Trailer Ball Mounts

What are Ball Mounts?

Ball mounts are an important link in your towing system. Trailer hitch ball mounts are the connection between the trailer and the hitch on your vehicle and selecting the correct trailer hitch ball mount can drastically improve how a trailer handles.

The ball mount that you select is based on the weight requirements, receiver hitch size, the ball size, and the heights of the tow vehicle vs. the trailer.

There are some factors to consider when choosing a hitch ball mount and some measurements that should be taken to ensure you select the correct mount.

In this video, we explain the different types of ball mounts and how to choose between them Trailer Ball Mounts

Measurements

There are two important measurements to consider when purchasing a trailer ball mount. The rise and drop, and the length of the ball mount. By taking the correct measurements you can ensure that your towing is done safely and correctly.


Leaf Spring Bolt Size

Length – This is the center to center distance between the tow ball and the pin hole. This measurement will set how far the tow ball sits behind your tow vehicle. The farther that your hitch ball sits from the tow vehicle the more weight will be leveraged onto the tow vehicle’s suspension. A correct length ball mount allows the trailer to turn in its full range of motion without excessive length.

Rise/Drop – This is the measurement from the hitch shank to where the tow ball base will sit. A straight mount will have zero rise or drop, but in most cases the tow vehicle and the trailer tongue will not be at the same height. This is where a rise or drop ball mount comes in. For the safest and most comfortable towing experience the trailer and ball mount should be set up to tow on a level plane.

To select the correct rise or drop measure from the ground to the top of your hitch receiver tube and from the ground to the inside of the trailer tongue. Subtract the hitch height from the trailer height and subtract 3” for the height of the ball and the difference between the numbers is the rise or drop you will need.

Trailer Tongue Height

Leaf Spring Bolt Size

Hitch Height

Leaf Spring Bolt Size
Drop Ball Mount Example: Raised Ball Mount Example:
18” Trailer Tongue 24” Trailer Tongue
-23” Hitch height -17” Hitch Height
-3” Ball height -3” Ball height
-------------------------- --------------------------
-8 4
An 8” drop ball mount will be required for this setup. A 4” raised ball mount will be required for this setup to be level.

ball mount terms

There are different terms used when describing the features of a ball mounts that you may not be familiar with.

Weight Carrying – Generally refers to lighter Class I and Class II towing setups 3500 LBS gross trailer weight and less. Weight carrying hitches and ball mounts will support the trailer tongue weight fully.

Weight Distributing – Towing setups Class III and above will allow you to use weight distribution hitches to leverage weight across all axles on the tow vehicle and the trailer more evenly. This increases the maximum allowable towing weights and lowers the wear and tear on both tow vehicles and trailers.

Gross Trailer weight – The weight of the trailer itself and its contents

Tongue weight – Downward force that a trailer is exerting on the ball mount and the hitch. This varies depending on how the trailer is loaded, the axle setup, and if a weight distribution system is being used.

Receiver shank – The square tube that slides into the receiver hitch. The ball mount and the hitch must match each other.

Ball hole size – The threaded portion of the ball must match the size of the ball mount.

Ball Mount Classes

Ball mounts are sorted by classes to match the sizing and weight requirements of receiver hitches. Hitches and tow ball mounts are classed to ensure that vehicles are towing weights that are appropriate for their tow ratings. Using a higher class draw bar does not increase the capacity of your hitch so always adhere to the maximum rating of your hitch and do not exceed this rating. The component with the lowest weight rating sets the maximum safe towing weight for the entire system.

Specialty Ball Mounts

There are options for specialty ball mounts depending on your towing needs. Specialty ball mounts can increase the convenience of towing and make life a little easier.

  • Adjustable Ball Mounts - allow the height to be adjusted to multiple positions on a single ball mount. Secured with a heavy gauge pin and a locking pin the height can be raised or lowered as needed.
  • 2 Ball Mounts/Tri-Ball Mounts - have the hitch balls mounted permanently and will allow you to carry two or all three ball sizes in one mount.

Ball mount material and coatings

Ball mounts are available in different materials and different coatings to prevent corrosion.

materials

Steel

Steel Ball Mount

Steel is the standard material that most ball mounts are made from. Steel ball mounts are reliable and the most cost effective. They may be hollow shank or solid depending on the weight capacity and application and they will normally be welded together.

Solid Forged Steel

Forged Ball Mount

Forged as once piece there will be no welds. Forged steel will be a solid shank or I-beam style and they will be heavy. Solid forged steel ball mounts will be used in heavier duty applications.

Aluminum

Aluminum Ball Mount

Lightweight and naturally resistant to rust. Aluminum ball mounts are resistant to weakening from corrosion and require no paint or coating.


coatings

Steel trailer hitch ball mounts will receive a coating from the factory to help resist corrosion. These coating options are the first line of defense against rust weakening your towing assembly.

Powder Coat - A layer of plastic powder is applied using a static charge and baked on to leave a smooth and sealed coating. Powder coat is tough but with enough rough handling it can chip, and some chemicals can weaken it.

Powder Coat Ball Mount
Zinc - Zinc is a metal applied to the outer surface of the hitch. Normally by hot dipping in molten zinc this coating is extremely durable and highly resistant to corrosion. Zinc coatings are costlier, and this may be reflected in the price of the hitch.
Zinc Ball Mount
