Video Transcript for Au-Tomotive Gold Hitch Covers - Public Service and Military - AUT-AIRW-C Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number AUT-AIRW-C, this is the US Air Force trailer hitch cover, from Automotive Gold Hitch Covers. It's going to feature the officially licensed US Air Force symbol. The hitch cover is designed to slide in to your two inch by two inch hitch, and it's going to help keep out dirt, and prevent rust, as well as add that nice, clean finished look to your hitch. Here on the front face we're going to have the 3D ABS plastic emblem. Really pops out to attract the eye. That's going to be chrome plated, so it's going to add a nice classic style.

It's also going to feature UV resistant black paint detailing. That emblem's going to sit on a polished stainless steel base, so it's going to give a mirror like shine. The base and the sleeve, or the shank, is going to made from stainless steel. It's going to be highly resistant towards rusting, corrosion. We're going to have the one piece riveted construction, so no assembly's required. It's going to come fully assembled out of the box, and ready to be installed.

The only thing that you're going to need to provide separately, is going to be the hedge pin and clip, or hedge pin and lock, to secure it in your hitch. It's going to use the standard five eighth inch pin. This is designed for two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers. We take a measurement of the sleeve length, that's going to give us a measurement of about three and a half inches. Now you can see here that it kind of has three different pinholes to choose from, that way you can chose whatever ones going to work best for your application.

Measuring from the back of that front face plate, to the center of that pinhole's going to be about one and eleven sixteenths of an inch, to center pinhole's going to be about two and three sixteenths of an inch, and to the center of that rear most pinhole, that's going to be about two and eleven sixteenths of an inch. The product is made in the USA, and it's going to be covered with a lifetime warranty. I want to go ahead and show you how it installs. Really simple insulation process. All you have to do is, take the hitch cover, feed it into your two inch by two inch opening. You're going to push it all the way in, until you get your pinholes to line up.

Now, again, you have three different pinholes to chose from, so you can chose what ever one is going to work best for your application. Now once you have that secured in there, or once you have it set in place, you'll finish securing it using your hitch pin and clip. It's going to go all the way through there, secure it on the other side with a clip, or a lock, whatever it is that you have. If you don't have that, if you don't have a hitch pin and clip, or a hitch pin and lock, you can find those here on our website. That's going to do it for our look at part number AUT-AIRW-C.

The hitch cover itself is stunning and definitely an attention getter. It's unlike the ones everyone else runs around with from the local parts store. Shipping was very fast, the cover was professionally packaged to ensure a mar free product, and the customer service is awesome. Not your typical automated emotionless emails. Awesome experience over all, would buy from these guys again. 212992

Just got this receiver cover plate and really like the looks. I'm glad I bought the rattle free locking pin assembly as I think this would be a desirable item for sticky finger individuals. Tommy, the sales rep was very nice to deal with also. Thanks to etrailer for a good product and experience. 567740

Review from a similar Au-Tomotive Gold Stainless Steel in Hitch Covers


It looks nice, the Chrome Trim around the actual Black H Logo looks and feels thin because it is. I would have preferred something a little heavier. The actual metal extension that fits into the Receiver has a lot of play/ wiggle room inside. I wrapped mine with the flat protective padding it was shipped with to help reduce the play/rattle inside the receiver. Possibly a rubberized finish be suitable vs. the metal. Would I recommend it ? Probably, It does look pretty nice in the receiver. 362590

Review from a similar Au-Tomotive Gold Stainless Steel in Hitch Covers


Overall, a little disappointed in the quality. It was made from thinner materials than I expected. Like others, I found it too loose inside the receiver and had to fabricate a spacer to keep it from rattling. Also be aware that it is more like 4" in diameter rather than the 3" stated in the description. 458870

Review from a similar Au-Tomotive Gold Stainless Steel in Hitch Covers


Very classy hitch receiver cover and great Birthday gift for my hubby, who was thrilled. When you look at back of SUV, it really stands out - not tacky but distinguished. We will see how it holds up with snow & salt, altho I scoured other reviews about corrosion resistance before I ordered, so I think this will hold up to that kind of weather. Also agonized after reading reviews about rattling & whether it would fit with standard 2" receiver and what kind of lock to buy. My concern was that my hitch receiver was a 2" square tube with welds on the very end that flared out on the sides like "wings." I did not understand how the metal prongs of the cover would fit outside and how the whole assembly would fit with a lock. I also did not have the auto available to measure diameter, full width, etc, and just took a chance to order standard 2" stuff. Well, the metal prongs of the cover fit inside (not on the outside -so no interference with the "weld wings" on the end of the receiver) and they fit into the hitch receiver walls snugly. Also my receiver has hard plastic on the end, and there is about 1/8" space between cover & hitch, so no rattles. (The other receiver cover I ordered (OU) came with a rubber spacer which was good to have for my other SUV with only metal receiver.) The 2" stainless steel (flush) 5/8" diameter hitch receiver lock 40107 works great - right dia, and length - as I need to have a little room to get my hands between bumper & recessed opening "cut out" for the trailer hitch. Any longer would have been difficult to handle the keys in the lock. Very little play and only heard rattle once when going over speed bump too fast/landed too hard. (oops - good thing that was in hubby's car!) 224798

All products bought from etrailer.com have been as advertised. All products purchased are excellent. Products purchased are, Blue ox tow receiver, 6 inch drop/rise. A very strong, well made product. Also, a set of LED tow lights, for my scooter carrier. A 'Quiet hitch lock', which ensures no movement in my hitch at all. Lastly, a hitch plug, a little bit of 'whimsy', many thanks to the reps., at etrailer.com, their knowledge and advice has been invaluable. 665941

Nice quality metal/chrome, not plastic.. Make sure you also have or buy a pin to keep it in the hitch. I have bought 3 seperate items from this company and they are fantastic! I was never one to show constant support for this country until I became aware of the deep state. 652405

Liked the look of the product, but when going through a car wash about 10 months after purchasing, the USA name plate got ripped off. Just a white blank piece of metal was left. 639986

It is recommended to remove hitch covers, roof racks, towing mirrors, etc when using automatic car washes.

The hitch cover for my Lincoln MKX fit the image of the car. It is high quality in appearance. The pin and clip provides a semi-secure way to keep it in place. Very satisfied with both products.

The hitch cover itself is just fine, sturdier center section than anticipated but some concerns about the trim ring being equally sturdy. etrailer's service, however, was exemplary and without concerns. Initially, this was back-ordered, and I received a prompt update call after placing the order. It arrived more swiftly than first projected, was very well packaged, and is precisely the right product ordered. Thank you and well done. 604537

Review from a similar Au-Tomotive Gold Stainless Steel in Hitch Covers


I gave this 4 stars, why not 5? there is nothing but one single rivet keeping it from coming apart. ONE little tiny rivet not even a screw. SO it can break again and then I will have to find a way to hold it together better using a screw with a nut. Other than that , it is quite beautiful and for $44 it should be! I actually went to our local hardware store and bought a lock pin so that no one could steal it. Now I am up to $ 56. Oh well. Sure dresses up my back side of the car. I have a friend at the Y who put in 30 years at the Air Force and I will hear from him what he thinks when he sees it. 602842
