Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - CB28Z Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part #CB28Z, this is the Brophy 2 inch Hitch Ball with the 1 inch rise. The hitch ball is going to provide a good connection point for your trailers coupler. This is going to provide a high rise design that lets you usually match the ball to the trailer height. The trailer hitch ball is going to sit an extra inch above the ball mount platform. This particular ball is going to have fine threads that's going to provide an exceptionally tight strong grip. This is going made from a machined steeled construction. It gives a really nice look and it's very strong and durable.

Its also going to be corrosion resistant and rust resistant because it has a really nice zinc finish on it. Your lock washer and the nut are going to be both included. The product it's going to be made right here in the USA. The hitch ball diameter is going to be 2 inches. It's going to have a capacity of 6,000 pounds. Take a measurement of the shank diameter, that's going to give us a measurement of an inch and a quarter Shank length is going to measure about 2 and half inches. Take a measurement of that rise area, that's going to measure 1 inch. The overall length from the top of the hitch ball to the bottom of the shank is going to be about 6 and half inches. So when installing this on a ball mount, you need to make sure that the ball hold diameter on the ball mount is about an inch and a quarter.

You need to be within a sixteenth of an inch of that measurement in order for this to work. You place this through the hitch ball hole on the mount or on your draw bar, on the underside of the draw bar you place on your lock washer followed by your nut and then you'll just need to get it twork 00:01:40 down to the specifications listed by the manufacturer. That's going to do it for today's look at part #CB28Z.

It's a wonderful 2" ball. 635439

Perfect great product 615068

Super heavy duty hitch ball. High quality, well made. I'm a repeat customer. FYI, You will need a 1 7/8" inch wrench or socket for the hex nut on this hitch ball to install it properly. 599336

- CB28Z

This was the right sized ball, with the appropriate rise, but the machining of the whole piece is very very poor. The ball surface is very rough and grooved and will surely wear out a 2” coupler prematurely even if greased. This is an example of a manufacturer trying to use old equipment (not sharp) to poorly machine this ball. For the price of this ball, I expected much much more, but since it is the only one of its size (1 1/4” shaft, 2” ball, and 1” rise) I guess I’m stuck. 594906

I have contacted brophy and the machine markings are because the ball is cut from one solid piece of steel.

Got this for flat towing my Jeep. I was unable to find a solid and economical 6" rise hitch so I got a 5" rise hitch and this 1" rise ball. Very nice combination! Just what the Dr. ordered. Thanks etrailer! 548914

Everything went great, products fit as they were designed to, excellent shipping and customer service was very helpful. I will definitely order in the future 545334

This trailer ball was supposed to be a Brophy brand made in USA, but there are no product markings on the ball other than the size (2”). Anyway the nut fits way looser than normal on the threads. Whoever machined it needs to improve their quality control. 526343

The only ball stamp you will typically see on the brophy balls is the size on the top of the ball. The ball is made in the USA and is cut from one piece of steel.

The hitch ball is great and exactly as described. The whole ordering and customer service process was excellent. Can't go wrong. Glad I found etrailer.com. 513039

Ball with rise, was required to level my trailer again due to tire change. Searched many sites only to fine what I needed at etrailer, my new go-to source. 445266

Great ball best one i ever had the quality and looks are great 352879

- CB28Z

2" trailer ball is of the correct type and size. However it would have been nice if the nut and split ring would have been plated like the ball. It would even look better on hitch mount. 315355

- CB28Z

Brophy makes great stuff and this hitch ball no exception. I needed a little extra lift to level my trailer and this worked great. I also love their zinc finish. Compared to chrome, it's every bit as durable against corrosion, if not more so, and not so flashy. You'll like it! 304346

Ask the Experts about this Brophy Trailer Hitch Ball

  • Hitch Ball Compatible With Alumistinger Ball Mount
    There is a hitch ball that is compatible with the Alumistinger Ball Mount with 8" Drop or 7" Rise # AM3509 but the Brophy 2" Hitch Ball # CB28Z is not because it has a 1-1/4" diameter shank, and the Alumistinger requires a hitch ball that has a 1" diameter shank. The hitch ball I recommend instead is the Curt # C40033; like the Brophy this is a 2" hitch ball with a 6,000 lb capacity and 1" rise.

  • What is the Rise of Brophy 2 Inch Hitch Ball
    We measured the Brophy 2" Hitch Ball # CB28Z and found that the rise was 1 inch. I have added a cutout of the video review we did of this hitch ball so you can see that measurement for yourself. I have also linked that video review for you to check out.

  • Size Wrench and Torque for Nut on Trailer Hitch Ball # CB28Z
    The nut on a hitch ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank takes a wrench with a 1-7/8 inch socket. You will need to torque all hitch balls with a 1-1/4 inch shank, like 2-51/6 inch hitch ball # CB28Z, down to 450 ft/lbs.

  • How to Get a 2015 Toyota Highlander to Sit Level While Towing
    Right off the bat it sounds like you will be needing a weight distribution system for your 2015 Toyota Highlander to ensure level towing. You can get a ball mount with a larger rise to level out the trailer, but that won't help level your Highlander. What a weight distribution (WD) system does is help to keep all of the weight of the trailer from forcing the rear end of your car down. This can be very dangerous because it can raise the front end of your vehicle, like you mentioned, which...

  • Longer Ball Mount and Rise Hitch Ball Solution for Needing 1-1/2 inch Drop
    The ball mount part # EA20 is 9-3/4 inches from pin hole to ball hole like you mentioned. We do have taller hitch balls like the part # C40033 which has an inch of rise built into the ball that would put you at 1 inch drop which is very close to the 1-1/2 inch drop that you need. It should be about perfect since the tongue weight of your trailer will most likely cause the suspension to sag slightly.

  • Available Hi-Rise 2-Inch Hitch Balls
    We have Brophy hitch ball # CB28Z which is a 2-inch ball with 1-inch of rise. This ball has a 1-1/4-inch diameter shank that is 2-1/2-inches long. We also have Curt 2-inch ball # C40034 which has a 1-inch diameter shank that is 2-1/8-inches long. This can be used with Reducer Bushing # F-2. If you cannot find a hitch ball that matches your requirements you might just change out your ball mount to one with 2-inches more rise or use an adjustable one.

  • Weight Distrobution System With Sway Control for a 2010 2WD Ram 1500 and 3500 lb 1 Axle Trailer
    For most weight distribution, I recommend going all out and just purchasing a full kit with the sway control and weight distribution all together. This saves time, money, and most importantly, frustration. You want to verify the tongue weight of your loaded trailer, which will include the weight of any cargo or gear added to the trailer, plus anything stored behind the REAR axle that you'll use during your trip. Think of this as the "Leaving today" weight. Because of the tongue weight...

  • Recommended Hitch Ball For Fastway e2 Weight Distribution
    In regards to the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA94-00-0600 the hitch ball is sold separately and a requires 1-1/4" diameter shank. I recommend the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # 19286. It features a built-in wrench flats ease installation. A chrome finish that resists corrosion and fine threads that provide a strong grip. Lock washer and nut included. The weight capacity is up to 12,000 lbs and has a limited lifetime warranty. If you needed a 2" Hitch Ball # CB28Z....
