Video Transcript for Andersen Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - AM3405 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number AM3405. This is the Rapid Hitch adjustable aluminum ball mount kit with 2 greaseless balls. The adjustable aluminum ball mount is going to fit a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. It's going to be very strong, light weight, and it will not rust or corrode. This ball mount will adjust in increments of 1" up to a 5 1/2" drop or 6 1/2" rise. The adjustment pin and clip are both included.

Great advantage of having a system like this is it's going to allow you to tow various trailers with different tongue heights and still be able to use the same vehicle and the same ball mount. You can see here that the hitch balls are secured to the ball housing with an internal pin. That is included. That's going to allow for easy interchangeability. Additional ball sizes can be purchased to replace the originals if needed. This portion here slides on to the adjustable mount.

Once you have your pin holes lined up with one another into the groove, you can insert your pin. We'll put that all the way through, and then we can secure it with the clip on the other side. Also here at the back of the shank you're going to have 2 hitch pin holes that are going to allow for further adjustability. The 2-sided platform is going to feature a 2" ball and a 2 5/16" ball. They're going to feature a greaseless nylon cap that allows for easy rotation between the ball and the coupler when towing. This portion here is going to be the portion that slides into your 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver.

You're going to push it in until you get one of your pin holes to line up with one another, and then insert a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. Those items are sold separately. You can refer to our website and check out some of your options. This is designed to fit a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. It's also compatible with a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" hitch when using a 2 1/2" to 2" inch adapter sleeve.

That's going to be sold separately with part number 58102. You're going to have the 2" ball and a 2 5/16" ball. When using the 2" ball, you're going to have a towing capacity of 6,000 pounds. When using the 2 5/16" ball, you're going to have a towing capacity of 8,000 pounds. With it installed in the max rise position, it's going to give you a rise of 6 1/2". If you installed in the drop position at its lowest setting, it's going to give you a maximum drop of 5 1/2". That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of the ball platform. If we take a measurement from the center of the short hitch pin hole to the center of the ball, that's going to give us a measurement of 8 1/4". Then the distance from the rear pin hole to the center of the hitch ball, that's going to give us a measurement of 9 5/8". If we measure from the center of the short pin hole to the back of the upright portion here, that's going to give us a measurement of 2 3/4". Then to the center of the other hitch pin hole location, that's going to measure 4 1/4". The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole, measuring from the shorter one to the back of the shank, that's going to give us a measurement of 3 1/2". The other one's going to give us a measurement of about 2 1/8". That's going to do it for our review of part number AM3405. This is the Rapid Hitch adjustable aluminum ball mount kit. .

I bought this hitch to pull my horse trailer. The shipping was extremely fast and it looks great. I haven’t used it yet but I will be in a couple day to haul my mule to the vet. I expect this to perform as good as it looks! 569748



- AM3405
by:

Hitch is excellent quality and fit. Very easy adjustment. Only suggestion I have is that it should have a longer shaft. The step on my truck doesn’t come down all the way before it hits the mudflats. The one complaint I have is in order to get a lock for the pin that holds the ball on you also have to get their hitch lock pin. Only sold as a set. If Andersen is going to do that they should include a coupler lock so all 3 would be keyed the same. 552350

Picked up an aluminum burr in my finger when unpacking the unit. There are some unfinished type of circles that are quite sharp and need to be filed smooth. Other than that, the unit looks great and I'm anxious to put it to use. 242407


Comments

The hitch pin did not push through when I flipped the ball mount over into the receiver. I contacted the manufacturer twice and after two more replacements, the ball mount worked as advertised. The hitched looked great during the summer, but the winter road salt and sand took its toll, But at least its not all rusted and overall Im satisfied with the product.

I ordered my AM3405 and was amazed how quickly the etrailer team responded with not only my order confirmation but the fantastic follow up when it was shipped and delivered. I highly recommend etrailer and will order from them again. The product showed up in great shape and I am very happy with the quality. One recommendation would be to order two of the locking pins. One for the receiver and one to lock the ball mount to the unit. You will see by my picture I resolved that issue with a pad lock but the locking pin would have been better. 12115

Hitch works great, no problems installing and like the adjustability of the system. Down side is that they have legs and will walk away if you don’t lock both the receiver and the riser so you have to buy two hitch locks. 447772

I have had it a year and it works perfectly. Love it and it will not rust like my last one did. The greaseless ball cap works great so far. I would recommend.

Perfect !!! The Rapid Hitch is an excellent example of American Quality ... the product is easy to install, easy to adjust for different trailer heights, and should be very durable with the greaseless balls and totally aluminum mount. I am very satisfied. etrailer.com was very prompt with the shipping ... everything arrived in a sturdy box and well packaged to prevent damage. As a result of this purchase and my satisfaction with etrailer.com I have made a couple additional orders for my trailering needs. 179526

Review from a similar Andersen Rapid Hitch in Ball Mounts


Sooooo....you sent me a product that was somehow put together backwards and I cannot take them apart somehow the ballhitch is stuck on the male portion backwards and defies gravity and doesn’t need a pin to stay on(becaue thier is no where to put the pin in cause it’s backwards 594825


Comments

I contacted Andersen and they ship the ballmounts out with the ball portion on the shank backwards. Sometimes the ball will get wedged on there during shipping. According to Andersen you can use a rubber mallet and gently dislodge it.

Review from a similar Andersen Rapid Hitch in Ball Mounts


Hello The hitch works great as viewed in the enclosed pictures. If inverted it hits the bumper, of my Dodge 2500. The section that goes into the receiver is about 1/2" too short and hits the bumper. I have not tried it on my other vehicle to see if this is a problem. Kind Regards Leon D 145385


Comments

Leon, I have the same problem and am looking for a resolution. Ive called Andersen my CA sales rep and left a message.Id even be interested in paying for a custom shank length to be built for me needs. Well see, fingers crossed.

-- comment by: JohnnyJ - 09/04/2014

Johnny thanks for the feedback. In case you did not know we do also offer some ball mounts in extended lengths (long and extra long) for this exact reason. For a long ball mount that has the same rise and drop as this Rapid Hitch ball mount, check out the Diversi-Tech # DTSTBM7025
Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 11" Rise
$251.41
. For this ball mount the distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the upright bar is 4-1/4 inches, vs. the Rapid Hitch # AM3413 is 3 inches.

Review from a similar Andersen Rapid Hitch in Ball Mounts


Product looks and feels great. Only reason it got a 4/5 is because a truck driver friend of mine told me that he had one and the shank wore down from rubbing on steel bc of the aluminum on steel receiver contact. I might rig up a thin steel collar for it to prevent any degradation down the road. Works great on my truck with 7 inches of lift and 35" tires. Buy the Andersen Stainless steel locking pins for it so it doesn't walk off. New pins have better corrosion resistance and are less easily picked by thieves than standard barrel locks, plus they match the look. 218532


Comments

After a year of use I love it. I hear too many problems from friends with other hitches and Im very satisfied with this purchase. It has stayed clean and shiny with just normal car washing and it still adjusts up and down smoothly. Still plenty sturdy and no more wiggle on the shaft then it had when I got it. Highly recommend getting the upgraded stainless steel locking pins from Andersen. Both locks are matching for each pin and far more secure than the standard barrel locks.

Needed an adjustable hitch for my TaB trailer. This will be perfect. Great-looking piece of equipment. Easy to find on website, great prices, fast, fast shipping! Awesome! 162376


Comments

Ive been stopped more than once in a parking lot by someone asking about my hitch & dual lock set-up. I refer them to your site! The hitch works great and the fact that it can be raised/ped is the main reason for the purchase. The dual locks with a single key is handy! A good pair of chocks is needed in every garage for the home mechanic and for camping with a trailer. They smell terrible for a while, just dont store in your car/trailer camper. Money well spent. Your site is my first stop for my trailer needs! thanks!

Review from a similar Andersen Rapid Hitch in Ball Mounts


Works flawlessly. I was very excited the day I got home and my Rapid hitch was on the front porch. It came in nice box and was packaged very well. I opened it up and unpacked my rapid hitch and I was very impressed with the quality and precision of this hitch. All of the machining was PERFECT and everything fit together right. I put it in my truck right away. Going down the road with the trailer on and off there is absolutely no rattles, clunks, or jolts. I also love how everything is aluminum or stainless steel, NO RUST. I wish I could've gotten the greaseless model but my boat is too heavy. My only complaint is that it doesn't come with locking pins. With a hitch this expensive I really wish it came with them. Do yourself a favor and order them with your rapid hitch so you don't have to pay for shipping in the future. Other than that great product and I believe it will outlast me. 348659

Review from a similar Andersen Rapid Hitch in Ball Mounts


This is a really nice hitch if you tow a variety of trailers or need to get your ball up high as I need to do on my 1999 F450. I needed the ball up high to level my Jeep tow bar, so this is just the ticket for me. This hitch is made in the USA, which is great too. eTrailer.com service is excellent and their communication perfect. They obviously care about their customers and the product. Only 2 things prevent a 5 star rating for this very pricey hitch. IMO, for the money, the manufacturer should also include: 1. a lock pin for the adjustable hitch ball. 2: an anti-rattle attachment. 60970

I really like this hitch. Very good quality. Only short fall is that it should include the locks due you can't buy them in any store due to the length is longer than the normal pin lock. I recommend that should be sold as a combo. picture has the locks required 311340

Review from a similar Andersen Rapid Hitch in Ball Mounts


I purchased this to replace a Fastway Flash E Series Ball mount that I purchased and returned from another online seller that did not provide enough clearance from my rear bumper in the rise position. My vehicle really needed the extra 5/8ths of an inch of length on the shank of the Rapid Hitch. Clearance was not a problem in the drop position; but with a receiver that's 18-inches off the ground, I need to use the rise position more frequently than many. The other thing I noticed is that this ball mount is feels more substantial than the one from Fastway. In use, I prefer this to the Andersen EZ hitch I had been borrowing. It looks really cool. It has 5 adjustment positions rather than four and bit more adjustability in either direction. Plus, it still fits in easily in the storage area underneath the floor of my SUV. And did I say it looks really cool. I hated to put grease on the ball before I went to hook up the trailer. Also, I plan to get the lock set. It's looks great on my SUV and seems likely to disappear overnight and look great on someone else's vehicle. 453600


Comments

Ive used this ball mount a lot over the last year both in the 2-inch and 2 and 5/16-inch configuration and it has held up very well. There is a small grove in the shaft from my hitch receiver but, otherwise, it still looks almost new. I did ultimately purchase the lock set for those occasions where I would be disconnecting the trailer, I was towing overnight but didnt want to remove the ball mount only to have to put it back on in the morning.

Review from a similar Andersen Rapid Hitch in Ball Mounts


I love this thing and it has performed well on several long trips: 3 times to TX and once to IL from NJ plus local stuff. It's somewhat lighter than the other ball mounts I've had and certainly looks nicer. It provides a ton of adjustability and my '17 Suburban needed 9 inches of drop for the utility trailer (Stealth Phantom II) I use to haul motorcycles here and there. One thing I'd rather have is two separate balls or just the 2" alone since the other ball does touch down on extreme driveways I've encountered. 635911

Haven't pulled anything with it yet, but overall it appears to be a quality product. There is over .0500 play in the hitch when mounted in the receiver. That will probably make a lot of noise. The adjustment part of the hitch seems pretty good. 619943

Great looking hitch that works great for our needs towing about 7,000lbs on a regular basis. Hitch is durable and easy to use. Adjust quickly between vehicles and different trailer heights.

  • We have a number of adjustable ball mounts that will fit the 2-1/2" receiver tube opening on your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 which I have attached for you. However, the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount Kit part # AM3400 or part # AM3405 are designed to fit a 2" receiver tube opening therefore will not work for you.
