Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 63840 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at a 2-5/16" hitch ball from Draw-Tite. This hitch ball installs onto a ball mount and provides a connection point for your trailer's coupler. It's made from a durable, cold-forged steel construction with corrosion resistant chrome finishing. It does come with the lock washer and the nut, so all that's included. The fine thread design provides a very tight, strong grip. The wrench flats make it easy to hold the ball in place while tightening the nut.

You can use a 2" wrench here at the flats. Again, the ball diameter is 2-5/16". Weight capacity is engraved right here on the top of the ball, 20,000 pounds.When it comes to the shank, this shank has a diameter of 1-1/4". It has a length measurement of 2-3/4" long. This is designed to fit a drawbar thickness of 3/8" to 1" thick.

The nut is a 1-7/8" nut with a torque rating of 450 foot pounds. The product's covered with a limited lifetime warranty and when installing this, you would place this through the ball hole on the drawbar. Then, on the underside of the drawbar, you place on the split lock washer followed by the nut. Then, you can just go ahead and get everything hand tight. Then, you can use a socket and wrench to get everything tightened down to the proper torque ratings as specified in the instructions.That's going to do it for today's look at the 2-5/16" hitch ball from Draw-Tite..

Everything that I have ordered and received from has been spot on excellent, and has lasted so far great. My new tow ball is pulling 3000 lbs of trailer with 6000 lbs of Kubota and done well.


This item is great helps a lot while towing trailer


First of all, the products you find at etrailer are not your garden variety, home depot kind of fair. Much higher quality and grade/weight ratings. So to be able to get hard to find items and then by orderring at least 100$ worth of stuff also get it delivered free in 4 days, is awesome. The prices are incredible too.


Excellent product, just what the doctor ordered!


I ordered a Curt 2-1/2" (1/2" rise - 2"drop) forged ball mount and a matching Curt 2-5/16" ball from etrailer on Monday. They arrived today (2 days later!) at the campground where I am staying.

Like all Curt products, the quality looks great. Thank you etrailer! I could have saved over $250 had I called you guys first rather than listen to "experts" at local trailer stores when they told me what rise/drop I needed. I won't make that mistake again.



Everything is working great! Again, there are a lot of people out there who sell trailertow vehicle parts at premium prices. who simply dont know what they are doing. My wife and I are desperate to begin camping this year. Thank you etrailer!


I like this ball for its 20K capacity. I like to have a good margin of error on trailer balls. I also like this ball for the wrench flats compared to using a pipe wrench to hold the ball while tightening it on the hitch. The 2-¾ inch shank worked perfect for the heavy receiver hitch I installed the ball on.



Have been using the ball for a year with zero worries about failure. Great product.


It is heavy and well made and will be used on a Blue Ox Sway Pro weight distribution hitch. Having the flat spots for a wrench on the base of the ball, is almost mandatory for torquing the nut to the proper spec.

Sorry for the delay responding, weve been out of town camping for the last 4 days. Im still happy with the products mentioned in the email


Looks good
just need to install


Very good quality product and technical support. When I called, they had me give all the measurements for the trailer hitch height and other dimensions. This allowed me to purchase the correct drop for the hitch. It works perfectly and tows our 14,000lb rated trailer with ease.
I would not have know all that information, being a woman. But then again, I see plenty of men towing with the wrong hitch because the trailer is out of level.


Seems like a super heavy duty hitch ball. Per instructions, requires 450 ft-lbs on nut, wow! Good luck meeting this requirement if you don't have a 3/4" torque wrench capable of applying this much torque. The nut on my hitch ball is buried deep inside the equalizer hitch. Luckily I already had a 1-3/4" socket and the correct 3/4" drive torque wrench along with a 2 foot long pipe wrench to hold the flats on the ball side. Things to think about before purchasing this hitch ball.


It is what I needed for my new hitch. I will be be installing it today on my hitch head. Waiting for my new trailer. Should be here soon.



The ball has been great. Have been very happy with it.


This is the strongest part of our Reese sway bar installation kit. the sway bars and the drop hitch are both limited to fifteen hundred pounds tongue weight and 15000 pounds trailer weight.


My trailer weight is approx 16,000 lb. No problems what so ever with this ball. And, the chrome finish is taking the abuse very well. Highly recommend this product.

Still no chrome flaking off. Seems to handle the load very well.


This is a beefy ball hitch, the nut of of which will require a 'thin wall' socket to allow clearance between the adjacent structure of the #FA94-00-0600 weight distribution hitch when tightening.


Not a lot to say about a hitch ball. This one is especially nice because the ball end has squared off sides for wrench tightening. So many of these are round balls mounted on a round stem. First thing you do is scratch them up with a giant channel lock. Not this one!


I ordered the Blue OX BXW1500. Installation was easy, I will be testing it next week for the first time. etrailer's customer service was wonderful. I worked with Sarah, she was a wonderful help. After ordering the hitch, I found it for a lower price. etrailer refunded the difference plus another 10% of the difference with no questions asked. I highly recommend etrailer for all your camping needs.



The folks at were very helpful and professional in assisting me obtain an alternative to my initial order which was on back order until December due to the Covid-19 virus. I initially ordered the Curt Rebellion XD Shock-Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 6-1/4" Drop - 15K with a 2" and a 2 5/16" stainless steel balls. Due to their diligence I was able to learn of the backorder status immediately. Consequently, they were able to provide a work around (chrome balls as opposed to stainless steel). While their dedication facilitated on-time delivery. I not only recommend them, but I will definitely shop with them again.


I needed a 2 1/2" drop hitch for my new truck. I got on etrailer, found exactly what I needed. They explained how to measure for the correct drop, which made it easy. Once I located the hitch, I found the correct ball, and a bolt-lock, and was done. It all shipped with free shipping, arrived in one box a few days later. Everything was there, and it was all correct. This was my 3rd time ordering from etrailer. All 3 experiences have been great. Will definitely order from etrailer again. Thanks etrailer


As always when ordering from e-trailer my tow ready ball and hitch arrived promptly. Parts are perfect rugged strong no issues and I pull 13,000 enclosed trailer. I would recommend this item for purchase.


Has held up perfectly. Great product


Purchased a weight distribution kit and it was shipped and delivered within a couple days. Customer Service was excellent and their products are of good quality. I really like their website as they carry a lot of useful products. I have and will continue to recommend etrailer.


Rated 20,000 lbs is awesome. The whole idea is knowing the trailer won't have a chance to end up on your front seat because the hitch ball broke during a fast stop.


It's a trailer ball with a decent weight rating. Works as it should. Used it on a Curt round bar weight distribution hitch.


etrailer provided great service to get my parts delivered quickly before my new RV arrives. Good price and quality hitch ball for my class 5 hitch upgrade.


Angela P. was very helpful in getting our order processed and shipped. The 2 5/16" 20K lbs GTW chrome hitch ball was exactly what we needed for our tow hitch project.
