Overall the product looks good, fair pricing, average delivery. I am a little disappointed with how loosely it fits into my receiver. My truck is a brand new 2018 GMC Sierra. You can wiggle the hitch quite a bit, I hope this problem will not be too noisy. It can only get worse with time and wear, especially since it is Aluminum. I saw this complaint on some other reviews. The product needs to be made a little larger. You can always take material off easier than you can add material.


Comments
Robert, Thank you for your review. Some of the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500s have a factory 2-1/2 inch. This brophy ball mount part # EA40 is designed for a 2 hitch. If you have a 2-1/2 hitch the closest ball mount we have to the rise, and length that is needed is part # 45123
Titan Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Receivers, 3-1/2" Rise, 5" Drop, 16-1/2" Long - 13K

. This Reese ball mount has 3-1/2 inch rise, 5 inch and is 16- 1/2 inches long. It is rated at 13,000 lbs. If you are not sure what size factory hitch you have I have attached a link to help you measure. If it turns out you do have a 2 inch hitch, I would recommend an anti-rattle such as part BX88224. The blue ox immobilizer will tighten up the connection between the ball mount and hitch receiver to help quiet the rattle.

Hitch head and Etrailer service both exceeded my expectations. Product looks great and was delivered ahead of schedule. Nice to deal with a company that understands the importance of customer service.

Still very pleased with this hitch. Some lengths of these heads are hard to find and this was exactly what I needed.

by:

I just received this receiver hitch today & have not used it. I have been using the same typ but in a 1" rise for a year or so & I like it's light weight but I needed a bit more rise. so this 3' rise model should work even better for me.


Comments
Great!

These two items are the best when using them in the Gulf Coast area. Salt water, and the air rust items of this kind very fast. Aluminum and Stainless Steel are a good combo in salty areas.




by:

It does what it is supposed to do, but the fit is sloppy. It has significantly more hitch rattle than other draw bars I own.




by:

Thanks to etrailer.com ! This product they sell his dynamo .Always up to the task whatever I need fast friendly thank you




by:

I ordered the first time on the website, and after I didn't receive it for some time, I called and was told it is on back order. Had I known that 2 weeks earlier, would have helped. So reordered on the phone, and received it when promised. Unfortunately the shipper packed a steel ball in the same box with an aluminum hitch, and no padding around the ball. The hitch got pretty well beat up.




by:

I ordered a Brophy Ball Mount after careful consideration to what I needed. A good description really helped a lot in that process. The ball mount arrived sooner then expected and suits my needs perfectly. The price was good and the service was good. A very good product, good price and good service. I have also bought other products from them and always been happy.




by:

This is a very nicely made product, but when I used it on my factory 2015 Chevrolet Silverado hitch, it rattled and I had to remove it and return.




by:

Has kept its shine quite well. Recomend for a great looking hitch!




by:

so far so good. One year later.




by:

Great product - FAST delivery - just what I needed to work in both front and rear hitch




by:

Fit my 2018 Subaru Outback perfectly in either the drop or rise position.
I am impressed on how light weight it is.




by:

Just got it, finely machined. Have not used, boat in shop. Good price, quick delivery and good communication.

Review from a similar Reversible Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I seriously can't stop looking at my beautiful, shiny hitch receiver! I've wanted to upgrade for over a year and finally did. I feel like I just ordered this YESTERDAY, and it showed up today! Thank you so much for a QUALITY product! ?

Review from a similar Reversible Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Very nice ball mount. Smooth, one piece design. Unlike my previous ball mount, it's long enough (enough straight length between the pin hole and the beginning of the bend) to accommodate a Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II, yielding a nice, tight connection.

Attractive polished finish.

Made in Taiwan (according to the box it came in).

Photos show it attached to a Hidden Hitch Class III Hitch Receiver, secured with a Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II, and a Curt 40053 2-inch stainless steel ball.

Review from a similar Reversible Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


4 stars due to arriving with scratches and Knicks in aluminum.... 20 minutes of polishing and it looks almost perfect. Weighs 4.45#. with a 2" ball it weight 7#. Nice light weight shin buster. Would have liked it to come without scratches/Knicks over it but it's made to haul and will get them with use anyway. Almost a perfect mirror finish, very attractive.

Great looking product and fast service as usual. Now I can keep it clean and stored under my seat without the grease and rust issue. The ball mount with the 2" Brophy stainless ball and the Master Lock Pivot Hitch pin work perfect. Thanks, Garland R in Kentucky...…….

Poor packaging. The end was partially open and the Ball Mount almost came out. If any thing else was in there it did not arrive

I see that you only ordered this ball mount so nothing was lost.

  • Choosing the Correct Aluminum Hitch Ball For 2004 Ford Ranger
    The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13138 is certainly the hitch I recommend for your 2004 Ford Ranger so that the spare tire can remain stored under the vehicle. To choose the correct ball mount for your truck and trailer, it is best to measure from the top inside of the hitch receiver to the ground and from the bottom of the coupler lip to the ground. The difference in these measurements will tell us what rise or drop we need in a ball mount. Since you don't have the hitch...

  • Stainless 2 inch Hitch Ball Recommendation for a Brophy Ball Mount EA40
    For a 2 inch diameter stainless steel hitch ball to use with the Ball Mount part # EA40 that you referenced the Brophy ball part # SC23-C would work great. This ball has 2-1/8 inch long shank that is 1 inch in diameter so it would fit the # EA40 well.

  • How to Determine Correct Trailer Hitch Ball Size Needed for Travel Trailer
    I can tell you how to determine which trailer hitch ball you need for your 2012 Sportsmen Classic Series M-19BH travel trailer, and it seems likely it is a 2" hitch ball, though there would be no way we could have this type of information available. To determine the correct hitch ball you need to know what size ball the trailer's coupler will accept so that's the first detail you will need to acquire. Like I mentioned, for a trailer this size it is likely a 2" ball but you will need to...

  • Long Aluminum Ball Mount for a 2018 Subaru Outback with Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
    There are actually 2 Draw-Tite trailer hitches for the 2018 Subaru Outback: Class III # 75673 with a 2 inch receiver opening and Class II # 36493 with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. If you have the Class III 2 inch trailer hitch I recommend Brophy aluminum ball mount # EA40. It measures 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It has a drop of 4 inches or rise of 3 inches. I have linked a video review of this ball mount for you. If you have...

  • Are there Stainless Steel or Aluminum Ball Mounts
    There have been stainless steel ball mounts in the past but they were pricey so aluminum is the way to go now. Aluminum offers corrosion resistance, lighter weight, and a lower cost compared to stainless steel so it would make a good option for you. I have included a link to the right to the aluminum ball mounts we carry. I have also included a link to a help article that covers how to measure to get a ball mount with the proper rise or drop needed to tow a trailer level. Aluminum ball...

  • Looking for 10 Inch Ball Mount With 3 Inch Rise and 1 Inch Trailer Ball Mounting Hole
    The closest we can get to a 3 inch rise with an inexpensive ball mount in the length and with the trailer ball hole diameter you're wanting is the # 2753 which offers a 2-3/4 inch inch rise and a 9 inch length. The ball mount includes a hitch pin. If that won't provide enough rise for your trailer jack, CR Brophy offers an aluminum ball mount, part # EA40 that would offer a 3 inch rise, has a 10-1/2 inch length (center hitch pin hole to center ball mounting hole) and a 1 inch diameter...
