Here you go Pat, basicly a threaded rod and the two black knobs are to tighten it. The bolt you see is where it pivots and the round tube it goes through is welded to the trailer frame. Hope this helps.

Hallet,

Can you tell me the thickness of the box tubing that was made out of? Both the bracket and the both sides of the tounge. Thanks.

trailer

I prefer the slide deal 4x4x3/16 main tube 3 1/2 x 3/16 slide. Ya can slide it back for garage or enclosed trailer clearance & ya get the advantage with it extended for launching especally at c.f.w. I,ll see if i can get rino or hud to post pic,s we have built. Plus ya can pull it out for security. My 2 cents. Andy

I didn't have a swing away. What I did was cut the tongue off, about 14" back from the hitch. I put some square tubing in the hitch end and welded it to that piece. The OD of the incerted piece was the same size as the ID of the tongue. I used a 2' welding 12" inside the tongue. The other side slid into the trailer. I drilled a 1/2" hole through that piece and used a pin and key, just like the reciever on a pick up. Any one can carry a few bolts, swing your tongue back and drive away. Or the tongue has been bump and rips your garage door apart when you open it.
