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   (497 Customer Reviews)

Switch easily between trailers with this adjustable, solid steel ball mount. Go from a 10" drop to an 11" rise. Tow up to 12,000 lbs with either the 2" or 2-5/16" ball. Forged steel shank is powder coated for corrosion resistance.

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.



by:

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



by:

Heavy duty built and the cheapest price on the market. Highly recommend this adjustable hitch.

Flawlessly! This hitch stays in all of time. It has even prevented damage to my pickup after being rear ended by a car and didnt damage the hitch either. I would recommend this hitch to anyone but I would like to have an option for 1-78 ball.

Fastway no longer has a dual ball mount with a 1-7/8" ball option or a way to change the ball out. The closest option we have is the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS10050B which is designed with a tri-ball design including the 1-7/8" ball and has a 9" drop and 9-1/2" rise.


by:

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.

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

Perfect for towing different trailers, easy changeover

Perfect for hooking up different trailers to my vehicle, either by height or by trailer ball size



by:

This product is still working great and I continue to enjoy the convenience of not having to store multiple size hitches.



by:

Love this hitch! It’s made well, it’s fast and easy to change ball sizes and height and doesn’t require any tools. I’ve been using it to pull a small travel trailer and a 20’ 10,000lb flatbed trailer.



by:

The set screw that holds the dual ball assembly in will not stay tight, no matter how much lock tite you use, so i had to weld it in. Because I can weld i did but others would have to find a shop to do it and that would not be cheap. Other than the set screw problem I would have given 5 star. I do like it and would buy again.

I reached out to the manufacturer about the movement in the ball mount hitch ball. With a double ball adjustable ball mount the hitch balls are not tightened down by a hitch ball nut. They have a bolt that goes through the middle of the double ball. Because of the different design you could see some movement in the hitch ball. This is normal on all double ball draw bars.



by:

It's a great strong hitch for what I do. I do landscaping on the side and I haven't had a single problem with it for the last year. If something happened to this hitch I'd definitely buy it again. It's been well worth the purchase!

Ive not had any issues with it and its been a great product!

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.



by:

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.



by:

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!!



by:

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.



by:

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.


by:

I like the transition ball from a 2 inch to the 2 5/8 I think that's wht the balls are. Anyways I have a 2500 cummins that has 37s and a 8 inch lift. I pull my 30 ft boat and trailer weighing 8500 pds and it has no problem. I pull 40 ft horse trailers and also a 44ft travel trailer and no problem.



by:

Looks great.. Glad I waited... Came one day early.

Looks like I'll finally be able to haul my trailer level for a change. Looks great and was shipped exactly as they said they would. Thank you.

Still pulling its load!!!



by:

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.



by:

The etrailer staff were very efficient, and I received my 10" drop down hitch within a few days of placing the order. I highly recommend doing business with etrailer !!



by:

Very good solid hitch,fast service,felt very safe hooking on to my horse trailer and going down the road. Nothing light duty with this hitch or pin's



by:

Thanks



by:

The long extension is fantastic. Works great with my 2002 Yukon. I needed a 6 inch riser to get my trailer level for better towing. I regularly swap it to different heights as I own several vehicles with various ride heights. Super happy with it.



by:

Drop down hitch was perfect. easily adjustable for my two different trailers including ball size. It arrived Friday and I already put it to use. I'll be ordering from etrailer in the future.



by:

I like the hitch. I pull several different trailers, and I can adjust my hitch to tow the trailer in a fairly level position.



by:

My experience with etrailer was awesome all away around . Shipping was super fast only took 3 days and that was all the way from the East coast . This product is solid and fits snug into my reciever there is no excessive slop or play . Definitely more than what I need as far as the 12,000 tow rating goes and gives me the extra confidence for all my towing needs and ensures my horses are safe when going down the road in my 9,000lb 3 horse bumper pull .

  • 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...

  • What Are The Dimensions of the Vertical Holes on the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount?
    The Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5900 uses a 5/8" diameter pin to secure the ball mount to the adjustable shank. These holes are spread 1" on center vertically along the shank. As these do not match the information you sent if you can tell me what parts you have I can determine if there is a system which will fit your current ball you want to also use.

  • Can Shank of Flash Solid Steel Adjustable Ball Mount be Used with Weight Distribution
    A weight distribution system head would not be able to attach to the shank of the Fastway part # FA49-00-5900 but since this is capable of 10 inches of drop it would work great on a truck with a 6 inch lift.

  • Distance From Pin Hole to Ball Center on Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount FA49-00-5900
    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.

  • Compatibility Of Flash Steel Adjustable Ball Mount With UFP A-160 Surge Coupler On Boat Trailer
    Yes, the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5900 will have enough clearance for the UFP A-160 surge coupler on your new boat trailer. While the head of this surge coupler does look longer than others, the ball sleeve is in the very front of the head. I recommend using the Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # FA86-00-4200 to secure the hitch and adjustable ball to your tow vehicle. This will help prevent someone from stealing this ball mount and allow you to keep it...

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...

So if you measure from the pin hole of your hitch out to the furthest point out on the rear bumper and it's less than 6 inches this will fit without hitting it.

  • How Much Drop Is Needed to Tow a Trailer With a 19 Ram 1500 That Has a 6 Lift?
    Choosing the correct amount of drop for your ball mount will depend on a few things. First, with the tow vehicle parked on level ground, you will need to measure from the ground to the top of your hitch receiver opening. Next, with the trailer level, measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. You will then subtract the coupler measurement from the hitch measurement. This will get you the amount of drop needed to tow the trailer as level as possible. With all that being said,...
