My hitch adapter has worked out well. I use it with my bike rake, it holds my bike rake out from my SUV about 7.5" which allows the back hatch door to open without putting my rack in the down position. It also works well with my 1-1/4' draw bar and allowing me to pull up to 3500#.

I used this hitch to accommodate some racking systems that I used on another vehicle. It worked perfectly and saved me from having to purchase new racks.

Fits perfectly, does the job. feels really solid and durable. One detail: it comes without nut + bolt and they don't tell you this in the description. So you need to go buy this too (local car supplied such as O' Reilly will have it).

The adapter seems to be of very good quality. Before looking at etrailer I'd been having a hard time finding adapters that had both the 5/8" hole (#3 pin) for attachment to my 2" trailer hitch, and a 1/2" diameter hole to attach the 1-1/4" bike rack. Some just had one size holes, others had terrible reviews. The fit is good, though there is some wiggle room. From all the reviews I've seen, ALL adapters have some movement, and the only solution is adding a locking collar, which I may do after I've tried it for a while (I just got it today). Bottom line, I'm happy with my purchase.

Easy peasy. Put it in, pin it, done. Fits great, works great. For what it's worth, I purchased this because I was moving from a 1 1/4 on my Miata (for a Thule Helium Pro bike rack), to a standard 2" on my new-ish Subaru. I went with this extended reducer because I was concerned that the shank of the bike rack would hit the pin on anything shorter before it could snap into the hole to secure it (the bike rack is a pressure fit with a long-ish shank that goes into the hitch). It does stick out a bit, but so does nearly every giant pick up truck with extended cab and a hitch :), so I just need to park smartly.

Solid construction, easily fit in our existing 2 inch hitch. Used it for a bike rack with a 1 1/4 end and the extended sleeve gave plenty of clearance between the rack and the lift gate. Had to give it a dose of WD-40 because the fit was pretty snug but otherwise a great product.

I cannot say enough good things about etrailer. Their product line and service is fantastic. The staff at etrailer is great. They stay in touch from the time you place your order until it arrives at its destination. They notify you with tracking information to give you a better idea as to when the order will arrive. The products they sell are all top notch. No cheaply made knock offs. I could not find the parts and pieces I needed for a project I was working on. I went to etrailer on line and they had everything I needed.

Poor quality control of manufactured item. The design is perfect for its job. But the final fabrication leaves a question as to quality. Let me explain: The gauge of metal used and its fabrication (welding)appears to be very satisfactory. But the hole drilled in the 2 inch shank to hold a 5/8 inch retaining pin was properly sized on one side but TOO SMALL on the other! I couldn't get a standard 5/8 inch pin through it. Thus I have to find someone to "ream out" the smaller hole before I can use product.....

All components exactly as listed. Having [video] clips for mounting a hitch and wiring my 06 Odyssey was outstanding.

Worked great to convert a 2 inch hitch down to a smaller bike rack. My only complaint is that it is long and causes the bike rack to extend further from car then I would like.

This hitch adapter will allow me to use my bike rack (designed for 1 1/4 inch hitch) on my truck hitch receiver (2-inch). It's a great, inexpensive way to get double duty out of a single bike rack because we can now use it on two vehicles that have two different sized hitches.

I had a hard time finding the exact hitch adaptor I needed from many different suppliers on the internet. I was skeptical even when I found the etrailer.com website. Boy was I surprised! Their extensive inventory had many options for the adaptor I needed. The price was good, the shipping was reasonable and most of all, they had it On-Hand! Etrailer will be my first stop from now on! Thanks, Etrailer.com!

I spoke to sales agent Donna to order a hitch and associated equipment for a 2016 Honda CRV we just purchased.

  • How Far Does the 1 1/4 Shank Extend Into the 2 Shank of the Extender?
    The 1-1/4" shank portion of the Tow Ready Hitch Adapter part # 80300 extends into the 2" portion 1-3/16". It is a hollow design allowing 1-1/4" accessories to be slid in and secured.

  • Trailer Hitch Extension For Bike Rack To Clear Opened Tailgate On Toyota Tundra
    You will find that opening a tail gate all the way is just not possible with a hitch mounted bike carrier on a pickup truck. Since the tail gate extends so fat beyond the bumper when opened it would require a bike carrier to almost lay flat. Using any adapter or extension in your trailer hitch will reduce the capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. An adapter like part # 80300 would extend the hitch and possibly give you the clearance you need for your Kuat bike carrier. This...

  • Adapter Recommendation to Allow a 1-1/4 Inch Bike Rack Be Used in a 2 Inch Hitch
    You have a couple options, you could use the Hitch Adapter 2" to 1-1/4" # 80300 that you referenced, but this style of adapter will reduce the capacity of your hitch by 50 percent and will push your bike rack out further from the rear of your vehicle. Another option is an adapter like Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" # HT02. This will fit inside the hitch and will allow you to carry your rack. This would be the route I would go.

  • Receiver Reducer Will Not Fit Draw-Tite Hitch
    I see that you ordered Draw-Tite # 75758 and Hitch Adapter # 80300. I confirmed with the manufacturer that these will work well together and should not have any fitment issues. It is possible that there is a small flaw in the welding of the receiver or adapter that could be causing the adapter to not slide into the receiver all the way. I would shine a flashlight into the receiver and see if there is piece of metal in the way causing interference that could possibly be filed down. If not,...

  • How Far Does 1-1/4" Shank Extend Inside 2" Portion of Shank?
    The smaller side of the Tow Ready # 80300 reducer extends 1-3/8" inside of the bigger side and is then welded on all four sides. This is a heavy-duty item! If you care to know, that leaves 5-5/8" on the big side open. I have attached a link to this page and to a video review.

  • Can Hidden Hitch 2 Inch Hitch Reducer be Used When Towing
    The hitch adapter could be used while towing. Normally we would suggest purchasing a 2 inch ballmount with the correct size ball rather than use an adapter. Brophy part # HT02 would be a better choice of a reducer as a sleeve is stronger and will not reduce the capacity. You have to make sure you do not exceed the capacities of the 1-1/4 inch ball mount or the ball. The best solution and the one I recommend would be to use a proper 2 inch ball mount.

  • Thule T2 Bike Rack with 1-1/4 Inch Shank Compatibility with 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    You are correct that a 2 inch hitch receiver is a better option when available for your vehicle. The ability to use a wider variety of accessories is one of the biggest draws but they are normally rated for higher capacities as well when compared to a 1-1/4 inch receiver. Your Thule T2 with 1-1/4 inch shank similar to the newer T2 Classic # TH9045 will be able to use your 2 inch receiver. Most racks that are designed for use with both 2 inch and 1-1/4 inch hitch receivers will use...

The Yakima hold up requires either the 2 inch shank or the 1-1/4 inch shank. You will not be able to use the 1-1/4 inch tongue # 8880581 with an adapter for compatibility with the 2 inch receiver.

  • Recommended Hitch Reducer and Lock for Thule Bike Rack
    Starting with the hitch adapter for the 2 inch hitch receiver on your vehicle, I actually recommend going with the Brophy Hitch Reducer # HT02 instead of the Tow Ready # 80300 that you referenced. The reason for this is that the Tow Ready adapter, when in use, is going to reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50%. Depending on the weight of your bike rack and bikes, this option may result in you overloading the capacity of the trailer hitch. For example, if the hitch...

  • Adapting a Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack with a 1-1/4 Inch Shank for a 2 Inch Hitch
    The adapter, part # 80300 is likely not a great fit, as it will reduce your hitch's tongue weight by 50% and may make your rack entirely unusable because your hitch won't have the capacity to carry anything else. Instead, I recommend a little more involved process that will preserve the rack's capacity. You can replace your tongue/stinger with part # 8880580. This will swap the 1-1/4 tongue with a 2-inch tongue by reinstalling the tongue. This has the benefit of behaving exactly like...

But if the trailer you want to tow has a 2-inch coupler, this just means that it requires a 2-inch hitch ball like # A-82 which will work in ball mount # C45521. This is the recommend ball mount for the Curt Class I hitch. You do not need any sort of adapter to use a 2-inch hitch ball on your Mini. In cases when a hitch...

  • Will etrailer.com Locking Hitch Pin Work For 2 Inch To 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Adapter
    If you are using a 2 inch to 1-1/4 inch adapter like part # 80300 on your hitch you are correct that the 5/8 inch pin would be the correct pin for the 2 inch shank. For the 1-1/4 inch end of the adapter, the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # e98879 will work well. You can take a quick measurement of the 1-1/4 inch end of the adapter.

    The Thule T2, # TH9045, extends out a good distance by itself (18 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest bike carrier rail) but if that is not enough you could use an extender. However, the use of an extender and reducer will decrease the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. Using just a reducer sleeve, such as # HT02, will provide you with just 3 inches extension but since it is not a true extension it will not reduce the tongue weight capacity...

    I don't know how much space additional length you need but the shortest option is reducer sleeve # HT02 which will give you 3 additional inches beyond the hitch pin hole on the hitch on your 2015 Toyota FJ Cruiser. So on the T2 Classic # TH9045 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on the hitch to the nearest part of the rack when folded will be 6-1/2 inches. The next shortest is # 80300 which adds another 7 inches. If you are able to use adapter # HT02 it will not reduce...

  • Can I use This Adapter To Use my Tule 1-1/4 T2 Bike Rack with My 2 Inch Hitch
    Thule does not recommend using the aluminum adapter with the 1 1/4 inch T2 bike rack. We do offer adapters which would allow you to use the rack in a 2 inch receiver. You could use Brophy part # HT02 or Hidden Hitch part # 80300. Part 80300 will decrease the hitch tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. If the hitch offers a 300 lbs tongue weight capacity the rack and bikes combined cannot exceed 150 lbs when using an adapter.

    The solution would be go get a hitch reducer, these reducers will fit into a 2 inch hitch receiver one end, and also fit your bike rack that is 1-1/4" on the other end, as there are no 1-1/4 inch hitch receivers for that vehicle. The Hitch Reducer # HT02 Measures 3" from center of pin hole to center of pin hole. There is also an adapter that measures 7" from pin hole to pin hole # 80300.

For that I highly recommend the Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HT02 which is a sleeve that you fit right in your hitch so it is a very simple, very effective way to use your bike rack. You will need Pin and Clip # PC3 to secure the reducer to your hitch.

Using an adapter reduces your tongue weight by 50%, so remember that if you plan on towing heavier accessories with a 1-1/4" shank. If you are worried about sway, then you need an adapter that has a shorter shank. I recommend the Curt Adapter, part # C45770. It only has 4" between the center of one hitch pin hole to the other.
