Multiple Stacked Receivers for Easy Adjustment

stacked receivers

This unique mount from Gen-Y Hitch includes a ball mount that can be easily positioned in one of the 4 stacked receivers that sits along the vertical shank of the unit. This dual-ball mount lets you tow a trailer with a 2" ball coupler or a 2-5/16" ball coupler.


pintle hitch

Also included is a pintle lock, which can be inserted into the receiver directly above the ball mount to create a pintle hitch for hooking up a trailer with a lunette ring. Unlike other adjustable pintle hooks on the market, there are no nuts and bolts to remove and retorque when you change the positioning of this hitch. Just move the ball mount and pintle lock up or down to get the proper height and secure them in place with the included pins.


With the 4 stacked receivers, not only do you have the ability to adjust the height of the included ball mount, but you also have the ability to add various other hitch-mounted accessories. Insert a bike rack or cargo carrier. Mount a spare tire carrier. Use a tow bar to flat tow your vehicle. Or just add a fun hitch cover.

Video Transcript for Gen-Y Hitch Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - 325-GH-524 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Gen-Y adjustable receiver hitch. This unit has a 16,000 pound gross trailer weight rating and a 2,000 pound tongue weight rating. The unit slides into your two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. You'll notice it has a nice solid steel shank on it. It's a very heavy duty mount. It can be used in either the drop or rise positions and it provides up to a 7-1/2 inch rise or drop.

You'll notice that it has four slots here on the front face. Four adjustable positions, allows you to tow trailers with different coupler heights. It helps ensure that your towing setup is always as level as possible.When you have the Versa-Ball mount in this slot right here, that's pretty much even or straight out from where the hitch is on your vehicle. And this slot it would be a 2-1/2 inch drop. This one would be a five inch drop and this one would be 7-1/2 inch drop.

If you flip it over, you have those same measurements and height adjustments with it in the rise position as well. Each receiver opening measures two inches by two inches and the unit can be used for multiple purposes. It's a really great feature about this product.For example, you can use one of the top slots for a bike rack or a cargo carrier and then a lower position for towing a trailer. It can be used with any standard two inch ball mount, luggage rack, cargo rack, motorcycle carrier, bike rack and so on. The unit's fabricated with heavy duty steel so it's very strong and durable.

The mount is also precision milled and drilled for a perfect look and fit. It features a corrosion resistant design so on this portion of the mount, has a really nice texture and finish. That is a durable silver vein powder coating. Protects it from rust and corrosion, gives it a nice rugged look. The pintle lock and the Versa-Ball mount has a epoxy black powder coated finish and under that is a zinc primer.

Really nice durable design, you don't have to worry about rust or corrosion. The pins and clips are coated as well with protective finishing to keep them safe from the elements also.Again, this is your Versa-Ball mount, it is included. It has two hitch balls on it that way you can tow trailers with different coupler sizes. You have a two inch ball and a 2-5/16 inch ball. You can add on a 1-7/8 inch ball, that's what this center hole is for. That item is sold separately and available at etrailer.com. This little unit right here, this is the pintle lock for towing trailers that have a lunette ring. This would be the engaged position. That way it would secure the lunette ring and that's only to be used with a 2-5/16 inch ball. That pintle lock does have another position so if you're not using it, or if you're using the mount to tow a trailer that has a standard coupler on it, then you can move the pintle lock back to this position. That way it's out of the way. That's a nice design as well.When you want to make your adjustments with your ball, pull out the pin and clip, take it out, you can flip it over to switch between the two differently sized balls on the unit. And then you can slide into any one of the four slots that's available. You can stow it here on the backside, you can place that in, line up the pinholes and secure it in this position with the pin and clip also. Once you find the slot you need, you place it in there, line up your pinholes, secure it with the included pin and clip. When placing this inside your hitch, you will need to secure it with a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock. Those items are sold separately and available at etrailer.com. The pin holes on this unit will accept a standard 5/8 inch diameter pin. The unit's compatible with a Gen-Y weight distribution system, that available with part number 325-GH-302.The product's made in the USA. It comes with a lifetime guaranteed warranty. There are a few measurements I want to go over with you real quick. Again, I has two pin hole locations here on the back of the shank. You can use whatever one works best for your application. When using it in the rise position you want to make sure you use whatever one gives you the most amount of clearance 'cause you want to ensure that you have plenty of clearance from the rearmost part of the vehicle to the upright portion of the mount when it's in the rise position. Two pin holes allow a little bit of adjustment there. These are separated on center by an 1-1/2. I took a measurement from the center of this hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch balls, got a measurement of 12-1/4 inches. From the center of this pin hole to the center of the hitch balls is 13-3/4 inches. Overall length of this portion of the mount is about 12 inches. Overall length including the hitch balls, that's about 16 inches. And the overall height is 10-5/8th of an inch.That's going to do it for today's look at the Gen-Y adjustable receiver hitch.

Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise - 16K - 325-GH-524

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (47 Customer Reviews)

Insert this heavy-duty mount into your 2" hitch to get 4 stacked 2" receivers for mounting the included 2" ball, 2-5/16" ball, pintle hook, or other hitch-mounted accessory.

Heavy, well constructed, like the bolts that decrease/eliminate rattle. Bought this to replace my aluminum ball mount. For a 2” ball it was rated at 8,000 lbs, this one is 12,000 lbs. I can see why. It’s overkill if you are towing smaller trailers, waverunners, etc. But I upgraded for my boat which is about 8,000 lbs fully loaded. This should have not prbalrns holding up to that and more. 616431

Was going back and forth between this Gen-Y and a B&W trailer hitch. I have never had a B&W but I am sure it is a great product as well. I chose this Gen-Y because it has the added advantage of pulling a trailer with a pintle hitch. I have three trailers all with different set ups. A 2in, 2 5/16, and a pintle hitch. With this set up I can pull all three with the same hitch. Perfect for my needs. I ordered it on Sunday evening and it was at my door by Tuesday afternoon. Excellent product and service. 617050

I think the best way to describe this hitch is BEEFY! It is crazy durable and is the only hitch you will ever need considering you can later add weight distribution and sway control. 510532

It's very solidly built and easy to adjust. My only issue is that the pins to lock the ball and the pintle piece in place are not lockable. I'd be very upset if someone stole them out of the hitch. 459856

The hitch is a tank. Really impressed, however, the powder coat will not take long to rub off. I don’t care about that, you can always touch it up will spray paint. The quality and construction is really good and the service from Donna and etrailer is simply the best. I will always use etrailer from now on. 693468

Haven't used it yet, but MAN is this thing a beast. Very heavy duty and weighs a ton (68 lbs). I think this unit will be perfect for my trailers due to the varying tongue heights. I also like the ability to attach a trailer with the ring in front. 717928

This is a really solid product. The craftsmanship is great and it is American made. I'll never need to purchase another hitch. The service from Etrailer was also great. The product arrived ahead of schedule. 494305


Comments
The hitch is still fantastic. Ive used it to tow a variety of trailers 1000s of miles combined. I also like the fact that I can use the stacked receivers as a hitch extension to carry bike racks and cargo baskets.

This order was delivered super fast. Appears to be a solid hitch. It is giving me the lift I need without reducing my ground clearance. Previously purchased a GenY Torsion hitch from etrailer. Took a much longer period for it to arrive than this one. Had to switch to this one because truck had inadequate ground clearance to use torsion hitch in the trailer lifting position. 576389

Review from a similar Gen-Y Hitch Stacked Receiver Drop Hitch w Pintle in Ball Mounts


No complaints regarding etrailer experience Fast shipping and excellent customer service As far as gen y hitch looks extremely well built and will probably outlast truck trailer and me. Only complaint is my other hitches are adjustable in one inch increments which allows for perfectly level towing with any trailer with gen y the drops are in 3 inch increments which is fine for 2 of my trailers which have adjustable couplers but my enclosed trailer which I tow 5 days a week is a fixed coupler and I can only get close to level being said gen y sure beats the two weigh safe hitches I have wasted time and money on 595202

Review from a similar Gen-Y Hitch Stacked Receiver Drop Hitch w Pintle in Ball Mounts


Love the functionality of this hitch. The way it’s set up in the adjustability is great. Also by far the strongest hitch I’ve seen on the market The one downside I have is that after four trips towing the snowmobile trailer in the salt all the powder coating is flaking off and it is rusting very badly. I was hoping with a powder coated hitch that it would last more than a year before it would all start flaking off. Over all I would buy again. 671181

Beast! No doubt about the quality. Towing will definitely be better with this 39 lbs hitch. 473913


Comments
This hitch has towed by 22 boat from DC to Florida three times as well as locally. Ive had no problems other than some flaking on the ball, but a coating of grease hides that and makes for better towing.

Review from a similar Gen-Y Hitch Stacked Receiver Drop Hitch w Pintle in Ball Mounts


This has been a great heavy duty hitch for our company. It is on our truck year-round and is still in good condition (lots of road salt where we are). My only complaint is that if you use it as a pintle, the ring of the pintle has to be against the ball or else the latch won't slide all the way back into position. Worst case scenario is that you have to pull your truck forward an inch and set the parking brake so that it doesn't role back. Really not that big of a deal when you consider the versatility of this hitch. It wasn't that big of a deal and I ended up buying a few more of these. 738059
