Today we are going to show you part number
SR25733 from Softride. This is their steel Tightening Ball Mount. This part number is for the 2-inch version. This is also available in 4-inch and 6-inch
versions, too. A few features of this ball mount are that
it comes complete with a wedge and tightening hitch pin to combine for safe and quiet towing. It comes with a stainless steel hitch pin
– which is really nice you do not have to worry about corrosion. It comes with a 1-inch shank hole for 1-inch
balls. It is rated for Class IV applications with
a 1,000-pound tongue weight and 10,000-pound towing weight. And it actually tightens the ball mount in
three directions: front to rear and also up left to right or up and down. Next we will cover some of the features and
details and show you how it works. The ball mount comes with a tightening hitch
pin, which is this part right here. This is constructed of stainless steel, and
it just threads in right here. This bolt tightens up the ball mount against
the hitch so it pulls against the hitch, like so. And when the ball mount gets pushed inside
of the hitch, this wedge comes up and actually locks everything into position, so it does
not move left to right or up and down. Also this hitch pin controls movement from
forward to rearward, too, eliminating flop in the hitch that way, also. And then your lock here, which is constructed
of brass and stainless steel, goes on the other side. And this lock simply gets pushed onto the
pin. And it comes complete with a cap to keep the
elements out of the lock itself. Now I will actually go ahead and install this
on a typical 2-inch receiver to give you a better idea of how it works.
