The B&W Tow & Stow adjustable ball mount lets you tow a variety of trailers with different tongue heights. Having a 1-7/8" ball, a 2" ball and a 2-5/16" ball allows for even more versatility, making this the ultimate go-to ball mount if you own multiple trailers.


Easily Adjusts and Stows

B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount Operation

To switch the hitch ball, simply remove the pin holding the balls in place and rotate the entire block that the balls are mounted on until the ball you want to use is on top. Then replace the pin to secure the block in place.


Adjusting the height of the ball is just as easy. Remove the pins holding the ball mount platform in place and slide the platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Once you have found the correct height, reinsert the pins and replace the clips.


When you're not towing, you can flip the ball mount platform around and stow it beneath your hitch so that you won't bang your shins. Just remove the pins to slide the ball platform down along the channel and up the back side so that the hitch balls face towards your vehicle. Then replace the pins.


Built-In Anti-Theft System

The Tow & Stow ball mount features a channel that runs along both sides of the shank. This channel not only allows you to slide the ball mount platform up and down to adjust the ball height, but it also prevents removal of the platform when the ball mount is installed, which will help prevent theft of your trailer.


Single Dimensions

A slot is cut into the adjustment channel near the top of the shank. To remove the ball mount platform from the shank you will need to remove the entire ball mount from your hitch. Then remove the pins that hold the platform in place. Flip the platform around to the stowed position on the rear of the shank, and then slide it up until the center pin lines up with the slot in the shank. Pull the platform out towards the rear of the shank until the pin pops out of the adjustment channel.


When the Tow & Stow is secured in your hitch receiver, you will not be able to remove the ball mount platform. This is because the slot in the shank is positioned in such a way that the collar on your hitch will block the pin on the platform from being able to leave the channel. Even if the pins holding the ball mount platform in place are removed, the platform will still be confined to this channel. So, as long as a hitch lock is used to secure the entire ball mount in your hitch receiver, and a coupler lock is used to prevent your trailer's coupler from being disengaged from the ball, your trailer will be secure.

Well built, very strong. The welds look awesome! This is a heavy ball mount but if you are considering an adjustable height and ball mount this is the best one I ran across. Most people will install it, lock it in place and seldom remove it so the weight isn't really an issue. I love the flexibility this hitch provides. Numerous height and ball diameter combinations allow me to back up to any of my trailers and hook on. I didn't think I cared about the ability to fold the balls up under the receiver but I actually use this feature and like it. Highly recommend! 183756

This is a very high quality hitch. The Powdercoating is nice, as is the finish on the balls. I like that it comes with stainless steel pins and clips instead of some zinc coated junk. It has been great for me. Also, if you have a Tahoe/Yukon/suburban/yukon XL, this hitch will flip around and fold perfectly under your bumper for a clean look! That’s how mine is setup. Thanks etrailer for another great product! 649385

This is the perfect hitch! We are able to quickly change ball size to fit the trailer we are hauling - whether horse, utility, or camping trailer. When not in use, we can easily move the hitch so the ball portion is on the other side, underneath bumper. This is awesome - no bruised and banged up shins! The tow rating is great, also. This hitch is so versatile, easy to use, and well made! I highly recommend it! 607912

Just received ball mount yesterday. This ball mount is heavy duty with a quality feel. Fit and finish are impressive with durable coatings and tight tolerances. Allows me to tow my motorcycle trailer and cargo trailer with one ball mount (different ball sizes and heights for each trailer). I was worried that the 7” drop might be too low for my 2016 Ram 1500 with stock air suspension, but since installed, it looks good and I’m no longer concerned with possibly bottoming out during daily driving. Added the silencer pad upon initial install and haven’t heard any rattling. So far I’m overall impressed with this product. 520291

It’s a nice product works real good although the pins are starting to rust , just after one year that’s not good need to fix that 484129


Comments

The best way to prevent pins from corroding is to keep them clean and regularly apply a thin coating of white lithium grease. Keep in mind that metal parts in contact with each other and exposed to the elements can eventually corrode and rust, even though the pins are constructed of stainless steel. Regular maintenance is required.

One year later my hitch as been used for weekly duty between lawn mower trailers to car haulers. I'm pleased to say it has performed flawlessly and even looks good to boot. Maintainence for me is a spray lube & protectant. Despite leaving it on constantly there are no signes of rust or imperfections whatsoever. My only want is for an overall higher tow/tongue weight. For day to day convenience it's tough to match. 409422

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Ram 1500
  • For the New Body Style of the 2019 Ram 1500 you need the Draw-Tite # 41913 as it is currently the only trailer hitch that has been confirmed to fit. This is a strong Class V trailer hitch which exceeds the max towing rating of your Ram 1500. Even though this is the case it is worth noting that this will not increase the weight rating of your pickup so that will be the limiting factor. You should already have a 7-Way on your Ram, but you may consider swapping out your current connection...

  • Recommended B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for Ford F-250 Trucks
  • For your standard height trucks and trailers, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10048B will work very well for both of your trucks. This will not only work well with all 5 of your trailers but will also give you great ground clearance. If you had a lift on your truck, then I'd recommend the 7 inch drop # BWTS10049B, but it won't be needed on a non-lifted truck and will give you less ground clearance. The 2 inch shank on the # BWTS10048B...

  • Trailer Hitch with Most Capacity for 2019 Ford F-150 Truck
  • The trailer hitch with the most capacity that fits your 2019 Ford F-150 is the Curt # C14017, which has a 1,000 lb tongue weight capacity and 10,000 lb towing capacity. This is a Class IV hitch with a 2 inch receiver that is a complete bolt-on installation which does not require any type of drilling into your truck's frame. This hitch has a mostly hidden crosstube, as you can see in the accompanying photo, so your 2019 F-150 can maintain its factory appearance. The Curt # C14017...

  • Recommended B & W Tow & Stow Ball Mount for 2005 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
  • By 6-1/2 inch, I'm assuming you're speaking of the drop, correct? You will want to choose a ball mount that has enough drop so that you can tow your trailer so it's level. To determine the necessary drop (or rise) you'll need to find the height difference between your 2 inch receiver tube on your hitch and the underside of the trailer's coupler as outlined in the help article I've linked for you. If your current ball mount has a drop of 6-1/2 inches and tows a trailer so it's level,...

This is nice because you will eliminate the possibility of hitting your shins while working around your hitch. The adjustable height will allow you the ability to tow trailers of different heights. The maximum drop is 7-inches and maximum rise is 7-1/2 inches. They are adjusted in 1-inch increments. I...

  • Choosing the Correct B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount for 2015 GMC 2500HD with 20 Inch Rims
  • For safe and comfortable towing, a trailer should always be as level as possible. In order to determine which B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount will work best on your 2015 GMC 2500HD with 20 inch rims, you will need to measure your hitch height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening as well as the coupler height of the trailer that you intend to tow. The difference between the measurements will determine the rise or drop that is needed for your setup. I have attached an article which...

Keep in mind that drop is measured from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform, so if you needed a ball mount with 7" of drop the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10049B would be the correct one for you.

This adjustable mount offers a height range of 7-inches of drop up to 7-1/2-inches of rise. It is possible to weld on a sway control tab # 3442 but this might interfere with the adjustability.

I recommend using a multi hitch ball like the straight # 45325 or the adjustable # BWTS10049B. Both of these include a 1-7/8", 2", and a 2-5/16" hitch ball which will come in handy for various towing applications.

  • Will the Pintle Hook/Hitch Ball Combo Fit on a Standard B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount
  • I am glad to hear how much you love your B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS10049B. I would be happy to get you a similar pintle hook and hitch ball combo as well but unfortunately it is not as easy as just using an adapter on the one you have now. The reason that this cannot be done is that the shank on the ball mount you have now is different than the one on the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball part # BWTS10056, therefore the pintle hook/hitch ball position of this ball...

  • Adjustable 3-Ball Ball Mount with 6-Inches of Drop
  • Any multi-ball ball mount such as the Pro Series # 63070 for 2-inch hitches will have varying weight ratings based on which hitch ball is in use. This item is rated for 14K when using its largest 2-5/16-inch ball but has lower weight ratings for the smaller balls. I checked with my technical contact at Pro Series and confirmed that no other shank is available to provide more drop. B&W offers their 3-ball mount # BWTS10049B that has up to 7-inches of drop but it is rated for a maximum...

  • What is the Tongue Weight Capacity of B&W Model 10 Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount
  • The tongue weight capacity of the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10049B depends on which ball you are using. The max tongue weight capacity is 1,000 pounds which is 10 percent of the gross capacity when using the 2-5/16 inch ball. When using the 2 inch ball rated for 7,500 pounds it would be best to keep the tongue weight up 750 pounds. And for the 1-7/8 inch ball rated for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight it is best to keep the tongue weight up to 350 pounds. But the unit itself...

  • Can the Balls or Ball Platform be Stolen Off of the B&W Tow &W Ball Mounts
  • According to B&W: When the Tow & Stow is secured in your hitch receiver, you will not be able to remove the ball mount platform. This is because the slot in the shank is positioned in such a way that the collar on your hitch will block the pin on the platform from being able to leave the channel. Even if the pins holding the ball mount platform in place are removed, the platform will still be confined to this channel. So, as long as a hitch lock is used to secure the entire ball mount...

  • How Much Rise Do I need In B&W Tow & Stow on Truck With Leveling Kit
  • The appropriate amount of rise would really depend on the measurement from the bottom of the trailer coupler that you are towing to the ground. That would be the the measurement you would typically subtract from the truck's hitch to the ground measurement to determine the rise or drop in a ball mount that you may need to be within 2 inches of level with the trailer. Since you mention that you tow several different trailers then I recommend to use the adjustable ball mount with the largest...

  • How to Determine What Ball Mount Will Work With Silverado With Lift Kit
  • The best way to determine what size ball mount you need is to take a couple of quick measurements. Park the trailer and the tow vehicle on a level area. Measure from the top of the receiver hitch opening to the ground. Then measure from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. If the distance from the top of the receiver opening to the ground is greater then you will need a ball mount with a drop. You would need to select a ball mount that is closest to the difference between...

  • Towing Weight Capacity and Parts Need to Tow with a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 3.7L V-6 Engine
  • If you check page 550 of your owner's manual it states that a 2012 Ram 1500 with a 3.7L V-6 engine has a towing weight capacity of 3,750 lbs. For a trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41948 which is the most popular trailer hitch for your 1500. You also need wiring like the Tekonsha # 119178KIT for a 4-Way and then the Kit # ETBC7 if you need a fully functioning 7-Way. I recommend using an adjustable ball mount like the B&W # BWTS10049B...
