Got my new brackets today... I took some pictures to show the difference between the heavy duty brackets and the lighter duty brackets (this is my bent bracket). I will be installing the new ones and bolting to the frame before my next trip.

TexasA&M,

Looks the same #58392 HD bracket I have had for years but they added the two wing gussets, everything else looks the same.

I called for the new heavy duty brackets last week. They asked for my name, mailing adress, type of TT and how many snap up brackets had bent on me. Yesterday I received one in the mail and was told as soon as they have more produced they would send me another one . There was no charge for the bracket or shipping and they did not want the bent brackets returned to them.

Wink Fixed by BENT snap up brackets for good.

I just received the Reese heavy duty brackets today and I'm NOT impressed with them, in fact, I'm returning them because I have a much better fix and I did it for less than $3. I got two pieces of 3/8 x 5 3/4 x 8" steel plate and bolted them on running the bolts through the snap up bracket holes. I used 3/8 by 3 1/2" bolts with flat and lock washers with self-locking nuts. I also drilled a 5/8" diameter hole in the plate so the locking bolt of the bracket goes through it and contacts the frame. These can't come off!!! See pictures attached. I'm feeling much better about leaving on my trip to Ocean City Maryland tomorrow!! Now I'm off to get my $140 back for the heavy duty ones. Hope this can help someone else out there.

Has anyone lost or broke the pin that holds the snap up in place after setting the chain?
I either broke or lost mine going up an incline last weekend. Snap up came loose, spring bar hit the road. I pull a Jayco 199 with a Gmc 1500. Granted I don"t need the WDH but I had to have one with my old truck (Chevy Colorado) and its the only one I have. Does ride better tho. My dealer wanted $7.00 apiece for the pin which to me is too much so I made about three or four out of 3/16 rod stock.

I bought extra pins from a RV dealership for less than $1.00 a piece.

Before I found out about the heavier snap up brackets I called Reese and tey sent me a set of brackets that bolt to the frame and do not have the hinged portion . It looks like a short hook on a plate and you bolt it to the TT frame.
