Tow & Stow Adjustable Ball Mount ANTI-THEFT DESIGN
When the Tow & Stow hitch is installed in most receiver hitches, the adjustable arm of the hitch cannot be removed. By locking the hitch to the receiver, the whole hitch is secure.
DOES YOUR HITCH HAVE THE PROPER DROP
Ensure that you have chosen a hitch that provides enough vertical adjustment to allow your trailers to tow as level as possible while providing enough ground clearance.
We recommend a minimum of eleven inches of clearance between the ground and the lowest part of the hitch, see the figure provided.
Without adequate ground clearance, the hitch may hit the ground or other objects such as steep driveways or curbs. Striking any obstacle may cause damage to the hitch that could affect its integrity.
ROTATING THE BALL
STOWING YOUR HITCH
Keep your hitch handy, but out of the way. When you’re not towing, just rotate the hitch under your vehicle, lock the pins, and your Tow & Stow is stowed safely away. Stow in a manner that gives you the most clearance to avoid impacts
KNOW BEFORE TOWING
All of our Tow & Stow hitches are tested for both strength and endurance according to SAE J-684, the latest standard for bumper pulled hitches.
FINDING MANUFACTURER WEIGHT LIMITS
Locate your Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR).
This is the maximum allowable weight of the fully-loaded vehicle. You can find this, most likely, on the sticker inside your driver’s side door.
You should also locate your Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) from your truck manufacturer. This is the maximum allowable weight of the tow vehicle and the loaded trailer including all cargo and passengers. Find this in your owner’s manual or by calling your truck dealer.
And finally, locate your Max Tow Rating. It is sometimes located in the truck owner’s manual or look for it at trailerlife.com/trailer-towing-guides.
B&W recommends that your Vertical Towing Weight Rating (VTWR) for your hitch be no more than 10% of your truck’s Max Tow Rating. Make this calculation: Max Tow Rating x .10 = VTWR
ARE YOU HARD ON YOUR HITCH?
The Tow & Stow is built and tested to provide you with years of towing adventures.
For your safety, follow these guidelines.
• Only use the Tow & Stow for towing a trailer. Never use ropes or chains with your hitch.
• Avoid situations where the Tow & Stow could drag or impact the ground.
• Regularly inspect your hitch for any damage. If you are unsure if your hitch is safe to use, contact us, and we will help.
DON’T WORRY YOUR HITCH WAS MADE RIGHT HERE.
That’s why we treat the manufacture of your trailer hitch with the respect it deserves. For one, we insist on American-made steel, like the sheet steel we buy from U.S. Steel out of Gary, Indiana, or the round bar that becomes the gooseneck ball made at a mill in Norfolk, Nebraska. Where the strength and flexibility of the steel can mean life or death, we trust the U.S. steel mills with their finely controlled processes and specifications we can trust.
A hitch is only as good as the welds holding it together. We insist on making those welds under our roof. And the hard-working, skilled Americans that make the welds do so according to the American Society for Testing and Materials Welding Standards.
Thank you for putting your trust in us
