Hitch Bolt for Saris Bike Rack with 1-1/4 Inch Shank Using 2 Inch Receiver Adapter

Question:

I have a 1-1/4 inch Saris bike rack and a 2 inch receiver. I have an adapter i place inside the hitch to allow the 1-1/4 inch rack to work with the 2 inch hitch. I tried to use my original bolt in the 2 inch hitch to bind the rack, adapter and hitch, but the thread section of the bolt does not seem to be long enough to grab threaded section of the rack. What product do you recommend in this case: the solution for 1-1/4, 2 inch or something else?

Replacement hitch pins are designed to be specific to your bike rack, so knowing which model you have is important to ensure you get the right hitch pin. That said, the Replacement Hitch Tite Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin for Saris Bike Racks with 1-1/4" Shanks # SA3015 will fit the Saris Bike Porter, Freedom, Axis Steel, Axis Aluminum, Cycle-On, T-Rax, Glide EX 4, and T-RAX Sport racks, which covers the majority of Saris racks and it is likely yours is one of these (just be sure to verify).

This is designed to work with your rack even if you use the Hitch Adapter Sleeve for Saris 1-1/4" Hitch Bike Racks # SA3032. I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well of these products.
