Video Transcript for Review of Andersen Adjustable Ball Mount - Adjustable Ball Mount - AM3462

Today we're going to take a look at the Rapid Hitch adjustable aluminum ball mount kit with the four inch drop or a four inch rise. Now, this is an adjustable aluminum alloy ball mount that'll fit into a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. It's very strong, very lightweight, looks great, and will not rust. And the ball mount can adjust in one inch increments up to a four inch drop or a four inch rise.The pin . the adjustment pin right here is all included with the clip. Now, this is recommended for vehicles with 20 inch or less measured from the ground to the top of your receiver opening when the vehicle is level.

That will include many light duty trucks and SUVs, and it does allow towing of various trailers with the same ball mount. It does have two zinc plated steel hitch balls, all included.It's on a two sided platform, so you have a two inch diameter on this side and on the other side is a 1 and 7/8 inch diameter ball. The hitch balls do secure to the ball housing with an internal pin that's included. I'm going to show you that in a minute here. And allows for easy interchangeability of the balls, and also additional ball sizes can be purchased to replace the originals.If you notice on the shank back here, it offers two hitch pin holes which allow for further adjustment when you install this into your hitch receiver.

So if you put it in the hitch pin hole that's furthest back, it'll stick out a little bit. You put it into one that's closest, it'll move it in a little bit, so just depends on what application you need it for. You put it in whichever hitch pin hole will work for you.If you notice also on the back it has an angled cut on the shank, and this allows easier installation into your hitch receiver opening. Now, they do offer a locking pin set which we do sell separately that you can lock this to your hitch receiver. This part is made in the USA.

Again, this is designed to fit two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers. Now, it will also work with a 2.5 inch by 2.5 inch hitch receiver, but it does require a 2.5 inch to 2 inch adapter sleeve, which we do sell separately on our website. It's listed on this product page as a related product.Again, the ball diameter is 1 and 7/8 inch, 2 inch. Towing capacity will depend on which ball you use. If you use the 1 and 7/8 inch diameter ball, I'll give you a 7,500 pound gross towing weight capacity.

If you the 2 inch ball, it'll be an 8,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. And the tongue weight capacity overall will be 1,500 pounds.Now, the maximum drop . which we have in that position right now, it's going to be right at four inches. And that's from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform. And if you use it in this application, the maximum rise is also going to be right at four inches. I do want to give you a few measurements on the distance of these two hitch pin holes back here from the center of the hitch ball to those holes. So basically the furthest hole from the ball, which will be this one right here, if we go center of the hitch ball to the center of the furthest hitch pin hole, that's going to be right at 9 and 5/8 inches. And if go from the center to the ball . the hole closest to the ball is going to be 8 and 1/4 inches.I just want to demonstrate here . We'll go ahead and pull the clip out, and then slide your adjustment pin out, and that'll allow you to remove it. You can see the adjustment levels. They're an inch apart. And again you can flip it over, use it in a rise position. Basically all you have to do is when you slide it in there, find whichever position will work best for you. Slide your pin through there. Clip it into place.And then we had talked about the balls. You can exchange balls. There's a pin right here, an internal pin, so you can see if you just turn that over and drop that pin out . that pin will drop right out. And then you can inaudible 00:03:44 dual ball platforms. You can either switch the ball around if you'd prefer, or interchange it with the different other balls. And then to put it back in, just put it in which ball you want. Take your internal pin, line it up to where your hole is, and once it lines up it'll drop all the way in and lock it into place. And you're all ready to go. Slide it back into whatever height you need. Slide your pin through there, take your clip, clip it onto the pin, and you're all ready to go. Simple as that.But that should do it for the review on the Rapid Hitch adjustable aluminum ball mount with kit with a four inch drop or a four inch rise.

Just received my order yesterday. As stated in prior reviews, the ordering was simple, I received a confirmation of my order within minutes (on a Sunday!), a follow up email was sent the next day confirming shipment with an expected delivery date and a link to track the progress of my shipment, it arrived on Thursday (as stated). I then received another email asking if everything arrived ok and if there were any questions. In short, an excellent experience throughout. Love my new hitch and it looks great on my truck. I will definitely be sharing my experience with friends and family. 516245

Just took delivery of the Anderson 4" drop adjustable. Seems very nice and decent quality. Service by e-trailer was prompt once again. Will need to put the hitch to use before giving a complete review but impressed out of the box for now. Same with the locking pins. 345342

Still content with the product. It appears to be well engineered and has served me well without issues through a year of use. Would get another if it becomes necessary for a second vehicle.

Convenient, easy to use, and the material held up great even after being left on the truck every day in the winter. The road salt had no impact on looks, finish, or function. 258916

Purchased the Rapid Hitch Aluminum Ball Mount Kit w/2 Greaseless Balls and the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock. Arrived very quickly. Arrived in great condition. Both appear to be made very well. I used the Rapid Hitch the next day and it worked great. Very happy with the hitch, ball, and the hitch lock and adjustment pin lock and etrailer.com. 502399

Just installed, haven’t towed with it yet, quality after examination is spot on. The hitch lock set by Anderson towing products is very well machined. Lori B. At etrailer answered all my questions, was polite and professional. This is my first order from them but won’t be my last. 719473

Brought this for my HD pickup truck to tow my 18 foot enclosed cargo trailer. It's good looking, functional, no future rust, and works great. I'm still out on the greaseless aspect of the hitch balls, but so far, so good. 321741


Comments
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.

This is a must have for full-time trailer hauling. No ball grease needed. Easy to adjust for a level trailer, smooth towing. I increased my trailer tires to light duty truck tires (a little taller tire), for heaver loads & ease of mind to haul at 75 mph speed. This hitch allow me to fine tune the trailer ball height for best setup on my heavy duty Toyota Tundra truck. 426553

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 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

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 Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


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.

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
$267.42
. 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.
