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.

Too much play in this hitch... it works fine when driving at speed but it clunks a lot and the little bit of play allows the trailer to jar my truck. A rigid drop hitch would be preferable.


Comments
Thank you for your review. You can use an anti-rattle device at the start of the hitch, but no other devices will fit at the joints of the ball mount. Part # RM-061

This hitch solved my problem of lowering the height from my Tahoe to pull a trailer for my side by side. Excellent construction and quality. Highly recommend this hitch and company!!

Delightful find This is a great product at a great price. Hopefully you find this item before purchasing a similar product at a much higher price.

Should be the last hitch I need to buy, is rated for close to what a 2020 F150 with max tow package can haul, in pic mine is at 17.5 inches high which levels my trailers, I got the 10 inch drop but the 6 in one would have worked. Get the 6 in one for this truck if you are worried about it dragging off road. I got the 10 in to cover all future needs with any truck I may tow with

I bought this drop down to tow my enclosed trailer behind my Humvee. Because of the nearly two foot ground clearance I wanted a sturdy hitch but still tow a level trailer. This fit the bill 100%. I was not disappointed in this unit. First of all it’s heavy. And that’s a good thing in my mind. Secondly it fit like a glove. Great powder coating and really sweet hardware. Every inch of this hitch is top quality. You can’t go wrong with the price or with etrailer. Best customer service and quick shipping. I highly recommend you chose this hitch if you need a substantial drop and DON’T buy from anywhere but etrailer.

Never had a bad experience with etrailer. Don’t forget to order the locking hitch pins like I did. If you pull different trailers this hitch is very handy.

Exactly what I needed to tow my CJ5 behind my RV. Needed the 9" rise. And the adjustability let's me quickly switch to the motorcycle trailer. 2" rise.

Super heavy duty and works well for my F150 with a 6” lift and 35” tires. I have bottomed it out when the bed is loaded down and I’m driving on a pot holed dirt road. Zero damage though.

Still works great. I’ve knocked of some of the paint from use but only really minimal rust.

Thanks for your review. To help extend the life of your ball mount cover any bare metal with anti-corrosion spray paint.

Whenever I need something for one of my trailers, I go to etrailer.com to find out what’s available at a good price. I needed a trailer hitch that provided significant rise. Sure enough etrailer had all sorts of options for me.. my boat trailer is towed by several trucks and the trailer was bottoming out. I bought a hitch that provides The adjustability up to 10 inches of rise. While I haven’t used it yet, the hitch looks very substantial and it will provide the adjustability I was looking for. Very satisfied with my purchase.

Well made. I wish I could take the balks off. The ball on the bottom scrapes when I go over a low dip

Purchased this ball hitch for my 2018 Ram Power Wagon. Was looking for a ball hitch with a drop so a can haul any of the three trailers I own. This hitch is well made and looks like it will last a long time. It comes with a 2" and 2 5/16" ball. The only down side is one of the trailers I own has a 1 7/8" receiver. I would have liked to find a ball that mounds on this hitch that size. Maybe they make one. I just haven't found it yet. Shipping time was great. I would recommend this hitch to anyone looking for a solid ball mount with a decent drop to keep your trailers level. Makes all the difference in the world towing when the trailer is hitched at the right height.

Ask the Experts about this Fastway Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • 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...

    I do have an options for you but the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount part # FA49-00-5900 measures 3-3/4" from the hitch pin hole to upright portion of the ball mount so it will not clear the bumper of the Chrysler Town and Country. These measurements can be found in the video of the Flash Solid Adjustable ball mount that I have attached.

  • Will the Flash 10" Drop Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Work With Weight Distribution
    It sounds like you need a longer shank for a weight distribution system and if that is the case we have plenty of options. The Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount part # FA49-00-5900 however won't work, instead I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank part # FA92-02-4315 which provides up to a 7-1/2" drop.

  • Can Shank From Fastway FA49-00-5900 Adjustable Ball Mount Be Used with a Weight Distribution Hitch
    Weight distribution shanks offered from Curt, Reese, Equal-i-zer, Fastway etc will typically be interchangeable. However, the shank used on the # FA49-00-5900 adjustable ball mount isn't designed for use as a weight distribution shank. Not only will a weight distribution shank need to deal with the trailer tongue weight but also the forces exerted by the weight distributing spring bars with actually exert a huge amount of force. Therefore, you wouldn't want to use anything that hadn't been...

  • How is Rise Defined with a Ball Mount
    In regards to ball mounts such as the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5900, rise is the distance from the top of the shank to the top of the ball mount platform when oriented for rise (please see accompanying photos). The Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount has a maximum rise of 11 inches, as you said, and maximum drop of 10 inches.

    The distance from the hitch pin hole of the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable Ball Mount # FA49-00-5900 to the center of the hitch ball is 9 inches. This is a pretty standard length so I'd assume it's probably pretty close to what you have on your Curt ball mount.

  • Recommended Ball Mount with 10 Inch Rise for a 2014 Honda Odyssey
    With the hitch on your 2014 Honda Odyssey being recessed about 4 3/4 on the etrailer.com # e98862, as an example, I suggest going with the Convert-A-Ball # AMSC12. This will have 10 3/4 inches of rise, 7,000 pounds of capacity, and will clear your bumper. As a side note, you do have about 2 inches up or down to still technically be level.

  • How to Compensate for Trailer Coupler Much Shorter Than Tow Vehicle's Receiver
    It sounds like you're trying to make sure that your trailer is towed level, which is always important for safety. However, by the looks of that trailer, the fenders you've got on there are going to really limit the size tire you can put on there. You normally want to leave at least 3" between the top of the tire and the fender so that you don't damage the tires when going over any bumps or anything, so I'm not sure that adding a larger tire is going to be the best solution.
