Video Transcript for Convert-A-Ball Ball Mounts AMSC2 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Convert-a-ball Cushioned Ball Mount for 2" hitches. One of the things that really makes this ball mount kind of unique or separate from the others is that it's got a cushioned interior. That's designed to help protect the tow vehicles drive line and hitch assembly as well as the trailer's contents. Now I have a demo model here just to show you the internal components. Right here is our hitch pinhole. Then you can see that in front of and behind it we're going to have the polyurethane interior. This is going to act as a shock absorber which is going to reduce bounce and the rhythmic vibration when towing, especially when accelerating or coming to a stop or sudden stop. You can use this in either the drop or rise position to help level your trailer.

It's going to provide a 2" drop from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of the ball platform or a 3/4" rise when used in the rise position. The unit's made from a steel construction. It has a really nice black powder coat finish to help resist rust and corrosion and it's designed for your 2" x 2" hitch. You just slide it in and then you'll want to secure it with the hitch pin and clip or hitch pin and lock. It's going to use a standard 5/8" diameter pin.

Those items are sold separately so if you need one you can find them right here at ETrailer.com. This product is made in the USA. Again, it's going to fit your 2" x 2" trailer hitch. It's going to offer a towing capacity of 10,000 pounds with a ton weight capacity of 2000 pounds. The diameter of the ball hole, that's going to measure 1". You want to make sure that whatever hitch ball you choose doesn't exceed that 1" measurement. A few measurements to go over with you real quick.

Taking the measurement from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of the hitch ball hole, that's going to give a measurement, looks to be about 9-1/2". The distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to this point right here, that's going to measure about 5" and from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the shank, we're looking at about 2-3/4". That's a really simple installation. Going to show you how to install it inside of the hitch. What we're going to do is slide it into the receiver tube, line up our pinholes, and then you would secure it using a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. That's going to do it for today's look at the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount for 2" hitches..

This is the second cushioned ball mount I have ordered. Due to the different hitch heights on my vehicles, I needed a 2" drop on my new Nissan Frontier. So now I have a 2" and a 4" drop ball mount. These work great, they eliminate the harsh slamming and jerking you often get when stopping and taking off. They definitely smooth out the impact the trailer has on a vehicle, especially if the trailer is loaded with any weight. A good friend recommended the cushioned ball mount to me and I have not regretted buying it. I won't use anything else now on my vehicles. 61688

2007 Toyota Tundra 5.7L, 7X14 Parker flatbed tandem axle utility trailer 7700 lb capacity. I've only used it once since purchasing it, but compared to my previous non-cushioned ball mount it does an excellent job cushioning the load and keeps the trailer from banging the mount in the box and shaking the truck upon braking and acceleration. Very nice when hauling 2+ tons of cargo. Fast shipping from etrailer too. 131504

We have a Pink Tractor (google Mom's Pink Tractor) that we pull to events, mainly in Ks, Ok, Mo, and Ne. We have around 35 events a year we take the tractor to to promote breast cancer awareness. The other day my wife and I were leaving for an event, i had let a friend borrow the hitch to see how he liked it. In less then a mile from the house my wife started complaining about the trailer jerking. That is coming from a lady that really was upset when I paid that much for a hitch. She told me to stop and buy one. (a long and expensive trip, we had to stop at a casino so she could rest her neck) I could write a review with a lot of trailer talk, but, this story tells the story. 301833

I give this five stars for its functionality, quite stops and same for take off. However the shaft could be an inch or two longer for my FX 35. I cannot turn 180 degrees to use higher height without my trailer’s receiver hitting/rubbing the bumper. I would prefer height as trailer stand bottoms out on aprons. I could get an extension but that would defeat purpose of the shock absorber. My advice to potential buyers is to measure the distance from pin to ball to make sure there is enough clearance between ball the bumper. Wouldn’t be surprised if it just an issue with this vehicle model. 457506


Comments

Christopher,Thank you for your review. The best option for your clearance issue is a longer ball mount. Hitch extenders reduce your tongue weight by 50 percent. I am not sure how much rise you need to be level with your trailer. The convert-a-ball, ball mount part # AMSC8
Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 6-3/4" Rise, 8" Drop - 10,000 lbs
$73.43
has a 6-3/4 inch rise and is 11-1/2 inches long from center of hitch pin hole to the center of ball hole. This ball mount also has the shock absorbent features.

this is the second cushioned ball mount I have purchased. I haul a specialty trailer daily for work, stop & go, rough terrain first ball mount I used was just a cheap hollow one witch was turning the pin hole on the truck into an oval. Bought a cushioned ball mount and it lasted 4-6years of towing 3-5days/week before one of the pins holding the cushion in finally corroded in half. I'm sure the pin could have been replaced with some work to compress the rubber again but for the price and longevity of the product I just ordered new and keep on going. 378801

still going strong, Curious about the Gen-Y torsion ball mounts but at $550 vs this one at $70 not curious enough

Timb - 05/10/2018

Thanks for the feedback Timb. You are correct the Gen-Y Ball mounts are significantly more expensive than this one. They do offer a torsion style shock absorbing cushion to the ball mount, but do also offer many additional features when compared to this ball mount from Convert-A-Ball.

I've used the convert a ball products in the past, and always had good luck with them. When my last hitch was lost, I tried to find a replacement at some local farm supply stores and was disappointed to find they didn't have the quality product I was looking for. Found etrailer online and was pleased to see I could buy the quality made in the USA hitch accessories I needed. Customer service was great, the representative I spoke with was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I had what I needed on my doorstep within a day and a half. Thanks etrailer! 40883

This hitch replaced a standard non cushioned hitch. which was great - when I only had a jetski to pull. as I've gotten older, my toys have gotten bigger. The cushioned hitch reduces the shockload from start / stop with a heavier trailer attached. now, pulling a trailer is less of a head (and neck) ache. we'll have to see how well the elastomers hold up - but for now, I would only recommend this type of hitch to my friends and family. 326038

Does take the sharp shock out of take off and braking. I am using this ball mount on a surge brake system and seems to work fine. A little expensive but worth it in my opinion for spec weights it can handle and additional feature of shock control. I purchased the 12K lb. Curt ball #40038 to go on mount and they are great match for pulling 6,500 lb. boat and trailer. I have more piece of mind than my previous 5K lb. spec ball and mount. 229952

well over the hitch is very well made. The hitch itself fit great all holes lined up fine.The only problem the flat round washers were to small for the bolts supplied and you should supply washers for the bracket that mounts under the bumper because the holes on the hitch are pretty big , its possible for the lock washer to seat crooked. A trip to the hardware store fixed the issues. Overall were very happy with the hitch. 258689

A buddy of mine told me about these cushioned hitches. Wow! What a difference towing my trailor! Would have never believed it would have made such a big difference. My trailor used to push and jerk my truck around with every bump. Now with this hitch, it pulls so much more smoother. Incredible what a difference this makes! I will never use a regular hitch again. 207679

The service I received was excellent, within an hour of placing my order I received an email that my standard shipping had been upgraded to 2 day without any upcharge. Products were received as expected and the "Quite Hitch" performs without any issue, stopping all movement between the hitch and reciever. I will definitely do business with etrailer again. 124512

Second cushioned ball mount for me, I find these really do make things a little smoother, it will not be my last one! Just did a 500 mile trip with my GMC 2500 pulling a single axle trailer with Polaris UTV, it was like it was not there, less noise, no rattles and super smooth. Free shipping was super fast, great communication from order to delivery. 324833

Very happy and secure with this purchase and very confident of the safety rating. Only complaint is I wish the load rating would be stamped on the mount instead of a sticker. As long as there are no problems I can overlook the fact of no stamped documentation. Otherwise very happy with purchase and can't wait to feel the diffenrce while towing. 42345

Great hitch. It's very solid and weighs in at 10lbs. Just a note, I got this hitch with a convert-a-ball set, and when I have a ball on here, the center of the ball is actually slightly higher than the center of the locking pin hole. It'll work for me, but make sure your tow height will be okay slightly above the hitch height. 65493

I ordered a hitch for our new Touareg to pull the camper but found it still has movement up and down. Does this hitch fit tightly in the receiver and get rid of the clunking??? What are you pulling with it with regard to weight?

-- comment by: Ed G - 08/16/2015

Thanks for your comment, we do offer several styles of ball mount stabilizers that you may be interested in, however please keep in mind that since these immobilize the ball mount it will deactivate the shock absorber action on your ball mount. Another option if you are hearing a lot of noise while towing is to potentially adjust how your trailer is loaded and increase the tongue weight to prevent movement on the ball mount and the coupler on the trailer ball. Please see the links that I have provided for details.

Ask the Experts about this Convert-A-Ball Ball Mounts
Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Trailer Hitch Extension Needed to Allow Tailgate to be Lowered with Trailer Attached to Vehicle
  • I would not recommend any type of extension with your towing setup. Extenders create more torque on the vehicle frame, hitch, drawbar, extender and hitch ball because of the extension, just like adding a pipe to the end of a breaker bar. This added torque reduces that weight capacity of all of the components in the system by 50 percent, so your vehicles 10 K capacity would be lowered to 5 K if a hitch extension is used. I would go with a long ball mount that is just long enough so you...

  • Loud Banging Noise Coming From the Hitch Area When Accelerating
  • Assuming that the hitch was properly installed, what you are experiencing is most likely your drawbar moving around in the receiver. This is a fairly common occurrence, the drawbar is meant to fit fairly snug into the receiver, but differences in manufacturing tolerances can allow for some movement. Using a cushioned ballmount like part # AMSC2 would help eliminate most of the noise you are experiencing. Cushioned Trailer Hitch Ballmounts protect the towing vehicle drive-line, hitch assembly...

  • Will a Cushioned Ball Mount Work with Surge Trailer Brakes
  • The cushion inside of the Convert-A-Ball cushioned ball mount # AMSC4 would have only a slight affect on the surge coupler on your trailer. You may not even notice it. The cushion is very dense and the more pressure that is put on it the firmer it gets. It would take more force to compress that cushion than to actuate the surge coupler. Cushioned ball mount # AMSC4 has a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop but there are other options if you need a different rise or drop to tow the trailer...

  • Will Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSC2 Work for a 3000 lb Sunline Camper
  • If the jerking you are referring to is the fore and aft movement of your existing ballmount in the receiver, then the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount would certainly help to reduce that. Though the ball mount has a 10,000 lb capacity, the cushioning would still be effective for a 3000 lb camper. If the jerking is primarily caused by slop, which is a ballmount that fits loosely in the receiver allowing some up/down and side to side play, an anti-rattle device like the Roadmaster Quiet...

  • What Ball Mount with 10k Capacity Fits Weigh Safe Scale Ball
  • The Convert a Ball Ball Mount part # AMSC8 has a 1 inch diameter ball hole and a platform thickness of 3/4 inches. This has quite a bit of drop so for a ball mount with a more standard amount of drop the part # AMSC2 would work great. Both are rated for 10k trailer and 2,000 lbs tongue weight.

  • Difference Between Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount AMSC2 and AMSC2HD
  • According to my Convert-a-ball representative, the # AMSC2 and # AMSC2HD both use the same cushion, so there won't be any difference in the cushioning ability of either ball mount. Since you have a trailer ball with a 1 inch diameter shank, I'd recommend using the # AMSC2 assuming that your grain wagon weighs less than 10,000 lbs when its loaded. The # AMSC2HD has a 1-1/4 inch diameter ball hole and a 14,000 lb capacity. If you click the provided links, you can see product demonstration...

These are available with a range of rise or drop to suit your trailer's coupler height, which you'll naturally want to be level when hitched.

  • In order to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount you need to take a couple measurements and do one simple calculation. To pick out the correct one you will need to measure the distance from the top of your hitch opening to the ground and then with your trailer sitting as level as possible measure from the bottom of the coupler to the ground. The difference between these two measurements will be what rise/drop ball mount you need. You will need to know what size ball you would...

  • Will a Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSC2 Benefit a 2000-lb Utility Trailer
  • Cushioned ball mounts like the Convert-A-Ball # AMSC2 are rated for trailer weights up to 10,000-lbs but they will still provide a benefit when used with lighter and smaller utility trailers like your 2000-lb-er. These use a polyurethane insert that acts like a spring to reduce shock, bounce and vibration. Since your trailer weight is about 2000-lbs you could use the Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount # CAB-UM rated for up to 5000-lbs. This adjustable cushioned ball...

  • Can a Cushioned Ball Mount be Used with a Surge Brake Coupler on a Trailer
  • You can use the cushioned ball mount # AMSC2 with a surge brake coupler. But it sounds like the coupler may need to be surfaced. You should get relatively smooth operation from it. To test it you can uncouple from the tow vehicle and try to move the actuator in and out. If you can do it by hand then there is definitely something wrong, likely the shock. If you can move it using only a lever of some sort (like a 2x4) but it does not slide back on its own or does so very quickly then that...

  • Longer Ball Mount Recommendation for Installation of Rock Guard
  • Instead of drilling an additional hole in the Ball Mount part # DTBM5200 I would recommend you go with a longer ball mount as drilling it will void the warranty and could potentially weaken the ball mount. For that I would recommend the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount # AMSC2 as it is exactly one inch longer and has the same rise/drop as the # DTBM5200.

  • How to Choose the Correct Ball Mount for 2003 Chevy Pulling Fish Shack
  • In order to choose the correct ball mount, there are a couple measurements you'll need to take. First, make sure both your Chevy and trailer are parked on level ground; you'll then want to measure from the ground to the top of your hitch receiver. Next, measure from the ground to the bottom of your coupler. If the height of your hitch is greater, you will need a ball mount with that amount of drop. If the height of the coupler is greater, you'll need a ball mount with that amount of...

  • Will a Convert-a-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount Fit with a Towtector Protection System
  • Most of the Convert-a-Ball cushioned ball mounts like # AMSC2 have around 5 inches between the hitch pin hole and the closest edge of the platform. From my research a Towtector system requires 1-1/2 inches of space to be installed. So it depends on how the ball mounts will fit into your vehicle's receiver. But with those measurements you should be able to determine if it will fit.

  • Recommendation to Reduce Chucking on Lightweight Tandem Cargo Trailer
  • Using a weight distribution system would be your best option if you don't have an aluminum frame. If you have a steel frame, I recommend using the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion # FA92-00-0450 along with the 2 inch hitch ball # 40038 and thin walled socket # ALL643216. If you have an aluminum frame you will need to check with the manufacturer about WD system use. Since the biggest issue is when you are towing empty, I recommend using a brake controller...
