Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45296 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number C45296. This is the Curt Ball Mount for 2" hitches. It's going to have a gross towing weight of 7,500 pounds with a maximum tongue weight of 750 pounds. This ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion is going to slide into your hitch's receiver opening. Then the ball platform area is going to provide a good mounting point for your hitch ball.

Hitch balls are going to be sold separately. If you need one, you can check out some of our options here at etrailer.com. Now, you can use this mount in neither the drop or the rise position. Both positions are available to help ensure a more leveled tow. It's going to be made from a nice sturdy steel construction. You can see back here it has a hallow shank.

It's going to feature a chrome plating so it's designed to stand up well against rust and corrosion. Once you have this inside of your hitch you need to secure it with a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. Those are sold separately. A couple great options are going to be part number C21500. That's going to be your 5/8" pin, it's going to come with the clip or you can get a hitch pin and lock with part number 7683. This is going to fit 2" x 2" trailer hitch receivers.

If we take the measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole, that's going to give us a measurement of 8 1/2". This ball mount would install in the rise position. It's going to give us a rise of 2 1/4 of an inch. That's measuring from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform. With it installed in the drop position, doing that same measurement, it's going to give us a drop of 3 1/2".

The ball hole diameter on this mount is going to give us a diameter of 1". 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. Curt's going to cover this with a limited lifetime warranty. It's real quick, I just want to go ahead and show you how to install. Pretty simple, all you got to do is slide the shank into the receiver tube of your hitch. Line up your pin hole and then insert your 5/8" pin and clip for hitch pin and lock. That's going to do it for our review of part number C45296. This is the Curt Ball Mount for 2" hitches. .

Purchased because I wanted something that looked a little better than the standard black ball mount and couldn’t find the size I wanted in aluminum. I used it 3 times last season and put it away for the winter in my garage. It was never on the truck while salt was on the road. Pulled it out the other day and it is a disgusting rusty mess. Attempts to clean off the rust were unsuccessful it was that bad. Total waste of money BTW the picture is post cleaning, it was even worse before 505294


Comments

Allan, thank you for your review. If you live in a humid area or store the ball mount in a humid environment it may rust. I would recommend to store the ball mount in a ball mount bag when not in use such as part # ETBMB
etrailer.com Ball Mount Bag
$9.98
. I also recommend purchasing an aluminum ball mount such as part # DTBM4400
Flash Solid Aluminum Ball Mount - 4" Drop, 3" Rise - 10,000 lbs
$79.95
. This fastway ball mount has a 4 inch , 3 inch rise, supports up to 14,000 pounds and takes a 1 inch diameter shank hitch ball. One of our installers owns part # DTBM4400
Flash Solid Aluminum Ball Mount - 4" Drop, 3" Rise - 10,000 lbs
$79.95
. He kept the ball mount in his hitch receiver for a year, exposed to the elements and it showed very insignificant signs of corrosion. I have also attached a link about rust prevention.

High-quality finish. Feels solid. Fit as described; we're using it in the raised position. Love those etrailer videos with their rulers and detailed measurements! They really helped me pinpoint the right product. 385420
