Works as presented. I forgot to order a second hitch pin; I wish it came with one since you can't use it without two of them. I did get some rattling over rough payment that was clearly coming from the hitch connection - although it may have been the trailer coupler and not a result of the slight play between the receiver and extension. I wished it had a threaded pin hole so as to allow for the extension to be tightened down. 64940

I was struggling to make a bike rack work on a Jeep Wrangler 2-door with spare tire. First, the phone rep was excellent, providing thoughtful comments and advice. She helped me make a good decision. She took all the time necessary for a small,purchase price. The hitch extension worked perfectly. The locking hitch pin was easy to install and provides Great security. Not a rattle to be heard. Moreover, I can now open my tailgate to access the rear and transport three bikes on a Wrangler. 188141

Just what I was looking for,I have a Hummer and with the large spare on the rear I could not put a lift for my handicap scooter on the back,but with this extender problem was solved.The service from etrailer was great it seemed as if it arrived overnight.I added yellow reflectors to each side to keep me from banging into it in low light.Overall great product 480344


Comments

Using the extender will lower the tongue weight capacity maximum amount of weight that can be safely suspended from your hitch by half. For instance, if your current hitch tongue weight capacity is 400 lbs, using the extender will lower that by half to 200 lbs. This would mean that the mobility scooter and the carrier could weigh no more than 200 lbs. Your hitch will have a sticker somewhere on it that lists its gross towing and tongue weight capacity.

A much-needed item when pulling my utility trailer with my Jeep. This allows a greater distance between the Jeep and the trailer so I can clear the trailer's a-frame mounted landing gear/support leg from the Jeep's spare tire when I open the back door. 584687


Comments

Were glad to hear that the extender is working well for you. Please keep in mind that using an extender will reduce the towing and the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by half. The extra length of the extender moves the trailer tongue weight further away from the hitch, which increases the leverage place on the hitch and its attachment points to the vehicle.

The staff at etrailer made my buying experience nothing short unforgettable...they are prompt on receiving your order and processing it in a timely fashion. In my case I was confused on what it was I exactly needed; they emailed me a number of options that would accommodate my needs with budget and price range in mind. This is the second time I have purchased from etrailer and they made me feel like family; they can count on me being a long term customer from here on out! And last but not least the product speaks for itself. Towing a trailer from state to state can make you a sceptic of your equipments endurance and toughness; I know my hitch and components are one less thing I need to worry about... 539536

This product (manufactured in China) is sturdy with nice, heavy coats of paint. On the advice of the etrailer.com expert, I purchased this 12 inch extender for my Thule T2 pro XT (trailer hitch mount) platform bike rack. As it turns out, an 8 inch extension would have been a better choice for my stock 2017 Jeep Wrangler (with OEM sized spare tire). Oh well. 518916

Pulling a double axle 16' flatbed with 2 to 4 quads on it. Product works well. No back and forth sway. More stable then I anticipated it would be. Plenty of clearance for the back of my 10' slide-in camper, the reason for buying this product in the first place. I would recommend this, but be mindful of the tongue weight on the hitch. 514198

This part is very strong and fit my truck perfectly. I am very happy with the purchase. The company did a great job getting it to me on time. I needed it quickly for a client fishing outing and it came on time. They did a great job. I would recommend this product for anybody who needs a bit of room between the truck and the trailer. It is also helpful for those who tow boats, since the part effectively makes the trailer longer. This helps keep the exhaust pipe out of the water on the boat ramp. As a fly fishing guide, this part made a big difference to my business. 488068

Do you have a question about this Hitch Adapter?


  • Compatibility Of Platform Bike Rack With Jeep Wrangler Spare Tire
  • The Thule T2 Pro XTB 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Tilting - Black # TH9034XT will need an extension to clear your rear spare. From the center of the hitch pin hole this rack is 7 inches to the closest part of the rack when in position to carry bikes and when folded is 5 inches to closest part. This is an excellent bike rack, so I recommend using the MaxxTow Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 12" Long # MT70024. This will reduce your trailer hitch tongue weight capacity...

  • Front-Mount Hitches for 2012 Nissan Frontier
  • The two front-mount hitches we have for your 2012 Nissan Frontier, Draw-Tite # 65075 and Curt # 31241, both mount to the same points on the Frontier's frame and the bottom of the receiver tubes on both will be approximately 7-inches below the top of the mounting brackets. I measured both hitches in our warehouse to see if one offers more clearance than the other; they are virtually identical in this respect. Between the two I suggest the Draw-Tite since it has a higher vertical load rating...

  • Hitch Extender for Use with MaxxHaul Portable Vise Plate to Allow Tailgate to Fold Down

  • Trailer Hitch Extender with a Step to Use on a Truck with In-bed Camper and to Tow a Trailer
  • We actually have an extension that is 18 inches long, and has a built-in step on it. Take a look at # RP11006. Like you have said, by using the extension the tongue weight capacity of the hitch is reduced by 50 percent. But as long as the tongue weight of the trailer does not exceed the reduced capacity you should be fine. I would also urge you to disconnect the trailer before stepping on the step because the combined weight of a person on the step and the trailer tongue weight could...

  • We have not yet tested the Swagman Semi 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack part # S64686 on a 2017 Toyota Tacoma but I can tell from looking at the tilting feature that it would more than likely not allow for the tailgate to be folded all the way down. In order to fold the tailgate down on your Tacoma with the Semi 2.0 installed you would need to use a hitch extender like part # MT70024 but this will reduce your hitch's overall capacity by 50%.

  • Hitch Extender For Adding Enough Space Between Trailer and SUV to Open Rear Hatch
  • You can do that if you wish, but be aware that using an extension lowers the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. The further the load gets extended away from the hitch, the more leverage is applied. This leverage can damage the hitch or cause it or its attachment points to the vehicle to fail. If you can get by with the reduced capacity, I'd recommend the 12 inch # MT70024, the 14 inch # C45795 or the 18 inch # HE18. An extra long ball mount might be a good alternative. If you click...

  • How to Extend Hitch Connection Between Trailer and Truck to Allow Tailgate to be Fully Lowered
  • I have a solution for you, but the Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 7-3/4" Extension, # RM-071-1075, is designed to be used in flat towing applications. When flat towing a vehicle behind an motorhome there is less tongue weight on the hitch than when you are towing a trailer. That's why the Roadmaster hitch extender has a low tongue weight rating and should not be used in trailer applications. I recommend using a ball mount with a longer shank, like...

But using it will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. I would normally recommend going with # D210 but it only has a 2-1/4 inch drop.

  • I'm a bit confused by your question, I guess I don't quite understand why you'd need to use an adapter to tow a trailer. If you need the 11 or 12 inches of extra clearance, use the MaxxTow # MT70024 hitch extender. It would install into your 2 inch receiver, and you'd install your 2 inch ball mount in the other end. This set up CAN be used to tow a trailer, but because you're extending the length between the load and the receiver on the vehicle, the tongue weight capacity of your hitch...

Please not that using a hitch extender will decrease the weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent.

  • Is There A Standard Size for a 2 Inch Receiver
  • As you've discovered, a 2 inch receiver doesn't always measure exactly two inches by two inches. There is a manufacturing tolerance involved that allows the receiver to be a few hundredths of an inches larger or smaller than 2 inches, but still be within tolerance. Due to the fact that the connection between a hitch receiver and the shank of a ball mount or hitch mounted accessory isn't meant to be a precision fit, the tolerances are generous. These tolerances are common in manufactured...

I recommend taking a quick measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole on your hitch receiver, to the outermost edge of the spare tire.

  • Using a hitch extender such as # MT70024 will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. It will all add additional stress to the hitch and to where it is mounted on your travel trailer. I do not recommend using an extender. Since you already have a bike rack that is compatible with the travel trailer the best solution would be to stow the spare tire in an alternate location. The benefit is that it won't cost you any money to do so and you will not have to...

  • Does Use of Cargo Carrier Reduce Trailer Hitch Capacity
  • Cargo carriers like the MaxxTow carrier part # MT70108 attached directly to a trailer hitch without the use of an extender like the part # MT70024 do not cut the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. If this carrier was installed in your hitch directly you'd get the full capacity of the trailer hitch.

  • Solution for Lengthening Distance Between Hitch and Boat Trailer for Launching
  • We may have a similar solution that would work. If you needed an 18 inch extension the part # HE18 would give you more length to lower the trailer into the ramp. Basically this fits into your 2 inch trailer hitch and gives you a second hitch opening 18 inches back from that. For a slightly smaller extension we have the part # MT70024 which would give you 12 inches instead. You should note that these extensions cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent.

  • Can Rola Enclosed Cargo Carrier # 59110 Be Used with Hitch Extension
  • If you use a hitch extender like the part # MT70024 you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch it's used in by 50 percent. So if you have a 350 lb tongue weight capacity that means you'd have a 175 lb capacity left over with the extension. The Rola carrier part # 59110 weighs 88 lbs so you'd have 87 lbs left of capacity with the extension. If you can get by with only carrying 87 lbs as the max this would work fine.

The clamp part of the ball mount requires just 1-1/2 inches of free space on the shank. It is not meant to fit on a 2-1/2 inch shank or adapter/extender.

Then for an extension that will give you an overall length of 12 inches, I recommend the MaxxTow # MT70024.

  • Extended Hitch to Tow 2,000 Pound Trailer
  • The # BX88264 hitch extender is for flat towing or carrying hitch accessories like a bike rack or cargo carrier. Instead, the MaxxTow Hitch Extender # MT70024 can be used for towing. It's also 12 inches long. However, when using any hitch extender you will reduce your hitch's tongue weight by 50 percent. You will need to make sure you are staying under this capacity. For another option that won't impact your tongue weight, the Curt Class III Ball Mount # C45270 is 13 inches long....

  • Recommendation to Extend Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2014 Toyota Tundra
  • We have a couple different options available that will help to extend the trailer hitch on your 2014 Toyota Tundra when towing your Jayco Travel Trailer. I first recommend looking at a ball mount that uses a longer shank, such as the Curt Ball Mount # D-26. This ball mount is 12-5/8 inches long from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole.

  • Recommendations for Extending a Cargo Trailer 12 Inches from the Tow Vehicle
  • I have an extension option, but I do not recommend using a hitch extender like part # MT70024. Hitch extenders will reduce the weight capacity of the hitch by half. They also add another piece to the setup which allows for additional movement. Instead, I recommend looking at an extra long or a super extra long ball mount. An extra long ball mount, like part # BM20, has more than enough capacity to tow your trailer and it measures 13-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to...

  • Can Hitch Extension Help Allow Truck to Lower Tailgate When Towing
  • A hitch extension does cut your trailer hitch capacity by 50 percent, but for as light of a trailer as you have and how heavy duty your tow vehicle is that wouldn't be an issue. So yes, a 12 inch hitch extension like the # MT70024 would be a solid choice to allow you to drop your tailgate!
