Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - C40020 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number C40020. This is the Curt 2 inch hitch ball. If we take a look at the shank diameter, measuring the diameter of this portion right here that's going to give us a measurement of right at one inch, shank length measuring from the bottom of the ball platform to the end of the threaded portion, it's going to measure three inches. This is designed to fit drawbar thicknesses from one inch to two inch. It's going to offer a capacity of six thousand pounds and again, the ball diameter is going to measure two inches. This is going to be made from a steel construction with a nice chrome finish. It's going to be very strong and very durable, as well as do a good job at resisting rust and corrosion.

Now when installing this onto your ball mount, the ball shank diameter, which again is one inch, it needs to be within 1/16th of the ball hole diameter on your ball mount. It's going to have the wrench flats here on the side. That's going to allow you to easily tighten and get the hitch ball torque to specifications. It is going to come with a nice little tag. The tag's going to be located on the shank of the actual hitch ball. It's going to list everything that you need to know about the hitch ball as well as the torque rating.

This is what it's going to look like. You just need to be sure you remove that before you actually install this onto your ball mount. This portion right here is going to be the portion that goes through the ball hole on your mount and then you're going to place on the lock washer followed by the nut and then you can get everything tightened down and again, torque it to the specifications listed by the manufacturer. That's going to do it for our review of part number C40020. This is the Curt two inch hitch ball. .

Had to call this one in to make sure it was right for what I needed (my unique application, not because the description was inadequate). As reliable as ever, knowledgeable and easy to order and get delivered. For trailer related items, these folks are the best. Prices are always among the lowest and they are so good to work with. As many times as I have ordered parts from them, not once has there been any problem. Even when I ordered the wrong part, it was simple to get it returned and replaced. 596288

I have a 2010 Dodge Ram HEMI 5.7L that had the capability to tow but came with no package. I needed to pull my car so I checked around all the local stores only to find the tow balls had only 2" shanks and my truck needed the 3" variety. After exhausting the local area, I looked online and found etrailer.com had exactly what I needed. Requested 2 day shipping and got it right on time. I was able to pull my car from NC to FL the next day after receiving and installing. This was a great experience! 558594

I could not find anywhere In Juneau a trailer hitch ball with a long shank to fit my bumper. I finally went online and after visiting a half dozen sites found what I needed on etrailer.

I purchased the ball with the longer shank so I could mount a plate for a sway bar ball. The longer shank allowed me to do that and it worked perfectly. The ball is rugged and well made. 199043

Since I have a sway control bar, I needed a to add a control bracket. This necessitated a longer thread on the ball. This product is just what I needed. It fits perfectly and is easy to install. 194329

Do you have a question about this Hitch Ball?


  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer With a 2010 Honda Odyssey
  • By all means, take your children camping! I took a look at the owner's manual for a 2010 Honda Odyssey and it looks like the maximum total trailer weight (the weight of your loaded trailer) you Odyssey can tow is going to depend on the number of occupants. According to the manual, the number of occupants is calculated at 150 lbs per person, so take that into account, though it seems likely your Odyssey will still have enough capacity for a 2,300 lb trailer, just be mindful of the amount...

  • Will Sway Control Bracket # RP26003 Fit Draw-Tite Adjustable Ball Mount 6580
  • Yes, the sway control bracket # RP26003 will fit on the ball mount platform of adjustable ball mount # 6580. But the thickness of the platform on the ball mount is 3/4 inches so be sure to get a ball with a long enough shank to properly mount the ball. the combined thickness of the bracket and ball mount platform is 1-1/8 inches. A ball with a 3 inch long shank such as # C40020 is a good option to ensure enough shank sticks down to thread the nut on all the way.

  • 2 Inch Diameter Hitch Ball with Long Shank
  • We have the Long Shank Hitch Ball, # C40020, that has a 2 inch hitch ball and a 3 inch shank and a towing capacity of 6000 pounds. Another option is the Hidden Hitch Long Shank Ball, # 63849, which has a 3-3/8 inch long shank and 7,500 lb capacity. Finally you could use the Tow Ready Long Shank Hitch Ball, # 19255, that you mentioned. This ball has a 3-3/8 inch shank and 3,500 lb capacity.

  • Recommended Ball Mount and Vehicle Wiring for a 2014 Honda Odyssey Trailer Hitch
  • For your 2014 Honda Odyssey's Draw-Tite 2 Inch Hitch Receiver # 75270, you'll need to determine your Ball Mount Rise and Drop to ensure smooth towing. Please check out the attached link for more details on how to take these measurements. Once you have this information, you can select the appropriate ball mount for your vehicle. If you have yet to pick out your trailer or will be hauling more than one trailer type/size, I would recommend the following adjustable ball mount and hitch...

  • Hitch Ball Shank Length Recommendation for Sway Control Tab Used with Curt Ball Mount C45270
  • The sway control tab # RP26003 is 3/8 inch thick. The hitch balls recommended for the Ball Mount # C45270 are 2-1/8 inches long and 1 inch in diameter. So for a ball with a long enough shank you would want the part # C40020 for a 2 inch ball or part # 105TB for a ball that comes with several ball diameters.

  • Recommended Two Inch Hitch Ball To Use With Fastway Aluminum Ball Mount
  • The ball mount you referenced, part # DTLBM8200, has a hitch ball shank hole that measures 1 inch diameter and the platform measures 1 inch thick. After doing more research I found that the shank on the # SC23-C hitch ball is actually 2-1/8 inches long. The shank is considered a medium length on this hitch ball. A medium shank is considered between 2 and 3 inches. When installing a hitch ball, after the nut and washer have been installed, there should be at least one thread showing below...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-150 Towing Casita Travel Trailer
  • Everything looks good! The Ball Mount part # 2923 will work well for you and gets you close enough to level that the trailer would tow fine. The hitch ball part # C40020 will fit the ball mount, the bracket part # RP26003 fits the ball mount, and the ball # C40093 will fit that. You didn't mention a sway control unit though. For that the part # 83660 would work great. It comes with the smaller hitch ball as well.

  • Are Ball Mounts with Longer Shanks Recommended For Use with the Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003
  • The Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003 is 1/2 an inch thick, so you will need to order a ball with a longer shank more than likely. A lot of our customers order balls with longer shanks along with this bracket. Since ball mount platforms can vary in thickness it really just depends on what ball mount you plan on using. This bracket is designed to work on ball mounts with a 1 inch diameter hole, so for a longer 2 inch ball with a 1 inch shank you would want the Curt Hitch Ball part...

  • Would the Curt Hitch Ball part # C40020 fit a Thick Ball Mount Platform
  • Sounds like your previous hitch ball has a threaded shank that is too short for your ball mount. The Curt Hitch Ball part # C40020 that you referenced shank length of 3 inches which should be more than enough for whatever ball mount you have, but you might still check to be sure.

  • Hitch Ball That is 2 Inches with a Shank That Measures 1 Inch Diameter and 2-1/2 Inches Long
  • We don't currently have a hitch ball that has a 2-1/2 inch long shank but we have a couple that might work for you. The Curt # 40038 is a 2 inch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank that is 2-1/4 inches long. And then the Curt # C40020 is the same except the shank is 3 inches long.

  • Hitch Ball for 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup with Bumper Hitch
  • It is common for bumper mount hitches to use hitch balls with a 1 inch shank diameter. I recommend confirming that your 2003 Dodge Ram uses a hitch ball with a 1 inch shank. Also, often a longer shank is needed when a hitch ball is used with a bumper hitch. If you find your vehicle needs a hitch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank, I recommend the Curt Hitch Ball with 2 Inch Diameter and Long Shank # C40020.

To protect your ball shank when it's not in use I recommend the Convert-a-Ball cover # 005B. If you don't mind a longer shank, 3 inches, the Curt # C40020 would also work.

  • How Much Can a 2014 Toyota Tacoma Tow with the Bumper
  • The towing capacity of the bumper on your 2014 Toyota Tacoma assuming you have the cutout will vary from 3,300 - 3,500 lbs depending on options. I advise you to take a look starting at page 228 of your owner's manual to see these options. Therefore, so long as your jon boat does not exceed the above then you will be good to go. If you need a hitch ball, I recommend the Hitch Ball part # C40017 for 1-7/8" or part # C40020 for 2" so long as you have a 1" diameter ball hole. If your jon...

  • Weight of MaxxTow Ball Mount
  • The MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount # MT70067 weighs just over 14 lbs. It will allow you up to a 10" drop or 8" rise and has a gross towing weight capacity of 5,000 lbs with a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. It does not come with a pin and clip so for that you would want # PC3. The MaxxTow also has a 1" diameter shank and you'd need a hitch ball such as the 2" # C40020 to go with it.
