Video Transcript for Fastway Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - DTALBM6800 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number DTALBM6800, this is the fast way flash self locking adjustable aluminum ball mount. It's going to come with 4 keys and just real quick I want to go over what the keys actually operate. There's a lock here on the face of the ball mount. That's going to adjust the pin down here at the base. So this portion here is going to slide into the receiver tube of your hitch. Once you get the pinholes in line with each other you can then rotate the key, it's going to push out those pins, and it's going to hold the mount in place.

So this does not need a hitch pin, it's got the built in self locking pin. And then here, on the ball mount, we've got a lock on this side. Stick the key in there, thats going to adjust the pin here on the back, again, just pushing it in and bringing it out. So with it in the in position it's going to allow it to slide up and down the channel here, that way we can mount it. SO you slide that on there and you can pick the adjustment that you need, there's multiple lines, and those are going to be in increments of 1 inch.

So for our application today we're just going to set it at the lowest one. You'll know you'll have it fully engaged because the key will let loose. That key is only going to be able to be removed with it in the locked position. Then you can re-insert the dust cap to protect your lock core. The adjustable ball mount makes it really easy for you to haul different trailers.

This will adjust in increments of 1 inch, that way you can easily switch between trailers with different tow heights. It's also going to feature a reversible ball platform that's going to let you swap between the 2 different sized hitch balls. All you have to do is remove the platform, flip it over, and . you'll be able to switch between a 2 and 5/16 ball and a 2 inch ball. Really quick, simple reversal.

Has a convenient self locking system that's going to lock the ball mount to the receiver tube, and the ball platform to the mount. The built in locks are great, because they can't get lost like other kinds of hitch locks. And the lock seals are double sealed to keep out water. They're also going to stand up really nicely against rusting and corrosion, and they don't require any maintenance. It's going to come with 4 keys, each key uses a pick resistant style, so that's great to have. The ball mount itself, this portion here, is going to machined from a solid piece of aluminum, so it's going to produce a lightweight ball mount, but it's also going to be very strong. It's also going to avoid welds which can cause weak points that may break over time. The entire system has a really nice, polished finish that's going to create a high quality appearance. The hitch balls are made from a solid steel construction with a nice chrome finish. This is designed to fit a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. It's going to come with a 2 inch ball and a 2 and 5/16 inch ball. When using the 2 inch ball you're going to have a capacity of 7,500 pounds, and you're going to have a capacity of 10,000 pounds with the 2 and 5/16 ball. With a maximum towing weight capacity of 1,500 pounds. A couple measurements to go over real quick. With it installed in this position, this would be the drop position, measuring from the ball platform to the inside top edge of the receiver tube of the hitch is going to give us a measurement of 8 inches, so that's our maximum drop with this at the lowest setting. In the rise position, if we do that same measurement, it's going to give us a rise of 9 inches. The distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the upright bar is going to give us a measurement of 4 and 1/4 of an inch, and in the distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of the hitch ball, is going to give us a measurement of 8 and 1/2 inches. That's going to do it for today's review of part number DTALBM6800, this is the fast way flash self locking adjustable aluminum ball mount. .

If you are looking for a solid trailer hitch I would spend the extra money and get one of these solid hitches. I carry a lot of weight behind my Tahoe and my Dually and have one of these hitches on each. I suggest not trying to save a $100 and get a less expensive one as they are not as strong, its not worth losing a load on the highway. Remember you always get what you pay for... this hitch is awesome. 333436

I needed two different trailer balls. This hitch eliminated the need to carry the other one in the vehicle. It is a nice neat setup for the tow. There is some slop between my receiver and the hitch; but other than that it works great. 138256

This unit is the trick to safe towing of trailers up to 10K. A level tow load is the safest tow load. This Ball Mount speaks safety and much more. It's fit and finish are second to none. With the keyed lock system it it easy on and off and easy elevation adjustments. I have towed many trailers and this hitch is number one. Best in class. 68562

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

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

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


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 Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


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


Comments

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.

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


Love the way it looks. However there are to many moving parts. the fit of the ball support bracket to the vertical slide shaft is loose and allows to much movement. Because the alluminum is soft I am already seeing wear on the spline. Also was loose fit into my receiver. I had to add a set screw to keep it tight in the sleeve. At this rate I expect I will have to replace it within 5 years. Great product if you don't haul heavier loads or if you do not use it very often. I would not buy it again. 572998

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


I'm a very picky buyer; like to research everything - and I also don't have a problem with paying a little more for quality - and for this aluminum ball mount that meant the polish/look of the mount, and even more important the quality of the locking mechanism. This product doesn't disappoint. I have no doubts this mount will take as much punishment as steel mounts and look 10 times better over time. I also appreciate having the integrated locking mechanism - cleaner look, in fact someone came up to me and told me they thought I'd forgot to but the bolt in it. So it looks great, does the job = all expectations met! 543582

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


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

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

uct works great. There was only one problem that I ran into. The locking key area.that the key fits in would turn a little due to the vibration and the notches would n ot line up. I had to take one key and grind the tab on the outside of the key off so that the key would fit in to match to the tab on the inside. Then I could turn the lock back to where it would line back up. Then I could use the othet key as I would normally use it.

Adjustable ball mount - Love the product. It is the second ball mount I purchased needed to get the 2.5" shank since I changed trucks. The only issue I have had is the rubber caps over the key holes. On the first I purchased I noticed when I opened the key hole covers I could not push the rubber caps back into place, fully, because the tab that holds it to the unit would not go back into the hole - it would bunch up creating an obstruction preventing it from seating flush. After several tries and methods I finally cut the tabs off so the caps would close completely. When the new one arrived the other day I was cognizant of the previous issue and tried not to pull the cap out too far to avoid the issue however the same thing happened. In this case I was able to work the tab back into the hole in both places. I wonder if the holes were a little larger if it would not help this situation? Keep up the good work. 63114

I live in Michigan and toe Snowmobile trailers during the winter with lots of salt. Have you used your new hitch in the salt?

I leave the hitch on year round and live in Eastern PA where there is always salt on the roads. Maybe a little rust on the actual ball from where the finish has worn off - other than that no wear or salt damage.

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


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

I haven't had a chance to test the hitch yet, I'm concerned with the possibility of rattling. My initial impressions of the hitch is it is beautifully made, packaged and functions perfectly. Most importantly ETRAILER was fantastic shipped the same day I purchased (Sunday) and delivered on time with tracking updates. So happy with ETRAILER 215596

  • 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...

  • Will SoftRide Anti-Rattle # SR15219 Work With MaxxTow Adjustable Ball Mount # MT70067
  • It is not recommended to deviate from the original manufacturer components because the combination has not been tested together for fit, compatibility and safety. With that being said, I went to the warehouse and measured the holes of the MaxxTow # MT70067 channel portion and the diameter is 11/16 of an inch and the diameter of the pin that comes in the package is a 1/2 inch.

That replacement platform is designed to fit Fastway adjustable ball mounts like the # DTALBM6800. I recommend the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount Adapter # BA-1.

  • Diversi-Tech Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Will Not Unlock
  • It is entirely possible that there is enough pressure still on the pin that goes through the hitch pin hole to prevent you from easily turning the locking mechanism. This could have occurred from the weight of the trailer when it was connected. To relive the tension you will want to attempt to move, wiggle, persuade the ball mount.

  • I would always recommend storing a ball mount of any type and in any geographic location because I personally hate bumping by shins or knees on them! I have also seen some get corroded and stuck in the hitch receiver so that is another reason to take it out when not in use. The outer parts of the Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6800, will withstand those harsh Indiana winters, salt brine, debris, and all. The unit is made of aluminum so it is strong and corrosion...

  • Replacement Allen Bolts for Fastway/Diversi-Tech Solid Tow Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount
  • Rather than the # DTALBM6800, I believe you're speaking of the Fastway Diversi-Tech Solid Tow Ball Mounts like # DTSTBM6425, which uses three different bolts which are available as replacements. Part # DTBM29 is the replacement bolt that goes through the SIDE of the ball platform. Part # DTBM25 is the replacement bolt that goes through the front of the shank at the top that actuates the anti-rattle pin that braces the ball mount in the receiver tube. Part # DTMB24 is the replacement...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount to Tow Multiple Trailers with a 2013 Ford F-150 with 6 Inch Lift
  • Since the lowest of your trailers needs a ball mount with a 9-1/2 inch drop I recommend going with the Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM7000 with the 10 inch drop. It is better to have that little bit of extra drop and not need it than to have a ball mount that does not offer enough drop. The tongue weight of the trailer could pull down the your 2013 Ford F-150 enough to tow it level with the other ball mount, # DTALBM6800, but there is no guarantee that it will...

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2 inch HItch
  • The sleeve of the # DTALBM6825 cannot be removed so that it can be installed in a 2 inch hitch. The problem is the hitch pin device sticks out too far. You would need to go with the 2 inch hitch version part # DTALBM6800 instead.

  • How to Determine if the Diversi-Tech Ball Mount # DTALBM6800 Would Drag the Ground
  • The Diversi-Tech Ball Mount # DTALBM6800 that you referenced is a great adjustable ball mount with plenty of capacity and rise/drop range. If you need a drop of around 8 inches this wouldn't be overkill. You should note that this ball mount will measure 12-7/8 inches from the top of the shank that inserts into the hitch to the furthest point down when this ball mount is in the furthest drop position it will go. You would want to measure from the top of your hitch opening down 12-7/8...

  • Comparing Diversi-Tech Ball Mounts # DTALBM6800 and # DTALBM6600
  • The two ball mounts that you referenced are basically the exact same ball mount with the exception that the # DTALBM6800 can do an 8 inch drop and a 9 inch rise and the # DTALBM6600 can do a 6 inch drop and a 7 inch rise. I would think you would be just fine with the 6 inch drop version, but that really depends on the height of the trailers you plan on towing. I attached a help article that details how to determine how much rise/drop you would need to tow a trailer level.
