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.

One year later and still happy with product and support available from etrailer.com! I use this to tow a pop-up to/from track days with my Camaro.



by:

Hitch ball worked great for the hitch we put on our 2008 Pontiac vibe.



by:

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



by:

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.



by:

Was told this is the item I needed but incorrect. However etrailer did give me a full refund.



by:

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



by:

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



by:

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



by:

Very quick service. Professional. Everything is exactly as described.



by:

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.

by:

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).



by:

Easy ordering and fast delivery

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



by:

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!



by:

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



by:

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

works great.



by:

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.

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.

Fits great..easy to install!!



by:

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!



by:

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!



by:

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".



by:

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!



by:

Good peice of steel



by:

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).



by:

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.

  • Recommended Hitch for a 2023 Mazda 3 Sedan
    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch item # 24982 is confirmed to fit the sedan models only of the 2023 Mazda 3. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your Mazda with included hardware. This is a class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver. It has a 2,000 lbs towing capacity and a 200 lbs maximum tongue weight. If you are planning on towing you will also need a wiring harness item # 118808 and the Draw-Tite Drawbar item # 3593 and then for hitch balls item # 19258 for a 2 inch ball or item # 19256 for...

  • What Ball Mount is Needed For 15 Inch Hitch Height With Draw-Tite Receiver 24872 on 2014 Ford Focus?
    When we installed the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24872 on a 2014 Ford Focus Hatchback in our shop we found the receiver height to be 10-3/4" from the ground. The Draw-Tite Drawbar # 3593 gives you a 2-1/8" rise so that would only give you a height of 12-7/8". Instead you should use the Drawbar # 3594 with a 4" rise and the 1-7/8" Ball # 19256. This will give you a hitch height of 14-3/4" so you will only have 1/4" drop on the front of your trailer. You will also need...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2009 Honda Fit
    There are 2 hitches compatible with the Honda Fit. The first is the Class I Curt hitch # C11064. Class I hitches have a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver opening and a lesser weight capacity than hitches with a 2-inch receiver opening. I have included a link to an FAQ article on the hitch classes for you. Class I hitches will still allow you to attach 2-bike bike racks and do some light towing. The Curt hitch, # C11064, also requires the use of a stabilizing strap when used with bike racks so...

  • Towing Capacity and Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Honda Accord Coupe V6
    I looked up the towing capacity for your 2016 Honda Accord coupe with a V6 and it has a 1,000 lb trailer weight capacity. As long as the trailer you plan to tow weighs less than that you'd be fine. For a hitch the Curt part # C11496 is the way to go as it has more than enough capacity than you'd need. For a ball mount you'd want the part # 3593 and for hitch balls part # 19258 for a 2 inch ball or # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball.

  • How To Install a Trailer Hitch Ball to 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback Limited
    To attach a trailer hitch ball to your 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback Limited will require the installation of a trailer hitch to your vehicle. The only vehicles that would allow just a hitch ball to be installed without a hitch are vehicles that have a step bumper that have a hole in the bumper for the installation of the hitch ball. This bumper along with the vehicle it is on are designed to withstand the stress of towing a trailer with only the bumper. For a hitch to fit your Legacy Outback...

  • Comparing CURT Trailer Hitch and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for a 2011 Ford Fusion
    A 7/16 inch bolt and a 1/2 inch bolt will both have a much higher capacity than the hitch or vehicle frame rails. Since both installation instructions for CURT, # 11390, and Draw-Tite, # 24865, require fishwiring hardware through the frame rails, the slightly smaller Draw-Tite 7/16 inch bolts will be easier to fishwire into place. The other major difference is the CURT hitch does require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for any non-trailer load such as a bike rack or cargo carrier...

This is a class II hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver. It has a 3,500 lbs towing capacity and a 350 lbs maximum tongue weight.

  • Recommended Hitches for a 2014 Prius and a 2017 Mazda 6
    Since you're wanting to save some money I would recommend going with 1-1/4" hitches for both vehicles. This will allow you to use the same ball mount and the Yakima Rack an Roll Trailer item # Y08107 is well under both hitches capacities. The 2" hitches for both vehicles are pricey and you won't need them with your current set up. The installation process on the 2" hitches is also complicated and way more involved than the 1-1/4" options. For your 2014 Toyota Prius, I recommend the Draw-Tite...
