Note: Ford OEM hitches have a tighter/different radius on their 2-1/2 inch receiver tubes. To accommodate the OEM Ford 2-1/2 inch hitch, the corners of a ball mount, shank or reducer sleeve may need to be sanded down to slide into the hitch. Do not remove any more material than necessary. Simply removing the paint or powder-coat is often sufficient. Never use a grinder to knock-down the corners, which may remove too much material and will also heat the accessory and could compromise the product's structural integrity. This is especially the case with cast accessories like larger weight distribution shanks.

Video Transcript for Reese Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - 45325 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Reese tri-ball mount for 2-1/2" hitches, part number 45325. This tri-ball mount includes three different-size hitch balls on a hollow square shank. It allows you to tow trailers with different coupler sizes. It has a durable hollow steel contraction featuring a black powder-coat finish. And to switch ball sizes, all you would need to do is just remove it from your hitch receiver and flip it to whichever ball you want to use. This is the 2-5/16" ball, this is the 2" ball, and this is the 1-7/8" ball.

And again, just like any other ball mount, you would slide it into your receiver, match up the holes, and then you would take your pin and clip. Now this pin and clip is not included with this ball mount; however, you can get it right here at etrailer.com, part number PC3. Once you have the holes lined up, just slide that in there and clip it off, and you're good to go. Now, if you wanted to use one of the smaller hitch balls, just unclip that. So you want to use the 2" ball, flip it over to this side, slide that in, and then you would put the pin in, clip that off, and now you have a 2" hitch ball.

For further security, we also have a line of hitch locks right here at etrailer.com. Taking a look at some of the dimensions and specs for this ball mount. Once again, this does fit 2-1/2" trailer hitch receivers. The towing capacity for the 1-7/8" ball is 2,000 lbs., for the 2" ball is 10,000 lbs., and the towing capacity for the 2-5/16" ball is 14,000 lbs. Tongue weight for each: tongue weight for 1-7/8" ball, 200 lbs.; 2" ball, 1,000 lbs.; 2-5/16" ball, 1,400 lbs.

of tongue weight capacity. Taking a look at some lengths. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the 2-5/16" ball is 7-1/2". The center of the hitch pin hole to either the 1-7/8" ball and the 2" ball is 8-1/2". Also, there is no drop or rise with this item.

As you can see, it is completely even from the hitch receiver. And finally, there is a limited lifetime warranty for this ball mount. That should do it for our Reese tri-ball mount for 2-1/2" hitches, part number 45325.

My newer Chevy K3500 has a 2 1/2 inch square receiver so I was able too get rid of my 2" ball mount that was almost too heavy to lift and replace it with a new Reese tri- ball mount with a 14,000 lb Gross towing capacity and weighs less than 12 pounds. Thanks to Cathy H. and Chris W. at etrailer.com for finding the right equipment for my needs. 190473

The hitch fit my 2006 Ford F550 perfectly. I have a commercial receiver and the drawbar slid in with no issues. Nice and tight with no rattle. I have a variety of trailers with different ball sizes and there have been no issues using any of the ball sizes on the hitch. Along with the pin and clip that I ordered, the assembly makes a nice convenient package for my towing needs. Service was fast and the representatives were very helpful. I would recommend this for anyone having a 2 1/2 inch receiver and the need of multiple trailer ball sizes. 488611

I recently purchased a tri ball hitch and the ordering process online was very easy to navigate and the shipping time was very quick. I am pleased with my decision to buy from etrailer. 295696



- 45325
by:

I LIKE IT! Instructions indicated that if using in a FORD receiver that some paint removal and perhaps a bit of grinding may be required. That is true. I periodically grease the shaft and a bit of persuasion is required to install and remove it as it is quite snug. Snug suits me just fine as there is No rattling ,AND.. nobody without a bar or hammer is going to steal it. I use this on my FORD 350 diesel and pull 14,000 lbs regularly. 291090

Couldn't believe product was actually manufactured by Reese. I had to bevel the leading edge with a bench grinder, grease both the the receiver and hitch, then drive it in with a 5 pound sledge. Then the pin holes didn't align properly to the receiver. When one hole was aligned, the one on the opposite side was off slightly in a vertical plane. So I also had to drive the pin in with the sledge. When I remove it, a similar process will be required. My vehicle is a 2013 F250 and another class 5 hitch I have fits perfectly. 207319

I recently upgraded from a 2005 to a 2011 GMC 2500HD and found out that the receiver for this year is 2.5 inches. I found this Reese Tri-Mount on etrailer for the right price and it arrived after only 2 business days. I haven't towed with it yet but the fit and finish is top notch and the height is perfect. My truck still has the stock 265/70 17s. I also purchased the extra long receiver Deadbolt hitch pin that locks. It fits perfect and I now don't have to worry about someone stealing the hitch. Customer service at etrailer is the best of any online retailer that I have purchased from, very impressive. 179550

Ask the Experts about this Reese Ball Mounts

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Hitch Ball Needed to Tow a 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 19RD
  • I was able to look up a manual online for your 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 19RD and it said (on page 3-7) that depending on your model your coupler will either need a 2" or a 2-5/16" hitch ball. I recommend using a multi hitch ball like the straight # 45325 or the adjustable # BWTS10049B. Both of these include a 1-7/8", 2", and a 2-5/16" hitch ball which will come in handy for various towing applications. You also need a hitch pin & clip # PC3 or a locking hitch pin like part # 63232 to secure...
    view full answer...

  • Why Does the Reese Tri-Ball Mount # 45325 Hard to Fit in Factory Ford Hitch
  • The issue you are running into is that the Ford 2-1/2 inch hitches have unpredictable radiuses on the corners of the hitch opening. It's only on their 2-1/2 inch hitches, but the corners of the hitch opening on some factory Ford hitches end up so round that square shank accessories don't like to easily fit. The solution is to try and remove the powder coat on the shank of the accessory to allow it to install easier. We thought they had gotten better with their more recent 2-1/2 inch...

  • How To Prevent Trailer Theft Beyond Hitch and Coupler Locks
  • One easy way to prevent someone from removing the ball would be to use a ball mount that has the ball attached (welded) to the shank. That way you won't have to weld a ball to a shank that isn't meant for that type of modification. Some examples include # 45325 or something adjustable that locks like # DTALBM6600. A Wheel lock such as # RA-25 would also be a good idea. The trailer would not be able to be moved with a wheel lock like this on it. And the ball mount/ball may be enough...

  • Why Do Ford 2-1/2 inch Hitches Have Fit Issues with Aftermarket Hitch Accessories
  • For whatever reason the Ford 2-1/2 inch receiver hitches have round corners that do not allow most aftermarket hitch accessories to work. Since you said your hitch is 100 percent custom I do not believe this will be a problem for you since this issue is isolated to only Ford hitches. The Reese Tri-Ball Mount # 45325 should work well for you, I attached a review for this product for you to check out also.
    view full answer...

  • Which Trailer Ball Size for 27 Foot Long Travel Trailer
  • A trailer of the size you mention would either use a 2 inch or a 2-5/16 inch ball. A 2 inch ball can have a capacity up to 8000 lbs, while the capacity of a 2-5/16 inch ball can range between 6,000 and 30,000 lbs. The 2-5/16 inch ball would be more likely, but I couldn't say for sure without knowing the weight of the trailer. Using a tri-ball mount like the # 45325 you referenced might be your best bet. The required ball size should be stamped into the metal on the trailer coupler.

  • Availability of Tri-Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch Hitch that is Steel
  • We have the Reese Tri-Ball part # 45325 which is a fit for 2-1/2 inch hitches, has all three hitch ball sizes, and has a 14k capacity when used with the 2-5/16 inch ball. It has a hollow shank but it's still very heavy duty. If they made a solid steel shank in this configuration it would weigh more than anyone would want to deal with.

  • How To Determine Ball Mount and Ball Size To Tow 2003 Thor Citation
  • The size of the ball that you need to tow your 2003 Thor Citation Travel Trailer is determined by what size coupler is on the trailer. More than likely you will need a 2" or 2-5/16" ball. The required ball size should be stamped onto the coupler. Another thing to take into consideration is the rise or drop that may be needed to tow the travel trailer level with your vehicle. I recommend to use an adjustable ball mount EZ Hitch Adjustable part # AM3290 which features a 2" ball and 2-5/16"...

  • Would Reese Tri Ball part # 45325 Work For Towing 7,900 lb Trailer
  • The Reese Tri Ball Mount part # 45325 has more than enough capacity for a 7,900 lb trailer as long as the trailer uses a 2 inch or 2-5/16 inch ball (it will). The capacity for the 2 inch ball is 10k and the capacity for the 2-5/16 inch ball is 14k. This ball mount also has zero rise or drop. For it to be ideal for your setup the height of the hitch from the top of the opening to the ground would need to be the same as from the bottom of the coupler to the ground on the trailer when it's...

  • What Size Hitch Ball Does Coupler of 2011 Forest River Roo 21SS Take
  • I did some checking and it looks like your 2011 Forest River Roo 21SS has a coupler on it designed for a 2 inch ball. That said, someone could have replaced the coupler with a different size as that's not uncommon so what you can do is go out and look at the coupler on your trailer and you'll see the size stamped on it. The Reese Tri-Ball part # 45325 that you referenced has these two sizes plus a 1-7/8 inch ball.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2014 Jayco Eagle 314TSBH
  • I looked up your 2014 Jayco Eagle 314TSBH and it has an unloaded tongue weight of 906 lbs so you'd want a higher capacity weight distribution than a 1,000 lb tongue weight setup. Also when it's unloaded the trailer weighs right at 8,000 lbs and can weight up to 10,750 lbs when full loaded so you'd be looking at a tongue weight of most likely around 1,100 lbs or more. Ideally the trailer's tongue weight falls right into the middle of the range of the system. So for that the Reese Steadi...
