Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Pins and Clips - Standard Hitch Pin - C21500 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number C21500. This is the Curt pin and clip for class 3, class 4, and class 5 trailer hitch receivers. It's going to measure 5/8 of an inch in diameter. It's going to come with the retaining clip. It's designed to fit 2 inch and 2 1/2 inch square receiver hitches. The overall length is going to give us a measurement of about 5 1/4 inch.

Now the amount of usable length that we have is measuring from the pinhole here to the beginning of the curve. That's going to give us a measurement of 3 3/16 of an inch. So just to give you an idea of how this works, we have our ball mount set up inside of our hitch. We have our holes in line with each other. Now we're ready to secure it.

So we'll just take our pin, slide that through, take our clip, and secure it right here on the other side. That pin's going to stay nice and firm on there. As you can see, the pin and clip is going to hold our ball mount in place. It's not going to allow it to come out of the hitch. That's going to do it for today's review of part number C21500.

This is the Curt pin and clip for class 3, 4, and 4 trailer hitch receivers. .

  • What is the Max Weight Rating of a Class V Hitch Pin
    Hitch pin and clips like the Curt # C21500 that you referenced don't actually have weight ratings. They are able to withstand the weight ratings of the hitch class they are designed to fit. Since this fits up to Class V trailer hitch receivers it can safely be used with a Class V hitch as long as you don't exceed the weight ratings of that trailer hitch. The tongue weight on the ball mount is what keeps the pin from bearing all of the weight.

  • Weight Capacity of Trailer Hitch Pins
    Trailer Hitch Pins like the Curt # C21500 do not have specific weight ratings and there is not a database available that will have this type of information. Generally speaking, a 5/8 inch diameter pin, which is designed for Class III, IV and V trailer hitches, will have a rating that exceeds what a Class V hitch will be able to handle. A 1/2 inch diameter pin for Class I and II trailer hitches will typically have a capacity of up to 3,500 pounds.

  • CURT Trailer Hitch Pin Capacity and Pintle Hitch Ball Recommendation
    The CURT Hitch Pin, # C21500, does not have an official capacity because it far exceeds the ability of most anything it can be placed in. A believe I have found the perfect ball for you. Take a look at Pintle Hitch Ball, # 63019. It has a 2-5/16 inch diameter with a 1-1/4 inch threaded shank. It has a capacity of 14,000 pounds. This is the highest capacity ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank. It may be too close for comfort if you are towing exactly 14,000 pounds. If at all possible, reduce...

  • Can a Padlock be Placed on the End of Standard Trailer Hitch Pin # C21500
    The hole in the hitch pin # C21500 or any other standard hitch pin with clip is not large enough for a useful padlock. It would take a very small lock that could be defeated easily. That is why for a more secure option we carry locking hitch pins. The most popular locking hitch pin for a 2 inch trailer hitch (5/8 inch diameter) is # e98880. I have included a link to a video review of this locking hitch pin for you to view. I have also included a link to the other locking hitch pins we...

  • Wiring Harness and Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI Rabbit
    We do have a 4-pole flat trailer connector for the 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI Rabbit but the part # 118787 does not fit. The wiring harness you need is Curt 4-pole flat part # C56405. We installed the Curt wiring harness on a 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI. Since the 2019 GTI Rabbit is just a trim package upgrade, the wiring harness fits the same. I have attached a video for your reference. If you need a hitch for the Rabbit, I recommend EcoHitch part # 306-X7375. The EcoHitch's cross tube...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Ball Mount Rise for U-Haul Trailer Coupler for 2015 Mazda CX-5
    On your 2015 Mazda CX-5, the measurement you need is from the ground to the inside top of the receiver. If you look at the attached video we that measurement listed at 15-1/2 inches so it is different from the 13 inch you referenced. For your 13 inch measurement you will then need a 5 inch rise. I recommend the B&W Heavy-Duty Ball Mount - 5" Rise, 6" Drop - 10-3/4" Long - 16,000 lbs # BWBMHD30014 or the Curt # C45336 and then you will need the # A-90 hitch ball. The pin and clip...

  • How Can the Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier Be Secured to Deter Theft?

    It is possible that you can open your cargo door when using the 32x72 Lets Go Aero GearCage FP6 Slide-Out Cargo Carrier # H01397 with the GearBag 6 Cargo Bag # HCR635. Since there are a variety of different door styles out there though you will need to take some measurements to confirm this.

The connector end will be long enough to hang outside your hatch when you need to connect it to your trailer.

  • Recommended Hitch Extension and Drop for Using Bike Rack on Jeep Wrangler with Spare Tire
    Normally the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Adapter # RM-077-8 is designed for use with a flat towing setup but I don't really see the harm in pairing this with your bike rack. It measures 10" long and has an 8" drop like what you're looking for. You're going to need a hitch pin like the Curt # C21500, but I also recommend tossing in the etrailer Anti-Rattle Hitch Stabilizer # e99007 since you'll be adding another connection point to your setup.

  • Distance From Ground To Curt Hitch C13382 On a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
    In regards to the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13382 which is a fit for a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, the distance from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube opening is 15". Therefore, if the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler (while level) is 21" then you need a ball mount with a 6" rise. The Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches part # C45100 will work for this but you also need a Pin/Clip part # C21500 and Hitch Ball part # 40038.

    There is a ball mount that has a 2" hitch ball and the 7" of drop you are looking for. Since you have a 10,000 lb capacity Demco Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # DM13689-95, in order to match the weight capacity and get the 7" of drop you need, you will need an adjustable ball mount: - B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10040B (Black) or # BWTS10040C (Chrome) The Tow & Stow has a 2" and also a 2-5/16" ball, a 10,000 lb towing capacity, and up to 7" of drop so it matches everything...

    While there aren't any parts designed specifically to keep road debris from flying up under the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT (or any of our watersport trailers for that matter), this is a pretty bare-bones trailer so it wouldn't be difficult to add something like that at home. In regards to the 10" hitch height of your Winnebago Travato Class B camper van, that actually isn't a big deal. All you need is a ball mount with a 5" rise to match the 15" coupler height of this Malone...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500
    The best trailer hitch for your 2008 GMC Sierra 2500 will vary depending on what you're going to use it for and possibly whether you have an 8 ft. or 6-1/2 ft. bed. If you need to haul a lot of weight I would suggest the Curt Class V CD 2-1/2" # C15703. This will get the most out of your truck for your dollar and will work with either length of truck beds. The Curt Class III # 13208 will also work with both bed lengths and would be more appropriate if you're not hauling as much weight. I...

Keep in mind your capacity is limited to that of your truck and hitch receiver.

    The correct hitch for your truck will depend on what capacity you were needing. For instance, if you'll be towing trailers weighing less than 6000 lbs, a Class III hitch like the # 75662 would be ideal. The hitch would bolt to the existing crossmember and the rear bumper. For a heaver trailer (assuming your truck has the necessary capacity), a Class IV hitch like # 14361 would work well. The Curt # C15409 you referenced is only a fit for trucks already equipped with the factory hitch. You...
