It's solid, aircraft-grade aluminum construction is durable, rust resistant, and sturdy enough to last for years to come.

The adjustable ball height lets you tow a variety of trailers with different tongue heights. Having both a 2" ball and a 2-5/16" ball allows for even more versatility, making this the ultimate go-to ball mount if you own multiple trailers.

Changing Ball Height and Replacing Balls

To adjust the height of the ball, remove the pin so that you are able to slide the ball platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Re-insert the pin once you have found the correct height and replace the clip.

Switching the hitch ball is just as easy. Simply remove the pin holding the ball platform in place and slide the platform off of the shank. Flip the platform upside down so that the ball you want to use is on top. Then slide the ball platform back onto the shank and replace the pin.

Video Transcript for Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway Flash E-series lines of adjustable two-ball mounts. If you have multiple trailers that you tow with your vehicle, it can be kind of a hassle even having just two ball mounts. Whether we're wanting to change the height for our different riser drops for our trailer, or if we have a different coupler size on our trailer, it can be a little cumbersome to have two or three or more ball mounts. That's where our Flash E-series is going to come into play. It's going to allow us to adjust the height very quickly, as well as the ball size to match up to any trailer that we need to.Our Fastway ball mounts are going to be available in a lot of different configurations. We're going to have the 2" shank that'll go into our 2" receiver tube opening, as well as a 2-1/2" shank that can fit in some of the bigger trucks.

They're going to be available in a a lot of different sizes of rises and drops, so you'll be able to pick whatever's going to match up to your multiple different trailers, and pick something in between so it'll work for all of them. Each one is going to be adjustable so you'll be able to fine tune it to match up to all those trailers. The way we're going to adjust our ball, is we're going to have this pin here. On the other side we'll have a clip, so you can go ahead and pull out our clip. We're going to remove the pin, we'll be able to slide that ball platform up or down to match up to our trailer, to get the height or drop that we need.Then we simply replace the clip, and we're ready to go.

Now, adjusting the height is important to match up to our trailer, but if we have a different coupler size, that's going to bring up another problem. Well, the Flash series is going to have two different balls on there. We're going to have a 2", as well as a 2-5/16" ball, and they're both going to be attached permanently to that ball platform, so we're not going to have to worry about carrying an extra bag, and having something else lying in our truck. We need to change out the ball, we can simply remove the pin, take the ball platform off, flip it over, and again find the appropriate rise or drop for our application, and then just put the pin and clip back.You'll notice it is going to have a really high polished look to it, almost a chrome finish. That's because it's going to be made out of an aircraft grade aluminum construction.

We're not going to have to worry about any weak points, because it's going to be made out of a solid piece, so we're not going to have any welds that potentially could break. A big benefit of an aluminum ball mount over the steel version, it is going to be a lot more lightweight, but still have all the same strength and durability the steel one is going to have. A lot of our customers are comparing some of the aluminum ball mounts to each other, and really they are going to be pretty comparable as far as the size, and different configurations that they're going to come in.The Flash E-series is going to have a leg up on the looks department, because it is going to be one of the only ones that has that super high mirror polish finish, and it's just going to complement a lot of the chrome on your vehicle, and look good on the back of it.All of our ball mounts that have a 2" shank are going to be a Class 4 rated, and the 2-1/2" shank is going to be a Class 5. So they're going to extra strong and be able to handle all those loads, but they're also going to be light in weight because they're made out of that aluminum. Each one of the balls is going to be a chrome-plated steel, so they're still going to have that really nice look to them, but they're going to have that durability to handle getting hooked up and unhooked all the time.You'll notice that we have our ball mount in a rise position.

If we needed to flip it over and put it in the drop position, it's a simple as pulling out the pin and clip, removing the entire assembly, and flipping it over. Then we can replace our pin and clip. I do want to mention that the pin and clip we're using is not included in the kit to secure it to the trailer hitch. However, there is a lockset available here at etrailer.com, that not only would secure it to the trailer hitch, but it also secures the ball platform to the mount itself.Since our ball mounts are going to have different sizes available, and it can be used in different configurations, you always want to double check the weight ratings. Once you figure out how much your trailer weighs, you always want to double check your hitch and your owner's manual and never exceed the lowest rating of all of them. Having the adjustability available with our ball mounts, switch out the balls, as well as the rise and drop, is a nice thing. But it doesn't do us any good if we don't know how to find the right rise and drop for our vehicle and trailer combination, so we'll show you how to do that.We'll start by removing our ball mount completely. You want to make sure that your tow vehicle, as well as your trailer, is on a nice, level ground so we can take a few measurements. We're going to start by measuring from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening. Our vehicle here is just about 17". Then we can move to our trailer, and you want to make sure that your trailer is nice and level also. We'll measure our trailer, and our trailer's right about 22-1/2". So there's about a 5-1/2" difference there. So we're going to want to go about 5, if not 6" of a rise, since our trailer coupler is higher than our truck.Let's take our ball mount, we're going to put it in the rise position since we're going to need that 5-1/2", 6" rise. We'll secure it into our hitch. Then we'll grab our ball platform, slide it over. We'll get it pretty close to where we need it, and we can secure it down and double check our measurements. We have our ball mount within that 1/2", so we can go and back up and hook up to our trailer, and hit the road. That'll finish up your look at the Fastway Flash E-series line of adjustable two-ball mounts.

Everything is fantastic with the hitch. Craftsmanship is Hugh quality and has performed flawlessly. Highly recommend. It’s constantly in the weather and still looks new. Great product

This product is very nice. It's a lot bigger than I first thought. It looks fantastic and it works great. We are towing a Palomino Puma FBC24 toy hauler with a 2014 Ram 2500 Tradesman. Shipping was fast...couldn't ask for any better service! 560693

- FA42-00-2925

Looks fantastic! Easy to adjust. Works like it should. I would recommend this product. Only negative would be that I cannot lower my tailgate with this ball mount as it is tighter to the truck than most. I drive a 2018 Ram 3500 609723

- FA42-00-2925

Perfect for my lifted truck. 595131

- FA42-00-2925

The FA42-00-2925 is a great hitch for the price, I needed the 10” drop to level my one trailer. The finish looks great. The fit is ok, I wish it was a little tighter fit on both the receiver and adjustable slide. I checked other models that were even looser, so went with this one. I didn’t notice any bad rattling from it, I just wish it was a little tighter fit. The one bad thing about it is because I needed the full 10” drop, the bottom ball on hitch would drag when I got in a serve elevation changing condition. If you could remove the bottom ball when not in use, this would completely remove this problem. Other than that it is a great hitch. I also purchased the 2 pcs locking kit for it so it doesn’t get ripped off! 602102

We do offer a weigh safe adjustable ball mount part WS10-25 with a 10 inch . The 2 inch ball and 2 5/16 inch ball are removable and interchangeable with each other. There is not a ball on the underside of ball mount so it will not hit the ground when there is low ground clearance.

Very fast shipment. Product looks great. etrailer one of best on the internet. 608917

This was a huge upgrade to my previous hitch. The 2 1/2 inch shank is better than my previous 2 inch hitch. It’s better put together, it has wider and heavier parts and the quality is vastly improved. I also love the finish it’s chromed aluminum not polished aluminum like my previous hitch. 564294

I purchased the Flash E Series heavy duty hitch. The hitch is designed to fit a 2 1/2 inch receiver. It is not only heavy (rated for 18,000 pounds), but has 10 inches of height adjustment, and comes with two different sizes of hitch balls.....and it is beautiful with its high-luster finish. I ordered the hitch on a Wednesday and received it two days later on a Friday....and that was with free standard shipping. I am very pleased. 517046

A product that turns a pickup into a truck. Darn thing looks so good, I'm not sure I actually want to hook anything up to it. Going to be used to tow travel trailers, horse trailers and a boat. Has the versatility to accommodate all kinds of tongue heights. Due to my 24" receiver height, I had to get the 10" drop to keep things level. I had initially ordered the 6" drop, and when I realized my short sightedness, the customer service team was excellent in helping me return it for the right product. I'll always go to etrailer first for my truck toy needs. 395017

Great product. Delivered in just a couple of days, 727110

- FA42-00-2925

Love it! It works As designed and has not corroded or discolored. Used approximately 20 days in the first year. FYI for a 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 the shank can be flipped up and still have the tailgate down without hitting. At the lowest setting and pulling into a steep driveway the bottom ball can drag. I also got the etrailer keyed alike locks so it doesn’t walk off. 726138

- FA42-00-2925

Great product. Easy to install and adjust. Had it for a year now and very little sign of rust and corrosion (still looks like new). Used it to pull my Ice Castle fish house, my boat, and snowmobile trailer. Planning on getting a large dump trailer to haul dirt and gravel with it next year. Also got the truck stuck last spring and used the hitch to tug it out of the mud with the tractor. I tugged on that hitch hard too - didn't bend or damage it at all. 721013

- FA42-00-2925

I put a six inch lift on me Ram 2500. This hitch gave me the drop that I need as well as the strength I need to pull my loaded 30 ft. Travel trailer and gear. It is very easy to adjust. I like everything about it. 719038
