Tow up to 10,000 lbs with the safety and convenience of the adjustable 8" drop and 8" rise on the EZ Hitch ball mount system. Turn the ball mount over to select a drop or rise. After the ball mount has been installed on your vehicle, just pull the included pin to adjust the combo ball up or down or to flip the combo ball between the 2" or 2-5/16" hitch ball as needed. Replace the pin, and you're ready to tow. The ball mount fits 2" square trailer hitches and is a great solution for those who tow several different trailers.


Keeping your trailer level with your tow vehicle makes it easier and safer to tow. If your trailer is more than 2" nose up, it will sway during towing - increasing tire wear and making your ride less comfortable. Lots of sway makes it harder to drive your vehicle. If the trailer is more than 2" nose down, the load may put too much weight on the hitch and tow vehicle, exceeding the weight limit for both. This puts too much stress on the connection between your trailer and hitch and doesn't leave enough weight on your front wheels, affecting your ability to steer and brake properly. An adjustable ball mount system makes it easy to keep whatever you tow as level as possible.

The last hitch I'll need to buy? Had another brand/design made up of several tube segments develop a crack. Caught it before it came apart. This design doesn't have that problem and has all the height adjustment I should ever need.81789

Looks just like what I need; haven't gotten to use it yet. This will replace having to haul four different ball mounts around for my different trailers/tow bars. Site was great with photos aand detailed specifications - especially measurements. Would have been nice to have been able to get the locking 5/8" pin for the ball (manufacturer doesn't make it any more).75432

Expert Answers about EZ Hitch Adjustable, Steel Ball Mount Kit w/ 2 Hitch Balls - 8" Drop or Rise - 10,000 lbs - AM3296                                            Do you have a question about this Ball Mounts?


  • Availability of 1-7/8 Inch Trailer Ball For EZ Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount Part # AM3296
  • I have spoken with one of my contacts with Andersen Manufacturing who tells me that a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball is not available for the EZ Hitch Adjustable Steel Ball Mount. I understand that they currently have no plans to offer one. Your best bet would be to go with the EZ Hitch you were looking at, part # AM3296. For your smaller trailer that uses the 1-7/8 inch ball, assuming that you are needing a maximum of an 8 inch drop I would suggest an adjustable ball mount like part # 80414 and a 1

  • Measurement of Center of Hitch Pin Hole to Center of Ball on EZ Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount # AM3296
  • On the EZ Hitch Adjustable, Steel Ball Mount Kit, part # AM3296, the measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball is 9-3/4 inches. I am including a picture that will show the measurement. I also recommend the Dead Bolt Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2 Inch Trailer Hitches, part # 7683.

  • On the EZ Hitch Adjustable, Steel Ball Mount Kit, part # AM3296, the measurement from the center of the ball mount hole to the closest edge of the vertical upright is 3-3/4 inches. The width of the vertical upright is 2-3/4 inches. The distance from the closest edge of the 2-5/16 inch ball to the vertical upright is 1-7/8 inches. I am including a picture that will include the measurements listed above.

  • Why Does the EZ Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount Rattle While Driving
  • The hitch balls on the EZ Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount, # AM3296, will rattle somewhat in the ball mount when not towing. The rattle is due to the shank of the hitch ball being narrower than the mounting slot on the shank of the ball mount. While towing the rattle will be minimal because the weight on the hitch ball will push the hitch ball shank into the slot on the ball mount. If the rattle you are experiencing is at your trailer hitch receiver, then that can be easily remedied with an anti-

  • Is there a Lock for the Andersen EZ Hitch Adjustable, Steel Ball Mount Kit
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled adjustable ball mount # AM3296 to measure the diameter of the pin that holds the ball portion on the shank. It is a 3/4 diameter pin and there are no locks this size. But I do have an option for you. You could use a padlock in place of the clip on the end of the pin. The hole diameter for the clip is 0.21 inches so a shackle diameter of 3/16 inches would work.

  • Compatiblility of EZ Hitch Adjustable Steel Ball Mount with 2003 Hummer H2
  • The EZ Hitch Adjustable Steel Ball Mount Kit, part # AM3296 will work just fine with a 2x2 inch Class III receiver on your Hummer H2. The Ball Mount has a 8000 lb capacity when used with the 2 inch ball, or 10,000 lbs when used with the 2-5/16 ball, although your maximum capacity will be limited by the manufacturers stated towing capacity.
