Review of B and W Ball Mounts BWTS10050B


Today we'll be reviewing part number BWTS10050B. This is the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for 2 inch hitches proving a 9 inch drop or a 9 and a half in rise. Rated at 10,000 pounds. It does have 3 different size mounting balls. A 1 and 7/8th inch ball, a 2 inch ball and a 2 and 5/16th inch ball. It also has 2 different hitch pin hole locations, the best suite your towing application. We'll go ahead and line up out hitch pin holes and we'll install our hitch pin and lock. Now our hitch pin and lock or a hitch pin and clip which is what we're using is sold separately and you can refer to the ball mounts product page under related products to view that item. Now this ball mount with a built in hitch balls is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle.

The shank simply size into the hitch receiver and then the ball mounts are going to provide good connection points for your trailer coupler. This does have a stowable design that lets you store the ball mount underneath the receiver tube of your hitch. To do that, you'd pull the 2 pins and clips on the back side. That's going to let you pivot the ball mount and then you would line back up the holes and reinsert your pins and you'd secure with the clips on the other side. This is a great feature to have especially during travel. It could d o that flat flush mounted look on the back side of your vehicle.

Also it's going to keep the mounting balls out of the way when you're walking behind your vehicle, trying to keep your from banging your shins or bumping your light up against those ball mounts. This is just a great feature to have. We're going to go and swing it back out to the tow position and then another feature I want to show you is that this ball mount actually can adjust to different heights. That way you can tow different style of trailers or different applications and still use the same vehicle. This does adjust an increments of 1 inch. Once we have the desired height that we're looking for, we can go ahead and reinsert our pins and secure it with the clips on the other side. To switch between a different sized hitch balls, all you need to do is pull the pin up front and then you can rotate as needed to pick whatever mounting ball is going to work best for your towing application.

Once we have the desired one, we'll reinstall out pin and clip and then we're ready to tow. The dual process chrome plating on the balls helps provide excellent resistance against rust and the black powdered coated shank is corrosion resistant. The stainless steel pins help create sturdy rust proof connection points and a durable steel construction with a inaudible 00:03:04 tubing is going to offer superior strength. Now this ball mount is designed to work with a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. When using the 1 and 7/8th inch ball, we have a gross towing weight of 3,500 pounds. When using the 2 inch ball, we have a gross towing weight of 7,500 pounds and when using the 2 5/16th inch ball, we have a gross towing weight of 10,000 pounds. Now I mentioned earlier that we have 2 different hitch pin hole locations and from the center of the closest hitch pin hole to the center of our hitch balls, we have a measurement of 10 and a quarter inches. Now if we side this out to the other hitch pin hole location, we're going to have a measurement of about 11 and a half inches.

Again, this ball mount provides a maximum drop of 9 inches and when you flip this over to the rise position and move the ball mount to it's highest setting, you're going to have a maximum raise of 9 and a half inches. Now, again, this will adjust the same way that it adjust within the drop position and the balls will move freely so you can rotate to the desired one to best suite your towing application. This product comes with a limited 1 year warranty and that's going to complete today's review of part number BWTS10050B, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount. .
