Video Transcript for Brophy Ball Mount Review

What's up everybody It's AJ with Today we're gonna be checking out this Brophy Ball Mount. So this is gonna go in a two and a half inch hitch, and it's gonna bring the ball out just a little bit more to give you more room when you're towing for those tight turns. Let's check it out. Now the extra length on the ball mount is gonna help you out. Get more space between the trailer and your truck, which is gonna help out when you turns.

You're less likely to jackknife if you have one of those trailers that has a shorter tongue. This is just gonna get further away and help you out going down the road. Measuring from the top of our hitch here on the inside to where the ball sits, it's gonna have a two inch drop. Now you can put it in the rise position too, that'd be just flipping this upside down, then the ball will sit right here level with the top of the hitch. I do wanna point out that the ball does not come with the ball mount, so I can loosen up and I can show you.

You want to also get one that has the right diameter. There's gonna be an inch and a quarter for this inch and a quarter diameter opening on the mount and make sure you get the right one that fits your coupler and the ball mount. I tighten the ball down hand-tight, but you're gonna need to torque this when you actually go to put this on there. So this is not tight enough for it. This is just demonstration purposes, so make sure you torque it down to the specified instructions.

This is gonna have a trailer weight rating of 10,000 pounds. It's gonna have a tongue weight rating of 1,000 pounds, so just keep that in mind with what kind of truck and trailer combination you're using. Now, it's also got a black powder coat finish on this sturdy steel construction so you don't have to worry about rust or corrosion if you leave this in the hitch and the elements. It also doesn't come with its own hitch pin, so I suggest getting one on the site. Might as well get a locking hitch pin as a recommendation just to lock up the ball mount so that nobody can mess with it when you're not around.

Overall, it's gonna be a good ball mount, especially if your truck and your trailer is already level. You only have one trailer with one coupler, so this is gonna work fine. That extra space from the hitch and the coupler is gonna help you out too. If you're having problems with tight turns, your trailer coming a little too close, this will get more space in between there. Now for some suggestions, if maybe you have two different trailers or a few different, they have different size couplers and you don't wanna switch this out all the time or they're at different heights, you can get an adjustable ball mount. There's plenty of options out there to look at to wear on the fly. You can just move it up or down, switch it out. Even some of 'em have a dual ball design where you can flip it and then be on your way once it's hooked up to the trailer. Well, I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out. Hope this helped.

It does sound like it had a tough journey and it that the ball mount fell out. I will have our Customer Service team have this taken care of for you.


Exactly as described. Just what I need to tow my 10,000lb race trailer and gain the swing clearance required for my power lift gate. Quick shipping to Canada


This unit should have additional holes so it can be used closer to the truck


Everything was just as described. incredibly fast delivery!!!


Great value, fast delivery. Thanks


fast, efficient & informative


Shipped fast, looks great. I have not used it yet. The only issue was just with packaging, the hitch fell out of the box as UPS handed it to my wife. Luckily it did not hit her foot.


Exactly as described. This extended length
mount will allow tighter turns without jack knifing. I am very pleased.


Perfect and was hard to find since the newer trucks are just starting to use this 2.5" size as does my 2018 F250.

All as it should.


Heavy solid build.I needed one several inches longer than average ,and this was perfect.


Product arrived on time and was exactly as described








The original order for this mount busted out of the shipping box while in transit to me. I notified etrailer sending them a picture of the ripped-open box and they notified me that a replacememt would be send ASAP. I received the replacement mount in 7 days.

Exactly what we needed to extend our hitch 4" and be able to open our tailgate with trailer attached. Excellent service. Received our hitch very quickly. Would definitely order again.


Just received the product and installed it (7/10). Ordered June 28th and it was in stock. Called Theresa -who was wonderful - and George T. said item was to be here July 6. The products are fine, the service was fine, but the delivery times changed 3 times.But, I would still recommend E-Trailer and the product.


I’m very impressed with the customer service I received from etrailer. Issues related to loss of product during shipping were resolved in an extremely courteous and professional manner.


Great prices very good customer service shipping is excellent I buy most my truck and r v parts here why look anywhere else


Heavy duty, good quality. I can’t say enough about your customer service. The first hitch that came had made a large hole in the box, the hitch fell out!(box was empty when delivered). I sent an email late Sunday night and I was ‘shocked’ to get a response later that same night! Another hitch was mailed that next morning.


Ball mount is awesome! Just what I needed, my aftermarket bumper has a long step that wont allow a normal hitch to work. It sits underneath the step, the only thing that would of work is a ball mount with more of a drop. Then my trailer would of dragged on the ground. I don't have a lift on my F150. I forgot to take some before photos but I have the after photos and its just awesome. Hope this helps!


I was looking for an extended ballmount for my dually as a regualr size ballmount with a 2" drop would not clear my heavy duty bumper. I have a 6" drop but it is too low for my new car hauler trailer. After finding this Brophy ball mount, BH20, I ordered it right away. I was pleasantly surprised to receive it in only a few days. I expected to get it in about a week.
This ballmount is just as described. Solid, heavy-duty(10K lbs. with a 1K lb. tongue weight) and fits great. See my before and after pics. The extension is enough to clear my bumper while using a 2" drop. Thanks, etrailer!

  • 2 1/2” Ball Mount Extension for Tailgate Clearance
    I have a solution for your tailgate clearance issue but we do not have a 2 1/2" extension that doesn't reduce that is also around the length you are looking for. I recommend going with an extended ball mount. Item # BZ20 is the Brophy Ball Mount for 2-1/2" hitches it has 3/4" rise or 2" drop and is 13-1/4" long. I have linked a review video.

  • 10to 12 Extended Ball Mount For Class-5 Hitch With 2 Receiver?
    In your question you state that you have a Class-5 hitch, and they come with a 2-1/2” receiver opening. You also state that you have a 2” receiver. I will offer a ball mount solution for either size receiver. For a 2” receiver you can use the 13-1/4” long Brophy # BM20 with 2” drop, or the 14-1/4” long Curt # D-28 with 6” drop. For a 2-1/2” receiver you can use the 12-1/4” long Convert-A-Ball # AMSCV-6 with 6” drop, or the 10-1/2” long Draw-Tite # 45291 with a 7-3/4” drop, or the 13-1/4”...
