How to Remove Ball from Pintle Hitch  


How do you take a pintle hitch ball but off mine won’t budge


Expert Reply:

It will depend on which pintle hitch you have. Some like the Curt # C45908 have removable trailer balls, some do not. If the trailer ball has a nut on the underside of the pintle, the ball should be removable. It it does not, the ball isn't removable. If the ball on your pintle is held on with a nut and lock washer, once you remove the nut you should be able to rap the end of the shank a few times with a dead blow hammer at which time the ball should come loose.
