Review of the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit


Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit, offering a three quarter inch rise or a two inch drop and a 7500 pound capacity. The part number is 989891. Now the E-Trailer Ball Mount Kit's gonna be the solution so we can get our trailer as level as possible while we head down the road. Here's what you'll have in your kit. We're gonna have the ball mount itself and a pin and a clip to secure it into your hitch. You're gonna have your inch and seven-eighth ball, your two inch ball and then a very nice convenient storage bag for it, as you can see all of this fits in here very easily.

You'll even have a little bit of extra room to store some extra items in there if you might need. And it'll just keep all the dirt and grease from getting into your vehicle.Now the ball mount kit's been designed to work with class 3, 4 or class 5 hitches that have the two inch by two inch receiver tube opening or some of the class 5 hitches you'll have to use that adapter to bring it down to a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening. Now the ball mounts are measured from the top of the receiver tube opening here. This is the two inch drop version or three quarter inch rise, as you can see from that. Receiver tube opening edge to our ball platform, we have about three quarters of an inch raise.

If we we're to flip that over, it's gonna give us two inches of drop. Now this ball mount from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of the ball is about eight and a half inches. That's really only gonna matter to you if your hitch is set in underneath the vehicle and you wanna ensure that you're gonna be able to get your trailer connected.Now the ball mount itself, it's gonna have a weight rating of 7500 pounds as far as gross trailer weight goes. That's the total weight of your trailer and anything that you load up on it. This is gonna have a maximum tone weight rating of 750 pounds, so that's the maximum downward force we can put on the ball mount.

It's gonna have the hollow shank, that's gonna help us out with weight, they're not quite as heavy as a solid shank would but this is also gonna work out really well if you wanna add an anti-rattle device that maybe has a nut that goes inside. Shouldn't be an issue at all getting that secured. Now each ball's provided with the nut and the lock washer, you're gonna need to secure it to the ball mount. The shank length is gonna be two and one eighth of an inch long on both of them and it's one inch in diameter. So if you already have some ball mounts at home and you're thinking you might wanna add them to it, just wanna make sure that size is gonna work for ya.That will complete our look at the E-Trailer Ball Mount Kit, part number is 989891..
