Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 19256 Review

Today we're going to review part number 19256. This is the Tow Ready 1 5/8" diameter chrome hitch ball with the short shank and a 2000 eight capacity. This trailer hitch ball has a nice chrome plating to help corrosion resistance. The pad of it is a w 7/8" diameter head and if you notice on the very top it is labeled 1 7/8ths and it also shows the weight capacity which is 2000 pounds. Does come with the wrench flats you can see which are the flat spots right here which allows you to put a wrench on it so when you go to torque this down to your ball mount it will hold your ball into place. It does include the nut and the lock washer.

Just to give you a few dimensions on this, the shank length is going to be right at 1 9/16th, the shank diameter is going to be right at 3/4" and it is designed to fit on a ball mount thickness of 3/8" to 5/8". That should do it for the review of part number 19256, the Tow Ready 1 7/8" diameter chrome hitch ball with the short shank and a 2000 pound weight capacity. .

Trailer Hitch was exactly the model needed for our Honda SRV AWD. Installation was quite routine, the only hitch, oops, wrong word, problem, was separating the mufflers from the rubber mounts. There must be a Honda tool to do that. Once that was done, the rest was easy!! We will use the hitch to tow our small trailer with our boat tender. 790268

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Ball

  • Torque Specs for 1-7/8-Inch Hitch Balls with 3/4-Inch and 1-Inch Shanks
    The correct torque value for the nut on a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball depends on the diameter of the shank. Draw-Tite, who makes # 19256 and # 19260 lists the following torque specs: "During hitch ball installation, torque all 3/4" shank diameter balls to 160 ft. lbs, 1" shank diameter balls to 250 ft. lbs., and 1-1/4" shank diameter balls to 450 ft. lbs."

  • How to Determine if Unmarked Trailer Coupler is for 2 inch or 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball
    If you have access to a 2 inch ball you should try fitting that into the coupler and see if it will latch on to it. That will be the best indicator. Based on what you said though it sounds like you have a 1-7/8 inch ball coupler as it fits into the coupler and only has a little bit of play.

  • Is There Difference Between 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch Ball
    The two sizes you mentioned are different balls. The larger size typically has higher capacities and fits couplers that are designed for it's size. The 2 inch size is typically seen in lighter duty applications. You have to match the correct size hitch ball with what the coupler is designed to fit. I attached a link to a page that has all of the hitch balls we carry as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Towing Small Trailer with 2017 Kia Forte
    A small trailer to move your scooter with your 2017 Kia Forte is the best option. A 700 lb trailer is well below the capacities of the Draw Tite hitch part # 24903 that fits your vehicle. You'll also need a ball mount part # 3594 and a hitch ball # 19256. For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # 118594.

  • How Tight Should Trailer Coupler Be on Hitch Ball
    A little bit of play is acceptable, the coupler should be tight enough that the coupler won't come off the ball, but not so tight you can't close the latch. I typically tighten the coupler up until I feel a slight resistance when closing the coupler latch, then I'll back it off slightly from there. Reese sells a white lithium grease that's conveniently packaged for use on hitch balls, part # 58117.

  • Availability of 1-7/8 Inch Trailer Ball w/ 1 Inch Diameter Shank
    The shank diameter of the trailer ball needs to match the hole diameter of your ball mount, which can be accomplished a few different ways. You could use a ball with a 3/4 inch shank like # 19256 as long as you used a reducer bushing like part # C21100. Another option would be to use a 1-7/8 inch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank like part # 19260. What might be the best option would be to use an interchangeable ball system like the Convert-A-Ball # 903B. This system includes a 1 inch...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2009 Honda Fit

I have included a link to an FAQ article on the hitch classes for you. A Class I hitches will still allow you to attach 2-bike bike racks and do some light towing.

  • Correct Hitch Ball for Class II Hitch on 2007 Subaru Forester
    You will need a trailer ball (the size of the ball will depend on the coupler size of the trailer you are wanting to tow) with a shank diameter of 3/4 inch. For the ballmount that comes with your hitch, I would recommend the either the 1-7/8 Inch Trailer Hitch Ball part # 19256 or for a 2 inch ball, part # 19258.

    Your owners manual is giving you two capacities with differences depending on how the truck is equipped. Your safest option would be to check with a Ram dealer to see what they recommend. Or you can use the GCWR in the door jamb. It's not always evident what a truck's max capacity is, even by reading the owner's manual, but if you look at the ratings sticker on the driver's side door jamb, you can get an accurate statement of the truck's towing abilities. On the sticker, look for the...

  • How to Pick Out Ball Mount for Truck Towing Small Trailer
    I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will first measure the height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch while on level ground. Next, you will measure the coupler height from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when the trailer is on level ground. Next, you will need to compute the difference. If the hitch height...

  • Can a Class II Ball be Used in a Class I Ball Mount
    Yes, if a ball is labeled as a Class II it can still fit a Class I ball mount. All that matters is that the shank on the ball is the right size for the ball mount's mounting hole. Ball # 19256 for example has a 3/4 inch diameter shank so it fits any ball mount with a 3/4 inch ball hole which is many Class I and II ball mounts. Please note that no matter what you always go by the lowest rated component in the system. So if the ball mount is rated for 2,000 pounds, the hitch for 3,000...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2019 Volkswagen Jetta
    There are a couple of trailer hitches that are a fit for your 2019 VW Jetta, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11540 and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24978. Both are Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitches, but between the two I strongly recommend going with the Draw-Tite hitch. The reason for that is the Draw-Tite has a concealed crosstube, which is not only aesthetically superior because you can't see the hitch tube, but it also means you have better ground clearance, to avoid any issues...

    According to the owner's manual for your 2014 Ford Fiesta Hatchback, this vehicle is not approved for trailer towing. That said, there are others who tow with this vehicle and I can understand you needing to get you belongings from New York to Florida so I think you will be okay if you just use your best discretion. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24961 which is a custom fit, no drill option and for a trailer wiring harness, I...

I also like the kit because the converter box in the kit has a reputation for being very reliable and has a higher amperage rating than similar wiring kits.The wiring kit installs behind the trim panels in the rear hatch on each side, where you can mount the converter...

    The end of the receiver on Draw-Tite # 36644 is about even with the back of your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, as you can see in the accompanying photo. So without having to worry about any clearance issue and Draw-Tite drawbars # 3592 and # 3593 are the same in every way except for length, the truth is neither of them are "better" and you will be fine with either option. Both drawbars come with a pin and clip, so the only other thing you'd need is a hitch ball, # 19256 for a 1-7/8" ball or #...

You did refer to this as a tow hitch so if you planned on using this trailer hitch for towing you also need some wiring and a ball mount kit.

There is enough space in the stock set up to allow for the hitch to fit without compromising the fit of the fascia relative to the other panels. If you tow the recommended ball mount is # 3593 and you can use 1-7/8 inch ball # 19256 or 2 inch ball # 19258.
