Question Capture Plate

I've been looking to get an air pin box to replace my Lipert 1621 solid pin box and came across several references to capture plates. Anyone know what they are required for by any chance? I have a Curt 20K slider which I've had for 7 years and this is the first I've heard of capture plates. It was referenced when I was looking at Fifth Airborne air pin boxes. Do I need one? Also are all 1621 Liperts considered long or are there different lengths as well? Cheers

Don't know why you would need a special capture plate unless it's an automatic slider...like the Pull-Rite hitch. Is it the Q20 you have?

Thanks, was at the trailer show today and that's basically what they told me as well. Said it was for specific makes. The salesman showed me one on a trailer they had there. Yes I have a Q20. manual slider.

Re: Capture Plate

The king pin plate captures the hitch head so the head turns with the trailer so it can auto slide back

I can take a picture of a capture plate for a SuperGlide Monday.

Honestly, idk. Never dealt with them.

Thanks bud but no need. But then it may help others out. The salesman at the show told me with my Curt manual slider I don't need one. When I was looking at the Fifth Airborne air pin boxes and saw it listed I didn't know what it was which got me thinking. Cheers.

I had the 1621 on my 5er and I replaced it with the trailair pin. AWESOME! I highly suggest you do the same. Make sure that your trailer sits level or slightly nose down or you will have a bucking bronco on your tail like I did. Once I dropped the truck a little to match it pulls nice now! now that I have a gopro I will be taking some video of the pin in action to share with everyone.

The stock pinbox is about 25-35 pounds. the trailair is 200 pounds!

TrailAir Air pin rocks!

I ended up selling the trailer I was looking to put the airpin box on and bought a new toyhauler with the Trailair pinbox on it. Wow what a difference. As soon as it starts chucking it's arrested in about 1 1/2 cycles. What a joy to haul. Here's a pic of the new toy.
