You can't beat a second pair of eyes to guide you when hitching up. But when this isn’t possible, the Easy Hitch is a helpful solution. The idea is simple – attach one of the magnetic poles to the tow ball and the other to the van's hitch head.

Once they have been extended to the required height, activate the flashing lights to help guide you on. By aiming to join the two lights together, the rod on the tow ball should eventually be knocked off as it comes into contact with the hitch head.

You can't beat a second pair of eyes to guide you when hitching up. But when this isn’t possible, the Easy Hitch is a helpful solution. The idea is simple – attach one of the magnetic poles to the tow ball and the other to the van's hitch head.

Once they have been extended to the required height, activate the flashing lights to help guide you on. By aiming to join the two lights together, the rod on the tow ball should eventually be knocked off as it comes into contact with the hitch head.

The outfit should then be in the perfect position to hook up. As a guiding device, the Easy Hitch does the job effectively. The reasonable price also makes it more affordable than other solutions, such as fitting a reversing camera.
