Video Transcript for Convert-A-Ball Hitch Ball 105B Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Convert-A-Ball extra long nickel plated steel shank with a 10,000 pound weight capacity. Now this part will increase the versatility of your convertible set or you can use this extra long shank as a replacement. This part does use a new non-electric nickel plating technology to produce a nice strong protective finish. It is corrosion resistant, non-magnetic and stain repellent. It does have uniform coverage, even on the hard to protect recesses and interior surfaces, uses an eco-friendly plating method which is less harmful to the environment than traditional chrome electroplating and each part is made in the USA. Now it does come with everything shown here, the shank itself, the washer, the nut and a cotter pin. A few specs on this, this is designed to fit ball mounts with a 1 inch diameter ball hole and a platform that is between 1 and 1 eighths inch and 2 inches thick. It works with convertible 1 and 7 eighths inch diameter, 2 inch diameter and 2 and 5 sixteenths diameter interchangeable hitch balls which will fit right up here on the top.

Now again, the diameter on the shank itself is right at 1 inch. The length on the extra long shank is 3 and a half inches and it does have a towing capacity of 10,000 pounds and that is stamped right on the side here, 10,000 pounds. When you go to install this, what you will want to do is go ahead and drop this though the hole in the ball mount, put your washer up on there. Take the nut, go ahead and tighten that down and then torque it to specs and then once it's all torqued for extra security just run your cotter pin through there and you're all ready to go. That should do it for the review on the Convert-A-Ball extra long nickel plated steel shank with a 10,000 pound weight capacity.

This as well as all Convert A Ball Shanks I have are GREAT. I can switch all three ball sizes between any of the shanks. This is a good cost savings measure. Time saver as well. It only takes seconds to switch between the ball sizes. Great for adjustable shanks to make them very versatile. Adjust ball height and size fast and easy. All available from etrailer.


Comments
Better than great. Switch between trailer couplers in seconds in stead of minutes. Just pick the ball size you need and install or switch between the sizes, adjust up and down on shank adjustable shank and adapter required to height needed. Couldnt be easier or safer. No wrenches needed. Love the setup. All available from etrailer.

Changeable trailer hitch mounts. Great idea, saves time in changing different balls and is space efficient. Super item to have if you tow or move trailers etc.

Order came in a short time. Converting to different balls is easy. With different types of hitches makes it simpler than conventional balls.

Review from a similar Interchangeable Nickel Shank in Accessories and Parts


The product was exactly as described on your site, got here very quickly, and works great. The old 1-7/8" and 2" Convert-A-Ball trailer balls I already had fit perfectly. Your service and delivery were great, and I would definitely purchase from etrailer.com again.
Thanks for the personalized service and follow-up!

Review from a similar Interchangeable Nickel Shank in Accessories and Parts


This is the second one that I have had. The first one I accidently sold on a previous vehicle. The availability of all three size balls is very handy. I purchased a mounting rack and mounted it in the truck tool box so that I had all three balls available in the truck, and locked up so they wouldn't get stolen. Great invention!!!


Comments
Still as shiny as the day I put it on the Suburban. Very handy.

Have used Convert-a-Ball products for decades. Useful for changing ball size when towing trailers with different size hitches. I also use this shank for a bicycle rack, which is designed to replace the ball.

When purchasing, ensure the shank diameter and length are consistent with the size of your hitch and with your towing needs.

Review from a similar Interchangeable Nickel Shank in Accessories and Parts


Honestly, I have not used the "Convert-A-Ball shank" at all. So I really cannot give it a fair rating. I owned a similar. (possibly the same), shank years ago if this is the same manufacturer, then I can tell you that the product is awesome.

Review from a similar Interchangeable Nickel Shank in Accessories and Parts


I use the Convert-A-Ball system to ease trailer connection from multiple trailers to multiple vehicles using different size balls. I appreciate etrailers prompt delivery, reliable parts and courteous staff and highly recommend this company.

The convert-a-ball, along with the additional post, will now allow me to use either trailer with either vehicle. Balls switch out quick and easily. Well made product, no more having to constantly switch out balls.
