Like most of the reviews on this product, a little skeptical on the locking pin in the receiver. Seems like it should extend out a little further when it’s locked in the receiver.... It is well built and looks great. It’s what I wanted and can’t wait to put it to the test! 573983

Have not used product yet, however customer service was excellent. I had received the wrong ball mount and contacted customer service. Dana was understanding and immediately sent out a return label and the correct ball mount. Couldn't ask for any better. Should be picking up new trailer in a few weeks and can't wait to use all the products I have purchased from etrailer.com 223292

Review from a similar Self-Locking in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I was very confused in trying to determine the type of hitch to use for my just purchased 2019 Ford Superduty truck. The good folks at E-trailer worked with me and I selected a hitch with just the right drop. Years ago I purchased several tires from these folks and they are wonderful to work with. Very professional and (most important) PATIENT!! 706320

I love this product. I have 2 different tow vehicles, and having the option to change the height of the ball is a big advantage. I also like the feature of having 2 different size balls on the same mount. This product has much flexibility and suites my needs perfectly. Plus it looks sharp. 369888

Review from a similar Self-Locking in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


After about 7 months, the lock that locks and releases the pin to the receiver was completely frozen stuck, and the key to the lock twisted off (pretty flimsy). After re-lubing the pin and lock again, twisted the other key off. i had to mangle the lock to get it off of my truck, and unit is now completely worthless... 404043

Review from a similar Self-Locking in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Serves the purpose needed. Love the fact that it has a 2,000 lb tongue weight and a 14,000 lb tow weight. it gives me that extra safety margin. One big drawback is that I ordered two keyed alike replacement locks because I have another hitch different size but I am not able to remove the set screw following the instructions no matter how hard or what ever I use. So I am presently stuck with using two different keys and with a set of keyed alike locks. 591470


Comments
When its installed, Fastway uses a small amount of thread locker on the set screw, so its designed not to be easy to remove. Try spraying a spray lubricant like PB Blaster or WD-40 in the set screw hole. You might need to repeat this several times for the lubricant to penetrate. If several attempts of this doesnt work, you can use a # 1 extractor to remove the set screw. If that doesnt do the trick, I was told you could send the ball mount to Fastway, and theyd re-key them for a fee.

Still not able to remove the set screw to have two locking ball mounts with one key. i am able to remove the screws in my other two mounts but not this one. This one was put in two tight andor too much loctite.

You may try using some penetrating oil on the set screw to loosen it up a bit. Over time they can become harder to remove. We have a video to show how to swap out the lock cores.

Great solid hitch but the lock is poor quality. I left it on the truck for several months (with lock protection cap on) and one day I went to remove. Found lock tumbler had shifted and was unable to insert key to remove. Had to drill out lock to get ball mount off the truck. I know have a $80 aluminum paper weight. 591181

The key driven locks look questionable at first, but they hold just as solid as the pins. I don't think I have pressed it's limits with my power dump trailer, but it definitely meets my needs. I generally hook it up to the top 2" receiver on my torklift 20k receiver. Works great. Feels substantial! 550239

Review from a similar Self-Locking in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I previously purchased this product for a 2" receiver and was very pleased with it as I formerly kept five hitches in my truck for five trailers - each was a different height and one was a 2 5/16 ball with the others being 2". Consequently, I went from hauling around about 75 pounds of hitches to one at about 15 pounds - plus, being aluminum, it had greater load capacity and looked a lot nicer than the steel hitches. My new truck has a 2 1/2" (class V) receiver and the former hitch cam operated lock pins did not come out far enough to engage the receiver when an adapter was used; hence, the need to buy another one rated for 2 1/2" receivers. The new one arrived and it was a 2" hitch with extended pin lengths and an adapter to make it fit a 2 1/2" receiver. Unfortunately, the adapter was off center and I was unable to insert the unit into the receiver on the truck. There are two screws that affix the adapter to the hitch insert and after about an hour I was able to get the new hitch/adapter to fit my receiver using one of the two screws to get the sleeve and hitch lined up properly and discarding the second screw which would have caused further misalignment. While not very happy about the latter, I am pleased with the result. I would strongly suggest that the manufacturer have some type of quality control as it was very apparent to the naked eye that the sleeve and hitch were not properly aligned. As far as Etrailer, they have always been great to deal with and offer all kinds of support. I have been purchasing equipment from them for many years. 340339


Comments
After a year the hitch has worked well. Recently I was in VA with freeing rain then below freezing temperatures. I had to reverse the balls due to what I had to tow. To my surprise the locks had not frozen and worked as designed. Regarding salt exposure, I reside in Florida and after my trip to VA my vehicle was covered with salt. I used Salt Away for boats coupled with a nozzle. The unit is similar to a hose mounted liquid fertilizer applicator and allowed me to thoroughly clean the nooks and crannies including the hitch. It will not damage paint and is supposedly environmentally friendly.

I ordered this because even though mine wasn't broken I wanted a bullet aluminum one. No welds. Good looking, solid, and weighs a lot less than my last one (which is steel). I will begin to put it through the rigors of my towing starting tomorrow. Glad I found this product. 304769

Review from a similar Self-Locking in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


First of all I received my order lickity split. Thank You! When I opened the Ball Mount, I used the key and turned it to see the pins slide in. One side slightly moved. The key turned but no response. After working it for what seemed a long time, and pushing with my thumb it now works. But I am still a little skeptical of it. Hard to imagine that little amount of pin on both sides will hold 10,000 lbs. Otherwise, it looks really nice and I just used it to tow a single Seadoo and trailer and it held. The true test will be the big trailer. Sherry:) 63724

Well, I still love the Ball Mount, even thou the first time I took it off the little barrings with the springs,which I believe is the rattle control fell out. Did nt bother to stick them back in since it would happen again. I chased them down the driveway. I have a bolt on the underside of my receiver that I tighten which keeps any rattle happening. I had that installed. It pulls the trailer with no problem. Thanks, Sherry:

Thanks for the follow up Sherry. I am happy to hear that you do have an anti-rattle device that is working well for you. I also wanted to let you know that Diversi-Tech has redesigned this adjustable ball mount. The new design no longer includes the anti-rattle balls that you chased down the driveway.

This is solid. But also surprisingly light. Installed easily and locking mechanism is very smooth. Wish it came in anodized black: my only complaint. Feels like a value at the etrailer price. I am using on an Audi Q7 so have it flipped over so as to get a 1" rise. 450854

High quality hitch. Very easy to use. I really like that it is one key for the lock and the adjustment. Really good looking hitch. Price is really good when you price out lock/ball/receiver and this one is adjustable with one key for all. This is our second one purchased after we tried the first one out. 208590

Review from a similar Self-Locking in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This is my third DT (FLASH) Draw Bar. All three are in service. They are light weight but have higher GTW capacities then heavier draw bars. The four star rating is due to a couple things: 1) the shank on this Lastest purchase (from Flash) is not completely polished when set in the rise orientation. I used SemiChrome and a buffing when to finish the job. All draw bars fit a little loose in the receiver, especially the DT8200 model causing some rattling and clunking when pulling an unloaded trailer. I resolved this issue by drilling n taping the second hole that was in the receiver side ahead of the lock pin hole and wrenching the draw bar down n to the side. Rock solid now and no more clunking. It's a quite set up. The secure lock is easy to use and is theft proof. 525112


Comments
Still loving the set up. Still looks like new. Make sure you weld a 1/4 plate or nut to the outside of the receiver if you plan to tap and wrench a bolt into the side of the receiver like I described in my previous review. It eliminates the slop but the treads will strip out over time if you dont provide for more bolt threads to be captured when wrenching down the bolt to remove the play in the draw bar. Be aware that the steel bolt WILL wear a spot on the draw bar over time. I stopped using the bolt and purchased a U-bolt and plat to clamp the outside of the draw bar to the receiver to eliminate up/down play. This set up is better because it doesnt damage the side of the draw bar but provides a secure noise-free towing experience. Some guys may not be bothered by the clunking noise when stopping and starting but it drives me nuts. Thumbs up if it doesnt bother you :-

  • Differences Between Fastway E Series and Self Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount
    The Fastway E-Series # FA42-00-2800 and the # DT-ALBM6800-3S self locking ball mount have the same 10K capacity (which depends on the ball used) and the same 8 inch drop or 9 inch rise.

    I have a great solution for you. I recommend the Weigh-Safe Adjustable Ball Mount # WS8-2 with the Weigh-Safe 1-7/8 inches ball # WSB-L. The nice thing about this adjustable ball mount is that you can have a 8 inch drop or 9 inch rise and it has a built in scale. I also know that with a large drop the adjustable ball mounts can encounter bottoming out when a ball is mounted on the bottom. With the Weigh-Safe because the ball is only mounted on one side if you use the full drop you won't...

    Many trailers measure around 16 to 18 inches from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler with the trailer level. But really they could be any height. Ball mount # DTALBM6600-3S that offers up to 6 inches of drop and 7 inches of rise is going to most likely cover the majority of trailers you might tow. But you could err on the side of caution and go with something that offers a little more rise/drop such as # DT-ALBM6800-3S at 8 inches drop and 9 inches rise maximum. Using a...

  • Availability of FastWay Adjustable Ball Mounts that Fit 2-1/2 and 2 inch Hitches
    I wish the part # DTALBM6625-3S could easily be transferred from a 2-1/2 inch hitch to a 2 inch hitch but the sleeve does not come off easily and allow it to work with the smaller hitch size. The hitch pin assembly sticks out to far for it to fit a 2 inch hitch. For a 2 inch hitch version of this we have the part # DT-ALBM6800-3S which would be our best option. I know it's probably more than you want to spend.
