Video Transcript for Draw-Tite 2-5/16 inch Chrome Hitch Ball Review

Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Draw-Tite trailer hitch ball. So with the hitch balls, one, we wanna make sure it's gonna work with our trailer. So look on your coupler and it's usually gonna tell you what size it is. So this one is 2 5/16, it's made of steel, has a nice chrome finish to it. One thing I would definitely add to this is grab a little bit of grease. We have it here at etrailer.

It's just gonna keep this thing from heating up and also starting to chip away at everything. So we want to keep it looking as nice as we can for as long as we can, and that grease is gonna help. So just add that to your cart. Also, this is gonna have a capacity of 7,500 pounds. So you wanna match it up with the correct ball mount, as you can see, 7,500 pounds, might as well piece them all together so we're not limiting ourselves from the start.

But another thing to think about is you're gonna need to get a ball mount. So the shank of this is gonna have a diameter of one inch, so you wanna find a ball mount that's gonna have that diameter of one inch, and this is about 2 1/8 inches long, meaning the shank. And what you need to know about that is just make sure that the plate that it's mounted to is gonna be in between 3/8 of an inch to 7/8 of an inch thick. We just wanna make sure that they're gonna get along, but these two right here are literally perfect for each other. There really isn't a whole lot when it comes to hitch balls, pretty much, if you wanted to upgrade, you can get one that's just made out of a solid machine steel, or if you needed to get a rise out of your ball mount, but you don't feel like grabbing a new one, there are also some that are a little bit taller, so the ball will give you an extra inch or two rise.

So that's something to kind of think about, but at the end of the day, I don't really need anything fancy. I don't even see it. It just gets underneath our coupler and we bring our trailers on our way, this gets the job done. And I think it's gonna be a great choice for you. And that'll do it for a look at the Draw-Tite 2 5/16 inch trailer ball..

This ball fit perfectly on the hitch. The camper hooks up to it very easily.


Easy to order , great product, fast shipping!
have ordered several time and always the same great service


Fast shipping! Exactly what I needed. Thank you! The new extended receiver and hitch ball are perfect!

by: has the best customer service I have had the pleasure to work with in a very long time. Lets face it, everyone makes mistakes, but how you deal with those mistakes is what makes the difference. I have dealt with companies that did not take responsibility for their mistakes and it wound up costing me time and money. etrailer on the other hand quickly admitted their mistake and worked to correct the error with as little impact to me, the customer, as possible. I had a specific problem I was trying to address and I had been on several different sites looking for a solution. I was not finding what I needed. I saw some thing that may have worked for me on the etrailer site, but I needed more information then was available on their web site. So I called and got a Customer Service rep named Mike almost immediately. Mike took his time and answered my questions, and when it looked like the item I was looking at would not work for me, he looked though their inventory and found the exact item I needed to solve my problem. When I looked up the part # on the web, to view the part and see if it was what I was looking for, I found it was well documented and even had the one dimension that I needed to verify whether or not it would work for me, when most other sites did not provide that information. It was a great experience and I finally found what I needed. Thanks Mike! Then when my part arrived, I was impressed with the packaging. This heavy metal stuff was packaged better then a lot of fragile stuff I have received from other companies. I opened the package I found they had accidentally shipped one wrong part. The part number on the part did not match my order but it was basically the same part, but a slightly different size for the shank ( I can see where this would have been an easy mistake to make). I called and again had a great experience with their customer service (Katie). She answered the phone quickly and politely and when I explained that I got the wrong part, she apologized for the error and offered to make it right. They would send the correct part along with a prepaid label to return the wrong one. I am very pleased with all my dealings with etrailer and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. The ball mount and ball I got solved my problem by providing something I was not able to locate elsewhere, and the prices were good as well.

I am very satisfied with my purchases. They continue to perform as needed.

I was so impressed with how easy it was to make the purchase of my trailer hitch and wiring kit, and it was so much cheaper than my local trailer hitch people were charging. The YouTube videos made the attachment process much easier. Because I was nervous about whether or not I was ordering all the right parts online, I called eTrailer, and a nice person went through my order with me. Turns out the ball I bought was 2" and I should have bought a 1-7/8 ball. That was really my fault, but I wish the sales clerk had mentioned I needed to check that. Still, for an absolute novice at this kind of stuff, the entire experience was great, and I can wholeheartedly recommend eTrailer to any other novices out there who want to add a hitch to their vehicles!


My trailer has cut through some of the chrome but the ball is holding up very well. We do not grease this one as we have with some in the past due to pulling it out and carrying it around a lot as we switch out sizes of hitches in the receiver for different trailers. Using a 10K hydraulic trailer on this ball and there are no signs of real wear on the ball itself.


Recommendation by etrailer was perfect.
to install
Trailer pulls with no sway, wandering
Or porpoising.

Take the recommendation and go with it.
They know what they are doing.

I recently ordered a new Curt receiver hitch, ball, and a 4 inch drop receiver to put on a 2001 Gmc Sierra 1500. The truck had an old hitch on it for the last 10 years and couldn`t even get the receiver out. It had a closed end which always got rusted up so I went for a new receiver hitch. The worst part was getting the old hitch off. The new one bolted right up perfectly and shipping was a day earlier than expected. Great company, great service, great price, need I say anymore. If you need trailer hitch parts this is the place to go.


I just bought a new trailer that is 7 feet longer than my last and heavier and I now have a truck instead of an SUV so I needed to get a new weight distribution hinge with sway control. etrailer had all the best brands at the best price and delivery was fast. Unfortunately that's all I can comment on so far. I'm not picking up the new trailer till mid April, so I can't comment on how well it works or show pictures. I'll update later.


After purchasing a trailer hitch for my Nissan Xterra, I found finding the right ball at local shops difficult. I returned to etrailer's site, found the balls and hitch pin I needed, and received everything in just five days.


Perfect fit easy to jnstall


Exactly what it says on the tin. Started rusting after use where the chrome rubbed off, but that's what you have to expect with plated wear surfaces.


Works as designed.

Continues to work well. No problems at all.
Robert - 12/20/2021


Worked great just what I needed to pull my big trailer.


when I needed to supply my Tow Trucks with hitch balls I turned to etrailer because locally I could not get this price and the amount I needed in a timely fashion.


Well made and the finish is very nice. The threads are smooth and there are wrench flats on the ball side, makes tightening the nut easier. It should be noted that the load rating on this one is 7500 lbs, due to the one inch shank. A good value at Etrailer.


Ordering on line was a breeze -- everything was explained in the descriptions and the photos were clear. I received the product quickly and I appreciated the post-sale communication to let me know the status of my order. I was impressed by the smooth welds and the finish on both the ball and the mount. I expect they will give me many years of care-free use. Thanks!
PS No photos yet -- we pick up our trailer next week and I'll snap a few then and get one off to you!


Fit as described, put on my brand new drop hitch!


erika was awsome and my husband is very pleased with the made in the usa


Ok it’s a trailer ball, as described, does what it was supposed to
Fast shipping great customer service


etrailer is always our one stop shop for all of our trailer needs. They always have what we need at an affordable price.


Great products,great choice of products. Was delivered without a scratch,clean, and timely. I was notified by telephone that something I ordered was not in stock but would ship as soon as it came in stock and actually arrived sooner than I expected. Overall great and happy with the experience.


Best prices, best products, I'm more than pleased with the site and the whole transaction.I have been buying from Etrailer for year great service.
