Today were going to review part number 902B. This is the Convert-A-Ball interchangeable ball set; contains three different hitch ball sizes and a shank. The shank is a solid stainless steel one-inch diameter shank; comes with a three different size hitch ball the 2 5/16, the two-inch and the 1 7/8 and they all are stamped on the top with the size of the hitch ball. This is a nice item to have if youre towing different size trailer couplers. Youd be able to change out your hitch ball size for another ball size very easy. You just pop out the integrated pin that is on the hitch ball and then replace with any size hitch ball unto the shank.
Includes the one shank, the three hitch balls and well include the 1 inch nut that uses the 1 inch wrench to attach the shank to the ball mount and the washers included. I would go on there and you need to tighten it down to the ball mount. It also comes with a cotter key that will slide through the hole and we keep the nut on the shank. This does stand up to the weather and moisture with the quality and durability of pure stainless steel. This part is made in the USA and, again, I want to show you this shank will fit ball mounts with a one inch diameter hole.
Theres the diameter, its one inch; give you the shank length which will be 2 inches.The towing capacity on these shank and the hitch balls is 10,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. This part does come with a two-year limited warranty and just to give you an idea of how this would attach to the shank with the shank mounted unto your ball mount. You will find the side of the pin that has the dimple in it and you could just actually could push it out with your finger and do it that way sometimes with your finger or it might not push out enough, you can use a pin to do it but this integrated pin will stay in there. And the nice thing on these pins because if youll notice theres a rubber O ring on each end of the pin; on this end and on this end. So when this is installed and pushed in, it will actually seal both sides of the hole so no dirt or foreign material wil get in to here and cause any problems.
So basically you push the end with the dimple in it, take your shank where the hole is, line it up with the pin, just push through all the way until its flush and boom, you have a hitch ball of 2 5/16 in size. Now if you need to switch it out, just take the two-inch, find the side with the dimple, push it, pull it all the way, line it up again with the holes all the way until its flush and you have another size on there. And again, you can do it with the smaller, push it open line it up, all the way and in a few seconds youll change out all three different hitch ball sizes. Again, this part comes with a two-year limited warranty and that should do it for part number 902B. .

The kind of balls you need... A little pricey maybe... But then again they are stainless. I feel it's worth it. Buy them! Buy the case to put 'em in and store it behind the seat of your truck. If there is ever a chance that you will use them it is cheaper this way than any other. I have towed trailers that require all 3 of these sizes, and use 2 sizes on a regular basis. Just came back from a 200 mile bumpy dirt road trip with 3,000lbs and my 2" ball is still shiny new. I also highly recommend the "cushioned" ball mount to go with it. I have used the $250 aluminum rapid hitch setup and now I won't use it again. This setup is the way to go. No sloppy jerky movements and aluminum that chips and dents and needs to be polished. Great Product, Great Price, Great Experience, Great etrailer!!! 5371

Exactly what I wanted. Stainless is the way to go. I will say I have had this type ball before. (steel) the rubber o ring on the cross pin appears to be the only thing holding the pin in when not being used to tow a trailer. After 7 years the o ring rotted out and the ball bounced off. Lesson: when not in use keep it out of the elements and this thing will last forever!! Awesome product! E trailer has the best customer service around. Ordered online and had this in hand in 4 days! And that was choosing the cheapest shipping option possible! Thank you E Trailer!! David 132244
I have these on my vehicles, and bought this one as a Christmas gift. It's the only way to go. It takes seconds to change balls, and they work flawlessly- as long as you take the ball off the stud each time you use it. My first set, chrome plated, froze in place after a month in a Minnesota winter. I had to throw it away. If you can afford it, get the stainless steel. But even it will freeze up if you don't remove the ball after using it. Removing the ball or the receiver is a small price to pay for versatility of the system. 28669
Always prepared The 3-ball convert-a-ball system and cushioned ballmount was the first first and so far only ballmount and ball set I've purchased. I normally only use the 2-5/16" ball but it's nice to know the others are there when I need them. I went to go pick up a trailer from a friend once. He told me it had a 2" hitch but it was really 1-7/8". I had brought the complete kit just in case. He was amazed at how fast and easy it was to change ball sizes. With the 10k rating it will easily handle anything I'll ever tow. 1576

I was looking for the Convert-A-Ball trailer hitch that was made in America. This web site came up and I liked what I saw. It was easy to use. I ordered on Tuesday the week of Christmas thinking I wouldn't get it until after Christmas. However, I recieved the package 2 days later! WOW! My husband and I were very impressed. Good quality, fast service and good customer service. We will recommend this company to our friends! 28883

Excellent product. My previous convert-a ball system was chrome plated but I much prefer the stainless . The chrome plating wears off after a few moths of use and you are left with a rusty hitch ball . The convert-a ball system is the ONLY way to go if you have multiple trailers with different hitch ball sizes. Great price and extraordinarily quick shipping from the good folks at etrailer. 128015

The Ball Mount and Convert-A-Ball are of top notch quality. I applied both on my receiver and they fit perfectly. The lock for the mount is state of the art. Furthermore I received emails when the item was picked, shipped and given a due date and I received it right on time.This company is on top of there game and I will be doing business with them in the future. 36445

EXCELLENT i own four trucks and they ALL have this style ball on them i for lack of a better word love this product,im always the guy who gets stuck towing the toys and not one friend has got the right size or type of ball they need for there own trailers but i always come prepared its knowing you never have to make a second trip that gives comfort 5520
These are very nicely made and well machined. I like the versatility this set provides for towing multiple trailers. I have a travel trailer that uses the 2 5/16 ball and a utility trailer that uses a 2" ball. I no longer need multiple ball mounts. Just swap the ball & go. 85721
The order arrived complete as expected. The hitch looks of high guality and hopefully will resist rust as it should being stainless steel. Only time will tell for sure. The storage box is a "very nice to have" item to keep the loose ball sizes stored out of the way. 37530

Excellent product. Well worth the price for the convenience of switching out ball size without having to have two large wrenches. I have multiple trailers with different size couplers. To change out ball size takes less than 30 seconds. I bought 3 for each vehicle! 20392

Just received the balls yesterday. Installed the spindle on my hitch fit like a glove. Should be the easiest transition between trailers that I ever had in the past. Now I have (2) extra receivers that I have to store or give away :) Thank you, 143439
Everything is precisely machined, all parts interchange easily and snugly. Nice finish on the stainless steel. Looking forward to having no rust. Having alternative size balls will be a plus for the occassional need to haul a different trailer. 96332
USA MADE PRODUCT! Quality throughout. I kinda wish the nut, split washer and cotter pin were also stainless. (They're not... they're all zinc coated.) I like the idea of the o-rings on the locking pins. Keeps the crap out. I'm happy. 48783
by: Robert Pair11/22/2013
While I was very impressed with the quality of the stainless on the trailer shank and the ball tops, the 1" hex nut and lock washer were a cheap zinc plated finish. Very disappointing! 108163
