An illustration shows the eleven inch clearance level needed between the ground and B and W Tow and Stow hitch.

Note: To avoid the Tow & Stow hitting steep driveways or curbs, we recommend at least 11" of clearance between the ground and the lowest point of the drop hitch, as seen above.

The B&W Tow & Stow adjustable ball mount lets you tow a variety of trailers with different tongue heights. Having both a 2" ball and a 2-5/16" ball allows for even more versatility, making this the ultimate go-to ball mount if you own multiple trailers.

Easily Adjusts and Stows

B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount Operation

To switch the hitch ball, simply remove the pin holding the balls in place and rotate the entire block that the balls are mounted on until the ball you want to use is on top. Then replace the pin to secure the block in place.

Adjusting the height of the ball is just as easy. Remove the pins holding the ball mount platform in place and slide the platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Once you have found the correct height, reinsert the pins and replace the clips.

When you're not towing, you can flip the ball mount platform around and stow it beneath your hitch so that you won't bang your shins. Just remove the pins to slide the ball platform down along the channel and up the back side so that the hitch balls face towards your vehicle. Then replace the pins.

Built-In Anti-Theft System

The Tow & Stow ball mount features a channel that runs along both sides of the shank. This channel not only allows you to slide the ball mount platform up and down to adjust the ball height, but it also prevents removal of the platform when the ball mount is installed, which will help prevent theft of your trailer.

Single Dimensions

A slot is cut into the adjustment channel near the top of the shank. To remove the ball mount platform from the shank you will need to remove the entire ball mount from your hitch. Then remove the pins that hold the platform in place. Slide the platform up to the top of the shank and line the center pin up with the slot in the shank. Push the platform in towards the rear of the shank until the pin pops out of the adjustment channel.

When the Tow & Stow is secured in your hitch receiver, you will not be able to remove the ball mount platform. This is because the slot in the shank is positioned in such a way that the collar on your hitch will block the pin on the platform from being able to leave the channel. Even if the pins holding the ball mount platform in place are removed, the platform will still be confined to this channel. So, as long as a hitch lock is used to secure the entire ball mount in your hitch receiver, and a coupler lock is used to prevent your trailer's coupler from being disengaged from the ball, your trailer will be secure.

Perfect drop for my lifted truck, feels solid. Documentation indicates use only B&W pins but I purchased locking pins. Hope they are within specs.


Great quality and speedy service

Mike C.


It has held up very well. Great quality product.


etrailer always seems to have what I need in stock ready to ship. I mainly use etrailer because they offer UPS shipping which I always have the best luck with.


I couldn't wait to get this hitch on my truck. I pull my horse trailer and everything is smooth and level. I gave my other tow n stow hitch to my husband after I received this one. I won't use anything else.....its so easy to use and it just makes sense! Thank you for a wonderful product.

Stephanie R.


Absolutely perfect!


Well worth the money, I have scraped it on a strap driveway by accident and it did not even bend. Took a grove out of the pavement but the hitch looks new. Adjustability is killer.


Great product, a friend has one of the same is why I switched to it, I have a bunch of trailers and am using different ones all the time, so to not to have to pull it all the way off to change balls is awesome.
Highly recommend this product.

Dann M.


I love the product, although I have bent one of my pins because of extreme use, pulled a stump well jerked it out But I love the product, the best I’ve ever had hands down, and I pull a lot of trailers. Weekly.


Great product fast service. Thank you!


Great product, great customer service, free shipping and the lowest price anywhere and I mean anywhere! Needed the 9” drop on my new F-350, it’s also equipped with the B&W Companion OEM. The wife’s F-150 is also equipped with the 3” drop B&W tow and stow. B&W products will not let you down and neither will etraler.


Thanks very much for the follow up. To date we have reduced our trailering, not due to the receiver. The times we have utilized the tow and stow has been without issue as it is a very nice unit and I'm glad to have it as a tool in my garage.

I admit your company is among the few if not singular business that has contacted me regarding a purchase after a year. Quite a unique service and speaks very well of your business and management.


Quality all around !!! No rattle , very well made , great design .



After a year of use it still looks great and works great. Worth every penny !


Tow bar well made and packaged well. Package of enclosed grease burst and made a mess though,


A good quality and strong built hitch!! Thanks to for there prompt shipping and service, it arrived when it was expected!!


This product turns out to be as good as it gets. I was hesitant to order as I considered it to be a significant investment. But the quality, durability and flexibility actually far exceeds my expectations. In just a moment I can, very easily, change the ball size, the height or put it in a stow position. I highly recommend it.


Received trailer hitch appears in great shape. Will install and write a follow up review. So far doing an excellent job.


Arrived very quickly and in good condition. I was notified every step of the way. Good solid customer service!


Great product! Love the option of settings on Hight. This product is worth every penny.


Great product, very beefy and sturdy. It is also easy to set at different heights and turn around to the inside so you dont hit your shin on it. I wouldnt hesitate to buy another if the need arises.


Great product and exactly what I wanted. Really fast delivery


Arrived super fast. Love it




received 1 day after ordered. great job.


The last hitch you’ll ever need



Great product

  • How is Rise/Drop of B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount Measured
    The rise and drop are measured from the top of the shank down to the top of the ball platform as shown in the photo I've provided for you. If the ball mount in the photo had the ball platform in the lowest available position, the drop would be 9 inches. To determine what rise or drop you need, measure from the inside top of your hitch receiver tube to the ground. Then, measure from the underside of your trailer coupler to the ground. The difference between the two measurements is the...

  • What is Distance from Center of Pin Hole to Center of Hitch Ball on B and W Tow Stow BWTS10043B
    There are two pin holes on the B and W Tow and Stow ball mount # BWTS10043B that you referenced. Each has a different distance from the center of the pin hole to the center of the hitch ball. Hitch pin hole closest to ball: 10-1/4" Hitch pin hole farthest from ball: 11.384" That B and W would not recommend attaching a sway control tab to the side of the ball mount platform so we can't recommend that.

  • Do I Have to Insert Both Pins to Use the B&W Tow and Stow 2 Inch Adjustable Ball Mount?
    Thanks for the picture! The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount item # BWTS10049B requires both pins to be inserted in the adjustment slots. Without both pins you won't have enough support for the ball mount to function correctly. It sounds like you are needing some extra drop. The B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount item # BWTS10043B will give you 9" of drop over the item # BWTS10049B 7".

  • Recommended B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount for New Truck that is 4 Inches Lower
    The B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 9" Drop, 9-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10043B is the deepest drop B&W Tow and Stow offers. If you need a 4 inch shorter option, then I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10037B. B&W does not offer just the replacement shank for their ball mounts. I've linked the page to all the replacement options they have for these ball mounts.

  • How to Choose the Right Rise or Drop Ball Mount to Tow Trailer Level without Knowing the Trailer
    Any time you are not sure what rise or drop you might need to tow a trailer level it is a good idea to use an adjustable ball mount. The same goes for the ball size needed though most trailers in the sizes you are looking at will have a 2-5/16 inch ball but possibly a 2 inch ball. Since you mentioned that your 2007 Ram 1500 is perhaps a little higher than most, so a 9 inch drop model, such as # BWTS10043B, would be a better choice in this scenario. There is no need to wait until you have...

  • B and W Tow and Stow Ball Mount Recommendation for Truck with 6 inch Lift and 37 inch Tires
    For a truck with a 6 inch lift and oversize tires like your Tundra I'd go with the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10043B which can do up to a 9 inch drop as your truck is going to be sitting pretty high. I attached a help article on determining drop for you to check out. If you end up needing a much different drop let me know and I can see what would be best option.

  • Recommended Front Hitch Receiver for 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    This Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch Receiver, # 65064, is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Silverado 1500. This hitch receiver has less of a drop than other front mount hitches for your vehicle, but it will still be very close to the ground. I would be concerned about speed bumps, but it will work. This receiver will require removing or removing a section of the air dam. You will need a fairly significant rise on your ball mount to move your trailer into position, but I'm sure you've already...

We also have a ball mount with a 9 inch drop part # BWTS10043B. Depending on the drop you needed, I recommend these comparable ball mounts to the # BWTS10037C you referenced.

  • How Much Does the B&W Tow and Stow BWTS10043B Weigh?

To avoid removing and reinstalling this ball mount after you're done using it I recommend the InfiniteRule Locking Pins for B & W Tow and Stow item # 34061775-D. These locking pins will prevent your ball mount from being stolen. This is a pretty heavy duty ball mount for a golf cart. I have linked our entire selection of 2" ball...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount and Hitch Lock for 2013 Ford F-350 Crew Cab

This will work well on your 2013 Ford F-350 Crew Cab with 6 inch lift as long as your trailer height will allow you to tow level. Because you have the 6 inch lift, I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 9" Drop, 9-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10043B instead.

I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 9" Drop, 9-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10043B to give you the same functions but the drop needed to account for your lift.

First, make sure both your vehicle and trailer are parked on level ground; you'll then want to measure from the ground to the top of the inside of your hitch receiver. Next, measure from the...

This ball mount has a 10k capacity and can do a similar amount of drop at 9-1/2 inches. What's really nice about this ball mount is that the ball platform can be easily flipped around to the other side of it's shank when not in use so that it is out of the way.

The first thing that you can do is install another hitch that is rated for higher towing capacities. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14016 is a Class IV hitch, which has a 10,000 lbs Gross Towing Weight (GTW) and 1,000 lbs Tongue Weight (TW).

Then for a hitch ball to fit the platform you'd need the part # 63845 for a 2 inch ball.

It comes with a reversible 2" and 2-5/16" ball to match with multiple trailer couplers.

    The only internal pieces that are replaceable on a Diversi-Tech ball mount are the lock cores like what you mentioned with part # DTLBM02RK.

You can use a direct replacement like part # DTALBM6800 which fits a 2" hitch receiver and has an 8" drop and 9" rise, but I recommend going with an upgrade like the B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS10043B...

    It sounds like you want a fixed style ball mount. For that, I recommend the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 8-3/4" Rise - 10" Drop - 8,000 lbs # AMSC10. This will give you the drop needed plus a little to allow the trailer to sit slightly forward instead of slightly raised which allows for better tracking and sway control than the latter. This also has a built in cushion for comfort. You will also need the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40007 or # 40038. If you want the level towing...
