Today we are going to show you part number 80404 from Hidden Hitch. What we have here is a reversible ball mount. Now we will go ahead and install it in our 2 inch receiver hitch. In this position here we have it in a 2 inch lock and a 2 inch ball. We have a 3/4 inch rise with a 1-7/8 ball on top. Couple other quick notes on this is that the weight capacity is as follows. The inch and 7/8 ball is rated for 2000 pounds. The 2 inch ball is rated for a 6000 pound trailer. There you have it for part number 80404 from Hidden Hitch.
Today we are going to talk about ball mounts: what they are for, and what they can do for you. As you can see here, we have a variety of different types. And we are going to start off with the most basic type and go all the way up to the most advanced ones with the most adjustability to them. First, we will start off with a typical ball mount. And this configuration here is for a 2-inch receiver and also is a drop version. Basically, it is going to be 4 inches. Also, some models will have a gusset on the bottom, here, to give them a little bit added strength. Some of the typical straight ones will not have this, of course. And, depending on the materials it is made of, some will have the gusset and some will not. One other thing about ball mounts is, we have to talk about rise and drop. Basically, how they measure that is from the top of the shank down to the bottom of the plate here, that is considered the drop. And the rise position is considered this way - from the top of the shank again - well, to the top of the hitch - to the top of this plate here. And that gives you your rise measurement. So, in this case, we actually have from here to here a 4-inch drop, and then from here to here we have approximately about a 2-3/4 inch rise. And those rules apply to any ball mount out there. 1:04
