  • Ball diameters: 2" and 2-5/16"
  • Pin diameter of each pin hole: 3/4"
  • Measurement from center of hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the vertical upright: 3-3/4"
  • Width of vertical upright: 2-3/4"

Tow up to 10,000 lbs with the safety and convenience of the adjustable 8" drop and 8" rise on the EZ Hitch ball mount system. Turn the ball mount over to select a drop or rise. After the ball mount has been installed on your vehicle, just pull the included pin to adjust the combo ball up or down or to flip the combo ball between the 2" or 2-5/16" hitch ball as needed. Replace the pin, and you're ready to tow. The ball mount fits 2" square trailer hitches and is a great solution for those who tow several different trailers.


Keeping your trailer level with your tow vehicle makes it easier and safer to tow. If your trailer is more than 2" nose up, it will sway during towing - increasing tire wear and making your ride less comfortable. Lots of sway makes it harder to drive your vehicle. If the trailer is more than 2" nose down, the load may put too much weight on the hitch and tow vehicle, exceeding the weight limit for both. This puts too much stress on the connection between your trailer and hitch and doesn't leave enough weight on your front wheels, affecting your ability to steer and brake properly. An adjustable ball mount system makes it easy to keep whatever you tow as level as possible.

Due to so unpleasantness with my homeowners association, my 21' bow-rider is now in my 22' deep garage. It's a pretty tight fit. Also, I have to drop the bow enough to clear a 7' high garage door. It's a cinch with this hitch. I tow with the lock pin in the 5th. hole and drop down to the 3rd. hole to clear the door. Also, the short trailer increased the hitch load. This product is rated for 1000#. 160337

This is my first adjustable hitch. So far it is working very well for me. The hitch is very sturdy. I tow a Carry-All trailer and a boat. With this hitch I can adjust to the appropriate height for each instead of compromising or towing in an unsafe manner. Also, towing my trailer in a more level position allows me to load the trailer correctly. 783171

This thing works great. Heavy duty construction, easy to move the ball mount up and down. Great value for the price. My only regret is that I should have gotten the slightly shorter version, I really don't need as much height adjustment as is available, and in some rare situations it ends up dragging on the ground, like going up a steep driveway or over a deep ditch. Which did not seem to affect the hitch at all, but did leave a big gouge in someone's driveway! Do yourself a favor and measure to make sure you only get the adjustment height you actually need, and then you will be less likely to drag it. 730743

Works great. When the ball is on the lowest setting, the ball underneath hangs a little too low and drags easily. Other than that, it's perfect! 395838

Ask the Experts about this Andersen Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Recommended Rise For 2008 Nissan Frontier Ball Mount
    The EZ Hitch Adjustable part # AM3296 will work well for your 2008 Nissan Frontier hitch that is 17.5" from the top of the receiver to the ground and the trailer that has a coupler 24 inches from the ground when level. You do need about 6.5" of rise to be level, you can pin the ball in the second to last hole from the top.

  • Why Does the EZ Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount Rattle While Driving
    The hitch balls on the EZ Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount, # AM3296, will rattle somewhat in the ball mount when not towing. The rattle is due to the shank of the hitch ball being narrower than the mounting slot on the shank of the ball mount. While towing the rattle will be minimal because the weight on the hitch ball will push the hitch ball shank into the slot on the ball mount. If the rattle you are experiencing is at your trailer hitch receiver, then that can be easily remedied with...

  • Is there a Lock for the Andersen EZ Hitch Adjustable, Steel Ball Mount Kit
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled adjustable ball mount # AM3296 to measure the diameter of the pin that holds the ball portion on the shank. It is a 3/4 diameter pin and there are no locks this size. But I do have an option for you. You could use a padlock in place of the clip on the end of the pin. The hole diameter for the clip is 0.21 inches so a shackle diameter of 3/16 inches would work.

  • Availability of Adjustable Andersen Two Ball Mount and Lock Set
    We carry the lock set part number # AM3493. We also carry the EZ Ball Mount Set part # AM3298 which I believe is the ball mount you are looking for. It has the same rise/drop and capacity for the part number 3299.

  • Locking Pin Recommendation for the EZ Hitch Adjustable, Steel Ball Mount AM3296
    As long as the pin diameter matches up on your Adjustable Ball Mount part # AM3296 with the part # C23556 the locks being a bit too long would not matter. Normally we would recommend the part # AM3493, but if the Curt fits it would work as well.

  • Availability of 1-7/8 Inch Trailer Ball For EZ Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount Part # AM3296
    I have spoken with one of my contacts with Andersen Manufacturing who tells me that a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball is not available for the EZ Hitch Adjustable Steel Ball Mount. I understand that they currently have no plans to offer one. Your best bet would be to go with the EZ Hitch you were looking at, part # AM3296. For your smaller trailer that uses the 1-7/8 inch ball, assuming that you are needing a maximum of an 10 inch drop I would suggest an adjustable ball mount like part # MT70067...

The width of the vertical upright is 2-3/4 inches. The distance from the closest edge of the 2-5/16 inch ball to the vertical upright is 1-7/8 inches.

    The EZ Hitch Adjustable Steel Ball Mount Kit, part # AM3296 will work just fine with a 2x2 inch Class III receiver on your Hummer H2. The Ball Mount has a 8000 lb capacity when used with the 2 inch ball, or 10,000 lbs when used with the 2-5/16 ball, although your maximum capacity will be limited by the manufacturers stated towing capacity.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount With Both 2 and 1-7/8 Diameter Balls
    Yes, the EZ Adjustable Ball Mount with Combo Ball # AM3297 is exactly what you're looking for! It provides the 2" and 1-7/8" diameter balls you're looking for with the same 8" Drop or Rise. Keep in mind this version provides 7,500 lbs capacity with the smaller 1-7/8" ball. Just like with # AM3296 , the 2" ball provides the same 8,000 lbs capacity though.

  • Best Way to Determine Coupler Height on Trailer That is About to be Purchased
    Best option would be to contact the dealer selling the trailer and ask them to get that figure for you. They should be more than willing to take the measurement as it will allow you to buy it from them and drive it home. A longer shot might be to find a Forest River RV forum and ask around in there. Your truck sits up pretty high so an adjustable ball mount with a decent amount of drop like the Rapid Hitch part # AM3296 would most likely do the trick. It can do a drop of up to 8 inches...

  • Can Trailer Height be Raised by Changing the Suspension
    If the trailer leaf springs are currently mounted on the bottom of your axle, moving them to the top of the axle will lift the suspension. To do so you will need 4 new spring seats, 8 u-bolts, 16 nuts and 4 U-Bolt plates per axle. The diameter of your trailer axles will determine the size of the parts you will need to order. If the axles are 3 inches in diameter, part # K71-385-00 would be a good choice. If you are thinking about lifting your trailer because your tow vehicle hitch...

    I have a coworker with a 2015 GMC Acadia that has the tow package as well so I went out to check it out. The hitch on the vehicle does have safety chain loops on each side of the receiver so you would not have to have a ball mount that has safety chain loops.
