*PLEASE VERIFY YOUR TONGUE DIMENSIONS PRIOR TO ORDERING. READ BELOW FOR FITMENT REQUIREMENTS*
Our swivel hitch heim coupler has revolutionized motorcycle towing safety and performance. The swivel heim coupler allows 360-degree pivoting beyond a normal coupler rotation for improved safety when towing with a motorcycle. This complete kit includes the swivel coupler with heim joint, hitch post, and hitch post lock (2nd Picture shows everything included with the complete assembly). The swivel heim mounts into the trailer tongue and the 3/4" hitch post (with 3/4" mounting stud) mounts in place of the ball on the motorcycle hitch. This swivel is made of high-quality materials including an aluminum block housing, high tensile stress-proof steel shaft, and stainless steel hitch post. This listing does NOT include the chains and mounting hardware as these items can be reused from your original coupler setup. You can add chains and hardware to your order by selecting them under the individual parts list.
FITMENT REQUIREMENTS: It is your responsibility to confirm fitment to your trailer with the provided dimensions. The swivel coupler will fit all Kompact Kamp Trailers, as well as any trailer tongue with an inside dimension of 1-3/4" x 1-3/4". The swivel bolt mounting holes should be 2-1/4" apart in the tongue. This 3/4" swivel heim is NOT compatible with Bushtec's 5/8" swivel coupler or hitch pin. Read more about the use of a swivel on our blog article here.
