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.

Video Transcript for B and W Tow and Stow 3-Ball Mount Review

Hi there heavy hollers. Today we're gonna be taking a look at B&W's Tow & Stow 3-Ball receiver hitch. This ball mount comes with three different sized balls, and it's designed to fit in 2.5 inch hitches. We can see here in the end, we've got our two inch ball here, currently in the rise, 'cause our boat trailer here uses a two inch hitch, but we've also got a 1 7/8, and a 2 5/16 available. Another thing that's nice about this ball mount, is that it is adjustable. We've got seven inches of drop in its current position.

And if we we're to take it out and flip it over to where this portion was going upward, that would be the rise position, And we'd get about 7.5 inches in the rise position. We've got plenty of adjustment holes here, and each hole, the distance between those, is gonna give us about 1 3/8 of an inch of adjustment. When you're ready to adjust the height, it's pretty easy. We simply pull out the clips that hold our pins in place. And since this is a B&W, you'll appreciate how easy the pins just slide in and out.

The machining on these is just fantastic. So you can see here, also that, when we go to adjust it, that this is completely secured to our drop here. So, nobody can come along and grab our pins, and walk away with our ball. It's gonna stay secure on here. So, we can go ahead and slide it up to the position and that's gonna work best for us.

So, it's looks like, we're gonna be at about this position here. So, we'll just slide our pins back through, line up our holes, and then resecure the pins. So, now that we know the right height, we are gonna select the ball size that's appropriate for our setup. To do that, you'll wanna pull the pin for the ball, and you can see here that it now rotates. So, you can choose the most appropriate one for your trailer, whatever size your coupler is.

The smallest one on here is the 1 7/8. With this one, we're gonna have a maximum of a 3,500 pound towing capacity. The two inch is gonna give us a maximum of 7,500 pounds, and with our 2 5/16, we're gonna have a 14,500 pounds of towing capacity available to us. Regardless of which position you're using, this ball mount does have a 1,450 pound towing weight rating on it as well. And, that should be more than enough for anything you're gonna be hooking up to this thing. One of the things I'll point out, is that we've got two holes here for securing our ball. If you're gonna use the two, or the 2 5/16, you'll use the rear most hole to secure it in that position. If you're gonna use it in the 1 7/8, or in the storage position, you would use the forward most hole. So we're gonna set ours to the two inch, because that's what our trailer is here, and then resecure that pin. And having three different ball sizes, is going to maximize the versatility of what your truck can bring with you. Two inch balls are great for a lot of your boat trailers, and maybe your smaller car haulers. A lot of those have two inch hitches on them, so we've got a two inch available. We can bring all these things along with us. Your larger bumper pull campers and enclosed trailers, often have 2 5/16 inch balls, which we've got that available, again, with that 14,500 pound capacity, which should be more than enough than any of these campers have. Oftentimes these things usually top out about 10,000 pounds. So, you usually have plenty of leeway with that 2 5/16 ball. And, maybe it won't come up as often, but you've got a 1 7/8 inch ball in there as well. So, if you're doing a little bit of work around the house, you've got a small utility trailer that you'd like to hook up to just get some work done, you can do that. Or, maybe you've got a jet ski trailer or a kayak trailer. Something like that often has a 1 7/8 inch ball, 'cause it doesn't really have a lot of weight capacity to it. We're now over here, on our big enclosed camper. This is gonna show it off the best, as it's the biggest weight we've got here. It's a 2 5/16 ball. So, we've gone ahead and backed up. We did hook up our electrical so we can operate the jack, and we're just lowering our trailer onto it now. Once you've got it loaded on there, it's not uncommon for you to have to pull forward a little bit in order to get it latched. And, then you wanna finish hooking up the rest of your components, which includes your safety chains. Make sure you cross those to create a cradle underneath. So, in the event of a catastrophic disconnect, it'll catch your components, and keep from digging into the pavement. And, if you have brakes on your trailer, make sure you hook up that breakaway switch cable as well. The balls are double-chrome plated, to protect against rust and corrosion. And you can see, we put a little bit of grease on the ball that we use too, to help prevent any metal to metal contact, and extend the life of our ball. The body of it is constructed of steel, and can come in either a black powder coat finish, or chrome like we're showing off today. Now, we've talked about a lot, with our tri-ball features on this, but they don't call it the tow and stow for nothing. With this unit, we can actually store it, and reduce the distance that it sticks off the back of our truck here. So, to do that, we're gonna remove the pin and clip, and we're gonna put it in the 1 7/8 position. That's actually our storage position. We'll then resecure that. We'll pull both the pin and clips then, for our drop and rise position. And, you can see it'll drop all the way down. And once it drops all the way down, our ball actually will roll underneath. We can lift it back up as high as it'll go, and then reinsert our pins, and then store it right back into this position. And this is nice, because we've now reduced the distance that was sticking off the back here, by almost about six inches. It's quite a bit that sticks off the back. And, what this can do, is it can make the difference between being able to store your vehicle in the garage and shut the door. That sticking off at the back there, might've been just that enough that prevented that door from shutting. And also, if you have a slightly oversized garage, mine's a little bit deeper, and if I wanna park my truck in there, and I've got a ball on the back, it will fit, but I can't get around the truck. This will give me the distance that I need to be able to walk around and still utilize my garage when the truck's inside. And I like it. One of my favorite parts, is when you're doing stuff in the garage, or out working, you're usually in a hurry, you're running by, and all of a sudden you've hit your shin on that ball. And boy does that hurt. You're saying a lot of things you shouldn't say. Putting it like this makes it much closer to the truck, and it really minimizes the odds of you accidentally hitting it. I also kind of like the chrome finish. It makes it a little bit easier to see. So, even when it's darker outside, you're walking, maybe just using a flashlight or just a small light, it's gonna reflect really well, making this obvious that it's there. And one final feature that we really haven't talked about, is the hitch pin mounting holes located on our receiver hitch here. We've got two that are a little bit over an inch apart from one another. So, you can adjust as necessary to ensure you've got the appropriate distance for the truck and trailer that you're using in combination together. And that completes our look at B&W's Tow & Stow 3-Ball receiver hitch..

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
B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch -7-1/2" Drop, 7" Rise - 21K - Black
$379.00
. This will prevent you from needing to use adapter sleeves at all. We also offer a hitch receiver immobilizer for 3 inch hitches, part # BLU85QR
Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer for 3" Hitches
$59.81
, as well.

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


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


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.

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

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.

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


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


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.

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

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

Awesome job on etrailers service, wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you

  • Will the B&W Chrome Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount Rust
    I took a look at the almost hundred reviews we have for the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS10047C and there was not a single mention of rust so you should not have any issues. The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount has what is described as a dual-process chrome finish which is much more more durable than your standard chrome plating.

    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10047C that you referenced is actually perfect for your application! The drop and rise measurements mentioned are for the max adjustments. Since there are adjustment holes that go all the way to the top of the shank you will be able to achieve the correct 3/4" rise for your application. It might not be able to get an exact 3/4" rise but it will be close enough for you to tow level. I do recommend adding the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # BX8858 to deter...
