I like the hitch but it is NOT usable for A pintle hitch. The bottom plate where the ring rides in the hitch is flat and very slick and the ring slams around when you turn, stop, and start off. This is VERRY DANGEROUS as it could snap the ball off. If the bottom plate had A place for the ring to lay in it would solve Your Problem. I would like to hear from you
Thanks!

I did reach out to B & W to address your concerns. They agreed that due to the size difference with that large of lunette ring, it is possible for there to be some play there. The best solution that they provided would be to look into using a smaller lunette ring. We do carry a variety of lunnette rings that range in size.



by:

The hitch works perfectly on both 2-5/15 ball or pintle ring trailers. When not in use it neatly stows under the truck frame hitch receiver. Two pins and it swings under removing the hazard of someone or something hitting the hitch if were protruding out like traditional ones.



by:

I have purchased 3 of these hitches from etrailer. They hold up really well and provide plenty of flexibility when switching trucks and trailers. I really like the short distance from the truck to the trailer. This hitch doesn't extend that distance which would result in excess leverage when towing a heavy load. Very practical and worth the investment.

Alex and Eric were extremely helpful and completed my orders fast! I will be ordering all my towing equipment from these guys!
Thanks again!

This hitch is a very handy addition to my toolbox! I work for a county road department, and Iā€™m always pulling different trailers to and from job sites. I can switch from a 2 5/16ā€ ball hitch, to a pintle hitch with the flip of a lever! Thanks B and W!



by:

I have only used the product one; I think it is an amazing hitch!



by:

I have several of these hitches in various configurations and heights. This hitch is well built and fits my F150 perfectly.



by:

This Hitch is GREAT. There is nothing you won't be able to tow that has a 2" coupler, with the 10,000 Pound rated ball! Bonus, it works as a Pintle hitch as well. If you go to an equipment rental house for something and they only have Pintles, you're all set (and at 16,000 pounds capacity). A wide range of height adjustments allows my 4x4 Dodge Cummins to adjust to many tongue arrangements. **Remember, your rig can safely haul only up to the rating of EACH component, representing the weakest link.



by:

Works perfectly service was great



by:

It works good but to me it wears a little too much from the movement of the Pintle on the flat section where the pintle sits on the hitch

  • Pin Hole Diameter and Distance from Pin Hole to Ball Center B and W Tow N Stow # BWTS20056
    I checked with B and W and the pin hole diameter of the Tow n Stow part # BWTS20056 is 5/8 inch and from the closest pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole measures 10.4 inches and then from the further hole measures 12.06 inches. The pin hole that is first is approximately 3.18ā€ to the end of the receiver. The pin hole that is second is approximately 5ā€ to the end of the receiver.

  • Does B and W Clevis Adapter BWTS35200B Fit B and W Tow and Stow BWTS20056
    Yes, the Clevis Adapter for B&W Tow & Stow 2-1/2" Ball Mounts # BWTS35200B that you referenced does fit the 2-1/2 inch hitch versions of the B and W Tow and Stow Ball Mounts like the part # BWTS20056 that you referenced.

  • Pintle Hook Solution that Can Fit on Adjustable Height Ball Mount Shank
    You might be interested in the B and W Tow and Stow Pintle Hook Combo part # BWTS20056 which I believe is the type of setup you are looking for. The Shocker plate does not fit the Bulletproof shank/channels.

  • Adjustable Height Pintle Combo with 2-5/16 inch Ball, 2.5 inch Hitch, and Rated for 20k
    The best and only option we have that covers everything you need is the Curt Pintle Hook Combo part # C45908 which fits the 2-1/2 inch hitch size, has a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball, is adjustable in height, and has a 20k capacity.

  • Is There A Pintle Hook/2-5/16" Ball Combo For 2-1/2" Hitch and Multi-Pro Tailgate On 2022 GMC 3500
    Unfortunately no, B&W only makes a 2-1/2" Tow & Stow hitch for the multi-pro tailgate on your 2022 GMC Sierra 3500 with a 2" and 2-5-1/6" ball # BWTS20066BMP or with a 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5-1/6" Ball # BWTS20067BMP. Since you're needing a 2-5/16" ball with a pintle hook you'll have to just use the standard version # BWTS20056 and remove it when you need to use your tail gate. While I'm sure its not what you were hoping to hear, it's going to be your only option for the foreseeable future.

  • Hitch Balls Compatible With B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook Combo
    I have another option, but since the Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set # 105TB uses a 1" diameter shank it is not compatible with the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook - 2-5/16" Ball # BWTS20056. Instead if you need to be able to tow a trailer that requires a 2" ball you can swap out the included 2-5/16" ball with the Replacement Hitch Ball for B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook Combo - 2" # BWTS10051 which has a 1-1/4" diameter shank and will not lower the towing rating or pintle towing rating...

  • Can You Switch a Trailer with Lunette Ring for a 2-5/16" Trailer Coupler
    It sounds like you have a lunette ring on your trailer now and are wanting to swap that out for a 2-5/16" trailer coupler and if that's the case we have some great options for this. If it's an a-frame trailer which is the most common type then I recommend the Curt QuickPin No Latch A-Frame Trailer Coupler part # C84DR which can simply be bolted to the trailer frame with no welding required. In order to remove the old coupler, you'd likely need to cut the existing welds off if that's how...

  • Why Does B and W Tow n Stow Have Higher Capacity When Used as Pintle
    This is a good question, but the reason the B and W Tow And Stow part # BWTS20056 has a higher weight capacity when used with the pintle setup is because the arm that comes down and rests on the top of the ball when used as a pintle adds additional support to the ball which gives it additional capacity. It also can be used with a 3 inch hitch adapter like the part # C85JR as well.

  • Can Curt Pintle Hook Mounting Plate be Used Only in Drop Position
    Yes I can; the Curt Pintle Hook Mounting Plate for 2-1/2" Hitches # C48239 can only be used in the drop position. For something that can be used with a rise (up to 4-1/2 inches) you'd need the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2" Ball # BWTS20055 or B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball # BWTS20056. Both the Curt and B&W options do need to be secured to your hitch with either Pin & Clip # C21582 or Hitch Lock # 34061072-D.

  • Parts Needed For Putting Pintle Hook On 14,000LB Northstar Trailer And Recommended Hitch With Locks
    It appears your Northstar Ironbull Deckover Dump DDP9616072 comes with a 3" channel bracket which will accept the Buyers Products Lunette Ring # 337B16140. If you have a different size channel or different mount please let me know as I am going off the current trailer information. For your 2019 Ram 3500 I recommend using the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook # BWTS20056. This pintle hook is rated for trailers up to 14,000lbs which is the maximum trailer weight I found on your trailer. It also...

  • Is There a B&W Tow & Stow For 3 Inch Hitch With 21,000 lb Capacity
    So there is a B&W Tow & Stow that fits a 3 inch hitch and has a capacity up to 21,000 lbs, but not with a pintle hook. I checked directly with B&W to verify this for you. The 21k capacity is for the included 2-5/16" hitch ball, and if you were okay with that, you can choose from the following, depending on the maximum rise or drop you need: - Max 4-1/2" Drop, 4" Rise: B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch # BWTS30037B - Max 7-1/2" Drop, 7" Rise: B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount With 1-7/8", 2", 2-5/16" and Pintle Lock Capabilities
    The only hitch we currently carry that has all 3 ball sizes along with a pintle lock is the Patriot Hitches 5-Way 3-Ball Mount and Adjustable Drop Hitch Adapter # PH94FR. As this is limited in weight capacity to 7,000lbs due to the drop receiver I have a better option for you. The BulletProof Hitches system will allow you to have everything you are looking for with their easy to change removable accessories. First you can select a ball mount system.
