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. Flip the platform around to the stowed position on the rear of the shank, and then slide it up until the center pin lines up with the slot in the shank. Pull the platform out 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.

Buying process was easy and secure. Shipping was SUPER quick. Packaging was perfect. Love everything about this hitch. Well worth the money!!!!!


Comments
Love it. I’m a landscaper and wouldn’t want to operate without one. It’s super convenient when swapping my trailers out and the pins and swivel is heavy duty. Worth every penny.

Only issue is the bar (vertical) could be put in higher position when not being used, if hit low spot it could hit or drag


Comments

The B&W Tow & Stow is excellent. Very good quality and the chrome finish is great. etrailer was excellent to purchase from and the shipping was very fast. They also have updated shipping info to let you know exactly where your product is during the shipping process. I will definitely use them for future purchases.

I use this product on a 2021 F-350. This setup has not left my truck since the day I bought it.




by:

The service and delivery time was top notch and excellent.......only a couple of days to delivery. This hitch is something else.........total quality and extremely well made. It is for my 2019 Ford F250 Superduty. I looked at both the standard black hitch and this chrome hitch. For the small price difference it was a great buy. The chrome is top notch and all the important metal surfaces are polished extremely well. With the ball tucked away under the hitch, it looks and works great.

Thanks etrailer for your service

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great price and fast shipping. However the hitch is very loose in the receiver. I’ve never had a hitch wobble like this one does. I guess I’ll have to order something to correct that.


Comments
It sounds like your ball mount might be a bit too small. If you measure the inside to inside of the hitch receiver, we can confirm the exact size you need. We do have part # BLU79XR, that would fit a 2.5 inch hitch, but I would like to double check and make sure that this ball mount will actually fit your application.

I have a 2.5 receiver on my 2015 F350 Super Duty. I do have the 2.5 to 2 adaptor to accept the 2 hitch, but I suspect the adaptor only amplifies the sloppy fit. I tried my old BW hitch with has a shorter and its just as loose, but I never noticed it as much because the is much shorter.

I have noticed in your picture that you actually have the 3 inch OEM hitch with the adapter sleeves that are provided when purchasing larger trucks. We do have some safe application options for you. We have a 3 inch ball mount with a 7 inch and 7.5 inch rise, part # BWTS30040B

. This will prevent you from needing to use adapter sleeves at all. We also offer a hitch receiver immobilizer for 3 inch hitches, part # BLU85QR

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


First and foremost etrailer is awesome. Secondly they should pay me for the information and pictures I'm going to include. The B&W hitch # TS10065BMP (BW29FR) works with the Multi Pro tailgate on the GMC and Chevy 1500 pickups. I was ready to return it after talking to Bailey because it didn't do what I wanted. I like to have my hitch in tow position to ward off all of the idiots that want to rear end you. This wards off the majority with a little intimidation. The hitch needs to be pushed over the receiver into the recess to work! Then in the lowest position rotate the balls and nirvana! See Photos! Balls out!!

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


New buy but they seem to be well built. I like that the lock screws into the pin as opposed to the assembly that latches on (I’ve seen video where those can be forced off).


Comments
Highly recommended. I bought locking pins so that i can keep it mounted 247. Would buy this product again. Very sturdy, well worth it.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Sent the wrong hitch in a box that was obviously opened previously. I paid for newz NOT an open box. Hitch is filthy, and is for a 3" receiver, NOT a 2 1/2". Will have to cancel my trip this weekend as a result. Thanks for nothing.

Thanks for reaching out. I have sent your information along to our customer service team.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


After doing some research and trying to figure out what style and brand of ball mount to get…..I settled on this B&W product. Its nice to have the ability to adjust your ball mount for different trailers just in case you need to. Being a machinist, I found that this was very well made……no burrs anywhere, clean welds, very nice powder coat finish and packed in heavy duty cardboard to prevent hopefully no issues with shipping.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Really well made. All parts are machined. The fit and finish is very nice. It easily transforms from the usable position to a tucked away position. It's more than what I though I purchased

Awesome product & service. We have B & W adjustable hitches installed on all of our trucks. As we tow various trailers with various trucks these hitches are the ticket, best ever made & excellent quality.
Awesome job on etrailers service, wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Our GOTO hitch for all our high profile trucks. We have several different B&W hitches.
Purchased this hitch 15-20 years ago... NEVER disappointed, never a failure. Bequeathed this older hitch (she didn't want a new one?) to my oldest daughter, she had always wanted this one for her truck. She said IT had been "TOW" tested to the extremes.
A NEW Ford F250 required a new hitch. THIS B&W is the one we use for our 7K GTW (Gross Trailer Weight), bumper-pull travel trailer. It has a 10k working limit, but a safety factor is built into this hitch. We have used this hitch with a 12k GTW (Gross Tongue Weight) on the farm, for a short tow (less than 10 miles) on many occasions, but it's NOT recommended!!!
One must be aware, when in the drop position the hitch can drag (again, NOT recommended!) on a low departing rise, but it can handle it (depending on your receiver). I have (slowly) backed into rocks that jarred the truck to a stop, but no issues with this B&W.
I normally rate my product reviews with 4 Stars to leave room for improvement. This B&W hitch gets 5 STARS!
Purchase ANY B&W hitch and you will NEVER Regret you did.


Comments
Nothing I can add to a one year review. The original comment leaves nothing out. Like others have said, a hitch lock is a necessary insurance investment!

  • Weight Capacity of B&W Adjustable 2-1/2-Inch Ball Mounts BWTS20040B & BWTS20040C
    With a multi-ball adjustable ball mount like the B&W # BWTS20040B and the similar chrome-finish model # BWTS20040C, both intended for 2-1/2-inch hitches, the weight rating depends on which of the hitch balls is in use. As you might expect, the larger ball will have a higher weight rating. The 2-inch hitch ball is rated for 7500-lbs towing and the 2-5/16-inch ball is rated for 14,500-lbs. Either ball mount can be used along with a locking pin # C23025.

  • How To Choose Between 5" and 7" Drop B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount for 2.5" Hitches
    I would love to help but I can't really tell you if you need the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount with 5" Drop part # BWTS20037B (part # BWTS20037C) or 7" Drop part # BWTS20040B (part # BWTS20040C) as it varies by application so you will need to measure for yourself. The measurement you're looking for is the distance from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver on the truck minus the distance from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on the trailer while level. You'll then want...

  • Pin Lock to Secure B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount BWTS20048B
    You can lock your B&W Adjustable Ball Mount # BWTS20040B using their matching 2-1/2-inch hitch lock # C23025. This pin lock also fits their chrome ball mount # BWTS20040C.

  • Tongue Weight Ratings of the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS20040C
    The tongue weight ratings of the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS20040C are 10% of the towing weights. So for the 2" ball with the 7,500 lb towing weight it is 750 lbs and with the 2-5/16" ball with the 14,500 lb towing weight it is 1,450 lbs. I do recommend using the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # C23025 with this to discourage someone from running off with it. The ball mount part is actually in a channel so when the shank is locked in your hitch receiver the ball mount part can't be removed.

  • What Size B and W Tow and Stow Ball Mount Can Fit TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension
    The hitch opening at the end of the TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension # TLE1636 is a 2-1/2 inch hitch with an optional sleeve reducer that brings it down to 2 inch. Basically all hitch extenders like this take and reduce the hitch size down to the next smallest size so while there isn't a solution that's exactly what you are looking for you could go with a 2.5 inch hitch Tow and Stow like part # BWTS20040C and you'd be set.

  • Will Brophy Ball Mount Tongue Fit B&W Tow & Stow for Clevis Attachment
    The 10K Ball Mount Tongue for Brophy Adjustable Drop Hitch # RTB1 won't fit on a B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount like part # BWTS20040C because the brackets where it mounts are too narrow. The Tow & Stow opens up wider than the shank where the Brophy part has an opening the same size as the shank (which is for a 2"). The Clevis Adapter for B&W Tow & Stow 2-1/2" Ball Mounts # BWTS35200B will do just fine for most towing as the hole is only 1-1/8" in diameter. If you plan on traveling at higher...
