Video Transcript for Tow Ready Pintle Hitch - Pintle Hook - Standard - 63016 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number 63016. This is the pintle hook from Tow Ready. This pintle hook can be bolted to a pintle hitch mount or directly to a reinforced utility truck bumper. It's going to give us a gross towing weight of 60,000 pounds with a maximum tongue weight of 6,000 pounds. All the mounting hardware that you need is included. It's made from a steel construction with a powder coat finish so it's going to stand up well against rust and corrosion. If we take a look at the mount holes here on the backside, they're going to give us a diameter of 17/32nds of a inch.

Measuring center on center this way it's going to measure 3 3/8ths of an inch, center on center up and down it's going to measure 1 3/4 of an inch. To gain access to make the connection, all we have to do is remove the pin, just pull that out, then we just have to lift up on the T-handle and push back on the pintle hook. Now we can attach it to our Lunette ring. Once we have it in place we just shut it over the top of the ring and then all we have to do is reinsert the pin. It's nice because it's attached with a chain so it's always going to stay close at hand, we don't have to worry about losing it. It's a really simple installation for our demonstration today I'm just going to show you how you would install it onto a pintle hitch mount. All you would have to do is line up your holes, then place through the bolts, then simply on the back side you would just place on your lock washer and secure it by installing the nut and tightening everything down.

Once you have that done for all four mount locations you should be set. You can make your connection and then you can get out on the road. That's going to do it for today's review of part number 63016. This is the pintle hook from Tow Ready rated at 60,000 pounds. .

Pintle Hook, Bolt-On, 60K - 63016

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (170 Customer Reviews)


My order came quickly and the pintle hook was of high quality the installation was easy


Fast shipping! Good communication as we ll!


60k pintle hitch product is as described and expected - seems very 'beefy' and works as is should. Separately, I was very pleasantly surprised when Etrailers emailed me the day after my order was placed. They wanted to let me know that they were able to get my purchase shipped the same day it was ordered AND that they 'decided' to upgrade the standard shipping that I selected and paid for up to an enhanced priority 3-5 day shipping. Great great Christmas present to a new customer. I will look to them again when I may have a future trailer supply need.


I thought that customer service was pretty much gone in this country until I ordered from E-trailer. I've never ordered from them before but certainly will again when I need trailer supplies. The product shipped out on a Sunday which was the first thing that surprised me. Then I received an email with someone's name, phone number, and email in case I had any questions. The day it arrived I received an email from the same person telling me that the package had arrived. To top it all off the products were properly boxed so that even UPS couldn't destroy my two hitch parts!
Very impressed!!! Keep up the great work etrailer.


My latest purchase From E-trailer was a a Pintle hook and Pintle hook mounting plate. As usual, the items are Top Quality and the shipping was FAST!
I have ordered many times from E-trailer and have NEVER had a problem! I purchase all my hitch and trailer items from E-trailer, no reason to go anywhere else!!!



I purchased B&W pintle hook adjustable mount plate and 60k bolt on pintle hook. Very happy with the products they are just what I needed and the shipping was so quick at my door in 3 days. Thanks Etrailer


Our team just needed a pintle hook and this product arrived on-site quickly. Everything recieved matched the expectations we had of the product. I would happily recommend using for future purchases.


The 63016 Pintle Hook is very light duty. It is rated at 60K, but is a lot lighter built than most 60K Pintle Hooks we purchase. We will not be able to use it in our normal application.


Ordered many products from etrailer. Good quality with fast shipping. Would highly recommend any of their products.


Strong and well manufactured piece of hardware. More importantly was the awesome service from e-trailer as they delivered it on time. I don't have time to visit physical stores and they usually do not have the products I need. Being able to see videos, demonstrations helps me in my purchase decision.


This is an excellent Pintle hook. I towed my M-105 1.5 ton military trailer with this hook and my chevy blazer. Worked like a charm.


Shipped same day. Was exactly what I ordered. Never had a problem with!


Strong hitch


Fast delivery, great quality, thanks!

What is the diameter of the pintle shaft which the lunette ring goes over? 2.5 or 3?Thanks.

A high quality commercial grade hitch. I’ve been using it for a year and it has functioned flawlessly.


Another good quality part with exceptional shipping from etrailer. Good job guys.


What can I say! Everything exceptional in ordering from this company! Pricing, quality, communications and prompt processing and shipment! How can you beat this combination!


Have had it for a year in Central New York through winter and salt and everything has been working Great.


Fast delivery. Is exactly what I expect ed







TI work good

See what our Experts say about this Tow Ready Pintle Hitch

  • Weight Capacity of Tow Ready Pintle Hook 63016
    The Tow Ready Pintle Hook # 63016 is indeed rated for 60K GTW and 14K vertical load. I confirmed these specs with Tow Ready. Those are high weight ratings but keep in mind that the nature of a pintle hook, which has a large amount of flat steel surface area to couple to the mount, disperses that load across many square inches. Plus this hook's Grade 8 hardware is stronger than the Grade 5 hardware used for most standard bumper hitches.

  • What is the Standard Bolt Pattern for Pintle Hooks
    Most pintle hooks use a standard bolt pattern which is 3-3/8" horizontally center to center and 1-3/4" vertically center to center (see photo). Therefore, the Pintle Hook part # 63016 would be a direct fit and work well for you. It also comes with all the mounting hardware needed for installation. I have attached a review video of the above hook for you as well.

  • What Surface Should the 60k Pintle Hook 63016 be Attached to Ensure Full Capacity
    Tow Ready does not have a minimum plate thickness that they recommend for the # 630016 to ensure it's full capacity, instead they recommend attaching it to a surface that is also rated for as much capacity as needed. So if the bumper/plate is rated for 60k as well then it would have it's full capacity.

  • What is the Capacity of the Tow Ready Pintle Hook 63016
    As long as the total weight of the trailer and it's cargo are no more than 60,000-lbs then you can use the Tow Ready Pintle Hook, Bolt-On, 60K # 63016 to connect the truck to the trailer. It sounds like you've got a 40,000-lbs capacity trailer, so this should work just fine. If you need mounting hardware you can use the Pintle Hook Mounting Kit # 43076. I've linked a short review video of this pintle hitch for you to have a look at, as well.

  • What Type of Heavy Duty Hitch Fits Buyers Products Fabricators Hitch Plate # 3371809042
    Since pintle setups are much more heavy duty than receiver hitch openings there isn't a hitch opening that fits the Buyers Products Fabricators Hitch Plate # 3371809042 that you referenced. You'd need something like the part # 63016 which has a 60k capacity.

  • Is it Normal for Pintle Hook Towing Setup to Make Noise When Starting/Stopping
    The standard size for Lunette rings is 3 inch like what you have. While I am not totally certain what hook you have it's likely you did buy the correct size. Due to the looser connections of Pintle/Lunette setups some noise is to be expected. Especially if the hook is the style with a hitch ball too as the hook doesn't end up as smooth. The quietest setups are ones like the part # 63016 which have a smoother hook.

  • What is the Bolt Hole Pattern for Mounting the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13018
    The bolt hole pattern center on center for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13018 is 3-1/4 inches horizontally and 2-1/4 inch vertically. This varies from the 3-3/8 inch horizontal and 1-3/4 inch vertical measurements that a typical Pintle Hitch, like part # 63016, has. This Curt trailer hitch receiver fits the following vehicles: 1998 - 2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 2003 - 2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 1999 - 2001 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 2002 - 2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 You...

  • Availability of Pintle Hitch Mount for 2 Inch Hitch With Highest Weight Capacity
    The highest weight rated pintle hitch mount I have that will fit in a 2 inch hitch receiver is the Convert-A-Ball, part # PH2. rated for up to 16,000 pounds. Tow Ready pintle hitch # 63016 does not fit a 2 inch receiver.

  • Pintle Hook Recommendation for Buyers Products Fabricators Hitch Plate
    The Buyers Products Fabricators Hitch Plate part # 3371809027A is designed to work with pintle hooks that have a 1-3/4" x 3-3/8" wide bolt pattern like the Bolt-On Pintle Hook part # 63016. This is a standard pattern that most pintle hooks use so if you have a few already they should fit.

  • High Capacity Ball Mount Recommendation for Heavy Boat Trailer
    The highest capacity ball mount we offer is the BulletProof adjustable ball mount part # ED30OFFSET which has a 36,000 lb capacity when used with the 2-5/16 inch ball. This requires a 3 inch trailer hitch. If your trailer really weighs 18k it would seem pretty unlikely you have a 7,000 lb tongue weight since tongue weight is typically 10-15 percent of total trailer weight. Even our highest capacity pintle that has a 60k trailer weight capacity # 63016 only has a 6k tongue weight capacity.

  • Is Mounting Hardware Needed for Buyers Products Fabricators Hitch Plate & Tow Ready Pintle Hook
    There actually won't be any bolts needed at all for the hitch plate and pintle hook you mentioned. The reason is that you will weld on the Buyers Products Fabricators Hitch Plate # 3371809027A, and the mounting bolts actually come with the Tow Ready Pintle Hook # 63016. These are Grade 8 bolts that measure about 2-1/4 inches from the bottom of the bolt head and are actually the Pintle Hook Mounting Kit # 43076.

  • Inside Dimension of Tow Ready 63016 Pintle Hook
    The Tow Ready # 63016 pintle hook will indeed work with a 3 x 1-5/8 lunette ring like # 337BDB1394. At the narrowest part, the inside width is 1-3/4 inches, which widens out to 2 inches, as shown in the provided photo.

    I called my contact at K-Source and they told me most of the mirrors are such an easy install they do not include instructions with the mirror. The removal and installation of the K-Source Replacement Side Mirror, part # KS63015H on your 2010 Odyssey is a very simple task. This is for the passenger side. If you need the mirror for the driver side you will need part # KS63016H. You just need to remove the protective cover on the inside of the door and you will have access to the three...
