The B&W Tow & Stow adjustable ball mount lets you tow a variety of trailers with different tongue heights. Having a 1-7/8" ball, a 2" ball and a 2-5/16" ball allows for even more versatility, making this the ultimate go-to ball mount if you own multiple trailers.


Easily Adjusts and Stows

B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount Operation

To switch the hitch ball, simply remove the pin holding the balls in place and rotate the entire block that the balls are mounted on until the ball you want to use is on top. Then replace the pin to secure the block in place.


Adjusting the height of the ball is just as easy. Remove the pins holding the ball mount platform in place and slide the platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Once you have found the correct height, reinsert the pins and replace the clips.


When you're not towing, you can flip the ball mount platform around and stow it beneath your hitch so that you won't bang your shins. Just remove the pins to slide the ball platform down along the channel and up the back side so that the hitch balls face towards your vehicle. Then replace the pins.


Built-In Anti-Theft System

The Tow & Stow ball mount features a channel that runs along both sides of the shank. This channel not only allows you to slide the ball mount platform up and down to adjust the ball height, but it also prevents removal of the platform when the ball mount is installed, which will help prevent theft of your trailer.


Single Dimensions

A slot is cut into the adjustment channel near the top of the shank. To remove the ball mount platform from the shank you will need to remove the entire ball mount from your hitch. Then remove the pins that hold the platform in place. Flip the platform around to the stowed position on the rear of the shank, and then slide it up until the center pin lines up with the slot in the shank. Pull the platform out towards the rear of the shank until the pin pops out of the adjustment channel.


When the Tow & Stow is secured in your hitch receiver, you will not be able to remove the ball mount platform. This is because the slot in the shank is positioned in such a way that the collar on your hitch will block the pin on the platform from being able to leave the channel. Even if the pins holding the ball mount platform in place are removed, the platform will still be confined to this channel. So, as long as a hitch lock is used to secure the entire ball mount in your hitch receiver, and a coupler lock is used to prevent your trailer's coupler from being disengaged from the ball, your trailer will be secure.

Video Transcript for B and W Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - BWTS10048C Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number BWTS10048C. This is the B and W Tow and Stow 3-Ball Mount. This is designed to fit a 2 x 2 inch trailer hitch. If were at a 5- inch drop with a drop with a 5 1/2 inch rise and its rated at 10,000 pounds. This ball mount with a built in hitch ball lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank slides into the receiver tube of your hitch, and then the hitch balls provide good connection points for your trailer coupler.

One of the great features of this ball mount is that it actually has a stowable design.To take advantage of that we pull the back two pins, rotate the mount under, and secure it in place by reinstalling the two pins, and securing it with the clips on the other side. Now this gives us that nice flush look that we're looking for at the back of our tow vehicle. It also takes our ball platform and moves it out of the way. We'll go ahead and bring this back around. As you can see, this is fully adjustable as we move it up and down the shank.

Once we have the desired height that we looking for to best suit our towing application, we can reinsert our pins and secure it with the clips.The adjustable height is a great feature to have because its going to let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. It also has three different size hitch balls that lets you tow trailers with different coupler sizes. To switch between the different size hitch balls, we pull the pin and clip here at the front, and then we can rotate as necessary, to find the ball that we need for our towing application. Once we find the right one, we just reinsert the pin and clip to secure it in place. This mount has dual process chrome plating on the shank and the hitch balls that provides excellent rust resistance.The pins come from a stainless steel so those create sturdy rust-proof connections.

The durable steel construction with the high-yield tubing offers superior strength. Now this does require a hitch pin and clip, or a hitch lock, and these are sold separately. You can refer to this products product page under related items to view those products. This is designed to work with a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. When using the 1 7/8 inch ball youre going to have a gross towing weight of 3500 pounds.

When using the 2 inch ball, thats going to increase to 7500 pounds and the 2 5/16 inch ball, is going to give you a gross towing weight of 10,000 pounds. A couple of measurements I want to go over real quick. We actually have two different hitch pin-hole locations to best suit your towing application or one of these holes may give you more clearance so that you can use this in a stowed position. These are here totally for your convenience. From the center of the hitch pin hole thats closest to the hitch ball, so we're measuring from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of our hitch ball, we get 9 1/4 inches. From the other hitch pin hole to the center of our hitch ball, we have a measurement of 10 3/8 of an inch. With this in the drop position at its lowest setting it gives us a maximum drop of 5 inches, and if we flip this over to the rise position within its highest setting, its going to give us that rise of 5 1/2 inches. Again, this does adjust in increments of one inch. Thats going to complete today's review of part number BWTS10048C. Thats the B and W Tow and Stow 3-Ball Mount, rated at 10,000 pounds. .

I've always got a different trailer hooked up to my rig and this is the only hitch you will ever need! Extremely smooth operation, beautiful finish and quality. I'd say I'll buy another when needed, but you can tell this thing will last forever. Great service and shipping from etrailer!! 231007

A great product. Looks good on the back of my truck. It is very heavy and appears very well built. It would be nice if the unit had the main bar 4" down and 1" above the main shank or any combination similar giving 1" on the short side of the shank. In my case I would like the ability to turn the ball base up but have the ability to have the ball 1" below the shank. The other improvement would be locking clips for the pins. 357372
