Video Transcript for Review of Draw-Tite Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 19260

Today we're going to take a look at the Draw Tite 1-7/8 inch diameter chrome hitch ball, has a one inch shank diameter and a 2,000 pound weight capacity. Now this hitch ball installs onto your ball mount, provides the connection point for your trailer's coupler. This does use the fine threads to provide an exceptionally tight and strong grip. It's made of a cold forged steel, which is very strong and durable and you can notice it has a nice corrosion resistant Chrome finish to it. These flat edges right here, these are built in wrench flats, make it very easy to hold the ball in place while you're tightening the nut.Does include the lock washer and the nut, so when you go to install this, you'll drop this through the ball hole in your ball mount. Put your washer on, take your nut, go ahead and install your nut and then tighten your nut all the way down until it tightens up and then torque it to the manufacturer specifications.

The ball diameter again, which is marked on the top is 1-7/8 inch. The weight capacity, which is also stamped up there is 2,000 pounds. Give you a few dimensions on this. The shank diameter, which is critical because when you go to put this on a ball mount, you do want to make sure sure the ball Mount has the correct platform thickness and ball hole diameter.So the diameter on the shank is going to be right at one inch. Total length is 2-1/8 inches.

And again, it's designed to fit a ball mount that has a one inch diameter ball hole and a platform thickness of any words from a half an inch to one inch deck. But that should do it for the review on the Draw Tite 1-7/8 inch chrome hitch ball with the one inch shank diameter and a 2,000 pound weight capacity.

Comments
Sorry I did not write back sooner, it’s has been a busy October. I really like everything that I bought. So far I have only used the hitch for my bike rack. But I am planning on using a friends trailer for some yard work and home project jobs. I am a welder by trade and everything is well built and as expected, no issues with anything. I especially like how easy the electrical was to connect to the factory harness. My friend who owns the trailer recently bought another truck and with my recommendation he also purchased a trailer hitch and the other parts he needed from etrailer.com. I have recommended etrailer.com to literally everyone I know. I really like the products and will be a return customer.

The etrailer Curt Hidden Hitch was almost $200 less expensive than the suburu dealer, without installation. Thank you etrailer your suburu install video was fantastic. Very apprehensive about removing the entire rear bumper panel on my new outback; but had my laptop open in the back of the suv,and installed like clockwork. Hidden hitch has no unsightly drop bars hanging Below the bumper. Unbelievable price, looks and Tows great, and saved well over $350 installing Myself. Suby looks great, and friends are amazed I would tackle this job myself...This is my 2nd hitch from etrailer, and I like the efficiency, and detail of your website. HATS OFF to you etrailer.

  • What is the Likely Ball Diameter Required for a 2012 Flagstaff Micro Lite Trailer
    A 1-7/8 inch ball is usually found on very small trailers. While it is possible that the trailer takes a 1-7/8 inch ball it seems more likely that it would take a 2 inch since the dry weight of the trailer is 3,630 pounds. The coupler should have the ball requirement stamped into the top of it. Most stand alone 1-7/8 inch balls max out at 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight though there are a few exceptions that are rated higher. Another option is to go with an interchangeable ball...

  • Availability of High Capacity 1-7/8 Inch Diameter Trailer Ball
    We do offer a 1-7/8 inch diameter trailer ball with a maximum capacity of 8,000 lbs, but it is an Interchangable Hitch Ball Set from Tow Ready, part # 63802. In order to get a higher capacity like that, you would need to go with an interchangeable ball set. Another option would be the Convert-A-Ball # 105TB which would also have a 10,000 lb capacity. You'll want to make sure the ball you choose has a shank the same diameter as the hole on your ball mount. Both trailer balls I mentioned...

Then the ball mount or drawbar is attached to the hitch receiver using a pin and clip, or locking mechanism. Then the ball mount is outfitted with the appropriate size trailer ball.

  • Can a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Ball Be Replaced with a 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball on a 2 Inch Hitch Receiver
    To replace the hitch ball you would simply loosen and remove the hitch ball nut and pull the ball out of the ball mount hole. You may need a large wrench to loosen the nut. 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. Please note, however, that some ball mounts for 2 inch x 2 inch hitches require a hitch ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank. If your current...

  • Utility Trailer Coupler Will Not Secure Around Trailer Hitch Ball
    Having a system that doesn't work properly can be a very unsettling problem. If the coupler is not locking on the trailer ball, it sounds like you actually have a ball that is too small. Check out the coupler and the size ball required is typically stamped into the coupler somewhere. Check the latch pin on the coupler to see if it is bent. If so, let me know what the make and model of the coupler is and we can see if there is a repair kit available. I think the problem may be...

  • Can a 1-7/8 inch Ball be Used to Replace a 2 inch Ball on a Trailer that is Hard to Unhook
    No, it is not safe to use a 1-7/8 inch ball with a trailer that has a 2 inch ball coupler. Most couplers have an adjustment for the latching mechanism that may solve your issue. If you are hooking and unhooking on a surface that is not level, normally uphill or downhill, this too can cause the issue you have explained. If you can attach and un hook on a more level surface there will not be as much pressure between the hitch ball and coupler and the process will be much easier. If...

  • Is a Hitch Necessary for a 1995 Ford Ranger With Bumper That has Hitch Ball Holes?
    If your brother's 1995 Ford Ranger has a bumper with integrated hitch ball holes, then you may not need a hitch, depending on the weight of the camper and the towing capacity of the Ranger using the bumper hitch ball. If his Ranger did have the ability to pull your pop-up camper, you would only need a hitch ball with the same diameter as the coupler on your camper, and the shank diameter that fits the hitch ball hole on your brother's Ranger. For example, the Draw-Tite # 19260 is a 1-7/8"...

  • 1992 Dodge Ram 250 Conversion Van Hitch Recommendation
    The Zephyr conversion didn't do anything to change the rear bumper and frame area of your 1992 Ram 250 van, so a standard hitch would work great for you. I'd recommend the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch # C13041. The hitch has a 6000 lb towing/600 lb tongue weight capacity. If used with a weight distribution system, that would climb to 10,000/1000 lbs. In other words, the hitch will have more towing capacity than the van, although you'll be limited to the actual capacity of the van. The...

It is simply the trailer hitch and the needed hardware to install it. None of our trailer hitch receivers include the wiring harness needed for towing.

This trailer weight sits well below its limits. I also took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2017 Subaru Outback and it lists a towing capacity of 2,700 pounds as long as the trailer is equipped with brakes. If the trailer doesn't have brakes the towing capacity drops to 1,000 pounds....

    I'm assuming you're wondering which ball mount you're needing. When installed, the receiver tube will be about 19 inches off the ground, given that the average trailer coupler height is 17-18 inches, I'd recommend the # 2923 which offers a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop, depending on the orientation you use it in. For a 2 inch ball, use # 63845 or # 19260 for a 1-7/8 inch ball.

    The best hitch alternative for you will depend on how visible you'd like the hitch to be. If you'd rather not have the entire hitch visible, the Draw-Tite # 76170 which is mostly concealed would be my recommendation. On the upside, this hitch offers 1-1/2 inches more ground clearance, which is important in a minivan. However the installation is more involved and would require temporarily removing the rear bumper cover. If you're not terribly concerned if the hitch is visible and the reduced...

    We have friction sway control units that will work great to prevent the type of sway you are describing. For that the Curt part # 17200 would be a really great option.

As you mentioned in your question this is the case for the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # 76134.
