Review of Diversi-Tech Ball Mounts DTSTBM6600-2S


Today were going to review part number DTSTBM6600-2S. This is the Diversi-Tech Solid-Tow Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount. This adjustable ball mount will make it easy for you to haul different trailers. The ball height you can see right here can be adjusted at increments of 1 inch so that you can easily switch between trailers of different tongue height. This platform is reversible. It will let you swap between either a 2-inch hitch ball, a 2-5/16 hitch ball.

Up at the very top here, theres a little bolt that when you put it, tighten it right here, its a self-tensioning anti-rattle solid tow system and this will tighten the ball mount thats inside your receiver tube and secures the ball platform to the ball mount. Now, they do recommend to only use this anti-rattle mechanism in the down position or the drop position, not to use it in the up or the rise position. It will help stop rattle and clunking and it does use internal stainless steel bolts for long life. You adjust it with this included Allen wrench. This ball mount is a machine from a solid piece of aircraft grade billet aluminum.

This solid aluminum will produce a lightweight yet very strong ball mount. It doesnt have any welds which can cause weak points that might break and have a nice polished finish which will create a high quality appearance. The hitch balls themselves are made of a 303 stainless steel which is great for marine applications and highly resistant to corrosion. This part is made in the USA. Now, this does fit into a 2-inch trailer hitch receiver.

The ball diameters again are 2-inch and 2-5/16. It does have a towing capacity of 10,000 lbs and a tongue weight capacity of 1500 lbs. I do have this positioned in the maximum drop position. The drop would be measured from the top of the hitch receiver opening to the top of the ball mount platform. So if we put a ruler on that that would be 6 inches.

We flip it over and do a maximum rise again from the top of the hitch opening to the platform that would be 7 inches. Now the distance from the center of this hitch pin hole to the back of this upright bar, youll be able to see here, is 4-1/4 inches and then the distance from the center of this hitch pin hole to the center of the actual ball mount is going to be right at 8-1/2 inches. This does come with a one year limited warranty. Just to show you how you can move this up or down, what you want to do is there is a safety lock screw right over here and you do have to use the short end of the Allen wrench because it has a hole drilled into it that would fit into there. If you tried to use the other end with that little pin thats in the middle, it wont allow it. Just use that short end, loosen the lock, now that will allow you to loosen the screw on the front here. Once you loosen that enough, then youre able to see that you can slide it in one inch increments up or down. Once you find the right one, just go ahead and tighten it back down. Once you go ahead and tighten it back down thats the position you wanted that, then go ahead over here, use the short end, tighten the lock screw down and that will keep anybody from putting a regular Allen wrench on here and loosening it up. They have to have this hole drilled in this end to actually unlock it. Now actually, these hitch balls can be removed from the ball platform themselves. I just, using this Allen screw, and screw it all the way in then you can remove it. You dont want to screw it all the way out. You would need to screw it all the way in until it comes out and then the balls would slide out also, you can replace them as necessary. That should do it. It comes with a one-year limited warranty. That should do it for the review of part number DTSTBM6600-2S the Diversi-Tech Solid-Tow Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount.
