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.

Just installed on my f250. I love it! I ordered the 7.5 inch drop with the 3 different trailer ball sizes. Super simple. I recommend getting the silencer pad as well as the locking pin. Super fast shipping and super fast responses from the team. They go above and beyond. Will be towing a car trailer with a dodge 2500 on it this weekend so it came at a perfect time. PS: I have a leveled 2016 F250 on 35x11.50’s. The 7.5 inch drop may be a little bit over kill. Any one looking that has the same truck could probably get by with a 4.5 inch drop.

- BWTS20049B

The hitch was delivered very quickly. etrailer kept us informed as to when the hitch would ship. It even shipped earlier than expected! My husband is VERY satisfied with this purchase. We are moving and the hitch my husband had before was not very sturdy and he was afraid it would break with the load. With this heavy-duty hitch, we'll have no issues with pulling any load.

- BWTS20049B

I really like this hitch. I have four different trailers with different tongue heights and all have different size balls. This hitch took care of all of them. Also, stayed in my receiver all winter and the finish is still really nice! The largest trailer I have towed so far is a 10K car trailer, but if I need gravel I plan to tow a 12K+ dump trailer. I'm sure this hitch will handle it.

Question: What is the best way to ship B&W hitches? Not an easy decision. Shipping this 110 lb. metal hitch via UPS in a cardboard box... you can only imagine what the box will look like when it arrives at it's destination. Now it's a metal hitch, so not much can happen to it, however, it looked like it went through WW III when it arrived today. I don't have an answer for you, however, a thought may be to have a packaging engineer take another look at how to best package these for shipping via UPS. Thank you.

- BWTS20049B

Definitely one of the best trailer hitches I've used. Steel construction, so you never have any issues with with the lights not working; due to a bad ground through the hitch, like some aluminum hitches I've used. All the adjustments use cotter pins instead of some sort of key configuration that gets bound up with salt or sand. Overall very happy with this hitch, and would definitely recommend it. Between my dad and I this is the third B and W 3 ball hitch, we've bought.

- BWTS20049B

Great products and Justin B. Was very helpful to fit my 2021 F-250 Super Duty with the perfect hitch.

- BWTS20049B

I could not be any HAPPIER with this tow and stow. I pull multiple types of trailers, boat, horse for my daughter, different supply types of trailers for friends. This hitch makes it fast and easy!!! If I had the option of 10 stars I would give it 10!!!

- BWTS20049B

Very nice hitch... great quality, very sturdy and super convenient not having to rotate hitches for various ball sizes. The hitch was delivered on time and in it's original B&W box designed to protect it. The folks from etrailer informed me when it shipped and monitored until it was delivered. Highly suggest a locking hitch pin for this product, caught my neighbor trying to steal it first day ;-)

- BWTS20049B

Made in USA WITH USA MATERIALS,tow and stow it's simply amazing, easy to adjust to the height you want and to stow away. Is It expensive? Depends on your point of view, to me it is worth every penny and the customer service is rally good, let's not even talk about the warranty, but just in case you need it, they have your back. - Made in USA - Excellent customer service - Amazing warranty

- BWTS20049B

B&W makes a great product, I’ve had the same hitch but with the 2 inch shank for years, finally decided I would like the option for a little more drop so figured why not go ahead and get the 2.5 inch shank model. I’m sure I’ll just as pleased with this one as I was with the last. Etrailer had the best price considering the free shipping and I received my hitch in less than a week. I will buy from them again for sure.

- BWTS20049B

Another very solid and well built item from B&W. Put into a 2.5” receiver on a 2018 Ram 2500 with stock suspension and tires. The 7” drop was perfect for all my applications and having the convenience of all three ball sizes makes it nice. Only regret I have it not buying the BOLT locking hitch pin at the same time I bought this. The B&W and BOLT pin go together like peas and carrots.

- BWTS20049B

I love this hitch! I can go from my tool trailer to the dump trailer to my jet skis and I don’t have to get in the tool box to bet them just pull the pin and swivel the ball. I love this hitch!! Thank you!

- BWTS20049B

Starting with 4 stars because I have only had the hitch for about 3 hours. 1. I was impressed with the packaging that actually arrived in good condition, protected the hitch and even had hand holes in the box to make lifting it easier, and all of it was cardboard that can be easily recycled. 2. I was flipping through the small pamphlet that came with it and I asked my self “wonder what they recommend to keep it lubed up” and surprise there’s a small packet of white lithium grease stuck inside the pamphlet and on the last page a B&W bumper sticker. 3. Hitch is really nice quality material and the coating and chrome finish is flawless. I’m a welder (20yrs) and even the welds that are on the triple ball are top notch. If the Hitch is put together as well as it looks and is as good as the packaging I don’t think I have much to worry about. But I totally forgot to get a locking hitch pin when I ordered it. Lol More to come as I use it for towing the Boy Scout Trailer for camping this season. But I have no concerns that it’s up to the challenge.

Very Pleased. I tow stuff for people all around town and my kids are in Scout so I’m towing those trailers too. It’s great having everything I need in one place with no concern about something being take because it’s all together. Would definitely recommend.

I pull a wide variety of equipment as well as being a uhaul dealer. I have used all three options of ball size since purchasing the unit and I have enjoyed being able to do this without changing the hitch in the receiver. I also love being able to tuck the unit up behind the drop face to keep the shin bangers out of the way when not being used.

- BWTS20049B

Very solid built unit. Easy to adjust and does not appear to have any rattling. Being able to stow it underneath and leave it in hitch prevents busting shin or knee on it when walking behind the truck. Best thing is unit is made in USA. This unit has 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" couplers so it should handle anything I need to pull.

- BWTS20049B

This product is exactly what I was looking for and I didn’t think anyone made it, but etrailer had it! This B&W product is a well manufactured piece of equipment and it’s even better than I thought. I have a 2-1/2” receiver on my 2013 f 350 and it fits perfectly and looks great. The quality of the welds and of each component of the mount is excellent. The ground clearance with the mount in the down direction is about 9” on my truck with no load in the bed or trailer attached. Some f 350s I’ve seen are lower than mine, so the 4-1/2” drop option might work better for lower trucks. Good luck and happy towing! Another happy customer to etrailer, thanks guys!

- BWTS20049B

Best hitch I've ever bought. No need to switch hitches for different balls or trailer heights. Doesn't rattle around. Great hitch! No more bruised shins either. lol

Has been on my truck since the day I bought it a year ago. Looks like new still. I keep the ball flipped to the front so I dont bash my shins. Works for every one of my trailers. Great product

I initially thought maybe eTrailer was just a "landing page" for trailer tow products that just was ranked higher in the "search chain" than anybody else. You know those sites that consume your time when you are trying to legitimately find and order a product. BUT . . . I was pleasantly surprised to find that my item was IN STOCK and when I ordered it got to my house BLAZINGLY fast! Good communications from order to shipment! I definitely will order more items from you and soon!

- BWTS20049B

After a full year of moderate to heavy use, this thing is great. It's practical, and I can switch between positions and balls quickly when needed. There is some notable rusting around the throat that slides into the reciever. Only visible when removed. I don't suspect any amount of powder coating could prevent that in such a high friction area. Stainless pins are fantastic, no rust. The powder coating every where else looks as good as new. My only regret is not buying sooner.

- BWTS20049B

Nice hitch. Unboxed and installed with 2 silencer pads and a receiver lock pin, greased it up with the included lithium grease, and was ready to go in less than 2 minutes. The hideaway feature is slick and only takes a few seconds to switch.

- BWTS20049B

Works Amazing, Build Quality is also Premium, While I understand it is pricey just remember this is 100% made in America using 100% American Materials, So when you buy this you are supporting our country directly and it shows in the craftsman ship. Would buy again for sure, just doubt I'll have to due to the quality

- BWTS20049B

Very quick shipment from etrailer.com. Awesome product (best ever), and I’ve had a bunch over the years. Extremely sturdy, with top quality workmanship, and a very mindful design. I have a big camper, large horse trailer, and utility trailer. I never have to hassle with changing balls again, and can tow them all (fully loaded) with great confidence.

Fantastic hitch. Likely the best on the market, especially when price is a consideration. It surpassed my expectations, and probably will be the only one I’ll ever need.
Scott L - 09/06/2020

- BWTS20049B

Well made. Finish looks great. FYI it doesn't come with a reciever pin. Just the right amount of drop for my 2019 Ram 2500. It tucks up underneath for low profile storage without issue. Cons: price is a bit steep compared to some other brands. Especially since it doesn't include the reciever pin.

- BWTS20049B

This ball hitch is great. It let's me not worry if I have the right ball for any of my several trailers. And the "Stow" feature surely saves my shins.

- BWTS20049B

Love the "Stow and Go" no more busted shins with the balls tucked up under the bumper. Switching the ball size is quick and easy. American Made and much heavier than I expected with I went to pick it up. Perfect fit on my 2015 Ram and love that it is 2 1/2" ball mount so I don't need the adapter.

  • Will B&W Tow & Stow Fit with Towtector on a 2019 Ford F-250
    It depends on the B&W Tow & Stow that you use, but generally speaking you will have enough room as the Towtector mud flaps need 1-1/2" of the shank. For example, the Tow & Stow # BWTS20049B fits just fine with the Rock Tamers # ERT00110 which need 1" of room on the shank. I actually had a chance to install this combo on a 2020 Ford F-250 and there would have been enough room for an extra 1/2".

    The best option for larger trucks is without a doubt an adjustable ball mount that way you aren't stuck with a fixed ball mount that only works on certain trailers.

The Rock Tamers mounting bracket needs this inch of space to install properly. You can refer to the linked diagram to see how the mud flaps mount.

I checked to see if B&W perhaps offered a 2 inch shank, but unfortunately they do not. You'd be best off selling your # BWTS20049B Tow & Stow and using the proceeds toward one for a 2 inch hitch. If you would be interested in a replacement that offers the same 7 inch drop/7-1/2 inch rise as the one you currently have, you could use part # BWTS10049B. However, you'll...

  • Why Do Weight Ratings of 2-Inch Hitch Balls Vary Between Fixed and Adjustable Types
    The B&W Tow & Stow Adjustable 3-Ball Mount # BWTS20049B has a 2-inch ball rated for 7500-lbs.

All of our standard 2-inch hitch balls are shown on the linked page. These carry class ratings from Class I all the way up to Class V, as with the Curt ball # A-90. The lower ratings with any adjustable multi-ball type ball mount result from the...

    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS20049B referenced in your question has a maximum drop or rise of 7-1/2 inches. It features incremental height adjustments between those two maximums.

  • Appearance of B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount BWTS20049B
    On the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS20049B their logo is fairly subdued, being a light grey. It makes it easy to see the brand but it does not "scream" it. When we photograph items for our website it is sometimes necessary to use a dulling spray to reduce glare and reflections from the lights in our photo studio. This is especially true with items that are chrome-finished and/or bright polished, such as hitch balls. This treatment provides a better photo but does slightly dull the...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch on 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    The ball mount I highly recommend for your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty that has a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver like the Curt # C15802 is the B&W Tow & Stow because of its high quality, stow-away design, and the fact it protects the ball mount platform from theft. The hitch ball platform of this mount actually flips underneath the shank to face your truck, saving you from accidentally slamming your leg into it when walking behind your F-250.

  • Fit of B&W Silencer Pad for Tow & Stow Ball Mounts
    The B&W silencer pad, part # BWTS35025, fits all of the 2-1/2 inch B&W Tow & Stow ball mounts, like part # BWTS20049B as an example.
