Video Transcript for Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned Adjustable Ball Mount Review

Today we are going to review and demonstrate the Convert A Ball Dual Cushion Adjustable Ball Mount, part number cab-um. Convert A Ball Adjustable Ball Mount is made in the USA and is constructed of powder coated steel with interior poly urethane cushions and has a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and a maximum tongue weight capacity of 500 pounds. It is designed to use hitch balls that have a 1 shank diameter, and is covered by a 2 year limited warranty. Inside the shank is a set of poly urethane cushions, and in the back and in the front they are going to help take some of the shock out of starting and stopping. In addition to this set of cushions theres a second set of cushions inside the vertical shank. This will help reduce the shock and noise of any vertical load bouncing.

It can be used in both the drop position, like this or flip over to be used in the rise position. Now we will go ahead and install it on our truck. Just like any other ball mount we will slide it into our hitch and line up the pin holes. Once lined up we will install our bolt all the way through and secure it with our clip. Again it could be used in the drop position like we have it, or you can pull the ball mount out of the hitch and flip it over for the rise position.

To adjust the drop or rise, remove the clip from this pin, pull the pin out, adjust the shank to where you need it, reinstall the pin, and reinstall the clip. And that does it for the Convert A Ball Adjustable Dual Cushioned Ball Mount, part number cab-um. .

Good product. Very substantial (heavy) and functions as advertised. Etrailer has great information on it which helped me make an informed decision. The vertical receiver part could have a built in anti-rattle device which would make it even better with the cushioning. It could have a set screw or bolt or be rubber lined or something. Overall great product and service. 388856

Two problems with this item. First, if you have any play between your receiver and the shank of this mount, you can't use most solutions to stop that rattle as the shank is solid. Next, there's also movement between the vertical pipe and the horizontal shank, enough that there is noise while towing, something I wouldn't have expected from a cushioned mount. I wound up swapping this with the cheaper 80412 that doesn't have these issues. 14511

A year has passed with my Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount and I have nothing but praise for this mount. Once you find the correct height to have a perfectly level trailer there's no need to adjust. The beauty lies in the cushioning! Towing a Yamaha AR190 (3200lb boat and trailer combo) is silent. Even over the bumpiest pavement the tow is smooth. There is no harsh slamming when braking or taking off from the boat ramp. I don't know why everyone isn't running one of these, I wouldn't run any other hitch mount PERIOD! If you're on the fence, get off and buy one, you will NOT regret it! 269958

Ive been using this mount since the summer of 2015 and love it. The bare steel inside is rusting and turning orange, but the mount works the same as I did day 1.

I use this mount to allow for clearance of my boat windshield under my 7' garage door. When I'm towing I raise it to level, then I drop to the lowest point when landing it in the garage. It's also really quiet with the cushioned mounts. The paint doesn't really hold up to the raising and lowering, but this would be way more expensive in stainless. Overall great product. And it is made in the USA which is rare. 256367

I needed an adjustable drop hitch to pull my new 13 foot Scamp camper with my F150 Raptor and this hitch does the job. As always with etrailer you get great service and the help videos are the best. Ordering from etrailer beats the heck out of driving all over town trying to find what you need and the fast and free shipping isn't bad either. 182907

All is good but for two things. I got a lot of clucking towing my travel trailer around town. The last hole ,furthest away from ball end,I think was drilled of center. The pin that was supplied would not pass. Used pin from another hitch company,that worked. 510056

Like the fact that I can move this hitch from my car to the wifes and set the hight to tow the trailer level. 207501



- CAB-UM
by:

This hitch is superior to most adjustables in that it leaves more clearance underneath than most competitive brands (less dragging) when in the "drop" position. It completely solved the problem (dragging, gouging roadway in dips, etc.) when towing with my motorhome with a high hitch receiver. Also, it's considerably heavier duty than appears in the illustrations. 193539

I've had the cushioned draw bar on my Silverados for many years and love them. Brian from etrailer had this latest version to me 2 days after I ordered it, that was extremely fast . Thanks Brian ! This is for for my up coming 700 mile trip up North pulling a trailer with my sons new Side by side ATV. This trip should be a breeze with this new hitch. We haven't put the hitch on yet , but I don't forsee any problems thanks etrailer for you're help ! 193217

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


  • Will there be a lot of Rattle with the MaxxTow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount
  • Since there are 2 places of movement (at the hitch and where the ball attaches) on ball mount # MT70380 it can have more rattle than more fixed ball mounts when not towing. When under load there would be less rattle due to the weight of the trailer pushing down on the ball. There isn't a good way to eliminate rattle where the balls attach to the shank. Cushioned adjustable ball mount # CAB-UM would have less rattle since it is cushioned both vertically and horizontally but it is rated...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Determine Correct Ball Mount Rise or Drop for Towing a Trailer with a 17 Inch Coupler Height
  • Normally trailer coupler height is around 17 inches, from the ground to the bottom of the coupler, and most hitch manufacturers design their hitches to work with a ball mount that will end up very close to this measurement. I am including a link to an instruction page detailing how to measure for the correct ball mount and how to measure the ball mount. With the Curt Trailer Hitch, item # 13555, for your 2008 Honda CRV the recommended ball mount is the Draw-Tite Ball Mount, item # 2753,...

  • 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...

  • Minimum Rise for Convert-A-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount CAB-UM
  • The minimum rise for adjustable ball mount # CAB-UM is approximately 2-1/2 inches. But unless you tow multiple trailers and need the adjustability of this ball mount I recommend a fixed ball mount with between 2 and 3 inches of rise. Covert-A-Ball has # AMSC4HD or # AMSC4, both with a 2-3/4 inch rise, if you want a cushioned ball mount. If the ball mount does not have to be cushioned we have # C45155 which comes with a 2 inch ball installed and with a 2-1/4 inch rise. The ball is...

  • Available Cushioned Adjustable 2-Inch Ball Mount
  • We do offer a cushioned 2-inch ball mount exactly like what you described. The Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned 5K Adjustable Ball Mount # CAB-UM not only provides cushioning for a smoother ride but it also adjustable in height to let it easily accommodate different trailer heights. You can use 2-inch hitch ball # 63845.

  • Will the Convert-A-Ball Dual Cushioned Ball Mount Work at Max Rise on a 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled the Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount, # CAB-UM, and took some measurements for you. The most critical measurement is going to be the measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole, to the back of the ball platform, which is 6 inches, and the measurement from the top of the receiver shank to the top of the ball platform, which is 8-1/2 inches, in the max rise position, see photo link.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 1979 Ford F-250
  • I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch Recevier # 37133 for your 1979 Ford F-250. This hitch will fit either the standard bumper or the deep drop bumper. It will however, not fit if you have lower rear fascia or a rollpan or tube bumper. It is a bolt on installation but does require some drilling. For trailer wiring you can use the Tekonsha Wiring Harness # 18252. This will add a 4-pole onto the back of your truck and includes quick-splice connectors to make it easier...

  • Will SoftRide Anti-Rattle # SR15219 Work With MaxxTow Adjustable Ball Mount # MT70067
  • It is not recommended to deviate from the original manufacturer components because the combination has not been tested together for fit, compatibility and safety. With that being said, I went to the warehouse and measured the holes of the MaxxTow # MT70067 channel portion and the diameter is 11/16 of an inch and the diameter of the pin that comes in the package is a 1/2 inch. The SoftRide Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin # SR25219 has a pin diameter of 5/8 inch, which is 1/16th inch smaller...

  • Recommended Ball Mount For a 2011 GMC Terrain Towing Several Different Height Trailers
  • As long as your 2011 GMC Terrain has the standard size wheel and tire combination on it, the Draw-Tite Ball Mount, item # 2923, would be the most versatile ball mount that is not adjustable. We do carry many different styles of adjustable ball mounts that may be a better choice if you tow several different height trailers, see link. One of these that I like to recommend is the Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount - 7 inch Rise to 9 inch Drop - 5,000 lbs, item # CAB-UM....

  • Can Convert-A-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount # CAB-UM Be Used with 5,000 lb Trailer
  • Weight capacities are designed to tell you how much weight it can be used with and have it still be totally safe. The Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount # CAB-UM has a 5,000 lb weight capacity. If you are absolutely sure you'll never be over 5,000 lbs this will work well for you and it would not be pushing it to the limit.

  • What is the Diameter of the Adjustment Pin on Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Adjustable Ball Mount CAB-UM
  • Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount - 7" Rise to 9-1/2" Drop - 5,000 lbs Item # CAB-UM uses a 5/8 inch diameter pin for the adjustment part of the ball mount. This is the same as the regular hitch pin hole. The overall width at the adjust part is wider than the shank on the ball mount so if you are looking at locks I recommend # RH5-XL which has a useable span of 3-5/8 inches and you can order more than one keyed the same by selecting the keyed alike option on the page....

  • Recommendation for Easy Ball Change on the Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount
  • There is not a replacement ball mount available for the Convert-A-Ball Adjustable Cushioned Ball Mount, CAB-UM, but there is what I believe is a better solution to your dilemma. The Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set, item # 906B, would give you the ability to change out balls just as quickly as changing out the adjustable ball mount and would be much easier to store in the vehicle. This kit has 2-5/16 inch and 2 inch balls. If you need 1-7/8 inch and 2 inch balls the Convert-A-Ball...

  • All of the aftermarket hitches we offer for your 2014 Ford F-150 also have the same 2-inch size receiver tube and this is the size that is compatible with the cushioned ball mount you referenced, Convert-A-Ball # AMSC4.

  • Yes, you can use either piece of the Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount, # CAB-UM, in the rise of drop position to find the configuration that is best for you. I have included a link to a video review of this ball mount for you.

  • Could Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount do 2 inch of Drop
  • If you used the shank upside down with the part # CAB-UM you would get very close to a drop of 2 inches, but in reality it would be more like 2-1/4 inches. You'd have to flip the shank up side down but still use the ball mount platform where you insert it from below.
