Video Transcript for Tow Ready Hitch Adapters - Hitch Reducer - 80301 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number 80301. This is the Hidden Hitch hitch adapter. It's going to convert your two inch hitch to 1-1/4. Keep in mind that this adapter will reduce your vehicle's hitch capacity by 50%. Now your hitch pins and clips are going to be sold separately. This pin hole back here is going to measure 5/8 of an inch in diameter so that's going to require a 5/8" pin. If you don't already have one you can go ahead and pick one up on our website.

Again, sold separately with part number PC3. This pin hole right here for your 1-1/4" receiver is going to have a diameter of 1/2". If you don't already have one of those you can find a hitch pin and clip on our website with part number PC2. This unit is a steel construction with a nice black paint finish. Taking a look in the 1-1/4" receiver tube you can see all way through to the very back so you can see that the inside is completely hollow. And we take a measurement from the center of one pin hole to the center of the other it's going to give us a measurement of 14 inches from this point here to this point here. That's also going to be how far it's going extend the hitch opening out from where it currently is. Take a measurement of the overall length, measuring from end to end, that's going to give us a measurement of about 18-1/2". Now when it comes to the maximum trailer rate, it's going to be the lowest of the following: Either 50% of the towing capacity shown on the rating sticker of your trailer hitch, because remember this is going to reduce it's capacity by 50%, or the vehicle towing capacity per your owner's manual, or 3500 pounds. When it comes to the maximum tongue weight, it's going to be the lowest of the following: 50% of the tongue weight shown on the rating sticker of your trailer hitch or 300 pounds. A few more measurements.

I just want to take a measurement from the back portion here to the weld. Looks like that's going to give us a measurement of about 14 inches. And then from that weld to the opening right there on the 1-1/4" receiver tube, it's going to be about 4-1/2". You can also see here that on the opening for the 1-1/4" receiver tube it does that nice collar or that lip that goes around the opening. It's a really simple installation. All you have to do is take the adapter and place it in your 2" hitch.

You're going to push it in until your pin holes line up with one another. At this point, this is when you would install your 5/8" hitch pin and clip or hitch pin and lock. That's going to do it for our review of part number 80301. This is the Hidden Hitch hitch adapter converting your 2" hitch to 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver. .

This 2 in to 11/4 adapter worked excellent to be able to use our bike rack between our 2 vehicles. Quality of product is excellent. Would recommend this to anyone.

We needed help fast. Fla vacation approaching quick, our bike rack wasn't going to fit the RV, the extension we had wasn't the right one... what to do? Call etrailer, of course! Customer service talked us through measurements, proper tounge weight, made us aware of needed pins and hardware. Received the product fast and in time for vaca. It fit perfectly, was the right length for the extension we needed. Is sturdy enough to handle the weight we are putting on it... And, we had all the hardware we needed to install.

Very pleased with the company and product. The part came a day sooner than expected. The part itself is well made and fit without excessive gaps in the receiver that could cause noise. I was happy to see a "Made In USA" sticker on it. There have been so many foreign made products lately so when this had a USA sticker on it (it may sound silly but) it made me proud to own it.

  • Recommended Extended 2" to 1-1/4" Hitch Adapter For 2015 Jeep Wrangler With Yakima Bike Rack
    I would be happy to recommend a 2" to 1-1/4" extended hitch adapter for you. Since your 2015 Jeep Wrangler's spare tire gets in the way of bike racks I recommend the Tow Ready Hitch Adapter # 80301 which will allow the 1-1/4" Yakima bike rack you have to work in the 2" hitch on your Jeep. The Tow Ready # 80301 will extend 14" to allow your bike rack to clear the spare tire. Keep in mind that using a hitch adapter will reduce the tongue weight rating of your hitch by 50%. I included...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda CR-V to Use 2 inch Hitch Bike Rack
    We have the # HTAD which converts a 1-1/4 inch hitch to a 2 inch hitch but since these adapters cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent and add some movement this isn't an ideal solution. Instead the customers best option would be a 2 inch hitch like the # 76128 which will work directly with the bike rack.

  • Using Hitch Adapter, part # 80301 with hitch for 2008 Toyota Sequoia
    Yes, this will work for you. This adapter, part # 80301, will convert a 2-inch hitch to a 1-1/4 inch hitch opening. That said, one concern is that it will cut your hitch tongue weight in half. So if your 2008 Sequoia has a 600 lb tongue weight (tongue weight is usually 10 percent of your hitch capacity), then with the adapter, your tongue weight will be reduced to 300 lbs. This is still plenty to use with your bike rack, just keep in mind that the 300 lbs includes the weight of the bikes...

  • Recommended Hitch Adapter to Extend and Reduce 2 Inch Receiver on Subaru Crosstrek
    For the 2 inch hitch receiver on your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek, I recommend looking at the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter # MT70033. This adapter will slide right into your existing 2 inch receiver and provide a 1-1/4 inch receiver on the other end for use with compatible accessories. It also features an overall length of 11 inches and a 7 inch measurement from the hitch pin hole on your current trailer hitch to the hitch pin hole on the adapter. If you need a bit more extension,...
