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

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

I like it and use it so much I ordered another one so I wouldn’t have to move it between my two trucks

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.

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.

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

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

It was just what I was looking for to pull my fourteen thousand pound trailer. Now I can go from one trailer to another no problem. The price was the best I could find and shipping was lightning fast! 226420

Just what I needed in a drop hitch. Very stout. Love the ability to change by 1 inch at a time. 519048

This has made life so much easier for switching around trailers and being able to load level everything. Should have bought one much sooner.

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

Very good hitch. Very heavy duty! I would give it 5 stars except the rubber plug that sits behind the gold ball one day was missing. I'm not sure how it fell out. But a great hitch! 746302

Solid is the best word to describe this drop hitch. Works like a charm on my 2005 f250. Allows me to get whatever height I need weather it’s jet skis, or a dump trailer. And it’s got a massive 14k lb rating. LOVE IT. 736842

by:

Very well built, solid and simple hitch! I pull 6K-9K lbs weekly with this hitch, and have had zero issues.I have used a B and W tow and stow for several years prior to this purchase, as far as quality and price, you can not beat this hitch. 736558

This ball hitch is excellent for the several trailers I use. It is easy to adjust up or down and greatly helped level out my trailer(s) to ride better. 728622

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

The hitch worked great I bought this hitch plus a Curt Lunette ring C48660 for my pull truck. Used the hitch setup for the first time last night and worked flawless, I would definitely recommend this setup to my friends the price was great and the hitch is well built.Thanks etrailer 672872

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
