Video Transcript for Tow Ready Hitch Ball 42250 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 42250. This is the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch ball cover for 1-7/8" and 2" hitch ball. The protective cover is going to keep your hands and clothes free of messy trailer hitch ball grease when you're not towing. It's also going to reduce negative effects of weather, rust, and dirt that could accumulate on the hitch ball itself. This is made from a durable rubber construction so it is designed to stand up really well against the elements. Very simple installation and removal. You can get it on and off in just a couple seconds.

It simply just slides on and off. Now the black color is going to compliment any other type of black trim that you may have on your vehicle so it's going to blend in well. Is going to look really good on the back of your vehicle. This is designed to fit 1-7/8" hitch balls as well as 2" hitch balls, but I do want to note that this is going to fit a 1-7/8" hitch ball a little bit easier than a 2" ball. If you put some grease on the inside here or if you have some grease on your hitch ball this should slide really easily onto a 1-7/8" ball and the grease and stuff should help assist it onto a 2" ball as well. I do have a 1-7/8" hitch ball here today.

It is not lubricated in any way. I just want to show you that it does fit the 1-7/8" hitch ball perfectly. It's going to be pretty tight once it gets down to about that far, but if you work it a little bit more you can actually get it all the way down to cover up the wrench flats and go right to the base of that hitch ball platform. That's going to do it for today's review of part number 42250. This is the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch ball cover for 1-7/8" hitch balls and 2" hitch balls. .

Does not fit 2" ball. Too small. 686760

I received everything that I requested in a short time even with the free shipping. The ball mount and the balls I requested and the 2-5/16th ball and the 2" ball were just what I needed. the ball cap for the 2-5/16 ball fit perfect the ball cap for the 2" was really just made for the smaller ball. I would recommend that they make a ball cap for just the 2" ball. Got it to fit but not that well. I will need breaks for my boat trailer after this season and I plan on using etrailer for those parts. will need to call them before I make purchase as Im not sure how to size them up. 699998

I almost bought a tow package and had it installed from a local shop, but after seeing the excellent install videos on here realized how easy it was, including the wiring, which is what I was hesitant of. Sight design and product info is excellent also. I found the same products on two other sites a little cheaper, but I had to use this site just to check their spotty and/or non-existant product information. So naturally I supprorted this company for the customer service. Shipping was fast, free and accurate. 35760

Works great over a 2 5/16" ball. It is easy to place and remove and it keeps the greased ball clean. 525451

This product is awesome! By covering my greasy tow ball, it has saved me from getting countless grease spots on my pants and shirts. It's also extremely easy to handle - I just throw it in my toolbox when not in use. 562671

Thanks etrailer for stocking this product. Maybe the wife will quit fussing about getting grease on her slacks when at the trunk of the car. Shout and Zout don't help. Now if I am only able to remember to put the ball cover on it will certainly help keep marital bliss around this household!. 427947

After getting grease on my pants yet again I ordered one of these Trailer Ball Covers for each of my hitches. No more grease marks! These also help to keep the ball clean and lubed up ready for use. 273895


Comments

I have 3 hitches for various trailers to keep them rolling level, since purchasing three Trailer Ball Covers NO MORE GREASY PANTS!

This is the first time I've used one of these. It only goes on if the ball is greased and comes off easy enough. This should keep my pants from knocking up against the ball and getting grease on them, keep the ball clean of dirt. and save on grease as well as WD40 which I used to clean off the grease so I wouldn't get the aforementioned pants greasy when the ball isn't in use. 389681

Still using it. Still doing the job.

When I first received this product, it wouldn't fit on my 2" ball. I tossed it aside, assuming it was useless. A few months later, after I had greased the ball, I figured I'd give the cover another try. The cover slid on easily. I've been using it regularly ever since. It's nothing fancy, but it does it's job by staying on and keeping my pants from getting grease stains every time I brush against the hitch. 355160

Excellent ball cover for hitch storage. Simple but elegant solution for keeping grease off of everything else. 308410


Comments

In the year I ve owned, Ive discovered the secret to putting the cover on a 2 ball is to squeeze the cover closed like a turkey baster as you slip onto the ball - the vacuum will allow the cover to slip on the greasy-ball more easily.

Another great accessorie to keep your hitch ball protected and keep the grease off of you. A little hard to put on due to the tight fit but easy to figure out how to overcome the trapped air and vent it out as you put it on the hitch ball the first time. 272361

  • 1 7/8" Ball for Weigh Safe Ball Mount
  • Thank you for your purchase! I see that you bought the Weigh Safe 2.5" Ball Mount w/Scale, # WS10-25, which comes standard with a 2" ball. You are in luck, we offer a 1 7/8" ball that can be used with your Weigh Safe ball mount. You'll want to order Weigh Safe Ball, # WSB-L, which has a weight capacity of 7500 lb and is perfect for smaller utility trailers like yours. I also recommend getting a hitch ball cover like # 42250 that will work with 1 7/8" and 2" balls. If you ever need to...

  • 2 Inch Stainless Steel Hitch Ball with 1-1/4 Inch Shank
  • I do have options for you but we do not have exactly what you are looking for. The best option we have is the 2" Hitch Ball part # SC23-C which is made of stainless steel and has a 1" diameter shank. In order to then use this with a 1-1/4" diameter ball hole you would also need the Hitch Ball Bushing part # F-2. The Hitch Ball Bushing is zinc plated and unfortunately we don't have any that are stainless steel. We also have the Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball Cover part # 42250 as an alternative.

  • Can Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6800 withstand Indiana Winters
  • I would always recommend storing a ball mount of any type and in any geographic location because I personally hate bumping by shins or knees on them! I have also seen some get corroded and stuck in the hitch receiver so that is another reason to take it out when not in use. The outer parts of the Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6800, will withstand those harsh Indiana winters, salt brine, debris, and all. The unit is made of aluminum so it is strong and corrosion...

  • Fit of Hitch Covers and Ball Covers on 2-Inch Hitch on 2007 Chrysler Aspen
  • If you want a cover for your actual hitch ball itself you can use # 42250 or one of the others shown on the included link. In the case of your 2007 Chrysler Aspen the only size of hitch receiver that is offered is the 2-inch Class III type; please see the linked page. Hitch BALLS can be a 1-7/8-inch diameter (or 2-inch or 2-5/16-inch) but a hitch receiver itself, which is mounted to a vehicle frame, will generally be either 1-1/4-inch, 2-inch or 2-1/2-inches square. In your 2-inch...

  • Availability of Rubber Cover that fits Over Entire Hitch Ball
  • We have covers that will fit over the entire hitch ball and shank, though at present we do not have covers that will fit over the mount. If your hitch ball has a 2-5/16 inch diameter we have # 42251. For a 1-7/8 inch and 2 inch diameter hitch ball there is # 42250. These units slide nicely over the ball and covers the whole thing. The fit is good and it stays on until you take it off.

  • Diversi-Tech Replacement Stainless Double Ball for Diversi-Tech DTSTBM Ball Mounts # DTBM28
  • Yes, the Diversi-Tech Replacement Stainless Double Ball for DTSTBM Ball Mounts, part # DTBM28, is a direct replacement double ball for their Solid-Tow series adjustable aluminum ball mounts. This replacement stainless steel double ball installs using a 5/16-inch hex wrench. The procedure is as follows: 1) Loosen the hex bolt that holds the ball platform to the ball mount and slide the platform off the mount; 2) Run the hex bolt that holds the balls in the ball platform all the way in...

  • Should a Chrome Hitch Ball Be Greased
  • Yes, it is never going to hurt to grease the hitch ball and it would make for disconnecting the coupler easier so I do recommend this. For this, we have the White Grease Hitch Ball Lube part # 58117 which works really well. The hitch ball grease in addition to helping uncouple the trailer will also work to prevent rust. If you wanted to go one step further you could also use the Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball Cover part # 42250. I recommend greasing the coupler or ensuing there is still grease...
