The right combination of parts
on August 15, 2013
I got this for use on a Schwinn trailer that came with a less ideal mount, which does not have the angled clevis hitch. While you can buy just the knob, it is best to get the whole kit here so that you are sure the knob fits the receptacle.
I tried just using the knob with my Schwinn receptacle, and they just barely couldn't be made to line up. So I finished the job and installed the receptacle with spring on my trailer. I actually got two, one each for my wife's bike and my own, so that we aren't constantly switching parts.
This mounts to most dropouts by sliding over a quick release skewer. It has clearance for some threaded axles. It does not look like it can clear larger than 10mm, though I may be wrong.
The only drawback has little to do with this design and more to do with the bike. If your dropout has a raised portion above the skewer seat, this may interfere. On my Diamondback Overdrive, I have to point it down around 45deg. Not an issue with my wife's bike. Workable for me, but possibly an issue for some. Just something to be aware of.
