Convert-A-Ball ball mounts are designed with a polyurethane interior that helps to absorb road shock to limit bouncing and vibration while you tow over rough terrain. It also reduces the slamming and banging that occurs during stops and starts. This helps to protect your vehicle's driveline, your hitch assembly, and your trailer's contents while you're towing.

Video Transcript for Convert-A-Ball Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - AMSC2HD Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number AMSC 2HD. This is a Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount for 2-Inch Hitches. This is cushioned to help protect the tow vehicle's drive line and hitch assembly, as well as the trailer's contents. Here on the inside of our shank is a polyurethane interior that acts a shock absorber, which is really going to help reduce bounce and vibration. This ball mount will function in the drop or the rise position. It's constructed of a double-laminated powder-coated steel and the finish on this ball mount is really going to help it stand up well against rust and corrosion. It does fit into a 2" by 2" square trailer hitch receiver.

It's going to give us a towing capacity of 14,000 pounds with a maximum tongue weight capacity of 2000 pounds. The ball hole, this point here, is going to have a diameter of 1 1/4", so when choosing a hitch ball or an accessory that has a shank, you want to make sure that it doesn't exceed that 1 1/4" measurement. The way this works is you simply take your ball mount, slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up your pinholes, and you're going to need a 5/8" pin and clip, or pin and lock, to secure it in place. Those products are sold separately. You can refer to the ball mount's product page and look under the related items to view those products or you can go to our website and type in part number PC3 and it will refer you to this 5/8" pin that comes with a clip. With the ball mount in this position, it's going to give us a drop of 2".

That's measuring from the ball platform to the inside top edge of our receiver tube. It is available in the rise position. To take advantage of that, you simply take your ball mount and flip it over. If we perform that same measurement from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the top of the ball platform, it's going to give us a rise of right at 1". Couple other measurements to go over real quick.

The measurement from the center of our hitch pinhole to the center of the ball hole is going to measure 9 3/8". From the center of the hitch pinhole to the closest point of the ball platform, this back edge, is going to measure 4 7/8". From the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of our mount is going to measure about 2 3/4". That's going to complete today's review of part number AMSC 2HD. This is the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount for 2-Inch Hitches.

Super quick service. This is the second one I purchased, it was a gift. After I had the experience towing cross country with my jeep on a heavy 12K equipment trailer I couldn't believe how smooth this ball mount feels. No jerking over bumps or starting and stopping. Really a great part and worth the money. That's why I purchased another as a birthday gift for my son in law who has the same truck. 200699

This product is heavy duty and performs very well. It seemed a little pricey but I just finished an 1,100 mile trip using it and was very pleased. I have driven countless miles with a "normal" ball mount and there is no comparison. Buy it, use it, you won't regret it. 648123

Have had for the last year and used this hauling a work trailer that is from 6 to 10k. Really like it, can definitely tell the difference when using a regular style one. I also have a smaller one with 2" ball for towing my jeep. I figure these are cheap insurance for saving your driveline from the added wear of a jaring stop and go motion. 466714

This is the heavier duty version of cushioned hitch I am replacing. It's well made, fit and finish is excellent. I use it on a heavy duty Ford F-350 4x4 flat bed truck with a big V8 engine (460 c.i. or 7.5 liters). During the harvest season I pull two DMI 300 bu wagons tandem. A good quality cushioned hitch is a life savor with that much weight heaving back and forth going down the road. I highly recommend them they are well worth the extra $. Im sorry butbI don't have any pictures to share with you lol 380256

Just put it in my 2006 Ram 2500, it's a bit of a loose fit. Not sure if that is the design but my concern was that it would rattle going over bumps. My receiver has not been used before so it's not worn at all, it is stock. I put one wrap of Gorilla tape around it to snug it up and to keep it from rattling around. 297808

This product works exactly as described. Expect to have your trailer movement front to back smoothed with this. Our original ball tongue had a harsh feeling to the movement, this ball tongue softens that feeling. Of course, etrailer shipped the product very promptly and it arrived well packed. Every purchase with them has been flawless! 200000

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Recommended Trailer Hitch, Gooseneck Hitch, and Sway Control for 2007 Ram 3500 Flatbed Chassis
  • For your 2007 Dodge RAM 3500 HD Flat Bed Crew Cab with dually chassis there is not a B&W trailer hitch receiver available. Instead, I recommend you use the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # 41936 rated for 1,200 lbs tongue weight or 12,000 lbs towing. If you need a stronger receiver or one that can use weight distribution, I recommend the Draw Tite Class V # 41947 rated for 15,000 lbs towing without weight distribution or 16,000 lbs towing with...

  • Recommended Class V Hitch for 2006 GMC Sierra for Towing 10,800 lb Boat
  • I'd recommend upgrading that hitch, ASAP. If the hitch fails while you're towing, causing an accident, your insurance company would be well within their rights to deny you coverage which would leave you wide open to all kinds of legal liability. Not a pretty situation. Usually, Class V hitches do indeed have a 2-1/2 inch receiver tube. However, companies like Curt Manufacturing, Draw-Tite and B&W have developed Class V hitches with a 2 inch receiver tube that are strong enough to be...

  • 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...

  • Is it Okay to Use Cushioned Ball Mount with More Capacity than Needed
  • It really doesn't hurt to have a ball mount with more capacity than needed. If anything it's just added insurance that the ball mount wouldn't fail. For 14k capacity cushioned ball mounts we have the part # AMSC2HD which has a 2 inch drop, part # AMSC4HD which has a 4 inch drop and part # AMSC6HD which has a 6 inch drop.

  • Cushioned Ball Mount Recommendation with 1-1/4 inch Diameter Hitch Ball Hole
  • Sounds like you are looking for the part # AMSC2HD. This is the higher rated version of the part # AMSC2 which has a 14k capacity and a ball hole diameter of 1-1/4 inch.

  • Should Ball Mount Shanks Get Greased Before Installing In Trailer Hitch
  • You do not want to grease the shanks of ball mounts as the grease ends up attracting dirt which will wear on the hitch and ball mount as the two move around on/in each other. Your best option is to keep the hitch and ball mount as clean as possible.

  • 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...

  • Ball Mount Recommendations for a 2012 Ford Expedition Towing a Pontoon Boat or Seadoo Trailer
  • You have a couple of options. First, you can buy two ball mounts, one with the correct rise for the pontoon boat and one for the Seadoo trailer. Or, you can get one ball mount that use a 2-1/2 inch rise, # AMSC2HD, and that would be fine for both trailers. If you wanted to go with separate ball mounts, for a 3 inch, use # 40331. You do not have to use that extra sway control bracket welded to it. Another option is to use an adjustable ball mount like # MT70067. It has a max rise of...

  • Square Corner Ball Mounts Will Not Fit in Factory Trailer Hitch to 1993 Ford F-250 Diesel
  • What you are describing is a common problem with some factory hitches. You are correct, you do not want to grind away any of the metal of a ball mount to get it to fit. Removing some of the powder coat is acceptable provided you do not also remove any metal. What I recommend is looking for a ball mount with the more rounded corners. A ball mount like # BM20 has more rounded corners but it is rated for 10,000 pounds whereas the mount you referenced is rated for 16K. Cushioned ball...

  • How to Pick Out Ball Mount for 2014 Toyota Sienna Towing Boat Trailer
  • I wasn't able to find the coupler height of the trailer you are interested in so your best option would be to contact who you are buying it from and have them measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler lip with the trailer level. When we installed the Draw Tite # 76112 on a 2014 Toyota Sienna like yours we found that it measured 12 inches from the ground to the top of the hitch opening. If you compare that 12 inch figure to the coupler height you get for your trailer you'll...

  • Are Cushions in Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mounts Rated for the Same Capacity as the Ball Mount
  • The cushioned ball mount # AMSC2HD is given its rating based on extensive testing and the design of the components. That does include the cushions on the inside of the shank. So in other words if they tested it at 14K and the cushions failed they would not rate it for 14K. The ball mount meets Society of Automotive Engineers J684 specs. The cushion is going to provide more and more resistance the further or harder it is pushed against so it would not collapse or anything like that.

  • Using Cushioned Ball Mount with Surge or Hydraulic Trailer Brakes
  • You can certainly use a cushioned ball mount like the Convert-A-Ball # AMSC2HD along with a trailer that is equipped with a surge or hydraulic brake coupler. The dampening action of the cushioned ball mount will not affect how efficiently the surge coupler compresses and actuates the trailer brakes, but it will lessen the jarring felt when the ballmount moves against the hitch pin.

  • Recommendation for a 14,000 Pound Ball Mount for a 2011 Ford F-350 Dually
  • The closest ball mount we have to a 2 inch rise that is also rated for 14K is the Cushioned Ball Mount, # AMSC2HD. It has a rise of 1-1/2 inches and accepts a ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank. For a ball, you can use # 63836. Another option would be an adjustable ball mount, # C45900.

The ball has a 10K capacity, the ball mount has a 14K capacity.
