned Hitch 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

The Hijacker Premier Series hitch is designed to attach to universal above-bed base rails (sold separately). The hitch will fit most industry-standard rails, including those from B&W, Curt, Demco, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley. 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 fit into your above-bed 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 included safety pins.

Video Transcript for Demco Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - DM6076P-21K Review

Today we're going to review part number BM6076P-21K. This is the Demco hijacker premier series 21,000 pound double-pivot 5th-wheel hitch. Now this 5th-wheel hitch is designed to mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your 5th-wheel trailer. It uses this double-pivot head meaning it goes front to back. It also moves side to side. That's a little bit harder to show just because it does require some weight on the hitch head so the side-to-side movement you would be able to see but because of this double-pivot head, it does make coupling and coupling of your trailer very easy.

They use these polyurethane bushings that are right here under the hitch head on the saddle. That helps eliminate the side-to-side movement when your trailer's uncoupled. It will help cushion the pivot action when your trailer is coupled. Now in the head it does use this wraparound jaw which will fully wrap around the king pin. It has a locking bar in front. It gives you a smoother, safer, more secure ride.

Now when you do put this together, your cross-member here or saddle as they call it, on each end has rows of holes. The reason they do that is they offer you 4 vertical hitch-height adjustments to fit your application. In other words, you want to make sure you get the correct hitch height. Hitch height is measured from your truck bed to the top of your hitch head. You want that to be correct for your application because you want your truck and trailer to be level to help provide a safe and smooth towing experience. The choices it gives you, it ranges anywhere from the low is 16 inches hitch-height up to 19 inches in hitch-height.

This is made of a sturdy steel construction. It has corrosion-resistant black powder coat finish on it to protect it. Now this does require base rails and an installation kit to install this in your vehicle. We do sell those separately. What I would recommend is go to our website, use our thick guide, put in your year and model vehicle. It will show you the correct base rails and installation kit to use on this.

Now what I would recommend also is if they do offer a custom or semi-custom bracket kit, I would recommend to use those because they will make the installation much easier compared to just a universal fit. Now these side rails with the tabs on them will work with industry-standard above-bed rails that are made by BMW inaudible 00:02:13 draw-type, hidden-hitch Husky Reeser Valley. If you have either one of those in your truck, it would fit into those. You can see I put the 4 pins and clips out there. It comes with those. Those are used to when you drop these into your rails, you run it through the rail and the hold in the tab here to help keep the hitch attached to the rails. This part is made in the USA. A few specs on it, the gross towing weight capacity is 21,000 pounds. Vertical load limit or pin-weight capacity is 5,250 pounds. Again, I mentioned your hitch-height adjustments will go anywhere from 16 inches at the lower up to 19 inches at highest. Now I do want to show you how this wrap-around jaw works. Basically what you would do is pop off your pin and clip which will release your handle. Your handle, all you have to do is pull out all the way. When you do that, it will lock in the open position. The jaw's open, ready to be coupled. For demonstration purposes, I want to show you here's a 2-inch-diameter king pin. This king pin would be what would be on the bottom of your pin box. When you're moving your pin box into the hitch head with the king pin just to show you how this operates, it would slide in. Once you get far enough, you can see that wrap-around jaw will lock the pin into place. Then the locking bar also slides across to keep it secure. Then when you're ready you just take your pinning clip. You're all hooked up. Drop your pinning clip in through the whole. Put the clip on. That keeps the handle from moving in or out but that should do it for the review on part number BM6076P-21K. This is the Demco hijacker premier series 21,000 pound double-pivot 5th-wheel hitch. .

Great hitch, easy to assemble. There was a delay of about a week due to not being in stock, but representative called me and informed me about delay and wanted to know if I wanted to swap my oder to one in stock. Great company! 482561

As always, great service from etrailer. Great prices, fast shipping. As far as the product...Let me start by saying that Demco make absolutely first rate hitches. My only (constructive) criticism might be that their quality control might not be quite up to snuff. This is the second Demco hitch I've purchased, the first being a 21K Autoslide hitch. Again...fantastic product but upon arrival one of the four tabs that drop into the bed rails was welded on upside down. Demco replaced the part, no questions asked, terrific customer service. This 21K double pivot hitch arrived yesterday and went together well except one of the tabs wasn't welded perfectly squarely which made it extremely difficult to get it to drop into the existing bedrails (which worked perfectly for the prior Demco hitch). Managed to get it in...getting it out...well, that may be a bit of a challenge. Wouldn't stop me from purchasing another Demco product though. 411739

Review from a similar Demco Hijacker Premier Series in Fifth Wheel


Ordered this hitch 3 day shipping on Monday around noon and received Wednesday afternoon. Packaging had taken a beating, but no damage to hitch, and all parts where there. Assembled hitch piece by piece in the bed of my Ram 2500 short bed. Went together like clockwork. Took be about 2 hours, taking my time because it was 93 degrees in my garage. Picked up new 34 foot fifth wheel RV that Saturday. Hitch locked on to pin with a reassuring solid lock sound and towed well. Very happy with eTrailer and Demco. 287343


Comments
Overall happy with the hitch. My one complaint would be that if the king pin does not go into the latch just right, it will not latch. It sometimes takes 3 or four attempts to hit at the Just the right angle, not large movements, Usually just have to pull forward, turn the wheels a bit and back into it again. This doesnt occur on every hitch up, but happens more than I care for.

I ordered this hitch for my 2018 Titan XD. Very well made hitch. This install does take about 2 hours if you are assembling it by yourself. The parts are heavy as due expected for such a solid hitch. I did find that installing the base plate to the factory gooseneck hitch with a drop in bed liner does require removing all the shims from underneath the plate. If possible, assemble this hitch in the bed of the truck. The parts assembled complete makes for a very heavy hitch to put in the bed by yourself. I had to due to storms the night I assembled it. Due to shipping damage, I had to get replacement parts sent to me but Lori was very fast to get them to me. I pull a 13.5K trailer and it worked flawlessly. I am very, very pleased with the finished product as well as the excellent customer service from etrailer. You will NOT be disappointed. 677944

Wow, new 2019.5 Ram 1500 works perfect..connected to Artic Wolf 285RL 3 slides 8,500 loaded.. turns up to 70degrees don,t need slide w the artic wolf. The installation was long..did it myself. Bracket bolts directly above frame was testy.. Had to grind a little off drivers rear bracket to fit. It was overall a tight fit but from an engineers point of view...small 5.7 bed there wasn't much room or choice. Tammy it was a pleasure working with you.

Ask the Experts about this Demco Fifth Wheel

  • Will the Demco HiJacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch have Less Chucking Compared to a Curt Q20
    The jaw system on the Demco HiJacker 5th wheel trailer hitch # DM6076P-21K is very secure and one of the better designs available. The single latch jaw surrounds the king pin well and it also has a slide bar for added security. The hitch isn't cushioned like the Curt hitch you have though. I have included a link to a video review of this hitch for you. The new Curt design on the A20, # C16140, is an improvement over the one you have now and offers better king pin contact.

There is not a Curt 5th wheel hitch taller than this. For a taller hitch to give you the height you need, I recommend the Demco Hijacker Premier Series Double Pivot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - 21K # DM6076P-21K.

  • How to Fix Chucking and Jarring With 5th Wheel Hitch
    What you were experience is what is known as chucking. This is not something unusual and it can be caused by your 5th wheel jaw(s) not being very snug around the king pin, and/or the head of your 5th wheel does not move or pivot very much. When you hit a bump in the road, there is just enough wiggle room for the king pin to move since the trailer is moving differently than the truck for those few seconds. Another possibility that you will want to check is the Tongue Weight. The Tongue Weight...

If you are looking for the best in general then I recommend the Demco Hijacker # DM6076P-21K (or part # DM8550035 for a short bed truck) which has a 21,000 lb weight capacity.

  • Compatibility of Reese Revolution 5th Wheel Pin Box with Demco Hijacker Autoslide Hitch DM6076P-21K
    It is not recommended to simultaneously use both an auto-sliding sliding 5th wheel hitch and a pivoting 5th wheel pin box like the Reese Revolution. The reason is that doing so will create two pivot points which is dangerous. A standard sliding hitch can be used along with a Revolution or Sidewinder pin box so long as the hitch remains locked in its forward position at all times. Since the Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM6076P-21K is an automatic slider type it is not the...

  • Is Head of Demco Hijacker Hitch Easy to Remove for Lightening Up Hitch Removal
    The head of the Hijacker hitches by Demco like part # DM6076P-21K are pretty easy to remove. When the Demco rep came here to show us these hitches we went out and watched him install and remove the head of a Hijacker to allow the hitch to easily get removed from the rails. The head weighs right at 65 lbs and the hitch weighs 140 lbs total so removing the head will make the process much easier.

To start, the B&W doesn't require a rail system # DM6099 like the Demco- it will mount directly into the factory puck system on your 2019 Ram 3500.
