Video Transcript for Brophy Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - EA40 Review

Today we are going to be taking a look at the Brophy aluminum ball mount. Now the ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank is going to slide into the receiver to move your hitch and then the ball platform is going to provide the mounting point for your hitch ball. This product does not include a hitch ball, so if you need one you can find them right here at etrailer.com, we carry a variety of those. They are going to be sold separately. The ball hole diameter on this unit is going to measure 1 inch, so be sure to keep that in mind when choosing a hitch ball.

The ball mount is made from a heavy duty aluminum construction, very strong and durable, lightweight. It is going to be highly resistant to rust and corrosion and is a solid one piece design. Now you can use this in either the rise or the drop position, so both positions are available to ensure level towing. To get it secure on your hitch, it is going to require a hedge pin and clip or hitch lock. Those items are sold separately if you are in need of one, you can find them here at etrailer.com. The pin holes on the mount will accept a standard 5/8 inch diameter pin.

It is designed for a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. It is going to offer a gross towing weight of 8,000 pounds with a maximum tongue weight capacity of 800 pounds. We are going to take a measurement of the overall length, measuring from end to end. That is going to give us a measurement of about 14 5/8 of an inch. The distance that we have from the center or the hitch ball hole to the center of the hitch pin hole that's going to give a measurement of about 10 1/2 inches. Now when using this in the rise position, you want to make sure you have enough clearance to use this mount at the back of your vehicle.

Meaning that you don't want this point to interfere with the rear most part of your vehicle, whether it be your bumper, or anything else that you have back there. What we can do is we can take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest point of the bend right there, and then you can see that that measurement will increase the higher up we go. You can go out to your vehicle, measure from the center of your hitch pin hole to the rear most point of your vehicle. If that measurement is less than the measurement I'm going to give you, then this will work perfect for your vehicle. Measuring from the center of the hitch pin hole to the beginning of that bend, that's going to give us a measurement of about 4 5/8ths of an inch. Again, that measurement increases as we go up the mount.

Taking a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank, we are looking at 2 5/8ths of an inch. Now when using this in the rise position, it's going to give us a maximum rise of 3 inches. That is measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver to the top of the ball platform. Using it in the drop position, it's going to give us a maximum drop from the inside top edge of the receiver to the top of the ball platform of 4 inches, then the ball platform thickness is going to measure right at 1 inch. It is a very simple installation. All you have to do is slide it into the receiver of your hitch and you want to push it in until you get the pin holes to line up, just like that. Then simply secure it with the hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock. The one I am using for our demonstration today can be found right here at etrailer.com using part number PC3, that is going to be a standard 5/8 inch diameter pin and it's going to come with the clip. That's going to do it for today's look at the Brophy aluminum ball mount.

Still very pleased with this hitch. Some lengths of these heads are hard to find and this was exactly what I needed.

Overall the product looks good, fair pricing, average delivery. I am a little disappointed with how loosely it fits into my receiver. My truck is a brand new 2018 GMC Sierra. You can wiggle the hitch quite a bit, I hope this problem will not be too noisy. It can only get worse with time and wear, especially since it is Aluminum. I saw this complaint on some other reviews. The product needs to be made a little larger. You can always take material off easier than you can add material. 489270

Robert, Thank you for your review. Some of the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500s have a factory 2-1/2 inch. This brophy ball mount part # EA40 is designed for a 2 hitch. If you have a 2-1/2 hitch the closest ball mount we have to the rise, and length that is needed is part # 45123

. This Reese ball mount has 3-1/2 inch rise, 5 inch and is 16- 1/2 inches long. It is rated at 13,000 lbs. If you are not sure what size factory hitch you have I have attached a link to help you measure. If it turns out you do have a 2 inch hitch, I would recommend an anti-rattle such as part BX88224. The blue ox immobilizer will tighten up the connection between the ball mount and hitch receiver to help quiet the rattle.

I ordered a Brophy Ball Mount after careful consideration to what I needed. A good description really helped a lot in that process. The ball mount arrived sooner then expected and suits my needs perfectly. The price was good and the service was good. A very good product, good price and good service. I have also bought other products from them and always been happy. 413686

I ordered the first time on the website, and after I didn't receive it for some time, I called and was told it is on back order. Had I known that 2 weeks earlier, would have helped. So reordered on the phone, and received it when promised. Unfortunately the shipper packed a steel ball in the same box with an aluminum hitch, and no padding around the ball. The hitch got pretty well beat up. 405941

Ask the Experts about this Brophy Ball Mounts

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Choosing the Correct Aluminum Hitch Ball For 2004 Ford Ranger
  • The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13138 is certainly the hitch I recommend for your 2004 Ford Ranger so that the spare tire can remain stored under the vehicle. To choose the correct ball mount for your truck and trailer, it is best to measure from the top inside of the hitch receiver to the ground and from the bottom of the coupler lip to the ground. The difference in these measurements will tell us what rise or drop we need in a ball mount. Since you don't have the hitch...

  • Are there Stainless Steel or Aluminum Ball Mounts
  • There have been stainless steel ball mounts in the past but they were pricey so aluminum is the way to go now. Aluminum offers corrosion resistance, lighter weight, and a lower cost compared to stainless steel so it would make a good option for you. I have included a link to the right to the aluminum ball mounts we carry. I have also included a link to a help article that covers how to measure to get a ball mount with the proper rise or drop needed to tow a trailer level. Aluminum...

  • Stainless 2 inch Hitch Ball Recommendation for a Brophy Ball Mount EA40
  • For a 2 inch diameter stainless steel hitch ball to use with the Ball Mount part # EA40 that you referenced the Brophy ball part # SC23-C would work great. This ball has 2-1/8 inch long shank that is 1 inch in diameter so it would fit the # EA40 well.

  • Long Aluminum Ball Mount for a 2018 Subaru Outback with Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

If you have the Class III 2 inch trailer hitch I recommend Brophy aluminum ball mount # EA40. It measures 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It has a drop of 4 inches or rise of 3 inches. I have linked a video review of this ball mount for you. If you have...
