Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 19261 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 19261. This is the Tow Ready Hitch Ball with a 1-7/8" ball diameter. It's going to have a long shank. The gross towing weight on this ball is going to be 2,000 pounds. Again, the ball diameter is 1-7/8". The shank diameter, which is this portion here, is going to measure 1". That measurement is important to keep in mind when choosing a ball mount.

You want to make sure that the ball hole diameter on the mount matches the shank diameter of the hitch ball. If we take a measurement of the shank link, measuring from the bottom of the ball platform to the end of the threaded portion, that's going to give us a measurement of 3-3/16". Again, this is going to offer a capacity of 2,000 pounds. It's designed to fit draw bar thicknesses from 1" to 2" thick. It's going to feature the wrench flats here on the side. That's going to help you easily get everything tightened and torqued to specifications listed by the manufacturer.

When you get this hitch ball, you're going to get a nice instructional tag that's installed on the shank. You want to be sure to remove that. That's going to have instructions on it. It's also going to have the proper torque rating that you'll need. The hitch ball itself is made from a steel construction. It's going to feature a nice chrome plating, so it's designed to resist rust and corrosion.

You're also going to get the lock, washer, and the nut. Once you have this installed on your ball mount, you place the shank through the ball hole. Then under the platform of the ball mount is going to go the lock washer, followed by the nut. You can go and get everything hand tight. Then you'll need to get it torqued to specifications.

Again, that's going to be listed on that instructional tag that comes with the hitch ball. That's going to do it for our review of part number 19261. This is the Tow Ready Hitch Ball with a 1-7/8" ball diameter. .

Just what I needed. For some reason The '98 Rams have an extra thick tow deck on the bumper. I have a tow package under the bumper but it is too low for the watercraft trailer I want to pull. I searched everywhere and found etrailer and Amazon had a listing for an 1-7/8 ball with a one inch shank at three inches long. Thanks to DrawTite. Any way Amazon cost almost twice as much "bottom line total" as etrailer. Can't beat that. Of course what can you say about ball hitches...its new and shiney! It works!


I recently purchased a 2015 F150 with a factory bumper. It had never had a ball installed on it and I went and bought one locally. To my surprise, the shank on the ball was way too short to fit the bumper. It was only 2-1/8" long which just barely came to the bottom of the bumper. I checked and in my small town, there were no long shank hitch balls to be had. I went online and located and found what I needed. A chrome ball with a long shank. It arrived a few days later and now I can pull my trailer with my new truck. Thanks etrailer!


Extremely pleased with hitch
ball and shank I recently ordered from you folks. The 3 3/8” long shank fits perfectly on the rear bumper of my Toyota Tacoma which is 2” thick at hole. Will use it to when towing my log splitter. Thanks for a great product.


The price is good and the ball is of great quality!!! Highly recommended!!!


Excellent product, fast service and great price! Will order from here again.


This product is high quality, right down to the chrome finish.

See what our Experts say about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Ball

  • 1-7/8-Inch Hitch Balls to Fit Bumper on Ford F-150
    You'll want to check the specs on your F-150 rear bumper to confirm its towing and tongue weight capacities before choosing a hitch ball like # 19261. An OEM bumper could have different capacities than an aftermarket bumper, for example. You can also at the same time check the shank size for the hitch ball hole to confirm what diameter and length is needed. Ford or the aftermarket bumper manufacturer should be able to recommend an appropriate hitch ball, or at least give you the shank...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2 inch Hitch with 2-3/4 inches of Rise and 1-7/8 inch Ball
    For a ball mount designed to fit a 2 inch hitch that has a 2-3/4 inch rise the part # 2753 would be a great option. Then for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball we have the part # 19261 that would be a great option. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Does Going with a Longer Ball Mount Make Trailer Harder to Back Up
    Going with a longer ball mount for your situation would be a great solution. The only real downside is that you might be more likely to bang your shin against the ball mount since it will be sticking out further, but the increased length does not make for difficulty backing the trailer up or decreased backing up angle. If anything the added length will make backing up the trailer a bit easier as the trailer will be less quick to jackknife and the added length if anything would allow you...

  • Ball Mount for 2012 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited Towing Snowmobile Trailer
    Being within two inches of level, either over or under would be close enough. A ball mount like part # 2923 would be perfect. The ball mount uses a trailer ball with a 1 inch diameter shank like part # 19261 for a 1-7/8 inch ball, or # 63849 for a 2 inch ball.

  • Extended Ball Mount Measurements and Compatibilities for a 2012 Chrysler Town and Country
    You won't have any problems using the Super Extra Long Class III Ball Mount, # 80232, on your 2012 Chrysler Town and Country as long as you have a 2 inch receiver on your hitch. This ball mount has a 6000 lb gross trailer weight capacity and a 600 lb tongue weight capacity. Be sure you do not exceed the capacity of the lowest rated item while towing. You may also want a hitch ball, # 19247 or #19261. If you want to know the measurement for the extension, then you will want to start from...

  • How to Determine the Right Ball Size to Use to Tow a Boat Trailer
    The size ball you need will depend on what the trailer coupler requires. If you look at the top of the coupler it should say the size ball it requires. Also, you will need a ball with the correct diameter shank to fit the ball hole in the ball mount. You will need to measure the ball hole to determine the shank size needed. For example ball mount # 2753 requires a ball with a 1 inch diameter shank such as # 63845 for a 2 inch or # 19261 for a 2-5/16 inch. Once you have those 2 pieces...

  • Hitch Ball Recommendation for Curt D-4 Trailer Hitch Ball Mount
    You will need a ball that matches your trailer coupler. The required ball size should be stamped into the top of the coupler. For a 1-7/8 inch ball you will want hitch ball # 19261. For a 2 inch ball you will want # 63849. For a 2-5/16 inch ball you will want # C40007. I have included a FAQ article on choosing hitch balls for you to check out.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Honda Pilot that Needs 4-1/4 inches of Drop
    To tow your trailer level based on the dimensions you listed you are correct, you would want a ball mount that has 4-1/4 inches of drop. The closest drop we have would be 4 inches like the part # 2753. Since the rear suspension of your Honda Pilot will sag slightly with the tongue weight of your trailer this ball mount should be perfect. For a 2 inch ball you would want the # 63845 or for a 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19261.

  • Can Draw Tite Ball Mount 2753 be Used in Rise Position
    Yes, the Draw Tite Ball Mount part # 2753 can be used in the rise position to gain more height. In the rise position this ball mount will give you 2-3/4 inches of rise. For a 2 inch ball you would want the part # 63845 and for a 1-7/8 inch ball we have the # 19261. I also attached a help article on how to pick out the correct ball mount rise/drop.

  • Can 2 Inch OEM Hitch Receiver on 2016 Ford Escape Be Used With Weight Distribution
    You might be able to. Take a look at the rating sticker affixed to the hitch. It it lists two separate rating categories one with TW and GTW for towing and one with TW and GTW for weight distribution, then you can use a weight distribution hitch. If it only lists ratings for towing, then you cannot use weight distribution with that hitch. If the sticker on the hitch states you can indeed use weight distribution, the Reese # 66557 Steadi-Flex system you'd looked at would be perfect for...

  • Brophy Balll Mount # BM20 Recommendation for a 2005 Jeep Liberty
    As long as both your 2005 Jeep Liberty and your trailer hitch have towing capacities that are above 2,800 lbs you would have not a problem using Ball Mount 3/4 inch Rise or 2 inch Drop, part # BM20, on the hitch. You might also be interested in purchasing a Hitch Ball with 2 inch Diameter and Long Shank, part # 63849, as well as a Hitch Ball with 1-7/8 inch Diameter and Long Shank, part # 19261.

There are no additional floor mats included for the front. However if you want floor mats for the front I would recommend the Husky Liners Floor Mats # HL98261. This is floor liner kit that includes a floor mat for the front drivers side, front passengers side, and a single rear liner. Then if you...

  • Weight Capacity of Brophy Ball Mount # BM20
    I cannot explain the contradictory information you found on the online retailer's site as the Brophy Ball Mount # BM20 that you referenced does indeed have the 10,000 lbs GTW and up to 1,000 lbs TW capacities as shown on the etrailer product page. I verified these specs with Brophy and they are also available on their website if you wish. With this ball mount you can use a hitch ball with a 1-inch shank diameter, such as the 2-5/16-inch Diameter # 63847 or the 1-7/8-inch Diameter # 19261.

  • Ball Mount with 6 inch Drop and 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball
    For a 6 inch drop ball mount that would fit the 2 inch hitch of your 2019 Subaru Ascent we have the Draw Tite part # 40346 and then for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball you'd want the part # 19261 and you'd be set. The Curt ball mount does not have the smaller ball size available for it since the ball hole is larger.

    You would need a 10 inch rise ball mount with the Curt hitch part # 13591 to tow your trailer level. For that you would need the part # 80248. For a 2 inch ball you would need part # 63845 or for a 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19261.

    We have trailer hitches that are a confirmed fit for your 2001 Chrysler Town and Country. For towing the best option we have is the Draw Tite part # 75119 which is a confirmed fit and would work well with a small trailer. For trailer wiring the Tekonsha kit part # 118376 would work well too as it is a confirmed fit. For a ball mount the part # 2753 will fit the hitch and then for a 1-7/8 inch ball the part # 19261 is a fit too.

  • Longest Trailer Ball Mount Available
    The longest fixed ball mount we carry is the Hidden Hitch # 80232. It's 15-3/4 inches from the hitch pin hole to the ball hole. It provides 3/4 inches of rise or 2 inches of drop. For a hitch ball to fit the ball mount use # 19261 for a 1-7/8 inch, # 63845 for a 2 inch, or # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2004 Honda CR-V Towing Trailer with Coupler Height 18 inches
    Sounds like the rental company has given out the coupler height of their trailer when level. Since we know that when the Curt hitch part # 13535 is installed on a 2004 Honda CR-V that the hitch height is 15-1/4 inches that means you would need a rise of right at 2-3/4 inches to tow their trailer level. The part # 2753 has a rise of 2-3/4 inches so it would be perfect. For a 2 inch hitch ball you'd want # 63845, for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball # 19261.

  • Can Small Boat Trailer Be Towed By 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Using Bumper Mounted Trailer Ball
    That's a great question. Your Explorer Sport Trac is equipped with a towing bumper, with a 3500 lb capacity. If the rear bumper height is such that it's pretty close to the height of your trailer's coupler when it's jacked up and level, then by all means get you a trailer ball with the proper diameter shank to fit the hole in the bumper (likely 1 inch) and ball size (likely 1-7/8) and tow that boat and trailer. If the hole diameter is 1 inch, you can use # 19261 for a 1-7/8 inch ball or...

    When we installed the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76080 on a similar 2017 Buick Envision we found that from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver was 16-1/2". To determine which ball mount will have the correct rise or drop for your trailer, you will need to level your trailer and measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. If the trailer coupler is lower than 16-1/2" you will need a ball mount with a drop that matches the difference, and if the coupler is...

    I would suggest using an extra long ball mount, like part # 80232, over a hitch extender. This extra long ball mount has a higher towing capacity and gives you the length that you need without having to use multiple items. It measures 15-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball, it has a 3/4 inch rise or a 2 inch drop and it was designed to be used with 2 inch trailer hitches. If you would like a compatible hitch ball, you can use the 2 inch hitch...

The bolts would fasten to the weld nuts that are welded to the inside of the frame members. When you install the hitch, take some time to remove any dirt, grime and road boogers from the threads of the weld nuts. I'll link you to an install video.

    Yes, the Curt Class III trailer hitch # 13535 that fits your 2003 Honda CRV will require you to temporarily release the exhaust from its rubber hanger. This step is needed just to give you better access to the hitch installation points. The process is simple enough, requiring a spray lubricant as illustrated at the :30-second mark in the linked installation video. The only specialized hitch installation tool needed in addition to basic hand tools is a torque wrench. I have also linked...
