Video Transcript for Review of Brophy Pintle Hitch - Pintle Hook - BR27FR

Jeff Hello everybody, this is Jeff at Today, we're gonna take a look at this Brophy pintle hook for 2-1/2 inch hitches. Has a 36,000 pound weight capacity. Now this pintle hook, here, will provide a nice attachment point for your trailer that's equipped with a lunette ring coupler, and a lunette ring couplers are normally found on heavy duty trailers, like construction trailers, that need a secure connection on uneven terrain, but still need to allow for more movement at the attachment point than your standard ball hitches. This was designed to fit lunette ring couplers that have an inner ring diameter of 2-1/2 inches. So, basically, your lunette ring would just, pretty much, be like a round donut shape, and the inner portion has to be a diameter of at least 2-1/2 inches.

And then what you will do is the way you open this up is you just remove the pin and the clip, lift up on this handle, right here, and to raise up the top portion, it'll hold it open. And then your lunette ring, that'll be on your trailer, will just drop down on the hook, like that, push that top down and it'll lock it into place. And then to secure it, run your pin back through, oops, run your pin all the way through and then clip it, and it'll lock it into place, keep it from opening. And if you notice, the pin and clip, here, is tethered to the hook so you won't lose it. Now this is a nice forged steel construction, it's very strong and durable.

You can see it has a nice black powder coat finish over the whole hook, resists rust and corrosion. And right back here is the hitch pin hole. Now this does not come with a hitch pin, or a pin and clip, or a hitch lock, those we do sell separately on our website, and it does have a hitch pin hole of 5/8 inch diameter size, so if you already have a hitch pin and clip, or hitch lock with that size it should work on here. If not, we do sell them separately. Application, again, this is designed to slide into a 2-1/2 inch by 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver.

Gross towing weight capacity on this, 36,000 pounds. Tongue weight capacity of 3000 pounds. And the last thing I wanna do is just give you some dimensions on this. We're gonna do the overall length and then we'll measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the front. So overall, it's gonna be right at 14-3/4 inches overall length, and if we go from the center of the hitch pin hole to the very front it's right at 12 inches long.

But again, just to show you how this operates, remove the pin and the clip, lift up on your handle, there, open it up and you're ready to hook up. After it's hooked up just push down on it, take your pin, slide it all the way through and then clip it and you're all ready to go. But that should do it for the review on the Brophy pintle hook for 2-1/2 inch hitches with the 36,000 pound weight capacity..

Forged steel pintle hook provides a strong and durable attachment point for your trailer equipped with a lunette ring coupler. Black powder coat finish resists rust and corrosion.


I do like the strength of the product. The flaws were the actual bolt on the top piece broke off holding the locking pin first week (allen key bolt). I also have to spray or grease the top piece that opens and closes and the rain rusts the joint quickly and is almost impossible to lift up by hand. I would look to purchase another product here since the price is right, but am not happy with the day to day use of this hitch at all. I do not have a picture at the moment, but if I can, I will show some of the issues. Thanks.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. I recommend keeping a can of rust resistant touch up paint to touch up the pintle hook from time to time. I reached out to the manufacturer who advised that keeping it oiled after each use would also help to increase the longevity.


We have used these hitches for a year now and they are definitely the way to go!! We use ours daily hauling equipment and haven't had any problem the best part is you don't have to fight any sleeves. I would recommend these to anyone!


Hitch was delivered very fast. Great quality and staff was extremely nice with emails updating me on status of order and any help I may need. Thank you etrailer!


Outstanding product. A bit overkill for my 16,000 lb trailer but with past experiences I'll leave the ball hitches to the amateur's.


Very solid, open and locks close flawlessly. Best Pintle hitch I have come across.


Really impressed with how fast shipping was. Product seems great too


This is a great hitch to fit our new Chevy that has the correct weight rating to pull our trailer. It is hard to find a hitch with this rating that is a slide in receiver at this price. Great buy very happy with this purchase.


Great attention to details of order


Absolutely great people to do business with easy to order from great customer service.


Nice product, Fast Delivery


horrible haven't even owned it long and it won't open or close. Don't buy

Good news! This is still under warranty. We will send you the warranty information via email.


Great product and fits perfectly on the GMC 5500 for pulling heavy loads


Great product and service


This Pintle Hook is really stout! Extremely heavy duty. The hook latch opens and closes easily with an integrated latch and a secondary pin for safety. This Pintle Hook works very well, and I have no concerns. I believe it'll serve me well for the rest of my natural life. I really like it!


Great service


Only 2 1/2 hitch that can handle 36,000 lbs!


This 36,000 lb. pintle hitch is an extremely well made American Product. The latch is very smooth and easy to open, the Powder Coating they applied to the hitch is very good and will preserve the hitch for a long time. To my surprise when I received the pintle hitch it is stamped right into the casting 20 Ton. Very well made and rugged hitch. The product review video was very helpful and describes this pintle hitch perfectly. Also I want to thank Courtney B. for her help when I called in with a couple of questions I had in comparing this hitch with another one that is offered, while on the phone, Courtney placed my order and in less than two days I received my pintle hitch, and I am extremely pleased with it. I will be towing a 20 ton rated trailer with a 16,000 lb. excavator behind my Chevy Silverado 3500 Heavy Duty Diesel that comes with a
2 1/2 inch receiver. I highly recommend this hitch if you want one that is well made and very rugged.


Great product very heavy duty.
slightly shorter (bearing point of pintle to pin hole) than the similar product made by curt mfg. this was just enough of a difference where it no longer Tripped my backup sensors on my 2020 ram 3500. the safety pin not only locks the pintle closed, but will also lock it in the open position as well which it a great feature. Only downside is the chain for safety pin is a tad short which isn’t a big deal.


Great product great price


Nice hitch.


This is the 2nd time I have ordered from etrailer..... never shipping and what I ordered I received every time.. always a good product and willing to help with questions and answers.. thank you!!!!!


This beefy hitch was perfect for attaching my low profile dump trailer to my f350.


I was looking for an affordable pintle hitch that would allow me to pull a heavy load safely. This hitch seems to be built well (weighs 22 lbs), without the high pricetag you get from other big name hitch brands. Great hitch

the 15 ton bolt on pintle plus the adjustable 10 ton Curt trailer ball mounted on my custom made trailer hitch


Seems great. I wish it were US made but at least its not China! (Taiwan) Very solid build feel.
