Review of Draw-Tite Balls 5973

Today, we're going to review Part# 5973. This is the Draw-Tite 2-5/16" diameter Remov-a-Ball Gooseneck Hitch Ball. Now this part is a replacement Gooseneck Ball for the Remov-a-Ball Gooseneck trailer hitches made by Draw-Tite and Reese. Basically those gooseneck hitches would allow you to drop this ball into place and then a pin would go through the hole right in here to lock it into place. Then when you pull the handle, remove the pin, you can remove it from the hitch itself. This is the replacement ball. The ball diameter up here is 2-5/16".

The shank diameter right down here, we're going to measure, is right at 2-1/4". The shank height from the bottom to the very bottom of the ball here is going to be 2-3/4". And then just a few measurements, the diameter of the hole is 3-1/4" and the measurement from the center of that hole to the base at the bottom is 1-1/4, and from the center of that hole to the bottom to the ball is 1-1/2". This ball it has stamp on the top, has a 30,000 pound weight capacity and it is also stamped 2-5/17" diameter. That should do it for the review on Part# 5973, the Draw-Tite 2-5/16" Remov-a-Ball Gooseneck Hitch Ball.
