Video Transcript for Review of Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable Mount 2 Balls 2-1/2 Inch Hitch - BLU85XR

Hi everybody, Andy here with etrailer.com, and today we're gonna take a look at this Blue Ox adjustable two ball mount for 2 1/2 inch hitches. Now, this ball mount with the built-in hitch balls is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle, with a 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver and the adjustable height is going to let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. You can easily slide the ball platform up or down along the channel and secure it in place with the included pin and clips. So, I'm gonna go ahead and give you brief demonstration of that. We're gonna go ahead and remove our clips and then turn this around and remove our pins, and you can see just how easily those pins are going to slide out. Now, I currently have this set on the two inch ball, I'm gonna go ahead and turn it over to the 2 5/16 inch ball.

And before I put our platform back into the mount, I wanted to show you that this has a rubber bumper here at the back. That's part of the anti-rattle design to help reduce towing noise. So, just going to move this up a little bit, replace my pins, and you can see how easily those slide back into place so you're not gonna be at the back your vehicle struggling with this. Now, this will adjust in one inch increments giving you a maximum drop of about six inches, and then a maximum rise when you flip this over of about 5 1/4 inches. And as I mentioned, we have two different size hitch balls that are on this platform here, and with the two inch ball, which we have right here at the bottom, you are going to get a gross towing weight of 10,000 pounds with a tongue weight of 1,000 pounds.

And then with our 2 5/16 inch hitch ball, you're gonna get a gross towing weight of 20,000 pounds with a tongue weight of 2,000 pounds. So, you're gonna have the ability to tow trailers with different size couplers. Now, this is made of a heavy-duty steel construction, this ball mount is solid steel. And it has a really nice textured black powder coating that looks like it's been applied pretty thick, so I don't think it's going to chip or peel away easily at all, so that's gonna help resist that rust and corrosion. And it has these rear gussets right here as you can see that are going to help add strength to this mount.

Now, the dual ball platform is a solid forged steel with a yellow zinc plating that's going to provide superior rust protection. Now, as you have seen here, a hitch pin and clip are included to secure this to your hitch receiver, however this is an investment that you're making, so I would recommend taking a look at the Infiniterule hitch lock for 2 1/2 inch hitches. We carry that here at etrailer.com and on your screen, you see the item number for that hitch lock. And that is going to deter theft of this adjustable ball mount if you use that, so I would recommend taking a look at that, just to make sure that you're protecting your investment. You can take that item number that you see on your screen, put it in the search field of our website here at etrailer.com and it will take you to that hitch lock that will work with this ball mount.

Now, the pin hole diameter is 5 1/8 of an inch and as you can see, we do have two of them. And just some measurements that I took earlier that I would like to share with you, so you can be sure that this is going to work for your particular application. Measuring the distance from the first hitch pin hole to the center of our ball, we're sitting at about 10 1/2 inches. Then, if you move to the second hitch pin hole to the center of the ball, it's about 11 1/2 inches. And then the distance from the first hitch pin hole to the attachment holes, is about seven inches. Then, if you move to the second hitch pin hole, that's going to be eight inches from center to center. And then the distance from the first hitch pin hole to our gussets here, we're sitting right at about 3 3/8 inches. And then finally, the distance from the second hitch pin hole to the rear of our shank, we're sitting at about 3 1/4 inches. Now, this does have a limited lifetime warranty, and you're gonna get an instruction sheet to help you make sure that you are using this correctly and that you have everything installed correctly. And if this meets the specifications that you are looking for, I think you're gonna be very happy with this ball mount. It's really high-quality and very well-built, and I think it's going to last you quite some time. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy, thank you for joining me..

  • Locking Hitch Pin and Anti-Rattle Recommendations for 20K Blue Ox Adjustable 2-Ball Mount
    We definitely have a lock and an anti-rattle device for your Blue Ox Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch # BLU85XR but since this has a solid shank we will need to use 2 pieces as opposed to a part that has them integrated together. I recommend picking up the InfiniteRule Hitch Lock # 34061072-D and the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-062 to accomplish all of this. The InfiniteRule is a simple yet durable locking hitch pin and the Quiet Hitch uses a clamp around the collar of the hitch...
