Ozhitch Conversion Kit
Tired of battling with your hitch? Why not convert it with a conversion kit to suit AT35, Treg, and Trigg?… Including over-rides?
Do a Conversion to OzHitch with a quick change over of the “Uni Joint Bolt” and save your self a lot of future frustration. Bolt on the Receiver Cradle and you are ready to connect up with the supplied Connecting Pin.
The distance between the two forks on the OzHitch is 75-76mm (Internal Measurements)
Please be aware that the replacement bolt (supplied with kit) to fit the OzHitch Conversion Kit is 20mm in diameter and a little bigger than some other hitch types (usually 19mm) and you may be required to drill out the fork on your hitch to suit the thicker bolt.
Conversion Kit for AT35, Treg, and Trigg.
Will suit Treg copies fine, however the fork width is wider (around 85mm) and will require you to get some spacers, not supplied in kit.

How to do it:
- Grind of the existing welds to a flat surface on top and bottom of the fork
- On the Treg the centre of the fork is usually the centre of the pin holding the poly block or universal joint in place. So measure to the centre usually 25mm in from the side and then also in from the front. This should be the centre of the pin.
- Centre pop this point and then drill a pilot hole around 8mm deep.
- Then swap to the 20mm drill bit and drill down until the edge of the 20mm drill has cut into the pin position around 1mm. This should be enough to break through the weld penetration from the pin to the fork.
- Do the same steps on the other side.
- The pin should now be free to hit out with a punch and hammer.
- If you find the pin won’t come out drill a little deeper to see if you can crack the weld.
- If you hit the pin hard at this stage you will normally see a crack around the pit to fork weld appear.
- If you are not spot on with your drilling point then the crack caused by hitting it hard would usually then give a close indication of how far off you were on the drill point.
- Once the pin is out continue to drill out the rest of the fork. Best to drill through both from one side this assures that the hole you are drilling is straight
- Assemble the new OzHitch parts into the old hitch.
