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. .

Hello George: I recently ordered the following for my 2005 Silverado : 13322 Class III Hitch - Gm 1500/2500 Pickup Curt Angled Ball Mnt - 2 Rise, 4 Drop, 10-1/4 Long Pin And Clip For Class III Iv And V Trailer Hitch Receiver Pollak 7- And 4-pole Connector Socket W/mount Bracket I got free shipping and received the hitch in 4 days. I thought I would save some money and install it myself not knowing what all it entailed. So I reviewed the U-Tube video and figured it wouldn't be so hard. The video was exactly representative of my vehicle. Everything bolted right up. To those that wish to do this I will caution you the my biggest challenge was removing the ball that was rusted onto my bumper. The other things you may run into is removing the spare because sometimes the lowering mechanisms are seized due to rust like mine was. Both the ball and spare tire hoist had to be cut off. Other than those two items the install went smoothly. The hitch looks awesome and as though it was factory installed. Thank you for a quality product and an excellent price. 311419

The products that I purchased was to complete a bigger order that I placed with eTrailer. The No-Drill Mount Bracket - Short 18140 fit as though it was dealer installed. I also purchased the trailer hitch, 4 prong wiring kit and adjustable ball mount from etrailor which installed in about an hour on my 2014 Jeep Wrangler. 143402

The products (ball mount; hitch pin; spring) i received from etrailer.com are Curt branded. For me that means a first class hitch, accessories and great service from etrailer.com. eTrailer.com had the best total cost for the items I wanted.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Hitch Pins and Clips

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Difference Between Curt Hitch Pins # C21500 and # C21504
    The difference between the two pin and clips is the length. The part # C21500 has a useable span of 3-3/16 inches and the part # C21504 has a useable span of 2-3/4 inches.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Determine the Amount of Drop Needed on Ball Mount for Towing Trailer
    When determining the amount of rise or drop you will need on the ball mount for your towing setup, you just need to take a couple simple measurements. The first, which you have already taken, is from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver when your vehicle is parked and on level ground. The second is from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when it is also parked on level ground. You did state you took a measurement when the trailer was attached to a different vehicle,...

  • Recommended Hitch and Wiring for 2016 BMW X5 with M-Sport Package

I've added a link to a video of this hitch being installed on a '16 X5 for you to take a look at. The recommended ball mount for your vehicle is # C45030; for a hitch ball you would need # 63845 for a 2" ball or # 63847 for a 2-5/16" ball. You would also need pin and clip # C21500. For a brake controller with your 2016 BMW X5, I recommend the Curt Echo Mobile Trailer...

  • How Can the Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier Be Secured to Deter Theft?
    The Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier w/ 2" Receiver Opening - 2" Hitches # RM-195225 can be secured with a hitch lock like the B&W Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - Flush - 2-3/4" Span - Stainless Steel # BWTS51234. Then you can use a spare tire lock like the MasterLock # 262DAT or etrailer.com lock # e98892.

  • 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...

  • Ball Mount Needed with a 5 inch Rise for Use with a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
    A high-low adapter like the Roadmaster Adapter # RM-076 that you referenced is designed for use with a flat towing setup, but I do have a solution for you to tow your trailer level with your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. If the 10-1/2 inch measurement that you took of the hitch receiver on your Atlas is from the ground to the top of the inside of your 2 inch receiver, like the Curt # C13366, then you will need a ball mount that has at least a 5 inch rise as rise and drop measurements typically...

  • Does Capacity of Ball Mount Change if Used in Rise Position
    The towing and tongue weight capacity of the Curt Ball Mount # C45338 does not change if you use it in the rise position; it has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and towing capacity of 10,000 lbs no matter if you use it to get 8-1/4 inches of drop or 7 inches of rise. Keep in mind your capacity is limited to that of your truck and hitch receiver. For example, the Curt Trailer Hitch # C14006 for your 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 also has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and towing...

  • What Size Shank on a Hitch Ball is Needed for the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45342
    The Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45342 is compatible with a hitch ball that has a 1-1/4" shank. A popular 2" hitch ball option is part # A-90 but if you need a 2-5/16" hitch ball I recommend part # 63840 instead. You will also need a hitch pin and clip # C21500 to secure the ball mount to your trailer hitch. If you would like a locking hitch pin then I recommend going with part # e98880 that we offer.

  • What is the Wall Thickness of the Curt Class III Ball Mount Part # C45036
    I spoke with my contact at Curt who informed me that the wall thickness of the Curt Class III Ball Mount part # C45036 is about 3/16" or .188" thick. In order to receive a ball mount with a wall thickness of 1/4" or .250 you would need to go up to a Class IV like the Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches part # C45310. This ball mount does not come with a hitch ball or hitch pin/clip like the above ball mount does but you can add them using part # A-90 and part # C21500. I have attached a review...

    For a base plate for your 2015 Jeep Wrangler to use with our most popular tow bar the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar part # RM-525 that I would recommend you would want the Roadmaster base plate kit part # 1444-1. The # RM-525 will replace the ball mount that is in the hitch of your RV. It will slide into the hitch and secure with the hitch pin you used for your ball mount like part # C21500. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the...

  • 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...

I would instead suggest the Draw-Tite hitch # 75690 over the Curt hitch because if you decide to transport anything like a bike rack or cargo carrier in the future you will need to use a stabilization strap # 18050 per Curt's warranty and with the Draw-Tite hitch you won't. Next suggestion is we offer a...

Class III hitches offer better compatibility with hitch-mount accessories and will often have a higher capacity. I recommend Curt Class III hitch # C13149 as long as you do not have the EV version or if you do you can use part # 75235 from Draw-Tite. Both will install in the same way as shown in the linked video and both include the required hardware....

    Your 2014 Subaru Forester can be fitted with two types of hitch, either a 1-1/4-inch Class II type or a 2-inch Class III. Many hitch-mount accessory items like your Twiststep (and many bike racks, for example) have the flexibility to be used with either size hitch receiver. Generally a 2-inch hitch has broader compatibility with a range of accessory items. Often a Class III hitch will have a higher tongue weight capacity than a Class II hitch.

  • Recommended Trailer Receiver Hitch for 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
    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...
