I got two balls!!

For my new Invisihitch of course! I came across this interchangeable ball set and thought it would be great for my needs. I tow various sizes of trailers. This sure makes it easy to change ball sizes without having to undo highly torqued nuts. Just push the pin out, remove ball and replace with different size, and away you go.











Cover for the shank

And a nice box to store them in.



They are rated for 10,000 pounds. Very happy with them

Neat. I had no idea the balls were interchangeable like that. So the pin just press fits in and the ball has a spring clip that grabs the detent?

No spring clip, just a rubber grommet. The coupler prevents it from coming out.
