Video Transcript for License Frame Hitch Covers - OEM - FOVHC-12 Review

Today, we're going to be reviewing part number FOVHC-12. This is the Baron and Baron Ford Escape Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover for 2" hitches. It's an officially licensed product. It's going to slide into your 2" by 2" hitch. It's going to help keep out dirt and grime as well as corrosion, and it's going to add a nice, finished look to the hitch. You're going to have two pinhole locations to best fit your application.

It's going to feature the Blue Ford logo as well as, "ESCAPE," written in black right here. It's going to sit on a nice, chrome-plated base, so it's going to add a lot of style. It's going to add a really nice look to your vehicle. The base and the shank are going to be made from a stainless steel construction, so they're going to be highly resistant towards rust and corrosion. You're going to get three different size foam gaskets that sit in between the back of the plate here and the opening of your hitch. It's going to provide a nice, tight fit as well as reduce any wobble or rattle that you may experience as you travel down the road.

It's also going to come with your locking bolt set. This is going to secure the cover to the hitch. It uses a really unique tool for installation and removal, so it's also going to help prevent theft because it's going to be highly unlikely that somebody else has a tool that's similar to this one. They're not going to be able to remove the cover from your vehicle. Again, it is designed for 2" by 2" trailer hitch receivers. We're going to take a measurement of the front face, starting with the overall length.

It's going to measure about 6". Measuring this direction, edge to edge, we're looking about 3 1/4". Really simple installation. For our installation today, we're going to go ahead and use all three foam gaskets here. They just slide over the shank portion. Now, for your application, you may only need to use one, two, or you may need to use all three.

It just depends. inaudible 00:01:56 all three of them on there. Then, we'll go and slide it into our hitch. We have that shank portion. It simply just slides into the receiver opening. Once we have our pinholes lined up, we'll go ahead and install our locking bolt set. These two pieces simply just thread together. We'll get that hand tight, and then we can finish the securing process with the included tools. You can see there, it has a nice look. One of the thing . Excuse me. One of the things I really like about the locking bolt set is that it has a really nice, sleek design. We don't have too much sticking out on each side of the hitch, so you don't have to worry about any extra long pins and clips or pins and locks. It adds a really nice, sleek design. Those foam gaskets are going to take up that slack right there that we have between the opening of our hitch and the back of that front plate, which, again, is going to provide a nice, tight fit as well as take out any rattle or wobble that we may experience as we travel down the road. That's going to do it for today's look at part number FOVHC-12.

last year I bought a crome trailer hitch cover for my new Ford Escape. The quality of this hitch cover exceeded my expectation. It stands out - above any trailer hitch cover that I have ever seen on any vehicle. I would highly recommend this hitch cover to everyone. Art Orr

Product seems to be good quality ,sturdy. But came with parts missing-the two unique wrenches to lock and unlock the locking bolt. Called etrailer and they were very efficient,said they were going to expedite sending me the missing parts. If they do ,and they get here in a reasonable period of time, I will probably upgrade the rating.

Review from a similar OEM in Hitch Covers


I have a set of Rock Tamer mud flaps that attach to my Class V hitch using a reducer. This adds about an inch of overall distance to the pin. No one that I know of makes a hitch cover that fits a Class IV or V hitch, and no one makes one with a shank that is long enough to work with my setup. I researched all of the brands that etrailer sells, and found this LFI brand had some possibilities. With the shank being attached to the plate with screws, I should be able to make a spacer and make this work. I cut a 1" piece of a 2" square tube that I salvaged from a piece of an old 5th wheel landing gear, and added it to the shank. I drilled a new hole in the shank and now have a hitch cover that I can use with or without my mud flaps. It would be great if I could get a longer shank from etrailer or from LFI preferably with no holes so I could custom drill my own, or with pre-drilled holes to my specification. Short of that, my solution works very well for my needs. Once again, etrailer came through, it just took a couple of hours of extra work. I am very happy with my final product. One other comment on the Class IV and Class V hitch. I like the "locking" pin that was included with this cover, however it is too short to work with the Class IV or V hitch. I wish they would supply a pin that is long enough to work with the hitch this particular cover would ultimately be used on.

Review from a similar OEM in Hitch Covers


Hitch cover came in Ford OEM packaging stating that it was for a 2" hitch. However, original order was for an 1-1/4". Contacted eTrailer.com customer support. They checked the part number, and told me to open package. The cover was, indeed, for an 1-1/4" hitch. Did have an issue with securing the locking pin to the hitch. Had to remove 1-3/8" material from one of the locking wrench keys (These 2 keys have a specially cut triangular bit). This allowed me to secure the locking pin/cover. eTrailer Customer Service is the best. They are very courteous, as well as, knowledgeable and helpful. The product is 1st Class Ford OEM, and am very happy with the purchase. Would definitely purchase from them again, and recommend them to a friend.


Comments
The Hitch Cover is exactly what I needed for my Ford Explorer. The previous one got damaged, when I backed into a light pole. The hitch portion was made out of plastic. Yours is all metal, and still looks great even after a year. Thanks, for the follow-up, and look forward to doing business with ETrailer.com in the future!

Review from a similar OEM in Hitch Covers


This is a recap of my first experience with etrailer.com and an order for the customized MKX Hitch-Cover. Please read through to the end; it's all good. I placed my order and saw several shipping options with various price-points. Without any explanation of how long each would take or improve transit times, I picked Priority Mail. Shortly, I received an email confirmation that it would "ship" in about seven days. Hmmm? I replied that I needed it DELIVERED in about seven days. Within minutes, I get a response that it would be to their warehouse in two days and would be sent UPS Ground with assurance that would get it to me in two days. Michelle even credited back the difference between Priority and Ground. Nice. True to her promise, the unit delivered in four days. Yea! Not so fast, it didn't fit into my 2" hitch receiver. The insert was 1/8" too wide. I sent photos of the unit sitting on a ruler to show the problem. Now, I was down to two days before my trip. Michelle had her team pull units off the shelf and measure them. All were within spec, thankfully. A replacement unit was sent and arrived in the nick-of-time. She also provided a prepaid return label. I love the look of my MKX Hitch-Cover! I loved the service and their commitment to me, a first-time customer. Wow!


Comments
It has been a year since my purchase and funny youd pick today to ask for an updated review. I was just looking at the MKX-logoed hitch cover, yesterday, and marveled at how nice it still looks. It is a quality product that serves me well.

Review from a similar OEM in Hitch Covers


I love my trailer hitch, however; I was involved in a rear end collision that almost bent the hitch into. I’m glad the hitch cover was on as it and the hitch sustained mist of the rear end damage to my SUV. That hitch cover was a strong one! I’ve ordered another one and I’m sure it will be just as good as this one, but I hope I don’t have another wreck to prove that point.

I have a 2020 Chevy Silverado LTZ silver ice metallic. With advanced trailering package a Chevy bow tie light messes all the sensors in the rear of the truck. Anyways I looked for something else I found this Chevy Silverado hitch cover from you people. It is the best hitch cover I have ever seen, it is beautiful looks great on my truck or any Chevy I am very fussy it is better than anything I could buy in any automotive store I will buy more for my other chevys. PS. Make sure you lock it on receiver so no one will take that is how beautiful it is here is a picture of it

Like the fact the hitch cover is solidly made - prefer metal over plastic every time . Looks great on my explorer. Four stars because installing wasn’t that easy because of tight space between hitch pin and bumper.

  • How Is Faceplate Attached To Ford Escape Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover
    I have attached a photo of the back of the Ford Escape Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover, part # FOVHC-12. As you can see in the photo, the faceplate is held in place on the sleeve with 4 screws and it would take quite a bit of excessive force from a car wash to knock the faceplate off. This hitch cover has a chrome-plated faceplate that is attached to a stainless steel base to help resist rust and corrosion. This cover also comes with three foam gaskets that makes sure the cover fits your...
