Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 63853 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number 63853. This is the tow-ready hitch ball with the two and five sixteenth inch diameter. This is the packaging that it's going to come in so this is how it's going to come to you. Here on the back of the package, it's going to have all the information you need when installing. It's going to have step by step installation instructions and it's also going to list the torque ratings on the back of this packaging so you want to make sure not to discard this right away. We'll go ahead and take this out of the packaging. That way we can go over a few measurements.

Now again, this is going to offer a two and five sixteenth inch ball diameter. When it comes to the diameter of the shank of the ball mount - which is this portion right here - that's going to give us a shank diameter of right at one inch. Now keep in mind that the mounting hole in the ball mount must not exceed the shank diameter by more than one sixteenth of an inch. The shank length, measuring from the bottom of the ball platform to the end of the threaded portion, is going to give us a measurement of two and one eighth of an inch. This hitch ball is designed for drawbar thicknesses from three eighths of an inch to three quarters of an inch. It's going to offer a capacity of six thousand pounds.

It's made from a stainless steel construction so it's going to last a really long time and it's going to resist rust and corrosion. Here on the sides of the actual hitch ball - this portion right here, these are going to be your wrench flats. It's going to make it easier for installation. You can get a wrench around there very easily and also achieve the proper torque rating as listed by the manufacturer. Really simple installation and operation. All you have to do is place this through the hole on your ball mount.

You're going to get the lock washer that's included as well as the nut. So you'll put those pieces on, tighten it down and then you'll need to get the torque to the specifications listed by the manufacturer, which again, can be found on the backside of this packaging. Once you have that fully assembled and installed onto your ball mount, you can hook up your trailer to the hitch ball. Again, it's going to offer a diameter of two and five sixteenths of an inch. That's going to do it for our review for number 63853. This is the tow-ready hitch ball with the two and five sixteenth inch diameter.

Finally, no more rusty pant legs after I accidentally bump into the hitch ball! Definitely worth the extra $$ for a stainless version.

Ordering this product was easy and described perfectly. As of yet, I have not installed the ball. I must find the proper torque for use. I do find your product smooth and well made. I am sure I will have no problem with the ball.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


This size is European and NONE of the US use it. I bought a specialized trailer that was manufactured in S,Africa. I did not know this at purchase time, No problem I thought, WE have the internet. Good thing, checked etrailer and was not surprised (only grateful) that there is a professional Part supplier in the industry. BTW, I am a high end auto repair shop owner, This was not the first time is why I was not surprised, about 2 years ago I had a Range Rover owner that needed a European to US wiring adapter for his new trailer, I punched up ET and there it was. Nuff said.

A++ product at great price and fast shipping, it's a one stop shop all you need in one box and with the video makes it easy to install on my 2015 nissan altima with the bolts thru the trunk and didn't even to remove the mufflers by sliding the hitch in one side and pushing up the other end while pulling the one muffler to one side I was able to install quicker and the plug and play wires makes it easy than trying to decode wires. Thank-you.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


I have a golf-cart that works like a lawn tractor with a trailer hitch that I use to pull trailers and other utilities. I recently lost the trailer hitch and could not use the golf cart anymore. I knew I had to replace it and had purchased items from etrailer before. After I waded through the ton of products they offer, I found my replacements. I just received them today and put them together. I was impressed with the solid construction. My prior hitch was a square tube, this one is one solid piece. I had messed up on my original order and ordered hitch and ball that did not match. The etrailer staff caught my error and instead of just placing the order they contacted me with my error. I did research and found a ball that was compatible. etrailer staff modified my order and shipped a solution that worked for my situation. You CANNOT GO WRONG dealing with personnel like this. THANK YOU EVERYONE AT etrailer!!!!!!

  • Is the Finish on the Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball # 63853 Shiny or Dull
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball, # 63853, to check the finish on it. It is a polished stainless steel so it is shiny. I have added a picture I took of the ball so you can see. It is shiny enough to where if you look closely, you can see the reflection of the camera.

    First thing you will need to do is determine how much rise/drop you would need from a ball mount to tow your trailer level.

Once you figure out what you would need I attached a page that has all of the aluminum ball mounts we carry.

  • Using a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Adapter Reduces Tongue Weight Capacity on a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
    The use of any adapter or extension will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer by 50 percent. In this situation, you have to go with the lowest capacity, in this case it is the trailer hitch with the reduced tongue weight. Even if the adapter is rated for 6,000 pounds, you will only be able to tow as much as your hitch and vehicle will allow. To overcome this problem, I recommend installing a larger capacity hitch like the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75132....

The hitch will not fit with the 19 inch spare. The hitch was designed with the smaller spare tire in mind.

I have included a link to the instructions below. Hitches do not come with a ball mount. So you might also be interested in Ball Mount # 2923, and a ball.

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Be Detected by the Back Up Sensors on a 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid
    The available hitches for your 2009 Ford Escape will all extend a little beyond the bumper, but not by much; only about 1 inch. What you can do to test the sensors ahead of time is to place something that extends about 1 inch from the bumper where the hitch would be. If the sensors pick it up, then there is a possibility they will sense the hitch. I would think it is unlikely since the distance is only 1 inch and a steep angle up to the sensors. Even if the hitch did trip the sensors...

  • Trailer Hitch, Ball Mount, Hitch Ball, and Wiring Recommendations for a 2010 Subaru Forester
    We gauge difficulty of installing a trailer hitch by how long it takes (on average for the every day do-it-yourselfer) to perform the installation. We rate each of the 2 inch hitches for the 2010 Subaru Forester a 4 out of 10, meaning it will take about 40 minutes. All of the 2 inch hitches will require temporary lowering of the exhaust and the widening of a few holes on the frame using a drill (no new holes need to be drilled) to install the hitch.
