Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Adapter Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Brophy Hitch Adapter, 1 1/4 to 2 inch trailer hitch receiver with a 5 inch rise, part number HT5R. The Brophy Hitch Adapter is going to allow you to convert your Class I and II 1 1/4 inch receiver to your 2 inch receiver, allowing you to use any 2 inch accessory. It offers a 5 inch rise, giving us more ground clearance here at the rear of the vehicle for our accessories. We're using a cargo carrier with our adapter here today, but it's also going to work great for your bike racks or any other 2 inch accessories. Now please keep in mind when using this adapter, it does cut your tongue weight capacity in half. It is not recommended for towing use, so no ball mounts. This is a much more economical solution than having two bike racks or two cargo carriers for multiple vehicles and it's definitely cheaper than purchasing a different hitch.

In addition to the rise, it gives us a 7 inch extension. It's also made out of a sturdy steel construction with a black powder coat finish, so it's going to stand up to the elements. It has a 300 pound weight capacity. It's an extraordinarily easy installation. We've got our adapter plugged into our 1 1/4 inch receiver and our accessory plugged into our adapter. The pin and clips are sold separately from the hitch adapter, so you'll need to pick some up here at etrailer.com.

Here at the adapter end, we've got a PC3, this is going to be our 5/8th pin and clip. Here at the hitch end, we've got a PC2, that's going to be our 1/2 inch pin and clip. That's going to complete our look at the Brophy Hitch Adapter, 1 1/4 to 2 inch trailer hitch receiver with a 5 inch rise, part number HT5R.

I was hunting the web for a trailer hitch that would work with my Ford Fiesta and my handicap rack that wouldn't scrap the road or driveways and intersection. I came across the Hitch Adapter from e-trailer.com. So I ordered the product. Was so excited when the hitch arrived and took it to my welding shop to have custom adjustment for my bumper. For the first time since April 1, 2018 when my handicap rack arrived it didn't drag the pavement. I am so excited and would love to have all of you know how wonderful the service from this company as the hitch even arrived a day early. WTG guy on your service........ 524733

This well-made adapter is ideal for the 2016 Mazda Miata because it provides significant clearance for Curt Manufacturing's folding aluminum cargo carrier and remains 1 1/4" away from the rear license plate. I've already used this rig several times in several days (lawnmower, luggage, packages to be shipped) and it works great. Along with this fantastic product is fantastic service from the eTrailer.com team. Friendly, helpful, responsive. I couldn't ask for anything more, and recommend both this product and its distributor highly. 270350

Because of low ground clearance I bought this high 5" high rise for my carrier that I bought from you all and it worked great. I loved the ability to walk between the carrier and trunk. The high rise is easy to install. We had absolutely no issues on our 3000 mile round trip journey. The hitch, high rise and carrier were all purchased from you. 309669

Finally! I could not use the hitch on my Kia as it is too low to the ground. Which I did not realize until it was put on by U haul. I kept looking and looking for a hitch adapter with a rise and here it is. It needs to be an inch longer though (at the bottom) because of the bumper. But that is fixable. I'll have the garage shave a bit out of the bumper so I can get the holes lined up. They don't line up by just an 8th of an inch. Then I can use a carrier box without it scraping on the roads. 176002

I purchased this item to go with a hitch I installed on my Nissan Sentra,the hitch fits the car however in order to use this item with it I do need to extend the receiver out a few inches more because this part will hit the bumper and the holes will not line up to insert the pin to attach it. Also be aware it does not come with any pins for install. 578319

08' Honda CrV w/5" Brophy Hitch Riser Awesome product with ultra fast int'l shipping to Canada next spor from etrailer. I read reviews, watched videos and studied the 360 degree measurements and dimensions as the tolerance on my CRV was tight. Prepared to grind or shave down the unit to clear my bumper I was astonished to fit it on and have 'just enough clearance'. I have a Class 1 hitch by Curt which is recessed more deeply than other brands. 488874

This works GREAT when we use our Segway PT Double Carrier on the back of our Class C RV. This VERY STURDY hitch height adapter allows us to deal with the extra receiver height on the RV and get the hitch tube down to a normal level. We send all of our Segway PT Carrier customers to etrailer.com to purchase hitch height adapters for their rigs when hitch height is a problem or, for hitches when they don't yet have a hitch on their vehicle. The folks at etrailer.com are just like family when speaking with them on the phone. 340941

A little disappointed when I first saw it. The pieces were welded together a little crooked. When viewed from the side the upper and lower sections were not parallel. When viewed from above the top section veers to the right. I chose this product because of the design. The lower section sticks out from the car (2016 Corolla) less than other adapters so there's less chance of scraping driving through driveways. I would of gave it 5 stars if it was welded straight. 552806

I received my trailer hitch adapter today on time as promised. I tried it out on both cars ( 2009 hyundai elantra and 2013 hyundai sonota . It works well by clearing the bumpers and raising the hitch 4 or 5 inches that i was trying to accomplish. I use the hitch for a bike rack and it was too low to the ground.My hitch is a 1-1/4 that the HT5R converts to a 2 inch but my bike rack also had an adapter to 2 inch, so it works perfect. I had talked to customer service prior to buying and they steered me in the correct direction and i am pleased to solve this problem. 276549


Comments

The hitch raiser-upper is doing very well and has made a couple trips to Florida on one car and the other a bunch of trips to bike trails and our get away cabin. There are no problems but id like to see a solution to the receiver being tighter fit when slid into with the adapter. I know it has to go in easily but was thinking of putting some steel shims in to tighten it. It has not been a problem but i thought it would be good to cut down any play or sway while on the road . Thx for the follow up

I bought this adapter so that I could mount a bike rack on the back of my 2012 Honda Civic. The adapter got the bikes high enough so that they wouldn't hit the pavement when backing out of my driveway and transitioning to the street. The product is definitely strong and well made. It was put to the test with a very heavy steel thule bike rack that was definitely heavier than all 4 of the bikes that were mounted on it. The fit was precise so it didn't hit my rear bumper as well. 725317

Works ok. The dimensions of the receiver (female) are a bit large. So the bike rack I purchased rattles & sways to-and-fro when mounted. I attempted to place some wood shims in the adapter to minimize this occurrence, but was unsuccessful. 691210


Comments

To help prevent sway and rattle of your bike rack in the 2 inch hitch receiver, an anti-rattle device like the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061

is a great solution.

The hitch adapter looks like a well-made product. But when I installed it into the 1 1/4” hitch it fits really loose and the 2 inch hitch adapter part slightly touches the bumper. I put two strips of clear vinyl wrap to protect the bumper. Good enough I guess. Not too many choices out there for an adapter. 589775

The hitch adapters have held up well, and I use them on every hitch I own, especially for the ATV’s. They keep everything steady, especially on the ATV that has a 1.25 inch receiver. They also serve as theft deterrents.

Do you have a question about this Hitch Adapter?


  • Choosing Between 1-1/4-Inch Class II & 2-Inch Class III Trailer Hitch for 2017 Honda CR-V
  • In general there are more products made for the 2-inch Class III hitch type than for the 1-1/4-inch Class II. Some bike racks and other hitch-mount accessories such as cargo carriers can work with both hitch sizes but many are intended for one or the other. Adapters are not a great idea since they change the geometry of the overall hitch/rack system; and this is why all hitch adapters will cost you half of your hitch capacity.

This is a Class I trailer hitch that will provide a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. I have included the installation details that you can look over. Then for a hitch adapter that will expand the receiver opening to 2 inches, I recommend the Brophy Hitch Adapter # HT5R.

  • The MaxxTow Aluminum 2-Inch Hitch Cargo Carrier # MT70108 could be used with a 1-1/4-inch to 2-inch hitch adapter like Brophy # HTAD or # HT5R but use of such adapters will cause you to lose half of your hitch's capacity. This loss comes from the actual load being moved further away from the hitch tube, which increase leverage on the hitch. The 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches made for your 2018 Prius Prime, Draw-Tite # 24966 and Curt # C11473, have a 200-lb tongue weight (TW) rating which...

  • Difference Between Hitch Adapters Brophy part # HT5R and MaxxTow part # MT70355
  • The biggest advantage the Brophy part # HT5R has is that it will fit in a Class I hitch which is most of the 1-1/4 inch hitches available. The MaxxTow part # MT70355 only fits Class II hitches so it's application is a bit more limited.

That said, when we test fit the Curt hitch on a 2012 IS 350, which is the same generation as your 2007, it measured 5-1/2" from the hitch pin hole to your bumper, and the Brophy adapter extends 7" which means it...

And this particular product also provides 5-inches of height rise to improve ground clearance.

You are correct that an adapter will reduce the weight rating of the trailer hitch by 50% but the good news is that it won't reduce the weight rating of your vehicle at all (which is 100 lbs for tongue weight found in the owner's manual).

You will limit the 200 lb tongue weight capacity of your hitch to 100 lbs because the adapter will reduce the hitch's tongue weight by 50%.

  • Looking for an Adapter to Fit 1-1/4 Hitch With a Rise and 1-1/4 Inch Receiver
  • We do have adapters that will fit your 1-1/4 hitch on your vehicle, however, the receiving side is 2 inches, such as the Brophy Hitch Adapter with 5 Inch Rise # HT5R. The issue with using an adapter is that it cuts your tongue weight in half. What I believe you want is a 1-1/4 adapter for your vehicle hitch that has an unknown rise that extends out and will hold your cargo that also has 1-1/4 inch receiver. If you happen to be looking for a cargo carrier with a rise, check out Curt...

  • Adding Height to a Bike Rack for Better Ground Clearance
  • I have a solution that will allow you to raise the height of the whole bike rack for better ground clearance when you have bikes loaded. If your trailer hitch has a 1-1/4 inch receiver you can use adapter # HT5R. If it has a 2 inch receiver you can use # MT70070. However, the use of either adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. So if the tongue weight capacity of the hitch started at 200 pounds the use of adapter # HT5R would reduce that down...

  • Can Two Hitch Extenders Be Used Together
  • The thing about hitch extenders is that with each one you use you end up cutting the hitch's capacity in half. Since you would be using two of them you would end up cutting the capacity by 75 percent. When you combine that with the fact that the # HT5R specifically states that you shouldn't use it with any other hitch extenders I can not recommend you use this setup. If you can get by with just using the # HT5R or just the # hes6 and would still have the needed capacity after being...

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch for 2009 Honda Accord to Allow Use of 2-inch Hitch Bike Rack
  • The size and class of hitch available for your 2009 Honda Accord is a 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch such as Curt # C11085 and Draw-Tite # 24899. No 2-inch hitches are made for your car because its frame is not strong enough for the weight ratings of a 2-inch Class III hitch. As you noted, there are adapters like the Brophy # HTAD and # HT5R that fit your 1-1/4-inch hitch and provide a 2-inch receiver opening for the 2-inch accessory. These are both about 7-inches long, a good bit shorter...

  • Trailer Hitch Riser for a Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Honda Accord Sedan
  • The best option that I can offer that is also compatible with the Class I trailer hitch on your 2016 Honda Accord is the Brophy adapter # HT5R. It will provide an additional 5 inches of rise. It fits the 1-1/4 hitch you have but the upper receiver is for 2 inch accessories. Please note that the use of this adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. That means that the weight of the Cart Caddie, loaded and ready to go, cannot exceed 100 pounds.

  • 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch Hitch Adapter Recommendation for Curt Hitch # C11363
  • The Curt hitch part # C11363 is designed for lighter duty vehicles like your 2013 Fiat 500 which is why it has the smaller hitch size of 1-1/4 inches. Your bike rack is designed for the larger hitch size of 2 inch which we have the adapter # HT5R for. But you should note that when you use an adapter like this you cut the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. So you'd be left with 100 lbs tongue weight capacity and limited to only carrying 2 bikes.

  • Hitch Adapter to Allow Use of Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike 2-Inch Rack in 1-1/4-Inch Class II Hitch
  • It is possible to use a hitch adapter like # HT5R from Brophy to allow installation of a 2-inch hitch bike rack such as the Yakima RidgeBack 4 # Y02458 in a smaller 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch. This adapter's 5-inches of rise will give you better clearance if you have a steep driveway entrance or if you just want the peace of mind of knowing you don't have to worry about the bike tires touching the ground. There are two drawbacks to doing this: using any adapter will cut your hitch's capacity...
