Review of the Draw-Tite 1-7/8 inch Chrome Hitch Ball


Today, we're going to be taking a look at Draw-Tite's one and seven eighths inch hitch ball with a three quarter inch shank. This ball is designed to work with both Class I and Class II hitches. With a maximum towing capacity of 2000 pounds, that makes it perfect for our Class I trailer here that also accepts a one and seven eighths inch ball. We can just slide it down on there and it snaps in place keeping it nice and secure. This ball mount is going to be ideal for small utility trailers like this for if you just need to get some things moved around or maybe you're helping a buddy move and you just need to have some extra space. And it's also great for recreational activities like hauling around some dirt bikes or possibly some small jet skis or ATVs.

Our ball is constructed of a cold forged steel with a chrome plating to give it a nice appearance and also to protect it against corrosion.Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it mounted up onto your ball mount. Now that you got your ball, you are going to need a ball mount for it. You'll want to choose one with the appropriate drop that matches your trailer so you'll have a nice level towing experience. That'll just provide better tongue weight and transitioning of the weight onto your vehicle. We'll now need to take our ball, we're going to put it in our ball mount.

You'll want to choose if you want it in the drop or rise position. We're going to be placing ours in the rise position, so that way when it's in our trailer, it raises it up. Place the included lock washer on the back, followed by the nut. We'll then want to clamp our ball into our vice here. And then we can tighten it down to the specifications included with your ball.When you're ready to use the ball mount, you simply slide it into your one and a quarter inch receiver matching up the hole with the ball mount in the hole in the hitch.

We'll then take the included half inch hitch pin and clip to secure it to our receiver. And we're now ready to attach our trailer to it. And that completes our look at Draw-Tite's one and seven eighths inch hitch ball with a three quarter inch shank.
