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..

This is a perfect fit. I thought I had wasted money on my class 1 hitch since none of the 2 inch adapters would fit. But this adapter saved me it works with class 1 and 2 hitches. From my research it is the only one available. Many thanks to etrailer. 567238

Product was exactly what I needed and to tell the truth, was quite a bit more heavy duty that I had envisioned. I am very enthusiastic and extremely satisfied with the operation of the company and the product. 67056

It did the job I wanted it to. Since then I have traded cars went from afull size Mercury to a VW Passat so I am not using it at this time. I lentit to my brother in law and he raved about it also - worked well for him.Hope this helps.

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

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

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

Great product at a great price. Installation was easy and took less than an hour even including the time to jack up the car and set jack stands to get room to work. Note that you do not HAVE to remove and cut the heat shield if you don't want to; however, the hitch can rub against the shield when it is loaded (with a bike rack in my case) and make a minor squeaking noise. Don't forget to get a stabilizer/anti-wobble/tightener if you're using a bike rack or similar carrier. Depending on your hitch, rack, or adapter there can be a lot of play in it when hitting bumps in the road causing the bike and rack to move around a lot. 499856

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

Comments

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.

I'm using this hitch adaptor for transporting our canoe with our Prius. My main concern was the fit with the carrier. It fit like a charm. Also, the finish and welds are clean and well executed which makes it easy to attach our canoe loader. 564039

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

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

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

Very heavy duty. Will use it with a bike rack I had for another vehicle that had a 2" receiver. 98904


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 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

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

I am very pleased with the Hitch Adapter that I just received from etrailer.com. It is exactly as pictured online and well made. I have already installed it on my car. Until I went on your website I was not even aware that this item existed. It solved a problem for me to be able add an accessory to my car hitch that I needed. I also appreciate the timely manner that it was delivered. 69735

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

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

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

Fit my new Prius hitch perfectly. Only concern in using one of these adapters is to not overload. I'm pretty confident the whole setup will work fine for the hitch mounted bike rack we already have. No worries. 559136


Comments

Just be aware that using this adapter will lower the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by half. The tongue weight on a Class I hitch used on your Prius is 200 lbs, so using the adapter will lower that to 100 lbs. This will mean that the weight of the bike rack and the bikes carried upon it cannot exceed 100 lbs.

Comments

Just fine. There have been no issues. I might suggest one product design modification. It has not been an issue, but I think that changing to a pin that actually has a hole in it to place the cotter key to lock the pin in place would be better and less likely to fall out.

Do you have a question about this Hitch Adapter?


  • Hitch Adapter Needed for a Class I Trailer Hitch
  • The Hitch Adapter 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch, item # 80303, has a longer shank on it so that it can not be installed in a lower capacity Class I hitch. Class I hitches have a stop inside the receiver to keep higher capacity Class II accessories from being installed in them, so they are not overloaded. The Hitch Adapter 1-1/4 to 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver, item # HTAD, is designed for use in both a 1-1/4 inch Class I and Class II hitch so it may work for your application. We...

  • 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. I recommend the Thule Doubletrack Pro, # TH9054, which is compatible...

  • 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...

  • Bike Rack for a 2018 Subaru Outback with Factory/OEM Hitch and Hitch Expander
  • 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. Moving the distance of any non-trailer load can risk or cause damage to the hitch. Additionally,...

If the combination of weight for your bike and 2 inch rack is below this then a 2 inch adapter will work for you.

I'd recommend the Curt # C18110, which is compatible with the Class II hitch you're interested in and features an angled shank that would provide over a 3 inch rise for improved ground clearance.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatibility With 2 Inch Accessories on a Toyota Prius

There is not a 2 inch option for any of these vehicles because they aren't rated for towing or carrying the capacity of a 2 inch receiver. The manufacturers are attempting to protect users from harming their vehicle by only offering the capacities that are appropriate in the smaller size hitch receiver opening. You can use a hitch adapter...

  • 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 Cargo Carrier and Bag for 55 lb Portable Power Wheelchair on 2016 Ford Mustang
  • For a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver, your options are definitely more limited. There are no cargo carriers with ramps available for that size, so you will need to use a hitch expander like # HTAD. Then for a carrier you will need a lightweight option because the adapter will reduce your hitch's 200 lb tongue weight capacity by up to 50%. For your carrier, the best option is the MaxxTow 27x47 Cargo Carrier w/ Pivoting Ramp # MT70100 that weighs 54.5 lbs. To keep your wheelchair clean, I...

  • Trailer Hitch Ball Shank Size and Use of Hitch Adaptrers on a 2010 Toyota Prius
  • Class 1 receiver hitches use a 3/4 inch ball shank size. I would recommend item # 19256, for a 1-7/8 inch ball for your hitch or the item # 19258, 2 inch ball. 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch adapters like the Hitch Adapter 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver, item # HTAD, are not to be used for towing because the use of an adapter significantly reduces the tongue capacity of the trailer hitch and puts excess stress on the hitch if used for towing due to the extended length...

  • Availability of Class 2 Hitch with 2 Inch Receiver for 2007 Volvo XC70
  • The available trailer hitches for a 2007 Volvo XC70 are all class II hitches with 1-1/4 inch hitch receivers. These trailer hitches have a gross trailer weight capacity of 3,500 pounds and a tongue weight capacity of either 300 or 350 pounds. You could go with an adapter like the Brophy # HTAD which converts a 1-1/4 inch receiver to a 2 inch receiver. However, I do not recommend it because it will reduce your tongue weight capacity by half. If you decide to go with a Class II hitch,...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Options for a 2004 Cadillac DeVille
  • The only trailer hitches available for the 2004 Cadillac DeVille are Class II trailer hitches. I have included a link to them for you to the right. I am assuming you need a Class III hitch because you need the 2 inch receiver for an accessory of some kind. You may be able to still use a 2 inch accessory by using an adapter, # HTAD, but keep in mind that the use of an adapter reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. Curt hitch # C12058 has the highest...

  • Using Trailer Hitch Adapter to Expand 1-1/4 Inch Receiver for Use with 2 Inch Accessories
  • As you mentioned, using a trailer hitch adapter like the MaxxTow # MT70032 in order to use 2 inch hitch accessories with your 1-1/4 inch receiver opening will reduce the hitch tongue weight capacity by 50%. As long as you remain under this reduced capacity with your bike and bike rack, this will be perfectly safe to use. I just recommend adding a stabilizing strap like the Curt # 18050 to reduce any added movement that the adapter might cause. Keep in mind that this particular adapter...

  • Trailer Hitch to Carry a Saris Hitch Mount Bike Rack with 2" Shank with a 2017 Subaru Legacy
  • We actually have a solution for your 2017 Subaru Legacy to carry your Saris bike rack without the use of an adapter! The Curt Trailer Hitch # C12298 that you referenced fits a 2010 - 2014 Subaru Legacy so it won't be compatible with your 2017 model. If you like the Curt look then you would want to go with the Curt # 13390 instead which is a fit for your newer model year and has a 2" receiver. Curt does require that the stabilizer strap # 18050 be used per their warranty so if you'd...

  • 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...

  • Availability of 2 Inch Receiver Hitch for 2009 Toyota Matrix XRS
  • There are no 2 inch hitches available for a 2009 Toyota Matrix, however we do have a solution for you. We have 1-1/4 inch hitches for your Matrix and a nice adapter for making your 2 inch bike rack work with 1-1/4 inch receivers. First you will need a hitch. The Draw-Tite, part # 24812, has a high customer rating and would work just fine for a bike rack and includes a pin and clip. We even have a video of one of these hitches being installed on a 2009 Matrix, I have added a link to it. Since...

  • Can a 2 Inch Cargo Carrier be Used on a 2014 Mazda 6
  • All of the trailer hitches for the 2014 Mazda 6 are Class I trailer hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers. The only way to use a 2 inch cargo carrier would be to use an adapter # HTAD. The problem with using an adapter is that it reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent from 200 to just 100 pounds. This means the combined weight of the carrier and cargo cannot exceed 100 pounds. A better solution is to install a trailer hitch, # 24908, and then use a Class I...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon
  • The 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX has different configurations and depending on which one you have will determine which hitch, if one is available, fits. 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Use a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Cover in a 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • All of the hitch covers for Rice and Rutgers are for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. But do not worry, you can still use any of them in a 1-1/4 inch hitch as long as you use an adapter like # HTAD. This unit has a 1-1/4 inch shank but a 2 inch receiver allowing you to use a 2 inch hitch cover. For Rutgers we have # AMG100468 that you have referenced. For Rice we have # HCC2447, and # AMG100475.

  • Recommended Hitch Adapter for Yakima Holdup Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier
  • The Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve for Saris 1-1/4" Hitch Bike Racks # SA3032 is not the best option for you. There is not a shank adjustment sleeve like that for your Yakima Holdup. 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. The expander you referenced using like # HTAD is an option, but it will allow more sway as you mentioned and it will reduce the tongue weight capacity...
