Hitches are just some of the accessories used by most trailer owners. Add-ons like a Cequent Ball Mount makes the hitch even more usable.
The hitch ball is the part of the trailer hitch that the cargo is attached to. Cequent ball mount is usually made of chrome or another strong metal. Bigger, heavier hitch balls can bear more weight than smaller ones. Cequent Ball Mount is removable and can be changed if another size is needed.
The hitch ball is usually connected to a Cequent Ball Mount. Cequent Ball Mount comes in a variety of sizes to fit different trailer hitch receiver openings. A Cequent Ball Mount is curved to let the user attach the ball lower or higher than the trailer hitch opening to accommodate trailers with different socket heights. Other type of Cequent Ball Mounts is extra long and come in handy when hauling horse trailers and other irregularly shaped trailers.
Trailer hitch receivers are similar to bumpers. They are horizontal bars fastened to the rear of the truck. They have an opening that accommodates the ball mount. Once the Cequent Ball Mount is locked in the receiver opening, the trailer hitch can be attached to its cargo.
Trailer hitch locks are similar to hitch covers except that they can be locked into place and only taken off with a key. These are useful for security and can keep water and debris out of the hitch receiver opening.
Some trailer hitch accessories are needed for the hitch to work properly, while others merely make it easier and more convenient to use the hitch.
