Heavy Duty - works well!
We bought this hitch for a heavy duty bike carrier and it works really well. The clip noted with the picture comes with it in the box. The staff was really helpful and assessing what we needed. Thanks Northern!

Solid Construction--Attractive Price--Good Product
From reading other reviews before I bought this hitch adapter, I knew that it might not fit in my 2" receiver tightly, and I confirmed this after purchasing the item. So, I employed the quick, easy, inexpensive solution and wrapped the adapter with just enough black electrical tape (about 4-5 rounds) to allow the adapter to fit snugly into the 2" receiver. This keeps my hitch-mounted bicycle rack quite steady.
Someday, I might take the time to drill and tap a hole in the side of the adapter to allow a pinch bolt to totally eliminate all unwanted movement within the hitch.

It does the job
I bought this to go along with a splitter I also bought. I wanted to be able to carry both my hitch basket and my bike rack on the same hitch. This fits and the bike rack fits in it. This allows me to maxamize the utility of my SUV.

This works well, a little loose in the 2" Tube, but it is totally secure and safe for towing. I used it to plug in a Bike Carrier and it worked well even though it "Floated" around a little.

It is a little loose - Everything I have ever plugged into any hitch was either too loose or too tight. So, I did what I have done with every hitch I have owned - Tapped a 5/16 inch threaded hole in the hitch on my truck, tightened down a bolt that presses against the adapter, and now it is tight and secure. This also deters theft.

As a previous reviewer advised, the hitch adapter was a bit wobbly, but two wraps (3 was too many) of electrical tape before and after the hitch pin hole tightened it up nicely. Now I can finally use my 1-1/4" bike rack again. Thank you, Northern.

The adapter works well with very little excess play. Simply put, it does the job.
The only (slight) disadvantage, which is nearly unavoidable, is that when the adapter is inserted it extends the length of the receiver, thereby increasing downward leverage on the hitch. I think a different design would be feasible. One which extends the length of the receiver much less. But overall, this is a good adapter that presents no major problems.
