Invertible Gooseneck Hitch Ball  Buy Now $349  Model chart below

New lower prices!!  “I mean Cheap Popup Hitches”

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.

The Flip-Over Ball gooseneck. Just rotate the handle in fender well and Flip the ball over.

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.

Designed and Built for Strength Order Now

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. Bolting the Center Section in place between the Cross Members creates a vertical load capacity that greatly exceeds the maximum rear axle load rating of the pick up trucks Flip-Over Ball hitches are designed for.

Flip-Over Ball Frame Plates, which secure the hitch to the tow vehicle, bolt to the Front and Rear Cross Members and use existing frame holes in the web of the frame to bolt to the outside of the truck frame.

Flip-Over Ball hitches are designed and built to provide years of trouble-free service The cold-finish steel hitch ball is plated with bright yellow chromate.

Pulling a trailer with this coupler is like riding on a cloud. It absorbs up to
59% of the bumps, jolts and jars that make towing hard on you, hard on
your cargo and hard on your equipment. Simply swap it out with the
coupler on your gooseneck now – and, Walla! Instant gratification.

NEW and Improved
You’re going to love this newly redesigned PopUp 2 Hitch. Smoother acting and trouble free.  We’ve made the best hitch even better.  One pull of the handle to raise the ball is all it will take to convince you that this is the hitch you want.  Try it and see.  
We’ve replaced the cam mechanism with a simple yet strong and reliable wedge slide to raise and lower the ball.  Simply pull the rod to raise the ball and push to lower it from the wheel-well of your truck.
