Looking for cheap tow ball

I need a 2" tow ball. The least expensive I can get. Don't need a hitch or anything like that, just a place to go.

Thanks.

Do you need it for one time use? If so you can borrow mine.

To purchase go to any of the afore mentioned........They are really cheap.

Do yourself a favor and be sure to flat washer both sides of the hitch hole. I actually saw a hitch ball shred the threads and rip out. Had to be a crazy man driving and wrenching but i did see it. Besides what's the cost of a couple washers(solid ones)?

Sonuva...I coulda swore I paid over $20 for the tow ball that I've got on there now. It's too small for what I need it for, though.
