Have used this product for a very long time, with excellent results. Lubication is a wonderful thing! I learned the hard way a long time ago when my trailer hitch ball was stuck. Had a hard time freeing up. Never used a lube before and this product is specific to hitch balls. No more problems. The price is the best here at A jar will last many years. 121895

I use this product to lubricate the hitch ball and other parts of the hitch equipment and it works great. It's also white and a little less "messy" than some other grease products. I used a container of it and had trouble finding it locally so I ordered it through e-trailer. It was delivered promptly and their service was excellent. 63627

All items received quickly. All items fit and work actually better than I though they might! The 2-5/16 ball cover is not too tight but stays put. The ball lube is thick and stays put, as well. Hard to find both of these items locally. Thank you etrailer...again! 136564

Good product, I first used it on a new hitch ball that I used to pull a 26' covered car hauler with for 600 miles. When I arrived at my destination I took a rag and cleaned off the hitch ball and found that I couldn't hardly tell that it had been used. 111243

Never have had a problem with the receiver since I've been using this grease. Hard to find locally. One catch on the shipping though the cover had come off but luckily it only gunked up the plastic bag containing other item in box. 126467

I've been using this product for years and it's been keeping my trailer hitch ball in nice shape. I can't seem to find this anymore in my local Walmart, so I'm happy that etrailer carries this grease. 106485

This is a must for towing, and less friction is always good, I use a B&W Tri Ball. It keeps the crome nice on an expensive hitch. then keep it covered with a hitch ball cover and no greasy mess. 115427

  • Coupler on Coleman Pop-Up Trailer is Difficult to Un Hitch on Uneven Terrain
  • I do not have a specific product to recommend, but you might want to check a few things. First, make certain that you are using the correct size ball for the coupler. (Silly, but I had to mention it!) Secondly, make sure that the coupler is in good repair and that the latching mechanism is properly adjusted and lubricated. If the latching mechanism on the coupler is a bit too tight, it could cause the problem you are describing. Finally, try applying a thin coat of grease on the...

  • Is it Necessary to Grease the Hitch Balls on Diversi-Tech Multi-Ball Mount DTSTBM6600-3S
  • It is always a good idea to use a little hitch ball grease like # 58117 on top of the ball before towing, as it helps extend the life of the ball and the closing mechanism on the trailer coupler. The lubrication allows grit to slide around more, instead of just grinding directly into the metal. If you are referring to lubricating the point where the ball attaches to the ball mount, then this would not be necessary according to Diversi-Tech, because both parts are stainless steel and...

  • Trailer Will Not Uncouple from Ball When Parked on an Incline
  • Usually if you can move the tow vehicle and trailer to level ground, you can uncouple. However, sometimes you have to be on less than level ground. If the coupler will not come off of the ball in this situation, you can use the trailer jack to separate the coupler from the ball. What is happening is the pressure from being on an incline is putting enough force on the ball to make uncoupling very difficult. What you can do to help prevent this in the future is to make sure to properly...

  • Is the Master Lock Stainless Steel Standard Hitch Ball # 3458DAT Corrosion Resistant
  • Stainless steel is naturally corrosion resistant so you should not experience rusting like you might with chrome or a raw steel finish. You can also use ball grease, # 58117, to assist in repelling moisture.

  • Will Rust on Trailer Ball Affect Its Performance
  • The small amount of surface rust on your ball will not affect its future performance. If the ball had been exposed to the elements for many months or years and the corrosion was more severe, I would be reluctant to use it. Since the rust is minor, you can use it with no worries. I would recommend keeping a light coating of grease like part # 58117 on the ball. This will prevent further corrosion, and will also quiet the connection to a degree. The Curt # C40041 has a raw, machined...

  • What Would Cause the Top of a Trailer Hitch Ball to Wear Excessively After 300 Miles
  • If the ball is smaller than what the coupler requires then the coupler would be able to move around quite a bit and wear down the ball. If the ball is the right size then excessive tongue weight could be a factor. The trailer tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent of he gross trailer weight. The ball you use will need to be rated higher than the gross trailer weight. You can also lubricate the ball so that there is less friction. Some ball lube such as # 58117 would work well...

  • Trailer Coupler is Stuck on Hitch Ball and Wont Release
  • First, release the mechanism that holds the coupler onto the ball. It may be a lever or a knob that has to be turned. Some require a dual action move where you would push back or forward on the lever while lifting up on it. If you have done this and it seems to be stuck then it is most likely a binding issue. You can try moving the tow vehicle and trailer forward or backward to release the tension between the ball and coupler. Binding can occur if the trailer and tow vehicle are not...

  • How to Safely Uncouple a Trailer on an Incline
  • Whenever a tow vehicle and trailer are on an incline there will be pressure applied to the hitch ball and coupler. This will make it difficult to uncouple the trailer from the hitch ball. A trailer jack and/or hitch ball lubricant such as # 58117 can sometimes help. The tow vehicle and trailer should always be on a level surface when coupling or uncoupling, and wheel chocks should always be used to ensure the safety of those around the trailer and the trailer itself. We offer a number...

  • Master Lock 2 Inch Ball Coupler Will Not Fit Over 2 Inch Ball
  • You should not have to remove the bottom part of the coupler to attach the coupler to the ball so something seems to be amiss. Double check the top of the coupler to make sure it is designed for a 2 inch ball and not a 1-7/8 inch ball. If fine-tuning the bolt does not fix the issue there could be something machined wrong with the coupler and it will need to be replaced. You can also try lubricating the latching mechanism and the ball using ball grease # 58117. Make sure it is clean first...

  • Trailer Coupler Gets Stuck on the Trailer Hitch Ball
  • When a coupler gets stuck on the ball it can be because of several factors. First, if there is tension between the truck and trailer then it can cause the coupler to bind and get stuck on the ball. You can try moving slightly forward or backward to relieve the tension. If that does not release the tension enough you can also use the trailer jack to lift both the truck and trailer a little to relieve the tension which will make it easier to unlatch from around the ball. You may also...
