Video Transcript for Review of Fastway Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - FA54FR

Today we're going to take a look at the Fastway Flash two ball mount with the built in tongue weight scale for a two inch hitch. Now this ball mount with the included hitch balls will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank right here is what will slide into your two inch hitch receiver opening, and the hitch balls will provide the connection point for your trailer coupler.Now this ball mount will allow you to measure your tongue weight to determine if you can safely tow by just simply coupling the trailer to those fall mouth. The tongue weight scale here that's built into the ball mount platform helps you balance the trailer, promotes safe towing, lets you know if your load needs to be adjusted before you even start to tow. That's a very simple operation. It will automatically provide a measurement every time you couple your trailer coupler to the ball right here.

It's very efficient, hassle-free, eliminates the need for separate or commercial scales.Now we'll measure the tongue weight. Let me just zoom in here so we can talk about the scale itself. You see the scale there. The marks are at 0, 200, 400, 600, 800 and 1000 pounds when they're centered on the mark. Now if it's halfway between those centered on the marks, then the halfway marks are at 100, 300, 500, 700, and 900 pounds, but it gives you a quick indication of what your tongue weight is so you can adjust it right away.Zoom back out here.

This also offers a nice adjustable height to let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. You just slide this ball mount platform up or down the shank and then install the pin and clips. What we're going to do is I'm going to take the clip out, slide the pin out and you can see right now it's in the drop position, so you can slide it up or down. Maximum drop is the bottom position. That'll give you three and a half inches.

That's going to be measured from the top of the ball platform to the top of the shank right here, so you can see there's your three and a half inches.Now you can also use this in the rise position. What you have to do is just switch the shank over and drop it in this case and then if you put it in the highest rise position, it's going to measure five inches from the top of the ball platform to the top of the shank. These adjustment holes, they are incremental height adjustment of one inch, so center to center on these holes is one inch, so you can correctly get your trailer level with your tow vehicle.Now it also has two different size hitch balls. It'll let you tow your trailers with different coupler sizes. This is a two inch ball right here.

The larger one is a two and 5/16 stamina ball, and you can interchange them. The balls are chrome hitch balls. They are corrosion resistance. Basically to switch the balls, all you have to do is pull the pin out like we did, remove it from the shank, and if you look right here, there's a retaining lock pin that you just pull this out, and it's in there very tight because it does have a little rubber seal on it. Once you pull that out, you can pop out the two inch ball, drop in the two and 5/16 ball, line your pin back up with the hole, push it all the way in there.Now it is a little tight. When you go to push that in, you have to put some pressure on it. Sometimes I take this pin, because of that seal, and once you do that, that'll push it in all the way and you've got your connection, and then you just attach it just like that and you're ready to go with the larger ball.This is an aluminum shank and mounting platform. Provides superior strength, durability. It's very light. Solid block construction provides greater strength than hollow steel competitors, while still maintaining that lightweight, and it's rustproof for a clean finish that'll stand the test of time. Now when you do install this into your hitch receiver, it will require a 5/8 inch diameter hitch pin and clip. Our hitch lock, which we do sell separately on our website. If you already have one that's 5/8 inch diameter, you can use that, if you need one, again, we do sell them separately.This part as made in the USA. The specs, again, this is designed to fit a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. Now the gross towing weight capacity when it's used with the two inch ball, it'll be stamped on the top, 8,000 pounds. When used with the two and 5/16 diameter ball, it'll have 10,000 pounds stamped on it. Maximum tongue weight will be 1000 pounds.So again, just like this, you can see you can adjust it up or down in the drop position, flip it over and adjust it up or down in the rise position. Once you get it to where you need it, just line the hole up, put your pin through, put your clip on the other side. Just like that you're ready to go. But that should do it for the review on the Fastway Flash two ball mount with the built in tongue weight scale for a two inch hitch.

Nicely polished with good final machine surfaces. High load rating. Not sure what Alluminum Alloy it is. My guess is 6061 or 7075. Nice product and quality in comparision to other aluminum mounts. Packaged well and arrived quickly. 180069

Review from a similar Fastway Flash in Ball Mounts


I have had this on my truck for over a year now with no issues. Works great and the spring loaded ball bearings keep the ballmount from rattling around in the hitch. I have towed an equipment trailer with a 7,500 lb tractor on it on several occasions with no issues. The only signs of corrosion are around the receiver opening where rust from the hitch has stained the aluminum. This could be eliminated if the ball mount was stored somewhere other than in the hitch. 109234

Good Looking and strong....just like I used to be. Perhaps the nicest thing is that the good people at etrailer were able to change our ship to location mid ship. Thanks very much for doing that. 129313

Was not sure what quality of hitch I would receive only seeing it in pictures. This peice is light weight and the machining was perfect, fit perfectly in the reciever, Great hitch for the price. 644582

Very nice looking drop hitch, light weight and nicely machined and polished. The only thing I would improve is that the ball bearings for the anti-rattle feature do not extend far enough to work in my receiver (a Curt XD) but that is just my own personal truck. 86517


Comments
After owning this hitch for about a year I still love it. I put a quick change ball on it and it stays on my truck year round. If you care about the anti-rattle you might want to pass, the ball bearings came out within 6 months of use.

Thanks for the follow up. Diversi-Tech has changed the design of this style of ballmounts and has eliminated the ball bearings.

Aluminum Ball Mount This is an excellent ball mount. It is light weight, super strong, (14,000 lbs GTW rating), fairly inexpensive considering it's performance, and not to mention, it's super shiny and looks great on my new truck. It has handled my boss's landscaping trailer (7,000 lbs loaded) and his dump trailer (up to 12,500 lbs) without a single issue. One more thing with this being aluminum, I don't have to worry so much about it rusting in the winter time with the salt on the roads. Also the service from etrailer was A+. It was shipped out the same day I ordered it and arrived quickly. Thanks a lot guys for the great products and customer service. 3452

High tow rating and lighter than steel! 347176


Comments
Its good. Rattles a little. Miss the anti rattle bead. Wish they made an 8 as my 6 is just a bit to high. Makes putting the trailer on and off kinda difficult sometimes. Id by an 8 if they made it right now. All in all for the price its a great, light high rated ball mount.

Thanks for the feedback. We do not currently offer an 8 inch drop ball mount, but I have provided a link to our adjustable ball mounts that would cover this range for you.

Review from a similar Fastway Flash in Ball Mounts


This ball mount is top quality, aircraft grade, billet aluminum… and far nicer in appearance than I would've expected. It is obviously CNC machined, and highly polished afterwards. This ball mount is also surprisingly light in weight, considering it is milled from a solid piece of aluminum bar stock. Another positive point to this type of construction method is that there are no welds to fail. This tough mount will no doubt outlast my truck, and can handle 4300 lbs. more tow capacity than my vehicle's gross towing capacity! It will be a real shame the first time I overshoot my trailer and gar this beautiful ball mount, but it is bound to happen. The "anti-rattle" ball-type tensioners are a nice touch, which quiet down the hitch while trailering, or on rough roads. I highly recommend spending a little more than you would for a painted steel ball mount, and purchasing this solid aluminum beauty instead. It will look nicer for much longer, won't corrode, and conducts electricity, (for those of you whose trailer plugs aren't wired with a ground, and rely the ball to coupler contact to complete the ground between your tow vehicle and trailer, you won’t have to file off any paint to get a good ground contact). Bottom line: this is a great product; etrailer.com has friendly and knowledgeable customer care staff, who offer fast, first-class service and shipping. I will definitely do business with etrailer.com again. Thanks so much! Joseph in Ojai CA. 117094


Comments
Just a quick note, grounding through the ball and mount is not a great idea, especially with aluminum. Aluminum is not a great electrical conductor to begin with, but in applications where weight is a concern it is used. Back in the 60s, they tried using aluminum wiring after in residential construction, but quickly went back to copper when prices came back down. Furthermore, these ball mounts are highly polished, but left in the white. Aluminum will not rust or corrode, but the surface will oxidize. Over time you will notice it is not as shiny as when new. That haze is surface oxidation that will further inhibit electrical conduction. And of course, as the ball mount moves in the hitch, ground connection can become erratic. A good copper wire ground is always best way to ground a trailer.

Love it. Light weight yet 2000lb tounge weight. Just mounted a new ball, perfect fit in 1" hole. Bought the new ball bearing locking pin sprayed a little silicone inside lock before locking my new hitch to truck. All very nice. Will likely buy another to mount a larger ball so i don't have to swap balls. Was concerned the locking pin would be too short but there is 1/4" extra length, just fine. 285888

After about 1.5 - 2 years of of daily use this Ball mount failed big time. I was driving about 35 mph and the ball mount broke at the ball opening. My trailer detached and was dragging behind my truck. ball mount is fine if you don't use it a lot I guess. I will not buy again. 241714

Received the aluminum trailer hitch from e-trailer and it is definitely a work of art. It is highly polished and will look great once I attach the stainless steel ball to it.

No problems, works great. And added bonus: My Tundra was rear ended by a Camry. Camry totaled by hitch, hitch not a scratch!
JMcQ - 10/11/2019

Thanks for the follow up and reply. With all rear end collisions involving ball mounts, hitch accessories, and trailer hitches it is best to replace all the components involved in the incident. IT is possible that there could be small cracks that aren't readily visible to the naked eye that could adversely affect the capacity, and capability of the hitch on your Tundra. Additionally, it might be worth it to have the attachment points of your hitch to your Tundra inspected to make sure there is no damage to the frame of your Tundra.

This ball mount not only looks good, but it functions very well. I have had no problems with it whatsoever. I use a stainless ball which I purchased from etrailer and it too works very well. I switch this ball mount and ball between my F-150 and a Jeep Rubicon and it works perfectly for both pulling two very different kinds of trailers. I do not keep it on either vehicle very long after use as it tends to attract attention and I don't want someone trying to steal it or other items from the vehicle. 567055

Well built, it is made in America so... Finish is beautiful. Lightweight and perfect replacement to the rusted up crappy looking reese hitch.

I have a new pickup. I wanted to get something that wouldn't rust so badly. I ordered this DTBM4600. When I opened the box I was amazed at the quality of this reciever. It is so beautiful I don't want to bring it outside. It is solid aluminium. It is perfect looking and you can tell it will hold up to any task. I can't say enough about how happy I am that I found this product. Get it it's well worth it. 526557
