SHK45VR DIMENSIONAL DIAGRAM

A Solution for Rough Rides

Have you ever hit a bump while towing and had that road shock jostle and shake you all the way down to your bones? It's a common feeling. Most ball mounts are made almost completely of metal, so there's nothing to help soften the shock when you hit a bump. This results in a bumpy, jerky ride that not only takes a toll on you as you drive, but it beats up your equipment too, leading to premature wear and tear on both your truck and trailer.


Fortunately, the Shocker Hitch HD Air will change all that.


Air Bag and Bumper Stop Shock Absorption Technology

Shocker Hitch Air Bag

Using a built-in air bag and rubber cushions, the Shocker Hitch HD Air acts like a small suspension system between your truck and trailer. The air bag and bumpers help absorb road shock, creating a smoother, more comfortable ride while also protecting your truck and trailer from unnecessary wear and tear on the brakes, chassis, trailer frame, and suspensions.


Shocker Hitch Bumper Cushion

The body of the Shocker Hitch HD Air is designed to pivot back and forth on the shank, kind of like a seesaw or teeter totter, as the air bag, which sits directly beneath your truck's receiver, and the cushioned bumpers take turns absorbing the road shock.


Shocker Hitch Pivot

When you hit a bump and your trailer bounces, the unit pivots so that the air bag can isolate and absorb the energy. When your trailer jerks forward or backward, the 2 cushioned bumper stops help soften the force.


Customize Amount of Shock Absorption

Shocker Hitch Bumper Cushion

Using the easily accessible air valve on the side of the unit, you can adjust the air pressure in the Shocker Hitch Air's air bag to best accommodate your trailer's load. If you're hauling heavy-duty landscaping equipment, for example, you can add air to account for the increased capacity. Once the equipment is unloaded, simply release some air so that your underloaded trailer won't experience a stiff ride.


How to Air Up Shocker Hitch><br class=

Finding the right pressure for your setup is simple. Once you've hooked up your trailer and the tongue weight is pushing down on the hitch ball, there will be a gap between the top of the adjustable channel and bumper.


Shocker Hitch Air Bag PSI><br class=

Inflate the air bag until the bumper rests flush against the top of the hitch. Once the gap is gone, you'll know the air bag has the appropriate amount of air pressure for your load.


If you happen to get stuck in a situation where you're unable to inflate the bag, there's no need to worry; you can still tow your trailer. Without the inflated air bag, you won't get the full benefit of the Shocker Hitch HD Air, but you'll still get some built-in cushion with the bumper stops.


Adjustable Drop Hitch for Towing Different Trailers

How to Adjust Shocker Hitch Height

Adjusting the height of the hitch ball to accommodate for a different trailer takes almost no time at all. Just unclip the adjustment pins and grab the easy-to-grasp handles to remove them. Then slide the ball platform up or down to the desired position. You can also flip the platform depending on whether you need the 2" or 2-5/16" ball. Once you have the correct height and ball size, reinsert the pins and secure the clips, and fold back the handles so they're out of the way. Then you're ready to go.

Video Transcript for Review of Shocker Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - HD Air Hitch Sway Bar Combo Ball - SHK45VR

Hi everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today, we're taking a look at this Shocker HD Air receiver hitch with sway bar combo ball mount for two inch hitches. Now, this has a gross towing capacity of 16,000 pounds. And this heavy-duty shock absorbing receiver hitch is going to provide superior comfort while towing by reducing road shock and chucking using air bag and bumper stop technologies. Now, this hitch features, as you see here, an industrial strength air bag.

And on the top here, cushioned bump stops that's gonna dampen chucking and road shock. This is going to hook your trailer to your tow vehicle with this included combination hitch ball with these sway bar tabs. Now, the gross towing weight for the two inch ball is going to be 12,000 pounds, with a tongue weight of 1,200 pounds. Then when you are using the 2 5/16 inch ball, the gross towing weight is gonna be 16,000 pounds, and the tongue weight is going to be 1,600 pounds. These sway control tabs have 5/8 of an inch diameter holes that are going to accept your basic sway control arm bars and mini balls, which are sold separately.

These balls, and the tabs, and the whole ball platform is zinc plated to resist rust and corrosion. Now, included are two easy to remove pins. And as you can see, they have large rings here that are very easy to grab onto. I can easily put up to four fingers in these rings. So, there's not gonna be any more fumbling with small hitch pin heads.

And not only that, we also have large safety clips that's going to make securing the clips effortless. And I just kind of wanna give you an idea of just how easy this is to, to adjust and to remove these clips and these pins. So, I went ahead and removed our safety clips here. And then I'm gonna go ahead and just turn this around and just show you how easy it is to remove these pins. This does have a drop range of half an inch to 3 1/2 half inches.

So, I've removed my pins. And then you can just turn this to adjust it to the 2 5/16 inch ball. And then I'm just going to line it up here and put my pin in. And then turn this around and put in my clips. And again, with the large handles and then the larger safety clips, it just makes adjusting this really a breeze. So, get that clip in and we are secured. We've adjusted the height and the ball that we're using. Very easy to do. The inside channel is 3 3/4 inches across right here. And then the distance between these vertical adjustment holes are one inch in between each of the holes. Now, this is also going to be compatible with the Shocker Hitch 2 5/16 ball, the two inch ball, the drop mount, the standard ball mount, the clevis mount, the pintle hook, the cushioned draw bar, and the standard drawbar. All of which are sold separately but can be found under 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, this unit pivots and the air bag absorbs the energy. When your trailer jerks backwards or pushes forward, the two cushioned bump stops reduce the force for a smoother ride. Now, this air bag is easily adjustable. And as you can see here, there is an air valve here with the included cap. And for heavier loads, you would just add more air, and for lighter loads, you would just let some air out. And then on the other side of this hitch, there is a zerk fitting right here that will allow easy maintenance of the pivot point where you can just attach a grease gun there and put in more grease as needed. Now, this is a grade 50 steel plate construction and a cold rolled steel shank that's gonna give you maximum durability. And it's also shot blasted and powder coated to prevent rust. Again, this is going to fit a two inch trailer hitch receiver, and the hitch pin hole diameter is 5/8 of an inch. This does not come with a pin and clip. However, I would recommend taking a look at the InfiniteRule locking pins for Shocker Hitch ball mounts for two inch and 2 1/2 inch hitches. You will get three locking pins, not only to lock this to your hitch, but also to lock your accessories. You can find that on our website, item number IR39FR. The distance between the first hitch pin hole to the center of the ball is gonna be 10 1/2 inches. And then the distance between the second pin hole to the center of the ball is gonna be 11 1/2 inches. And then the distance below the receiver tube is gonna be five inches from the bottom of the receiver tube. Now, just some installation tips. This does require a seven inch, a minimum of seven inches of 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 the best fit. And 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. And a 2 1/2 inch Shocker Air receiver will fit a three inch hitch with a reducer sleeve. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

  • Recommended Sway Control When Towing a Travel Trailer Without a Weight Distribution Hitch
    I do find that the electric Tuson Asymmetric Sway Control # 335TSC-1000 to be the best route as once it is installed it is the easiest to use. It will not be as difficult to install since the main unit is mounted 5-10' behind the ball mount and you will be able to fish the wiring through the underbelly.
