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.

Just received my hitch. This is actually the 2nd one, of the exact same hitch. Hate to have had to spend the $ on it twice, but here's why the 1st didn't last. It's an AWESOME hitch! Looks great, versatile, and tough as stone. Tow my 21 foot wakeboard boat constantly with a lifted Silverado. Have pulled the skid steer several times with it also. Enclosed utility trailer (21 ft), no problem! Quick and easy to go from 2" to 2 5/16. LOVE the 2.5 receiver shank, no more sleeves!!! BUT, I live in snow country. If you use it in the winter, make sure to lube the mechanism's that move. After a few years, got really tough to actuate the locks, and finally the key lock broke. I'm sure if you squirt some WD40 in there, that won't be a problem. I just got lazy, and that's usually when you brake things lol! And it has a different tag on it than before. It used to be made by diversi tech. But I've looked at them side by side, they're the EXACT same hitch. Just must've gotten bought out by someone. But you'll love the hitch! People will check it out, and nobody can steal it! 615213

Excellent value for the price and great looking also. Works as advertised. This Is used for two different trailers , it’s so easy to adjust. No worries about the hitch being taken off the truck. It’s locked on, you’ve got the key. Also the pins fit the trucks receiver with no play. On hitches I have had with a separate pin and lock there has been enough play that after many miles the holes become elongated making for unsafe trailering. 600623

After a lot of research and comparisons I called etrailer to see what they could do for me on the hitch I wanted. Katie D. was very good at answering my questions and the order process was seamless. Received notification on the order as well as shipment details to track the item. What I like the most is the fact the lock is built in and the hitch looks great on the truck. Not only that it is solid and does not rattle. It showed up a couple days earlier than expected and will be ordering again with etrailer and Katie D. will be getting my business! Thanks. 438006

The ballmount I purchased is for my lifted pick-up. I own a Chevy 2500 with a 7" lift on 37" tires. The drop is ideal and very easy to adjust. It's not cheap to buy but I feel is worth every penny. The locking mechanism gives me the peace of mind that it won't be stolen as well. Purchase with confidence. 394884

Super fast shipping!! This hitch is the best one on the market! I use it for towing my car trailer to the track and back also on some side work. only hitch I have found that has a true weight rating and was dropped low enough to work with my 2012 GMC with a 12'' lift and 38" tires. The finish is show quality. 178048

by:

says it's for a 2 1/2 inch class V receiver, but it fits very loosely into a class V hitch. Also there is a little slop from the adjustment on the ball and the shank itself. It's not bad but the tolerances should be better. Overall it's a heavy unit and the locks are very solid, I just expected a bit more for a $300 unit. 162891

Very quick "FREE" delivery. Just got it. Looks great. Fits perfect in my receiver on a Dodge 2500. Keys turn nicely in both keys locations. Easy switch on the ball sizes and height adjustment. Anxious to give it a test drive this weekend. 157571



- DTALBM7025
by:

I was under the impression this was a Class V hitch (that was the page I was on). This hitch is entirely too flimsy and rather than being for a 2.5" by 2.5" box has an adapter sleeve to make it fit the Class V receiver (it is 2" x 2"). I'd love to return it!!!!! 154165

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


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 :-

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

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

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 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

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.

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 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


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

This is everything I had hoped it would be, and more. Excellent design, quality, and appearance. Locking mechanism works great, and ball mount doesn't rattle. This is a great addition to my new Yukon Denali Hybrid! 90546

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


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

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


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

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Can Fastway Adjustable 2-Ball Mount DTALBM7025 Be Used in 2-Inch Hitch By Removing Sleeve
  • My contact at Fastway said the sleeve on the shank of the Fastway Self-Locking Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # DTALBM7025 is part of the lock assembly and is more than a spacer. It is not designed to be removed to enable using this 2-1/2-inch ball mount in a 2-inch hitch. However, Fastway does offer sleeve # DTADP25-SS that let's you use one of their DTLBM and DTALBM series 2-inch ball mounts like # DTALBM6600 in the larger 2-1/2-inch hitch size.

  • Fit of Adjustable Ball Mount on 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
  • The ball mount you referenced, Fastway Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM7025, fits 2-1/2-inch hitches and its locking pins will engage with the hitch pin holes on a 2-1/2-inch receiver tube. If you have a similar ball mount made for a 2-inch hitch, such as # DTALBM6600, its pins will not extend out far enough to engage with the holes on a 2-1/2-inch receiver. You cannot use a reducer sleeve like # 58102 to use a 2-inch ball mount in a 2-1/2-inch hitch. For reference...

  • Dimensions of Diversi-Tech Locking Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM7025
  • The distance from the hitch pin hole to the rear of the vertical portion of the ball mount is 4-1/4 inches, and the lateral distance from the center of the trailer ball to the hitch pin hole is 8-1/2 inches. The # DTALBM7025 ball mount doesn't use hitch pins. According to my Diversi-Tech rep, the locking pins that act as the hitch pin to secure the ball mount into the receiver is 5/8 inch in diameter, as are the pins that secure the ball platform at a given height. To see a product demonstration...

  • Does the Adapter Sleeve Bolt to the Shank on Diversi-Tech 2-1/2 Inch Adjustable Ball Mount
  • The sleeve is secured to the shank of the Diversi-Tech ball mount # DTALBM7025 with an Allen head screw. I do believe that is what you are talking about. I have included a link to a video review of this ball mount for you.

  • Hitch & Ball Mount for a 2013 Ford F-250 with 10-Inch Suspension Lift & 40-Inch Tires
  • Since your 2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty has an impressive lift in the suspension and 40 inch tires, the towing capacity will decrease to an unknown value. The hitch height measurement you provided, 33-inches from the top of the receiver tube to the ground, is too great a height to be compensated for by a ball mount with drop. The most drop available from a 2-1/2-inch Class-V hitch is 10-inches such as # DTALBM7025 (please see link at right). This means your trailer coupler's height would...

  • Replacement keys for Diversi-Tech Locking Ball mounts, part # DTKEYR
  • You can order replacement keys for your Diversi-Tech aluminum adjustable ball mount. You will just need the number off of your existing key and then type in # DTKEYR(followed by your key number). We have all currently available replacement keys listed on our website for the Diversi-Tech Locking Ball Mounts. My contact at Diversi-Tech said the ball mount most likely has corrosion build-up inside from either liquid de-ice chemicals, road salt or car wash soaps. He said you need to pour...

  • How to Reduce Rattle of Diversi-Tech Self-Locking Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM7025
  • The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-062 is a hitch immobilizer intended for use on 2-1/2-inch hitches in a flat-towing application that uses a tow bar to pull a vehicle. It is not designed for use as an anti-rattle device for standard trailer towing, although it might have some positive effect. I called my technical contact at Diversi-Tech and inquired about your concern with rattle. Although Diversi-Tech does not offer an accessory anti-rattle device to work with their adjustable ball mount #...

  • Comparison of the Diversi Tech Ball Mount and the Weigh Safe Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch Hitches
  • Both the Diversi Tech Ball Mount part # DTALBM7025 and the Weigh Safe Ball Mount part # WS10-25 that you referenced are EXCELLENT ball mounts that would work great for you. The advantage the Weigh Safe has that would make me lean towards it is that it has the tongue weight scale built into it which is a nice feature and would provide you some peace of mind knowing that you aren't exceeding your capacities. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommendation for an Adjustable Ball Mount on a 2004 Chevy Tahoe Z71 with Factory Tow Package
  • I offer adjustable ball mounts for a 2-1/2 hitch, but I would recommend to check the size of the hitch on your 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 with the factory installed tow package. The 2-1/2 inch size hitch would be a Class V hitch that would be rated to tow at least 14,000 lbs. I do not offer a hitch with a 2-1/2 inch opening for a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71. To check the size of your factory hitch you will just need to measure the inside of the opening of the hitch on your vehicle. The...

  • Can Balls be Swapped Out/Replaced on Diversi-Tech Ball Mounts DTALBM7025
  • The balls that come with the adjustable ball mount # DTALBM7025 are fixed in their assembly. If you need all three common ball sizes (1-7/8, 2, and 2-5/16) then you can use ball mount # DTALBM7000-3S which includes all 3. It has the same 10 inch drop/11 inch rise measurements as the ball mount you were looking at. It will also provide better ground clearance since none of the other balls will be hanging down like on the other ball mount. On ball mount # DTSTBM7000-2S, you can swap...

  • Difference between Diversi-Tech Ball Mount DTALBM7027 and DTALBM7025
  • The only difference between the Diversi-Tech Ball Mount, # DTALBM7027 and # DTALBM7025, is that the ball mount # DTALBM7027, comes with 1-7/8 inch and 2 inch ball diameters and the # DTALBM7025, comes with 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball diameters.

  • Availability of Adjustable Ball Mount with 1-7/8-Inch Hitch Ball
  • The Fastway Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM7025 fits into 2-1/2-inch hitches and includes 2-inch and 2-5/16-inch hitch balls. All such adjustable ball mounts (see the linked page, please) come with these ball sizes. None of our 2-1/2-inch shank ball mounts include a 1-7/8-inch ball since they are made for higher capacity hitches/vehicles. For an adjustable ball mount with a 1-7/8-inch ball size you will need one for 2-inch hitches, like # BWTS10048B from B&W,...
