Is a Locking Plate Needed for a Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch


Just purchased a Demco Autoslide 18k fifth wheel hitch from you. I need to attach a Rockwood 2007 Signiture Ultra Lite fifth wheel. Do I need any kind of adapter plate for the pin box to make this work? Thanks.

The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider part # DM8550034 works with most standard pin boxes for the exception of Sidewinder or Revolution's. However, if you have one of the following pin boxes: Glide Ride, Mor Ryde, Trailair Tri Glide, Trailair Flexair, Rota Flex, and 5th Airborne then you will need a locking plate to prevent the kingpin from rotating inside your hitch. I have attached the correct locking plates for the above pin boxes for you below.

MOR/ryde Pin Box: part # DM6025

Trailair Tri-Glide Pin Box: part # DM6095

Original 5th Airborne Pin Box: part # DM6026

Glide Ride Pin Box: part # DM6036

Trailair Rota-Flex/Trailair Flexair Pin Box: part # DM6171

Extended 5th Airborne Pin Box: part # DM6062
