Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45240 Review

Today we're going to review part number C45240. This is the Curt Dual Length Ball Mount for 2 inch hitches with the 7500 pound weight capacity. Now this ball mount will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. This part right here the shank will slide into your vehicles 2 inch hitch receiver and is held in place by a hitch pin and clip hitch lock. Now the hitch pin and clip with the hitch lock we do sell separately on our website. They are listed on this product page as a related product.

Here is an example of the pin and clip that would work with this ball mount. Now the ball platform right here on the ball mount provides a mounting point for your hitch ball to attach to. Now the hitch ball is not included, that again would be sold separately. It is listed on this product page as a related product and you would have to choose the correct hitch ball for your application. Now on this one is called a dual length ball mount and the reason they do that is you'll notice there is two hitch pin holes here. The separate pin holes will let you change the length of the shank and also they are both the drop and the rise positions on this ball mount are available to ensure level towing between your trailer and your tow vehicle. You can see it is a sturdy hollow steel shank.

Provides maximum strength and durability and has a nice corrosion resistant high gloss black powder coat finish on it. This part is made in the USA and again the specs on this, it's designed to fit into a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. Now the length on the ball mount in this one because it's, put it up onto something, this one because it has the dual or the 2 hitch pin holes. You'll going to have 2 different length, you'll going to have the length of the ball mount is always measured from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. Since we've got 2 of them, we'll have 2 lengths here and we'll give you on both of them.

We'll go to the center of the ball hole into the center of the first hole is going to be right at 9 1/4 inches and then from the center of the ball is going to be 12 1/4 inches to the hole furthest back here. 9 1/4 for this one, 12 1/4 on this one. Now it is in the drop position right now. The drop measurement is measured from the top of the shank to the ball platform top. Now on the Curt ball mount sometimes they will stamp on here the drop and rise measurements, but what you need to remember is what they do is they will round those measurement off, they are not exact. What I'm going to try to do is give an exact measurement of the drop.

If we put that on there and go up to the top of the shank, you're going to be looking at right at 5 3/4 inches. Now when it is in the drop position like this, the gross towing weight capacity is 7500 pounds, tongue weight capacity is 750 pounds. If we turn it over and put it into the rise position like that, measurement again is going to be from the top of the shank, top of the ball mount. If we get a ruler, let's put a ruler up on here and then you can see it's going to be a rise of 4 1/2 inches and again when it is in the rise position the gross towing weight capacity will be 6000 pounds, tongue weight will be 600 pounds. Now the hitch ball hole diameter which is right here is going to be a 1 inch diameter hole and that's what you want to make sure you know because when you go to get your hitch ball for your application, you want to make sure the shank diameter of the hitch ball will be 1 inch to fit this ball hole diameter and the shank diameter is this portion right here. You want to make sure the hitch ball you have is 1 inch diameter to fight into there and the pin hole diameter right up here the 2 pin holes are going to be a 5/8 inch size, there use a 5/8 inch pin diameter just like that. This part does come with a limited lifetime warranty. Now what I want to do is just give you an idea of how this inserts into a 2 inch hitch receiver opening. Got an example right here. If you are going to use it in the drop position, just slide it right in. If you are going to use it in the longest position, put it in the back hole. Go ahead and put the pin in and you go ahead and put the clip in and then you can see how it is extended out. Then if you want to move it closer with different length, pull the pin and clip out, just push it in closer to the two vehicle until those holes line up, put your pin in, put your clip in and then you are ready to go and you can see that the ball mount will be a little bit closer to your tow vehicle. Now if you want to switch it around to a rise position and just slide it completely out, turn it over, slide it in until the hole lines up, put your pin and clip in and then you'll see that you'll have it right in the rise position just like that. That should do it for the review part number C45240. This is the Curt Dual Length Ball Mount for 2 inch hitches with the 7500 pound weight capacity. .

Needed this extended hitch with the drop to work with my "Rock Tamers". As this truck is new and I was leaving town in a week, I also needed fast delivery. Four days later the hitch arrived as promised and I'm on my way. Perfect product for my needs and great service/delivery! 405612

Very pleased with my purchase. Ball mount and 2" ball are heavy and appear to be well made. Just purchased a new pickup truck and the rear end is a few inches higher than my old truck. The 6" drop on this ball mount will keep my trailer riding level. Thanks guys. 296045

This ball mount was just what I needed. I've got a 2015 Escape but the little trailer I am going to pull was modified and raised 4" for off-road use. Well, my hitch was about 4" too low!! So, getting this ball mount receiver was just what I needed to get the added height on the hitch ball! Now, I'm ready to go! 484444

Ask the Experts about this Curt Ball Mounts

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Determining Correct Ball Mount or Draw Bar for your Vehicle and Trailer Combination for Level Towing
  • To find the correct ball mount you want to measure from the inside top opening of the receiver on your truck to the ground. Then you want to measure the trailer from the bottom of the coupler to the ground when the trailer is level. The difference between those two measurements will give you the proper rise or drop for your application. I've attached an article to assist. If you don't want to use a fixed mount, or if you pull different trailers, you may want to consider an adjustable...

  • Distance from Second Pin Hole to Platform Bracket of Ball Mount C45240
  • The second pin hole of the Curt ball mount part # C45240 that you referenced is 3 inches behind the first one. That means the second pin hole is 6-1/4 inches from the weld bracket.

  • 2-Inch Ball Mount with 5-Inches of Rise Rated for at Least 7500-lbs
  • For a 2-inch ball mount that provides at least 7500-lb capacity along with your required minimum rise of 4-1/4-inches I suggest the Curt forged ball mount # C45342 rated for 17K or part # C45336 rated for 10K. These and other ball mounts are shown on the linked page.

  • Longer Ball Mount Recommendation with 6 inch Drop for Towtector Mud Flap
  • The TowTector is very similar to our RockTamer mudflaps like the part # ERT00108. These require a longer shank ball mount so that they can attach. For that we have the Curt ball mount # D-28 which is 14-1/4 inches long and has a 6 inch drop. It only has a 6k capacity though. For a somewhat shorter ball mount that's similar we have the Curt # C45240 which does have a 7,500 lb capacity and is 12-1/4 inches long from pin hole to ball hole center.

  • 4-1/2 inch Rise Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2007 Chrysler 300C Towing Trailer
  • You are correct, you do need a 4-1/2 inch rise ball mount to tow your trailer level. The best option will be the Curt ball mount part # C45240. When used in the rise position it will give you exactly a 4-1/2 inch rise. This ball mount also has two hitch pins so that it can be extended out past your rear bumper if the clearance is needed. For a 2 inch ball to fit this ball mount you would want the part # 63845.

  • Recommended Fixed Ball Mount With 4 to 4-3/4 Inch Rise With At Least 7500 lb Capacity
  • For your fixed ball mount with at 4 to 4-3/4 inch rise, I recommend the Curt Dual Length Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 4-1/2" Rise, 5-3/4" Drop - 7,500 lbs # C45240. This ball mount will also need a hitch ball like # 63845 for a 2 inch option or # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch option. I've linked a page to your option for 7500 lbs with that 4 inch or more rise.

  • Is there a Curt Dual Length Ball Mount with a 2 Inch Drop
  • Getting the right drop (or rise) is important for sure. Curt does have ball mount # C45220 which is a dual length ball mount with a 2-3/8 inch drop. But they do not have one that is exactly 2 inches. The extra 3/8 of an inch is still well within acceptable limits of what is considered level so it is a great option that will work for you. You don't want to drill any holes in a ball mount because doing so will void the warranty and could actually compromise the structural integrity of...

  • Recommended Ball Mount and Bike Rack for a 2011 Toyota 4Runner Towing a 1976 Scotty Sportsman
  • My best recommendation for your 4Runner and Scotty would be the 5-3/4 inch drop Curt Ball Mount # C45240 used in combination with the Swagman XCS # S64664. This bike rack is specially designed to mount to a 2 inch ball mount which then will accommodate the low drop that your Scotty Sportsman requires to be level. The Curt ball mount has a longer shank which will accommodate the space needed for the bike rack and then a second mounting hole in case you choose to tow without the bike...

  • Ball Mount With 4-1/2 Inch Rise for 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • For a ball mount with exactly a 4-1/2" rise you will need the Curt Dual Length Ball Mount # C45240. This ball mount has two hitch pin holes so you can use it with different lengths, either 9-1/4" or 12-1/4". It fits a 2" trailer hitch and has a 6,000 lb towing capacity and 600 lb tongue weight capacity when used in the rise position. For a hitch ball you can use 2" Hitch Ball # 63845 or 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # 63847, depending on the size of the ball your trailer's coupler accepts. You...
