Speaker 1: Today you're going to be getting a look at the rubber hitch cover from etrailer.com. It's available for two inch hitches, part number 22282. It's also available for inch and a quarter hitches, part number 22281.If you've got several hundred dollars invested in a trailer hitch, you may want to consider spending a few more dollars to protect it. An empty receiver tube could invite water, road grime, or other environmental hazards into the opening creating rust and corrosion. This can even spread to your bull mount. The hitch cover serves a dual purpose, preventing rust and corrosion while adding to the overall appearance of a hitch.The etrailer.com hitch cover is black in appearance so it's going to blend in with your hitch.

Compared to other hitch covers, it doesn't require a pin and clip. It simply just pressure fits in place.The wide rubber face is also going to protect the collar of your hitch. Because the whole thing is rubber, it's going to be more durable than plastic hitch covers. Now you've had a look at the rubber hitch cover from etrailer.com.

I really did like this little hitch cover. The stupid sods at the Subaru dealership lost the bloody thing while they were servicing the car. They 'promised' to replace it. That was about six months ago. I'll probably buy another e-trailer rubber hitch cover, but it is unlikely that I'll buy another Subaru. 563640

Plugs right in to the trailer reciever. I bought this on the website recommendation as I suppose it will keep water out and prevent rust. Glad I did. 427110

Nice plug but lost it first week - that’s why 3 stars instead of 4 - may have come out at the car wash because it just slides in and isn’t really tight - 575988

This hitch cover does it's job of covering the receiver opening (which naturally gets rusty looking with use) and, being flat black, making the hitch a little less obvious in its appearance. The only down side is it can be accidentally lost if you scrape it pulling out of a driveway or off a steep slope. But at $.$$ you can always buy another one. 336554

We had a little mishap with this delivery but as soon as I contacted Michelle S she rectified everything in a very quick and professional manner. Unfortunately I could not install this myself it was too difficult for me to get underneath my car so I had my local mechanic do it. He said it was easy to install and it fit well without any additional drilling. Now I have to purchase another anti wobble pin for my bike rack so I can attach it to the hitch. In the meantime I place the hitch cap over the hole and it looks very good. Thank you etrailer for all your support! 401755

I went all over my local area to find this simple part and no one had it, most saying they had no idea what I was talking about. I did finally find a source that wanted $12.95 for it. Going on line, I found etrailer.com and spoke with Customer Service Rep. Jennifer and in 5 minutes, the part was ordered and delivered for less than half the previous sources cost. I know who I'm contacting first for future trailer part needs. Jennifer even gave me her direct line incase of any problems. That is customer service! 291800

The advice you gave me at the time of purchase was right on the money! A year later, all is well. Thank you for your concern.

Jameson and Donna P. were very helpful with my order. An item was out of stock and Donna quickly noticed this and ordered it directly from the manufacturer and updated my delivery date and my shipping address. Everything arrived on time and that was appreciated. Jameson answered my initial concerns and explained in detail what I would need to complete the job. Thanks to both and etrailer. I never realized there was so much to learn about towing a trailer, but they made it easy to learn. 403173

Great price, cheap enough that I bought four because these things occasionally disappear. It fits well and does what it's supposed to do, and now I have spares. Inexpensive and fast-enough shipping to my mailbox via USPS. I bought a hitch from etrailer a decade ago without issues. Very thorough web presence. Carry on. 434125


Comments

The fit is a bit loose they fall out, or get blown out or washed out, and get lost without a retaining spring. I installed a long stretchy spring that I could hook to the front end of the tube no losses thereafter.

My order was shipped (free shipping) the day after the order was placed. It was received on time and complete. I installed my hitch myself in less than 30 minutes and mounted my existing rack. I could not be more satisfied with the experience with etrailer and their overall service. Etrailer sets a new standard for customer service. I will gladly recommend them to my friends. 284557

The product is great but I have purchased three of the trailer hitch covers because they have all fell off. I first thought they were coming off because our driveway is on a slant and the hitch is rubbing on the ground but I do not see them on the ground so I don't know what happens to them. 620403

Got this insert for my new car which had a 2 inch hitch. The insert and the hitch receiver lock have worked great for my bike rack which requires a 1 1/4 inch receiver. The insert and the lock came fast and I was able to use them right away for transporting bikes. 619235

  • Parts Needed to Install the EcoHitch Part # 306-X7267 on a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The only thing you will need to install the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7267 on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon is basic tools like sockets and wrenches. The rest of the parts needed for installation like the hardware, is included with the hitch. I do however recommend using the hitch cover part # 22281 while the hitch is not being used as this will prevent rust from forming inside the receiver tube opening.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2017 Toyota Prius Prime
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24966 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Toyota Prius Prime and will work well for you. The Draw-Tite Sportframe is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. In order to keep dirt and debris from getting inside the receiver tube opening, I recommend using the Rubber Hitch Cover part # 22281 while not in use. If you can tell me what you will be using the trailer hitch for I would be glad to offer some additional recommendations...

  • Should a Locking Hitch Pin be Purchased to Help Keep a Hitch Cover from Being Stolen
  • A trailer hitch cover like the Rubber Hitch Cover # 22281 is not one that can be locked, but since it is a common piece it really isn't in too much danger of being stolen. However, if you you are looking at a hitch cover that is a little more unique, like the part # HTCC11805, then I do recommend going with a locking hitch pin like part # 7683 as opposed to a typical pin and clip like part # PC3. This will help to deter theft of your cover. Please note that the lock and clip/pin numbers...

The only other thing I recommend is protecting your investments with the Locking Anti-Rattle, Threaded Hitch Pin for Swagman Hitch Racks # S64029 which will lock the rack to your hitch.

  • What is the Diameter of the Crosstube on the Draw-Tite Hitch for a 2018 Dodge Journey
  • The inner diameter of the crosstube on the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76225 is 1-1/2". Therefore, a trailer hitch cover designed for a 2" receiver tube opening like the Rubber Hitch Cover part # 22282 will not work for this application. With that being said I am certain you could find something to work for this application with just a bit of modifications. I have attached a sample install video for you as well.

  • Why is a Support Strap Required for Class I and II Curt Trailer Hitch Receivers
  • You are correct that the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11185 for your 2000 Chrysler Sebring will require the use of a stabilizer strap like the Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap part # 18050 for all non-towing application. In fact, all Class I and Class II trailer hitch receivers made by Curt require the use of this strap in accordance with their warranty policy. It is not so much as the hitch is made poorly as it is just being a precautionary device that reduces movement of hitch...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And Cargo Carrier For 2016 Ford Focus

This trailer hitch receiver is rated for a 200 lb tongue weight and a 2000 lb towing weight. This is a very well made hitch that will allow you to carry a bike rack or cargo carrier. Your owners manual does not give weight restrictions and states you are never to tow with this vehicle, so you will be limited to accessories. The 17x46 Curt Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4" and 2"...

  • Recommendation for Installing 2 Inch Hitch Cover on 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • I recommend first verifying the receiver size on your vehicle, as a 1-1/2 inch hitch is very uncommon. We do not have any adapters available for this sized hitch receiver. If you actually have a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver, you will just need to use an adapter like the Brophy # HTAD. This adapter will slide into your existing hitch receiver and provide a 2 inch receiver opening that you can use with your cover. We do also have a large selection of hitch covers that fit directly with...

The Curt 2" Hitch Ball # A-82 has the same shank diameter as what the ball mount does so they will work well together.

The shank is removable, it is secured by the standard pin and clip. Keep in mind that this is a Class I 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver that has a max Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) of 1,500 lbs and a max Tongue Weight (TW) of 150 lbs.

If you are going to be using a bike rack, like the Thule Roadway # TH912XTR, keep in mind that your max Tongue Weight is 200 lbs and that you will be limited to carrying only 2 bikes. If you will be using the hitch for anything but towing, Curt recommends using the Support Strap # 18050, otherwise your warranty from Curt will be voided.
