    Ball hitch adapter

    Anyone know if there is such an adapter that can convert a ball hitch to the tube hitch receiver so that I can use a hitch mounted bike rack. My explorer has a ball hitch on it but not a typical towing hitch receiver. I figure there's got to be some kind of adapter that can go over the ball mount that gives you a 2" or 1 1/4" square receiver to attach a bike rack

    I used to work for a bike rack manufacturer that had a rack made specifically for that application. It clamped over the ball. Needless to say it is not in production anymore. Just not a good idea. The safety of your bikes and those driving behind you is more important than saving the $200 to get a hitch installed.
