Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45090 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number C45090. This is the Curt Ball Mount with a 6-inch rise 8-inch drop rated at 5000 pounds. This ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your towed vehicle. The shank is going to slide into your vehicle's hitch, and then the ball platform is going to provide a good mounting point for your hitch ball. That's going to be sold separately. It's made from a sturdy steel construction.

You can see here on the back side that it does feature a nice hollow shank. It's also going to feature a corrosion-resistant high gloss black powder coat finish. You can use this mount in either the drop or rise position to ensure a more level tow. Once you have this inside of your hitch, you're going to need to secure with a 5/8-inch pin and clip or hitch pin and lock. Those are going to be sold separately, and you can refer to our website to check out some of your options.

It is designed for a 2-inch by 2-inch trailer hitch receiver. If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of where the ball hole mounts, that measurement is going to be 11-1/2 inches. Now with it installed in this position, this would be our rise position. If you we're to measure from the top of the shank to the top of your ball platform, you're going to get a rise of 6 inches. Now using the ball mount in this position is going to give you a gross towing weight of 3500 pounds with a towing weight capacity of 300 00:01:27 FROM THIS POINT ON, VIDEO IS BLACK AND THERE IS NO AUDIO.

I purchased a break controller, drop ball mount and a 2 5/16 ball and I'm very pleased with all items. Delivery was very fast and prices were great. I will use etrailer.com again. 171405

I should have paid closer attention to the hole dimension of this item. A lot of times when you buy a product, you get a notification that says “people that bought this item also bought”, then it lists additional related items. That is when I bought the wrong size ball, I bought the first one that was shown, assuming it would fit. I neglected to read the description in detail. 484997

I ordered the Curt Ball Mount w/6"rise, 8" drop as I had a special need as my van had a lower hitch attachment than my full side truck. The Ball mount provided the exact clearance that I needed to tow as I was able to use the 6" rise side to raise the attachment point on my van. Very happy with my purchase. 440081

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • How to Pick Out Ball Mount for Honda Odyssey for Additional Rise
  • So what you need is the correct ball mount rise/drop that will allow your trailer to be towed level. If you did need a ball mount with a 6 inch rise we have the # C45090 though. For hitch balls you would want part # 63845 for a 2 inch ball or # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch ball. I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will first measure the height from the ground...

  • Recommended Fixed Ball Mount For 6 Inch Rise
  • It is absolutely safe and legal to use a ball mount turned over to make a rise in the hitch height. For a 6 inch rise, I recommend using the Curt Ball Mount - 6" Rise, 8" Drop - 11-1/2" Long - 5,000 lbs # C45090. The weld is secure using a rise or drop. You simply need to reverse the hitch ball. For a 2 inch hitch ball, I recommend # 63845 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball # 63847. If you are looking for more versatility in options, I recommend and adjustable ball mount like the MaxxTow...

  • How to Choose the Correct Ball Mount for a 2017 Subaru Forester
  • In order to choose the correct ball mount you will need to measure from the ground to the top of the inside edge on the vehicle's receiver tube opening and then compare that to the distance from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on the trailer while level. The distance between these two measurements will give you the correct amount of rise/drop you will need to look for in a ball mount. For a ball mount with a 5" rise I recommend part # C45336 and for a ball mount with a 6" rise...

  • How to Pick Out Correct Rise/Drop Ball Mount for 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • When determining the amount of rise/drop ball mount you'd need the two dimensions you need are the distance from the top of the hitch opening to the ground and from the bottom of the trailer coupler when it's sitting level. The difference between those two dimensions is the rise/drop you'd need. So for sure we know the hitch measurement is 12 inches. Lets say your coupler height was 18 inches from the bottom of it that would mean you'd need a 6 inch rise like # C45090. If your...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan SE
  • To be able to tow 2,000 pounds with your 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan you will need to have either the 3.8 liter or 4.0 liter motor and the vehicle will need to be equipped with the factory tow package. Then at the very least it can tow 3,000 pounds with 6 to 7 people and luggage in the van. I have included a picture of 2 pages from the owners manual showing the different capacities based on how the vehicle is equipped. If you are not sure if your van has the tow package you can ask a dealer...

  • 6 inch Rise Ball Mount Recommendation for Draw Tite Hitch Installed on 2017 Mercedes GLC300
  • With a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 76082 installed on your 2017 Mercedes GLC300 if you need a 6 inch rise you can take a ball mount and flip it upside down. For example we have the Curt ball mount part # C45090 which when upside down gives 6 inches of rise.

  • Recommended Ball Mount with Correct Drop to Tow Trailer Level
  • It sounds like you need a ball mount with a drop of 8 or 9 inches. A couple options are the Curt # C45090 with 8 inches of drop and the Curt # C45112 with 9-1/4 inches of drop. Another option since you're not positive exactly how your trailer is going to sit when hooked up is to go with an adjustable ball mount. The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS10-2 will give you up to 10 inches of drop so you have the ability to choose the best height for your trailer. This also has a built in tongue...

  • Distance from Hitch Pin Hole to Weld Gusset on Curt Ball Mount # C45090
  • On the Curt Ball Mount # C45090 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the near edge of the reinforcing gusset is 3-inches. From the hole center to the end of the shank the measure is 2-1/2-inches. I prepared a photo diagram for you to show these dimensions. I also linked our main page for all 2-inch ball mounts.

  • 11 Inch Ball Mount Recommendation to Tow Trailer Level
  • The goal is to tow you trailer as level as possible. So based on the dimensions you just listed you would want 11 inches of drop so that your trailer can be towed level. For that you would want the Ball Mount part # 80248 that has 11 inches of drop.

  • Ball Mount with a 6 Inch Rise and 1 Inch Diameter Ball Hole
  • We have some options for ball mounts that have a 6 inch rise. Curt ball mount # C45090 has a 6 inch rise and when in the rise position it is rated for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight and 350 pounds tongue weight. The rise is measured from the top of the receiver opening to the top of the ball platform. We also have # C45100 with 6-1/4 inch rise. Capacity is the same as the above ball mount. For 5 inches of rise we have # DTBM4600 rated for 10,000 pounds gross trailer weight. I have...

  • Ball Mount with More than 5 Inches of Drop to Tow a Trailer Level with a Jeep Commander
  • We do have ball mounts that you can use that have more drop than 5-1/2 inches. But you have to choose one based on the hitch you have, 1-1/4 inch receiver opening or 2 inch receiver opening. On a 1-1/4 inch hitch you have to use the ball mount indicated by the hitch manufacturer or it can void the hitch warranty. But if you have a 2 inch receiver then you can use any ball mount that fits your needs. I have included a link to the right that shows how to measure to determine the proper...

  • Recommended Shank and Head for Unique Rise Required on 2011 Toyota Venza
  • You are correct the Curt # C45090 has the 3 inch measurement from the hitch pin center to the edge of that support. You have a deeply recessed hitch based on your description, so there are not any ball mounts that will fit. My recommendation is the Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17122 which has that support bar 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin. Then you can use the head # C17107 for a hitch ball platform compatible.

I have attached installation videos for each on a similar Routan for you to reference. If you check out the video for the Draw-Tite # 75579, we found that when we installed it on a 2012 Routan that the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver opening was 12-1/4 inches.
