This Fastway Flash Strong Series ball mount offers exceptional durability and strength while maintaining a high-quality appearance. Its solid forged steel construction is durable and sturdy enough to last for years to come. With a rust-resistant glossy 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 included pins so that you are able to slide the ball platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Re-insert the pins once you have found the correct height. Switching the hitch ball is just as easy. Simply remove the pins 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 pins and clips.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (488 Customer Reviews)

Switch easily between trailers with this adjustable, solid steel ball mount. Go from a 6" drop to a 7" rise. Tow up to 8,000 lbs (2" ball) or 12,000 lbs (2-5/16" ball). Forged steel shank is powder coated for corrosion resistance.


Nice hitch, easy to adjust and change ball size. This replace a hitch that used a key to remove or adjust height. Key no longer worked, had to destroy the hitch to remove.


Etrailer never fails to deliver on-time quality products


Quality ball hitch I use to pull various trailers. I am able to get my trailers level after installing a small lift on my truck.

Roger T.


No complaints on this great hitch. It will handle most jobs and its interchangeable between vehicles as its adjustability is outstanding. Its a solid hitch and I use a locking pin with mine because Id like to keep it as long as possible.


Bought this to use behind my class A motorhome to pull a dolly with my van on. Works great, good construction for the price. I would definitely recommend someone to buy it.


Nice hitch. The two ball gives you options for size. Sturdy and works like it should.


When reviewing, I try to review as to what was described and what I expected. People that compare one product to another will usually find disappointment.
With that being said, this exceeded my expectations. The build quality of this is great. It is the heaviest receiver I have personally lifted which tells me it is built with some strong, heavy metal. The finish is glossy and smooth with no burs to snag your hands.
The balls are integrated into the unit which seems to make this feel more solid and you don't have to worry about a crescent wrench to tighten or loosen them.
The adjustability of this unit is easy, by pulling the two pins, it can be moved up and down to the height described.
I personally bought this unit for my 2018 Ford F150 Supercrew 4x4 5.5' bed 3.5L ecoboost w/3.55 gears and max tow pkg. I can safely tow 12,800 lbs. with my truck and so this unit will be perfect for towing 10,000 lbs. since it is rated for 12k. I plan to use this to tow a 3k lbs dump trailer with a 7k lb load for a total of 10k lbs.

I feel this unit is the best receiver you can buy for the money. Yes there are other brands that market to different people and there are diff features on other units that look neat. However, at the end of the day, all I needed was something to keep my trailer attached to my truck and this unit will do so at the lowest price available.

Hope this unbiased unpaid review gives you the information you need to make the right decision.



Now that it has been a year since I started using this, I can report it lives up to all my expectations. I have not had any problems thus far and would still recommend. I used this to haul 130 tons of gravel for a pad I build obviously 10-13k lbs at a time but multiple daily uses on all kind of terrains. I would buy this again if mine was lost or stolen. I realize there are other brands that have the big name, or fancy features, but if you want a functional heavy duty ball and hitch then this is the best for the money.


Had this for Ayr now and it's a very well made strong hitch. I pull a 20 foot cargo trailer with 2 Harleys and a RZR. We got about 30k miles on her with this much weight and looks like we just bought it.


Super great product. Built tough and solid, to last longer than the other junk I have had in the past. Great company to deal with, accidentally ordered the wrong side 2 1/2”, should have been 2”. No issues, called and got it swapped.


After 3 months. The ball is loose with no way to tighten it. I’ve resently sent in a question to the experts a etrailer. I’ll post there response. I wouldn’t recommend this hitch. Moving parts break under pressure. As for ask the experts. I’ll let u decide


Just received the hitch on Friday and it is even more heavy duty than I was expecting. I have not had a chance to put on the truck yet. Normal shipping only took 2 days for me which is outstanding.

Darin R.




Fantastic hitch for the price. Very solid. I use it to pull a dump trailer full of rocks
(About 4000 - 5000lbs at a time) with no problems at all. Easily compares to hitches twice its price.
Also when I ordered this hitch it was back ordered for several weeks. Etrailer sent me regular emails informing me of the status. They kept me informed the entire time.
Great customer service!


has held up well. I use the hitch in the elevated position as my boat trailer wouldn't clear the break in elevation of my driveway.

Arnold S.


its been a year and the hitch is functioning well. At 7 inches of lift, it gave me enough lift to maneuver my 30 ft boat trailer up my driveway without bottoming out. good product.


Works Great


Arrived on time !! Free shipping helps make these products affordable! No damage to box and hitch was also unharmed. Simple to assemble, but clear instructions were included in the box. Best product that I could find for the price that could handle my weight requirements.
Repeat etrailer customer!


Trailer hitch is heavy duty and delivered exactly what I expected.


Excellent product and price. Well made hitch,
completely satisfied with the etrailer experience, our go to hitch store from now on.


the hitch arrived in just 3 days. Was exactly what pictures showed. Made it very easy to get setup to tow a Uhaul trailer from our Ford F-150


I am truly impressed with this product. It was packaged well by the manufacturer and upon inspection, I think this was a great choice for my specific needs. I am sure we will get years of use pulling the boat and the horse trailer using this item. Only time will tell, but i am confident it will hold up well.


This hitch is heavy duty and the adjustability allows you to use with multiple trailers.


Super high quality, super heavy duty. Now I tow with confidence and flexibility.


Great customer service when I called to ask questions. A plus


Extremely satisfied with this product. I have used it to pull my boat for over a year now, and has successfully got the job done with no issues.


Great company. Awesome and easy ordering. Great pricing. And to top it off from the minute I ordered they kept me inform about shipping until I received my products.

Shawn H.


It is very well constructed and looks great, thank you for your quality and service.


Product was just as advertised and shipped same day as ordered

  • Is There a Fixed Ball Mount with 6 Rise Rated Over 5,000 Lbs
    I do have an option for you but you won't find a fixed ball mount with 6" rise rated for 6,000 lbs. The extension is too great to warrant that capacity so your only option would be an adjustable ball mount like the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount part # FA49-00-5600. I have attached a full list of options below.

  • What Increments Of Adjustment Does The Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount FA49-00-5600 Have?
    The Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5600 has a maximum rise of 7". The adjustment holes are located 1" on center so you will be able to position the ball in a 7", 6", 5", 4", 3", 2", and 1" rise. It can also be positioned in a 0", 1", 2", 3", 4", 5", and 6" drop. The Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # FA86-00-4200 will allow you to secure the ball mount to your vehicle if you plan on leaving it on when not in use.

  • Does the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Come With a 1-7/8" and 2" Hitch Ball
    The Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount part # FA49-00-5600 only comes with a 2" and 2-5/16" hitch ball combo. That said, we do have a similar ball mount option with a 1-7/8" and 2" hitch ball combo, the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount Kit part # AM3411. This ball mount is aluminum so it will be much lighter. I have attached a review video I did below.

  • Availability of Cast Adjustable Ball Mount for 2 Inch Receiveer
    The Curt # C45900 adjustable ball mount features a shank that's constructed of 2 inch square steel bar stock, that's fully gusseted and welded to the channel mount, just like what you show in the photo you provided. If you'd prefer something that is constructed of cast steel, I'd recommend the Fastway # FA49-00-5600 which also provides a 2 and a 2-5/16 inch ball.

  • How are Hitch Balls Secured to Mount on Flash Solid Steel Adjustable Ball Mount
    I reached out to the manufacturer who said the hitch balls on the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable Ball Mounts are a solid piece that has a bolt running through it inside the mount. What this means is that there is zero chance of it coming apart while you are towing your trailer. Simply abide by the capacities of the hitch and it is extremely safe. There are a number of Flash Solid Steel Ball Mounts, each of which comes with a 2" and 2-51/6" hitch balls and the correct one for your needs will...

  • Replacement Ball Mount Section for Weight Distribution Shank
    For that type of shank you're going to need a weight distribution hitch head and for that I recommend the Replacement Weight Distribution Bolt-Together Round Bar Head # PS58442 because it comes with a hitch ball as well as all of the hardware you need to mount it to the shank you currently have. If you also wanted to utilize the friction sway control hitch ball I recommend picking up the Curt System # 17200 to do so. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

  • Will Bolt Hitch Lock Fit Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5600
    We do have BOLT hitch locks that would lock the shank of the Fastway Weight Distribution Head part # FA49-00-5600 that you mentioned. For that you'd want the part # BL7018447 for a Ford key, part # BL7023582 for a center cut GM key etc. If you have a different key check out the link I attached that shows all of the Bolt hitch locks we carry.

  • Carrying Kayaks On A 2026 Nissan Rogue
    Anytime you add a roof rack or roof rack accessory to your vehicle, you reduce the weight that you can carry. The weight limit on your 2016 Nissan Rogue is 100lbs. This means the weight of your roof rack, roof rack accessories, and the items you are carrying on the roof, when totaled, cannot weigh more than 100lbs. You will not be able to carry two kayaks with a load assisted kayak carrier, just one. If you want to carry 2 kayaks you will have to get a hitch receiver installed and carry...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch w/ 6 Inch Drop For 12,000 lb Trailer
    By torsion hitch and torsion bars, I believe you are referring to a weight distribution hitch, and there is an option for one that will allow a 6 inch drop. So long as your 12,000 lb trailer's total tongue weight - the tongue weight of your fully loaded trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your truck - is no more than 1,500 lbs, you can use one of the following weight distribution hitches, depending on if you want sway control or not: - Reese Weight Distribution...
