Video Transcript for Fastway Self-Locking, Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the fastway self locking line of adjustable two ball mounts.So, if you're looking for an easy to use, versatile ball mount, our fastway self locking ball mount, is going to be able to adapt to several different trailers, keep everything secure without any extra components, and look good while doing it.If you tow multiple different trailers, chances are they're going to have a different coupler size, or they're going to have a different tongue height. So, we're going to have to switch out our ball mount. That can become a hassle, especially if we tow so many different trailers in any given day.Well, our fastway ball mount's going to take care of that, because we're going to be able to switch our height, because it's going to be adjustable. But it's also going to give us two different ball sizes.Our ball mounts are going to come in a lot of different configurations, we're going to have some that are going to be available for the two inch receiver tube like we have here. But some also available for the two and a half inch receiver tube. And they're going to have varying different drops and rises that way you can pick one that's going to work with all of your trailers.Now, one thing that you're really going to appreciate about this, is that it's going to have self contained locks.

We're going to have this rubber grommet here, that's going to have a plug over our lock cylinder, so it means we can just lift it open. And you'll notice that we're going to have a tubular key, so we're not going to have to worry about it being picked. But if we unlock our ball, we can slide it up or down to get the appropriate riser drop. And then if we remove it, you'll notice that we're going to have another lock core right on the base here.Now, this is going to be used so we can lock our ball mount directly to the receiver tube. And if you watch, you can notice that the pins are going to go in.

So, we're not going to have to worry about losing our lock, because it's going to be self contained inside the ball mount.We can simply just slide our ball mount in place, line up the pin holes, and then rotate our key, until those pins extend out. And you can see that's not going anywhere. So, we'll make sure that pin is in all the way. And slide our ball mount on, then we can rotate the key, until we get it into the slot, and it will lock it in place.Now, our ball mount's not going to go anywhere, and we're not going to have to worry about anybody stealing it from our receiver, or taking the ball platform. And for extra piece of mind, to make sure that you have the ball mount in the correct spot, it isn't just hung up.

The key itself is not going to come out until it's fully in the locked position. So, even if I get it half way and the key is turned, it's still not going to come out, because that pin hasn't fully inserted. But once it does, the key will come out.Each one of these notches in our ball mount here is going to be in one inch increments. So, right now, we have them in rise position. And if we need to go up say two inches, we can just go up two notches, and that will give us a two inch rise.

And the same thing if we we're going down in the drop position.Each one of our ball mounts is going to come with a total of four keys, and both sets of keys are going to work with both the locks. With the locks being right on front of the shank here, and on the side of the ball platform, it's going to make it a lot easier than trying to get underneath the hitch here, messing with the pin and clip, or locking device, and it's one less thing that we have to worry about misplacing. Because our locks are going to be internal, and they're going to be sealed off from any kind of dirt or debris, so we don't have to worry about them getting damaged.Each one of our ball mounts is going to be made out of a solid piece of aircraft grade aluminum, so we're not going to have to worry about any weak points, because there's no welds in them to break. So, they're going to be nice and strong, and durable, but yet lighter weight than steel versions.Our ball mount right now we have in the drop position, but you can flip it over and put it in the rise position. In case you have a trailer that's taller than the other, so we can get a little bit more height, or drop for whatever we need.Now, each one of them's going to have two different balls on it, we're going to have a two inch ball, and a two and five sixteenths inch ball. And switching them's going to be just as easy as adjusting the height, we simply unlock it, flip the ball platform over, to whichever ball we need.And when it comes to the trailer balls themselves, we're going to have two different options. We'll have the version we have here, which is gonna be a steel, chrome plated ball, which is your typical trailer ball. And then we're going to have the stainless steel version. Now, these are going to be made out of a 303 stainless steel, and they're going to be extremely rust and corrosion resistant. It's going to be really good for marine applications, or anywhere that has a lot of moisture, even humidity, so we're not going to have to worry about rust.And that is another big benefit of the aluminum ball mount, it is going to be rust and corrosion resistant, so we know it's going to have this nice, polished mirror finish for a long time.Now, since our ball mounts are going to come in a variety of different configurations, the shank size, and the ball size, is going to make a difference on how much it can handle. So, whenever you're towing, you always want to double check your hitch, as well as the vehicle's owner manual, and go with the lowest rating.Being able to adjust the ball mount up and down, is nice, but if we don't know how much of a drop or rise we need, it doesn't do us much good. So, we'll show you how to measure for the appropriate riser drop for your trailer. You're going to want to measure from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening, you're gonna make sure that your tow vehicle is nice and flat and on level ground whenever you make your measurement.So, right here, we're getting right about 17 inches. Now, we can come to our trailer and again, you want to make sure that your trailer is nice and level. So, we have our trailer chalked. And we'll come up to the coupler, and we'll measure from the ground to the bottom edge of the coupler here. Which I'm getting right about 21 inches. So, there is about a four inch difference. But since my trailer is higher, I'm going to want a four inch rise.So, we'll take our ball mount, we'll make sure that the pins are all the way in, and since I need a rise, I'll put it in the rise position. Slide it in the receiver tube, line up the holes and turn the key and lock it in place. And we can grab our ball platform, and again, open up the plug, take our key, make sure that pin goes all the way in. Pick the appropriate ball for your trailer, we'll slide it down close to where we need it. And once we have it lined up, we can turn the key and replace the plug.So, now we can go and double check our measurements, make sure we're pretty close to that 21 inches, and we are. Now, all we have left to do, is back up and hook up to our trailer. That'll finish up your look at the fastway self locking line of adjustable two ball mounts.

Product came with scratches, and the chrome has come off both balls no matter how much they are lubed. The Hidden pin is a nice feature not allowing anyone to steal your hitch. I have a separate key ring for the key other wise not enough room to turn the key . Other wise the product functions as it should. 401424

The ball mount is everything I hoped it would be. I shopped around for a while and etrailer had the best price. The mount no longer has the silencing roller balls you hear people breaking. The finish is clean and rugged. My only concern is that the key is more universal than I wanted. My former DT locking pin key worked on the hitch too. 160145

Beautifully crafted piece although there was a "ding"out of one of the edges, but it's a hitch so no big deal. Ordering was simple and delivery was fast! I chose this model for its adjustability, capacity, others comments about its snug fit, and it's locking feature. I was disappointed that it did not fit in the receiver as tight as I thought it would but I have not heard any rattle nor did it feel anything but snug and tight while towing. So far.....I LOVE IT! 158060

I looks nice out of the box, but the locking pins don't retract flush with the body, so it's tough to get it in and out of the receiver. Once in the receiver and the locking pins engaged, there is a lot of free play between the body and the receiver, so I'll see if I can hear it rattling around. I like how tight the key covers are, which hopefully will keep the lock tumblers clean. 132200

OK, The keys could be a little stronger as they tend to bend when youre turning them.

The quality and finish of this ball mount is excellent. I'm completely satisfied with this product. The only issue I had was on the self-locking mechanism on the receiver. It was very stiff, but after several turns it loosened up. I ordered this at 11:00 am on Thursday with the free shipping option. It arrived the next day (Friday) at 1:00 pm. I was impressed to say the least. 112735

The best experience I EVER had when making an online purchase. Not only was this a awesome product, the price was even better. My local trailer shop try charging a $100 more for the same DT hitch. E trailer also includes free shipping and I received it in two days. Wish I would've found you guys sooner. nice to see a place with such great customer service. Thanks again. 97520

The hitch is very versatile for multiple trailer heights. The quality of finish is very good. The only drawback is there is up and down play in the receiver were the hitch locks in. This causes some hitch noise when braking due to the play. Locking feature means no theft. Over all a very good buy and worth the extra price 91819

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


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

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


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


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

  • Recommendations for an Adjustable Ball Mount with Multiple Balls and Height Adjustments
    That is a difficult question to answer because there are so many variables. On bigger trucks with receiver heights well above the ground going with an adjustable ball mount with the most rise or drop would be fine in this case and would be what I recommend. There is no rule of thumb as far as how much space you should have from the ground to the bottom of the ball mount because there are so many things you would have to factor in. Vehicles that are lower to the ground like vans for example...

  • Locking Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2012 Ford Super Duty
    The Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM6425 that you referenced is designed for 2-1/2 inch hitch openings, and while it does appear to be a 2 inch ball mount with a sleeve on it, it will work just fine on a 2-1/2 inch hitch. The portion that looks like a sleeve is not removable and does not offer any movement so it really should not be an issue. This ball mount has a locking mechanism that would prevent theft. I have personally handled this ball mount several times...

  • Diversi-Tech Ball Adjustable Ball Mount with a 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball
    The balls on the Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6425, cannot be changed to accommodate a 1-7/8 inch ball, however, you can pickup part # DTALBM6407 which is the same product except it comes with a 2 inch ball and a 1-7/8 ball that you are looking for. This ball mount has the same rise and drop dimensions and fits 2 inch hitches, but keep in mind that the towing capacity of this ball mount, when using the 1-7/8 inch ball, is limited to 2,000 lbs.
