Similar to: Gen-Y Torsion Pintle Hook Mounting Plate for 2″ Hitches – 14 Hole – 16,000 lbs, part number GH-1201. This steel adapter plate lets you mount a pintle hook (sold separately) for heavy-duty towing. Move the 4-hole mounting plate up or down along the shank to match your trailer’s height. Plate can be stowed beneath your hitch when not in use. The included shank slides into the 2″ receiver on your tow vehicle and has multiple mounting holes for attaching the plate. This allows you to tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. To adjust the height, simply remove the pin and clip that secures the plate to the shank and move the plate up or down until the desired height is achieved. When not in use, the adapter plate can be stowed out of the way, beneath your trailer hitch. Just remove the plate, flip it around so that it’s under your vehicle, and secure it to the lowest position on the shank. The stainless steel pin is secured with a lanyard so that you won’t lose it while making your adjustments.
