Spring Arm Setup


Never tow with loose socket bolts. Tighten socket bolts to a minimum of 60 ft-lbs torque before each towing session.


Do not pound directly on the sockets to move them. Pounding may cause the sockets to crack or chip. Use only the lever force of the spring arm to move tight sockets. Loosen the socket bolt if required. Re-tighten them once the socket has been moved.

Insert spring arms into the sockets in the hitch head. Arms for the 12K and 14K models are side specific. They are notched slightly off-center, and should be inserted into the socket with the notch on the inside, and with the label facing outward.

Insert the socket pin through the hole in the socket and spring arm, and secure it with the socket pin clip. You may need to use the spring arm as a lever to spread the sockets open, which will allow the spring arms to be lifted and placed onto the L-bracket more easily.
