This cutaway view of the shank shows the locking mechanism in action. The locking pins extend out from the shank when the key is turned, locking the ball mount into the hitch.

Key in lock that locks ball platform to leg of ball mount

The ball platform locks to the ball mount with an internal lock. When you unlock the platform you can slide it up or down to adjust the ball height. You can also slide the platform off, reverse it, and slide it back on to change ball sizes.

Great product. Easily adjustable which is great because I pull a couple of different trailers.


Awesome hitch! I've had it on for a year now. I know I should take it off, but it's so pretty! Just be sure to lubricate the locks well so they don't seize up. I did a lot of research when shopping for a hitch, you won't be disappointed!


The quality of the hitch is excellent, plus it looks great on the Suburban. This product was exactly what I was looking for. I have three trailers that I keep in several locations. Now I never have to concern myself with having the wrong hitch on the tow vehicle.


My wife ordered the hitch for me. I own a mowing business and hook trailers a lot. This hitch is remarkable. It adjusts so quickly and seems to be well constructed. A great product.

Hitch works perfectly. It gets so many looks of envy when its noticed. Its great. I dont think I would own any other adjustable ball hitch.
Billy W - 01/22/2016


I needed two different trailer balls. This hitch eliminated the need to carry the other one in the vehicle. It is a nice neat setup for the tow. There is some slop between my receiver and the hitch; but other than that it works great.


I am impressed not only with the product, but the service, communication, processing and quick shipping. This was my first order placed with and will not be the last.
Thank you!

It has worked well, no issues at all. I have not tried to reverse the ball or remove it from the receiver.
Wade - 02/04/2015


This unit is the trick to safe towing of trailers up to 10K. A level tow load is the safest tow load. This Ball Mount speaks safety and much more. It's fit and finish are second to none. With the keyed lock system it it easy on and off and easy elevation adjustments. I have towed many trailers and this hitch is number one. Best in class.


If you are looking for a solid trailer hitch I would spend the extra money and get one of these solid hitches. I carry a lot of weight behind my Tahoe and my Dually and have one of these hitches on each. I suggest not trying to save a $100 and get a less expensive one as they are not as strong, its not worth losing a load on the highway. Remember you always get what you pay for... this hitch is awesome.


Service was excellent and delivery was fast and on time as stated. The products fit and finish is also excellent. I just recieved this product and haven't had the chance to pull with it yet,but you will not find a better looking or working tool period.the keys fit well and the locks/pins move freely the way they should. I would buy this product again and from every time. Great job


Extremely well made, heavier than I expected. Love the key locks instead of pins.

Love it! Very easy to adjust .

Looks good and it works


Freekin awesome hitch! Love all the locking features. No pic. Don't want peeps to see my plates. Highly recommend. Only hitch I will ever buy again! John T.


Both the product and etrailer have exceeded my expectations. I'm in a retail business and wish my entire staff was this efficient. This product may be expensive in some peoples eyes, but the quality and construction is second to none and I'm sure it is considerably less money than what they are going to hook to it.

Thanks again.



This hitch is constructed even better than I thought, very heavy duty! Love the retractable pins and the key locks!


Quick delivery, great hitch, looks and performs beautiful. Can't beat etrailer. I could of gotten away with a 6 inch drop but I bought the 8. No problem with ground clearence on my 2013 F 350.


VERY nice product. Costly, but price reflected in quality. A great solution to carrying separate hitches with different ball sizes as I've been doing.


Too early to give complete review but on inspection product looks Five Star!

Fantastic. Best design Ive seen. Works great and locks to vehicle. Super product.
GEORGE M - 01/23/2020


Great hitch
Quick shipment
I thought
it had an anti-rattle but I was wrong.
Easy to use and perfect for my use.


Very impressive so far. Got here in 3 days in the middle of Christmas shipping. Very purdy. Fits well and locks nicely. So far so good.


Perfect fit. Keys operate easily. It rattles a bit, but no more than my former hitch.


Great product, solved the problem of leveling several trailers.


Awesome ball mount for a reasonable pri ce.


Excellent design and materials. Would recommend to others.


Excellent reponse, delivered as requested, the correct product with expidited shipping no extra charge.


AMAZED at how fast it was shipped and delivered.
product and company to deal with!!!
Thank you.

See what our Experts say about this Fastway Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Diversi-Tech Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Will Not Unlock
    It is entirely possible that there is enough pressure still on the pin that goes through the hitch pin hole to prevent you from easily turning the locking mechanism. This could have occurred from the weight of the trailer when it was connected. To relive the tension you will want to attempt to move, wiggle, persuade the ball mount. This should make the lock easier to turn. If you have to persuade it, use a rubber mallet so you do not damage the finish or metal of the ball mount. Another...

  • How to Determine if the Diversi-Tech Ball Mount # DTALBM6800 Would Drag the Ground
    The Diversi-Tech Ball Mount # DTALBM6800 that you referenced is a great adjustable ball mount with plenty of capacity and rise/drop range. If you need a drop of around 8 inches this wouldn't be overkill. You should note that this ball mount will measure 12-7/8 inches from the top of the shank that inserts into the hitch to the furthest point down when this ball mount is in the furthest drop position it will go. You would want to measure from the top of your hitch opening down 12-7/8 inches...

  • Will Fastway Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Work With Class V Trailer Hitch
    If the Class V trailer hitch you have installed has a 2-inch receiver opening, then the Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, part # DTALBM6800 will work great for you. This ball mount includes a 2-inch hitch ball and a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. This mount has a maximum rise of 9 inches and a maximum drop of 8 inches with 1 inch increments. When used with the 2 inch hitch ball the towing capacity is 8,000 lbs and when used with the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball the towing capacity increases...

  • Comparing Diversi-Tech Ball Mounts # DTALBM6800 and # DTALBM6600
    The two ball mounts that you referenced are basically the exact same ball mount with the exception that the # DTALBM6800 can do an 8 inch drop and a 9 inch rise and the # DTALBM6600 can do a 6 inch drop and a 7 inch rise. I would think you would be just fine with the 6 inch drop version, but that really depends on the height of the trailers you plan on towing. I attached a help article that details how to determine how much rise/drop you would need to tow a trailer level.

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2 inch HItch
    The sleeve of the # DTALBM6825 cannot be removed so that it can be installed in a 2 inch hitch. The problem is the hitch pin device sticks out too far. You would need to go with the 2 inch hitch version part # DTALBM6800 instead.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount to Tow Multiple Trailers with a 2013 Ford F-150 with 6 Inch Lift
    Since the lowest of your trailers needs a ball mount with a 9-1/2 inch drop I recommend going with the Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM7000 with the 10 inch drop. It is better to have that little bit of extra drop and not need it than to have a ball mount that does not offer enough drop. The tongue weight of the trailer could pull down the your 2013 Ford F-150 enough to tow it level with the other ball mount, # DTALBM6800, but there is no guarantee that it will pull...

  • Availability of Fastway Self-Locking Ball Mount # DTALBM6800 with 1-7/8 and 2 Hitch Balls
    Yes, we do have a ball mount like the Self-Locking, Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls # DTALBM6800 that comes with 1-7/8" and 2" hitch balls instead of the 2" and 2-5/16" that you are currently looking at. You can find this with part # DTALBM6407 on our site. This part is compatible with a 2" hitch receiver and has a 4" Drop and 5" Rise. The 1-7/8" hitch ball has a weight capacity of 3,500 lbs while the 2" hitch ball has a weight capacity of 8,000 lbs.

  • Dimensions of Diversi-Tech Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount
    The Diversi-Tech Ball Mount, part # DTALBM6625, has a 2-1/2" shank that fits 2-1/2" receivers, and has a 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise and is not designed to be reduced to fit a 2" receiver. If you have a 2" receiver on your Ram 2500 you would need to go with the Diversi-Tech Ball Mount, # DTALBM6600 , or the Diversi-Tech Ball Mount, # DTALBM6800 .

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for a Ford F-350 Pickup
    The adjustable ball mount you will need will depend on the height of the top of the hitch opening on your F-350 with 2-1/2 inch receiver hitch. We have an article that explains how to measure to select the correct ball mount, see link. For instance, on my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 the top of the receiver opening is 20 inches from the ground when parked on a level surface. I use an adjustable drop receiver at 5 inches of drop, top of receiver opening to top of ball mount, for towing a equipment...

  • Will Fastway Locking Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM6800-2S Fit 2-1/2-Inch Hitch with Adapter Sleeve
    The Fastway Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM6800-2S is intended for 2-inch hitch receivers but not for 2-1/2-inch types. It would not work with a hitch reducer sleeve in place because its locking pins would not be able to reach through the adapter. For your 2-1/2-inch hitch a better choice is the Fastway # DTALBM6825 which also has a 10K capacity and the same 8-inch drop and 9-inch rise.

  • 2 inch Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation to Replace 2-1/2 inch Ball Mount
    The Diversi-Tech Ball Mounts for 2-1/2 inches, like part # DTALBM6825-3S, is intended only for 2-1/2 inch hitch receivers. The sleeve is press-fit and is not removable. Your only real option is to upgrade to a 2 inch ball mount like the part # DTALBM6800.

  • Can I Use The Fastway Self-Locking Adjustable Ball Mount On 2" and 2-1/2" Receivers?
    The Fastway Self-Locking, Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # DTALBM6827 will only work on 2-1/2" receivers. The adapter must stay on to properly lock the hitch into the receiver. For a 2" receiver you will need the Fastway Self-Locking, Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # DTALBM6800-2S.

  • Will SoftRide Anti-Rattle # SR15219 Work With MaxxTow Adjustable Ball Mount MT70067
    It is not recommended to deviate from the original manufacturer components because the combination has not been tested together for fit, compatibility and safety. With that being said, I went to the warehouse and measured the holes of the MaxxTow MT70067 channel portion and the diameter is 11/16 of an inch and the diameter of the pin that comes in the package is a 1/2 inch. The SoftRide Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin # SR25219 has a pin diameter of 5/8 inch, which is 1/16th inch smaller than...

    The sleeve that is mounted to the Solid-Tow Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, part # DTSTBM6825 is not removable to allow it to work with a 2 inch receiver opening, but we do have an option for you. I recommend part # DTALBM6800. This adjustable ball mount has the versatility that allows you to be able to go from an 8 inch drop to a 9 inch rise in 1 inch increments. It also includes 2 chrome-plates hitch balls, a 2 inch and a 2-5/16 inch. This ball mount has the same towing weight capacity...

  • Which Lock Core Replacement for Self-Locking Fastway Adjustable Hitch DTALBM6800
    In order to replace the keys on your # DTALBM6800 you will need to install new lock cores with matching keys using the Re-Keying Kit for DTLBM and DTALBM Series Self-Locking Aluminum Ball Mounts - 2 Locks # DTLBM02RK. There is not a key only since those locks are designed to be more secure than a standard lock core.

  • Availability of Rustproof Ball Mount with 1-7/8" and 2" Hitch Ball Combo
    We do have different adjustable ball mounts available that can be locked to the trailer hitch receiver, but the only all-in-one self-locking system comes from Fastway, like with part # DTALBM6800, and they simply don't offer a 1-7/8" hitch ball. What I recommend doing is using a Weigh Safe ball mount like the 180 Hitch # LTB4-2 which comes with an aluminum shank and mounting platform as well as stainless steel 2" and 2-5/16" hitch balls. This ball mount is for a 2" hitch receiver and has...

  • Can Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6800 withstand Indiana Winters
    I would always recommend storing a ball mount of any type and in any geographic location because I personally hate bumping by shins or knees on them! I have also seen some get corroded and stuck in the hitch receiver so that is another reason to take it out when not in use. The outer parts of the Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6800, will withstand those harsh Indiana winters, salt brine, debris, and all.

  • Can Locking Actuator in Diversi-Tech/Fastway Aluminum Ball Mount be Replaced
    The only internal pieces that are replaceable on a Diversi-Tech ball mount are the lock cores like what you mentioned with part # DTLBM02RK. Since this is the case you will need to replace the entire ball mount. I know this isn't the news you wanted to hear, but it's the only solution for your situation. You can use a direct replacement like part # DTALBM6800 which fits a 2" hitch receiver and has an 8" drop and 9" rise, but I recommend going with an upgrade like the B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS10043B...

  • Ball Mount Adapter Fit For Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank
    I have a solution for you, but the Replacement Platform and Hitch Balls for Fastway Adjustable Ball Mounts # DTBM180 that you referenced will not work on your Equal-i-zer weight distribution shank. That replacement platform is designed to fit Fastway adjustable ball mounts like the # DTALBM6800. I recommend the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount Adapter # BA-1. This ball mount is designed to fit weight-distribution shanks with 3/4 inch diameter holes that are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart. My co-worker...
