Video Transcript for Brophy Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - BM10 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number Bm10. This is a Brophy Trailer Hitch Ball Nut with a 10 inch drop. It's rated at 5,000 pounds. It is designed to fit 2" by 2" trailer hitch receivers. You see here on the back side that it does have the hollow shank. We're going to go over a few measurements.

If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole, which is this portion here, to the center of the ball hole, it's going to give us a measurement of 10 1/2". The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the gusset here, we're going to measure to the weld. That's going to measure 3 3/4" and center of hitch pin hole to the back of the shank is going to measure about 2 1/2". When choosing a hitch ball, you want to make sure that your hitch ball shank does not exceed the ball hole diameter, which for this particular mount is going to give us a measurement of 1". This will use a ball inch shank diameter. It's going to provide us with 10" of drop from the top of receiver tube of your hitch to the ball platform.

This rated for up to 5,000 pounds of gross towing weight and up to 500 pounds of maximum tongue weight. When using a ball mount with a 10 inch drop, it does reduce the trailer hitch capacity by 1/3. Your towing capacity is limited to 2/3 of your lowest rated towing component, whether it's the vehicle, the hitch, the ball mount, or the hitch ball. You also want to be sure not to use extenders when using a ball mount with this much drop and you do not want to use in reverse position. This is for the drop position only. The draw bar base or platform is going to give us a width of 3".

It's going to give us a thickness of 3/4". That's going to do it for today's review of part number BM10. This is the Brophy Trailer Hitch Ball Mount with a 10" drop. Rated at 5,000 pounds. .

Product is great, and delivered exactly as described. etrailer.com did an excellent job with customer service. Communication was top notch. This was a customer service test for etrailer.com and they passed with flying colors. I will do business with them again. 569372

The products I purchased are of good quality and the 10" drop ball mount was exactly as advertised. The only problem I have is with the amount of dimension information provided on your website for the sway control bracket that did not fit on the ball mount itself. Your website states that the ball mount is a class III mount and that the sway control bracket would fit on class III and class IV mounts when in fact it does not. Other than that I am satisfied with the quality, cost and delivery of my products. 554928

This replaces an adjustable hitch that rattled, clattered, and banged so much it drove me crazy. I use this to pull small trailers with astronomical equipment in them, with the old hitch the trailers would swing side to side enough the items inside the trailer would shift position and rub on other items. 407239

I ordered a 10 drop ball mount, a wheel chock to hold my motorcycle and a master lock ball lock to use when the trailer is parked. I am very happy with the purchase, the ball mount and the wheel chock have good looking welds and they are power coated, the security lock is polished stainless. I am real happy with my purchase. the sales person, ( Karen in this case ) was knowledgable on the products, I qualified for free shipping, was given an email and tracking number, so I knew at all times were my shipment was in route. The products were packages well with no damage and UPS did an outstanding job of meet their stated schedule for delivery, out standing. The purchase and delivery proves to me American Business can excel and they really did with my order. 160507

Ball mount with 10 inch drop is great, but it arrived with half of it sticking out of the box. Just some minor scratches in the paint. Stronger packaging needed. 74876

Very impressed with etrailer. The product was in stock. They kept me informed every step of the way. When delivered (on time) the hitch and ball were in perfect condition. To top it off, etrailer sent me an email telling me the shipment was delivered on my porch. Best service I have gotten from internet shopping. This is the first review I have ever writtten - tells how impressed I was. 51217

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Correct Use of Roadmaster 10 Inch High-Low Hitch Adapter
  • Tow bars are used behind motorhomes or trucks to tow a vehicle. The Roadmaster 10 inch High - Low Hitch Adapter, part number RM-048-10, is not designed to have tongue weight applied to it like when towing a boat trailer, utility trailer or camper. This adapter is designed for applications where the towed vehicle is resting on its own four wheels and being pulled by another vehicle with a tow bar. We do have ball mounts with a 10 inch drop or more and adjustable draw bars that will allow...

  • Anti-Rattle Device to Stop Rattle and Movement of a Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
  • We have several different anti-rattle devices that you could use to reduce or maybe even eliminate rattle of the rack in the hitch. First, many bike racks now come with a threaded bolt or anti-rattle device of some kind. If you can tell me the bike rack you have I can see if there is one specifically made for it. If you have a 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch trailer hitch opening and bike rack shank, and the shank is hollow I recommend the locking anti-rattle device and lock # SHP2082. The cam...

  • Ball Mount With 10" Drop for Tow Dolly
  • I believe you are asking about a ball mount with a 10" drop and I recommend checking out the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # AMSC10. This ball mount fits 2" receivers, has a maximum 10" drop and a weight capacity of 8,000 lbs. You will need Pin and Clip # PC3, and for a 2" hitch ball you will need # 40038; if you needed a 2-5/16" hitch ball the correct part is # C40007.

  • What is the Distance from the Hitch Pin Hole to the Weld Gusset on Brophy Ball Mount BM10
  • The Brophy 2-inch Ball Mount # BM10 measures 3-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest edge of the gusset weld seam. The photo provided includes this measurement.

  • Availability of 2-Inch Ball Mount with 10-Inches of Drop
  • For a 2-inch ball mount with 10-inches of drop you can refer to the linked page which displays fixed ball mounts like # AMSC10, which offers 10-inches of drop or 8-3/4-inches of rise. This ball mount measures 11-1/2-inches from the hitch pin hole to the ball hole. For a similar adjustable ball mount with 10-inches of maximum drop you might prefer MaxxTow # MT70067 which provides 12-1/4-inches from the hitch pin hole to the ball hole. A second link to adjustable ball mounts is provided...

  • What is Clearance From Hitch Pin Hole to Welded Gusset on Brophy Trailer Hitch Ball Mount # BM10
  • On the Brophy Trailer Hitch Ball Mount # BM10 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest edge of the welded support gusset is 3-3/4. Please note that use of this ball mount with its 10-inch drop will have the effect of reducing your hitch's capacity by 1/3. It can neither be used with extenders nor used in an inverted position. I checked all available ball mounts with 10-inches of drop (all can be seen on the link provided) but none offers the 5-1/4-inches of clearance...

  • Ball Mount with the Most Drop for a 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • I have not seen a 1-1/4 inch ball mount that offered 12 inches of drop. The most that we have is a 6 inch drop # C45028 (Class I or II) or # BM96 (Class I). If this is for a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee I recommend switching to a Class III, 2 inch trailer hitch, # 13251, so you can use a ball mount with more drop such as # AMSC12.
