Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (255 Customer Reviews)

Heavy-duty, sturdy steel ball mount with hollow shank measures 13-1/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole. Powder coat finish is corrosion resistant.


I’m pleased with the product and how prompt the delivery was. However the packaging was insufficient and the packaging was torn open all over. Scuffing of the finish is a result and of little consequence due to the intended use. It’s a stinger w/ball for motorhome. May I suggest better packaging in the future


The products themselves I’m sure will do the job. I’m very disappointed in how they arrived. Poorly packaged, one piece of paper wrap did nothing. There was a hole in the box from the hitch not being wrapped up. There are chips in the powder coat.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. I recommend touching up the affected areas with a rust resistant paint such as Rustoleum.


Slightly longer, so you can open your tailgate with a cargo trailer attached. Trailers with a tongue jack that is forward are problematic for tailgates...


Needed to extend my hitch due to tailgate needing to be open. E-Trailer had this one on hand for a very decent price. Easy order, and fast shipping. Thank YOu.


This is really nice. Beveled edges so it slips into receiver hitch so sweet. Beautiful welds heavy weight mount for my weigh safe ball. I bought a 10,000 lbs hitch and I wanted a draw bar with the same type rating. Now the only thing limiting my trailer capacity is my truck's ability to tow, not the hitch, bar or ball.


I purchased a Ranch Hand rear bumper for my 2500HD but wanted to retain the use of a receiver hitch. The ball mount would need to extend 8" from the pin hole to even reach the edge of the bumper. This BM29 ball mount works out perfect. The welds look great and the finish is just fine. The only complaint I have is they gained a little length by moving the pin hole a little closer to the end shortening the insertion amount slightly. Not a big deal, it is just noticable next to the other mounts I have at the house.


Just bought a set of front steps for my boat, and needed some extra length on the ball mount.
This mount fits the bill at 13 1/4 long


Great for chassis cab trucks with long boxes.


just what i needed


Perfect size for a 2004 Jeep Liberty with spare wheel on back. Very nice quality. I can now mount my trailer hassle free.


BM20 Long Drawbar. Perfect for my 2005 Jeep Liberty. I no longer have to remove the spare to tow. Solved what was a major pain!


Always have the products and ships immediately. Thank You


Gives me the extra 6" extension I need so that the rear liftgate on my van can open without hitting the trailer jack, or the spare tire which I carry on the trailer tongue.

This is a VERY solid piece, would easily handle far more than my 300lb tongue weight.
As usual etrailer delivered exactly as promised.

Paul R.


its been hung on the back for a year. I never take it off.All kinds of weather, including Hurricane Matthew, Totally bulletproof.I have only one complaint, I bang my shins into it once in a whilewhen loading stuff in the back. But thats me, not the hitch.In a year its pulled 3 different boats, 2 different trailersand, in a pinch, anchor point for the chain while felling a tree.


Excellent and very personable service. Great products. Quick delivery



Awesome. Just what I wanted


Product itself seems very solid. But the packaging was really bad, similar to what other reviewers have described. It arrived in a cardboard box with barely any padding, and was already poking out on one corner. I guess I got lucky that it was still there, and didn't seem to be scuffed too badly.


This worked out perfectly. Had a flat bed put on one of our pickups, but the frame mounted hitch sat too far back from the new dock bumper. This ball mount moved it out just right so we didn't have to put a new receiver on the truck.

Jim H.


Holding up very well after a year.


Just what I needed to tow my boat

Good quality, fast delivery, good sales staff.


I love this trailer hitch for my truck because it allows freedom to put tailgate up and down when we do equestrian camping. It has been a great purchase.





I needed a longer hitch for a close-clearance trailer, but I still wanted full towing capacity. This ball mount fits the bill exactly! I'm very pleased. etrailer's service and delivery was impeccable as well!


This product allowed me to open my deck lid on the tow vehicle while hitched. I love it, was delivered promptly and is excellent quality, could not love it more!
Also increased capacity from 600/6000 to 1000/10000 lbs. while not needed I like the safety of the margin.

Skip G.


Could not be happier, great item.


I was looking for a high weight rated ball mount that would also accommodate my Rock Tamers. This fit the bill perfectly!


Excellent, heavy duty, well built. HOWEVER, the width of the lip where the ball mounts is over a 1/4" wider than standard. This means standard accessories such as stabilizers and backup guides will not be able to be used with this ball mount.

Garry R.


No change. I had to have a custom ball mount made because of the limitations of your product and the complete lack of anything else.


I ordered the Dexter nev-er-adjust electric trailer brake and bearing kit's for my Aliner. The installation was easy thanks to your instructional video's. The delivery was fast and everything fit perfectly. I took one twelve hundred mile trip and had no issues. I also ordered the Brophy ball mount because it was long enough for me to drop my tailgate without hitting the hitch crank.



Hard to find item. But extends trailer back enough to open tail gate without hitting jack crank. Was not available at Northern or other suppliers locally.



Product has worked out to exceed my expectations. In fact it makes my trailer easier to tow.

  • How Come Longer Ball Mounts Dont Cut Capacity Like Hitch Extenders
    Officially the ball mount part # BM20 does not cut any of the hitch's capacity due to its length, but this is a very valid question. The biggest difference is the amount of movement a hitch extender introduces into the setup vs. a longer ball mount. While I can admit the rules of the hitch extender capacity are a bit fuzzy when you compare them to a longer ball mount that very well could be longer than the extender, but it's basically one of those things where a rule had to be made and...

  • Can All Ball Mounts Be Used in Both the Rise and Drop Positions
    Most ball mounts can be used in either the rise or drop position. Typically if only one orientation is recommended it will specifically say, "rise only", or "drop only." To pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount you will need to take a couple measurements. Check out the help article that I attached that covers this.

  • Longer Ball Mount Recommendation for Towing Trailer with Tailgate Down
    For situations like yours the best solution is a longer mount to get the extra length since the use of a hitch extender cuts the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. For example, check out the Brophy ball mount part # BM20 which has a drop of 2 inches and is 13-1/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole.

  • Does Using Long Brophy Ball Mount part # BM20 Cut Capacity of Hitch at all
    This is a very good question, but when you use a longer ball mount you do not cut the capacity of the hitch in half like what happens when you use a hitch extender. Reason being an extender adds quite a bit more length and leverage plus quite a bit more movement.

  • What Would Cause Front Axle Trailer Tires to Wear Out On the Insides but not the Rear
    Is your trailer sitting level? It sounds to me like it is sitting with the nose too high and is putting more strain on the rear axle's tires. I attached a help article that details how to pick out a ball mount to allow your trailer to sit as level as possible.

  • Extra Long Ball Mount to Allow for Clearance of Canoes on a Trailer
    Using the 13-1/4 inch ball mount, part # BM20, is obviously the easier solution however it may not give you enough room. You're in need of at least 2 feet just to get the canoes on the trailer and that doesn't even count additional clearance for turning. If the trailer is fabricated in such a way as to raise the canoes and they can extend over the trailer hitch (such as over the bed of a pick up truck) then this might work for you. If that isn't feasible then extending the trailer's...

  • Distance from the Pin Hole to Bottom Portion of the Ball Mount Platform
    I pulled a Brophy Ball Mounts # BM20 from our warehouse and measured the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest portion of the ball platform in the rise position on the bottom of the ball mount and found it to be 9-3/4 inches. Check out the picture I attached.

  • How to Gain Clearance Between Vehicle and Trailer Load
    There isn't a defined amount of distance you need to have between your tow vehicle and the kayaks on your trailer. You'll have the most issue while turning so I recommend testing to see how well they work in an empty parking lot or somewhere like that. To give yourself more clearance you can use a longer ball mount. The Brophy # BM20 measures 13-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. This will help keep the kayaks further from you SUV to help...

  • Why Do Longer Ball Mounts Not Cut Hitch Capacity but Hitch Extenders Do
    You are correct. I know it seems somewhat conter-intuitive, but an extended ball mount does not cut the capacity of the vehicle hitch yet a hitch extender does do that. Reason being the hitch extenders are typically much longer than the longer ball mounts and they have quite a bit more movement due to the two connection points. Those being the extender to the hitch, and the extender to the ball mount. The fixed ball mount # BM20 is longer at 13-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin...

  • Can Ball Mounts be Used in Rise or Drop Position
    For our ball mounts like the part # BM20 you can use it in the drop position and get a 2 inch drop or in the rise position and have a 3/4 inch rise. Nearly every single ball mount we have can be used in either position. I attached a link to a page that has all of our ball mounts.

  • Recommendation for Getting Further Length out of a Ball Mount

  • Will Extra Long Ball Mount Reduce Towing or Tongue Weight Capacity
    The Brophy # BM20 ball mount will not reduce your vehicle's towing capacity like an adapter or extender will. The ball mount's max towing capacity is 10,000 pounds and its max tongue weight is 1,000 pounds. You should check the capacity of your hitch and your 2005 Jeep Liberty for their max capacities because the lowest rated component will be what determines how much you can tow.

  • Does Using Longer Ball Mount Reduce Hitch Weight Capacity
    Longer ball mounts like the part # BM20 that you referenced are a great way to add clearance at the rear of the tow vehicle like you are looking for without diminishing towing capacity. So, you can use this ball mount and not have to worry about losing any capacity. It's when you use a hitch adapter/extender that causes the capacity to be reduced.
