Capture plate for Superglide

So i got the capture plate for my superglide and the only thing that holds it on is one bolt on the front. Thats fine bc all it needs is to not fall off the pinbox when its not hooked to the hitch.

its abit wider than than the pinbox itself and it shifts/moves when you turn. I dont think it hurts anything towing wise, but it klunks and pops when u turn.

I was thinkin about either wedging a piece of metal or something in the small space between the side of the pinbox and the capture plate, or drilling a hole in each side and putting a bolt threw with nuts to hold it in place.

here are some pics

look at the front of the pinbox.....in this pic the trailer is in a straight line behind the truck. notice how the hitch itself is turned a bit.




any input??

I may be wrong but I do not think there should be any "slop" in the fit of the capture plate. I looked at some designs and they had either bolts that rigidly attached the plate to the king pin box or four set-screws that rigidly fixed the plate. I did not see any holes where the set screws could (should?) go.

Here is a link to the Pull-Rite design: http://www.pullrite.com/superglide_capt.htm

Not sure about the Super Glide, but you need to move your break away cable down and attach it to something other than the hitch. It needs to attach to the truck in my opinion.

Did you order this from Pull Rite? I have used both capture plates on my super glide and none of them look like what you are showing. The capture plate, hitch and king pin should all be lined up perfectly straight. I am currently using the plate with the four set screws.

I have a 16000k super guide is the capture plate the one mounted to the King Pin? If so they mounted and secured mine when I brought the hitch.

I have the universal capture plate with all the holes in it sittin in the garage. with that you have to drill a minimum of 10 holes in the pinbox then bolt it to the pin box, per pullrite instructions

I just talked to pullrite. there are 2 diff plates for the Lippert 1621...........when i ordered mine from tweetys i told them i had a 1621 and thats what they sent.

I just called tweetys and they are taking care of it. Said it was their fault for not asking the first time. they are sending the new, correct one, to me today.

glad that is taken care of.

I put a clip on my 5er hitch rails down at one of the rail anchor bolts and clip the cable there.

lol lol

I thought about putting it on one of the anchor bolts but dont think the cable is long enough. if i were to turn all the way one direction and it was hooked on the other side of the bed for ex. i think it would pop it. maybe i can add an extension cable to the other cable and secure it very well

I never had any issues with the cable length when we had the 5er. It was clipped to the rear rail. Next time you hook it up, have some one run through a full turn, while you check the cable length at varios turning points.
