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 2 Ball Mount - 325-GH-524

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this GEN-Y adjustable two ball mount with stacked receivers. This is going to allow you to hook your trailer up to your tow vehicle. This will slide right into your two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver, and then it's gonna provide the two inch ball and the 2-5/16 inch ball, or the ball paired with the pintle lock so that you can connect to your trailer. So whether your trailer has a two inch ball coupler, 2-5/16 inch ball coupler, or a lunette ring, this is going to allow you to hook up to it. So that's gonna give us a lot of adjustability there, a lot of versatility.

With our two inch ball we are going to have a gross towing weight capacity of 12,000 pounds, which is of course the weight of the trailer plus the load included. And a maximum tongue weight which is the downward pressure on your ball of 1,500 pounds. So you wanna make sure you're distributing your weight in your trailer appropriately. For 2-5/16 inch ball, we're gonna have a 16,000 pound gross towing weight and a 2000 pound max tongue weight. So it's going to give us lots of strength and stability there as we're towing.

We do also of course have the stacked receivers here. So we're gonna have these four, two inch by two inch stacked receivers that will allow us to mount our included ball mount and pintle lock as well as other hitch mounted accessories like your bike racks, cargo carriers, that sort of thing. But having these stacked receivers is going to allow us to move our ball mount up and down so that we can accommodate trailers with different tongue heights or different coupler heights or rather. So that everything's gonna be nice and level as we're going down the road. So if we we're to move our ball to this lowest setting here we measure our drop from the top inside edge of your receiver tube down to where that coupler is going to sit.

So this is going to give us a maximum drop of 7 1/2 inches. We could also flip this over and use it in the rise position. If we we're to mount our ball mount at the highest point here we would have a rise of 7 1/2 inches. So whether your trailer sits 7 1/2 inches higher than your hitch or 7 1/2 inches lower and of course anywhere in between and we're gonna be able to accommodate that. So, and that's gonna be great for those of you who pull multiple trailers, you've got a camper and a boat, something along those lines where you use it for work frequently.

And this will allow you to accommodate those different trailer heights and very easily just pull out the pin and then you can move that to wherever you need to be for your trailer. So very, very easy to get that all set up. They do include these pretty unique pins and that will hold these in place. They're just the standard five, eight inch in diameter. So they'll work for your other hitch mounted accessories as well. But they've got this kind of unique clip here that just twists in place like that. Our pintle lock has two positions and that it can be mounted in. So if you're wanting to use it you can have it in that forward position. Or if you're not wanting to use it, you can slide it back. And it stores pretty easily away like so and so very easy to use that. And you can of course move that to your different locations as well. So one thing they don't include is the hitch pin and clip to get this secured to your vehicle. This is just your standard five eight inch diameter hole here. So you probably already have a pin and clip for your hitch and that will work. We do have options available here at etrailer.com. If you're needing a new one and we also have locking pins available. So if you're wanting to add a little extra security make sure that no one's gonna be able to come along, take this off. We do have those locking pins available there again you just need a standard five, eight inch diameter. So they give you the two pins for one for your ball mount and the other for your pintle lock. They don't have that hitch hole one. This is gonna be a really nice heavy duty steel construction GEN-Y has a great reputation for building very robust, solid products and this is no exception. So it is going to be pretty hefty but it is going to give you those high weight capacities and towing and that sort of thing. You can see it does have a zinc primer and powder coat finish. That's gonna help resist corrosion. So it'll be nice and long lasting for us, our ball mount, and our pintle lock both have a matte black finish to them. So they look really nice and help with corrosion resistance there as well. This hitch meet the SAE J684 certified standards. So you can trust it is gonna be a good quality it's gonna do what you need it to do. It's also made here in the USA. So of course you can trust that it's gonna be a good quality materials and craftsmanship because of that. But overall, I think this is gonna be a really nice option for those of you who are needing to tow multiple kinds of trailers. or if you're just needing that 7 1/2 drop for your trailer, that's the only trailer you're gonna tow. And this will still do a good job for you. So that completes our work for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com thanks for watching..

Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise - 16K - 325-GH-524

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (148 Customer Reviews)

Insert this heavy-duty mount into your 2" hitch to get 4 stacked 2" receivers for mounting the included 2" ball, 2-5/16" ball, pintle hook, or other hitch-mounted accessory.

by:

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.



by:

Received my hitch as described and within a reasonable amount of time.Have used it several times and it performs admirably. Recommend it for your towing needs. The only thing I would change is to have a cable attached to the clip and thru pin. I attached a stainless steel wire to prevent the two from being lost or misplaced. J



by:

Heavy, well constructed, like the bolts that decrease/eliminate rattle. Bought this to replace my aluminum ball mount. For a 2” ball it was rated at 8,000 lbs, this one is 12,000 lbs. I can see why. It’s overkill if you are towing smaller trailers, waverunners, etc. But I upgraded for my boat which is about 8,000 lbs fully loaded. This should have not prbalrns holding up to that and more.



by:

Very attentive and knowledgeable customer service . My gen-y Hitch hitch locks and 2.5" reducer sleeve all arrived just as ordered:) My order arrived in 3 days which was 1 day sooner than expected:) Excellent experience



by:

A new truck we received had a utility body on it that protruded past the receiver hitch far enough that we had to use an extender in order to pull a trailer. The hitch extensions were limited to 3500 lbs trailer weight. This ball mount solved the issue with not having to use a hitch extender, plus it's adjustable towing height enables us to pull our trailers level. It also allow us to use a pintle hitch without having to change ball mounts. This unit is well made and durable.



by:

I think the best way to describe this hitch is BEEFY! It is crazy durable and is the only hitch you will ever need considering you can later add weight distribution and sway control.



by:

It's very solidly built and easy to adjust. My only issue is that the pins to lock the ball and the pintle piece in place are not lockable. I'd be very upset if someone stole them out of the hitch.



by:

Gen Y ball mount is so solid, best in the business.



by:

I have used etrailer multiple times for my business, They are always very efficient and have what I need. Received the order the next day with confirmation the order was picked and on its way.



by:

Always great to do business with etrail er.



by:

Very nice workmanship. Very strong feel.

Strongest hitch on the market. Will buy another one for the next truck.

Was going back and forth between this Gen-Y and a B&W trailer hitch. I have never had a B&W but I am sure it is a great product as well. I chose this Gen-Y because it has the added advantage of pulling a trailer with a pintle hitch. I have three trailers all with different set ups. A 2in, 2 5/16, and a pintle hitch. With this set up I can pull all three with the same hitch. Perfect for my needs. I ordered it on Sunday evening and it was at my door by Tuesday afternoon. Excellent product and service.

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


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


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.

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


This thing is a monster. I installed it on a chevy 2500 with a 6.5" lift and 37" tires. With 5 different height options I can not imagine any trailer i couldnt keep level. The best part is no more changing hitches just changing the hight. Also, the pintle adapter is an amazing addition too. It's so simple to use and works great. This hitch is expensive but totally worth it.

Great hitch, ball will loose the black paint. Need to apply lubricant before and after use for easy hitching.

I was looking at all the hitches on the market and after some comparisons I decided to go with Gen-Y. The reason being is their versatility 4in1 hitch. After receiving the hitch I can say it is very heavy duty and heavy!

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

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!
