That triangle piece is there for reinforcement. Up or down won't matter.

The hitch can be used either way - up or down. Whoever told you it couldn't is mistaken.

No matter what size receiver you have on your vehicle, your towing capacity is always limited to the lowest-rated component in your application. Whether that be your tow vehicle, the hitch, the ball mount, your trailer or any other component of your towing application.
