Bought this because my 2" drop hitch was too high. Works perfect and has the ball installed which is a nice plus. Super fast shipping. No complaints. 628401

I purchased this Ball Mount to give a 2" rise to a small trailer to be pulled by my Honda CR-V. It's just what the doctor ordered. I couldn't believe how fast they got it to me. I'm always satisfied with my etrailer purchases. 577971

Exactly as described, well packaged and very prompt standard delivery (sort of surprising for such a heavy item). Looking forward to boating season with my new ride ! 243369

Exactly what I expected. Fits right where it needs to on the Town & Country. Tight fit, solid material. Flip upside down to rise up behind the bumper. The ball is mounted good n tight, so a little extra oomph is needed to remove and move to the new topside. 473318

by:

Got a new rig so I needed a 4'' drop instead of my 2'' drop ball mount. Great product but even a better transaction. Very fast shipping and packaging was safe and secure. This was shipped with 2 trailer tires. When the shipment came everything was in one package. This made me worry that shoddy packaging would have enabled the ball mount to bounce around and damage the tires or wheels. Not even close. The safe, secure, and attention to detail to the packaging was top notch. Would not hesitate to order again from etrailer.com 472234



- C45056
by:

It's as advertised and works. It comes as shown in the picture set for a drop. If you want to flip it over to get a lift you are going to need some long wrenches. The nut holding the ball is on there extremely tight. 281525

As usual, the folks at eTrailer were great to work with. The order was correct and shipped on-time (actually early). However, there was a problem with the physical dimensions of the Curt ball mount: the specs stated that it was a 4 inch drop. ETrailer's website confirmed exactly how this measurement is made. However, when I measured it, I found that it was NOT 4 inches, but rather 3.25 inches. A couple of phone conversations with eTrailer yielded an explanation from the manufacturer that this dimension is not meant to be "exact". Well, 3/4 of an inch variance is definitely "not exact". So, I found the ball mount I needed elsewhere and arranged to return this one to eTrailer. Again, they were most accommodating. 313054

I ordered five things from e trailer trailer hitch, ball mount with ball, brake controller, wiring adaptor and 7 pin connector all pieces came in one box and all in great shape. Ordered it on the 13th about noon and showed up on the 17th around noon free shipping made this a easy decision. All I have to do is install it I have a newer truck so its all prewired just plug in and go. One last thing I like about e trailer is all the videos they have with vehicle specific install work they have done this a great reference tool. 308089

Ask the Experts about this Curt Ball Mounts


  • Can Curt Class III Ball Mount # C45056 Be Used in Rise Position
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt regarding the Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2 Inch Ball # C45056 referenced in your question. He did state that the ball mount can be used in the rise position, which will indeed provide a 2 inch rise. The issue with this particular model is that the hitch ball will come already torqued from the factory. My contact stated that it is torqued at a high amount so it might be quite difficult to actually remove the ball so you can flip it over to use in the rise...

  • Measuring for Correct Ball Mount on 2017 Chevy Colorado
  • Based on your measurements you are looking for a 4-1/4 or 4 inch drop for your ball mount. I've attached an article to assist. If you want a fixed mount ball mount, I recommend the4 Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball - 4" Drop - 7,500 lbs # C45056 if your trailer has a 2 inch ball coupler. If the coupler fits a 2-5/16 inch ball, then I recommend # C45042 instead. These will work well for towing 7,500 lbs with a 750 lbs tongue weight. Anything beyond that should use a weight distribution...

  • Ball Mount for Trailer that Sits 4-1/2 Inches Under Hitch
  • Your best solution is going to be getting a ball mount with a 4 inch drop like # C45056. Unfortunately, we don't have one with a 4-1/2 inch and all of them with a 5 inch drop will not fit a Class III trailer hitch receiver. In reality the 1/2 inch of difference you'll have won't make a large impact. You just want the trailer to be as level as you can get it.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for Rise and Drop Requirements with 2 Inch Pre-Mounted Hitch Ball
  • For your Ford truck needing a 4 inch drop, I recommend the Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball # C45056. This will come with the pin and clip and pre-torqued hitch ball. For your 3 inch rise with mounted ball, I recommend the MaxxTow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # MT70380. This is an adjustable mount that you could use for the rise and drop needed on either vehicle to work well with your trailer. I recommend a locking hitch pin like # 7683 to secure your investment. We don't actually...

  • Availability of Just Ball Mount of Curt Ball Mount # C45036
  • Yes, for just the ball mount portion of the part # C45036 you'd want the part # C45067 instead.

  • Recommendations for a Ball Mount with 4 Inch Drop with a 2 Inch Ball Already Installed
  • We can't swap out balls that are in a kit but we do have an option for a 2 inch ball mount with a 4 inch drop that comes with a 2 inch ball. It is # C45056 for a Curt rated for 7,500 pounds. Or you could get the ball mount by itself, # C45341, and add a 2 inch ball # A-90.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 1994 GMC Yukon
  • Since you referenced 3 trailer hitches that fit your son's 1994 GMC Yukon I believe you are referring to the Curt options. The main difference between all 3 options is that each one has different gross towing weight (GTW) and tongue weight (TW) weight ratings: Curt Class III - # C13121 500 lbs TW/5,000 lbs GTW Curt Class III - # C13029 600 lbs TW/6,000 lbs GTW Curt Class IV - # C14029 1,000 lbs TW/10,000 lbs GTW When I looked up the max trailer weight rating for a '94 Yukon it looked...

  • Hitch, Brake Controller & Related Towing Items for 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Long Bed
  • We can help you get your 2014 Silverado 1500 long bed ready for towing your trailer. Your owner's manual is the best place to confirm the truck's towing capacity but you can also check with your local dealership using the truck VIN. It sounds like you need a 2-inch ball mount with about 4-inches of drop to allow your hitched trailer to remain level, which is important for good handling. You can use ball mount/ball combo # C45056 or use our ball mount kit # 989900 which has two ball mounts,...

  • Availability of 2-Inch Ball Mount with 6-Inches of Drop and 7500-lb Capacity
  • For a 2-inch fixed ball mount with 6-inches of drop you can check out the linked page which shows you five such items. None comes with a pre-installed hitch ball. For a 2-inch ball rated for 7500-lbs you can use part # 63845. You may instead be able to use an adjustable ball mount like # BWTS10038B from B&W, which offers adjustable height from 5-1/2-inches of rise down to 5-inches of drop. It features two included hitch balls, a 1-7/8-inch rated for 3500-lbs and a 2-inch rated for 7500....
