Thanks everyone for the reply’s, and yes it is a equalizer hitch so the angle would need to be adjusted also.

well if you have so much time on your hands and can spend an hour or two making the change from one TV to another that's great. but to set up each tv once and just leave the hitch head in each tv that's even better.


Since I know what the position is for each different TV, I can reset the head in about 10 minutes, or less. No biggy. I do have more time than money.

And presumably you also have a torque wrench rated to properly torque those two Equal-i-zer head shank bolts, which because of the torque required is not a wrench many own, in which case it would be a "biggie". [emoticon]

I do have a torque wrench and I’m leaning towards setting each up record everything so when I do swap it shouldn’t be much of an iuuse. As someone stated more than likely will end up towing with one vehicle. Thanks

BUT is it capable of 320 ft-lbs which is Progress Mfg's recommended torque for the two shank bolts? I'm not saying you don't but not many of us will have a torque wrench in our workshop that's rated beyond ~ 250 ft-lbs, I know I don't. I got lucky back when I ran a 1,000 / 10,000 lb Equal-i-zer with my K-Z Spree as I had a friend who did own a 600 ft-lb torque wrench, a monster for sure. I also initially used it to secure the hitch ball to the head as that required 430 ft-lbs. [emoticon]
