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 - BWTS20040C Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the B & W Chrome Tow and Stow 2-Ball Mount for two and a half inch hitch. Has a seven inch drop, and a seven and a half inch rise, with a 14,500 pound maximum capacity. Now this ball mount with the built-in hitch balls right here will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion right here is what'll slide in to your two and half inch hitch receiver, and the balls would provide your connection point for your trailer coupler.If you notice, this one comes with the two different size hitch balls, the two inch and the two and five-sixteenths, so it'll let you tow trailers with different coupler sizes, and it's pretty easy to switch the balls. All you have to do is simply just remove the pin right here. Take the clip off, slide the pin out, and your ball will rotate.

There's your two inch right now. If you flip it around, there's your two and five-sixteenths. So it's pretty simple just to switch whichever size ball you need, and find the right one, put your pin right back in, take your clip, and slide it through there to hold it into place.Also, if you notice it does have adjustable height, which will let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. Basically, you just slide your ball mount up or down along this shank here, and then secure it in place with the included pins and clips. The holes are one and three-eighths inches from center to center, so it'll give you incremental height adjustment of one and three-eighths inches.

The maximum drop on this, which is in this position right now, it's measured from the top of the shank to the top of the platform here. Seven inches drop. You flip it around and you want to use it in the rise position like that. Measured from here to here would be seven and a half inches for maximum rise.So what I want to do now is we're just going to pull the clips out, and then slide both pins out. And we have both pins out.

You can see that you can slide this to whatever position you need to keep your towing, when you're towing your vehicle, or you're towing your trailer level. Also, one of the main features it offers is the stowable design, and this will let you store the ball and the mounting platform underneath your vehicle, or underneath the hitch out of the way, so you don't run into it. Just like we did here, you remove the pins and clips, and then you just flip this around, and it stays on there, and then you line it up with the hole you want it in. Take your pins and clips. Slide them in just like that, and then put your clips on and you'll see this will all be out of the way.

This is all that you'll see at the back of your truck.And then to flip it back, you just pull the pins and clips out. Flip it around, and then put it in whatever position you need. Also, if you notice there's a slot right over here. Right here on the adjustment height and one over here, and what's nice about this, this will ensure that your ball mount platform right here and balls, cannot be removed when this tow and stow is installed in your hitch. Once this is installed in your hitch, they can't lift this up and slide it out to remove it, so it has to come out.We do sell . there's no additional locks required to prevent the platform and balls from being removed, but for right here, it does require a hitch pinning clip or a hitch lock, which we do sell separately on our website. Uses a five-eighths inch diameter pin, and it has two pin holes so you just choose the correct holes that'll line up in your hitch. So if you do lock this in, there's no way they can get your ball platform off.Now this is a durable steel construction with high yield tubing. Gives you superior strength. The finish on it you can see is very nice dual process chrome plating on the shank and the balls. Provides a nice excellent rust resistance. The pins themselves, they are stainless steel pins. They get a very sturdy and rust proof, and then your clips, you just clip them on to hold it into place.Now these parts are made in the USA. A few spec's on this again. It is designed to fit into a two and a half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitch receiver. The gross towing weight and the tongue weight capacity will depend on the size ball you use. If you use the two inch ball, like it is right now, it gives you 7,500 pounds gross towing weight capacity, and about 750 pounds tongue weight. If you use the bigger ball, the two and five-sixteenths size, it's going to give you the 14,500 pounds gross towing weight, and a 1,450 tongue weight capacity.And the last thing I just want to let you know is the distance from the center of the hitch pin holes right here to the center of the hitch ball. If you measure from the pin that's closest to the ball, from the center to there is going to be nine and a quarter inches. From the furthest one from the ball, from the center to center, is going to be ten and three-eighths inches.But that should do it for the review on the B & W Chrome Tow and Stow 2-Ball Mount for a two and a half inch hitch. Seven inch drop. Seven and a half inch rise, and a 14,500 pound capacity.

The service and delivery time was top notch and excellent.......only a couple of days to delivery. This hitch is something else.........total quality and extremely well made. It is for my 2019 Ford F250 Superduty. I looked at both the standard black hitch and this chrome hitch. For the small price difference it was a great buy. The chrome is top notch and all the important metal surfaces are polished extremely well. With the ball tucked away under the hitch, it looks and works great.

Exactly what I needed for my 2018 Ford F-150 4x4. I have a boat and a 10’ cargo trailer with a drop axle. I can raise it up for my boat and lower it for my cargo trailer. I can also leave it on in the stow position and park my truck in my garage! 596264

I spent a lot of time online looking for a nice looking but durable ball hitch for my F150. After seeing this one I spoke with your customer service to get the correct drop for my truck since it has a 6" lift and 35" tires. I was a machinist for 35 years and know quality work when I see it. This product exceeded my expectations as did the customer service. 659912

Review from a similar B and W Chrome Tow and Stow in Ball Mounts


Bought this for my 2008 F350 SRW diesel. All I could say after taking this hitch out of the box is “Holy Crap” . I’m blown away over the quality of this hitch. I never thought i’d say this about a hitch, but It really is a thing of beauty. Nice to buy a product engineered and built in the US. Just received it yesterday so I didn’t get a chance to use it yet, but appears to be worth every penny. Also love the fact that it stows out of the way when not in use- no more busted ankles. I can also retire my collection of different drop/ball hitch combos, all of which vary based on what I’m towing. This one replaces them all and won’t leave my receiver. If you’re trying to decide on a hitch, just spend the money and buy this- you won’t be disappointed and it looks like it will last a lifetime. 496383

Review from a similar B and W Chrome Tow and Stow in Ball Mounts


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

Review from a similar B and W Chrome Tow and Stow in Ball Mounts


This is the trailer hitch I have ever seen. It is heavy and feels indestructible. The shiny chrome one looks great also. I'm towing a travel trailer with it that is 900 lbs tongue weight and it handles it great. It is so convenient to have all 3 sizes hitch balls available, although I will seldom use the 1 7/8 hitch ball. The store feature behind the hitch is very handy to help save your shins also. Highly recommend!!! 691485

Hitch arrived in a very heavy duty box in 2 days from order! I could not be happier with the quality of the hitch and the heavy duty structure of it. I frequently tow 14,500 gvw and this hitch will do the job while allowing me to quickly change it from the large 2-5/16 ball to the 2 inch to trailer my smaller units. etrailer experience is first rate from ordering to delivery to follow up. I will definitely recommend. 689958
