This cutaway view of the shank shows the locking mechanism in action. The locking pins extend out from the shank when the key is turned, locking the ball mount into the hitch.

After about 7 months, the lock that locks and releases the pin to the receiver was completely frozen stuck, and the key to the lock twisted off (pretty flimsy). After re-lubing the pin and lock again, twisted the other key off. i had to mangle the lock to get it off of my truck, and unit is now completely worthless... 404043

Received the hitch within 2 days of ordering. Installed quickly and with ease. Looks fantastic and the enclosed locks work great. Very happy and satisfied with this product and with eTrailer. 222482

- DTALBM6825

I previously purchased this product for a 2" receiver and was very pleased with it as I formerly kept five hitches in my truck for five trailers - each was a different height and one was a 2 5/16 ball with the others being 2". Consequently, I went from hauling around about 75 pounds of hitches to one at about 15 pounds - plus, being aluminum, it had greater load capacity and looked a lot nicer than the steel hitches. My new truck has a 2 1/2" (class V) receiver and the former hitch cam operated lock pins did not come out far enough to engage the receiver when an adapter was used; hence, the need to buy another one rated for 2 1/2" receivers. The new one arrived and it was a 2" hitch with extended pin lengths and an adapter to make it fit a 2 1/2" receiver. Unfortunately, the adapter was off center and I was unable to insert the unit into the receiver on the truck. There are two screws that affix the adapter to the hitch insert and after about an hour I was able to get the new hitch/adapter to fit my receiver using one of the two screws to get the sleeve and hitch lined up properly and discarding the second screw which would have caused further misalignment. While not very happy about the latter, I am pleased with the result. I would strongly suggest that the manufacturer have some type of quality control as it was very apparent to the naked eye that the sleeve and hitch were not properly aligned. As far as Etrailer, they have always been great to deal with and offer all kinds of support. I have been purchasing equipment from them for many years. 340339

After a year the hitch has worked well. Recently I was in VA with freeing rain then below freezing temperatures. I had to reverse the balls due to what I had to tow. To my surprise the locks had not frozen and worked as designed. Regarding salt exposure, I reside in Florida and after my trip to VA my vehicle was covered with salt. I used Salt Away for boats coupled with a nozzle. The unit is similar to a hose mounted liquid fertilizer applicator and allowed me to thoroughly clean the nooks and crannies including the hitch. It will not damage paint and is supposedly environmentally friendly.

I use this everyday, and I love it. It still looks like new, the key locks and slides still work like they did when they were new. I would 100% buy another one. 282504

Flawlessly. Still looks and works like new.

Great product. E-trailer incredible. Ordered on New Years eve, they shipped it within 2 hours and arrived day after new years. Incredible customer service thus far. 167629

eTrailer put this on my door step in no time, and I am a happy camper! This hitch is a work of art. I like the self locking feature and the clean design, it is not only functional, but it looks great too. The hitch came with four keys which is more than enough. One feature I was not aware of, is the ball mount can be flipped behind the drop mount on certain hitches, your chin will thank them for doing that. I would highly recommend this hitch and eTrailer to anybody looking for a reciever hitch. 155280

- DTALBM6825

WOW! Excellent service, Shipped immediately. Package arrived well packed and undamaged Product was easy to set up - LOOKS GREAT - WORKS GREAT Th only improvement I could suggest would be a tighter fit into the hitch to eliminate rattle. 154023

- DTALBM6825

Installed on my new dodge 2500. Great looking, adjust easy, and works well. Locking system is very nice. It will make pulling my enclosed trailer on our mid-west hunting trips easier. 151367

- DTALBM6825

Product is great and delivery was extremely quick. Appreciated the follow-up and status of delivery. I have two trailers (1) 2" and (1) 2-5/16", so this saved time and was easily switched in seconds. Security lock worked smooth and great to have (4) keys sent along. Would highly recommend this receiver and etrailer.com 149711

- DTALBM6825

This is an excellent piece! I've had to use several different ball mounts for years, due to different tongue heights on my various trailers. Problem solved! Looks great, isn't too heavy, and doesn't rattle too badly, although there is still some minor (expected) movement. It is far less sloppy than another adjustable ball mount I have, that sits unused mainly due to the annoying rattling. I like the locking mechanism, and hopefully it will handle our winter road salt. I don't typically leave the ball mount on the truck when not in use, but the security offered by the locking pins seems superior to using the typical locking hitch pins. Good peace of mind. I highly recommend this piece, and as always, etrailers service was excellent, price was right, and delivery was right on schedule. 146490

Got the hitch on Wednesday as promised. Used the hitch today to haul my sisters belongings to NC. Hitch worked perfect. No issues and very pleased with the product. Needed the drop hitch because my truck is lifted. 127424

- DTALBM6825

Product was delivered quickly as advertised. Looks good, almost too good for a hitch. Easy to install and adjust. It's pricey, the design and the flexibility make the investment worth while. 121681

Overall, Im still satisfied with the product but there are some items that I wish were different or I would have done differently. Yes it rattles a lot as has been mentioned. Additionally as it has been used, it is difficult to get the pin to properly engage in several slots which limits adjustability and finally I would go with the stainless balls instead of chrome as the chrome pealed off after first use so now I have rusty balls. For the money involved, if I ever need to buy another hitch, I would probably would not buy another.

Thanks for the follow up after using your ball mount for at least a year. If you would prefer the stainless steel trailer ball option you might check out the # DTSTBM6825-2S
Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Stainless Balls - 2.5" Hitch - 8" Drop, 9" Rise
with the flip style option for a 2 inch or 2-5/16 inch trailer ball. Or you might also check out the # DTALBM6825-3S
Self-Locking, Adjustable 3-Ball Mount, Stainless Balls - 2.5" Hitch - 8" Drop/9" Rise
that has 3 different interchangeable options for 1-7/8, 2, or 2 inch trailer ball.

Ask the Experts about this Fastway Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount for 2.5 Inch Hitch Receiver
    The highest rated adjustable ballmount for a 2-1/2" hitch receiver is rated for 10,000 lbs. So I would recommend going with the Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount # C45900. This adjustable ball mount is rated for 14,000 lbs, and has a rise of 5-1/4" and a drop of 6" and fits 2" trailer hitch receivers. You will then want to use a reducer like # 58102, which adapts a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" hitch receiver opening into a 2" x 2. I spoke with my contact at Curt about adjustable ball mount...

  • Can Classic Accessories Hitch Tote Ball Mount Bag be Used for Diversi-Tech Ball Mount # DTALBM6825
    When looking for a bag to fit the Diversi-Tech Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTALBM6825, I recommend taking a look at the Classic Accessories Tote, # CA80113. This bag measures 36" long, 11" wide, and 8" tall which would give you plenty of room for the ball mount and additional towing accessories like tie-down straps.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount that Reduces Rattle In 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
    All ball mounts will rattle a little or you would not be able to fit them inside the receiver. I recommend part # DTSTBM6625. It has an adjustable pin in the top of the shank that protrudes through the adapter that prevents rattling. The attached balls measure 2 inches and 2-5/16 inches. I have attached a photo that shows where the adjustment is made to tighten the ball mount once it has been installed in the receiver opening. However this ball mount has a 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise...

  • Diversi-Tech Aluminum Adjustable Ball Mount that Will do 6 Inches of Drop and 7 Inches of Rise
    The closest thing to what you are looking for would be the Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM6625. This will do 6 inches of drop and 7 inches of rise. Other than that this ball mount is the exact same as the DTALBM6825. For an upgraded version of this ball mount you would want the part # DTALBM6625-2S. This comes with stainless steel balls that will resist corrosion much better than the chrome plated balls of the # DTALBM6625. The locks have rubber covers that...

  • Ball Mount Like Hidden Hitch Super Extra Long # 80232 Needed for Class V Hitch
    The closest that I have to offer for a Class V hitch would be the Reese Titan Ball Mount, # RP45322, which can provide a 1-1/2 inch rise or 3 inch drop and measures 10 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. I have included a link to all of the fixed ball mounts that will work with a Class V 2-1/2 inch hitch for you.

  • What is the Difference Between Diversi-Tech Ball Mounts # DTALBM6825 and # DTALBM6825-2S
    The difference between the Diversi-Tech Self-Locking Aluminum Adjustable Ball Mounts, # DTALBM6825 and # DTALBM6825-2S is the finish of the hitch balls. Part # DTALBM6825 comes with 2 chrome-plated hitch balls and part # DTALBM6825-2S comes with 2 stainless steel hitch balls. The stainless steel finish will resist rust much better than chrome plating, which is the reason for the price difference. I have attached review videos of both ball mounts for you to check out.

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2 inch HItch
    The sleeve of the # DTALBM6825 cannot be removed so that it can be installed in a 2 inch hitch. The problem is the hitch pin device sticks out too far. You would need to go with the 2 inch hitch version part # DTALBM6800 instead.

    The Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM6825 that you referenced can go from 8 inches of drop to 9 inches of rise in 1 inch increments. It will do 0 inches of rise/drop as well. If you are looking for an adjustable aluminum ball mount similar to the # DTALBM6825 that comes with greaseless ball you would want the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount # AM3405 that you referenced as this is the only option with that feature.

    That's great news that you have one Diversi-Tech key left to find the code number listed. If your key will says for example 5545 then you will need the part DTKEYR5545. So you will want to look for part number DTKEYRXXXX and fill in the code where you see the X's.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for a Ford F-350 Pickup
    The adjustable ball mount you will need will depend on the height of the top of the hitch opening on your F-350 with 2-1/2 inch receiver hitch.

For instance, on my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 the top of the receiver opening is 20 inches from the ground when parked on a level surface. I use an adjustable drop receiver at 5 inches of drop, top of receiver opening to top of ball mount, for towing a equipment...

  • Will Fastway Locking Adjustable Ball Mount # DTALBM6800-2S Fit 2-1/2-Inch Hitch with Adapter Sleeve
    The Fastway Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM6800-2S is intended for 2-inch hitch receivers but not for 2-1/2-inch types. It would not work with a hitch reducer sleeve in place because its locking pins would not be able to reach through the adapter. For your 2-1/2-inch hitch a better choice is the Fastway # DTALBM6825 which also has a 10K capacity and the same 8-inch drop and 9-inch rise.
