Expert Answers about Heininger Holdings

  • Does Advantage SportsRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar Have a Spring Return or Way to Stay Tight
  • Advantage SportsRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HE6009 does not have a return spring or way to tighten it down. It doesn't really need either because once it is installed it cannot open more or contract. The best adapter bar is # 64005. I recommend it all the time because of its lower price and it is the easiest one of all the adpater bars to use. It does have a spring return. I have linked a video review of the adapter bar for you.

  • How Far Does the HitchMate TruckStep XL Stick Out Past Hitch
  • When the HitchMate TruckStep XL part # HE4037 is extended all the way out and folded down it measures 26 inches. So it would stick out 6 inches past your tailgate.

  • Locking Hitch Pin for Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack
  • There is a solution for you, but the HitchMate Threaded Lock # HE6001 will not work with your Kuat Transfer 2 # TS02G. You'd want the Cable Locks and Hitch Lock for Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack # PTSCLK12, which includes a hitch lock that attaches to your existing threaded hitch pin. The kit also includes a pair of cable locks to secure your bikes. I've added a link to a video review of this lock set for you to check out as well.

  • Solution for Threaded Hitch Pin that Won't Thread into Bike Rack
  • The anti-rattle device part # HE6001 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your Advantage SportsRack glideAWAY Bike Rack. Most likely what is happening is that the threads of your bike rack are dirty or rusty and need to be cleaned out so that the bolt will thread into it. I attached a help article that details how to do this in a similar situation for you to check out. If the rack's original anti-rattle bolt still will thread into the rack then you will want to compare...

  • Does the PortablePet HE3052 fit on 2011 Honda Element?
  • I went out and measured the PortablePET Twistep, part # HE3052. I've included a diagram that details the measurements from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back plate of the swivel, which will always be the closest part. The closer of the two holes is 4-1/4 inches away and the further back is 5-3/4 inches. From our test videos, the distance should be right around 3 inches, meaning that the step should work, and I recommend using the rear pin hole for better positioning in relation...

  • Recommended Bed Step For 2017 Ford F-350
  • For your bed step, I recommend the HitchMate TruckStep Extendable, Hitch Mounted Step for 2" Hitches - 9" x 6" - 500 lbs # HE4045. This mounts into your trailer hitch receiver and gives you an adjustable step to use when the tail gate is open or closed. There is a slightly larger version # HE4037. An option for your tailgate is the Convert-A-Ball Step Gate - Universal Truck Tailgate Step - 2 Steps - Passenger's Side # CAB-SG-2R. This gives you an easy to use handle with steps for...

  • Tie-Down Anchor Points for 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Factory Roof Rails
  • I may have a solution for you to tie-down the Advantage Cargo Bag # HE3021 you were looking at, but you will need to measure the channel dimensions of the roof rack on your 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee to confirm fit. The Eyebolts for Rhino-Rack Aero/Sportz Crossbars # S604 have a square piece that installs in the channel that measures 13/16" by 13/16". This fits most roof rack channels so there is a great chance it will work well for you. I have linked both the above mentioned products...

  • Will HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Fit a Thule T2 Bike Rack
  • Thule uses a propriety bolt pattern on their products. So the Hitchmate threaded trailer hitch receiver lock # HE6001 will not be compatible with the Thule T2 # TH916XTR-918XTR. However we do offer a Thule Snug Tite hitch lock and anti-rattle device that may work for you. The Thule Snug Tite hitch lock and anti-rattle device part # THSTL2 is a replacement lock system that is compatible with your 2 inch receiver hitch. I have included a video demonstrating the assembly of this Thule...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier Saddle That Will Fit an Extend a Truck Hitch Mount Extender
  • The kayak carrier saddle I recommend is the Heininger Advantage # HE3030. The cushions will wrap around your extender such as # DTA944 to be able to mount and protect your kayak. I went to our warehouse to get the cushions and provide you a video. They will be a little snug but the great thing is the adhesive strip and tie down strap will secure the cushion to your truck bed extender.

  • Will the HitchMate Adjustable Hitch Step Part HE4045 Clear Tailgate of Chevy 2500 HD
  • I went out to our warehouse, and pulled one of the HitchMate Hitch Steps, part # HE4045 off the shelf. When fully extended, the hitch step is 23-1/2 inches long, when measured rearward from the face of the hitch receiver. You should find that this hitch step will provide plenty of clearance when your tailgate is down.

  • Locking Hitch Pin Recommendation for the Thule Vertex Bike Rack
  • I do have a threaded, locking hitch pin for your Thule Vertex bike rack, but the Heininger Threaded Hitch Pin, # HE6033, will not work with the Vertex bike rack because the threaded portion of the Heininger hitch pin is too large to fit in the hitch pin hole of the Vertex bike rack. I pulled the Heininger hitch pin from my warehouse to test it with the Vertex bike rack and verified that they were not compatible. Instead, you will want the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock, # THSTL2. This hitch...

  • Step Recommendation for Front of Boat Trailer to Make Climbing in Boat Easier
  • We have the Hitchmate Boat Trailer Step part # HE4036 which is designed to attach to the frame of a boat trailer in front of the bow of the boat so that you can climb up and into the boat if needed. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • 2018 F350 6.5 Bed Cargo Stabilizer
  • The HitchMate Cargo Stabilizier, part # HE4016-4017, will fit trucks with bed widths of 59 to 73 inches. Looking at your 2018 Ford F-350, this should be a fit. I do recommend measuing your bed width prior to purchasing, just to be sure. I've included a video of this part in action so you can get a better idea of its features.

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for Swagman XC Bike Rack
  • The only anti-rattle hitch lock we offer that will fit your Swagman XC # S64650 is the one specifically designed for it by Swagman like the part # S64029. The Heininger part # HE6033 hasn't been tested on your bike rack and just by looking at the threads I can tell it would be too wide to fit.

  • Load Stabilizing Bar Recommendation to Brace Cargo in Trailer
  • Based on what you described it sounds like you are looking for a cargo stabilizer bar like the HitchMate Cargo Bar part # HE4016-4017. This has an adjustable length of 59" - 73". This does not require a track to install though. This uses friction to hold itself to the wall it is installed on. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Platform for Boat Trailer Tongue
  • We have a few options for you to consider in a platform for your boat trailer tongue. We don't carry a specific walk board, but we do have some similar items like the following: HitchMate Boat Trailer Step - 5" Wide x 9" Long - 400 lbs # HE4036 MaxxTow Trailer Step for up to 3" x 5" Frame - 9" Long x 5" Wide - Steel # MT70089 CE Smith Galvanized Steel Step for 2" Trailer Frame - 15-1/4" Long x 3" Wide # CE26212G-15284GA I've attached some videos to assist.

  • Will the HitchMate Extendable TruckStep # HE4045 Clear Spare of 2005 Dodge Ram 2500
  • I spoke with my contact at Heininger on the HitchMate Extendable TruckStep, part # HE4045, and he said they have not had a problem with it hitting a spare tire on short bed or long bed truck like your 2005 Dodge Ram 2500. He did mention to take a measurement on your truck to determine if it will clear your spare tire. With the truck step inserted into a trailer hitch the support arm will sit 1-5/8 inches below the hitch receiver opening and the support arm will extend under the...

  • Cargo Net Recommendation for a 5 by 8 Cargo Trailer

  • Hitch Pin Lock for an XPort 2 Bike Rack
  • I have a solution for you, however part # SR0901 is designed to fit the threading of a SportRack bike rack, and likely won't work with your XPort 2. We've found in the past that later versions of the XPort, the Q-Slot, work well with Saris' hitch pin locking set, part # SA3022. You can get a cable lock add on for this set as part # SA984 if you'd like to fully upgrade your rack's security. This isn't a guaranteed fit, however we've had reports that it may work.

  • Will HitchMate Extendable TruckStep # HE4045 Interfere With Spare Tire on 2012 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • I spoke with my contact at Heininger on the HitchMate Extendable TruckStep, part # HE4045, and he said they have not had a problem with it hitting a spare tire on short bed or long bed, but it is always possible if something might be changed on the vehicle. He did mention to take a measurement on your 2012 Ford F-250 to determine if it will clear your spare tire. With the truck step inserted into a trailer hitch the support arm will sit 1-5/8 inches below the hitch receiver opening...

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for MaxxTow Tri-Ball Mount # MT70270
  • For a hitch lock for use with the MaxxTow ball mount # MT70270 the best solution is a hitch lock like the part # 5201 which will fit and work well. The part # HE6001 is designed for racks with threaded pin holes which the ball mount does not have.

  • Trailer Step Options for a Boat Trailer
  • Currently the only other style of trailer step we offer aside from the # HE4036 that you referenced would be trailer fender steps like part # CE19011 for the left front/right rear or the part # CE19012 for the right front/left rear.

  • Hitch Lock for Hollywood Bike Rack That Fits 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • For a hitch lock that will work with your Hollywood bike rack that fits in a 1-1/4" hitch you need the Hollywood Racks 1-1/4" Hitch Lock and 8' Cable Lock for Bike Racks # HRLHPC1 which includes a cable lock for security. This will work for you unless you have a threaded hitch lock, which, based on your photo showing the hitch lock's curved end, does not look like you have.

  • Recommended Cargo Stabilizer Bar for 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • For your 2017 Honda Ridgeline, I recommend the HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar for Compact Pickup Trucks # HE4015. This heavy-duty cargo bar has an adjustable length of 50 inches to 65 inches, so it will work very well for the truck bed on your Honda Ridgeline. The bar features a nice, ratcheting handle to allow for easy use and the large, sturdy rubber feet will tightly grip the truck walls.

  • Distance from Weld to First Pin Hole on Advantage SportsRack Hitch Extender # HE6000

  • Hitch Extender for Use With a Pop-Up Trailer With a 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • Since it sounds like you don't need too much of an extension I recommend that you go with the shortest extension that we currently offer which is 11 inches long # HE6000. There is already a lot of play at the rear of a trailer due to the axle location. Adding an extender to the mix will only increase the amount of play that you will experience, so you will need to make sure that whatever you have on that rack can take a beating. You will also want to make sure that whatever accessory that...

  • How Far Past F-150 Open Tailgate Does HitchMate TruckStep, Part # HE4045, Reach When Extended
  • The forward edge of the step platform on the HitchMate Extendable TruckStep for 2-inch Hitches, part # HE4045, will extend 23-1/2 inches beyond the end of the hitch receiver. You can determine exactly where the 9-inch-wide x 6-inch-deep step will be relative to the edge of your open tailgate by measuring 23-1/2 inches back from your hitch receiver. Since this is the point where the front edge of the step will be, the rear edge of the step will reach back an additional 6 inches behind...
