Video Transcript for Review of Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable Ball Mount - BLU45XR

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at the Blue Ox Adjustable Ball Mount with the Pintle hook for a 2" hitch. Has a 13,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now this is a pintle hook and hitch ball combo. So they'll let you hook up your heavy duty trailers of various heights to your tow vehicle. Basically, you'll slide this shank into a 2" hitch receiver and then secure it to the hitch using this included 5/8" diameter hitch pin clip.

You can see there's two hitch pinholes right here. You'll just pick the correct one for your application, put the pin and clip in there to secure it. Now front you'll have a pintle hook, and this select you connect to Lunette ring coupler trailers. And if you notice, this also has a hitch ball on it so allow you to connect to standard ball coupler trailers. If you notice, it's installed into this channel that has an adjustable height to it.

So this will let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. You just slide this pintle hook and hitch ball up or down along this channel and then secure it in place with the included pins and clips. You just put it to the correct height you need to be able to tow level. The distance between these adjustment holes center to center is 1". Now if you do put this in the lowest position, so right now the shank is in the drop position.

So if you put this combo in the very lowest position, it'll get you a maximum drop from the top of the shank top, or top of the shank here to the top of the ball platform of 8 3/4". And if you flip the shank over into the rise position and then put this combo in the highest position if you measure from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform, it'll get you a maximum rise of 2 3/4". Now this does have a built in anti-rattle device on it. On the shank there is a rubber bumper that's put in here. So when you do put this pintle hook and ball combo onto there and pin it in place, it'll ride up against that rubber bumper.

So it eliminates a lot of the noise. It is a nice black powder coated shank and platform. They are corrosion resistant. If you notice the ball has a nice chrome plating to it, to provide excellent rust resistance. You can see up here as a safety pin. That's for the pintle latch. When you go to install this onto a Lunette ring coupler. Now, Lunette ring coupler is one that'll have a round ring on it and it's designed to drop over this ball. And then the this pintle hook is put over it to hold it in place. So to install this other Lunette ring coupler you'll slide this safety pin out, pull up on this handle here, and raise your hook out of the way. And then when you put your Lunette ring coupler in there, the Lunette ring goes over the ball, push that down and then put your pinning clip right through there. Now if you're not gonna use it on a Lunette ring, if you're gonna lose it on a regular ball, then you can just pin it in place in the up position and then use the ball for regular trailer coupler. But again, once you secure it in place, and then you just clip it and that holds it, keep it from opening. Few specs: this again, it's designed to fit into a 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver. Gross towing weight capacity is 13,000 pounds, towing weight capacity of 1300 pounds. Last thing I wanna do is give you some measurements and we're gonna measure from the center of these hitch pit holes, to the center of the ball right up front here. So if we get our tape measure, we're gonna take the first hole. So if we go from the center of that first hole all the way to the center of the ball, it's gonna be 13 inches. If we go back to the furthest hole center from that it's about an inch apart. It's gonna be 14 inches to the center of the ball. But that should do it for the review on this Blue Ox Adjustable Ball Mount, with the pintle hook for a 2" hitch. Has a 13,000 pound gross towing weight capacity..
