Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 63853 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number 63853. This is the tow-ready hitch ball with the two and five sixteenth inch diameter. This is the packaging that it's going to come in so this is how it's going to come to you. Here on the back of the package, it's going to have all the information you need when installing. It's going to have step by step installation instructions and it's also going to list the torque ratings on the back of this packaging so you want to make sure not to discard this right away. We'll go ahead and take this out of the packaging. That way we can go over a few measurements.

Now again, this is going to offer a two and five sixteenth inch ball diameter. When it comes to the diameter of the shank of the ball mount - which is this portion right here - that's going to give us a shank diameter of right at one inch. Now keep in mind that the mounting hole in the ball mount must not exceed the shank diameter by more than one sixteenth of an inch. The shank length, measuring from the bottom of the ball platform to the end of the threaded portion, is going to give us a measurement of two and one eighth of an inch. This hitch ball is designed for drawbar thicknesses from three eighths of an inch to three quarters of an inch. It's going to offer a capacity of six thousand pounds.

It's made from a stainless steel construction so it's going to last a really long time and it's going to resist rust and corrosion. Here on the sides of the actual hitch ball - this portion right here, these are going to be your wrench flats. It's going to make it easier for installation. You can get a wrench around there very easily and also achieve the proper torque rating as listed by the manufacturer. Really simple installation and operation. All you have to do is place this through the hole on your ball mount.

You're going to get the lock washer that's included as well as the nut. So you'll put those pieces on, tighten it down and then you'll need to get the torque to the specifications listed by the manufacturer, which again, can be found on the backside of this packaging. Once you have that fully assembled and installed onto your ball mount, you can hook up your trailer to the hitch ball. Again, it's going to offer a diameter of two and five sixteenths of an inch. That's going to do it for our review for number 63853. This is the tow-ready hitch ball with the two and five sixteenth inch diameter.

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Hitch Ball
Do you have a question about this Hitch Ball?


  • Is the Finish on the Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball # 63853 Shiny or Dull
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball, # 63853, to check the finish on it. It is a polished stainless steel so it is shiny. I have added a picture I took of the ball so you can see. It is shiny enough to where if you look closely, you can see the reflection of the camera. For the Alumistinger, we have several different ones to choose from: # AM3505 # AM3503 # AM3511 # AM3509 # AM3507

  • Trailer Hitch, Ball Mount, Hitch Ball, and Wiring Recommendations for a 2010 Subaru Forester
  • We gauge difficulty of installing a trailer hitch by how long it takes (on average for the every day do-it-yourselfer) to perform the installation. We rate each of the 2 inch hitches for the 2010 Subaru Forester a 4 out of 10, meaning it will take about 40 minutes. All of the 2 inch hitches will require temporary lowering of the exhaust and the widening of a few holes on the frame using a drill (no new holes need to be drilled) to install the hitch. You will also need to fishwire some...

  • Rust Proof Ball Mount and Hitch Ball Setup Recommendation
  • First thing you will need to do is determine how much rise/drop you would need from a ball mount to tow your trailer level. For that you will want to check out the help article that I attached that details how to do this. Once you figure out what you would need I attached a page that has all of the aluminum ball mounts we carry. You would want to select the amount of drop you would need from the filters and all of the correct ball mounts will be listed. You would want to use a stainless...

  • What Trailer Hitch Balls are Recommend for the Solid Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTBM4200
  • A ball with a medium shank, 2-1/8 inches or longer, will work fine with the Solid Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTBM4200. You will just need to make sure that there are at least 2 threads past the nut when it is properly tightened to the ball mount. Here are some of the balls we recommend: For a 1-7/8 inch diameter, # 63851 For a 2 inch diameter, # SC23-C For a 2-5/16 inch diameter, # 63853

  • Is Cutting Or Trimming Required for 2010 Honda Odyssey Trailer Hitch Installation
  • The CURT Trailer Hitch, # C13068, for the 2010 Honda Odyssey does have an installation note that states models have underbody fascia covering the driver side frame. This will be removed and can be left off or trimmed and reattached. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video showing a typical installation for you.

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Be Detected by the Back Up Sensors on a 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid
  • The available hitches for your 2009 Ford Escape will all extend a little beyond the bumper, but not by much; only about 1 inch. What you can do to test the sensors ahead of time is to place something that extends about 1 inch from the bumper where the hitch would be. If the sensors pick it up, then there is a possibility they will sense the hitch. I would think it is unlikely since the distance is only 1 inch and a steep angle up to the sensors. Even if the hitch did trip the sensors...

  • What is Needed to Tow Safely With a 2011 Toyota Sienna XLE?
  • Happy to see that safety is important enough that you'd ask, and the answer is no, you do not need any additional equipment such as engine coolant in order to tow safely with your 2011 Toyota Sienna. Now, that does not necessarily mean something like a transmission cooler is a bad idea, as it will stop your Sienna from working quite so hard, but it is not necessary. What you will need, however, is a hitch, and the Curt # C13105 has a 2" x 2" opening with a max tongue weight of 350 lbs...

We also carry the Curt, # 13342, that will also fit your vehicle. The only exceptions for any of the available hitches is that they will not fit models equipped with the air suspension package or the 63 AMG model. None of the hitches come with a ball mount.

  • Trailer Hitch, Ball Mount, Hitch Ball, and Trailer Wiring for a 2008 Suzuki XL7
  • All of the available trailer hitches for the 2008 Suzuki XL7 will have visible cross tubing beneath the rear of the vehicle. Based on where the mounting locations are on the vehicle, the hitch had to be designed accordingly and that is why there is visible cross tubing. I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75529, because it has a higher capacity (400 pounds tongue weight, 4,000 pounds gross trailer weight) than the Curt hitch, and it is a smidge more economical than the Hidden...

  • The pictures you have seen for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75992, are of the hitch installed on a Ford Edge. The Edge shares the same platform as the Lincoln MKX, so the appearance of the trailer hitch will be very similar. The cross tubing should be concealed by the rear lower fascia. I have included a link to the installation details. To make the hitch, including the receiver virtually invisible, I recommend the Lincoln Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover, # AUT-LINC-B, and hitch lock # 7683...

There are several available but I recommend going with a Class III hitch rated for weight distribution because you never know what you might be towing in the future. I would go with Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75338. This is a Class III, 2 inch trailer hitch, capable of 500 pounds tongue weight capacity and 5,000 pounds gross trailer weight.

  • I contacted my tech contact at Curt and unfortunately the Curt Hitch for a 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport # 13456 will not work on your vehicle with a full size spare tire. However, if you remove the tire, this hitch will work with your super charged edition. If you plan on doing some towing with your vehicle, I recommend adding a ball mount, hitch ball, and trailer wiring. The recommended ball mount is # 2753, and you can use hitch ball # 19260 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 63853...

It is a Class III 2 inch hitch with a towing weight capacity of 5,000 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. For towing you will need a ball mount, # 2923, and hitch ball # 19260 (1-7/8 inch diameter), # 19247 (2 inch diameter), or # 63853 (2-5/16 inch diameter).

  • Using a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Adapter Reduces Tongue Weight Capacity on a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
  • The use of any adapter or extension will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer by 50 percent. In this situation, you have to go with the lowest capacity, in this case it is the trailer hitch with the reduced tongue weight. Even if the adapter is rated for 6,000 pounds, you will only be able to tow as much as your hitch and vehicle will allow. To overcome this problem, I recommend installing a larger capacity hitch like the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75132....
