Review of the Draw-Tite 2 Inch Long Shank Hitch Ball


Brad Hello, neighbors, it's Brad here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look at the Draw-Tite two inch ball. Now this is a 3/4 inch diameter and the shank length is gonna be 1 9/16. This is gonna be a Class I and Class II ball, so it's gonna be great for towing some smaller trailers. Now this ball is a 3,500 gross trailer weight rating, and this is gonna be great for your Class I and II, so smaller cars and vehicles can be able to tow this, especially if you have an inch and 1/4 hitch. Now this can fit on ball mounts that are anywhere from 3/8 to 5/8 inch thick. Now this ball is rated at 3,500 pounds, which is gonna be great for a teardrop trailer just like this, but it's one part of many parts of towing components that you need to make sure is up to that number to make sure it's safe.

So not only should your ball match that weight, but also the ball mount as well as the hitch and the vehicle itself. So it's important to check all those numbers and take the lowest number of all those just to be safe. And that way you're not trying to tow something that's heavier than your components. So installation of the ball on the ball mount is obviously pretty simple. Now included with the ball is gonna be the nut as well as the split washer here.

And also you'll see these flat spots here on the top part here on the ball, and that's gonna be great. You can put a wrench there as you torque this to spec. Now you're gonna want to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for torque specs to make sure that this is tight enough, but also not too tight. And you're gonna need to use a torque wrench to achieve that. If you don't have a torque wrench, we have those here at etrailer.

You can also generally rent those in an auto parts store, but make sure that you torque this down properly and that way, you're towing safely. And this is steel construction, so it's obviously very strong. It also has a nice chrome finish, so this is gonna look really good for a long time. It pretty much won't scratch, it may get a little dings and dents, but overall, the lifetime of it, it's gonna look great. Now sometimes putting a little bit of grease on here when you're towing is also gonna prolong the life of this chrome looking good.

And that was a look at the Draw-Tite two inch ball, and that's with the 3/4 inch diameter by 1 9/16 shank..
