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.

With the 3 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-523

Hello everybody, this Jeff at Today we're gonna take a look at this Gen-Y adjustable two-ball mount with the pintle lock, has a five inch drop or rise, and it's for a two inch hitch that has a 16,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now this is an adjustable ball mount, will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The solid shank right here is what'll slide into your two inch hitch receiver on your vehicle, and an up front, you have either a choice of a two and five 16th diameter hitch ball. Or if you flip it over a two inch diameter hitch ball, these balls will provide the connection points for your trailer coupler. And what's nice about this part number, it also includes this pintle lock accessory.

When this is paired with the larger two and five 16th ball, it'll provide a nice connection point for a lunette ring coupler. And if you're not familiar with the lunette ring coupler, basically what that is, is some of your larger heavy duty trailers will have a large lunette ring on the front as the coupler, and it's designed to drop over the ball. And what this part does, let me just show you here. We're gonna pop out the clip and the pin, and you'll see this pintle lock accessory. What that does, you can slide it back, and then when you hook up to a lunette ring coupler that lunette ring will drop down over the ball and to keep it from coming detached, you just slide this over the lunette ring, once it's installed, once that slides over, just put your pin back in, take your clip, clip it into place and just like that, it'll lock it, and it'll keep that lunette ring from coming off the ball.

And if you're not using it with lunette ring, you can also just, this pintle lock has two poles in it, you can slide it back into the shank, put it through the, close the first hole, clip it and then that'll lock it in the closed position, then that way you can use it with a normal trailer coupler. If you notice on this, it has three stacked, two inch receivers and this will accept the included ball mount and pintle lock accessory, as well as other hitch mount accessories. Does come with these two, five, eight inch diameter stainless steel pins and clips. These are included to secure the ball mount to the shank and the pintle lock to the shank. And one of the things I wanted to talk about, it's pretty neat is this clip here.

Most clips are just straight and they're sometimes hard to get on. This is a twist clip, which is a nice unique design. Basically you can see you just twist the clip and it's easy to remove, slide your pin out, and when you slide it back in to install, it's the same way. Just push it, and as you push it forward, it'll twist and lock into place. So it makes it a lot easier instead of lots of times you're fighting trying to push that clip in, this will make it real easy to put it in or to take it out.

Now, this does offer the adjustable height which will let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. Works well if you have a lifted truck, the ball mount itself can be lowered or raised to match your application. And this will give you, if you install it this way in the matte drop position. And if you put the ball mount in the lowest position, that'll get you a maximum drop of five inches. If you put this shank in the rise position, meaning it's flipped over and then you slide it in, and then put the ball mount at the highest position, it'll get you a maximum rise of five inches. And just to show you how that ball, you can adjust same way you take your clip out, take your pin out, and then what you can do, let's just put these over here. Then you can slide your ball mount out. If you wanna use the smaller two inch ball, just flip it over, rotate it back in, and now you got your two inch ball. And as we mentioned, you can put it in whatever height you need for whatever your application is. So what I'm gonna do is just slip it back into the middle section, line the hole up, take our pin, slide it through. Take our twist clip, push it right on, it locks into place, and now you're ready to go, simple as that. This is a heavy duty steel construction, uses a zinc primer and it's coated with a durable silver rain epoxy powder coat to resist corrosion. Now, when you do install this into your hitch, it will require hitch pining clip or a hitch lock for securing to the hitch receiver. Now, those are not included, we do sell those supplement on our website and basically you can see the two-hitch pin holes right here, they have a diameter of five eights of an inch. This is SAE J 684 certified, it is made in the USA. Application again, is two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers. Now the weight capacity will depend on the ball size you use. So if you use the smaller two inch ball, it's gonna give you a gross towing weight capacity of 12,000 pounds, maximum tongue weight of 1500 pounds. If you flip it over and use the larger two and five 16th diameter ball, it'll get you a max gross towing weight of 16,000 pounds and a max tongue weight of 2000 pounds. One last thing I do wanna mention, this ball mount does have many different dimensions to it. So what I do recommend for you to do is go to the product page, we'll have a picture of this and it'll show all the dimensions on it and it'll let you verify any dimension that may be needed for your application. But that should do it for the review on the Gen-Y adjustable two-ball mount with the pintle lock and the five inch drop or rise for a two inch hitch, has a 16,000 pound gross towing weight capacity..

  • Recommended 2-5/16" Pintle Hook and Ball Combo for 2" Hitch with Drop
    I do have an option for you but in order to get a pintle hook and hitch ball combo with a drop, you'll need to go adjustable. The Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers part # 325-GH-523 has everything you need (2-5/16" Hitch Ball, 2" Hitch, 16K Capacity, 5" Drop) and works great with heavy duty towing setups.

  • Alternative Hitch Receiver to the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210
    I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately we do not have any Multipurpose Ball Mounts like the Curt # D210 that feature a 4" drop. Instead what you can use is a Gen-Y adjustable ball mount like part # 325-GH-523 which has a 5" drop /rise and a 16K weight rating. If you are within 1" of the rise/drop needed for your towing application then you can use the ball mount. This means that you can use the included ball mount in the lowest position thich frees up the top receiver opening...

  • Trailer hitch riser
    An adjustable ball mount like the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-523 will give you the tongue weight you are looking for but only available rise is 2-1/2" or 5". I realize not exactly what you are looking for but is closest option we have at the moment.

  • Can Gen-Y Phantom Adjustable 2 Ball Mount Be Used With Pintle Hitch
    According to Gen-Y, the Phantom Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # GY98XR is not rated for use with a pintle hitch. If you want to use a pintle hitch you will need the regular Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers. Although this does not come with a 6" rise/drop for a 2" receiver, we do have a 5" rise drop # 325-GH-523 or 7-1/2" # 325-GH-524 available. Both of these come with the pintle lock.

  • Options for Towing a Boat Trailer and Carrying a Bike Rack
    I may have a solution for you, however, our ball mount manufacturers do not currently offer a dual hitch receiver with a 4 inch drop. One possible solution would be to use a longer ball mount with a 4 inch drop like the Curt Extra Long Ball Mount, # D-26, and use a towing bike rack like the Swagman XP Towing Bike Rack, # S64955. This bike rack wraps around the shank of the ball mount and can carry up to 3 bikes. The tongue weight capacity of the Hidden Hitch ball mount is 600 lbs, so...
