Video Transcript for Fastway Hitch Ball FA82-00-3216 Review

Today, were looking at Part Number FA82-00-3216. This is the trailer hitch ball cover with a tether. Its made for 2-5/6-inch ball and its manufacture by Fastway in the United States. This will help you shield your ball from the elements when you're not towing and it keeps grease from going all over the place. It keeps the grease on the ball where it belongs, so you always want to keep your ball greased.Slide the tether over the ball. Now, keep in mind that this ball is not greased.

Its going to be a little bit more difficult to do the sliding, but it should be a snap once the ball is greased. There we go. The cover itself has its tabs and inside, I don't know if you can see it, but it has sturdy fins. It has several of those around the circumference. The tabs and the fins will help to keep the grease on the ball.You just slip this over the ball when you're not towing.

Again, let me say that its easier once the ball is greased and thatll keep grease in, dirt, bugs and grime out. Youll have a nice clean ball thats for use whenever you're ready to tow.The tether will keep it from getting lost. When you are towing, you just take the cap off, but leave the tether on, so it wont get lost. And there you have it for Part Number FA82-00-3216, the Fastway Trailer Hitch Ball Cover with a Tether made for balls that are 2-5/6 inches.

Exactly what I have been looking for! Exactly as described and has the great advantage of not pushing all of the grease off the ball each time plus the tether ring is a real plus. Highly recommend!! 364409

Most hitch ball covers are designed by people who do not know how their product should work. Using other covers with a tight fit bottom simply wipes the grease off of the ball and onto the bottom of the cover making more of a mess, and where do you store it? Someone who designed this cover actually took the time to realize what is required and maybe used the product. 678479



- FA82-00-3216
by:

Fastway ball covers fit well and the tether is a great idea, don't have to find something to wrap it in and a place to store it until your done towing. The ball mount bag is another great idea, but use the ball cover so you don't get grease inside the bag. 715069



- FA82-00-3216

Great product. The only ball cover I know of that does not remove the grease on the ball. Also, being rubber not PVC could weather does not affect its flexibility. I have the same comments for all three sizes. 588936



- FA82-00-3216

The best ball cover I have seen and I will order a few more in the future for my 2" balls, which this also fits. Most of the covers are a flexible plastic and this one is more like rubber. I purchased this one solely due to the retention strap so the cover stays with the ball in use or in storage. This cover fits my 2 5/16" balls snugly and my 2" balls okay. Inside the cover where it slips over the ball, there are two methods of keeping the cover on the ball; 1) three vertical ribs from bottom to top and 2) five petals spread around the bottom. On my 2 5/16" balls, the petals contact the grease as it slides over the balls and tends to spread a small amount of grease onto the ball mount assembly, which just creates more of a potential, future mess possibly, in my storage bag. I removed the petals and the cover still fits well in a static test. Time will tell how this mod works in practice going down the road with the cover in place over the ball, which I think the petals are designed to help retain. I will not remove the petals on the balls for my weight distributing head assembly since that is not stored in a bag. 226195

This really kept the grease off me! Saved some clothes! Make sure you slip it off before you start to back the truck up to the tongue or the tongue will put cuts in it! 610862

This is the only hitch cover I could find that had an attachment ring. In my opinion they are useless without it. Thanks for providing this 715954

just what I needed. 694280



- FA82-00-3216

Great product. Used both the 2 inch and 2 5/16 to cover balls that were greased. The design works, staying on the ball and not removing the grease when taking them off and on. 679971

The cap fits just fine, should do an excellent job of keeping dirt and rain out of plug. It's too bad the cat got to it before I had a chance to install it, and chewed the tether ring in two. Have not used ball cover yet but fits well. 569044

Nice cap. It will do the job. I like it because it looks like it will leave more grease on the ball over other designs. Especially after I get done modifying it. 428312

Ask the Experts about this Fastway Accessories and Parts

  • Rubber Hitch Ball Cover Recommendation for 2-5/16 inch Hitch Ball
    For a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball we do have rubber hitch covers like the Fastway part # FA82-00-3216 which would work well. The cover has a tether on it as well that keeps it from getting lost when there is a trailer hooked up to it.

  • Would the Hitch Ball Cover fit on the Gooseneck Ball of a B and W Gooseneck Hitch Stowed
    Yes, the Hitch Ball Cover # FA82-00-3216 would fit on the ball of a B and W Turnover Gooseneck Hitch with the hitch ball up. We haven't ever tested it with the hitch ball down and neither has either manufacturer so I can't confirm.

  • Ways to Prevent Rust on Interchangeable Hitch Ball Sets
    Yes, I am sure that there are many people out there with your similar concerns. Since an interchangeable hitch ball set like part # 63803 has the quick-release mechanism on the top of the ball, it is very possible for water to get in here. In an effort to prevent this, we recommend doing just as you said, keep things greased with a light weight oil and stored when not in use. As for using a cover, the good news about a cover is that it will prevent the ball from direct contact with...

  • Should the Hitch Ball on a Weight Distribution System Be Greased
    Yes, you should absolutely be using some grease on the top of your hitch ball, the White Grease Hitch Ball Lube part # 58117 in particular which is formulated specifically to reduce friction which is what is causing the chrome coating to wear off. The absence of this chrome coating is then going to allow for rust to occur therefore, I recommend you either cover the hitch ball while not in use with the Fastway Trailer Hitch Ball Cover part # FA82-00-3216 or you can replace it. For replacement,...

  • Availability of Rubber Cover that fits Over Entire Hitch Ball
    We have covers that will fit over the entire hitch ball, though at present we do not have covers that will fit over the mount. The mount will be powder coated or aluminum in some cases so they should resist rust without issue. If your hitch ball has a 2-5/16 inch diameter we have # FA82-00-3216. For a 1-7/8 inch and 2 inch diameter hitch ball there is # 42250. These units slide nicely over the ball and covers the whole thing. The fit is good and it stays on until you take it off. If...

  • Can Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6800 withstand Indiana Winters
    I would always recommend storing a ball mount of any type and in any geographic location because I personally hate bumping by shins or knees on them! I have also seen some get corroded and stuck in the hitch receiver so that is another reason to take it out when not in use. The outer parts of the Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6800, will withstand those harsh Indiana winters, salt brine, debris, and all. The unit is made of aluminum so it is strong and corrosion...
