    The Fastway Flash E 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.

Video Transcript for Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway Flash E-series lines of adjustable two-ball mounts. If you have multiple trailers that you tow with your vehicle, it can be kind of a hassle even having just two ball mounts. Whether we're wanting to change the height for our different riser drops for our trailer, or if we have a different coupler size on our trailer, it can be a little cumbersome to have two or three or more ball mounts. That's where our Flash E-series is going to come into play. It's going to allow us to adjust the height very quickly, as well as the ball size to match up to any trailer that we need to.Our Fastway ball mounts are going to be available in a lot of different configurations. We're going to have the 2" shank that'll go into our 2" receiver tube opening, as well as a 2-1/2" shank that can fit in some of the bigger trucks.

They're going to be available in a a lot of different sizes of rises and drops, so you'll be able to pick whatever's going to match up to your multiple different trailers, and pick something in between so it'll work for all of them. Each one is going to be adjustable so you'll be able to fine tune it to match up to all those trailers. The way we're going to adjust our ball, is we're going to have this pin here. On the other side we'll have a clip, so you can go ahead and pull out our clip. We're going to remove the pin, we'll be able to slide that ball platform up or down to match up to our trailer, to get the height or drop that we need.Then we simply replace the clip, and we're ready to go.

Now, adjusting the height is important to match up to our trailer, but if we have a different coupler size, that's going to bring up another problem. Well, the Flash series is going to have two different balls on there. We're going to have a 2", as well as a 2-5/16" ball, and they're both going to be attached permanently to that ball platform, so we're not going to have to worry about carrying an extra bag, and having something else lying in our truck. We need to change out the ball, we can simply remove the pin, take the ball platform off, flip it over, and again find the appropriate rise or drop for our application, and then just put the pin and clip back.You'll notice it is going to have a really high polished look to it, almost a chrome finish. That's because it's going to be made out of an aircraft grade aluminum construction.

We're not going to have to worry about any weak points, because it's going to be made out of a solid piece, so we're not going to have any welds that potentially could break. A big benefit of an aluminum ball mount over the steel version, it is going to be a lot more lightweight, but still have all the same strength and durability the steel one is going to have. A lot of our customers are comparing some of the aluminum ball mounts to each other, and really they are going to be pretty comparable as far as the size, and different configurations that they're going to come in.The Flash E-series is going to have a leg up on the looks department, because it is going to be one of the only ones that has that super high mirror polish finish, and it's just going to complement a lot of the chrome on your vehicle, and look good on the back of it.All of our ball mounts that have a 2" shank are going to be a Class 4 rated, and the 2-1/2" shank is going to be a Class 5. So they're going to extra strong and be able to handle all those loads, but they're also going to be light in weight because they're made out of that aluminum. Each one of the balls is going to be a chrome-plated steel, so they're still going to have that really nice look to them, but they're going to have that durability to handle getting hooked up and unhooked all the time.You'll notice that we have our ball mount in a rise position.

If we needed to flip it over and put it in the drop position, it's a simple as pulling out the pin and clip, removing the entire assembly, and flipping it over. Then we can replace our pin and clip. I do want to mention that the pin and clip we're using is not included in the kit to secure it to the trailer hitch. However, there is a lockset available here at etrailer.com, that not only would secure it to the trailer hitch, but it also secures the ball platform to the mount itself.Since our ball mounts are going to have different sizes available, and it can be used in different configurations, you always want to double check the weight ratings. Once you figure out how much your trailer weighs, you always want to double check your hitch and your owner's manual and never exceed the lowest rating of all of them. Having the adjustability available with our ball mounts, switch out the balls, as well as the rise and drop, is a nice thing. But it doesn't do us any good if we don't know how to find the right rise and drop for our vehicle and trailer combination, so we'll show you how to do that.We'll start by removing our ball mount completely. You want to make sure that your tow vehicle, as well as your trailer, is on a nice, level ground so we can take a few measurements. We're going to start by measuring from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening. Our vehicle here is just about 17". Then we can move to our trailer, and you want to make sure that your trailer is nice and level also. We'll measure our trailer, and our trailer's right about 22-1/2". So there's about a 5-1/2" difference there. So we're going to want to go about 5, if not 6" of a rise, since our trailer coupler is higher than our truck.Let's take our ball mount, we're going to put it in the rise position since we're going to need that 5-1/2", 6" rise. We'll secure it into our hitch. Then we'll grab our ball platform, slide it over. We'll get it pretty close to where we need it, and we can secure it down and double check our measurements. We have our ball mount within that 1/2", so we can go and back up and hook up to our trailer, and hit the road. That'll finish up your look at the Fastway Flash E-series line of adjustable two-ball mounts.

Switch easily between trailers with this adjustable, solid aluminum ball mount. Go from a 8" drop to a 8" rise. Tow up to 12,000 lbs with the 2" ball and up to 18,000 lbs with the 2-5/16" ball. Hitch pin and clip sold separately.

- FA42-00-2825

Happy with the hitch but somewhat disappointed with the rust on the ball and pin. 98% of the time my hitch is stored in a Rubbermaid tub in the bed of the truck. I could only imagine how it would look if it was exposed to the weather daily. 769919

- FA42-00-2825

The stinger is well made, looks great, and very functional for my needs/truck. They delivered on time. Great products and customer service! 555850

- FA42-00-2825

Heavy duty, well built and super easy to adjust. Looks great! 543323

- FA42-00-2825

This is a great product - my second one. Nothing wrong with the first one, just needed a larger receiver size for my new 2018 Denali HD2500 - very high quality construction, beautiful mirror finish which looks more refined than a standard hitch for a high end truck. Will use this to pull my boat and my JD Tractor w/bush hog so I like the 18,000 lb rating. I have numerous trailers and with the adjustable slide ball mount I can set the perfect height for each within seconds - I purchased with the dual lockable pins which have a matching finish. Very pleased. 466904

- FA42-00-2825

I’m glad I went with the 8” drop model. It is the perfect fit for my stock 2017 Ram 3500 and 16’ flatbed trailer. The mount looks good, and is very robust. I would buy again. 522774

- FA42-00-2825

Looks great have not used it yet but I liked the feel of the product should be strong enough to pull the 15000 lb boat 471426

- FA42-00-2825

Excellent product ! It solved the problem of having multiple different hitches in my truck. Great looking, with a weight rating far greater than any other hitch I had. I'm giving my other hitches away now ! 395813

- FA42-00-2825

This is a great hitch, it has the weight carrying ability that I needed, and it's light weight!! This can also be considered 6 hitches in one, it has 2 different ball sizes, plus the height adjustability, Great Hitch!! 555389

Hitch has worked out great!! Heavy duty, always have the right height and ball size with me!

Great looking hitch. Fits under f350 rear seat 553472

- FA42-00-2825

Received 2 days after order. Very impressive looking. No welds. Just solid pieces of metal. Big and sturdy looking, but not overly bulky like other comparable hitches with 10k+ rating. Nice polished look matches well with chrome bumper. Was looking at several different options for hitch and very happy with decision so far. Have a 2" lifted ram 2500 and 8" drop gives 18.75" from top of ball to ground on lowest setting with truck unloaded. Have not towed with it yet so can not speak on that topic. Very happy thus far 462190

Like the first day great It looks the same nice and shining The only downside is that 2 times Some bad guys are trying to stolen From. Store parking lot

Needed the extra drop of this hitch for a couple different trailers. Used it for only three days in its lowest drop position to tow a single axle trailer that was by no means even heavily loaded. Then another day later I needed to tow a skid steer and needed to adjust the height of the hitch. The problem was that where the two components meet there was a bunch of rubbing and it mashed the aluminum. I couldn’t adjust the hitch up or down. I ended up having to use a hammer to get it to move. Not super impressed with this product to say the least. 444887

- FA42-00-2825

Purchased this hitch for a 2017 ram 3500. Truck has 1” lift in rear with 35x11.50x18 tires. Excellent adjustable drop hitch. The hitch is a stout piece of artwork. I’ve been using it to haul my motocross trailer and my jet boat. The easy height adjustment eliminates the need for multiple hitches. Only warning I have is for the married guy, The chicks dig it!! 584784

- FA42-00-2825

Purchased for my 2017 F-250 6.7l Fx4. 8" has perfect amount of drop and seems to be very heavy duty! I also purchased the lockable hitch pins which provides security from being stolen! Very happy with my purchase! 549713

- FA42-00-2825

I like the looks and the quality of this adjustable ball mount. Strong and light weight. What I don’t like about it is to flip it out of the way during non use, the only pin hole that can be used is the lowest one causing the lower ball to be too low hitting curbs and anything else while backing in to parking spaces. 499343

- FA42-00-2825

Great product looks well built had small ding on carrier otherwise looks beautiful using for boat trailer 803751

Product was delivered quickly and as advertised. Build quality seems excellent. 776176

- FA42-00-2825

Love the hitch. Tow my skid steer daily from job to job. Looks awesome and really functional. Only complaint is the set screw behind the balls comes loose and then the balls wobble ever so slightly. The screw won’t come out but it a little annoying s quick tightening and good as new.....for a bit anyway 765705

- FA42-00-2825

I have purchased several of these for different applications over the last 10 or 12 years , I have been very happy with them and will continue to use them in the future. 764462

- FA42-00-2825

Works great 749916

- FA42-00-2825

Awesome product. Light, super heavy duty, won’t rust. What more could you want. Also, a lot of time went into polishing this bad boy to a mirror finish. Very nice. Great specs (18k load) for such a light piece of gear. 747687

- FA42-00-2825

Very happy with the quality of the product my only complaint is I feel for the cost Keyed locking pins should have been included. 747585
