Video Transcript for etrailer Rubber 2" Hitch Cover Review

Hey, everybody, Ryan here at Etrailer. Today we're gonna be checking out the trailer hitch cover. So right off the bat, this is gonna work with the two inch by two inch hitches, like we have here today on our Jeep, just as an example, and there's also a smaller inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter version available. So if you've got the smaller size hitch, there will be a plug that fits that as well, but really a super simple part, and it's designed for a couple of different reasons. You know, one of 'em being to help keep dirt and junk from getting inside of the receiver tube here, help keep it in good shape, whether. You know, it's debatable how well that actually works, but in my opinion, it's definitely not gonna hurt anything as far as that goes.

So might extend the life of your hitch, especially if you use this, you know, when your hitch is new, like ours today, but more importantly, I think that this is mainly for the appearance. I think it makes it look a whole lot better and a lot more finished. So as opposed to just having that open tube there, you know, this pops in, (plastic smacking) and to me I like the looks of it, kind of gives it more of a clean appearance, and with this being made out of rubber, it can potentially kind of soften a blow too. You know, some hitches stick out past the bumper quite a bit, and if you we're to happen to kind of bump your leg or something while you're getting into your trunk or dropping your tailgate, not gonna hurt as bad. Like I said, this is made from rubber and one of the nice things about it is you don't need a pin and clip or tools or anything to use it.

You know, it's a press fit, and it's a tight fit at that. So that's all you gotta do to put it in there and pull it right out, and these seem to hold up pretty well. I can actually speak from personal experience. My father's had one of these for probably two and a half, three years now, and it hasn't dry rotted. You know, it still goes in there well and comes out just like it did when it was brand new, and he don't park in the garage either.

He lives on a country gravel road. So it's out in the sun all day getting beat up, and so it seems to hold up, at least so far. So can't really go wrong there. You know, there's a ton of different styles of hitch covers on the market, and this is probably one of the more simple ones. Probably gonna last longest in terms of it holding up, but in case you're looking for something a little bit different, you got kind of this style, which kind of doubles as a four-way flat trailer wiring holder as well.

So I just have this other cover on hand that would kind of plug in into there trailer wiring and be able to keep it stored, if you will, and the way these work is they go around your hitch share and then push in, which is pretty cool. You know, you kind of, you get that holder in there. My thought, though, with these, you know, it's nice that this can stay on there. You can plug your accessory in. You don't have to keep track of it or anything, but I don't really see that lasting too long to be quite frank with you because that part of the rubber is relatively thin. It's kind of a high wear area. I could eventually see this probably cracking and tearing and then, you know, you're kind of losing the function of that, but can't speak from personal experience. That's just my thought on it, and then if you're looking for some extra safety or a little extra lighting, you know, we have stuff like this too, which will illuminate, you know, when you're hitting your brakes and stuff. So that could go in with these. You know, a lot of 'em you're gonna need a pin and clip to keep it in place, but that push in there. You plug this part into your trailer wiring and you know, like I said, this will illuminate whenever you're applying your brakes. Other than that, at the end of the day, you know, there's really not a whole lot to it. It's gonna be a great way to help keep your hitch protected and look a little bit better whenever you're not using it.

etrailer Rubber Hitch Cover for 2" Trailer Hitches - Qty 1 - 22282

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (2359 Customer Reviews)

Black rubber hitch cover protects your hitch receiver from dirt and debris when not in use. No pins or clips needed.


Installation was fine with your directions, however, the 2017 Prius has different bumper/fender snap attachments than you showed on the video. Putting the bumper back into place took a little more attention than its removal to align everything together. Good product that fit as promised.



I use the hitch for my bikes for every ride. Solid equipment that works as intended.


Works just fine on my 2" Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver, item #306-X7235I would highly recommend buying this item also.



This produce is working out great, it does the job. It covers my 2 hitch on my Honda Civic 2012.


I haven't had this part long enough to review the part, but the service was excellent, on what I thought were missing parts in my trailer hitch was actually my fault. The screws were inside of the receiver like they said but my assistant did not look in the plastic wrapping close enough. Even though the service at etrailers knew that the correct parts were most likely included they didn't argue they quickly sent new bolts for the installation. My bad!!


Looks good. Fits in the receiver nice and snug so it shouldn’t fall out while driving. I am pleased with this purchase.



After one year, primarily using my hitch for a bike carrier at least once a week, this cover still fits nice and snug and looks good.


I ordered on Wednesday PM and received my new hitch, bike rack, and accessories Friday @ 5:00 PM. Everything looks great and I will do the install in 2 days. You guys are GREAT!!!!!

Perfect...Just perfect


Rugged enough to transport our heavy e-bikes. Love the locking feature for a no worry adventure. And love the simple design that allows dirt to fall thru rather than get caught up on platforms or wheel cradles like other designs. I’d highly recommend this rack.


This is my second etrailer hitch (first one is on my 2010 Ford Escape). This hitch fits perfectly on my 2023 RAV4 hybrid. The holes lined up exactly with the frame holes. No bad words were needed :) The install video was very helpful. Like some other reviewers, I did not need to lower the exhaust. I'm using it to carry a hitch hauler / basket and bike rack.

The hitch arrived in perfect condition, although the box was extremely damaged in shipping. Fortunately the bolt package was securely taped to the hitch frame so it did not fall out of the holes in the box.


QUALITY PRODUCTS and Quality Company that recognizes Military Veterans with a generous discount!


This hitch cover works great. After a year, it is showing no signs of deterioration or deformities.


Great website to shop from. I’ve bought several things from and have been very pleased with the quality as well as the after sales service provided. I picked up an electrical harness for my fathers vehicle last year and it was so simple and easy to install. It still works perfectly and was happy to buy the parts needed for my own vehicles trailer hitch and wiring. I bought a nifty little trailer wire tester that plugs into the vehicle side to assure that all is as should be before hitting the road. Very pleased and happy to recommend to anyone in need of anything trailer related.


Delivery time great, missing a 30 amp fuse not acceptable. Joanne in customer service exceptional, because she gave me her direct call back number. I used that call back to discuss the missing fuse. The missing part arrived in 3 business days.


First let me mention the service. The Hitch was super fast to arrive and the service was incredible. Second, the hitch itself is super quality couldn't be happier.


Package came poorly protected in box and was damaged. Hitch was protruding out of box and the powder coating was damaged.


Fits my e-trailer hitch perfectly


Fits great into 2" receiver, nice a snu g.


Friendly and knowledgeable sales staff. I received my hitch in just a few days in good order. The box had a few holes due to shipping but that is expected. All parts were packaged securely and everything was there. Great quality product very sturdy with solid welds.


Easy way to make the hitch look more finished whenever my bike rack is off.


Very happy with this hitch. Arrived in perfect condition. I took it to Uhaul to get it installed, and they were also happy with it. They said it was a perfect fit for my Sportage, and they installed it in double quick time, apparently. I use the hitch to carry my 2-bike rack and I've never had a problem. Very sturdy.


This cover keeps the receiver socket clean and makes the appearance neater. My receiver occasionally hits my driveway and this cover has not been knocked out yet. Good product.


It fits nicely in the hitch receiver.


Great product and fast delivery! Fits like a glove to my new 2024 Subaru Crosstrek. To use with a KUAT bike rack.


After using for a year, the hitch cover still remains in place, is easy to install and remove, and still keeps the receiver clean.


Package arrived in a timely fashion and the instructions were very easy.


Everything was perfect. All items shipped and arrived when stated. The video for installation was perfect.
Thank you.


Perfect fit for our 2023 Honda Pilot. Hitch arrived in 2 days in perfect condition. Easy install. This is our third etrailer hitch.

  • Can a Trailer Axle be Overloaded Overnight When Camping with a Rooftop Tent
    The most important thing to note about trailer weights is that you are always limited by your least rated component (weakest link type of thing). So if your axle is rated for 2,000 lbs but the trailer itself is only rated for 1,800 lbs then you would be limited to the 1.8K rating. The GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) of a trailer can be a little higher than the axle rating though because the tow vehicle or trailer jack will be helping to support some of the tongue weight.

  • Choosing a Spare Tire Cover to Fit Your Tire
    From the three different tire numbers you sent me, it looks like you have a 26.1" spare tire. You can also do the math to find out what spare tire size cover you need. Take the first number and multiply by 0.0394 (205 x 0.0394 = 8.077). Then multiply the result by 0.75 (8.865 x 0.75 = 6.058). Next, multiply by 2 (6.058 x 2 = 12.12). And last, add the wheel diameter, in this case 14 (12.12 + 14 = 26.12). That 26.12 is the tire diameter/height, give or take a fraction of an inch. I linked...

  • Aligning a Trailer Axle with the Center Bolt on a Spring
    The axle is self-aligned by the spring center bolt so there's no need to slide the axle. Axle manufacturers weld the spring seat in a specific location to align perfectly with the center bolt/nut on the leaf spring. Once all parts are assembled and installed this automatically aligns the axle. If your axle is out of alignment there is a possibility the axle is bent or one or more of the axle suspension components is damaged and needs to be replaced. Uneven tire wear (one being more worn...

  • How to Measure For Replacement Axle and Axle Placement
    To measure an axle to replace it you can simply measure from the hub face to hub face and then from the spring mount centers. I have attached a diagram for your reference. The diagram gives a measurement example. The other thing to keep in mind is the axle capacity, the new axle needs to be the same capacity as your existing one or higher. If you are asking how to measure for axle placement then I have attached a very helpful diagram and help article for you to check out.

  • Solutions for Reducing Bounce on Small Older Trailer
    There are a few things that might be causing the bounce and movement you are experiencing with your smaller trailer. I first recommend making sure that the trailer is riding level. If the trailer isn't level when coupled with your tow vehicle, this will result in an unstable ride that can lead to the movement you are having.

They have to be snug but the spring still needs to be able to move. I have included a link to our help article on double-eye trailer leaf springs for you as well.

  • How To Determine The Correct Replacement Brakes For Your RV/Boat Trailer
    Hi Isaac, When replacing trailer brakes there's a few things to check to figure out the correct replacement. The first thing I start with usually is the axle capacity. If you can find the axle tag sticker on the axle tube we can use the information on it to determine the capacity. If the axle tag is gone then you can also just measure the hub/drum assembly like I have pictured below. We can then take those measurements to find the correct brake assemblies to fit the hub/drums.

    Hey Jeremy, Typically with boat trailers the manufacturer will install hydraulic surge brakes because you don't have to worry about the water damaging wires like you would with electric brakes. That being said, if you use a heat shrink butt connector # DW05745-10 you'll be able to protect your electrical connections and shouldn't have a problem. To add brakes you'll need to check the axle/spindle to see if you have a brake mounting flange. If you don't then you'll have to buy new axles...
