Hi, everyone. Aiden here at etrailer. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at this Draw-Tite hitch reducer that will adapt your three-inch hitch down to a two-and-a-half-inch hitch. Let's check it out. Here's what that reducer sleeve will look like while it's in use. If you've got yourself a two-and-a-half-inch accessory, whether it be a pintle hook like this or a ball mount, and you wanna use it with a three-inch hitch, this is the way to do it.

Why you might want to do this is, well, maybe you got a new truck and you're taking your old ball mount from the old truck to the new one because the new one has a larger hitch. It allows you to still use the ball mount you already own. Or let's say you've got multiple trucks or maybe a fleet of vehicles that have different hitch sizes. Again, in that case, it would allow you to use the same ball mount across those different hitch sizes. So whatever your case might be, a hitch reducer is a great way to get what you already have working with the larger hitch size.

This does not include pin and clip or anything like that, it's just the reducer sleeve. So I'll pull this all out and you can see that. Here it is. Pretty basic. The one thing I will say is that this does have a 5/8-inch diameter pin hole.

Certain three-inch reducers might have a 3/4-inch diameter hole, and it's important to check what you have on your hitch. In our case today, it's a 5/8-inch diameter, so I know we're good there. And the one thing that is a little finicky is that you just have to line up more than just the one set of pin holes on your accessory. You've gotta line up the accessory and the reducer altogether to get it pinned in place, but it's really not too bad. With this one being pretty simple and small, it's not that big of a concern and it's pretty easy to get lined up.

It's a black powder-coated steel, so that'll help protect it against rust and corrosion over time. It blends in with our ball mount and the hitch perfectly fine, doesn't stick out, and since it's not anything that you're actually hooking a trailer to, I don't expect that that powder coat's gonna wear away that much. So I think it'll be pretty good for longevity. One thing you might not be thinking about, but might be a little bit annoying is any extra rattle that you might find, that's gonna be pretty normal for anything you put in your hitch to begin with, but adding a reducer sleeve just means there's now more layers with all their own tolerances. And when you combine that all together, there's just more points for movement and noise, and it might just get a bit obnoxious if you do leave your accessory in the hitch full time. If you've got the weight of a trailer on here, you're probably not gonna hear it as much. You're more than likely just gonna hear the trailer noise above all else, but with no weight on here, if you hit a speed bump or something, there's probably gonna be extra noise and it's just something to be mindful of. That's really all there is to it. These hitch reducers are gonna be pretty straightforward. Most of 'em are gonna be the same. The one thing to watch out for, like I mentioned, is just the pin hole diameter. Whether you need that 3/4-inch diameter or the 5/8-inch diameter, that'll determine which options you need to be looking at. But this was just our look at this option from Draw-Tite. Thanks for watching.

This adapter sleeve lets you use 2-1/2" towing and hitch-mounted accessories with your 3" hitch receiver. Durable Metalshield finish. Can be used with weight distribution.


I have a small utility trailer made many years ago with junkyard springs. The springs needed to be re-arched, which moved the axle relatively forward too much. So the axle had to be moved rearward, which meant new spring hanger brackets. Unfortunately, the junkyard springs did not match the width of any available spring hangers. Hence my project.

I purchased two Reese hitch adapters - 3 inch to 2-1/2 inch - which gave me a good inside dimension for the brackets. I only have hand tools so I did the cutting and fabrication by hand, then found someone to weld the brackets in the correct positions.

Attached please find several pictures which tell the story. Now that I have found you, if I need any other parts, I will certainly get them from you.


Just what I needed for the new truck!

  • Will the 17K Strait-Line Weight Distribution System Work With 3 Shank
    In order to use the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System part # RP66075 with a 3" trailer hitch you'll need the Equalizer Weight Dist Shank part # EQ90-02-4800 and the Draw-Tite Reducer Sleeve part # 58552. There isn't a weight distribution system with solid 3" shank unfortunately.

  • Is There A Pintle Adapter Available For A B&W Tow And Stow Ball Mount In A 3 Hitch
    Though I may have another option available for you, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS30049B is not available with a pintle hitch as of yet. With that being said, there are actually no current options available for the 3" hitches being used, so you will need to use a reducer, like the # 58552, if you do not already have one. This will allow you to go one of two ways. First will be the Curt Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2-1/2" Hitches # C45908. This is rated to 20,000 pounds and...
