A swivel hitch is designed to provide the extra range of side-to-side motion present in a motorcycle ball-and-socket coupling that does not occur in trikes and four-wheelers.
A swivel offers a smoother towing experience for large or heavily loaded trailers. It also protects your bike and your trailer in case the bike happens to tip over. Without a swivel, the tongue or hitch can be twisted and damaged. With a swivel in place, you'll just need to pick up your bike, wipe the embarrased look off your face, and ride on.
This swivel adaptor is designed to fit couplers stamped "Dutton-Lainson" as well as most generic couplers with a 2.5 inch center-to-center distance between bolt holes.
NOTE: Trailers with a 2.5" wide tongue such as the Harbor Freight and other imported trailers require the use of spacers and a new 2" coupler found in the Piggybacker kit. You will need to cut and redrill the tongue to fit the swivel adaptor kit.
