Video Transcript for Jacko Enterprises Hitch Aligners - Rods and Lights - JE00600 Review

Today we are going to demonstrate the Easy-Hitch Light-Up Hitch Aligning System, part number JE00600. This hitch aligning system makes attaching to your trailer a one person job. By putting one of the hitch aligning rods onto the tow vehicle hitch ball and one onto the coupler of the trailer, you can simply let the light up LED ends of the aligning rods do the backing up for you. These retractable hitch aligners are unique in that they have a light up LED end to them, which will help align the vehicle and the trailer in the dark. 0:30

We are going to go through a quick demonstration and show you how this easy aligning tool works. Well, the first thing that you want to do when you are hooking up your tow vehicle to your trailer is to make sure that the trailer coupler itself is taller than your hitch ball. You can use your aligning tool to quickly check that. What you want to do is simply take the piece and set it on the ground, rise the rod up to where it is even with the top of the hitch ball and then go to your trailer. Make sure that your aligning rod is shorter than the coupler. 0:56

Next, we will take one of the aligning rods and set it right on top of the hitch ball. Go ahead and extend that out. Next we will take the second rod, set it right on top of the coupler and, again, extend it out. And, if you are trying to hook up at night and want to use your flashing LEDs at the top, simply take it and twist the top clockwise until it turns on. With the aligning rods in place, we can go ahead and back up our tow vehicle now, until our hitch aligning rod that is on our tow vehicle hitch ball makes contact with the coupler on the trailer. When contact is made, we know that our hitch ball is properly aligned under the coupler. There you have it for the Light-Up Telescoping Hitch Aligning System, part number JE00600.

The trailer hookup assist lights come with batteries and extra batteries, but they are not bright enough to help my husband. 637428

This did not work as hoped. The reflector would not stand up on the trailer hitch, so was impossible to use. 616764



- JE00600
by:

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. 619908

They are OK but one on tow vehicle always fell over. I gave them away since we got a new tow vehicle with factory back-up camera. 260401



- JE00600
by:

The product concept is solid. However, the telescoping rods are too short for the tailgate on my pickup and my trailer tongue to be visible to the driver. This renders the product useless to me. 489623



- JE00600
by:

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. 91286

Works great....as long as the wind is not blowing. Also, I do not need assistance from my wife to hookup....she has limited patience. I have recommended this product. 391134

by:

These little guys work great when no one else is around to help you hitch up. While not a substitute for a backup camera, they really help get lined up. I was surprised how accurate they are. 368372

I bought this product to assist in backing to my 5th wheel by myself. Works great. etrailer delivered this product fast! Great service 441228

Etrailer has always been good to work with. These are a great idea and work very well. Just be easy on them as they are light duty but they do what I hoped they would! 252576

This simple and inexpensive product is great. Saves a lot of time with trial and error hitching, 581089

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! 300980

Great product. Liked it had extra batteries. Magnets are strong. It is very compact. Arrived quickly. I would recommend it to a friend. 300972

You can't even see the tip over the tail gate when there fully extended 468427

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! 521926



- JE00600
by:

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. 597264



- JE00600
by:

The product arrived a few days ago. It seems like a great idea, but I found that the telescoping function on one device broke the second time I opened it. It just came apart. One of the two tiny shims inside disappeared. In addition, only one of the devices had a working light. I will be returning the item. Two stars = great idea, poor quality. I would be willing to pay for better quality and will look elsewhere. 442825

by:

I have to say money well spend. I'm single and a woman to hock up my camper I always asked a friend to be my eyes while I backed up. Not anymore. I don't need anybody. I would suggest this to everyone to get it! I love it. 431272



- 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. 351010

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. 318423

Seems like a nice product. I have not used it yet but I can tell it will be worth its weight in gold when I need to hook up the trailer in the dark. It came with a storage bag and extra batteries which was a suprise. very satisfied 61808



- JE00600

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. 656253

  • 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...

  • 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).
