This Fastway Solid Tow adjustable ball mount provides solid, rattle-free towing performance. A stainless steel pin, operated by the included hex tool, extends out from the shank and tightens the ball mount in your receiver.


Ball mount shank showing platform-to-leg bolt

To further eliminate any movement, a bolt in the side of the ball platform tightens the connection between the platform and the adjustment shank. As a result, you'll enjoy a quiet, rattle-free towing experience.


Ball mount shank showing ball-to-platform bolt

The ball platform is connected to the adjustment shank by the hex bolt located in the front of the platform. To change the ball height, simply loosen both the bolt in the front and the bolt in the side of the platform with the included tool. This will release the ball platform and allow you to slide it up and down. Or, you can slide the platform off and reverse it to change the ball size.

Video Transcript for Fastway Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Review

Randy: Hey guys, it's Randy here at etrailer.com. Now, if you've had a ball mount installed in your vehicle for very long you've probably heard the noise, the rattling and things like that that are generally associated with it. That can add a lot of aggravation. It can add not necessarily discomfort but when you hear it back there behind you always think something's loose on your truck. Basically what we're looking at today is meant to alleviate that. This is the solid tow from Fastway.

As you can see not only is it a very good looking aluminum ball mount, it's got that high polish, very nice looking. This one has chrome balls. Now you can get it with the two and two and five sixteenths inch like what we've got here today or the two and inch and seven eighths if you prefer it that way but take a look at that. There's no movement and there's no play.We've got a couple of screws, one here locks out the connection point here. Then the one on the front locks out the ball platform to the shank.

Now adjustable ball mounts are not that uncommon they come in many different shapes and sizes. The one thing that's pretty universal about all of them, they make a lot of noise. We've got not only the hitch or the ball mount where it goes into the hitch making noise and also where that platform meets the shank. Now this is going to be available in a two inch variety so for two inch by two inch receiver tube openings or in a two and a half inch version.It's important here that you pick the right one for your hitch opening size. All the two and a half inch hitches have the adapter that comes with them and that allows you to use a two inch product.

The way this is designed with that pin that pushes up though if we put this in our adapter well this is going to be secured to our adapter but our adapter's still going to have that movement in place so it's not all that effective. So be sure to pick the right size for your application and regardless of the lift on your truck or your SUV, or van, car for that matter.Now here you guys can really see the advantage of that adjustable ball mount. I really thought it was going to be a pretty straight situation. Really we're about three, four inches worth of drop on this to get it down where we need it. Having a nice level trailer like that with that adjustment allows us to keep equal pressure on both axles of our trailer or it keeps it from pitching down or pitching up in the front and overall having that like that and after towing with it for eight or nine miles now it seems like it's a really nice solid way to level everything out and keep it running properly.Now we also have several different rise and drop options available just depending on your truck, or your SUV, or your car and what you're going to need to match that up for your trailer.

Also, you have the option of going with a two inch ball and an inch and seven eighths or a two inch ball and a two and five sixteenths. Now the two inch and two and five sixteenths are definitely going to be the most common although there are still some inch and seven eighths couplers out there. So, I like that it's available. So, if you do have that inch and seven eight you can pick it up.Now, as far as weight ratings go they're all going to be rated for a thousand pounds worth of towing weight so we don't want to exceed that, the downward pressure we're putting on them. The inch and seven eighths ball has a 2000 pound gross trailer weight rating so that's the total weight of your trailer and anything you load up on top of it. The two inch is going to be 8,000 pounds, the two and five sixteenths that's going to be 10,000 pounds.Now, something I strongly recommend is buying a locking hitch pin for this. It's a very nice looking ball Mount and I guess technically somebody couldn't remove it without having that key to back it off but just to be safe you don't want it to disappear. If you decide that you're not going to lock it you will have to provide your own hitch pin and clips and definitely something to keep in mind. Now when working with customers I often get the question how far it is from the pin that comes up to make it nice and stable to the hitch pin holes and that's going to be two inches. So, we want to measure from the center of your hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of your receiver tube opening here. As long as it's two inches or more you're going to be in good shape.Now as far as the user experience with them, really heard nothing but good things about it. It takes all that noise out of the equation. We don't have to hear it rattling around. So whether it's just us cruising down the road or we have a truckload of people we're heading somewhere you're not going to feel like something's gone wrong or something's come loose.Now as far as asking customers how they like it, how they enjoy it, nothing but good is really said about it. On a few occasions if that pinhole was not in that two inch configuration, if it was a little bit further back I think the Toyota 4Runner you might run into that issue on. Of course it didn't work up to the expected potential and it's a valuable concern. So make sure you have that two inches but outside of that I often hear people say that they wish they had gotten it sooner. It's made their experience towing a lot better because you just don't have to worry about that noise or maybe that slight jolt you get from time to time when you take off, when you slow down, when you're turning. I think overall it's going to be a really nice product and the way it looks is certainly something you can be proud of.One I think that is very comparable to this in the quality and the manufacturing is the BMW Tow and Stow and we're going to take a look at a comparison between that and this. You're going to notice with that Tow and Stow we get a lot more noise, we get a lot more movement out of it up and down, side to side. It's just secured with a pin and a clip. So, I really like the fact that we can use a ball mount, keeping it in our vehicle, loading them and unloading them all the time can kind of be a hassle, and not have to worry about the aggravation we generally get with constantly hearing it rattling around behind us.Something else I really like about the shank design and the ball mount platform itself is that it's an all one piece billet aluminum. So essentially we don't have any wells, we don't have any cuts or anything like that that can stress and wear over time which we tend to see with steel. Now for the installation process we'll start with just the shank portion. We're going to line up that beveled hole. It's going to make it a little bit easier to get our pin in with the hole on our receiver tube opening here. Of course, we'll pin that into place.Now, for security I do recommend using a locking hitch pin. There's one by bolt that you can actually key to the ignition of your vehicle so you never lose it or we have many other types. We've got a nice etrailer screw type lock. So it's a big investment and I certainly recommend protecting it but once it's in there . Let's back this off a little bit. You can see that typical movement in play. As we travel down the road that's what we get and that's what we're going to eliminate using the solid tow. So, we'll take our hex key here, cam that over, and you can see all that's been eliminated. Now we can add on our ball mount platform.Now to set your ball mount properly essentially you want your trailer to be nice and level. You're going to measure to the bottom of the coupler then measure to the inside top edge of your receiver tube opening. Whatever that difference is that's what you want to accomplish. So if your couplers two inches low we'll set this to two inches of drop. If it's two inches high we can set it to two inches or rise, whatever your number may be.So, just take that around, slide it up in position. And we have alignment marks here so we want the top of that platform in the right position. So right here basically that's a zero drop configuration. One inch, we're going to set our stuff two. So put it right there and we'll use our set screw here on the front. That's going to go into one of those holes there. Get that nice and secure so we can come over to our safety lock screw. That's just going to prevent this one from backing out. So get that down till it makes contact, torque, and at that point we're ready to load up our trailer and hit the road. And that's going to complete our look at the Fastway line of solid two adjustable two ball mounts with chrome balls.

Yes the hitch arrived yesterday with my UPS guy complaining that such a small box could be so heavy! I did a test install on my new 2500 Ram Diesel with 2-1/2" receiver. It fits perfectly and cranking down on the set screw makes it absolutely unmovable in the receiver. I do wish the tongue was a bit longer, as the ball mount ends up pretty close to the bumper, but that is a small concern. The entire unit is extremely well made, and the up/down adjustment of the ball mount component is smooth and effertless. 115141


Comments

Is the shaft on this model a true 2.5 inch shaft without an adapter sleeve. The photographs above have no shaft but I am not sure if it was simply removed for the photographs or if this is a true 2.5 inch shaft. If it is a true 2.5 inch shaft then the anti-rattle pin will work much better than on a model where it also has to compensate for the sleeve.

The 2-1/2 inch versions of the DTSTBM line do use an adapter sleeve. They use an extended length anti-rattle pin that passes through the adapter to make contact with the receiver just like the 2 inch counterparts. Check the link to the photo, its the shorter 4 inch drop version of this hitch.

I love that ball mount, so much so that I found a second one listed on VT Craigslist with a 2 & 1-7/8 combo ball mount. The Diversi-Tech units really do absolutely stop the trailer from bouncing in any way. They are so simple to adjust for my various trailers that I carry nothing else in the truck.

Great looking adjustable hitch. I purchased the non-locking version because locks and similar mechanisms seem to have issues due to salt and ice here in MN. Not sure if the locking version would have issues, but I didn't want to take the chance. Hitch is easy to adjust, seems very strong, and looks great. 86709

As always with etrailer- excellent communication, quick shipping, excellent follow-up. Ha been a customer for 6 years and will keep coming back. Regardless of what you need- trust George. As for the hitch- this baby is pretty stout. it will certainly suit my needs. Have not towed with it yet, but with quick assembly and adjusting, I have no worries as to performance. I do suggest purchasing a locking receiver pin though. This hitch is attractive and expensive. could be too tempting for someone walking by....Just saying 188477

product on first inspection was great however there was on issue I had to clean up and that was the pin item 1 and screw item 10 they were hard to move I had to remove screw and pin and found that there was an excess amount of lube put on and that the thread on screw was distorted and first lead of thread rolled over from pushing up pin. I ran a tap 1/2 13 thru tapped hole to clean out the gunk and took a file to straighten out lead on thread.(been a machinist 45 years) removed pin cleaned and inspected for damage non found lubed and installed and lubed and installed screw all works fine now and very satisfied with product and service from etrailer was superb as always. 495096

This is my second one I've ordered from eTrailer (10"drop & this 6"). Absolutely great product! This time around, I went with stainless steel balls... They should look beret, longer. Only reason for a second is because of a new truck. The old truck had a 9" lift and 37" tires. 580679

Great pricing...I called and spoke to Caleb and the hitch I was inquiring about was on backorder.... Caleb went above and beyond and got me the next size up and shipped it the very next day (I called too late for it to go out that night). I explained that it was imperative to have the hitch before the weekend.... he assured me it would be there by Thursday. It got to me on Wednesday. Great service, great price. The hitch worked flawlessly and made me feel better about spending so much!! 187165

This hitch is great and a lot better than expected. Love the built in anti-rattle feature(main reason for this choice) and the finish is a nice polish. Now I can easily adjust height from smaller trailer to larger travel trailer to compensate for the squat of truck,makes removing jack block possible now with the heavier load. 456582

Review from a similar Fastway Solid Tow in Ball Mounts


Out of the box showed the quality of work to be incredible. Once I installed the hitch I was disappointed to see that the installed anti-rattle device does not make 100% contact (more like 50%) in the receiver as intended with the locking pin installed. No matter how much the locking screw was tightened any weight or jolt on the hitch would cause it to rattle. The vehicle this was installed on was a 2011 Tundra CrewMax 4x4. I understand this is a universal hitch for many vehicles but it appears the locking pin hole could be moved forward approx. 1/2 to 3/4" to correct this problem. If you are buying this product due to it's corrosion resistance it has my vote, but if the installed anti-rattle pin feature is critical look for a different brand on 2011 Tundra's. 76250

This drop hitch is a true champion! I have a '09 Ford F-250 with 4.5" of suspension lift on 37" tires, and this hitch is more than adequate for all types of towing applications. I just got back from towing a 7500 pound load for 10+ hours. I was on bumpy roads, interstates, and in some sketchy situations, but not once did I have to worry about the hitch. And on top of that, it was QUIET!! I locked down the tension bolt for reducing the movement, and it never moved or made a sound after that. And it looks SICK! I would highly recommend this to anyone 277533

Review from a similar Fastway Solid Tow in Ball Mounts


Needing at least an 8" drop I ordered the 10" drop to be sure I had enough leeway for adjustment in case my vehicle was heavily loaded with gear. The anti-rattle feature is what really made me choose this hitch. I'll be towing a boat 7,000 miles this summer and did not want to hear any squeaks and eliminate anything that could contribute to trailer swaying. In order to be sure the anti-rattle pin would make contact with my receiver I inquired with both the manufacturer and etrailer. Fastway customer rep said the distance was 3-1/2" and Etrailer said it was 2". Needless to say when it arrived it measured 2" which is perfect for my 2016 Suburban. You may want to double check with etrailer on the 2" measurement before ordering in case the manufacturer has modified the design. While the anti-rattle pin does eliminate up and down motion a little left to right movement remains. I may fabricate a narrow shim to eliminate all movement but at this time I do not think it will be necessary. Since I am using this on what is almost the lowest height setting with the 2" ball the 2-5/8" ball is just 10 1/4" above the ground. The hitch balls are not removable from the sliding mount therefore you either have to be careful not to bottom out or for more clearance Fastway said I could cut the 2-5/8" ball off the mount. This would make the ground clearance 12-1/4" off the ground. As others have stated it is a beautiful piece of hardware and looks really sharp. I will likely leave on on permanently with a BOLT trailer hitch receiver lock. (Be sure to order the correct one!). Leaving it permanently mounted has one benefit- I think drivers from behind will be more wary of stopping too close and rear ending you and if they do rear end you at a slow speed it will absorb a bit of the impact thereby minimizing damage to your vehicle. Thank you etrailer.com for such excellent service and I highly recommend them for your hitch needs. 343105

EXCELLENT BALL MOUNT. This thing is 100 percent QUIET as installed!!! The adjustability is super to have. I now only need this ONE unit. I get many comments about how NICE this unit looks on my new Chevrolet Z/71 Crew Cab. Great service and pricing from Etrailer.com! Thanks again! 201071


Comments

Excellent unit.... with one exception. The removable dual ball section of the unit has rusted terribly. This piece should have been STAINLESS STEEL. The original unit is chrome plated steel. I am very disappointed with that thing rusting like it has in such a short time. I see that they offer a stainless steel replacement for $100. Too bad this option is not offered at purchase with a small upcharge. I have wanted to contact the manufacturer for replacement.... but I do not want to go through the hassle.

This is a solid well built aluminum ball mount but, on a 2015 dodge 2500 class 5 receiver the anti-rattle pin on the ball mount only catches 1/4 of the round pin in the receiver tube. The hole for the locking pin is close to the end of the tube of the receiver on the truck, so the ball mount sticks out in the receiver tube (in my opinion) too much for this to work as it was intended. Etrailer said it should work in there opinion but when you spend over 200 dollars for a ball mount it should work as intended and not "it SHOULD be fine?" Will be contacting Diversi-tech as well. etrailer is great a place to order from and quick shipment as well! 188318

It is difficult to find an adjustable, quality receiver hitch that also provides a way to secure BOTH the shank and the ball assembly to the vehicle against theft. The FastWay unit’s use of a secure Allen screw is certainly not ‘Fort Knox’ safe, but is more than its competitors have. I took advantage of a “used” unit etrailer listed and was very pleased upon receiving it that it was like new with only some minor scratches- just as described. 711441

Impressively constructed and beautiful polished aluminum finish. Easy to reverse hitch balls. Stainless hitch balls really nice. Like the fact that different max drop lengths are available as I only need 2” and don’t want the hitch hanging down too far below the receiver. Others have commented that the anti -rattle pin did not completely engage the receiver, but it fit perfectly on my 2015 F-150. Pulls with zero clunking or rattles. Worth the money. 617703

Very versatile, nice looking hitch. My 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 truck is very high, so the long drop of this hitch works in most cases. Sometimes I wish I had gotten one that is slightly shorter, but I use it with a variety of different trailers, so it's probably best to have all the height options that this one provides. 608420

Looks of the hitch are excellent. Adjustability extremely nice for use with my SUV and small cargo trailer. The extra drop length was required to have the trailer run level. Anti-rattle button for the receiver could be a little closer to the latch pin since the receiver does not have the secondary hole for use. 589015

Well made and well finished. I bought this particular hitch for two reasons - adjustability and the anti-rattle feature, both of which are handled well by this unit. My only "even better if" would be a single ball option, as I have dragged the lower ball passing through some dips 530017

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Adjustable Ball Mount that Reduces Rattle In 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
  • All ball mounts will rattle a little or you would not be able to fit them inside the receiver. I recommend part # DTSTBM6625. 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 a photo that shows where the adjustment is made to tighten the ball mount once it has been installed in the receiver opening. However this ball mount has a 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise...

  • Is the 2-1/2 Inch Sleeve Removable on Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mounts for 2-1/2 Inch Hitches
  • The reducer sleeve that comes with Diversi-Tech adjustable ball mount, # DTSTBM6625, cannot be removed from the shank. The fasteners holding it on are there for additional stability and support and the anti-rattle feature also prevents it from coming off. There are some options that might work for you though. You could use adjustable ball mount # DTALBM6600 for 2 inch hitches and the stand alone adapter sleeve, # DTADP35, when using it in a 2-1/2 inch receiver. I have included links...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount with a 2-1/2 Inch Shank and 2 Balls
  • Adjustable ball mount # DTSTBM6625 has a fixed sleeve. I have tired to take one off before and they just do not come off. It isn't welded but it is very much stuck on there making the unit solid as a rock. A similar ball mount, # WS6-25, does have an actual 2-1/2 inch shank, no sleeve, with the same 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise. It is rated for 14,500 pounds and comes with a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball. It also has a built in tongue weight scale. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount That Reduces Rattle In 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
  • 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...
