Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (341 Customer Reviews)

Sturdy steel ball mount with solid, 1-piece shank measures 10-1/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole. Angle-cut shank slides easily into your hitch. Powder coat finish over a-coat base provides excellent rust protection.


Its been a year and I aint broke it yet.
use this hitch to tow my 7Klb trailer. The trailer is tongue heavy and I needed something rugged to tow it with. Haven't had any troubles with this hitch.


Solid metal casting. Ball mounting hole is 1.25"; hole for the drawbar pin is a shade over 5/8". Approximately 3.5" from the center of the pin to the inside of the drop; approximately 10.5" from the center of the pin to the center of the ball. Drop is 6". Thickness at the ball mount surface is a hair over 1". Width at the receiver is just under 2", and at the ball mount it's a hair over 3". Markings at the ball mount surface are "MAX TRAILER 16000 LBS, MAX TONGUE 2,400 LBS, V-5 SAE J684"; markings at the receiver billet are "PAT#D469723 MADE IN CHINA SHA012210".


This ball mount fit the SUV just right. I needed a 5 inch rise and the mount angled away from the bumper. However, the load capacity was way more than I needed, but the fit made up for that. It's a little loose in the receiver so I will be adding a stabalizer to lock it in place.


I had to take trip with my new Ram 1500 Bighorn and towing my utility trailer with my old hitch wasn't having my trailer level.
These items made it level and had no issues at all.
Thank you,


Did not work on my truck due to custom rear bumper. Looks great on my friend's 2018 F350 4 X 4 diesel!


I bought this hitch for a trailer I use to haul logs with. It is very well built and should last forever.



That is a very interesting trailer you have there, is it custom made? Just curious, whats the GTWR of your trailer?

Patrick B.


I will send an email to Frank to see if he has anything to add. Keep an eye here in case he replies.


This product is really stout, and will give great peace of mind while towing my new 10,000# boat and trailer.

Unrelated, but worth mentioning is that the service by is exemplary. This is my second purchase from them, the first of which arrived promptly after excellent communication about the status of my order, and the products were even better than expected. On the second order, the box containing the goods was damaged in transit, and this 31# Ball Mount had exited the package through a hole poked from within and must still be rattling around in a UPS plane or truck somewhere. I took a digital picture of the box and called customer service to report the problem. About half an hour after making the call and forwarding the image by E-mail I got notification that a replacement had been shipped free of charge. Much to my surprise it arrived the next morning. The only request was that I keep the damaged box for a while in case UPS wanted to pick it up to verify the report.

This kind of service is exceptional, and will make me a permanent customer of


Very heavy duty hitch! Works great!



Still working great!


Nice steel ball mount with very little flex, especially for such a big drop. Bought a new ball at the same time and put it right to work. Nice black enamel paint finish.

Tim T.


Keeping the ball greased makes hook-up easy. Very pleased with the way it performs.


20 lbs of receiver hitch probably not going to have a problem with it.


The quality of this 6000 lb. rated hitch ball riser is better than the 7500 lb. rated riser it is replacing. Your videos helped me get the exact riser size that I really needed instead of the riser I bought from the company that installed my trailer hitch. Thank you.


This was a gift for my son. I also have two more that i use. Very strong and i don’t have to worry about breaking then as i have done with the welded ones. Safety is very important to me.


Product was exactly as it should be. E trailer was great with their customer service. The first hitch they sent never made it to my home, I called e trailer and let them know and they sent another one out the same day.


Leveled the trailer out while towing, little loose In the receiver, probably wrap it with some electrical tape...good price, good shipping.


I just received this new drop hitch and it feels like it was built from tank parts. Solid steel. All I can say is don't drop this on your foot or you won't be going on any trailer hauling trip. Great 6" drop, excellent length to get a good reach behind my vehicle, 1-1/4" shank hole for heavy duty ball mounting. I don't expect I'll ever have to replace this part!


Got the ball mount in no time, even with free shipping! Haven't had a chance to actually use it, but it seems rugged and well made! Also ordered a couple of other items from E-Trailer and they all arrived in record time. Also had an email conversation with Michael H. about a connecgtor for the trailer brakes and my P3. His information was spot on - Thanks Michael H.!


Great service, very prompt shipping. Got the HD 6" drop, and 10,000 # 2" ball and pin & clip. This will help to level my car trailer. Weight rating is higher than needed but , I'd rather be on the plus side.


Good strong ball mount. Will have no doubts about pulling our 2 horse trailer. The weight rating is overkill, but it is better to be safe than sorry.


This forged ball mount is a solid, hefty product, no doubts about its tow capacity. It fit my Class IV Hitch receiver as advertised. Delivery was fast...received it a day earlier than expected.


Exactly what I was hoping to find in the market..... It shipped so fast, I couldn't believe it! Five minutes after I received it, I put it on my car and the "higher" ball hitch level is now perfect for my boat trailer.


The trailer hitch was just as expected -- it's a 6" drop ball mount. However, the customer service was unexpectedly great!


Great selection of ball mounts, 6" drop mounts are a rare find at any of the local stores. Great product, good price, fast shipping. Thanks Etrailer.


Very Strong, Sleek-looking ball mount that gives adequate towing height to accept my boat trailer. I take comfort knowing it's cast solid (not hollow like lesser class ball mounts) and capable of supporting my load.


Ordered this ball hitch from the website. Very prompt service. So far, I am very pleased with this product and this company.


For this product there should be another rating category; "Outstanding". The description for this ball mount is completely accurate. It is a solid, one-piece, massive forging unlike most mounts that are rectangular tubing with a welded-on drop piece. This thing looks like it should be on a D-9 dozer or a tank! Anything my truck can pull, this will handle with ease.

  • Dimensions, Angle of the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 40332
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 40332 and took some measurements for you. The dimension from the center of the ball hole to the upturn of the arm is 2-1/8 inches. The second measurement, from the upturn to the top of the shank, is 7 inches. See the image showing the dimensions which I have attached for you. I spoke to the engineer at Draw-Tite who designed the ball mount and he said the angle of the drop is 52.696 degrees.

  • Selecting a Ball Mount for a 2002 Ford F-250 On a 4 Inch Lift Kit
    Ball mounts are typically ed based on the trailer height and vehicle hitch height. With a 4 inch lift on your truck you will certainly need a ball mount with a significant to it. I imagine you will need a 6 or 8 inch like part # 40332 for 6 inches, or part # 4283 for 8 inch. To find out exactly which size you need to keep your trailer level, you will need to take measurements of your trailer height and hitch height.

  • Availability of a Forged Ball Mount with a 6 inch Rise
    Out of the ball mounts we carry that the manufacturers have labeled as being forged, the closest one to a 6 inch rise is going to be # 40332, that you have referenced. To get that additional inch, you could use a ball with a 1 inch rise like # C40035. This is a 2-5/16 inch diameter ball with a 1 inch rise and 10,000 pound capacity.

  • Extra Long Ball Mount to Allow Installation of Towtector Debris Guard on F-350
    It sounds like you are looking for a longer ball mount to use in your hitch to allow installation of the Towtector debris guard. I have linked you to our page for extra long 2-inch 10K ball mounts. For a 2-inch size we offer the Brophy # BH20 which measures 13-1/4-inches from the center of hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole and either 3/4-inch rise or 2-inch drop. There are longer ball mounts but they do not have the 10K rating you need.

  • Will the Curt Ball Mount 40332 Clear the Bumper on a 2019 CX-9?
    The Draw-Tite # 76020 that you have on your 2019 Mazda CX-9 will have the pin hole recessed 6 inches from the closest edge of the bumper. With the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 40332 being 10-1/4 inches from the center of hitch pin hole to the center of ball hole, there should be no issues using these together. If you do not have a 2 inch ball for this, I suggest going with the Curt # A-90. This is rated up to 10,000 pounds and has the needed 1 1/4 inch shank to fit the # 40332. The Curt Pin...

    There are plenty of weight distribution shanks that have the drop you will need. I have included a link to the main page for you. If you already have a weight distribution system then I would need to know the brand you have to determine which shank would work best. Or for a weight distribution system you could use # RP66542 and then use shank # RP63971 that has a max drop of 6-1/2 inches. This system is rated for 600 to 1,200 pounds tongue weight the the trailer is loaded and ready to...

  • Super Extra Long Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2012 Toyota RAV4
    I believe the correct ball mount for you to use would be the Brophy Ball Mount # BM20. This ball mount has a distance of 13-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the nearest part of the ball mount platform, and since the hitch on your 2012 Toyota RAV4 has a distance of 9.5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point of the bumper I believe this ball mount would work well for you. This ball mount also has a rise of 2-3/4 inches, and if you get a...

  • How to Choose the Correct Ball Mount and Hitch Ball for a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4
    Before purchasing a ball mount and a hitch ball you should measure the height of your trailer hitch and compare that to the height of your coupler. I have attached an article that shows how to measure your hitch height and coupler height to find the correct rise or drop you need in a ball mount. Once you have determined the rise or drop that you need, you will want to choose a ball mount with the correct rise or drop that is rated for the weight of your trailer.

    The hollow shank ball mounts typically carry a lower weight rating than what you are looking for. You do not mention what kind of rise/drop you are needing, but for a 12,000 pound rating I would recommend a forged ball mount. Part # BWBMHD30010 offers a 1 inch rise or 2 inch drop, part # 40331 has a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop, and part # 40332 features a 5 inch rise or a 6 inch drop.

  • Ball Mount with 5-1/4 Inch Rise and 1 Inch Diameter Ball Hole for a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    Rise or drop doesn't have to be exact. If you can get it within 1 inch you will be just fine. We have # C24WR which has a 5 inch rise and has a 1 inch diameter ball hole. Or another option is to use # C45336 with bushing # F-2. The bushing acts as a spacer allowing you to use a 1 inch diameter ball shank in a 1-1/4 inch ball hole.

  • Recommend Ball Mount To Clear Rear Bumper of 2008 Toyota Sienna
    We do have a ball mount that should work well for your towing setup, but, the item you referenced, Forged Ball Mount, part # 40332, will not provide the 7 inches of clearance from the pin hole to the edge of the bumper. The item you selected, Titan Ball Mount, part # 45291, cannot be used in the rise position, so it will not work for your towing setup either. A good solution to provide rise to keep your trailer fairly level when towing and to clear your rear bumper would be the Curt...

  • Recommended Ball Mount With 5-1/2 Inch Rise For 2-Inch Hitch
    We do not have any fixed ball mounts with a 5-1/2 inch rise specifically but we do have them with a 5-inch or 6-inch rise like part # 40332 and part # C24WR. You may want to consider an adjustable mount that gives you some flexibility. The ball mount I recommend is the Convert-a-Ball Adjustable-Height Ball Mount, part # TK5007. This is adjustable up to a 10-inch drop or an 9-inch rise. If you need a 2-inch hitch ball I recommend part # 63845. For a 1-7/8 inch ball I recommend part # C40051.

We have a combination that will work well for hooking up your trailer to your 2014 Toyota Sienna. First up: the hitch. We actually have an etrailer hitch designed for the 2014 Sienna.

  • Ball Mount for Towing Rental Trailer with 2022 Honda Odyssey
    U-Haul rental trailers typically have a coupler height of 18 inches. When we installed the etrailer # e98855 on a 2022 Honda Odyssey, we found the receiver height to be 13 inches. This would be a height difference of 5 inches. The Draw-Tite # 40332 ball mount offers a 5 inch rise, so it would be a pretty good choice for you. However, I'd go with the Curt # C45336 instead. It's a little less expensive and has plenty of capacity for your needs. For a 2 inch trailer ball, you'd use # A-90....
