Is aluminum really strong enough for use in ball mounts?

The short answer is YES! When Andersen Manufacturing, Inc. first released the Alumistinger solid aluminum ball mount, many in the industry thought we were doomed to failure. But, after many years and many miles of problem free service the industry had to change its tune. In fact, many companies have released remarkably similar products. When you decide to step up from your rusty steel hitch to the great look of aluminum, remember Alumistinger was first. Insist on the Original!

Alumistinger ball mounts will never rust and are much lighter than standard steel ball mounts of similar strength. The aluminum looks great by itself, so there is no need for paint or chrome plating that will chip and peel over time. To keep the shine, you simply need to polish the hitch from time to time, restoring the high gloss surface and making your hitch look brand new. The perfect product for this is Andersen’s Fast Shine Premium Metal Polish, which gives you twice the shine in half the time!

Don’t be confused with the knockoffs of our original aluminum hitches made by: DT, Reese, Valley, and Buyers. Insist on the Original!
