What is a drop hitch?
Simply put, a drop hitch, also known as a drop receiver or drop ball mount, is a device used in towing applications. It adjusts the height of the hitch receiver in the trailer or towing vehicle. It is typically used when there is a height difference between the towing vehicle’s hitch receiver and the trailer’s coupler.
A drop hitch consists of a metal bar with a square receiver tube on one end to attach to the hitch receiver of the towing vehicle and a ball mount on the other end to connect to the trailer’s coupler. The ball mount has a hitch ball attached to it, providing the trailer’s connection point.
A drop hitch ensures a level trailer during towing. This is crucial for safe and stable towing. By selecting the appropriate drop hitch with the desired amount of drop or rise, you can adjust the towing height to achieve a level towing position.
Drop hitches have various sizes and weight capacities to accommodate different towing setups. Selecting a drop hitch that matches the towing vehicle’s hitch receiver size, the trailer’s coupler size, and the towing capacity requirements is important.
When using a drop hitch, it’s important to ensure it is properly installed. Therefore, always secure it to the towing vehicle’s hitch receiver using the appropriate hitch pin or lock. Regular inspection and maintenance of the drop hitch are also important to ensure safe towing conditions.
