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.

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 Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Nice hitch, a little sloppy tolerances. Definitely pinch points when adjusting the ball height and stowing. Count your fingers before and after. The fastway hitch locks will work on the receiver, but not long enough to replace the pins on the ball adjustment. 596111

Ask the Experts about this B and W Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Can B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook Attachment Be Used on 2-Ball Tow & Stow Ball Mount
    This is a really good question. I reached out to my contact at B&W to see if it was possible to use the pintle hook attachment from the B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS10056 with your 2-Ball Tow & Stow like # BWTS10037B and he said unfortunately it cannot be done. He said the pin blocks on the pintle version are reinforced differently so the same component cannot be used with both shanks. They just aren't physically compatible. The only way to have the pintle version Tow & Stow is to obtain the...

  • Can B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook/Hitch Ball # BWTS10056 Be Used as Weight Distribution Hitch
    The shank portion of the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook/Hitch Ball # BWTS10056 cannot be used as a component of a weight distribution system. 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. My contact at B&W confirmed. We do offer a complete range of weight distribution/sway control hitch systems from Blue Ox and other manufacturers. The...

  • 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...

  • Ball Mount with Pintle Attachment, 2 Inch Ball, and 2-5/16 Inch Ball
    I have a great solution for you. Take a look at the Convert-A-Ball Pintle Hook Combo with 3 Stainless Steel Balls # PH1. It comes with a pintle attachment and all 3 common ball sizes. The only other part needed is a shank such as # AMPC3, # AMPC2, or # AMPC1; all of which are cushioned.

  • B&W Tow and Stow Pintle Hook Adjustable Ball Mount Hitch Ball Installation
    The B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2" Hitches - 10,000 lbs/16,000 lbs # BWTS10056 uses a 1-13/16 inch socket and needs to be torqued to 450 ft lbs according to the manufacturer. The good news is the hitch ball comes assembled and already torqued to that specification.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Can Shank Of B & W Pintle Hook System Be Used With 3-Ball Mount Of B & W System
    It sounds like you want to be able to use the pintle hook mount of the # BWTS10056 with the 3-ball mount that is included with the Tow & Stow, like part # BWTS10048B. 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Can You Add a Pintle Hook To the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Hitches
    I do have options for you but there is not a pintle hook adapter for the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS20048B so the only way to obtain a pintle hook with the Tow & Stow feature is to purchase the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball part # BWTS10056 separately and then use the B&W Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve part # BWRHXA2182 with this. That said, if you purchase the Curt Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball part # C45908 and the Replacement 2" and 2-5/16" Dual-Sided Ball...

  • Can Clevis Adapter For B&W Tow & Stow Be Used Like Pintle Hook
    The shank of the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount, part # BWTS10049B can be used with the Clevis Adapter, part # BWTS35100B you said you have and can also work with the pintle hook that is included with part # BWTS10056. The clevis adapter BWTS35100B cannot be modified to be used like the pintle hook since it cannot be used with a trailer hitch ball. I confirmed this with my contact at B&W.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

    My contact at Curt said that the 8600 GVW package will not affect how the Curt Trailer Hitch # C15325 fits on your 1991 Chevrolet K2500. I recommend using this hitch because of how well Curt manufactures their hitches. The max Gross Towing Weight for this hitch is 16,000 lbs and the max Tongue Weight is 2,400 lbs. Keep in mind that you will need to know your vehicle's towing weight capacity. If your vehicle's towing weight capacity is less than the Gross Towing Weight of the hitch, then...

    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. A better solution would be for you to go with the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball # BWTS10056 if you also need to tow a trailer with a lunette ring.

  • 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...
