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.

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

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

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

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





Comments

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.

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

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 .

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.

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 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.

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

Nice ball mount! Looks great and functions nicely. The 2 1/2" adapter does not have the "anti rattle" feature; not a big deal. The chrome plating on the ball is very thin and will easily scratch. If keeping the appearance looking new is important to you make sure you you keep all mating surfaces clean and greased. I would also give serious consideration and opt for the stainless ball option if I where to purchase again. Over all, its the cleanest and best looking mount out there. The locking feature is fantastic. The folks at Etrailer are great! 36232

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





Comments

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.

Satisfied Received helpful advice, order was taken efficiently and product arrived as promised. Probably a much nicer mount than I need, but I was 5 hours from my truck, the trailer was being built, and I was not sure how much drop would be needed. This one covers a wide range, is attractive, easy to use, and has a convenient locking feature. May or may not need the smaller ball, but like knowing it's there just in case. And it all looks good pulling a Kubota tractor on a 22' trailer. 3683

Quality product which has a great locking mechanism as the pins lock into the receiver tube from the inside, no way someone can break the pins with a hammer as they could with an external lock. Also it is super fast and easy to adjust the height and switch ball sizes. I needed a ball mount that could support at least a 1000lb tongue weight with a 9" drop for the work trailer and a 6" drop for the boat trailer, this product fit that need perfectly. 34949

I agree with all, this product is built solid. Looked great out the box and worked great on the first pull. However, upon completing that first pull of less then 10 miles I found that the crome had been worn off the ball. This does not affect the operation it just means that it is no longer so great looking. Thought the crome would last longer!! 32530

Did you put adequate grease on the ball?

You are right, greasing the ball will help with the chrome wear. Of course over time, due to the nature of the system, that chrome will wear.

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

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

The hitch is very versatile for multiple trailer heights. The quality of finish is very good. The only drawback is there is up and down play in the receiver were the hitch locks in. This causes some hitch noise when braking due to the play. Locking feature means no theft. Over all a very good buy and worth the extra price 91819

  • 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...

  • Difference Between the Diversi-Tech # DTALBM6625 and # DTALBM6625-2S
  • The only difference between the two ball mounts is that the trailer ball assembly of the # DTALBM6625-2S is stainless steel, while the ball assembly of the # DTALBM6625 is chrome plated steel. The stainless steel trailer ball assembly will be more corrosion resistant over time. Once the chrome plating of the ball assembly of the # DTALBM6625 is worn away, the assembly will be susceptible to corrosion. If you plan on using the ball mount quite a bit, you might want to go with the # DTALBM6625-2S. Also...

  • 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.

  • Will 2008 Chevy Truck OEM Hitch Reducer Work on Diversi-Tech Ball Mount, # DTALBM6600,
  • On the Diversi-Tech Ball Mount, # DTALBM6600, you would need to use the Diversi-Tech 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch Adapter Kit for DTLBM and DTALBM Series Locking Ball mounts, # DTADP35, on your 2008 Chevy Truck. The adapter kit comes with its own lock, so you would have a key that fits the adapter and a key that fits the ball mount. The reducer that came with your truck will not work because the pins on the ball mount will not extend enough into the reducer to attach properly. I would recommend...

  • 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...

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount That Reduces Rattle In 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
  • I spoke with my contact at Diversi-Tech about the adjustable ball-mounts that fit a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening. All of the 2-1/2 inch adjustable ball-mounts we carry have an adapter attached. 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...

  • 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...

  • Availability of Replacement Balls for Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mounts
  • According to my Diversi-Tech representative, the trailer balls on the # DTALBM6625 are replaceable but the procedure is pretty complicated, involving removing the lock cylinder, and the springs and pin that hold the ball assembly onto the adjustable shank. If this is something you were considering attempting, my Diversi-Tech rep recommended having you call them directly at 800-950-0141 so they can walk you through the process. The process for the non-locking model is much simpler....

  • Comparing the Weight Capacities of Diversi-Tech Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mounts
  • The Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6625-3S, uses stainless steel balls. The stainless balls can handle more weight than the same size chrome ball. This is why # DTALBM6625-3S can handle up to 12,000 pounds when used with the 2-5/16 inch ball.
