Review of the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount

Today we'll be taking a look at the B&W Tow & Stow 3-ball mount for 2-1/2 inch hitches. It's available with a 4-1/2 inch drop or rise, rated at 14,500 pounds, Part Number BWTS20048B. It's also available with a 7-1/2 inch drop or rise, rated at 14,500 pounds, Part Number BWTS20049B. We're working with the 7-1/2 inch drop or rise today. The B&W Tow & Stow ball mount allows you to do just that, tow and stow. It's a tri-ball mount with options for 1-7/8ths, 2-inch, or 2-5/16ths. The 2-inch ball is rated for 7500 pounds, the 1-7/8ths ball is rated for 3500 pounds, and the 2-5/16ths ball is rated for 14,500 pounds.

It's adjustable at 1-3/8th inch increments. In the stow position, it's going to add a sleek and stylish look to the rear of your vehicle while still protecting the receiver tube from dirt and debris, and it's going to save your shins. It's made out of a durable steel construction with a black powder coat finish, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. The balls are made with a dual-process chrome plating, so they're going to provide excellent rust resistance. The stainless steel pins are going to provide a sturdy connection point, while also resisting rust and corrosion. It features two hitch pin holes.

You can use whichever one works best for you. The one closest to the hitch ball center to center is 9-3/8ths and the one furthest is 10-1/2 center to center. Now it's very easy to install. You can either install it in either the rise or drop position depending on your towing needs. We'll just line up our pin holes, and you'll just need to provide your own pin and clip. You can find one on our website, Part Number PC3, and then you've got it.

For a more secure installation, B&W does make a hitch lock for 2-1/2 inch hitches, and that's Part Number BWTS51235. Don't throw away your owner's manual. B&W is thoughtful enough to include some pin lubricant so your ball mount stays like new. That's going to complete our look at the B&W Tow & Stow 3-ball mount for 2-inch hitches.
