Video Transcript for Fastway Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - DTLBM8600 Review

Today, well be reviewing part number DTLBM8600. This is the Fastway Flash Self-Locking Aluminum Ball Mount. The solid one-piece ball mount with the built-in drop or rise is going to let you mash the ball height of your vehicle with the tongue height of your trailer. It has a convenient self-locking system thats going to lock the ball mount to the receiver tube. Its going to feature these built-in locks that cant get lost like other kinds of hitch locks. The locks have these seals that are double-sealed to help keep out water and moisture, so its going to do a really good job when it comes to resisting corrosion and rust, and they dont require any maintenance.The key is whats going to operate the pin.

You can see how the pin is sticking out there. Thats the position that we would need when this is installed our hitch. In order to install it, we need to rotate the key, push the pins in. Then also, we have them lined up with the pinholes inside of our hitch. We can rotate the key to push the pins out.

Remove the key, and its going to lock it in place, so this will lock inside the hitch. Its going to come with two keys that use a pick-resistant tube style. The ball mount is machined from a solid piece of aircraft grade aluminum, so its going to be very lightweight, but its also going to be very strong.It also avoids welds which can cause weak points over time that may break. The entire unit has a really nice polished finish, so its going to create a high-quality appearance. It is designed for 2-inch by 2-inch trailer hitch receivers.

Its going to give us a towing capacity of 14,000 pounds with a maximum tow-away capacity of 2,000 pounds. When choosing a hitch ball, you want to make sure that the shank of a hitch ball design exceed the ball diameter which for this particular mount is going to measure right at 1 inch. Then, this is going to give us a drawbar thickness which is this portion here of also right at 1 inch.The platform is going to give us a measurement 2 and 3/8 of an inch in width. Then, the distance from the center of the hitch pinhole, this back here to the center of the ball hole is going to give us the same measurement of 8 and 3 quarters of an inch. Now if we measure from the center of the hitch pinhole to the upright bar just to the back of the upright bar, thats going to give us a measurement of 4 and a half inches.

The center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the shank is going to give us a measurement of 1 and three quarters of an inch. In order to install this, we first need to go ahead and bring our pins to the in position. That way, we can slide this inside of our hitch.Another thing too is you can use this in the drop or rise position. When it would be installed in the drop position, that would be as shown like this. If we measure from the ball platform to the inside top edge, the receiver tube of our hitch, its going to give us a drop of 6 inches. You can also use this in the rise. If we do that same measurement, its going to give us a rise of 5 inches. With the pins pushed in, we can slide this into our hitch. We get those pinholes in line, and then we can rotate the key pushing the pins out. Once the key is removed, thats going to be locked into place. Thats going to do it for todays review of part number DTLBM8600. This is the Fastway Flash Self-Locking Aluminum Ball Mount. .

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

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


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


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

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 Self-Locking in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


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

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


Serves the purpose needed. Love the fact that it has a 2,000 lb tongue weight and a 14,000 lb tow weight. it gives me that extra safety margin. One big drawback is that I ordered two keyed alike replacement locks because I have another hitch different size but I am not able to remove the set screw following the instructions no matter how hard or what ever I use. So I am presently stuck with using two different keys and with a set of keyed alike locks. 591470


Comments
When its installed, Fastway uses a small amount of thread locker on the set screw, so its designed not to be easy to remove. Try spraying a spray lubricant like PB Blaster or WD-40 in the set screw hole. You might need to repeat this several times for the lubricant to penetrate. If several attempts of this doesnt work, you can use a # 1 extractor to remove the set screw. If that doesnt do the trick, I was told you could send the ball mount to Fastway, and theyd re-key them for a fee.

Still not able to remove the set screw to have two locking ball mounts with one key. i am able to remove the screws in my other two mounts but not this one. This one was put in two tight andor too much loctite.

You may try using some penetrating oil on the set screw to loosen it up a bit. Over time they can become harder to remove. We have a video to show how to swap out the lock cores.

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


I have owned 2 of these hitches. First one lost when I had a hitch pin fall out of a 2 1/2" adapter...fortunately not towing! The hitch is easy to adjust, very durable, looks nice and is well engineered for towing. Finer points that need attention: 1. rubber caps over cylinder locks have a tether to prevent loss that never allows the rubber cap to fit back in place...ever. It's a design flaw. New out the box, the cap won't fit back into place after you remove it the first time. Expect to have to always have to secure the rubber caps or just cut it off. 2. The anti-rattle spring loaded ball bearings are not effective. I have used this hitch in over a dozen vehicles and none have had hitch openings tight enough to allow the anti-rattle bearings to be effective or make contact. The hitch will rattle, always, unless you use some metal shims or tape with duct tape around the draw bar. 3. If you try to adapt the 2" draw bar to a 2 1/2" hitch, it puts the hitch about 3-4" farther back away from the truck. This could be a problem from the standpoint of hitting your shins on the bar, to putting your load farther back, to decreasing your rear clearance. 4. Spending this much money on a hitch, I typically go through 2-4 vehicles with the same hitch and they all have different size hitches. If you buy the 2 1/2" size draw bar with the cylinder lock, it's only good for a 2 1/2" hitch. Not good if you try to back convert to a 2" hitch or use it in one of your buddy's 2" receivers. If you buy the 2" draw bar, you can purchase the $50 adapter to use in either a 2" or 2 1/2" hitch size. 103332

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


I previously purchased this product for a 2" receiver and was very pleased with it as I formerly kept five hitches in my truck for five trailers - each was a different height and one was a 2 5/16 ball with the others being 2". Consequently, I went from hauling around about 75 pounds of hitches to one at about 15 pounds - plus, being aluminum, it had greater load capacity and looked a lot nicer than the steel hitches. My new truck has a 2 1/2" (class V) receiver and the former hitch cam operated lock pins did not come out far enough to engage the receiver when an adapter was used; hence, the need to buy another one rated for 2 1/2" receivers. The new one arrived and it was a 2" hitch with extended pin lengths and an adapter to make it fit a 2 1/2" receiver. Unfortunately, the adapter was off center and I was unable to insert the unit into the receiver on the truck. There are two screws that affix the adapter to the hitch insert and after about an hour I was able to get the new hitch/adapter to fit my receiver using one of the two screws to get the sleeve and hitch lined up properly and discarding the second screw which would have caused further misalignment. While not very happy about the latter, I am pleased with the result. I would strongly suggest that the manufacturer have some type of quality control as it was very apparent to the naked eye that the sleeve and hitch were not properly aligned. As far as Etrailer, they have always been great to deal with and offer all kinds of support. I have been purchasing equipment from them for many years. 340339


Comments
After a year the hitch has worked well. Recently I was in VA with freeing rain then below freezing temperatures. I had to reverse the balls due to what I had to tow. To my surprise the locks had not frozen and worked as designed. Regarding salt exposure, I reside in Florida and after my trip to VA my vehicle was covered with salt. I used Salt Away for boats coupled with a nozzle. The unit is similar to a hose mounted liquid fertilizer applicator and allowed me to thoroughly clean the nooks and crannies including the hitch. It will not damage paint and is supposedly environmentally friendly.
