Video Transcript for Review of Brophy Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - BZ20

Today we'll be taking a look at the Brophy Ball Mount for a 2-1/2" Hitch. Now, this is going to serve as the connection point between our vehicle and our trailer. We'll have our ball mounted here. It's going to attach to our hitch via a hitch pin. Now, both of those items the ball, and the hitch pin are sold separately. You can find a lot of options at etrailer.com.

You just want to be sure to check the weight rating on both of those items. Make sure that they're up to the task of whatever you're hauling since you're really only as strong as your weakest link.Our ball mount has a nice sturdy steel construction with this black powder coat finish. Have a hollow shank there, and you can use this in the rise or the drop position. You'll just have to have your ball mounted to the side that you want it to be. So, if you want it in the drop position you'll have your ball mounted here, the rise mounted up there.

Now, this is going to work again for your 2-1/2" by 2-1/2" hitches so that's going to be typically your class four and five and up. The gross towing weight is 10,000 pounds with this, and our tongue weight is 1,000 pounds. The distance between the center of the ball hole and the center of the hitch pin hole is just over 13", 13-1/4. Our drop from the inside of the hitch opening to our platform is 2", and the rise from that same point, the inside of our hitch opening, is 3/4".The diameter of that ball hole is 1-1/4". The platform is 3/4" thick, and the pinhole accepts a 5/8" diameter pin.

That's going to do it for our look at the Brophy Ball Mount for a 2-1/2" Hitch.

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.

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

Review from a similar Brophy Heavy Duty Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


The order process with Etrailer was exceptional - quick, easy and seamless. I haven’t been able to use the hitch ball mount yet but it seems to be exactly as described. Solidly built with good welds and a significant coating.

Review from a similar Brophy Heavy Duty Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


The receiver on our Kubota is kind of tucked up under the bed. With the shorter hitches, it is hard to get to quickly to pull the clevis and drop a feed trough. This is especially important when you have 100 hungry momma cows breathing down your neck looking for more grain. This solved the concern by getting the hitch out where I could quickly get to it.

Review from a similar Brophy Heavy Duty Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Thank goodness for an extended length ball mount. I recently purchased a new 2 horse bumperpull trailer, and the tail gate was interfering with the jack post. Not acceptable! I looked for the highest quality extended length ball mount and found it with this product. Problem solved see pic. ARRIVED IN 2 DAYS! Thank you eTrailer.

Review from a similar Brophy Heavy Duty Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


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!

Review from a similar Brophy Heavy Duty Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


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!

Great ball mount. Reached out the perfect distance for our big rear bumper, while keeping it to a class IV rating. Only used it a couple times but so far it's perfect for our needs and the quality doesn't appear to be cheap. Thanks etrailer for quick shipment and excellent service.

Will I think the box that arrived with out the hitch in it is poorly designed. The box appears to have a defect in the corner allowing the trailer hitch to escape from its transportation container.

Review from a similar Brophy Heavy Duty Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This ball mount has been very handy, we tow a enclosed trailer behind our Motorhome and with a shorter ball mount our trailer on tight turns would touch the back corners of the motorhome. But haven’t had that problem any more with this mount, the couple extra inches in length solved our problem. Plus with a weight rating of 10k lbs it has plenty of strength to handle our trailer being loaded up with all our toys (atv & side by side)
