Every SuperGlide Hitch Needs a Capture Plate to Function
SO LETS FIND THE RIGHT PLATE FOR YOUR TRAILER’S KING PIN BOX...
Capture Plates are a required component of the SuperGlide hitch system. When the trailer is hooked up to the hitch, the Capture Plate’s wedge isolates the king pin from turning in the fifth wheel plate, causing the Cam Assembly to activate and allowing the SuperGlide to move as turns are being made. Most applications slip over the king pin and are held in place by a set screw. Follow the instructions below to determine your correct Capture Plate.
1) Find the manufacturer’s name and model number located on your pin box.
2) Then find the Quick Connect part number that corresponds to that information.
3) To ensure correct fit, make the necessary A, B and C measurements:
A: Measure the king pin plate from side-to-side. This is the most important measurement. Be sure that this measurement is no more than 1/16” less than the measurement listed in the column below.
B : Measure from the leading edge of the king pin to the leading edge of the king pin plate.
C : Measure from the rear edge to the leading edge of the king pin plate.
