Today we are going to show you Draw-Tite Class II Drawbar kit, part number 36071. The ballmount is designed to fit 1-1/4 inch, class II hitch receivers. It utilizes balls with 3/4inch diameter shanks. It is weighted for 3,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 300 pounds tongue weight. Included with the ballmount is a standard 1/2inch pin and clip to secure the drawbar inside the trailer hitch. :27
When used in the position like this we have a of 3/4inches from the top of the shank, to the top of the ball platform. When used in the rise position, we have 2-5/8ths inches of rise from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform. :44
To mount it in the hitch, slide it in the receiver and line up the hitch pin holes. Once the pin holes are aligned, feed the pin through and we will secure it with a clip on the other side. That does it for Draw-Tite Class II Drawbar Kit part number 36071.
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
