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 Receiver Hitch Combination Ball - SHK95VR

Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today we're taking a look at this Shocker HD Air Receiver Hitch with combination ball or 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 shocking using airbag and bumper stop technologies. This shock absorbing hitch features an industrial strength airbag and cushioned bump stops that dampen the chucking and road shock. And this hooks your trailer to your tow vehicle with this included combination ball mount.

Included with this are two, easy to remove, ball mount pins and these large rings, which I can easily fit four fingers in, are easy to grasp. So no more fumbling with small hitch pin heads. And these large safety clips make securing these pins very easy. Let me go ahead and remove these clips and pins and just show you how easy that is. These wide rings on these pins do fold over, so if you want to move them out of your way, they are rather tight, so just be aware of that.

So right now I am going to adjust this from the 2" ball to the 2-5/16" ball. Here, let let me go ahead and just line this up. And then I'm gonna go ahead and install the clips. There we go. Now this air hitch works like a teeter-totter with an airbag on one end and your trailer coupler on the other end.

And as your trailer exerts force downward, this unit pivots and the airbag is going to absorb the energy. When your trailer jerks backwards or pushes forward, the two cushions, the bump stops, are gonna reduce the force for a smoother ride. Now, the airbag is easily adjustable. There is an air valve right here that comes with a cap. For heavier loads, you would add more air.

And for lighter loads, you would let some air out. On the other side, there is a zerk-fitting that is going to allow for very easy maintenance of that pivot point. Now, this is a grade 50 steel plate construction and a cold-rolled steel shank, that's gonna provide you maximum durability. It's also shot blasted and powder coated to prevent rust and the balls are zinc plated. Now, again, this is going to fit 2" trailer hitch receivers. The ball sizes that are included is the 2-5/16" and the 2" and using the shocker hitch 2" ball, the gross towing weight is going to be 12,000 pounds and the tongue weight is going to be 1200 pounds. And using the shocker hitch 2-5/16" ball, the gross towing weight's gonna be 16,000 pounds. And the tongue weight is going to be 1600 pounds. The drop is gonna be 1 1/2" to 3 1/3". And the pin hole diameter is gonna be 5/8". Pin and clips are not included with this. And while we're talking about the pin hole, let me give you some measurements. I'm gonna begin with the first hole here to the center of the ball. Let me line that up here for you and get my hand out of the way. We're gonna be sitting right at 10 1/2" from that first pin hole to the center of the ball, then moving down to the second hole, we're gonna be sitting right at 11 1/2" to the center of the ball. And the distance between the vertical adjustment holes are gonna be sitting right at-- Line that up there. At an inch. And then the inside width of the channel, we're gonna be sitting at 3 3/4" wide. And then the distance below the receiver tube, it looks like it's going to be 5" from the bottom of the receiver tube. This is also compatible with the shocker hitch 2-5/16" ball, the 2" ball. The sway bar mount, the drop mount, the raised ball mount, the clevis mount, the pintle hook, the cushion drawbar and the standard drawbar. All of which are sold separately, but can be found on the related products section of this product page. Just some installation tips. This does require a minimum of 7" clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the front of your tow vehicle. And the receiver opening should be flush while the bumper, with the bumper rather, or protruding from the rear of the vehicle for best fit. Additionally, a 2" shocker air receiver will not fit a 2 1/2" hitch, even with a reducer sleeve, as trucks with a 2 1/2" hitch have deeper frames, And finally, a 2 1/2" shocker air receiver will fit a 3" hitch with a reducer sleeve. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..
