Video Transcript for Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Adapter Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the hitch adapter inch and quarter to two inch trailer hitch receiver. Part number 80303. This hidden hitch adapter is going to take any class two inch and a quarter receiver and convert it to a two inch receiver, allowing you to use any two inch accessories. Now we're using our cargo carrier with our adapter here today, but it would be great for bike racks or any other two inch accessories. Please note, however, it does cut your tongue weight in half, and is not recommended to be used for towing. From pin hole to pin hole you've got six inches, so you're getting a bit of an extension as well.

Now the pin and clips are not included. We've got a PC3, which is our five inch pin and clip, for our adapter side, and for our hitch side we've got a PC2, which is going to be our half inch pin and clip. It's a much more economical solution that having to buy two bike racks or two cargo carriers for multiple vehicles. Now it's extraordinarily easy to install. We've just got our adapter plugged into our receiver, and our accessory plugged into our adapter. That's going to complete our look at the hitch adapter inch and quarter to two inch trailer hitch receiver.

Part number 80303.

Over the years I have been very happy with my purchases from etrailer in general. This little adapter is another good purchase. I bought this one over the other offered because the finish is better. I believe the quality welding and smooth finish will help keep the corrosion at bay for a bit longer and it looks nicer. I appreciate etrailer.com putting forth the effort to provide good pictures for comparison and to ensure the overall dimensions are going to work. 52336

Do you have a question about this Hitch Adapter?


  • Anti-rattle Device Recommendations for the Trailer Hitch Adapter # 80303
  • On the Hitch Adapter, # 80303, the end that fits into the trailer hitch requires a 1/2 inch hitch pin and the receiver side needs a 5/8 hitch pin like you have said. Provided that the bike rack shank is hollow, you may be able to use Anti-Rattle Device and Lock, # S64030. For the end of the adapter that fits into the trailer hitch, I recommend # 93347. Another issue that you may not be aware of is that the use of an adapter reduces the tongue weight capacity of a trailer hitch by...

  • How Can I Use My 2 Inch Bike Rack with my 1-1/4 Inch Hitch
  • We offer adapters so you can use the 2 inch bike rack with the 1 1/4 inch receiver hitch. The appropriate adapter for your hitch depends on what class it is. You can use part # HTAD if your hitch is a Class I or Class II and part # 80303 will only fit Class II. Please note, using either of these adapters will reduce your tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. If you have a Class I hitch with a 200 pound tongue weight capacity, using this adapter you will only be able to put 100 pounds...

  • Hitch Adapter Needed for a Class I Trailer Hitch
  • The Hitch Adapter 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch, item # 80303, has a longer shank on it so that it can not be installed in a lower capacity Class I hitch. Class I hitches have a stop inside the receiver to keep higher capacity Class II accessories from being installed in them, so they are not overloaded. The Hitch Adapter 1-1/4 to 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver, item # HTAD, is designed for use in both a 1-1/4 inch Class I and Class II hitch so it may work for your application. We...

When using an adapter, you must take into account that your tongue weight will be reduced by 50 percent so the weight of your bikes and rack could not exceed 100 or 125 pounds, depending on which hitch you purchase.

  • We do not carry a trailer hitch mounted spare tire carrier for a 1-1/4 inch receiver, but, you could use a 2 inch, like # C31006, with a reducer like # 80303. I have included a video review of this adapter below. Please note that when using an adapter, the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch is reduced by 50 percent. If you are just using the spare tire carrier and a tire/wheel on it, you should not have to worry about that reduction.

  • Use of Any Adapter Does Decrease the Hitch Tongue Weight Capacity by Half
  • You are experiencing a common dilemma. The use of any adapter does decrease the hitch tongue weight capacity by 50%. If your MKX Class II hitch offers a 350 lbs tongue weight capacity then with an adapter the bikes and rack combined cannot exceed 175 lbs. For most applications this would be sufficient but not knowing your bikes and how much they weight I cannot tell you for certain if this will work.Should you decide to go with an adapter we would recommend an anti rattle lock to secure...

  • Can a 1-1/4 Inch to 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter be Used on an ATV Hitch for a Winch
  • Physically, yes, you can use a 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch adapter, like # 80303, in your ATV receiver. But, there are a couple of things you will need to be aware of. First, you will need to check to make sure that the receiver on the ATV has at least 2 inches of space from the center of the hitch pin hole back away from the receiver opening. If it has a closed back or something in the way and the obstruction is less than 2 inches from the hitch pin hole center, this adapter will not fit. Second,...

  • How To Tell What Class Hitch I Have on My Toyota Matrix
  • There are a few ways to tell if you have a Class I hitch. Your hitch should have a sticker with the weight ratings, that indicate if it is a Class I hitch. A Class I hitch will have a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 lbs and a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. The other way to tell is, on a Class I hitch, there will be a small dent or punch in the receiver behind the hitch pin hole. If your hitch has this punch, it is a Class I hitch. The reason the punch is there, is to prevent customers...

  • The Hidden Hitch 1-1/4 Inch to 2 Inch Hitch Adapter, part # 80303, is our shortest adapter, but can only be used with a Class II receiver. If you have a Class I receiver, you will need part # HTAD. Part # 80303 will stick out about 1-1/4 inch less, than # HTAD. You can check the label on your hitch or send us the hitch number to find out if it is Class I or Class II. I am including a link to a FAQ page that will help describe the different classes of trailer hitches. Please note,...

  • Difference Between Curt and Tow Ready 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch Hitch Adapters
  • Realistically there isn't much difference between the two extenders you referenced aside from price. Both are extenders that go from 1-1/4 to 2 inch and are both right at 6 inches in length. If it were me I would go with the Curt # C45785 over the Tow Ready part # 80303.

  • You are correct the hitch receivers for the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, like # 24949, are 1-1/4 inch Class I hitch receivers. You can use an expander like # 80303. This will provide you with a 2 inch receiver on your Golf Alltrack. However, the hitch has a tongue weight of only 200 pounds and using an adapter will reduce that by 50 percent. So that means your bikes can only weigh a total of only about 50 pounds since the Thule T2 Pro # TH9034XTS is 52 pounds. Instead of using...

I have included a video review of the adapter below. We do not currently have that particular cover specifically for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. We do have an Ohio Buckeye trailer hitch cover that will fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch. It is # CHC322L.

The T-Load has a 132 lb capacity, but the roof rack on your vehicle would be supporting 2/3 of the load. The Yakima DryDock you referenced wouldn't be the best choice. The first issue with using the DryDock on your Camry is that a Camry would most likely use a Class II Receiver with a 1-1/4 inch by 1-1/4 inch receiver...

  • How to Determine the Hitch Class Size on a 2004 Subaru Forester for use with a Hitch Adapter
  • The easiest way to determine if you have a Class I or Class II OEM hitch, would be to contact a Subaru dealer or check your owners manual. If that does not work out, you will need to check out the hitch opening itself to see if there is a stop stamped into the hitch behind the hitch pin hole. If you have a Class I hitc,h there will be a stop designed into the opening, approximately 1-9/16 inches behind the center of the hitch pin hole, that will not allow a Class II accessory to line...

  • Adapting a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch on a 2008 Ford Edge to use a 2 Inch Bike Rack
  • You can use this 1 1/4 inch to 2 inch adapter, part # 80303. However, use of this adapter will LOWER the tongue weight capacity (should be listed on a sticker that is on your hitch) by 50 percent. This means that the bikes you want to carry and the carrier itself cannot weigh more than half of the listed tongue weight for your trailer hitch. Exceeding this capacity could result in damage to your hitch and loss of the rack and the bicycles.

  • Can a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Mount Accessory be Used on a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch on a 2011 Toyota Camry
  • It is possible to use your 2 inch accessories in a class II, 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch. You would have to use a hitch expander, 1-1/4 to 2 inch. However, the use of an expander will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. It appears that the vast majority of trailer hitches for a 2011 Toyota Camry have a tongue weight capacity of 300 pounds. When using an expander, like # 80303, that capacity will be cut down to 150 pounds. This means that the weight of...

  • For a hitch your best option will be the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24914 that you referenced. This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch opening that won't require a stabilizer strap when you are carrying a bike rack with it. If you were to use an adapter like part # 80303 to allow this hitch to carry a Thule bike rack designed for 2 inch hitches you will cut the capacity of the hitch in half so this would not be a great route to go since the tongue weight capacity of this hitch is only 200...

  • The MaxxTow Ball Mount w/ 2" Accessory Receiver - 2" Hitches - 1-5/8" Drop - 5,000 lbs, # MT70066 does not come in a 1-1/4 inch size. You can use an adapter like # 80303 if you have a Class II hitch and need a 2 inch accessory option, but it will reduce the tongue weight rating of your hitch by 50%. This adapter is not to be used for towing. There is not an towing and accessory combination for a Class I or Class II hitch receiver based on their rated max capacities.

I recommend the Draw-Tite over the Curt, because Curt requires the Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap # 18050 to be used with any non-trailer loads. This is within the guidelines of their warranty.

You can use Hitch Adapter, # 80303. The small end would go in a 1-1/4 inch receiver and the other end will accept a 2 inch hitch cover.

For example if your existing hitch had a tongue weight capacity of up to 350 pounds, then using this adapter would reduce the tongue weight to 175 pounds.

However, first I must warn you that the use of an adapter reduces the trailer hitch tongue weight by 50 percent.
