Video Transcript for Kuat Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve Review

What's up everybody It's AJ with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna check out this Kuat Receiver Reducer. So, it's gonna be magnetic. And what you're gonna do is take this and put it in our 2-1/2 inch hitch, and just slide in the bottom portion there. It's got a lip up here, to catch it. And make sure you don't slide all the way in.

Get the top portion in. And now it's ready for you to put your 2 inch x 2 inch bike rack in there and hit the road. Let's check it out. Take a closer look with the bike rack installed. Now you can see that it really took up that gap in there, and you're still able to use the anti-rattle that's built-in to the NV 2.0.

So I can shake the whole truck back and forth. There's no rattling or movement here, so the reducer is doing a really good job of filling up that gap and keeping everything nice and tight. Let's take a closer look at how it works. So we got the 2 pieces that you put in there individually and you see the circle here at the bottom is where the magnet is. So that's what's gonna make it stay in the inside of your hitch.

And you got the lip on the outside that catches here, to keep it in place. So just take this one, slide in there, and make sure the groove here is gonna go with the hole 'cause it's gonna allow that pin to go in there. So, we slide that in, just like that on the bottom. It's nice that lip catches, you don't have to worry about not lining that part up, or it sliding all the way in trying to get it out. That would be kind of a pain.

Then the same thing with the top one. Make sure that it goes, the magnet towards the top, and then this cut out is gonna go towards the other side, so you can still get that pin through very easily. And as long as the pin's in there and those notches you got through there, you don't have to worry about it falling out either. A nice thing about the magnets being in there too is not only keeps the sleeve in there, but it'll keep it in there when you go to remove the bike rack. Some other reducers will come out with the bike rack and you have to remove it from the shank, but this, those magnets help grip it in there. So then you just pull the bike rack out. It's not a big deal. Overall it's got a black powder coat, steel construction. So it's gonna be able to stand up to rust and corrosion if you leave it in the back of your hitch. Now, I'd recommend probably taking it out when you're not using it 'cause there's no point just leaving it there. It's pretty easy to pull out and just throw in your truck. It doesn't take up a lot of space. But if you do leave it out there overnight it's not gonna ruin it or anything like that. Now, I really like the design of it. It's really easy to use. Another thing is that with other hitch reducers sometimes, or those are just a sleeve, so you'll slide those in there, they can easily slide back out, like we showed you with that bike rack. It usually comes out with the bike rack, or you have to adjust those as well. I like that this stays put and isn't a huge pain to actually work around when it is in your hitch. So overall, I like it. I recommend it. It's gonna be great for any 2 inch bike rack that you wanna use in a 2-1/2 inch hitch. I think that about does it. Thanks for hanging out, and hope this helped..

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (28 Customer Reviews)

Carry your 2" hitch bike rack in your vehicle's 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" trailer hitch receiver. Raised tab prevents the adapter from sliding in too far. Compatible with Kuat flatlock hitch cam systems and standard hitch pin holes.

After one year this product works as advertised and is built tough like all Kuat products. The strong magnets hold the reducer in place and it does not rattle once the Kuat cam lock is tightened.



by:

I received the hitch and it works fine but I was lead to believe that it would "tighten up" the transition between the 2.5" and the 2". Works great otherwise.
Thanks

This reducer does have magnets incorporated in it to help keep it from sliding out of the hitch when removing the hitch accessory however it will not act like a anti rattle device. If your hitch accessories have hollow shanks I recommend an anti rattle lock like part # SHP2040-XL.



by:

I called and questioned about hitch issue with bike rack and they recommended this. Works so well and fixed perfectly.



by:

Works great for a 2019 F250 with 2-1/2” receiver.



by:

Works great and allows the retention feature on my Kuat bike rack to engage the receiver. Also makes it much easier to get the hitch pin in as you don’t have to line up the hitch, sleeve, and receiver

Greta product. It fit great b

This is awesome! I'm glad they finally came out with this recently! My tailgate still fully opens with my Kuat NV2.0 rack hooked up. I wish they had this last year because I had to buy the overpriced Brophy 2.5" to 2" hitch reducer for my Silverado 2500HD which I'm currently repainting since it rusted so fast. 5/5 would recommend this Kuat reducer.

Works exactly as intended on my Kuat Transfer v2 2 bike rack on a 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD.

  • What is the Overall Length of the Kuat Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve # KU93VR?
    I can definitely dispel any confusion you have. Like the video, I confirmed with Kuat that the total length of the Kuat Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve - 2-1/2" to 2" Hitch # KU93VR is 6-1/4" long. I went ahead and attached a diagram that shows this measurement. As far as what length you need for the 2-1/2" receiver on your 2019 Ford F-350, this sleeve will sit flush with the opening of your hitch receiver. This is because the sleeve has elongated side holes that you can adjust to get the...

  • Can Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack Be Used on a 2-1/2 2023 GMC Sierra 3500 Hitch Receiver
    The Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack # Y47VR won't secure properly to the adapter you're talking about. It's a great rack and I love the anti-rattle system, but the anti-rattle is built to essentially brace itself inside the receiver and then there is a small security pin to help keep things lined up (see attached photo), but in your setup that security pin would be the thing holding the spacer/reducer and the rack wasn't designed to operate like that. For an alternative option I recommend using...

  • Parts Needed to Use Kuat Bike Rack on 2022 Ford F-350 With 3 Inch Receiver
    What I would recommend is the Kuat Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve - 2-1/2" to 2" Hitch # KU93VR. This can be used with your current hitch reducer and will still allow your anti-rattle wedge to engage. However, it is likely you will need a new locking hitch pin since the one you have is designed for a 2" hitch. If you don't already have a locking hitch pin for the 3" receiver on your 2022 F-350 you can use the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63259.

  • Will the Kuat Magnetic Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve Work for Towing
    The Kuat Magnetic Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve part # KU93VR is not designed for towing so I don't recommend using this as such. Instead, I recommend the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve part # C45405 which will allow you to use your 2" hitch accessories inside your 2-1/2" receiver. Please note, you might also need a larger hitch pin for the 2-1/2" for which I recommend the Pin and Clip for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches part # C21500.

  • Hitch Reducer Sleeve Recommendation for Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack
    I recommend using the Kuat Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve # KU93VR for the Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack # TH83JV because it sits closer to the end of the hitch receiver so you'll have more than enough space for the AutoAttach system to work properly. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

  • How Can I Haul My 2 Inch Kuat Rack With My Ford Truck That Has A 3 Inch Hitch Installed
    When it comes to hauling your Kuat bike rack with your Ford Truck with a 3 inch hitch you will not be able to stack 2 of The Kuat Magnetic Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve # KU93VR together. Per the manufacturer it is not designed to be stacked together and it would not work properly. The Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeves # C45408 is what you will need. Using this adapter will reduce your 3 inch hitch to a 2-1/2 inch or 2 inch receiver and allow you to use your Kuat rack and anti rattle...

    Yes, the Kuat Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve # KU93VR will work with the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack # KU84FR in your 2-1/2" receiver.
