Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter - 337RTA302

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (74 Customer Reviews)


I tried to use this with four different 2 inch receivers and not one of them would fit. I would not purchase this product again or recommend to anyone else looking for a 3 inch to 2 inch adapter. Iā€™m not sure how this manufacturer could let so many of them out into the marketplace when it simply does not work as advertised.

We did have this extender pulled to be tested and found that they had an engineering issue. I will have customer service team reach out to you. I recommend taking a look at part # e33YR
Trailer Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeves - 3" to 2-1/2" or 2"
as a replacement.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 07/21/2022


Unusable. Poorly constructed. Huge seam on inside which prevents the insertion of a 2ā€ hitch. Only use is as a doorstop.


Fits loosely into my new 2021 Ford F350 Super Duty. Although it fits easy enough, it is sloppy and rattles a bit. Of course my Equalizer had a slight looseness in my old truck too. Now I am a little concerned that the adaptor slop will compound with the Equalizer movement to cause an unsafe condition. I'd rate it higher if I knew it would be totally safe and not compromise tongue weight or towing. I wish it would fit snugger into the truck hitch.

The sleeve works well enough, I spoke with a parts dealer and he told me a trick to take out the looseness. I purchased some cheap plastic door wedges and drove them between the receiver and sleeve. It really makes a snug fit without any problems.

Will not fit any of my 2 inch hitches - the weld on the inside needs to be ground down for it to work. I even paid for overnight shipping as I needed it asap - guess I have to figure something out.

I am sorry that the hitch reducer is not working for you. We did have a batch from the manufacturer that was defective that is currently being corrected. I will have our customer service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 07/25/2022


Just received this. I tried 4 different 2" hitches and none of them fit. I previously ordered this a month ago and that one didnt fit any of my hitches either. I reported that it looked like the outer flange that buyers product welded on was not in line with the 2" tubing. This one that e trailer sent me looks like the it has the same issues as before And, well guess what it still doesnt fit. 4 different hitches and none of them fit and they are standard over the counter 2" hitches. The problem is not on my end, it is buyers products and etrailer for sending me this unverified hunk of useless steel. I will be calling you to return this junk too. Not very happy.


I thought the fit was a little wobbly. I haven't used it yet and not sure how it"s supposed to fit. This is replacing a 3 to 2 1/2 to 2inch adapter. The hitch side is solid but the insert into the 3 inch is not as tight as I think it should be.

You can use an anti-rattle hitch like the XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2-12 Hitches - 3-12 Span Part # SHP2040-XL
XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2-1/2" Hitches - 3-1/2" Span
to lessen the wobble in your towing setup.

I recently purchased an F350 with a 3" receiver. I needed a reducer to install my bike rack. This reducer worked perfectly


Exactly what I needed, and delivered early! Superb quality and great price too.

Unfortunately, the 2 receiver did not fit my 2 Kayak rack male end. The milling looked to be a mm or so off on the corners, preventing me from using the adaptor
David - 10/10/2022


Very poor quality. I ordered the MaxxTow Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount MT70197 at the same time I ordered this 337RTA302 adapter. The MaxxTow cannot be inserted into this adapter because the inside of the adapter is not squared and not smooth. I have many 2 inch shanks with different size balls, none of them can be inserted into this adapter 337RTA302, but one shank that was forced into this adapter. Once I forced the shank into this adapter, still cannot insert the 5/8 pin because the pin holes on the adapter are out of alignment. I wasted time and money buying this product.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 10/21/2021


Chunk of steel. What can you say. Fits properly and allows use of smaller hitch with High Capacity receiver.


Fits perfect and works great.


Kind of a pain, because it extends the reach


It could be a few inches longer but works great


This adapter works as expected. Great price and fast delivery.


Very heavy duty, fits perfect.


Just what I needed. Solid piece of gear.


All my orders with etrailer have been superb, thank you


Very poor quality. It took an hour of grinding out the inside to get a 2" insert to fit into it. It did fit into the 3" trailor hitch with no modification necessary. In the end it works. Very disapontied.


We needed an adapter for our RV to make our 3 inch receiver accept a 2 inch bike rack. The folks at etrailer were excellent. They explained what we needed and the price was very good also. I will definitely use them again


First of all I was told it would be delivered by March 11. I received it on March 7. Thank you
Your online site was very easy to work.
Not much on computers so thank you.
All I have to say is thank you for your help.


Perfect fit, simple install on 2020 F25 0.


Good product for a fair price. I have a fifth-wheel hitch but needed this reducer to pull smaller bumper pull trailers.


Purchased this adapter for use on my 2019 F-350.
I have a Yakima Dr. Tray hitch mounted bike rack. This adapter works perfectly between the 3ā€ ford receiver and the 2ā€ hitch mounted rack that incorporates both locking mechanisms.


This adapter is perfect for using a 2" hitch in a 3" receiver. I have 2 adapter sleeves that came with my truck and my previous truck had a single sleeve to adapter 2.5" down to 2". The problem with these sleeves is that you can remove the hitch and forget to take out the sleeve, leaving it to fall out next time you drive the truck. This adapter forces you to take out the pin to remove hitch and adapter or take out the smaller pin to remove only the hitch. No chance of suffering from a brain fart.


Previously I had to use two step down adapters. This adapter made lining up for to pin hole much easier. Good product and excellent etrailer service!

Still working great!

  • 3 inch to 2 inch Hitch Adapter for Use with Weight Distribution
    For a 3 inch hitch to 2 inch hitch adapter we have the part # 337RTA302. This will work great with your Fastway weight distribution system.

  • Adapter to Use Weight Distribution with 3 inch Hitch
    Since at this time there isn't a weight distribution shank that fits the 3 inch hitch size your best option would be the 3 inch to 2 inch hitch adapter part # 337RTA302 which will work directly with the shank you have now.

  • Availability Of 3" to 2" Trailer Hitch Reducer
    We sure do! We have the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302 which fits in your 3" receiver and allows you to use your current 2" hitch accessories. The # 337RTA302 has a maximum tongue weight rating of 1200lbs, and a maximum trailer weight rating of 12000lbs. I included a video of the # 337RTA302 for you to take a look at.

  • 3 Inch to 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Reducer for 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    That's a good question and to reduce the 3" receiver in your 2019 Ford F-350 to a 2" receiver I recommend using the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302. The reason is, this is a single-piece reducer which will be simpler to use than having to mess with both a sleeve and a reducer. It also completely eliminates the chance of forgetting you had a sleeve in the receiver and having it fall out, as wisely noted by one of our customers. I have added a link to a video...

  • Correct 3" to 2" Hitch Reducer for Ford OEM 3" Hitch
    I do have an option for you but the Reducer Sleeve for Super Titan Hitch Receivers part # 38735 does not work with any of the Ford OEM 3" Hitches. Instead, I recommend the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter part # 337RTA302 which is confirmed to fit.

  • How to Use Weight Distribution Hitch With 2 Inch Shank In 3 Inch Hitch Receiver
    You can use your Reese weight distribution hitch with a 2 inch shank with your vehicle that has a 3 inch hitch receiver, but there isn't a 3 inch shank so you can simply use a hitch reducer, which also has the benefit of being much more economical than a brand new shank. What you can use is the following: - Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302 You can also secure this adapter to your hitch with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Lock # 63260.

    There is an adapter for your 3 inch trailer hitch receiver that will allow you to use a ball mount with a 2 inch shank: - Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302 This will fit right in your 3" hitch and allow you to use your ball mount with a 2" shank. And the best part is, unlike other hitch reducers, this one will not reduce the capacity of your hitch by 50 percent, though it does have a 12,000 lbs towing and 1,200 lb tongue weight capacity.

  • Adapter to Fit 3 inch Hitch of 2017 Ford F-350 and Provide 2 inch Hitch
    The correct adapter for the 3 inch hitch on your 2017 Ford F-350 down to a 2 inch hitch is the Buyers Products adapter part # 337RTA302 as it has the correct diameter for the hitch pin of 5/8 inch. Everything else we offer does not match this size.

  • Recommended Hitch Extension For 2017 Ford F-350 With 3 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The hitch reducer we have for a 3 inch hitch receiver on a 2017 F-350 is the Buyer's Products Adapter # 337RTA302. This will give you only a 3-7/8 inch extension while reducing the size of your receiver opening. If you need a longer extension, I recommend the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Hitch Receivers - 8" Long # C45791 which will give you an 8 inch extension but will also reduce your trailer hitch tongue weight rating by up to 50 percent like all hitch extenders do including the Blue Ox.

  • Recommended Hitch Receiver Reducer for 2017 Ford F-250 with 3 Inch Hitch to Blue Ox Sway Pro System
    For the traditional Blue Ox Sway Pro, you will need the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeves - 3" to 2-1/2" or 2" # C45408 to reduce a 3 inch receiver down to 2 inches. This is not rated for a specific weight rating because it does not protrude from the hitch opening. Another option is to use the Buyers products # 337RTA302 which has one less moving part and are rated for tongue weights up to 1,200 lbs.

  • Recommended 3 Inch to 2 Inch Hitch Reducer with 5/8 Inch Pin Hole
    There is a solution for you, the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302 which has a 5/8" hitch pin hole and would give you the security you need. Using the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeves - 3" to 2-1/2" or 2" # C45408 with its 3/4" hitch pin hole would not be ideal because the conflicting hitch pin diameters would mean your tow bar would be loose inside the receiver. I have added a link to a video review of the Buyers Products adapter for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Hitch Reducer for 3 Inch Receiver and Weight Distribution Hitch
    I recommend using the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302 which will give you an additional length of 3-7/8 inches from hitch pin hole to hitch pin hole. 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.

  • Looking for 3 Inch to 2 Inch Hitch Receiver Reducer With 3/4 Inch Hitch Pin Hole
    I have a solution that would work for you unless your hitch is the OEM Ford 3 inch receiver. The # 38735 Reese Reducer sleeve uses a 3/4 inch hitch pin like # 58388, but the Ford OEM 3 inch receiver uses a more rounded radius on the inside corners of the receiver tube, so the # 38735 reducer wouldn't be a good choice with a Ford OEM receiver. If you have the Ford hitch, I'd use the # 337RTA302 Buyers Products reducer you'd looked at and enlarge the hitch pin holes to 3/4 using a well-lubricated...

  • Is There a Hitch Adapter For a 2" Receiver to a 2 1/2" Riser Hitch
    I have a solution for you if you are needing a riser hitch. There are no hitch adapters for you to connect your 2" receiver to the 2 1/2" riser hitch you bought. Actually, even if there were an adapter available you would cut your towing capacity in half by using one. I have added a link to the adjustable ball mounts that will fit the 2" receiver on your 2005 Ford F-250. I recommend the Adjustable Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 9" Rise to 10-1/4" Drop # TK5007, because the shank provides...

  • Recommended Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve for Use with Pro Series Adjustable 2-Ball Mount
    The Pro Series Adjustable 2-Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # 63071 referenced in your question does include the two different sized built-in hitch balls (2 inches and 2-5/16 inches). When using the 2-5/16 inch ball, this ball mount is rated at 14,000 pounds. This ball mount also has a maximum drop of 5-7/8 inches and maximum rise of 4-5/8 inches.

I recommend looking into the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302 as this will be your only option. This will extend the 3" receiver while converting it to 2" so that the Thule bike rack can fit and lock into place. I attached a couple demonstration...

There is no way to safely use a drop hitch adapter in combination with the 2" to 3" adapter, so unfortunately you will need to mount your bike rack at the height of your receiver.

The Reese Titan is not compatible with Ford OEM 3" receivers though so if that's what you have then you can't go with this product. It's only designed to work with the Reese Super Titan hitches.

    Since you have a 3 inch hitch on your 2022 Ford F-350 and there aren't systems that fit that hitch size directly quite yet you'd need to use the adapter part # 337RTA302 to fit a system designed for a 2 inch hitch like the Equal-i-zer part # EQ64FR which would work great for your 2015 Jayco Octane since it has a tongue weight range of 1,200 to 1,600 lbs. This also has a 4 point friction sway control integrated into it.
