An illustration shows the eleven inch clearance level needed between the ground and B and W Tow and Stow hitch.

Note: To avoid the Tow & Stow hitting steep driveways or curbs, we recommend at least 11" of clearance between the ground and the lowest point of the drop hitch, as seen above.


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 Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - BWTS10049C Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to take a look at the B&W chrome tow and stow three ball mount for a 2 inch hitch. It has a 7 inch drop or a 7 and a half inch rise and a 10,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this ball mount with these built in will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion right here, this'll slide into a 2 inch hitch receiver opening, and then the hitch ball is what'll provide the connection point for your trailer coupler.If you notice on this ball mount, it has three different-sized hitch balls. It has the 1 and 7/8ths inch, the 2 inch, and the 2 and 5/16ths diameter, so it'll let you tow trailers with different coupler sizes, and it's very easy to switch the ball to whatever one you need. Right now, it's for the 1 and 7/8ths inch, so if you just pop off the clip, pull out the pin, that'll let you rotate this.

And then, you can put it back in if you need the 2 inch or if you need the 2 and 5/16ths.Once you get whatever ball you need, all you have to do then is just go ahead and put your pin back through. Put your clip back in there, and then you're all ready to go. So it makes switching a ball very easy to do. Now, if you also notice, it has the adjustable height here that'll let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. Basically, you can just slide this ball platform out, up or down the shank, secure it in place with the included pins and clips at whatever height you need it for.These holes are at 1 inch on center to center, so it gives you incremental height adjustment of 1 inch.

Maximum drop . it's in the maximum drop position right now. It's measured from the top of the shank here to top of the ball platform as 7 inches. If you want maximum rise, you would put it in this way and again measure top of the shank, right here. And that's 7 and a half inches.

And again, just to show you how you would adjust the height, there's these two pins and clips. Pull out the clips. Pull out both pins, and just like that, that'll let you put it in whatever position you need to get those levels possible when you're towing.Also, the nice feature . one of the main features on this is the stowable design. This'll let you store the ball and mounting platform underneath your vehicle, basically the same way.

You just remove those pins and clips that holds the ball platform in place. All you have to do is let it go all the way down, flip it all the way over just like that. And then, you can put it in the position you need, put your pins and clips in. There's your pins. You put your clips in there, and then it'll be stowed out of the way. You'll see, this would be . at the very back, all you'll have showing is that. You won't have this sticking out that you could run into, so it stows in an out of the way position.And then, when you're ready to use it, take your pins and clips off, and again, just rotate it just like this, back into the usable position, and then put it at whatever height you need. Another nice thing is if you notice, there's a slot right here. There's the same one over here. This slot in the shank will ensure that your ball mount platform can't be removed from the tow and stow when it's installed in the hitch, so you can take this ball platform off by turning it around, and it will slide off of these slots right here. But when this is installed in your hitch, it won't allow you to do that. So it's actually a theft deterrent just by when it's installed in there.Now, it does come, if you notice . when you do install this in your hitch, there's two hitch pin . or hitch holes, pinholes here. It does require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock. We do sell those separately. It's a standard 5/8ths inch diameter pin. So if you do lock this . and you notice there's two holes, so you just pick the correct hitch pin hole that's for your application. But if you do put a lock through here, that way, when it's locked in there, nobody can get to removing that ball platform, because they have to pull that out to remove it. So if it's locked in, they can't do that.And there's no additional locks necessary to prevent the platform and the balls from being removed, because it'll be locked in by that. This is a durable steel construction, with the T yield tubing. Offers superior strength. If you notice the finish on it, it's a very nice dual process chrome plating on the shank and the balls. It provides nice, excellent rust resistance. The pins themselves are stainless steel pins. Put the clips back in there. Looks like that.Now, this part is made in the USA, and again, a few specs on it. The application, again, is for 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. The gross towing weight and tongue weight capacities, when used with the 1 and 7/8ths inch ball, 3,500 pounds gross towing weight capacity, 350 pounds tongue weight. When used with the 2 inch ball, right over here if you turn it around, 7,500 pound gross towing weight capacity, 750 pound tongue weight. And when used with the largest, the 2 and 5/16ths diameter ball, we'll get you your maximum 10,000 pound gross towing weight or 1,000 tongue weight.The last few measurements I want to give you is the distance from these hitch pin holes to the center of the hitch ball. So from the closest hole to the center of the hitch ball is going to be 9 and a quarter inches. From the hole furthest from the ball, center to center, is right at 10 and 3/8ths inches. But that should do it for the review on the B&W chrome tow and stow three ball mount for a 2 inch hitch, 7 inch drop, 7 and a half inch rise, and a 10,000 pound weight capacity.

Its perfect for my truck. I had the 9" drop and it hung to far down. Not only is the 7" drop perfect for me, its chrome and looks better on my truck. Fast delivery.
I highly recommend etrailer for all your towing needs.



by:

I spent a lot of time online looking for a nice looking but durable ball hitch for my F150. After seeing this one I spoke with your customer service to get the correct drop for my truck since it has a 6" lift and 35" tires. I was a machinist for 35 years and know quality work when I see it. This product exceeded my expectations as did the customer service.



by:

Recently did some work on my son's truck which included chrome wheels. This hitch looks great on his truck.



by:

It has and continues to be a great product. I use it every week and have had no issues. I hvae had no more shin scraps since installing this hitch on my truck. Shout out to B&W made in the USA and is shows



by:

Receiver and adjustable drop down size combination works really well and looks clean even after a year. Flipping it around to the back side when not in use.. is a game changer from hitting your legs being when not in use. Since this is not a cheap unit I bought the locks to prevent it from being stolen but they are not as good as some of the competition lock sets when it comes to locking and unlocking them.



by:

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.



by:

It was easy to install and looks great. It is a really sturdy hitch. It weighs just over 30 lbs. The anti-theft security feature that is built in works perfect. It will be nearly impossible for anyone to walk away with it.



by:

Great quality and design. Made very well with top quality material and great chrome finish. I am very happy with this hitch and hoping to have many years of use. Prompt delivery and good customer service too.

Received my new hitch today and I've already installed it and used it. It arrived on time, looks great and I'm very pleased with it. I'm a 74 year old man who has never written a review. But, I felt compelled to write this one because of your outstanding quality product and service. Thank you.

I purchased this hitch for my 2024 GMC Sierra 3500 which has the multiple tailgate. The hitch was in the stow position but still damaged my tailgate when I had the tailgate fully down and used the step feature. it bent the metal and scratched the paint. So please be aware this hitch is not recommended for the 2024 GMC sierra 3500 with multiple tailgate.



by:

I love this hitch. With a locking pin, it stays on my truck all the time. Here’s why:

Height adjustment. This truck was tall when I bought it, so I needed the drop for my trailers to ride level.

3 balls. We have 3 trailers of different sizes and weights, so all 3 balls get used.

And a step! Even when not towing, I use this step to access the bed all the time.

Fits my 3” receiver without an adapter.

Spend the money and you will have no regrets down the road.



by:

Was shipped on time.B&W hitch was fine just missing one pin clip.Box had several holes where pin clip could have fallen out. Looks like it had a rough trip.

I purchased the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 3" Drop, 3-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black and am extremely happy with it. It was $100 cheaper than anywhere else I shopped. Was delivered quickly and was an easy install. I used it to haul a trailer full of wood that I cut up and it got the job done! It is very heavy duty and takes the place of multiple single hitches. It’s nice to have all the options in one.

Multipro tail gate hit

by:

Fits perfect on my 2024 GMC1500 AT4. At the lowest setting and showed it fully clears the multi Pro tailgate when lowered. The receiver hitch has about 10” of clearance from the ground, in rocky off road situations I would want to remove it if not towing.

  • Will a 5 Inch Drop B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount Work on a Truck with 6 Inch Lift
    In order to find out how much drop you will need to have in a ball mount, you will want to measure the distance from the ground to the top, inside edge of your receiver tube and then subtract the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler while level. That said, the 5" drop B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS10048C most likely won't have enough for you. The 7" B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS10049C would be a more realistic option and this is also the most...
