Description: This crash tested, energy absorbing custom hitch cover not only covers your ugly receiver hitch, it works as a bumper shield for rear mounted 2” receiver hitches and doubles as a skid plate and bumper shield for front mounted receiver hitches.
It is 16” wide by 6” high, only sticks out 4” beyond your receiver hitch, crushes 2” when hit, won’t interfere with most vehicles equipped with backup alarms and can be used in the down position (shown) to protect against under-ride on full size pickup trucks or SUVs or flipped around to protect against over-ride on small size SUVs.
It has a dual compression system so it can be pinned out for maximum protection or pinned in closer (still energy absorbing) for approach angle clearance during off-road use, tight garage spaces or to avoid being detected by backup alarms. Simply arrange the rubber bumpers / spacers and pin it where you want.
Because this hitch cover is energy absorbing it will protect your family from whiplash, keep your receiver hitch from bending when hit from the rear (unlike most static receiver hitch products – including your ball mount), keeps Braille parallel parkers (people who park by “feel”) from wrecking your bumper, saves your $500 deductible and has a lifetime crash warranty (like all of our products) – if it bends or breaks from a rear end collision, at any speed, it will be replaced absolutely free!
