What Size Allen Wrench is Needed for Hitch Adapter on Swagman Trailhead Bike Rack


I finally got the Curt C11411 hitch installed and an now want to install the Swagman S63360 bicycle rack. Can you tell me where to find the right tool to remove the FKE 10.9inch allen bolt, so I can use this rack with a 1-1/4inch receiver? Ive tried researching, but the answer is not coming easy. Also the pin for the rack arms installs okay when in the stow position, but will not install when the arms are extended to carry bikes. Do you advise filing a bit to elongate the hole on either side? This is more than just a snug fit. Thank you,

I spoke with my contact at Swagman and she informed that the size Allen wrench needed to remove the 2 inch adapter is 6 millimeter.

We have heard that the pin for the arms can be a bit difficult to install at first. What other customers had success doing was use a hammer to help get it to install the first few times and then it should clearance itself and work easier.
