Basic Instructions on Operation (detailed instructions are supplied with every hitch)
1. The front hook on the hitch engages the front dummy pin on the work tool.
2. The rear, spring loaded ‘swinging’ hook is moved using a bar which fits into a socket on the
hook. As the bar is pulled down, the spring is compressed or deformed as the hook moves. The
rear hook then engages the work tool’s rear dummy pin, the bar is released and the hook clamps
onto the pin.
3. A safety pin must then be inserted into the hitch behind the rear spring loaded hook. This safety
pin ensures that the hitch does not open during normal work tool use. It allows the hitch to be
DO NOT USE THE SPRING TYPE QUICK HITCH WITHOUT THE SAFETY PIN.
4. To remove the work tool from the hitch, the safety pin must first be removed. The work tool can
then be released using the bar as in (2) above. Remember to replace the safety pin in the hitch
once the new work tool has been picked up, or if no further work tools are to be used on the hitch.
