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.

I love the product and have owned a few B &W hitches. The only negative about this one was my wife bought it for me and didnt know the difference but purchased one that fits a 3/4 ton truck and not my half ton truck. Even with this I will be buying more B & W hitches, only I will be purchasing them myself.

I have had this for over a year now and use it on a regular basis with the F350. It stands up to its reputation and is as sturdy and reliable as I could have hoped for. Highly recommended!!

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.

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.

  • Which B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount Do I Need for a 2006 Ford F-250
    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS30048B is designed for a 3" receiver tube opening therefore if this is what you have on your 2006 Ford F-250 then yes, it will work for you. However, if I had to guess I would say that you have a 2" receiver tube opening on your F-250 therefore for a similar same ball mount with a 2" receiver tube opening you will need the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS10048B which offers a 5" drop and has the three hitch balls you are looking for (1-7/8",...

  • Will the Hitch Pin Hole On B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount Fit a 2021 Ford F-250 with 3" Hitch
    The trailer hitch pin hole on a 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty should be the standard 5/8" diameter. Since you have the truck, I recommend measuring to confirm. Therefore, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS30048B would be a great option since it also uses a 5/8" diameter hitch pin hole.

  • Will the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount fit 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch - 4-1/2" Drop, 4" Rise # BWTS30048B will fit your 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty as long as you have a 3" hitch. This also has a maximum drop of 4-1/2" and requires 11" from ground to the lowest point on the Tow & Stow. Without the minimum 11" clearance the hitch may hit the ground or other objects such as steep driveways or curbs. I have attached a review video for your reference.

  • Tongue Weight Capacity for B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount part # BWTS30048B
    The tongue weight (TW) capacity of the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount part # BWTS30048B will be 10% of the gross trailer weight (GTW) capacity for the respective hitch ball. So when you use the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball you'd have a TW capacity of 2,100 lb, when using the 2 inch ball 750 lbs, and when using 1-7/8 inch ball 350 lbs.
