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.

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. 415253

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). 529225

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 etrailer.com too. Even curious George likes it. 363220

I just received my hitch from etrailer.com. 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. 546051


Comments
I am still very satisfied with the hitch I bought from etrailer.com. 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.

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. 729033

Ask the Experts about this Fastway Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • 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...

  • How Are the Two Hitch Balls Attached in the Fastway 2-Ball Ball Mount?
    The Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 6" Drop, 6" Rise - 18K # FA42-00-2625 has the hitch balls that install with a hex screw on the backside of the ball mount. 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.

  • Storage Case for Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2 Hitch - 6 Drop, 6 Rise - 18K
    We do have some ball mount bags that you could use for Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 6" Drop, 6" Rise - 18K Item # FA42-00-2625. 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. The bag is 15" long x 6" tall x 4" wide.

  • Ball Mount to Fit a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver with 6 Inches of Drop
    We have a couple ball mounts that are going to be very close to what you're looking for. The Curt Ball Mount # 45291 is a fixed ball mount that has 7-3/4 inches of drop and 10-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It also has a maximum tongue weight of 1,200 pounds. However, it is steel and not aluminum. You also need a hitch ball # C40030. Another option is the Fastway Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2625 that's rated up to 1,800 pounds...

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount for a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with 2-1/2 Inch Receiver Tube
    We have a number of adjustable ball mounts that will fit the 2-1/2" receiver tube opening on your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 which I have attached for you. 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. The difference between them is that part # AM3405 has a nylon cap which will not require lubrication. They both have zinc plated hitch balls. Instead, I recommend...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Anti-Rattle Device for 2-1/2 Inch to 2 Inch Sleeve Adapter
    I do have one other option for you to help stabilize what I assume is a 2" ball mount being used with a 2-1/2" to 2" sleeve inside a 2-1/2" receiver tube. For this, I recommend to use the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-063 between the receiver tube and sleeve and the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-033 between the sleeve and ball mount. This device would apply pressure is all directions and you don't have to worry about heavy duty towing capability. That said, there is really...

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.

Although we do offer friction sway control adapters # RP26005 for 1-1/4-inch Class II hitches and # RP26003 for 2-inch Class III hitches, there is no comparable part for 2-1/2-inch shanks.
