Review of the Brophy Chrome Internal Thread Hitch Ball


Hey everybody, Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Brophy internal threaded ball mount. So this one is gonna be a two inch. It's gonna have a max capacity of 3,500 pounds and a tongue weight of 350 pounds. But what really sets us apart from any of the others, I'll show you real quick. it's got internal threads.

So what's nice about that, is we're not gonna have a whole lot of stuff hanging on the bottom of our ball mount. So this will be great for that, but also maybe for like some lawn tractors and stuff, you don't really want that shank to stick out that far, 'cause typically it's really low to the ground, so this is gonna be a great option for you. And if you lose this bolter ever, you just need a three quarter inch bolt to go through. We do wanna make sure that the hole on our ball mount is gonna have a diameter of three quarters of an inch, that is what the bolt has, so make sure that it's gonna be able to fit through. You don't really wanna do it on a ball mount that's gonna have a bigger hole than that, this is gonna be a lot of play there.

Another thing to think about is pairing it with the right ball mount. So this one 3500 pounds, 350 pound tongue weight. Make sure you kind of mass it upto whatever ball mount that you choose. And then of course, we wanna make sure that we're not maxing out our hitch either. So kind of take all that into consideration whenever you're setting up your rig, so you go and tow safely.

But there really isn't a whole lot to these trailer balls, I mean this one is pretty unique. I really don't see these often, like at all. So, if that's something that you like, this one is gonna be a great choice for you. Has chrome, but all of these trailer balls are going to start rusting away over time, so just be prepared for that. It does look pretty now, but that's not just with this one, It's with pretty much all of them.

If you really wanted to upgrade, you can grab a aluminum ball, but odds are we're not gonna have one that is a internal thread like this. But this is very unique to this specific ball. Another thing to think about, of course, you wanna match it up with your coupler as well. So usually there's gonna be some indentations up top and that'll tell you what size it is, this one's two inch, but if it is worn off just make sure you confirm exactly what kind of coupler you have. And then, once you have all that squared away, you have it all matched up with what you need to make it nice and safe, you do wanna make sure to torque the thing down to the proper specs with a torque wrench, just to make sure it's nice and snug on there, so it doesn't move. And that'll do it for our look at the Brophy 2-inch internal threaded ball..
