Video Transcript for Fastway Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - DTLBM9200 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number DTLBM9200. This is a Self-Locking, Aluminum Ball Mount from Fast Way Flash. This solid one-piece ball mount with a built-in drop or rise is going to let you match the ball height of your vehicle with the tongue height of your trailer. It's going to feature the convenient, self-locking system that's going to lock the ball mount to receiver tube. The built-in locks are a great feature to have because they can't get lost like other kinds of hitch locks. The lock seals are actually double-sealed to help keep out water moisture.

It's going to stand up well against rust and corrosion and it doesn't require any maintenance. Its going to come with two keys. The key's go in to this portion here and then if you rotate the lock, it's going to bring in the pins. That's going to allow it to slide into the 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. Once you get your pinholes lined up with the pinholes of the hitch, rotate the key to the other direction. It's going to push the pins out, they're going to engage the pinholes in the hitch.

Then removing the key is actually going to lock the ball mount inside of the hitch. It's really going to be a great additional security and it's going help deter theft with it being locked inside the hitch. Again, it's going to feature two pick-resistant, tube-style keys. Both of the keys are going to be the same. The ball mount is machined from a solid piece of aluminum, so it's going to be very lightweight, very durable. It's also going to avoid welds which can cause weak points that may break overtime.

It's got a nice polish finish on it, so it's going to create a high quality appearance. It is designed for a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receivers. This portion here is our shank, that's going to be the portion that's slides into the hitch. If we take a measurement of the ball hole diameter, that's going to give us a measurement of a 1 1/4", so keep that measurement in mind when choosing the hitch ball, and the shank size of that hitch ball. It's going to offer us a towing capacity of 14,000 lbs, with a tongue weight capacity of 2,000 lbs. With it installed in the drop position, which will be this position here, if we we're to measure from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the ball platform, it's going to give us a drop of 1". If you want to use this in the rise position and perform that same measurement, it's going to give you a maximum rise of 2".

The distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of where our ball is going to mount, that's going to give us a measurement of 8 1/2". The distance the we have from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the shank is going to measure 1 3/4". It's a really simple installation all we have to do is be sure to bring our pins in. Stick our key in, rotate it so the pins are in. Then we can take it and then slide it into the receiver tube of our hitch until we get our pinholes aligned up with one another. Then we'll rotate the key back the other direction to bring the pins out. You'll know that they're seated correctly, because you'll actually be able to remove the keys from the lock. Cover the core up, with that nice dust cap; just pushes in there creating a nice tight seal. Then that's all there is to it. That's going to do it for today's review of part number DTLBM9200. This is the Self-Locking, Aluminum Ball Mount from Fast Way Flash. .

Just received the parts. They are well built, operate well and hopefully perform as well. One note, the ball shows that it requires 425ft lbs of torque applied to tighten the nut. That's a lot for most, I needed a shop to tighten this to spec for me.I would recommend this ball mount to others. 206132

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

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.

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

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 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


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

So far so good. Only had the hitch for 2 wks. Upgraded my tractor hauler truck and trailer so why not the hitch as well. Looks to be very solid construction. As to the locking mechanism I am pleased I chose the barrel keys. Easier to keep clean (dirt roads) and spending this $$ on hitch I lock the design. Other hitches have been stolen when they beat the lock bar off the receiver. 179248

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

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

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


I have not had a chance to use the ball mount yet but it is easy to use and fits receiver with no issues. I recently purchased a Curt class V receiver that is installed below my OEM receiver. With the drop installed in the Curt receiver in the upright position, the back of the ball mount comes very close to the bumper on my 2011 Ram 2500 crew cab. I will see if there are any contact issues when actually towing and revise my review, if necessary. 114259


Comments

After using the hitch for six months, with the Curt receiver, I found it does contact my bumper when positioned at that height, causing scrathes. I also find that I can not unlock the receiver pins without having to tap pretty hard on the pin ends.

Both products are working well. I initially had a problem with the ball mount, which you promptly followed up on, giving me the Diversi-Tech support number. After talking to the rep and following a couple of his suggestions, the mount is now working well.

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


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

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

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

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...

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 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.

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.

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


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 .

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


Does what need. Gave me the drop to level my trailer. Like the locking system. Nice made hitch. Did want the 10 inch drop. Got a call from etrailer that it was on back order until September. So went with the 8 inch which works with what I have. Just wanted the additional adjustment. Very happy. 96572

Unfortunately, was using the hitch and the lock pin broke. Short story, was going over some railroad tracks. So had slowed. Suddenly lots of noise. Pull over to find trailer dragging. Damaged the jack, under my bumper. Had to leave the trailer to get another hitch. Got a replacement from manufacture under warranty. Told me never happens, but they have reworked the pin. When it happened, ball stayed on trailer hitch, rest stayed on the truck. Dont trust the hitch anymore. Crazy to spend major money on a product, to have it risk your life and those around you. Hope it was truly a one time event. But beware!

I work in a machine shop and this is a great piece of hardware to add to your towing arsenal. The built quality is great. I bought this to use on my subaru xv crosstrek with the torklift hitch so it would be easier to get the hitch in and out without crawling under the car to remove the hitch pin. 127210

This product was DOA. First I couldn't retract the pins. I followed the troubleshooting guide, and was able to retract them. Then, I couldn't lock it back up. They key got stuck. I followed the troubleshooting guide again. Nothing works. I am in the process of getting a return label from eTrailer. I am not interested in a replacement of the same type. Have read reviews of similar problems. Clearly a manufacturing problem. 246650

Review from a similar Fastway Self-Locking in Ball Mounts


I was looking for an aluminum receiver when I came across etrailer.com. Upon searching I found the Diversi-Tech self locking ball mount. Honestly I didn't know these existed. Being one who has lost my keys off the bumper in the past this caught my eye immediately. I called to place the order and the staff was extremely helpful. I mentioned I was leaving on a trip and I was told they would try to get the product to me before I left. I've heard this in the past, but rarely does it ever pan out. Much to my excitement,two days before I left the product was at my door. Very satisfied customer. I will not hesitate to shop with etrailer again. 202550

  • Is A Flash Self-Locking Aluminum Ball Mount For 2-1/2 Inch Receiver Available?
  • I contacted the manufacturer and there is not a Flash self-locking, aluminum ball mount available like Item # DTLBM9200 in a 2-1/2 inch size. Other options are available but they would be like the Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch Hitch, Item # FA42-00-2625. If you wanted a hitch lock then you would need something like Item # FA86-00-3685. I have attached links to our available inventory and to a video for you to check out.

  • Aluminum Ball Mount Options for a 2014 Mercedes 350 BlueTec
  • I have two ball mount options that fit almost all of the specifications that you listed. The first option is the Andersen Alumistinger Ball Mount, # AM3503.

The only part of this ball mount that does not fall within your specification is that this...

  • Ball Mount For Factory Class IV Hitch Has Play on 2011 Dodge Ram Big Horn
  • With a Class IV Hitch, you should have a 2 x 2 receiver. You should be using a ball mount designed for 2 inch receivers like the Draw-Tite Ball Mount, part # 40331 or # 40330. The ball mount will have some play when mounted to the hitch because of the difference in tolerances between the shank of the ball mount and the receiver opening. Both may be within specs but up to a certain tolerance, one may be within the tolerance but on the high side, and the other in spec on the low side. Yes,...

  • If you are looking for a locking Fastway Aluminum Ball Mount that has a 1 inch diameter ball hole the part # DTLBM8200 is what you want. The # DTLBM9200 having a diameter ball hole of 1-1/4 inch would be too large.
