Video Transcript for Tow Ready Hitch Ball - Pintle Hitch Ball - 63052 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 63052. This is the Tow Ready Pintle Hitch Ball with the two and five sixteenth inch diameter. It's going to have a capacity of fourteen thousand pounds. If we take a measurement of the shank diameter real quick that's going to give us a measurement of one and one eighth of an inch. The shank length, measuring form the bottom of the shoulder to the end of the thread-in portions, we're going to measure two and one quarter of an inch. If we measure from the bottom of the shoulder to the top of the hitch ball, that's going to give us a measurement of about two and three quarters of an inch. Now a pintle hitch ball cannot be used on a standard ball mount.

The main difference between a pintle hitch ball and a standard hitch ball is the shank diameter. Pintle hitch balls are typically going to have a larger shank diameter than standard hitch balls. It is not safe to modify a ball mount to accept the larger diameter shank of a pintle ball. See here that it has the wrench flats on the side, that way you can easily get it tightened down. With this part number you're going to get the actual pintle hitch ball and you're going to get the lock-nut. It just goes on the thread-in portion there and then you can tighten it down to specifications.

That's going to do it for today's review of part number 63052. This is the Tow Ready Pintle Hitch Ball with the two and five sixteenth inch diameter.

Pintle Hitch Ball with 2-5/16" Diameter, 14,000 lb GTW - Chrome - 63052

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (141 Customer Reviews)


Six stars. If I ever start an internet business, I will pay these guys (gurus) to teach me how they do it. Always correct parts. Always have what I need. Even stuff I didn't think I could find. Shipping times promised, then received in half the time. I have an order waiting for me to complete, but can't spend the money yet. But going to order some lights (too many to choose from) and connectors, and other things like a SNAP RING. Who carries 2.25 inch snap rings? Oh, review ball? It's great. Shipped as advertised. Fits my trailer and hitch. What else can you say about a ball?

i ordered a pintle hitch ball from E Trailer its a very well-made product and fits well too they shipped fast and they were very helpful when i spoke to them


I've towed trailers every bit of 14,000 lbs, wrapped chains and shackles around it with tow straps and abused this thing for a year now and it doesn't care. Great product and fits perfect on my pintle hitch!


Fits my buyers hitch perfectly!


This is our 2nd purchase of a 2 5/16" Pintle Hitch Ball from Etrailer. The company has a good website which provides a lot of info to get the right item the 1st time. The ball being rated @ 7 tons makes for safer handling of a couple of specialized police trailers (a 5 ton Counter Terrorism HQ trailer & a 6 ton ICX Skywatch tactical surveillance trailer). This rated ball capacity is one of the highest available and @ a fair price. Drive safe.


I recently purchased a hitch ball from etrailer. The 2 5/16 inch ball required a 1 1/8 inch shaft which was hard to find locally. etrailer had the exact trailer ball size that I required and arrived on the expected delivery date.


Great replacement ball for my pintle hitch! Fits perfectly! Very heavy duty at 14k!

It’s been a very high quality product! After using it for almost a year several times a week, the chrome finish on the ball has barely worn off. I would highly recommend!

I was changing my Draw Tite Pintle Hitch from a 2" ball to a 2 5/16" ball and this product fit perfectly for the application. Seems to be a good quality 14,000 pound ball. The shipping was fast and the website was easy to use except I would have liked to see the shipping cost and tax estimated a little earlier in the process. I would use again since I don't have a trailer dealer near by.


hard to find part and you had it... thank you.
delivery was the fastest. less than 48 hrs, wow!!!
1 1/8 shank hitch ball in 2 5/16 at 14000 lbs is very hard to find, and you saved me from having to buy a new pintle. but when I do it will be from
great to deal with.............


Great product. Only company that had the 1 1/8 shaft without having to buy pintle


ETrailer was my last hope in finding this odd size hitch ball. They had it at a fair price and sent it out on the same day. I received it 3 Days Later via UPS. It was exactly the ball I needed. Excellent product and customer service. Thank you.


My Hitch & hitch ball arrived yesterday and is exactly what I thought it would be. The quality is very good and everything was packed well.
I will definitely go to E-Trailer again if I need anything else for my new travel trailer.

The people I e-mailed and talked to where all knowledgeable and very helpful. They even expidited my shipping so I got the package a day sooner.


The hitch ball with a 1-1/8" shank was not available anywhere in town. Etrailer had it in stock. The price was reasonable, the delivery was quick, and the quality is good.
This was my third purchase from etrailer and I have been very pleased each time.


I was updating an old hitch and this is the only place I could find this size ball (2 5/16) with a 1 1/8" shank. Thank you.


Google searched 1-1/8" diameter shank with a 2-5/16" ball; etrailer was top of the results.


Works as it should, shipped to the house quick. I buy alot of my trailer needs and accessories from etrailer. Good buying experiences every time.


Shipping status was available as needed and it was delivered on-time. George J at sent several e-mails to keep me posted on the status of my order. It fits and does exactly what I wanted and what was advertised. Perfect.


perfect fit....thank you


Was happy with product received and at a fair price. Did not give the 5th star due to: product was not shipped for days after order was placed. Could have been due to the order was placed close to Christmas,(giving benefit to the doubt).


was the right product


The hitch ball i purchased was a perfect fit shipping was fast great place to get all your trailer needs




Perfect match pintle replacement ball. Fast delivery Thanks etrailer


I was glad to find the right shank size hitch ball in stock
and prompt shipping.

See what our Experts say about this Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball

  • Can a Pintle Hitch Ball be Used on Standard Ball Mount
    Pintle hitch balls such as the Tow Ready # 63052 have a ball size that matches the standard type of hitch ball but the size of the shank is larger on a pintle. Standard balls typically use a shank with a diameter of 3/4-inches or 1-inch while a pintle ball shank is 1-1/8 inches in diameter. It is not safe to modify a ball mount to accept the larger diameter shank of a pintle ball. For reference I have linked you to our main page for hitch balls of all types.

  • How Much Torque Needs To Be Applied to the Pintle Hitch Ball with 2-5/16" Diameter
    The Pintle Hitch Ball with 2-5/16" Diameter part # 63052 has a 1-1/8" diameter shank so the nut will need to be torqued to around 350 ft lbs.

  • What Size Is The Nut Included With 2-5/16" Pintle Hitch Ball 63052?
    Thanks for your business! I reached out to my contact at Tow-Ready and the 2-5/16" Pintle Hitch Ball # 63052 you purchased does indeed use a 1-5/8" nut, so you are correct that you will need a 1-5/8" socket. I included a video of the # 63052 for you to take a look at.

  • 2-5/16 Inch Ball for a Curt Pintle Hitch
    The ball part of hitch ball # 19286 is a little more than 3 inches tall so it would not work for you. You need ball # 63052. Provided the shank diameter you need is 1-1/8 inches, it does have the 2-3/4 inch height for the ball portion. Or for a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank use ball # 63019.

  • Recommended 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball for Tow Ready Pintle Hitch
    The Tow Ready 2-5/16 Inch Pintle Hitch Ball # 63052 referenced in your question features the same 1-1/8 inch shank diameter as your existing Pintle Hitch Ball # TR63051, so it will work great as a replacement. This hitch ball also has a shank length of 2-1/4 inches and a weight capacity of 14,000 pounds. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also check out.

  • Fitment of 2-5/16 Inch Coupler on a 2 Inch Pintle Hitch
    It is not recommended to use a larger coupler on a smaller ball size even if it latches. The coupler can come ajar because it will not be snug enough to the ball to overcome the force created when impacting road bumps. I would suggest getting a pintle hook combo with a 2-5/16 inch ball like # C48200 or replacing the ball on your current setup. You would just want to replace it with a 2-5/16 inch ball that has the proper hole diameter, which is 1-1/8 inches # 63052 on the pintle # TR63011...

  • What is a Pintle Hitch
    A pintle hitch is primarily used in heavy duty towing situations. The hitch itself resembles a hook that can be closed around the lunette ring that is mounted on the trailer. Part # 63014 is a good example of a pintle hook. If you look at part # 63022, you can see what the lunette ring looks like. Combination pintles are available, like part # TR63042. This item can accommodate either a standard coupler or a lunette ring. The pintle/lunette combination is typically used on construction...
