Video Transcript for Buyers Products Receiver Tube Adapter Review

Hi everyone. Adam with Today we're going to be taking a look at the Buyers Products sleeve converter. Basically what this is going to do, it's going to allow all of your 2" hitch accessories to be able to fit into your 2-1/2" hitch receiver. So if you have multiple cars, you got a work truck that's got a 2-1/2" and you got an SUV that has a 2", you don't have to worry about buying two of those products. All you have to do is buy one of these converter sleeves.

It's just going to go onto the stem of your accessory and you can just fish it in there and line up the holes like so. You can put your hitch pin through.This is really, really simple. This is basically just going to give you more usability out of all of your hitch mounted accessories. If you have a really nice hitch ball mount like this, you might want to be using it on all of your other towing jobs you may have. So having this, it's a very, very inexpensive way to get this hitch to fit both sizes.

This is a pretty, pretty top of the line hitch and I honestly wouldn't want to buy two of these. So this sleeve is definitely going to help you do that. And I would just suggest it just to save a little bit of money.So the Buyers Products converter is going to be made of a carbon steel construction with a zinc plated finish to it. So it's going to resist rust and corrosion over time. We do have a lot of different converters here at

Blue Ox does make one that's powder-coated. So if that's going to look better with your vehicle, that's totally, totally your call. I do suggest grabbing one that's just straight up metal just because over time I've found that the finish on these do kind of scratch away and they don't really have a corrosion resistant finish underneath this powder coat. So over time it'll scratch and it might start rusting over a little bit. So basically I think the Buyers Products is going to be able to get the job done as are all of these converters.

But this one I think is going to look better over time.So one thing I did notice is the placement of the holes here. So when we put the Buyers Products sleeve in our hitch, we had a little bit of overhang. So from the center of our hitch pin hole, which is going to be about 5/8" in diameter, we are going to have about 3-1/2" to the longer side here. And on our Blue Ox, we are going to have about 4" from the middle of the hitch pin hole all the way to the outer edge on the longer side here. And on the other side from the center to the shorter end here on the Blue Ox about an 1-3/4". And then on our Buyers Products it is going to be about 2-1/2". So that's something to think about, if you don't want it to have it sticking out a little bit, you might want to go with the powder coated Blue Ox here because it will stick out a little bit less and you won't see it as much because of the black powder coated finish.And the overall length is going to be a little bit different too. On our Blue Ox it's going to be about 5-3/4". And on our Buyers Products is going to be right at 6".Well everyone, thanks for watching and taking a look at the Buyers Products 2-1/2" hitch receiver converter sleeve.

Buyers Products 2-1/2" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter - 337RTA252

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (41 Customer Reviews)


Does the job - easiest way to line up the holes, is to slide it on your hitch first, hold it in place, then slide the whole unit into the truck receiver.


Really like the video Etrailer made about the two different reducers they had! Excellent info!
Also got the item fairly fast!


Excellent customer service! Baily did a great job recommending the correct hitch reducer for my wife's truck and we received the part in just a few days. I highly recommend eTrailer for all your towing needs!


Recently upgraded trucks and the HD has a bigger receiver. Pretty nice but mine was for a 2"....not a problem with this sleeve it's the perfect upgrade and all you have to do for the explanation why is watch the video....again watch the video. This is definitely the sleeve to have if your in my predicament.


Fast and friendly service. Recommend to anyone who tows.


It fit well, and does the job we bought it for. We bought a new F250, and didn't know the hitch was 2 1/2 ...

  • Is There A Clevis Style Ball Mount Available For A 2-1/2 Hitch
    I do have something similar to the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount/Clevis/Pintle # AMCC2 designed for a 2-1/2" hitch, but this is currently only offered in 2". With that said, the Shocker XR Adjustable Clevis Mount # SHK85ZR is designed for 2-1/2" hitches and will also offer 4" of rise or drop if needed. It is also rated a bit higher at 12,000 pounds, but the pin holes will be 1-1/4" in diameter, as opposed to the 1" diameter ones on the # AMCC2. As a side note, I did talk to Convert-A-Ball...

  • Blue Ox Weight Distribution Hitch for 15,000 Pound Toy Hauler, Plus extras
    The Blue Ox # BXW1500 is a weight distribution hitch rated for up to 1,500 pounds tongue weight and 15,000 pounds of trailer weight and includes sway control and the ability to back up while the weight distribution is engaged. This hitch fits a 2" receiver. If you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver you will additionally need the Buyers Products # 337RTA252 Receiver Tube Adapter. If you do not already have one add the Curt # A-90 two inch hitch ball with 1-1/4" diameter shank to your order. When...

  • How Can I Get More Clearance Between My Hitch and Trailer Coupler?
    I had a couple of our couplers measured, but the Bulldog Cast Head Coupler w/ Wedge Latch - 2-5/16" Ball - Adjustable Channel - 14,000 lbs # BDA256C0317 ended up being the longest one we currently carry. We do have the Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender - 2-1/2" to 2" Trailer Hitch - 7" Long # HR26, but the use of extenders like this will reduce your tongue weight, up to 1/3 in this case. If you need something longer, you could also go with the Reese Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches...

  • Recommended 2-1/2" Channel Mount For The LockNRoll Articulating Hitch 336VS503
    The B&W Tow and Stow line of ball mounts, including the # BWTS20049B, will be too wide for the Lock N Roll # 336VS503 to fit around, so I can say that one is a no go right off the bat. With that out of the way, the # 336VS503 will fit in the channel of the BulletProof Hitches # HD256. You will still be limited to 11,000 pounds of capacity as this is what the # 336VS503 is rated to. As a side note, we do also have the Lock N Roll 5-Position Adjustable Channel Bracket # 336TS515 that will...

  • Components Needed to Tow a 2016 Nissan NV 3500 with a 2021 Nexus Ghost International Chassis
    We do have what you need here. For your 2016 Nissan NV 3500, the Roadmaster Base Plate is the Direct-Connect, part # RM-52359-5. The tow bar compatible with this that I recommend is the Falcon 2, part # RM-520. This tow bar will connect into your 2021 Nexus Ghost International Chassis' hitch receiver. I've linked to a video review of this tow bar for you to look at. *Edit - The 2016 Nissan NV 3500 is 7000 pounds, so the Falcon 2 will not be able to support it. The proper tow bar is the...
