Brophy Pintle Hitch - Pintle Hook - BR27FR Review


Jeff Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. 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..
