Hitch Balls & Ball Mounts

About Hitch Balls & Ball Mounts

The ball mount is the link between your hitch and your trailer. This connection is what pulls your trailer along with your car or truck. While many mounts come with a ball already attached, some do not. If your mount does not have a ball, you will need to purchase one separately. There are many different types of balls on the market, so it is important to choose one that is compatible with your mount. Once you have selected the right ball for your mount, it is time to install it. Installing a hitch ball is simple and only takes a few minutes. First, remove the pin that holds the ball in place. Next, insert the shank of the ball into the mount and replace the pin. Finally, tighten the nut on the shank to secure the ball in place. With the ball installed, your hitch is now ready to tow a trailer.
