  • Long Adjustable Ball Mount For 11,000 lb Trailer
  • So there isn't a 6 inch hitch extender for a 2 inch hitch that has an 11,000 lb capacity and 1,200 lb tongue weight capacity, and hitch extenders also reduce the capacity of your hitch by 50 percent, so they are generally just used for accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers. That means the best option we can offer is a ball mount with an extended reach, which may work for you depending on the distance you need. The longest ball mount that has the capacity you need is from BulletProof...

  • Why Do Trailer Hitch Pins Not Have Weight Capacities
  • The reason most hitch pins don't come with weight ratings is because they don't bear the full weight of the accessory. If you are towing a trailer for example then you would be using a ball mount and the tongue weight from the trailer would then pin the ball mount to the inside of the trailer hitch which takes the stress off the hitch pin. That said, the shear strength of any given hitch pin would far exceed the rating of the trailer in likely every scenario which when combined with the...

  • Best Lock For Cargo Carrier Security
  • If you have our cargo carrier # e98874 then use the threaded hitch pin lock # e99047. If you have another cargo carrier, get this non threaded locking hitch pin # e98881. I like these better because they are pick proof and better than cable locks in my opinion. Cable locks can be cut with high end cutters but these locks will need a grinder of sorts and won't be as discrete when cutting through.

  • Can I Fit a Padlock On the Latch of the Pivot Lock Hitch Pin?

  • Does Hitch Lock # e98882 Have Weight Capacity
  • Hitch pins and hitch pin locks like the part # e98882 that you referenced don't actually bear any weight when used with a ball mount so they don't have weight capacities. The downward force of the tongue weight of the trailer is so great that the ball mount is pinned into the hitch so hard that none of the weight is put on the hitch pin.

  • The Curt Hitch Lock part # C23517 will work just fine for a 10,000 lb trailer however, I do not have a specific tongue weight nor gross trailer weight rating because this is just not something the manufacturer test for. The reason for this is because it is not needed. The 1/2" diameter pin or 5/8" when using the sleeve will have a shear strength rating that far exceeds what you will be able to pull with the vehicle. Nearly all trailer hitch pins do not include a specific weight capacity.
