Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - C45900 Review

Today we're going to take a look at our Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount, number C45900. This is a big one when you include the double hitch ball with the shank, you've got about 32 pounds and as you can see here, that is a solid metal shank. Has a built in anti-rattle device which you can see here and I'll show you in just a bit how that's used. It has a powder coat finish for durability. It fits two inch trailer hitch receivers and taking a look at some measurements here, from the mounting edge to the end of the shank is about 12 inches. The height of the mounting edge here is about 9 3/4 inch, and the width of the shank is 2 inches.

The overall capacity for this item is 14,000 pounds with an overall tongue weight capacity of 1,400 pounds. The double hitch ball has a two inch ball and a 2 5/16 inch ball. The capacity for the 2 inch ball is 10,000 pounds and its a 14,000 pound capacity for the 2 5/16 inch ball. This ball mount has a maximum rise of 5 1/4 inches and a maximum drop of 6 inches. Now, we'll show you how to install that.

You will take this and you'll use the holes here on the side, match that up, take one of your gold pins, line that up, and then you will take one of the gold cotter pins, pop that right in there and the same with the bottom. Line up the holes and then pop that cotter pin in. To use the anti-rattle device, as you can see here on the back, you have holes here. You're going to find the hole where you can see the hitch pole in the back and that's down here at the very bottom one. There are three total holes.

You'll finger tighten that a little bit and then use the Allen wrench that comes with it and tighten that further, and you'll want to make sure that's pretty tight to prevent the hitch balls from rattling. Once you're finished you'll line this up and as you can see here we are in the maximum drop of six inches. If you wanted the rise, just flip that up and you would have your maximum rise of 5 1/4 inches. And, as I was saying, once you are ready, you'll just slide that into your trailer hitch, again line up the holes, you'll pop the hitch pin in and this comes with this ball mount, then you'll pop that cotter pin in and you're good go. That should about do it for our Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount number C45900.

I'm very happy with this hitch. It is very sturdy construction with good welds and plenty of steel. I like the large gusset between the tube and channel. I will definitely feel safe towing my skidsteer with it. 554034

Very happy with this product. Very easy to install and put together. The welding on this is fantastic and very durable. The two balls on this product are perfect for my needs. Over all I'm very happy with my purchase, great price, great product and great experience with this website. 235610

If you are hesitating about buying this product, DON'T. Get it NOW. Life is too short to go sifting through your truck tool box to find the right size ball with the right size drop hitch or remembering you left what you needed somewhere else on some other vehicle. This product is all you need. Its stout, gives you a 2" and a 2 5/16" and all the height adjust-ability a guy could ask for, that is unless you are driving a truck that is jacked up 4 and a half feet. This product was shipped quickly, well packaged and was just what I ordered. Its stout and with a 14,000# rating, all most of us would ever need. Swapping balls or the height is as easy as pulling two clevis pins. there is an anti vibration bushing, but having towed with it an without, I don't bother moving it, but then again, I drive a very loud second gen dodge 2500 24V diesel so if it was making noise, I wouldn't hear it any way. I put a locking pin in mine and it lives on the back of my pick up. Gone are the days of searching for the right hitch. Do yourself a favor, buy the C45900 adjustable ball mount. And if you were wondering if you can put some rock tamers on with this hitch, wonder no more - you can. The hitch has two cross drilled holes in it and I simply chose the hole closer to the body of the truck which extended the hitch out enough to mount my rock tamers. Seriously, buy this hitch if you tow. Even if you don't tow, you might want to purchase it just for pride of ownership. 521097


Comments

A year later and I am as enthusiastic about this hitch as I was when I first started using it. There is a little oxidation on the pins, but they have enough play that it doesnt bind them and moving the hitch and balls is a breeze. There is no oxidation, rust, paint chipping or porosity on any of the welds. This is a great product.

I have been using this heavy duty hitch for a little over a year. I move a lot of heavy boats and pontoons in my business and I am always swapping between 2" and 2 5/16". This set up is quick and easy to use. The best for me is it's all right there. When I swap the sizes I am not wondering where the other ball is or, and I've done this, leave the other ball on the bumper, never to be seen again. 431479

Very nicely made product for the intended purpose. Have not used it yet, but maybe the only questionable part as far as longevity and functionality will be the anti-rattle rubber snubber. Time will tell. 314511

I am very impressed with C45900 ball mount. Curt is an excellent manufacturer. The only thing I did not like are the snap rings on the pins. I have seen those get hooked unintentionally or be pulled to steal the ball mount. I replaced Curt's pins with Grade 8 bolts, drilled holes and secured with a padlock. It would be nice if someone made a locking hitch pin with enough span for the channel. I added the reflective tape for higher visibility. I live in Phoenix where they have a plant. Please run this idea by them and let me know what they think. The two locking hitch pins would only raise the price by $50. If you have a vendor who has longer pins please let me know. Using unsecured pins is asking for trouble. Thanks--Jerry 270071

Excellent product. Installed in minutes. I tow a 14 k lb dump trailer. Needed the additional rise on the hitch. The draw bar is adjustable so that I can tow my utility trailer as well. High quality like most products I have purchased from etrailer.com 437370

I love how easy this ballmount is to change between trailers. I haul 3 different trailers, all require a different combination of height and ball size, and this ballmount allows me to do that easily. I got this particular one because my flatbed needed something with a 14k lb capacity. The only thing I don't like about this ballmount is it is pretty heavy, but that's the price you pay for the high capacity. I've had it for a year now and it's upholding great. I put it in the cab when not in use, so I'm sure that helps. 333981

Excellent quality, works well feels really solid with a load no vibration. I was a little concerned with the lift on the truck and 11,500 lbs. no problems at all and price was great.

I am not giving this item a poor review, but instead of the customer service that I have recently received from e-trailer. In the past I have bought thru e-trailer because they have the best prices and the most awesome reviews and instruction in their website. Recently I purchased this hitch. I had thought that I was clear when I ordered thru the phone and gave my current address. Instead, the hitch was sent to an old address that e-trailer had on file. I admit, I should have looked at the email that was sent out immediately to check where the item was going to be shipped, and that was my own fault. Once, I did look to see where the item was going to be shipped on the day of shipment, I found out that it was being sent to the old address that they had on file. I immediately called e-trailer to try and divert back the item, but was told at I was to call UPS on my own (which I ended up spending half the am doing) and that I would have to order the same item, pay for the item (again) and then the shipping difference once they received the original hitch back. I was pretty frustrated at this point because I lived in an apartment at the time and I did'nt know if the item would be picked up by the current tenant. I basically had a friend pick the item up for me and ship it to me with a $50 plus shipping cost. I called back e-trailer and talked with the original customer rep who helped me with the order, and they admitted that they remember my order and the correct address that I gave, but did'nt know why the item was shipped to the old address. Maybe it was essentially a computer mistake from old records, but I felt like I was not given any other option other than, but another hitch and get charged again, and pay more shipping on top. I am doing that now just to get the hitch back to me. Anyways, this just left a bad taste in my mouth to ordering from e-trailer again. I really liked that website and past customer service, but an item that I just purchased just became an expensive and labor laddened item that I was hoping to purchase at a "good and fair price." 541412

I use this Curt Ball Mount for work. I pull a dump trailer that requires the larger ball, and other trailers that require the smaller ball. Being able to just flip the ball over when I need to change it for a different trailer is a huge time saver. The multiple ball height positions available is also a great feature that I take advantage of. This is actually my second purchase of this product. My first was stolen off my truck out of town. When I bought it the second time, I also bought a set of locking pins. Haven't had any problems since. I recommend anyone buying this product to also get a set of locking pins - this product is so good that people will want to steal it from your truck! 705033

Great heavy duty adjustable hitch. Simple pin system to adjust height. no fancy lock to freeze up or rust. It just works. I tow several different trailers with different tongue heights and only have to have one hitch. And it's always on or in the truck. The only downfall is they don't make it in a 8" or 10" drop 683301

Very HD, solid steel and a nice anti corrosion coating on balls. They included a hitch pin too. I know something little but these days you don't usually get the little extras like you used to. Nice job curt. I like the extended length, got my 24'V nose further out and so easy to adjust with no tools like some. The draw backs, if they could extend the length more but it is longer or average and the laws of physics limit length. One thing with HD pickups if they could have made this with an 8" drop itd be nice. I would also have liked to see two extra anti rattle buttons installed. Come on curt, cheap rubber pieces you'd tear if you're regularly moving depending on height. However no vibration or noise and I doubt with a heavy trailer you'd even get it. The design doesn't allow much slop and I'm very pleased with price and unit. If it had a 1 7/8 ball as well and more drop it'd be perfect as I could pull my little 5x7 utility and itd truly be one size fits all. Overall it's a purchase I'm glad I made and you should be too 669650

I had the One Mount hitch previously and sold it. This is the same hitch. I like it because it has a high tongue weight capacity and towing capacity. I like it being heavy duty--therefore I am ready at a moments notice to pull almost anything. Not really any parts to break--should last a lifetime. And it cost less than the aluminum ones. 669273

This item works well , good quality , easy to use , One thing the manufacturer could do is make the hole that the hitch pins to the receiver farther back so that the hitch pins up closer to the truck. I had to drill another hole in the hitch, to achieve this. 635662

This is my first choice Hitch. We have several trailers ranging from small 12' to large double axle 20x8.5 tailer that hauls up to 14,000lb. This is my go to hitch even though we have many hitches.

This hitch has worked out great for me over the last year. It’s very heavy duty and easy to adjust. I’ve hauled a 9,000 lb boat, long-distance on numerous occasions without issue. I also haul a landscape trailer on a daily basis weighing over 5,000lbs and haven’t had a single issue. Great hitch that was significantly cheaper than others and is very high quality. I’ve recommended it to several people and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy again. The only thing I would like to have now in a hitch is a tongue weight gauge, but it isn’t necessary. 616804

Hi Carol! Thank you. Yes, I have unpackaged everything and I am hoping to install this weekend. Everything looks good with the exception of the ball mount. I didn’t realize how heavy this thing is! I do like the adjustable height and the option for the the two ball sized. As I re assess my needs a lighter mount is definitely a requirement. The Curt 45900 is almost 35lbs. I also will not require more than a 4” rise/ 2” drop. The rating should be no less than 6,000lbs. for the 2” ball. Could you please make a recommendation(s). 596701

I recommend the fastway aluminum adjustable ball mount part # FA42-00-2400
Flash E Series Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls - 2" Hitch - 4" Drop, 5" Rise
$179.95
. The fastway aluminum ball mount is lightweight but strong. It can handle up to 10,000 lbs of tongue weight, has a 4 inch and 5 inch rise. It also comes with the 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch balls.

This ball mount was perfect. After buying a new trailer and making a few 1000 mile trips with it I freaked out when I realized I was pulling loads approaching 8,000 pounds with a hitch mount rated at 5,000 pounds! This mount solved the problem instantly! It is really well made and has all the necessary features to properly align the trailer to the right height. The different ball sizes allow me to pull both trailers I own. I’ve actually had several people that really know trucks and trailers compliment this unit, especially the solid construction. As with everything I have purchased from eTrailer, delivery was super fast. I would buy this item again in a heartbeat. 595113

This hitch is as KISS as an adjustable hitch could be. Built very well, with good thick gussets, a solid receiver shank, perfect welds and a good powder coat. The fact the trailer balls are built from one forged piece means no worry about a nut loosening and no weld to potentially break. I would go ahead and recommend you buy two replacement rubber isolators and just go ahead and put them in the other two holes in the hitch so no matter where the ball is it has some contact with an isolator without having to move the one it comes with. I highly recommend etrailer, they have great prices and fast shipping and they put out a lot of very helpful videos and pictures of the products they are selling. 593799

He’s used it to tow a 22’ boat, a loaded down 8’ trailer and a 20’ trailer hauling his tractor. This hitch is rugged, easy to adjust and thanks to the easily noticed brass coloring of the ball I haven’t hit my shin on it. 587688

  • Does the Towing Capacity of the Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount Part # C45900 Change
  • The towing capacity of the Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount part # C45900 will vary depending on the hitch ball used i.e. 2" (10,000 lbs) and 2-5/16" (14,000 lbs). However, the towing capacity will not change when using the ball mount in the rise or drop position and everything else in between. In order to protect your investment I recommend using the Curt Hitch Lock part # C23519. I have attached a review video of the ball mount in action for you as well.

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500
  • The best trailer hitch for your 2008 GMC Sierra 2500 will vary depending on what you're going to use it for and possibly whether you have an 8 ft. or 6-1/2 ft. bed. If you need to haul a lot of weight I would suggest the Curt Class V CD 2-1/2" # C15703. This will get the most out of your truck for your dollar and will work with either length of truck beds. The Curt Class III # 13208 will also work with both bed lengths and would be more appropriate if you're not hauling as much weight. I...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2016 Kia Sorento
  • For your 2016 Kia Sorento, I recommend the Curt Class III hitch # C13195, over the Draw-Tite Hitch # 75908. I recommend the Curt hitch receiver because the tongue weight is so much stronger at 750 pounds versus the 500 lb rating of the Draw-Tite. The reason I think people may lean toward the Draw-Tite for your vehicle is the installation is slightly easier saving between 10 and 20 minutes. Some people also don't like that Curt recommends that you use a stabilization strap, # 18050,...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for 2000 GMC Sierra 1500
  • For your 2000 GMC Sierra 1500 there is not a connection to factory wiring for the connector you mentioned. My recommendation is to use the Tekonsha Upgraded Modulite Vehicle Wiring Harness Kit with 4 Pole Trailer Connector (Includes Install Kit) # 119147KIT that is confirmed to work with your truck. I've attached a video of an install on a vehicle just as a reference. This harness will protect your factory wiring from overload and create an easy connection using the quick-splice...

  • Recommended Ball Mount or Weight Distribution Shank for Adjusting Height of Hitch Ball For Level Tow
  • There are many adjustable ball mounts like the Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount # C45900 which are adjustable in rise and drop to account for trailer couplers that are higher or lower than your hitch receiver. You also could use a weight distribution system to help control sway and give you a smoother ride. These systems can utilize different length shanks to also give you that adjustability while supplying the other load leveling and sway correcting assistance. I've attached a...

  • Can Grade 8 Bolts be Used in Place of Pins and Clips for Curt Adjustable Ball Mount # C45900
  • Assuming you use appropriately sized grade 8 bolts for the Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount # C45900 there isn't a particular reason you couldn't them and some lock nuts in place of the included pins and clips. Even though the Grade 8 bolts will be strong enough for this application please just keep in mind that since you are modifying the ball mount it likely wouldn't be covered under warranty if anything were to happen. This may have been the set you already looked at but...

  • How to Choose a Ball Mount for a 2015 Chevrolet Suburban
  • Typically, we do not recommend a certain fixed ball mount unless we know both the distance from the ground to the top of the inside edge on the trailer hitch and the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler while level. You will want to measure the trailer as well and then subtract that measurement from the one you took on your vehicle in order to find the correct ball mount which has the drop you need. However, if you went with an adjustable ball mount then you...

  • How Much Can a 2002 Jeep Liberty Tow and What is Needed
  • According to the owner's manual for your 2002 Jeep Liberty, the maximum towing capacity is 2,000 lbs if you do not have the factory trailer tow package or 5,000 lbs if you do have the factory trailer tow package. If you do not know whether or not you have the factory trailer tow package you can call the dealer with your VIN and ask.

  • Measurement Of The Adjustment Holes On Demco Lunette Ring and Compatibility With Curt Channel Mount
  • Yes, the Demco Lunette Ring - Adjustable Channel Mount - 3" Diameter - Black - 25,000 lbs, # DM09557-81 should be compatible with the Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount - 2" & 2-5/16" Balls - 14,000 lbs, # C45900 but you will be limited by the 14,000 lb capacity of the mount for towing. The Demco lunette ring has 2 inch on center holes and the Curt mount has 1 inch on center adjustability.

  • What Trimming is Required to Add a Trailer Hitch to My 2017 BMW X3?
  • To install the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch # C13316, on your 2017 BMW X3 there is underbody trimming required, but not fascia. There won't be anything trimmed that will be visible from the back of your vehicle. Installation does require temporary removal of bumper during installation, but there is no drilling required. I've attached a video of the installation on an older model X3 for you. The installation hasn't changed, nor has the hitch receiver for your 2017 model with M Sport package....

  • Can Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount # C45900 be Converted to Pintle Setup
  • The shank portion of the Curt # C45900 is the same as the # C45910-15-20 so yes you could use just the pintle portion which is # C45920 if you wanted to convert it to a pintle.

  • Hole Spacing For An Adjustable Ball Mount 2 Inches on Center
  • I see the confusion with the hole spacing and think I can clear it up. The holes are 3/4 inch and they are 2-1/2 inches apart on center. They are not 1-1/4 inches apart however, that is the adjustment increment based on the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Weight Distribution Shank for 2 inch Hitches,# AMAC1, this part is paired with. The actual metal spanning between the holes is 1-3/4 inches. The only similarly styled adjustable ball mount I could find that has a 2 inch on center adjustment...

  • Will Rock Tamer Mudflap Fit With Curt Adjustable Ball Mount # C45900
  • Check out the picture of the Curt adjustable ball mount part # C45900 that you referenced. If you use the rear mounted pin hole you have 3.75 inches to the gusset. Rock Tamers like the part # ERT00108 require 1 inch of clearance on the shank. So since you have 2.5 inches from the pin hole to the opening of the hitch you'd have 1.25 inches left for clearance for the Rock Tamer with the Curt ball mount.

  • Your 2015 Toyota Highlander Limited is rated to tow up to 5,000 lbs so that boat trailer will be fine. For your hitch receiver, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13200.

  • Best Hitch Receiver for a 2013 Chevrolet Express 1500
  • I verified with the manufacturer and they told me there aren't any issues for your AWD 2013 Chevrolet Express Van. Since they're the same, I would suggest the Curt Class V # C15320 to give you the highest towing capacity for your van. With that being said you may also be interested in the T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # 55540 and the Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount # C45900. There is an installation video of the wiring and reviews of the ball mount attached for you. I...

  • What Locking Trailer Hitch Pin Set Will Fit the CURT Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount
  • What you can use is the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set, # AM3492. The shorter lock would replace the hitch pin and the longer one would fit in place of one of the pins that holds the ball. Please note that the capacity of the locks is 10,000 pounds so you would be limited to towing that much weight. I have included a link to a video review of these locks for you.

  • Ball Mount Needed with Longer Shank for Use with a Ford E-350
  • I do have a solution for you but the MaxxTow # MT70197 (and all of our other long shank ball mounts) is shorter than the Curt # C45900 that you currently have. You could use a Gen-Y shank like part # 325-GH-303 for a 5" rise/drop or part # 325-GH-304 for a 7-1/2" rise/drop along with the Gen-Y Tri-Ball Mount # 325-GH-034 which comes with 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" hitch balls and has a 12" long shank. Another option is to use a fixed ball mount with a long shank like the Hidden Hitch...
