Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Adapters HTAD Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the inch and a quarter to two inch hitch adapter. This receiver allows you to convert any inch and a quarter class one and class two receiver to a two inch receiver. That way you can easily haul your two inch hitch accessories even though you have an inch and a quarter hitch on your vehicle. It is made from a durable steel construction and features a black powder coated finish to resist rust and corrosion. The inch and a quarter shank on the unit is solid steel for a very strong durable design and the receiver right here measures two inches by two inches. And this does feature a capacity of 300 pounds when it comes to the tongue weight.

A few measurements I want to mention for you real quick. I took a measurement from the center of this pin hole to the center of this pin hole and got a measurement of 7 and 1/4 inches. From very front to very back measures 11 inches.From the center of this pin hole to the back of the shank measures and inch and half. Now, in order for your accessory to work with this unit, you need to make sure that the shank of your accessory is three and 3/8 of an inch or shorter. And that's because that's the amount of clearance or that's the amount of room we have inside this receiver slot.

So, from the back of this unit to the center of that hitch pin hole internally we have three and 3/8 of an inch, so again, your hitch accessory like a bike rack or a cargo carrier, cannot be more than three and 3/8 inches long from the center of the hitch pin hole on your accessory to the end or to the back of the shank, which is the part that slides into the hitch.Now, if it's longer than three and 3/8 inches, it will not work with this adapter, so please keep that in mind. Your pins and clips or pins and locks are not included. This pin hole right here will accept a standard 5/8 inch diameter pin. If you're in need of one, you can find it at Etrailer.com with part number PC3 that part includes a 5/8 inch diameter pin and a clip. This one back here will accept a 1/2 diameter pin and you can find that on our website with part number PC2 and that part number includes a 1/2 inch diameter pin and it also comes with a clip.

Again, durable, steel construction. Black powder coated finishing. Product is made in the USA. Now, please note, this is not designed for towing, so it's designed for use with bike racks and cargo carriers. That information is printed right here on the sticker on top of the product and the tongue weight capacity of your hitch will be reduced by 50% when using an adapter.That's gonna do it for today's look at the inch and a quarter to two inch hitch adapter..

Seems like a decent extender/adapter for my 1 1/4" to 2" hitch needs. 93416

After one year this product continues to work and function as advertised. I use it for lite duty. It provides a platform to which I mount my bike rack via a lite weight trailer hitch. The fit and finish has held up well. Good product, does whats expected.

Comments

I want to adapt my 11/4 hitch to 2 for a Hollywood platform bike rack. However, the hitch adapter I got locally had some play in it. Do you have any movement with your platform bike rack with your adapter? The movement I had was where the adapter slid into the hitch, not with the bike rack.

Product looks good quality. Took an hour to put in. Recommend two man job but jack stands work great. Before removing old bolts used WD 40 to soak them. Tap set would have worked great but muscle works as well on corroded holes. Did not have to jack vehicle. Did in car port. Liked they gave torque specs. Am firm believer in torquing bolts to spec. Received product a day earlier than promised. Liked box was the size of small bike box. Using it initially for 4 bike carrier and can not wait to try it out. Must purchase hitch lock for this vehicle since carrier was used on Jeep. all in all I found everything clear and seller caring of service. Very happy. 405871

Description was perfect on website. I spent hours running around to Home Depot, Menards, Walmart, Ace and all I could find was a hitch adaptor with a hole 3 and 1/4 when I needed 3 and 3/8. I had no idea that there would be a company that was on the internet that sold specialized adaptors. This was handy because the original bike rack I was trying to attach isn't made anymore. Also, the bike rack manufacturer apparently didn't want to have its 2 inch opening reduced to 1 and a 1/4 because of the weight limits for the rack. Your site explains that the weight for the rack should be adjusted for this change, so all is good. 53692

I can't believe how much this thing wobbles inside of my hitch, and how much my accessory wobbles inside of it. Two wobbles don't cancel it and I get wobble-wobble. I have yet to use my accessory because that just won't work out. I'm trying to use the Rhino T-Loader so that I can load a kayak on my roof. Paint also chipped off so easily from playing around with installation; I didn't even USE the accessory yet. For the cost of this chunk of metal, I'd have hoped for better fitment. Most anti-rattle devices only work for securing the accessory-to-hitch end. I'm not quite sure if I can stabilize both ends... 229877

Product was of excelent quality and exactly as described. The good dimensional infomation on eTrailer was most helpful in determining whether this product would work for me. Because of the excellent engineering info on eTrailer, I was able to determine the loading that I will able to carry and I learned a lot about the different class hitches and their ratings which was most helpful. Product arrived very quickly. I am using this product with a bike rack on my 1-1/4" car hitch. Great website and great service. What could be better. I would buy here again. Thanks eTrailer!! 29471

This product is very well built. It's also very heavy. However I bought it thinking I would use this so I could continue to use my 2" bike rack that I would routinely use behind my SUV. It will work but in the end the rack sticks out way too far and I did not get a comfortable feeling about the stress I would place on a class 2 hitch (1.25"). The product itself is great but if your intent is to use it on a bike rack my suggestion is to think it through. If your carrying a good deal of weight centered too far off the back of the car then you might loose stability. 176468

Unfortunately I had to return the product because the 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" shaft was not long enough for me to match or mate its pin hole with the pin hole on the hitch. The 2" x 2" portion would hit the bottom of my rear bumper which prevented the 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" shaft from being inserted all the way into the hitch. It would have worked if the pin hole on the 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" shaft could have been inserted about 1/2" more. Looks like I will have to purchase a brand new bike rack since I will not be able to use the 2" x 2" that I now own. 159091

I needed this product to adapt a standard Honda 1 1/4 inch hitch to a bike rack with a two inch mounting bar. Ordinarily, the hitch bar might have fit the standard Honda mount, but there was a blocking reinforcement bar under the Honda mount. This mount enables me to conform both the existing and bike rack mounts. Note: I carefully measured hole distances from ends of each mount to be sure it fit, which it does. I have no time to test the mount with the full rack load right now, but it seems to be within specified tolerances. 84470

I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla. Shipment was fast even with the holiday. Parts and bolts all securely packed. I also ordered the 1.25 to 2" adapter. Installing: I couldn't get the bolts to catch to screw in so I tapped the weld nuts and that did the trick. Local stores have the single 12-1.25 so I didn't have to buy an entire tap and die set. After that the installation was pretty straight forward. I wish I would have thought to investigate a hitch years ago versus carrying the bikes on a trunk carrier. 403916

This hitch adapter is just what the doctor ordered!! It met my needs in making it possible to "adapt" a rear cargo carrier to our 2007 Ford Explorer. This gives us extra capacity to transport wedding-related items from our home in Columbus, OH to Battle Creek, MI without having to rent a trailer or use two vehicles. Not only that, etrailer.com "performed a miracle" in getting this delivered in 2 days at no extra cost!! GREAT JOB in supplying what we needed, when we needed it, at a price we could afford. 119859

Seems to be a solid product for our purposes. We already had a 2" receiver type bike carrier, but the wife's car can only handle a 1-1/4" hitch. This adapter saved us a good chunk of money on a new bike carrier. It slid in a little tight on the first go, but nothing a little grease couldn't solve. Highly recommended for this type duty. Oh yeah, etrailer.com had what we needed in stock (hitch for a 2010 Malibu LTZ & this adapter) and shipped immediately. Their tracking software was slick, best I've seen. 35463

I purchased this along with a 1.25" hitch for my Prius so that I could use my hitched mount bike rack. Bridget at etrailer.com was very helpful by making sure that I got that right adapter and getting it to me quickly. I ordered this on a Thursday and got it on the next Monday, free shipping! We just traveled from Ohio to St Augustine Florida with our 2 bikes trouble free. 122094

The HTAD Hitch Adapter was purchased to accommodate my 2" bike rack in the 1 1/4" hitch receiver on my new car, dissolving my initial dismay at the size of the freshly-installed hitch.

Arrived quickly. Fit perfectly. Very STURDY piece. The pin and clip were easy to use. This adapter should enable me to use my 2 inch diameter bike rack (which had plenty of life left in it) on the 1 1/4 inch Class I hitch that came with our new car. The seller kept me apprised of the progress of my order and delivery details. Exemplary transaction all around. 47436

I ordered this adapter to allow the use of a bike rack I used on a previous vehicle with a 2" receiver on the new 1 1/4" hitch I was putting on my car. It worked as advertised. Only downside is that the rack sticks out about 6" farther than with no adapter. Not a huge deal, but I would prefer not to have to use an adapter. 224401

by:


WARNING: Does not fit a standard 1-1/4 hitch reciever... at least not without grinding the paint off. It appears the manufacturer cast it to the correct size, then painted it which added just enough so it will not fit. Pulling out the grinder this weekend to resolve the problem. Otherwise seems to be of sturdy construction. 23811

The adapter arrived on time and worked great. I have to compliment eTrailer's customer service for going above and beyond. I needed an anti-rattle clip for my bike rack. It wasn't available in the 1.25 size, but they added it to their inventory amazingly quickly: http://www.etrailer.com/p-RM-061-125.html Good job! 154076

Great, strong quality, but I wish it wasn't so long. My deer hauling hitch tray now hangs a foot off/away from the back of my little 2 door hatchback and with only 4"-6" of ground clearance. Really looks like an odd set-up. I should have measured better before ordering; now will have to only shoot small deer to haul.:-) 8104

Everything was delivered as pictured, service was fast and received in 5 days. This is going to be used for a bike carrier. Bike Carriers are more common in the 2", class IV (4) size that the Class III size of 1:1/4. I would use e-trailer again without question. Thanks for ordering so simple. 18958

It arrived in good shape. But the packaging needs to be done better, since it poked a hole in the cardboard carton. Its exactly as pictured. I must have overlooked that I will need to order a pin for it. Etrailer provides very good updates on the shipping status -- great job there. 98576

Bright for a 1 1/4 hitch on my Fiesta to put my 2 inch bike rack on the car. Solid constructions works as advertised. But.... The adapter does not fit tight in the hitch so the bike rack shakes a bit. I am looking for a locking, anti-rattle solution for it. 11048

The adapter fit perfectly with the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" which I also purchased from etrailer. There was no need to scrape paint or grind metal to make it fit.The customer service from etrailer was excellent. 59468

Outstanding service and prompt delivery. I installed the Draw-Tite hitch and hitch adapter with ease. The instructions were straight forward and detailed. The hitch is installed on a Prius, and i can now use my cargo carrier to haul around my son's wheelchair. 132008

For the 2003 Accord, I would have chosen the shorter (51/2 in) model if there is such a model. This one is too long for my application. Also the appropriate hardware should be included with this price. IE: nut/bolt/washers to secure to trailer hitch. 315438



- HTAD

by:


It scared me at first, I thought the size was wrong because I didn't give it a good shove when I put it on my hitch. This adapter does fit on a class I 1 1/4" hitch as long as you understand the load limit is still for a 1 1/4" hitch, NOT a 2" load. 229080

The hole in the hitch adapter was not centered and I had to drill out the hole in the trailer hitch (about 1/16th) to get the pin inserted. It took about an hour to get right. I'm not very happy with your QA department. 43456

I bought that adapter when we got a new bike rack. Unfortunately, that rack didn’t work out. So, we haven’t used the adapter since. But, it worked fine when we did use it.

  • The bumper isn't the actual issue that Subaru factory hitches have. It can cause a similar-looking issue, however Subaru OEM/Factory hitches are far more shallow than normal 1-1/4 inch hitches, making it difficult to fit bike racks to them. To be perfectly honest, I recommend against using the 1-1/4 to 2 inch hitch expander, part # HTAD on your hitch, as the Subaru Factory hitch is a Class I hitch.

While it is possible to use a hitch adapter like # HTAD or # HT5R in some circumstances to allow use of a 2-inch accessory in a Class I hitch, I do not recommend this because all such adapters cause you to lose half of your hitch capacity due to the additional leverage applied to the hitch from the load being further away from it.

  • Can the Thule T2 Bike Rack Be Used with a Hitch Adapter in a Class I Hitch on a 2012 Toyota Prius
  • Your best option for carrying 2 bikes would be to use a bike rack that is compatible with Class I hitches. When using a hitch adapter, like part # HTAD, to use a 2 inch accessory in a Class I hitch, the capacity of the hitch is reduced by 50 percent. In your case 110 pounds will exceed 50 percent of the 200 pound capacity of any trailer hitch, like the hitch you referenced, # C11276, available for your 2012 Toyota Prius.

For a hitch expander with a 5 inch rise, you could use the Brophy Hitch Adapter 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver with 5 Inch Rise # HT5R. If you want an expander without a rise, you can use the Brophy Hitch Adapter 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver # HTAD. It is important...

  • Class II Ball Mount With 3-1/2 Inch To 5 Inch Drop For Ford Explorer
  • For a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver on your Ford Explorer, we have two ball mounts that fall within the 3-1/2 to 5 inch drop range. The first one is the Draw-Tite Class II Ball Mount, part # 36078. This ball mount has a 4-3/4 inch drop and measures 7-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball mount hole. It has a tongue weight rating of 300 pounds and a towing weight capacity of 3500 pounds. The pin and clip are included with this ball mount. The second ball...

  • Parts Needed to Add Trailer Hitch Load Extender to 2017 Honda Fit
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24920 is confirmed to fit your 2017 Honda Fit and will work well for you. However it's a Class I hitch so the Class II MaxxTow Adapter # MT70032 will not fit in the hitch. They're both 1-1/4 inches but the Draw-Tite has a stopper inside of it to prevent you from overloading the Class I hitch with Class II accessories. Instead you can use the Brophy # HTAD. Then you will be able to install the MaxxTow Load Extender # MT70231. You'll also need to be mindful...

  • Is it Safe to Use a Trailer Hitch Adapter # HTAD on a Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2010 Kia Soul
  • It really depends on what you want to use the hitch for if you need an adapter. The trouble is that using an adapter like # HTAD or another adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. The hitches for your 2010 Kia Soul are all class I hitches with a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. Using an adapter will cut that down to 100 pounds. If you are wanting to use a bike rack or cargo carrier, you will be limited to carrying just 2 bikes and the combined...

  • Adapter to Use 2 Inch Bike Rack in Factory 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch on 2015 Subaru Outback
  • You would have to use adapter # HTAD. But please note that the use of an adapter reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. The combined weight of the rack and the bikes cannot exceed the reduced tongue weight. The other issue is that if the factory 1-1/4 inch hitch on your 2015 Subaru Outback is a Class I, you are limited to just 2 bikes because a Class I hitch cannot take the stress of additional bikes. It puts too much torque on the hitch, like using a...

  • Recommended Wheelchair Carrier for 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch on 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
  • You can use an adapter like the Brophy # HTAD in order to use 2 inch hitch-mounted accessories with the 1-1/4 inch receiver on your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer. An important factor to keep in mind when using this or any other hitch adapter is that it will reduce the tongue weight capacity by 50%. This means that if the trailer hitch on your Mountaineer has a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds, it will be reduced to 100 pounds when using the adapter. The MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier...

  • Is The Hidden Hitch Adapter # 80303 The Shortest 1-1/4 to 2 Inch Hitch Adapter Available
  • The Hidden Hitch 1-1/4 Inch to 2 Inch Hitch Adapter, part # 80303, is our shortest adapter, but can only be used with a Class II receiver. If you have a Class I receiver, you will need part # HTAD. Part # 80303 will stick out about 1-1/4 inch less, than # HTAD. You can check the label on your hitch or send us the hitch number to find out if it is Class I or Class II. I am including a link to a FAQ page that will help describe the different classes of trailer hitches. Please note,...

  • Recommended Flagpole Holder for 1-1/4 Trailer Hitch
  • Don't worry, I have a solution for you. The Camco Flagpole Holder will fit into shanks of 2 inches but what you can do is use an adapter to reduce the opening to 1-1/4 to fit your 2001 Volkswagen Jetta hitch. This adapter # HTAD will be compatible with both a Class I and Class II trailer hitch. It will reduce the amount of weight that can be loaded into the receiver by 50 percent. This means if your tongue weight was 200lbs then you will be reduced to 100lbs, which should still work...

  • Can Class II or III Hitch Accessories be Adapted to Fit a Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2010 Honda Fit
  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24826, for your 2010 Honda Fit is a Class I hitch. This means that in addition to the 1-1/4 inch receiver, it has a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. Anything attached to the trailer hitch, in this case a bike rack and bikes, will count against that tongue weight capacity. The use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity by 50 percent, bringing it down to 100 pounds. The weight of the bike rack and bikes would have to be less than 100 pounds...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Mazda 3 Hatchback to Carry 2 Bikes
  • For your 2015 Mazda 3 hatchback I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24914. It does not require a stabilization strap when using a bike rack. Like you said you would need an adapter, # HTAD. However, the use of an adapter reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. For Draw-Tite hitch # 24914 the use of the adapter takes the tongue weight capacity from 200 to 100 pounds. the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes cannot exceed 100 pounds. If the bikes...

  • Hitch Pin Hole to Receiver Tube Stop Measurement of Draw-Tite Class I Receiver # 24880
  • The stop punched into the receiver tube is 1-5/8 inches rearward from the center of the hitch pin hole or 3-7/8 inches rearward from the front of the receiver tube (see photo). The stop will prevent use of an adapter meant for the higher weight rated Class II receiver. The Brophy Hitch Adapter we offer, part # HTAD is compatible with Class I receivers and would work with the # 24880. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole in the shank to the end of the shank is 1-1/2 inches. Keep...

  • 1-1/4-Inch to 2-Inch Hitch Adapter for Use on Subaru Forester
  • 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...

  • Distance from Center of Hitch Pin Hole to Back of 2 Inch Portion of Hitch Adapter # HTAD
  • You are correct. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on the Adapter # HTAD, to the 2 inch to 1-1/4 inch transition point is 3-3/8 inches. On your bike rack, it the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to end of the shank is 3-1/8 inches, you will have 1/2 inch to spare and the bike rack will fit. I have included a link to a video review of this adapter below. I must also mention that the use of this adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Electric Bike Pedego Interceptor Ebike
  • E-bikes are becoming more popular every day, so the bike rack options are increasing just as rapidly. We've got a couple of options that may work for your needs. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 that you mentioned, # HR1450E will not fit in your 1 1/4" hitch. You could use a hitch adapter like # HTAD, but this would reduce your hitch's capacity by half and you may not be able to carry the weight of 2 bikes. Instead, I recommend getting a rack that is built for your smaller hitch....

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon

If it has single exhaust, there is no hitch option available. But, if it has quad exhaust, you can use Curt hitch # C11120. I have included a link to the installation details for you. Curt hitch # 11317, fits a 2008 to 2012 Subaru Impreza Sedan, but not the STi models. It does not fit the 5 door model (wagon). Curt hitch # C11120 fits a 2011...
