The Fastway Flash Series HD ball mount is strong, durable, and easy on the eyes, making it the best of both worlds. It's solid, aircraft-grade aluminum construction is durable, rust resistant, and sturdy enough to last for years to come. With a polished mirror finish, this ball mount will make any vehicle look fantastic.

The adjustable ball height lets you tow a variety of trailers with different tongue heights. Having both 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.

Changing Ball Height and Replacing Balls

To adjust the height of the ball, remove the pin so that you are able to slide the ball platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Re-insert the pin once you have found the correct height and replace the clip.

Switching the hitch ball is just as easy. Simply remove the pin holding the ball platform in place and slide the platform off of the shank. Flip the platform upside down so that the ball you want to use is on top. Then slide the ball platform back onto the shank and replace the pin.

Really sturdy, however it is extremely (not made of lightweight materials) heavy and a chore to mount. Also, the lock broke and it is in the locked position so I can't use it. I have to figure out how to take it apart. Better of spending the extra cash and getting a Thule.

This is a great addition to my 3500HD Duramax...quality construction and looks good. Lots of compliments...especially like that it fits directly into receiver with out adapter..


Great hitch, perfect for my motorcycle trailer and toy hauler. And it looks amazing on my F350! My next purchase from will be a 5th wheel hitch, great pricing and fast shipping. You guys rock!


Just purchased a Fastway FLASH E-series HD adjustable ball mount for my new '17 F250 Superduty. The mount looks great out of the box and fantastic on the truck. Will be towing a triple axle trailer with 30' center console soon as well as a utility trailer off and on. Nice to have one set-up that's able to tow two different loads. The polished finish is very nice and the matching lock set looks very secure. Amazingly fast shipping from too. Even curious George likes it.


Best looking and strongest ball hitch out there. Well worth the money


Works great!


Product looks great just wondering if a one and seven eights inch ball can be added if the 2 inch ball is removed


This is a well built 2 1/2" adjustable ball mount that provides you with 6" of rise or drop to keep your trailer level. Currently use this on my F250 super duty to haul my MX5200 Kubota tractor with a bucket, and bush hog (~9K).


Great service if you need to call in, fast shipping and excellent communication with Peyton H. Thanks for the awesome experience and the great product!!!


This is a quality piece, very heavy for aluminum but it needs to be. It looks awesome on the truck and the reversing of the balls to the back side is genius. Plan to get one for my son for his birthday.



Liked this so much I got one for my son for Christmas.


Shipped Quickly Well Packaged

This hitch is very well made with smooth edges yet thick and beefy !!
Nice Purchase Nice Hitch Easy Assembly Fits Perfect

It’s so brilliantly polished ?? that it makes the truck look filthy.


Looks great in backup camera
More towing
than I need. 18k
I think nicer than neighbors across street
Had to buy pin to hook it on. $3.49
Thank you for prompt delivery


Very pleased with this adjustable ball mount and It arrived promptly. At first I thought the polished finish would be too flashy, but it really compliments my truck nicely.


Love my new hitch and the adjustability. Much lighter than my previous hitch


The hitch looks amazing and is very well built! The guys & gals at etrailer are extremely helpful & knowledgeable! I would highly recommend getting all your towing needs from them!


I haven't used this yet but the shipping was very quick and was what i ordered.


I just received my hitch from The material and overall look of the hitch is excellent. Although a little pricey I like the height adjustment and the different size hitch balls. I pull different size and type trailers and I like the ease of adjustments. I tried a different type adjustable hitch in the past it was big and bulky very noisy and heavy. This one stores easy in my double cab Silverado and is not excessively heavy. The shipping was fast from etrailer and the ease of finding what you want on the website was great.



I am still very satisfied with the hitch I bought from I use it and adjust the heights a lot. I would recommend this hitch to anyone wanting one. The etrailer website is easy to navigate and shipping was fast. Like the fact I dont need an adapter for the 2.5 hitch.


I do a lot of towing and this setup does everything I need with no worries.well worth the investment



Still working well. Love it


Great product Great price


So far, so good


I finally got my new Trailer Coupler - Adjustable Channel Mount - Thumb Latch - Black - 2-5/16" Ball - 14,000 lbs' / Demco 6-Hole Adjustable Channel Bracket - Weld On - 12" Tall - 20,000 lbs, / Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 6" Drop, 6" Rise - 18K all welded and hooked up for a test drive. Everything worked great. Now my company has the ability to haul this equipment with multiple vehicles. Thank you etrailer for the good information and competitive pricing.


Great hitch and fast service! Thx


As a past B&W user, I was looking for a hitch that had a rating of over 15k lbs., but wasn't over engineered and looked like a steel anvil hanging off my truck. There's a lot of nice looking products out there, but none that are stout enough for what I needed. This was the answer. It's a great looking hitch that's simply designed and with a 18k lb rating, was plenty to pull what we needed.

I would recommend this hitch to anyone needing a strong hitch without sacrificing looks.



Perfect. Easy to use, handles what I need and I would buy it again.


Love it!!!


Love it! Looks great


So far so good. Fits the 2 1/2" receiver snugly and adjusts easily. Installed it on a 1 ton work truck that hauls single axle trailers up to 16k trailer. No longer need to keep two different balls in the truck.

  • Weight Capacity of Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount FA42-00-2625
    I am not sure which Andersen hitch you have, but the Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2625 you referenced is made for 2-1/2 inch hitches which allows the shank and rest of the ball mount to be larger and therefore stronger. You should note that this only has an 18k capacity when you use the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball and if you use the 2 inch ball you are reduced to 12,000 lbs.

  • Is a Sway Control System Needed for a 2015 Keystone 28 Foot Travel Trailer
    A sway control system is not really a requirement but it is always good to have as it will help you keep the trailer under control during strong winds, curvy roads, or sudden maneuvers. The best type of sway control system for you is really going to depend on your trailer and tow vehcile. If the trailer's gross trailer weight (GTW) is more than 50% of the vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) then I recommend using a weight distribution system with integrated sway control.

  • Weight Capacity of Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # FA86-00-3685
    The Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # FA86-00-3685 referenced in your question does not have a specific towing weight capacity. These will be used to secure the ball mount shank into the hitch receiver and the ball mount platform to the ball mount on the Flash E Series Ball Mounts like # FA42-00-2625. You will simply follow the weight capacity of the ball mount or whichever component in your towing system has the lowest rating.

  • How to Choose Adjustable Ball Mount for Chevy Silverado & 2-1/2 Hitch
    When determining the rise or drop needed for a ball mount, there are two measurements you will want to take. Starting with your 2017 Chevy Silverado, you will want to take a measurement from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver when the truck is on level ground. Then on your trailer, you will measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. If the hitch height on your truck is higher, you will need a ball mount with a rise, if the coupler measurement is higher, you...

  • Will Weight Distribution Be Needed on a 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    With the trailer weight that you provided, I recommend using a weight distribution system with sway control on your towing setup. Any time the trailer weighs more than half of the weight of the two vehicle we recommend using a weight distribution system. Even using a hitch with a 2-1/2 receiver opening will not negate the use of weight distribution with a trailer weighing as much as yours. I have attached a FAQ article on weight distribution that will have more information on when weight...

One example is CE Smith Ball Mount Storage Bag - Nylon - Black Item # CE27481. It would be a tight fit though and the ball mount would have to be disassembled.

  • Sway Control Recommendation for Ford Truck that Can be Upgraded to Weight Distribution
    Weight distribution wouldn't hurt even though your truck definitely has more than enough capacity for the trailer you are towing. I would try friction sway control first since that's what you are leaning towards like part # 83660 and then if that doesn't give you the towing experience you want you could always upgrade from there to a weight distribution system. The Reese weight distribution system part # RP67509 is a great choice too that the # 83660 can easily integrate into as it has...

When installed on the shank, the shank will ensure the screw can't back out too far for function. It is possible that the screw can loosen slightly, but the ball mount platform and the diameter of the two ball shank won't allow too much movement.

However, the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount Kit part # AM3400 or part # AM3405 are designed to fit a 2" receiver tube opening therefore will not work for you.

  • Can I Pull A Travel Trailer With The Roadmaster High Low Adapter RM-058-4?
    The Roadmaster High Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2-1/2" Hitches # RM-058-4 is only made for flat towing because flat towing does not put much stress or tongue weight on the hitch. Whereas with trailer towing, there is always some stress and tongue weight put on the hitch and adapter. While they may work, as you have seen people do this, I still do not recommend using it in that manner. Instead, I would just use a drop hitch to accomplish this. Since your vehicle has a 2-1/2" receiver opening,...
