Video Transcript for Fastway Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - DTALBM6625 Review

Today we're gonna take a look at the Fastway flash self locking adjustable aluminum two ball mount for 2 1/2" inch hitch with a 6" drop and a 7" rise. Now this adjustable ball mount will make it very easy for you to haul different trailers. The ball height can be adjusted in increments of one inch so that you can easily switch between trailers that have different tongue heights and the ball platform is reversible so it will let you swap between two different size balls. The larger 2 5/16 diameter and the 2".And the shank portion right there this is what will slide into your 2 1/2" hitch receiver. Now this ball mount does use a nice convenient self locking system that will lock the ball mount to your receiver tube and lock the ball platform to the ball mount. These built in locks can't get lost like other kinds of hitch locks, they do have the lock seals on them that when you open them up these lock seals are double sealed, helps keep out water from the lock, helps resist corrosion, requires no maintenance.The keys they use are the pick resistant tube style keys and you can see they do include four keys.

Just to show you how to lock this to your hitch, basically again just open the seal right up here. Once you get that seal open take your key, stick it right in there and you can see the pin right here is extended outwards so just turn it 180 degrees and you can see as you turn it track set pin now you'll be able to slide this into your 2 1/2" hitch receiver, line it up with the pin hole and then just turn this back 180 degrees and you'll notice that extends out and locks it into place.So simple as that. And just put your seal back over your lock, other shank on this ball mount is machined from a solid piece of aircraft grade build aluminum. The solid aluminum produces a light weight yet very strong ball mount. And it avoids any welds which can cause weak points that might break.

And if you notice the whole ball mount has a nice polish finish to it to create a high quality appearance.The hitch balls are chrome plated steel hitch balls and this part is made in the USA. Again a few specs on this, it's designed to fit a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" trailer hitch receiver. The ball diameters again 2 5/16 two inch. Now the towing capacity on this ball mount will just depend on which ball you use to tow with. If you use the larger 2 5/16 ball 10000 lbs is your towing capacity and that's stamped on top of the ball.

If you use a smaller two inch balls 8000 lbs, towing weight capacity will be 1000 lbs.Now the maximum drop which I have in the maximum drop position right now we're gonna measure, that's measured from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform. Maximum drop is six inches. If you flip it over and use it in the maximum rise position same way measure from the top of the shank top of the ball platform and max rise will be seven inches. Now the distance from the center of this hitch pin right here to the back of this upright bar is gonna be right at 4 1/4" and the distance from the center of this hitch pin right here to the center of the hitch ball, that is gonna be right at 8 1/2".And the last thing I want to do is just demonstrate this ball platform how you can remove it, flip it over to use a different ball size or put it in different height adjustment. So what we're gonna do is remove this seal, put our lock in, turn it and you'll notice it'll release it.

Then you will be able to slide out the shank, flip this over if you want to use the two inch ball, gotta flip it back to use the larger 2 5/16 and then to adjust it you can see the holes here they're in one inch increments so you can slide it up or down to get the correct, to tow your trailer level. So what you'll do is just line it up with whatever hole you need and then once you get it in that hole, just turn it and lock it into place, put your seal back in there and now you're locked at that height that you need correct for your application and you're all ready to go. But that should do it for the review on Fastway flash self locking adjustable aluminum two ball mount for a 2 1/2" inch hitch with a 6" drop or a 7" rise.

Excellent product and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I should had purchased the stainless steel balls though, the chrome went away within the first few uses and now they look rusted. 356537

No regrets, pull a trailer a few times a week. Makes it nice 352569

This product came as advertised. It is heavy duty, strong, and durable. I bought this because of the locking pin mechanism. Everything works smoothly and it was a great investment. 346702



- DTALBM6625
by:

I am in the marine business and because of this I tow ALOT. I use my trailer ball everyday several times a day and have to make many adjustments due to the different size trailers I pull. This hitch is by far the absolute worse hitch I have ever owned. Just to turn the key since day one feels like you are going to break the key off due to the fact it is so stiff. The alignment of the pins has to be so perfect that I have spent several minutes before just trying to get everything to lock in place. It was so disappointing I threw it in the trash. What an absolute waist of money this is. If you want a pretty and shiny hitch that's worthless to use then this is the hitch for you. 340095

great looking and functional hitch. a lil pricy but nice. looks too good to use. like the 1 key fits both. no extra pins to keep up with. 284492

by:

The product is awesome. The shipping however was not. The box arrived open and in bad shape. One of keys barrels is not round as it was badly hit evidently. The other issue is that one of the pins to lock it in does not really retract all the way. It went into my hitch only by smacking it real hard until it reached the holes. I hope it is not a fail point. I truly believe this is a great product so i still give it five starts but shipping does need to improve....maybe better packaging. 269803


Comments

It has been over a year now. I love this product. It moves easily every time. I highly recommend to anyone in the market. I still am having issues with the retraction of one pin that locks it to the receiver. I need a hammer and something against the pin to smack it in all the way so I can remove it. Very difficult. Luckly I dont take it off much. I truly believe this was caused in shipping is it was pretty banged up. Still a great product!

Sound like the lock cores might be damaged. We do offer replacements and there is video that shows how to replace them. You might check out the video, it may be possible that your lock cylinders are not lined up correctly.

Very prompt delivery, and receiver hitch looks great on my truck. Looks like a well made product. 262384



- DTALBM6625
by:

Great product, still working as advertised. As I tow trailers and some ball mounted equipment, the adjustable feature is really nice. I do wish I had opted for the stainless steel option versus the chrome ball. Chrome came off on the first tow somewhat. Other than that no issues or problems. Wonder if a person can change out the balls? It also gets lots of looks. 253822

A bit concerned that the product is aluminum but working well thus far. Chrome came off the ball on the first trip. Overall, good product. 252433

Looks like it's very well built...installed on truck...seems very loose and sloppy inside housing,seems to lock in place but still loose and noisey...will see what happens when i tow boat... 231117



- DTALBM6625
by:

First off, this is a beautifully made ball mount. Even though it is aluminum, it is still pretty heavy. It looks like it could tow anything. I needed the adjustability because I'm not sure what I'll be towing in the future. I had to return the first one I ordered. The key got stuck and wouldn't come out. They key for adjusting the balls worked fine. ETrailer was very prompt in sending me out another one. The second one was stiff, but became easier to use after several cycles. I towed with it for 300 miles and it worked great. I like the feature that you can turn the ball around and lock it out of the way, so you don't accidently rub up against it and get grease on your pants. I'm very pleased with it so far. I'm just a bit leery now with the key getting stuck, that I promptly removed it from the truck and keep it inside when not in use. I would have gave it an excellent rating except for the key issue. 230680



- DTALBM6625
by:

Got my new hitch faster then I expected which was great cause I already had a few trailers I wanted to move around. It is a good fit on the class V hitch (maybe a hair small so it jiggles not bad) The locks are great and gives it a nice clean line. The lock covers fit nice and snug so no way to fall open and let dirt in (Like some others.) I have only had this for a short while but have pulled my camper, a car trailer(flat bed dove tail) and my brothers boat this is where the drop really came in handy. He has a ski boat with the prop under the boat so the trailer has to sit flat and low. This hitch stepped up to that challenge like it was nothing. Great hitch I'am very very happy Thank you 224432



- DTALBM6625
by:

This is a nice hitch. Construction seems solid and I like the keys for the balls and the "pin". The lack of a pin is nice and it works well. The only reason I did not give this a better rating is it is fairly sloppy in the receiver. I am surprised at how much play there is between the hitch and the receiver. Nice finish and otherwise a nice hitch. 219070

Order follow up and customer service were outstanding. Shipping was quick. Product as advertised and appears very solid and durable. Already pulled my 6k boat and 3k utility trailers and it works as expected. Just be aware that the chrome balls are not covered by the warranty and will show wear - it's unavoidable. I would readily recommend this product to a friend. 149634



- DTALBM6625
by:

Great looking design and the craftsmanship. It worked exactly as I expected it would, in lockng into the receiving hitch. The only problem I had was the plastic caps that go over the key holes, once pulled out they don't want to fit back in properly. 148223

Great product!! My #1 choice for hitch hands down! 146327



- DTALBM6625
by:

In general this hitch is a well built product that operates as advertised! Tolerances are somewhat open for a slight movment and "clunking" during directional changes. That being said it does change position easily as planed and locks in securely. 136267



- DTALBM6625
by:

What a great addition to our 2015 Chevrolet. With the new higher stance of the HD trucks, this hitch allows us to adjust for various load and trailer heights. Also, this hitch eliminates the aggravation of the sleeve insert that comes with the larger receivers. No more fuss trying to align multiple holes to insert the pin. The lock provides awesome security as well, we have lost numerous hitches from our trucks. We will be ordering these hitches for all of our trucks. We can always count on etrailer.com for quality products! 133428

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Replacement Key for Fastway Diversi-Tech Ball Mount
  • I'm sorry to hear about the break-in but I do think I can help you and thanks for the photo. Though I was unable to reference the number you gave as a part number, from the photo it looks like you have a Diversi-Tech (Fastway) Aluminum Ball Mount. What you will need is the Re-Keying Kit for DTLBM and DTALBM Series Self-Locking Aluminum Ball Mounts # DTLBM02RK to replace the locks.

  • Can Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM6625 be Used Without Outer Sleeve in 2-Inch Hitch
  • The steel sleeve around the shank of the USA-made Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM6625 is not a removable component, like an adapter. It is part of the integrated locking mechanism that secures the shank in your receiver tube. This ball mount is designed for use only in 2-1/2-inch hitch receivers. It cannot be used in a 2-inch hitch. The linked video will help illustrate the operation of the lock mechanism. We do offer a comparable product from Diversi-Tech designed for...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for a Ford F-350 Pickup
  • The adjustable ball mount you will need will depend on the height of the top of the hitch opening on your F-350 with 2-1/2 inch receiver hitch. We have an article that explains how to measure to select the correct ball mount, see link. 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...

  • Recommendation for Freeing Seized Lock Cylinder on Ball Mount
  • Of your key operated hitch similar to the Fastway ball mount # DTALBM6625, you are wise not to use leverage as the primary tool as it could damage your key, lock cylinder or both. I recommend you use the UltraLube Biobased Spray Lubricant and Penetrant - 12-oz Aerosol with Straw # L10444 on the lock cylinder and then use a rubber mallet to allow vibration to help it work into the cylinder locking mechanism. Allow it to sit and repeat as necessary until the key is able to be used to free...

  • How Well Do the Locking Mechanisms Stand Up in the Diversi-Tech Aluminum Ball Mounts
  • We have not had any complaints regarding the Self-Locking, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6625, locking up or freezing. Sometimes you may need to lift up on or jostle the ball mount to take pressure off of it so it is easier to turn the key. Diversi-Tech recommends using air tool oil in the locking mechanisms to keep it in good working condition. You can check out the customer reviews on the product page. I have also included a link to a video review for you.

We can get the keys to you as quickly as you need them, overnight if need be. If you don't have the four digit key number, you'll need to re-key the lock using part # DTLBM02RK.

  • Difference Between the Diversi-Tech # DTALBM6625 and # DTALBM6625-2S
  • The only difference between the two ball mounts is that the trailer ball assembly of the # DTALBM6625-2S is stainless steel, while the ball assembly of the # DTALBM6625 is chrome plated steel. The stainless steel trailer ball assembly will be more corrosion resistant over time. Once the chrome plating of the ball assembly of the # DTALBM6625 is worn away, the assembly will be susceptible to corrosion. If you plan on using the ball mount quite a bit, you might want to go with the # DTALBM6625-2S. Also...

  • I spoke with my contact at Diversi-Tech about the adjustable ball-mounts that fit a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening. All of the 2-1/2 inch adjustable ball-mounts we carry have an adapter attached. I recommend part # DTSTBM6625. This ball mount has a 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise with increments of 1 inch for adjusting. It has an adjustable pin in the top of the shank that protrudes through the adapter that prevents rattling. The attached balls measure 2 inches and 2-5/16 inches. I have attached...

  • Availability of Replacement Trailer Ball for Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mounts
  • According to my Diversi-Tech representative, the trailer balls on the # DTALBM6625 are replaceable but the procedure is pretty complicated, involving removing the lock cylinder, and the springs and pin that hold the ball assembly onto the adjustable shank. If this is something you were considering attempting, my Diversi-Tech rep recommended having you call them directly at 800-950-0141 so they can walk you through the process. The process for the non-locking model is much simpler....

  • Is a 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball Available for the Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM6625
  • I do have a solution that will allow you to use a 1-7/8 inch ball mount with the Diversi-Tech Adjustable Aluminum ball mount, but I spoke with my contact at Diversi-Tech and she told me that they do not offer a separate ball mount platform with a 1-7/8 inch ball mount. Instead, take a look at the Diversi-Tech Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch Receivers, # DTALBM6625-3S. This adjustable ball mount allows you to use the same ball mount platform for a 1-7/8 inch, 2 inch and...

  • DiversiTech Adjustable Ball Mount Does Not Fit Ford 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Easily and Lock is Hard to Turn
  • The first problem is occurring because the Ford 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch has a different corner radius than what most all accessories have. There is no easy or safe way to fix this problem. Over time it will eventually get easier and easier to insert and remove the ball mount. The lock problem is usually a result of a lack of lubrication. Use a spray white lithium grease (NOT WD40) to lubricate the lock and the pins as best as you can and that should help it to actuate easier and prevent...

  • Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2-1/2 inch Hitch
  • Since you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch installed on your 2014 Ram 2500 you would instead want the part # DTALBM6625. This is basically the exact same adjustable ball mount as the # DTALBM6600 that you referenced except it is designed to fit a 2-1/2 inch hitch. You would need to remove your adapter sleeve and this would work well.

  • Will 2008 Chevy Truck OEM Hitch Reducer Work on Diversi-Tech Ball Mount, # DTALBM6600,
  • On the Diversi-Tech Ball Mount, # DTALBM6600, you would need to use the Diversi-Tech 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch Adapter Kit for DTLBM and DTALBM Series Locking Ball mounts, # DTADP35, on your 2008 Chevy Truck. The adapter kit comes with its own lock, so you would have a key that fits the adapter and a key that fits the ball mount. The reducer that came with your truck will not work because the pins on the ball mount will not extend enough into the reducer to attach properly. I would recommend...
