Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - 36078 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number 36078. This is the Draw-Tite Class II Draw Bar with 4 3/4" drop. This is designed to fit 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" Class II receiver style hitches. You can see here on the back side that we do have a nice solid shank, enclosed here. This is going to use a ball with a 3/4" shank diameter. We can find that out simply by taking a measurement of the ball hole diameter, which is going to measure 3/4".

If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole, that's going to give us a measurement of 7 1/2". This system is going to provide a 4 3/4" drop and that's from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the ball platform. This is rated for up to 3500 pounds of gross trailer weight and up to 300 pounds of tongue weight. Another great feature is that your pin and clip, those are both included. It also has a nice black finish on it, so it is going to stand up well against rust and corrosion.

A couple other measurements to go over, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank is going to measure about 1 7/8". From the center of the hitch pin hole to this portion here is going to give us a measurement of 2 5/8". The way this works is you simply slide this portion into the hitch on your vehicle. You want to slide it in until your pin holes line up with one another. Then you can take your half inch pin and clip, place it into position, and secure it with the clip on the other side. The ball platform is going to give us a width of right at 2".

That's going to do it for today's review of part number 36078. This is the Draw-Tite Class II Draw Bar. .

Needed a drop 1 1/4" ball mount for a small utility trailer with a very low tongue. #36078 fit the bill very nicely. Quality was better than advertised, heavy material, thick tough finish. Service was excellent. Package was damaged in transit, product was missing. A quick email and a replacement was on the way immediately. Arrived overpacked and reinforced, in a timely manner. Definitely a company I'll do business with in the future. 456851

A drawbar is a drawbar and it works or fails. The finish and paint on this one was badly applied and it does not look crisp and precise, but this has nothing to do with function which is fine. 137972

I have bought trailering products from Etrailer.com in the past and have always been pleased with them. This time I purchased a ball mount. The groove around the end of the ball mount keeper pin, instead of a hole, is an excellent idea. Plus the time from purchase to delivery is very fast. Thanks Etrailer 66889

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Ball Mounts

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Class II Ball Mount with 1-1/4" Shank Needed that has a 5" or 6" Rise/Drop
  • I am attaching a link to all of our Class II ball mounts that fit a 1-1/4" receiver opening. Since adjustable ball mounts are geared towards vehicles that tow regularly, like pickups, they don't make any that fit a 1-1/4" receiver. Among the linked ball mounts we have the Draw-Tite # 36078 which has a 5" drop or the Draw-Tite # 36065 which has a 5" rise, both of which are rated for 3,500 lbs. Either of these ball mounts are compatible with the 1-7/8" Hitch Ball # 19256 rated at 2,000...

  • Brake Controller Installation in 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon with Factory Tow Package
  • Brake controller installation in your 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon with factory tow package will be a straightforward process and we offer plenty of resources to help you through the install steps. Since your Outback wagon has the factory tow package it should have a 4-pole flat trailer connector at the rear bumper. Please see the linked photo for illustration. If you have a 4-pole on the car now all you need to add is a brake controller install kit # ETBC7 and the controller of your choice. The...

  • Class II Ball Mount With 3-1/2 Inch To 5 Inch Drop For Ford Explorer
  • For a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver on your Ford Explorer, we have two ball mounts that fall within the 3-1/2 to 5 inch drop range. The first one is the Draw-Tite Class II Ball Mount, part # 36078. This ball mount has a 4-3/4 inch drop and measures 7-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball mount hole. It has a tongue weight rating of 300 pounds and a towing weight capacity of 3500 pounds. The pin and clip are included with this ball mount. The second ball...

  • Distance From Hitch Pin Hole to Hitch Ball Hole
  • Good question. I went out and measured the ball mount, part # 36078, myself. It's 7-1/2 inches from the pin hole the hitch ball hole. You can actually see the measurement taken in the video I linked for you. If you don't have a hitch ball to fit already part # 19254 is a 1-7/8 ball and part # 19258 is a 2 inch ball. Both have a 3/4 inch diameter shank to fit the ball mount.

  • Hitch Ball Recommendations for Ball Mount 36078
  • There isn't a specific length ball shank required for ball mount # 36078. It just has to be long enough to have 3 threads or more exposed beyond the nut when tight. If you need a 2 inch ball # C40018 is a popular option. For a 1-7/8 inch ball # C40001 is a popular option.

  • Why Must the Curt Class II Drawbar # C45014 be Used in the Rise Position Only
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said the Class II Drawbar, # C45014, has not been tested for use in the drop position. They only test it for the rise position. If you were to use this ball mount in the drop position and it fails, the warranty would be voided and you could be responsible for all damages. If you need a Class II drawbar with a 5 inch drop, I recommend looking at the Draw-Tite Class II Drawbar, # 36078. Keep in mind, most Class I and Class II trailer hitches are only...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2008 Ford Explorer with Class II Trailer Hitch and Multiple Trailers
  • Since you are towing multiple trailers, they probably do not all have the same coupler height to tow them level. If that is the case than a fixed ball mount would not be the best choice. But if all the trailers do have the same coupler height then going with either ball mount # BM96 or # 36078 would be fine. The main difference between these 2 ball mounts is the rise and drop each offers. Ball mount # BM96 has a 5-1/2 inch rise or 6 inch drop. Ball mount # 36078 has a 4-3/4 inch drop...

  • Ball Mount for a Class II Factory Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Ford Escape
  • The ball mount that is recommended for aftermarket Class II Draw-Tite hitches is # 36051, or for Curt hitches for your 2012 Ford Escape you'd use # C45521. You will want to consult the vehicle owners manual and/or Ford though because on many Class II hitches you have to use the ball mount specified by the hitch manufacturer. If they don't specify then yes, you could use # 36078. Either ball mount accepts a ball with a 3/4 inch diameter shank. For a 1-7/8 inch you can use # A-80 (rated...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2004 Chevy Monte Carlo with Additional Rise
  • The ball mount you would have bought with the hitch for your 2004 Chevy Monte Carlo # 36292 would have had a 3 inch rise. So for a ball mount that has a 5 inch rise you'd want the part # 36078 which would give you the additional height you need. For a 2 inch ball for use with this you'd want the part # 19258.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 5 Inch Drop On 2007 Ford Explorer
  • You are correct that 5 inch drops are really difficult to find. We have no fixed mount ball mounts that fit a 2 inch receiver, only one for a 1-1/4 inch receiver # 36078 and the rest are for 2-1/2 inch receivers. I've attached that link to assist. It is not ideal to be high or low, but if you have to choose one, then I recommend the Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # 2753 to be a little higher along with hitch ball # 63845. For a more ideal towing that will also allow you 2 hitch...

  • Using a 36078 Class II Drop Drawbar as a Rise Instead of a Drop
  • The drawbar you mentioned is not intended to be used in the rise position and would only create a 3-1/2 inch rise. We do carry a 5 inch and a 3-1/8 inch rise drawbar (see links below) that will fit the Class II hitch. These drawbars all have a tongue weight capacity of 300 lbs and a towing capacity of 3500 lbs. Keep in mind that if you need a significantly higher or lower drawbar to tow (you are not able to use the manufacturer's recommended drawbar for the hitch), you will void the manufacturer's...

  • Is there a 1-1/4 Inch Ball Mount with 4 to 5 Inches of Drop
  • Ball mount # 36078 has a drop of 4-3/4 inches. This ball mount is designed for Class II hitches with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. If you have a Class I hitch this ball mount may not fit depending on the brand of the hitch. For a Class I hitch we have several ball mounts that offer a 3-1/4 inch drop: # C45022, # C45026, and # C45027. Also keep in mind that the tongue weight of the trailer will pull down on the back of the vehicle some so that can help in keeping the trailer level.

  • Recommended Ball Mount and Trailer Wiring Harness for 2015 Toyota RAV4 AWD Limited
  • Starting with the trailer wiring harness, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118578 for your 2015 Toyota RAV4 AWD Limited. This harness is custom-fit for your vehicle and will install by connecting directly to existing ports located behind the trim panels in the cargo area on the driver and passenger side. I have attached an installation video on your 2015 RAV4 that you can use for reference. Then for the ball mount, the closest option we have available to the...

  • 1-1/4-Inch Ball Mount with 4-Inches of Drop
  • Some lighter-duty ball mounts such as the Class I Draw-Tite # 3594 cannot be used in the drop position because there would not be enough room for the coupler to get around the hitch ball. The short part of the shank would prevent this. For a 1-1/4-inch ball mount with about 4-inches of drop you can use Class II ball mount # 36078 or Class I ball mount # 3593 with 2-3/4-inches of drop, or # C45022 with 3-1/4-inches of drop.

  • Parts to use a Class 3 or Higher hitch with a Class 1 or 2 Tow Load
  • If you already have 1-1/4 inch ball mount that are the proper size for your trailer, you can use a reducer sleeve like part # HT02. If you want to continue using the ball you have, you would need a ball mount with a 3/4 inch ball shank diameter hole, which will be Class 1 and 2 ball mounts and would again need reducer sleeve part # HT02. If you have to buy a new ball mount since you switched to a 2 inch hitch and may need more drop, I would go ahead and buy a 2 inch ball mount and...
