Changing Ball Height and Replacing Balls

To adjust the height of the ball, remove the included pins so that you are able to slide the ball platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Re-insert the pins once you have found the correct height. Switching the hitch ball is just as easy. Simply remove the pins 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 pins and clips.

Video Transcript for Fastway Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - FA49-00-5600 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the Flash solid steel adjustable two ball mount for two inch hitches. This ball mount, with the included hitch balls, lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank slides into the receiver tube of your hitch, and then the hitch balls provide the connection point for your trailer's coupler.This does feature an adjustable height design, so that way you can tow trailers of different heights using the same vehicle and the same ball mount. It also ensures that you get your setup as level as possible. All you have to do is remove the pins and clips, and then you can slide that platform up and down the shank and secure it in place by reinstalling the pins and clips.It also comes with two differently-sized hitch balls, so you've got a two inch ball, and a two-and-five-sixteenths inch ball made from durable steel with chrome finishing. To switch between the balls, you just remove the platform, flip it over and reinstall it.

Having the two different sizes on hand really lets you tow trailers with different coupler sizes, and you can switch between trailers quickly and easily.The unit is made from a durable steel construction. We have a nice, solid forged steel shank. It offers exceptional strength and commercial-grade towing capacity, and it's all protected with a nice durable, glossy finish to resist rusting corrosion. Now to secure it in your hitch, you will need a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock. Those items are sold separately and available at etrailer.com.

This product is made in the U.S.A. Now, when you're ready to make your adjustments, again, all you have to do is pull the pins and clips and then you can take this and slide it up and down anywhere along the shank, as long as you get two holes to match up and you get both pins and clips to install.When you want to switch between the balls, you just flip it over and reinstall it by lining up the holes and reinstalling your pins and clips. It's a really nice, easy-to-use design. You can make your adjustments quickly and easily. Again, it's a nice, durable steel construction that is designed for a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver.

Again, you get a two inch and a two-and-five-sixteenths inch ball. Gross towing weight capacity with the two-and-five-sixteenths inch ball is 12,000 pounds, and the gross towing weight capacity with the two inch ball is 8,000 pounds. The unit has a tongue weight capacity of 1,200 pounds.If you're using this in a drop position and if you have the mount at the lowest setting, it's gonna give you a maximum drop of six inches. That's from the inside top edge of the receiver, the tip of your hitch down to the top of the ball platform. If you're using it in the rise position and you have the platform at the highest setting, it's gonna give you a maximum rise of seven inches, and then the adjustment holes are separated on center by one inch, so that's your incremental height adjustment.

A few measurements I wanna mention for you real quick. The distance that we got from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch balls is around nine inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright right here, that's about three-and-three-quarter inches. That's important to know when you're using this in the rise position. You wanna make sure that you have enough clearance right here from the rearmost point of your vehicle to that upright.That's gonna do it for today's look at the Flash solid steel adjustable two ball mount for two inch hitches.

Just received the hitch on Friday and it is even more heavy duty than I was expecting. I have not had a chance to put on the truck yet. Normal shipping only took 2 days for me which is outstanding. 612283

When reviewing, I try to review as to what was described and what I expected. People that compare one product to another will usually find disappointment. With that being said, this exceeded my expectations. The build quality of this is great. It is the heaviest receiver I have personally lifted which tells me it is built with some strong, heavy metal. The finish is glossy and smooth with no burs to snag your hands. The balls are integrated into the unit which seems to make this feel more solid and you don't have to worry about a crescent wrench to tighten or loosen them. The adjustability of this unit is easy, by pulling the two pins, it can be moved up and down to the height described. I personally bought this unit for my 2018 Ford F150 Supercrew 4x4 5.5' bed 3.5L ecoboost w/3.55 gears and max tow pkg. I can safely tow 12,800 lbs. with my truck and so this unit will be perfect for towing 10,000 lbs. since it is rated for 12k. I plan to use this to tow a 3k lbs dump trailer with a 7k lb load for a total of 10k lbs. I feel this unit is the best receiver you can buy for the money. Yes there are other brands that market to different people and there are diff features on other units that look neat. However, at the end of the day, all I needed was something to keep my trailer attached to my truck and this unit will do so at the lowest price available. Hope this unbiased unpaid review gives you the information you need to make the right decision. 749570

I am truly impressed with this product. It was packaged well by the manufacturer and upon inspection, I think this was a great choice for my specific needs. I am sure we will get years of use pulling the boat and the horse trailer using this item. Only time will tell, but i am confident it will hold up well. 574107

Hitch was great, however the locking pin I purchased with it was CHEAP CHEAP....hitch got stolen in my driveway...meaning the thief did not have to expend much effort in getting the "locking" pin off....we or my 3 dogs would have heard the noise 732684

Review from a similar Fastway Flash Solid Steel Series in Ball Mounts


Shipping was fast from etrailer and the price was good. I used the hitch to pull a flat bed out of storage, but haven't gone down the road yet. It is easy to use and very heavy duty. As some other reviews mention, there is a little too much of a gap so the hitch may rattle in the hitch when in use. There may be a product out there that can be used to fill-in and stop the rattle. I also bought the Hitch Locks (FA86-00-4225) and they work great. For the price, this is a great adjustable ball mount. 735451

Review from a similar Fastway Flash Solid Steel Series in Ball Mounts


I have a 2018 Ram 2500 and was in the market for a hitch. So as usual I go and check out etrailer. I was initially wanting a 8 inch drop but couldn’t find a style I liked. I personally didn’t want aluminum nothing against them just wanted steel. Finding information sometimes can be difficult so this is my main reason for review. As for etrailer I ordered this on a Tuesday afternoon and was at my house by noon on Wednesday. I was expecting Friday possibly Monday for delivery. This hitch is heavy. Fits in receiver good also stays close to bumper for better handling of to tongue weight and also to save your shin pretty sure you run into this thing you won’t forget it. I haven’t towed with this hitch yet but very confident it will be no problem. I have included some photos to help. This truck is all stock. The only negative if there is one is with the hitch in receiver and you hit a decent bump it does let you know it is in receiver. 601649

The fit is good, the adjustment works smoothly. I think this will be a good purchase as I pull several different trailers a man lift and my boat this should wok well with each to get the correct trailer height. 619898

Very well made. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the tolerance going into the receiver could be a little tighter. Overall the the construction is great and it’s simple to adjust. 673013

Well made product. HD definitely stands for heavy duty. Double the towing capacity of my aluminum hitch. 5/8" hitch pin should be included to make it more convenient to use right out of the box for first time users. 580456

Product came in 4 days of ordering, very heavy duty feel. Can't wait to actually hook it to the my dump trailer later this weekend. I do wish there was a way to lock the ball head to the hitch. 654064


Comments
If you want Fastway does offer FA86-00-4225 as a locking option. One of the locks is for locking the adjustable ball platform, and the other lock is to lock the shank in your receiver.

  • Will Bolt Hitch Lock Fit Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5600
    We do have BOLT hitch locks that would lock the shank of the Fastway Weight Distribution Head part # FA49-00-5600 that you mentioned. For that you'd want the part # BL7018447 for a Ford key, part # BL7023582 for a center cut GM key etc. If you have a different key check out the link I attached that shows all of the Bolt hitch locks we carry.

  • How are Hitch Balls Secured to Mount on Flash Solid Steel Adjustable Ball Mount
    I reached out to the manufacturer who said the hitch balls on the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable Ball Mounts are a solid piece that has a bolt running through it inside the mount. What this means is that there is zero chance of it coming apart while you are towing your trailer. Simply abide by the capacities of the hitch and it is extremely safe. There are a number of Flash Solid Steel Ball Mounts, each of which comes with a 2" and 2-51/6" hitch balls and the correct one for your needs...
