Ball mount shank showing pin in lowered positionBall mount shank showing pin in raised position

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 Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - DTSTBM6800 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number DTSTBM6800. This is the Fastway Flash Solid-Tow Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount. Everything that you need is included. You're going to have the ball platform, a two different size hitch balls and you're going to have the ball mount. It's also going to have with the included Allen tool. The Allen tool is going to operate three different Allen bolts on the system.

It's going to operate this Allen bolt right here which controls the pin at the back of the ball. In order to get the ball platform onto the ball mount we have to bring in that pin, that's flash with this back wall and it's going to allow to slide up and down the channel here to the different mounts. We got that set. There's also a safety lock screw on this side and we just want to back off of that a couple of threads before we install. Then right here we have a tension pin. This portion here is the portion that's going to slide into the receiver tube of our hitch.

Once we have that in there and we have our pin holes lined up and we have a five eights inch pin and clip or pin and lock installed. That is going to be sold separately, you can refer to our website, part number PC3 is a good option it's a five eights pin that comes with a clip. Once you have that in there and secured you can actually tighten this down. It's going to push the tension pin up which is going to apply pressure against the inside of the hitch. That is the designed to take out any rattle or wobble that you may have inside the hitch, that's their anti-rattle system. Please keep in mind that you can only take advantage of that feature when you have the ball mount installed in the drop position. Now we'll go ahead and install everything.

We're going to set it in its lowest setting. Its got these notches here along the side. If we make sure that the top of the platform is in line with the lowest notch it's going to set it at its lowest setting and you can see how easily that would adjust up and down the mount. Once you have your height chosen simply just start tightening up this bolt. It's going to secure it in place.

Another good way to make sure that you have everything installed correctly is this bolt will actually lay flash with the face of the ball platform. That let's you know that it's just seated correctly in that hole. Tighten that down all the way then we can come over here tighten up the safety lock screw, secure everything in place. The adjustable ball mount makes it very easy for you to hold different trailers. The ball height will adjust an increments of one inch that you can easily switch between trailers with different tongue heights. The ball platform is reversible so you can swap between the two different size balls simply by taking the platform off, flipping it over and then reinstalling it. Again it's going to have the self tensioning and anti-rattle solid tow system. It's going to tighten the ball mount inside the receiver tube of the hitch. The ball mount portion is going to be machined from a solid piece of aluminum. It's going to be very lightweight but very strong. It also avoids weld which can easily calls weak points that may break overtime. The entire unit is going to future a nice polished finish that creates a high quality appearance. The hitch balls are designed and constructed from a sturdy steel and solid steel construction with a nice chrome plating on it. The system is designed to fit two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers. It's going to give us a two inch ball and two and five-sixteenth inch ball. When using the two inch ball you're going to have a capacity of 7500 pounds and 10,000 pounds when using the two and five-sixteenth inch ball. Let's go over a few measurements. With the mount in this position, this is our drop position and it's at its lowest setting. Measuring from the ball platform to the inside top edge of the receiver tube of the hitch it's going to give us a drop of eight inches. If we flip this over to the rise position and we take that same measurement it's going to give us a maximum rise of nine inches. Now the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar that's going to give us a measurement of four and one quarter of an inch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball is going to give us a measurement of eight and a half inches. That's going to do for today's review of part number DTSTBM6800. This is the Fastway Flash Solid-Tow Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount. .

There is a problem with the product. I had indicated that my vehicle was a Ford Explorer. I purchased this product specifically for the non-rattle aspect. Unfortunately the receiver on the Explorer is too short to allow the non-rattle apparatus in the actual receiver. Therefore this aspect is useless. Any suggestions? 405842

Very happy with the quality of this hitch. Works on my 2005 dodge ram 2500 as well my 2014 dodge durango. With a standard hitch I could hear and feel the hitch banging around when connected to my durango but with this hitch it was nice and quiet. The only down side I have found is the tension pin does not go fully into the receiver of my durango but it still worked. I would recommend this hitch to anyone. 217897

I shopped a lot online to try to find the perfect ball mount (I'm very particular.) I really liked being able to watch a video of each individual product and how it operates, so that I could make an informed decision based off more than a couple stock photos like what other stores are offering. Shipping was shockingly quick, considering I bought the lowest grade shipping option offered. The ball mount adjusts smoothly and easily, and fits my receiver better than any I've owned before. I am extremely impressed by my dealings with eTrailer, as well as with the product itself! 212108

I love the idea.....but I have a couple problems with the hitch. First, it will only work on one of my two tow vehicles. The 2" shaft for the receiver pin is not long enough to clear my bumper. The other problem I have is that the bar that adjusts the height of the two balls should have a couple more holes drilled for more height settings. I will say the build quality is fantastic. 151344

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

Shipping was good arrived on schedule date. Used it to tow my 8,000 lb. boat was nice to be able to raise the trailer so it was level and not having the tongue of the trailer lower than the rear of the trailer. Now when I tow my small boat with 13" tires all I have to do is flip the ball mount and lower it. Great Product well made and in the USA. 85667

I ordered thie DTSTBM6800 for my GMC HD2500. The quality is great. You cannot turn the ball to the inside because the holes do not go all the way through the vertical drop beam. The rattle free screws do as advertised... prevent rattling. Unfortunatelly DT does not offer this in a 2 1/2 inch size to fit my 2011 GMC HD2500. The sleeve that comes with the truck reduces the receiver size from 2.5 inches to fit the 2 inch receiver... this is the part that rattles and drives me crazy!!! I'm currently troubleshooting to resolve this issue. 9611

Diversi-Tech does make adjustable ball mounts for 2-1/2 inch hitch receivers. For example the # DTALBM6825
Self-Locking, Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls - 2.5" Hitch - 8" Drop, 9" Rise
$271.60
is the same as the one that you mentioned, and it has an integrated sleeve to work with 2-1/2 inch hitches.

I'm impressed with the fit, finish, & quality of this adjustable ball mount. The adjustment is quick/easy and it doesn't rattle like most other ball mounts I've used. Another key feature for me is that this mount is constructed of aluminum. My truck is exposed to the elements of New England (excessively salted roads & living on the Seacoast), so I will never have to worry about this mount deteriorating due to rust. 8635

Review from a similar Fastway Solid Tow in Ball Mounts


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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Review from a similar Fastway Solid Tow in Ball Mounts


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.

-- comment by: Jonathan H - 02/23/2014

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.

Excellent product. I installed on my 2014 Ram 1500 and the anti rattle pin was completely inside the receiver unlike what some of the other reviews show. There is absolutely no rattling. I believe the part number is diversitech, but this is in fact a fastway flash ballmount. As always, quick shipping from etrailer and the best price I've seen anywhere. 521230

Review from a similar Fastway Solid Tow in Ball Mounts


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

Review from a similar Fastway Solid Tow in Ball Mounts


Pictures do not do this drop mount justice! When I ordered it, I was a little leery of how well it would handle the weight of my race trailer, and if it would reach. Once I opened the box and had it in hand, I knew I'd be just fine! I've tested it out on a quick trip up and over a grade- just to make sure that there aren't any surprises when I really need it. It worked perfectly! The hitch didn't make a sound while driving loaded or unloaded. Also, the 10" drop was perfect for my 2016 Sierra with a 9" lift on 35" tires. In fact, I probably have enough room to jump up to bigger tires and still tow a low-framed trailer! 363236

Review from a similar Fastway Solid Tow in Ball Mounts


BEWARE ... product comes without the pin that connects to the truck hitch. You might think that spending $250 on a receiver/ ball combo that the pin would also come with. Or you might think that when ordering this part a "flag" of some sort would pop up during check out.... I was wrong on both accounts. Very disappointing. 147218

Review from a similar Fastway Solid Tow in Ball Mounts


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

Review from a similar Fastway Solid Tow in Ball Mounts


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

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Are the Balls on the Diversi-Tech Solid-Tow Adjustable Ball Mount # DTSTBM6800 Replaceable
  • The hitch balls for the Diversi-Tech Solid-Tow Adjustable Ball Mount, # DTSTBM6800, are easily removable and replaceable. You simply thread the front allen bolt all the way in, slide the balls out of the ball platform and insert the new hitch balls. I made a short video for you showing how this is done. We also carry replacement hitch balls. For a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball set, you can use part # DTBM28 and for a 1-7/8 inch and 2 inch ball set, use part # DTBM23.

  • Can Sleeve on Diversi-Tech # DTSTBM6825 Ball Mount Be Removed for Use in a 2 Inch Hitch
  • The 'sleeve' on the # DTSTBM6825 is fixed in place and is not removable. I do have a suggestion for you, however. Go with the ball mount for a 2 inch receiver, part # DTSTBM6800 and when you need to use it in your 2-1/2 inch receiver, use a reducer sleeve like part # 58102. This ball mount also uses a 2 and a 2-5/16 ball and has a 10K capacity. This is an identical ball mount, minus the sleeve.

  • Distance From Center of Hitch Pin Hole to Anti-Rattle Device on Fastway Adjustable Ball Mounts
  • On the Solid-Tow Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTSTBM6800 it measures 2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the anti-rattle pin on top of the shank. That would mean half of it would make contact with your hitch and the other half would outside of the hitch opening since your hitch pin is 2 inches from the center of it's hitch pin to the end of the hitch opening. This would be enough for it to still function. I have included a link to a video review...

  • How to Determine the Right Rise or Drop Needed when Choosing a Ball Mount
  • The amount of clearance needed is going to be different for every vehicle, trailer, and possible terrain you may encounter. For example, a lifted truck towing a large travel trailer through the plains would not have a problem with ground clearance. A minivan towing a pop up camper in the mountains and offroad is likely going to encounter ground clearance issues if the adjustable ball mount drops low enough. What you can do is determine the amount of drop you need by taking a few measurements....

  • Will the Adjuster/Tensioner Screw Come Loose When Towing a Trailer
  • I spoke with my contact at Diversi-Tech about the Adjustable Solid-Tow Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTSTBM6800. He stated that the unit has a binding nut to lock it in place. This creates a double redundancy to keep the unit from coming loose. He also stated that this particular unit is not intended for use in harsher climates where a lot of salt is used on the roadways in the winter if you plan on leaving the mount attached to the vehicle all the time. It is also recommended that you grease...

  • Aluminum Ball Mount with 8 Inch Drop to Position a Trailer Inside a Garage
  • Whether or not the lower ball would make contact with the ground depends on how high up the tow vehicle is. If you were to measure from the ground to the top of the receiver tube on the vehicle when on level ground, then subtract 8 inches, that will give you an idea of where the bottom of the TOP ball will be. That alone should tell you if the lower ball would be too low. You do not want to cut the ball because it will void the warranty and also make the ball mount unsafe to use. There...

  • Aluminum Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 8 inches of Drop
  • I have a solution for you, but if you need up to an 8 inch drop the Andersen ball mount part # AM3411 that you referenced can only do a max drop of 5-1/2 inches. For a similar adjustable ball mount that can do up to 8 inches you would want the part # DTSTBM6800 instead.

  • Problem Replacing Diversi-Tech Stainless Double Ball # DTBM28 on Diversi-Tech DTSTBM Ball Mounts
  • Thank you for your recent purchase. The Diversi-Tech Replacement Stainless Double Ball # DTBM28 that you purchased from etrailer will fit several of their ball mounts. For applications with the Solid-Tow Series the correct procedure which you followed is to tighten the set screw all the way in so that the ball can be removed. In other applications it is okay, according to my technical contact at Diversi-Tech, to back the screw out instead. In either case you need to get it out of the...

  • Hitch and Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis Needing a 3 inch Rise
  • For a Class III 2 inch hitch for your 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis you would want the Curt Hitch part # 13707. When we installed this hitch on a similar vehicle we found that from the ground to the top of the hitch opening was 13-1/4 inches. Assuming the rental company you talked to was right, and their trailers will be about 16 inches from the ground to the bottom of the coupler you would need about a 3 inch rise. I think your best solution would be to get the etrailer.com ball mount...

  • Possible Adjustments On Solid-Two Adjustable Ball Mount # DTSTBM6800
  • You can choose to insert the shank of the Solid-Tow Adjustable Ball Mount # DTSTBM6800 into your trailer hitch so the vertical bar rise above the shank rather than drops below it. By doing this, you will gain additional height for your trailer, up to a 9-inch rise. I have included a link to our FAQ page on how to select the correct rise/drop ball mount. Inverting the mount in this way will not change the 10,000 lb total weight capacity or the 1500 lb tongue weight capacity of this product...

  • Tongue Weight Capacity for Fastway Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # DTSTBM6800
  • The Fastway Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # DTSTBM6800 referenced in your question features a 1,000 pound tongue weight capacity, regardless of which ball you are using. The towing capacity will change based on the ball size; 8,000 pounds with the 2 inch ball and 10,000 pounds with the 2-5/16 inch ball. Using the ball mount in the drop or rise position will not affect its weight capacitiy at all. I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.

  • It sounds like you have an adjustable ball mount like the Fastway Solid-Tow 2-Ball Mount # DTSTBM6800 that features both a 2 inch ball and a 2-5/16 inch ball. If this is the model you have, you can easily replace the hitch balls with # DTBM28.
