If you need to change out your ball to a different size, like a two and five sixteens, or an inch and seven eights, all you need to do is purchase another ball that has a one inch diameter shank, needs to install a one inch diameter hole of our ball mount itself.

This ball mount has your standard two inch drop, which goes from the top of the two inch opening here to the bottom here where the ball rests against. If you want to take off the ball, flip over here and put the ball around by taking off the nut and the washer, change the direction of it. inaudible 00:02:03 go from the top of the 2 inch receiver frame here, to the top here, it'll give you a three quarter of an inch rise. Now that we've been gone over some features, we'll show how to install it. Take the ball mount, we'll slide it in here, making sure the ball is facing up.

We'll take our five eights diameter hitch pin hole and align it up with the hitch pin hole in our receiver. We'll take our included pin and clip apply it through and secure the clip. Now our ball amount is secure and our hitch are ready to tow your trailer. With our ball mount installed inaudible 00:02:50 to the trailer here, all you can do is low our trailer down into the ball mount and we can hook up the rest of the way with our safety chains and electrical connections and we can go on the road on a journey.
