Video Transcript for Reese Pintle Hitch - Pintle Mounting Plate - 45156 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 45156. This is the Titan pintle hook mount plate for two and a half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitches. The hitch mounted pintle hook plate is going to allow you to mount your pintle for heavy duty towing. The plates going to offer three sets of holes with a six hole design total, that way you can easily match your trailer's ride height. It's going to feature the two and a half inch by two and a half inch square, hollow steel shank. This can be used in either the drop position, which is this position here, or it can be used in the ride position, either one to best fit your particular towing application. We're going to take a measurement of the shank length, that's simply measuring from the center of the hitch pin hole to the front of the mounting plate.

We do that measurement, we're going to see that that comes to right around seven and seven-eighths of an inch. The mounting plate itself is going to give us a measurement going this direction of five inches and then going this direction it's going to give us a measurement of about six inches. The thickness of that plate is going to measure five-eighths of an inch. Now this portion right here is going to be the portion that slides into the opening of your hitch. You're going to slide it all the way in until you get your pin holes to line up with one another. Now your hitch pin and clip or hitch pin lock is going to be sold separately, but the diameter of this pin hole is going to measure five-eighths of an inch.

If you need a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock, you can find those right here at etrailer.com. This unit is going to offer a gross weight capacity of twelve thousand pounds with a maximum tow weight capacity of twelve hundred pounds. Here at the front our mounting holes are going to be separated center on center going this direction. That's going to measure three and three-eighths of an inch. Up and down they're going to be separated by one and three-quarters of an inch. The mount hole diameters are going to measure seventeen-thirty seconds of an inch.

A few more measurements to go over with you real quick, the distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank. That's going to give us a measurement of about four and three-quarters of an inch. When using this in the rise position you want to make sure you have enough clearance from the outermost part of your vehicle to the support bar right here, so we can kind of gauge that by taking a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to base of that weld. If we do that, we're going to see that that's going to give us a measurement of . It looks to be about four seven-sixteenths of an inch here at the top. Measuring to the back of that mounting plate to the center of the hitch pin hole, that's going to give us a measurement of about seven and one-eighths of an inch.

Overall length very front to very back that's going to give us a measurement that looks to be about twelve and five-eighths of an inch. That's going to do it for today's review of part number 45156. This is the Titan pintle hook mount plate for two and a half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitches.

  • What Hitch Receiver for a 2012 Range Rover Sport
    We can offer some bike transport options for your Rover Sport. If you have the HSE model we offer Curt Class III hitch # 13456 which has a 2-inch receiver opening and a beefy 600-lb tongue weight capacity, plenty for even the largest of bike racks. I have linked the hitch install instructions as well as two helpful articles on hitch installation. Please note that if you have a full-size spare it will not be able to fit back in place after hitch installation.

  • Why Doesn't Titan Pintle Hook Mounting Plate # RP45294 Fit in Ram 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    The factory 2-1/2 inch receiver on the Ram and Ford trucks have more rounded corners whereas the Titan pintle hook mounting plate, # RP45294 has corners that are more squared. As a result, they tend not to fit together unless you remove some of the powder coating on the shank of the mounting plate. Do not remove any of the metal, though, just powder coat. A better fit would be # 45156 which has more rounded corners.

  • Class III 2 Inch Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2016 Honda Pilot
    I will be happy to make some recommendations for you and your 2016 Honda Pilot. First, for a trailer hitch, a popular option is Curt hitch # C13146.

It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise...
