Video Transcript for Curt Receiver Hitch Extender Review

Randy: Hey guys. It's Randy here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at Curt hitch extenders. These are designed for use in a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening and they're going to in an 8, a 14, and an 18 inch length. This is going to be a really good way with obstructions on the back of your vehicle whether it's a Jeep like this with a spare tire, a truck with an in-bed camper or even a UTV hitch that's just buried underneath and hard to get to.This is going to get our pinwheel much further back allowing us to clear any obstructions that we might have their accessories. Here is one of the many situations where a hitch extender is going to come in handy.

As you can see we've got a folding style bike rack back here. We just can't get it in far enough before it makes contact with the tire. So by buying that 8, that 14, or that 18 inch extension it's going to give us the room to get our items in place without any interference.Now something that sets this extender apart from some others you can see and extremely durable, solid shank here goes into the backside of your receiver tube. That's going to give you supreme durability. It's going to be very, very rugged, actually quite heavy.

To secure it we're going to slide it in our receiver tube opening. We want to line up the pin hole in the extender with the pin hole in our hitch. Once that's in place use a standard 5/8th diameter pin to slide through there and get it secured with our clip.Now you can also use anti-rattle devices with this but keep in mind, since it is a solid shank we can't put anything inside we we'll have to use an external type. Now the pin's going to be a standard Class 3 style pin, 5/8th of an inch in diameter. So if you don't already have one of those at home be sure to pick it up.

It's not included with the extender. Now overall this going to be a very heavy-duty extender. It feels heavier than just about any of the other ones that we've dealt with.Now this is a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening. That's going to be very compatible with a lot of accessories out here. This would be like what they consider would be like a Class 3 size.

Pin hole here on the side is going to be 5/8th of an inch in diameter and just like a receiver tube opening on a hitch. So any anti-rattle devices and things like that, you won't have any issues getting those in place.Now for ball mount use, I don't know that those are very important. You're going to have a little bit of movement with a ball mount anyway. But putting cargo carriers in here, putting bike racks in here, I would definitely want an anti-rattle there just to keep everything nice and solid. Now here's a pretty good example of what we we're talking about with the movement that we have at our connection between the extender and the hitch.As you can see with this bike rack on here going down the road it'd have quite a bit of play. So we recommend the use of an anti-rattle device here at our connection point so we can limit that and keep everything nice and sturdy. I don't think it's as big of a deal when towing but it's something to keep in mind. Any hitch extender without an anti-rattle device is going to give you that same movement. These extenders also get really good reviews from our customers.It's like Billy said, "I have a Jeep Wrangler with a spare tire on the back. Because of that, I needed this product in order to use a cargo basket so that the basket will clear the spare tire. This product fits the bill and it is very sturdy. Now when using this hitch extender we're going to have the 350 pound tongue weight maximum. That's the most downward force we can put on it. We going to have a 3500 pound gross trailer weight rating so it would be the total weight or our trailer and anything that we load up on it.We also need to check our hitch for it's capacity. Take that down by 50% and use whichever of those numbers are lowest. Also to help ensure that this is going to look good and last for a very long time, Curt's put their black powder coat finish all around everything, giving it a nice clean look.

I ordered this extender last night and I got it this afternoon. That is the fastest service I've ever seen. The price was compatible with other places I looked at. I am very please with the extender. High quality and works great for what I got it for. Thanks etrailer I would and will recomend your company to others. 218704

Easy to order and delivery was on time. The only complaint is that now I have to go buy a pin to couple it to my hitch. I have a bike trailer that needed to extend a little and it came with a pin. This extension should have come with one as well... or at least a suggestion at checkout, like "Maybe you should buy this pin (Item # C21500)." I would have gladly spent an additional $3 on my original order instead of now having to order another item or drive around looking for one in a store 424728

I was a little surprised how much the package weighed when it got here until I opened it. It is a lot better than any other one I have seen. The part that goes into the hitch is solid metal and not just a tube like many are. I do not see this as failing at any time. It will probably outlast me. The entire construction is excellent and have seen nothing that is flawed or looks weak. Would recommend this item to anyone that needs an extension. 458502

I have had this for a year now and it is working better than I could have imagined. Using it in the front hitch of a side by side to move trailers around and also to extend the hitch when having an attachment mounted on the side by side.

I purchased this extension to use with my front end Curt Class 3 receiver hitch. This setup was installed for use of my Warn Wench that is installed in a portable receiver cradle that I use on either the front or rear of my truck. I chose this extension because of the solid shank that made it stronger than most other I shopped. As all extensions reduce the hitch weight rating, this one provided the least amount of reduction. I am very happy with my purchase and it works as advertised. 440872

Thanks for letting me know the package was here. The Curt hitch extender Code #45791 is good heavy quality. But it will not with my 16 foot trailers. I went to four of e-trailer stores first. Not one of the stores had A extender that I could look at. That is why I place the order with you. The male end was not hollow so I could not use the ant-rabble insert. The 8 inch is actual too long needs to be shorter. I look to see if I could drill some new hole. But with the way it is made and where the current hole are. I am not able to do that. Still have my problem to try and fix. Regards David M 233140

I'm happy with this extender. It is solid, heavy, and well made. My bike rack now fits perfectly behind my 2015 Jeep Wrangler's rear spare tire. As you can see in the photo, I am even able to open the back door about 6 inches if needed. One caveat: When driving, expect the bike rack & bikes to sway left and right about double or triple what you're used to. I didn't feel the bikes were going to fall off or anything, but it is a little more than I'd like to see, so I only rated the product a 4 out of 5. (I understand there's a special pin with a spring you can use to reduce the sway, but I'm not sure it is worth the price. Instead, I might just live with it, or try some kind of self-devised support.) 225295

Had to have the hitch extender to fit my bike rack due to the spare tire mounted on the back of my Hummer H3. It really is a nice piece to have since there was no way I could fit my bike rack unless I removed that tire. The only issue I had with it was that I don't think it fit in my trailer hitch perfectly flush. Took a from from KC to Colorado and my bikes started swaying about half way through the trip. Had to stop at a hardware store and get a wrench to tighten the bolt that had come loose to stop the swaying. I now have to do that just about every time I use the hitch extender/bike rack or else it won't feel tight back there. Overall, I like the piece because I have to have it, but I was hoping that it would fit a bit more flush. 390391

  • Hitch Extender for 10,000 lb Travel Trailer Compatibility
    I wish you would have asked this question prior to your purchase of the Curt Extender # C45791, because this extender will not work for your application. It is rated for the 3,500 lb total trailer weight towing capacity and because it is an adapter will also decrease your tongue weight rating of your trailer hitch by 50%. Instead, you may want to consider the Brophy Ball Mount for 2" Hitch # BH20. This ball mount is capable of towing 10,000 lbs and has a measurement of 13-1/4 inches...

    That Malone bike rack, # MPG2124, really does have sort of a backwards lean doesn't it. I looked through the literature for the bike rack and there is nothing stating that you can't use an extension and since that is the only way the rack will clear the back of your 2005 Hyundai Tucson you would have to use an extension. Like you said, the use of an extension reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. For hitch # 13526 the tongue weight capacity is normally...

  • Effect on Hitch Tongue Weight Capacity from Use of Hitch Extension
    You are correct that increasing the distance between the hitch receiver and the actual load on it will also increase the leverage applied to the hitch. And this DOES indeed reduce the hitch's rated capacity. Hitch extensions, even fairly short ones like the 8-inch Curt # C45791, will cost you HALF of the hitch's rated tongue weight capacity. The physics of using adapters is more complicated than just the increased distance. Use of an adapter also allows for more motion of the suspended...

  • Hitch Extension Recommendation for a Bike Rack on a Jeep Wrangler
    We have the Curt Hitch Extender part # C45791 which is 8 inches long and would give you enough clearance for the rack to fit with the spare. You should note that when you use a hitch extender like this you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. Since extenders tend to add movement in the hitch you will most likely also want a locking anti-rattle device part # 63232 to help take out the movement in the hitch as well lock it to the vehicle.

  • Which 8 inch Hitch Extender has Highest Tongue Weight Capacity
    The three brands you mentioned all do make 8 inch hitch extensions. The Curt is the winner in terms of capacity though as it has a 350 lb tongue weight rating. That part number is # C45791. You should note that the use of these cuts the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent.

At the 34 inch length it is rated for 4,500 pounds gross trailer weight or 6,000 pounds when using weight distribution.

  • Recommendation For Hitch Extender To Carry Thule Apex Bike Rack With 2018 Jeep Rubicon JL
    Before I can recommend a hitch extension, I need to find out the actual extension needed. You will need to measure from the hitch pin hole to the rear edge of your spare tire to see how much length is needed for clearance of your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited. You will then need to determine the clearance needed by your bike rack by measuring the distance from center of hitch pin hole to the closest part of the bike rack. The difference is the extension size that you need (see...

  • Can Hitch Extender Be Used with Small Trailer Towing Lawn Equipment
    The deal with hitch extenders is that they cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent due to the added length and leverage. If your tow vehicle has twice the towing capacity as what your trailer will weigh this adapter part # C45791 would work well. This adapter by itself has a capacity of 3,500 lbs so the adapter would easily work on a 2,500-3,000 lb trailer.

  • Can Hitch Extender be Used with Thule Bike Rack
    A trailer hitch extender, such as the Curt # C45791 for 8 inches of extension, can be used with your Thule swinging bike rack like the Apex Swing # TH9027XT. You just need to keep in mind that using a hitch adapter will reduce the trailer hitch capacity on your truck by 50 percent. For example if your hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds this will be reduced to 175 pounds when using the adapter. You just need to be sure that the combined tongue weight of the carrier itself...

But the use of a hitch extender reduces the tongue weight capacity of a trailer hitch by 50 percent. As long as the reduced tongue weight capacity is greater than the 200 pound tongue weight of your camper then it will work. Another option is to use a longer ball mount such as # 80232.

  • Effect on Hitch Tongue Weight Rating from Use of Hitch Adapter with Motorcycle Carrier
    You are on the right track in recognizing that use of a hitch extension or adapter changes the forces on the hitch. This in turn changes the hitch's tongue weight (TW) capacity. In the same way that using a cheater bar on the end of a tire iron can give you more leverage to loosen a stubborn lug nut, using a hitch extension like # C45791 or an adapter like # D-192 will let the chosen carrier exert more force on the hitch tube. This is why use of any such item reduces the hitch capacity...

    A hitch extender like Curt # C45791 which fits 2-inch hitches will give you the 8-inch of additional trailer-to-truck clearance you want but at the heavy cost of taking away half of your hitch's towing capacity. All hitch adapters/extenders have this unfortunate side-effect. This occurs due to the increased leverage on the hitch tube from the extension. A better solution is to use an extra-extra-long ball mount and no adapter. You can see such items on the linked page.
