I already have and use these products. They are the best I have ever had on my truck. Towing is perfect with no wobble sway or play. The unit I purchased is a birthday present. I will follow up with his comments

Thank you so much for the fast delivery of the hitch and ball I ordered. It was a snap to install with the accompanying directions. I did'nt have a bit of problem and the Diversi-Tech trailer hitch looks great. Really adds snap to the rear of my Avalanche. Thanks again for the great service. Look forward to doing business with you again in the future. John

This is my third DT (FLASH) Draw Bar. All three are in service. They are light weight but have higher GTW capacities then heavier draw bars. The four star rating is due to a couple things: 1) the shank on this Lastest purchase (from Flash) is not completely polished when set in the rise orientation. I used SemiChrome and a buffing when to finish the job. All draw bars fit a little loose in the receiver, especially the DT8200 model causing some rattling and clunking when pulling an unloaded trailer. I resolved this issue by drilling n taping the second hole that was in the receiver side ahead of the lock pin hole and wrenching the draw bar down n to the side. Rock solid now and no more clunking. It's a quite set up. The secure lock is easy to use and is theft proof.


Comments
Still loving the set up. Still looks like new. Make sure you weld a 1/4 plate or nut to the outside of the receiver if you plan to tap and wrench a bolt into the side of the receiver like I described in my previous review. It eliminates the slop but the treads will strip out over time if you dont provide for more bolt threads to be captured when wrenching down the bolt to remove the play in the draw bar. Be aware that the steel bolt WILL wear a spot on the draw bar over time. I stopped using the bolt and purchased a U-bolt and plat to clamp the outside of the draw bar to the receiver to eliminate up/down play. This set up is better because it doesnt damage the side of the draw bar but provides a secure noise-free towing experience. Some guys may not be bothered by the clunking noise when stopping and starting but it drives me nuts. Thumbs up if it doesnt bother you :-

I work in a machine shop and this is a great piece of hardware to add to your towing arsenal. The built quality is great. I bought this to use on my subaru xv crosstrek with the torklift hitch so it would be easier to get the hitch in and out without crawling under the car to remove the hitch pin.

Great solid hitch but the lock is poor quality. I left it on the truck for several months (with lock protection cap on) and one day I went to remove. Found lock tumbler had shifted and was unable to insert key to remove. Had to drill out lock to get ball mount off the truck. I know have a $80 aluminum paper weight.

Love this hitch, looks sweet on my lariat. You'd be hard pressed to find a better product then what these folks are peddling. 10 Stars!

I was looking for an aluminum receiver when I came across etrailer.com. Upon searching I found the Diversi-Tech self locking ball mount. Honestly I didn't know these existed. Being one who has lost my keys off the bumper in the past this caught my eye immediately. I called to place the order and the staff was extremely helpful. I mentioned I was leaving on a trip and I was told they would try to get the product to me before I left. I've heard this in the past, but rarely does it ever pan out. Much to my excitement,two days before I left the product was at my door. Very satisfied customer. I will not hesitate to shop with etrailer again.

I like this hitch, the key can be a little difficult to mange behind the ball. I I could change anything it would be the distance from the pin to the end of the hitch. It is fairly short and should be 2-3 inches longer.

Great product love the way it looks on my truck. No more rust to look at from the back Side of this truck. Love the locking mechanism to. I could see someone walking away With this beauty. All in all its a great tow hitch, love it!!!

This product was DOA. First I couldn't retract the pins. I followed the troubleshooting guide, and was able to retract them. Then, I couldn't lock it back up. They key got stuck. I followed the troubleshooting guide again. Nothing works. I am in the process of getting a return label from eTrailer. I am not interested in a replacement of the same type. Have read reviews of similar problems. Clearly a manufacturing problem.

Perfect for the Subaru Crosstrek. You do not have to crawl under the vehicle to put the safety pin in place. This ball mount is also very light weight and does not rust.

This is solid. But also surprisingly light. Installed easily and locking mechanism is very smooth. Wish it came in anodized black: my only complaint. Feels like a value at the etrailer price. I am using on an Audi Q7 so have it flipped over so as to get a 1" rise.

I ordered and received exactly what I expected. I was able to track the order to the exact day of delivery. I couldn't be happier. I would recommend "etrailer" to any of my friends if they were to need anything regarding trailers... thank you for an excellent experience...

This is a premium ball mount with premium quality. I now have two and I’m very pleased with their appearance, durability and security. A little aluminum polish once a year makes them shine like new.



- DTLBM8200
by:

I purchased this product along with a stainless steel 2" ball. I could not be happier about this hitch! It looks like a piece of art; very shiny. The locking mechanism is a must. It is a little expensive but how often do you buy a trailer hitch? You don't have to worry about anyone stealing it either! I want to give these out for Christmas, they are cool.



- DTLBM8200
by:

This product has worked up to my expectations. I use it about six times a year and then store it inside the truck. So far so good. I would recommend it.



- DTLBM8200
by:

Is a wonderful hitch- the only issue I have is that I would like the "anti-rattle pins" further back. They do not reach the receiver on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. As for etrailer- they are top notch. They called to confirm my unusual order before they shipped, sent me notifications along the way, and even a follow up email to make sure all is well. Would definitely recommend etrailer.com



- DTLBM8200
by:

I ordered this because even though mine wasn't broken I wanted a bullet aluminum one. No welds. Good looking, solid, and weighs a lot less than my last one (which is steel). I will begin to put it through the rigors of my towing starting tomorrow. Glad I found this product.



- DTLBM8200
by:

Great Product! Solid, well built, perfect for my Subaru Cross-Trek. Operates exactly as advertised. Love the slide in-out, key lock and roll with your trailer. While a little pricey, it's best in class and only ball mount you'll ever need to purchase.



- DTLBM8200
by:

This Ball mount seems extremely well built, only thing I was expecting was the anti rattle spring loaded balls and there was none to be found on my particular drawbar. Unless they used a stock photo and they no longer provide the anti rattle option. I think this will do a great job paired up with my Stainless Steel Convert-a-ball.



- DTLBM8200
by:

This ball mount exceeded my every expectation. The self-locking is bad-ass; and, the anti-rattle is a really nice touch. This thing is a beast! What a great site. I'll be back.



- DTLBM8200

Really cool hitch and works like a charm! I really like the secure locking mechanism and easy to identify key!



- DTLBM8200

Very nice looking and it fits fine. The only problem is the rubber boot cover for the key lock does not seal off very well to the lock hole.

  • Recommended 2" Stainless Ball and Anti Rattle Device for the Flash Self-Locking Aluminum Ball Mount
    The Brophy 2" Stainless Steel Hitch Ball part # SC23-C will work out great with the Flash Self-Locking Aluminum Ball Mount part # DTLBM8200. For an anti rattle for it use the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches part # RM-061 this is my go to anti rattle because it is very effective at keeping things secure. I've linked a video on it for you to check out.

  • Recommended Lubricant for Diversi-Tech Self-Locking Aluminum Ball Mount # DTLBM8200
    Diversi-Tech recommends lubricating their self-locking ball mounts with air tool oil. Air tool oil is thin enough so that it will work its way through the various parts of the mechanism, but not so thick that it will become sticky and attract dirt and grime. Place a few drops on the pins that secure the ball mount into the hitch and the lock, then lock and unlock the lock several times to work the oil into the mechanism.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    I have a solution for you, but the Diversi Tech Ball Mount part # DTLBM8200 is designed to fit 2 inch hitches so it wouldn't work for your truck that has a 2-1/2 inch hitch. For a ball mount confirmed to fit your hitch size with the same amount of drop (2 inches), you would want the Curt Forged Ball Mount part # C45456. This ball mount has a 20k capacity which would be way more than you would need. For a 2-5/16 inch ball you would want part # 63840.

  • Will Flash Self-Locking, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTLBM8200 Fit 2017 Ford F-250 Hitch
    The Flash Self-Locking, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTLBM8200 that you referenced is a fit for 2 inch trailer hitches like what comes on most vehicles. If your 2017 Ford F-250 has a 2 inch hitch (measured internally height and width), this this would fit and work well for you. The locking pins would also work too. If you have a different hitch size like 2-1/2 inch or 3 inch let me know and I'll come up with a solution for you.

  • Are Hitch Balls Made of Aluminum
    I know of no aluminum hitch balls. Steel - raw, chrome plated or nickel-plated - is the material of choice for a hitch ball due to its tensile strength, which far exceeds that of aluminum. Tensile strength is the measure of the force required to pull something to its breaking point. High-tensile-strength steel is about 4 times as strong as aluminum and 3 times as strong as stainless steel. We do offer billet aluminum ball mounts like the fixed type # DTLBM8200 and the adjustable...

  • Short Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2013 Volkswagen Touareg
    Having a ball mount that is longer should not be an issue. It actually can provide more clearance when turning. The standard for a 2 inch ball mount is around 8 to 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. We currently offer several aluminum ball mounts for 2 inch hitches that have a 2 inch drop. Alumistinger, # AM3503 Self-Locking ball mount, # DTLBM8200 Solid aluminum ball mount, # DTBM5200

  • Recommended Two Inch Hitch Ball To Use With Fastway Aluminum Ball Mount
    The ball mount you referenced, part # DTLBM8200, has a hitch ball shank hole that measures 1 inch diameter and the platform measures 1 inch thick. After doing more research I found that the shank on the # SC23-C hitch ball is actually 2-1/8 inches long. The shank is considered a medium length on this hitch ball. A medium shank is considered between 2 and 3 inches. When installing a hitch ball, after the nut and washer have been installed, there should be at least one thread showing below...

  • Fastway Locking Aluminum Ball Mount Recommendation with 1 inch Diameter Hitch Ball
    If you are looking for a locking Fastway Aluminum Ball Mount that has a 1 inch diameter ball hole the part # DTLBM8200 is what you want. The # DTLBM9200 having a diameter ball hole of 1-1/4 inch would be too large.

  • What Size Locking Hitch Pin Does Flash Solid Aluminum Ball Mount DTBM5200 Use
    The hitch pin hole of the ball mount is the standard 5/8" and the ball mount fits a 2" hitch receiver so any 2" hitch receiver lock or pin with clip will work with the Flash Solid Ball Mount part # DTBM5200. The etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # e98882 will work well because it is stainless steel to resist corrosion. The # DTBM5200 ball mount that you referenced has a ball hole shank diameter of 1-1/4", so you can use part # A-90 for a 2" ball or part # 63836 for a 2-5/16"...
