Review of Demco Ball Mounts DM05593-95

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number DM05593-95. This is the Demco 2-Tang Clevis for adjustable channel mounts. The 2-tang clevis is designed to couple with a lunette ring. Your clevis pin is going to be sold separately. We're going to take a measurement of the clevis hole diameter that this particular mount offers. That's going to give us a diameter of about 7/8 of an inch. The platform with the hole can also be used as a ball mount for standard towing, and the adjustable channel mount is going to let you change the height of the clevis depending on your application.

Channel bracket and mounting hardware are sold separately. This unit's made from a sturdy steel construction with a zinc plating, so it's going to offer corrosion resistance. It's also going to feature 200 hour salt spray rating. Now, this is designed for 3 inch wide channel brackets. We take a measurement from outside edge to outside edge. That's going to give us a measurement of just under 3 inches, so it will work well with a 3 inch wide channel bracket.

The hole separation that we're going to have between these two holes here, that's going to measure separation of 2 inches on a center. Now, these are going to have a diameter of 5/8 of an inch, or just a little bit larger than 5/8 of an inch, so it's designed to accept 5/8 inch diameter bolts. Now, the clevis tang width here, just measuring the width of one of the tangs, that's going to give us a measurement, or a width, of about . Looks to be about 5/8 of an inch. That's going to be the same for each tang. Inside width from the bottom, or inside edge to inside edge, that's going to give us a measurement of about 2 inches.

The depth that we have, measuring from this bar right here to the closest point of the clevis hole, that's going to give us a measurement . Looks to be about 1 and 7/8 of an inch. The length that we have from the center of the mounting holes to the end of the unit right here, that's going to give us a measurement of about 8 and 3/8 of an inch. Now, I do have an adjustable channel bracket here, just to show you how this would work. It would be placed inside, again. It's designed for 3 inch wide channel brackets.

We do offer those here on our website and, again, channel bracket and hardware are going to be sold separately, but once you have it installed in the bracket, you can slide it up and down, line up the holes that you need to get it to the appropriate height that you need for your particular application, and then simply just insert the hardware, get everything tightened down. This particular clevis is going to have a weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. Again, these holes are going to be separated on 2 inch center. Steel construction, nice, strong, durable mount. That's going to do it for our review of part number DM05593-95. This is the Demco 2-Tang Clevis. .
