Eliminate Mismatched Hitch Configurations and Unsteady Trailer Movement

This high-quality hitch adapter converts a 1-1/4” hitch receiver tube to 2”, eliminating dangerous mismatched trailer hitch configurations.

Each hitch adapter is 12” long with a 6-1/8” overlay extension for use in either rise or drop applications, with 6-1/4” and 7-7/8” length between pin holes.

5 Stars Perfect adapter

Wally from TX wrote (February 09, 2017):

Intitially I ordered the straight 1 & 1/4 to 2" adapter for my 2002 Montana van for the carrier I purchase here. Unfortunately as the area I live in has a lot of dips etc in the roads. and sometimes the carrier while loaded with my wife's mobility scooter would hit the pavement cover over one of these dips in the roadway. I ordered this adapter and it arrived within 3 days. I needed to cut the plastic cover on the rear bumber so the tongue would go far enough into the hitch that was installed on my van. That was the only difficulty I encountered and wasn't that hard to deal with. No the carrier doesn't bottom out with her scooter mounted.

5 Stars Good quality construction, and good finish work

Dan from CT wrote (February 10, 2016):

I have a Subaru Forester, and the only receiver hitch I could make fit was a 1.25" receiver. When using a hitch mounted platform, I needed to use an adapter that went straight out of the 1.25" receiver, and then, with a little luggage in the rear of the SUV, the platform was getting too close to the ground for my comfort. This raises it up nicely (and saved me from having to weld something on my own).

5 Stars 1-1/4" to 2" hitch riser for 1.25" receiver hitches

J. Toth from TX wrote (October 15, 2015):

Excellent product. Well made. Very sturdy. Paint job is excellent to say the least. Give enough clearance to the rear bumper of the vehicle. It can be position to raise the bike rack or to lower it. It fits perfectly on the 1-1/4" section on the vehicle. I strongly recommend it if you are trying to get a 1-1/4" to 2" hitch. Delivery was quick.

5 Stars Strong adapter!

5 Stars Adaptability and use

Edward from TX wrote (June 11, 2015):

I have been needing and adapter for a power chair carrier that would raise the carrier 3 or 4 inches and was strong enough to carry 200 pounds. This rising adapter fit the bill perfectly.

5 Stars DRH-2

Alan from PA wrote (April 24, 2015):

Installed hitch on 2012 Chevy Cruz but bike rack was to low to ground, searched for riser that would work but be far enough from bumper, this one works and has at least 3/4 inch or more clearance!

5 Stars Only 1.25" to 2" rise adapter that will clear 2007 to 2011 Camry bumper

Som from ID wrote (February 27, 2015):

The DRH-2 is the only rise adapter I've found that will fit and clear the 2007 to 2011 Camry bumper when used with my Draw-Tite 36426 hitch (sister hitches: Hidden Hitch 90152 and Reese 51190) as it's somewhat recessed in. All other rise adapters were too short and would not let the 2" receiver portion clear the bumper. This hitch allows for approximately 1 7/8" of bumper clearance when measured from the rearmost, topmost portion of the 2" receiver of the adapter on my Camry. Very sturdy build.

5 Stars Another Satisfied Customer

Tom from KY wrote (December 19, 2014):

I needed the riser since I was using it for a bike rack on my 2015 Corolla and needed the ground clearance. I also needed the extra spacing of the pin hole to maintain clearance from the back bumper. This product is everything it is advertised to be, delivery was speedy especially this time of year, and I will always look to Discount Ramps for future needs.

5 Stars Perfect hitch converter

Fantastic 1-1/4 to 2 inch converter. holds my bike transporter just that extra bit higher to keep the bicycle wheel away from the road surface. Love this thing....

4 Stars Nice converter for UTV

Burton from UT wrote (October 15, 2014):

This is a very nice hitch converter for a Polaris Rxr 800. Also the fact that you can turn it over and change the height of the hitch is great.

5 Stars Raise ur level, with options!

Kham (K.Train) from OR wrote (September 29, 2014):

Glad this 1 1/4" to 2" hitch adapter was available with two holes so you can adjust the depth it goes into receiver hitch. Lucky for me it went in deeper, so I feel it is a bit more stable. Most other competitors only had one hole. Now I'm able to us my bike carrier without scraping the ground. Thanks a bunch!

5 Stars Hitch adapter

Walter from TN wrote (September 12, 2014):

Just received this DRH-2 hitch adapter today 09/12/2014. I have a cargo carrier for my 09 Madza 5 van. I had a standard 1 1/4" to 2" adapter. It was dragging in low spaces. This unit raised it enough to not allow the carrier to drag.
