Video Transcript for Diversi-Tech Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount Review

This is Diversi-Tech Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount, part number DTALBM6625. This ball mount, like other Diversi-Tech ball mounts is made from aircraft grade billet aluminum, it is machined from a single piece of aluminum. It is designed for use with 2-1/2 inch by 2-1/2 inch trailer receiver hitches and is rated for up to 10,000 lbs gross trailer weight and 1,500 lbs tongue weight. It can be used in the rise position for up to 7 inches of rise, or in the position for up to 6 inches of and can be adjusted in 1 inch increments. The ball platform has 2 fixed balls, a 2-5/16 ball as well as a more common 2 inch ball. To mount our ball platform to our shank, we need to retract this pin. To do so, we will use the lock on the side. When we turn the lock the pin is retracted so we can mount it to our shank. Slip the platform over the shank and when you lock the key the pin will into place. You will not be able to remove the key unless the pin is seated all the way into the shank. This ball mount also features Diversi-Tech self-locking hitch pin. You will not need to use a separate pin and clip or a hitch lock with this ball mount. The pin is integrated into the ball mount. To install the ball mount, turn the lock and the pins will retract. Once you have it mounted properly in your hitch, turn the lock back and the pins will extend, securing the ball mount inside your hitch. This is a great security feature as there is no hitch pin extending outside of the hitch, for potential thieves to cut and it is also more convenient because you will not need to remember a separate pin and clip or locking hitch pin. And that does it for Diversi-Tech Self-Locking Adjustable Ball Mount, part number DTALBM6625.

Every picture tells a story. The 2 most popular hitch size. Internal lock feature meaning anti thief proof. No key, no takey. Solid chrome through out, adjustable. That's why I spent the money and purchased, it was well worth it. Hassel free and the finish well add more character to your vehicle. You always get what you pay for. but in this case much more. If you have a Harley make sure you take the right key as they appear the same.122964

Amazing product! I have had one for my f150 and just purchased the 2.5 receiver for my f350. Etrailer was very diligent in shipping it out to me both times. Would definitely recommend using etrailer and this product. 112633

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

rattles when in receiver. expected better fit for a product of this cost. will have to find a way to stop rattle or it will drive me nuts.99244


Some rattle is normal, though nonetheless , annoying. Remember this hitch is essentially a 2 inch hitch with an adapter to fit inside a 2-12 inch hitch. Adapters add to rattle. Add in the fact that it is adjustable, and you get another rattle point. Anti-rattle devices can do quite a bit to keep things quiet in the hitch. It will also quiet down some when you hook up a trailer and it has a load on it rather than bouncing around in the hitch.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for a Ford F-350 Pickup
  • The adjustable ball mount you will need will depend on the height of the top of the hitch opening on your F-350 with 2-1/2 inch receiver hitch. We have an article that explains how to measure to select the correct ball mount, see link. For instance, on my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 the top of the receiver opening is 20 inches from the ground when parked on a level surface. I use an adjustable drop receiver at 5 inches of drop, top of receiver opening to top of ball mount, for towing a equipment trai

  • How Well Do the Locking Mechanisms Stand Up in the Diversi-Tech Aluminum Ball Mounts
  • We have not had any complaints regarding the Self-Locking, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6625, locking up or freezing. Sometimes you may need to lift up on or jostle the ball mount to take pressure off of it so it is easier to turn the key. Diversi-Tech recommends using air tool oil in the locking mechanisms to keep it in good working condition. You can check out the customer reviews on the product page. I have also included a link to a video review for you.

  • Is a 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball Available for the Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM6625
  • I do have a solution that will allow you to use a 1-7/8 inch ball mount with the Diversi-Tech Adjustable Aluminum ball mount, but I spoke with my contact at Diversi-Tech and she told me that they do not offer a separate ball mount platform with a 1-7/8 inch ball mount. Instead, take a look at the Diversi-Tech Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch Receivers, # DTALBM6625-3S. This adjustable ball mount allows you to use the same ball mount platform for a 1-7/8 inch, 2 inch and a 2-5/1

I recommend part # DTSTBM6625. This ball mount has a 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise with increments of 1 inch for adjusting. It has an adjustable pin in the top of the shank that protrudes through the adapter that prevents rattling. The attached balls measure 2 inches and 2-5/16 inches. I have attached a phot

  • Can Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM6625 be Used Without Outer Sleeve in 2-Inch Hitch
  • The steel sleeve around the shank of the USA-made Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM6625 is not a removable component, like an adapter. It is part of the integrated locking mechanism that secures the shank in your receiver tube. This ball mount is designed for use only in 2-1/2-inch hitch receivers. It cannot be used in a 2-inch hitch. The linked video will help illustrate the operation of the lock mechanism. We do offer a comparable product from Diversi-Tech designed for 2-inch h
