How it Works:
The Flip-Over gooseneck hitch by PopUp Gooseneck Hitch is locked in the one-piece ball socket with a spring loaded stainless steel pin. To invert the gooseneck ball, just reach into the driver side rear wheel well and rotate the actuating rod 90 degrees. This cams the retaining pin to the open position. Invert the ball (turn over the ball), and rotate the actuating rod back to its original locked position. That`s all there is to it.
The Flip-Over gooseneck hitch is not only easy - it`s hassle-free. The ball socket is machined from a solid piece of high-grade steel to insure strength and years of service. The retaining pin is machined from stainless steel so it will not rust and seize. The pin is held securely in the locked position by a strong stainless steel spring. When the actuating rod is rotated 90 degrees a cam retracts the retaining pin to its open position so the gooseneck ball can be inverted. When the actuating rod is returned to its locked position - the retaining pin securely locks the gooseneck ball in its socket - extending ball and coupler life.
- Flip-Over gooseneck hitches are rated at 7,500 lbs. maximum tongue weight and 30,000 lbs. maximum trailer weight.
- Flip-Over gooseneck components bolt together with the truck providing an extremely strong and reliable towing system. And you get this comforting strength with only a 3-1/2" hole in the truck bed floor. Flip-Over gooseneck 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.
Designed and Built for Strength:
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 pickup frame, thereby transferring all trailer tongue weight directly to the frame of the tow vehicle.
The gooseneck hitch Center Section, containing the Flip-Over Ball hitch ball mechanism, is fabricated in a 24” long channel formed from 0.25" steel plate. The Center Section assembly is trussed to accommodate extreme vertical and lateral loading. Bolting the Center Section in place between the Cross Members creates a vertical load capacity that greatly exceeds the maximum rear axle load rating of the pickup trucks Flip-Over Ball hitches are designed for.
Flip-Over gooseneck Frame Plates, which secure the hitch to the tow vehicle, bolt to the Front and Rear Cross Members and use existing frame holes in the web of the frame to bolt to the outside of the truck frame.
Flip-Over gooseneck hitches are designed and built to provide years of trouble-free service the cold-finish steel hitch ball is plated with bright yellow chromate.
The installed gooseneck hitch spans the truck frame under the bed floor bolting on the outside of the frame rails using existing holes. It is not necessary to loosen the bed box for installation, and no welding or fabrication is required.
They work fine with bed liners - drop-in or spray-in, and require on a 3-1/2" hole in the bed box floor.
Everything is provided with the Flip-Over gooseneck hitch system, including all installation hardware and useful installation instructions. Some older vehicle hitch models may require frame drilling.
Installation time is about 2 hours.
