Hitch Bed Extender needed two repairs right out of the box but then worked fine.
on August 13, 2015
The price was amazing, the hitch bed extender arrived promptly, and the materials seem rugged but the quality control was disappointing. There was no instruction manual in the box although the sticker on the unit clearly states the importance of keeping the manual with the unit to insure proper and safe use. There are 4 bolts threaded into the extender bar - one of those was not threaded all the way through so the bolt would not tighten down on the lock washer. I was unable to tap the hole deeper but adding a second thick flat washer allowed the bolt to tighten against the lock washer. Also, a clip is supposed to pass through the extender to join the two halves - the hole on one side was egg shaped as though drilled twice but there was no corresponding hole on the other side. I drilled through so the pin could be fitted properly. Once these modifications were done the unit went together easily and functioned well although the parts fit very loosely as other reviewers have noted.
