Review of Tow Ready Ball Mounts TR63043


Today we'll be reviewing part number TR-63043. This is the tow ready pintle hook with shank. It's going to be rated at 10,000 pounds and it's going to have a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. This is designed to fit a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. This portion here is going to slide in to our hitch. You're going to push it in until you hear the pin holes align with one another and then you'll need to install a pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock.

Those are going to be sold separately, you can refer to our website. Type in part number PC3 and it's going to refer you to a 5/8th inch pin that comes with a clip. This is designed to use as a pintle hook for trailers with Lunette rings. It's made from a solid steel construction with a powder coat finish on it so it's going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion. Again the pin and clip or the pin and lock are going to be sold separately, just secure it inside the hitch. To go over a few measurements, the overall length is going to give us a measurement from end to end of 14 1/2 inches. The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank, that's going to give us a measurement of 2 1/2 inches.

If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the opening, that's going to give us a measurement of 10 inches. You can see here it is a nice solid piece. It's got the pin here up top, all we got to do is disconnect the pin. It's connected with a chain so it's not going to get lost, it's always going to stay close by. Lift up on the little T-handle and it's going to allow you to pull the ring back or it's going to allow you to pull the top portion back. That way you can get in there and connect the Lunette ring and once you have that connected put that back down and the pin is going to secure everything in place. It's really simple installation all you got to do is take the pintle hook, slide the shank into the receiver tube of the hitch.

You're going to push it in until you hear pin holes align up with one another and then you'll need to install your hitch pin and clip or hitch pin and lock. The one I'm using in our demonstration today is part number PC3 and you can find that right here at etrailer.com. With it installed you'll be set and ready to go. That's going to do it for today's review of part number TR63043. This is the tow ready pintle hook. .
