Video Transcript for Brophy Pintle Hook Review

What's up everybody, it's AJ with Today, we're gonna be checking out this Brophy pintle hook. It's gonna be for 2 1/2 inch hitches, it's gonna help you hook up to the lunette ring, like you see here, to haul those big flatbed trailers. Let's check it out. Take a closer look at it, you can see how it's set up. The pintle hook is in the lunette ring.

It's resting down in this groove here, so it's in place, ready to use. It's really easy to set up. You can just pull this pin out, pull this lever, and that's gonna raise the top portion up just like that. Now with that up into place, the other nice thing is you don't have to pull that handle and push it down in place when you're going to set up. So let's say you lower your lunette ring down on here.

You're good to go, you just push into place and it's locked in there. You can't just pull it back up. You have to pull that lever to get it to move. So that's a pretty cool feature, that just makes it easier when you're hooking this up to go get on the road. So this is gonna be a standard pintle hook.

It's got a straight shank on it, so there's not gonna be any adjusting. And it's also gonna be a forged steel with a black powder coat finish on there, so you don't have to worry about leaving this in your hitch, leaving it out in the elements. It's not gonna rust or corrode on you. Now this pintle hook is gonna have a gross trailer weight rating of 36,000 pounds, and then it's gonna have a gross tongue weight of 3000 pounds. Something else to think about is the lunette ring.

It's gonna work with the diameter as a minimum of 2 1/2 inches. So just keep that in mind when you're looking at your pintle hook and your trailer and your lunette ring. One thing I will say is that it does not come with a hitch pin, so you're gonna have to pick up one of those separately. And if you're gonna have to pick one up, I recommend just getting one that locks. So we got the etrailer one right here, I recommend that. It's got a barrel lock on this side that you can lock up your pintle hook, and that just gives you the peace of mind of nobody's gonna mess with this when you're not around, because this is locked up. Overall, I think it's gonna be really good. I think it's gonna help you get that trailer hooked up and get on the road quickly, especially if you only have one trailer. If you have multiple trailers that you're looking to pull, I would recommend looking into the adjustable pintle hooks that we have on our site. That way you can move that up and down to adjust to different trailers and you don't have to pull this out and get a whole new setup every single time. Well, that does it. Thanks for hanging out, and I hope this helps..

Brophy Pintle Hook for 2-1/2" Hitches - 36,000 lbs - BR27FR

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (66 Customer Reviews)

Forged steel pintle hook provides a strong and durable attachment point for your trailer equipped with a lunette ring coupler. Black powder coat finish resists rust and corrosion.


I do like the strength of the product. The flaws were the actual bolt on the top piece broke off holding the locking pin first week (allen key bolt). I also have to spray or grease the top piece that opens and closes and the rain rusts the joint quickly and is almost impossible to lift up by hand. I would look to purchase another product here since the price is right, but am not happy with the day to day use of this hitch at all. I do not have a picture at the moment, but if I can, I will show some of the issues. Thanks.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. I recommend keeping a can of rust resistant touch up paint to touch up the pintle hook from time to time. I reached out to the manufacturer who advised that keeping it oiled after each use would also help to increase the longevity.

This is a great hitch to fit our new Chevy that has the correct weight rating to pull our trailer. It is hard to find a hitch with this rating that is a slide in receiver at this price. Great buy very happy with this purchase.


Only 2 1/2 hitch that can handle 36,000 lbs!


Great product and fits perfectly on the GMC 5500 for pulling heavy loads


This Pintle Hook is really stout! Extremely heavy duty. The hook latch opens and closes easily with an integrated latch and a secondary pin for safety. This Pintle Hook works very well, and I have no concerns. I believe it'll serve me well for the rest of my natural life. I really like it!


This is the 2nd time I have ordered from etrailer..... never shipping and what I ordered I received every time.. always a good product and willing to help with questions and answers.. thank you!!!!!


Excellent product! Very heavy duty.


Using it on a F550 that is pulling 20,000 to 25,000 lbs almost daily and is holding up great


This beefy hitch was perfect for attaching my low profile dump trailer to my f350.


Excellent service, very heavy duty hitc h.


Very heavy duty. It will work good for pulling farm machinery home. Shipping was SUPER fast!!!!


Fast efficient and exactly what I order ed.


I bought this for my husband. He loves it, it’s well made, rugged, and built to last! Very happy happy customer!


I would like to start off by saying I have had the opportunity to work with two very helpful sales people (Sonny and Vickey) and finish by saying the products were exactly what they said they were and as they should be! I will definitely be a future customer again. Thank you again.


Good rugged hitch


Everything was great


Very sturdy hitch and over buying for the weight capacity was a great idea. I pull 15,000lbs trailers, feels more secure than my 16,000lbs previous hitch.


Heavy duty

by: 08/28/2021

the 15 ton bolt on pintle plus the adjustable 10 ton Curt trailer ball mounted on my custom made trailer hitch


It appears well made. I have not had to use it yet but I keep it in my truck at all times for when the opportunity arises.


Ordering is simple and easy. I get the correct items everything. Shipping is usually on time. I will order from them again.


This 36,000 lb. pintle hitch is an extremely well made American Product. The latch is very smooth and easy to open, the Powder Coating they applied to the hitch is very good and will preserve the hitch for a long time. To my surprise when I received the pintle hitch it is stamped right into the casting 20 Ton. Very well made and rugged hitch. The product review video was very helpful and describes this pintle hitch perfectly. Also I want to thank Courtney B. for her help when I called in with a couple of questions I had in comparing this hitch with another one that is offered, while on the phone, Courtney placed my order and in less than two days I received my pintle hitch, and I am extremely pleased with it. I will be towing a 20 ton rated trailer with a 16,000 lb. excavator behind my Chevy Silverado 3500 Heavy Duty Diesel that comes with a
2 1/2 inch receiver. I highly recommend this hitch if you want one that is well made and very rugged.


Great product very heavy duty.
slightly shorter (bearing point of pintle to pin hole) than the similar product made by curt mfg. this was just enough of a difference where it no longer Tripped my backup sensors on my 2020 ram 3500. the safety pin not only locks the pintle closed, but will also lock it in the open position as well which it a great feature. Only downside is the chain for safety pin is a tad short which isn’t a big deal.


I was looking for an affordable pintle hitch that would allow me to pull a heavy load safely. This hitch seems to be built well (weighs 22 lbs), without the high pricetag you get from other big name hitch brands. Great hitch


Really happy with the purchase. Looks heavy duty, definitely good to have the excess capacity for safety.
