FINALLY, A HITCH
EXTENSION THAT IS THERE WHEN YOU NEED IT!
Whether your boat of choice is Bass, Sail,
Motor, or PWC, the
Extend A Hitch makes boat launching easier!
Most power boaters and sailors
have been through it: you take that long drive
up to your favorite lake, or bay. The conditions don't look very good, but you
launch anyway. After a relaxing day of boating, you get back to the dock.
The ramp is covered with algae, and your first thought is "I hope I can get
out of this." Because it's now low tide, or the lake level is low, you are
now trying to retrieve your boat at that all-too-common shallow ramp....
back up as far as you can, your tires in the water. On some ramps you have to go
back so far as to have your tail pipe bubbling, with your vehicles rear end in
the water. Water now gets into the housing through the air breather, destroying
the seals, bearings and braking system. Now your throwing your back out,
cranking your boat up over the rollers. After all this, you get your boat on the
trailer, put your vehicle in gear, and YOUR TIRES SPIN ON THE ALGAE AND MUCK ON THE RAMP!
YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO
THROUGH THIS, ANYMORE!!
Extend A Hitch hitch extension provides extra footage of extension
to your boats trailer tongue. Directly mounted onto the trailer, the
hitch extension retracts neatly under your boat trailer when not in use. As you can see above,
you still tow with YOUR TRAILER'S COUPLER.
arriving at the launch ramp, you disconnect your towing coupler. A simple pull
of the pin and the hitch extension slides all the way out for use in launching, and
Extend A Hitch hitch extension gives you that extra security when
you need it. The hitch extension lets you get your boat back further in the water, while
avoiding the costly damage to your vehicle's seals, bearings, and braking
system, or the damage of salt water to your vehicle's rear end.

Shore launching Jet Ski's
Having this extra length makes a HUGE difference while
you ever do any river launching or shore launching, whether it's a fishing boat down at Baja, jet ski's at
that remote lake, or your Zodiac on that challenging river, the Extend
extension is ideal for getting your craft in the water, while keeping your tires on solid
Sailboat launchers will appreciate this sailboat trailer accessory that
extends your trailer tongue, letting you access marinas and ramps that were
impossible to launch at because of your keel.
The Extend A Hitch lets you
enjoy your day of boating, knowing that you can easily, and safely, retrieve
your boat. No more worrying about; 1)will I damage my vehicle, 2)will I get
stuck, 3)will I need a costly tow truck, 4)will I throw out my back, again,
cranking my boat up, or, the ultimate disaster, 5)WILL I
LAUNCH MY TRUCK ALONG WITH MY BOAT?
