Does what it says it’s gonna do. It makes lining up the truck and trailer a lot easier. Are use them every single time I hook up the trailer and now hook up time is quicker and easier


Comments
I use the yellow ball the most in the bed of my tuck to hook up my gooseneck hitch. I have an auxiliary tank next to the cab, so with this...honestly, i can hook up the truck on the first try. Just stick the magnet to the ball, and line it up with the cupler. Knock the ball over and you are all set. I use a long grabber to reach into the bed of the truck to pick it up and then lower my LQ trailer down onto my truck. Love this thing. Best invention ever!!! The lighted ones...well they are ok.. but hard to see through shaded windows, they are small and do not light up very well. But still helps.

Was disappointed in the overall quality of this product. One of the lights’ battery had leaked and corroded the contacts. I was able to make it work by cleaning the contact but it does not blink as bright as the other one. I feel this product was overpriced and would not purchase this again.



- JE00600
by:

These work fairly well. Sometimes I'm just a little off and have to try again. In lousy weather, they could stand to be brighter. Otherwise, they work as advertised for lining up my trailer. I've used them infrequently so that might account for me being a little off at times. I'd buy them again and would recommend them with the above caveats.



- JE00600

This makes hooking up the trailer a whole lot easier by myself. not needing to climb in and out to see how the hitch ball ant trailer are aligned

by:

About a week after I received this one of the markers/lights fell off the top of the unit. I can still use it but it's definitely broken. Overall, definitely improves how one connects a trailer to a hitch when alone. Takes all the guesswork out of it.



- JE00600
by:

Two stars because it does help line up My gooseball with the trailer, but only in the daylight. The lighted feature never worked even after I replaced batteries.



- JE00600
by:

Product does not extend enough to be seen over the spare tire on my Jeep Unlimited. I am contemplating how to modify to make it work Also, one blinking light did not work from the box. Even changing the batteries did not fix. Then I noted that a thin piece of wire at the bottom of the light holder did not come into contact with the battery. After some effort I did manage to get it to make contact and now works as advertised.

No complaints. Thanks.

It will not stand up on a curved surface such as a round trailer ball. Works fine on flat surfaces. I would not recommend buying.



- JE00600

These are a cool little product that provides a solution for a few things. I didn't buy these for aligning my trailer and hitch, instead, I want to use them as guides to get my boat trailer down to the water. I have a hard time with mirrors and my truck has a hard top bed cover. This makes it hard to get my trailer to the water when I am pulling my boat out. I put one on each side of the back of my trailer and I can see no problem. My only nit-pick is that the magnets could be much stronger.



- JE00600

I did a rare thing and read the manufacture instructions before using. The Easy-Hitch (EH) Light-Up Hitch Aligner has a small round magnetic bases. One of the EH's will be placed on top of the ball hitch, the other on the top of the ball hitch receiver. Using the extended rods as alignment guides you simply back up until the hitch receiver bumps the EH off the hitch ball, back and bump method. Cannot get much easier or effective that this. The small bases are strong enough to hold the rods in place but week enough to allow the rod base to release, when bumped, without damaging the extendable rod assembly. I have used the tennis ball alignment devices in the past but do not think they work as good as the back and bump method. I also like the compactness and easy storability of the EH. It was day time when a friend came over to borrow my trailer and we tried out the EH. We did not need the LED light and he said he did not need the EH because he had a backup camera. He was using both the EH and camera when he noticed the EH rod disappear and hit his breaks. He thought the EH was pretty neat and used it the rest of the time he had my trailer. I tested the LED's to insure they functioned and they did. The LED's are of secondary importance to me. The back and bump is of primary importance followed by compact storability. Neat little unit.

The idea behind this is excellent. But the product is cheap. The set to arrive came apart when I tried to extend one of them and the other one would only open part way. I contacted etrailer and they were excellent (wonderful customer service), they immediately sent out another set at no cost to me. Unfortunately the second set was just as worthless. Only one would open up and the other one fell apart with spring inside popping out when I tried to extend it. Too bad! Did not contact etrailer again as I felt they had been more than fair.

This is a nice easy tool for backing up accurately to our goose neck and standard trailers.

The product is great and just what I was looking for but one red globe was slightly crunched during the first shipment. I contacted etrailer only asking for a new globe but they insisted on sending a full replacement and allowed me to keep the first shipment for spare parts. I received the replacement package yesterday in perfect shape and I'm very impressed with their customer service! I will be using etrailer in the future!

The lighted hitch aligner arrived with super speed. Following the instructions on the product card, I could easily place the towing ball under the trailer cup. Back slowly, and when the front alignment wand moves, you're there. It even comes with a little nylon pouch to store them in. It fits neatly in the door pocket of the pickup truck. Batteries were already installed and extra LR 41 button batteries were taped in the packaging. The person on the phone was so friendly and helpful. This is a store to add to your computer favorites, men.

This product is lame. I used a few times then one of the 2 pieces fell and broke during backing up --- not rugged enough at all. Lasted maybe a few months then they were broken and useless and in the trash.



- JE00600

I was surprised how easy this product makes it to align the ball to the trailer at night, solo.

Product delivery was very quick and in excellent condition, as described. Product was well packaged. Will buy from this company again. Thank you.

Haven't used it yet but the idea is really helpful. I didn't know what I was looking for exactly so when I found these, they fit what I needed precisely. Delivered in a timely fashion. I will continue to use etrailer for my trailering needs

I still like the product but could use teice the length for my new truck.

It does work but it just needs a wider magnet on the bottom. Falls over a little too easily.



- JE00600
by:

I bought this product to use on those occasions when I need to hook trailer to suv alone. It worked just as described in video. So easy! I actually also use it when I have human assistance as having a visual target of my own makes this process even easier. I love that it collapses so small for storage (unlike the yellow ball counterparts that are out there on the market.) The little storage pouch is a real bonus!



- JE00600
by:

Perfect for my needs.



- JE00600
by:

Works great if on very smooth ground, no breezes and one does not brake to quick and only gracefully step on the gas. If one of the above happens they will fall off. They should sale them with a roll of duct tape.

  • Solution for Lining Truck Up with Gooseneck Trailer that has Fuel Tank in Bed
    I definitely agree that you will want to take extreme precaution when lining up your Ford F-250 with a gooseneck trailer for hookup with a fuel tank behind the cab. The Easy-Hitch Telescoping Hitch Aligner # JE00600 that you referenced is a good idea to help with this process. You can mount one of the telescoping rods onto the gooseneck ball in your truck bed and when the gooseneck coupler hits the rod you know you are lined up and you don't need to go any further. The rod can telescope...

  • How To Use the Light-Up Telescoping Hitch Aligner with an Aluminum Ball Mount
    In order to use the Easy-Hitch Light-Up, Telescoping Hitch Aligner part # JE00600 with either your Weigh Safe Aluminum Ball Mount or Rapid Hitch Aluminum Ball Mount you will need to either place the aligner directly atop the hitch ball or on the receiver tube between the bumper and ball mount (see photo). The aligner however will not be able to be attached to the shank because it has a magnetic base that will not work with aluminum. If the above will not work for you then your only...

  • Magnetic Strength of Easy-Hitch Light-Up Hitch Aligner # JE00600
    The Easy-Hitch Light-Up Hitch Aligner # JE00600 that you referenced feature a strong enough magnetic base that it will attach to the hitch ball even if it has already been lubricated. If it's bumped during the hookup process it will likely cause enough of a jolt for the rod to release from the ball but they are durable enough to survive. I have attached customer review in which he describes the proper method of actually intentionally bumping the rod off the ball to ensure proper alignment,...

  • Recommended Trailer Lighting for Kayak Trailer with Additional Post Style Lights
    The Easy-Hitch Light-Up, Telescoping Hitch Aligner # JE00600 is a great option for aligning hitches and giving you a visual guide, but you cannot use them while driving. The magnets are simply not strong enough for travel and could become a road hazard. For the post style lighting you desire, I recommend the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons with LED Lights for Boat Trailers # CE27740. For your trailer wiring, you can use the Submersible Light Kit # TL5RK or the LED Kit # TLL9RK. Either...
