Review of Baron and Baron Hitch Covers HDHC86-K

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Harley Davidson Vintage Bar and Shield Trailer Hitch Cover. Hitch cover's are a fun way to show off and they look pretty cool, but they also keep dirt and grime out of the receiver tube of your hitch, which is going to help prevent rust and corrosion build up. That way you can easily install your ball mount or other hitch product accessories with you need them. This is an officially licensed Harley Davidson logo and product. It's going to feature a nice rotary engraved design with the Harley Davidson Bar and Shield emblem. It's going to be filled with black, orange, and white paint, really nice fade resistant coloring. It's going to feature a weather resistant zinc face plate that adds style to the vehicle and it's going to have a stainless steel base that's going to last a long time.

Stainless steel is highly resistant to rust and corrosion. The units also going to come with 3 foam gaskets. The gaskets install over the shank here and you can use 1, 2, 3 or a combination of each one. Basically what these do is they're deigned to go in between the backside of the plate, or the front face, or the face of the hitch cover in the receiver tube opening of the hitch. It's going to help take out some noise that sometimes is often experienced between the hitch cover and the opening of the hitch itself, so 3 foam gaskets are included to eliminate rattling. It's going to come with a locking stainless steel bolt that secures the hitch cover inside of the hitch and it's going to come with the tools to get it installed.

I'll show you how to do that in a moment. This is designed for 2" inch by 2" inch trailer hitch receivers. Take a measurement here of the face plate. Going this direction, we're looking at about 5 7/8" of an inch and a height measurement of about 3 1/4" inches tall. Very simple installation. All you got to do is slide it in the receiver tube of your hitch, align up your pin holes. Now you're going to have 2 pinholes, so you can choose whichever one works best for your application.

Once you have that in there, you take this locking bolt set in, place it through on each side, go ahead and hand tighten it, take the included tools, place one in on each side and just finish the tightening process. It also makes for a nice low profile design here on each side of the receiver tube of the hitch. Really nice deign and again, you can see that those foam pads are really going to help fill that gap between the back of the face plate and the opening of the receiver tube of your hitch. That's going to do it for today's look at the Harley Davidson Vintage Bar and Shield Trailer Hitch Cover.
