Warning and Usage Guidelines
Will not increase overall towing or tongue capacity of trailer hitch
Do not use more than one adapter at a time
Do not use adapters with weight distribution systems
I bought this riser because I pull a jeep behind my RV with a surge brake system. I needed the riser to level the system. This item worked great because it lifted the hitch receiver 4.5 in. and kept the weight limit needed to pull the Jeep. Other risers like this do not have towing capacity and are meant for things like bike racks.

This product is exactly what I needed. It is built very well and I would recommend it to anyone. I bought a wheel chair ramp for my RAV4 and had to remove the spare tire from its' mount on the rear swinging door so I could get the ramp to fold up when not in use. However, I had to put my spare tire in the 'trunk' by lowering one side of the back seat to get it there because I could not open the rear swinging door only about 8 inches with the ramp mounted, even with the ramp folded down and ready to accept the wheel chair. The door hit on the ramp. This drop hitch solved two problems. I can now open the back door with the ramp in the unfolded, down position, and was able to remount the spare tire on the outside where it is supposed to be (inside was a safety concern). As an added plus, the wheel chair doesn't have to climb so steep to get onto the ramp (4 1/2 inches lower makes a lot of difference because of the shortness of the ramp). The ramp now folds up nicely against the spare tire. Perfect. Thank You!

First off, I'll tell you what I like about this adapter. It makes my wheel chair lift work as designed. I have a tall vehicle (Ford Expedition) and the hitch is about 2 inches too high. This adapter allows the platform on my lift to touch the ground and that allows me to load my chair. There was an adapter available from the lift manufacturer, but it cost $190, a no brainer for buying this adapter. The quality of construction is good and the finish is good. I ordered this on the 9th and received it on the 12th, can't beat that!! Packaging was good, received in good condition.
Now, let me tell you what I don't like about this adapter. First, I had to drill out the hole for the hitch pin. For some reason the manufacturer thinks a Class III hitch uses a 1/2 pin. Wrong! It uses a 5/8 inch pin. Problem with this is I had to buy a $17 drill to correct that issue. The next issue is that I wish they would drill a couple more holes in the part that goes into the receiver on my Expedition. I could shorten up the lengt
