Video Transcript for Draw-Tite 1-7/8 inch Chrome Hitch Ball Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at Draw-Tite's one and seven eighths inch hitch ball with a three quarter inch shank. This ball is designed to work with both Class I and Class II hitches. With a maximum towing capacity of 2000 pounds, that makes it perfect for our Class I trailer here that also accepts a one and seven eighths inch ball. We can just slide it down on there and it snaps in place keeping it nice and secure. This ball mount is going to be ideal for small utility trailers like this for if you just need to get some things moved around or maybe you're helping a buddy move and you just need to have some extra space. And it's also great for recreational activities like hauling around some dirt bikes or possibly some small jet skis or ATVs.

Our ball is constructed of a cold forged steel with a chrome plating to give it a nice appearance and also to protect it against corrosion.Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it mounted up onto your ball mount. Now that you got your ball, you are going to need a ball mount for it. You'll want to choose one with the appropriate drop that matches your trailer so you'll have a nice level towing experience. That'll just provide better tongue weight and transitioning of the weight onto your vehicle. We'll now need to take our ball, we're going to put it in our ball mount.

You'll want to choose if you want it in the drop or rise position. We're going to be placing ours in the rise position, so that way when it's in our trailer, it raises it up. Place the included lock washer on the back, followed by the nut. We'll then want to clamp our ball into our vice here. And then we can tighten it down to the specifications included with your ball.When you're ready to use the ball mount, you simply slide it into your one and a quarter inch receiver matching up the hole with the ball mount in the hole in the hitch.

We'll then take the included half inch hitch pin and clip to secure it to our receiver. And we're now ready to attach our trailer to it. And that completes our look at Draw-Tite's one and seven eighths inch hitch ball with a three quarter inch shank.

Fit great on 2020 Hyundai Sonata, had to make long cut in muffler heat shield, & panel on other side of trunk. Took about an hour to install & retrofit panels. Wiring the lights took a little longer, didn't want to mess up the interior. But with that said, this is my 4th hitch I've bought from this company. 2011 Camaro convertible, 2008 Cobalt, just don't stick your finger in a hole that is too small. LOL


just what i needed for my trailer-refuse to take garbage in my mustang -- easy to pull the trailer.


I was very suspicious how will it fit and suit Dodge Challenger. But when I received trailer hitch, and by they way it travelled across the planet to reach me, I was totally impressed with the quality, ease of installation and accessories which I ordered with it. I basically installed it myself with a help of a friend, it took about 30 minutes to fix it. It really saved me as I needed the trailer to transport my bike to the race track and I didn't want to change the car.
So the conclusion, I own it for more than a year and have zero issues or complaints about the hitch or accessories. I used to travel long and short distances and in average I use it every second week. You barely can notice it when you remove drawbar so it is very good solution.


Product is well made and works great for my Small Trailer towing.


I installed this on my 2015 Honda Accord for the purpose of pulling my small aluminum fishing boat and trailer. Works great!


The Hitch Ball with 1-7/8" diameter and short shank fit perfectly on the drawbar with 4" rise. I have included a picture to show how nicely it mounted to the car. Thanks for the fast service!


I ordered the parts on a Monday night and it arrived on Thursday which Is fast. The parts are excellent quality and the installation was just like the video described it. I am very impressed with my e trailer experience and will recommend them to anyone. Thank you etrailer.

Toyota threw me a curve ball with 2 metal support brackets installed where the trailer hitch should go. Apparently they did this in 2015, as they do not show up in 2014 videos - anyway, I removed these and that allowed access to 6 pre-installed nuts that the supplied hardware screwed right into. I also ordered the wiring kit which plugged in with no issues. I've already made 2 trips with my small utility trailer, plus plan to haul bikes with it, also. The hitch looks great (but a little dirty due to lots of rain brought in by Hurricane Harvey).


Good quality, fit right as it was supposed to onto the drawbar.


Had a great company install the hitch

It is good to know that the hitch is there when it is needed. All the components are still intacttight and I feel confident with the hitch


I order this with a hitch for my ford fusion to tow a small inflatable boat.

works great.


Fits great..easy to install!!


I ordered parts for trailer hitch and lights a year ago. My car guys installed it apparently with no problem. There was no problem with my order and the product has worked just fine. The hitch has been used to pull a trailer and to hold a bike rack. I am pleased! Thanks!


Fits great customers service outstanding buy from Etrailer


This is the second hitch I have purchased from etrailer and, again, it was a perfect fit. Everything I buy from here is exactly what they say it is and exactly what I was needing.

I will always recommend etrailer, they have never let me down.

Houston Texas area.



All is good. All products are performing as expected and wanted. As usual I am more than satisfied with every product I have purchased from you. I also suggest to others they buy from you asbI have always had good experiences.


I bought a tow bar, hitch and wiring harness. Everything fit like it was supposed to, but the draw bar would have been easier to install if the car was brand new (8 yrs old, pre-threaded holes in frame corroded) but I made it work and now I can tow my boat!


With the car I had this on (Mazda 3), this was not high enough to pull the trailer I needed without it scraping on the ground. Needed to make the hitch mount into a riser and it was still close to the ground so I purchased a taller ball.


It's a good ball. The plating wears out pretty quickly leaving a brass color underneath. Still no complaints though, it does what it's supposed to. I bought this to use since my hitch was a class II. Uhaul trailers and most ball receivers are made for either this or the larger ball so might as well just go with the 2".


This ball hitch was the most recent item I’ve purchased with GREAT SATISFACTION from etrailer- they have provided hitches, wiring harnesses and accessories quickly after each online purchase, 5 out of 5 stars and THANKS!


I have a 05 Honda Accord and not only was this the most affordable option it has been a very great hitch and ball set up. I use my Accord V^ car like a truck with a trailer to make home improvements on my house. This set up has been very dependable and sturdy for the job at hand. Thanks again etrailer for ease and access to great towing products. etrailer has been my "go to" for over 12 years now and I would never shop any where else !


Got my two orders, a trailer hitch, draw bar, pin and ball, didn't order all the 1st time. It was easy to find everything I needed on the site. The videos that showed how to install the hitch and wiring on my particular vehicle were to the point and easy to follow. at least one tip the guy gave, was to get yourself some extra zip ties, which I did and found it to be a great tip, (don't remember if he mentioned length, but I got some 8 or 10" and at a couple points it made it easier, It may have something to do with my age). Without the videos, I most likely wouldn't have tried to install any of it myself, it took me about 6 hours or so with breaks here and there but I am very satisfied. would add pictures but not at all tech savvy, have everything I need, just can't get them on there. Thanks all at etrailer for making something I put off for a long time, easy. Thanks again! R.R.


Ordered a ball hitch, hitch cover, draw bar, and hitch pin for a 1 1/4" receiver so I can use a utility trailer to haul my 7' dingy down to the shore. We have a hybrid vehicle so hauling is not recommended but the distance is less than a mile and the total weight is less than 300 lbs. I shopped in vain to find the right size for our receiver but then I found etrailer. Couldn't be more pleased with the prices, communication and delivery! 5 stars absolutely.


All equipment was delivered on time. Hitch, wiring harness, receiver and ball. Watched video's on installation of harness and hitch. Went down to my garage and installed both with the help of my girlfriend. Very satisfied with the products and the installation. etrailer supplied the goods and the knowledge. I am very happy that I went this route.


Got a very good price on a trailer hitch for my '95 Camry.
It was fairly simple to install (after watching etrailer.coms video).
I use it to haul around my little utility trailer (Harbor Freight) and my 12 ft kayak (BassPro).


works fine, holds boat trailer to hitch on the Prius, no problems.



still works fine, make of steel, what can go wrong

  • Can a Class II Ball be Used in a Class I Ball Mount
    Yes, if a ball is labeled as a Class II it can still fit a Class I ball mount. All that matters is that the shank on the ball is the right size for the ball mount's mounting hole. Ball # 19256 for example has a 3/4 inch diameter shank so it fits any ball mount with a 3/4 inch ball hole which is many Class I and II ball mounts. Please note that no matter what you always go by the lowest rated component in the system. So if the ball mount is rated for 2,000 pounds, the hitch for 3,000 but...

  • How to Pick Out Ball Mount for Truck Towing Small Trailer
    I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will first measure the height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch while on level ground. Next, you will measure the coupler height from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when the trailer is on level ground. Next, you will need to compute the difference. If the hitch height is...

  • How to Determine if Unmarked Trailer Coupler is for 2 inch or 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball
    If you have access to a 2 inch ball you should try fitting that into the coupler and see if it will latch on to it. That will be the best indicator. Based on what you said though it sounds like you have a 1-7/8 inch ball coupler as it fits into the coupler and only has a little bit of play.

  • Diameter of Inside of Nut on Draw-Tite 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball 19256
    The nut has straight outside edges, so I believe you are asking about the diameter of the circular inside of the nut that comes with 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball # 19256. The diameter of the nut of the hitch ball is 3/4 inches; I have added a link to a video review for you as well.

    Your owners manual is giving you two capacities with differences depending on how the truck is equipped. Your safest option would be to check with a Ram dealer to see what they recommend. Or you can use the GCWR in the door jamb. It's not always evident what a truck's max capacity is, even by reading the owner's manual, but if you look at the ratings sticker on the driver's side door jamb, you can get an accurate statement of the truck's towing abilities. On the sticker, look for the Gross...

  • Is There Difference Between 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch Ball
    The two sizes you mentioned are different balls. The larger size typically has higher capacities and fits couplers that are designed for it's size. The 2 inch size is typically seen in lighter duty applications. You have to match the correct size hitch ball with what the coupler is designed to fit. I attached a link to a page that has all of the hitch balls we carry as well.

  • Will the Draw-Tite 3594 Get Me Close to 16 of Rise if My Hitch is 11 1/2 Off the Ground?
    From the measurement you provided, the Draw-Tite Drawbar for 1-1/4" Hitches - 4" Rise - 10" Long - 2,000 lbs # 3594 will definitely get you as close to level as possible. The Draw-Tite 1-7/8" Hitch Ball # 19256 would then complete the set up.

    We have many different 1-7/8 inch diameter balls. The recommended 1-7/8 inch ball for ball mount # 3593 is # 19256. Any ball that has a 3/4 inch diameter shank will fit.

    There are different hitch ball shank lengths and diameters designed to fit different sized ball mounts. For the ball mount part # BM96 the recommended ball that has a 1-7/8 inch diameter would be the part # 19254 as it has a shank with the matching diameter and length needed.

  • Torque Specs for 1-7/8-Inch Hitch Balls with 3/4-Inch and 1-Inch Shanks
    The correct torque value for the nut on a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball depends on the diameter of the shank. Draw-Tite, who makes # 19256 and # 19260 lists the following torque specs: "During hitch ball installation, torque all 3/4" shank diameter balls to 160 ft. lbs, 1" shank diameter balls to 250 ft. lbs., and 1-1/4" shank diameter balls to 450 ft. lbs."

  • How Tight Should Trailer Coupler Be on Hitch Ball
    A little bit of play is acceptable, the coupler should be tight enough that the coupler won't come off the ball, but not so tight you can't close the latch. I typically tighten the coupler up until I feel a slight resistance when closing the coupler latch, then I'll back it off slightly from there. Reese sells a white lithium grease that's conveniently packaged for use on hitch balls, part # 58117.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Camry
    Both the Draw-Tite Hitches # 36540 and # 36514 will fit your 2014 Toyota Camry whether it is a hybrid or not. The two part numbers are the same hitch. Either would work well for you since they both will fit your vehicle. If you go with the # 36514 because you want the ball mount and the pin and clip you may also be interested in purchasing a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball part # 19256. I attached an install video for you to check out also.

  • Correct Hitch Ball for Class II Hitch on 2007 Subaru Forester
    You will need a trailer ball (the size of the ball will depend on the coupler size of the trailer you are wanting to tow) with a shank diameter of 3/4 inch. For the ballmount that comes with your hitch, I would recommend the either the 1-7/8 Inch Trailer Hitch Ball part # 19256 or for a 2 inch ball, part # 19258.

  • Trailer Coupler Will Not Release Hitch Ball Even After Lubrication
    I see you have tried the usual fixes for a coupler that won't release the hitch ball - moving the vehicle slightly to potentially release excess tension on the ball, lubrication with WD-40 and even a little brute force with the pry bar. You can also first make sure the trailer is supported, and then remove the hitch pin from the ball mount and move the truck forward. This will ensure there is little or no tension on the ball/coupler. This will also give you more room to work and free up...

    Although adapters are made for joining different size hitches and accessories, you cannot use one in your application.

Although many trailer rental companies use adjustable couplers on their trailers, it would not be a bad idea to give them a call and ask what size trailer ball you will need.

  • Drawbar for 2018 Subaru Forester With Factory Hitch
    The 2018 Subaru Forester OEM hitch is Class I, so you would only need a Class I compatible drawbar. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 3591, which has no drop and just a 5/8" rise. This drawbar comes with a pin and clip so the only thing you'd need is a compatible hitch ball. For a 2" ball you would want # 19258, and for a 1-7/8" hitch ball you would want # 19256. I have added a link to a video review of this drawbar for you to take a look at.

    The Draw-Tite # 36071 does not come with a ball mount but it does come with a hitch pin and clip to secure the drawbar to your trailer hitch. For a hitch ball you can use part # 19256 for a 1-7/8" hitch ball or part # 19258 for a 2" hitch ball. Their individual prices can be found on their product pages.
