The Fastway Flash E 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.

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


Comments
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.
Gary B - 03/04/2020


by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

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!



by:

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



by:

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.



by:

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!


Comments
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 haven't towed much with it yet, but so far it's done the job I asked it to do. Being a 10" drop it does get pretty low on my 3" lifted 3500HD with the other ball hanging off the bottom, but that's only because my enclosed trailer has a very low frame/tongue which required the large drop to ride level. I have my reservations about the weight capacity being 18k, but time will tell. So far it's been a good buy.



by:

Very nice product…high quality and fast shipping!



by:

Very nice hitch, it looks great and is light weight.



by:

Looks to be a well made product for the price. Have not used it to tow yet, but adjusts to the height needed and is rates for more than I need so it should work perfectly. A few minor blemishes in the finish but I am not worried about that, I didn’t buy it as an ornament.


Comments
Great! Would definitely purchase this again.

Very fast shipment. Product looks great.

one of best on the internet.



by:

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.


Comments
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.

Everything is fantastic with the hitch. Craftsmanship is Hugh quality and has performed flawlessly. Highly recommend. It’s constantly in the weather and still looks new. Great product

Awesome, strong, lightweight!!! Perfect hitch!!!



by:

Product came sooner than expected. Communications from etrailer.com on the product, options, and delivery were consistent and really added to the easy and enjoyable experience of ordering from etrailer.com.



by:

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.



by:

Perfect for my lifted truck.



by:

etrailer.com has a complete line of products, they quickly processed and shipped my orders for tire chains and drop hitch. Great Customer Service, good pricing, America!



by:

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 etrailer.com got it to me SUPER FAST and were very responsive. Amazing service from etrailer.com I wish every company worked like this one.



by:

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.



by:

We were so impressed with how fast we got our order. When we ordered a 2nd part that was not in stock we got an email asking if we would like to switch one that was almost identical and would ship right away. Their customer service awesome!



by:

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.

  • Adjustable 2 Ball Mount with 10 inch Drop for 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    The best ball mount option we have for what you described is the Flash E-Series Adjustable Ball Mount # FA42-00-2925 which fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch, can do a drop of up to 10 inches, has both ball sizes you mentioned, and has an 18k capacity.

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch hitches part # WS10-25. This gives you the same drop as the Fastway kit, and fits the same hitch size, 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 tongue weight scale built into it as well. This comes with two ball sizes of 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch as well. It's not possible to remove the lower ball from the...

  • Recommended Ball Mount With 2.5 Inch Shank And 14,500 lb Capacity

The Fastway Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 10" Rise - 18K # FA42-00-2925 will give you an 8-7/8 inch distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball.

  • 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,...

  • Comparing Fastway and Weigh Safe Adjustable 2 Ball Mounts for a 2018 Ram 2500 Tradesman
    If you plan on only hauling bigger trailers with your 2018 Ram 2500 then I recommend going with the Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2925 for a few reasons. The first is that it has a higher weight rating than the Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # LTB10-25, and the second being that you can add the lock set # FA86-00-3685 to lock the ball mount and the adjustable ball.

    The ball mount I highly recommend for your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty that has a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver like the Curt # C15802 is the B&W Tow & Stow because of its high quality, stow-away design, and the fact it protects the ball mount platform from theft. The hitch ball platform of this mount actually flips underneath the shank to face your truck, saving you from accidentally slamming your leg into it when walking behind your F-250. Additionally, when the Tow & Stow is in your...
