Drop Forged Ball Mounts

A ball mount is a metal bar that inserts into the receiver hitch and provides a mounting plate to hold a trailer ball. Ball mounts are made in a variety of styles and capacities to accommodate different trailers and coupler heights. A ball mount is held in place in the hitch with a hitch pin & clip or a hitch lock.

Drop forged ball mount is ideal for towing heavy duty trailers and are mostly used with full-size pickups, SUVs, flatbeds and other commercial trucks. Forged steel design providing you with ultimate strength when towing your cargo.
