Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45030 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C45030, this is the Curt ball mount for 2 inch hitches. It's going to have a 7,500 pound capacity. This ball mount is gonna let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion is going to slide into your vehicles receiver tube of your hitch, and then the ball platforms going to provide a great mounting point for your hitch ball. If you need a hitch ball you can find those right here are Etrailer.com, they are going to be sold separately. You can use this mount in either the drop or the rise position, both are available to help ensure level towing. It's made from a sturdy steel construction, here on the backside it's going to feature a hollow shank, now it's also feature a corrosion resistant, high gloss, black, powder coat finish.

The pin hole diameter, back here, is going to measure 5/8 of an inch. Your hitch pin and clip, or hitch lock, are going to be sold separately. If you need just a standard hitch pin and clip you can find that with part number C21500, or if you would like a hitch pin and lock, you can find that on our website with part number 7683. Curt makes this mount in the USA, again it is designed for 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers, it's going to offer a gross towing weight of 7,500 pounds, with a maximum tow weight of 750 pounds. A few measurements to go over with you real quick. Taking a measurement from the center of the ball hole to the center of the hitch pin hole, that's going to give us a measurement, center on center, let's line that up a little bit better.

About 7 5/8 of an inch, somewhere in there, pretty close to that measurement. The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank, that's going to give us a measurement of 2 1/2 inches. Now with it installed in the drop position, here on the sticker it's going to say it offers a 2 inch drop, that's an approximate, or estimate . Not estimated, but rounded off measurement. The actual drop measuring from the top of the shank to the ball platform, it's going to give us a measurement of 2 1/4 of an inch.

The rise, is going to give us a rise of an inch. The ball hole diameter is going to give us a diameter of 1 inch, keep that measurement in mind when choosing a hitch ball, you want to make sure that the shank of the hitch ball matches up with the ball hole diameter on the mount. Curt is also going to cover this with a limited lifetime warranty. I will go ahead and show you how it installs inside of your hitch, really simple process. All you have to do is slide the shank into the receiver tube, line up your pin holes, and take your pin and clip, or hitch pin lock, and use those to secure it inside of your hitch. That's going to do it for our review of part number C45030, this is the Curt ball mount for 2 inch hitches.

I ordered the Curt trailer hitch, wiring harness, and ball mount for my jeep. All products are high quality, should last a lifetime. The price is very reasonable and the videos make installation possible by even a not so mechanical minded person. The products are shipped in quality boxes and packed should withstand even rough handling. The shipping was really fast as well. The reps also follow thru with shipping information easy for you to track entire route of the products. I am a very happy camper, comfortable with this company selling quality products for reasonable prices. i will order again, Try them, you will like them too! 339317

No issues. I should check and see the paint chips on the receiver. I never did get a chance to touch them up. I should do it before winter.Thanks for the follow up!

Product arrived via UPS having obviously been dropped on the top corner, at least once, fairly hard. Result: 12"+ hole along the corner of the box fore section of receiver bent @3/8" no pin no ball Given the great packaging, this seems strictly the (ir)responsibility of UPS. Hitch installed in less than 10 minutes, unfortunately I won't be towing in the a.m. until I replace the missing parts... As for etrailer.com, they said what they would do then did it; I like that! Excellent communication and a pleasure to deal with all the way around. 220641

Does the job, however there's a lot of play when hitch mount is inserted into the hitch and when towing with an empty trailer. Very loud. Have to buy a silencer that goes around and secures the product. 225873

Purchased the Curt trailer hitch receiver, wiring harness, & ball mount for my 2004 Honda CR-V. Delivery was free and the items arrived within several days after I ordered. It took me about a hour by myself several weeks ago to install the wiring harness with all the parts that had to be removed & replaced to do it. It was a simple task thanks to the installation video on eTrailer's web site. I waited until my grandson was home from college to install the hitch receiver. Today it took the two of us less than a hour to mount it. Thanks again to eTrailer for the installation video provided to show step by step installation. The ball mount appears to be a good quality sturdy product. The purchase price was quite reasonable and I will shop at etrailer.com again. 250717

I know absolutely nothing about hitches! I checked prices and products in my area and was dissatisfied with high prises and confusion over which product would be best for my vehicle. I did an extensive search on the internet and found etrailer.com. I called and talked to Jonathan. He walked me thru the entire order process and explained details about the products. I placed my order and received it in time frame I asked for. My local Toyota dealer installed the hitch without any problems! I am totally satisfied with the pricing, product and customer service. I highly recommend etrailer.com!!! 189087

Ordered a complete hitch package for my GMC Terrain. Every piece was included and all of it was top notch quality. The fit was perfect and installation was a breeze. The wiring harness matched up perfectly with the OEM plugs, no splicing or crimping required. I highly recommend this company and its products. 221453

Product has worked great so far. A little difficult to install (took me two hours), but that was likely my doing it alone (really hard to hold up the hitch under the car by yourself!) and getting various parts off the car. But, once in, looks great, and pulled a trailer 200+ miles just fine the week after install. Only complaint would be that I figured the packaged kit would come with a trailer pin...but didn't, and had to buy one. Overall, great value and product! 213724

The hitch went on exactly as described in your YouTube video. I got it on in about 45 minutes without putting the Highlander on jackstands. I did it alone and found a scissor jack the perfect means to elevate and support the passenger's side while I attached the driver's side. It seems to go better by attaching one bolt on the driver's side then one on the other side. By the way, your video explains how the washers should go on. The written instructions accompanying the hitch did not. The wiring package did not follow the video OR the written instructions. Both state that the package contains double stick tape that should be used to connect the black box. There was no tape in the package or attached to the black box. I wedged the black box in an open in the body. I think it will be secure and the wire protected from rubbing. Otherwise, i will have to open the compartments up again and apply adhesive of my own. Your video suggested that the wires can be lead from the driver's side connectors to the equipment tray in the back. It can, but the wires are pinched between the plastic body part. Over time, I suspect wire sheath would rub away and ground the connection. I ground away a very small section of the equpment tray. It created enough space to relieve the pinching. By the way, I'm 66. I'm sure kids could install the hitch even faster than I did. 231366

  • Best Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Subaru Forester
  • The best hitch for your 2016 Forester will depend on what you're planning on using the hitch for. If you're only needing the hitch to serve as an attachment point for the Yakima # Y02457 Ridgeback bike rack, a Class II hitch like the Draw-Tite # 36523 would be an excellent choice. However, if you might also use the hitch as an attachment point for other accessories like a large cargo carrier such as the Curt # C18153 or if you might do some light duty towing, a Class III hitch like the...

  • I have included a picture showing what Curt trailer hitch # C13236 looks like installed on a 2017 Dodge Charger. I think that the hitch and its positioning match the lines of the vehicle quite well which is not normally the case with trailer hitches. But this one blends nicely. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 1" Rise, 2-1/4" Drop - 7-5/8" Long - 7,500 lbs Item # C45030. It will accept a hitch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank such as # 63845...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2015 Mercedes GLK250
  • There is one trailer hitch that fits the 2015 Mercedes GLK250. It is Curt trailer hitch # C13155. But this hitch does require drilling for installation. There aren't any no-drill options. I have included a link to the instructions so you can see how the hitch installs. There is no welding required. If you decide to go with this hitch and will be doing some towing the recommended ball mount is # C45030. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19260, for a 2 inch ball use # 63845, and for a 2-5/16...

  • Curt Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness Fits for 2016 Kia Sportage
  • The correct Curt 2-inch Class III hitch for the 2016 Kia Sportage is part # C13120. This also fits the 2015 model year. This Curt hitch comes complete with all required installation hardware. I have linked the written instructions as well as an install video showing a 2015 model year. The only specialized tool needed is a torque wrench like # ALL944001 which will let you tighten the fasteners to the correct torque values. If you plan to move the hitch from one vehicle to another please...

  • Should Trailer Be Loaded or Unloaded When Measuring For Correct Ball Mount Rise/Drop
  • You can measure your trailer's coupler height with the trailer loaded or unloaded. The travel in the trailer's suspension will not have a significant impact on the trailer's coupler height. When measuring the coupler height, the trailer jack will be supporting the trailer and holding it level regardless of the trailer's load. I have attached a help article on measuring for the correct ball mount for you.

  • Parts Needed to Tow U-Haul Trailer with 2018 Mazda CX-9
  • In order to tow a 5x8 U-Haul cargo trailer with your 2018 Mazda CX-9 you will need a trailer hitch, a 4-Way wiring harness, and a ball mount/hitch ball combo. There are two Class III 2 inch trailer hitch receivers available for your CX-9, the Curt # C13284 and the Draw-Tite # 76020. Both feature pretty similar designs and will use the same existing holes in the vehicle's frame but I recommend going with the Curt # C13284 because it offers a slightly more recessed (hidden) receiver and...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Toyota Tacoma
  • The Curt Class III trailer hitch, part # C13264 is the only hitch we offer that's a fit for your 2016 Tacoma. The Draw-Tite Class III, part # 75236 is a fit for the 2015 Tacoma, and because the 2016 is a brand new model, the fit didn't carry over to the new model year. My Curt representative tells me that when the hitch is installed, the front face of the receiver will be recessed under the rear bumper by about 2 inches, as you can see in the diagram I've edited for you. You might...

  • How to Transport 333-lb Wheelchair on 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Rear Spare Tire
  • The spare tire on your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited poses a clearance challenge for transporting a wheelchair on a hitch-mounted carrier. The use of a hitch extension like # C45791 will get you an extra 8-inches of clearance at the spare tire, but the use of any adapter like this also costs you 50-percent of your hitch capacity. This is due to the extra leverage applied to the hitch from the load being further away from it. The 2-inch hitches for your Wrangler Unlimited (shown on the...

  • Items Needed to Equip 2005 Acura MDX with Brake Controller for Towing Travel Trailer
  • We can help you get your 2005 Acura MDX ready for towing your travel trailer. The maximum rated towing capacity for the vehicle is 4500-lbs but you can check your owner's manual to make certain your particular MDX has the needed capacity for your 3500-lb trailer. Since your travel trailer has what's called a 7-way RV-style plug that includes a circuit for trailer brakes (please see the linked photo) you will need to install a mating 7-way socket on the MDX. This will carry all of the...

  • Class III Trailer Hitch Fit on 2015 Ford Transit Connect with Long Wheel Base
  • My contacts at Draw-Tite verified that their 2-Inch Class III hitch # 75852 is confirmed to fit on the long wheelbase version of your 2015 Ford Transit Connect. I linked an install video for the similar Curt hitch # C13167 - also a confirmed fit. For a wiring harness for towing you can use the Tow Ready 4-pole wiring kit # 118613. The recommended ball mount # C45030 can be used with a ball that has a 1-inch shank, such as 2-inch ball # 63845.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2014 Mercedes GLK 250 Bluetec
  • First, for a trailer hitch that fits your 2014 Mercedes GLK 250 BlueTec there is one option; Curt trailer hitch # C13155. And for a trailer wiring harness I recommend # C59236 since it is designed to work with 2 or 3 wire electrical systems and PWM (pulse width modulation) systems so pretty much all scenarios are covered. A trusted mechanic or RV dealer with a service center could perform the installation for you. When using the hitch for towing you can use ball mount # C45030. For...
