Video Transcript for Fastway Hitch Adapters - Hitch Reducer - DTADP35 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway Adapter Sleeve with the included hitch lock. This designed to let your Fastway or Diversi-Tech DTLBM and DTALBM series mounts fit into a 2 1/2 inch receiver. It's going to include two sets of pinholes. One set lines up with the locking pins of the ball mount. The other set lines up with the hitch pin holes in the 2 1/2 inch receiver. The unit is made from a steel construction.

It's going to feature a black powder coated finish, which is going to keep it safe and protected from rust and corrosion. It's also going to come with a long span hitch lock. The long span design easily fits 2 1/2 receivers. This is a chrome-plates steel when it comes to the construction. That's going to ensure that the lock will look good for a long time and it's going to make sure it resists rust and corrosion. Very nice, easy-to-use design.

It only requires a quarter of a turn of the key to get the lock off of the pin. Snaps back into place. That's going to feature the tube-style keys and the tube-style lock cylinder. That's going to provide better security than standard key mechanisms. It's much harder to pick and it's more difficult to duplicate keys.

It's also going to feature a water-tight cap that's going to do a good job at keeping dirt and moisture out of the lock to prevent corrosion. It's going to come with two keys. The product is made right here in the USA. Again, it is designed to make your mount compatible with a 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 trailer hitch receiver. Overall length, edge to edge, is going to measure about 6 5/16 of an inch to 6 3/8 of an inch. The holes on the unit, these are separated on center by, looks to be 2 1/8 of an inch.

If we measure from the center of this hole to the edge, that's going to give us a measurement of about 2 1/16 of an inch. Doing the same thing on this side. It's going to be about 2 1/8. Right in that same area. Last thing that I want to mention is just the usable pin length. Right here I'm going to measure inside edge to inside edge. That's going to give us a measurement of about 3 5/8 of an inch. That's going to do it for today's look at the Fastway Adapter Sleeve with the included hitch lock.

The receiver sleeve was to tight for my locking ball hitch, which is made by the same company. I spent 3 hrs filing the inside in order for it to fit. It was shipped on time and no fault of the selling company (etrailer) but the manufacturer. 162164

I used my adapter sleeve and hitch lock today and they worked perfectly. It was shipped quickly and packed well. Good experience buying from etrailer.com. 375021

This items works really well as the hitch I have ($300+) was for a 2" opening and my new truck has a 2.5" opening. This items bridges the gap although it does make the hitch unit extend about 1' to 1.5" further out. Not an issue if you have adequate chain length. 360937

Should help keep the hitch in the family. Locks are meant to keep honest people honest. 342704

The website is very easy to navigate and the ordering process was painless and quick. The thing that impressed me was the follow-up in communication throughout the entire process. The item purchased was pretty basic but based on the price, level of service and prompt delivery, I would definitely utilize etrailer.com again. 170827

works great, lightweight and fits perfectly with my 2" DT locking ball mount. Etrailer shipped to my house within a couple days 169009

by:

Customer service was great, would certainly recommend etrailer to anyone. As for the adapter sleeve...its like others have mentioned, the adapter sleeve does not accommodate for the two top-molded nubs in place to help stabilize the ball mount hitch. 152684

by:

As advertised. Holes are a tight fit. Needed some grease to fit my 2" locking ball mount into it. It's not going anywhere now. 141621

I bought this to use with DTALBM6600 in the 2.5" receiver on my 2011 Ford F-350. There are to benefits for me: 1) allows me to use the 2" adjustable ball mount on vehicles with only a 2" receiver and 2) it moves the hitch 2 1/16" further back than the DT adjustable ball mount made for 2 1/2" receivers - this gives me the extra clearance I needed to open my tailgate while hooked to my enclosed snowmobile trailer. Adaptor fit nicely into my receiver, but fit was too tight for the DTALBM6600; however, it was very cold (around 10 degrees F) and once I warmed it up on a heater, it fit perfectly. Very happy with this setup. 109315

by:

The adapter is a snug fit. It had slight filing for the medial and lateral pins for the hitch, however they didn't grind down the center bead weld (on top or bottom) which makes it difficult to remove the hitch from the adapter. I had to file down the weld with a Dremel, and now it works great! 104572



- DTADP35
by:

Stainless is a nice feature. Previous one was carbon steel and rusted in place. It would be nice if the key could be matched to the hitch key so there weren't need to have 2 different keys to keep up with and I always seem to grab the wrong one (they look identical) to move the hitch bar down/up. I tried to order the same key for the hitch and the hitch lock, but apparently DT won't allow this as the folks at etrailer have already tried to remedy this problem. I have tried the adapter sleeve in several receivers and it always fits loose. Another issue is it moves the hitch back 3-4 inches farther behind the vehicle. It could be a problem if your electrical connections or tow chains are barely long enough. 103333

This is a nice looking piece. The problem is fit. It fits into the truck receiver just fine, but the Diversi-Tech hitch that I have would not slide into the adapter. I had to pound it on to get it to work. Not sure how I will get it taken apart now that it is wedged in there. The hitch lock pin is about an inch longer than it needs to me so it slides back and forth once installed. I thought if I bought a brand name solution and paid full retail, that it would all fit together. Not happy, but too busy to deal with a return. 89436

Very good product along with great customer service. Thank You 87190



- DTADP35
by:

Love the concept. Very simple. There is a weld bead that goes down the inside. This prevented the sleeve from sliding down smoothly. I placed the item with the side down like the instructions stated and used some hammer persuation to get the adaptor down only to find that the holes for the reciever did not line up. After using a gear to pull the adaptor off and turning it over opposite of what the instructions said to do I had to persuade it down again and the holes lined up. Fits perfectlly into the 21/2 reciever, so I should be good to go if I never need to remove it. 81612

DT 2" to 2 1/2" adapter This is the solution if you have a 2" DT locking ball mount and are trying to use it in the larger 2 1/2" receiver that some of the new Ford Superdutys are equiped with. This was the case recently when I purchased a new vehicle. I didn't want to buy a whole new expensive drop hitch. The towing capacity drops slightly when the adapter is used but the savings are worth it. 4264
