Install a tow ball collar on plates smaller than the 40mm plate. Help prevent the mounting plate from bending under stress loads.
10t ball collar solves a problem mounting 10t tow ball mounted on a ute tray back. The customer felt his existing installation needed strength as it would not withstand the loads asserted by a 10t gooseneck coupling.
Ideal when your bedding plate or tow ball platform that requires strengthening.
Bed plates used in gooseneck tow balls can be as thin as 10mm as opposed to 35mm.
A collar significantly strengthens the Gooseneck mounting plate area.
This collar is used on plates smaller than the 40mm plate are used to secure the tow ball into position on a utility body.
As a result, this helps prevent the mounting plate from bending or cracking under stress loads.

- Threaded length 48mm.
- Total shank 87.3mm.
- Thread diameter 44.4mm.
- Shank diameter 50.6mm.
- Lock the castellated nut into position.
- Drill a hole.
- Insert the split pin into the hole.
- Bend the split pin back over the nut.
- The purpose of the split pin is to ensure zero movements under all driving conditions.
Further, machined flat spots on either side of the shoulder allow the ball to be grabbed with a spanner to assist locking the castellated nut.
- Diameter – 120mm.
- Thickness – 36mm.
