Video Transcript for Fastway Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - DTALBM6600 Review

Today were going to review part number DTALBM6600. This is the Diversi-Tech Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount. I want to give you a few specs on this first. This is designed to fit into a two-inch trailer hitch receiver. On the ball platform it does have two different size ball diameters. It has a two-and-5/16 and a two-inch that can be used either way.

The balls are permanently attached to the ball platform. They cannot be removed. It does have a towing capacity of 10,000 pounds. Has a tongue weight capacity of 1,500 pounds. Right now the ball platform is set in the maximum drop position so we would measure from the top right here to the top of the receiver.

So if we put the ruler on it that would be six inches is the maximum drop. Now if you install it this way that would give you the maximum rise, and again it would be measured from here to here. So if we put the ruler on it, its going to be seven inches maximum rise. You can also see there are different holes that this ball platform can slide up and down and lock into. Those holes are one-inch increments so you can raise and lower it in one-inch increments.

The distance from the hitch pin hole to the back right here of the upright bar is going to be four and a quarter inches, and the distance from the center of this hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball is going to be right at about eight and a half inches. This part does come with a limited one-year warrantee. Now I want to show you a few features of it. This adjustable ball amount makes it easy to haul different trailers because the ball height can be adjusted in increments of one inch, so you can easily switch between trailers with different tongue heights. The reversible ball platform lets you swap between the two different size balls, has a convenient locking system that locks the ball mount to the receiver tube, and theres also a lock down here that will lock the platform to the ball mount.

Basically I just want to show you how that works. Ill turn around so you can see they are actually see the pins. They are actually extended out in the lock position right now, so if we put the key in Now it does come with the four keys and they are the tube-style keys which are pick resistant. So if we turn it 180 degrees youll see those pins would retract into the ball mount and that will allow this to come out of your hitch receiver, or when youre putting it to install it, slide it in. Once you slide it in, you align these pins with the hitch pin holes, and as you notice the key will not come out when its in the unlocked position, so once you turn it 180 youll see those pins come out and they will extend into the hole of your hitch and lock it into place. Then the key will come out. Also, if youll notice on top here, there are two spring-loaded sort of steel balls and what that is, is a built-in anti-rattle system which will keep the ball mount quiet and it will lessen the wear because it will stop movement on the ball mount when theres no trailer attached. This ball mount and platform is machined from a solid piece of aircraft-grade billet aluminum. The solid aluminum will produce a lightweight et strong ball mount. It avoids welds, which could cause weak points that might break. And the polished finish, as you can see right here, creates a nice, high quality appearance. This part is made in the USA. Now I just want to show you how the ball platform Right now its locked into the lowest position so if you need to move it some, again, you pull these. They have these nice lock seals right here and up here, and theyre double sealed which will help keep water out of the locks which will help resist corrosion and requires no maintenance. So again, if we put the tube-style key in there, again, turn it 180. Once you turn it the key locks in, again, the key wont come out, and then as youll see you can slide it up whatever height you need and this is with the two-and-5/16 ball. F you have a trailer that requires a two-inch, just flip it over and put it to whatever height you need that way. Once you find the right height, then you just turn that key into the lock position and slide it. There you go. Then youll notice its locked into position. That should do it for review on part number DTALBM6600.

Satisfied Received helpful advice, order was taken efficiently and product arrived as promised. Probably a much nicer mount than I need, but I was 5 hours from my truck, the trailer was being built, and I was not sure how much drop would be needed. This one covers a wide range, is attractive, easy to use, and has a convenient locking feature. May or may not need the smaller ball, but like knowing it's there just in case. And it all looks good pulling a Kubota tractor on a 22' trailer. 3683

Received the hitch recently.....first impressions are that this is a well made product, very well made. Heavy as heck too....which is nice. Mounted it up and locked it in, can't wait to tow with it. Seems well designed as well, the two key holes for locking it in place and adjusting the height have good weather seals as well. Not a lot of play in the moving parts which is nice, no real slop to deal with. 121946

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

The ball mount in itself is awesome. Very solid and heavy and the build quality appears to be excellent. Unfortunately I had to return it and got instead the similar Fastway DTALBM6625-2S - which is for a 2-1/2 inch receiver and also the balls are stainless steel. The reason I had to return it is because I have a 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty. They come with a 2-1/2" receiver and Ford includes a reducing adapter to get it to 2". The issue was that the lock mechanism on the Fastway does not send the lacking rods out far enough to engage BOTH the adapter sleeve and the 2-1/2 inch hitch - so the entire thing would just slide out. This was not a product flaw, I should have considered better how the locking mechanism worked before ordering. E-trailer was great with the return process, even provided a downloadable return shipping label at a reasonable cost and I got the refund to paypal the same day they received it back. I again got from etrailer their Fastway DTALBM6625-2S which is an absolute BEAST as well and looks great on the truck. 487197

by:

ball mount fits loosely in the receiver so that the pins that extend out from the ball mount shaft through the holes in the receiver don't extend out far enough, for my liking. This is because since the ball mount shaft has so much play, it will shift to one side. Then, the pin on the other side does not extend all the way out of the hole so that it is not flush. True, i am being paranoid. However, i imagine a case like a crash where enough force could pull the shaft out from the not fully extended pin side to release the trailer to wreak more damage. I would just feel more secure if the pins went out further through the receiver or the shaft was not so loose. Otherwise, i really like the product a lot... enough to give it four stars... :o) 279757

the receiver hasnt been used a lot... but so far, it is still working well.

Unfortunately, the vertical portion of the receiver hangs down too far down for my application and I ended up scraping it on the concrete when backing out of a moderately sloped driveway. The manufacturer does not offer the receiver portion of the hitch as a replacement part so I had to purchase an entirely new hitch with different dimensions. It's a beautiful, sturdy hitch but you need to consider how low the vertical portion of the receiver is in relation to how steep your driveway is. 194307

I recently purchased a 2013 GMC 2500 Denali It comes with a 2.5" hitch with and adapter to make it down to a 2" hitch.. Unfortunately this locking device extends out on each side only far enough for the 2" adapter and not into the 2.5" frame hitch. I suppose i will have to find one that has a hole all the way through for a lock.. 74736


Comments

Hello Andy I have 2014 GMC denali 2500hd and from what I understand is that the locking pins that come out are not long enough to lock into the 2.5 receiver?

Yes, that is correct. This adjustable ball mount is intended to be used in 2 inch hitch applications. The Diversi-Tec # DTALBM6625
Self-Locking, Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls - 2.5" Hitch - 6" Drop, 7" Rise
$259.95
is the same configuration as this ball mount but it is intended to be used in 2-1/2 inch receivers.

Very strong, easy to install and very secure. Yes a bit pricey, but well worth the money. I did notice there was what I thought was an unusual amount of play in the receiver. I called etrailer and Marcia was so very helpful and very concerned that I may have received the wrong product. She even called the manufacturer and found out what the changes that were made by the manufacturer which made the pictures incorrect. My hat is off to Marcia and all the folks at etrailer 130643

Good Morning Patrick I just love the hitch for several reasons. It works flawlessly to start with and I am able to adapt to almost any trailer I choose to pull. It is definitely a plus being able to move the hitch to adapt for proper levelling. I have a lot of people just stop and look at the hitch when I am in parking lots, and a time or two they have asked me where I got it. The only downside is the fact that while people see it, so does my back up alarm...

Well its been a year! I use this hitch almost every weekend. I have a 20 ft stock trailer, a 18 ft car hauler and a 32 ft enclosed toy hauler. The hitch works great with all 3 trailers, from 1000 lbs of cargo to 6000 lbs of cattle. NO PROBLEM!!!! Dont second guess just buy it you will love it. Oh yeah because of its design and the fact that it locks on to your receiver, I have never taken it off and I dont worry about it being stolen.

Required a bit of gentle sanding to fit into my receiver. I hated to scuff up the mirror finish. Looks great on my lifted Tacoma. The locking mechanism & reversible slide ball and no rattle design is genius. 4 keys, I like that too. I wish more things were built this way. 58013

I stand by the 5 star rating, hitch has been with out fault. I miss calculated the and trailer sits at an angle, ocasionally thats a problem. I extended the trailer tonge 3ft. that eased the angle problem. I may sell this one and reorder a correct .

The fit in my 2 inch hitch was sloppy at best and in my view unsafe. The hitch rattled and the locking pins did not extend past the holes in the hitch. In fact it appeared to me it could separate from the truck while towing a trailer. I am returning it. Seemed well built and very solid. Extremely disappointed. 446733

I am actually buying this hitch for a second time. We had a friend that needed to use a trailer and had a hitch on his truck way to big for the trailer, extremely heavy and was so hard to take off of his truck. I lent him my hitch which came right off my truck and was easily put on his truck. He liked the hitch so much he bought it from me. So I had to turn around and buy another one. Great product 406658

- DTALBM6600
by:

This is a very good and versatile hitch. I have 3 trailers which each need a different height, 1 trailer uses a 2 inch ball and the others use a 2.5 inch ball, this hitch makes it very easy to change hitch height and ball size with no tools needed. The hitch feels solid when towing with it. I would highly recommend the purchase of the self locking, adjustable hitch. 304213

The locks get jammed up with dust and it is hard to turn the key. The slide has to be in perfect position, I have to wiggle it up and down for several minutes to get the key to release. It's a pain in the butt compared to the other model I have on my other truck. 271877



- DTALBM6600
by:

Overall pretty good. Adjusting the height and locking the pins isn't the smoothest, but it works just fine. If the ball is close to the key hole it makes it hard to lock the pins. 268961

This is my second adjustable hitch drop. I've had this same one in both Class 3 & 5. Both are good and very handy. It does sometimes take a little wiggle of the ball assembly as you try to turn the key to get it to lock into place. This is because you can't see if the lock pin is lined up with a hole exactly or not. 171872

  • If you have not already tried a white lithium grease spray on the frozen lock on your Diversi-Tech Ball Mount # DTALBM6600 this would be a good first step. If you can remove the ball mount from the truck, that will help to allow the lubricant to do its job.

For instance, on my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 the top of the receiver opening is 20 inches from the ground when parked on a level surface. I use an adjustable drop receiver at 5 inches of drop, top of receiver opening to top of ball mount, for towing a equipment...

You cannot use a reducer sleeve like # 58102 to use a 2-inch ball mount in a 2-1/2-inch hitch. For reference...

  • Recommended Fastway Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount With Stainless Steel Hitch Balls
  • Fastway actually does use stainless steel hitch balls. They offer many of their ball mounts like the # DTALBM6600 with the chrome plated steel balls, and if you prefer, the same ball mount with the same features is available with stainless steel hitch balls. That is part # DTALBM6600-2S. I called my contact at Fastway and they told me that they offer the chrome plated as a more cost-efective option.

  • Can the Balls on the Adjustable Ball Mount, # DTALBM6600 Be Removed and Does it Screw Into Place
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6600. The balls are locked into position whether or not the unit is locked and they cannot be removed easily. They do not simply screw into place. They are held in place by an internal pin that is not accessible from the outside.

  • Can Balls be Replaced on Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM6600
  • The balls on the Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM6600 cannot be changed out. If you will need all three ball sizes (1-7/8, 2, and 2-5/16) then you could use B&W ball mount # BWTS10049B. I have linked a video review of this ball mount for you.

  • How To Prevent Trailer Theft Beyond Hitch and Coupler Locks
  • One easy way to prevent someone from removing the ball would be to use a ball mount that has the ball attached (welded) to the shank. That way you won't have to weld a ball to a shank that isn't meant for that type of modification. Some examples include # 45325 or something adjustable that locks like # DTALBM6600. A Wheel lock such as # RA-25 would also be a good idea. The trailer would not be able to be moved with a wheel lock like this on it. And the ball mount/ball may be enough...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Ball Mount for 2012 Acura MDX
  • I have a great solution for you. First for a trailer hitch, The Curt Class III Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 13354 is a great option. No drilling will be required during installation, however keep in mind that the heat shields will need to be removed and reinstalled. This 2 inch hitch opening will provide a 400 pound tongue weight capacity and 4,000 pound towing capacity, although you will also want to check the vehicle's capacities as listed in the owner's manual. I have attached an installation...

  • How to Correct Frozen Locks on Diversi-Tech Ball Mount # DTALBM6600
  • If you have not already tried a penetrating lubricant like WD-40 or PB Blaster on the frozen lock on your Diversi-Tech Ball Mount # DTALBM6600 this would be a good first step. If you can remove the ball mount from the truck, that will help to allow the lubricant to do its job. Try applying the spray-in lubricant with the ball mount in one position and allow it to soak in overnight. Then reposition the ball mount and re-apply the lubricant. Again let it soak it. Repeat this process a...

  • Is Diversi-Tech Adjustable Trailer Ball Mount, # DTALBM6600 Corrosion Resistant
  • The body of the Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount, # DTALBM6600, is made from aircraft-grade high-strength polished billet aluminum, which is naturally corrosion resistant and would be excellent for salt water marine applications. The integrated hitch pins are made from O-ring-sealed stainless-steel which is also corrosion resistant. The balls are chrome-plated which is not the most corrosion resistant material but they are durable when compared to zinc and aluminum balls. For the...

I have included video reviews of these Ball Mounts for you to check out. I have also included a FAQ about choosing the correct ball mount for...

  • Are the DiversiTech Self-Locking Ball Mounts Secure and Strong Enough for Towing
  • The Self-Locking pins come out to about flush with the receiver tube, nothing to cut or remove for security purposes. Nothing is completely theft-proof, but this is one of the best systems I have seen. I have not heard of any in-hitch failures on any of the DiversiTech Self-Locking Ballmounts that we have sold. The pins overlap internally and are made of stainless so they are very strong and corrosion resistant.

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount for the Rock Tamers Mud Flap System
  • I do have options but the DiversiTech now Fastway Adjustable 2-Ball Mount like part # DTALBM6600 is not offered with an extended shank.

  • Ball Mount Recommendations for Towing a Trailer with Multiple Vehicles Requiring Different Drops
  • You are on the right track for picking out the correct ball mount. Between the Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount, part # DTALBM6400, and the Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount, part # DTALBM6600, I believe that you would be better off with the # DTALBM6400. As it could do both the 1 inch and 5 inch drop and would not be be excessively longer than you need. The # DTALBM6600 would work in that regard, but it would be a little longer than you would need so the # DTALBM6400...

  • To find the correct ball mount to tow your trailers you will need to take a couple measurements. There is no industry standard ball mount due to so many variations of trailers and trucks. First with your truck on level ground measure the distance from the top of the receiver opening to the ground. Then with the trailer on level ground measure the distance from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. If the trailer hitch height is greater than the coupler height, the...
