Collapsible Tow Hitch For Pickups
New from Gingway Mfg. is a collapsible tow hitch for pickups that neatly folds underneath the bumper when not in use.
When you need it, such as for taking your pickup along to the field behind your tractor, you simply fold out the hitch. It's equipped with spring-loaded pins to keep it rigid when towing, yet allow it to freely hinge up and down. Once hooked up, you put the pickup in neutral and it's ready to be towed to the field or down the road.
The standard hitch consists of one 1/4-in. thick formed channel iron brace and one 5/ 16 in. thick channel main tongue (40 in. long), a mounting bracket and a galvanized pipe (2 in. outside dia.) that acts as a hinge.
Comes with bolts and hardware for mounting to the frame of full or half size pickups. Available chrome plated or painted, it sells for $219 ($10 less for half-size pickups). It's not designed for use on passenger, cars, the manufacturer points out.
