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.
