Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - C40008 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part #C40008. This is the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball from Curt. It's going to feature fine threads that are going to provide exceptionally tight and strong grip. This is made from a steel construction with a nice chrome finish so it's going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion. You're going to get the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball as well as the lock washer and the nut so everything that you see here is included. This unit, once installed, needs to be completely tightened down to 450 lbs. of torque. A few measurements to go over with you real quick.

The ball diameter again is going to be 2-5/16 of an inch. If we take a measurement of the shank, which is this portion right here, that's going to give us a length of 2-3/4 of an inch from the bottom of the ball platform to the very end of the shank. Now just the threaded portion looks like it's going to measure about 2-1/4 of an inch. The shank diameter is going to give us a measurement of 1-1/4 inches. Now in choosing the hitch ball, the ball shank diameter should be within 1/16 of an inch of the hitch ball hole diameter on your mount. Again, this is going to offer a hitch ball size of 2-5/16 of an inch and it's going to have the capacity of 20,000 lbs.

All that information is labeled right here on top of the hitch ball. Once you have this through the mount, the lock washer goes on the underside followed by the nut. You can go ahead and get it hand tied or you can tighten it with a wrench but you will need a torque wrench to get it to that 450 lbs. of torque that is required from the manufacturer. That's going to do it for our review of part #C40008. This is the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball from Curt. .

So far I have pulled my trailer over 10k miles with my ‘16 Ram 2500. The hitch is easy to use and really helped with sway even when empty. Best choice I could have made for my trailer.

No one had a 2 5/16 inch ball in 14000 tow weight. As we had to move our trailer and as I called numerous dealers and was told not available, I reached out to etrailer. They also didn't have it but suggested I go larger in the ball so long as it fit the tow hitch and the shank. It did I'm still using it and am very happy with the product and the quick service and turn around with my order. 370879

Good, solid product. We tow our 15,000 lb boat behind our Ford F-250 using it. You do need a pretty long torque wrench to tighten the nut to specs, and because there are no flats on the ball end, you have little choice but to damage the chrome plating in the throat a big with a pipe wrench as you tighten. But no big deal. 592829

This ball mount has served it purpose well. I purchased a new travel trailer that is heavy enough to require a weight distribution hitch when using the factory installed Class III hitch on our Dodge RAM 2500. I decided to upgrade to a Class V hitch combined with this ball mount to take delivery of the TT in order to defer decisions about a WD hitch until the actual load conditions were known. The hour trip home with this setup worked very well. Once the trailer was outfitted I was able to determine the actual tongue weight of the loaded trailer and I decided to purchase an appropriately sized Reese Straight Line WD hitch. However, this ball mount comes in handy for moving the trailer short distances without hassling with the WD system. The purchase experience through etrailer.com was first rate. 370090

Nicely plated and fits well. Without flat spots on the base to hold, I was afraid the ball would slip and turn while I tightened the nut, but I had no problem installing it on the Curt ballmount. It has great capacity, and I have no worries about it safely pulling my boat. 347371

This hitch ball looks good - the chrome finish looks too good to hook a trailer up to and it meets the weight ratings I was looking for, which is clearly stamped on the top of the ball. Now I just have to torque it up to the 450 ft lb spec required as stated on the attached tag and I will be good to go. 191320

Do you have a question about this Hitch Ball?


  • How to Torque Hitch Ball When Installing into Ball Mount
  • We don't have a combo of the Curt Hitch Ball # C40008 and Curt Ball Mount # C45340. The ball mount is extremely heavy-duty, rated up to 17,000 pounds. I think it's safe to assume you don't have a torque wrench rated up to 450 foot pounds just laying around. In which case you'll never really measure it at 450. When tightening the ball you want to make sure you get the lock washer so that it's completely flat. One way to help you do this is to put the ball mount in your hitch receiver...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution for Toy Hauler Tongue Weight 1,400-1,500 lbs
  • The Strait Line Weight Distribution System part # RP66075 will be the better choice for your tongue weight range of 1,400 to 1,500 lbs. This system has the best sway control design on the market which fights to prevent sway before it starts. It does require some frame drilling though which I can understand is something you'd rather not do, but once it's done you'd be good to go. The holes do not affect the integrity of the frame either as the bolts being tightened where the holes are drilled...

  • Recommended Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System For 30 Foot Trailer
  • The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 15,000 lbs GTW, 1,500 lbs TW, # BXW1506, may be a good fit for the weights and dimensions you gave. The maximum gross towing weight is 15,000 lbs and the maximum tongue weight is 1500 lbs. You will also need a hitch ball that is either 2 inches like # 63840 or 2-5/16 inches like # C40008. This system will give you up to a 13 inch rise or a 7 inch drop which will accomodate your 2 inch need from shank to top of hitch...

  • How Do You Tighten a Hitch Ball that Doesn't have Wrench Flats
  • If you have a bench vise you can put a cloth around the ball and use the vise to hold it so you can torque the nut to spec on ball # C40008. Like you said this ball doesn't have wrench flats so there isn't really a better way than using a vise. If you do not already have a ball you could use # 63840 instead which does have wrench flats.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a 15,000 lb Box Trailer
  • I do have a solution for you but unfortunately you do have to use a TorkLift XL Shank like part # TLM9011 along with the SuperHitch on your tow vehicle to be able to use the Everest Weight Distribution System # TLWD1000. If 15,000 lbs is the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) of your trailer or that is the most it will weigh when you are towing it then you can potentially use the Strait-Line # RP66075 instead. This is rated to tow up to a 17,000 lb trailer and it has a tongue weight...

  • Can the Ball Mount # C45340 be Ordered with the Curt Hitch Ball # C40008 Already Installed
  • I do have a solution for you, but we do not install parts like the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45340 and 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40008 before shipping them out. Any ball mounts that come with a hitch ball installed come like that directly from the manufacturer. If you do not need the full 17,000 lb capacity of the ball mount # C45340 that you referenced then you can use the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45331 which is essentially the same exact ball mount with a 2-5/16"...

  • How Long Should Hitch Ball Shank Be to Fit Curt Forged Ball Mount # C45458
  • The 2-1/2 inch shank length on B&W ball # BWHB94004 might be just a bit too short for ball mount # C45458. The recommended ball, # C40008, has a shank length of 2-3/4 inches. Basically the shank has to be long enough for the nut to thread all the way on with about 3 or more threads sticking out past the bottom of the nut.

For a 2-5/16" hitch ball with a 20,000 lb capacity the Curt # C40008, which has a 2-3/4" long and 1-1/4" diameter shank, would work, or if you need a 2" hitch ball the Curt # A-90 has a 10,000 lb capacity with a 2-5/8" long.

  • Weight Distribution for an RV on Ford F-550 Chassis Towing 9,000 Pound Car Trailer
  • The Ford F-550 chassis is up in the medium duty range but with the weight of the RV body on it and the tongue weight of the trailer at 1,000 pounds, you would likely still benefit from weight distribution. A good rule to go by is if the loaded trailer gross weight is at least 50 percent of the vehicle weight, or if the vehicle sags at the back when connected to a trailer, weight distribution is a good idea. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue...

  • Can Flash Ball Mount be Used for Trailer With GVWR of 15,000 lbs?
  • The Flash Ball Mount # DTBM5400 you purchased does have a tongue weight capacity of 2,000 lbs but its towing capacity is actually 14,000 lbs. The GVWR of your trailer is 15,000 lbs, which is the max capacity it can handle so with 10,000 lbs of tractor and gear, the weight of the trailer is going to determine if the Flash and its 14,000 lb capacity can accommodate your needs. If the trailer and gear is at or close to 14,000 lbs I recommend going with a higher capacity ball mount. In regards...
