Pole Tongue Adaptor

Equal-i-zer® hitch 6K, 10K, 12K, and 14K models

This guide covers the installation of a standard Equal-i-zer® pole tongue adaptor kit on a pole tongue trailer.  The Equal-i-zer® hitch will work with most surge brake systems.  This method will not work with the Equal-i-zer 4K models 90-00-0400 or 90-00-0401.

This method should be used if your trailer is not compatible with the optional Sway Bracket installation method (See Installation Guide – L-bracket Installation for Pole Tongue Trailers).  This generally occurs if the trailer is equipped with a side mount tongue jack located on the front of the trailer tongue.

You may also contact a customer service representative for support with your installation at 800-478-5578, M-F 8:00am to 5:00pm Mountain time.


  • 3” of clear space along both sides of the tongue somewhere between 27” and 32” back from the coupler ball cavity to mount the adaptor cross bar.
  • Frame must be a box or rectangular shape – both driver and passenger sides must be perpendicular to the ground, and parallel with each other.
  • Equal-i-zer® Pole Tongue Adaptor kit (part # 95-01-5950)
  • Pole Tongue Adaptor kit is not compatible with the Equal-i-zer® 4K model (90-00-0400, 90-00-0401).


Follow the installation instructions included with each Pole Tongue Adaptor kit. Position the cross beam on the trailer tongue, and mount it with the hardware and brackets supplied in the kit.  Install the L-brackets and use your Equal-i-zer Owner’s Manual to set up and adjust them correctly. The completed installation will look like this: See Figure 1.
