brompton trailer hitch

I notice that you park the bike bending the Brompton over with the elastomer hitch. The thing is that I got my city trailer carry freedom with an old hitch that not allow me to bend the bike without unhook the hitch, could you magnify the photo with this detail or explain how this red rubber thing is allowing you to bend the brompton without unhook the trailer. Thanks

Re: brompton trailer hitch

Basically, the hook (attached to the rear wheel's axle) is slightly loose, so it can turn around. It won't spin around by itself, but folding the bike gives enough force to rotate it, i.e. the hook actually stays still while the wheel rotates in the opposite direction.
