Can a Pintle Hitch Ball be Used on Standard Ball Mount  


Will a pintle hitch ball work as a normal ball on a ball mount, or is there some difference that Im not seeing?


Expert Reply:

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.
