Love the look of my new hitch, arrived ontime, locks are great to keep hitch secured to my truck, Can't wait to trailer my boat to the Keys and give the hitch a good trial run.

etrailer is a great company to do business with. I chose the Andersen hitch because a friend bought one in 2001 and it still looks good and functions perfectly.

Great hitch for leveling my trailer and weight saving.

Hitch parts were well packaged and arrived in a timely manner. This is my second Andersen hitch setup. Top quality American made products. I will continue to support both Andersen and etrailer.

The hitch looks very nice, the adjustability is great. On our 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe in order for the hitch to clear the bumper the second hole must be used. When in this position the hitch has alot of play. I will be ordering an anti-rattle device to eliminate the extra play.

Great product and great price also! Works great on our Ford F150. Thanks

This is a must have for full-time trailer hauling. No ball grease needed. Easy to adjust for a level trailer, smooth towing. I increased my trailer tires to light duty truck tires (a little taller tire), for heaver loads & ease of mind to haul at 75 mph speed. This hitch allow me to fine tune the trailer ball height for best setup on my heavy duty Toyota Tundra truck.

hitch looks nice, adjustments are quick, seems quite loose and noisy without the trailer on it but I'm sure it will be alright when hooked up. definitely get the locking pins.

Great Co. to deal with, pricing, shipping, condition all as stated. We will be using on a new work trailer and am tired of the steel variety rusting and not looking good, we will see in the long term if we are satisfied.

The hitch has held up really well and continues to function as expected. The aluminum has oxidized which is unfortunate but nearly impossible to prevent on a part such as this.

Ask the Experts about this Andersen Trailer Hitch Ball Mount



  • Is Towing Capacity Reduced when Using Furthest Hitch Pin Hole on Adjustable Ball Mount AM3461
    Yes, you can use either hitch pin hole in adjustable ball mount # AM3461 without losing any capacity. With this ball mount the 2 inch ball is rated for 8,000 pounds and the 2-5/16 inch ball is rated for 10,000 pounds.

  • How to Tighten or Remove the Ball Lock Pin on Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # AM3461
    On the Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # AM3461 there is that pin on the ball part of the assembly that has a threaded hole in it. That threaded hole should be visible when the pin is in there correctly. You can use a 1/4 inch screw or bolt to thread into that hole and then turn the pin so that it goes in further and clears the path for the larger pin that holds the ball portion to the shank. Instructions are not included like you said. This includes the one that I was inspecting...

  • What Does Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit w/ 2 Greaseless Balls # AM3461 Weigh
    The Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit w/ 2 Greaseless Balls # AM3461 that you referenced weighs a total of 13 lbs.

  • Does Ball Mount Length Need To be Determined When Picking Out Ball Mount
    There isn't a set formula for picking out ball mount length like there is for ball mount rise/drop. Typically around 7 to 10 inches works for most people. Some people will go longer if they are trying to be able to drop a tailgate and there's a tall a-frame jack in the way. Assuming you have a pretty standard setup and you have the rise/drop figure that you need worked out already a shorter in length ball mount would be just fine. I attached a link to a page that has all of our ball mounts...

  • Recommend Locking Hitch Pin To Use w/ Anderson Adjustable Ball Mount # AM3461
    For a locking hitch pin to use with the Anderson Adjustable Ball Mount # AM3461, I would recommend the Andersen Trailer Hitch Lock, part # AM3492. This lock will work with both 2 inch and 2-1/2 inch receivers. The Anderson Lock # AM3492 includes 2 keys and comes with a 1-year limited warranty. I have linked a video review of the Andersen Trailer Hitch Lock, part # AM3492.

  • Is the Anderson Greaseless Hitch Ball AM3662 Still Available
    We do offer a greaseless hitch ball but it is in the from of the Anderson Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit part # AM3461 or part # AM3405. This ball mount is made of aluminum so it's super lightweight, has multiple adjustments for use with different trailers, and has the greaseless hitch ball design for a smooth maintenance free operation. The Anderson Greaseless Hitch Ball is no longer available as it has been discontinued by the manufacturer.

  • What Light Weight Adjustable Multi Ball Mounts Are Available For A 2" Receiver?
    The Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount # C45900 weighs approximately 30lbs. That includes the receiver pin and cotter pin. The Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit # AM3461 is one of our lightest weight adjustable hitches. At only 12lbs the aluminum construction not only makes it light but it will not rust or corrode in salty and wet areas. The Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # AM3492 will provide you with a locking pin for the height adjustment...

  • Aluminum Ball Mount For 2 Inch Hitch With 2-5/16 and 1-7/8 Hitch Balls
    There is an aluminum ball mount that will allow you to use both 1-7/8" and 2-5/16" hitch balls, but since there isn't a combo ball with those sizes together, you'd have to get the 1-7/8" ball separately. So you have two options depending on the drop you need: - 4" Drop: Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit # AM3461 - 5-1/2" Drop: Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit # AM3405 Both ball mounts come with a combo 2" and 2-5/16" hitch ball, so you'd also need to add...

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    All the Rapid Hitch ball mounts we carry, like part # AM3461, are for 2 inch hitch receivers but we do have similar products. I recommend the Weigh Safe 180, part # LTB4-25. It does fit a 2-1/2 inch receiver and stil gives you 4 inches of drop or 5 inches of rise. The Weigh Safe doesn't have the greaseless hitch balls like the Rapid Hitch but they are stainless steel.

  • Two Ball Mount (2" & 1-7/8") That Works With Rock Tamers
    I don't have exactly what you want, but I do have a solution. The Rock Tamers come in three sizes based on the hitch receiver size, which will be 2”, or 2-1/2”, or 3”. The other important requirement is 1” open area on the shank right next to the receiver. I have attached a picture illustrating this requirement. We do not have a two-ball mount that works with a typical 2” receiver, has 6” of drop\lift, and comes with 2” and a 1-7/8” balls. The closest match you can make is with a Fastway...

    The only greaseless hitch balls that are available are from Andersen and do require the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mounts, which come with greaseless hitch balls. There are no individual greaseless hitch balls that can be had separately.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount with 2 Balls that are NOT Chrome
    The B&W adjustable ball mounts all use chrome balls. Fastway has ball mount # DTSTBM6400-2S with stainless steel balls. Stainless steel doesn't have the wear problems that chrome does but it does cost more. We also have # AM3461 that has the greaseless capped balls though the rest of the balls are chrome.
