Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Adapters - Hitch Expander - HT58 Review

Today well be reviewing part number HT58. This is the Brophy hitch adapter, thats going to convert your inch and five-eighths hitch to a two-inch hitch. It has a really nice black powder coated finish thats going to help stand up against rust and corrosion.Keep in mind that this extender or this adapter is for use with bike carriers and cargo carriers. Probably need to stay away from some larger, heavier items, so its not to be used for your regular towing or with snowplows. When using this adapter, your weight capacity of the hitch will be reduced by fifty percent. You also need to use a hitch pin and clip, that is sold separately.

This is available as part number PC3. This part right here is the part thats going to slide into the receiver tube of your hitch, and heres your two-inch conversion, so youll be able to slide in your accessory. Youll secure your accessory by using the pin and clip, and you can also secure this to your hitch by using the pin and clip. Now Id like to go over some basic measurements. The overall length of our adapter is right around eleven inches. From the center of one hole to the center of the other, we have about seven and a quarter inches.

The receiver sleeve measures at six and a half inches, and the part that slides into the hitch on our vehicle is right around four inches. Thats going to complete todays review of part number HT58, the Brophy hitch adapter, thats going to convert your inch and five eighths hitch to a two-inch hitch. .

Fits and works great. You can't get a 1"5/8 receiver hitch since they don't use them anymore. 272954

- HT58

I ordered this adaptor because the 1 5/8" receiver welded to my '99 Jeep Wrangler was useless. Nothing is 1 5/8". Because the Jeep has been on more than it's fair share of truly crappy goat paths, the receiver had been tweaked a bit out of shape, and the adaptor didn't fit. However, a few minutes with a grinding wheel applied to the adaptor remedied the situation. The Brophy adaptor now fits just fine, I can now use 2" hitches, and I am a happy camper. 257659

Ask the Experts about this Brophy Hitch Adapters

  • Hitch Adapter Recommendation for a 1-5/8 inch Hitch
    The only thing we offer for a 1-5/8 inch hitch is an adapter like part # HT58 that will convert it to a 2 inch hitch. Adapters like this do cut the capacity of the hitch in half. I also attached a link to a page that has all of the 2 inch hitch ball mounts we carry.

  • How Long is the 1-5/8 Inch Portion of Brophy Trailer Hitch Adapter # HT58
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled Brophy hitch adapter # HT58 to take some measurements. The overall length of the 1-5/8 inch part is 4-3/8 from the end to the larger part but 4-1/8 inches when measuring to the weld bead. The overall length is approximately 10-3/4 to 10-7/8 inches. From the center of one hitch pin hole to the center of the other it is 7-1/4 inches.

  • Will the Brophy Hitch Adapter # HT58 Convert a 1-5/8 Inch Hitch to a 2 Inch Opening
    The Hitch Adapter # HT58 that you referenced is designed to be inserted into hitches with a 1-5/8 inch opening to convert them to a hitch with a 2 inch opening. So yes, the small end of the adapter is 1-5/8 inches and should work well for you.

  • Is Hitch Adapter Available To Reduce 2 Inch Receiver To 1-5/8 Inch For Bike Carrier
    We do not offer a hitch adapter that will reduce the 2 inch hitch on your new vehicle to accommodate the 1-5/8 inch shank on your bike rack. Anytime you use an adapter on your hitch it will reduce the load carrying capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. My recommendation is to find a bike carrier that will mount to your new 2 inch receiver. If you want to send me information about your vehicle and how many bikes you wish to carry I can make some recommendations for you. I have attached...

  • Distance from Pin Hole to End of Hitch Adapter 1-5/8" to 2" # HT58
    The distance from the pin hole of the Hitch Adapter 1-5/8" to 2" # HT58 on the smaller end back to the end of the shank is 1-5/8 inches. I attached a picture that shows this dimension as well as a review video as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Adapter to Go to a 2 Inch Receiver on a 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo
    Trailer hitch receivers on passenger vehicles come in 1-1/4 inch, 2 inch, and 2-1/2 inch. Make sure you are measuring the width of the receiver opening, not the outside width. If it turns out you have a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening then you would need adapter # HTAD. Please note that the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent.

  • Is Locking Hitch Pin Included With Brophy Hitch Adapter
    The Brophy Hitch Adapter, part # HT58 does not come with a hitch pin or lock included. This adapter is not intended to be used for towing or for snow plows, but can work with hitch mounted bike racks and cargo carriers. When using this adapter, you will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. For a locking hitch pin I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # e98882. If you are looking for a non-locking hitch pin I recommend part # PC3. This includes...

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Compatibility with 2007 Nissan Altima
    The MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier w/ 48" Long Ramp - 2" Hitches - Folding - Steel - 500 lbs # MT70106 is not a good fit for a 2007 Nissan Altima. The hitch options for your vehicle are either Draw-Tite # 24796 or Curt # C11352 which are both only a Class I rated hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. These both have a max weight capacity of 200 lbs and would require an adapter like # HT58 which would reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50%. That would give you a total...
