Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Accessories HE12 Review

Today were going to take a look at the Brophy Hitch Extender for 2 inch trailer hitches, part number HE12. This product features a solid shank and prevents contact with the trailer or propane tanks when making sharp turns while towing. It will extend your hitch 14 inches from the center of each of the hitch pin holes here and here, and it features a powder coated black finish to help prevent rust and corrosion. It has a load rating of 3,500 pounds and a tongue rating of 350 pounds. Load rating with weight distribution equipment goes up to 7,000 pounds with a tongue weight of 700 pounds. The limiting factor is the capacity of your hitch.

You need to remember when using a hitch extender youre going to reduce your hitchs overall capacity by 50%. Taking a look at some dimensions, the overall length from here to here is 18 inches. Again, from center hole to center hole on the pin holes is 14 inches. The hitch pin hole on the shank to the beginning of the extension is 4 inches, and the center of the hitch pin hole on the opening end to the middle of the extension is 9 inches. Now were going to bring out our 2 inch hitch receiver demonstrator to show you how this would work.

You would just slide that on in there, get your pin and clip. This does not come with the item, however you can purchase this right here at etrailer.com, part number PC3 or for added security we do offer a number of hitch locks that will lock on to the hitch pin hole as well. You will simply put the pin through the hole and then clip that off, and youre ready to go. That should just about do it for our Brophy Hitch Extender for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers, part number HE12.

I had bought and returned 3 extenders made and sold by others prior to getting the Brophy 14" Extender. The Brophy is far more superior than the others. The solid shank is much longer than the others, and it extends into the hollow end by more than 2" than the others, which makes it more heavy duty than the other less expensive exterders. I placed this extender on the rear of a Sprinter RV to hold a 4 tray Kuat Bike Rack. With the superior quality of the Brophy, I'm now comfortable placing 4 high end bikes on the rack and it's SOLID. 170162

In that I'm into Kayak fishing, I often go off the beaten trail to find launch points. As a result I need to back my trailer into some very tight areas and I simply could not do so without my extender. The only reason I did not give this a 5 star, is because of the safety chains. I had to extend them and then Velcro them around the extender to prevent them from dragging the ground. It would be great if there were guides or mount points on the extender for the chains. 273189

It works great,by moving the trailer back from the vehicle you can load longer items,so there are not hanging over the back of the trailer. It also helps in the backing of the trailer. Thank You 261131

Quality ball mount and ball. I'm suprised to find extended ball mounts in 11", 13.5" and 16" sizes, so I can put down the tailgate on my pickup without detaching the trailer. Fast shipping (free) adds icing on the cake. They even sent a coupon for 5% off on my next order. THX 18707

Ask the Experts about this Brophy Hitch Accessories
Do you have a question about this Hitch Accessory?


  • How do Hitch Adapters and Extenders Reduce Hitch Weight Capacities
  • Using an additional extender, like part # HE12, is very different than the rack, like part # SMC600, having a lengthy shank. The extenders like part # HE12 are usually made of two different sized pieces of steel that are welded together. The HE12 uses a 2x2 outer dimension piece of solid steel that inserts into the hitch. Welded to the other end, is a piece of tube with a 2x2 inside dimension. That joint is a weak spot. This is a large part of why most of the extenders have a 50 percent...

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation for Hummer H2 Needing Clearance for Trailer Towing
  • We offer several hitch extenders that could work for you. But you should note that any time you use a hitch extender you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch in half. The Hitch Extender # HE12 that you referenced would give you an additional 12 inches of length added to your hitch. You would need to measure your setup to determine if that would give you enough clearance. For a shorter extender you would want the part # HE06 that would give you an additional 7 inches of clearance.

  • Can CURT Aluminum Cargo Carrier be Used with a Hitch Extended on a 2010 Toyota Tacoma
  • First, I need to tell you that the use of a hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. It looks like the hitches for a 2010 Toyota Tacoma have a 500 pound tongue weight capacity. With a hitch extender that capacity will be reduced to 250 pounds. If this is acceptable then will need to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the basket, which should be about 8 inches, on the carrier. You could then use # 80307....

  • What Soft Top Will Fit at 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Is Additional Overhead Storage Available
  • If your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a removable hard top and an aftermarket soft top is an option then, I would recommend the Bestop Trektop NX # B5682335. This is one of our more popular products, and it features Bestop premium sailcloth, which compared to vinyl or denim is more durable. It reduces road noise, and is mildew and UV resistant. This system also offers a built-in fold-back sunroof, and the side and rear curtains are removable to allow for additional air flow. It is available...

  • Availability of 10 Inch Hitch Extender
  • I am sorry, but a 10 inch hitch extender is not currently available. We do have a 14 Inch Trailer Hitch Extender, part # HE12. Please note that using a hitch extender will lower the tongue weight capacity of the hitch maximum downward force that can be applied to the receiver by 50 percent. If your hitch currently has a 350 pound tongue weight capacity, using the extender will lower it by half to 175 pounds. This would mean that the weight of the bike rack as well as the bikes attached...

  • Using a Hitch Extender on a Toyota RAV4 when Towing a Dirt Bike
  • We strongly recommend not hauling any more than the lowest rated component of your system. You must also keep in mind that using an extender decreases the hitch tongue weight capacity by 50%. This would mean your hitch tongue weight capacity would be only 175 lbs. It would not be safe to carry more than 175 lbs with your hitch and extender. This set up will not work to safely haul your dirt bike. Your best bet is to find a carrier with a longer shank so no extender is required or find another...

  • Is There A Standard Size for a 2 Inch Receiver
  • As you've discovered, a 2 inch receiver doesn't always measure exactly two inches by two inches. There is a manufacturing tolerance involved that allows the receiver to be a few hundredths of an inches larger or smaller than 2 inches, but still be within tolerance. Due to the fact that the connection between a hitch receiver and the shank of a ball mount or hitch mounted accessory isn't meant to be a precision fit, the tolerances are generous. These tolerances are common in manufactured...

  • The Softride Bike Rack Extender Bar, item # SR26033, is only intended for the 2 inch Softride Dura and Versa bike racks, and only provides up to 8 inches of extension. I would recommend using the Hitch Extender For 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver 14 inches, item # HE12, to provide the clearance you will need to mount your bike rack. Remember that when using an adapter the overall capacity of your hitch is reduced by 50 percent. Along with this extender I would recommend using an anti-rattle...

  • Could a Hitch Extender be Used on a Chevy Silverado Towing a Pop Up Camper with Class V Hitch
  • The Hitch Extender # HE12 that you referenced has 350 lbs of tongue weight and 3,500 total trailer weight capacity. If the trailer you have when it is fully loaded with your dirt bike weighs less than those figures then yes the # HE12 should work well for you. Normally we remind people that hitch extenders cut the capacity of hitches in half, but since you have a Class V hitch on your Silverado and you are only towing a pop up the reduced capacity should not be an issue for you.

  • Brake Controller and Hitch Extender Recommendations for 2007 Hummer H2 Towing Pop-Up Camper
  • Thank you for your prior purchases from etrailer! Towing a trailer with electric brakes will require that you install a trailer brake controller in your 2007 Hummer H2. The unit I recommend is the Prodigy P2 # 90885. This reliable and highly-rated controller is easy to set up and operate, it works with both electric brakes and electric-over-hydraulic brakes and it includes advanced features like built-in diagnostics and a bright LED display.

  • Hitch Extender Compatibility With 400 Pound Hitch Mounted BBQ Smoker On Ford F-150
  • A hitch extender like # HE12 will extend your hitch to allow you to lower your tail gate, however it will also cut the tongue weight of your hitch by 50%. You will want to check the hitch tongue weight rating on your F-150 to see if it can handle the weight. For some hitches you will be surpassing it already, and for others, you will be able to add the extension.

  • Will Use of Brophy Hitch Extender # HE12 Improve Handling of 16-ft Travel Trailer When Towed
  • As you noted, using any hitch extender or adapter will have the negative side-effect of reducing the tongue weight capacity of your hitch. In your case your specified factory hitch rating will be cut in half by use of an extender. The hitches we offer for your Ram 1500 (please see link provided) include both Class III and Class IV types. These vary in their tongue weight and gross towing weight capacities and even if your trailer weight is within the reduced hitch capacity (if used with...

Using a hitch adapter like the Brophy Hitch Extender, part # HE12, will reduce the towing and tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent. If your hitch is rated for more than 4,000 lbs, you should be fine using this adapter, but I would check the tongue weight and weight of the fully-loaded...
