Nato Hitch Spreader plate


Recommended Posts

I have a friend who can make me a couple of spreader plates for my newly aquired Nato Hitch.

Does anyone here have a diagram, drawing or a plan showing the required dimensions of the plates and location/diameter of the holes.

(I'm putting a plate on both the front and rear of the crossmember)

I'm knowhere near my Landie at the moment co can't get to measure it up :(

Any help appreciated

The plate is about 5 or 6mm thick IIRC. not sure about the external dimension, but it's only got to fit in the gap behind the crossmember.

the holes for the hitch bolts are:

13/4" x 33/8" (thats 44.5mm x 85.72mm)

diameter is 9/16" (14.27mm)

these are taken from the dixon bate spec sheet for the hitch.
