Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45448 Review

Today we're going to review part number C45448. This is the Curt Ball Mount for 2 inch hitches with the 12,000 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 vehicles 2 inch hitch receiver opening and is secured in place by a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock which will go through the pin hole right here. Now the pin and clip or the lock we do sell those separately. They are listed on this product page as a related product.

Just to give you an idea I actually pulled a pin and clip that will be used for this application. Now the ball platform right down here this provides a mounting point for your hitch ball. Now the hitch ball that goes in here we do sell those separately. They are not included because you do have to get the correct size for your application and they are listed on this product page as a related product and again just to give you an idea this is what the hitch ball would be that get install into the ball mount. Now both the drop like it is now, if we flip it over into the rise position they are available to ensure leveled towing between your trailer and your tow vehicle. If you'll notice on the shank itself it is a solid steel shank provides maximum strength and durability. Has a nice corrosion resistant high gloss black powder coat finish on it and the specs on this again the application is for 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver openings.

Gross towing weight capacity on this ball mount is 12,000 pounds. Tongue weight capacity is 1200 pounds. Now I do want to give you some measurements on this. First one we are going to do is the length. Whenever they talk about the length on a ball mount they are basically talking about the measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole and that will give you the length of the ball mount. What I'm going to try to do here is put a ruler on this to give you the exact measurement.

If we hold this roughly on the center and if we put the ruler right there, and if we bring in across to the center of the hitch pin hole you are looking at 9 3/8 inches for the length of this. Now also the rise and drop measurements. Right now it's in the drop position and the drop position we measure from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform here. One thing I do want to mention when I give you this is you'll notice on the Curt ball mount themselves they'll give you a rise and drop, but what they basically do is they just round it off to the nearest number. What I'm going to try to do is give you the exact measurement of the drop and the rise. If we put a ruler on this and go up to the top of the shank right here, you'd be looking at a drop of 8 inches and on the rise we'll just flip this over just like that and we'll measure at the top of the shank, top of the ball platform, put a ruler on this to give us a better idea and you could see it be a 7 inch rise. Another measurement that is critical is the ball hole diameter.

That would be the diameter of this whole here for your hitch ball to go into. On that it's going to be right at 1 1/4 inches for the ball hole diameter and that's critical because when you go to get your correct size hitch ball, you want to make sure the shank diameter is going to match the ball hole diameter and the ball mount. The shank diameter of your hitch ball will need to be 1 1/4 inches to match the ball hole diameter in your ball mount. The last measurement is going to be our pin hole diameter right here and that is a 5/8 inch diameter, it uses your 5/8 inch diameter pin and clip. This part does come with a limited lifetime warranty. Now what I'm going to do now is give you an idea. Here is a example of a 2 inch hitch receiver opening like would be on your vehicle. What we are going to do is to put it in the drop position. We'll just slide this shank all the way in, push it until the hitch pin holes line up, slide your pin through, put your clip on and you can see that it is locked to your hitch receiver in the drop position. Now if you do need to flip it over for the rise position, just slide it out, we'll flip it over, just slide it in this way, align the holes up, put your pin through, put your clip in there, just like that and if I scoot it forward, you'll probably able to see it has it in the rise position just like that. Very easy to switch from one to the other. Now we'll go ahead and just take that out and move that out of the way, but that should do it for the review on part number C45448, the Curt Ball Mount for 2 inch hitches with the 12,000 pound weight capacity. .

This ball mount has served it purpose well. I purchased a new travel trailer that is heavy enough to require a weight distribution hitch when using the factory installed Class III hitch on our Dodge RAM 2500. I decided to upgrade to a Class V hitch combined with this ball mount to take delivery of the TT in order to defer decisions about a WD hitch until the actual load conditions were known. The hour trip home with this setup worked very well. Once the trailer was outfitted I was able to determine the actual tongue weight of the loaded trailer and I decided to purchase an appropriately sized Reese Straight Line WD hitch. However, this ball mount comes in handy for moving the trailer short distances without hassling with the WD system. The purchase experience through etrailer.com was first rate. 368826

After one year and much use the part still looks and works is if it was purchased yesterday. Harsh salt water environment had no adverse effect at all.

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Ball Mount with 9 Inch Drop Recommendation
  • We only carry one fixed ball mount that has 9 inches of drop. For that you would want the Curt ball mount part # C45112. For a 2 inch ball you would want the part # 63845, for a 2-5/16 inch ball you would want part # C40007.

  • 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,...

  • 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.

  • Selecting Correct Fixed or Adjustable Ball Mount for Class A Motorhome Towing Trailer
  • It sounds like you are looking for an adjustable ball mount to allow hitching your Terra Class A motorhome to your trailer, which is about 8-inches lower to the ground. The linked article explains how to measure to determine the correct fixed ball mount, or you can select an adjustable one if you prefer, such as # FA42-00-2800. I linked our main page for 2-inch ball mount with 8-inches of drop, such as Curt # C45448, and I also linked our adjustable ball mounts which are probably a better...
