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 - BWTS20049C Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount. Now this ball mount is designed to fit into a two and a half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitch receiver. It offers a maximum gross towing weight capacity of 14,500 pounds and a maximum tongue weight capacity of 1,450 pounds. As you can see, the ball mount offers adjustability and a multi-ball design, so it has the built-in hitch balls, which let you hook up to your trailer from the tow vehicle, so the shank slides into the receiver tube of your hitch on the vehicle, and then the hitch balls provide the connection point for your trailer's coupler.It also features a stowable design, so one of the most awkward things about having a ball mount installed at the back of the vehicle is when you don't have your trailer connected to the hitch balls. You have this whole platform area sticking out. Somebody can easily run into or another vehicle could hit and cause some damage, so what B&W did is they actually created a stowable design, which lets you store the ball and the mounting platform on the reverse side of the shank, which should actually be underneath the hitch of the vehicle.In order to move it to a stowed position, all you have to do is pull out two pins and two clips.

Then this actually swivels, so you can rotate it up. It flips on the backside here, and then you can stow it in this position by reinstalling the pins and clips. It's a really neat design. It also adds a very clean, finished look at the back of your vehicle whenever you're not connected to a trailer. Also, since I have the pins and clips removed, I do want to show you ...

This is exactly how you would make your adjustments as well, so the adjustable height design lets you tow trailers of different heights using the same vehicle. That's going to help ensure that the ball height is as level as possible with the trailer's coupler height. These holes along the shank are separated on the center by one and three eighths of an inch, so that's your incremental height adjustment.Once you find the height that you need for your application, line up the pinholes and secure the platform in place with the included pins and clips. Now you can use this in either the drop or rise position. If you're using it in the rise position, your maximum rise is seven and a half inches.

In the drop position with it at the lowest setting, maximum drop is seven inches. That measurement is taken from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of the ball platform, which will be right here at the base of the actual hitch ball. When you're ready to switch between the differently sized hitch balls, all you have to do, again it's really simple, pull out another pin and clip. You can take this and you can rotate it to whatever hitch ball you need to use for your towing application, so you have a one and seven eighth inch ball, a two inch ball, and a two and five sixteenth inch ball to choose from.Then once you have the ball pick you need, secure it in that position by reinstalling your pin and clip. Now when it comes to the construction, we're looking at a very durable steel construction with dual process chrome plating.

Gives a really nice look. It's also rust and corrosion resistant. The stainless steel pins create sturdy, rust-proof connections. To secure this inside your hitch, you will need a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock. That is sold separately, and if you do need one, you can check out some options here at etrailer.com. The pinholes on this unit will accept a standard five eighth inch diameter pin.A few measurements I want to go over with you real quick. I took a measurement of the distance from the center of each pinhole to the center of the hitch balls. The closest one, center on center, was nine and one quarter inches at a straight line measurement. Then this one to the center of the hitch balls was 10 and three eighths inches. When you're using the one and seven eighth inch ball, your gross towing weight is 3,500 pounds. When you're using the two inch ball, it's 7,500 pounds, and when you're using the two and five 16th inch ball, it's 14,500 pounds.The product is made in the USA and covered with a limited lifetime warranty. That's going to do it for today's look at the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for two and a half inch hitches.

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

Ask the Experts about this B and W Ball Mounts

  • Best B&W Tow & Stow for a 2018 Ford F-350
    In order to find out how much of a drop you need to look for in a ball mount, you will need to measure from the ground to the top of the inside edge on your trailer hitch and then from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler on your trailer while level. If you subtract the trailer height measurement from the hitch that will give you the amount of drop you need to look for in a ball mount. I recommend doing this for both trailers.
