Video Transcript for Andersen Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - AM3505 Review

Today well be reviewing part number AM3505. This is the Rapid Hitch Alumistinger Ball Mount with 4" drop or 3" rise and rated at 8,000 lbs. It's made from an aluminum super alloy construction and it's a solid bar construction, so you can see here that it's a solid piece. The only opening that we have is for the ball hole and for our hitch pin. It's got a very sleek, unique design and it's extremely lightweight. It's also going to be rustproof. Please keep in mind that this may not work with some newer Toyota or Ford factory hitch receivers.

It is designed to work with a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. With it installed in the drop position, if we take a measurement from the ball platform to the top of the shank or the inside top of the receiver tube, that's where we're going to get our drop measurement from and that's going to measure right around 4". If we we're to install this in the rise position and do that same measurement, it's going to give us a measurement of right around 3". This has 8,000 lbs capacity for the gross trailer weight and 800 lbs for the ton weight. Measuring from the center of the ball hole to the center of the hitch pin hole is going to give us a measurement of 9". When choosing the hitch ball you want to make sure that the shank of the hitch ball does not exceed the ball hole diameter, which for this ball mount is going to measure right at 1".

Also the draw bar thickness, which is this portion here, is going to give us a measurement of 1". It has a nice slant here at the back side, which allows us to slide easily into the receiver tube of your hitch. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of our shank, up here at the top, is going to give us a measurement of about 2". Also when installed in the rise position you want to make sure you have enough clearance between the slant and the back of your vehicle. At the base of that slant to the center of the hitch pin hole is going to measure about 4". The way this would work is you would just simply take it and slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up your pin holes with the pin holes of your hitch. Then you would need to install a 5/8" pin and clip.

This is sold separately; you can refer to our website and type in part number PC3 and it'll refer you to this pin that comes with the clip. Once you have everything installed in your hitch, you're on your way and you're set to go. That's going to do it for today's review of part number AM3505. This is the rapid hitch Alumistinger Ball Mount with 4" drop or 3" rise. .

Thank you for getting back to me so fast on this issue (not really an issue but it's all I could come up with). Your customer service is exceptional. I was surprised to get a call from you rather than the typical email response (how ironic I'm emailing this) and the normal automated processing that we've all become accustomed too. I will continue to be a customer of etrailer as a result of this and also pass along to my friends what a pleasure it has been ordering from your company. 473024

Yesterday,(5-12) I received my Alumistinger ball mount and I'm very impressed with this product. If this works as well as it looks it will be outstanding. My only suggestion would be is to buy the optional pin lock. As good as this looks someone will surely try and help themselves to it. Thank you ETRAILER and I will be purchasing the pin lock before use. H. Spellman 379852

Ask the Experts about this Andersen Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Does Hitch Ball Come Mounted to Alumistinger Ball Mount with 4 Drop or 3 Rise
    A hitch ball does not come mounted to the Alumistinger Ball Mount with 4" Drop or 3" Rise # AM3505, and there is not a way to get that as an option. For the hitch balls that work with this mount, either the 2" Hitch Ball # EH68C-C or 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # SC30-C, you will need to torque them to 250 ft-lbs according to Brophy. If for some reason you are unable to get that installed yourself, a local installer should be able to tighten the hitch ball to the necessary ft-lbs. I have...

  • Will Alumistinger Ball Mount Part # AM3505 Fit a 2013 Toyota Tacoma with 6-Foot Bed
    The Alumistinger Ball Mount, part # AM3505, will fit 2-inch hitch receivers. As long as your hitch receiver is a 2-inch size (and all hitches that we offer for your truck are this size) then this ball mount will fit and will provide you with some height adjustment capability for matching the heights of your hitch ball and trailer coupler. This ball mount provides a choice of either a 4-inch rise or a 3-inch drop in height relative to the top of the receiver opening. It carries an 8000-lb...

  • Will Aluminstinger Ball Mount Fit a 2015 Ford F-250 with Factory Trailer Hitch
    It is hit or miss on the factory Ford trailer hitches. Some of them have offset hitch pin holes for some reason. But I believe that has been resolved. If the hitch pin holes are lined up properly on the receiver on your 2015 Ford F-250 then you can use the Alumistinger # AM3505. Otherwise you would have to use a special Ford ball mount from a dealer.

  • Is Alumistinger Ball Mount Compatible With Reese Sway-Control Bracket
    I spoke with a representative of Andersen who said they do not recommend using the Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3505 with sway control due to the amount of stress it would put on the aluminum mount. Instead you can use the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 2753 which like the Alumistinger fits 2" hitches, has a 4" drop and 3" rise along with a weight capacity of 7,500 lbs. It is compatible with the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 2" Ball Mounts # RP26003 that works with Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660.

  • Compatibility of the Alumistinger Ball Mount on a 2017 Toyota 4Runner
    If your 2017 Toyota 4Runner has a 2 inch receiver opening in the trailer hitch, then you will be able to use the Alumistinger Ball Mount, # AM3505. This ball mount has a 4 inch drop and a 3 inch rise and a gross towing weight rated at 8,000 lbs. You might want to read the attached article on how to choose the correct ball mount. The article will explain how to measure to see if you will need a ball mount with a rise or drop to connect to your trailer.

  • Correct Torque to Install Brophy 2-Inch Hitch Ball SC23-C on Alumistinger Ball Mount AM3505
    To install the Brophy 2-Inch Hitch Ball # SC23-C on Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3505 you will use a suitable torque wrench (one like # ALL944001) to apply 250-ft-lbs of torque on the nut. I confirmed this with my contact at Brophy Machine Works.

  • 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

  • How To Carry Jazzy Motorized Wheelchair With 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
    Although the Draw-Tite hitch is a custom fit for the Pacifica and is designed to handle up to 675 lbs of tongue weight, the Pacifica is not rated for that much tongue weight. I researched the owner's manual for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and the maximum tongue weight for the without a trailer tow package is 149 lbs of tongue weight. The maximum tongue weight for a Pacifica with a trailer tow package is 360 lbs of tongue weight. If you use an exterior lift to lift the motorized wheelchair,...
