Video Transcript for Andersen Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - AM3473 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number AM3473. This is the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Locking Aluminum Ball Mount Kit. It's going to come with two chrome balls. You're going to get a 2" and a 2-5/16". Those hitch balls are interchangeable so you can actually remove the pin at the back of the platform. It's going to allow you to take the hitch ball out of the platform, that way you can interchange them or replace them as needed. The good thing about that is you can actually purchase some different types, so for instance if you dont like this one you can purchase some different types of hitch balls that are going to work in this platform, as well as different sizes.

That's just a great a feature to have. It doesn't limit you, it opens up some doors to some different possibilities. Once you have that pin seated correctly then we can actually install the platform to the adjustable portion of the mount. For our demonstration today we're going to go ahead and set it at it's lowest setting. Just line up the grooves. This will adjust in increments of 1" from a 10" drop to 11" rise.

The unit is really nice. It's going to be strong and light weight, it's going to add a really nice look and it's not going to rust. This part number is going to come with two locking pins. The shorter one is going to lock the actual mount to the hitch of your vehicle. The longer one is going to lock the platform to the adjustable shank. We'll flip back the dust cap, go ahead and stick one of the four keys in the slot.

Then we can just run it through the slot there. Make sure it's coming out the other side and then just simply reinstall the lock and then rotate the key. The locks are a great system to have in place. It's really going to help when it comes to deterring theft. You are going to notice that you get another pin and clip. That's just going to be your standard pin and clip to secure it inside your hitch if you choose to use that one instead of a locking one.

That's going to provide a few different options. Again that ball mount will adjust in increments of 1". That's going to allow towing of various trailers using the same ball mount. It's going to feature the two chrome plated steel hitch balls. You're going to get the two-sided platform. It has a 2" ball on one side, 2-5/16" ball on the other. The hitch balls are going to secure to the housing with the internal pin that I showed you up front. It's going to allow for easy interchangeability. Additional ball sizes can be purchased to replace the originals if needed. Again that locking pin set is really going to help when it comes to deterring theft. The hitch receiver is going to secure the ball mount shank to the hitch. That's going to lock it in place. That's going to be the shorter of the two locks. The locking adjustment pin is going to secure the ball housing to the shank. You're going to get four keys, they are all keyed alike so they'll all work in each of the locks. This is for a 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver. Again you've got the 2", that's going to offer a gross towing weight of 8000 pounds and 2-5/16" ball that's going to offer a gross towing weight of 10,000 pounds. The unit's going to provide a 1500 pound tongue weight. Now if you install this in the rise position, up like this, it's going to give you a maximum rise of 11". Then the drop position as shown is going to give you a maximum drop of 10". That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of the ball platform. In the drop position the ball mount will adjust from 4" to 10". If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole that's going to give us a measurement of 8-1/4". Now when using this system in the rise position you'll want to make sure that the back does not make contact with the rear of your vehicle. So if we take a measurement from the back of that upright bar to the center of the hitch pin hole that's going to give us a measurement of 4-1/4". Keep that measurement in mind as you take that measurement. All you got to do is go out to your vehicle, measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on your vehicle to the outer most point of your vehicle and see if it's going to give you enough clearance to use this ball mount with your application. That's going to do it for our review of part number AM3473. This is the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Locking Aluminum Ball Mount Kit. .

Nice high quality product. I got the 9” trip for a 2017 Tahoe. Worked great for a 16’ enclosed

Fantastic! Now towing a Cat skid steer and maxing at tongue weight with no problems.



by:

Product description clearly states two locking pins with similar keys and they are also shown in the picture above. This came with none of those and only one standard pin. I'll return this if this isn't rectified.



by:

This product has been perfect. It allows me to easily, securely, and safely tow my two trailers. I can switch between trailers in less than a minute! As an added bonus, given the all alumnimum components still looks like the day I bought it!



by:

The adjustment feature is really easy. I have two trailers with different size balls so it is really nice to be able to select the ball you need and adjust the height with no tools. It looks really nice too



by:

Great hitch! Fits my 2001 dodge 3/4 ton and all my trailers perfect. It got here 4 days before scheduled. I will be ordering from etrailer again.

Ball Mount on my Dodge Ram.

Received Tuesday. Pretty good service!

Jan L was a pleasure to work with on the phone.

Product was just as described and works and looks great on the tail of a 2014 Ram 3500 dually.

What a nice company to purchase products from.

I pay to receive the product in good condition, my hitch ended up being damaged, I don't know what type of packaging this was, they are supposedly a waoooo site, I ask for my return label and my refund, I



by:

Sooooo....you sent me a product that was somehow put together backwards and I cannot take them apart somehow the ballhitch is stuck on the male portion backwards and defies gravity and doesn’t need a pin to stay on(becaue thier is no where to put the pin in cause it’s backwards



by:

Works flawlessly. I was very excited the day I got home and my Rapid hitch was on the front porch. It came in nice box and was packaged very well. I opened it up and unpacked my rapid hitch and I was very impressed with the quality and precision of this hitch. All of the machining was PERFECT and everything fit together right. I put it in my truck right away. Going down the road with the trailer on and off there is absolutely no rattles, clunks, or jolts. I also love how everything is aluminum or stainless steel, NO RUST. I wish I could've gotten the greaseless model but my boat is too heavy. My only complaint is that it doesn't come with locking pins. With a hitch this expensive I really wish it came with them. Do yourself a favor and order them with your rapid hitch so you don't have to pay for shipping in the future. Other than that great product and I believe it will outlast me.



by:

This is a really nice hitch if you tow a variety of trailers or need to get your ball up high as I need to do on my 1999 F450. I needed the ball up high to level my Jeep tow bar, so this is just the ticket for me. This hitch is made in the USA, which is great too. eTrailer.com service is excellent and their communication perfect. They obviously care about their customers and the product.

Only 2 things prevent a 5 star rating for this very pricey hitch. IMO, for the money, the manufacturer should also include: 1. a lock pin for the adjustable hitch ball. 2: an anti-rattle attachment.



by:

I ordered my AM3405 and was amazed how quickly the etrailer team responded with not only my order confirmation but the fantastic follow up when it was shipped and delivered. I highly recommend etrailer and will order from them again.

The product showed up in great shape and I am very happy with the quality. One recommendation would be to order two of the locking pins. One for the receiver and one to lock the ball mount to the unit. You will see by my picture I resolved that issue with a pad lock but the locking pin would have been better.



by:

I really like this hitch. Very good quality. Only short fall is that it should include the locks due you can't buy them in any store due to the length is longer than the normal pin lock. I recommend that should be sold as a combo. picture has the locks required
