Review of the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket


Speaker 1: Today we'll be having a look at the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket. Part Number DM6100. Many of our customers here at etrailer have come to us and have expressed that they've had experienced difficulty in the past when it comes time to remove the 5th wheel assembly from the bed of their truck when they want to have full access to it when they're not towing their trailer. Many have also said that it takes two to three people sometimes to remove a 5th wheel assembly, especially when they have a slider, such as this one, because the slider assembly adds a lot of weight. When you want to make it a one man operation, that's where this Demco Lifting Bracket comes into place.As you will notice it looks like a kingpin. That serves a purpose of sliding into the jaws of our 5th wheel giving us a solid attachment point.

To utilize it we'll simply open our jaws of our 5th wheel. With the jaws open we can insert our lifting device. Making sure we watch our fingers. Enclose the jaws around it. With our lifting adapter now in place we now have an eyelet here to attach a cable or chain to a engine hoist, a standard hoist on a ceiling, a crane, a wench, something of that nature.

Any lifting device that you have where you can attach a cable to properly. We can use that to lift this out of the bed of our truck.Now this lifting device is made of a sturdy steel construction and has a lifting capacity of 500 lbs., which is minimally sufficient to handle most every 5th wheel regardless if you had a slider or not. For a few dimensions for you, you're looking at 5-3/4" tall, from the very base of it to the very top of it. Diameter here is 2", just like your standard kingpin. The base is 3" wide.

The eyelet opening has a diameter of 1-1/8". That completes our look at the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket. Part Number DM6100.
