Built-In Slider

Built-In Slider

Most often used on trucks with 6-1/2' beds, a slider helps to eliminate clearance problems during slow-speed turns. When you are towing a fifth-wheel trailer, your hitch must be situated on the cab side of your truck's rear axle. However, at slow speeds you can use a slider to slide the fifth-wheel hitch (and the trailer) toward your truck's tailgate and past the rear axle, creating enough space between the cab of your truck and the trailer to permit less-restricted turning.

The spring-loaded handle on the Premier Series slider hitch allows for simple operation. To activate the slider, manually release the handle so that the trailer hitch is able to slide toward your truck's tailgate as you turn. Once you have completed the turn, pull the spring-loaded handle out and pivot it to the right. Slowly reverse your vehicle at this point and the hitch will latch back into its original towing position. Always make sure your hitch locks back into place before you tow.

The heavy-duty, non-binding steel rollers in the Ultra Slide allow for smooth operation as the hitch moves from the towing position to the turning position and back again. Because this hitch won't bind up the way that some other hitches do, you will get a hassle-free towing experience.

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 Ultra Slide 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.


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 Ultra Slide hitch is designed to attach to universal above-bed base rails (sold separately). The hitch will fit most industry-standard above-bed 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 slider 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 slider base with the included hardware. Then attach the base to the rails with the included safety pins.

Video Transcript for Demco Fifth Wheel - Sliding Fifth Wheel - DM6076P-UL-16K Review

Today we are going to review part number DM6076P-UL-16K. This is the Demco Hijacker Premier series: 16,000 pound, double pivot, ultra slide, fifth wheel hitch. This fifth wheel hitch is designed to mount in your truck bed so that you can tow your fifth wheel trailer. It has the built in slider right here, and this will provide your clearance required for your short bed truck to turn safely at slow speeds. It does use a double pivot head. The double pivot means it goes front to back and side to side, and makes coupling and uncoupling very easy. To show you the side to side movement is hard to do because it does require weight to be on the hitch head, and then you can see it would move side to side. It does have the polyurethane bumpers underneath the hitch head here.

This will help eliminate that side to side movement when it's uncoupled, and it will cushion the pivot action when it is coupled. It does use a wrap around jaw, right up here on the hitch head. It will totally wrap around the king pin. In front of that it has a locking bar for a smoother, safer, more secure ride. When you mount the cross member to the side rails here, it gives you a choice of four vertical height adjustments. That's to fit your application to help you level your truck and trailer to provide a safe and smooth towing experience. It gives you anywhere from a 16 inch hitch height adjustment at the lowest, all the way up to a 19 inch.

Your hitch height is measured from your truck bed to the top of the hitch head. This hitch is a sturdy steel construction. It has a nice black corrosion resistant powder coat finish. It does require bases rails for these to drop into. The base rails and the installation kit we do sell separately. They are listed on our website.

What we would recommend to do is go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you the base rails and installation kit that will work for your application. I would recommend to make the installation easier if it does list a custom or a semi custom bracket kit. We do recommend to do that. It is also compatible with industry standard above bed rails by B&W, CURT, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese and Valley. This part is made in the USA. A few specs on it: The gross towing weight capacity is 16,000 pounds; the vertical load limit, or pin weight capacity is 4,000 pounds; the hitch height adjustment will go from 16 inches up to 19 inches; and the travel of the slider is eight inches front to back. I'm going to show you how that operates here.

Basically what you do right now, it is locked into the towing position, so if you want to go into the maneuvering position you just pull off the lynch pin right here. Your handle is a spring loaded handle, just pull out, rotate it until the pin goes into the other hole, and that releases it and will allow your whole unit to slide. You'll see once you get the full 8 inches the pin will lock into place and it's in the maneuvering position. When you're done maneuvering and you want to uncouple, just go out and pull the spring loaded handle, rotate it back to the other hole. Then what will happen is you go forward, and you'll see that it will lock into the towing position. Then just put your lynch pin back through there to lock that into place. If you see these pins and clips, they do come with this. They're made to, once you drop these tabs into your rails, it comes with the pins and clips to lock them into place. Now I'm going to show you how the hitch head operates. To hook up your trailer you just pull this pin and clip out. That releases your handle. You can pull your handle all the way out. When you do that it will lock into the opener and ready to couple position. With it like that, for demonstration purposes I've got an example of a two inch diameter king pin. This is what would be on your pin box. So, when your pin box slides into the hitch head . you can see once it gets all the way in there that wrap around jaw will go completely around the king pin and the locking bar in front of it. Then all you have to do is go ahead is put your pin and clip back in the handle. Put it through the hole. Put the clip in, that locks the handle from moving. And you're all ready to go. That should do it for the review on part number DM6076P-UL-16K. The Demco Hijacker Premier Series. 16,000 pound, double pivot, ultra slide, fifth wheel hitch. .

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

Hitch showed up in 2 days. Awesome customer service!! Boxes came beat up (not etrailers doings) typical of UPS lately. Installed in about 1 hr and is built like a tank. Going to be using hitch in the next couple days and looking forward to seeing this thing in operation!! Thank you etrailer for selling quality!!!! 483508

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

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.

Review from a similar Demco Hijacker Premier Series in Fifth Wheel

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

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.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for 2016 Nissan Titan XD to Tow 2018 Forest River Sabre 5th Wheel
    The Forest River Sabre series of 5th wheel trailers ranges in unloaded weight from about 8600-lbs to about 12,500-lbs so I recommend at least an 18K-rated hitch so that once your trailer is fully loaded you will still have a good safety margin with your 2016 Nissan Titan XD. Since your 2016 Nissan Titan XD truck is a short bed, you will need a sliding type 5th wheel hitch to ensure enough turning clearance when you're making tight near-90-degree turns.

  • Install Kit for Demco HiJacker Ultra Slider 5th Wheel Hitch and 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually
    There are a few different HiJacker 5th wheel hitches that use Ultra in their name. All of them fit in industry standard above the bed rails. For an installation kit for your 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 you have some options. If your truck has 4 wheel drive you can use installation kit # DM8552016-71 or # DM8552015-71. The difference is that # DM8552015-71 requires more drilling. If your truck is a 2 wheel drive model use # DM8552017-71.

    Thank you for your photo. My Demco contact confirmed that they no longer have installation bracket kits for your older SL-16 hitch model FWH34 to let you install it in your 2013 Ram 2500 with 6-1/2-foot bed. However, we can help you with a new slider hitch and new rail kit. All hitches and install kits for your truck appear on the linked page. For a Demco hitch with 8-inches of travel and an above-bed rail kit you could use hitch # DM6076P-UL-16K along with base rail kit # DM8552015-71....

  • Demco 5th Wheel Installation Kits for 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500
    If your 2005 Silverado 2500 is a 6-1/2 foot bed you can use Demco 5th wheel universal installation kit # DM8552009-71 if you have the Premier Series 16K hitch # DM6076P-UL-16K, or custom install kit # DM8553004-12 if you have the Hijacker SL Series hitch # DM6076SL-16K. The part # DM8553004 that you referenced is just the frame brackets for the SL. If your Silverado 2500 is a long bed use either universal install kit # DM8552009-71 or for a shorter install time the custom install kit...

  • Base Rails for 2015 Ford F-150 With 5 Foot 6 Inch Bed to Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer
    The best option for base rails for your 2015 Ford F-150 is a custom install kit, the Reese Quick-Install Custom Outboard Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # RP56034-53 because it does not require any drilling into your truck's frame to install; a universal kit such as the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit # RP30035-31 does require drilling. I have added a link to a video of the custom kit being installed on a F-150 for you to check out. This will allow you to use the Demco...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 3500 Short Bed with Rail Kit
    If your trailer never required the slider of your Demco Hijacker part # DM6076P-UL-16K to be slid back and your truck had a 6-1/2 foot bed then your new truck with the same bed length wouldn't require it either. But the 2017 Ram 3500 short bed is about 6 inches shorter so clearance may be an issue. For short bed towing a Sidewinder pin box is the best option anyway. The B and W Companion part # BWRVK3600 would be a great option with a Sidewinder. You would need the wedge part # SWW-06. Sidewinders...

  • Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch That Allows Use of Lowest Height Setting
    The hitch height limitation when using a sliding type hitch is common to almost all 5th wheels. The sliding mechanism blocks access to the lowest height setting. There is no fix for your Reese R16 slider to enable you to use the lowest height setting. However, the Demco Hijacker Premier Series 16K Slider # DM6076P-UL-16K fits into industry-standard above-bed base rails and does allow you to use all of its height settings, 16-, 17-, 18- and 19-inches.

  • Dimensions of Demco Replacement Slider Rails for Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel DM5999
    The Demco Replacement Slider Rails # DM5999 are specifically intended for two of their Hijacker hitches, DM6076P-UL-16K (8550026) and DM6076P-UL-21K (8550028) but I did go to our warehouse to measure these rails for you. Please refer to the photo I prepared for you which shows the primary dimensions of one rail.

  • Recommendation for Lighter 5th-Wheel Sliding Hitch for 2016 GMC Sierra with Factory Rail Kit
    The B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3770 referenced in your question is the only hitch model currently available that will mount directly to the factory rail kit on your 2016 Sierra 3500. This is an excellent sliding hitch that will mount directly to the factory pucks in the truck bed and give you 12 inches of travel front to back. Also note that the head of the Companion can be removed to help with installation and removal of the hitch. The head itself weighs only 74 pounds. The...

  • Will Curt Universal 5th Wheel Install Kit Fit 2002 GMC Sierra 1500LD and Demco HiJacker Ultra Slide
    Yes, the Curt universal 5th wheel installation kit # C16100 will fit your 2002 GMC Sierra 1500LD and it will accept your Demco HiJacker hitch provided it is a model that fits in above the bed industry standard rails. It will not fit the rails if it is the SL series. So if your hitch is # DM6076P-UL-16K or # DM6076P-UL-21K (or any other model for above the bed industry standard rails) it will fit the Curt installation kit.

  • Closing The Jaws On Demco 5th Wheel Hitch After Uncoupling
    On your Demco Hijacker Premier Series Ultra Slide # DM6076P-UL-16K, you will simple pull the handle out to the open position as you mentioned and pull forward to disconnect. The jaws will not automatically close, they will remain open for you to reconnect unless you manually close them. You can do this carefully with your hand although I don't recommend that for safety, or you can use a tool to put force on the spring loaded jaws. You may want to use the king pin lifting bracket # DM6100...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Nissan Titan XD w/ Factory Gooseneck Hitch
    Demco has a couple of solutions that will work for your truck. Both options I'll mention involve using an adapter, part # DM6200 that mounts into the existing factory gooseneck and allows you to install a fifth wheel hitch. Because your truck is a short bed, you'll need a sliding hitch to prevent the front of the fifth wheel from colliding with the rear of the truck's cab. For a standard sliding hitch with a 16K capacity, I'd recommend the Demco Hijacker Premier Series # DM6076P-UL-16K....
