Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Accessories HT02 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Brophy hitch reducer for a two inch to a one and a quarter inch, number HT02. This adapter allows you to use your current hitch accessories on either a two inch hitch or, thanks to this device, a one and a quarter inch receiver hitch. It will easily convert your two inch receiver to a one and a quarter inch receiver. It has a maximum tongue weight of 300 pounds. It has a towing capacity of 3000 pounds, or the lowest rated towing component which means if your hitch or your vehicle has a towing capacity of less than 3000 pounds you need to go with that one to ensure that you're towing safely. The sleeve design does not reduce tongue weight capacity, as an extender would.

It measures three inches from center to pin hole to center to pin hole. Overall it is seven inches long by about two inches tall. It comes with a powder coated black finish. It conveniently comes with a half-inch pin and clip to hold the one and a quarter inch accessories into place. You will use the five-eighths inch pin and clip that should have come with your hitch to attach this to the hitch.

If it did not come with a five-eighths inch hitch pin and clip we do sell those separately, number PC3. Let's bring this in and show you how this is done with our two inch hitch right here. You will take the larger of the two holes, insert that right in here, lining up the holes. Using your five-eighths inch pin and clip slide that through, clip that off and now you're ready to use your one and a quarter inch hitch accessories, say bike rack, cargo carrier, ball mount whatever it is you need to use. You'll slide that right in here, you'll line up the holes and then you just pop that through and clip that off.

There you have it. That was our Brophy hitch reducer two inch to one and a quarter inch, number HT02.

It's heavy-duty, sure enough. Plenty stout for a 1 1/4 bike rack. However, I've noticed other posts citing the 2" adapter as just a bit small. My hitch is a brand new CURT #13200, so it isn't because of a worn receiver - your product is the first thing in it. If it were small in just one dimension it wouldn't rock side-to-side so badly, but it's small in both height and width by about a sixteenth or so. Just enough for a shim both top (or bottom) and side. That's annoying. The good news is, the 1 1/4 bike rack fits just fine, especially since my Hollywood rack uses a threaded bolt to anchor it in place. The 1/2" hitch pin you supply is redundant. The larger size would have been useful, the one you sent is not. Whatever 1 1/4 item we're adapting to either already comes with a 1/2" pin or your customer was already using one in the first place. Complaints aside, THIS is the ONLY 1 1/4 adapter on the market that works. My other choice is to have one fabricated. About the same cost, and this is a time saver. 377202

Bought this hitch reducer for my chevy Traverse to use my 1 1/4" Thule bike rack. Fits the car fine. The spare tire is immediately behind and inline with the trailer hitch. This does not extend beyond the 2" hitch toward the spare tire. My Thule bike rack now fits nicely into the trailer hitch. I use a regular pin to hold the reducer in the hitch. With the bikes attached the reducer "moves" inside the 2" hitch about a 1/16th of an inch. this translates to a full inch or 2 of movement of the bikes back and forth. The Thule 1 1/4" hitch bar has a threaded bolt to secure it to the Hitch/reducer. In a smaller hitch there is no play and the bouncing of the bikes. with the reducer it now takes some getting used to. I am contemplating a steel shim but I would need to make sure it cannot fall out during travel . . . 86951

The hitch adjuster is solidly constructed and fits easily into my two inch hitch, though it seems a little loose. Some play is, however, probably necessary for normal use. My 1 1/4" bike rack fits well into the internal dimension. I plan to use tie downs to steady the bike rack and minimize side-to-side wobble. Not sure if the dimensions on outer and inner fit could be enlarged just a bit to improve wobble without causing difficulty with assembly and removal. I may be able to add something more about this once I have worked with it under driving conditions. Overall, the product is just what I expected it to be. 394454

I can't say enough good things about the C.S. Brophy company and how they stand behind their products. I bought one of these adapters from etrailer and used it for months but it didn't fit right. I finally discovered the 5/8" hole on one side was off center. etrailer directed me to call Brophy, and Brophy replaced the item as quickly as could be expected, paid for the return shipping, and followed up to make sure the replacement worked correctly. The replacement is a well made piece of hardware that should last many years. I will look first for Brophy products whenever I'm shopping for trailer hardware. 107151

It did what is was supposed to, reduce from a 2" to 1 1/4", it work but it is a little loose, bike carrier moves around a lot. 15694

The folks at eTrailer are the best at answering questions, recommending the right part and following up after the sale. I bought this hitch reducer and then the people who sold me the bike rack remembered that it came with an adapter that they had never used. Meanwhile, the reducer from eTrailer arrived very quickly. I will probably be returning it as I no longer need it. Nevertheless, I will remember the great customer service at eTrailer and will buy future products from them! 237118

I am very pleased with my experience with etrailer. I was searching the web for a hitch reducer and I happened on your site. You had a video of the hitch reducer that I was interested in so I got a very good idea of what I was buying. The product arrived exactly as in your video. Now I'll be able to use my hitch for my bike rack. Thank you very much. I wish all my interrnet purchasing experiences were as good as what I experienced with your company! 101669

What I especially like about this product is it is much shorter and compact compared to other hitch adapters. This allows my bike carrier to be mounted several inches closer to my vehicle, but still has sufficient clearance from the bumper. The shorter design also results in less sway and bounce of the bike carrier. On the downside, I think it's probably the most expensive 2" to 1 1/4" hitch adapter on the market. But hey, you get what you pay for. 336556

by: John G.08/10/2016

This is about as short a reducer as I found. Product shipped and arrived in the timeframe expected (maybe faster). On receipt I installed it and tried it with the 1" steel luggage rack we have. Everything fits. I knew the opening of the two inch tow harness was under the bumper a bit, and measured prior to purchase to be sure the rack would not be against the bumper when installed. Wouldn't want it any closer, but it fits. 282357

Great product and the customer service is impeccable. I've ordered the trailer hitch from them 1 1/2 weeks after I ordered a grill guard from another online store and my trailer hitch came in faster. It's amazing. I decided to order the adapter from them again and had a couple of questions before I place the order, customer service rep was really courteous and knowledgeable. I received my adapter in 3 days. Amazing store! 33575

I'm very impressed with the ordering process and the quickness of delivery. The product is very well made. I also thought it was great that there was a video demonstrating the product. Made it very easy for me to see that this is the EXACT product to fit my needs. I will shop for all my RV, auto, trailer, bike needs. I think my local RV dealer will be using you as well. You have great pricing. Thank you!! 86048

The hitch reducer does what it says...reduces from a 2" to a 1 1/4" receiver. It was the perfect length to extend past the spare tire on my Jeep. My only complaint is that it has a bit of wiggle in it. I'm ordering a stabilizer to see if that solves the problem. Not sure why so much wiggle is there but I don't want my bikes moving around so much. We will see if the stabilizer fixes the problem. 386383

by: Frank G.06/03/2015

I found the design, construction and materials are excellent and the fit was good but looser than I had hoped for. My 1-1/4 cargo rack has two pin holes, as if it was made to fit an adapter. I would like the internal sleeve to extend the full length of the adapter. The option of selecting which pin I want would be nice, too. Overall, this adapter is fine and worth the price. 200085

I bought this to use a cargo rack that was given to me on my 2013 Murano. My hitch is 2" and the cargo carrier is 1 1/4". This made the transition perfectly. The best part is it's not so long like any of the others that I've found. This being only 7" long, my cargo rack does not stick out so far like it would with a 12" adapter. Fast shipping, great communication from etrailer. 296370


After a year, this is still working perfect. Thanks.

I needed a hitch reducer to attach my bike rack to our vehicle for my family's upcoming vacation trip. My bike rack had a 1 1/4" hitch and my vehicle has a 2" receiver.

This product worked like a charm. I was trying to find a product to mount my Bell bike rack on a 2" Hitch and reduce it to 1 1/4". My bike rack was quite unstable with the plastic reducer Bell had provided. With this product, my bike rack fits well with no rattle and I drove a long distance carrying 4 bikes during father's day without any problems. 44586

The adapter slid right in to the factory hitch on our 2012 Volvo XC60. This is a big deal since we had to return a different brand of adapter because the corner radii did not match up and it would not go in. There's a little bit of play, but the locking/snugging kit we also got will take care of that. Great solution for my 1 1/4" tongue bike rack! 33221

I was searching for a solution to a rear mounted spare tire jack and fuel can mount. This mount uses a 2 inch mount, but the center wheel opening is 11/2 so I needed an adapter to downsize. I was not aware that adapters were available, until I can across your site and there is was. I purchased it and it work just as your site stated it would. 160928

Product is solid, easy to connect just as advertised. Delivery was fast and good notification as it progressed. My bike rack came with an anti-wobble bolt that tightens it to the receiver. Without it, this unit would wobble using just the pin that came with this product. But they all seem to have this problem to some degree. 386258

I am very pleased with the quality of the product. This hitch reducer is 100% quality, and while I could have gotten one for $13 shipped to my house from eBay their's are of poor quality. And that is why I decided to buy from being they sell the best quality stuff. As the old saying goes "you get what you pay for". 175237

I had great trouble finding this item anywhere else but my sales rep. at etrailer knew exactly what I was looking for. I had a 1 1/4 receiver on my Malibu and several 1 1/4 hitch bars with different sized balls, but my new vehicle has a 2in receiver and I didn't want to buy new hitches. The reducer solved my problem simply. 303784

by: Donna M07/07/2016

Still not quite the snug fit I was hoping for - but it certainly accomplishes the goal of being able to insert the Kuat rack. For further security, I added a lock that keeps the rack from swaying as much. The line up of the hitch, the insert, and the bike rack was challenging but improved the overall install. 268852

by: Phil L.05/26/2015

Your web site was very helpful. I wasn't sure if I needed just a reducer or a extension. Just a reducer worked fine. It's heavy duty so it should hold up well. The video was very helpful showing how the reducer fit. I didn't know I needed a 5/8" pin which the video mentioned so I ordered that also. Thanks! 196944

It does exactly what it was advertised to do- adapt my current 4" hitch so I could attach my bike rack. There's some wiggle room, (literally) but I knew that before I bought it. The bike rack actually fits more snugly than it did in an old vehicle I once had with a hitch. 73746

by: Doug D.03/31/2011

There is a fair amount of play between this adapter and a 2" receiver so any attachments used (bike rack or cargo rack) will rock back and forth more than expected. I used small pieces of aluminum to shim between the adapter and the receiver the minimize the movement. 10858

Very satisfied, easy ordering online with fast delivery. This adapter installs in a few seconds with no tools required. It is a little lose fitting but can be removed just as easily as installing. Wish it came with a 5/8 pin as i already have the smaller one. 85357

  • Using a Dual Hitch Adapter to Carry a Bike Rack and a Cargo Carrier
  • Due to the lower tongue weight capacities of trailer hitches that have 1-1/4 inch receivers, there are no dual hitch adapters available for a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers. The adapters are only available for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. If you have a 2 inch trailer hitch and a bike rack or cargo carrier with a 1-1/4 inch shank, you could use a hitch reducer like part # HT02 to allow you to use your hitch mounted accessory with the dual hitch adapter.

  • How to Calculate Tongue Weight Capacity Reduction When Using A Hitch Extender On Toyota Rav 4
  • A hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch and the vehicle by 50 percent. You must abide by the capacities of the lowest rated component. For example if the tongue weight capacity of the hitch is 200 pounds, but the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle is 150 pounds, you must abide by 150. If you use a hitch extension, then your new tongue weight capacity is 75 pounds. Since a hitch is bolted to the vehicle and essentially becomes part of the vehicle, it does...

The first thing I would check is to see if there is an adapter sleeve or alternate shank that is designed specifically for your bike rack in order to use it in a 2 inch hitch. This would be the most ideal way to adapt the bike rack to fit the new hitch. If a specific adapter is not available, you can use a reducer sleeve to convert the 2 inch hitch to a 1-1/4 inch for times when you want to use the bike...

  • If I Use Hitch Adapter HT02 to Convert Yakima Holdup to Work in a 2 inch Hitch is Capacity Reduced
  • If you use the # HT02 adapter to convert a Yakima Holdup 2 Bike Rack # Y02445 designed for 1-1/4 inch hitches so that it can be used in a 2 inch hitch you would not reduce the capacity of the rack. You would be able to carry 2 bikes with the setup still.

  • Will The Yakima Replacement 2 Inch Hitch Adapter, # Y8890174, Fit A Older Yakima 4 Bike Rack
  • The Yakima Replacement 2 Inch Hitch Adapter, # Y8890174, is designed for use on the Yakima Flipside, StickUp, and the DoubleDown models. Since I do not know what model Yakima bike rack you have it will be hard to determine if this adapter will work on your bike rack. I do have the Brophy Hitch Adapter 2 Inch to 1-1/4 inch, # HT02, which will reduce your 2 inch receiver down to 1-1/4 inch receiver. It will work with 1-1/4 inch hitch accessories. I am sending a video link on the...

  • Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack Adapter for 1-1/4
  • I have the perfect solution for you if you have a Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack, like part # NV12G, with a 1-1/4 inch shank to fit the Draw-Tite Max-Frame 2 inch Receiver # 75699 on your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The people at Kuat thought these kind of scenarios through and have made an Adapter # D101 for situations just like yours. This will allow you to carry your Kuat bike rack with a 1-1/4 inch shank in your 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. If you don't have the 2.0 version of the NV then...

  • How to Get a Thule T2 for 1-1/4 Inch Hitches to Fit a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I do have a solution for you but adapter # 853-7489 does not fit the T2, # TH9045. What you can use (and what is basically the same thing only it doesn't attach to the bike carrier) is a reducer sleeve, # HT02. Pin the reducer into the hitch receiver and then you can place the 1-1/4 inch shank from the T2 in and you'd be good to go.

  • Parts Needed to Convert an Older Yakima HoldUp 2 inch Bike Rack to a 1-1/4 inch Class II Hitch Setup
  • I spoke with my contact at Yakima and there is a replacement shank for your older Yakima Holdup 2 Bike rack , item # Y02433. The 1-1/4 inch Hitch Adapter for Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Carrier, item # Y80126, can be used to convert your rack to a Class II hitch mounted bike rack. You will need to check the hitch on your Acura RDX to be sure it can accept Class II accessories. There is not an adapter available for the HoldUp that will fit in a Class I hitch. If you would like to retain the...

  • Can the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Se Platform Bike Rack be Separated into Two Racks
  • I have solution for you, but the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Platform 4 Bike Rack, # HR1400-85, can either be a 2 bike rack or a 4 bike rack. The unit cannot be separated into two separate 2 bike racks. We do carry the Pro Series Q-Slot Platform-Style 2-Bike and 4-Bike Rack, # PS63138. This bike rack has both a stand alone 2 bike rack that fits a 2 inch hitch and a stand alone bike rack that will fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch.

  • Will a Thule Apex 4 Bike Rack Work on a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with 255/75R17 Tire
  • If the hitch on your 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon has a 2 inch receiver opening then the Thule Apex Swing Away Bike Rack, # TH9027, will fit in the hitch. The problem will come in with the spare on the back of the Jeep. I did the math and your 255/75R17 tire and wheel combination works out to be 10.04 inches wide, which will not allow the Thule Apex to be inserted fully into the hitch. Your Jeep also has a spare tire carrier between the spare and the back of the vehicle increasing...

  • How to Attach a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Bike Rack to a RV Bumper Hitch
  • I would recommend to use the Brophy Hitch Reducer, part # HT02. This reducer will insert into a 2 inch hitch receiver on your RV and allow you use your 1-1/4 inch hitch bike rack. It will extend out from the original hitch pin hole an extra 3 inches. Hopefully, an extra 3 inches would not cause you any problems. It comes with a 1/2 inch pin and clip for the hitch accessory, but you will also need a Hidden Hitch 5/8 Inch Pin and Clip, part # PC3 to attach the reducer to the hitch. There...

  • Using the Thule T2 # TH917XTR on a 2 Inch Receiver
  • The Thule T2 you mention, part # TH917XTR is compatible with the 1-1/4 inch receiver only. Thule does not offer an adapter that is compatible with the T2, like with other of their racks. In order to use the T2 on a 2 inch receiver, a Hitch Reducer sleeve, like part # HTO2 would be your best option. The locking hitch pin included with the T2 will work with the reducer, but an additional hitch pin like part # PC3 or lock like part # 40107 will be needed to retain the reducer into the...

  • Why are There Two Different Size Holes on the Draw-Tite Class III Hitch for 2009 Honda CR-V
  • The Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch, # 75547, that you have on your 2009 Honda CR-V will use the 5/8 inch hole to secure hitch mounted accessories or ball mounts to the trailer hitch. The smaller hole is designed for the J-Pin Stabilization Pin, # 63201, and is not intended to be a hitch pin hole. If you have a hitch mounted accessory with a 1/2 inch hole, then it is probably intended to be used with a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver, rather than a 2 inch receiver. If this is the...

  • Is Replacement Hitch Adapter 853-7489 A Generic Fit For All 1-1/4 Inch Racks

They have the threaded hole in the shank that aligns with the hole on the adapter. If your bike carrier is one of those listed, this adapter would work for you. If you do have one of the bike carriers listed then this adapter will allow you to use a 1-1/4 inch shank bike rack with a hitch that has a 2 inch receiver without...

  • Trailer Hitch and Weight Distribution Recommendations for a 2009 Lexus GX470
  • For your 2009 Lexus GX470 I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75155. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver and is rated for 600 pounds tongue weight (limited to the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle if lower). This hitch is a great option for use with a cargo carrier. If your cargo carrier fits a 2 inch hitch receiver you won't need anything else. But if it fits a 1-1/4 inch hitch then you would need to use a reducer sleeve, # HT02. When using this reducer the tongue weight is limited...

  • Replacement Shank for a Thule Expressway Bike Rack to Fit in a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • The shank for the Expressway bike racks has an L-shape with the vertical part welded to the horizontal part. Replacement shank # 853-7292 will not work as a replacement because of the original design of the Expressway. You would have to use a reducer to use the 1-1/4 inch shank in the 2 inch receiver. You can use # HT02. The use of this adapter does not reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch and it comes with a pin for the part that fits in the 2 inch receiver. A 1/2 inch diameter...

  • Can I Use the Aluminum Shank Adapter # 853-7292 with My Thule 937 Hitching Post Pro
  • To be able to use your Thule Hitching Post Pro 937 in the 2 inch hitch on your truck you will need to use the Brophy Trailer Hitch Adapter, item # HT02, see video link. Along with this adapter you will also need an Anti Rattle device for the 2 inch receiver to help keep the bike rack from bouncing. The anti-rattle hitch pin, item # 63232, would be a good choice for this application. I spoke with my contact at Thule on your behalf and found that the Thule Replacement Aluminum Shank Adapter...

  • Will the SportRack Adapter Sleeve fit a Schwinn Hitch Bike Rack
  • I have a solution for you, but the SportRack 2-inch sleeve # 05001300000 you referenced was specifically designed for certain bike racks, so I wouldn't be able to say yes with certainty. Going with a hitch reducer like # HT02 and what I recommend won't reduce your tongue weight capacity and will transform your 2-inch receiver into a 1-1/4 inch receiver. Another option is a hitch adapter like # MT70033. This will allow you to use your 1-1/4 hitch mount accessories with your 2-inch...

  • Hitch Reducer and Extender for a Thule T2 and 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
  • The Thule T2, # TH9045, extends out a good distance by itself (18 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest bike carrier rail) but if that is not enough you could use an extender. However, the use of an extender and reducer will decrease the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. Using just a reducer sleeve, such as # HT02, will provide you with just 3 inches extension but since it is not a true extension it will not reduce the tongue weight capacity...

  • Can the Rola Enclosed Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4 Inch Be Adapted to a 2 Inch Hitch
  • Yes, you can use an adapter, but I would recommend purchasing the Rola Carrier that is fitted for 2 inch hitches, part # 59110. If you already have the 59108 carrier or need the ability to use the carrier with both 1-1/4 and 2 inch, then the adapter is the way to go. I would recommend the Brophy Adapter Sleeve, part # HT02 as it has the highest capacity of the 2 to 1-1/4 adapters. It has a tongue weight capacity of 300 pounds. The 59108 cargo carrier weights about 85 pounds, so that...

This part is intended for use specifically with Thule rack models # TH912, # TH914 and # TH954. My contact at Thule confirms this. In order to use your Thule Parkway TH957 rack that has a 1-1/4 inch shank with a 2-inch hitch receiver, you can instead use a hitch reducer sleeve such as the Brophy # HT02. This steel reducer slides into your 2-inch hitch receiver...

You would need to use an aftermarket 2 inch to 1-1/4 inch adapter like the Brophy hitch reducer, # HT02, to be able to install this rack in the 2 inch hitch on your Tundra.

I checked the dimensions on the Thule T2 Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, part # ETTHT2C-1, and found that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the bike rack when folded up is 3-1/2 inches. That would put the bike carrier so close to...

  • Using a 1-1/4 Inch Bike Rack in a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • You will not want to drill holes in the bike rack shank because that could lead to a weakened shank and loss of rack! I have a great solution for you though. Since you need to install a 1-1/4 inch rack into a 2 inch shank you can use reducer sleeve # HT02. It would only extend the rack 3 inches and it is the safest way to use the rack with a 2 inch hitch. The adapter, # SP323, is threaded because the screw has to hold both halves of the adapter together.
