Video Transcript for Curt Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Adjustable 2-Ball Mount for two and a half inch hitches. It has a six inch drop and five and a quarter inch rise. Rated at twenty thousand pounds. Part number C45902. This heavy duty steel ball mount is adjustable and lets you tow with a two inch or two and five sixteenths hitch ball. With the two inch ball, it offers a ten thousand pound towing capacity, and with two and five sixteenths ball, you get a twenty thousand pound capacity.

Either way, it offers a two thousand pound tongue weight. It's adjustable in one inch increments and can easily be adjusted by removing the two pins, selecting your ball size and ball height and re-inserting the pins. The channel style mount allows you to attach other Curt accessories such as another ball mount or a pencil hook, and you can pick that up with part number C45920. Here at the back, it features an anti-rattle set screw that reduces a lot of the play and rattle within our hitch ball. Once we got our ball height set, we can tighten up that set screw, then we'll give it another shake.

I'm just using the included tool to do so. As you can see, once we got it tight, that rattle is gone. It features two hitch pin holes, you just use whatever works best for the application. The closest one to the center of the hitch ball is ten and three eighths. The furthest one to the center of the hitch ball is eleven and three eighths. It's made out of heavy duty steel construction with a black powder coat finish so it's going to resist rust and corrosion.

The ball and pins features a zinc-plating to resist corrosion. Now it's very easy to install. You can install in either rise or drop position, depending on your trailer height. We'll insert our shank, line up our pin holes, then we can take the included pin and clip, put that through and we've got it. If you'd like to further secure your ball mount, you can pick up a locking hitch pin.

DeadBolt makes one for the two and a half inch receiver and that's part number RH5-XL. That's going to complete our look at the Curt Adjustable 2-Ball Mount for two and a half inch hitches. It has a six inch drop and five and a quarter inch rise, rated at twenty thousand pounds. Part number C45902. .

this is my second time to order from Etrailer i will say it is a very professional operation i will use them again thanks 720274

- C45902

This hitch is to be used on my 2017 F-350 Super Duty SRW Super Cab which has a conventional tow limit because of the single rear wheels and short 148" wheelbase of 15,000lbs. The Curt 20,000lb rating exceeds the truck's rating so it will never be overtaxed. It is a nicely finished quality product with only one niggle. There are 3 hole positions for the anti-rattle bolt. the anti-rattle bolt is too short to reach the arched portion of the sliding ball assembly so if you move the ball assembly to some positions the anti-rattle feature would not work. I will find a 1" longer bolt to remedy this situation but for the price, Curt should have supplied a longer bolt. 420534

- C45902

Excellent product. Durable and heavy duty. the only "issue" I'd say I have is the quality of the finish and the rating sticker. trivial but the finish has started to either fade all around the mount and or rust around where the mount is inserted into the receiver. But I wouldn't trade it for anything when comparing adjustable dual ball mounts. 697971

First of all, ETRAILER is a great company in my opinion. Their selection, prices and customer service are all great. This hitch is stout! I'm the type that I'd rather have more capability than what I may actually use. For what I will use this for, I'm 100% sure it will be way more than I'll ever need but I'm also confident that I would not have any issues using it regularly at it's maximum capability. The construction of it is top notch and I'd be willing to bet it can do more than what it's rated for. I will definitely be ordering the 20K Pintle that works with this as well as a Curt 5th Wheel and Gooseneck. Thank you ETRAILER and thank you CURT for amazing service and and amazing product. 318960

The hitch arrived quickly and as expected. Normally a hitch that weighs as much as this one (37.5lbs shipped) is hard to order online due to the weight of the item but etrailer really made it easy. The interaction with the folks from etrailer was perfect. They were detailed in their email and made every effort to make this a personal experience. 269330

The price was better than i could find anywhere else. Very easy to see product, numerous pictures, wished other companies would follow etrailer.com professional attitude. Received product within 5-days. Professionally package. All is great with etrailer will do a lot more business with them. 270117

Just as pleased with it as I was when I first got it.
Leland C - 07/10/2017

Very strong and durable hitch. Elevation and dropping is very convenient. 2 big issues with his hitch. 1) does not have an option to buy a 1 7/8 ball. 2) even with a pin lock on the hitch, the balls can still be stolen with its design. If the balls are stolen they can not be easily replaced or cheaply. Overall, does the job, but once it is stolen, I’ll be buying something better theft protection. 490920

As with any ball mount, it is recommended to remove it from the vehicle when it is not being used. This will protect it against theft and corrosion. Some States actually mandate that a ball mount be removed when not towing.If removing the ball mount is not feasible, a hitch lock # RH5-XL
Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches
can be used in place of one of the pins that hold the ball in place.
-- Mike L - 03/31/2018

Hitch hasn’t been stolen. Easy hook up. Pulls 12k with ease. Rust build up is a little disappointing, but still have plenty of life in it. Hitch has saved my bumper from damage several times.

Exactly what I needed. Purchased a new 24 ft cargo trailer and I tow with a 2016 F-350 dually. This hitch gives me variability so I can make adjustments based on weight in the trailer and air bags on the truck. Great product and great service. Arrived exactly when they said it would. Thank you, etrailer. 496279

Received my Curt Adjustable 2-Ball Mount in just a few short days after my online purchase... It was very well packaged, undamaged and very easy to assemble. Very adjustable, for my 2017 Ram Cummins 2500 CCSB truck. I have already towed a 13,000+ lb flatbed with a skidsteer and extra drilling attachments. The adjustable hitch let me position the trailer PERFECT for a heavy tow. This weekend, I brought home a 30ft travel trailer, and I was able to flip the ball, from the 2" to the 2 5/16" ball in only a couple of minutes. This is a very heavy duty hitch and I look forward to many miles of smiles as I enjoy traveling across America, with the RIGHT hitch for my rig. THANK YOU etrailer.com This was my second purchase with them, first was a Class V+ XD receiver for my deuce and a half, fit perfect... and recently a set of 5 tires for my travel trailer in a hard to find D load rated 14 inch size. I would very highly recommend etrailer for future purchases. 459706

It was shipped within minutes of my order and arrived within 48 hours. Seems simple to use and is very sturdy. I will highly recommend this place to my friends 501806

The product was well described on the web site. The truck matching worked great and was easy to use. This hitch was very easy to order and the price was good. The delivery date was correct, it was easy to follow with the information provided. The hitch was as advertised, easy to install and easy to use. Great Job! 666461

- C45902

The product is everything they said it was and more, the adjustment capabilities are great along with the ability to extend the receiver. I plan to pull a 26 foot car trailer at about 12,000 pounds loaded. The service and concern as always was excellent. I highly recommend this product and certainly etrailer. 546076

Excellent product and best price. Great descriptions and video support. Quick free shipping! What can best that? 749472

- C45902

This is a heavy duty hitch set up. I have only used it a few times but I know what ever I hook up to. it will get the job done. I have towed a full size suv and a large heavy duty trailer with no problems. This hitch should give a life time of service and then some. If your looking for a heavy duty hitch set up. This is the one you want. Only thing negative is it needs to be able to accommodate a1 7/8” ball. Other than that it’s perfect. Thanks etrailer for having outstanding products like this to offer your customers. 737571

Easy to adjust and strongly built 735004

Great solid and heavy duty hitch. It works perfect for switching between the three trailers i have. 691104

Great sturdy product, easy to put together and change heights for hitch ball, easy to change ball sizes. Prompt delivery of ball hitch and heat service from etrailer. 657892

Very solidly built product and quite heavy, but in this case I’d say heavy speaks to the high quality. 649961

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Receiver and 15,000 lb Trailer
    Based on your question, I assume you have the 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver. There are many options available to assist with your desired towing weight, but there is one that I recommend above the others for ease of use and function at that capacity. I recommend the Curt Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # C45902. This ball mount accommodates up to a 5-1/4 inch rise or up to a 6 inch drop. It adjusts in 1 inch increments and has both a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball. To secure your investment,...

Our selection is comprised of the Hayes Sway Master # HA81775, Lippert Sway Command # LC380605, and the Tuson Electronic Sway Control System # 335TSC-1000.

  • How To Add a Pintle Hook to the Curt Adjustable 2-Ball Mount
    In order to add a pintle hook to the Curt Adjustable 2-Ball Mount part # C45902 that you have now all you will need to obtain is the Curt Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Hitch Ball part # C45922. I would also recommend you use the Curt Lock Set for Adjustable Channel-Style Mounts part # C23556 on this setup as it will be a bit more valuable than the standard hitch ball. The Curt Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Hitch Ball part # C45922 is not offered without the hitch ball attached.

    Since you use all three common ball sizes regularly I recommend an adjustable ball mount that comes with all three since there isn't a 1-7/8 and 2 inch combo for # C45902. There are several options for a 2-1/2 inch hitch such as # BWTS20049B. I have included a link to all of the options with 3 balls that fit 2-1/2 inch hitches.

  • Locking Pins for Curt Adjustable Ball Mount # C45902
    For Curt adjustable ball mount # C45902 the locking pin set is # C23556. The pins don't have an official capacity but technically 5/8 inch diameter solid steel is going to have a capacity much higher than the hitch or vehicle. The hitch pin has a useable span of 3-1/4 inches which should be long enough for the outer width of your 2-1/2 inch hitch but it never hurts to measure to be sure.

  • Availability of Locking Pin For Curt # C45902 Adjustable Ball Mount

  • Adjustable Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Hitches made in the USA
    Curt trailer hitches are manufactured in the USA but not the supplemental parts like ball mount # C45902. For one that is made in the USA and is similar I recommend # BWTS20037B. But it maxes out at 14.5K with the 2-5/16 inch ball. The Curt model # C45902 is the only option we have in an adjustable ball mount for 2-1/2 inch hitches that can reach 20K. For a few dollars more you can get the tri-ball model # BWTS20048B. I have linked a video of it for you.

  • Pintle Hitch Ball Mount Rated for Over 20,000 Pounds for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    There isn't a pintle adapter for ball mount # C45902 rated for 21,000 pounds but I may have a solution for you. What you could do is use ball mount plate # 337PM25812 with Convert-A-Ball pintle hook combo # PH1. When used as a pintle hitch the capacity will be 20,000 pounds. Or for a pintle/ball combo we have # C48012 rated for 20,000 pounds but it is not adjustable. I know that falls just under the 21,000 pounds you are looking for but to go above that you would need a 3 inch hitch.

    There are 3 places of possible movement for Curt adjustable ball mount # C45902: the 2 pins that hold the ball to the shank and between the shank and the hitch itself. If you have that screw at the ball part nice and tight then you are probably getting movement at the hitch receiver. To keep the screw from coming loose a lock washer could be used. You can reduce or even eliminate movement at the hitch using an anti-rattle device such as # RSCP. With adjustable ball mounts like this...

This ball mount is made from durable heavy-duty steel and has an anti-rattle design to help reduce towing noise.
