Multiple Stacked Receivers for Easy Adjustment

stacked receivers

This unique mount from Gen-Y Hitch includes a ball mount that can be easily positioned in one of the 3 stacked receivers that sits along the vertical shank of the unit. This dual-ball mount lets you tow a trailer with a 2" ball coupler or a 2-5/16" ball coupler.


pintle hitch

Also included is a pintle lock, which can be inserted into the receiver directly above the ball mount to create a pintle hitch for hooking up a trailer with a lunette ring. Unlike other adjustable pintle hooks on the market, there are no nuts and bolts to remove and retorque when you change the positioning of this hitch. Just move the ball mount and pintle lock up or down to get the proper height and secure them in place with the included pins.

Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable 2 Ball Mount - 325-GH-1623

Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at the Gen-Y adjustable two-ball mount with the pintle lock. Has a six inch drop or rise and this is for a 2 1/2 inch hitch. Has a 32,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now, this is an adjustable ball mount that'll let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle.

This shank portion right here is what'll slide into your 2 1/2 inch hitch receiver on your vehicle. And then up front, you'll have a choice of either a 2 5/16 diameter ball or a two inch diameter ball to provide the connection points for your trailer coupler. Now, this part here also includes this pintle lock accessory. When this is paired with the larger 2 5/16 ball, it'll provide a nice connection point for a lunette ring coupler. Some of your heavy-duty trailers have a lunette ring on the front.

And basically, the lunette ring is just a large ring that'll drop over the ball. Want to pop up an insert to show you what we're talking about. If you look at the insert, you can see the lunette ring over the ball and then this accessory, the lock, going over it. And the idea is it keeps that ring from coming off of the ball, so this will hold it in place. And all you have to do to use that is just take out your pin and clip, push it out of the way.

Go ahead and drop your lunette ring hook up over the ball. Once it gets over there, slide the accessory back over the lunette ring. Take your pin, slide it through there, clip it into place, and that'll lock that accessory over the lunette ring to keep it from coming off the ball. Now, if you're not hooking up to a lunette ring and you just wanna use it on a regular coupler, you just take the pin and clip, slide this back. There's a second hole for storage.

Put the pin and clip back in. And then it'll hold the lock accessories away from it and you can use this for a regular coupler. Now, the capacity on this ball mount is gonna be determined by the ball size you use. If you use the larger 2 5/16 diameter ball, it's gonna get you a gross towing weight capacity of 32,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight capacity of 3,500 pounds. If you use the smaller two inch ball, it's gonna get you a gross towing weight capacity of 16,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight of 1,500 pounds. Now, you can see this shank has the three stacked 2 1/2 inch receivers. These will accept the included ball mount and pintle lock as well as other hitch mounted accessories. Does come with the two 3/4 inch diameter stainless steel pins and clips and that's to secure the ball mount to the shank, the pintle lock to the shank or any other accessory. And what's nice on these, I wanted to show you a really unique feature I really like is this twist design to the clip. Most of your clips are just straight and when you try to put them on, it's hard to do or take them off, which this one, all you have to do is twist it. And when you twist it, it comes right off. Slide your pin out. When you go to install it, just push it. And when you push it, it'll twist into place and lock it in there. Makes it a real easy to remove the clips or install it. Does give you adjustable height. You can see it has the three stacked 2 1/2 inch receivers. This adjustable height will let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. Works well if you have a lifted truck. Basically, this ball mount can be lowered or raised to match your application. Now, if you use the ball mount in the lowest position here, it'll get you a maximum drop of six inches. If you flip the shank over into the rise position and put the ball mount in the highest position, it'll get you a maximum rise of six inches. And just to show you how you do that, if you go pull the clip out, pull your pin out. And then you can see, you can slide your ball mount out. I'm gonna just turn it over and use the two inch ball. And again, you could put it in any receiver opening. I'm just gonna go back in the middle again. Slide it in. Once you get it in correctly, put the pin back through, twist the clip on, and you're ready to go now with a two inch ball. Very easy to do. This is a heavy-duty steel construction. Has a zinc primer and a black powder coat on the two-ball mount and the pintle lock accessory. The shank has a nice primer with a durable silver vein epoxy powder coat on it to resist corrosion. Now, when you do slide this into your hitch receiver, it will require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock for securing it to the hitch receiver. Those items are not included. We do sell those separately on our website. And it does give you two different size hitch pin holes to use, either the smaller 5/8 inch diameter, or the larger 3/4 inch diameter. This part is SAE J684 certified. It is made in the USA. Few specs, again, this fits into a 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver. And one last note I do wanna mention is this ball mount does have many different dimensions to it. So, I do recommend for you to go to the product page of this part to verify any dimension that may be needed for your application. Basically, we have a picture of this with all the dimensions listed. But that should do it for the review on this Gen-Y adjustable two-ball mount with the pintle lock and a six inch drop or rise for a 2 1/2 inch hitch..

This hitch has been used with both balls in every height position. Hitch is durable and high quality. It has not been off my truck since I purchased it and is used frequently to tow 10-20K trailers.




by:

So far so good not rusty yet … I own 2 of them very solid and feels just right




by:

I have been pulling this trailer daily for 19 years. Have been through a few hitches in that time. They all seem to bend over time. This one has just been installed and I must say it is the best quality heavy duty hitch I have ever purchased. Can't wait to pull with it...




by:

the product looks great. Everything was as described and it looks very durable. The color looks better in person than in the photos.




by:

Sturdy, well built. But it rusts!! All that money and it rusted within months. I’ve had a B&W for 10+ years and it’s as shiny as the first day.




by:

I think all trailer hitches should be as strong as this one.




by:

Nice quality & design - good fit - heavy duty - prompt delivery - easy return policy (wrong one - my fault) Knowledgeable sales personnel that make the transaction easy




by:

Quick Delivery and great communications all along the way. I have purchased from them before and they always have been awesome to work with.

Review from a similar Mega Drop Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I have both ball and pintle hitch Trailers. That is why I bought this hitch. The hitch it self is well built but the Paint job is not that great . I have had it a year and most of the paint on the Shank ( another reason I bought it for the 3" shank to fit my receiver on my ford Superduty) is pretty much gone. The hitch it self still clanks around in the receiver .I wish there was an adaptor to fit over the Larger ball so that my pintle eye would not move around so much.


Comments
For the finish I can only suggest to use sand paper lightly to remove the rust and then touch it up with a rust resistant paint. With regard to the rattle, when I first read over the review, I was thinking it was the ball mount in the receiver that was loosening up versus the ball attachment into the ball mount. I reached out to the manufacturer however I was not able to see a ready made solution to tighten that up.

Review from a similar Mega Drop Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great product. Always the best. This is the 3rd one we have purchased for our heavy trucks. My hitch came all scratched and banged up from poor shipping. Not a positive for a $xxx hitch. Will be looking for a different distributer than etrailer in the future for these products. Great product, 5/5, however etrailer did no favors on this product.


Comments
I see that your hitch has received some scratches on it due to shipping. This does tend to happen and when it does, we recommend using a Rust-oleum type paint to cover up any scratches and prevent corrosion in the future during use. I have a link below for your reference.

Review from a similar Mega Drop Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great product. Very stout, but also very heavy. Only complaint is the weight, particularly because I am not a full time trailer “tower” so I install/remove frequently. Definitely peace of mind in terms of not having to worry about ball mount issues with 2500#+ tongue weight.

Review from a similar Mega Drop Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Been towing with this hitch for a year now. It’s the best hitch I’ve ever owned. The longest I’ve ever kept the same hitch. Easy to switch heights, strength, it’s bulletproof. I’ve dropped a loaded dump trailer onto the ball after not getting it lined up correctly. The weight would have bent any other hitch. This Gen-Y laughed at it.

well built and easy to change heights for different trailers. eliminated a lot of play from reducing down to use 2" hitches in the 3" receiver

Review from a similar Mega Drop Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This review is for the install only, as i have not towed with the hitch yet...
Well, getting the hitch into the receiver was a major pain in the rear. So much powder coating made it very difficult to insert. I hade to use a 5000lbs tie down ratchet, and it took about 45 minutes to complete the task. Not happy with that portion at all.
