Review of the MaxxTow Magnetic Telescoping Trailer Hitch Aligner


Today we're going to be reviewing part number MT70043. These are the MaxxTow Magnetic, Telescoping Trailer Hitch Aligners. Line your trailer up with your tow vehicle quickly and easily with this alignment kit. All you have to do is attach one magnetic rod to your trailer's coupler, and attach the other to your truck's ball mount, and then line up the balls in your rear-view mirror. You can see that, without the hitch aligners on, this is definitely a two-person job. I have my friend back here guiding and directing me, making sure that my hitch ball is going to line up with the coupler on my trailer. Now we have our hitch aligners in place, and we're simply going to back up. Make sure that we have them lined up with one another. As you can see, the way that we have them installed today is as soon as we had our ball underneath our coupler 00:00:53, one of the hitch aligners fell off, allowing us to know that our hitch ball was directly under our coupler.

Now we're ready to make our connection. Another possibility is just to mount it to the actual ball mount, and it's still going to have the same effect. You'll just need to get out and check as to when the ball is underneath the coupler. When installing these, you want to make sure that your hitch ball on your vehicle is going to be set lower than the coupler height on your trailer. You can use the aligners to do that. First I'm going to take this down until it's about level with the ball mount. Then we can take this to our trailer and make sure that the coupler sits over top of this height.

You can see here. It looks like that's going to be the perfect fit. These aligners have a telescoping feature. That way you can adjust the height. You can see there: nice, easy, fluid motion. With it in the fully retracted position, it's going to give us a measurement of 13 1/2" to the top of the ball.

In the fully extended position, it's going to give us a measurement of 33 and one half to the top of the ball. Here on the bottom of the aligner, it's going to feature a magnetic base. That way you can quickly and easily attach one to your coupler and the other one to your ball mount or hitch ball. The aligners are going to be made from a nice, steel construction. We already have one of the aligners installed on our coupler. Now we're ready to install the other one on our truck. We're going to go ahead and place that magnetic base directly on our hitch ball.

Once we have that set, we can adjust the telescoping height and then we're ready to make the connection. That's going to complete today's review of part number MT70043. That's the MaxxTow Magnetic, Telescoping Trailer Hitch Aligner.
