Video Transcript for B and W Pintle Hitch - Pintle Hook - Ball Combo - BWTS10056 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number BWTS10056. This is the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2 5/16 Ball. This is designed to fit a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. The pintle hook and the hitch ball combo is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank simply slides in to the receiver tube of your hitch and the pintle hook set up is going to connect to a lunette ring coupler. If you want to use the 2 5/16 inch hitch ball, you pull the pin and clip to move the top plate into an upright position, reinsert the pin and clip so that the top plate doesn't fall or wiggle around and then you have full access to the hitch ball that simply connects to a standard ball coupler. Now an additional feature of the ball mount is that it actually can be used in a stowed position. This is actually going to swing underneath your hitch to free up some space.

To do that, we need to pull the back 2 pins and make sure our top plate is resting on top of the hitch ball, then we can take our mount, flip it underneath out hitch, line up the holes and reinsert our pins and we secure with our clips on the other side. This is going to give us a nice flatter flush look at the back of our tow vehicle. It moves our mount underneath our hitch which is going to free up some space at the back of our truck. We'll go ahead and move this back out. Now this is fully adjustable, it moves an increments of 1 inch so you can adjust it up and down your shank here. What this does is it's going to allow you to tow trailers of different height and still be able to use the same vehicle. Once you find the desired height, you can reinsert the pins and secure with the clips on the other side. this has dual process chrome plating on the hitch ball that provides excellent rust resistance and the black powder coated shank and platform are corrosion resistant. This does have stainless pins that are going to help create sturdy rust proof connections and it has a durable steel construction with a high yield tubing that offers superior strength. Now a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock is sold separately and you can refer to this product at products Once again, this is designed to fit a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver.

When using the pintle hook, you're going to have a gross towing weight of 16,000 pounds and when using the 2 5/16 inch hitch ball, you're going to have a gross towing weight of10,000 pounds. Now with this in the drop position at it's lowest setting, it's going to have a maximum drop of 8 inches. If you want to use it in it's rise position, you are going to need to flip over the mount and to do that, you'll remove the back 2 pins, rotate this up towards the top of the shank, tilt it and then you can remove it and flip it over as needed. If you need to use it in the rise position, you simply just take the entire mount out of the receiver tube of your hitch, flip it over and reinstall at the same way. Now at it's highest setting in the rise position, it's going to provide a maximum rise of 6 1/2 inches. The other thing I want to point out is that it actually has 2 inch pin hole locations. This is totally there for your convenience, to best suit your towing application or to free up a little bit more distance between your mount and your vehicle when this is in the stowed position. From the center of the first hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar, we have a measurement of 4 inches. From the center of the other hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar, we have a measurement of about 6 inches. From the center of the first hitch pinhole to the center of our 2 5/16 inch hitch ball, we have a measurement of 10 inches and then from the rear hitch pinhole to the center of our ball, we have a measurement of about 12 inches. Once again, this does adjust an increments of 1 inch and that's going to complete today's review of part number BWTS10056.

This is the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2 5/16 inch hitch Ball. .

Product arrived as ordered, quickly and correctly. Should help with our varying height trailers. Thanks 433536


Comments

Thank you for contacting me. The hitch works great for our needs, easy to adjust heights, as we have 1 trailer that sits lower to the ground than all of our other trailers. Its the only hitch we have like that, and we are very happy with it.

Good afternoon I found your products to be very good quality and I look forward to putting them through the paces considering I work at a training center. Your service reps were very product knowledgeable and answered all of questions and didn't push me toward something I don't want or need. I look forward to working with you guys again in the near future. 573277

We've ordered our trailer hitches through etrailer.com on several occasions. The process is simple, the prices are the best we've found and we've never had an issue with our order or the product received. When we placed our last order with etrailer.com, there was a delay in shipping. We were notified by phone as soon as the delay was identified by etrailer and also by phone the day our order was shipped. Even with the delay, we received our trailer hitches within 5 days. I highly recommend etrailer.com! 611032

Review from a similar B and W Tow and Stow in Ball Mounts


The product is fine, convenient, but, I live in Minnesota. I bought this one to replace the same hitch that I bought when I go the last truck. The stainless steel pins had corroded/rusted so tight to the hitch that even putting them into a 40T press could not break them loose. The stainless steel mushroomed, they did not break loose. Keep them lubricated or you will not be able to adjust up or down in a year or two. I replaced them on the new hitch with Grade 8 Hex Screws, and greased them on install. That way, if they get stuck, I can use an impact wrench to break them loose. 573196

During the holidays it's always difficult to find the "right" gift for my husband. Watching the Outdoor tv channel, my husband saw the commercial for this product and stated he was going to have one of these. With ordering a new work truck coming in any day now, I thought this would be a great addition to it. Thanks so much. It's perfect! 460643

These are the best thing since sliced bread! I have now have 4 of these on my trucks and over the last year they have stood up to every heavy load I have latched on to them. I highly recommend them if you have different trailers to pull with different tong heights and ball sizes. 509923

Review from a similar B and W Tow and Stow in Ball Mounts


WOW - This is a heavy duty piece of equipment. I attached it to my truck and it is easy to pivot to the stored position which will make my shins and pant legs happy. My only negative is the 2" ball I primarily will use is on one end so I will have to rotate it around with each use to allow maximum height when stored. It needs to look like the photo, not with the 2" ball rotated to the top, to store. Not a big deal and I am still happy with the purchase. 575183

Review from a similar B and W Tow and Stow in Ball Mounts


Bought this for my 2008 F350 SRW diesel. All I could say after taking this hitch out of the box is “Holy Crap” . I’m blown away over the quality of this hitch. I never thought i’d say this about a hitch, but It really is a thing of beauty. Nice to buy a product engineered and built in the US. Just received it yesterday so I didn’t get a chance to use it yet, but appears to be worth every penny. Also love the fact that it stows out of the way when not in use- no more busted ankles. I can also retire my collection of different drop/ball hitch combos, all of which vary based on what I’m towing. This one replaces them all and won’t leave my receiver. If you’re trying to decide on a hitch, just spend the money and buy this- you won’t be disappointed and it looks like it will last a lifetime. 496383

After doing tons of research I decided to purchase a B&W hitch for my 2015 GMC 2500HD. Needless to say it was one of the best purchases I've ever made. Extremely well built unit. Much heavier than I anticipated it to be. Should last me many years. Thank you for a great AMERICAN built product. 319692

More importantly, I am very impressed with the polite, prompt, efficient customer service. I haven't experienced this type service in a very long time. I will use these folks again. After all anyone can distribute product, it is the customer service that makes the difference. 346489

Received this well within a reasonable time . I think it wasn’t described very well . It’s better than described . Extremely well built and very easy to use . Does everything the way it’s meant to be . Eliminates the need for several ball mounts as all are built into one . And the ability to change heights also makes it well worth the money spent . I can now pull any of my trailers without having to search for the correct ball and mount . Wish I had purchased this years ago if it had been available . GREAT PRODUCT !!!!!!!!! 568653

Looked at many adjustable hitches, came down to what made sense, not price. I had seen two on other trucks, looked custom made, not an add on, good vibes. Shopped suppliers, as usual, went back to “etrailer”, of course. Good purchase through a reputable company! Not surprised when it arrived. Use for three different bumper pull trailer types. 569913

Review from a similar B and W Tow and Stow in Ball Mounts


Just received the B&W Tow & Stow 2 Ball Mount from etrailer.com. Bought it for it's ability to not only change ball sizes easily but to also configure it in the stow position while still mounted to the truck. This will allow me to continue parking my truck in the limited size garage without having to remove the ball mount. Additional note: etrailer was great in getting the order out the door and to our house in short order without shipping cost - a great benefit from other sites/companies. 276275

I was very impressed with the amount of engineering that went into this product!! Overall very well built. Recommend a hitch lock to go along with the purchase. What I like most is eliminating the need to have at least 3 extra hitches (possibly more depending on the drop/rise that maybe needed). If you have multiple trailers or will be hooking up to multiple trailers this is the hitch for you. 284108

  • Using Silencer Pad # BWTS35020 for Tow and Stow with Drop Down Pintle on 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • I spoke with my contact at B&W and since the Silencer Pad, # BWTS35020, is a universal product, it will fit differently on each vehicle and some may need to use greater force in order to get the hitch pin holes on the ball mount to line up with those on the hitch. Please keep in mind that the silencer pad installs between the face of the hitch on your 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe and the back of the Tow & Stow. No part of the silencer should be pushed into the hitch receiver opening. I have...

B&W designed this adjustable pintle/ball combo hitch to offer the flexibility to tow as both a pintle hook/lunette ring and as a hitch ball, but not to serve as a basis for a weight distribution system.

  • The Clevis Adapter part # BWTS35100B that you referenced can be installed on the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10050B that you referenced. However, this adapter is not designed for use with a pintle setup.

  • Can Pintle of B&W Tow and Stow # BWTS10056 Be Moved Down to Lock Coupler Onto Trailer Ball
  • Due to the thickness of the top of the coupler, you wouldn't be able to lower the pintle all the way when used on a regular coupler. You'd be better off using a coupler lock to prevent the coupler from being unhooked. The best lock for you will depend on the design of your coupler. If you have a latch style, a lock like the Bulldog # BD580403 would be an excellent choice, and could be used while towing.

I called my contact at B&W and they told me the shank and mount included with the BWTS10056 has a much higher capacity than the BWTS10048B, and they do not recommend using either part with the other system. The 2-5/16 inch ball on the BWTS10048B is the highest rated part of the system but it is not recommended they be used...

  • Longest Available Pintle Hook Combo With 2-5/16 Inch Trailer Ball
  • The Curt # C48006 pintle hook combo measures 11-3/4 inches from the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. The longest pintle hook combo we offer would be the B&W # BWTS10056 that offers a 12 inch distance between the hitch pin hole and the center of the hole where the 2-5/16 inch trailer ball mounts. The hook has a 16,000 lb capacity, but you'd be limited to the 10,000 lb weight capacity of the trailer ball. I'm sorry to say that we don't offer a 14 inch length pintle hook...

  • Why Does B&W Not Include More Pins For Their Pintle/Ball Combo?
  • On the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2" Hitches - 10,000 lbs/16,000 lbs # BWTS10056, the 4 holes in the unit on the adjustable face give you the most secure options when adjusting. They could include 5 pins and give you that added security, but the 2 pins on the shank and one on the pintle hook portion is enough for the weight capacity and function of the ball mount/pintle. You can get additional pins if you like. They are Replacement Stainless Steel Pin and Clip...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Ball for 18 Foot Eager Beaver Trailer
  • For your 1990 18 foot Eager Beaver trailer, I recommend the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball like # 19286. Many of those trailers use a lunette ring, so I recommend using a combination ball mount like the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2" Hitches # BWTS10056 to give you that strength and function.

  • 2 Inch Hitch Ball for the B&W Tow and Stow Pintle Hitch Ball Mount
  • You can get a 2 inch ball for the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hitch, part # BWTS10056 as part # BWTS10051. This is actually a direct replacement for the 2 inch standard version of your hitch, so your shank diameter and lengths will match up very well. The greaseless balls are all designed (At present) for a single hitch that isn't compatible with your current system, so you'd need to completely replace your existing hitch to swap to greaseless. As far as their "Gimmickness" its just a different...

  • Solution for Towing Trailer Level that is 6 Inches Higher Than Tow Vehicle
  • I do have a solution for you, however high-low adapters like the Roadmaster # RM-048-6 that you referenced are only designed for flat towing a vehicle. They are not suitable for towing a camper/trailer. To get the rise you need to tow your trailer level, you will instead want to look at a ball mount with around a 6 inch rise. I recommend taking a look at the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 2793. This ball mount is compatible with 2 inch hitch receivers, features a 6-3/4 inch rise (or an 8 inch...

  • Recommended Hitch Reciever For 1998 Ford E450 Cutaway Cab and Chassis
  • Your 1998 Ford E450 Cutaway Cab and Chassis is a unique fit. There isn't a custom hitch that is a specific fit for that vehicle. I reached out to my contact at Cequent and we determined a couple options that I recommend to choose from. The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Receiver - Weld On - Class V - 2", # 41990-07, has 7 inch tall brackets that need to be welded to the frame. This hitch has a 44 inch square tube that is 3 inches deep. It has a maximum gross trailer...

  • Towing of B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook Ball Mount # BWTS10056
  • It's really hard to say what type of towing capacity reduction you'd have with the lift kit you installed. You'd want to check with the manufacturer of the kit to get the best answer for that. The B and W Tow and Stow ball mount part # BWTS10056 that you referenced has a 16,000 lb capacity with it's 2-5/16 inch ball or 10,000 lb with the 2 inch ball.

  • Will the Pintle Hook/Hitch Ball Combo Fit on a Standard B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount
  • I am glad to hear how much you love your B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS10049B. I would be happy to get you a similar pintle hook and hitch ball combo as well but unfortunately it is not as easy as just using an adapter on the one you have now. The reason that this cannot be done is that the shank on the ball mount you have now is different than the one on the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball part # BWTS10056, therefore the pintle hook/hitch ball position of this ball...
