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.
Average Customer Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars (85 Customer Reviews)Adapter lets you use your 2" hitch-mounted accessories with your 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver. 4-1/2" Rise gives extra ground clearance. Hitch pin and clip sold separately.
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

Fits my 2010 ford Edgeperfectly. Very strong for my tailgating platform we haul the tents, grill, generator, etc. on. The extra clearance will be wonderful! 96091

Well built adapter cannot go wrong with this one. 128755

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

The adapter works perfectly Thanks e trailer 102680
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. ETrailer communicated with me via email regarding the status of my shipment. Their tracking feature is the best I've ever experienced. I highly recommend buying from this company. 167331

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 was 3000 miles from home and desperately needed this hitch elevator and quickly. etrailer fixed me up quickly: in less than a week's time; were very efficient and pleasant on the phone and followed up my order with up-dates of their progress, and at a excellent price. 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
by: Brian Lavoie03/26/2015
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

Product came in exactly as advertised; great customer service and fast delivery. 89487
by: Pete P.05/29/2013
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
by: Clint M.12/18/2014
Awesome product! Can't wait to use it on my Cargo carrier hitch! Thanks! 166172

etrailer is a great website that has great info on their products, including usability, use of images (allowing users to see lots of detail about the product showing products), useful visuals showing how you can sync with various devices. Thanks again, Michael S 300429
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
Looks like just what the doctor ordered for my situation with very low ground clearance using my rear bumper mounted cargo carrier. Will also use with my biked carrier. Not sure why it is not approved for towing use although I did not but it for that purpose. 157491
I ordered and received this product and it is just as advertised. I haven't used it yet but it is what I need so I have no doubt it will do the job. Etrailer has been great to work with and they do what they say they will do. That's a bonus. 111465
Seriously solid hunk of nicely finished steel. Unfortunately the 1-1/4 shank wasn't long enough not to encroach on the bumper of my 2009 Nissan Versa equipped with Curt part number 11348 Trailer Hitch. I wish it had worked. 213456
by: Steve P.11/25/2014
I bought this Item to adapt my car hitch from 1 1/4" to 2" and raise my car carrier, (It sometimes would drag the ground) worked great on my 2009 Subaru Forester. etrailer.com had fast service...I am very pleased! 162435
by: Jim D06/18/2014
Actually fits in the receiver better than the product sold by the installer. The lift is just enough to allow my cargo carrier to enter my drive without scraping bottom. Nice product, would recommend very readily. 136303
Delivery came as promised. The receiver/adapter is high quality. I haven't used it yet, but am planning to carry a platform behind my motorhome tow vehicle. My order was handled promptly and efficiently. 166253
by: Peggy G09/24/2013
The adaptor fit perfect, just what we needed to lift my wheel chair carrier up high enough as not to drag every bump we go over. I would highly recommend this product. We appreciated the fast shipping. 101251
by: Charles Cummins08/08/2014
Great product. Just like pictured. I was looking for an adapter to raise my load point for a 1 1/4 receiver. Couldn't find one so I have to find my accessories in the 2 " line which isn't that hard. 145389
by: Andrea S08/04/2016
Built well but a little on the heavy side considering this was only to raise the height of a bike rack on a sports car. The hitch adapter is nearly as heavy as the bike rack and my bike combined. 279642
by: tom P.06/02/2016
THIS IS A great Company , the item I ordered was correct and quickly sent. I wish I used it before. U Hall gave me this Company to order my need. To all staff THANK YOU Tom 256050
by: Ben R04/25/2014
I'm using this for a bike rack, and the 1 1/4" portion doesn't fit very tightly into the receiver, causing a bit of a wobble in the rack. Other than that the part is exactly as advertised. 127401
Great product does what it is intended, could have longer part that fits in receiver, or maybe the info that you need an extension for some vehicles should be mentioned (1 1/4 to 1 1/4) 201042
by: Nadim K06/25/2013
Delivered on time. Product quality as expected. Used it on the back of the RV to attach a 2" tow Basket to carry extra stuff. Previously only the spare tire was on this 1 1/4" hitch. 85968
needed it for accepting my platform from my smaller hitch. I wish there was a stablizer for the small end as it wobbles a lot but not in the 2 inch area.. Other than that it is fine. 261812
The hitch rise fit well on my 2006 Toyota Matrix XR and it does the job. Raises the hitch to a level that i feel a lot more comfortable with for road trips. Great product! 108005
Part appears to be very soldly built. It is exactly as described in their add and look forward to using it to keep my wheelchair carrier from dragging when I leave driveways. 109802
Great product. use it all the time. Absolutely no problems. Very sturdy and solid.we use it for a ramped carrier for my wife's mobility scooter. 246702
by: Kevin S.03/26/2014
Very heavy duty. Just what I needed to get my Carlson Cargo Carrier to ride high enough not to scrape the ground at driveways in a Honda Accord. 122352
by: Phil T06/20/2015
I have a strep driveway and this gets my rack up so I don't scrape. I had to cut 1/2" of the tip of the 1-1/4" side so my pin would line up. 205788
by: Jon A.10/17/2016
Works great to attach and raise a hitch hauler. Was dragging on the ground when going up into a parking lot. Now clears the entrance. 308105
by: Jay L10/03/2016
Works great. I use it to put a 2" bike carrier in a 1 1/4" hitch. And the bonus is that it gets the bike rack off the road further. 303004
Awesome product.. Works perfectly to get closer to vehicle and for increasing clearance of cargo rack from ground... Fast shipping... 100329
by: Dave P.06/05/2014
Just what I needed to put on my 2014 Prius to raise our bicycles higher. Great service, however the shipping was a little high. 134370
by: Donald H.08/03/2013
Item as ordered was exactly what I expected. Excellent quality and it will accomplish the clearance height for my cargo rack. 93047
by: Christian W.09/20/2015
Just what I needed but had to drill an additional 1/2 inch hole about an inch from original hole to clear my plastic bumper. 226639
by: Alex D10/02/2013
Perfect height riser for attaching a hitch basket to an 09 Honda Civic. Excellent construction and would highly recommend. 102319

wow can't believe how fast order was shipped and how fast it got to me and the product was everything I expected it to be 323570
