The Fastway Flash Series HD ball mount is strong, durable, and easy on the eyes, making it the best of both worlds. It's solid, aircraft-grade aluminum construction is durable, rust resistant, and sturdy enough to last for years to come. With a polished mirror finish, this ball mount will make any vehicle look fantastic.

The adjustable ball height 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.

Changing Ball Height and Replacing Balls

To adjust the height of the ball, remove the pin so that you are able to slide the ball platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Re-insert the pin once you have found the correct height and replace the clip.

Switching the hitch ball is just as easy. Simply remove the pin holding the ball platform in place and slide the platform off of the shank. Flip the platform upside down so that the ball you want to use is on top. Then slide the ball platform back onto the shank and replace the pin.

Made in USA. Shipping was competitively priced, and there was no hassle. great selection as well


Purchasing this trailer hitch was the best universal ball select trailer puller… high secure trailer hitch…


just got the hitch, and haven't even had a chance to install it and they send an email wanting a review. I didn't realize this hitch doesn't come with a locking pin for the sliding part of the hitch until I opened the box. So I figured ok, I didn't read it very well apparently, I'll go see what those cost. So I clicked the link to this hitch in the email, and find out that the hitch I just ordered 3 days ago, now has a price that's over $xx LESS than what I paid for it. They won't even talk about refunding the difference, just if I want to return it, it will cost me $xx to ship it back.

the normal locking hitch pins you can get at your local auto parts store won't work with this to lock the ball on, because that's 5" wide. I refuse to order anything else from Etrailer ever again, so I'll see if I can make a regular locking hitch pin work by cutting and welding (certified welder) a piece into it. But won't be ordering anything else from this company or this website

I am sorry that you werent able to receive the part for cheaper. Our pricing changes depending on what the manufacturer states the pricing should be. As for a locking pin, you can use part # e98880 for this hitch.


Looks fantastic! Easy to adjust. Works like it should. I would recommend this product.
Only negative would be that I cannot lower my tailgate with this ball mount as it is tighter to the truck than most.
I drive a 2018 Ram 3500

Pros- looks good, lightweight, easy to adjust. I do like it. Cons- it’s loose. It wiggles around in the receiver. The ballmount wiggles around on the adjustable and the ball itself moves on the mount.


A product that turns a pickup into a truck. Darn thing looks so good, I'm not sure I actually want to hook anything up to it. Going to be used to tow travel trailers, horse trailers and a boat. Has the versatility to accommodate all kinds of tongue heights. Due to my 24" receiver height, I had to get the 10" drop to keep things level. I had initially ordered the 6" drop, and when I realized my short sightedness, the customer service team was excellent in helping me return it for the right product. I'll always go to etrailer first for my truck toy needs.


This was a huge upgrade to my previous hitch. The 2 1/2 inch shank is better than my previous 2 inch hitch. It’s better put together, it has wider and heavier parts and the quality is vastly improved. I also love the finish it’s chromed aluminum not polished aluminum like my previous hitch.


Really nicely made. I ground off the tab on the back of the drop so I could install the hitch backwards as I back into parking spots and a hitch that sicks out 6 inches just makes my RAM 3500 longer. Not to mention the times I have ran my shins into the old hitch in the past. Bottom ball has 9 inches of clearance on my stock 2019 RAM 4X4.


i could not be happier with my hitch!! it is a great addition to my truck it makes life alot easier changing different ball sizes with in seconds and i also ordered the the lockset for it very easy to use and no worries for it to get stolen now.The quality of the product is at its finest and the service was the best.I ordered it on wednesday afternoon and by saturday morning it was at my front door with using standard mail and they emailed me to let me know when it was dropped off.


Looks strong. Locking pins should be included. Had to buy separately.


The FA42-00-2925 is a great hitch for the price, I needed the 10” drop to level my one trailer. The finish looks great. The fit is ok, I wish it was a little tighter fit on both the receiver and adjustable slide. I checked other models that were even looser, so went with this one. I didn’t notice any bad rattling from it, I just wish it was a little tighter fit. The one bad thing about it is because I needed the full 10” drop, the bottom ball on hitch would drag when I got in a serve elevation changing condition. If you could remove the bottom ball when not in use, this would completely remove this problem. Other than that it is a great hitch. I also purchased the 2 pcs locking kit for it so it doesn’t get ripped off!

We do offer a weigh safe adjustable ball mount part WS10-25 with a 10 inch . The 2 inch ball and 2 5/16 inch ball are removable and interchangeable with each other. There is not a ball on the underside of ball mount so it will not hit the ground when there is low ground clearance.


I tow two different trailers with this hitch. Very easy to change ball sizes.



I use this mount between my two trailers with different ball sizes. Easy to use.


Very high quality. I am extremely happy with this purchase and etrailer goes above and beyond in service, product knowledge.


Really nice drop hitch. Like how light it is. I ordered the wrong one first and etrailer made it very easy to exchange.


This product is very nice. It's a lot bigger than I first thought. It looks fantastic and it works great. We are towing a Palomino Puma FBC24 toy hauler with a 2014 Ram 2500 Tradesman.
Shipping was fast...couldn't ask for any better service!


Seller communication and delivery speed was excellent. The Drop Ball Mount appears very well made, has highly engineered tolerances, and the chrome finish looks spectacular. I’m anxious to use it soon.


I have had a flash E series 10 inch drop hitch for about a year. It was delivered very fast. It has not rusted at all and has performered very well. I didnt research the drop of 10 inches enough and my hitch has hit the pavement a couple of times going into rises at gas stations. I could have gotten away with an 8 inch for my stock 2500 2018 GMC truck. I am happy with my purchase.


Did my research.....People really liked the quality of this adjustable shank. I considered several but really liked the higher weight rating of this hitch. I was not disappointed....super beefy and really looks great. I really just needed a good quality adjustable drop hitch....But all the less expensive models had much lower weight limits. For a few more dollars I think I got a lot more hitch and as a bonus it looks great too. Always happy with etrailer. I have purchased from several times in the past. Never any drama....Quick shipping and really good contact letting me know it was on it's way. I buy most stuff on other online stores....but if it comes to towing products etrailer is the way to go.

Im as happy today with the hitch as I was the day I got it. Still looks great, no corrosion or rust. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a good quality adjustable height hitch setup.


Very fast shipment. Product looks great.
one of best on the internet.


Great fit, not much movement, looks great as well!


I was looking for a hitch that would do it all and look good doing it. So I decided on the Flash E Series HD 2-1/2" with the 10" drop. So far so good. Great looks and adjustability. Overall I am very pleased with this hitch. If I could change anything about this hitch I would make it a bit smaller. I would also make the fitment of the adjustable portion tighter to eliminate any movement and subsequent clunking while towing. A higher trailer tongue weight rating would be great as well. Also this hitch doesn't come with a pin for the receiver end. For the price that should probably be included. Those are the only downsides that I can think of and they are pretty minor. Don't get me wrong this hitch is very nice!
Of course the folks at got it to me SUPER FAST and were very responsive. Amazing service from I wish every company worked like this one.


Great product. Easy to install and adjust. Had it for a year now and very little sign of rust and corrosion (still looks like new). Used it to pull my Ice Castle fish house, my boat, and snowmobile trailer. Planning on getting a large dump trailer to haul dirt and gravel with it next year. Also got the truck stuck last spring and used the hitch to tug it out of the mud with the tractor. I tugged on that hitch hard too - didn't bend or damage it at all.


Love it! It works As designed and has not corroded or discolored. Used approximately 20 days in the first year. FYI for a 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 the shank can be flipped up and still have the tailgate down without hitting. At the lowest setting and pulling into a steep driveway the bottom ball can drag. I also got the etrailer keyed alike locks so it doesn’t walk off.


Great hitch, no sway like my old setup that used the receiver adapter to go from the 2.5" one in the Ram to the 2" hitch I had. The chromed balls have some rust forming, but that's to be expected.


I bought this draw bar to go with a new truck which has a higher receiver than my previous towing vehicle. I tow various sizes of camper, cargo, and equipment trailers and this draw bar is perfect for quick changes between them - one sits fits all! I also bought the recommend locking pin set and having one key for both is nice. I immediately used this for a 2000 mile towing trip and was completely happy with it.


I have around 2000 miles of towing on the ball mount now.
I like the easy Adjustment and flip over ball.
I think that aluminum is just to soft for a hitch. The ball is loose in the holder after 2000 miles and the ball holder is also worn.

  • Are Fastway Products Made in the U.S.A.
    I have a solution for you, and while most Fastway products are made in the U.S.A. it looks like the steel # FA49-00-5925 was not. Instead, I recommend using the aluminum Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2925 which has a similar 10" rise and drop as well as an 18000-lbs capacity. All Fastway aluminum products are made in the U.S.A.. Since it's made from aluminum it's going to be lighter weight and will stand up better to corrosion over time than the steel version. I've...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Ball Mount For 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty Towing More Than 1 Trailer
    I recommend the Curt Class V Receiver Hitch part # C15802 for the 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty because because it offers more towing capacity than the B & W option and the installation is a bit easier since it is one solid piece that you bolt up to the frame. Since you are towing more than 1 trailer you will need an adjustable ball mount so you can adjust the rise or drop depending on which trailer you are towing. For that I recommend Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2017 Ram 2500 with 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    For what you are looking for the best option is going to be the Flash Simple Heavy Duty 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 10" Rise - 18K # FA42-00-2925. It fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch, a drop of 10 inches - which is what I would go with to cover various height scenarios like you mentioned - and even has a couple ball sizes to give you even more flexibility. To secure it to your hitch use Hitch Lock # 34061072-D.

  • Recommended Ball Mount with Best Ground Clearance and 10 Inch Drop
    The Fastway Flash E Series HD Adjustable Ball Mount # FA42-00-2925 referenced in your question has a distance of 16 inches from the top of the shank to the bottom of the unused hitch ball when set at its lowest position. This will certainly provide some ground clearance issues on your Silverado when going down the driveway. If you are needing a 10 inch drop, a better option as it relates to ground clearance might be to go with a standard ball mount like the Convert-A-Ball # AMSC10. This...

  • Overall Height of the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Balls # LTB10-25
    If you are looking for the total height of the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Balls # LTB10-25 from the top of the shank down to the very bottom it measures 14-1/2 inches. This would have less movement than the # FA42-00-2925, but realistically they both have such a small amount of movement that you wouldn't notice.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2.5 inch Hitch that Doesnt Carry Lower Ball Below Platform
    I have a great solution for you. Check out the Shocker Hitch XRC Cushioned Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch hitches part # SHK94RR. This gives you 7-1/2" drop, so a little less than the Fastway kit, but since it does not carry the extra ball below the ball mount platform you have much better ground clearance. It also comes with a 20,000 pound capacity, so it is higher rated than the Fastway. Unfortunately, it's not possible to remove the lower ball from the Fastway kit you mentioned.

  • Which Fastway Ball Mount For 14,000 lb Trailer
    For a 14,000 lb trailer, you'll need a Fastway ball mount for a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver, as the highest capacity of their ball mounts for a 2 inch receiver is 10,000 lbs. So if you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver, you can use any of the following, depending on the rise or drop you need: - 6" Rise/Drop: Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2625 - 8" Rise/Drop: Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2825 - 10" Rise/Drop: Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount...

  • Is 1-7/8 Hitch Ball Available for the Flash Solid Steel HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount
    I do have some possible solutions for you but unfortunately the Flash Solid Steel HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5925 does not have a 1-7/8" hitch ball attachment. Instead you can use the BulletProof Hitches # HD2510 with the 2-Ball Platform # 358178ball, or the all-in-one B&W Tow and Stow # BW54FR. I personally like the Tow and Stow the most since you have all 3 ball sizes that are very easy to swap out and you can store the ball platform on the backside when not in use. However,...

The only option for that for a similar set up is from B&W: - B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 9" Drop, 9-1/2" Rise # BW54FR - B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 7" Drop/7.5" Rise # BWTS20049B - B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 4-1/2" Drop/Rise...
