Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - SC23-C Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy 2" hitch ball. The hitch ball's going to provide a connection point for your trailers coupler. The fine threads are going to provide a tight strong grip, this one's going to feature 14 threads per inch. It's made from a durable stainless steel construction that's corrosion resistant and rust proof. It has a polished finish to provide a sleek attractive look. It's also going to feature the wrench flats here on the side. That's going to allow you to use a wrench to hold the ball in place. It makes installation much easier.

It does come with the lock washer and the nut, so both of those are included. The ball diameter is 2". We're going to take a look at the shank dimensions real quick. Starting with the shank length. I'm just going to measure the threaded portion, that's going to be 2-1/8", overall length is about 2-1/2". The diameter is going to measure right at 1" in diameter. This has a weight capacity of 7,500lbs. When installing this you would place this through the ball hole on the underside, you'd place on the lock washer followed by the nut and then you'd need to get it torqued to the specifications listed by the manufacturer. That's going to do it for today's look at the Brophy 2" ball with a weight capacity of 7,500lbs..

Very nice SS version of a 2 inch ball. I really like the polished finish vs. some of the other matte SS finishes. It matches a polished aluminum ball mount nicely. This is one of the only 7,500 lb rated 2 inch ball/1 inch shaft balls I could find. The only knock is that it is made in China, not the U.S., but you can't always get what you want. Etrailer was prompt with shipping. Please note the overall shaft length is 2 1/2 inches, which provides ample length even for 1 inch thick mounts typically found on aluminum mounts. This fact was not clear from the description, although it was buried in the Q and A. I will follow up once I've had a chance to put the product in service, which will be shortly. 380337

Ask the Experts about this Brophy Trailer Hitch Ball

  • Troubleshooting a Hitch Ball that is not Securing When Lowering a Trailer Coupler
    There could be a couple reasons this could be happening. One being the hitch ball could be over-sized but I seem to think tightening the lock nut under the wedge will eliminate the need for you to manipulate your hitch ball into the secured position. To tighten the lock nut, make sure hitch ball is removed, and then push the wedge into the coupler and tighten the lock nut as needed. You may do this a few times until you get to your specifications. You could certainly get the hitch ball...

  • Correct Torque to Install Brophy 2-Inch Hitch Ball SC23-C on Alumistinger Ball Mount AM3505
    To install the Brophy 2-Inch Hitch Ball # SC23-C on Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3505 you will use a suitable torque wrench (one like # ALL944001) to apply 250-ft-lbs of torque on the nut. I confirmed this with my contact at Brophy Machine Works.

  • Does the Brophy Stainless Steel Hitch Ball SC23-C Come with Stainless Steel Nut and Washer
    I spoke with my contact over at Brophy about stainless steel hitch ball # SC23-C and found out that the included nut and washer are not stainless steel but do have a zinc plating. This is common for stainless steel balls. The hardware used to secure the ball isn't stainless.

  • Where is Brophy 2 Inch Stainless Steel Hitch Ball Made
    Brophy hitch ball # SC23-C is made overseas. For a stainless steel option that is made in the US you would have to go to an interchangeable set, # 903B. I have linked a video review of this set for you.

  • What Is Overall Shank Length Of Brophy 2-Inch Hitch Ball SC23-C
    I went to the warehouse and measured the Brophy 2-Inch Hitch Ball, part # SC23-C. The length of the shank from the underside of the platform that sits on the ball mount is 2-1/2 inches. The threaded portion of the shank measures 2-1/8 inch. I have attached a photo of the ball with th edimensions shown.

  • Size Wrench Used to Install Brophy Hitch Ball # SC23-C
    Brophy recommends using two large crescent wrenches to install the # SC23-C. Or at least one crescent wrench on top of the ball and a 1-7/8 inch wrench on the bottom.

  • Recommended Two Inch Hitch Ball To Use With Fastway Aluminum Ball Mount
    The ball mount you referenced, part # DTLBM8200, has a hitch ball shank hole that measures 1 inch diameter and the platform measures 1 inch thick. After doing more research I found that the shank on the # SC23-C hitch ball is actually 2-1/8 inches long. The shank is considered a medium length on this hitch ball. A medium shank is considered between 2 and 3 inches. When installing a hitch ball, after the nut and washer have been installed, there should be at least one thread showing below...

  • 2 Inch Stainless Steel Hitch Ball with 1-1/4 Inch Shank
    I do have options for you but we do not have exactly what you are looking for. The best option we have is the 2" Hitch Ball part # SC23-C which is made of stainless steel and has a 1" diameter shank. In order to then use this with a 1-1/4" diameter ball hole you would also need the Hitch Ball Bushing part # F-2. The Hitch Ball Bushing is zinc plated and unfortunately we don't have any that are stainless steel. We also have the Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball Cover part # 42250 as an alternative.

  • Is the Brophy 2 Inch Hitch Ball Made Entirely of Stainless Steel
    The 2" Hitch Ball part # SC23-C is constructed entirely of stainless steel and has a polished finished. It works with ball mounts that accept a 1" diameter shank and trailer couplers that accept a 2" diameter hitch ball. I have attached a review video of the above hitch ball for you as well.

The chrome ball # 63845 you currently have has a shank that measures 1 inch in diameter, a shank length of 2-1/8 inches, and a capacity of 7,500lbs. I recommend the stainless steel Brophy Hitch Ball # SC23-C to replace your chrome plated ball. This ball also has a 1 inch shank diameter, 2-1/8 inches long shank and a capacity of 7,500lbs., so they will swap out just...

  • Recommended 2 Inch Trailer Ball for Andersen Alumistinger Ball Mount
    The Curt 2 inch Trailer Ball, part # 40038 would be a good choice for you. The ball has a 1 inch diameter shank with a 12,000 lb capacity. It would work just fine with the Andersen Alumistinger Ball Mount you mentioned. Keep in mind that the towing capacity will be limited to the capacity of the lowest rated component, be it the ball, hitch, ball mount or the vehicle itself. The CR Brophy ball you mentioned would also work well, but it has a lower capacity at 7500 lbs.

  • Height of Brophy 2" Hitch Ball
    From the base to the top of the 2" Hitch Ball # SC23-C measures about 3-1/2", and the overall length of the hitch ball with the shank is about 6". I have attached a diagram and a review video for you to check out.

  • How to Determine Correct Trailer Hitch Ball Size Needed for Travel Trailer
    I can tell you how to determine which trailer hitch ball you need for your 2012 Sportsmen Classic Series M-19BH travel trailer, and it seems likely it is a 2" hitch ball, though there would be no way we could have this type of information available. To determine the correct hitch ball you need to know what size ball the trailer's coupler will accept so that's the first detail you will need to acquire. Like I mentioned, for a trailer this size it is likely a 2" ball but you will need...

  • Which Wiring Harness, Ball Mount, Hitch Ball and Lock Should be Used for Salt Water Towing
    For a 2010 Honda Pilot, you would use T-One Wiring harness, part # 118491. There is no cutting or splicing involved, it just connects to the factory tail light connectors. With exposure to salt-water, I would stick with aluminum or stainless steel for your other products as they will hold up the best. I assume you have a 2 inch hitch receiver, so I would use part # e98882. It is a stainless steel hitch lock with a limited lifetime warranty. The drawbar and ball you need will depend...

    Your 2007 Nissan Xterra is capable of using a weight distribution system.

Based on your vehicle's carrying capacity, the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control # EQ37060ET could be a great system for you. It has a tongue weight range of 200-600...

  • 2-Inch Ball Mount with 6-Inches of Drop for Towing Car Trailer
    Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-048-6 is intended for use along with a Roadmaster tow bar like their BlackHawk 2 # RM-422 but is not rated for trailer towing, as you noted. Instead you'll want to use a ball mount with the same 6-inches of drop, such as 8K-rated aluminum ball mount # EA60 from Brophy or Andersen's # AM3507. Be sure to use a hitch ball rated for the trailer's weight, such as 2-inch 7.5K ball # SC23-C. Please refer to the linked article and ball mount page.

    A ball with a medium shank, 2-1/8 inches or longer, will work fine with the Solid Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTBM4200. You will just need to make sure that there are at least 2 threads past the nut when it is properly tightened to the ball mount. Here are some of the balls we recommend: For a 1-7/8 inch diameter, # 63851 For a 2 inch diameter, # SC23-C For a 2-5/16 inch diameter, # 63853

  • Hitch & Ball Mount for 2002 Jeep Wrangler to Clear Spare Tire
    You can avoid clearance issues between your 2002 Jeep Wrangler's rear-mounted spare tire and your towing ball mount by using a ball mount long enough that will extend past the rear edge of the tire. The 2-inch hitch I suggest for your 2002 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is Curt # 13408. This is a no-drill bolt-on installation. When we installed a Class III hitch on your vehicle we found that the distance from the hitch pin hole to the rear of the spare tire was 6-1/4-inches. Once it is installed...

  • Stainless 2 inch Hitch Ball Recommendation for a Brophy Ball Mount EA40
    For a 2 inch diameter stainless steel hitch ball to use with the Ball Mount part # EA40 that you referenced the Brophy ball part # SC23-C would work great. This ball has 2-1/8 inch long shank that is 1 inch in diameter so it would fit the # EA40 well.

  • Compatibility of 2-Inch Hitch Ball SC23-C with Weigh Safe 2-5/16-Inch Hitch Ball Adapter WS07
    The Weigh Safe Replacement 2-5/16-Inch Hitch Ball Adapter # WS07 is specifically intended for use on their hitch ball # WSUN-1 but I did a test fit on the Brophy 2-Inch hitch ball # SC23-C and these items work together. This clamp-on adapter should not be left on the 2-inch ball unless the trailer coupler is connected over it. The adapter has a magnetic closure but this may not be secure enough to allow driving the vehicle without a trailer coupler to hold the adapter on the 2-inch ball.

For an anti rattle for it use the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches part # RM-061 this is my go to anti rattle because it is very effective at keeping things secure.
