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.

Video Transcript for B and W Tow and Stow 2-Ball Mount Review

How's it going everybody Clayton here at etrailer.com. Today we're going to be checking out the BMW tow and stow adjustable ball mount. Now we do have a wide variety of options here at etrailer of the BMW adjustable ball mount. Today we're going to be taking a look at the Chrome finish but you can also find all of these in black as well. We're going to be looking at the three inch drop today but you can find other drops or rises here at etrailer as well. And then we are looking at the two ball today but you can also find these all in three ball as well.

Now, one of the huge benefits to using an adjustable ball mount like this one is we can fine tune this to whatever we're towing. A lot of times when we're looking for an adjustable ball mount, that's because we're pulling multiple trailers and especially one that has different ball sizes as well. So this is really going to allow us to use any trailer that we might have, and it's all going to be right here. We're not gonna have to switch out ball mounts or anything like that. Now you do see it in the stow mode now.

This is going to be really nice cause we don't have anything sticking out of the back. So we're not going to worry about running into it or somebody else running into it. But whenever we're ready to use it we're going to remove our clips. Just pull these pins out. The whole assembly will drop down, swing around.

Then you can set it at your desired height for whichever trailer you're towing. You always want to make sure to reinstall these clips. Then to turn the ball we're going to remove our pin and clip here. Let's say we're going to use a two inch ball. We'll turn that upwards, and then reinstall that pin and clip.

Now we're ready to hook up to our trailer and hit the road. The ball mount we're using today is going to be for two inch hitch receivers, but no need to worry. If you have a two and a half or three inch you can find all these options here at etrailer as well for those hitches. Now, honestly, when it comes to BMW they are one of my favorite brands. Whenever it comes to ball mounts, fifth wheels, and goosenecks. They overbuild everything and they look really nice in the process. This is definitely a ball mount that you're going to get complimented on. It looks really nice on the back of our vehicle and it's very functional as well. And one question you might be asking yourself when it comes to a ball mount is, yeah, it looks great, but how much can it pull This ball mount is going to be rated for 10,000 pounds of towing capacity and 1000 pounds of tongue weight. Now you do want to keep in mind, whichever ball you're using is going to have a different rating. So our two inch ball is going to have a 7,500 pound capacity and our two and five sixteenths is going to have a 10,000 pound capacity. So that's going to be more than enough to tow any trailer we might use, or be doing with this truck but you do want to keep in mind you need to check with your owner's manual for your vehicle and make sure it can tow with those capacities and never exceed the amount rated by the ball or your vehicle. Something I highly recommend picking up is going to be a locking pin and clip. This is going to help protect our investment. We don't want anybody coming up here and taking this off the back of our vehicle. So having that locking pin and clip is going to give you the peace of mind to know that it's secured and your investment's protected. You can find locking hitch pins here at etrailer. And when it comes to adjusting our ball mount this one really sells itself. It's going to be easy use. Let's say we get to the job site with our utility trailer. We dropped that off and now we need to pickup a dump trailer. All we're going to do is remove our pins. Slide that up, to down to the desired height. Re-install our pins and clips. Flip that ball over and hit the road. Now, this is going to be super easy to use. Really, I honestly like it. You don't need any tools or anything like that to switch things around, and everything stays on the ball mount. It's not like we're going to have to grab another one or hope that we leave it in the truck or anything like that. It's all right here and ready to go. Then once we're done, we can flip the ball back this way. Again, reinstall those pins and clips. You removed that last one, flip it underneath, put that pin and clip back in, and we're good to go. All in all, this really is one of my favorite ball mounts on the market. I would definitely recommend to anybody I know or even that I don't know. It's definitely something that I like to use. It makes life a lot easier. That's going to do it for our look at the BMW tow and stow adjustable ball mount..

This is by far the best hitch if have ever had. Sturdy design with no give or wiggle when accelerating and breaking when pulling a heavy load. Easily tucks under when not in use. Great overall design. etrailer is a fantastic company and has outstanding customer service. I will for sure be a repeat customer.




by:

Love this hitch. It’s super easy to switch and since I have trailers with different size balls this is super handy as I don’t have to carry around extra hitches. Plus the chrome looks great on my truck, a nice added shine

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


Sent the wrong hitch in a box that was obviously opened previously. I paid for newz NOT an open box. Hitch is filthy, and is for a 3" receiver, NOT a 2 1/2". Will have to cancel my trip this weekend as a result. Thanks for nothing.


Comments
Thanks for reaching out. I have sent your information along to our customer service team.

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


I like that it stows under the truck and i'm not banging my leg and getting grease on myself. The only draw back was i wanted to use my anti slap bracket and it would not fit due to the insert butts up to the hitch receiver. I'm not experiencing any slapping when taking off or stopping at this time.I use this for my boat and a utility trailer and i don't have to change hitch insert which is really nice, one less thing to do.

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


Great price and fast shipping. However the hitch is very loose in the receiver. I’ve never had a hitch wobble like this one does. I guess I’ll have to order something to correct that.


Comments
It sounds like your ball mount might be a bit too small. If you measure the inside to inside of the hitch receiver, we can confirm the exact size you need. We do have part # BLU79XR, that would fit a 2.5 inch hitch, but I would like to double check and make sure that this ball mount will actually fit your application.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 03/29/2022
I have a 2.5 receiver on my 2015 F350 Super Duty. I do have the 2.5 to 2 adaptor to accept the 2 hitch, but I suspect the adaptor only amplifies the sloppy fit. I tried my old BW hitch with has a shorter and its just as loose, but I never noticed it as much because the is much shorter.
-- comment by: Steve V - 04/06/2022
I have noticed in your picture that you actually have the 3 inch OEM hitch with the adapter sleeves that are provided when purchasing larger trucks. We do have some safe application options for you. We have a 3 inch ball mount with a 7 inch and 7.5 inch rise, part # BWTS30040B

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


Should have bought years ago. Works amazing, and super easy to change heights and ball sizes. I have a ram 3500 with 35” tires, and bought the 7” drop I don’t think I would ever need to 7 inch drop but for the price difference I’m glad I bought it.




by:

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


hitch worked well for my small utility trailer behind my new full size truck.
Only possible down side is the ball I'm not using does sit somewhat low and could in certain circumstances hit a kerb or other bump. Haven't had that issue and think it's unlikely, but it is possible. Note I need the ball mounted on the lowest seting, 7" drop to work with this trailer on this truck




by:

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


Would probably rate higher but I have not needed to use either tow package yet. Seems good, looks great, pretty straight forward to install.




by:

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


New buy but they seem to be well built. I like that the lock screws into the pin as opposed to the assembly that latches on (I’ve seen video where those can be forced off).


Comments
Highly recommended. I bought locking pins so that i can keep it mounted 247. Would buy this product again. Very sturdy, well worth it.

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


First and foremost etrailer is awesome. Secondly they should pay me for the information and pictures I'm going to include. The B&W hitch # TS10065BMP (BW29FR) works with the Multi Pro tailgate on the GMC and Chevy 1500 pickups. I was ready to return it after talking to Bailey because it didn't do what I wanted. I like to have my hitch in tow position to ward off all of the idiots that want to rear end you. This wards off the majority with a little intimidation. The hitch needs to be pushed over the receiver into the recess to work! Then in the lowest position rotate the balls and nirvana! See Photos! Balls out!!

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


You guys are awesome, informed me on every step of the process from receiving the order to delivery. This hitch works great with the ford Tremor.


Comments
good solid hitch, the height adjustment is great for this truck.

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


Great. I switch from utility trailer to boat trailer to cargo hauler with just a quick rotate. If you work with all these ball sizes regularly, it’s fabulous. It is expensive though, so if I only rarely switched trailers, I’d just get 2 standard hitches. After a year, I do notice some squeal on turns, so some maintenance is probably in order.

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


After doing some research and trying to figure out what style and brand of ball mount to get…..I settled on this B&W product. Its nice to have the ability to adjust your ball mount for different trailers just in case you need to. Being a machinist, I found that this was very well made……no burrs anywhere, clean welds, very nice powder coat finish and packed in heavy duty cardboard to prevent hopefully no issues with shipping.




by:

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


Really well made. All parts are machined. The fit and finish is very nice. It easily transforms from the usable position to a tucked away position. It's more than what I though I purchased




by:

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


Excellent quality. A great idea with the adjustability .Tucks under the bumper and it can be left on. Much better than having 2 or 3 different hitches




by:

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


Awesome product & service. We have B & W adjustable hitches installed on all of our trucks. As we tow various trailers with various trucks these hitches are the ticket, best ever made & excellent quality.
Awesome job on etrailers service, wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you

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


Seems to be holding up well. Just remember it's only a 10k ball mount. I originally ordered it for my front hitch but started using it on my rear hitch because it's very convenient to change ball size compared to the aluminum scaled hitch that I was using. Then I bought a 15,400 dump trailer and neither mount is rated for that amount of weight. I would recommend this mount.




by:

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


Great hitch. I bought the 3 ball with 8" drop hitch. My utility trailer needs it almost all the way down. My boat trailer needs it almost all the way up on my Chevy 2500HD. The only time I have removed it was to install a Pintle hitch one day to haul a trailer for a tractor. Tip: Use silicone spray on the adjustable pins. Use of lithium grease fouls them up so it's difficult to remove and reinstall them (collects dirt, dust). Also lubricate your hitch lock monthly, or you won't be able to open it if you ever want to remove the hitch.


Comments
After one tear the hitch is still like new. Regular cleaning and light litigation of the pins is required. Since I leave the hitch on my truck all the time I often forget to lubricate the hitch pin locked often as I should. Great hitch. Id buy it again. If youre considering buying one, do it. You wont regret it.

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


I pull different trailers during the weeks and I am constantly changing heights and balls size. This hitch has been perfect. It is everything I expect a hitch to be. We bought one for each of our trucks. We replaced the pin clips with ones clips that have the rubber pull tab. They should come standard with this hitch. We are very pleased with the quality of this product.




by:

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


This hitch is high quality and continues to perform flawlessly. I live the pins with silicone lube to keep the parts rust free. The powder coating has held up great and so have the 2” and 2 5/16” balls. This will be my go to hitch from now on.

The best hitch hands down for the GM 1500’s with the multi tailgate!

There are chrome plated version of this ball mount available but the maximum drop for this is 7" using part # BWTS10040C. The maximum drop ball mount we have in a chrome finish is going to be 8".

  • Adjustable Dual Ball Mount that Can have Ball Platform Reversed for Storage Position
    We have ball mounts that do allow the platform to reverse so that it's out of the way and you'd be less likely to bang your shin on it, but the Fastway E Series ball mounts like the # FA42-00-2600 have a machined stop on the shank that prevents this. Instead, you would want to use the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount part # BWTS10040C which is a very similar ball mount setup that can have the platform reversed like you are wanting.
