Review of Draw-Tite Hitch Ball 63840


Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at a 2-5/16" hitch ball from Draw-Tite. This hitch ball installs onto a ball mount and provides a connection point for your trailer's coupler. It's made from a durable, cold-forged steel construction with corrosion resistant chrome finishing. It does come with the lock washer and the nut, so all that's included. The fine thread design provides a very tight, strong grip. The wrench flats make it easy to hold the ball in place while tightening the nut.

You can use a 2" wrench here at the flats. Again, the ball diameter is 2-5/16". Weight capacity is engraved right here on the top of the ball, 20,000 pounds.When it comes to the shank, this shank has a diameter of 1-1/4". It has a length measurement of 2-3/4" long. This is designed to fit a drawbar thickness of 3/8" to 1" thick.

The nut is a 1-7/8" nut with a torque rating of 450 foot pounds. The product's covered with a limited lifetime warranty and when installing this, you would place this through the ball hole on the drawbar. Then, on the underside of the drawbar, you place on the split lock washer followed by the nut. Then, you can just go ahead and get everything hand tight. Then, you can use a socket and wrench to get everything tightened down to the proper torque ratings as specified in the instructions.That's going to do it for today's look at the 2-5/16" hitch ball from Draw-Tite..
