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. .

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. 733997

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. 501426

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. 698533

Ask the Experts about this Curt Accessories and Parts

  • How To Choose the Correct Lube Plate
    Generally speaking, the lube plate will need to cover the skid plate on the 5th wheel hitch. There are some pin boxes out there that will recommend a specific lube plate but most of the times this classification will be from the 5th wheel hitch manufacturer. The two most common sizes for a lube plate in regards to diameter are, 10" and 12". However, most of the time the 5th wheel hitch manufacturer will call for a certain thickness so you will need to check this as well in your owner's...

  • 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.

  • Lube Plate Recommendation for a B and W Companion Hitch
    The proper size Lube plate for use with the B and W Companion hitch is a 10 inch diameter lube plate. We carry two lube plates this size. The Reese Lube Plate for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 inch Diameter, item # RP83002, and the Curt 10 inch Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate, item # 16721, will both work with your Companion hitch nicely.

  • Lube Plate Recommendation for Curt Q20 Fifth Wheel 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 Recommended to Use a Lubrication Plate with B and W Fifth Wheel Hitches
    For all fifth wheel trailer hitches, lubrication is important to keep working parts in order and allow your fifth wheel hitch to turn properly. B and W recommends lubricating the top surface of your fifth wheel hitch coupler with automotive type chassis grease or use a nylon lube plate to provide a lubricated surface. I recommend the Curt 10" Fith Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate # 16721. This lube plate will fit with your B and W Fifth Wheel Hitch # BWRVK3270 and will protect your fifth...

  • Which Lube Plate For Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch
    Demco does recommend using a lube plate that is not thicker than 3/16" or grease on the skid plate of the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550034 for protection and easier hook up of your pinbox. I recommend going with the Curt Lube Plate # C16722 which is 12" x 3/16" to ensure the whole skid plate is covered opposed to the Curt Lube Plate # 16721 which is only 10" x 3/16". I included a video of the Curt # C16722 for you to take a look at.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Why Does the Lube Plate Fall Off My Trailer
    The Buyers Products Fifth Wheel Lube Disk Steel Retention Clip part # 337FWRC is designed specifically for Buyers Products Fifth Wheel Lube Disks like part # 337FWD24 which have a circular indentation where the kingpin goes which holds the retention clip in place. I have attached a photo of this for you as well. These lube plates are also designed for much larger commercial trailers and would not work well on a recreational 5th wheel. If the lube plate you have now will not hold around...

  • Does Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Hitch Need Lube Plate With Rota-Flex Pin Box
    Although it is not necessary to use a lube plate with your Demco Hijacker # DM8550035 Autoslide 5th wheel hitch because you should be using the Demco Hijacker Autoslide Capture Plates for Trailair Rota-Flex Pin Boxes # DM6171, you can use the 10" Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate # 16721 if you want to more easily allow the king pin to slide into the hitch.

  • Lube Disk Recommendation for Use with B and W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch
    For a B&W Companion hitch like the part # BWRVK3600 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. B and W recommends the use of a lube plate so we also recommend it.

  • Replacement Lube Plate for Mopar Factory 5th Wheel Hitch
    You are correct that Curt does manufacture the Mopar factory 5th wheel hitches, so you can use either the # C16722 (12" diameter) or the # 16721 (10" factory lube plate) as a replacement. These are both 3/16" thick so they'll be suitable for almost any 5th wheel hitch, including your Mopar hitch. You'll want to measure the hitch's skid plate to determine which size will give you the most coverage.

  • B&W Companion Latch Handle Stuck and Won't Unlatch
    I am a big advocate of preventative maintenance, a little bit of maintenance can save a lot of time and frustration down the road. So I recommend lubricating the hitch well and making sure that you are in line with the trailer on level ground so unhooking is a little easier. The B&W Companion Slider Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3400 has 4 main points that need to be lubricated. The polyurethane bushings (that the head sits on) need a thin layer of multi purpose...

  • Can Lube Plate Be Used with Ram Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # KPG5-R30IP
    You can absolutely use a 10" lube plate such as the Curt # 16721 with the Ram Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # KPG5-R30IP to keep the hitch head lubricated and scratch free. You may just want to take a look at the manual for your particular 5th wheel hitch, as some will note a maximum thickness on a lube plate like this. If you can tell me what model hitch you have I can also check this for you.

  • Recommended Grease for Lubricating Rails Roller Unit on Curt Q20 5th Wheel Hitch
    For their # C16536 Q20 5th Wheel Hitch, Curt recommends using a quality white lithium grease like # L11350 for the 16 oz can, or in a 3 oz cartridge available as # L11357 or a 14 oz cartridge available as # L11354. Curt recommends applying a thin layer of grease of the rails that the roller rides against before each trip, and running the hitch fore and aft several times before locking it back in place. At the beginning of each trip, examine the grease on the rails and if it's become dirty...

  • Best Lube Plate for Demco Hijacker Autoslide Hitch
    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # DM8550034 can only use a lube plate that is a maximum of 3/16 inches thick so you can use the # RP83004 that is 12 inches diameter and 1/8 inch thick or the Curt 10 Inch # 16721 that is 3/16 inch thick. I recommend using the Reese # RP83004 as it is wider for more pin box contact and yet thinner to allow the capture plates to more easily engage. Standard pin boxes measure between 12 and 14 inches wide. The lube plate will...

  • Does Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Hitch Have a Lifespan & When to Change
    So the lifespan and when to change a lube plate doesn't have a hard and fast answer because there are numerous variables associated with how long it will last. The terrain you are going over, the weight of your trailer, and the frequency with which you use it are all really important and will impact how often you need to change it.

The Companion hitches are among the nicest hitches around and are considered by most as the best fifth wheel hitch. This would be a great solution.

B&W recommends the use of a lube plate so we also recommend it. Your hitch will stay a lot cleaner and you will still get good performance without grease.

    The maintenance practices that you will need to follow for your 5th wheel hitch will be outlined in the owner's manual. There is not a standard practice for all 5th wheel trailer hitches. If you can tell me exactly what 5th wheel hitch you are using then I would be happy to explain these to you. For example, the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16130 calls for you to torque the four pilot bolts to 100 foot lbs and for you to lubricate all of the grease points before each use. If...

  • 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....
