Video Transcript for Review of Yakima Hitch Adapters - Hitch Extender - Y69VR

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this Yakima seven and a quarter-inch long StraightShot Hitch Extension for two-inch hitches. Now, this adapter will extend your trailer hitch receiver opening about seven and a quarter inches away from the rear of your vehicle. So this is ideal for vehicles with spare tires, recessed hitches, van doors, or tailgates. This will let you mount a bike rack without removing your spare, or create extra clearance for your trailer. Now, this does secure to a two-inch hitch receiver using the included threaded hitch bolt, washer, and clip, and they even give you a wrench to tighten it down with.

So what we're going to do now is I'm gonna show you how this installs. I happened to pull a example of a two-inch hitch receiver. You can see right here we've got a ball mount in it, and it's normally held in with just the pin and the clip. So, we'll take the ball mount out and the pin and the clip. And there's your two-inch by two-inch hitch receiver.

And then this extension, again, will slide in there. And what you'll want to do is, you can see there's a side here that has the threaded portion on it, so you just sort of slide that in, line that up with the hitch pin hole, and then you'll take your threaded hitch bolt, and then you want to make sure it's on the same side that you have the threaded block on, and then you'll just go ahead and start turning that. Let me turn it this way so you'll be able to see. And you can see, as you start twisting that and turning it, it'll start threading it down. And then what'll happen is, what's nice about this is, when you install this and start tightening it down, and, again, they include the wrench, so once you get this tightened down, it's actually pulling that hitch extension up against the inside of the hitch receiver and it'll eliminate any vibration, any rattle.

So it's an anti-rattle hitch pin also. And there you go, we got that snug down pretty good. So you can see that's not moving anywhere. So anything you put in there will not this won't cause it to rattle around or come loose. Once it's all tightened down, then you just take the clip for extra security, slide that clip on there and it holds it all in place.

You're all ready to go. Now this is a durable steel construction, has a nice black powder coat finish, which is rust resistant. Now this is not to be used on any RVs or trailers and it's not to be used for towing. Application as you, as we've mentioned it fits a two-inch by two-inch trailer hitch receiver. Once it's installed, it'll give you an extended version of that two-inch by two-inch hitch receiver. So what we're going to do now is we're going to go ahead and just remove it, and I'll give you some measurements. And again, that's a nice feature that they do include this wrench for ya. So you can just keep that with it. You don't have to always search around for a ratchet or socket. And then once you get that all unloosened, there we go. Once the lock washers unloosened then you'll be able to thread it all the way out. Once you get it threaded out and you can slide it right out and we'll put that back down there. So, a few measurements on this. The overall length on this from one end to the other end is 12 and three-quarter inches. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of this hitch pin hole. Basically it's the amount of extension you're going to gain is right at seven and a quarter inches. And the weight on this is just over eight pounds, only about eight point six pounds. And again, it does come with your threaded hitch bolt, washer, clip and the installation wrench. But that should do it for the review on the Yakima seven and a quarter inch long StraightShot Hitch Extension for two-inch hitches..

Well made hitch and easily fit into my Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover for 2" Hitch Receivers. However I had to remove the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover for 2" Hitch Receivers in order for it to properly fit as the hitch silencer took up about 1/8" or so of space preventing installation.

Showed up and planned. Good quality. Works well.

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Hitch Adapters

  • What is the Max Tongue Weight of the Yakima StraightShot Y69VR?
    I spoke to Yakima, but they have not maxed out the StraightShot # Y69VR as of yet, so could not tell me the max capacity. With that being said, this is designed to be used with Yakima bike racks which are going to weigh quite a bit less than 320 pounds. Though all extenders like this will cut the tongue weight of your hitch in half, I do suggest going with the Curt # C45791.

  • Hitch Extension Options
    We have the Yakima StraightShot Hitch Extension, # Y69VR and the RockyMounts Hitch Extender, # RKY10008, among others. The problem however is that most manufacturers state these type products are not to be used with accessories on RV hitches. The amount of sway the back of many RV's receive can cause a lot of torque to be placed on the hitch. There are other similar items such as these two but be aware of the recommendation to not use on an RV. Your best bet is to consider shifting how...

  • 2" Bike Rack Hitch Extender With Anti-Rattle Lock For A Thule Apex 4 Bike Rack
    I recommend the Brophy Hitch Extender # HE06 with a Stainless Steel Locking, Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin # SR25219 for your 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe. The Yakima StraightShot # Y69VR does not offer a locking pin that is threaded to match, and the Curt Extender # C45791 uses a solid shank meaning you would have to use a separate lock and anti-rattle mechanism. These will allow you to secure the hitch into the receiver on your Hyundai, so that your Thule Apex XT 4 Bike Rack # TH9025XT...

  • 2 1/2” Ball Mount Extension for Tailgate Clearance
    I have a solution for your tailgate clearance issue but we do not have a 2 1/2" extension that doesn't reduce that is also around the length you are looking for. I recommend going with an extended ball mount. Item # BZ20 is the Brophy Ball Mount for 2-1/2" hitches it has 3/4" rise or 2" drop and is 13-1/4" long. I have linked a review video.

  • Can I Use the TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray with a Hitch Extender
    Typically when you start using adapters to extend away from the cross tube of your hitch, it gets weaker; in most cases you'll lose around 50% of the tongue weight of the hitch when you use an extension or adapter of any type. If you've got a heavy duty hitch that you're wanting to carry the 16x21 TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray for 2" Hitches - 200 lbs # TLA7901 on this might not be a big deal since you only need about 250-lbs, but it should be noted. If you don't already...

  • Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation For Two Heavy E-bikes On A 2015 Lexus RX 350
    Your RadRover 5 weighs 69 lbs and your Eunorau 48V250W+350W FAT-AWD All Wheel Drive bike weighs 77 lbs. Both of these bikes exceed the weight limit of the Thule EasyFold XT. In fact, even if you remove the battery of the Eunorau, it will still exceed the weight limit of the EasyFold XT. So it is important that your hitch receiver has a large maximum tongue weight to support the bikes. Now I do have a hitch receiver recommendation for your 2015 Lexus RX 350.
