Video Transcript for Curt Pop-In Ball for Factory Ford and Ram Underbed Gooseneck Hitches Review

All right, today we're going to show you a Curt Pop-In Ball, for factor Ford and Ram Underbed Gooseneck hitches, part number C60601. A couple of specs about the ball itself, is first off this ball where your coupler mounts on to is 2-5/16. Okay, this is also rated for 30,000 pounds of gross trailer weight as well. Now, to install and remove your ball, it's all contained in one unit. You can see here there's a little tab that comes up and what that does is unlocks the bearings at the bottom here. If you can see me, I can actually move these bearings back and forth, they actually lock into place.

Now, if I take it and make sure the lever matches the contour of the ball, these bearings down here don't move and it's locked into place. We'll go ahead and put it into our hitch here. Make sure the levers up and it falls right into place. Lock it, put that lever down and it stays into place. Now, a few other specs to know about this hitch ball is that this is designed for 2011 and newer Ford Super duty factory hitches and also 2014 newer Ram hitches. As a bonus, this will actually work with the Curt underbed gooseneck hitches as well, as what we have here.

This is a great replacement in case yours is lost, or damaged, or borrowed. With that, that'll finish it for the Curt Pop-In Ball for factory Ford and Ram Underbed Gooseneck hitches, part number C60601. .

I don't write reviews, but this time I am. I am totally pleased in my dealings with etrailer in all respects. The friendliness of Katrina B. And the feedback of George J. product was delivered on time and quickly compared to other companies. I bought the C60601 25/16" ball and the C60608 chain anchors for my '17 f350 King Ranch. If you got the picture I have put them in a water proof hard case so they won'the rattle. The case can't weigh more than 3# and the whole thing weighs 19.5 lbs. They are good looking and heavy duty pieces of equipment and would cost about 21/2 times that much at the dealership. I will use them for my 24ft gooseneck in hauling my tractors and hay on occasion. Thank you 482783

I could only find the Curt Pop-In Ball for my gooseneck horse trailer one place locally and it was almost twice the cost of the ball I ordered from etrailer. The ordering process and delivery from etrailer was quick and simple. I expect to do more business with etrailer in the near future. 141064

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


  • Needing a Gooseneck Ball for a 2017 Ford F-350 With the Factory Puck System
  • I found a gooseneck ball kit that will fit your 2017 Ford F-350. I recommend the Reese Elite Pop-In Ball Kit, # RP30137, for your Ford. The Reese kite will also include the safety chain loops and the 2-5/16 ball, but the Reese ball includes an integrated lock that makes installing and removing the ball easy and fast.

  • Hitch Ball for 2017 Ford F-350 With Factory Gooseneck
  • Each of the replacement gooseneck hitch balls for the factory gooseneck hitch on a 2017 Ford F-350 are chrome plated steel such as # C60601. There are also chrome-plated balls available that have a 1 inch rise # RP19315, or a 3 inch ball # RP19314 if needed.

  • Will Demco Recon 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550045-5W Work with High Rise Gooseneck Ball
  • I spoke with my contact at Demco regarding compatibility of the Demco Recon 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550045-5W and the Husky OEM gooseneck ball you mentioned that has a 1 inch rise. He said that unfortunately the Recon will only work with a standard height gooseneck ball (4 inches) so one with a rise will not allow for a secure connection. In order to use this hitch you would need to replace your existing ball with a standard size like the Curt # C60601.

  • Shank Dimensions of Curt Pop-In Gooseneck Ball for Ford, GM, and Nissan Factory Gooseneck Hitches
  • The Curt Pop-In Ball, part # C60629, has a shank with a diameter of 2-1/4 inches and is 3 inches long. It's designed specifically to fit the factory gooseneck hitches that are an option with newer model Fords, GMs, and Nissans. If this is what you have then the hitch ball will fit your truck. If you have a different model truck, or don't have a factory gooseneck hitch, let me know what you have and I'll see if we have a ball that will work for you. For example if you have a Ram with...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 6-1/2 Bed
  • For short bed pickups like your 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 the 7-1/2" offset of the Convert-A-Ball Adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 often isn't enough. You can actually calculate your clearance by using the following formula: (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from center of fifth wheel hitch jaw to truck cab (or gooseneck ball) B = Length of offset (slider clearance or offset) C = Width of trailer divided by 2 (to get half) You need at least 4" of clearance to be able to make a 90 degree...

  • Are Ford and Ram OEM Gooseneck Hitch Compatible with Offset for Better Turning Clearance
  • The Curt 4" Offset Ball for Double-Lock Gooseneck Hitch # C602 is available only if you have the double-lock model. The other Curt models that drop in and lock through the ball lever like # C60601 featuring the Pop-In or OEM Underbed System will not have the offset option available, so it is a bummer the dealer didn't give you what you asked for with your 2018 Ram 2500 Laramie. To give you the clearance you desire, the other option is to use a gooseneck coupler offset like # BWTEXA4200...

  • Can the Convert-A-Ball Adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 be Used on a 2017 Ram 3500 with the Factory Rail Kit
  • If you already have a gooseneck hitch ball and safety chain loops, like the Reese part # RP30140, installed on your 2017 Ram 3500 with a factory rail kit, then the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset # CAB-C5GX1216 will allow you to tow your 5th wheel trailer without using a 5th wheel hitch. You do need to swap out the hitch ball though if it has a plastic latch. The Curt # C60601 can be used as a replacement since it has the metal latch on top. The adapter...

  • Gooseneck Balls for a 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Gooseneck Package
  • I believe you are looking for what is called an offset ball. There are currently only straight, regular balls for the 2014 Ram 2500 short bed with factory gooseneck package. You could use # C60601 or # RP30140. An offset ball will not offer all that much more additional clearance since they only move the pivot point back a maximum of 5 inches. In most cases this isn't enough if clearance is already an issue when making tight turns.

  • Replacement Gooseneck Ball for Mopar Ram Hitch Prep Package
  • The Replacement Hitch Ball # BWGNXA2000 is designed to fit B and W Turnover hitches. Since you said you have factory equipment I am assuming you mean you have the Mopar hitch prep package and are in need of a gooseneck ball. If so, you would actually need the part # C60601, or part # RP30140 if you want the safety chain loops as well.

  • Best Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Ball for 2016 Ford F-350 with Factory Gooseneck/5th Wheel Prep Package
  • The correct gooseneck ball kit for your brand new 2016 Ford F-350 with the factory prep package is # C60692. It includes the actual 2-5/16 inch ball, safety chain loops, and a rubber cover to cover the ball hole when the ball isn't being used. If you want the ball by itself it is # C60601. I have linked videos for both parts for you. We have one physical location in Missouri but we can ship products to Denver fast so you can place your order with confidence.

  • How to Remove the Curt Pop-In Ball # C60601 with Broken Release on a 2016 Ram
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt who told me that there is an access hole at the bottom of the OEM gooseneck hitch on your 2016 Ram. You are going to look for an aluminum or plastic plug that once removed will allow you to retract the locking mechanism on the Curt Pop-In Ball # C60601. Please note that if you have left the hitch ball in your gooseneck hitch for a while (5 months or more) without applying grease to it then there could very well be some rust that is built up as well....

  • Replacement Ball Only for 2015 Ford F-350 with Factory Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • For your 2015 Ford F-350 that came with the factory gooseneck hitch you can use replacement ball # RP19311 or # C60601. Either ball will fit.

  • Loose Gooseneck Ball in 2014 Ram 3500 with Factory 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Package
  • If it is just the ball that is moving around some movement is normal. But the ball should move less than 1/16 of an inch in any direction. Movement beyond that indicates a problem. The ball may not be the correct one for your 2014 Ram 3500. Or there could be something wrong with the ball and it is not in the locked position. If it is the hitch itself that is moving around under the bed of the truck then that is a major concern. Do not tow with the truck and take it to a dealership immediately....

  • Installation of Curt Pop-In Ball on 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 UnderBed Gooseneck System
  • I can help set your mind at ease about the Curt Ball # C60601. To help you understand why the ball is able to spin I want to tell you what's going on inside the hitch. The way the ball sits in and secures to the underbed system without a pin is by the use of the ball-bearings. To make this Pop-in and Go feature work Curt had to machine a groove into the gooseneck head. I have attached an image to give you a visual. I went out to the warehouse to test it myself, and found that the...

  • Purpose of the 4 Holes in the Bed of a 2015 Ram 3500 with Factory Gooseneck
  • The safety chains of your 2015 Ram gooseneck factory hitch will install in the two rear pucks that are behind the ball. The two in the front are for if you wanted to install a fifth wheel hitch. The hitch would install in all four of the pucks. For that you would want a fifth wheel hitch part # RP30160.

  • Troubleshooting Curt Pop In Ford Gooseneck C60601 that Doesnt Release
  • On the bottom of the hitch ball there is a plastic plug. Remove this plug. Using a pliers, manually turn the paddle to allow the retaining balls to retract. If the retaining balls do not retract, spray liberally with penetrating oil. If the retaining balls remain set, force will need to be applied via a hammer to the hitch ball to attempt to jar the retaining balls loose.

  • Is the Curt Hitch Ball # C40085 Compatible with a Gooseneck Hitch
  • The Curt Hitch Ball # C40085 that you referenced is meant to fit a trailer hitch receiver ball mount. Due to its design it is not compatible with a gooseneck hitch. We do have some gooseneck hitch ball options like the Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Hitch Ball # 19309, the Replacement Hitch Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitches # BWGNXA2006, and the Curt Pop-In Ball # C60601. These are specific to certain gooseneck hitches though so you will need to make sure that you choose the correct...

As long as you have a Ford F-250 or Ford F-350 from 2011-2017 with a factory gooseneck hitch then the above hitch ball will work well for you.

  • Will Curt Double Lock Gooseneck Hitch Ball Fit 2015 Ram OEM Gooseneck Hitch?
  • The Curt Hitch Ball # C60616 from the Curt Double Lock, Flip and Store Gooseneck Hitch # C60620 will not fit in the 2015 Ram OEM Hitch. The Ram system utilizes a completely different securing system, so I recommend the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit for Ram Underbed Gooseneck Hitch # C60618. If you just want the hitch ball, that is part # C60601.

  • Gooseneck Ball for a 2016 Ram 3500 with Factory Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The factory installed gooseneck trailer hitch that is in your 2016 Ram 3500 will take either Curt ball and safety chain loops # C60618 or the Reese version # RP30140. If you want just the ball then use # C60601. Please note that if the ball on your hitch is supposed to be held in with a rod, the handle for which will be in the driver's side wheel well, then it is not the factory gooseneck hitch. It could be a dealer installed hitch though. For those I would have to know the brand of...

  • The Curt Pop-In Ball for Factory Underbed Gooseneck Hitches part # C60629 is 5-1/8" from the base where it sits on the bed floor to the top of the hitch ball. However, this hitch ball has a taller base than normal. I am not sure there is an exact standard height for all gooseneck hitch balls but we do have the Curt Pop-In Ball for Factory Underbed Gooseneck Hitches part # C60601 which has more of a standard base and only measures 4" from the base where it sits on the bed floor to the top...

If you need the safety chain loops as well then I recommend the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit part # C60618 which has the same hitch ball listed above. The tallest gooseneck hitch ball they have for your Ram is the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit part # BWGNXA2062 which is around 1-3/4" more than the above option from Curt. If height is what you are after then this is the hitch ball...

Doesn't matter if you have a dually axle, this kit works either way. Install video attached. If you have the underbed hitch prep you would just need the Curt Gooseneck Ball part # C60601.

If the truck you bought is not one of those then this ball won't fit even if the shank is the right size (shank is 2-1/4 inches in diameter).
