The front hook on the hitch engages the front dummy pin on the work tool.Basic Instructions on Operation (detailed instructions are supplied with every hitch):

  • The rear, spring loaded ‘swinging’ hook is moved using a bar which fits into a socket on the hook. As the bar is pulled down, the spring is compressed or deformed as the hook moves. The rear hook, then engages the work tool’s rear dummy pin, the bar is released & the hook clamps onto the pin.
  • A safety pin must then be inserted into the hitch behind the rear spring loaded hook. This safety pin ensures that the hitch does not open during normal work tool use, allowing the hitch to be used safely. DO NOT USE THE SPRING TYPE QUICK HITCH WITHOUT THE SAFETY PIN.
  • To remove the work tool from the hitch, the safety pin must first be removed. The work tool is then released using the bar (as shown above). Remember to replace the safety pin in the hitch once the new work tool has been picked up, or if no further work tools are to be used on the hitch.
