Video Transcript for Diversi-Tech Ball Mounts DTALBM6600-2S Review

Today, were going to review part number DTALBM6600-2S. This is the Diversi-Tech Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount. This adjustable ball mount will make it easier for you to haul different trailers. Right here, you can see the ball height would be adjustable in increments of 1-inch so that you can easily switch between trailers with different tongue heights. Over here, the reversible ball platform will let you swap between the 2 different size hitch balls. In this case, they got a 2-inch hitch ball, stainless steel hitch ball.

In this end if you flip it over, a 2-5/16 size stainless steel hitch ball in the other side. It does use a convenient self-locking system which will lock the ball mount right here to your receiver tube and then where you can lock the ball platform to the ball mount.These built-in locks right here cant get lost like other kinds of hitch locks. They do have these rubber seals that are double-sealed to help keep out any water. This will help resist corrosion and it requires no maintenance. It does use these pick-resistant, tube-style keys.

There are 2 sets, theres 4 total included. Now, the ball mount is machined from a solid piece of aircraft grade billet aluminum. The solid aluminum produces a lightweight yet very strong ball mount and as you can see there are no welds on it; the welds which the weight will cause weak points that could break.It does have a nice polished finish which help create a high-quality appearance and again on the ball platform here, it has 2. The 303 stainless steel hitch balls are included and the 303 stainless steel is great for marine applications because its highly resistant to corrosion. Now on the top of the ball mount, you can see theres this spring loaded like ball bearings right up here and this is a built-in anti-rattle system which will keep your ball mount quiet and it lessens the wear.

It will help stop movement of the ball mount when theres no trailer attached. This part is made in the USA. It is designed to fit on 2-inch trailer hitch receivers and again the ball diameters are 2-inch and 2-5/16. The towing capacity on this is 10,000 pounds. The tongue weight capacity is 1,500 pounds.It does come with a 1-year limited warranty and basically I just want to show you how this would work.

If you would take your ball mount and it can be used in either the rise or the drop position. So if you just open your seal here where the lock is located, then you can take one of your keys, go ahead and insert it in and youll notice as I turn the key, youll see these pins go inside the ball mount itself. Now, that will allow you to slide this into the hitch receiver opening, line that pin up with the hitch pin hole in your receiver and then just turn the key and these pins will extend out into your hitch receiver and lock this ball mount into place. As I mentioned, these spring loaded balls up here will also help keep it from rattling.So once thats locked into place, you can go ahead and push your seal back in. Then what you want to do, then you can attach it and decide which ball size youre going to use, 2-inch or 2-5/16. In this case, well use the 2-5/16 and the same way, it has a pin. If you open this, go ahead and put the key in. Turn this and youll see the pin retract in to the ball mount and then you just basically would install it. If youre going to do a drop, you install it to whatever height you want. You got 1-inch increments here. Im going to put it on the very bottom one just so we can get some measurements for you. Lets go Trying to get that to line up correctly. There we go. Pull the key out. Go ahead and push that cover back in.So I have it right now. The ball mount or the ball platform is locked to the ball mount at the lowest position. So basically, a few measurements what Im going to give you in the maximum drop position like it is right now. If you measure from the top of the hitch receiver opening to the top of the ball platform, the maximum drop as you can see is going to be 6 inches. Now if you do decide to use it in the rise position, which would be this way. Its in the maximum rise position. The measurement from the top of the ball platform to the hot top of the hitch receiver opening is going to be 7 inches.So those are your maximums and again as we mentioned, you can move this to whatever in 1-inch increments whatever height you would need for your trailer. Now, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of this upright bar is going to measure 4.25 inches and then the measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of hitch ball itself is 8.5 inches. That should do it for the review of part number DTALBM6600-2S, the Diversi-Tech Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount. .

I have owned 2 of these hitches. First one lost when I had a hitch pin fall out of a 2 1/2" adapter...fortunately not towing! The hitch is easy to adjust, very durable, looks nice and is well engineered for towing. Finer points that need attention: 1. rubber caps over cylinder locks have a tether to prevent loss that never allows the rubber cap to fit back in place...ever. It's a design flaw. New out the box, the cap won't fit back into place after you remove it the first time. Expect to have to always have to secure the rubber caps or just cut it off. 2. The anti-rattle spring loaded ball bearings are not effective. I have used this hitch in over a dozen vehicles and none have had hitch openings tight enough to allow the anti-rattle bearings to be effective or make contact. The hitch will rattle, always, unless you use some metal shims or tape with duct tape around the draw bar. 3. If you try to adapt the 2" draw bar to a 2 1/2" hitch, it puts the hitch about 3-4" farther back away from the truck. This could be a problem from the standpoint of hitting your shins on the bar, to putting your load farther back, to decreasing your rear clearance. 4. Spending this much money on a hitch, I typically go through 2-4 vehicles with the same hitch and they all have different size hitches. If you buy the 2 1/2" size draw bar with the cylinder lock, it's only good for a 2 1/2" hitch. Not good if you try to back convert to a 2" hitch or use it in one of your buddy's 2" receivers. If you buy the 2" draw bar, you can purchase the $50 adapter to use in either a 2" or 2 1/2" hitch size. 103332

The aluminum and stainless design is superior to all other hitches this style. I have another aluminum hitch with steel locking pins and if you aren't careful they will seize together. The design with the pins being self lubricated and enclosed means nothing can seize together. The look and functionality is superior to all other drop hitch/ball's. 100119

This is my second DT ball mount bought from etrailer.com. Their service is 5 star for sure! Ball mounts are well made.....I just wish DT made one with only a 2" ball on the top. I don't like the bigger ball on the bottom. 245570

Comments

The inventory you received is current. This series of ballmounts recently underwent a bit of a re-design and the anti-rattle detents have been removed. We did not know this change was happening until we received updated shipments.

2011 Dodge Ram 2500

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


I have not had a chance to use the ball mount yet but it is easy to use and fits receiver with no issues. I recently purchased a Curt class V receiver that is installed below my OEM receiver. With the drop installed in the Curt receiver in the upright position, the back of the ball mount comes very close to the bumper on my 2011 Ram 2500 crew cab. I will see if there are any contact issues when actually towing and revise my review, if necessary. 114259


Comments

After using the hitch for six months, with the Curt receiver, I found it does contact my bumper when positioned at that height, causing scrathes. I also find that I can not unlock the receiver pins without having to tap pretty hard on the pin ends.

Both products are working well. I initially had a problem with the ball mount, which you promptly followed up on, giving me the Diversi-Tech support number. After talking to the rep and following a couple of his suggestions, the mount is now working well.

2015 Ford F-450

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


Wow, this hitch is a beast! You can just feel the build quality. That goes without saying that it is actually built really well. It was a bit of a tight fit in my 2015 F-450 receiver, but a small amount of bearing grease inside the receiver around the corners made it slide in and out a little more easier by hand in case I need to flip it in the field. Doesn't rattle either. Overall, I am very pleased. It just looks good hanging off the back of any 3/4 ton or larger truck. I think if you have a smaller truck, this might not be for you. Then again, I am for function before fashion really! 208594


Comments

Still running strong with no issues after a year. You really cant go wrong with Stainless Steel. It still looks brand new.

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


Required a bit of gentle sanding to fit into my receiver. I hated to scuff up the mirror finish. Looks great on my lifted Tacoma. The locking mechanism & reversible slide ball and no rattle design is genius. 4 keys, I like that too. I wish more things were built this way. 58013


Comments

I stand by the 5 star rating, hitch has been with out fault. I miss calculated the and trailer sits at an angle, ocasionally thats a problem. I extended the trailer tonge 3ft. that eased the angle problem. I may sell this one and reorder a correct .

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


Application: 2012 F250 Powerstroke. Overall crafsmanship is awesome. Makes me proud that it was MADE IN THE USA. Haven't had it on truck long enough to give you an extended review hence only a 4 out of 5, but hitch is solid and looks like it can take a beating. Ended up going with the solid stainless balls for a little extra money rather than have the chrome peel and wear after time. 79387

2015 Chevrolet

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


What a great addition to our 2015 Chevrolet. With the new higher stance of the HD trucks, this hitch allows us to adjust for various load and trailer heights. Also, this hitch eliminates the aggravation of the sleeve insert that comes with the larger receivers. No more fuss trying to align multiple holes to insert the pin. The lock provides awesome security as well, we have lost numerous hitches from our trucks. We will be ordering these hitches for all of our trucks. We can always count on etrailer.com for quality products! 133428

2013 GMC Denali

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


I recently purchased a 2013 GMC 2500 Denali It comes with a 2.5" hitch with and adapter to make it down to a 2" hitch.. Unfortunately this locking device extends out on each side only far enough for the 2" adapter and not into the 2.5" frame hitch. I suppose i will have to find one that has a hole all the way through for a lock.. 74736


Comments

Hello Andy I have 2014 GMC denali 2500hd and from what I understand is that the locking pins that come out are not long enough to lock into the 2.5 receiver?

Yes, that is correct. This adjustable ball mount is intended to be used in 2 inch hitch applications. The Diversi-Tec # DTALBM6625

Beautiful machine work. Nice finish. Everything works as stated except the anti rattle pins built into the top. Due to construction of my 2012 Dodge 3500 hitch the pins don't hit in the right spot to stop rattle. I bought an anti rattle device and its real tight. 98920

I shopped around and did my homework to find which hitch would best suit my needs for towing behind a 2013 Ram 2500 diesel. I chose this hitch then found the best price on Etrailer. Easy to use website. Delivered within a week. Emails updating me with the tracking info. I would recommend. The hitch pins were off by 1/8in which made it really tight to put into the receiver. Called the manufacturer and they handled the issue immediately. 96370

Is a wonderful hitch- the only issue I have is that I would like the "anti-rattle pins" further back. They do not reach the receiver on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. As for etrailer- they are top notch. They called to confirm my unusual order before they shipped, sent me notifications along the way, and even a follow up email to make sure all is well. Would definitely recommend etrailer.com 132134

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


Shipping was a little slow, but part was worth the wait. Very high quality part with great finish machine work. The fit in the reciever is a little loose, will try plastic shim to minimize rattle noise. I probably should have ordered the 4" drop, as the 6" hangs a bit low on my 2012 3500 GMC but if I ordered 4 I would have needed 6. Overall great product, very happy 89844

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


Very strong, easy to install and very secure. Yes a bit pricey, but well worth the money. I did notice there was what I thought was an unusual amount of play in the receiver. I called etrailer and Marcia was so very helpful and very concerned that I may have received the wrong product. She even called the manufacturer and found out what the changes that were made by the manufacturer which made the pictures incorrect. My hat is off to Marcia and all the folks at etrailer 130643

Good Morning Patrick I just love the hitch for several reasons. It works flawlessly to start with and I am able to adapt to almost any trailer I choose to pull. It is definitely a plus being able to move the hitch to adapt for proper levelling. I have a lot of people just stop and look at the hitch when I am in parking lots, and a time or two they have asked me where I got it. The only downside is the fact that while people see it, so does my back up alarm...

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


First of all I received my order lickity split. Thank You! When I opened the Ball Mount, I used the key and turned it to see the pins slide in. One side slightly moved. The key turned but no response. After working it for what seemed a long time, and pushing with my thumb it now works. But I am still a little skeptical of it. Hard to imagine that little amount of pin on both sides will hold 10,000 lbs. Otherwise, it looks really nice and I just used it to tow a single Seadoo and trailer and it held. The true test will be the big trailer. Sherry:) 63724

Well, I still love the Ball Mount, even thou the first time I took it off the little barrings with the springs,which I believe is the rattle control fell out. Did nt bother to stick them back in since it would happen again. I chased them down the driveway. I have a bolt on the underside of my receiver that I tighten which keeps any rattle happening. I had that installed. It pulls the trailer with no problem. Thanks, Sherry:

Thanks for the follow up Sherry. I am happy to hear that you do have an anti-rattle device that is working well for you. I also wanted to let you know that Diversi-Tech has redesigned this adjustable ball mount. The new design no longer includes the anti-rattle balls that you chased down the driveway.

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


Does what need. Gave me the drop to level my trailer. Like the locking system. Nice made hitch. Did want the 10 inch drop. Got a call from etrailer that it was on back order until September. So went with the 8 inch which works with what I have. Just wanted the additional adjustment. Very happy. 96572


Comments

Unfortunately, was using the hitch and the lock pin broke. Short story, was going over some railroad tracks. So had slowed. Suddenly lots of noise. Pull over to find trailer dragging. Damaged the jack, under my bumper. Had to leave the trailer to get another hitch. Got a replacement from manufacture under warranty. Told me never happens, but they have reworked the pin. When it happened, ball stayed on trailer hitch, rest stayed on the truck. Dont trust the hitch anymore. Crazy to spend major money on a product, to have it risk your life and those around you. Hope it was truly a one time event. But beware!

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


Adjustable ball mount - Love the product. It is the second ball mount I purchased needed to get the 2.5" shank since I changed trucks. The only issue I have had is the rubber caps over the key holes. On the first I purchased I noticed when I opened the key hole covers I could not push the rubber caps back into place, fully, because the tab that holds it to the unit would not go back into the hole - it would bunch up creating an obstruction preventing it from seating flush. After several tries and methods I finally cut the tabs off so the caps would close completely. When the new one arrived the other day I was cognizant of the previous issue and tried not to pull the cap out too far to avoid the issue however the same thing happened. In this case I was able to work the tab back into the hole in both places. I wonder if the holes were a little larger if it would not help this situation? Keep up the good work. 63114

I live in Michigan and toe Snowmobile trailers during the winter with lots of salt. Have you used your new hitch in the salt?

I leave the hitch on year round and live in Eastern PA where there is always salt on the roads. Maybe a little rust on the actual ball from where the finish has worn off - other than that no wear or salt damage.

Product was delivered quickly as advertised. Looks good, almost too good for a hitch. Easy to install and adjust. It's pricey, the design and the flexibility make the investment worth while. 121681


Comments

Overall, Im still satisfied with the product but there are some items that I wish were different or I would have done differently. Yes it rattles a lot as has been mentioned. Additionally as it has been used, it is difficult to get the pin to properly engage in several slots which limits adjustability and finally I would go with the stainless balls instead of chrome as the chrome pealed off after first use so now I have rusty balls. For the money involved, if I ever need to buy another hitch, I would probably would not buy another.

Thanks for the follow up after using your ball mount for at least a year. If you would prefer the stainless steel trailer ball option you might check out the # DTSTBM6825-2S
Solid-Tow Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount - 2 Stainless Balls - 8" Drop, 9" Rise - 10K
$341.95
with the flip style option for a 2 inch or 2-5/16 inch trailer ball. Or you might also check out the # DTALBM6825-3S
Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount - 3 Stainless Balls - 8" Drop, 9" Rise - 10K
$485.95
that has 3 different interchangeable options for 1-7/8, 2, or 2 inch trailer ball.

So far so good. Only had the hitch for 2 wks. Upgraded my tractor hauler truck and trailer so why not the hitch as well. Looks to be very solid construction. As to the locking mechanism I am pleased I chose the barrel keys. Easier to keep clean (dirt roads) and spending this $$ on hitch I lock the design. Other hitches have been stolen when they beat the lock bar off the receiver. 179248

This hitch was better than expected. Bright, well-built, heavy, solid, and precise are words that come to mind when describing this product. Combined with a stainless steel ball and you have yourself a real winner for a rust-free system. Fortunately, this thing can be locked. It's also easy to unlock and remove. The spring-loaded ball bearings on top seem to help with rattle as well. Overall, I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants the best and has the money to pay for it. 88022

I still love the hitch after a year of use. Its still shiny. Paired with a stainless steel ball, its the best.

Well its been a year! I use this hitch almost every weekend. I have a 20 ft stock trailer, a 18 ft car hauler and a 32 ft enclosed toy hauler. The hitch works great with all 3 trailers, from 1000 lbs of cargo to 6000 lbs of cattle. NO PROBLEM!!!! Dont second guess just buy it you will love it. Oh yeah because of its design and the fact that it locks on to your receiver, I have never taken it off and I dont worry about it being stolen.

uct works great. There was only one problem that I ran into. The locking key area.that the key fits in would turn a little due to the vibration and the notches would n ot line up. I had to take one key and grind the tab on the outside of the key off so that the key would fit in to match to the tab on the inside. Then I could turn the lock back to where it would line back up. Then I could use the othet key as I would normally use it.

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


I looks nice out of the box, but the locking pins don't retract flush with the body, so it's tough to get it in and out of the receiver. Once in the receiver and the locking pins engaged, there is a lot of free play between the body and the receiver, so I'll see if I can hear it rattling around. I like how tight the key covers are, which hopefully will keep the lock tumblers clean. 132200

OK, The keys could be a little stronger as they tend to bend when youre turning them.

It's a nice piece of equipment and I'm looking forward to using it a lot. Note that the anti-rattle feature is no longer installed in these hitch mounts. The anti-rattle features were almost never in the right position to do any good with the short hitch tubes of today. The manufacturer told me they were discontinuing them because of that. 138401


Comments

The hitch bar has been scarred a bit by a sharp edge on the mount tube but is otherwise working well up to now.

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


First off, this is a beautifully made ball mount. Even though it is aluminum, it is still pretty heavy. It looks like it could tow anything. I needed the adjustability because I'm not sure what I'll be towing in the future. I had to return the first one I ordered. The key got stuck and wouldn't come out. They key for adjusting the balls worked fine. ETrailer was very prompt in sending me out another one. The second one was stiff, but became easier to use after several cycles. I towed with it for 300 miles and it worked great. I like the feature that you can turn the ball around and lock it out of the way, so you don't accidently rub up against it and get grease on your pants. I'm very pleased with it so far. I'm just a bit leery now with the key getting stuck, that I promptly removed it from the truck and keep it inside when not in use. I would have gave it an excellent rating except for the key issue. 230680

High quality hitch. Very easy to use. I really like that it is one key for the lock and the adjustment. Really good looking hitch. Price is really good when you price out lock/ball/receiver and this one is adjustable with one key for all. This is our second one purchased after we tried the first one out. 208590

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


This is an excellent piece! I've had to use several different ball mounts for years, due to different tongue heights on my various trailers. Problem solved! Looks great, isn't too heavy, and doesn't rattle too badly, although there is still some minor (expected) movement. It is far less sloppy than another adjustable ball mount I have, that sits unused mainly due to the annoying rattling. I like the locking mechanism, and hopefully it will handle our winter road salt. I don't typically leave the ball mount on the truck when not in use, but the security offered by the locking pins seems superior to using the typical locking hitch pins. Good peace of mind. I highly recommend this piece, and as always, etrailers service was excellent, price was right, and delivery was right on schedule. 146490

I had one previously that I sold with another vehicle with the chrome balls that worked great for the 5 years I had it pulling 9,000# plus boats/trailers. Looking forward to even greater durability with the stainless steel balls on this hitch. 177255

Ask the Experts about this Fastway Ball Mounts


  • Availability of Adjustable Ball Mount With Removable Stainless Steel Hitch Balls
  • The hitch balls cannot be removed on the Diversi-Tech Ball Mounts, part # DTALBM6607, you have referenced. It comes with two chrome-plated steel hitch balls that are 1-7/8 inch and 2-inch size. I have two ball mounts with removable stainless steel balls that have the same rise and drop, but the hitch ball sizes are 2-inch and 2-5/16-inch. They are the Diversi-Tech Ball Mounts, part # DTALBM6600-2S, and the newer Solid Tow design in the Diversi-Tech Ball Mounts, part # DTSTBM6600-2S....

  • Adjustable Ball Mount that Can Do 6 inches of Drop with Stainless Steel Balls
  • Most likely you would end up with a 2 inch hitch on your 2013 GMC Sierra, but it's hard to say just based on a capacity. Most GM factory hitches on the 2500s are 2 inch but you would have either measure yourself or contact the seller. The B and W Tow and Stow ball mounts are great options at a great price, but they do not have stainless steel balls. We have a similar option that does though. The part # DTALBM6625-2S is the same rise and drop but has stainless steel balls. The rest...

  • It sounds like you really did your homework and know exactly what you are looking for in terms of an adjustable ball mount. Based on everything you said the part # DTSTBM6600 would be a great choice for you as it has the ball sizes you need plus has the max amount of drop that you would need.

  • Recommended Fastway Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount With Stainless Steel Hitch Balls
  • Fastway actually does use stainless steel hitch balls. They offer many of their ball mounts like the # DTALBM6600 with the chrome plated steel balls, and if you prefer, the same ball mount with the same features is available with stainless steel hitch balls. That is part # DTALBM6600-2S. I called my contact at Fastway and they told me that they offer the chrome plated as a more cost-efective option.
