Dimensions

Tow up to 8,000 lbs with the safety and convenience of the adjustable 8" drop and 8" rise on the EZ Hitch ball mount system. Turn the ball mount over to select a drop or rise. After the ball mount has been installed on your vehicle, just pull the included pin to adjust the combo ball up or down or to flip the combo ball between the 1-7/8" or 2" hitch ball as needed. Replace the pin, and you're ready to tow. The ball mount fits 2" square trailer hitches and is a great solution for those who tow several different trailers.


Keeping your trailer level with your tow vehicle makes it easier and safer to tow. If your trailer is more than 2" nose up, it will sway during towing - increasing tire wear and making your ride less comfortable. Lots of sway makes it harder to drive your vehicle. If the trailer is more than 2" nose down, the load may put too much weight on the hitch and tow vehicle, exceeding the weight limit for both. This puts too much stress on the connection between your trailer and hitch and doesn't leave enough weight on your front wheels, affecting your ability to steer and brake properly. An adjustable ball mount system makes it easy to keep whatever you tow as level as possible.

Video Transcript for Andersen Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - AM3297 Review

Today we'll be reviewing the Rapid Duty Easy Adjustable Ball Mount with a combo ball, providing an 8" drop or 8 inch rise. It is adjustable in increments of an inch and a half and can be used in either the rise or drop position to help ensure a more level tow. This is designed to fit a 2" by 2", hitch-style receiver. The portion, here, of our shank slides into the receiver tube of our hitch and then we can line-up our pinholes and install a hitch pin and lock or hitch pin and clip. Those items are required and sold separately. You can refer to the related items on this product's product page or you can go to our website and type in part number PC3 and it will refer you to a 5/8" pin that comes with a clip. To adjust the ball, we simply pull it out with our pin and clip and then we can adjust this as necessary. We can completely remove it.

If we wanted to leave this portion installed on our vehicle, we can just remove the ball. That way we don't have to worry about hitting our shin up against it. It's going to help deal with the safety when traveling around the rear of our vehicle. That's a good feature to have. You can simply just remove that; put it in a storage compartment or in the bed of your pick-up or SUV.

When you're ready to use it, you can simply put it in place and reinsert the pin and clip. You do have a 1-7/8" ball and a 2" ball to choose from. You can simply flip the mount over to choose between each ball. When using the 2" ball, you're going to have a max growing towing capacity of 8,000 pounds. When using the 1-7/8" ball, that capacity is 7,500 pounds. This system is going to give us a max tongue weight capacity of 1,500 lbs. In the lowest drop position, we're going to have a measurement of 8" from the inside, top edge to the top of the ball platform, which is where we get our drop from.

We can install this in the rise position as well. Again, it's going to give us that 8" measurement from the inside, top edge of the receiver tube to the top of the ball platform. Just to show you the distance that we have between each mounting hole, we have an inch and a half. So, this can adjust in inch and a half increments and you have 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 different mounting holes to choose from when it comes to adjusting the ball mount to accommodate trailers with different coupler heights. That's going to complete today's review of part number AM3297. This is the Rapid Hitch EZ Adjustable Ball Mount with the Combo Hitch Balls. .

Exactly what I was looking for and exactly as advertised. Made a huge improvement to my towing, the hitch looks rugged and solid, I was concerned about slop with only one pin, but it's good and tight and has little to no movement. Absolutely happy with my purchase and the service from etrailer! Mark 495377

Delivered on time, Hitch is great I already had the 4" drop hitch but needed the longer one for my new truck which is taller. Simple operation and seems strong I have pulled a trailer with two 4 seat Rzr's but thats as heavy as I have towed with it. Thanks 322955

Due to so unpleasantness with my homeowners association, my 21' bow-rider is now in my 22' deep garage. It's a pretty tight fit. Also, I have to drop the bow enough to clear a 7' high garage door. It's a cinch with this hitch. I tow with the lock pin in the 5th. hole and drop down to the 3rd. hole to clear the door. Also, the short trailer increased the hitch load. This product is rated for 1000#. 160337

Looks just like what I need; haven't gotten to use it yet. This will replace having to haul four different ball mounts around for my different trailers/tow bars. Site was great with photos aand detailed specifications - especially measurements. Would have been nice to have been able to get the locking 5/8" pin for the ball (manufacturer doesn't make it any more). 75432

Our newest company truck is a Dodge Ram 2500 diesel 4x4. With more than six trailers to tow, we needed a lot of vertical adustment and a very stout ball mount to take advantage of the truck's towing capacity. This mount offers the largest range of vertical adjustment I could find while still providing an impressive 10,000 and 14,000 lb capacity respectively for the 2" and 2-5/16" balls. Great fit, finish and construction. We hauled our first trailer load of product back from one of our manufacturers within hours of recieveing the mount this morning. Very happy with this product. 167744

The web site claims 8 inch up and down adjustment. The Factory Box claims 10 inch on the AM3296. Guess it depends on how and what you measure. I would like to see a Gusset from the Stinger to the Perpendicular adjuster bar. The factory claims 10 K rating with the 2 5/16 ball, BUT with the Ball all the way down or up, there is a Tremendous amount of leverage exerted on the weld. A Gusset would be much safer. I would ALSO like to see a LOCKING Pin on the adjustable ball portion. It is WAY TOO EASY for someone to STEAL this part. Takes only a 5 seconds or so. We have 4 trailers and they all have different hitch heights, so I sure hope this quickly adjustable hitch is going to be the answer to a bed full of different stingers with different heights and a bucket of hitch balls. 243512

This hitch was just what I was looking for, I ordered this one because it has a 14,000lb rating compared to the 10,000lb rating most have. The price was awesome. My only problem I have is I didn't realize my receiver was 2 1/2" instead of 2", now I have to order a sleeve, but that's not a big deal because e-trailer has them too. :) 390360

This is the best hitch I have ever owned. I can pull anything I want knowing that it is safe and secure behind me. I love the ability to adjust the ball height and size to adapt to the particular trailer I am pulling at that time. No more multiple hitches for different trailers. 332509

Recently I purchased a car hauler/utility trailer that is very low to the ground, compared to the hitch height of my pickup. This EZ Adjustable Hitch with 8" drop is exactly what was needed to level the trailer and truck. Excellent quality, great service. Definitely recommend. Thank You! 151497

Review from a similar Andersen EZ Hitch in Ball Mounts


We’ve had this hitch for a year now. We’ve pulled everything from a 3000 lb empty horse trailer to a 12000 lb dump trailer. I’m very happy with the way it functions. Easy to adjust, no rusting and less free play than my last adjustable height hitch. Like anything, with more moving parts, more parts move. So it doesn’t feel the same as a non-adjustable hitch but isn’t sloppy, either. And for all the trailers we have/ pull for friends, adjustability is critical which this hitch does well. 455777

Review from a similar Andersen EZ Hitch in Ball Mounts


Overall it is a great hitch that serves it purpose. Initially I was very impressed with the build quality and heavy duty construction of the hitch. However, there a few issues that I have with the hitch after using it for a little over a year. Below are my pros and cons. Pros 1. Built out of heavy duty materials 2. Lots of height adjustment for a variety of trailers 3. The two pin design allows the ball mount to fit snugly in the adjustment sleeve and doesn't allow much side to side or up and down movement. Cons 1. The pin hole in the hitch is pretty far back on the shaft of the receiver. This makes it so that the hitch sticks out farther than I would prefer in my receiver and allows a good amount of "wiggle" or play up and down. It would be nice if the hole would have been drilled 1/2"-1" further back 2. The finish does not stand up. I keep this hitch under the back seat of my truck until I need it, then it is on my truck for only as long as the trailer is on (usually only a day), and then it goes back under the seat of m truck. I have had it on my truck for 1 or 2 rainy days and one or two snowy days and it is already starting to rust through the powder coat on all the black parts. The ball assembly is also starting to dull and look like it has a layer of corrosion on it. Overall it serves it's intended purpose and works good but the longevity of the finish is concerning, especially sine this hitch spends the majority of it's time in my back seat and not exposed to the elements. I wouldn't want to think what it would look like if I just left it on all the time. I am also not a big fan of slop in my hitches. I like all my towing connections to as tight as possible. 370513


Comments

The hitch still serves its intended purpose but there are still things that I do not like about it. I do not like how a hitch that is stored inside the truck under the back seat and has only seen weather rain and snow only a handful of times is starting to show rust through the powder coat and the polished parts are showing corrosion. If I were to buy a new hitch today I do not know if I would buy this hitch again. I would most likely look at some other options.

just what was needed on our F-150 to tow a homemade dump trailer. The oversized hydraulic ram is tucked under the dump trailer and rides low to the highway. The adjustable mount allows us to set the ride height to compensate for when the trailer is empty, or when it is loaded with a full cord of wood, millings, or gravel. 258093

Thank you all, Katie D., Jena D., Julie MH., as well as Everyone else at E-Trailer who helped me to identify, locate, order, recieve all the towing and hitch related items. Makes my life, towing, much more simple. I had for quite awhile been looking for a short rise and drop hitch sleeve with a 2” ball and 1 7/8” ball combination. Having contacted E-Trailer directly with my specific request, shortly thereafter, you came up with #AM3295 - EZ Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount, with a 4” Rise/Drop, with a 2” and 1 7/8” ball combo by Anderson. PERFECT! With the locking pins to match, same key, #AM3493, also by Anderson, I have on my 2013 Tundra at all times, everything I need or could use. Nothing to go missing, search for, take on and off. From 6 or more items down to just 2 locked in place. I am also most grateful for all the time and effort it took to get the extra set of keys. P.S., the red lines on lock pins, fingernail polish, as a visual LOCKED identifier. Thank you, Michael S. 176430

Excellent fast shipping from etrailer. The receiver appears to be very well built. The one that I got has a longer insert shaft with 2 pin holes so it can be adjusted in or out using the two different positions. This might be a new feature since all the photos and the video that etrailer posts only shows the insert with one hole. Kind of a nice addition to it. 598061

So far so good. Received a surprise early delivery of a toy hauler this weekend. Today I took it down to a storage space so I had to assemble and use the hitch on top of a bare hill at the end of the street with a temperature of 15 and 20mph winds with falling snow. It went together easily and adjustment was simple too. Just have to fine tune it on a bit nicer day. Only the one short haul part way across town, but looking forward to many longer ones to come. 588181
