Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Reducer Trailer Hitch Receiver Review

Today I will be taking a quick look at the Brophy Hitch Reducer from a two inch to an inch and a quarter. This is part number HT02. We'll go ahead and show you how it performs. Here at the back of our ATV, our ATV does have a two inch hitch, which is installed on the back of our chassis. The adapter sleeve is going to work really well, because it allows us to install and inch and a quarter accessory onto our ATV. You can see that it has two pinholes here in the sleeve and that's going to allow us to actually slide it into the shank of our two inch hitch. Our hitch reducer does come with a half inch hitch pin, which is going to be used to install the sleeve to our two inch hitch. This is a great way to install an inch and a quarter accessory.

For example, if you have a two inch receiver installed on your ATV, but you have other inch and a quarter accessories, this little adapter sleeve is a great way to just slide it into your hitch instead of having to switch out receivers. You can see it is coated in a black powder coat finish that is going to help resist rust and corrosion. Now we have this other pin which is a standard 5/8 inch pin and clip that are sold separately. That's going to install your two inch accessories. For example, there is one pin that does come with this and that pin is usually designed to secure the sleeve to the receiver so that you will need an anti-rattle device or some sort of hitch pin and clip to secure your accessory. Now you can see that we have our inch and a quarter accessory, we're going to slide the shank into the tapered end of our sleeve. Now you can see that it's going to have a smaller diameter on one side of the sleeve and it's going to have a regular two inch diameter on the other side.

We'll slide this in and basically just line up the hitch pin hole with our accessory and the hitch pin hole with our adapter sleeve. Now that we have our accessory installed, we'll go ahead and show you how it performs. Now to complete today's review of the Brophy Hitch Reducer from a two inch hitch to an inch and a quarter, part number HT02. .

E-trailer website made it easy to find what I needed and compare. Best priceI found, and the pin was included. Products I ordered were shipped and delivered promptly. The hitch adaptor works great 59881

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

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

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

Once again the service and prompt delivery of our order by etrailer was superb. The extension is just the right size and solidly made. I have no fears using it to carry our bike rack. 64103

I was actually surprised to find this. My local hardware stores and farm stores didn't have a hitch reducer. One guy told me he thought that they didn't make them. I received this one in good condition and without delay. 147337

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

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

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 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

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 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

Nothing much to say really, works as expected with my 1.25" bike rack. 572900

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

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



- HT02
by:

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:

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

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. I quickly found the right hitch reducer on the etrailer.com website and the product was delivered in-time for my trip and worked as expected. We did plenty of biking.Thank you etrailer.com 147843



- HT02
by:

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

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

I bought this part to adapt a Class 3 Hitch with 2" receiver to work with a bike rack that fits a 1 1/4" receiver. It fits perfectly and works great! 422169

Kinda pricey, but quality is worth it. Perfect size except for pin hole for 1.25, needs to be 2/16 further out board. Cannot use socket to tighten my Thule hitch bike rack to hitch extender 432787

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:

Works as advertised. Bought an anti-rattle receiver lock to address the play. 351463



- HT02
by:

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

The adapter has worked just as needed to reduce my regular hitch so it accepts the smaller arm of my bike carrier.

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

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



- HT02
by:

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

I purchased a hitch to mount my hitch mount bike rack. I fully intended to purchase the Class II, 1.25" hitch, but after speaking with the e-trailer rep it made more sense to go with the Class III hitch and use a reducer for the bike rack. It gives me more flexibility with my hitch. Thanks e-trailer guys for asking the right questions and making sure I had the correct product for my needs. 625442



- HT02
by:

Great product if you intend to use it as a small extension as well as a reducer you’ll need 2 pins, if you live in any city I would recommend both a dedicated 5/8 locking pin and a sleeved 1/22 - 5/8 locking pin. The sleeved version gives you the option of using as an extension but if you just want to use a single lock most 1 1/4 hitches require a 1/22 locking pin. If you buy the non sleeved version it will be too short to go through the entire receiver/ adapter/ ball mount assembly forcing you to use 2. All of this is available on etrailer, buy it now and be prepared not surprised. Trust me, you will get robbed at your local no service auto parts store. 623190

I received this hitch reducer and it fits well. One thing I did not think about was the hole and pin for the 1 and 1/4 inch hole. It has a larger hole matching the other hole for the 2 inch and shouldn't it have a smaller hole that would match the smaller hitch? 511920

I bought this to use with a Thule T2 Classic, which has a 1" hitch to fit my 2" receiver on our truck. This reducer works very well for this application. The T2 though uses a metric M12 threaded bolt to attach. You will need a longer bolt and lock washers to accommodate the now wider span with the addition of the reducer. There is very little wobble with the T2 attached, but there is some. They make bolts that can be attached to eliminate the wobble. 497431

This adapter did not work for me. I bought the adapter to accommodate a Kuat Bike rack. The adapter did not hold the rack tight and steady. It was very wobbly. I did find an adapter with a spring that tightened down to the male end of the Kuat Bike rack which worked amazingly. 467667

  • Loaded Trailer Hitch on 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack Flexes and Makes a Lot of Noise
  • Trailer hitches have to be able to flex. They all do. They absorb stress and flex back into position when that stress is relieved. The noise you are hearing is likely something rubbing against the hitch. The Draw-Tite hitch # 24949 is almost completely hidden from access though without removing the rear fascia. It would be worth checking though to make sure all the bolts are torqued down to the specs indicated in the instructions. You could also push down on the receiver to simulate...

You would either want the 2 inch shank # 8880580 or the 1-1/4 inch shank # 8880581. An adapter sleeve just won't hold that particular rack well.

This hitch's high tongue weight capacity of 525-lbs and its easy no-drill installation make it my best suggestion for you Honda. The linked photo shows it installed.

  • Starting with the hitch adapter for the 2 inch hitch receiver on your vehicle, I actually recommend going with the Brophy Hitch Reducer # HT02 instead of the Tow Ready # 80300 that you referenced.

Depending on the weight of your bike rack and bikes, this option may result in you overloading the capacity of the trailer hitch. For example, if the hitch...

You could reduce the hitch opening size of this hitch down to a 1-1/4 inch hitch with the sleeve adapter part # HT02 though.

I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13382. You can use a hitch reducer like the Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HT02 to give you the 1-1/4 inch opening if you wish.

If you can tell me which bike rack you have I would be glad to see if they have a specific 1-1/4" to 2" adapter but if not you can use part # HT02. The other two trailer hitch receiver options...

  • Bolt for part # Y8890174
  • Hello, The adapter # Y8890174 that you referenced is specifically designed to fit the Yakima Flipside, DoubleDown and StickUp Bike Carriers. If you can send me a picture of your bike rack I can confirm if it is one of these or if we have an adapter that will work for your application.

  • Which Trailer Hitch Has The Most Ground Clearance For a 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13377 and the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76177 which are the two trailer hitch options for your 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport have the same ground clearance measurement. This ground clearance measurement will be around 12-1/2" from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube opening or 10" from the ground to the bottom of the receiver tube collar. Please note that these measurements are not exact and can vary slightly...

  • Is Draw-Tite Class III Hitch 75784 Compatible with J-Pin Locking Stabilizer 63201
  • Draw-Tite Hitch # 75784 is a confirmed fit on your 2017 Acura RDX and this hitch is indeed compatible with the J-pin locking stabilizer # 63201. This will work along with Reducer Sleeve # HT02 to allow your 1-1/4-inch bike rack to be installed in this 2-inch hitch. The J-pin will stabilize the reducer in the hitch tube but it will not do anything for the potential rattle of the bike rack's 1-1/4-inch shank in the reducer's opening. You may care to use a secondary anti-rattle device...

  • Recommended Towing Setup For 2017 Audi Q7
  • For your 2017 Audi Q7, if you don't already have a hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76076. This hitch receiver is a black powder coat finish over and e-base coat for excellent rust protection. For your wiring, I recommend the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and Installation Kit # 119250KIT if you don't have the factory tow package. This harness uses zero-contact-interface...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2016 Lexus RX 450H
  • For your 2016 Lexus RX 450H, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75540 over the Curt # C13282 based on capacity. Both are great hitches confirmed to fit your 450H, but neither of which have a CE mark. Both are compatible with European style ball mounts like # C45572 when you use a hitch reducer like # HT02.

  • Storage Options for the Thule T2 Pro XTS # TH9035XTS
  • One of the best features of the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 is how compact it can become when folded up for storage. I do have a solution for you to safely store the Thule T2 Pro XTS # TH9035XTS, but unfortunately the shank does not fold up like the EasyFold XT. To store your bike rack we have the Hollywood Racks Rack Valet # HRRV-1 which will allow you to easily maneuver your bike rack around your garage or storage space. This storage option has a 100 lb weight capacity, and the bike...

  • Trailer Hitch that Doesn't Require Stabilizer Strap for Bike Rack on 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
  • What you can do is use Curt trailer hitch # C13383, which does not require a stabilization strap, with a reducer sleeve, # HT02, to use 1-1/4 inch accessories. The use of this reducer sleeve will not reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch like other adapters will. This set up will allow you to use the hitch for a bike rack on your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid without needed the stabilization strap.

  • Thule T2 Pro Compatibility with Reducer Sleeve from 2 Inch to 1-1/4 Inch
  • The Brophy Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HT02 has a measurement of 1-1/2 inches from the end of the 1-1/4 inch reducer to the center of the hitch pin hole. This will make it compatible with the Thule T2 Pro # TH9035XT or # TH9035XTS which requires 1-1/2 inches to hitch pin hole center for warranty compatible fit. I recommend using the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232 to secure the reducer and deter theft.

  • Adapter Needed to Fit 1-1/4 RockyMounts MonoRail to a 2 Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • The adapter sleeve that I recommend using is the Brophy Hitch Reducer # HT02. This will reduce your 2" hitch receiver to a 1-1/4" receiver that your RockyMounts MonoRail # RKY10003 can mount into. The adapter comes with a hitch pin and clip but I recommend also getting an anti-rattle locking hitch pin like part # 63232 to help reduce the play of your bike rack. I have attached some review videos for you to check out as well.
