Looks good but haven’t towed with it yet. Price was a little higher after conversation and shipping but looks like a decent product. My truck is a dodge 3500 with a 6” long arm lift on 37” tires and this 12” looks like it will be perfect for my cargo and utility trailer’s. Other note it was a little loose in my 2” hitch so I added a receiver clamp to stop rattle.




by:

This extreme rise ball mount is what I need to make my passenger car into a back-up trailer puller. It is well built and has a welded strut to reinforce the long rise/drop ball mount. The "shock damper" feature is sure to help absorb the leverage movement that a rise/drop ball mount passes on to the hitch receiver itself.




by:

This is a ball hitch mount that is not a standard unit, problem I had I purchased a new p/u going from a 2500 series which stood higher to a 1500 series standing lower by 4" also lowering 3 1/2" towing a 4800 pound boat as we all know, needing to tow level, that wasn't going to happen, this ball mount did the trick, fits D.O.T. standards also more than what i needed for weight requirements


Comments
Ball mount achieved the goal for my height requirements, what I didnt explain the piston action in the ball mount, it does cushion the back and fourth while towing considerably if and when I will buy one with it, also you got it to me in two days great device l

by:

Perfect for what I needed it for. I use it on the front of my UTV to secure it to my trailer with the LA .Guard Dog, Trailer Dog. Works great!




by:

Bought to tow car on dolly behind motorhome. Well constructed, good fit. Haven't roadtested yet but don't anticipate any problems. Good price, great customer service.




by:

Strong, fits into hitch well. Wish I would have bought a 10" drop though. The local trailer shop recommended the 12" drop, but with the weight of the trailer it hangs down lower than I would like.




by:

Meets the needs. Excellent service from etrailer.




by:

Excellent product. Using it on 2019 F-250 Powerstroke hauling a cargo trailer. Replaced a 6” drop mount that caused too much tilt of the trailer. Can’t comment yet on the smock absorbing feature.




by:

the drop hitch was Just what I needed for my trucks lift. fits perfect and well made. the service was awesome as well. shipped it out same day.




by:

Exactly what I needed. This fits on my front receiver, which is hidden at the bottom of my grill. I needed the extended drop to keep the trailer level when manouvering. The hitch is of good quality. I’ve only used it at very low speeds. Works for me.




by:

I purchased a 2020 GMC Yukon XL Denali which is about 9" taller than my 1988 Chevy Suburban was. The Convert-A-Ball Mount with a 12" Drop is the right amount of drop I needed so I could keep all 3 of my trailers (box, boat, and car trailers) level with the ground. The Convert-A-Ball Mount with a 12" Drop and a 7,000 lb load rating has been a very good product for me.




by:

Exactly what I needed!
High quality and
great service.




by:

Wasn't sure this was what I needed but this hitch worked great. Seems to be well made. Truck has 40 inch tires and 11 inch lift and now i can pull camper and a small trailer without putting the smaller tires back on.




by:

Great looking drop hitch and unbelievably fast shipping. Works great on my 2012 dodge diesel with 6" lift and 37" tires. The 10,000 lb. rating is the highest I could find with this much drop not to mention about half the cost of any other hitch I found. Customer service and shipping verification follow up is second to none. I'll be buying from them from now on.




by:

The hitch appears to be made very well and heavy duty. I haven't had a chance to tow with it yet, but this was the only company I could find that carried a 12 inch drop down in stock. I had two other companies cancel my order because the 12 inch drop was no longer available through them. Excellent price also.




by:

Wow. Product shipped same day, regular ground, but arrived only 2 days later. Had the cushion feature on it that I hadn't even noticed or expected. My Toyota truck is lifted 6" with a Nissan Titan hitch custom welded on so this brought it down to the perfect height for me (14"). Great value too. Thanks!




by:

I am very happy with the 12 inch drop hitch i bought it was just the way it was described on the web site it will work perfect for pulling the car trailer to the races.




by:

Works great on my Hummer to drop the hitch for my smaller trailer




by:

Parts were in stock and delivered ahead of schedule

Perfect Fit!

with 3.5" lift. This was the exact product to get the trailer back on level.
Great service and fast shipping.

Good customer service and quality part

This was a very hard-to-find item for my trailer height. ETrailer came through with the exact ball mount I needed. I'll make sure to check with Etrailer wehenever I need anything for my towing needs.

See what our Experts say about this Convert-A-Ball Trailer Hitch Ball Mount



  • Can Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount part # AMSC12 Handle 535 lb of Tongue Weight
    The Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount part # AMSC12 that you referenced actually has a tongue weight capacity of 2,000 lbs so it would easily handle your tongue/hitch weight of 535 lbs.

  • Does the Cushioning of the Convert a Ball # AMSC12 Allow Much Movement In and Out
    Sounds like you are asking how much movement the built in cushion of the Convert a Ball # AMSC12 allows when installed. It really doesn't move much at all. There would be a little bit of movement but for the most part it would not be sliding in and out of the hitch opening at all. The reason for this is that the tongue weight of the trailer pressed hard enough vertically on the ball mount that it pins the ball mount in the hitch.

  • Safe to Install Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount Upside for Rise on F-150 Front Mounted Hitch
    The Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # AMSC12 referenced in your question can be safely installed and used in an upright or upside-down position in order to provide the needed drop or rise. To get the 10-3/4" rise from the 2 inch hitch receiver of your F-150, you will just flip the ball mount and install like normal using the hitch pin hole and hitch pin/clip. Keep in mind that the distance from the center of the pin hole on the ball mount shank to the nearest part of...

  • How is Drop Measured and Determined on a Ball Mount
    The drop in a ball mount is measured from the top of the shank that inserts into the receiver tube to the top of the ball platform. See the video I've lined of ball mount # AMSC12. Around the 1:15 mark the drop measurement is demonstrated. To determine how much drop (Or rise) you need you'll want to have your tow vehicle and trailer on level ground and measure from the ground to the inside top of the receiver tube and from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler. Then find the...

  • How to Pick Out the Correct Ball Mount
    I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will first measure the height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch while on level ground. Next, you will measure the coupler height from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when the trailer is on level ground. Next, you will need to compute the difference. If the hitch height is...

  • Is the Bushing of the Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSC12 Replaceable
    The bushing in the Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSC12 that you referenced is not available as a separate item to be replaced, but we have never heard of it wearing out and we have been selling this ball mount for a long time so I don't think you should worry about that.

  • 12 inch Drop Ball Mount Recommendation for Towing a Horse Trailer Level
    If you do need a ball mount with a 12 inch drop you would want the part # AMSC12.

  • How to Pick Out the Correct Rise/Drop Ball Mount to Tow Trailer Level
    I attached an FAQ for you to check out that details all of this, but what you need to do is get your truck and your trailer on level ground and take a couple measurements. You will need to measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on the trailer when it is sitting level, and then measure from the ground to the top of the hitch opening. Whatever the difference is the amount of rise/drop you need.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for an RV Where 12 inches of Drop are Needed to Tow Boat Trailer
    The Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSC12 that you referenced would be perfect for you all things considered. It has the drop you need (12 inches), the length you need (12-1/2 inches from pin hole to ball hole). This should not reduce the hitch capacity of your RV at all. Since your boat and trailer weigh considerably less than the capacity of the hitch you would not have to worry about that. If the weight of your boat and trailer were right at your hitch capacity it would be one thing, but you...

  • Height from Ground to Top of Hitch # 75270 When Installed On 2012 Odyssey
    When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 75270 on a 2012 Honda Odyssey we found it measured 11-1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the hitch opening. That would mean you need a rise ball mount like the # AMSC12 which has a rise of 10-3/4 inches and is our highest rise option.

  • Ball Mount Replacement for 12 inch Drop and Trailer Sits 1 inch Too Low
    We have 12 inch drops and we have 14 inch drop ball mounts but we do not have a 13 inch. Going an inch lower would be better than an inch higher though. But you did say that the 12 inch drop put your trailer 1 inch lower than that your hitch so that would mean you would want an 11 inch drop instead like the part # 80248.

  • Recommended Ball Mount with 9-1/2 inch Rise
    Between the two ball mount options referenced in your question, I recommend going with the Convert-A-Ball # AMSC12 that has the larger 10-3/4 inch rise. This is because when loading your tow vehicle up for a trip with your trailer, there is bound to be some rear sag that will lower the ball mount even further. Choosing a ball mount with a slightly higher rise than you need will help to account for this. Another option you may consider is the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 80248 that has a 9-3/4...

  • Can Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSC12 Be Used in the Rise Poistion
    The Convert-A-Ball # AMSC12 cushioned ball mount can indeed be used in the rise position, which would provide 10-3/4 inches of rise. Keep in mind this is an extreme rise. Usually, needing a rise that large would be a good indication that you really shouldn't tow that trailer with your vehicle, but because the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailers are so light, you won't have a problem. You'll also need a 2 inch diameter ball like part # 63845.

  • Using Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount with Surge Breaks
    The Convert-A-Ball cushioned ball mount # AMSC12 is absolutely compatible with the surge breaks on your tow dolly. You may not even notice it the cushion interacting with your surge couple. The way cushion is designed is that the more pressure that is put on it the firmer it gets. The cushion itself is so dense that more force would be needed to compress that cushion than to actuate the surge coupler. Where this ball mount truly shines is when there's a lot of road shock that needs to be...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation that is 12 inches Long and 12 inches of Drop
    12 inches long or 12 inches of drop? For a 12 inch drop ball mount we have the # AMSC12 which also happens to have a distance of 12-1/2 inches from the center of the ball hole to the center of the pin hole. Then for a hitch ball you would want the part # C40007 for a 2-5/16 inch.

  • Will Convert a Ball Ball Mount Fit Curt Trailer Hitch

    Yes, we do carry multiple hitches, ball mounts, that are similar to the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches item # AMSC12 you were looking at. The closest comparable product would be the Brophy Trailer Hitch Ball Mount 10" Drop, 7,500 lbs item # BM10.

  • Will a Cushioned Ball Mount Work with Surge Trailer Brakes
    The cushion inside of the Convert-A-Ball cushioned ball mount # AMSC4 would have only a slight affect on the surge coupler on your trailer. You may not even notice it. The cushion is very dense and the more pressure that is put on it the firmer it gets. It would take more force to compress that cushion than to actuate the surge coupler. Cushioned ball mount # AMSC4 has a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop but there are other options if you need a different rise or drop to tow the trailer level: #...

  • Is Using High Low Adapter Good Idea Instead of Large Rise/Drop Ball Mount
    When you use a hitch adapter like the Roadmaster High Low Adapter RM-048-0 you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch it's installed in by half due to added leverage and movement. So this is not an ideal solution for anyone but when you are close to the vehicle's towing capacity it's not a viable option that's safe either. The ball mount we carry that has the most rise is the Convert a Ball # AMSC12 which has a rise of 10-3/4 inches. It can be confusing where exactly to measure to determine...
