Video Transcript for Curt Balls C40004 Review

Today, were going to take a look at the Curt Two Inch Hitch Ball, part number C40004. This chrome ball is two inches in diameter. It has a shank diameter of one inch, a shank length of 2-1/8 inches. It is intended for a ball mount with a draw bar thickness of half an inch to one inch, and has a weight capacity of 6,000 pounds. It comes with everything you see here, including the nut and washer. Were going to show you how you would install this using one of our ball mounts and using our trailer hitch demonstrator.

You would just slide the shank into the ball hole of the ball mount. Also you can see, we have the wrench flats here, to make it easier to tighten. You would take your washer, slide that on first and take your nut, and slide that on, finger-tighten it. Then once youre done with that, you could use the wrench flats here to hold that while using another wrench to tighten that fully, and then youre ready to tow your trailer. That should about do it for our Curt Two Inch Hitch Ball, part number C40004.

For the same sized ball with a 3/4 inch diameter shank thats 2-1/8 inches in length, youd want to use # A-82.

Fit and finish is as expected. It's new and I can't comment on how the chrome finish will hold up . Threads are clean and the nut goes on smoothly. Chrome lock washer compressed nicely with no chrome flaking. 257721

Ask the Experts about this Curt Hitch Ball
Do you have a question about this Hitch Ball?


  • Are Safety Chains Required When Towing a Trailer or is the Hitch Ball and Trailer Coupler Enough
  • When towing a trailer, you will always need safety chains or cables as required by law. This is so if the trailer coupler pops off the ball on your step bumper for some reason, it is still connected to the tow vehicle via the safety chains or cables until you can stop and remedy the problem. I recommend getting a couple of 27 inch Long Safety Chains with 11/16 inch Hook, # 2118-605-04. With these chains installed, you will not have to worry about losing your trailer or getting a ticket!

  • Ball Mount with a 12 Inch Drop for a Motor Home Towing a Tow Dolly
  • Drop is measured from the top of the receiver opening to the top of the other receiver opening in the case of a high-low adapter like # RM-048-6 which actually has a 6 inch drop. However, these adapters cannot be used with a tow dolly per the manufacturer specifications. What you can do is use a ball mount with 12 inches of drop, # AMSC12. For a ball mount drop is measured from the top of the receiver opening down to the ball platform like in the FAQ I have included. With this ball...

  • Choosing Correct Ball Mount for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer Towed by 2016 Lexus RX 450h
  • The linked article on choosing a ball mount explains the measurement process we use, and you're correct that Yakima references the top of the coupler while we use the bottom. You'll measure from the ground up to the top of the level trailer's coupler, and from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. The difference between these is the amount of rise you need, about 3- inches. You can use fixed ball mount # 4285 for 3-inches of rise along with 2-inch ball # A-90. If you like...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation Made by Reese with 6 inches Of Drop
  • The Curt ball mount, part # C45070, would be the closest thing we offer to what you described. This ball mount is made by the same company as Reese so it is basically a Reese ball mount for all intents and purposes. The ball mount can do 6 inches of drop which is as close as we have to the drop you mentioned. Since typically the rear of a vehicle will sag slightly it's best to go slightly higher when picking out a ball mount than needed if the exact dimension isn't available. I attached...

  • Hitch Ball Size Needed for 6,000 Pound Custom Flat Bed Trailer
  • To determine what size hitch ball you will need to pull your custom flat bed trailer, you will just need to look at the coupler on the trailer. Typically, the size hitch ball needed will be stamped into the coupler's metal housing or listed on a safety sticker. Once you find the hitch ball size you need, you will also need to check the ball shank diameter to ensure that it will fit the ball hole on your ball mount. Lastly, you will just choose a hitch ball that has at least a 6,000 pound...

  • Ball Mount With 5 Inches of Rise for Trailer Hitch on 2019 Chevy Equinox
  • Since the Class III Draw-Tite hitch # 76419 on your 2019 Chevy Equinox measures 11 inches to the top of the receiver and the bottom of your utility trailer's coupler is 16 inches you will need a ball mount that gives you 5 inches of rise. For that you can use the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 40346, which will fit your 2 inch receiver and has plenty of capacity at 6,000 lbs. You will also need Pin and Clip # PC3 or Trailer Hitch Lock # 7683 to secure the ball mount to your hitch as well as...

  • Recommended 6 Inch Drop Ball Mount with Extended Length for a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I recommend using the Curt Ball Mount part # D-28 which has a 6" drop. We do not have a 2" ball mount that offers exactly 6-1/2" of drop with an extended shank but since the vehicle will squat a bit while attached to the trailer, the 1/2" difference will not be an issue for you. This ball mount slides into a 2" receiver tube opening and works with hitch balls that have a 1" diameter shank. If you need a hitch ball I recommend using part # C40002 for 1-7/8", part # C40004 for 2", or part...

  • Recommended Towing Package for a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo
  • Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13235 is a confirmed fit for your 2002 Isuzu Rodeo with the door mounted spare tire. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" receiver tube opening. If you will be towing a trailer you will also need a trailer wiring harness and ball mount/hitch ball if you do not already have them. For a trailer wiring harness I recommend taking a look at the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118360 and for a ball...

  • What is Needed to Tow Safely With a 2011 Toyota Sienna XLE?
  • Happy to see that safety is important enough that you'd ask, and the answer is no, you do not need any additional equipment such as engine coolant in order to tow safely with your 2011 Toyota Sienna. Now, that does not necessarily mean something like a transmission cooler is a bad idea, as it will stop your Sienna from working quite so hard, but it is not necessary. What you will need, however, is a hitch, and the Curt # C13105 has a 2" x 2" opening with a max tongue weight of 350 lbs...

  • Best Video to Look at for Hitch Install on 2010 Toyota Highlander and Ball Mount Recommendation
  • I have linked the video showing Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75726 being installed on a 2011 Toyota Highlander which will be basically identical to your 2010 model. There is no way to know for sure what the height difference will be between the hitch and the trailer coupler so the best option when choosing a ball mount is to use an adjustable one. MaxxTow adjustable ball mount # MT70067 is one option. It offers up to a 10 inch drop or 8 inch rise in increments of 1-1/2 inches. The minimum...

  • Does Hitch Ball Height Factor in to Determining Rise/Drop Calculation for Picking Out Ball Mount
  • When determining rise you don't need to factor in the height of the hitch ball unless it's a high rise ball. The rise calculation is done by taking the measurement from the top of the hitch opening down to the ground and comparing it to the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when sitting level. In relation to the ball mount the dimension would be from the bottom of the ball mount platform to the top of the shank of the ball mount like in the picture I attached. An...

I have attached our Best 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailer Hitch Video where this part is reviewed.

  • What is Included with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Part # 13390
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13390 comes with everything you will need for installation except the tools including 4 carriage bolts, 4 hole spacers, 4 hex nuts, and 2 firewire bolt leaders. In order to install this hitch you will need a 10/19 mm socket, 8" extension, ratchet, torque wrench, 17/32" drill bit, rotary tool, and file. If you will be doing any towing with the hitch then you will also need a wiring harness, ball mount, and hitch ball. For a wiring harness I recommend...

  • Recommended Shank and Head for Unique Rise Required on 2011 Toyota Venza
  • You are correct the Curt # C45090 has the 3 inch measurement from the hitch pin center to the edge of that support. You have a deeply recessed hitch based on your description, so there are not any ball mounts that will fit. My recommendation is the Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17122 which has that support bar 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin. Then you can use the head # C17107 for a hitch ball platform compatible.

  • Which Hitch Balls Work with the Draw-Tite Ball Mount Part # 2923
  • Any trailer hitch ball that has a 1" diameter and at least 2-1/8" long shank will work with the Draw-Tite Ball Mount part # 2923. For a 1-7/8" hitch ball I recommend part # C40002, part # C40004 for 2", or part # C40005 for 2-5/16". I have also attached a selection of our hitch balls that will work with the above ball mount for you. To protect your ball mount/hitch ball, I recommend using the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # 7683.

  • Socket Size Needed for the 2" Hitch Ball Part # C40004
  • In order to torque down the 2" Hitch Ball part # C40004 to 250 ft. lbs. you will need to use a 1-1/2" socket. You can then use an adjustable crescent wrench to hold the hitch ball in place while you are torquing down the nut.
