Video Transcript for Review of Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Parts - Shank for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch - EQ94FR

Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and we're going to be taking a look at the equalizer weight distribution shank. This is going to be that attachment point between your towing vehicle and the head assembly and the rest of your weight distribution system for your trailer. That's of course important to help level out and distribute the weight more evenly for your truck and trailer so you're not loading down your truck and everything is spread out so you don't have anything really weighing down that hitch ball attachment.So this is going to fit into a two and a half inch by two and a half inch hitch. So that's one requirement that you will have to have is a two and a half inch hitch, a two and a half by two and a half inch hitch receiver to fit this guy into. It can be used in both the drop and rise position and I'll give you some more numbers in a minute on what the drop and rise measurements are. The nice thing about this is that it is a solid steel construction.

It's been dipped, so it's going to have some corrosion resistance to rust and should be looking pretty nice for many years.That dipped coating can flake off, especially if this happens to hit the ground or get knocked around a bit. So that's one thing to keep in mind. It's not the most impervious coating that I've seen out there, but it should do a pretty good job of keeping it protected for a while. As far as the size of this, it is going to give you a max drop of nine inches. That's measuring from the inside top edge of the hitch receiver tube, to the top of the ball platform.

So it doesn't actually go to the adjustment holes here, but that's going to, again, going to be a total of nine inches for our maximum drop. If we we're to flip this over into the rise position, we would get a total rise of 13 inches. And again, that's going to be from the inside top edge of your receiver to the ball platform.The maximum tongue weight that this can handle is 1600 pounds. The max gross towing weight is 16,000 pounds. Of course, you do want to check the owner's manual in your vehicle, make sure that it's up to towing that amount of weight.

You also want to look at your hitch and make sure that it is up to towing that amount of weight. And there are usually different specs for using a weight distribution system. So, if your hitch is rated for weight distribution, it should be a little bit higher than the others, but you definitely want to check all of those weight ratings to make sure that you go off of the lowest number between any of them because that's really going to be the safest way to go. You're really only as strong as your weakest link, so that's kind of the way to think about it.As far as the overall length of our shank here, is about 12 inches long. So from front to back.

From top to bottom, it's about 14 inches from the hitch pin hole to that first point of interference, it would be about four inches. So to this back fin here, that's welded in place. That's there to help give it a little bit more support. Helps to maintain the structure of your ball mount so that there's no worries about it coming in on itself. It is welded all the way around here. This is going to be a solid piece and then another solid piece with the holes drilled through. And then that fin is welded all the way down. So it's going to be a really nice beefy construction. The size of our hitch pin hole is a five eighths inch in diameter. It does not come with a pin and clips. That is one thing that you will have to pick up on your own.The holes for our adjustment holes, those are about three quarters of an inch which should match up with your weight distribution system. We'll have a total of six different adjustment points or six different holes to adjust the height. Each of those are separated by about an inch center to center. So, you can adjust that height and inch increments. Or about an inch and a quarter, excuse me. It is made in the USA, and that's about all there is to it for our look at the equalizer weight distribution shank. I hope this video has been helpful in deciding if this is the right one for you. We do have some other sizes available here at etrailer.com, so if you use something that's a little bit different, we should still have you covered. Thanks for watching.

Got a new truck which had a 3" lift so needed a bigger drop. Ordered the 12" drop by accident and called to get it retured and get this one. Teresa was awesome and got me squared away. Quality is great and was just wat I needed! Got the trailer leveled up and ready for spring.
