Video Transcript for Tow Ready Pintle Hitch - Pintle Hook - Ball Combo - TR63042 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number TR63042. This is the Pintle Hook Combo from Tow Ready. It's going to feature a 2-5/16" hitch ball and you can easily connect your lunette ring to the pintle hook. It's made from a steel construction with a powder coat finish so it's going to be very durable. It's also going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion. It's got a nice solid steel construction so you got the solid shank here on the back.

This portion here is going to slide into your 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. You're going to push it in until you get your pin holes to line up with one another and then you'll need to install a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. The diameter of these pin holes are going to measure 5/8". The pin and clip or pin and lock is going to be sold separately. If you don't already have one you can refer to our website and check out some of your options. It's going to offer a tongue weight capacity of 2,400 lbs; the ball capacity of 12,000 lbs.

The pintle capacity is also going to be 12,000 lbs. The ball hole diameter that the ball sits in is going to measure 1-1/8". If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank, that's going to give us a measurement of 2-1/2". The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball is going to measure 11-3/4"; and then the overall length is going to give us a measurement of 15-1/2". The system is very easy to operate. All you have to do is undo the clip from the pin, lift up on the T-handle and pull it back.

If you just want to use the hitch ball, let's say to tow a trailer, then you would reinstall the pin and clip through this portion here to secure this in the upright position. The measurement that we have from the back of the hitch ball to the back of this upright portion, that's going to give us a measurement of about 1-3/4" to 1-7/8". Then if you need to attach your lunette ring you can go and do that and then close the top portion and then resecure it by installing the pin and clip. The pin is attached with a safety chain that way it's always going to stay close at hand; you don't have to worry about losing that. The system is very easy to install inside your hitch. All you have to do is take that, slide the shank inside your receiver tube, line up your pin holes and insert your hitch pin and clip or hitch pin and lock.

The one I'm using in our demonstration today can be found on our website with part number PC3. It's going to be a 5/8" pin and it's going to come with a clip. That's going to do it for today's review of part number TR63042. This is the Pintle Hook Combo from Tow Ready Ball Mounts. .

It's a great product, but the length can be a problem. Although ultimately its my fault, I actually bent my truck hitch because of too much tongue weight. The length it sticks out from the truck creates a lot of downward twisting weight on the truck hitch. If you are maxing out the ratings on the hitch, be careful.

Very versatile unit. Pull trailers, use it for recovery and pulling road debris… thinking on front hitch receiver for removable winch

Review from a similar Tow Ready Pintle Combo in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Exactly what we needed to fit our Land Cruisers in Chad that are equipped with bolt-on pintle hitches. No knowledge or availability of trailer hitches in this country. Very good price and regular communications from shipping department during the back-order process.

Review from a similar Tow Ready Pintle Combo in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


i would not think of stocking my shelves with anything but Etrailer products. I get 3 different PINTLE HOOK COMBOS and they are the best. I get nothing but compliments on this product. Some think they are pricey but after they try it,they come back every time. Thank you Etrailer.

Review from a similar Tow Ready Pintle Combo in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Pintle with shank shipping was very fast. the shank on this is solid. very heavy duty and has some good weight to it, maybe about 30lbs or more. extends out very far when compared to a standard shank with tow ball. recommended for heavy duty towing. love the product, works perfect on my 1990 Bronco (im actually thinking its a bit to heavy duty for my bronco). Just helped my buddy with his 30' boat. love the pintle because it locks it down however it dose make a bit more noise not that that matters. Works good for just passing tow straps threw it like a large D hook

Review from a similar Tow Ready Pintle Combo in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I just got it so it hasn't had the "acid tect" yet. I can say that it's very heavy and appears to be very solid and well made. I don't anticipate any issues at all. I work for a utility company. Some of our trailers have a two inch ball. Others have the pintle hook. This hitch will save me a lot of time & effort spent switching between the two.The service and quick shipping from etrailer was also very impressive.

Review from a similar Tow Ready Pintle Combo in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


The hitch I ordered came very quickly. I was able to track it and I pretty much knew when it would be at my door step. The hitch was more then I expected Heavy Duty. Awesome quality and more features then I realized. The fit was perfect. I will be using the hitch on a front mount receiver on my 2014 Silverado.

See what our Experts say about this Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Is there a Ball Mount that Fits a 2-9/16 Inch Receiver
    Receiver sizes on vehicles will be 1-1/4, 2, or 2-1/2 inches. This is measuring the inside (opening) of the receiver. You likely have a 2-1/2 inch receiver if you are measuring the inside or possibly a 2 inch if you are measuring the outside. We have numerous 2-1/2 inch ball mount options. I have included a link to them for you to view.

  • Can Pintle Hook Combo # TR63042 Secure the Trailer Coupler to the Ball
    A pintle hook is not designed to prevent standard trailer coupler from coming off of the hitch ball. There is also a good possibility that the top portion of the pintle hook would not be able to close far enough to insert the pin through the pintle hook. The top of the coupler will sit further above the hitch ball than what the pintle hook was designed for. If your trailer coupler pops off of your hitch ball, then there is likely a problem with the coupler. I recommend having the trailer...

  • Combo Ball Mount and Pintle Hook Combo Recommendation for a 2006 Ford F350.
    As long as the ball couplers of the trailers you plan on towing are designed for a 2 inch hitch ball the Pintle Hook Combo Ball Mount part # TR63041 should work well for you. If you need a 2-5/16 inch ball you would want the Pintle Hook Combo Ball Mount # TR63042 instead as this comes with a 2-5/16 inch ball. You will want to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine what your towing capacities are and be sure not to exceed this figure with any of your trailers.

  • Availability of 2-Inch and 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Balls for TowReady Pintle Hook Combo, Part # TR63042
    We offer both 1-7/8 inch and 2 inch ball sizes for your pintle setup. The 1-7/8 size is part # 63050; this ball is rated at 6000 lbs. The 2-inch size is part # TR63051; this ball is rated at 10,000 lbs. Both hitch balls have the same shank diameter (specified as 1-1/8 and measuring slightly smaller). My contact at TowReady confirmed that their specified shank diameter for the 2-5/16 inch ball supplied with your TowReady Pintle Hook Combo, Part # TR63042, is 1-1/8 inches. I pulled a sample...

  • Can Pintle Hook/Ball Combo be Used with Curt Trailer Hitch # C15325 on 1998 Chevy C/K Series Truck
    On Class III and higher trailer hitches like the Class V Curt hitch # C15325, you can use any ball mount set up that works for you. So you will be able to use a pintle/ball combo like # TR63042.

  • Replacement Ball for a Draw-Tite Pintle Hitch Combination Trailer Hitch
    The correct replacement ball for a Draw-Tite Pintle Hook Combo, # 63012, with a 2-5/16 inch ball is the Pintle Hitch Ball, # 63052. The Tow Ready Ball, # 63019, fits pintle hitch # TR63042. If you were towing a trailer with a lunette ring, you would not remove the ball. The ball is what retains the ring and the top part of the pintle hitch keeps it from jumping up and off of the ball.

  • What is a Pintle Hitch
    A pintle hitch is primarily used in heavy duty towing situations. The hitch itself resembles a hook that can be closed around the lunette ring that is mounted on the trailer. Part # 63014 is a good example of a pintle hook. If you look at part # 63022, you can see what the lunette ring looks like. Combination pintles are available, like part # TR63042. This item can accommodate either a standard coupler or a lunette ring. The pintle/lunette combination is typically used on construction...

  • Class IV ball Mount and Ball Recommendations for a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    We have numerous ball mount styles and capacities that fit in a 2 inch trailer hitch, see link. For a Class IV with 16,000 pound capacity, the most popular options is # 40330 if you are looking for a standard fix ball mount. For a ball you can use # A-90 for a 2 inch or # 19286 for a 2-5/16 inch. If you are looking for a pintle hook combo, you could use # TR63041. The ball capacity on this one is 7,000 pounds and the pintle capacity is 12,000 pounds. For the same set up but with a 2-5/16...

  • Using a Pintle Hook and Lunette Ring Assembly and Coupler and Trailer Hitch Ball
    I do have a solution that I think will work for you. If you can mount a Bulldog channel to the front of the trailer, # BDAC5000300, then you could use a coupler like # BDA200C0317, AND use lunette ring # 337B16137 when needed. We also have the pintle hook combo # TR63041 for a 2 inch ball, # TR63042 for a 2-5/16 inch ball to adapter the vehicle end of the set up.
