Video Transcript for Tow Ready 2 Inch Long Shank Hitch Ball Review

What's up everybody, Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the tow-ready hitch ball. So this one is going to be for your two-inch couplers. So just look on your coupler, make sure you have a two-inch before you grab this one. And it is going to have a max gross trailer weight of 7,500 pounds. The things you need to look at whenever you're pairing this up with a ball mount, you just want to make sure that we're not really limiting this.

So we want to kind of match it up to the corresponding capacity of our ball mount, just so it's a good system together, and it can handle everything you want to use it for. So with this, basically, all you need to look for as well with your ball mount. So we want to make sure this plate is not going to be any thicker than inch and no thinner than a half an inch. And the reason for that is the shank, AKA the threaded portion of our ball, is going to be about two and one-eighth inches long. It's going to have a diameter of an inch.

So another thing is the hole on our ball mount, we want to make sure that's an inch as well, just so it's a nice snug fit. And we have a nut on the bottom. It's going to be a one-inch nut, but the socket, you're going to want to grab a inch and a half socket to torque this down. And when it comes to ball mounts, with this one, we're going to want to torque it down to 250 foot pounds, which is a lot. So make sure you have a breaker bar or a torque wrench, whatever, just to make sure that you torque it down properly, just so this thing doesn't come undone whenever you're going down the road.

When it comes to trailer hitch balls, it's just kind of comes down to what size you need, what capacity you need. And when it comes to the finish, it doesn't matter what finish it has unless it's aluminum, it's gonna rust away. So don't expect to grab this ball and not have it rust away every time. There's just so much going on and so much metal on metal contact that it will rust away and that's with any other ball mount. It's still gonna work, but it's not going to look as pretty as it does now.

So if you really wanted to upgrade and prevent that from happening, you can go ahead and grab a aluminum ball. We do have some here, and you can pair that up with an aluminum ball mount, just so nothing's going to rust away. But when anything is made of steel, doesn't matter what kind of coating it is. It will eventually rust away after a year or so of use. When it comes to the trailer hitch balls, really all you need to make sure of is that it's the right size for your trailer. Make sure that it has a big enough rating for the trailers that you plan on hauling. And then we do want to make sure we pair it up with the right ball mount. We have a lot of options, so it shouldn't be that difficult for you guys to find the right setup for you. But this one it's basically kind of covers all those areas. I mean, I don't really haul massive trailers, but with this, it's really perfect for the middle of the road guys, you know, it'll take care for your smaller trailers, but also your bigger trailers. So as long as you take all this information from this video, I really do think this is going to cover a lot of those bases for you guys. And it's going to be a great option for you as well. And that's basically it for our look at the tow-ready hitch ball..

Durable, Tow Ready chrome ball has a 1" diameter x 2-1/8" long shank with wrench flats. It's chrome finish provides strength and corrosion-resistance.


I just added a set off trick-steps to my boat trailer,and with the extension on the trailer hook-up, this made a world of difference,and a safer hook-up,and less chance of damage to you vehicle.

It worked out perfect with the extended hitch.
William - 06/05/2022


we purchased the 2"Hitch Ball-1" Diameter x 2-1/18" Long Shank Chrome-7,500 lbs. a year ago. The purchase was easy. The ball was the perfect fit. It was just right for our 1975 Shasta Trailer. Great service! Thanks for your assistance in buying this product!


Great quality at a low price and super fast shipping!

It has been a year and this hitch ball still looks like new. High quality for the price!
Bob B - 11/25/2022


was easy to install the 2 ball and nut after installing the tow hitch. etrailer makes everything so easy. will order from them again.

It has been over a year and it is still working great. Have had no problems. Would buy from this company again. Excellent product.
Paula - 10/30/2014


Great products and service. I was able to order everything I needed to add a tow hitch and ball to my 2006 Jeep liberty. Very fast shipping. They even called me to verify orders and availability. Clear and easy to follow installation instructions. I hauled an U-Haul trailer from Texas to Ohio without any issues. Even bought a trailer and use it frequently for hardware stoe runs.


No complaints here definitely feels solid doesn't feel cheap at all have good weight to it and easy to install


first time I have ever ordered from etrailers,,,,,FANTASTIC SERVICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FAST FAST SHIPPING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to me 5+ stars all the way around,,, if I ever need anything again and etrailers has it I will order again,,,, could not ask for better,,, I don't get excited about to many companies but etrailers is top notch


I have worked in Ecommerce my entire career - your product is a bit technical form a vehicle application standpoint. Dont ever understaff your customer support - that is the only way I converted in to confirm what would suite my needs


The quality of this product is fantastic and it assembled with no problems and makes my rv / toad I pull a perfect match. I will continue to do business with ( much more in the future. The following photos are of my 1988 Fleetwood Jamboree and my baby (rare 1982 Toyota Corolla Station Wagon) all connected up and the 9" drop towing bar makes my Toyota towing very easy and safe at a level condition with my RV. Also look at the new LED lights installed to dress up my older RV, also purchased from I am a happy camper and highly recommend purchasing from them.


Fit and works well. The flat edge at the base of the ball facilitates installation and removal.


sway bar now works great!


great hitch & easy to install ... would definitely recommend


Thank you for such prompt service. I put this on my Polaris 570 mid size Ranger. The problem was a normal hitch was under the bed and a 2 inch rise was a bit too low for a level trailer. This fixed the problem moving the ball out further and higher. Much easier to hook up. I would recommend your company to others.


Love the hitch, ball mount, ball and wiring harness. All were a breeze to install.


Many thanks ! Outstanding customer support !


Exactly what I needed, could not source items local. Fast shipping. Would not hesitate to buy again from e trailer


I needed to maintain weight load of hitch, ball mount, and ball. 7,500/750. Perfect


It’s a ball hitch. Works great.


A quality product matching specifications and online pictures.
It came quickly in just a couple of days.


All as described and fast shipping. The how to videos were helpful.


Came in a timely manner and exactly what I ordered.


Thanks for the great customer service Friendly and answered questions. It it just what I needed, again thanks.


Excellent, thanks


Perfect fit for my 2021 Honda Passport. Everything shipped together and was well packaged. Easy to install with help from the video provided.


installing parts together very easy.

  • Adjusting Weight Distribution System to Apply More Weight to Front Axle of Tow Vehicle
    Assuming that the weight of your trailer is within the capacity your weight distribution system, you would need to adjust the system so that more force is applied to your spring bars. Try tilting the angle of your weight distribution head back further toward the trailer. This will apply more leverage to the spring bars, and should apply more weight to the front axle of your tow vehicle. I would recommend consulting the instructions that came with your system, and reviewing the set-up instructions....

  • How To Determine What Size Ball I Need For A Trailer Coupler That Does Not Have Size Listed
    I looked up the Shelby 5133 coupler and it said it uses a 2 inch hitch ball. You also need to get the right ball shank diameter and ball shank length. The ball mount determines the diameter and length. If you measure the hole size diameter in your ball mount, that gives you the ball shank diameter, there is a 3/4 inch, 1 inch and 1-1/4 inches diameter available. You need to measure the thickness of the ball mount to determine the ball shank length. Short length is less than 2 inches....

  • How to Determine the Correct Trailer Hitch Ball to Use to Tow a Trailer
    The most common ball size is probably a 2 inch. But the 3 most common sizes are 1-7/8, 2, and 2-5/16 inch. But there is more to it than that because ball mounts require balls that have a specific diameter shank, the threaded part. To determine the ball size you will need just look at the trailers coupler, once you find one. It will say the size ball you need. Some couplers can fit on all 3 sizes. To determine the shank diameter you would need to measure the ball hole opening on the ball...

  • Does a Trailer have to be towed Level or Can it be Off Up or Down
    If the trailer is less than 1 inch off of being perfectly level either up or down then it will be perfectly fine. Having it slightly higher would be better because presumably the tongue weight of the trailer will pull it down a little. You could also look into different ball mounts with different rise or drop specs. I have included a link to our ball mount main page for you. Tongue weight on a trailer is usually 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. But it can be less on a boat...

  • Should Hitch Ball Angle Be Adjusted Up and Down or Angled to the Rear Using Weight Distribution
    The hitch ball angle adjustment on weight distribution systems is designed to provide more or less distribution of the tongue weight on your trailer hitch to the trailer and vehicle axles. If you adjust the ball angle farther away from the towing vehicle, you will angle the weight distribution spring bars down toward the ground and that will distribute more weight. Angling the ball forward towards the towing vehicle puts less angle on the spring bars and therefore less weight is distributed. We...

  • Recommended Tightening Torque for Hitch Mounting Bolts
    The Tow Ready 2 Inch Hitch Ball, part # 63845, you have referenced needs to be torqued to 250 foot pounds. It is recommended to frequently check that the ball is tightened to these specifications. If you are meaning the mounting bolts that are used to attach a hitch to a vehicle, it would depend on the hitch part number and the year make and model of vehicle the hitch is going on. If you can give me that information I can help you determine the torque specifications for your specific application. I...

  • Hitch Ball for the Bumper on a 1999 Ford F-150 XL Sport 4x4
    The most common shank length for a 1 inch diameter ball hole, which is likely what is on the bumper for your 1999 Ford F-150, is 2-1/8 inches. But if you wanted to be safe you could go with a longer one. A shank length of 2-1/8 or 2-1/4 though should be just what you need. I have included a link to the hitch ball main page to the right so you can view the different balls we carry.

  • Determining Correct Hitch Ball Size for 2013 Coachmen Clipper Camper
    Based on the 3,518 pound GVWR I found for your 2013 Coachmen Clipper, the coupler is likely compatible with a 2 inch hitch ball like the Tow Ready # 63845. This 2 inch diameter ball features a 1 inch diameter shank. With that being said, I highly recommend trying to confirm the ball size from the seller, as it is possible that it couples to a different size. The type of ball it is compatible with should be stamped somewhere on the trailer itself, typically right on the coupler, or possibly...

  • How to Choose the Correct Replacement Hitch Ball
    In order to choose the correct replacement hitch ball you would need to measure the diameter of the shank, length of the shank, and diameter of the ball. The diameter of the ball should be stamped into the head but the other two will more than likely need to be physically measured. For example, the part # 63845 has a 2-1/8" long x 1" diameter shank with a 2" ball. Once you find out the above info you can then use our selection which I have attached for you to find the correct one for...

  • Which Ball and Ball Mount for 2004 GMC 2500 HD and a 7,000 Pound Boat and Trailer
    The ball mount will be determined by some measurements you will need to take. I will add a link to a page showing how to calculate the rise or drop necessary for your set up. You want the trailer to be level with the vehicle when towing. Make sure you take the hitch height and trailer coupler height measurements on a level surface. Once you know the drop or rise, select a ball mount with at least a 7,000 pound rating. It will probably use a 1-1/4 inch shank diameter ball, which is heavy...

  • Determining What Size Hitch Ball 1977 Starcraft Galaxy 6 Pop Up Camper Uses
    Most pop up campers accept a 2 inch hitch ball like the Tow Ready # 63845 but unfortunately there's not a way for me to verify if this is the right size for your 1977 Starcraft Galaxy 6 as trailer manufacturer's don't do the best job of making information like this available, especially on older models like this. Your best bet is to look at the coupler itself on the camper to see if there is any information stamped to the steel, either around the outside or underneath, that indicates...

  • Does A Weight Distribution System Need To Be Readjusted If I Lift My Truck
    It sounds like you are asking if your weight distribution system needs to be readjusted if the vehicle has been lifted/leveled since it was setup and if so then yes, you will need to change the hitch head height adjustment on the weight distribution shank and the angle of the heard or the tension on the spring bars. Since the rear of the truck has been lifted/leveled you may need a longer shank as well in order to level the hitch ball to the trailer (before coupled) so in that case you...

  • Trailer Coupler Latch is Very Difficult to Operate
    There are a few things that could be causing the issue you're experiencing. Let's start with the obvious-be sure you're using the correct trailer ball for the coupler. The coupler will have the necessary ball size stamped into it. It may sound blatantly obvious, but hey, it happens. Secondly, the nut on the underside of the latch can be used to adjust the tension of the latch to a degree. The latch/jaw mechanism of the coupler could be worn or damaged. We offer a few latch repair kits,...

  • How To Keep Hitch Ball From Spinning When Torqueing Nut
    Depending on which hitch ball you have it may have wrench flats on it like the 2" Hitch Ball - 1" Diameter x 2-1/8" Long Shank - Chrome - 7,500 lbs # 63845. If your hitch ball does have the wrench flats on the base of the ball you will need to use a large open end wrench to hold the hitch ball while torqueing the nut to the manufacturers specifications. When doing this it is easiest to install the ball mount side ways in the trailer hitch receiver since torqueing the nut when it is vertical...

  • Threads Per Inch for Hitch Balls that Fit Ball Mount with 1 inch Diameter Hole for Ball
    For the 1 inch diameter shank hitch balls the fine thread shanks have 14 threads per inch and the coarse thread shanks have 8 threads per inch. To get 12 threads per inch would require you to go with a 1-1/2 inch diameter hitch ball. But if you have a ball mount that has a 1 inch diameter shank it's best to just go with the correct size ball like with the # 63845. This is a 2 inch ball like you are wanting as well.

  • Does 2-1/2 Inch Rake on Rear Suspension of Ford F-150 Affect Weight Distribution Set Up Procedure
    When setting up the system for the first time, it's the front wheel well height that you'll be concerned with, so the rear rake doesn't really make much difference. What you're looking for is the trailer tongue weight to have the smallest increase on the front wheel well height to the ground as possible. If the rear end squat from the weight distribution system causes the front suspension of the vehicle to unload or rise, you'll have all kinds of issues like incorrectly aimed headlights,...

  • Picking Out Hitch Ball for Snow Bear Utility Trailer
    Most likely a 1-7/8 inch or 2 inch hitch ball would be needed for your 5 by 8 foot Snowbear utility trailer. I attached a page that has all of the hitch balls we have. You'll want to look on top of coupler of your trailer and you'll see the ball size it needs and then check out the link I attached where you'll be able to pick the size ball needed. Also you'll want to make sure you get the correct diameter shank as well for fitting your ball mount.

  • Should a Hitch Ball Be Replaced if it Was Overtightened When Installed?
    I recommend replacing the 2" Hitch Ball # 63845 if it was over torqued. By overtightening the ball you may have added microscopic cracks inside the steel that will lead to a failure in the future.

    All of the 2" hitch balls with a 1" diameter shank that we carry are fine threaded so 14 threads per inch. A ball like the # 63845 comes with a lock washer and nut to attach it to a ball mount. Unless you need to thread it into something specific the thread count won't be an issue.
