Stainless Steel Trailer hitch Receiver

The Stainless Steel trailer hitch receiver difference

 

Here are the facts.

Other trailer hitch manufactures claim their trailer hitches are rust free because they feature one small piece of stainless steel attached to the hitch but this is just flashy marketing. Let’s break this down.

False stainless steel trailer hitches explained:

The part of the trailer hitch that comes into contact with your ballmount, mounted bike rack, cargo tray or other accessories is called the receiver. This is the visible part of the hitch’s square opening that your removable hitch accessories are inserted into. Your trailer hitch receiver is metal and your hitch accessory is metal. It does not take a lot of environmental factors and road salts to cause your accessory and your trailer hitch receiver to fuse together. Once that happens you have varying degrees of trouble. On one end of the spectrum, your hitch and accessory are now a rusty, ugly, dirty, stain-causing mess and on the other end of the spectrum they will eventually fuse together leaving you with having to cut through metal to remove your accessories which can cause irreversible damage or render your equipment unusable. Maybe it will just take a swift kick to break them loose from each other but then you are left with rust flakes and damaged finishes. Rust and corrosion are a plague - once it starts - the infection continues and expands unless it is eradicated through a lot of costly rework and additional expense often requiring completely removing the entire trailer hitch in the process of attempting to remove the rust and refinish the surface. 

What matters with a stainless steel trailer hitch receiver:

The critical point of connection between your hitch and your accessories is the receiver opening. That is why it is necessary that your trailer hitch receiver is composed of stainless steel to prevent this. A small insignificant piece of stainless steel on a part of the hitch that is offered by the other guys will not cut it because that is not the location where your hitch mounted bike racks and trays insert to. The theory behind the other designs on the market is it prevents the removeable stealth receiver design from fusing with and getting stuck into the vehicle frame mounted part of the trailer hitch - but it does not prevent your receiver from becoming a nasty rusty stain inducing eye sore and it does not prevent your hitch-mounted accessories from fusing together with rust. These type of hitch designs are not only inconvenient but they eliminate the ability to use your trailer hitch for anything else because your accessory is forever fused into it.

Aren’t all powder coated trailer hitch finishes created equal?

Nope. 

We sand blast our EcoHitch™ trailer hitches. This is a critical and often skipped step by other trailer hitch manufacturers. Before our trailer hitches are coated in our Chasm Black finish they undergo a rigorous sand blasting process. 

Sandblasting involves shooting sand at an insane force directly at the trailer hitch surface, and nooks and crannies in order to blast any debris away and to rough up the surface - sounds fun right? Once the metal is fully blasted - then and only then - will it be coated with powder coat and tossed into a fiery oven at excruciatingly hot temperatures. 

By roughing up the surface of the trailer hitch prior to applying the finish, the finish is able to adhere to the metal much stronger than it would without it which ensures a higher quality look of your product but also ensures the powder coat finish acts as a protective sealant between the metal of the trailer hitch and the metal of your vehicle to further prevent the likelihood of corrosion. 

Now that sounds spectacular.
