This cutaway view of the shank shows the locking mechanism in action. The locking pins extend out from the shank when the key is turned, locking the ball mount into the hitch.

Today we're going to review part number DTALBM6625. This is the Diversi Tech self locking adjustable aluminum ball mount with the 2 chrome balls and a 10,000 pound weight capacity. This adjustable ball mount will make it easy for you to hold different trailers. The ball height, this ball platform here can adjust an increments of 1 inch so that you can easily switch between trailers of different ton heights and it's reversible ball platform can be flopped over and let you swap between the 2 different sized balls as a 2 and 5 16th ball right here and a 2 inch diameter ball right there. Now the shank on this is designed to fit in to a 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver opening. Uses a convenient self-locking system which will lock the ball mount to the receiver tube you're putting it on and the ball platform has a lock right here that you can lock to the ball mount itself. These built in locks kink and lost like other kinds of hitch locks and they have these lock seals on them which would double seal, so when you push them in, it will help seal to keep out any water and that will help prevent any corrosion from getting into the lock cylinders. It does use these pick resistant tube style keys, there's 4 of them included and basically what you would do is just put the key in there and you'll notice as you turn it 180 degrees, those pins would go into the shank. When you turn it, you line, you slide this into your opening, line it up with the hitch pin hose and when you turn this it extend out and lock it to this receiver. Now this ball mount is made in a machine from a solid piece of aircraft grade billet aluminum, solid aluminum will produce a light weight yet strong ball mount and it doesn't have any welds that avoids the welds which cause weak points that might break.The polished finish on it will help create a high quality appearance. Now the 2 chrome plated steel hitch balls are included.
This part is made in the USA. Now the towing capacity on this is 10,000 pounds. When you use it 2 and 5 16th balls it would maintain that 10,000 pounds. Now if you do reverse it and use the 2 inch ball, it will reduce it down to 7,500 pounds. The towing capacity using either ball would be 1,500 pounds. I just want to give you a few measurements on this. I have it positioned right now in the lowest drop position.
So in the drop position, the lowest drop would be from measured from the top of the ball ball platform to the top of the shank. So if I put a ruler, that be 6 inches, would be your maximum drop and you remember you can adjust it in 1 inch increments if you don't need that much. If I flip it over, we're going to do the maximum rise and again from the top of the ball platform to the top of the shank maximum rise is going to be 7 inches. Now the measurement from the center of the hitch pin pull . or the hitch pin right here to be back of the upright bar, measurement is going to be right at 4 1/4 inches and then the measurement from the center of the hitch pin to the center of the ball mount or the ball itself, there you go. You can see it's going to be right at 8 1/2 inches. Now this does come with a 1 year limited warranty and just to show you how to adjust the ball mount, again, just open up the seal, put the key in there and as you turn it 180 degrees, that will release the pin, you'll be able to slide this out and you could see the pin right, that as you turn it, that will extend it out the locket.
When you turn it the other way, it will extend it in to remove it so you can either flip it over if you like. If you want to use the 2 inch ball and then when you find the correct position you want, you can just turn it, slide it into the whole and lock it into place and you'd be ready to go. That should do it for the review on part number DTALBM6625, the Diversi Tech self-locking adjustable aluminum ball mount. .

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

Got my new hitch faster then I expected which was great cause I already had a few trailers I wanted to move around. It is a good fit on the class V hitch (maybe a hair small so it jiggles not bad) The locks are great and gives it a nice clean line. The lock covers fit nice and snug so no way to fall open and let dirt in (Like some others.) I have only had this for a short while but have pulled my camper, a car trailer(flat bed dove tail) and my brothers boat this is where the drop really came in handy. He has a ski boat with the prop under the boat so the trailer has to sit flat and low. This hitch stepped up to that challenge like it was nothing. Great hitch I'am very very happy Thank you 224432

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

The product is awesome. The shipping however was not. The box arrived open and in bad shape. One of keys barrels is not round as it was badly hit evidently. The other issue is that one of the pins to lock it in does not really retract all the way. It went into my hitch only by smacking it real hard until it reached the holes. I hope it is not a fail point. I truly believe this is a great product so i still give it five starts but shipping does need to improve....maybe better packaging. 269803

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
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

Got that package and had it mounted in less than ten minutes. Finish is excellent and both locks worked flawlessly. Looks beautiful! My wife is buying jewelry. This is more my style. Thanks for a great product. Perry 163923
Great product, still working as advertised. As I tow trailers and some ball mounted equipment, the adjustable feature is really nice. I do wish I had opted for the stainless steel option versus the chrome ball. Chrome came off on the first tow somewhat. Other than that no issues or problems. Wonder if a person can change out the balls? It also gets lots of looks. 253822
Order follow up and customer service were outstanding. Shipping was quick. Product as advertised and appears very solid and durable. Already pulled my 6k boat and 3k utility trailers and it works as expected. Just be aware that the chrome balls are not covered by the warranty and will show wear - it's unavoidable. I would readily recommend this product to a friend. 149634
This is a nice hitch. Construction seems solid and I like the keys for the balls and the "pin". The lack of a pin is nice and it works well. The only reason I did not give this a better rating is it is fairly sloppy in the receiver. I am surprised at how much play there is between the hitch and the receiver. Nice finish and otherwise a nice hitch. 219070
Great product very happy with the quality and the looks great company to deal with. 129498

Excellent product, excellent service, excellent shipping....... excellent. 7254
Great looking design and the craftsmanship. It worked exactly as I expected it would, in lockng into the receiving hitch. The only problem I had was the plastic caps that go over the key holes, once pulled out they don't want to fit back in properly. 148223
by: Santo Guerrera06/18/2014
In general this hitch is a well built product that operates as advertised! Tolerances are somewhat open for a slight movment and "clunking" during directional changes. That being said it does change position easily as planed and locks in securely. 136267

Arrived on time service was incredible, I've been waiting for a long time to get a quality hitch with a two and one-half inch receiver and this product fits the bill. I am a commercial tower and appreciate good quality. 174712

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
This is the best, most secure, adjustable double ball hitch on the market and I have looked at them all. As soon as my neighbor saw it he ordered one too. etrailer.com by far had the best price 183948

Looks like it's very well built...installed on truck...seems very loose and sloppy inside housing,seems to lock in place but still loose and noisey...will see what happens when i tow boat... 231117
Love this hitch it is my second one. the first one was for a 2" hitch but i bought a bigger truck with a class V hitch so i had to buy a new one. highly recommend it! 124118
by: Shannon W02/10/2015

A bit concerned that the product is aluminum but working well thus far. Chrome came off the ball on the first trip. Overall, good product. 252433
by: Bill V.E.09/10/2013
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
great looking and functional hitch. a lil pricy but nice. looks too good to use. like the 1 key fits both. no extra pins to keep up with. 284492

Trailer Hitch Work well in the new 2011 F-350 hitch, Hopefully the locks won't freeze up, would like to have a option without the locks. 4358
Only had it one day and only used it 1 time. Seems nice and works fine. The cost of $265 is pretty high, but it is very heavy weight!! 111552
Looks good and fits good in the bigger hitch receiver, i would prefer it to be a tighter fit like the smaller hitches but it works. 65529
Great product. It was ordered on Sunday night and arrived on Wednesday. I hauled my 5x8 then switched the ball for my 28 ft camper. 193999
