Video Transcript for Curt Weight Distribution C45822 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Weld-On Sway Control Tab. This tab is designed for adding a mounting plate for your sway control ball. It's going to be made from a steel construction, featuring a nice black powder coating finish on it to help it resist rust and corrosion. It does have an area on this side where the steel is exposed, this is for welding, so it is designed to get welded on to the side of your ball mount or weight distribution head assembly. Welding should be done, or performed by a qualified professional welder. Taking a few measurements of the sway control tab, starting with the overall length, it's going to give us a length measurement of 5 inches. The width measurement is going to be right at 2 inches.

The thickness of the tab, that's going to measure about 3/8ths of an inch in thickness. The hole on the unit is going to give us a diameter of 5/8ths of an inch. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt Weld-On Sway Control Tab.

Weld-On Sway Control Tab - C45822

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (32 Customer Reviews)


by:

VERY disappointed that carton had no - zero! - packing material inside! A heavy bracket was packed in with a light bar - fragile item - in an average weight cardboard carton. It does not take Einstein himself to calculate the risk factor here! The lights inside the light bar had come out of their sockets and were ALSO rattling around in the carton! Please teach your people how to pack cartons correctly!!

This sway control package is just what we needed! After towing our 3300 lb camper home with my wifes Jeep Cherokee, WITHOUT an anti-sway bar, I said I wasn't towing the camper anywhere until we had this installed. We drove in 20-30 mph crosswinds the entire 4+ hour drive back. With this installed, we hardly notice it. Now, you can't get rid of the wind itself, but you certainly don't have to worry about the trailer starting to move around on it's own - this is great for stabilizing everything.

Easy to install - just used the template they include with it, and then just drilled some holes through the frame of the camper and installed the hitch, hooked up and we were ready to go. We only use Curt products for our vehicles, utility trailer, and camper - nothing compares in my opinion.

Had professional welder weld Sway bar tab to hitch for $20. Used for towing 23 foot rv trailer. Great solution for when you need a sway bar and you can’t get a pre made Hitch with sway bar tab



by:

i received the sway control plate very quickly it was as i expected the correct part i also installed the curt trailer hitch receiver #c-15300 i like to say that also is a great part was delivered very quickly on installing very easy and simple to do hardest part was removing old trailer hitch bolts in total the job took 2-1/2 hours two of the hours was removing old hitch i recommend this hitch for series towing. let me say again great hitch and sway control plate thanks again.

Simple product that welds to the hitch but is needed with the sway control.

Product was delivered on time as promised and was of the quality that I expected. Will use this company for future trailer needs.

It works fine.



by:

Product is well built. I needed an antisway tab on the opposite side from the product pictured online, so I called and asked whether etrailer had a separate tab that I could weld where I needed it. Etrailer had it and the two items arrived very quickly by mail.

I now have the ball height I wanted and a good short distance from ball to bumper--and the antisway tab ball mount.

The setup should be just right for towing my 16' Casita with the Chevy Trail Blazer.



by:

Could be better not a very square cut...I put a square on it and has a small angle ...I will grind a little off to make it true to mate up to my hitch before I weld it on.....thanks



by:

Only problem was that it took 2 weeks to deliver. The package came to my city but was damaged and returned. An other one was sent to me. It is a good heavy duty product.



by:

You shipped it in a envelope. It arrived empty with a big tear in it. This item is clearly to heavy to be shipped this way.

  • How Does a Second Friction Sway Control Unit Get Installed on a Trailer
    You are correct, adding a second sway control bar, like the Curt Friction Style Sway Control, # 17200, is recommended for trailers over 26 feet long. You will need to use the weld-on friction sway control tab # C45822 or # 3442. It will get welded to the side of the ball mount. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder. Once welded on it will look like ball mount # D320 except the tab will be welded to the other side (since the plate you are using is occupying...

  • Availability of Curt RockerBall Setup With Longer Shank
    The only option that comes from Curt is the # C45WR with the 7-1/2" ball mount length. If you want a longer ball mount you would have to put one together. You could use the Curt RockerBall Shock Absorbing 2" Hitch Ball # C40047 along with something like the # D-4 which is 10-1/4" long. Make sure to measure so you get the right length. Then you will need to attach the Curt Weld-On Sway Control Tab # C45822.

  • How to Add a Second Reese Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 for Larger Trailer
    There are a couple of different ways you can go to add a second Reese Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 to your larger trailer. The first, and probably simplest, way is to have 2 of the Weld-On Sway Control Tab # C45822 welded on to both sides of the ball mount. You will want to have these welded on by a qualified welder. I've included a diagram to help with the location of the tab for both width and depth so you will also want to ensure it is 5-1/2 inches on center from ball to ball. The...

  • Distance Needed Between Hitch Ball and Sway Control Ball With Weld-On Tab
    Yes, the Weld-On Sway Control Tab # C45822 will be okay with a 5-3/4" spread between the hitch ball and the Sway Control Ball # C36BR. The Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003 has a 5-1/2" distance between the center of the bolt holes. The 5-1/2" is the narrowest measurement you want for most applications.

  • Friction Sway Control Mounting Tabs for 2-Inch Ball Mounts
    We do offer a 2-inch ball mount that has a friction anti-sway mounting tab already welded in place, Curt # D320, but this ball mount offers 2-inches of drop, not 4-inches. We do offer a 2-inch no-welding Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003 that fits on your ball mount in addition to the simple weld-on tabs # C45822 and # 3442.

  • Recommendation for Adding 2nd Friction Sway Control Bar to Trailer
    To add a second friction sway control, you will need the second Reese Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 and you'll need to weld a tab onto your trailer hitch ball platform like # C45822. The friction bar will simply be inverted on the left side, but that will not impact the function and is designed for use on either side. I've attached an article to assist and 2 bars are recommended on trailers over 26 feet long or if you simply want more sway control. The other option is to use a weight...

  • Short Arm Weight Distribution System Needed for 10,000 lb Trailer Towed by a 2005 Ford F-250/F-350
    I do have a solution to help with the sag in your tow vehicle as well as with sway control for your enclosed car hauler, but unfortunately 28-1/2" arms on a Weight Distribution (WD) system is the shortest that we have to offer. Most people like to use a sway control like the Reese Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 which can be used without a WD system. You will just need a way to mount the small hitch ball. You can use the Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003 if you have a 2" receiver...

  • Sway Control Tab Recommendation for Adjustable Ball Mount
    To add a bracket for a sway control hitch ball I recommend checking out the Curt Weld-On Sway Control Tab # C45822. It doesn't look like the ball mount part of the Ball Mount Adjustable with Sway-Control Tab, 6,000 lbs # 7390 is available separately which is why I recommend having that tab welded on.

  • Availability Of a Ball Mount With Friction Sway Control Tab Rated For 10,000LBS
    You do have a couple options but the Curt Ball Mount w/ Sway Control Tab # D320 is not available in a 10K weight capacity. You can use the similar Curt Ball Mount # C45310 rated for 10,000lbs and weld on a Sway Control Tab # C45822. We do also have the Bolt On Bracket # RP26003 but his has a 1" hole versus the 1-1/4" hole on the ball mount. So you will either need to drill the hole larger or use a 2-5/16" Ball # C40007 and Reducer Bushing # F-2. Then you will be able to mount the Friction...

  • How to Install Reese 83660 Friction Sway Control Unit on Both Sides of Trailer
    You can certainly use the Reese # 83660 sway control kit on both sides of your trailer A-frame. There's a couple of ways to do this, but the most simple way would be to use your existing ball mount, and have a # C45822 sway control tab welded on both sides of the ball mount. The tabs should be welded in place by a qualified welder as shown in the provided diagram. Or, you could use the # RP26003 on the right side and have the # C45822 tab welded onto the left side. As a third alternative,...

  • Installation of Second Curt Friction Sway Control With Adapter
    If you have a weight distribution system with a head like the # PS58442 you were looking at the only thing you need to do is attach the # 17200 to the other side of the frame and insert the # C36BR in the hole on the other side. It sounds like the adapter you're referring to may be something like the # RP26003. Unfortunately, there is not a bolt on solution that will allow you to install 2 of the # 17200. The only option would be to use the Weld-On Sway Control Tab # C45822 and put one...

  • Options for Sway Control Tab on Ball Mount for Curt Friction Sway Control
    If the sway control tab of your Curt ball mount part # D320 ended up bending you most likely turned too sharply which caused the unit to put too much strain on the tab and bend/break it. Now that said you can basically put the tab on any ball mount you want (as long as it's steel) with a weld on tab like # C45822. Or if you didn't want to weld you could use the # RP26003 which will fit under the ball.

  • Bracket Recommendation for Installing Second Curt Friction Sway Control
    For installing a two friction sway controls like part # 17200 you would need to have a second tab welded to the side of the ball mount. For that you would want the part # C45822. For a ball mount that has one tab installed on it already you would want the part # D320. This ball mount has a drop of 2 inches.

  • How To Mount Two Friction Sway Control Bars On a Ball Mount
    In order to use two friction sway control bars like the Reese Friction Sway Control Kit part # 83660 you'd need to have two of the friction sway control tabs like the Weld-On Sway Control Tab part # C45822 welded to the ball mount. The other options would be to use the Curt Ball Mount part # D320 assuming it has the correct rise/drop for you needs and only have one friction sway control tab welded on.

  • Can a Friction Sway Control Bar Be Used with Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount
    The only way to use the Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount part # C45900 with the Curt Friction Sway Control for Weight Distribution Systems part # 17200 would be to weld on the Weld-On Sway Control Tab part # C45822 onto the side of the channel and even then this isn't really ideal. If you don't know how to weld it could end up just being more cost effective to go with an electric option assuming the trailer has brakes, the Tuson Asymmetric Sway Control part # 335TSC-1000.

  • How To Minimize Trailer Sway While Towing
    It sounds to me like you are experiencing trailer sway. Although the Timbren springs are an excellent suspension enhancement option, they are not the best option to eliminate trailer sway or stability, but they will help increase the stability of your truck while under load. The Timbren springs are a great addition when experiencing vehicle sag however, for trailer sway and stability, I recommend using a sway control bar such as the Reese Friction Sway Control Kit part # 83660.

  • Can Second Friction Sway Control be Used on Trailer Setup and Will It Help
    Adding a second friction sway control device # 83660 can help. Typically what we recommend is if the trailer is longer than 26 feet then a second unit should be used. You may need to use the weld-on friction sway control tab # C45822 or # 3442 if your weight distribution head doesn't already have the bracket and hole for a second one. It will get welded to the side of the head or ball mount. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder. Once welded on it will look like...

  • Adding a Mounting Plate for a Second Friction Sway Control Ball On a Ball Mount
    You will need to use the weld-on friction sway control tab # C45822 or # 3442. It will get welded to the side of the ball mount. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder. Once welded on it will look like ball mount # D320 except the tab will be welded to the other side (since the plate you are using is occupying the passenger side of the ball mount).

  • Adding a Mount for the Small Ball of a Friction Sway Control System to a Ball Mount
    All you will need is a sway control tab, # 3442, that you can have welded to the other side of the mount you are using. Welding should be done by a qualified professional welder. We also have # C45822 which is the same thing only a different brand.

  • Fit and Compatibility of Reese Sway Control Ball Mount Bracket on Curt Ball Mounts
    The Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003 will fit the Class IV ball mount # C45338. For the Class V ball mount you would want the weld-on sway control tab # C45822. I have linked all the above mentioned products to this page for your convenience.

  • Where to Measure to Determine Correct Rise/Drop for Ball Mount
    Since there aren't any zero rise/drop ball mount options (shockingly) you might verify that your setup was measured in the right spots. You'd want to measure from the bottom of the coupler lip down to the ground when the trailer is level and then from the top of your hitch opening down to the ground. The part # D320 has a drop of 2 inches and comes with the tab needed for friction sway control. This probably would be close enough to what you'd need.

  • Friction Sway Control Ball Mount Bracket Solution for Hitch Ball with 1-1/4 inch Shank
    You could use a weld on tab for the side of your current ball mount with the part # C45822 but since the shank diameter of your ball is 1-1/4 inch there isn't a bracket that can fit under your ball as for that style there's only options that fit the 1 inch diameter shank balls.

  • Can Friction Sway Control Units Be Installed on Both Sides of Trailer
    The Reese Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 comes setup to be installed on the passenger side of a trailer, but you can easily install it on the driver side of a trailer by removing the inner piece of the unit, flipping it around 180 degrees and then reinserting it. You will need to have a tab welded to the other side of the ball mount. For that you will need the part # C45822.

  • Can the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount Be Used With Friction Sway Control
    In order to use the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount part # C45331 with a friction sway control device you'd need to have a sway control tab welded to the side of the platform such as the Weld-On Sway Control Tab part # C45822. If you don't already have a sway bar you can use the Curt Friction Sway Control part # 17200.
