Whoever has tried to attach a bike rack to the hitch of their Defender knows this problem: the spare tire is in the way! This is where this adapter comes in. It attaches to the usual Dixon-Bate rail and thus moves the mounting spot about 30cm further back, clearing most spare tires. Contents of shipment:
- Adapter for Dixon-Bate (30cm)
- 1x Ball head for mounting the rack or tub
- 1x safety pin for the hitch
Two safety pins are required for the correct installment of this adapter, one comes with the hitch itself and the other with this adapter. Should your Hitch not have shipped with such a pin, you can order one here. The Adapter can for technical reasons NOT be used for regular towing! It can only be used for bike racks, game tubs and similar carrying systems.
