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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (3614 Customer Reviews)

Stow the ball and mounting platform on this tri-ball ball mount beneath your hitch for a sleek look when you are done towing. Tow up to 3,500 lbs with the 1-7/8" ball, 7,500 lbs with the 2" ball, or 21,000 lbs with the 2-5/16" ball.

Horrible shipping. No box for the mount, and it was thrown into a much larger box with other metal brackets and straps with metal buckles so the B&W hitch got all scratched up, and it is missing a spring clip. Ugh.

I am sorry to hear that it arrived in that condition! I will make sure our customer service team reaches out to you about this.



by:

This hitch eliminates the spacers necessary on the 3” receiver doing away with the slop and noise that comes with them. I would recommend this hitch to anyone with a heavy duty truck with the 3” receiver.



by:

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.



by:

I originally ordered a Weigh Safe hitch, thinking it would rotate under the receiver when not needed, but it does not. I ordered this B&W that does so perfectly. My garage is barely long enough for the pickup and moving the ball into stow position prevents me having to remove it every time I pull into the garage. It would be too easy to be stolen if left loose in the back and in case if an accident I wouldn't want that hitch flying around inside the cab.



by:

Excellent quality. Nice looking and functions well. No second guesses about buying this item. Highly recommend it.



by:

My order was out of stock. E trailer notified me right away with an alternative. I called and receive a great description of the in store alternative. The parts will be shipped right away. Unbelievable customer service!!!

The hitch works like the day I bought it. Easy to use and store

Have made several purchases from trailer and have always been pleased with the items purchased



by:

Just received my B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop, 7" Rise - 21K - Black, and I am so thrilled about the product. The ordering was easy and it came to my house fairly quickly. They keep you up to date with what is going on, with your order, and that is fantastic. It completes my new Ford F250 LIMITED. Thank you!!



by:

Tough product, had the 2inch one. This is their 3” receiver!



by:

I am very happy with my purchase. The variable heights of the hitch are handy to keep my trailer level. I would recommend this hitch to anyone needing a hitch.



by:

Ordered this hitch for my 2021 F350 Lariat. Perfect fit with perfectly matched ratings to my vehicle capabilities. I REALLY appreciated the brochure that came in the box as it was informative, educational, and concise. Packaged very well and arrived promptly. Thanks guys/gals.



by:

This hitch is stellar, extremely well designed, built and made in the USA which is very important to me. I can't wait to pull with it!

Very stout. Quality. Don't drop it on your toe. Fast shipping. Paired with a good lock.

Best hitch ever!

The product is fantastic. Was not thrilled about how it showed up though.Caked in dust, not a problem. But water seemed to sit inside it at some point so the inside already had rusted.

Excellant

This thing is Awesome! It does everything I need, and folds out of the way.
Highly recommended.



by:

I bought this for my son for Christmas last year to use with his F-350 super duty with 3” receiver. He enjoys it so much he bought a 2” version for his older super duty plow truck.



by:

Great Hitch, flexible and very beefy. Great service, shipped quickly.



by:

I have a 2017 F350 4X4 with factory 20 inch wheels and no lift. I used several videos to help determine the amount of drop that I needed. I went with this hitch. It was delivered quickly. The box was a little "ratty" looking, but the hitch was not damaged. I installed the hitch easily and to my surprise there was less play than I had expected. I had to use the lowest drop setting to get the tongue of my trailers level.
Their description advises that you have a minimum of 11 inches from the bottom of the hitch to the ground/road. This hitch is "comes in" at just 11 inches of clearance. The stow & go feature also worked well. It is a little aggravating only because the hitch is heavy, which is a good thing. I made a short pull (unloaded) and there was minimal noise in the receiver. That can be eliminated with various solutions. The trailer pulled very well with no issues. So far I am pleased with my purchase. e-trailer also had the lowest price, as I was given a 5% discount...Thanks for that. I looked at numerous places/sites.



by:

It has worked well. I have appreciated the versatility and convenience of being able to stow it.



by:

Quality American made hitch. And as always, etrailer is tops with customer service. If you need a hitch like this, I highly recommend this one.



by:

Looks great. multiple trailers that I have towed,easy to adjust. It is locked on all the time and it is legal.

  • Can The B And W Tow And Stow 3 Ball Mount Work With Rock Tamers On A 2020 F450
    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop, 7" Rise - 21K - Black # BWTS30049B will not interfere with your rock tamers. From the hitch pin hole to the nearest point on the ball mount is 9-1/4 inches. This will give you plenty of space.

  • Tongue Weight Capacity of B and W Tow n Stow Ball Mounts # BWTS30049B
    The tongue weight rating of the B and W Tow n Stow Ball Mounts like the part # BWTS30049B is based on the ball that you use. Basically each ball has it's own weight capacity and the tongue weight capacity is 10 percent of the trailer weight rating listed. So for the 1-7/8 inch ball you'd have a 350 lb tongue weight capacity, for the 2 inch ball it would have a 750 lb capacity, and for the 2-5/16 inch 2,100 lb.

  • Extension When Stowed of B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS30049B
    When the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS30049B is in the stowed position the distance from the pin holes to the end of the shank is 4.5 inches and 5.7 inches.

  • Compatibility of B&W BWTS30049B Tow&Stow Adjustable Ball Mount with 2020 Ford F350
    The # BWTS30049B Tow & Stow ball mount is designed for 3 inch hitches, like what your 2020 F350 is equipped with. The upright or vertical portion of the B&W # BWTS30049B Tow & Stow adjustable ball mount is about 11 inches in total. If you measure 11 inches down from the top of the receiver tube of your F-350, you'll have a pretty good approximation of where the bottom of the ball mount would sit.

  • Does Ball Platform of B and W Tow n Stow part # BWTS30049B Require Locks
    Actually the B and W Tow n Stow part # BWTS30049B that you have has a locking mechanism built into the channel which would prevent the platform from getting removed. 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.

  • Which B and W Tow & Stow Adjustable Ball Mount for 2021 Ford F-350 with 3 inch Hitch
    For the 3 inch hitch of your 2021 Ford F-350 to determine if you need the 4-1/2 inch drop Tow and Stow part # BWTS30048B or the 7-1/2 inch drop part # BWTS30049B will be based largely on the trailers you plan to tow and how tall the coupler sits from the ground when level. The exact way to determine this would be to measure from the top of your hitch opening down to the ground compared to the distance from the bottom of the coupler lip to the ground when trailer is sitting level.

  • Best B&W Tow and Stow Ball Mount for a 2022 Ford F-350
    I would be happy to help you find the right ball mount for your husbands birthday. You are gong to need to measure the receiver on the end of his F-350 to determine the correct ball mount you need. You will want to measure the inside of the square. It should be 3' x 3" or 2.5" x 2.5". The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount item # BWTS30048B you were looking at fits a 3" hitch. Which means it would need a receiver that measures 3" x 3". There is a factory option for a 3' hitch receiver from Ford...

  • Can 3" Accessory Fit With Smaller Hitch Receiver Opening
    Your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD will likely have either a 2" or a 2-1/2" trailer hitch receiver. You can confirm this by measuring the inside height and width of the receiver on your pickup (see attached). If you are trying to use a 3" accessory in a smaller receiver then there unfortunately aren't any adapters that work for your application. If you do have a 3" receiver then yes, you can use an accessory with a 3" shank, like part # BWTS30049B. If you are referring to something different...

  • Is There A Weigh Safe 180 Ball Mount Available With A 1-7/8" Ball For A 3" Hitch
    I do have another option available that will suit your needs, but we currently do not offer a Weigh Safe 180 that is compatible with a 3" hitch and has a 1-7/8" ball, unfortunately. With that being said, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch # BWTS30049B will have the same 21,000 pound capacity, but will have slightly less drop/rise at 7-1/2". This will also include 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" balls, making it extremely versatile.

    The ball on the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS30049B is only designed to rotate inside the mount. There is a snap ring which keeps the ball inside the mount when you remove the pin. So while the balls can be removed it would take a bit of work. Be sure to check out our review and operation video linked below to see how the pins secure the hitch together and allow it to move into a use or storage position.

  • Locking Pin Kit for B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for 3" Trailer Hitch Receivers
    To lock your B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS30049B to your 3" hitch receiver I recommend using the InfiniteRule Locking Pins # IR29FR because it's been tailored specifically for this ball mount and receiver size. The kit comes with a single pin for the receiver and then 3 pins for the ball mount itself, and all of them are keyed alike so you don't need to keep track of multiple keys.

It will lock the platform portion of the ball mount to the shank and the ball to the side brackets. these aren't required by the design of the hitch as the ball platform can't be fully removed without removing the entire ball mount from the receiver.

    Though I may have another option available for you, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS30049B is not available with a pintle hitch as of yet. With that being said, there are actually no current options available for the 3" hitches being used, so you will need to use a reducer, like the # 58552, if you do not already have one. This will allow you to go one of two ways. First will be the Curt Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2-1/2" Hitches # C45908. This is rated to 20,000 pounds and...

These cannot be used with trailer towing they are only designed and rated for flat towing vehicles. If you need more rise or drop than the Curt offers you can go with the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-526.
