Fastway Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - FA49-00-5925 Review


Today we're going to take a look at the Flash Solid Steel heavy duty adjustable two ball mount for two and a half inch hitch. Has a 10 inch drop and a maximum nine inch rise with a 20,000 pound weight capacity. Now this heavy duty ball mount with the included hitch ball lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion right here is what'll slide into your hitch receiver opening and the hitch ball provides the connection point for your trailer coupler.If you notice it is an adjustable height design lets you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. Basically all you have to do is pull out the two clips and pins and then slide the ball platform up or down the shank and secure it in place with the included pins. It can be used in the drop position like this or if you flip it over, can be used in the rise position.It does use two different size hitch ball diameter's, a two inch diameter and the 2 5/16 so this will let you tow trailers with different coupler sizes and it's the same way if you want to change the ball around, pull the two clips and pins, flip the ball platform over.

You can choose whichever ball diameter you need.This is a solid forged steel shank, offers exceptional strength and commercial grade towing capacity. If you notice, has a nice durable black glossy finish to help resist rust and corrosion. Now when you do install this into your hitch receiver, it does require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock to secure this to your hitch receiver. Both those items we do sell separately on our website and they're listed on this product page as a related product. Again, the application is for two and a half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitch receivers, ball diameters again, two inch diameter, 2 5/16, gross towing weight capacity will depend on the ball size you use.

To use the two and five sixteenths ball, it's going to be 20,000 pounds. If you use a smaller two inch diameter ball, it's 12,000 pounds. Tongue weight capacity would be 2,000 pounds. Now the maximum drop, that's the position I got it in now. It's measured from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform is 10 inch maximum drop.

If you flip it over to a maximum rise position and use it in that position, your maximum rise will be measured from the top of the shank top of the ball platform. It's gonna be right at nine inches.A few more measurements I want to give to you is on the hitch pin hole and the adjustments. Flip it back into the drop position. The distance between the adjustment holes, center to center is 1 5/16 inch. The measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole and you should return it this way.

Center of the hitch pin holes to the center of the ball is going to be right at 9 1/4 inchs. And then the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the strap bar here, which will come into play if you use it in a rise position, that is going to be right at 3 1/2 inches.But that should do it for the review on the Flash Solid Steel heavy duty adjustable two ball mount for a 2 1/2 inch hitch with a 10 inch drop, 9 inch rise, and a 20,000 pound weight capacity.
