Review of the Brophy Pintle Hook


What's up everybody, it's AJ with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna be checking out this Brophy pintle hook. It's gonna be for 2 1/2 inch hitches, it's gonna help you hook up to the lunette ring, like you see here, to haul those big flatbed trailers. Let's check it out. Take a closer look at it, you can see how it's set up. The pintle hook is in the lunette ring.

It's resting down in this groove here, so it's in place, ready to use. It's really easy to set up. You can just pull this pin out, pull this lever, and that's gonna raise the top portion up just like that. Now with that up into place, the other nice thing is you don't have to pull that handle and push it down in place when you're going to set up. So let's say you lower your lunette ring down on here.

You're good to go, you just push into place and it's locked in there. You can't just pull it back up. You have to pull that lever to get it to move. So that's a pretty cool feature, that just makes it easier when you're hooking this up to go get on the road. So this is gonna be a standard pintle hook.

It's got a straight shank on it, so there's not gonna be any adjusting. And it's also gonna be a forged steel with a black powder coat finish on there, so you don't have to worry about leaving this in your hitch, leaving it out in the elements. It's not gonna rust or corrode on you. Now this pintle hook is gonna have a gross trailer weight rating of 36,000 pounds, and then it's gonna have a gross tongue weight of 3000 pounds. Something else to think about is the lunette ring.

It's gonna work with the diameter as a minimum of 2 1/2 inches. So just keep that in mind when you're looking at your pintle hook and your trailer and your lunette ring. One thing I will say is that it does not come with a hitch pin, so you're gonna have to pick up one of those separately. And if you're gonna have to pick one up, I recommend just getting one that locks. So we got the etrailer one right here, I recommend that. It's got a barrel lock on this side that you can lock up your pintle hook, and that just gives you the peace of mind of nobody's gonna mess with this when you're not around, because this is locked up. Overall, I think it's gonna be really good. I think it's gonna help you get that trailer hooked up and get on the road quickly, especially if you only have one trailer. If you have multiple trailers that you're looking to pull, I would recommend looking into the adjustable pintle hooks that we have on our site. That way you can move that up and down to adjust to different trailers and you don't have to pull this out and get a whole new setup every single time. Well, that does it. Thanks for hanging out, and I hope this helps..
