The B&W Tow & Stow adjustable ball mount lets you tow a variety of trailers with different tongue heights. Having a 1-7/8" ball, 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.

This is the best built and best looking hitch and pin setup I have ever had. Extremely tight tolerances, functions beautifully; gets lots of comments


I recently purchased a B&W a 7" Drop, Trip Ball Hitch from the factory. I ordered a 3" Reese instead of a 2 1/2" that I needed. Noah and Tammi in Customer Service jumped right on the issue and got me the correct hitch and a quick return/credit for the other one. Couldn't be more happy with the company and the hitch. B&W makes a bullet proof hitch and I will always recommend them. Thank you for all the help, David.


Ordered the 7" drop and it was perfect height for my 2019 F350 4 x 4. Really like it when it's stowed and you don't have to worry about your shins! Super fast shipping and great price from


You're not going to find a better looking hitch on the market. Adjusts with ease as described. Tow and stow feature is a must have. Fast shipping.


WOW! I love the heavy duty construction of this hitch and its versatility. I can’t see ever needing another hitch after this one. The clean looks are the icing on top. Definitely a lot of value for the investment.


Heavy duty. Rock solid. Easy to adjust. Quick shipping


Heavy duty and well made, but I've already had a couple of hitch pin keepers stolen. Once while parked in front of my trailer at a campground and another while in a grocery store parking lot. I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a couple for free. Great service, but definitely something to consider if you're planning to leave the hitch on your truck for any extended period of time (doesn't keep honest people honest). The actual hitch itself works flawlessly and I added two B&W hitch silencer pads to account for some of the hitch receiver play on my 2018 RAM 2500HD.


I love the chrome trailer hitch! It has worked well. In fact my friend saw it and he bought one as well.


Great product!! Installed on 2017 F250. Pins and slides are smooth. No rattling. The hitch sits close in to the receiver making trailer wiring long enough to connect to vehicle. Also made in the USA.


Wife loved her birthday present. Said it was a bit heavy, but I promised to send her to weight lifting classes.
She was pleased that she did not need to polish it when she washed the truck, I told her there better be no finger prints on it when she is done.,not having to hunt for the balls was a big plus.
Great addition to my beautiful Ford 250 .


Truly an excellent product -- American made! Quality is outstanding and I absolutely
believe the statement printed on sturdy box it came in: "The last hitch you will ever need." The craftsmanship is actually a thing of beauty. Stow and Go and triple ball is
perfect for our boat transport service. Superlative!!


Quick shipment/arrival. Fits my Ram 2500 perfectly and love the fact that it can't get stolen. I wasn't really thinking about the hideaway feature (flipping the balls around) when I purchased it, but it's a nice plus!


Etrailer is the one stop shop for anything trailer! Quick, easy, and very helpful.


Love how easy it is to adjust. I pull multiple trailers at different heights and this adjust quickly without tools.


Good solid quality products !!!, and even better.... Made in USA


Still looks good

The BW label is
pealing bad.
But its strong and easy to change out and reposition to hide.

I would recommend this item to all of my buddies.


Great product . Only hitch I will ever but again
. Adjusting is a breeze .


Very heavy duty, excellent quality and looks great on my truck

Great product! Everything I needed.


Great product! Fast shipping! Excellent customer service!

  • Vertical Measurement of B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch

  • Will B&W Tow & Stow With 7 Inch Drop for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Work on 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    The 7" Drop/7.5" Rise of the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount won't be too much for your 2016 Ford F-250, and since you value versatility, it will actually be a really useful option. When we installed this exact ball mount on a 2020 Ford F-250 (which is the same generation as your 2016), there were no issues with it being potentially too low, and if you'd like to see for yourself I have added a link below to that video review. We have also had a number of customers leave reviews stating that...

  • Does the B&W Tow & Stow for GM MultiPro Tailgate Come in Chrome
    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for the GM MultiPro Tailgate is only made by B&W with the black powder coat finish as part # BWTS20067BMP. If you don't have the GM MultiPro Tailgate then you can use the Chrome B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS20049C which has the same specs but doesn't have the design to accommodate the MultiPro Tailgate.

  • Best B&W Tow & Stow for a 2018 Ford F-350
    In order to find out how much of a drop you need to look for in a ball mount, you will need to measure from the ground to the top of the inside edge on your trailer hitch and then from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler on your trailer while level. If you subtract the trailer height measurement from the hitch that will give you the amount of drop you need to look for in a ball mount. I recommend doing this for both trailers. Please note that the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount...

  • Locking Pin Recommendation for B&W Tow & Stow Tri-Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    We do have locking pins for you to use with the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS20049C! The B&W Tow & Stow ball mounts actually just need a locking hitch pin to secure everything to your hitch receiver but I completely understand if you'd like to add locks for the vertical and hitch ball adjustment pins as well. For a single locking pin use part # 34061072-D but if you want a set of 4 you'll need part # 34061775-D instead. Attached are some review videos for you to check out as well.
