Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - 40343 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Drawtite ball mount for 2-inch hitches. This ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank slides into the receiver tube of your hitch. Then the ball platform provides the inaudible 00:00:13 location for your hitch ball. Hitch balls are sold separately. If you're in need of one you can find them here at etrailer.com.

This unit is going to feature a slanted back that makes it easier to slide into your hitch. It's made from a sturdy steel construction, so it's got a nice strong, durable design. It does have a hollow shank. It's also going to feature a powder coat finish that's going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion. It's going to make sure that the unit lasts a long time, and looks good for a long time. You can use this in either the drop position, or in the rise position to ensure level towing.

When installing it in your hitch it is going to require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock to get the unit fully secured. Those items are sold separately, also if you're in need of one of those, they're available here ate etrailer.com. We carry a variety of those to choose from. The pin holes on the unit will accept a standard 5/8-inch diameter pin. This is designed for a 2-inch by 2-inch trailer hitch receiver.

It's going to feature a gross towing weight capacity of 6,000 pounds with a maximum tow weight capacity of 600 pounds. A few measurements that I want to go over with you real quick. If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole, that's going to give us a measurement of right around 10 1/2-inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the ball platform, so to this point up here, that closest point we can see that's going to measure about 6 1/2-inches. Now when using this in the drop position, it's going to give you a drop of about 2-inches. That's from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch, or the top of the shank, to the top of the ball platform.

With it in the rise position doing that same measurement, it's going to give you a rise of about 3/4 to 1-inch. The ball hole diameter, that's the diameter right here, that's going to give us a diameter of 1-inch. Take a measurement of the draw bar width. It's going to measure 2 1/2-inches, and then that thickness is going to measure 3/4-inch. It's a very simple installation. All you've got to do is slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch. Push it in until you get your pin holes to line up. Then simply secure it with a hitch pin and clip, or a hitch lock. That's going to do it for today's look at the Drawtite ball mount for 2-inch hitches.

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Ball Mounts

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Will Using a Longer Ball Mount Give Me Less Tongue Weight Capacity
  • Fortunately, this is a case where any lost tongue weight capacity will be negligible (unless you add a severely long ball mount). But you are correct; adding adapters or extensions can cut your tongue weight capacity by 50 percent in many cases. But the good news is for this application, carrying a towing bike rack, you will not have to worry about losing tongue weight capacity. I recommend the # 40343 Ball Mount. It measures 10-1/2 inches from center hole to center hole. If you need...

  • What is the Pin Hole to Ball Hole Length of Draw-Tite Ball Mount 40343
  • Ball mount # 40343 was measured when the video for it was made (which was recently). As you can see in the picture I have included we found that the distance from the center of the pin hole to the center of the ball hole is 10-1/2 inches. If you want something even longer we have # 80232 which measures 15-3/4 inches from the center of the pin hole to the center of the ball hole! I have linked a video review of this ball mount as well.

  • Recommended Ballmount Rise and Drop for a 2004 Jeep Liberty
  • The recommended ballmounts for the 2004 Jeep Liberty with have a rise of 3/4 of an inch, and a drop of 2 inches. This would put your hitch ball at the most common trailer size, but to confirm it would work for your application I do recommend measuring. To find the required rise or drop for your particular trailer, you would first measure from the ground to the top of your hitch opening. If a hitch is not yet installed, you can also get close by measuring from the ground to a point...
