Video Transcript for Brophy Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - EA60 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy aluminum ball mount. Now, a ball mount's going to let you hook up your trailer to your towed vehicle. The shank's going to slide into the receiver tube of the hitch. The ball platform's going to provide the mounting point for the hitch ball. Now, your hitch ball is sold separately, so if you need 1, you can find 1 right here at etrailer.com. The platform's going to measure 1" in thickness and then the ball hole diameter on this mount's going to have a diameter of 1", so just be sure to keep that in mind when choosing the hitch ball.

The unit's made from a heavy duty, aluminum construction. It's a very strong, very durable and lightweight. It's going to be highly resistant towards rust and corrosion. It's a solid, 1 piece design. You can use this in either the drop position or the rise position, to ensure level towing.

To get it secured in your hitch, it is going to require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock. Those items are sold separately. If you need 1, you can find them here at etrailer.com. The pin holes on the ball mount will accept a standard 5/8" diameter pin. It's designed for a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. It's going to offer a gross, total weight capacity, of 8000 pounds, with a maximum tongue 00:01:05 weight capacity of 800 pounds.

If we take a measurement of the overall length, measuring from edge to edge, that's going to give us a measurement of about 16". The distance that we have from the center of the hitch ball hole to the center of the hitch pin hole . That's going to give a measurement . That looks to measure around 12", and then if we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank, that's going to measure about 2 and 5/8". Now, when using this in the rise position, you want to make sure you have enough room to get this installed, without hitting anything at the back of the vehicle, like your bumper. What we can do is, we can take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the beginning of the bend, right here.

Then, you can see the higher up we go, the more that measurement's going to increase. This is going to let you know if you have enough room at the back of your vehicle to install this without this interfering by the rear-most point of your vehicle. What you can do is, you can go out to your vehicle and 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 give you, then this ball mount will work perfect for your application. Again, the supplies 00:02:29 have been using it in the rise position, so from the center of that hitch pin hole to the base of that curve or bend, that's going to give a measurement . looks to be about 4 and 3/4". Again, if that rear-most point of the vehicle sits up higher, keep in mind that that measurement's going to increase, the higher up we go. You should be in the clear if your measurement's less than the measurement I gave you. Again, you can use it in either the drop or rise position. When using it in the drop position, it's going to give you a maximum drop of 6". That's measuring from the inside, top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of the ball platform. When using it in the rise position, it's going to give you a maximum rise from this point here to this point here, of 5". It's a very simple installation. All you have to do is slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, wind up your pin holes, and secure with a hitch pin and clip. Place it in. Make sure everything's lined up. Now, the pin and clip I'm using for our demonstration today, can be found right here at etrailer.com. I'm using part number PC3. That's going to be your standard, 5/8" diameter pin, and it's going to come with a clip. That's going to do it for today's look at the Brophy aluminum ball mount.

Beautiful Forged aluminum stinger hitch. Smooth edges won't catch on stuff and it will ride in the truck with less snagging on other items. Price was right too. 320046

I would not recommend this ball mount. It fits extremely loose in the receiver and rattles like crazy. I am concerned that the aluminum will wear away slowly and the rattling will increase over time. 551571


Comments

As with any manufactured product, the outside dimension of the ballmounts shank will have an acceptable tolerance. The same goes for the inside dimension of the hitch receiver tube. Occasionally, there will be an accessory thats on the small side of tolerance used in a receiver thats on the large side of tolerance. In that case, there will be some movement of the ballmount in the receiver. According to CR Brophy, the manufacturer, this is perfectly normal and wont cause any problem. If the movement is concerning to you, there are anti-rattle devices available such as RM-061 that will force the shank of the hitch accessory up against the side of the receiver tube so it wont move around.

works as intended. I have two other aluminum mounts from other manufactures that fit more tight. Packing was poor and finish had scratches. 651779

Perfect for my Tahoe. I have a 2019 Tahoe LS 4x4 with the max tow package. The receiver is mounted higher than than on the truck it replaced. Six inches of drop appears to be just about right for my boat trailer. 605569

Very strong sleek ball mount with great finish that I was unable to find in the Atlanta area. A dealer told me about etrailer.com. No seams or welds that might break over time. Using the ball mount with a 6000 # rated hitch ball to tow a 519Z Ranger bass boat behind an Escalade. Their customer service associate, Paula, was very helpful to locate the EA60 in their assortment. 599907

Ask the Experts about this Brophy Ball Mounts
Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • 2-Inch Ball Mount with 6-Inches of Drop for Towing Car Trailer
  • Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-048-6 is intended for use along with a Roadmaster tow bar like their BlackHawk 2 # RM-422 but is not rated for trailer towing, as you noted. Instead you'll want to use a ball mount with the same 6-inches of drop, such as 8K-rated aluminum ball mount # EA60 from Brophy or Andersen's # AM3507. Be sure to use a hitch ball rated for the trailer's weight, such as 2-inch 7.5K ball # SC23-C. Please refer to the linked article and ball mount page.
