You're going to love this newly redesigned PopUp Hitch!
Smoother action and trouble free. We've made the best hitch even better. So simple you'll wonder why you didn't think of it. One pull of the handle to raise the ball is all it will take to convince you that this is the hitch you want. Try it and see.
We've replaced the cam mechanism with a simple yet strong and reliable slide to raise and lower the ball. Pull the rod to raise the ball and push to lower. It's that simple!
"What keeps the ball from falling down?"
That is a common question and the answer is quite simple. Look at the following picture:
When the ball is fully raised with the Roll Pin stop against the tube the ball is resting securely on the flat surface at the top of the slide. In this position, the Stainless Steel Detent Ball with 30lbs of spring behind it to mates with a hole in the bottom of the slide this prevents the slide from moving until the handle is pushed in to over-ride the spring. This is similar to the little ball that holds a socket on a ratchet wrench only much stronger.
Quick, easy and clean. PopUp gives meaning to the phrase "User Friendly." Tow when you need to and enjoy a smooth bed for all those other jobs when an ordinary hitch ball is always in the way.
Safe and Strong
PopUp does not sacrifice strength for convenience. Hitches are rated at 7,500 lbs. maximum tongue weight and 30,000 lbs. maximum trailer weight.
PopUp hitch components bolt together with the truck providing an extremely strong and reliable towing system. And you get this comforting strength with only a 3" hole in the truck bed floor, the smallest of ANY convertible gooseneck hitch ball you can buy. PopUp hitches are built specifically for each truck model – so they are a perfect fit.
For safe towing, spring loaded U-bolts (which are level with the bed floor when not in use) are provided for anchoring Safety Chains.
The Strength is Built-In
Front and Rear Cross Members are fabricated from 2" X 2.5" X .375" angle. (1" X 2" steel bar is used for the Front Cross Member in Dodge and for the Rear Cross Member in new body style Chevy and GMC Silverado/Sierra.) Cross Members span and sit on top of the truck frame, thereby transferring all trailer tongue weight directly to the frame of the tow vehicle.
Installation is quick and easy without lifting the bed of the truck.
