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

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. 505567

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Is a Capture Plate Needed to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Curt E16 Hitch
    You do not need a capture plate for the Curt E16 5th wheel trailer hitch. Capture plates are exclusive to PullRite hitches and are used to help activate its automatic sliding feature. You would just need to remove the capture plate on the pin box to use the Curt hitch. Be sure to use some grease # L11390. Or, if you do not want to deal with grease you could always use a lube plate, # 16721.

  • 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...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD With 5th Wheel Prep
    It looks like the 2011 Silverado models have an increased fifth-wheel towing capacity, so I would recommend going with a hitch rated up to 20000lbs, to take advantage of the upgrades they have included on the new models. The Reese fifth-wheel hitch # RP30081 would be a good choice for your application, and this can be installed using custom fifth-wheel rail installation kit # RP50066-58, which will mount to the existing holes in your truck frame. Luckily, Chevy even made some changes...

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.
