Video Transcript for Curt Weight Distribution C17208 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the replacement hook-up brackets for the Curt Weight Distribution Systems. These brackets feature a really nice low-profile design. That way they don't interfere with frame-mounted items, such as gas tanks, toolboxes, generators, and battery boxes. These brackets are made from a durable steel construction, and they feature a black powder-coated finish to help them resist rust and corrosion and last a long time. Again, these are for Curt Weight Distribution Systems. The following part numbers are the brackets that these are going to work with: C17007, 17300, 17301, 17302, C17330, C17331, and C17332. When it comes to the size of frame that these are going to fit, we can tell that by taking a measurement right here.

This is the portion that fits onto the trailer frame. If we measure that opening, we can see that that's going to measure up to 2 3/4 of an inch. These are going to fit frames that have a width up to 2 3/4 of an inch wide. They're going to take up around 4 inches along the trailer frame. This part number is going to come with your two hook-up brackets. It's going to come with two different sets of bolts, and it's going to come with these clips right here.

These clips are what hold the brackets into the up position. You can lower these to hook up to the chain, and then use your leverage bar to get these in the up position. Then secure them in place by taking this clip and feeding it through. That's going to hold it into the up or towing position. Again, it does come with two different length bolts. You can use these longer bolts for narrower trailer frames.

They thread in there, and they pinch this bracket along the trailer frame. These are going to measure 4" long from the bottom of the bolt head to the end of the threaded portion. Then you can use the shorter bolts for thicker trailer frames. These are going to measure 2" long from the bottom of the bolt head to the end of the threaded portion. That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement hook-up brackets for Curt Weight Distribution Systems.

I've ordered this set of Curt Hookup Brackets before for my current trailer and was so pleased that I just purchased another set for a trailer I have on order. I always have my brackets welded-on, therefore, I need new brackets when I trade trailers. When I have a choice, I prefer Curt products because the quality is excellent and the cost is always very competitive. 457568

I ordered these for another trailer that I own so as to not have to buy a whole new kit that would cost well over $200. SO this saved me money up front. Next it was delivered much faster then expected. The product is built heavy to last and hold the weight intended providing more safety at highway speeds. I would recommend this product and etrailer they are awesome! 491106

Ask the Experts about this Curt Accessories and Parts

  • What Parts Come With The Curt Replacement Hook Up Brackets And Curt Replacement Trunnion Bar Kit
    The Curt Replacement Hook Up Brackets Kit, Item # C17208, comes with two hook-up brackets, bolts, and pins. They work with Curt weight distribution systems and allow you to clear frame-mount obstacles on your trailer. The Curt Replacement Trunnion Bar Kit, Item # C17337, comes with one spring bar, chain fastener, and U-bolt. The spring bar and chain come pre-assembled and are great replacements for Curt trunnion spring bars. If you need two spring bars then you will have to purchase...

  • Replacement Curt Weight Distribution Chain Lift Brackets
    The frame-mount lift brackets from a Curt weight distribution system are not weight rated so one kit works for all chain-type systems. For replacement chain hangers use part # C17208 that you referenced. We also offer bolt-on hanger kit # C17005 which is helpful when the trailer frame dimensions do not allow using the clamp on kit # C17208. These require drilling for installation and the hardware to mount them is included. The photo included for you shows how these bolt on.

  • Will Curt Chain Hangers C17208 Work on Curt Weight Distribution System C17002
    Yes, the Curt chain hangers part # C17208 that you referenced could be used with the Curt Weight Distribution System part # C17002 that you referenced. The set screws of the hangers will fit a trailer frame that is 1-3/4 inches wide too.

  • Can Blue Ox Brackets be Used on a Curt Weight Distribution System
    The only component that can safely be mixed and matched on weight distribution (WD) systems is the shank. If you are using a Curt system then you need to use the Hook Up Brackets # C17208 and I do not recommend using Blue Ox Brackets # BXW4021 or # BXW4020.

  • Will Curt Replacement Hook Up Brackets # C17208 Fit a Trailer Frame that is 2 Inches Wide
    Yes, the Curt Replacement Hook Up Brackets, # C17208, will fit your trailer frame which measures right at 2 inches. These brackets are designed to fit trailer frames up to 2-3/4 inches wide. Although the Curt brackets, # C17208, will fit on your trailer frame and more than likely work with your Husky round bar weight distribution system, I can not make any guaranties since Curt does not test their products on systems from other manufacturers. As for the Curt Friction Style Sway Control,...

  • Can Curt Weight Distribution Brackets be Used with Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution Systems
    The Curt weight distribution brackets # C17208 are chain hanging brackets like in system # C17057. The Equal-I-zer systems do not use chains. So if additional brackets are needed you would need to use the Equal-I-zer brackets # EQ95-01-5600. If you are talking about the similar bracket set # C17508 then I cannot say that they and the Equal-I-Zer spring bars are compatible because they are not tested together making compatibility and capacity unknown. The other issue is that on the Curt...

  • Do the Hook Up Brackets for Curt Weight Distribution Systems Provide Sway Control
    The Replacement Hook Up Brackets # C17208 do not act as sway control. These are for use with just the chain systems like part # C17332 or # C17057 which require a friction sway control like # 17200 if you want sway control added. This friction sway control is effective but a little outdated and can be frustrating because you have to disengage it to back your trailer up. For a system that does have integrated sway control and chain hangers you can use the Blue Ox SwayPro like part # BXW0753...

  • Weight Distribution System Chain Hanger Recommendations for Reese Weight Distribution System
    Yes, you'll want to use Reese brand frame brackets when you go to install your weight distribution system. Most likely you need chain hangers like the # RP58306 or if you have clearance issues above the frame on your trailer you can use the bolt on style brackets like part # RP58305.

  • Do Replacement Hook Up Brackets for Curt Weight Distribution Systems Require Drilling
    The Replacement Hook Up Brackets for Curt Weight Distribution Systems part # C17208 are replacement brackets for the Curt weight distribution systems. They do not require drilling because they clamp on with the included hardware and fit trailer frames up to 2-3/4" wide. The bracket positioning depends on the weight distribution system.

  • Recommendation For Snap Up Replacement Brackets For Weight Distribution System
    Snap up brackets are somewhat interchangeable within their family branding. For example, the current Replacement Lift Bracket, Item # RP21501, works with the Reese family of weight distribution systems which includes Reese, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, or Pro Series. The difference between all the snap up brackets involves how heavy duty they are and what weight distribution systems they work with. The Curt Replacement Hook Up Brackets, Item # C17208, are designed for Curt weight distribution...
