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. .

After a year I haven't had any problems with the hitch adapter or the bike rack that it's mounted to. I appreciate the year out follow up, and would like to say that I appreciate the care and concern for your customers.

The product arrived with several scratches which may have been caused by the pin hitting the reducer during shipping. It is mainly cosmetic, but I was expecting a scratch free product. The reducer does functionally work so I am satsified.


Comments
I apologize for the scratches that your product arrived with. etrailer.com takes care of any damaged items that arrive to you. It is best to cover any scratches with anti-corrosive paint to keep rust away.

I have been using it to adapt my older bike rack (1-1/2 inch) to my newer car which has a 2" hitch on it. It still works and looks like new over many trips these past months.

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.

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

I have used the reducer carrying my two bikes on a Kuat rack for over 800 miles without problems. I did put two pennies on one side where there was slack between the reducer and the sleeve. Without it, the rack bounced around a lot more. Well made and will last for ever.

Heavy duty and will works perfect for our bike rack. Easy install.

The service from etrailer is exceptional! I needed this adapter for our 5th Wheel RV. We have a bike rack and the 2” receiver hitch needed to be 1.25 for the bike rack. The original was adapted with a rubber reducer but it wobbled way to much. So the fix was a adapter sleeve. I was pleased to find on on etrailer. However, the price was high. I bought it anyway and then still had to shim the bike rack and the adapter to make a tight fit. It works however for the 60+ $ I paid it should have fit the receiver better and the bike rack better.



- 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.

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.

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

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 . . .



- 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.



- HT02
by:

This product has worked out perfectly for me. My bike rack adaptor broke and I was unable to use it until I received this part from etrailer. Now my bike rack is back in operation and fits perfectly into the small (1-1/4") end of the HT02 . I am able to easily remove my bike rack from my truck now.



- HT02
by:

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.



- HT02
by:

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.



- HT02
by:

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.



- 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.



- 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.



- HT02
by:

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?

  • How To Use 1-1/4" Yakima Dr. Tray Bike Rack with 2" Hitch
    The adapter I recommend using to convert the 1-1/4" shank on the Yakima Dr. Tray for use with a 2" hitch is the Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # HT02. This is really the only way to use this rack with a 2" hitch. The above won't reduce weight capacity either since it does not extend the connection point away from the vehicle too far. Please note you will need a hitch pin to secure the reducer, I recommend the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches part # e98880.

You cant use the RockyMounts adapter sleeve # RKY54FR is because the shank does not have a smaller threaded hole to hold it into place. If you haven't already bought the 1-1/4" version of the Yakima OnRamp # Y96FR you can get the 2" version # Y36FR.

This allows using only one adapter and additional adapters may weaken the tongue weight of your trailer hitch so I don't recommend using two. This adapter is rated for a maximum tongue weight of 1,200 lbs.

    Depending on the bike rack and how it is designed to attach to the trailer hitch you could use the part # HT02 as it is the most universal option we have. This is basically a sleeve that will fit the 2 inch hitch and turn it into a 1-1/4 inch hitch. If your rack uses a standard hitch pin or a threaded hitch pin this should work well for you, but if it uses a different style of attachment like a tightening knob that pins the rack into the hitch this probably wouldn't work well.

  • Recommended Hitch Reducer and Lock for Thule Bike Rack
    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. The reason for this is that the Tow Ready adapter, when in use, is going to reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50%. 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...

If you have a lock for your bike rack then you may also be interested in purchasing the Let's Go Aero Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232.

  • Hitch Adapter Recommendation to Convert 1-1/4 in Hitch to 2 inch Hitch
    The Hitch Adapter part # HT02 that you referenced is actually designed to go the opposite direction you would need. It is designed to fit 2 inch hitches and reduce them down to 1-1/4 inch hitches. Instead you would want the # HTAD. This product will take your 1-1/4 inch hitch and allow a 2 inch hitch accessory to be used. This will cut your hitch tongue weight capacity in half though as that is the nature of these adapters. I attached an FAQ article on them for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Hitch Reducer to Reduce 2 inch Receiver Opening to 1-1/4 Inches
    For a hitch reducer that will reduce your 2 inch trailer hitch receiver to 1-1/4 inches, I recommend the Brophy Hitch Reducer # HT02. The great thing about this product is that because of its design, it will not reduce the tongue weight capacity of your hitch like other adapters will. Once installed, you will be able to use your 1-1/4 inch hitch accessories with your 2 inch trailer hitch. I have attached a video demonstration of this product for you to check out.
