Video Transcript for Curt Pintle Hitch - Pintle Hook - Ball Combo - C45908 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Curt Pintle hitch combo with 2-5/16 inch valve. This is going to work for 2-1/2 inch hitches. This is gonna be a really heavy duty combo to let you hook up heavy duty trailers with various heights. It's going to allow you to use that lunette ring coupler at the front, or standard hitch balls. To attach it, you just remove the safety pin and clip, open up that top hook, and drop your coupler over that, whether that is the lunette ring or the standard ball.Then you're gonna close this down and re-secure your pin and clip. Now, again, this does allow you to adjust the height on this.

To do that, of course, you just pull the clips and the pins, and that'll allow you to slide that pintle hook up or down on the shank to whatever height you need it. There is a anti-rattle device on the back of the shank, which I'll show you in just a second here. That's gonna take up the gap between our pintle hook or ball so that we don't have as much play between those. It's just gonna be a screw on the back. So you see up inside there; there's gonna be three holes.

This is the topmost; then we have one in the middle and one at the bottom. So, you just tighten that down, and, again, that's going to press against our ball and pintle hook combo, and make that much more secure, reducing any rattle or play inside there. So, you have a more secure and noise-free ride.They do include the tools to tighten down that anti-rattle bolt. Now, the chrome plating on the ball and the black powder coat finish on the shank and platform are going to do a great job of resisting rust and corrosion, so it's gonna be looking really nice for a long time. This has kind of a nice, hammered finish on the ball mount itself, sort of a textured look to it.

It's really nice and rugged. Again, it does have that safety pin already attached on the pintle latch, and it also has a hitch pin and clip that comes with it to attach it into your hitch. You can purchase a hitch lock separately. We've got a lot of options here at Just make sure that you get one rated for whatever you're hauling.Now, as far as the specks on this, again, this is gonna work for 2-1/2 inch by 2-1/2 inch hitches.

As you can see there, it's got that beefier shank on it. The gross towing weight for this is gonna max out at 20,000 lbs. Ball size, again, is 2-5/16 inches. The ball hole diameter is 1-1/4 inches. The lunette ring inside eye diameter is between 2-1/2 or 3 inches; it will work with those two. The maximum drop you can achieve with this 6 inches, excuse me, and the maximum rise, if you we're to flip this over into the rise position, is going to be 4-1/4. The adjustment increment between those is going to be 1 inch. So, in between all of those height adjustment holes, again, it'll be 1 inch there.So, that's gonna do it for our look at the Curt Pintle hitch ball combo with a 2-5/16 inch ball.

Love the hitch, but there is one hole setting that the allen set screw does not touch the receiver ball and does not allow the allen to take any slop out of the pins slide. 629798

  • Tongue Weight Capacity for Curt Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball # C45908

  • Can Different Sized Hitch Balls be Used with Curt Pintle Hook # C45908
  • Yes, the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball that comes included with the Curt Pintle Hook # C45908 can be swapped out with a different sized ball that features a compatible shank. For a 2 inch hitch ball to use with this assembly the Curt # C48820 will work perfectly. We also have the 1-7/8 inch # C48810 if you think you would ever have a need for a smaller hitch ball. I have attached a short video demonstration on the Pintle Hook that you can also take a look at.

  • Length From Hitch Pin Holes to Center of Ball on Curt Pintle Hook
  • I went out to our warehouse to measure the Curt Pintle Hook # C45908 to get the measurements you asked for. I put it together and used digital calipers to ensure this measurement was as accurate as possible and found that it measured approximately 13.7" from the center of the furthest hitch pin hole to the middle of the ball and 12.7" from the center of the closest hitch pin hole to the center of the ball.

  • Is an Adapter Needed to Use the Curt Pintle Hook # C45908 with 3 Receiver on a 2017 Ford F-250
  • Since your 2017 Ford F-250 has a 3" trailer hitch receiver you will need an adapter to use the Curt Pintle Hook and 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C45908 because it has a shank made to fit a 2-1/2" hitch receiver. For your application I recommend the B&W Reducer Sleeve # BWRHXA2183 as it has a 5/8" diameter hole for the hitch pin which matches what comes with the Curt pintle hook. This will reduce the 3" inner dimensions of your receiver to the 2-1/2" that you need.The hitch pin and clip that...
