|Flip-Over Ball For your Gooseneck Hitch Recommended my “MrTruck”In the seventies, I wrote articles about needing the gooseneck ball 5 inches in front of the rear axle for proper steering weight so your truck didn’t wander. Now with crew cabs and extended cabs, the truck frames are longer and 2 inches in front of the rear axle works. This helps with short beds. Popup places the ball 2 inches in front of the rear axles. The other guys are 5. Popup Flip-Over Ball also has a round shank, so it can rotate without a trailer and stay freed up. The other guys have a square shank and can stick or freeze up if not lubricated regularly.

How it Works
The Flip-Over Ball is locked in the one-piece ball socket with a spring loaded stainless steel pin. To invert the ball, just reach into the driver side rear wheel well and rotate the actuating rod 90 degrees. This cams the retaining pin to the open position. Invert the ball, and rotate the actuating rod back to its original locked position. That’s all there is to it.

The Flip-Over Ball is not only easy – it’s hassle-free. The ball socket is machined from a solid piece of high-grade steel to insure strength and years of service. The retaining pin is machined from stainless steel so it will not rust and seize. The pin is held securely in the locked position by a strong stainless steel spring. When the actuating rod is rotated 90 degrees a cam retracts the retaining pin to its open position so the ball can be inverted. When the actuating rod is returned to its locked position – the retaining pin securely locks the ball in its socket. extending ball and coupler life.
Since the ball base is round, it stays easy to pull out of it’s socket by hand when disconnected to switch ends and have your truck bed floor to use again. I’m seeing a lot of folks switching from 5th wheel couplers to gooseneck ball couplers because of the ease of use and being able to use the truck bed without wrestling the 5th wheel coupler out of the bed.

Front and Rear Cross Members are fabricated from 2″ X 2.5″ X .375″ angle. (1″ X 2″ steel bar is used for the Front Cross Member in Dodge and for the Rear Cross Member in new body style Chevy and GMC Silverado/Sierra.) Cross Members span and sit on top of the truck frame, thereby transferring all trailer tongue weight directly to the frame of the tow vehicle.
The hitch Center Section, containing the Flip-Over Ball hitch ball mechanism, is fabricated in a 24” long channel formed from 0.25″ steel plate. The Center Section assembly is trussed to accommodate extreme vertical and lateral loading.
