Video Transcript for Diversi-Tech Adapter Sleeve Installation - 2013 Ford F-250

Today on our 2013 Ford F250 Super Duty, we'll be test fitting the stainless steel adapter sleeve with hitch lock for Diversi-Tech 2 inch locking ball mounts, part number DTADP35. This adapter sleeve allows you to use your Diversi-Tech locking ball mount with a 2 inch and a 2 1/2 inch receiver. If you have multiple work vehicles, this will allow you to easily transfer one ball mount from one vehicle to the next vehicle. We'll begin our test fit by sliding the sleeve into the 2 1/2 inch opening of our vehicle. We'll then take the included hitch lock, which we'll slide into the hole closest to the vehicle through the hitch. We'll then lock it on the other side. We'll now use one of Diversi-Tech's 2 inch locking aluminum ball mount, which we will slide into the sleeve and line up the holes of the ball mount into the holes furthest away from the vehicle's sleeve.

We'll then turn the key to bring out the pin holes into the sleeve and it's locked in place. With that, that will complete today's test fit for the stainless steel adapter sleeve, with hitch lock for Diversi-Tech 2 inch locking ball mounts, part number DTADP35 on our 2013 Ford F250. .

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



- DTADP35
by:

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

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:

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



- DTADP35
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

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



- DTADP35
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



- DTADP35
by:

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

by:

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

Ask the Experts about this Fastway Hitch Adapters

  • Is Sleeve Hitch Adapter Normally Difficult to Remove From Truck Hitch
    I wouldn't say it's common for a sleeve style hitch adapter like the # DTADP35 to be difficult to remove from a 2-1/2 hitch...unless it's a Ford hitch as they sometimes have corners that are more radiused which creates issues. On a 2016 GMC Sierra like yours I would not have guessed it would get stuck. Did it slide in easily and then become difficult to remove? If so, that would indicate maybe some dirt and/or corrosion got in there and is preventing it from coming out easily. How long...

  • 2 Inch to 2-1/2 Inch DTADP35 Adapter Measurments
    The part you selected has an overall length of 5-13/16 inches. Other pertinent measurements on the DTADP35 are 2-1/2 inches overall width, 2-1/16 inches inside width, 2-1/8 inches from one end to the center of the hitch pin hole and 1-9/16 inches from the other end to the center of the hitch pin hole.

  • Installation of Fastway Adapter Sleeve with Adjustable Ball Mount into 2-1/2" Trailer Hitch
    To use the Fastway Adapter Sleeve, # DTADP35 with a Self-Locking, Adjustable Ball Mount like the Fastway # DTALBM6600-2S, you will not need to drill any additional holes into your 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch. The holes on the Fastway Adapter Sleeve closest to the vehicle will line up with the existing pin holes on the trailer hitch for the hitch lock to slide through. The holes on the other end of the sleeve will line up with the locking pins of the adjustable ball mount. Once lined up,...

  • Finding the Right Ball Mount for a 2009 Chevy Avalanche to Tow a Trailer Level
    Using a regular ball mount does not reduce the capacity of the trailer hitch. That only happens when using certain adapters and extensions. Since the hitch height and trailer height are the same you would need a ball mount with no rise or drop. But let's make sure you are measuring the same way we do. With the 2009 Chevy Avalanche and trailer on level ground measure from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver opening. Then measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler with...

  • Recommended Adapter Sleeve For Fastway Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount DTALBM7000
    We have just what you are looking for. I recommend the Adapter Sleeve w Hitch Lock for Fastway Locking Ball Mounts, part # DTADP35. This adapter slips over the shank of your Fastway ball mount and then can be used in your 2-1/2 inch receiver on your 2017 Ram. The locking hitch pin included with this is designed for a 2-1/2 inch receiver. If you want the adapter sleeve without the locking hitch pin I recommend part # DTADP25-SS. Either one of these adaptersd will work great with...

  • Using Adapter DTADP35 With a 2-1/2 Inch Hitch
    The adapter, part # DTADP35, is like a sleeve. It slips over the ball mount or drawbar. Then you simply slide the ball mount, with this adapter sleeve around it, into your 2-1/2 inch hitch. You can put a piece of masking tape on the adapter to hold it in place on the ball mount to make sliding it into the hitch a bit easier.

  • Diversi-Tech Adapter Kit for Aluminum Ball Mounts Tow Capacity
    Actually, the 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch Adapter Kit for DTLBM and DTALBM Series Locking Ball mounts, item # DTADP35, does not have a tow capacity. It will not affect the tow rating of your hitch or ballmount. This adapter is specifically designed for use with Diversi-Tech Aluminum Ballmounts and Adjustable Aluminum Ballmounts.

  • Is the Adapter Kit for DTLBM and DTALBM Locking Ball Mounts Just for Aluminum Components
    The Adapter Kit for DTLBM and DTALBM Series Locking Ball mounts, # DTADP35, is designed specifically for trailer hitch ball mounts in the DTLBM and DTALBM series. If you just need a reducer sleeve, I recommend the Titan Reducer Sleeve 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch, # 58102.

    Using a 2-1/2-inch to 2-inch hitch reducer sleeve like # 58102, # BWRHXA2182 or # DTADP35 will allow a 2-inch accessory to fit in your 2-1/2-inch hitch but these Thule and Yakima bike racks you mentioned include their own anti-rattle locks that will not fit the 2-1/2-inch hitch tube.

    The reducer sleeve that comes with Diversi-Tech adjustable ball mount, # DTSTBM6625, cannot be removed from the shank. The fasteners holding it on are there for additional stability and support and the anti-rattle feature also prevents it from coming off. There are some options that might work for you though.

  • Can Diversi-Tech 2-1/2 Inch Ball Mount, Part # DTALBM6825-3S, Be Used with 2-Inch Hitch Receivers?
    The Diversi-Tech Ball Mount, Part # DTALBM6825-3S, is intended for 2-1/2 inch hitch receivers as you noted. The sleeve is press-fit and is not removable. Generally hitch sleeve adapters are produced to allow smaller-size items to be used in larger receivers, for example a 1-1/4 inch hitch mount bike rack in a 2-inch receiver. Whenever any adapter is used the weight bearing capacity of the total system is reduced. Since this adjustable ball mount has a high maximum towing capacity of...

  • Recommendation for an Adjustable Ball Mount on a 2004 Chevy Tahoe Z71 with Factory Tow Package
    I offer adjustable ball mounts for a 2-1/2 hitch, but I would recommend to check the size of the hitch on your 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 with the factory installed tow package. The 2-1/2 inch size hitch would be a Class V hitch that would be rated to tow at least 14,000 lbs. I do not offer a hitch with a 2-1/2 inch opening for a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71. To check the size of your factory hitch you will just need to measure the inside of the opening of the hitch on your vehicle. The...

    On the Diversi-Tech Ball Mount, # DTALBM6600, you would need to use the Diversi-Tech 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch Adapter Kit for DTLBM and DTALBM Series Locking Ball mounts, # DTADP35, on your 2008 Chevy Truck. The adapter kit comes with its own lock, so you would have a key that fits the adapter and a key that fits the ball mount.
