etrailer cargo carrier

This stop collar automatically aligns the hitch pin holes on a hitch-mounted accessory and your 1-1/4" hitch. It's perfect for bike racks, cargo carriers, or any other 1-1/4" accessory and it can be split and placed on the shank to avoid any impediments. It installs quickly and, once installed, it doesn't need further adjustment. Installing your favorite accessory in a trailer hitch receiver has never been easier.


Automatic Pin Hole Alignment

etrailer cargo carrier

The collar automatically aligns the hitch pin holes on your favorite 1-1/4" accessory and a 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver every time you install it. It prevents you from having to bend down or stick your finger into the hole to check for alignment. It also eases the burden of installing a heavy accessory, like a cargo carrier, that's hard to wiggle forward or back in small increments.


Easy, One-Time Installation

The stop collar easily installs on most 1-1/4" accessories and once installed, it doesn't have to be adjusted - set it and forget it. To install, just slide the collar onto the accessory's 1-1/4" shank, insert the shank into your hitch, align the pin holes, slide the collar up against your hitch, and tighten down both hand knobs. If there are any impediments simply unscrew the knobs, split the collar into 2 pieces, and put it back together past the point of impediment.

Video Transcript for etrailer Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Hitch Pin Alignment Collar Review

AJ: What's up everybody It's AJ, with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be checking out this hitch aligner. Now this is for 1-1/4 hitches. And this is going to do, is this collar is going to go around whatever accessory you're putting in your 1-1/4 hitch and help you line up perfect every single time. So let me go ahead and pull this out and show you what I'm talking about.So normally you have to look on the side as you put this ball mount in it to kind of see, Oh, is that hole lined up And you can go too far in, and you have to do it over and over again. With this collar, I can just do that.

I'm not even looking. The holes lined up. And it's right every single time. One of the nicer things about it is that it's easier to install. You just have these hand knobs, you can loosen up, and you can completely loosen them.

You can slide it off like that. You could loosen one side and just kind of swing this bracket over and do it that way if it's already installed in the vehicle, you can easily do that.There's no tools involved at all. So I really liked that part. So you just need this to put it on your accessory, and tighten down with your hands. We have one that works for two inch hitches, so there's a lot of accessories.

I really like these with cargo carriers, on the bigger ones, because you're already lifting that big thing up, trying to slide it in the hitch and then to align it, you just keep missing that hole, you have to kind of looked to the side. It can be a real pain. So I'm glad that they made it for 1-1/4 too to make these accessories just as easy.Now to show you what I'm talking about. We're going to get a little bit bulkier of a bike rack and see how that works. We've got the hitch align collar loosely installed on here.

That way I can just line up the anti-rattle bolt hole with the hole in the hitch. So this is going to kind of show you how long it takes to do this on your own. You got to work it in there. You can see that lines up pretty good there. Then you make sure anti-rattle pin goes in.It's hard to go in there. So I think that's lined up right there. So what I'm going to do is tighten this down on both sides. Give it a couple extra turns, it doesn't have to be super tight, but I want to make sure it doesn't go anywhere when it hits the edge of the hitch here. And now I can show you by taking it back out. The collar will hit the hitch here, I didn't have to look, now I know that's lined up, going to add my anti-rattle bolt.And once you're getting that installed once, it's going to be that easy every single time. You can just slide it in there and wait for it to hit the collar. And you know it's all lined up, then you can add that bolt in there. I can't recommend this enough. I really liked that it's added on to a bunch of the bike racks and cargo carriers that Etrailer has. The two inch one, so if you're looking for something like that, we offer that one too. You can get that for those two inch accessories. If that's what you're looking for as well. Either way, it's a really good investment. And it's going to help you to save time before you go on your adventures. Well, thanks for hanging out. And I hope this helped..

Just installed the Hitch Pin Alignment and seems to work fine except that it slips out of alignment when installing. When tightening it moves around too much. A suggestion would be to line the interior with a piece of rubber to keep it from slipping and to protect from scratching the hitch. Overall it will save time and frustration with the hitch alignment.

Review from a similar Hitch Pin Alignment Collar in Hitch Aligners


I received the item as promised. I was kept in the loop as to its status: order received, shipped and expected delivery date. I had a pop-up camper for 7 years, and I think of all the time that was wasted trying to line up the holes for the pin. I wish I had known about this sooner. But at least with the 2 inch hitch & weight distribution bars, which are very heavy and the hitch itself has to weigh 70 lbs! at least. This is SO perfect, insert, one and done ! Perfect every time !! I'll be bragging about this all year !

Review from a similar Hitch Pin Alignment Collar in Hitch Aligners


If you're a fumble-fingers as I am, you'll be glad to hear that installation of this collar was as easy as advertised. The only tip I'd share is try to tighten both wing nuts equally before tightening each individually. I haven't yet removed the bike rack from the hitch, so I can't report whether this device works as it should. The online purchasing process went smoothly, and Etrailer mailed the item promptly, with an email this morning that the item would be delivered today. Good business!

Could have used a simple square bend u-bolt to help align my bike rack with my trailer hitch, but the etrailer is so much easier to adjust and just plain looks nicer.

Review from a similar Hitch Pin Alignment Collar in Hitch Aligners


Put it on my Thule upright bike rack. Saves the effort of having to line up the hole - I admit it, I'm getting lazy. But it makes it easier to pop the rack on and off quickly. Worth the $xx.xx

Review from a similar Hitch Pin Alignment Collar in Hitch Aligners


Tried it out in the hitch receiver. Have not towed with it, but that should not matter as this device its to help install the ball mount and get it in the correct position, so that the pin goes right in. I have one for each of my ball mounts (2). Now I just slide the ball mount ito the receiver and insert pin, and I do not have to get down on the ground to align the holes for the pin. That is the best part, not getting down on the ground. I also use the Curt anti-rattle devices fro both two vehicles.

Review from a similar Hitch Pin Alignment Collar in Hitch Aligners


This was a lifesaver. We had to install our cargo carrier in the middle of the night after packing all our stuff in the middle of a storm while we were camping. Having this saved me a lot of time. I would recommend this to anyone who is not going to have a cargo carrier permanently installed.

I was looking for something to assist me with a way to remember where my bike rack sits inside the receiver hitch and this is it. It locks in place and each time I slide in the rack it lines up perfectly every time.
