Hijacker 21K flat deck fifth wheel hitch reviews?

http://hijacker.com/sl/21k-flat-deck/
Hello I just ordered the Hijacker 21K flat deck fifth wheel hitch but I can't find any reviews on it at all. Does anyone have this hitch? How well does it work for you? Any quirks or issues?
Thank you.

We have the Hijacker hitch, so far no problems. Had it for almost two years and 7,000 miles. Don't see many of these installed. The Pull Rites had problems with galling on the rails, I don't think these will have that problem since they slide on the teflon discs. I think they are a very good hitch, just not a lot of advertising, maybe more now that Demco has bought out the Vancouver company.

Takes two men and a boy to get it out of the truck.

Thank you, how well does the jaw adjustment work?

JMHO, of course, but why not ask this question prior to ordering it?

Cause of the height of my truck deck it was the only hitch that will work so I had no choice but to order it to pull my trailer.
As you can see from the pictures the pin height with the trailer level sits at the same height as the deck. I can move the king pin up and that will give me 2" and I was told I would gain another 5"-6" with an axle flip. The Hijacker Flat Deck is only 9" high so that would mean I would have 1"-2" nose high on the trailer vs the height with any other hitch.

Lossen the bolt, hitch up, then hand tighten the bolt, now back off a half turn. Take a 3/4 wrench and tighten the locking nut, should have little to no slop in the jaw. If having a hard time disconnecting lossen the 3/4 nut so there is enough play to slide the bar out and open the throat and drive the truck away. Over time you will get it adjusted just right. I have the 18k auto slider.

It's a good informative site but for some reason they don't have any info on hijacker or demco products.
