#4500 OE Puck Series 24K SuperGlide for 2020-2024 GM trucks
The #4500 OE Puck Series Heavy Duty SuperGlide is designed specifically for 2020 and newer GM trucks with factory pucks. Accurately tested to exacting SAE J2638 standards, this fifth wheel hitch tows a gross trailer weight of 24K and easily out-performs other foreign-made hitches of the same class. With even beefier components to accommodate heavier loads than the other OE Puck SuperGlides, the 14" of travel quickly and easily moves your trailer away from your cab during turns and backing up with ease!
This direct attachment hitch mounts directly to your truck's OE puck mounting points...NO ADAPTER RAILS NEEDED! Not sure what mounting system you already have or need?

SuperGlide is the only real solution to safely and efficiently regain that 90º turning capability. It's fully automatic, so there's no getting in and out of your truck to throw levers before and after turns like you have to do with other manual slide hitches. SuperGlide quickly moves your trailer away from your truck cab without you having to do a thing! No anticipation...just get in and drive!
The OE Mounting Post Assemblies are completely removable for easy removal/installation of the hitch. Simply unpin handles, rotate 1/4 turn outward and lift the hitch out of the bed. NO TOOLS NEEDED! Premium hardware, like the use of castle nuts, allow for finer adjustments of the OE puck handles for ease of installation and fit! This SuperGlide is adjustable front-to-back to center it over the axle. See how OE Puck hitches work here!
A Capture Plate is a required component of the SuperGlide fifth wheel towing system. This plate is attached to your trailer's skid plate. When you're hooked up into your SuperGlide hitch and ready to tow, it isolates the rotation of your trailer's king pin in the hitch. Movement and rotation is then transferred to the automatic cam action of your SuperGlide hitch, moving it away from the cab along its rails to prevent the trailer from contacting the cab of your truck! Most applications slip over the king pin and are held in place by a set screw; quick install and removal for your convenience. Visit the Quick Connect Capture Plate Fit Chart to find which is needed for your trailer/hitch combination.

The SuperGlide is specifically designed for short bed trucks to provide additional clearance between the truck’s cab and the leading edge of the trailer during turns. SuperGlide is designed to allow your truck to turn 90 degrees to your trailer, however, other variables do come into play, such as variables like trailer width, squared off or rounded corners, and the location of the potential point of trailer-to-cab contact.
Additional limitations may also exist when using trailers wider than 96” and the correct truck/trailer combination must be considered. Always check with your dealer prior to purchase or contact PullRite Customer Service for information on potential clearance issues. NOTE: The #2300 ISR Series SuperGlide and #2315 OE Puck Series SuperGlide offers additional sliding travel and should be considered when towing trailers greater than 96” wide.
Limitations / Notes:
The SuperGlide hitch for short box trucks is optimally designed for trailers with a King Pin located even with, or ahead of the leading edge of the trailer (measured at the corners of the trailer). There are many variables that can influence the ability to make a full 90° turn; including the trailer width, trailer profile, radius corners & truck cab profile. In many cases, even if the king pin is located under the trailer, behind the leading edge of the trailer, the SuperGlide may allow 90° turns - but NOT IN EVERY CASE.
If your trailer king pin is behind the trailers leading edge, we recommend you download the following document to help you determine proper clearance. If you need additional help, please don't hesitate to contact our Customer Service Department by email or call (800) 443-2307.
A towing system includes each vehicle and component involved in towing. Each item in your towing system has a capacity or weight rating. You trailer has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, or GVWR. Your truck has a tow capacity, payload capacity, and possibly more. In addition, your fifth wheel hitch has a weight rating. This weight rating must be at, or above, the GVWR of your trailer for you to tow safely. In addition, if your truck can tow larger loads (has a larger capacity) than the rating of your hitch, your system is only safe to tow loads at the lower rating, that of the hitch.
Your mounting kit also has a weight rating, just like your fifth wheel hitch. Many times, these rating are designed to match. But, this is not always the case. Your mounting kit may be higher rated then your fifth wheel hitch, but it also could be lower depending on the components involved. The lowest rating of any one component in the system becomes the rating of the entire system. If your mounting kit is rated to 18,000 lbs., and your hitch is rated at 24,000 lbs., the weight rating of the entire system will not be above 18,000 lbs. Other components in the system could lower the actual system rating further.
It is the end users responsibility to ensure a safe towing experience. To this end, it is your responsibility to ensure that the truck, trailer, hitching components, and all other items involved are rated or have a capacity sufficient for the loads involved.
Your SuperGlide hitch can only pull trailers equipped with the SuperGlide Capture Plate. If you hook up to a trailer that does not have a Capture Plate installed, there is no control to keep the hitch in the forward towing position and the weight of the trailer will cause the head to turn and slam or “free fall” to the rear of the hitch’s angled cam slot, which may cause damage to the hitch, truck, and the king pin. We do not recommend locking the hitch in any way to keep it in the forward position.
The Capture Plate will need to be removed from the pin box before a standard fifth wheel hitch can tow your trailer. If the plate is not removed, the king pin will not rotate in the hitch and damage will result to the Capture Plate and conventional hitch. Part #3336 is a conversion adapter (see pg. i of the Owners Manual) that will allow a standard fifth wheel hitch to tow your trailer with the Capture Plate installed. The adapter is used in conjunction with your Fifth Wheel Plate, or “head” of the SuperGlide.
The industry standard base rails can be installed over a spray-in bed liner. All other liners will require an opening to be cut through the liner, to allow the base rails to install against the metal of the bed.
Yes, you can use the trailer jacks to lift the hitch out of the truck. The hitch should not however be left hanging from the king pin. Once you have the hitch lifted out of the truck you should have a stand available to lower the hitch onto for storage.
Hooking up can only be accomplished when the truck and trailer are aligned within 10º of each other. See “Hitching” on page 16 for more information on hooking up. Unhooking by pulling the release handle can only be accomplished when the truck and trailer are aligned within 10º of each other. In emergency situations you can pull the clevis pins and clips that attach the Fifth Wheel Plate or “head” assembly to the Rocker Arm, lower your landing gear and raise the trailer up until the Fifth Wheel Plate is free from the Rocker Arm. Pull forward from under the parked trailer. At that point you can pull the Release Handle, remove the head from the king pin and reattach it to your hitch with the clevis pins and clips.
The king pin box and SuperGlide plate or “head” move together and since there is no friction, there is no need for any grease or a lube plate. Use of a Teflon disc or lube plate would cause the king pin to be too short and problems hooking up will occur.
