Video Transcript for Hidden Hitch Extra-Long Ball Mount Review

Today we'll be reviewing Hidden Hitch's extra, extra long ball mount with a 2 inch rise or 4 inch drop, rated at 6,000 pounds, part number 80233. This ball mount fits 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers and uses a ball with a 1 inch shank diameter. It measures 10 inches from the center of the hitch pinhole to the closest part of the weld in the ball mount platform. The ball mount is rated up to 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight and up to 600 pounds tongue weight. The extra, extra long shank of the ball mount is designed for vehicles who's hitches are way back behind the bumper. It can also be used for vehicles which have a spare tire mounted onto the car (hood) door, and also for bike carriers that allow you to tow trailers and and carry a bike at the same time.

We'll start with the installation process. With our ball already torqued onto our ball mount, which is sold separately, in the drop position we'll slide the shank of the ball mount into the opening of the hitch, line up our pinholes, and use a pin and clip to secure the ball mount to the vehicle, which is also sold separately. This ball mount can also be used in the rise position to accommodate taller trailers. We'll simply take out the hitch pin and clip, flip it over on the other side, and secure the pin and clip. For today's demonstration, we will be using the ball mount in the drop position, and for today's demonstration we will be using the bike carrier the (Swagwen) XP, part number S64955.

We'll simply slide the ball mount through the bike carrier and secure the ball mount to the vehicle with the pin and clips. We'll now load our bikes and connect our trailer and show you how it looks driving down the road. And that completes today's review of the Hidden Hitch extra, extra long ball mount for 2 inch hitches with a 2 rise or 4 inch drop, rated at 6,000 pounds, part number 80233.

Overall, I have to say that I am satisfied although not particularily impressed. The finish on the ball mount is mediocre ... there are several spots where the paint is chipped off for instance. It was received today and installed today with no use yet the pictures show the areas in question. You can tell by the label installation that someone who really didn't care rushed the operation. It also fit considerably looser than the Reese bar that I removed. I had to apply several turns of duct tape around the tube to make it as snug as the original. As I said, it'll do fine, just not impressed. 93822

I needed a longer ball mount with my spare tire swing. I tried the extension piece to move it out but I didn't feel comfortable with having so much movement back there. found this one and it looks like it will do the trick. plus its a higher rating than the shorter one I have. 59846

The long ball mount fit my project well, maybe a bit longer than I needed. I added (welded) a 6" receiver tube (using 2 pieces of 3/4" square stock as spacers) to the top of the tube in order to carry my bike rack and tow my boat at the same time. The bike rack is a Hollywood Sport Rider 2; Tray Style Bike carrier. Trailer is a B & M Tilt Bed Trailer for small boats on an interchangable ball hitch. 54832

This draw bar is working out great. My spare is 13 inches wide and only 2 inches above my receiver. This bar allows me to connect my trailer with ease. I was using an extender and it required two locks ,it was heavier, and just more trouble to use. Now I am ready to go in minutes. 21835

We needed a new ball mount for our pick-up after we added a rear step. We searched everywhere for an extended ball mount and finally found one at etrailer.com. The service was excellent and the item arrived in a few short days. It was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks. Chief Dave Hollands Pelican Fire & Rescue 8312

Works perfect! I got one of these because the tongue jack on my trailer was hitting the rear-mounted spare tire on my Jeep. Problem solved! I especially like the fact that it has a 6000/600 capacity, unlike the adapter things that all seem to lower the hitch capacity to 3500/350.773

I have a Chevrolet Venture Van and suffered for 2 years not being able to access the gear in the back due to the rear tailgate hitting my boat when opening. After looking locally for a longer ball mount that no one had listed I found it at etrailer.com. Just the right length, a perfect fit, at a good price and to top it off it was delivered the next day. You cann't ask for any better than that.103934

I purchased the 3 bike hitch mount (S64600) and the ball mount (80233). I am very happy with the quality of the items, and the only issue I had was the pins did not align with the holes in the bike hitch mount and had to be forced in. The items are well made of heavy stock and should be adequate for my purpose. 48117

  • Will Using a Longer Ball Mount Give Me Less Tongue Weight Capacity
  • Fortunately, this is a case where any lost tongue weight capacity will be negligible (unless you add a severely long ball mount). But you are correct; adding adapters or extensions can cut your tongue weight capacity by 50 percent in many cases. But the good news is for this application, carrying a towing bike rack, you will not have to worry about losing tongue weight capacity. I recommend Ball Mount, # 80233. It measures 16 inches from center hole to center hole. If you need something long

  • Will Using a Super Extra Long Ball Mount Increase Trailer Tongue Weight at the Hitch, Toyota RAV4
  • It looks like you are using Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75432, on your Toyota RAV4. Since this is a class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver, it can handle the additional torque associated with using a longer ball mount like # 80233. The trailer tongue weight will remain the same. If it is 212 pounds pushing down on the hitch at 8-1/2 inches, it will still be 212 pounds at 16 inches. But there will be some additional torque on the hitch and backing the boat up on the trailer could help w

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Pulling a Pop Up Camper with a 2011 Toyota Rav4 with Rear Spare Tire
  • The standard ball mount that is recommended for the 2011 RAV4 has a 2 inch drop and a 3/4 inch rise and in most cases the # 80232 ball mount will be correct, but this does not mean that it will be the correct ball mount height for towing your trailer. The height of your trailer coupler and the height of the top of the receiver opening on your RAV4, when parked on a fairly level surface with the trailer frame level, will be needed to determine the correct ball mount drop or rise that you will

  • Does Using an Extra Long Ball Mount Reduce the Tongue Weight Capacity of a Trailer Hitch
  • The use of an extension cuts the tongue weight capacity of a hitch down by 50 percent. So for example if the tongue weight capacity of the hitch is 350 pounds, by using an extension it would be only 175 pounds. This is because of the extra length AND because there are more pivot points between the trailer and the hitch receiver. The use of a longer ball mount does not cut the tongue weight capacity down as drastically as an extension. Though it can potentially decrease it some, it would not b

  • Will Super Extra Long Ball Mount 80233 Decrease the Tongue Weight Capacity of a Trailer Hitch
  • No. Because ball mount # 80233 is not an adapter or extension, if used directly in the trailer hitch it will not decrease the tongue weight capacity enough (though it may decrease it only slightly) to be an issue. You will need to make sure that the combined trailer tongue weight, bike rack, and bikes does not exceed the 500 pound tongue weight capacity of the hitch. Also check the vehicle owners manual for its tongue weight rating and if lower go by the lower rating.
