Has anybody heard of or used this product. Seems like a simple but great product, but I am wondering about it's functionality

Yes! Have one for my Equalizer and it is one of the best purchases I have made since owning the camper! I can easily carry the hitch one handed.

My father wanted one a couple of years ago so I got him one and he said it made it a lot easier to put the hitch into the receiver on his truck. He gave up camping last year and now I have it and I agree with him. He was 80 and it was just easier to handle. Sometime i use it and sometime I don't.

I have one and it does work. Makes it easier (and cleaner for your hands) to get the hitch in and out.

OK, 3 quick and positive responses convinced me to purchase this product. Just ordered one from Amazon Prime. $ 25.30 and should be here on Sunday the 17th

Thanks to all

I use one on our blue ox - its fantastic. So much easier to carry the hitch and keep the ball grease away from clothes. Ill be shocked if you dont love it.

I have a blue ox also. My hitch grip has arrived and it may be the best thing I ever bought for my trailer

Fantastic!

Tremendous help moving the Equal i zer hitch head around using the Hitchgrip tool.

Made well, works well and cheap!

Possible tip here... I mounted a 2" hitch receiver to the back bumper of our trailer to store the Equal i zer hitch head when we set up and I take it off the pickup...

I put the torsion bars and pins inside the rear bumper, I don't keep sewer hoses in there...

Able to lock the hitch head to the mount, nice and neat, outta the way and the Hitchgrip tool helps carrying it back there.

Oops, pic is sideways, not sure how to fix that.

Don't ya hate that!?

It usually happens from iphone pictures, I find. You have to bring it into some other software to rotate it. I opened mine in preview (on a mac) and then "exported" to the same file type so it forced it to re-write the file, which seemed to carry the rotation with it. I think you can rotate it all you want on the iphone and it will always come out sideways.
