Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at a Brophy 50mm hitch ball. This hitch ball provides a connection point for your trailer's coupler. It's made from a durable steel construction with a nice chrome finish so it's rust resistant and that is polished. The polished finish provides a very nice appearance. You'll notice on the sides it does feature the wrench flats. These allow you to use a wrench to hold the ball in place during installation.

Makes installation much easier. Lock washer and the nut are included. Now if you're in need of a ball mount you can check out some options at etrailer.com. We have a variety to choose from. Again, the ball diameter is 50mm.

The shank has a diameter of 1in and has a length measurement of 2 1/8in. The weight capacity on this unit, it's engraved right here at the top of the ball, it's 8,000lbs. That's going to do it for today;s look at the Brophy 50mm hitch ball.

Excellent product and a perfect fit for my Trailer Metric Hitch Coupler, I love the 1" diameter Shank instead of the original 3/4" with spacer 272233

All companies should be ran like Etrailers, I needed a 50mm ball, 1 7/8 to small 2" to big...for my car hauler. Etrailers received the 50mm on Monday, shipped it out the same day and I received it this Thursday morning. Guess what, when calling you actually have a person on the other line... I'd like to give a special thanks to Shery T and Chris. Ernest J 297885

Outstanding hard to find 50 mm hitch ball. This ball is pretty much a European standard for smallish travel trailers like the Hymer or Eriba . etrailer was the only provider to offer 50mm balls and were absolutely helpful with the order. etrailer are pros, I recommend them to all U.S. Veterans ....you won’t be disappointed!

Great product. I have a European trailer which requires a 50mm hitch ball. Etrailer was the only company I found in the USA which offered a 50mm hitch ball. I just returned from a 2,500 mile trip with no issues with this product. I highly recommend Etrailer for quality products. 578580

We specialize in supporting the sailplane and soaring community. Unfortunately, the sport is dominated by European manufacturers and a lot of the sailplane trailers and peripheral equipment use metric components. The 50mm Hitch Ball allows our customers to avoid changing they trailer hitches to a 2 inch hitch ball as well as allow them to use sailplane towbars without changing out the standard couplers that come with them. 402666

Product as stated, excellent service and fast shipping. I'm stationed in Germany (APO AE address) and the item was shipped via USPS Priority Mail. I already had a class 3 6,000 lb U.S. style hitch, so the item 1 inch diameter shank fit perfect in the 1 inch hole that is on the hitch. The ball is 50mm so it is a perfect fit for all of the European trailers. Now all I need is an adapter from the 7 pin U.S. that is on my U.S. Spec 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee to go to the 13 pin EU plug for European trailers. A guy that I work with has already made one for his Jeep, so I'm waiting for him to make me one. Very satisfied with the etrailer.com and would buy from again. Thanks, Jeff 363454

Ask the Experts about this Brophy Hitch Ball

Do you have a question about this Hitch Ball?


  • Recommendation for a 50mm Ball to Use with European Thule Bike Rack
  • The 50mm ball size is probably the most common across the pond so I am certain your European EasyFold fits that size. The US version, # TH903202, just fits into a 1-1/4 or 2 inch hitch receiver so the 50mm ball doesn't come up much. For a 50mm ball I recommend # 63912 since it costs a little less than the Brophy but you could use # EH53C-C as well.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch, Gooseneck Hitch, and Sway Control for 2007 Ram 3500 Flatbed Chassis
  • For your 2007 Dodge RAM 3500 HD Flat Bed Crew Cab with dually chassis there is not a B&W trailer hitch receiver available. Instead, I recommend you use the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # 41936 rated for 1,200 lbs tongue weight or 12,000 lbs towing. If you need a stronger receiver or one that can use weight distribution, I recommend the Draw Tite Class V # 41947 rated for 15,000 lbs towing without weight distribution or 16,000 lbs towing with...

  • What Hitch Ball Size Do They Use in Europe
  • We currently carry four different size hitch balls which are 1-7/8", 50mm, 2", and 2-5/16". The most common hitch ball size in Europe is 50mm for which you can use part # 63912 if you need a 3/4" diameter shank or part # EH53C-C if you need a 1" diameter shank. In order to be sure you are using the correct size hitch ball you will want to look at the top of the trailer coupler as it will be stamped into this location.

  • Recommended Ball Mount and Hitch Ball for European Trailers
  • Thank you for your service. I would be happy to make some recommendations for you. An American style ball mount will work fine when we pair it with a 50mm Hitch Ball on a local trailer in Germany as long as you have a U.S. style trailer hitch on your vehicle with a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver. The look is different, but the function is the same. I'd suggest the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount, # MT70067. This will give you up to a 10 inch drop or a 8 inch rise to allow you to...

  • Best Towing Setup for a 2018 Volvo XC90
  • For your 2018 Volvo XC90, I recommend using the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76194 because this trailer hitch unlike the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13233 will not require any drilling into the frame which is not exactly something most want to do on a brand new vehicle. The install process will be a bit more challenging but the limited vehicle modifications makes it well worth your while. We also have an install video of this hitch which I have attached for...

  • Looking for a 50mm Trailer Hitch Ball
  • We do have some 50mm balls: # 63912 # EH53C-C # 337RB50MM The bigger issue you are likely to run into is the electrical requirements of a European trailer versus one for the US market. In Europe they have separate circuits for all the lights on a trailer. Here in the states we have one circuit for both left brake light and turn signal, one circuit for both right brake light and turn signal, one circuit for all running/tail lights, and one ground. Five, 6, and 7-Ways have additional...

  • Available 50mm Trailer Hitch Balls
  • We do have options in a 50mm hitch ball, both shown on the linked page. Brophy 8K-rated 50mm hitch ball # EH53C-C has a 1-inch diameter shank; Draw-Tite 3500-lb-rated ball # 63912 has a 3/4-inch diameter shank. Be sure to select one rated with the necessary weight capacity and with the correct shank diameter to fit your ball mount. We do not have any wiring products for the European standard which maintains many individual light circuits; North American towing standards allow for...

  • Availability of a 50MM Trailer Hitch Ball to be Used to Tow European Gilder Trailers
  • After researching with Tow Ready, I found out that they do not have a 50mm ball option for the Tow Ready Interchangeable Hitch Ball Set, like # 63803. However, I have a solution for you. The Brophy 50MM Hitch Ball, # EH53C-C, can either be installed in your current ball mount or you may want to purchase a second ball mount to mount the 50MM ball. The ball has a shank that measures 1 inch in diameter and 2-1/8 inches long. This will allow you to switch ball mounts in and out with out...

  • 50mm Trailer Hitch Ball for European Style Bike Rack
  • Based on some quick research it appears your Atera Stada DL is a fit for a 50mm hitch ball more common in Europe. We do have the Brophy 50mm Hitch Ball - 1" Diameter x 2-1/8" Long Shank - Chrome - 8K # EH53C-C. The 50mm hitch ball is 1.9685 inches so it is between the 2 inch ball and the 1-7/8 inch size so that is most likely your fit issue.

  • Trailer Couplers Compatible with 50mm Hitch Ball
  • A 50mm hitch accessory, such as a hitch ball like # 63912 or # EH53C-C, is slightly smaller than 2-inches, 1.968-inches to be exact. There are multi-fit couplers like # T4845000 and # T2343400183 that will work fine with three hitch ball sizes, 1-7/8-inch, 2-inch and 50mm. The 50mm size did indeed originate in Europe. I recommend using only a coupler that is designed specifically to fit the 50mm ball size.

  • 50mm Ball and Getting Lights to Work on Altera Strada DL3 Bike Rack on 2016 Chrysler Town & Country
  • We do have 50mm hitch ball # EH53C-C so all you will need now is a ball mount that fits the 2 inch receiver on your 2016 Chrysler Town & Country. Since the trailer hitches are close to the ground on vans I recommend a ball mount with some rise in it such as Draw-Tite ball mount # 40346. The electrical is a little more complicated but the good news is that you don't have to have lights on a bike rack in the US. But if you want them to function then an adapter will need to be made since...

  • 50mm Ball and Converting USA 4-Way on 2012 GMC Acadia to Work with a European Trailer in Europe
  • In Europe they usually use a 50mm ball such as # EH53C-C. The wiring is a little more difficult but we can help. You can use the 4-Way wiring already on your 2012 GMC Acadia but you will need to separate out the combined turn signal and brake light circuits. For that I recommend Curt converter # C56196. Then you would just need a European vehicle side trailer connector obtained locally to match what the trailer requires. Please note that you will likely need to split the running light circuit...

  • Coupler and Tire Size on 50s Era Bantam Utility Trailer
  • A trailer coupler will often be stamped to indicate the compatible ball size but on an older 50s-era trailer there's no guarantee this is there or that it is still visible after all those years. Hitch balls offered nowadays include five different sizes but a small utility trailer such as a 50s Bantam is likely to use one of the smallest sizes, either a 1-7/8-inch like # 19256 or perhaps a 50mm size like # 63912. Note that you also need to match the hitch ball shank size to the ball...
