Buyers Products Pintle Hitch - Pintle Hook - Ball Combo - BP78FR Review


Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this Buyers Products combination pintle hook with two inch ball for 2 1/2 inch hitches. Has a 20,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now, this combination ball mount will let you haul up to 20,000 pounds with either the pintle hook or the chrome-plated two inch ball. The pintle hook and the hitch ball combo let's you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle.

The shank right back here is what'll slide into your vehicle's 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver. The pintle hook right here will connect to the lunette ring coupler, or the hitch ball will connect to a standard two inch ball coupler. Basically, what you could do is you just open this pin and clip, and it is tethered so you don't lose it. And then you just raise up on this handle. And that'll let you lift up on the pintle hook.

And you can pull it all the way back and it'll lock in the open position. So right now, if you want, you can tow with the hitch ball onto a trailer, a two inch ball coupler on your trailer. If you're gonna tow a lunette ring, a lunette ring would be a round ring on your trailer that would drop over the ball. And then once it drops over, to hold it into place, you just push down the pintle hook and that'll hold it into place. And then run your pin and clip through there to lock it, so that it'll stay in place, won't get released.

Now, this uses a two inch size ball. It is interchangeable with a different size if you want. It can be swapped out to accommodate different size couplers. They offer a 2 5/16 diameter ball. And again, it's not included, but we do sell it separately on our website.

Again, what's nice is, as we showed you, this spring-loaded arm right up here. You can see this helps to secure the lunette ring coupler in place. This part is a forged steel construction. It's very strong and durable. You can see it has a nice black powder coat finish, and then a chrome plating on the hitch ball and that'll help resist rust and corrosion. And again, you just close it like that. Run your pin through there. Clip it and you're all ready to go. Now, the hitch pin hole back here, it does require a hitch pin and clip to hold this into your hitch receiver. Now, again, that's not included. We do sell it separately. It's part number 337HP6256WC. And it is listed on this product page as a related product. Again, the application for this, 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch receivers. Ball size again is two inch diameter. Maximum gross towing weight capacity, and it is stamped on the label here, 20,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight is 3,000 pounds. And the last thing I wanna do is give you a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball. So, if we take our ruler, we go to the center of the hitch ball and we go to the hitch pin hole is 11 1/2 inches. But that should do it for the review on this Buyers Products combination pintle hook with two inch ball for 2 1/2 inch hitches and a 20,000 pound gross towing weight capacity..
