Video Transcript for Draw-Tite 3 Inch Hitch Ball Mount Review

Hey, everybody out of here with etrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the draw-tite trailer ball mount. So, this is going to be for our three inch hitch receiver. So, you want to make sure that it's going to be able to fit your hitch receiver that you have. And this is going to be a very, very heavy duty ball mount. It's made of forged steel, and it's going to give us a massive eight inch drop or a six inch rise so that all this comes into play on what you're really hauling.

But, you do have the option here. There's a couple of things we're going to have to get first, and we're going to need a hitch pin and clip. The diameter of the hole is about 5A seven inch. Instead of just getting a basic hitch pin and clip where you can just pull the pin, pull the clip, and you can take the ball mount out, grab one that's locking just because they make them for a reason and we just want to make sure that this thing's going to stay connected to our truck. So I would highly recommend doing it.

We have a bunch of them here. I just like this one right here, just because it is a pickles lock and we have crazy customizable keys that are going to be really, really hard to match. And, once we go like this and push it in, it's nice and solid and locked into place. So I like that. Also, another thing we're going to need is a trailer ball.

So you want to make sure it's going to match up with the coupler, just look at the top of your coupler. And that should tell you what size it is, if you don't already know. So, another thing is, we need to make sure that it's gonna, the ball that we pick is going to have a inch and a quarter diameter shank. Why Well, that is the size of the hole. We don't want anything bigger because it won't fit in and anything smaller, is going to have way too much play.

So see how it's kind of the same exact size Well, that's what we're looking for. Just because this thing is extremely heavy duty, we want to make sure that we match up everything nicely. The ball is about 20,000 pounds, the ones that we have right here. But, the ball mount goes up to 21,000 pounds. So if you wanna not limit your ball mount by a thousand pounds is get a ball that's going to be rated for at least 21,000 pounds and you should be good. It's going to have a tongue weight capacity of 2100 pounds. And again, when it comes to these bigger ball mounts, you just want in something strong, this is going to be extremely strong. There's not any adjustments to it, so you're kind of stuck with either the eight inch drop or the six inch rise. But another thing you can do is there's other type of trailer balls that will actually have a little bit longer of a plate here, whether it's an inch or two inches. So you're not really stuck with the rise and drop with a fixed ball mount like this. You can compensate that with a different type of ball. So an adjustable ball mount, yeah, they're nice, but typically you only have to adjust it one or two times, so you can just grab a ball to compensate for that extra riser, drop in what you get. All in all, this is going to be a very, very nice and strong option for you, whether you're just hauling around your fun toys or just doing crazy work on the construction site. It looks good, powder-coated finish, and again, it's just forged and very, very strong. A useful measurement is the distance between the center of your hitch pinhole to the center of the ball, and that's about ten and a half inches. So it's not going to be too close to your vehicle, but it's also not super far out from the vehicle. So, that's just going to prevent a lot of the contacting may get, if you have a toolbox or a bike rack on the front of your trailer. So that's always kind of nice thing to have and measure just to make sure not going to have any issues. That's pretty much it for a look at the draw-tite trailer ball mount..

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Working in the sand and grass of my driveway my wife and I installed our new etrailer receiver hitch. Great fit and finish! Went right on as described in the online guide. Hitch required a spacer washer on top back bolt attachment point. Taped it on so it would not move while lifting in place and it stayed right there! Used a car jack to raise up and hold the hitch into the underside of the trunk tighten the bolts and reattached the tail pipe done.
Now we can pull our Sunfish Sailboat any where the car will go.

Works great.

I needed an extended ball mount for my new Jeep in order for my utility trailer tongue to clear the rear mounted spare tire. Item is as described on the web site and was received earlier than expected.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great products and service. I was able to order everything I needed to add a tow hitch and ball to my 2006 Jeep liberty. Very fast shipping. They even called me to verify orders and availability. Clear and easy to follow installation instructions. I hauled an [retailer] trailer from Texas to Ohio without any issues. Even bought a trailer and use it frequently for hardware stoe runs.

Flipped mine upside down to use the 3/4 lift and really got the trailer level. Worked great.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Overall, I have to say that I am satisfied although not particularily impressed. The finish on the ball mount is mediocre ... there are several spots where the paint is chipped off for instance. It was received today and installed today with no use yet the pictures show the areas in question. You can tell by the label installation that someone who really didn't care rushed the operation. It also fit considerably looser than the Reese bar that I removed. I had to apply several turns of duct tape around the tube to make it as snug as the original. As I said, it'll do fine, just not impressed.


Comments
I havent used this bar since last May 2014 but it worked fine and I really dont have any complaints. Under the circumstances, Id probably bump it up a star on the rating although everything I said in the initial review was valid. I have since sold the bar with the bicycle rack that I sold on Craigs List.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Product as advertised. Wished I'd paid more attention to what was included and not included. Seller web site did a good job indicating other suggestions on what would go with what you were viewing. So much so, I became dependent on it, and over looked the fact that the pin to hold the ball mount was not included in either the receiver or ball mount. I overlooked this and had to go out and buy this somewhere else. Other than that ordering was easy, and I received everything in a timely manner. It's worth noting that their tracking was dead on as well. It's nice tracking the progress of a package you are waiting for so you can plan your installation. And again, they do a nice job of following up letting you know they received, shipped the order and a link to follow it in transit.

High quality (as best I can tell). Fits my etrailer Hitch Receiver just right. I suggest getting a locking pin (also at etrailer.com) to slow down would-be thieves.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This mount is cut at about 22 degrees at the insertion point. It makes installing much easier on those receivers that are welded slightly off as my class 5 to class 4 receiver was thus making the opening tight. It is also a nicer looking and feeling mount, welds are great, paint is great-a quality mount!

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I had to return my hitch because the person that was supposed to install it for me fell through so I had to use somebody that installed their own hitches but I kept this ball mount even though the other one came with one because it is so much better for the same money. This is such a good product. Your shipping is amazing your people are helpful and were gracious even about the return of the other item. You did such a good job I would recommend your company to anyone. My nephew recommended your sight after his really good experience with your company and his business is using your hitches to pull trailers and they are performing well after several years.

Actually have it flipped over to raise the height of the ball because the hitch is low compared to the height of the trailer.

Probably the best value you can find for light-duty towing. If you're not towing anything particularly heavy, you can buy this, screw the ball on and forget it.

The staff made ordering easy and when I got my order, there was a hole in the box and part of the bolts, washers and nuts where missing. I called and straight away they sent what I needed. The video made the installation easier. I recommend them to everyone!!

2008 Honda Element SC setup was perfect with this turned over to provide 2 3/4" rise to the 2" ball. My jetski trailer was perfectly level with that setup.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Strong and seems to be well made and well finished. One-inch ball mounting hole. I used this for a Curt hitch mounted on a 2014 Forester and pulls a small Harbor Freight trailer. Perfect height and trailer is level. Warning - don't get their hitch pin, it does not have a hole for a cotter pin, only a weak clip that I would not trust.


Comments
Still going strong. I use it to pull a 4x8 utility trailer. Also sometimes plug a hitch carrier into it when I want to haul a few bags of mulch or a couple of propane cylinders or gas cans.

I needed a longer ball receiver on order to accommodate the bike carrier that I purchased and found this one at etrailer.com. The service was great and the expedited shipping worked great. I received the product in Canada 2 days after I placed the order. Great service and an excellent product. Ready to hit the road!!

The drop hitch worked perfectly with the front hitch receiver to locate the ball at the perfect height. Parking a trailer in a tight location is easy using the front hitch.

Just as advertised and solves my problem of trailer tongue level to hitch position. Delivered on schedule with no hiccups. Fits perfectly in the 2" factory receiver on my Jeep JKU. The 2" ball in the picture is a reused one not new which is why it has rust on it.

Great product, fits perfectly, easy install, really nice looking too.

I did have to remove the muffler, not just let it down, to get to the heat shield but it was easy and quick and works great!
Thanks for being so attentive to my needs and getting me the right products.

Awesome!
