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.

Video Transcript for Demco Fifth Wheel - Sliding Fifth Wheel - DM6076SL-16K Review

Today we're going to review part number DM6076SL-16K. This is the Demco Hijacker SL series 16,000 lb. double pivot slider 5th wheel hitch. Now this 5th wheel hitch is designed to mount in your truck bed so you can tow your 5th wheel trailer. It is a slider hitch, and that is designed for short bed trucks to give you that additional clearance between the truck's cab and the trailer during turning maneuvers. Now this Hijacker SL series 5th wheel will allow you to move your hitch back towards the tailgate of your truck in 2 increments of 4 inches each, for a total of 8 inches.

So this will give you more clearance for the trailer to help make those maneuvering the trailer easier for short bed trucks. It does require the SL base rails and the custom install kit. They are sold separately on our website. What I would recommend to do is go to out website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you the SL base rails and the custom install kit for your application. Just to give you an idea of the special rails that are required for this slider, this is the SL base rails. If you look at these rails you can see they have the rows of holes in them.

The square holes is what is used to attach this to the truck bed. The round holes is what this tab would slide into and then the pin would go into those holes, to lock it into position. If you'll notice the SL rails are actually, like a groove right there, that this tab of the 5th wheel would slide back and forth in. This end is open. The other end is actually closed.

So when you install these in your truck bed, you want the closed end to be towards the cab of the truck, the open end towards the tailgate. When you go to install these . I just want to show you real quick here. Pull the clip out. Pull the clip out in the back. Now what I'm doing on this side, you'll do the same on that side.

You've got to do it on both sides. Then what you'll do is pull up on these pins, turn it 90 degrees and it will lock it in the up position. Same way back here. So then once you slide it, you'll put the tabs into the SL rails, and you'll see once they're slid into that they slide on those rails. Then when you release this . when you get over the hole, there you go, once it's released you'll get over the hole it will lock into position. Same way back here. It will lock into position. Then just put your clips back in to keep them from rotating. Then I'm going to show you in a minute here . We'll go back and I'll show you how to slide it, actually. This hitch does have the double pivot head. Makes coupling and uncoupling your trailer real easy. It goes front to back, and it will go side to side. The side to side movement is hard to show you because what happens, they use these polyurethane bumpers underneath the hitch head. That helps eliminate the side to side movement when the trailer is uncoupled, but when the trailer is coupled it will give you the nice cushioned pivot action. Has a wrap around jaw which will fully wrap around the king pin when it's installed, and in front is a locking bar. Gives you a nice smooth safe and secure ride. When you put this together your cross member, or saddle, as they call it, on the end right here will have 8 rows of holes, and you have to install 4 bolts on each side. So it will give you a choice of four different vertical hitch height adjustments. Your hitch height is measured from the truck bed to the top of the hitch head. So you want to get that correct for your application, because you want your truck and trailer to be level as possible, to give you a nice safe and smooth ride. So it will give you a choice of 16 inches, lowest hitch height, all the way up to 19 inches. So you'll get a correct application. This is made of a sturdy steel construction. Has nice corrosion resistant black powder coat finish. Few specs on this, the gross towing weight capacity is 16,000 lbs. Vertical load limit, or pin weight capacity is 4,000 lbs. And again the hitch height we mentioned is 16 inches to 19 inches. And the travel on this slider is 8 inches front to back. This part is made in the U.S.A. I want to quickly show you, like right now we've got it locked into position, so if you want to go from the towing position and then slide it back for maneuvering. First thing you want to do is you need to uncouple the trailer from the hitch. And then pull your truck ahead far enough, about probably 2 feet, and then you can move the hitch out of the way. You get up in your truck box, and what you've got to do is pull these clips, there will be four of them, two here and two over there. Once you pull those, then you just pull up on these pins, and like I said rotate them 90 degrees, to where they hold in the open position. You do the same over there. Then this will slide, once you have it on the other side, they'll slide back and forth, and once you slide it into what position you need, then you would just turn these and let them lock into position. Just like that. Put your clip back in there. The clip will secure it from moving. Then what you'll need to do, you'll return to the cab of your truck, then you can re-couple your trailer. Then your trailer is now ready to maneuver into your tight turning . if you do some tight turns, it will be ready to do that. The thing I do want to mention is that you'll never try to slide this hitch back while it is coupled to the trailer. This SL model series is designed to uncouple the trailer, do your movement, and then couple your trailer back up. One last thing I want to show you, is how the wrap around jaw works. I'm going to demonstrate that with this example of a . this is a king pin. 2 inch diameter king pin, that would be what is at the bottom, on the underside of your pin box. So when you go to hook up, you'll un-clip your pin and clip out of the handle, that releases your handle. Pull your handle all the way open, and it's ready to couple position. The jaw is open. You'll back up with your box and king pin on the bottom. Once you get in there far enough it will release that wrap around jaw. It goes completely around, the locking bar slides across and it's locked in position. All you'll need to do is go back take your pin and your clip, put it in, that keeps the handle from moving. You're all ready to go. That should do it for the review. Part number DM6076SL-16K The Demco Hijacker SL Series 16,000 lb. double pivot slider 5th wheel hitch. .

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. 470431

Review from a similar Demco Hijacker SL Series in Fifth Wheel


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

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! 617034

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!! 517850

  • Can Demco SL Series 5th Wheel Hitch be Used on 2018 GMC Sierra with Factory Pucks
    I spoke with my contact at Demco and unfortunately there is not a good way to convert the SL Series 5th Wheel Hitches like # DM6076SL-16K, nor is there an adapter available, that will allow it to attach to the factory pucks on your 2018 GMC Sierra 2500. Your only option is to go with a brand new hitch that is designed to mount to those pucks. For this I highly recommend the Curt A16 Slider # C16668 if your Sierra has the 6-1/2 foot bed or the fixed A16 # C16520-16025 if you have the...

  • Recommended Demco Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2013 Toyota Tundra With 5-1/2-Ft Truck Bed
    I just called my contact at Demco and if your fifth wheel trailer weighs 13,000-lbs or less, we have a fifth wheel setup that will work for you. You would need part # DM8550040.
