Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - A-82 Review

Today were going to take a look at the Curt 2-inch hitch ball, part number A-82. This is a 2-inch diameter hitch ball made of stainless steel with wrench flats. It has a shank diameter of of an inch, a shank length of 2 1/8 of an inch. It is intended for a drawbar with a ball platform thickness of 3/8 of an inch to 1 1/4 of an inch, and has a weight capacity of 3,500 pounds. Now were going to show you how this would work using our ball mount and our trailer hitch demonstrator. You would just slide the shank into the ball hole.

The nut and washer come with this item, and you would put the washer on first, and then proceed to finger tighten the nut on there. Once you have that tightened you will get your wrench and then tighten it the remainder of the way so this can be used to tow your trailer. That should do it for the Curt 2-inch hitch ball, part number A-82.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Audi A4 Allroad
    For your 2018 Audi A4 Allroad the hitch you'll want is the Curt part # C11448 which is a confirmed fit and would do a great job towing the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535 that you referenced. The ball mount you have to use with the Curt hitch is the part # C45521 and then for a 2 inch hitch ball you'd need the # A-82. You'll also need trailer wiring as well so that you can control the trailer's taillights. For that the best option is the Tekonsha ZCI kit part # 119250KIT which...

  • Recommendation for a 2 Inch Ball for Ball Mount 3593 with Class I Trailer Hitch on 2008 Nissan Versa
    The ball mount you have, # 3593, requires a ball with a 3/4 inch diameter shank. For a compatible 2 inch ball I usually recommend # 19258. But if you want a ball that isn't going to corrode then # A-82 is an excellent choice because it is stainless steel. Basically if you won't be using the ball much I recommend # 19258 and if you will be using it a lot then I recommend # A-82.

  • 2 Inch Hitch Ball with a 3/4 Inch Shank and 2 Inch Rise
    We offer a 2 inch hitch ball, part # A-82 with a 3/4 inch shank diameter and a 2-1/8 inch long shank. If you were needing the high rise trailer ball, those are no longer available. Your best bet would be to use a ballmount with a larger rise to gain greater height.

  • How Tall is Curt 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Ball A-82
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled Curt trailer hitch ball # A-82 to measure it for you. The height from the mounting surface to the top of the ball is 2-3/4 inches. I have included a picture showing this measurement.

  • Determining Which Drop/Rise Ball Mount will be Needed to Transport my Coleman Popup Camper
    I can help you figure out what which ball mount you will need for your Mazda and Coleman popup camper. There's some specific measurements to take to determine the rise/drop of ball mount you need. Measure from the inside top of the receiver tube to the ground. Then, with the trailer jacked so that it's level, measure the distance from the underside of the coupler to the ground. The difference between the two measurements is the rise/drop needed. If the coupler height is taller than that...

  • Is a 2 inch or 2-5/16 inch Ball a Standard Size for a Hitch Ball
    2 inch or 2-5/16 inch diameter balls are pretty standard sized balls, it is not surprising that the coupler on the 1997 Coleman camper accepts either one of those sizes. For a 2 inch ball I would recommend a Hitch Ball with 2 inch Diameter and Medium Shank, part # 19247. If you need a ball mount as well I would recommend a Ball Mount 2-3/4 inch Rise or 4 inch Drop, part # 2753.

  • Is Curt Trailer Hitch Ball A-82 Solid Stainless Steel
    Curt trailer hitch ball # A-82 is stainless throughout. When a ball or other part is plated or coated we do make sure to point that out in the description and/or the title. Also the price is a dead giveaway since stainless is more expensive. A ball with the same rating and measurements from the same manufacturer only in chrome, # C40018, costs 3 times less!

    We have exactly what you need for your ball mount. I recommend the Hitch Ball With Medium Shank, part # 63845 along with the Hitch Ball Bushing, part # 58184. this hitch ball has a capacity of 7,500 lbs. The bushing will slip inside the 1-1/4 inch hole on your ball mount and allow the 1 inch shank hitch ball to fit in your ball mount with no excess play. Using this bushing will not reduce the towing weight capacity or tongue weight capacity but you will be limited to the lowest...

  • What Size Hitch Ball Will Fit my 2002 Chevrolet S-10 Bumper Ball Hole
    In order to make a proper selection for a hitch ball, you will need to find out what diameter size ball your trailer needs. It should be stamped on the trailer coupler or frame, either 1-7/8 or 2 inch. All bumper ball holes are 3/4 of an inch, so you will need to pick a ball with a 3/4 inch shank diameter. The ball you were looking at, part # A-82, is a 3/4 inch shank diameter and is a 2 inch diameter ball. If you need a 1-7/8 inch ball, you would use part # A-80. Those are our only...

  • Coupler on Coleman Pop-Up Trailer is Difficult to Un Hitch on Uneven Terrain
    First let's begin with the obvious. Make sure you're using the correct trailer ball for the coupler. The required ball size should be stamped into the metal of the coupler. Secondly, make sure the latching mechanism is not excessively worn and has been lubricated. Finally, how uneven is the ground you're speaking of? In order to latch/unlatch properly, the coupler can't be bound up on the ball.

  • What Size Hitch Ball Fits a 1968 Alpenkreuzer from Holland
    In Europe trailers couple to metric balls. The common European ball size is 50mm which is very close to a US 2 inch ball. It is likely that the coupler would fit a US 2 inch ball if it was indeed designed for use with a 50mm. We do have a 50mm ball, # 63912, if you wanted to go that route. The top of the coupler may say what size ball to use but given the age of the classis trailer it may or may not be decipherable. Another option is to replace the coupler with a new one so you...

  • Hitch Solution for 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI that Can Do Ball Mount Rise of 9 inches
    I really wish there was a good solution for your problem but with Class I hitches like what you have there isn't a way to use a taller rise ball mount. The added length and leverage of the taller ball mount just is too much stress on the lower capacity hitch. Aside from going to a 2 inch hitch I really don't have a solution I can provide.

  • Recommended Trailer Towing Components for 2015 Ford Escape

Class III hitches have a 2 inch hitch opening and Class II or Class I hitches have a 1-1/4 inch opening that is not nearly as strong or adaptable for other uses.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2010 VW GTI MK6
    For your 2010 VW GTI, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11000. This is a system rated for 2000 lbs max and 200 lbs tongue weight max, so you will want to make sure your trailer doesn't exceed that and that your towing capacity in your owners manual allows for that. The manufacturer specs trump the hitch ratings, so you will go off that capacity if it is less than the hitch is rated for. For a ball mount, I recommend the Curt Class II Drawbar...

I recommend this one over the Draw-Tite # 36652 that you referenced because of its higher tongue weight rating of 350-lbs. Your car itself could have different capacities so I checked the online owner's manual to confirm the towing capacity determined by GM. The 2018 Buick LaCrosse...

If you will be doing any towing with your vehicle then you will also need a wiring harness, ball mount/hitch ball, and hitch pin/clip.

The types of bike racks that can hold both a trike and a recumbent bike, such as # HR1000Z-R-TRKADP, only fit Class III and up 2 inch trailer hitches.
