Flip and stow this pintle hook combo beneath your hitch for a sleek look when you are done towing. Haul up to 16,000 lbs with the pintle hook or up to 10,000 lbs with the 2-5/16" ball.


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


Works great! I use this hitch on a regular basis utilizing the ball on one use and pintle on the other. I often drive over rough terrain pulling a Tucker Terra Sno-Cat or a 50kW genset, this hitch handles the roughness. The universal hitch is optimum when hauling via pintle or ball.

I havent had any problems with the B&W tow hitch a year out. Ive used both ball and pintle towing our new Tucker-Terra and 50kW genset. Its pretty nice not having to switch out hitches.


Great quality as B&W is known for I have purchased 4 of these all from E-Trailer and their service is excellent and enjoy working with them and turn around time doesn't make it worth myself traveling time to store to purchase. Thank You




Pretty slick set up. I'd been looking for the right adjustable height hitch combo and came across this one. The gen y ones looked nice but you are limited to 2" increments with your height adjustment. I had to wait a while for it to come into stock after I ordered it which was the only down fall. Pins are tight. Finish is nice on the product. Adjusts easily in small increments. Very solid. Made in USA. It took the place of 2 balls and a pintle hitch that I carry with me every day. It will save me time, weight, and space in my truck bed.


This was an excellent hitch for our new RV due to the long pivot point. While I use other B&W hitches for my truck I needed the same quality but not the double offset ball design. This design allows for a better departure angle with our RV. Quality is very high and adjustment very sturdy. Cannot recommend another product higher than B&W.


We've ordered our trailer hitches through on several occasions. The process is simple, the prices are the best we've found and we've never had an issue with our order or the product received. When we placed our last order with, there was a delay in shipping. We were notified by phone as soon as the delay was identified by etrailer and also by phone the day our order was shipped. Even with the delay, we received our trailer hitches within 5 days. I highly recommend!


This is a great product. Allows me to go from pintle hitch to ball hitch with no effort. Can raise it up or lower it to fit all of my different trailers.


Product is very versatile and has proven to be a solid addition to our operations. B&W offers exceptional products, and this hitch does not disappoint.


Once agian etrailer nailed it, they delivered quickly without any hiccups. I have several different trailers and with this hitch I can save the headache of switching hitches I would recomend this to anyone in need of a all in one hitch. Built strong, american made and convenient what more can you ask for!!!


Product arrived as ordered, quickly and correctly. Should help with our varying height trailers. Thanks



Thank you for contacting me. The hitch works great for our needs, easy to adjust heights, as we have 1 trailer that sits lower to the ground than all of our other trailers. Its the only hitch we have like that, and we are very happy with it.


The BWTS10056 hitch is a very high quality unit well worth the price! It arrived quickly and it will be the last one you will need to purchas.


really happy with the hitch, adjust easy to different height of trailers we pull.


Good afternoon I found your products to be very good quality and I look forward to putting them through the paces considering I work at a training center. Your service reps were very product knowledgeable and answered all of questions and didn't push me toward something I don't want or need. I look forward to working with you guys again in the near future.


Excellent product, super heavy duty and well built. 35 pounds so that should tell you something.


Great Product and service. We have this hitch on our entire fleet and have no issues. Versatile and heavy duty.


This is a high quality robust hitch. It is made in the USA, which I really like. The workmanship is excellent and it was well-packaged with no damage to the item. I am amazed how fast you shipped it to me.


Great quality and website is user friendly making it a breeze to order.


Beefy. The pintle acts like a step to help get in the truck.



Awesome. As good as the day I bought it...


Awesome service / Item shipped on time


Good stuff.


Fast order shipping at a fair price. Will order from this site again.


Quality, well made and thought out.


Just received this in the mail yesterday looks great well built time will tell as far as performance and durability


Best ever products

  • Towing of B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook Ball Mount # BWTS10056
    It's really hard to say what type of towing capacity reduction you'd have with the lift kit you installed. You'd want to check with the manufacturer of the kit to get the best answer for that. The B and W Tow and Stow ball mount part # BWTS10056 that you referenced has a 16,000 lb capacity with it's 2-5/16 inch ball or 10,000 lb with the 2 inch ball.

  • Can B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook/Hitch Ball # BWTS10056 Be Used as Weight Distribution Hitch
    The shank portion of the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook/Hitch Ball # BWTS10056 cannot be used as a component of a weight distribution system. B&W designed this adjustable pintle/ball combo hitch to offer the flexibility to tow as both a pintle hook/lunette ring and as a hitch ball, but not to serve as a basis for a weight distribution system. My contact at B&W confirmed. We do offer a complete range of weight distribution/sway control hitch systems from Blue Ox and other manufacturers. The...

  • B&W Tow and Stow Pintle Hook Adjustable Ball Mount Hitch Ball Installation
    The B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2" Hitches - 10,000 lbs/16,000 lbs # BWTS10056 uses a 1-13/16 inch socket and needs to be torqued to 450 ft lbs according to the manufacturer. The good news is the hitch ball comes assembled and already torqued to that specification.

  • Will B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook BWTS10055 Work With 3 Lunette Ring?
    I reached out to my contact at B&W and the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2" Ball - 2" Hitches - 10,000 lbs/16,000 lbs # BWTS10055 will work perfectly with a 3" lunette ring. The # BWTS10056 you mentioned will also work with a 3" lunette ring, but has a 2-5/16" hitch ball instead of a 2" hitch ball. Both hitches has a 10000lb towing capacity with the hitch ball, and a 16000lb towing capacity when using the pintle hook portion. I included videos for both of the products for you to take...

  • Why Is The Weight Capacity Different For The 2-5/16" Ball and Pintle On B&W Tow & Stow Hitch?
    The 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # BWTS10052 included with the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook # BWTS10056 is only rated for 10,000lbs. This is the only weight capacity 2-5/16" ball available for this hitch. As the pintle places the weight of the trailer on the entire assembly rather than only being on the ball itself it is capable of the higher rating.

  • 2 Inch Hitch Ball for the B&W Tow and Stow Pintle Hitch Ball Mount
    You can get a 2 inch ball for the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hitch, part # BWTS10056 as part # BWTS10051. This is actually a direct replacement for the 2 inch standard version of your hitch, so your shank diameter and lengths will match up very well. The greaseless balls are all designed (At present) for a single hitch that isn't compatible with your current system, so you'd need to completely replace your existing hitch to swap to greaseless. As far as their "Gimmickness" its just a different...

  • Can Pintle Hook Attachment Be Purchased Separately And Used W/ Standard B&W Tow & Stow?
    I have a replacement option for you, but the B&W Tow & Stow you have with the two hitch balls cannot use the pintle hook attachment due to the shank on the pintle hook version having additional gussets. Instead you will need to purchase the pintle hook version # BWTS10055 with a 2" hitch ball, or # BWTS10056 with a 2-5/16" hitch ball. I included videos for both of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Ball for 18 Foot Eager Beaver Trailer
    For your 1990 18 foot Eager Beaver trailer, I recommend the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball like # 19286. Many of those trailers use a lunette ring, so I recommend using a combination ball mount like the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2" Hitches # BWTS10056 to give you that strength and function.

  • 2 inch Hitch Ball Recommendation for B and W Adjustable Height Pintle Hitch Ball Combo
    Yes you can. If you got the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball # BWTS10056 you could use the # BWTS10051 as a replacement 2 inch ball when you needed it.

  • Can You Purchase a Pintle Hook Adapter for the B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount
    I do have an option for you but there isn't a pintle hook adapter for the B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount. There is however a version of this ball mount which comes with a pintle hook but you can't add just that part to an existing ball mount. The B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook part # BWTS10056 is what you'll need to use.

  • Can B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook Attachment Be Used on 2-Ball Tow & Stow Ball Mount
    This is a really good question. I reached out to my contact at B&W to see if it was possible to use the pintle hook attachment from the B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS10056 with your 2-Ball Tow & Stow like # BWTS10037B and he said unfortunately it cannot be done. He said the pin blocks on the pintle version are reinforced differently so the same component cannot be used with both shanks. They just aren't physically compatible. The only way to have the pintle version Tow & Stow is to obtain the...

  • Can Shank Of B & W Pintle Hook System Be Used With 3-Ball Mount Of B & W System
    It sounds like you want to be able to use the pintle hook mount of the # BWTS10056 with the 3-ball mount that is included with the Tow & Stow, like part # BWTS10048B. I called my contact at B&W and they told me the shank and mount included with the BWTS10056 has a much higher capacity than the BWTS10048B, and they do not recommend using either part with the other system. The 2-5/16 inch ball on the BWTS10048B is the highest rated part of the system but it is not recommended they be used...

  • Is There Pintle Adapter that Fits B and W Tow and Stow Adjustable Ball Mount
    We have versions of the B and W Tow and Stow that come with pintle adapters like you are looking for like with the part # BWTS10056 but we don't have just the pintle section that can be added to the part # BWTS10049B.

  • Will the Pintle Hook/Hitch Ball Combo Fit on a Standard B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount
    I am glad to hear how much you love your B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS10049B. I would be happy to get you a similar pintle hook and hitch ball combo as well but unfortunately it is not as easy as just using an adapter on the one you have now. The reason that this cannot be done is that the shank on the ball mount you have now is different than the one on the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball part # BWTS10056, therefore the pintle hook/hitch ball position of this ball...

  • Using Silencer Pad # BWTS35020 for Tow and Stow with Drop Down Pintle on 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe
    I spoke with my contact at B&W and since the Silencer Pad, # BWTS35020, is a universal product, it will fit differently on each vehicle and some may need to use greater force in order to get the hitch pin holes on the ball mount to line up with those on the hitch. Please keep in mind that the silencer pad installs between the face of the hitch on your 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe and the back of the Tow & Stow. No part of the silencer should be pushed into the hitch receiver opening. I have attached...

  • Is there a B&W Tow & Stow Adjustable Ball Mount with a Pintle Hook
    Yes, there are a couple of Tow & Stow ball mounts from B&W for pintle applications: # BWTS10056 with a 2-5/16 inch ball # BWTS10055 with a 2 inch ball I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • Can Pintle of B&W Tow and Stow # BWTS10056 Be Moved Down to Lock Coupler Onto Trailer Ball
    Due to the thickness of the top of the coupler, you wouldn't be able to lower the pintle all the way when used on a regular coupler. You'd be better off using a coupler lock to prevent the coupler from being unhooked. The best lock for you will depend on the design of your coupler. If you have a latch style, a lock like the Bulldog # BD580403 would be an excellent choice, and could be used while towing.

  • Longest Available Pintle Hook Combo With 2-5/16 Inch Trailer Ball
    The Curt # C48006 pintle hook combo measures 11-3/4 inches from the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. The longest pintle hook combo we offer would be the B&W # BWTS10056 that offers a 12 inch distance between the hitch pin hole and the center of the hole where the 2-5/16 inch trailer ball mounts. The hook has a 16,000 lb capacity, but you'd be limited to the 10,000 lb weight capacity of the trailer ball. I'm sorry to say that we don't offer a 14 inch length pintle hook like...

    On the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2" Hitches - 10,000 lbs/16,000 lbs # BWTS10056, the 4 holes in the unit on the adjustable face give you the most secure options when adjusting. They could include 5 pins and give you that added security, but the 2 pins on the shank and one on the pintle hook portion is enough for the weight capacity and function of the ball mount/pintle. You can get additional pins if you like. They are Replacement Stainless Steel Pin and Clip for...

    The Clevis Adapter part # BWTS35100B that you referenced can be installed on the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10050B that you referenced. However, this adapter is not designed for use with a pintle setup.

    The ball and shank parts of the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook # BWTS10056 and B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS20037B are designed to not come apart, otherwise anyone could just walk up and steal your ball or pintle hook.
