    Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts D-26 Review

    Today we'll be reviewing part number D-26. This is the CURT Ball Mount with the extra long shank. This is ball mount is designed to work with the 2" x 2" receiver-style hitch. You can see here on the back side that we have a nice hollow shank. This is rated for up to 7,500 pounds of gross trailer weight and 750 pounds of maximum tongue weight. When choosing the hitch ball, you want to make sure that the shank of that hitch ball does not exceed the ball hole diameter, which for this mount is going to measure right at 1". Has a nice finish on it so it is going to be protected from rust and corrosion.

    Couple measurements to go over real quick. The distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of our ball hole is going to measure about 12 5/8" long. That's the distance that we have between the two. The distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to the closest point of the edge here of the ball platform is going to measure about 8 1/2". Distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the shank is going to measure about 2 1/2".

    The overall length of this mount is going to measure right at 17". It's a really simple installation. You can just take the ball mount and slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up your pinholes, and then insert a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. These items are sold separately and you can refer to the ball mount's product page under related items to view those products, or go to our website and type in part number PC3 and it will refer you to the standard 5/8" pin that comes with the clip. With the ball mount in this position, it's going to give us a drop of right at 2". That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the ball platform. We can also use this ball mount in the rise position simply by flipping it over.

    In the rise position it's going to give us a rise of 3/4". Here up front our drawbar thickness is going to measure about 7/8" and it's going to measure about 2 1/2" in width. That's going to complete today's review of part number D-26. This is the CURT Ball Mount with an extra long shank. .

    Ball Mount 3/4" Rise or 2" Drop, Extra Long - D-26

    The ball mount does what it is designed to do. It extends out enough to clear my oversized spare tire creating room to connect my pop up trailer to my Jeep with ample distance between the coupler and my spare tire. The 3/4" rise lifts up, and levels out my trailer, which until now, lacked sufficient ground clearance, and makes it safer to tow. This inexpensive purchase saved me a few hundred dollars by not having to purchase a new bumper and tire mount to relocate my spare tire. It's a quality product, and I would recommend it to anyone experiencing similar issues. 87101

    If you did a customer service search on the internet, the search should immediately direct you to this company. Customer Service and of course quality of product is what they are about. This will be the company I go to first for anything towing related or anything vehicle related, even if it isn't listed on their site I will ask them first prior to buying it else where. Excellent service is all that I can think to say. 72907

    Hello Patrick and thanks for the follow up on that product. It has worked out for me just fine, no issues at all. I have also purchased your towing wiring kits for 7 PIN connectors for my 2000 and 2002 Toyota Tundra and it too has been flawless, although I am just getting ready to use it on my 2002 but do not anticipate any issues with it. Again, I appreciate your follow up and customer service. Top notch company and products and the first on the list to contact when I need something in the future for my towing related needs.

    Recently bought a Kubota RTV x900. The receiver is located under the bed. With the extra long ball hitch drawbar I can easily get to the drawbar and use a clevis to hitch my 5ft. wide mower or attach a ball and use the trailer. The pictures will illustrate the length of the drawbar which makes access very easy. The product is heavy duty and well made. Ordered this product on Thursday morning and it was delivered the next day, Friday afternoon. Customer service was helpful, will use etrailer again. Thanks 228018

    Bruce L.The Curt ball mounts have worked like a charm. The extra long mounts allows my wife to turn sharp corners without jack knifing the trailer.

    Bought a new truck and never thought my ball mount off old truck would be an issue. Sure enough, let my tailgate down and it hit the top of my wind jack to my trailer. Went to u-haul,tractor supply and walmart. None had the solution to my problem. Started a Web search and came across etrailer. Found exactly what I needed and at a great price! Not to mention super fast shipping. I ordered on a Monday evening and received it on Thursday. That was standard shipping too. Thanks etrailer. Will order from you for any of my trailer needs. Item d-26. 3/4 rise or 2"drop. Extra long. I use the 2" drop for my truck and trailer. 351033

    I had not heard of etrailer before ordering, but any hesitancy I had originally was dissolved from the presentation of the product through video, the ease of ordering, the follow-up through email and the flow of information regarding where my order was in the shipping process. The product I ordered, a D-26 ball mount, arrived on schedule and was of the quality presented in the advertising. I haul a kayak on a small trailer behind my truck and the bow of the kayak came too close to my tailgate; this extended ball mount was the perfect solution. Etrailer is an impressive company to work with! 420990

    The extra long ball mount paired with the bike rack purchased previously from etrailer match perfectly. We will now be able to position our bikes between our van and pop up trailer. Delivery was unbelievably fast ( both items were shipped the next day). Needed 3" beyond the bumper to mount the bike rack and none of the local stores had an extended ball mount. I plan on mentioning etrailer at every opportunity as we bike in S Florida for the next 4 months. I may even cheer for Missouri as long as they aren't playing a team from Michigan. :-) 234199

    BEEN PULLING WITH THE HITCH FOR ABOUT A YEAR NOW. NO PROBLEMS AT ALL USE ON A GOOD SIZE LOAD AND IT IS JUST WHAT I NEEDED TO KEEP THE TAILGATE OF MY TRUCK FROM HITTING THE CRANK ON THE TRAILER. THE EXTENDED TUBE IS THE ONE I NEEDED. TAKE MY WORD ON IT. THE PRICE WAS RIGHT GREAT CONTACT INFO. AND I GOT IT ON TIME. I FEEL THAT IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FOR YOUR TRUCK AND TRAILER YOU NEED TO GET WITH etrailer.com. GIVE THEM A CALL AND DO NOT MESS WITH THE RUN AROUND. 343445

    The product was exactly what I needed. I have a GMC Acadia and the hitch is under the bumper by aprox 4". With a standard length ball mount I was not able to raise my lift gate on vehicle without hitting the trailer. The extra long ball mount did the trick. The service from eTrailer was excellent. The product shipped the same day I ordered it and I was able to track it with the provided shipping info. Thanks Juanita 204329

    I ordered this item just before midnight on a Saturday, it shows up Wednesday morning at 9am. Super fast shipping, reasonable prices, virtually any kind of towing anything that you could ever need, & the customer service was great. Computers are not my thing at all, but their website made my search and eventual purchase an absolute breeze. I highly recommend them, and I will most definitely shop here again!! 240834

    The extra long ball mount was exactly what I needed for my Jeep. The added length clears my spare tire and gives me the extra turning radius I need for backing my camper into tight spots! 147259



    - D-26

    by: James04/20/2017


    I have a Mercedes ML. The hitch is recessed under the bumper so the normal length receiver has the ball real close to the bumper. This product gives me the extra room needed to make sure the trailer coupler doesn't hit my bumper if I turn sharp. I will say the extra length does cause the weight distribution to be higher so the back of the SUV sags just a little more, but not bad. 369905



    - D-26

    by: Lowell D08/02/2016


    This product was perfect for solving a mismatch I had between my new trailer and an older utility vehicle. I can now use the crank on the trailer to raise and lower the hitch. Before I installed the longer tow bar I bought from you, the crank ran into the back end of the utility vehicle and could not turn all the way around. Bravo to you for the perfect solution. 278549

    Good quality product that gets hitch ball/trailer coupler a few inches further away from rear bumper of new NISSAN ROGUE. 238644



    - D-26

    by: Long Drawbar Hitch11/05/2016


    Better than shorter one because keeps corners of trailer farther from truck bumper so less likely to dent your truck. However remember that the longer hitch gives leverage to the trailer so use it with a stout truck not a smaller vehichle. Only reason not 5 stars is it was a PITA to get the glue from the stickers off. 314126



    - D-26

    by: Josh M.07/07/2017


    This was definitely the length I wanted, but it fit much more loosely in the receiver than my shorter Curt ball mount. I expected the same fit, as they are basically the same ball mount, with the new one being a bit longer. I ordered a hitch tightener to shore up this problem. Hopefully, that will solve the issue. 402692

    by: James L04/24/2015


    Well, the order went well, and delivery was spot on. Problem was the ball would not fit into the hitch. The hole circumference was too small. I would suggest when you guys see an order like this coming through, you would reach out to the customer to ensure they are ordering parts that would fit together. 187797

    This product is exactly what I needed to make trailering my Kayak easier. My Jeep Liberty has a spare tire that has interfered with the hitching and unhitching of the trailer. The extension works perfectly. The Item was at my door in three days and on my Jeep minutes later. Great purchasing experience. 9812

    This extra-long ball mount is just what it says. They are hard to find, but I needed one this long to work with my particular hitch set-up.

    Definitely needed an extended hitch for my vehicle due to the offset of the hitch receiver on my vehicle and the weight of the boat that I trailer. Product was a great solution and gave me peace of mind based on the rating and quality. 378106

    Good transaction. FAST shipping. It's exactly what I ordered/needed and works great. I now have enough clearance from the bumper on a 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis. I also like the 3/4" rise instead of 2", preventing possible drag. 199178

    by: Jared J.06/05/2016


    Not much to say about this guy - It's everything that I expected. Bought to use with a Swagman bike rack that fit over the square portion of the ball mount because a regular mount was not long enough to accommodate the rack. 257404

    • A hitch extender will reduce the weight capacity of your hitch. Instead, I suggest using a long ball mount like # D-26. This ball mount is 12-5/8 inches from the hitch pin hole to the ball hole. If you need longer than that let me know the distance you need and I'll find one that will work. Also, if you need a rise or drop in the ball mount. This particular ball mount uses a hitch ball with a 1 inch shank like # 40038 for a 2 inch ball or # 19260 for a 1-7/8 inch ball.

    • Swagman Towing Bike Rack S64600 Clearance
    • The base of this rack measures 3-1/8 inches long. If you only have 2 inches clearance then this rack will not mount on to your ball mount with sufficient clearance to insert the hitch pin. You could purchase an extended ball mount (see links below) or you could buy a hitch mounted bike rack and use our multi purpose ball mount to carry your bikes and allow towing of a trailer at the same time. Remember, do not exceed the tongue weight of your hitch or your towing vehicle (whichever is...

    • Trailer Hitch, Ball Mount, Ball, and Wiring Recommendation for a 2006 Ford E-150 with Step Bumper

    • How to Extend Hitch Connection Between Trailer and Truck to Allow Tailgate to be Fully Lowered
    • I have a solution for you, but the Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 7-3/4" Extension, # RM-071-1075, is designed to be used in flat towing applications. When flat towing a vehicle behind an motorhome there is less tongue weight on the hitch than when you are towing a trailer. That's why the Roadmaster hitch extender has a low tongue weight rating and should not be used in trailer applications. I recommend using a ball mount with a longer shank, like...

    • Recommended Extension For Towing A 7500 lb Trailer
    • The Blue Ox hitch extender # BX88265 is not rated for towing, however we do have extenders that are rated for towing. The issue is we don't have any with the exception of the SuperTruss # TLE1524 that will handle a 7500 lb capacity. That extension requires a special hitch receiver. What you can use is the Curt Ball Mount 3/4" Rise or 2" Drop, Extra Long # D-26. This ball mount has a 7500 lb capacity and is 12-5/8 inches from center of pin hole to center of hitch ball hole.

    • Differences Between Curt Ball Mounts # C45250 and # D-26
    • The two ball mounts from Curt # C45250 and # D-26 also known as 45260 are very similar but there is a small difference along with the different style you noticed. The # D-26 has a center of hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole length of 12-5/8 inches while the # C45250 has 12-1/4 inches. That 3/8 distance might allow for better bumper clearance for a particular vehicle. Both are Class III ball mounts, both will fit 2 inches hitches, they both have the same weight capacity...

    • Super Extra Long Ball Mount to Clear the Spare Tire on a Jeep Liberty
    • On the CURT Ball Mount, # D-26, it measures 12-5/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It will clear the spare tire on your Jeep Liberty, but it still may be tight. For a super extra long ball mount, go with # 80232. It measures 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. That will give you enough clearance and room to spare. I have included a link to a video review for you.

    • Choosing the Correct Trailer Ball Mount for a 2004 Jeep Liberty

If that distance is less than 12-5/8 inches, and your Liberty has a 2 inch receiver, then the Curt Ball Mount, # D-26, will work.

    • How to Determine Which Ball Mount Will Have Enough Rise for Curt Hitch on a 2005 Chrysler 300c
    • The best way to determine which ball mount is right for your 2005 Chrysler 300c and your trailer is to take a few simple measurements. Since you don't have the hitch we can see by the video of the Curt # 13465, I've attached, that the hitch receiver is going to be 10-1/4 inches from the ground. You will then want to take a similar measurement from the bottom of the coupler to the ground. Then compute the difference. If the hitch height is greater than the trailer height, then •hitch...

    • 2 Inch Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2011 Toyota 4Runner Towing a 19 ft Boat Trailer
    • When measuring for the correct drop or rise in a ball mount, you will actually want to measure from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler. Most trailer couplers are only about 2 inches tall at the ball socket, so the measurement you have is likely around 17-3/4 inches. For this, you will want a ball mount with a 2 inch drop like the Draw-Tite Ball Mount, # 2923. I have attached a video review of this ball mount on a 2012 Toyota 4Runner and a help article that explains how...

    • Compatibility of Swagman Original # S64600 Towing Bike Rack with Curt # D-26 Ballmount
    • The Curt 45260 ( # D-26 ) ballmount will work just fine with the Swagman # S64600 towing bike rack. It has the same shank length as the recommended # D-28, and it does NOT have the gusset (angled metal piece you referred to), so there will be no worries about it interfering. You'll need to make sure that the tongue weight of the trailer, the 20 lb weight of the rack and the weight of the bikes carried on the rack don't exceed the tongue weight capacity of the hitch you're using.

    • Transmission Cooler for 2011 Chevy Traverse
    • I would start by determining the towing capacity of the vehicle. I did some research, and saw a range of 2000-5200 lbs depending on how the vehicle was equipped. If you phone your Chevy dealer, they should be able to tell you the towing capacity of your Traverse based on its VIN. If you find that the fully loaded and ready to tow weight of the boat and trailer does not exceed the towing capacity of the vehicle, the only other thing I would consider essential would be an aftermarket transmission...
