No need for a capture plate as long as you visually verify your hitch is PROPERLY latched and there is no space between the pinbox plate and the hitch plate.


To the original poster please disregard the quoted post.

To Cummins12V98 - Giving bad advice is worse than giving no advice. You have no idea what a pullrite superglide hitch is or how it works. Without the capture plate the hitch would not operate properly and damage would occur.


I stand corrected! "Capture plate" to me is the device that stops the RV from dropping if high hitched for example.


I get you but Superglide is a different animal that requires that specific plate to rotate the head of the hitch. It's a great slider hitch but I went in a completely different direction with an Andersen. So glad I didn't go the slider route BTW

I would be curious why???


Good question?

I have one on a Husky hitch and it saved my truck bed twice. I got where I hated to admit I had one since they were so controversial. Obviously, observing the proper connection in the first place will eliminate all issues, but twice I violated that good rule.

Sorry to the OP for the "off topic" comments.
