Energy absorbing hitch cover introduced

Go Ahead - Bump This! Mohr Manufacturing Introduces A Crash Tested, Energy Absorbing, Portable Receiver Hitch Cover And Bumper Shield / Skid Plate.

The two most frequent vehicle accidents are getting hit while parked and the rear end collision.  This crash tested, energy absorbing hitch cover not only covers your ugly receiver hitch, it works as a bumper shield for rear mounted 2” receiver hitches and doubles as a skid plate and bumper shield for front mounted receiver hitches.

Its 12” wide by 6” high only sticks out 4” beyond your receiver hitch (in the full compression mode), crushes 2” when hit, won’t interfere with most vehicles equipped with backup alarms and can be used in the down position (shown) to protect against under-ride on full size pickup trucks or SUVs or flipped around to protect against over-ride on small size SUVs.  
Mohr Bumper Shield
It has a duel compression system so it can be pinned out for maximum protection or pinned in closer (still energy absorbing) for approach angle clearance during off-road use, tight garage spaces or to avoid being detected by backup alarms.  Simply arrange the rubber bumpers / spacers and pin it where you want.   

Because it’s energy absorbing it won’t transfer all the crash energy from a rear end collision directly to the occupants, will keep your receiver hitch from bending when hit from the rear (unlike all other static receiver hitch products – including your ball mount), keeps Braille parallel parkers from wrecking your bumper, reduces whiplash if hit hard enough and has a lifetime crash warranty (like all of our other products) – if it bends or breaks from a rear end collision, at any speed, it will be replaced absolutely FREE.
