Automatic Trailer Hitch Flips Back Out Of The Way
The Flip ín Hitch mounts on your vehicleís hitch and comes with an 11-in. wide guide plate that folds up out of the way underneath your pickup once the trailer is hooked up. Side rails guide the trailer up toward a spring-loaded trigger on the unit as the vehicle is slowly backed up. Once the trailer engages the trigger, the guide plate automatically folds back out of the way and locks into storage position, allowing the trailer to drop down onto the ball.
The system is installed by removing the nut from the ball on your existing receiver hitch. Then position the Flip ín Hitch flat against the bottom of the receiver bar and retighten the nut.
ďThere are other guide systems on the market but they donít fold out of the way, and they donít have a guide plate as wide as the Flip n Hitch,Ē says co-inventor Mike Morehead. ďAs long as youíre within the 11-in. guide area the Flipín Hitch will drop the trailer hitch right on the ball and make a positive connection every time. Itís made from heavy metal so itíll stand up to heavy use without bending.Ē
Two models are available. One for pickups equipped with a standard 6,000-lb. tow bar and a 1-in. ball, and the other for pickups with a 12,000-lb. tow bar and a 1 1/4-in. ball. Both models sell for $98.50 plus S&H.
