Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel 16721 Review

Today we're going to review part number 16721. This is the Curt 10-inch 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate. This will protect your 5th wheel hitch in your 5th wheel trailer when you use this Curt Lube Plate. It's a 10-inch diameter disk that will easily slide onto the kingpin of your 5th wheel trailer and eliminates any messy grease deposits and it will reduce normal wear and tear when you're towing your 5th wheel trailer with your 5th wheel hitch. Again, just to measure the diameter for you. Edge to edge it's going to be right at 10 inches and thickness on it is going to be right at about 3/16 of an inch. Just to show you, here's an example of a .. This is what the kingpin would look like on your 5th wheel trailer.

You just install this onto the kingpin itself and then when this installs into the 5th wheel hitch, it will give you a nice protection between your pin box of your 5th wheel trailer and the 5th wheel hitch itself. You remove it just like that. That should do it for the review on part number 16721, the Curt 10-inch 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate. .

I have never towed a fifth wheel trailer for recreation before. This Curt 10" lube plate takes the mess out of the lubrication that I have used in commercial and industrial application of towing.

Works great! I use a similar product on my tractor trailers and I like these just the same. They are reasonably priced, easy to install and last forever! It’s still very important to grease the jaws and king pin but they really preserve the plate and hitch.

Works great. Don’t have to use grease on face of hitch.

We bought a Curt slider hitch 16516 and base rails with bracket kit. Everything was very well constructed. We were very impressed with the product. We installed everything ourselves after watching the video. We highly recommend watching the video. Everything went together without any problems. Very solid hitch.

The Lube plate has held up well with no signs of wear. It is great to not have a bunch of grease to deal with in the truck bed when we're not hauling the fifth wheel.



- 16721
by:

Arraived as specified. Just need to install it. But these are great to eliminate the grease from the Pin Box if you happen to accidentally rub up against it, don’t have to grease my hitch plate either. Still have to grease the jaws, and functioning parts of the hitch, but there’s no grease spatter/dripped all over the hitch, of bed of my truck. I always keep an extra with the trailer in case it decides to crack from wear. Which is rare. But seen how they aren’t that expensive it’s cheap insurance.



- 16721
by:

Everything was there and in good shape



- 16721

Purchased the lube plate along with a B&W Companion hitch. Super fast delivery and cheaper than I could have purchased it here then free shipping on top of it!



- 16721
by:

Put it on and forget about it. No grease, no mess. In the last year I've put about 8000 miles on this lube plate pulling a large fifth wheel camper. I see no wear, no squeaks, no binding.

  • Troubleshooting Gooseneck Hitch Adapter and Revolution Pin Box on Chevy 3500 Long Bed Truck
    You are correct that there is a conflict in using any gooseneck adapter with a Revolution or Sidewinder style pin box. The rotating turret being further back creates too much movement and torque for the gooseneck hitch. You can simply lock your Revolution pin box by using conical washers and torqueing the 3/4 inch bolts to 210 foot lbs and removing the wedge. That will allow your system to pivot at the hitch and work with your gooseneck and adapter, you just won't have the Revolution's...

  • Which Side of Curt Lube Plate 16721 Faces Pin Box
    Lube plates like the Curt part # 16721 will have a side that says which is supposed to face the pin box. Sometimes it's on a sticker or sometimes it's stamped into the plate. On this plate it's the top side, or the side with the label and UPC on it.

  • Best Lube Plate for Pro Series 5th Wheel Hitch
    According to the manufacturer, the best lube plate for a Pro Series fifth wheel hitch will be 10" in diameter and no more than 3/16" thick. With that in mind the best lube plate for a Pro Series hitch - because it has the exact dimensions mentioned above - is the Curt 10" Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate # 16721. I have added a link to a video review of the lube plate for you to check out as well.

  • Can an 11 inch Fifth Wheel Lube Plate be Used with a Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch
    Sounds like yesterday you were recommended the use of the Curt 10 inch disc part # 16721 with your Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch and now you want to use the # LC286160 instead. There really is no reason you couldn't use the # LC286160. It has the same thickness as the Curt and would just be a little bit larger in diameter.

  • Lube Plate to Use with B&W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    I suggest a 10 inch lube plate on your B&W Fifth Wheel Hitch. The Reese # RP83002 is a great choice. There's also a Curt # 16721. Both will work just fine with your hitch.

    Using a lube plate like the part # 16721 would be a great idea with your Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch part # C16130. The hitches comes with this lube plate but if you were ever in need of replacing it this would be the part number.

  • Is it Possible to Adjust Jaws on Curt Q16 5th Wheel Hitch
    I spoke with my contact at Curt about your Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # C16120, and he said a little play is to be expected in order for the pin to rotate freely. So the jaws should not fit too tightly around the king pin. The jaws are operated by springs. The first time you used your 5th wheel hitch the springs may have been a little stiff. By the second time you used the 5th wheel you likely loosened up the springs and the jaws, resulting in the play you noticed. Also if...

  • Material of 10 Inch Lube Plates for Fifth Wheel Hitches
    Each of our 10 Inch lube plates for fifth wheel hitches are made from nylon, which is going to just as good a job as the graphite lube plates so you don't have to use any grease. The 10 inch lube plates we offer are: - Curt 10" Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate # 16721 - Lube Plate for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10" Diameter # RP83002 I have added links to video reviews of each of these lube plates for you to check out.

  • Excessive Movement Between the Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch and 5th Wheel Trailer King Pin
    First, make sure that the jaws are fully closing around the king pin and that they are locked into place. If not then that would be why you are experiencing so much movement. If they are fully closing and locking then it is possible that the movement is actually coming from somewhere else such as at the connection between the head and the center section or the feet and the OEM Ford mounts. There are some things you can look at on the hitch to determine if the jaws are not fully closing....

  • Lube Plate Recommendation for Use with B and W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch
    For a B&W Companion hitch I recommend using a 10 inch diameter lube plate. We have the Reese Lube Plate, # RP83002, which is my top choice, and the Curt 10 inch Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate, # 16721, both of which will work nicely with your Companion hitch.

  • Best Lube Plate for Fifth Wheel Hitch
    We do have a number of options for a lube plate but we do not carry the Holland FW001 and have limited access to websites outside of the manufacturers of the parts we carry so I was unable to look up this hitch. The best lube plate that will work if you have a 2-7/8" king pin is the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # LC286160 because it installs easily by sliding over the king pin and not only protects your skid plate but also minimizes the noise...

  • Maintenance Procedures for Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch
    We don't offer a video, but that's a great idea that I'll suggest to our shop manager. The maintenance procedures for the Demco # DM8550040 Hijacker Autoslide 5th wheel hitch are outlined in the linked owner's manual, but the keeping the moving parts in the jaw mechanism and the lower guide plates lubricated is crucial. I've provided a diagram showing where to apply grease on the lower guide plates. Demco states that using a lube plate is acceptable as long as it's not thicker than...

  • Why Is My 5th Wheel Hitch Chucking - Making Noise at Start/Stop?
    On all hitches, in all brands, there will be some play forwards and backwards, side to side, and even up/down. If there was not you would hear the awful screeching of metal on metal, similar to weight distribution systems on bumper pull travel trailers. This cannot be avoided. Some people report improvement with lubrication and/or a lube plate, but I do not understand why that should work. I suspect that the capture jaw design may not hold the king pin as tight as other designs. Since...

    For their Companion series of 5th wheel hitches, B&W recommends using a 10 inch lube plate. I'd recommend the # 16721 from Curt. The lube plate would protect the skid on your hitch from getting scratched up, and would eliminate the need to use grease on the skid plate so you won't have a huge mess with grease everywhere.
