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 - BWTS30049B Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the B&W Tow and Stow 3 inch ball mount for three inch hitches. This ball mount with the built in hitch balls lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank slides into the receive tube of your hitch, and then the hitch balls provide the connection points for the trailer coupler.It can be used in either the drop or rise positions, and it features a stowable design that lets you store the balls of the mountain platform underneath the receive tube of your hitch from the reverse side here of the adjustable portion of the unit.To move it to the stowed position, you just need to remove these two pins and clips, and then it has a built in channel right here, which allows this unit to pivot. So you lift up, and then it rotates and stores on the reverse side of the unit. Now with it in this position, you can see that it creates a really nice flush design at the back of the vehicle. And it takes those hitch balls and moves them out of the way so that way when you're walking around the back of the vehicle, you don't have to worry about accidentally running into that and hurting your legs.Another neat feature is the adjustable height design.

This lets you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. Also allows you to make sure the towing setup is as level as possible. So again, you remove those two pins and clips, and then you can slide the mount up or down anywhere along that shank. Once you have the height that you need for your application, simply take the pins, feed them through, you do need to make sure that both of them are engaged through the hole. And then you place the clips here on the other side.Now I did point out that it has a slot right here in the shank.

This ensures that the ball mount platform can't be removed when the Tow and Stow is installed in the hitch. So there's no additional locks required to prevent the platform and the hitch balls from being removed. It does have three differently sized hitch balls on the unit, so that's going to let you tow trailers with different coupler sizes.You have a one and seven eighth inch, a two inch, and a two and five sixteenth inch ball. To switch between the hitch balls, you simply remove this pin and clip, and then this rotates. So that way you can get to the one that you need for your application.

And then once you have the one you need, you take in the pin and simply secure it with the clip on the other side.Now the hitch balls are steel, and they feature dual processed chrome plating. Provides excellent rust resistance, the rest of the unit has a black powder coated finish on it to resist rust and corrosion, and it uses stainless steel pins to create sturdy, rust proof connection points.It's a durable steel construction with high yield tubing. Offers superior strength and durability. To get it secured in your hitch, you will need a hitch pin and clip, or a hitch lock. Those items are sold separately and available at etrailer.com.

And again, it is designed for a three inch by three inch trailer hitch receiver.Now when it comes to the guard's towing weight, it depends on which ball you're using. So the unit itself is rated up to 21,000 pounds. When using the one and seven eighth ball, you're limited to 3,500 pounds, the two inch ball is limited to 7,500 pounds, and the two and five sixteenth ball gets you that full capacity at 21,000 pounds. A few measurements that I want to mention for you real quick.I took a measurement from the center of the hitch pin holes to the center of where the hitch balls are. So you'll notice that it has two hitch pin holes on the unit, you can simply use whichever one works best for your application. The one that's closest to the hitch balls is separated, arm center, by nine and one quarter inches, the one that's furthest away from the hitch balls has a separation measurement on center by 10 and three eighths of an inch.If you're using this in the dropped position, with the unit in the lowest setting, gives you a maximum drop of seven and a half inches, that's from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch, to the top of the ball platform. If you have it flipped over in the rise position, it gives you a maximum rise of seven inches.And then the incremental height adjustment is one and three eighths of an inch, that's the distance center on center between our adjustment holes. The product is made in the USA and covered with a limited lifetime warranty. That's going to do it for today's lift, the B&W Tail and Stow three ball mount for three inch hitches.

I originally ordered a Weigh Safe hitch, thinking it would rotate under the receiver when not needed, but it does not. I ordered this B&W that does so perfectly. My garage is barely long enough for the pickup and moving the ball into stow position prevents me having to remove it every time I pull into the garage. It would be too easy to be stolen if left loose in the back and in case if an accident I wouldn't want that hitch flying around inside the cab. 572103

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


This is the third truck that I've installed this same hitch on. Regardless of ball size or riding height of the trailer tongue I only need this hitch to pull it level and safely. When in the horizontal position, the ball assembly also serves as a great step up into the bed when the tail gate is up too. 726430

Thank you for contacting me. The hitch works great for our needs, easy to adjust heights, as we have 1 trailer that sits lower to the ground than all of our other trailers. Its the only hitch we have like that, and we are very happy with it.

This is a very nice and classy look for a receiver hitch for a truck, and man is it built very well, i have several trailers and they all have different tounge sizes, so with having 3 different balls on the hitch no need to go and hunt the right size. I wish B&W would make some kind of locking pins so the SS pins could not be removed but very nice quality. 683474

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


The product is fine, convenient, but, I live in Minnesota. I bought this one to replace the same hitch that I bought when I go the last truck. The stainless steel pins had corroded/rusted so tight to the hitch that even putting them into a 40T press could not break them loose. The stainless steel mushroomed, they did not break loose. Keep them lubricated or you will not be able to adjust up or down in a year or two. I replaced them on the new hitch with Grade 8 Hex Screws, and greased them on install. That way, if they get stuck, I can use an impact wrench to break them loose. 573196

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


I Just received the Tow & Stow hitch, but have not yet used it. It appears to be a high quality piece and I'm confident it will serve me well for many, many years. However, I would like to see the manufacturer offer, as an option, three keyed alike locking pins, as the pins/clips provided can be removed in seconds by someone who believes they can remove the ball mount or the hitch itself by removing the pins (they cannot, assuming you are using a hitch lock and the hitch is mounted properly). If the pins/clips disappear and you don't have spares, the hitch cannot be used properly. Locking pins would give me the confidence to leave the Tow & Stow on my truck when parked without a boat or car hauler attached. 340256

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


I needed a new ball mount for my 2017 F250 King Ranch (FX4 Off Road). This truck is tall and I needed significant drop to level out my trailer. I had experience with this type mount from my old truck, a 1999 F350, and I used a "Quick Draw" hideaway hitch. Not sure if that is the same as B&W but they look alike. This is a great product and looks great on my new truck. etrailer was super easy to deal with , shipped right away and the product, very heavy, was shipped is a solid shipping box. I also got the locking hitch pin to protect my investment (which was a way better design than the Master Locking pin I had on my old truck). The 7 1/2 inch drop is a perfect fit. Thanks etrailer! 392297

Couldn't be happier with my new hitch. Excellent quality, exactly as advertised.

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


I dont have a question, but I do have some input that I discovered after I ordered the BandW Tow and Stow hitch. My original concern was that the hitchs ball head swing arm as BandW calls it could be removed from the shank. There is a review from another customer that said the hitchs ball head could not be removed, so I ordered it based off of their observation. I saw the experts answer here: http://www.etrailer.com/question-112214.html, and it also eased some of my fears about the hitch being stolen. Once I received the hitch I could tell that theft is not a concern. In the pamphlet that accompanied the hitch there is an advertisement for a Receiver Lock, which as we know, will lock the shank of the hitch to the receiver. However, it goes on to say that as long as the pin is in the first shank hole when the hitch is locked, the swing arm cannot be removed. This is because there is a channel on the back of the hitch that allows the swing arm to be removed is blocked when the hitch is flush with the receiver hitch see the attached picture. To summarize, you dont have to worry about the swing arm ball head being removed. A simple receiver lock will keep the hitch safe. 220300

Well built, very strong. The welds look awesome! This is a heavy ball mount but if you are considering an adjustable height and ball mount this is the best one I ran across. Most people will install it, lock it in place and seldom remove it so the weight isn't really an issue. I love the flexibility this hitch provides. Numerous height and ball diameter combinations allow me to back up to any of my trailers and hook on. I didn't think I cared about the ability to fold the balls up under the receiver but I actually use this feature and like it. Highly recommend! 183756

I have used this hitch for about a year now. I have an 18' dovetail trailer that i mainly use this hitch for. This trailer has very little clearance at the lower edge of the dovetail. This hitch allows me to adjust this with the many different height adjustments provided by multiple holes. I also really like the way you can store the ball portion away from unknowing chin bones. Only word of caution I have is when you pull the pins to adjust/use the hitch, be ready for the ball portion to drop fast! It has some weight to it and can pinch/smash fingers. Ask me how I know. Overall great hitch. 422811

George, The product is great- well made and built to last. However, I was a little bummed that it took so long to get delivered. In reading the reviews of others on how fast the product was received I thought that it would be here in time for a recent trip I made (and was hoping to use it) to tow a trailer from California to Colorado and really put it to the test. It didn't make it in time, so I don't know how it would have done. In your brochure with the product you mention the use of locking pins but do not reference any part number or cost. This might be an item you recommend when customers place an order, as well as a mention in your video (which by the way is what put the "yes- I need that for all my towing needs!") . One of the coolest things is that I won't bust a shin or trip over the hitch late at night when walking around the the truck. Thank you George and all the members of your team, Lynda's loving husband, Max 253102

Just received the B&W Tow & Stow 2 Ball Mount from etrailer.com. Bought it for it's ability to not only change ball sizes easily but to also configure it in the stow position while still mounted to the truck. This will allow me to continue parking my truck in the limited size garage without having to remove the ball mount. Additional note: etrailer was great in getting the order out the door and to our house in short order without shipping cost - a great benefit from other sites/companies. 276275

I recently purchased a new Ford F350 and it comes with the 2.5" receiver hitch. The B&W tow and stow fit the bill. I like the rise and drop feature as I pull a few different trailers. I was also impressed with quality and workmanship of the hitch, plus the ability to stow the ball out of the way, gives the truck a clean look. 557460

WOW - This is a heavy duty piece of equipment. I attached it to my truck and it is easy to pivot to the stored position which will make my shins and pant legs happy. My only negative is the 2" ball I primarily will use is on one end so I will have to rotate it around with each use to allow maximum height when stored. It needs to look like the photo, not with the 2" ball rotated to the top, to store. Not a big deal and I am still happy with the purchase. 575183

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • What is the Hitch Pin Hole Diameter on 3 Inch Ball Mounts
  • The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Balls - 3" Hitch - 6" Drop, 6" Rise - 21K # LTB6-3 has a 5/8 inch hitch pin hole. I recommend using the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock for 2", 2-1/2", and 3" Hitches - 3-1/2" Span # WS05 which is that 5/8 inch pin designed to secure this ball mount. The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop, 7" Rise - 21K - Black # BWTS30049B also has the 5/8 inch diameter hitch pin hole, so I recommend using that same lock. The Reese Super...

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.

He stated that this actually will not work with the 3 inch receiver on your Ford F-350, even when using the Ford provided reducer sleeve. This is because of the design on the self-locking system that is utilized with this particular ball mount. The integrated locking knobs on the shank will do a great job of securing itself to the reducer sleeve, but...

  • Can 3" Accessory Fit With Smaller Hitch Receiver Opening
  • Your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD will likely have either a 2" or a 2-1/2" trailer hitch receiver. You can confirm this by measuring the inside height and width of the receiver on your pickup (see attached). If you are trying to use a 3" accessory in a smaller receiver then there unfortunately aren't any adapters that work for your application. If you do have a 3" receiver then yes, you can use an accessory with a 3" shank, like part # BWTS30049B. If you are referring to something different...
