Video Transcript for Brophy 2 Inch Hitch Ball Review

Now, to install your ball, what we're gonna do is remove the nut. You got a lock washer that comes with it. That's gonna go underneath. So we'll put that in position here. Depending on your ball mount, one thing to make sure you check is the diameter here is gonna match the one you have on your shank so the ball will fit in there. We have an inch diameter here on this, so it's gonna work just fine.

So we'll put a lock washer or not here on the bottom. Now I'm gonna do it hand tighten to get it started. And there's two different ways you can do this. Now, if you have a vice, you can put the ball on the vice you can see there's flat ends here on the side of the base of the ball. It'll grab onto there and then you can use a wrench or a socket like we have to tighten that down.

And if you don't have a vice, you can still use your hitch like I have it set up here. You can do it this way, or we recommend you can flip it to the side like this, and it's gonna be easier to hold the wrench on this side, or I'm sorry. Hold the wrench on this side and then put the socket on this side. Now, if you don't and have a torque wrench, we do sell those on our website. So I'd pick one of those up, it's gonna make this easier to tighten down the ball and I'm just gonna go like this and slowly start tightening it down.

And you wanna do this until it hits those torque settings and you'll find that in the instructions that come with your ball. So make sure you hit those. Once it's torqued down, there you flip around, pin it, and then hook up to your trailer. With the ball set up and ready to go, some things to look at with it would be look at what size the ball is, gonna be a two inch ball, also has a chrome finish on there to protect against rust and corrosion. So it's gonna hold up.

You can see we've hooked it up to a couple different trailers though, and it's scraped off just a little bit, but I think that's just gonna happen the more you use the chrome ball. Another thing keep in mind is the trailer weight rating. So you always wanna go with the lowest of those numbers. Now, what I mean by that is you look at my hitch and my hitch is 4,000 pounds. It's rated for that. And then the shank is gonna be ready for 6,000 pounds. And the ball is rated for 8,000 pounds. Now, what that means is we're gonna go with the 4,000 pound trailer rating that my hitch gives 'cause that's the lowest number. Now I did mention that it's a two inch ball. So make sure you go look at your trailer that you want to tow, look at the coupler and it says it right there on it somewhere, right now I can show you one. It says it right here on top. It tells you it's a two inch ball. If you happen to look at your coupler and see it says two and five sixteenths that's okay. We sell those size balls as well, so just look at our website and order the one that's right for your coupler. This is an example of an inch and seven eighths coupler right here. So if you have that size we also offer the ball that fits in there too. And when it's time to hook up your trailer you can just set it down on the ball or lower the jack so it sits in the place. The coupler will go over the ball like that. You should be able to throw the latch and that locks it in and see I can lift up, it's not popping back off and we'll go ahead and replace our pin and our latch. And once you've got everything else all hooked up you're ready to hit the road. Overall, you're gonna need a ball if you plan on towing something. So this is gonna be a good two inch ball, it installs really easily, much like all of them do but this is gonna work with that two inch coupler. So just make sure you get that size right before you order it. Well, I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out and I hope this helps..

Looks good but some how I got the idea that this was made in USA- paid twice as much to get USA made and is stamped made in China.

I am truly amazed by the customer service from Etrailer. I ordered a hitch, ball and hitch plug with standard shipping on Thurs around 11 am. Their pricing was lowest I found.

  • Sway Control Recommendation For A Toyota Tacoma Towing A Pop-Up Trailer
    The ball you're referencing on your trailer tongue is most likely the one that would come with a friction sway control bar like the Curt Friction Sway Control for Weight Distribution Systems # 17200. I'm assuming you most likely don't experience a lot of sag since you're towing a pop-up so a simply friction sway control bar would most likely be the solution you need without overdoing it. The # 17200 comes with the tab to weld onto your ball mount for the sway control to connect to but...

  • Recommended Ball Mount For Towing UHaul Trailer with 2010 Subaru Outback
    It sounds like the trailer you're towing from Uhaul has a coupler height of 18-1/2" to 18-3/4", which is likely what they're referring to when they're talking about optimal height. There are a lot of factors that affect the height of the hitch on your vehicle in relation to the ground but typically we've found that when the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76227 sits 15-16" from the top of the receiver to the ground. You'll want to measure once...

  • Determining Trailer Hitch Ball Mount Rise Needed for Trailer Compatibility
    The Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 8-3/4" Rise - 10" Drop - 8,000 lbs # AMSC10 you referenced measures the rise from the inside top of the receiver to the top of the hitch ball platform not the top of the hitch ball itself because the coupler fits over it. I've attached an article to assist. Use the article to help you with official measurements. Based on what you describe it sounds like you may need a 4 inch rise if I understand your measurements. I've linked the page to...

  • How Thich is the Ball Platform on the Curt C24WR?
    I spoke to a tech over at Curt and they confirmed the ball platform on their # C24WR is right at an inch thick. If you were looking for a ball to go with this, the Brophy # EH68C-C will be an 8,000 pound 2 inch ball option, and the Curt # C40007 will be a 10,000 pound 2 5/16 inch ball option.

  • Is There A 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Ball Made In the USA
    The 2" Hitch Ball part # EH68C-C is made overseas but we do have a made in the USA hitch ball option for you, the Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set part # 904B which gives you both 2" and 2-5/16" options. The majority of the trailer hitch balls are all made overseas. In regards to the Extra Long Ball Mount part # D-26, this does indeed have a reduced capacity due to the extended length but not by much. For reference, the Ball Mount part # C45310 is essentially a shorter version...

  • Does Hitch Ball Come Mounted to Brophy Ball Mount with 4 Drop or 3 Rise
    A hitch ball does not come mounted to the Brophy Ball Mount with 4" Drop or 3" Rise # EA40, and there is not a way to get that as an option. For the hitch balls that work with this mount, either the 2" Hitch Ball # EH68C-C or 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # SC30-C, you will need to torque them to 250 ft-lbs according to Brophy. If for some reason you are unable to get that installed yourself, a local installer should be able to tighten the hitch ball to the necessary ft-lbs. I have added a link...

  • Ball Mount For Curt Hitch on 2019 Honda Odyssey For 4x8 U-Haul Trailer
    We can definitely help you get exactly what you need to tow a 4 x 8 U-Haul trailer with your 2019 Honda Odyssey and the Curt Hitch # C64NR. According to U-Haul, their coupler height is 18 inches, and when we installed this Curt hitch on a 2019 Odyssey we found that the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver was 14-1/2 inches. So you'll need a ball mount with approximately 3-1/2 inches of rise, though you can go within an inch or so either way without any issue. There is an...

  • What Rooftop Tent Solution do You Recommend for My 2012 Honda Pilot?
    I have a tent solution for you. I researched all of our available roof racks for mounting on a bare-roof 2012 Honda Pilot, and unfortunately all of our available roof racks have very limited weight capacity due to the clip/clamp-on style. For a roof top tent, it is strongly recommended to either mount crossbars on flush or raised factory rails. This is because the weight capacity of these attachment styles are higher and can accommodate a safe amount of static weight capacity needed to...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Sway While Towing With A 2006 Toyota Camry
    Since you are towing with a Toyota Camry you won't be able to use a weight distribution hitch with sway control and will only be able to adjust the weight inside of the trailer to help prevent sway. I've attached some articles below to help with this, but to be honest you need a larger vehicle like an SUV or truck to properly tow your camper. That being said you can help mitigate some of the sway by using a friction sway control bar like the Curt Friction Sway Control # 17200 but I still...
