Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Gen Y Hitch Reducer Sleeve. Now this adaptor changes your two and a half inch receiver to a two inch receiver. So that way you can use your two inch hitch mount accessories inside of your two and a half inch trailer hitch.The unit is constructed of a sturdy steel construction and it features a black powder coated finish that's going to help it resist rust and corrosion. It's going to last and look good for a long time.Now a pin and clip or a hitch lock, those items are not included, so they will need to be provided separately. If you're in need of one, you can find them here at etrailer.com. This unit will accept a standard 5/8th diameter pin.

The product is made in the USA.A few measurements to go over with you real quick. Starting with the overall length, measures five and a half inches. From the center of the pin hole to this edge right here measures three inches. And from this edge to the center of the pin hole measures two and a half inches.That's going to do it for today's look at the Gen Y Hitch Reducer Sleeve.

Gen-Y Hitch Reducer Sleeve - 2-1/2" to 2" - 5-1/2" Long - 325-GH-007

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (11 Customer Reviews)

This reducer sleeve lets you use 2" towing and hitch-mounted accessories with your 2-1/2" receiver. Adapter easily slides into your hitch receiver or onto the shank of your accessory. Steel construction is durable.

This reducer sleeve is quite nicely manufactured. I have absolutely no doubt that it will provide a mechanically safe and secure means to adapt my recently purchased adjustable 2" hitch unit with the rear 2.5" receiver on my 2019 F250 for use with any trailers that are at or under the specified load range. The only reasons that I gave it 4 stars vs 5 is that the interior isn't 100% covered with paint, as well as the fact that it doesn't fit really tightly inside the rear receiver of the F250. I hope this doesn't dissuade prospective purchasers from strongly considering this reducer sleeve for similar applications, as it's well manufactured and will most likely perform quite satisfactorily under any reasonable towing conditions.

I just received the item...that’s why it’s a four stars, haven’t had a chance to try it out yet...seems to fit fine, I’m sure it will work out just fine. If I have any issues I’ll sure to report it. E-Trailer has been a great place to buy for all my towing and trailer needs... I have had no complaints at this point in time...thanks.

Works as advertised...have had no issues, hauled loads of an excess of 13,000lbs. E-trailer is a great place for your trailer needs from products to great people.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Reducer Sleeve for 2-1/2 Inch Receiver Opening and 2-1/2 Inch WD Shank
    For your new Dodge Ram 2500, the 2-1/2 inch Receiver can be reduced using the Gen-Y Hitch Reducer Sleeve - 2-1/2" to 2" # 325-GH-007 and is compatible with weight distribution systems. If you want a better fit for a weight distribution system, I recommend instead using the Curt Weight Distribution Shank for 2-1/2" Hitches # C17131. This will allow you to use your same weight distribution system and have the best connection to your 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver. This will be compatible...

  • Cushioned Shank For Use With Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
    We do have an option for you, though there isn't a standalone cushioned ball mount like the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount # C45949-22516 that is compatible or rated for use with a weight distribution system. What you can use instead is a cushioned shank that is compatible with your Equal-i-zer weight distribution system; the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank will mount directly in your trailer hitch and you'll simply replace your Equal-i-zer's shank with...

  • American Flag Hitch Cover in a 2-1/2 Inch Hitch
    We actually only carry one htich cover for 2-1/2 hitch receivers, part # C22277, which obviously isn't an American Flag. Instead you can use a reducer like part # 325-GH-007 with a 2 inch cover witih an American flag, part # AMG102202.

  • Steel Hitch Pin for 2-1/2 Inch Receiver and Steel Hitch Reducer
    There are steel hitch pins for your 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch but all of them have a zinc coating, such as the Gen-Y Hitch Pin and Clip for 2-1/2" and 3" Hitches - 5/8" Diameter x 4" Long # 325-GH-099; as you mentioned, for a stainless steel pin you would need a lock, the Curt Hitch Lock - 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches - Stainless Steel # C23519. If you didn't want a lock because you didn't want to keep track of another key, there is the option of BOLT locks, which are made of stainless steel,...

  • Weight Distribution Shank for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver with More Drop
    For your 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver, the shank with the most drop is the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Rise/6" Drop # EQ90-02-4900. This will give you 2 inches more drop than the # EQ90-02-4800 you referenced. Depending on your system you may alternatively be able to use a shank like the Reese Weight Dist Shank - Drop Only - 11" Long - 7-5/8", 8-5/8" Drop # RP3344 with a sleeve reducer like # 325-GH-007. This is not ideal but in some cases can work depending...

  • Replacement Weight Distribution Shank for 2-1/2-Inch Hitch on 2017 Ram Pickup
    We can help you with a solution to let you use your Husky Centerline 2-inch weight distribution hitch in your Ram's 2-1/2-inch receiver. There are two ways you can go. One solution is to install a hitch reducer sleeve in your Ram's 2-1/2-inch hitch, an item such as Reese # 58102, Curt # C45405 or Gen-Y # 325-GH-007. This will take up the slack inside the 2-1/2-inch receiver so that your 2-inch Husky shank fits properly. The other and better way to go is to replace the shank component...

  • Parts Needed to Use Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System on 2-1/2" Receiver of 2021 Silverado 2500
    I have a solution for you, but you can't use the Roadmaster # RM-058-4 to tow a trailer; this high/low adapter is only suited for flat towing where there is not any tongue weight. Instead you can use a hitch reducer like the Gen-Y Hitch Reducer Sleeve - 2-1/2" to 2" - 5-1/2" Long # 325-GH-007 to make your 2-1/2" receiver on your 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 into a 2" receiver that will work with your existing weight distribution hitch. You could also get a completely different shank that...

  • Solution for Equal-i-zer 18" Weight Distribution Shank with 2-1/2" Neck
    We have a solution that may work for you. While Equal-i-zer, or any other manufacturer do not manufacturer an 18" neck with 2.5 shank they do have an 18" neck. Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank # EQ90-02-4500 and # EQ90-02-4600 could be used with the addition of a Reducer Sleeve # 325-GH-007. The sleeve will adapt your 2.5" receiver to accept the 2" shank.

  • How to Transport a 300 lb Motorcycle While Towing an Airstream Trailer with a 2018 Ford F-350
    I have a solution for you to get your motorcycle and Airstream trailer to your destination but a typical dual adapter like part # MT70070 wont' do the job because these have a max tongue weight of 400 lbs and since your motorcycle weighs in at 300 lbs you need an alternative option. You could potentially use a beefier option like the Gen-Y Hitch # 325-GH-1724 with an adapter # 325-GH-007 for a motorcycle carrier like # MT70101 but you would have to find a creative way to load your motorcycle...

  • Reducer Sleeve Compatible with 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver and Fastway Self-Locking Ball Mount
    The Fastway Self-Locking, Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Stainless Balls - 2" Hitch - 6" Drop, 7" Rise # DTALBM6600-2S can be used with certain adapters and not others. The single hole sleeve reducers like # 58102 or # 325-GH-007 will not work because the ball mount won't have the pins long enough to secure to the receiver itself after connecting to the sleeve reducer. You will want the Adapter Sleeve for Fastway and Diversi-Tech 2" Locking Ball Mounts to 2-1/2" Receivers # DTADP25-SS to...

  • Solution to Provide 2 inch Hitch Opening at a 10 inch Drop that Fits 2.5 inch Hitch
    The best option for that would be the Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount part # 325-GH-625 with the sleeve adapter part # 325-GH-007 installed in the hitch opening you want to use as it would provide a 2 inch hitch size. There isn't a similar option that would work without a sleeve adapter.

  • How is the Length of a Ball Mount Measured
    The length of a ball mount like the Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitch - 7" Rise, 8" Drop - 9-1/2" Long - 12,000 lbs # 4283 is measured from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball mount hole. This particular ball mount is 9-1/2" long from the center of the hitch pin hole to the ball mount hole. In regards to your second question you could use the Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender - 2-1/2" to 2" Trailer Hitch - 7" Long # HR26 but it would reduce your tongue weight by...
