Review of the Brophy Long Shank Hitch Ball


Hello neighbors, it's Brad here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look at the Brophy Chrome-Plated Two Inch Hitch Ball. Our two inch ball here, looks nice and sharp, and also we have a one inch shank hole, so the diameter of the shank will fit perfectly on this Brophy hitch mount. We also have a shank length of 2-1/8 inches. Now it is chrome, so it is gonna resist that elements of towing and the rust and corrosion that can build up. Now, if you want to put a little grease over here, that's just gonna add a little bit more protection, keeping this chrome nice and shiny. And this is gonna work great with any ball mount that has a one inch diameter shank opening.

Now, I really do like the way this looks with the aluminum Brophy. Having them kind of matching, just kind of gives it that little extra nice look to it. Installation is gonna be extremely easy. We can simply remove the nut. We have a lock washer there, and we'll just put that in place.

And you can actually, you have spots here to put your wrench on top, and then when you tighten this down, you're gonna want to use a 1/2 inch torque wrench and adjust that torque to the specifications in the manufacturer's recommendations. Now, the only thing left to do is hook up to your trailer, cross up your safety chains here, plug in your wiring, and you can drop it in place and hit the road. You should have no problem pulling a boat or even a large camper, assuming that your coupler is two inch ball rated. And that was a look at the Brophy two inch hitch ball..
