The B&W Tow & Stow adjustable ball mount lets you tow a variety of trailers with different tongue heights. Having a 1-7/8" ball, a 2" ball and a 2-5/16" ball allows for even more versatility, making this the ultimate go-to ball mount if you own multiple trailers.


Easily Adjusts and Stows

B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount Operation

To switch the hitch ball, simply remove the pin holding the balls in place and rotate the entire block that the balls are mounted on until the ball you want to use is on top. Then replace the pin to secure the block in place.


Adjusting the height of the ball is just as easy. Remove the pins holding the ball mount platform in place and slide the platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Once you have found the correct height, reinsert the pins and replace the clips.


When you're not towing, you can flip the ball mount platform around and stow it beneath your hitch so that you won't bang your shins. Just remove the pins to slide the ball platform down along the channel and up the back side so that the hitch balls face towards your vehicle. Then replace the pins.


Built-In Anti-Theft System

The Tow & Stow ball mount features a channel that runs along both sides of the shank. This channel not only allows you to slide the ball mount platform up and down to adjust the ball height, but it also prevents removal of the platform when the ball mount is installed, which will help prevent theft of your trailer.


Single Dimensions

A slot is cut into the adjustment channel near the top of the shank. To remove the ball mount platform from the shank you will need to remove the entire ball mount from your hitch. Then remove the pins that hold the platform in place. Flip the platform around to the stowed position on the rear of the shank, and then slide it up until the center pin lines up with the slot in the shank. Pull the platform out towards the rear of the shank until the pin pops out of the adjustment channel.


When the Tow & Stow is secured in your hitch receiver, you will not be able to remove the ball mount platform. This is because the slot in the shank is positioned in such a way that the collar on your hitch will block the pin on the platform from being able to leave the channel. Even if the pins holding the ball mount platform in place are removed, the platform will still be confined to this channel. So, as long as a hitch lock is used to secure the entire ball mount in your hitch receiver, and a coupler lock is used to prevent your trailer's coupler from being disengaged from the ball, your trailer will be secure.

Great hitch! For the money wish they would include locking pins with it, although if locked to truck the head cant be removed but doesnt mean domebody cant take the pins and leave the head dangling there. Only fault i see

The B&W Tow & Stow hitches are awesome. This is my third one. I'll never go back to the other brands. The ease of switching between ball sizes and the ability to raise and lower the ball without having to change hitches makes life so much easier while on the job. And the quality of the hitch is second to none.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Item was described very well. Shipping was fast as well. The ease of changing the ball for the application i need, and stowing away when not needed make this hitch the only one I'll ever own.


Comments
Its working fantastically. So easy to have a one size fits all hitch. I do keep it lubricated just a bit on the pins. But thats because I keep it on the truck year round.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Just installed on my f250. I love it! I ordered the 7.5 inch drop with the 3 different trailer ball sizes. Super simple. I recommend getting the silencer pad as well as the locking pin. Super fast shipping and super fast responses from the team. They go above and beyond. Will be towing a car trailer with a dodge 2500 on it this weekend so it came at a perfect time. PS: I have a leveled 2016 F250 on 35x11.50’s. The 7.5 inch drop may be a little bit over kill. Any one looking that has the same truck could probably get by with a 4.5 inch drop.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Absolutely wonderful! Super heavy duty! I haul around my heavy duty dump trailer with 15-20k pounds in it and this hitch can withstand anything. I have it turned upward instead of downward to lift up the trailer a little higher to help with sag on my truck from the weight. I also love the ability to stow it however I never use that feature cause I’m always towing.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great product. Extremely well built and looks great. Very easy to put into stow mode and move it back to the positions you want to tow from. The rated capacity of it is great it’ll do everything your truck will do in a bumper pull mode. It is a must for a 19 F-250 with the ride height to get your load level and to make the connection a easier process.


Comments
It’s a great hitch. From height adjustment to having 3 different sized balls that you can tuck and stow out of the way when not in use. Great product with towable weight capacity stamped on it so you now what it can safely tow.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I finally bit the bullet and bought a B&W hitch, 3 ball 7" drop, for my 2021 2500HD. This unit is a tank, not to mention looks pretty awesome as well. Adjustments can be made to any height or ball size needed in minimal time or effort. Now I have everything I need in 1 hitch to accomodate my 3 trailers with very different tongue heights. I was concerned the 7" drop would be dangerously low to curbs but there is plenty of room and no cause for concern This hitch is clearly an investment but over a lifetime of use, should be well worth the money. My only complaint is that it doesn't come with a locking pin

Product received quickly and in perfect condition. I'm very pleased with all of my orders from etrailer.

It has been a year since I purchased my B&W hitch. I use it quite frequently and each time I do Im still pleased with my purchase. If you trailer a lot its worth the money and it looks great. The height adjustability and the 2 and 2 516 balls check all the boxes for the many trailers I have and use weekly.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I really like this hitch. I have four different trailers with different tongue heights and all have different size balls. This hitch took care of all of them. Also, stayed in my receiver all winter and the finish is still really nice! The largest trailer I have towed so far is a 10K car trailer, but if I need gravel I plan to tow a 12K+ dump trailer. I'm sure this hitch will handle it.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


etrailer shocked me with their customer service. The B & W trailer hitch I ordered was out of stock. Within 10 minutes of placing my order at 10:00PM an employee contacted me to make sure I knew it wouldn’t be back in stock until the following week. And also took the time to add links to two different B & W hitches that are similar in case I needed it immediately. Unfortunately that kind of customer service isn’t expected anymore, it really made me feel good. I run several trailers for my business and they earned my business from now on. As for the product itself, exactly as expected. Price was right. And no more swapping between 2” and 2 5/16” hitches. My shines will also appreciate this hitch when walking behind my pickup in the dark!

  • GM Multi-Pro Tailgate Compatible B & W Tow & Stow Ball Mount for 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali
    The original B&W Tow & Stow, like the # BW54FR didn't work well with your tailgate, as the front face of the shank would contact the tailgate which isn't good. The excellent news is that B&W has developed a Tow & Stow model that WILL work with your Multi-Pro tailgate, part # BWTS20067BMP. Right now, the 3 ball model is only available in a 7 inch drop, but if that's sufficient for your needs it would be an excellent choice that won't dent the tailgate on your truck.

    I do have a solution for you but unfortunately the Flash Solid Steel HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5925 doesn't have the ability to store the platform on the underside and this isn't available with just one hitch ball. For a similar option we have the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BW54FR.

  • Is 1-7/8 Hitch Ball Available for the Flash Solid Steel HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount
    I do have some possible solutions for you but unfortunately the Flash Solid Steel HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5925 does not have a 1-7/8" hitch ball attachment. Instead you can use the BulletProof Hitches # HD2510 with the 2-Ball Platform # 358178ball, or the all-in-one B&W Tow and Stow # BW54FR. I personally like the Tow and Stow the most since you have all 3 ball sizes that are very easy to swap out and you can store the ball platform on the backside when not in use....

  • American Made High Capacity Adjustable Ball Mount
    The Fastway # FA49-00-5925 is manufactured overseas in China, but we do have some American made options that might work for you, depending on the exact rise/drop and capacity needed. B&W manufactures their Tow & Stow ballmounts in Kansas. For a 14.5K capacity and the same rise/drop, go for the # BW54FR. If you needed more capacity, the US (Florida) made BulletProof Hitches makes an excellent product, they have a 22K capacity ball mount with a 10 inch drop/rise available as part # HD2510....

These also have a patented design for storing the balls on the other side of the shank so you won't bust your shins! This fits a 2 inch hitch.
