Video Transcript for MaxxTow Hitch Accessories MT70355 Review

Today we're reviewing part number MT70355 from MaxxTow. This is a trailer hitch receiver adapter for your 1-1/4 inch class two receiver and it has a 2 inch hitch receiver tube up here so that enables you to use 2 inch hitch accessories with your 1-1/4 inch class two receiver. It has a solid shank; this part fits into your 1-1/4 inch class two receiver. Here is the hitch pin hole for that and it requires a half inch pin and a safety clip.Here is your 2 inch receiver tube right here and right here is your hitch pin hole for that. It requires a 5/8 inch pin and a safety clip. From the center of the smaller hitch pin hole in height up to the center of the 2 inch hitch receiver is 4-1/2 inches so you have a 4-1/2 inch rise and that will give you greater ground clearance.

From the center of this hitch pin hole to the center of this hitch pin hole is 6-1/2 inches. From the center of the smaller hitch pin hole to the back of the receiver here is 3 inches.This is made of sturdy steel and it has a black powder coat finish so it will resist corrosion and rust. It does require the hitch pins and the clips and you'll probably want a hitch lock also and all of those are sold separately. If you have a 2 inch accessory like a bike rack or a cargo carrier and you only have a 1-1/4 inch class two hitch receiver on your vehicle this is exactly the ticket you need to be able to carry those accessories.Please keep in mind that whenever you use an adapter whether its this one or another adapter that is going to reduce your hitch weight capacity by 50%. Also you should never use a hitch adapter in a towing application because it simply will not support the weight.

This does come with a 90-day warranty. There you have it for part number MT70355 from MaxxTow, the Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter for 1-1/4 Inch Class Two Hitch Receivers for up to a 2 Inch Hitch Accessory.

Great product, and very well planned installation on a brand new HR-V. The video indicated I would have to bend the muffler heat shield a little, but I installed that bolt/side first and let it lever the room it needed (practically none). I would say that getting inboard rear muffler isolation mount back on would be tough for a lot of people, as it was a tight space and required a great deal of prying - muffler backwards and rubber mount downwards. I also purchased an adapter to go from 1-1/4" to a 2" receiver with a 4-1/2" rise, and this made using my existing 2" flat rack and bike rack immediately usable on this vehicle. The measurements suggested it would be a close fit, and the adapter was either just touching the plastic bumper (we don't want rub marks!), or about a 1/16" away from it. I ground off about 1/8" from the top tapered down about 3/4" and it's perfect. 318643

Does exactly what it says it will do. I had to grind a little edge off the end so it would go into my receiver all the way, but my other straight adapter was the same way, so I think that is the receiver's fault. When I first drove with just the adapter in place, I could hear it rattle on bumps, but with the cargo carrier also in place I didn't hear any rattles. It would be better if it could use an anti-rattle threaded hitch pin as that would also reduce rocking that is compounded from having two receivers. Note that it is stamped "Not for Towing" 218242

Kind of an oxymoron as the weight of this adapter probably exceeds the class one hitch weight rating. The manufacturer states that adding this adapter reduces the hitch weight rating by half. Since the tongue rating started at 300# the reduction takes it to 150#, so there is little room for the weight of the bike rack and bikes. Overall the product was as described but I either missed the rating or it was not in the description. Quality of the piece is good. Powder coating was good as were the welds. 83421

I spent over $100.00 on adapters to extend & raise hitches level on my Prius to carry my wheel chair lift with little resultes, keep draging thr ground & driveways,etc. The local U-Haul store suggested that check out e-trailer on line. I found the exact product that would do the job. Excellent results, quality well made, all problems are gone. Very happy, My Daughter has also ordered same for her Prius. My delivery was 4 days to Arizona. So much Thanks. 152498

Product delivered in timely manner. Hitch is exactly as stated. Had a hard time finding exactly what 3was needed, but natter going to e trailer and continuing to refine my search I was able to find the right product. This is not the first time i have used E Trailer. Both experiences have been painless. The only issue I have is the cost of shipping vs the cost of the product. This is not e trailers fault. Just a comment on todays transportation costs. 83301

A well made product. Heavy duty with excellent welds and powder coating. The online measurements are accurate. I had been looking for a product that would raise the height of my cargo carrier when used on my Jeep TJ. This did the job. It raised the carrier up about 4 inches and cleared the spare tire with no problems. The service from etrailer was EXCELLENT. I received my order in 2 days. 453096

Previously, I had purchased a straight adapter that left our bikes nearly dragging in the road so I looked for an alternative and found this offset hitch. It works great and the bikes now ride high enough that I don't have to worry about secondary roads and uneven work areas. The construction is very sturdy and has held up just fine under the weight of 3 adult bikes.. 421308

All products arrived in a quick manner. The box was open and very damaged when it arrived to my house. A few scuffs were on the hitch itself. Not that it's a big deal being its a trailer hitch, but I expect it to start scuff free being its brand new. This is likely to be logistics fault. I recommend fastening the boxes that hold these hitches better. Thanks 359995

Very sturdy, exactly what I was looking for. For cars with a hitch lower to the ground, this adapter can allow you to add a cargo holder without that awful scraping sound from riding too low. Product was delivered quickly and the customer service from etrailer was outstanding. They notified me each step of the way. Very satisfied. 83556

Well built accessory with a quality painted finish. Great value! I received my shipment very quickly using the most economical shipping option.

The part was a good solid piece. Very well welded. However I would have loved the 11/4" piece to have been a bit longer and maybe an additional hole. I had to drill an extra hole because the 2" piece was rubbing on the bumper and holes wouldn't match. But it got here quickly and I was able to track package all the way. 165551

I would highly recommend etrailer! 203169

The product is as advertised.. I have a 2013 Corrola with a hitch that I use for a bicycle rack.. It was hitting going in and out of driveways. My problem was poor planning on my part because the adapter did not fit, Would not clear the bumper.. I ended up drilling a new hitch pin hole and it works fine.. 129612

I got this adapter for two purposes. The first was to raise any attachment up above the 10" I currently had off the ground. The second was to convert the 1 1/4" to the 2" I needed for the bike rack and cargo carrier I had from another vehicle. I am very happy with this very solid adapter. ' 239709

Purchased this adapter for a bike rack with a 2" end. The adapter is great quality with a nice finish. The 4 1/2 rise is perfect for cars that are low to the ground (I have an Audi A4 Avant wagon) to prevent the bike rack from bottoming out. Great shipping and service from etrailer. 180931

Wish the extension was a little longer to get out from under the bumper, but it is as described. Took a few weeks to arrive, a somewhat unusual part that is not in stock. But eTrailer contacted me with updates several times notifying me of the status. Good job with that!! 82308

It took forever to find what I needed, but I found it on e-trailers. I currently use a power chair and needed this attachment to raise my platform higher and still have the strength needed to carry the chair. Everything connected so easily, and it does a great job. 182659

  • Best Anti-Rattle Locking Hitch Pin for a Trailer Hitch Adapter with 1-1/4 Inch Shank
  • The 1-1/4 inch shank on the MaxxTow adapter # MT70355 is solid, see picture, so you will not be able to use anti-rattle hitch lock # 63147. But I do have a solution that you might like. You could use locking hitch pin # 5200 with anti-rattle device # 93347. It may not be the prettiest set up but it will give you a lock and anti-rattle.

  • High/Low Adapter for a 2015 Toyota Corolla with 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • We do have a few options for adapters for a 1-1/4 inch hitch but they can only be used in the rise position: # MT70355 (Class II only) # HT5R (Class I and II) Please note that the use of any adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent.

This adapter's 5-inches of rise will give you better clearance if you have a steep driveway entrance or if you just want the peace of mind of knowing you don't have to worry about the bike tires touching the ground.

I'd recommend the Curt # C18110, which is compatible with the Class II hitch you're interested in and features an angled shank that would provide over a 3 inch rise for improved ground clearance.

  • There are several different classes of 1-1/4-inch hitches offered for the Subaru Forester. Without knowing the vehicle's model year I cannot be absolutely sure if the hitch on the vehicle is a light-duty Class I type or a higher capacity Class II. Please note that 1-1/2-inches is not a standard size for a receiver opening; they are typically 1-1/4-inch, 2-inch or 2-1/2-inch on heavy duty trucks. We do offer hitch adapters and extenders that will allow 2-inch hitch accessories to be used...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 Honda Accord to Carry Bikes
  • For a trailer hitch I recommend # 24791. The other hitches will either come with a ball mount, which you will not need for a bike rack, or require a stabilization strap for non-trailer loads. The Draw-Tite hitch # 24791 is just the hitch and hardware and it does not require a strap for non-trailer loads. Once installed from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper is approximately 5 inches. The 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch adapters with a rise such as # MT70355 would end...

  • Anti-Rattle Adapter Recommendation For Curt Hitch When Using Adapter
  • The anti-rattle adapter I recommend is the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge, part # 93347. This will work for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch receivers and is designed to insert into the small gap that may exist on your receiver. You then tighten it up after it has been installed on the hitch pin as the attached photo shows. This should reduce the rattle and movement you have been having.

  • Trailer Hitch and Hitch Adapter Recommendation for 2008 Subaru Forester to Carry Bike Rack
  • I have a solution for you, but we do not offer any trailer hitches with a 2 inch hitch receiver for your 2008 Subaru Forester. All of the trailer hitches we offer for your vehicle are Class II trailer hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers. The only way to carry your bike rack with a 2 inch shank is to use a hitch adapter. The downside to using an adapter is that it will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent. The trailer hitch I recommend for your Forester...

  • What is the Distance from the 1 1/4 pin hole to the Back of the 2 Receiver Tube
  • I spoke to my contact at MaxxTow and he informed me that the distance from the 1-1/4 inch hole to the back of the 2 inch opening section is 3 inches. Check the picture I attached also.

  • Availability of 1-1/4 to 2 Inch Hitch Adapter w/ Straight or Rise Shank for Best Ground Clearance
  • We have both a straight adapter, as well as one that has a 5-1/2 inch rise to gain you additional ground clearance. The straight adapter is part # HTAD and the adapter with the rise is part # HT5R. Keep in mind that the best practice is to use a hitch mounted accessory that is compatible with your hitch without using an adapter. Using an adapter will lower the tongue weight capacity of your hitch (maximum amount of weight that can be suspended from it) by half. If your hitch has a 200...

  • Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # TH990XT Hits Driveway On Entry and Exit
  • Thank you for your recent purchase of the Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # TH990XT. When installed on your 2014 Chevy Malibu with Curt Class II hitch # C12115 the rear of this carrier will extend back from the bumper a substantial 28-1/2 inches. (Please refer to the linked video showing its use on your exact vehicle.) This elongated geometry at the rear of the car will indeed pose a challenge for use on steep driveways like yours. While there are hitch adapters available...

  • What are the Shank and Receiver Dimensions for Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter # RM-048-6
  • The Roadmaster High-low adapter # RM-048-6 fits in a 2 inch receiver and has a 2 inch receiver on the other end. We do have a similar product that fits in a 1-1/4 inch receiver and has a 2 inch receiver on the other end. It is # MT70355. Please check the laws in your area because in some places it is illegal to leave a ball mount or other item in the hitch when not in use. I also recommend a hitch lock, # 7683 for the 2 inch end or # 1472DAT for the 1-1/4 inch end. Or you can get...

  • Adapter for 1-1/4 Inch Hitch to 2 Inch Receiver with Rise for a 2006 Acura TSX and Bike Rack
  • When we installed Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 60831 on a 2006 Acura TSX it measured 4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to clear the rear bumper. The Curt adapter # D-192 will not fit because it only fits in 2 inch trailer hitch receiver openings. And the MaxxTow one, # MT70355, will not fit since it is for Class II hitches. That leaves Brophy adapter # HT5R. It will fit a Class I hitch but the issue with it is that the back of the 2 inch receiver does not come out far enough...

  • Options for Using 2-Inch Class III Bike Rack in 1-1/4-Inch Class II Hitch
  • A hitch adapter can allow a 2-inch accessory item like your Thule rack to be used in a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch like Draw-Tite # 36538. But the downside to using any adapter is that it will cause you to lose 50-percent of your hitch's capacity. This is due to the change in the geometry of the system when an adapter is added. An adapter like Maxx Tow # MT70355 will fit your 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch and provide a 2-inch receiver opening as well as a 4-1/2-inch rise for better ground...

  • Hitch and 2 inch Adapter Recommendation for a 2014 Mazda 3 for Carrying a Bike Rack
  • I have a solution for you, but first the reason the # MT70355 doesn't fit the Draw TIte hitch part # 24914 is because it will not slide all the way into Class I hitches like the Draw Tite. There is a stop built into the hitch that prevents Class II accessories from installing in Class I hitches. The adapter part # 24914 is Class I compatible so it will fit the Draw Tite hitch and work well. But as you may already know, adapters like this cut the capacity of the hitch in half. The Draw...

  • Center Exhaust on 2013 Hyundai Veloster Can Melt Plastic Trailer Hitch Accessories
  • The center exhaust on the 2013 Hyundai Veloster is fairly high up in relationship to where a hitch receiver would be. That is going to be a problem for any hitch mounted accessory. Interestingly enough the bike rack probably ended up protecting the bikes. The only option for this is to have an exhaust down turn, see link, to direct the exhaust downward instead of straight out. The only problem with this is finding one that fits the exhaust on a Veloster. A metal handle is not available...

  • Hitch Adapter Recommendation and How to Tell If Trailer Hitch is Class I or Class II
  • Both Class I and Class II trailer hitches have 1-1/4 inch receiver openings. The particular class rating should be listed somewhere on the trailer hitch that is installed on the 2003 Ford Escape. If you cannot find the class rating, there should also be a tongue weight and towing weight capacity listed on the hitch. A Class I hitch will typically have a tongue weight of 200 pounds and towing weight of 2,000 pounds. A Class II trailer hitch will be higher rated and usually have a 525 pound...

  • MaxxTow MT70355 and Brophy HT5R Hitch Adapter Fit on 2010 Chevy Malibu with Draw-Tite Hitch 36479
  • The MaxxTow Hitch Adapter # MT70355 fits into a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch like # 36479 and provides both raised height and a larger 2-inch receiver opening. Brophy offers a similar item # HT5R. We have installed this hitch on 2009 and 2011 model year Malibus but not a 2010. I reviewed the available installation videos and the two vehicles differ in their hitch-to-bumper clearance, despite all of them being part of the Malibu's 7th generation. So, what I did was measure these two hitch...

  • Adapter to Raise a 1-1/4" Bike Rack in a 1-1/4" Hitch
  • We do have a solution for you. Although there is not an adapter created specifically for your need, you can purchase a hitch adapter like MaxxTow's # MT70355. As you mentioned, this will go from a 1-1/4" to a 2" receiver. To solve that problem, you will need to purchase an adapter sleeve like # HT02 which transforms the 2" receiver into a 1-1/4". There are a couple of things you will want to keep in mind when using an adapter on your hitch. First, this style of adapter is only safe...

  • Hitch Adapter For 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • We do carry trailer hitch ball mounts that have a rise and fit 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches. I have attached a link to our product page for the 1-1/4 inch ball mounts we offer. We also carry adapters that will fit a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch, but for any adapters with a rise they are all 1-1/4 to 2 inch adapters. We do not offer any that are 1-1/4 to 1-1/4 inch.

  • Hitch and Adapter for 2003 Pontiac Vibe GT to Allow Use of 2-Inch Kuat NV Bike Rack
  • Your Pontiac Vibe GT can be equipped with either a Class I or Class II type 1-1/4-inch hitch. Since you want to use your Kuat NV 2-inch hitch bike rack # NV22G you will want to use the higher-capacity Class II hitch # C12221 from Curt. You will also need a hitch adapter to allow the 2-inch Kuat rack to be installed in the 1-1/4-inch hitch. You can use MaxxTow adapter # MT70355. This will fit into the class II hitch and provide a 2-inch receiver opening for the Kuat rack. This adapter...

  • 2 inch Hitch Adapter with Rise Availability for a 2000 Toyota Camry
  • As long as the hitch installed on your 2000 Toyota Camry is a Class II hitch like the part # 36336 you can use the adapter part # MT70355 which will give you a 2 inch hitch 4-1/2 inches higher than the opening of your hitch. For a locking hitch pin for the 2 inch portion of this you would want the part # 7683. You should note that when you use an adapter like this you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch in half.

  • Recommended Hitch Adapter with Rise To Clear Rear Bumper
  • Sounds like the distance from your hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper is 5 or more inches. The 1-1/4" to 2" adapters with a rise such as # MT70355 and # HT5R, which you reference, would end up making contact with the bumper. I recommend going with a straight adapter, like # HTAD, which measures 7-1/4" from pin hole to pin hole. This adapter is not to be used for towing and will fit only Class II hitches. I have included links to a helpful article on How to Choose a Bike Rack...

  • Recommended Hitch Adapter With Rise For 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • Using any hitch adapters in the trailer hitch on your Grand Caravan will reduce the trailer hitch capacity by 50 percent. From my research I found that you may have a Class ll or Class lll trailer hitch and it could have a 2 inch or 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. We do not offer an adapter with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening that fits 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers. We do have adapters that fit a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch and has a 2 inch receiver opening. For a 4-1/2 inch rise you...

  • Effects on Weight Capacity from Using Hitch Adapters
  • Hitch adapters can be a convenient way to join accessories of different sizes, such as allowing use of a 2-inch hitch bike rack or towing ball mount in a smaller 1-1/4-inch hitch. Examples of such items are MaxxTow # MT70355 and Curt # C45785. These both provide the same function but the MaxxTow also has 4-1/2-inches of rise built-in to give you more ground clearance for using a bike rack, for example. The "dark side" of hitch adapters like these is that they also unavoidably reduce...
