Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - 36053 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number 36053. This is the Draw-Tite class II draw bar with a 5/8 inch rise or a 1 1/4 inch drop. This is a kit, so it is going to come with a 1/2 inch pin and clip. This is rated for up to 35,00 pounds of gross trailer weight, and up to to 300 pounds of tongue weight. It's going to use a ball with a 3/4 inch shank diameter. We know that by taking a measurement of the ball hold diameter, which measures 3/4 inch. This draw bar is designed to fit 1 1/4 inch by 1 1/4 inch class II hitches. The measurement from the center of the hitch pin hold to the center of the ball hold is going to give us a measurement of 9 3/4 inches.

With it installed in the rise position, it's going to give us a rise of 5/8 inch from the top of the shank to the ball platform. If we install this in the drop position, and do that same measurement, it's going to give us a drop of 1 1/4 inch. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear of the shank is going to measure 2 inches, and the platform here is going to give us a measurement of 2 inches by 5 1/4 inches. It does feature a nice solid shank. The way this works is you just slide the shank into the receiver 00:01:19 tube of your hitch, line up your pin holes, and insert the included 1/2 inch pin and clip. With everything secured, you'll be all set to go. That's going to do it for today's review of part number 36053.

This is the Draw-Tite class II draw bar with a 5/8 inch rise or a 1 1/4 inch drop. .

I believe my choice, with the help of etrailer, of this Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver, along with a few other items to go with it, such as the drawbar, hitch ball and wiring harness, was a good one for my 2017 Subaru Forester. I also have to compliment etrailer for their excellent video on how to install it. All together, it really made the purchase very easy and smooth. Thanks etrailer. 323643

Works perfectly. Needed a tow bar with very little rise and would clear the bumper. Thankfully, etrailer has a huge selection of equipment so you can find the right piece. 280862

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Ball Mounts
Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?

  • Compare the Class III Draw-Tite and Curt Class II Hitch for the 2006 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Both of the hitches you mentioned are good quality hitches, are easy to install and require no drilling or welding for installation. They have very similar towing cacities: 4000 lb for the Draw-Tite and 3500 lb for the Curt. I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Hitch, # 75560 for you 2006 Subaru Outback Wagon. This hitch provides you with a 2" receiver, which is why I believe it is the most popular hitch for your Outback Wagon. More trailers and hitch accessories (like bike racks and...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Nissan Rogue Compatible with Tailgate Lift Assist
  • For your 2018 Nissan Rogue SL, I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36542. This is a class II hitch receiver rated for up to 300 lbs tongue weight and well over the towing capacity of your vehicle at 3500 lbs. The ECU is not something we carry as most liftgates work just fine when you add an aftermarket hitch. The sensor that is often covered up at the hitch location just won't sense the movement, but either side of the hitch tube will work fine. If you have issues, then...

  • Class II Ball Mount Does Not Fit in a Class I Receiver Hitch
  • Class I and class II hitches both have an 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 inch receiver openings. However, a class I hitch has a towing capacity of 2000 lbs and a tongue weight of 200 lbs, a class II hitch has a towing capacity of 3500 lbs and a tongue weight of 300 lbs. Because of the differences in capacity, the hitch manufacturer designs the receiver shank depth in different sizes. The class I hitch is not as deep as a class II hitch, as you have discovered.

  • Fit of Draw-Tite Class II Receiver # 36280 on 2002 Saab 9-3 5 Door Hatchback
  • The Draw-Tite Class II hitch you referenced, part # 36280 will fit your 2002 Saab 9-3 5-door hatchback unless it is a Viggen sub-model and unless it has the rear air dam. You should not need to trim anything, but the installation instructions specify that a 1/2 inch diameter hole needs to be drilled in the rear of the passenger-side frame member. If you look at the provided diagram, you can see a cross section drawing showing how the receiver opening would sit in regard to the frame...

  • Trailer Hitch and Towing Accessories Recommendations for 2001 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The Draw-Tite # 36284 would be an excellent choice as long as your Outback Wagon isn't a Sport model. The best ball mount will depend on the coupler height of the trailer you're planning on using. I'll link you to an FAQ article that shows how to determine what rise/drop ball mount you'll need. Measure the distance from the inside top of the receiver tube to the ground. Then jack the trailer up so it's level, and measure the distance from the underside of the coupler to the ground.

  • Draw-Tite Hitch Recommendation for Ground Clearance on a 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Since the CURT Trailer Hitch # C12270 will sit below the rear bumper of your 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon it will reduce the ground clearance on your vehicle. However, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 36284 will give you a little more ground clearance as the area that goes around the exhaust tip will go above the tip on the Draw-Tite hitch. Whereas, it goes below the tip on the CURT hitch. Check out the picture I attached that shows both of these hitches installed on a similar vehicle as...

  • 2004 Subaru Legacy Outback Trailer Hitch with 2 Inch Receiver Opening
  • There is no Class III receiver hitch available for the 2004 Subaru Legacy. We do have an adapter that will fit the class II 1-1/4 inch receiver hitch, # 80303 that would allow you to use a 2 inch accessory in your class II receiver. When using an adapter, you must take into account that your tongue weight will be reduced by 50 percent so the weight of your bikes and rack could not exceed 100 or 125 pounds, depending on which hitch you purchase.

I have included a link to the installation instructions for reference.

  • Can Heat Shield on 2015 Subaru Forester be Trimmed and Left On Using Curt Class II Trailer Hitch
  • Though the instructions call for the removal of the heat shield for Curt hitch # C12100 it is up to you whether or not you want to trim it or not. So yes, you could trim the heat shield if you wanted to on your 2015 Subaru Forester. If you go with this Curt hitch and you will be using it for a bike rack or a cargo carrier then Curt requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050. The Draw-Tite hitch, # 36523, does not have this requirement. If you plan on doing any towing then for...

  • What Size Ball Mount To Use On 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • On how many ball mounts you need, if you have more than one trailer and they have different size couplers (1-7/8 inch and 2 inch) and you want a ball mount for each one, then two different ball mounts would work. If you didn't want two ball mounts, another option would be to use the Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Set with 1-7/8 inch, 2 inch Hitch Balls - Chrome, #901b, which would allow you to attach a post to one ball mount and then just change the hitch ball to whatever size you would...

  • Correct Ballmount for a 2008 Subaru Outback
  • Both Class I and Class II trailer hitches are tested and rated with the specific ball mount for that hitch, therefore the ballmount used must be the one that is recommended by the trailer hitch receiver manufacturer. If your vehicle is equipped with a factory Class I, or Class II I can make the following recommendations based on the manufacturer. Class I or Class II hitch that is manufactured by Curt I recommend the # C45519 ball mount. Class II hitch that is manufactured by...

  • Recommended Ball Mount And Trailer Connector Braket For Curt Hitch Receiver On 2017 Subaru Forester
  • For your 2017 Subaru Forester with Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" # C12100, I recommend the Draw-Tite Drawbar for 1-1/4" Hitches - 5/8" Rise, 1-1/4" Drop - 7" Long - 3.5K # 36051 simply because it is 2-3/4 inches shorter than # 36053 and you don't need that extra length when your hitch sits 3-1/2 inches back from the outer most part of the bumper. You will need a hitch ball like # 19258 for a 2 inch diameter ball or # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch diameter ball. For...

  • Hitch Needed for 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
  • I have confirmed with Draw-Tite that the Class II Receiver Hitch, part # 36188 is indeed the correct hitch for your 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. The wagon model does use a completely different hitch. To make the install a bit easier, I would recommend purchasing a couple of the fish wires (part # 80101-1) that will assist threading the hardware through the vehicle frame. You might also need the following: Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Trailer Connector, part # 18252 Draw Bar, part...

  • Can A Ball Mount be Flipped for the Correct Amount of Rise/Drop
  • The Curt Class I Drawbar part # C45019 can be installed right side up which will give you a rise of 5/8" or upside down which will give you a drop of 1-1/4". However, the above ball mount is only rated for use with trailers up to 2,000 lbs therefore I cannot recommend you use this ball mount to tow a 2,500 lb trailer. For a similar ball mount with equal rise/drop, I recommend the Draw Tite Drawbar part # 36053 which is rated for use with trailers up to 3,500 lbs. I have attached a review...

  • Recommendations on a Ball Mount and Lock to Fit a 2011 Honda Odyssey with a 12 inch Hitch Height.

You will need to measure, on level ground, your Honda's hitch height from the top of the receiver hitch opening to the ground. Next, measure from the bottom of your trailer's coupler to the level ground. The difference between these two numbers will determine the rise or drop you will need in your ball mount.

If it's the carrier route there's no solution for that. If you are wanting to tow a trailer you'll need the hitch # 36124, the ball mount # 36053, trailer wiring # 119178KIT and then for hitch balls # 19258 for if the trailer takes a 2 inch ball or part # 19254 for a 1-7/8 inch ball.

  • Hitch Ball Recommendation for Use with Ball Mount part # 36053

Both of these balls have shank diameters of 3/4 inches. Length of the threaded portion of the shank isn't super important but the two I mentioned are confirmed fits and both have different lengths.
