Ball mount shank showing pin in lowered positionBall mount shank showing pin in raised position

This Fastway Solid Tow adjustable ball mount provides solid, rattle-free towing performance. A stainless steel pin, operated by the included hex tool, extends out from the shank and tightens the ball mount in your receiver.

Ball mount shank showing platform-to-leg bolt

To further eliminate any movement, a bolt in the side of the ball platform tightens the connection between the platform and the adjustment shank. As a result, you'll enjoy a quiet, rattle-free towing experience.

Ball mount shank showing ball-to-platform bolt

The ball platform is connected to the adjustment shank by the hex bolt located in the front of the platform. To change the ball height, simply loosen both the bolt in the front and the bolt in the side of the platform with the included tool. This will release the ball platform and allow you to slide it up and down. Or, you can slide the platform off and reverse it to change the ball size.

Video Transcript for Fastway Flash Solid Steel Adjustable Ball Mount Review

Hey everybody, how's it going Today, we're going to be going over and showing you the line of Fastway FLASH Solid Steel adjustable ball mounts. So first things first, hitch size compatibility. So the FLASH Solid Steel is actually offered in a few different versions. There is a couple of different options for the two inch hitch, is what we have here on our half ton truck. But there's also a few other options as well for the two and a half inch hitch on some of your larger three quarters a ton and one ton trucks. So the FLASH Solid Steel is what is known as an adjustable ball mount.

So why do we want an adjustable ball mount Well, the simple reason behind this is it's going to allow us to tow a number of different trailers. So traditionally, we're picking a ball mount, we need to make a couple of measurements on both our truck and trailer and then we choose a fixed ball mount that's going to allow those two to tow to each other level. Now with an adjustable ball mount here, we don't have to worry about that specific setup. It gives us a little bit more room for error, especially if we have multiple trailers. We're going to be covered, we don't have to worry about measuring each time.

We're going to have a nice convenient package here that can tow pretty much any trailer. So in addition to hitch size configuration, we're also going to have two different models within each of these hitch sizes. We have the model here which offers up to a six inch drop, and there's also another version that's a little bit longer that offers up to a 10 inch drop. So you may be thinking that you would just go with the larger one, even though you don't quite know your exact measurements for your trailers. However, you need to be careful when doing that because you don't want a ball mount, or a shank rather that's too long and they could cause issues with bottoming out.

So it'd be a good idea to measure your particular setup and choose the one that allows you to tow the widest range of trailers. So if you're not sure how to measure for rise and drop, it's super easy. What we need to do is measure the distance from the ground to the top inside edge of the trailer hitch, and then we need to measure the distance from the ground to the bottom edge of our coupler while the trailer is leveled. So the difference between those is going to give us our correct rise and drop. If the hitch sits up higher than the coupler, we're obviously going to need a drop.

Whereas if the hitch sits lower than the coupler, we would need a rise. And the great thing about this system here is it can be used in both the drop and rise configuration. So in addition to being adjustable, we really get the complete package here with this ball mount system. And what I mean by this is, not only can we adjust the height there to suit our trailer and allow us to tow level, we also have a couple of different hitch ball options too, depending on what size coupler our trailer has. Now, the two most common are going to be two inch and two and five 16th inches. And if those are what our trailer has, we're not going to have any issues at all coupling it to this fall mount, because we could easily flip this around and choose between one of those two hitch ball sizes. So, there's several different adjustable ball mounts on the market. This certainly isn't the only one. However, there are a few things that I feel this one does really well. Number one, it's not an aluminum ball mount. So although it does have some weight to it, that's actually going to play in your guys' favor in that it's going to be super durable. So ball mounts are definitely one of the more abused items here on our towing setup. I mean, we're obviously hitting our coupler on it. We could bash things into it. You know, whether we miss our coupler or coupling, or we're just kicking it walking by, it's definitely going to hold up for time to come due to that solid steel construction. We also have a nice durable black powder coated finish as well, which will protect it from rust and corrosion. You won't have any issues with weight capacity using this particular setup. The highest rate of weight capacity for the two inch version is going to be 12,000 pounds. And then for the two and a half inch version, it's going to be 20,000 pounds. So we shouldn't have to worry about exceeding those capacities by any means. So in regards to what's included with our setup here, we're going to get the actual shank, we're going to get the ball platform. Now keep in mind, the hitch balls are actually welded to the ball platform so you don't need to worry about tightening those down. And then we're going to get two adjustment pins here. Therefore, you will need to pick up a hitch pin in order to attach it to the vehicle. Now I would actually recommend go ahead and getting a locking hitch pin set up. It comes with two locking hitch pins, we sell this here at etrailer. And what this allows you to do is, it provides an extra measure of security for your ball mount. We can use one of the locks to secure the shank to the trailer hitch, and then we can use one of the other locks to secure the ball platform to the shank. Now we don't actually need two locking pins for the adjustments, we just need one to hold that ball mount and to hold the ball platform on the actual shank. And that's going to do it today for our look at the line of Fastway FLASH Solid Steel adjustable ball mounts..

Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls - 2.5" Hitch - 8" Drop, 9" Rise - DTSTBM6825

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (204 Customer Reviews)

Switch easily between trailers with this adjustable, aluminum ball mount. Go from an 8" drop to a 9" rise. Tow up to 8,000 lbs with the 2" ball and up to 10,000 lbs with the 2-5/16" ball. Solid-Tow system prevents rattling.

This is a solid well built aluminum ball mount but, on a 2015 dodge 2500 class 5 receiver the anti-rattle pin on the ball mount only catches 1/4 of the round pin in the receiver tube. The hole for the locking pin is close to the end of the tube of the receiver on the truck, so the ball mount sticks out in the receiver tube (in my opinion) too much for this to work as it was intended. Etrailer said it should work in there opinion but when you spend over 200 dollars for a ball mount it should work as intended and not "it SHOULD be fine?" Will be contacting Diversi-tech as well. etrailer is great a place to order from and quick shipment as well!

- DTSTBM6825

Seems to be great quality. The no rattle feature is awesome…I hate anything that rattles. I have not pulled with it and haven’t owned it long enough for five stars. etrailer is excellent!

- DTSTBM6825

Diversitech Solidtow ball mount is what I expected, No rattling or movement at all. The finish is good. Two detractors, 1; the receiver tension pin on the top of the shank doesn't go all the way into the 2.5" receiver on my F250 but about half way, it still secures the hitch well and 2; the S/S sleeve adapter interfered with the hitch pin, I needed to grind the inside edge (of the adapter) to let my locking hitch pin go all the way through. The lower ball is fairly low at the 8" drop position. etrailer has a good price, free shipping and it was delivered two days after I ordered it. Satisfied with the product and service.

- DTSTBM6825

I love the non rattle feature of this hitch, and even though this is a minor detail it has notches where each adjustment is, no more trying to see where the lock is going. Great hitch.

- DTSTBM6825

as describe. great product. great price.

- DTSTBM6825

The hitch is very well made. Expect to get years of service put of it...and more importantly it won't rust solid into my receiver like my last one did!!

- DTSTBM6825

Review from a similar Solid Tow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

I purchased this hitch to pull my pontoon and utility trailer and needed it to be adjustable for the different trailer heights. I also wanted a hitch that had a feature to remove the play in the hitch which helped reduce sway in the trailers. It also eliminates clunking when stopping and accelerating. It is a very nice, well made heavy duty hitch and is easy to adjust with the notches on the hitch to let you know where you are at.

Review from a similar Solid Tow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

Needing at least an 8" drop I ordered the 10" drop to be sure I had enough leeway for adjustment in case my vehicle was heavily loaded with gear. The anti-rattle feature is what really made me choose this hitch. I'll be towing a boat 7,000 miles this summer and did not want to hear any squeaks and eliminate anything that could contribute to trailer swaying. In order to be sure the anti-rattle pin would make contact with my receiver I inquired with both the manufacturer and etrailer. Fastway customer rep said the distance was 3-1/2" and Etrailer said it was 2". Needless to say when it arrived it measured 2" which is perfect for my 2016 Suburban. You may want to double check with etrailer on the 2" measurement before ordering in case the manufacturer has modified the design. While the anti-rattle pin does eliminate up and down motion a little left to right movement remains. I may fabricate a narrow shim to eliminate all movement but at this time I do not think it will be necessary. Since I am using this on what is almost the lowest height setting with the 2" ball the 2-5/8" ball is just 10 1/4" above the ground. The hitch balls are not removable from the sliding mount therefore you either have to be careful not to bottom out or for more clearance Fastway said I could cut the 2-5/8" ball off the mount. This would make the ground clearance 12-1/4" off the ground. As others have stated it is a beautiful piece of hardware and looks really sharp. I will likely leave on on permanently with a BOLT trailer hitch receiver lock. (Be sure to order the correct one!). Leaving it permanently mounted has one benefit- I think drivers from behind will be more wary of stopping too close and rear ending you and if they do rear end you at a slow speed it will absorb a bit of the impact thereby minimizing damage to your vehicle. Thank you for such excellent service and I highly recommend them for your hitch needs.

Review from a similar Solid Tow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

Excellent product. I installed on my 2014 Ram 1500 and the anti rattle pin was completely inside the receiver unlike what some of the other reviews show. There is absolutely no rattling. I believe the part number is diversitech, but this is in fact a fastway flash ballmount. As always, quick shipping from etrailer and the best price I've seen anywhere.

Review from a similar Solid Tow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

First of all, it’s beautiful; fit and finish is as it should be for the price. No rust stainless hitch ball ends are great. I use this on a Chevy Silverado 1500 with the max tow package pulling a 24’ 5800 lb. boat on an aluminum trailer. It pretty much is one position so I can’t say how quick and easy it is to routinely change from one ball size to the other or hitch height, but I can tell you that it all works flawlessly. The only downside is that it’s heavy so storing it in a foldaway tool box in my truck bed is fine but it’s a load. In use it never rattles or shakes and it’s because of the clamping lock. But that can only be used in dropped position, which is how I use it. If you need a great multi ball unit that looks and works really well, this one is for you.

After a year I don’t find that I need to take advantage of the adjustability as I did when I first bought it. The anti-rattle device still works great and barring a good size scar from someone backing into it at some point the one time I left it place during the week it still looks great and works great. I pulled out tools from my storage bin so while it’s still heavy keeping it in the bin is no longer a problem.

Review from a similar Solid Tow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

Great looking adjustable hitch. I purchased the non-locking version because locks and similar mechanisms seem to have issues due to salt and ice here in MN. Not sure if the locking version would have issues, but I didn't want to take the chance. Hitch is easy to adjust, seems very strong, and looks great.
