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 4 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.


With the 4 stacked receivers, not only do you have the ability to adjust the height of the included ball mount, but you also have the ability to add various other hitch-mounted accessories. Insert a bike rack or cargo carrier. Mount a spare tire carrier. Use a tow bar to flat tow your vehicle. Or just add a fun hitch cover.

Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable Two Ball Mount - 325-GH-224

Hello every body, this is Jeff Fetty etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at this Gen-Y Adjustable 2-ball Mount with a Pintle lock. Has a 5 inch drop or 5 inch rise. And it's for 2 inch Hitches. And it has a 16,000 pound gross towing rate capacity. Now, this is an Adjustable Ball mount.

That would let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The solid Shank portion right here is what will slide into your 2 inch hitch receiver on your vehicle. And then you will have your choice of either a 2 inch diameter ball or the larger 2-5/16 diameter ball which will provide a connection point for your trailer coupler. What's nice with this part is they actually include this Pintle lock accessory. And this is used when it is paired with larger 2-5/16 diameter ball.

This will provide a nice connection point for a lunette ring coupler on your trailer. If you are not familiar with the lunette ring couplers a lot of the heavy duty trailers use a large lunette ring, which is just a round ring. That's on the front of the trailer for connection and that ring will drop over the ball and they keep it from coming off the ball. You can use this Pintle lock which they include. And the way you use that, let me just show you.

We will take our clip out, take our pin out and then you can see we'll slide that back out of the way. And then what you'll do is go ahead and hook the hook up to your lunette ring coupler. You'll just drop it over here. Once it's dropped over there then what you will do, is go ahead and just slide this over the Laurent ring itself. Once you get that slid over there, line your hole up put your pin back through, go ahead and clip it in place.

And just like that, it'll lock that plate over the lunette ring to keep it from coming detached. So it's a nice accessory to have. Now, if you're not gonna use it all that much on a Laurent ring couple, which you can do. You can remove it totally if you want, but if you wanna leave it handy, there's a second hole that you can just slide all the way back, put the pin through and then it will hold it in the closed position and out of the way, so then you can use this for a regular trailer coupler. You see on the front, it has the four stack 2 inches receivers that will accept the included Ball Mount and this Pintle lock accessory, as well as other hitch mounted accessories, comes with the 2-5/8 inch diameter stainless steel pins and clips. Those are included to secure the ball Mount to the Shank and the Pintle lock accessory to the Shank. The next thing I do wanna mention is on these clips. They are really nice, they normal clips and pins. They will just be straight. And when you try to put them in sometimes they are hard to get pushed in or hard to remove but with these it's pretty nice. They have a twist design. You can see one of the ends is bent. So to get it off, all you have to do is twist it and it comes right out. And then you can slide your pin out. When you go to install it, all you have to do is put it in there to like that, push it. And then as you push it forward it'll twist on and lock into place. So this clip is really nice to use because it's simple. You can see it will give you adjustable Heights. This will let you tow trailers of different Heights with the same vehicle. Works well if you have a lifted truck. Basically this ball mount here can be lowered or raised to match your application. Now they give you a maximum drop. In other words, if you install it like this and then you put your ball mount in the lowest receiver down here that maximum drop will be 5 inches. If you flip this over 180 degrees and put it in the maximum rise position, and then put your ball on in the highest receiver and operating at the rise position it'll get your maximum rise of 5 inches. Just to show you how to adjust that again take your clip off, take your pin off and then your ball mount. You can just slide it right out, just like that. And then if you wanna flip it over a 180 degrees to use the smaller 2 inch ball, you can do that. Or you can also put it up or down in whatever receiver size you need for your application. Once you choose the right one, just line your hole up put your pin all the way through. And then again use the twist clip to clip it right into place. You are ready to go. This is a heavy duty steel construction. They do use a zinc primer and then they coat it with a durable silver vein epoxy powder coat, to resist corrosion. Now, when you do install this into your hitch receiver you can see the two hitch pin holes here. You do have to secure with either a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock. Those are not included. We do sell them separately on our website. The size of these hitch pit holes is 5/8 of an inch. This is SAEJ684 certified. It is made in the USA. Application again, fits 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. Now the capacity of this will just depend on the size ball you use. So if you use the smaller 2 inch diameter ball gross towing, weight capacity, 12,000 pounds maximum tongue weight of 1500 pounds. If you switch it around and use the larger 2-5/16 ball, that will get you a gross towing weight of 16,000 pounds, maximum tongue weight of 2000 pounds. And then one last thing I do would've mentioned is this ball Mount does have many different dimensions to it. So what I would recommend is for you to go to our product page for this part number and we'll have this Shank displayed and it will have all the dimensions put on it. So that we can verify any dimension that may be needed for your application. But that should do it for the review on the gen Y adjustable, 2 ball Mount with the pintle lock, has a 5 inch drop or 5 inch rise for a 2 inch hitch and has a 16,000 pound gross towing weight capacity..

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount w Lock in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I Think this is the only product on the market that allows for multiple receivers that also has engineered ratings that nearly matches your tow vehicle. I can't wait to use it on vacation for the kayak trailer and the bike rack.

Super stout, just what I needed. Towed a car hauler with a big industrial compressor on it with my tall hitch receiver and it helped it tow level and smooth!

I used adjustable ball mount to haul a tow dolly and also carry a hitch haul with wood. It worked great.

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount w Lock in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I just installed the Gen-Y and its way better than my last one (much more stout). I put it on a 2011 f350 with a leveling kit on 35s and Im defiantly glad that I got one with the 7 inch drop. Im also going to be putting it on a Kubota M-120 to pull a 12ft box scraper.

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount w Lock in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This is a very functional and versatile hitch. Incidentally, the extended horizontal length allows me to drop my tailgate and not hit my trailer jack. The only theoretical downside is the increased torque on the receiver because of the horizontal extension inherent with the hitch design, as well as the massive weight. these issues do not seem to be functionally relevant however. Pintle may come in handy someday. I would buy again.

After a year of hard use, 10 cross country trips from coast to coast towing everything from 40ft TT's to 16ft cargo haulers I am highly impressed and glad I purchased this hitch. I have had no failure from sheering pins, no sag or drooping at all. Handle the weight like a champ.

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount w Lock in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Seems like it is very sturdy use to have a Ford with 3” shank with 21,000 lbs. towing capacity but my new Ram only has the 2.5” shank so I’m glad I found this because it’s rated for 21,000 lbs also




by:

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount w Lock in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


No doubt it's "mega duty". Thing weighs 54 lbs. I don't know if its worth the money but I'd say its probably the best hitch you could get!
