  • Recommended for vehicles that measure more than 23" from the ground to the top of the receiver opening when vehicle is level
  • Ball diameters: 2" and 2-5/16"
  • Pin diameter of each pin hole: 3/4"
  • Measurement from center of hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the vertical upright: 3-3/4"
  • Width of vertical upright: 2-3/4"

  • 1-Year limited warranty


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.

Not only does the trailer hitch work great but e trailer has some of the best customer service I have ever received while ordering stuff online. They send you numerous confirmation emails letting you know when the product is sent and the lady even pumped me to priority cause she could for no charge. Good to know there's companies that still care about customer service. I would definitely recommend e trailer! 125667

Due to so unpleasantness with my homeowners association, my 21' bow-rider is now in my 22' deep garage. It's a pretty tight fit. Also, I have to drop the bow enough to clear a 7' high garage door. It's a cinch with this hitch. I tow with the lock pin in the 5th. hole and drop down to the 3rd. hole to clear the door. Also, the short trailer increased the hitch load. This product is rated for 1000#. 160337

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

Review from a similar Andersen EZ Hitch in Ball Mounts


Thank you all, Katie D., Jena D., Julie MH., as well as Everyone else at E-Trailer who helped me to identify, locate, order, recieve all the towing and hitch related items. Makes my life, towing, much more simple. I had for quite awhile been looking for a short rise and drop hitch sleeve with a 2” ball and 1 7/8” ball combination. Having contacted E-Trailer directly with my specific request, shortly thereafter, you came up with #AM3295 - EZ Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount, with a 4” Rise/Drop, with a 2” and 1 7/8” ball combo by Anderson. PERFECT! With the locking pins to match, same key, #AM3493, also by Anderson, I have on my 2013 Tundra at all times, everything I need or could use. Nothing to go missing, search for, take on and off. From 6 or more items down to just 2 locked in place. I am also most grateful for all the time and effort it took to get the extra set of keys. P.S., the red lines on lock pins, fingernail polish, as a visual LOCKED identifier. Thank you, Michael S. 176430

Review from a similar Andersen EZ Hitch in Ball Mounts


Now that I have had this for awhile and been able tow quiet a bit with it I wish that i would have gotten a different one. It is easy to adjust and convenient. My problem is the general slack, play, wiggle room in the product. The receiver square tube does not fit snuggly into the 2" hitch and leaves plenty of room for movement up and down. There is slight play on the adjustable aluminum ball connecting to the black mount, which i expected some due to this being a single pin style as opposed to dual pin like more expensive models, but the most play in this connection is side to side. When towing a heavy load down a wavy road, you can get some serious jerks and feel the rigidity of the hitch bouncing up and down in the receiver. When towing a light empty trailer on a bouncy road it is noisy from the hitch bouncing around in the receiver and light jerks felt in the truck. I have not used the higher end aluminum style and other dual pin set ups but i would imagine their fits are much snugger and wish i had opted for one of those. I am debating just switching back to carrying around multiple hitches. 95365

Review from a similar Andersen EZ Hitch in Ball Mounts


Our newest company truck is a Dodge Ram 2500 diesel 4x4. With more than six trailers to tow, we needed a lot of vertical adustment and a very stout ball mount to take advantage of the truck's towing capacity. This mount offers the largest range of vertical adjustment I could find while still providing an impressive 10,000 and 14,000 lb capacity respectively for the 2" and 2-5/16" balls. Great fit, finish and construction. We hauled our first trailer load of product back from one of our manufacturers within hours of recieveing the mount this morning. Very happy with this product. 167744

Review from a similar Andersen EZ Hitch in Ball Mounts


I was searching trailer hitches, this one suited my needs, and etrailer had the best deal. This is one really heavy-duty hitch which actually exceeds my needs, and I wouldn’t be afraid to haul anything with it. After ordering I wanted to add something, but it was evening, so I sent etrailer an email, and got a phone call the next day. They were very helpful and took care of me. Shipping was also quick. I would highly recommend this product and etrailer. 61060

I purchased a new trailer. It has a 2in ball that didn't match my other 2 5/16 ball trailer. This new trailer was also set up 4in lower. This hitch was my answer. It's heavy duty rated for my larger trailer and it easily changes ball sizes as well as height adjustment. All in one hitch! 33116

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Parts Needed to Move Trailer leaf Springs to Top of Axle on a Zinger ZT19RD Travel Trailer
  • To lift your trailer leaf springs from the bottom of your axle to the top of your axle to provide lift for the suspension you will need 4 new spring seats, 8 u-bolts, 16 nuts and 4 U-Bolt plates, see links. This is assuming that your trailer suspension is in good condition otherwise. The diameter of your trailer axles will determine the size of these parts that you will need to order.

  • Can Trailer Height be Raised by Changing the Suspension
  • If the trailer leaf springs are currently mounted on the bottom of your axle, moving them to the top of the axle will lift the suspension. To do so you will need 4 new spring seats, 8 u-bolts, 16 nuts and 4 U-Bolt plates per axle. The diameter of your trailer axles will determine the size of the parts you will need to order.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Locking Pin Recommendation for the EZ Hitch Adjustable, Steel Ball Mount AM3296
  • As long as the pin diameter matches up on your Adjustable Ball Mount part # AM3296 with the part # C23556 the locks being a bit too long would not matter. Normally we would recommend the part # AM3493, but if the Curt fits it would work as well.

  • Availability of an Adjustable Ball Mount with a 10k Capacity
  • We have a ton of adjustable ball mounts with a 10k capacity, but none of them have the sway control tab like the # 7390 has. I attached a link to a page that has all of them listed. For a very similar one check out the EZ Hitch Adjustable, Steel Ball Mount Kit # AM3296. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.
