The convert-a-ball basically works well as I have equipment with both 1 7/8 and 2" receivers. I had a problem with my 2" ball in that the pin retainer inside the ball broke jamming the pin. I was able to drive the pin out and removed the broken clip wire. It is still usable although there is no retainer clip and I have to be careful not to lose the pin. This is probably an unusual event and I still recommend the convert-a-ball.

great service and fast delivery the convert a ball makes it easy when changing from one trailer to anther that’s calls for different size trailer hitches

I have had one of these hitches for a few years and can't say enough about how great they are. So easy to convert from 1 7/8 to 2" without tools. I have had so many people ask me where I got it and I didn't know because I had it given to me. Now I can tell them it came from etrailer.com.

I love Convert-A-Ball hitch balls. I have 6 vehicles and as many ball mounts depending on the vehicle/trailer combination. The ball mounts each have a stem and I can swap from 1-7/8" ball to 2" to 2-5/16" without tools! Makes life on the farm just a little bit easier.


Comments
As long as the balls are stored in a dry place and the o-rings on the pins stay lubricated with grease or Vaseline, they work perfectly!

I ordered the Convert-A-Ball Interchangeabe Ball Set, after looking at other Mfgs. this set will allow me to use both the 1-7/8 and 2" hitches, which is most common, and I do own both size trailers. I like the nickel plating and the intergrate pin . I have had the Mfg. with the screw type top of ball, that became rusty and the spring and ball bearing fell out, safety wasn't good. The order came within a week and was in great condition. I will order again from etrailer again without a doubt. tks Dave

Trailer ball is of excellent quality. I am curious to see how well the sliding pin holds up to the salty road conditions we have here in Michigan. The pictured ball does show a safety cotter pin but it was not included

I have had one of these types of receiver balls on my 98 S-10 for years and it never failed me ! My friends had those other types with the spring-loaded pin and the "zig-zag" channel and they always jammed up and mine NEVER did ! When I sold the truck I let the unit go with it ( I forgot to take it off), so when I bought another truck a few months later I got one of these again for my bumper. It is a no brainer.....

The convert-a-ball, along with the additional post, will now allow me to use either trailer with either vehicle. Balls switch out quick and easily. Well made product, no more having to constantly switch out balls.

Works great. I am very pleased. Delivery time was astounding. Arrived the next day. Love the cushioned ball mount - the 12 inch drop was perfect for my GMC Yukon where the receiver comes out of the bumper.

Worked well, but nickel finish is insufficient for Wisconsin winters. I would buy stainless steel if I had a second chance.

The order came within the wk I order it. This is the 2nd set that I have purchased, this set is for my son, as he just got a new truck and needed a hitch ball set that had both a 1 7/8" and a 2" ball. I purchased a Convert-A-Ball set like this one over a year ago and have not had a problem at all, and the convenience of changing ball sizes, and the safety that you have that the ball is held tight in the hitch, can not be matched. What a great product!

by:

Very nice product with snug fitting. Entire product has nickel finish except the nut?? Also, product has been revised as there is no cotter pin below the nut to act as an additional retainer.



- 901b

This is my second purchase of a Convert-A-Ball set and I'm loving them so far. A lot easier and quicker than changing ball mounts and a lot cleaner looking than those 2 or 3-way ball mounts.

Ask the Experts about this Convert-A-Ball Trailer Hitch Ball

  • Is Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set Secure Enough to Leave on a Ball Mount and Not Lose Ball
    With the ball # 901B torqued to the ball mount and one of the balls in place it will not go anywhere. You can leave it on the ball mount without worrying about losing the ball portion. Take a look at the video I have linked to see how it works.
    view full answer...
  • Orientation of the Pin on the Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set 901B
    The torque figure is 180 ft lbs. Sorry for the confusion there. As far as the pin orientation. Convert a ball tested that and determined that having it perpendicular was better. Having it that direction prevents the pin from getting damaged from front to back movement. Having it that way prevents the ball from not being able to change sizes when needed.

  • Recommended 2 Inch Hitch Ball With 1 Inch Diameter Shank and has a Shank Length of 2-1/2 Inches

To protect your ball shank when it's not in use I recommend the Convert-a-Ball cover # 005B. If you don't mind a longer shank, 3 inches, the Curt # C40020 would also work.

  • Does Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2020 Tesla Model X Have Restriction on Rise or Drop
    There is not a restriction associated with a ball mount's rise or drop for the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76143 that fits your 2020 Tesla Model X. For a ball mount the one with the most rise we offer is the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 10-3/4" Rise, 12" Drop # AMSC12. For 1-7/8" or 2" hitch balls with this mount you'll need the Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set # 901b; for a 2-5/16" hitch ball you'll need part # C40007. And for a hitch lock to secure the...

  • Needing High Capacity Ball Mount With 1 Inch Rise
    For a ball mount with a rise with a rating that meets or exceeds that of the Draw-Tite Class V # 41948 hitch, I'd recommend the # BWBMHD30210 from B&W. Unfortunately, none of the interchangeable ball sets we offer would be compatible with a high capacity ball mount like what you're looking for. I'd go with the # BWBMHD30210 with a # BWHB94050 trailer ball for your heavy duty needs, which would be good up to 16K and a lower rated ball mount like # 2923 and a ball set like # 901b.

The Tow Ready 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball, part # 19260, would be a great fit for your application, as it features a 1 inch diameter shank that should be compatible with your ball mount.

    A 1-7/8 inch ball is usually found on very small trailers.

The coupler should have the ball requirement stamped into the top of it.
