Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45338 Review

Today, we're going to review part number C45338. This is the curved ball mount for 2" hitches with the 10,000 pound weight capacity. Now this heavy duty ball mount will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion right here, will slide into your vehicle's 2" hitch receiver opening and is secured in place with either a hitch pinning clip or a hitch lock through the pinhole right here. Now the pinning clip or the lock, they are sold separately. We do sell them on our website and we do list them on this product page, it has a related product.

To give you an idea, this would be a pining clip that would be used to hold it in to your hitch receiver. Now the ball platform, this down here, this provides the mounting point for your hitch ball. The hitch ball would go through there and torque into place and the hitch ball depends on what size you need for your application and they are also sold separately and we do have some listed on this product page, as related products. Here's an example of the hitch ball that you would buy to install into the ball mount. Now, what's nice on this ball mount, both the drop and the rise positions are available, to ensure level towing between your trailer and your tow vehicle. The shank on it is a nice sturdy, hollow steel shank, provides maximum strength and durability and it has a nice corrosion resistant, high gloss, black, powder coat finish. Now, a few specs on this. This is designed to fit a 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver opening.

Gross towing weight capacity is 10,000 pounds and the tongue weight capacity is 1,000 pounds. Now, I do want to give you a few measurements on this. We'll start with the length. A ball mount length is always determined by the measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. So if we take a ruler.

Try to give you . Put this on the center. You can see to the ball hole, you're looking at about 9 and 3/8" for the length of this ball mount. There is also the rise and the drop, right now we're in the drop position. Now, one other thing that I do want to mention that on a lot of the Curt ball mounts, right here, they will list the rise and the drop measurement but those are usually just an estimate .. They round them off, they give you an estimate, they round them off, what we're going to do is actually measure it and get you the exact measurement of the rise and the drop.

So right now in the drop position we're measure from the top of the shank to the ball mount platform. So if we put the ruler on that right to your top of the shank right here, your drop is going to be 8 1/4". For the rise, we'll just flip this over, that would be your rise, and again from the top of your shank to the top of the ball platform, let's go ahead and put the ruler across and put this ruler on there to give you an idea, you're looking at right at 7" for the rise. Another measurement you want to make sure you remember is the ball hole diameter, right here. The ball hold diameter on this one is going to be 1 1/4". That's critical because when you purchase your hitch ball you do want to make sure you get the right diameter ball but you also want to make sure that the shank diameter is the same that will match this ball hole diameter right here on your ball mount. So in this case, it would be 1 1/4". The pinhole diameter, where your hitch pin or lock will go through that's 5/8", so you would use a pin with a 5/8" diameter. Now this part does come with a limited lifetime warranty. So what I want to do now is I'm going to bring in now an example of a 2" hitch receiver opening, like would be on your vehicle and you just slide your shank right in there, push it back until your hitch pin hole lines up, put your pin through, put your clip on there, just like that and then it's locked into place and you've got your ball mount in the drop position. Now if you need to switch that over to the rise position, just pull your pin and clip out, slide your ball mount out, flip it over, slide it in, line your pinholes up, put your pin and your clip in there, and then as you can see you have this, basically, right in your rise position to where you need it. Very easy, simple to do. Take your pin and clip out and we'll slide it out of the hitch receiver. That should do it for the review on part number C45338 the curved ball mount for 2" hitches with the 10,000 pound weight capacity. .

Ask the Experts about this Curt Ball Mounts
Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • How to Determine the Amount of Drop Needed on Ball Mount for Towing Trailer
  • When determining the amount of rise or drop you will need on the ball mount for your towing setup, you just need to take a couple simple measurements. The first, which you have already taken, is from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver when your vehicle is parked and on level ground. The second is from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when it is also parked on level ground. You did state you took a measurement when the trailer was attached to a different vehicle,...

  • Ball Mount to Clear Rear Bumper on 2013 Toyota Sienna and Provide Close to 7 Inch Rise
  • Based on your measurements getting exactly what you need is a little tricky but I have some possible options for you. I can get you close to the rise you need by using ball mount # D-28, which has a 4 inch rise, with hi rise ball # C40034 or # C40032, both of these balls offer another 2 inches of height for a total rise of 6 inches. The tongue weight of the trailer will pull it down a little so at most you would be off level by 1 inch.

  • Recommended 2 Inch Hitch Ball with 10,000 lb Capacity for Curt Ball Mount
  • There is a 2 inch hitch ball rated for 10,000 lbs that is compatible with the Curt Ball Mount # C45338. I recommend the 2" Hitch Ball # A-90 because it is rated for 10,000 lbs and has a shank that measures 1-1/4" diameter x 2-5/8 long so there will be minimal excess once the nut is tightened. I have added a link to a video review of this hitch ball for you to check out as well.

  • Can Curt Ball Mount Part # C45338 be Used with Tow Dolly
  • Yes, if you had a tow dolly that attaches to a hitch ball the Curt ball mount part # C45338 that you referenced would work well with it. For hitch balls you'd want the part # A-90 for a 2 inch ball or part # C40036 for a 2-5/16 inch ball.

  • Does Capacity of Ball Mount Change if Used in Rise Position
  • The towing and tongue weight capacity of the Curt Ball Mount # C45338 does not change if you use it in the rise position; it has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and towing capacity of 10,000 lbs no matter if you use it to get 8-1/4 inches of drop or 7 inches of rise. Keep in mind your capacity is limited to that of your truck and hitch receiver. For example, the Curt Trailer Hitch # C14006 for your 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 also has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and towing...

  • Hitch Extended to Keep Trailer From Hitting Flat Bed Truck While Turning
  • Since flat beds are longer than regular truck beds situations like yours can occur more often than with a regular truck. Using a longer ball mount or a hitch extender is a viable option. Since the longest ball mount with an 8 inch drop is # C45338. It measures 9-3/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. If that is not enough length then an extender will need to be used. The use of an extender reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch...

  • Ball Mount with 8 Inch Rise Needed To Tow Boat Trailer Level
  • I recommend the Curt Ball Mount # C45338. This ball mount offers a 7 inch rise, which will put you within an inch of level. This ball mount will fit 2 inch hitch receivers and has a gross towing capacity of 10,000 pounds and a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 pounds. In order to have an 8 inch rise with a high enough towing capacity, you will want the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount # MT70067. This adjustable ball mount has a maximum rise of 8 inches. The gross towing weight capacity...

  • 12K-Rated 2-Inch Ball Mount with 8-Inches of Drop
  • For a 2-inch ball mount rated for 12,000-lbs that has 8-inches of drop we offer two options you can see on the linked page. Part # 4283 from Draw-Tite provides 7-inches of rise or 8-inches of drop, as does Curt # C45448. Both take a hitch ball, sold separately, like 10K-rated # A-90. This is the highest-rated 2-inch ball we offer. We do not have a 12K ball mount with this rise/drop that comes with the hitch ball pre-mounted.

  • Hitch Pin Hole to Support Gusset Distance on Curt 10K Ball Mount 8-1/2 Inch Drop
  • On Curt ball mount # C45338 it measures approximately 5 inches from the center of the pin hole to the support gusset. However, the welds could be slightly different from one to the next so on some it will be less and others it will be more but only by a fraction of an inch. I have linked a video review of this ball mount for you.

  • Ball Mount Needed With at Least 8 inch Drop, 1-1/4 inch Ball Hole Diameter, and is 3/4 inches Thick
  • Yes! The Curt Ball Mount # C45338, which has a 7 inch Rise and a 8-1/4 inch Drop, has a ball hole diameter of 1-1/4 inches and the ball hole platform is 3/4 inches thick. You will want to secure this to your trailer hitch receiver with a pin and clip # C21500. You can use either a hitch ball that has a 2 inch diameter # A-90 or a 2-5/16 inch diameter # 19286.

  • Gaining Rise With a Hitch Ball
  • You can get get a hitch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank that will give you 2 inches of rise with a 2 inch ball # C40034, though that is going to limit your towing capacity to 6,000 lbs. If you needed to stick with a 10,000 lb towing capacity, then you would need a new ball mount, # C45338 for 8 inches of drop, # AMSC6 for 6 inches of drop or if four inches of drop was needed, # AMSC4. I have added links to video reviews of each of these ball mounts for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Ball Mount with 7 Inches of Rise on a 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • If you're measuring from the ground to the inside top of the receiver opening and that is 13 inches, and the bottom of your trailer's coupler is 20 inches, then you'll need a ball mount with a 7 inch rise. I've attached a help article on ball mounts that shows how to properly measure if you need help. For a Class III ball mount with a 7 inch rise, the Curt # C45338 will work for you. It also has a towing capacity of 10,000 pounds with 1,000 pounds of gross tongue weight. For a 2 inch...
