Video Transcript for Review of Shocker Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - HD Air Hitch Drop 2-5/16" Ball Mount - SHK42VR

Hi everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today, we're taking a look at this Shocker HD Air receiver hitch with drop ball mount and a 2 5/16 inch ball for a two inch hitch receiver and a gross towing capacity of 16,000 pounds. Now, this heavy-duty, shock absorbing receiver hitch provides superior comfort while towing by reducing road shock and chucking using air bag and bumper stop technologies. As you can see here, this hitch features an industrial strength air bag and these cushioned bump stops here at the top that are going to dampen chucking and road shock. This hooks your trailer to your tow vehicle with this included drop mount and 2 5/16 inch ball.

By the way, this ball is zinc plated to prevent rust and corrosion. And there are also two easy to remove large ring pins. They're gonna be easy to grasp, so there's not gonna be any more fumbling with small hitch pin heads. As you can see, I can easily fit up to four of my fingers in these rings. So, easy to grab, easy to hold onto.

And also, there are going to be these large safety clips right here that's gonna make securing the clips and the pins very easy. Let me go ahead and just give you a demonstration of how easy this is. I'm gonna go ahead and remove these large clips. And it does make a difference having extra space there to get your finger through to pull those safety pins out. And then I'm gonna go ahead and remove these pins and just adjust this ball mount a little bit.

Line up my holes. This does have a drop range of 4 1/2 to 7 1/2 inches. So, let me go ahead and replace my clips. And now, we are secure. And the inside width of this channel is gonna be 3 3/4 inches across.

And the distance between these vertical adjustment holes, gonna be one inch in between each of those holes. Now, this is gonna also be compatible with the Shocker Hitch two inch ball, the sway bar mount raised ball mount, the clevis mount, the combination ball, the cushioned draw bar, and the standard draw bar. All those attachments are sold separately but can be found on the related products section of this product page. Now, this air hitch works like a teeter-totter with the air bag on one end and your trailer coupler on the other end. And as your trailer exerts force downward, the unit pivots and the air bag absorbs the energy. And when your trailer jerks backwards or pushes forward, these two cushioned bump stops reduce the force for a smoother ride. Now, this air bag is easily adjustable. There is an air valve here with an included tap. And for heavier loads, you would just add more air, and for lighter loads, you would just let some air out. On the opposite side, we have this zerk fitting that is going to allow very easy and simple maintenance for this pivot point. So, this will accept a grease gun, so you can keep that pivot point greased and maintained. This also is a grade 50 steel plate construction and a cold rolled steel shank to provide maximum durability. Again, the gross towing weight of this is gonna be 16,000 pounds. The tongue weight is 1,600 pounds. It is shot blasted and powder coated to prevent rust. So, this is a two inch. This will fit rather two inch trailer hitch receivers. And this hitch pin hole diameter is 5/8 of an inch. This does not come with pin and clips. So, that would be a separate purchase. However, I would recommend taking a look at the InfiniteRule locking pins for this Shocker Hitch ball mounts for the two inch and the 2 1/2 inch hitches. You will get three pins. One to secure your Shocker Hitch to your, the receiver hitch of your vehicle. And then two other pins to secure your attachments like this drop ball mount to the Shocker Hitch. You can find them on our website using item number IR39FR. Now, the distance between the first hitch pin hole to the center of the ball is gonna be 10 1/2 inches. And from the second hitch pin hole to the center of the ball is gonna be 11 1/2 inches. And the distance below the receiver tube is gonna be five inches. Now, just some additional installation tips. This does require a minimum of seven inches clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rearmost portion of your tow vehicle. And the receiver opening should be flush with the bumper or protruding from the rear of the vehicle for best fit. Finally, a two inch Shocker Air receiver will not fit a 2 1/2 inch hitch even with a reducer sleeve as trucks with a 2 1/2 inch hitch have deeper frames. A 2 1/2 inch Shocker Air receiver hitch will fit a three inch hitch with a reducer sleeve. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I hope it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..
