Video Transcript for Curt Pintle Hook Review

Hi everyone, Aiden here with etrailer. Today we're gonna be taking a look at these Curt bolt-on pintle hooks. These are gonna be separate pieces that bolt on to a platform that goes into your hitch, that allows us to select whatever drop height we want and then bolt the pintle hook to the platform. This gives us adjustment, to make sure that we're towing our trailer level. But at the end of the day, these are pintle hooks, these will allow us to tow a lunette ring trailer. And the three versions you see here today are gonna be three different weight capacities.

Functionally, they're the exact same, they're gonna work the same way and offer the same hardware, and the same mounting locations. But they really just vary in weight capacity, so let's check 'em out. So the one we have hooked up today will give us a gross trailer weight rating of 30,000 pounds, that's how much weight it can pull. And the new max tongue weight of 8,000 pounds, that's the maximum vertical load limit on the end. The smaller version here, it's gonna look pretty much the exact same.

That's gonna have a gross trailer weight rating of 20,000 pounds, and a max tongue weight of 4,000 pounds. And then the smallest of the bunch, the one that looks just slightly different on top here, is going to have a 10,000 pound gross trailer weight rating and a 2,000 pound max tongue weight. So you can kind of pick these out to match the platform you're mounting it to and your trailer, and make sure that it's up to spec, based on what you need as far as weight capacity goes. Now using this and hooking it up is really straightforward. You've got your pin and safety clips that are just included with the pintle hook and kept in place with the cable.

Once that's out, you can lift this handle and lift up on the top, hook up to your lunette ring trailer, and drop it down in place and re-pin it when you're done. But, we'll open this up and back up the truck. (Aiden attaching hook) Now, all three of these weight capacities will work with lunette rings that have a diameter of two and a half or three inches. And they're also gonna have the same bolt patterns on the back to hook up. And again, they all do come with hardware.

Now for the hole spacing, vertically center on center, that's going to be one and three quarters of an inch. And then from side to side, that's going to be three and three eighths of an inch. For the most part, that should be very standard and match up with most of the platforms out there. But double check the measurements just to be safe. You can mix and match brands if you like. We've tested these ones out, with a couple other ones for two and a half inch hitches today, and they worked out just fine. And then of course, you can find some for other hitch sizes if need be. And overall, I think these are gonna be a really solid option for some pintle hook hookups. If you're looking for a bolt-on option, I think these will do just fine. There's of course other options within the category, if you need one that maybe has a ball for a standard coupler on there, so you can use a standard coupler and a lunette ring trailer, those options are available. I'd also recommend maybe looking into an option where you don't have to bolt it on at all, it's just a one piece design. A lot of those just come straight out from the hitch, so there's no height adjustment. But in the case of our trailer today, we don't really need height adjustment. We're not using that feature and utilizing it, so there's no need. But if you do need that height adjustment this can be a way to go. Now if you're looking for adjustment to use with multiple trailers and you frequently need to change how much of a drop you have, you might look for a system that has easier adjustment, rather than bolting it on. Something from BMW or Curt, both have really solid options in terms of adjustment where you just pull pins and drop it down. Or, loosen bolts on the back to make your height adjustments. Again, it's just a simpler process to make it work. So if you do have multiple trailers, that can be a better option. But they are more expensive, and if you don't need that, then there's no point in spending the money on it. You can just go with something like this, bolt it into the right height that you need, set it and forget it, and you'll be good to go. Of course, be sure to pick up a platform for it if you do choose to go this route. And make sure that everything is weight rated appropriately for your whole towing setup. But that'll do it for our look at these Curt bolt-on pintle hooks. Thanks for watchin'.

This item works great for my application. I was able to bolt this onto the back of my truck for pulling my equipment trailer. I like this better than using a slide in pintle receiver. IT gets the trailer closer to the back of my truck making it ride better.

  • Diameter of Snapper Pin of Curt Pintle Hook # C48215
    The diameter of the snapper pin of the Curt Pintle Hook # C48215 that you referenced is 5/16 inch.

  • Will TowReady Pintle Hook # 63105 Work for 22,000 lb Trailer/Cargo Load
    The TowReady Bolt-On Pintle Hook # 63105, will work for you in the capacity that you want. It is rated for 30,000 lbs of GTW (gross towing weight). You will have to bolt this product directly to the frame of the tow vehicle or to a reinforced bumper to retain its 30,000 lb GTW as long as the tow vehicle can handle the capacity of the load being towed. Using a pintle hitch mount that attaches to a hitch receiver on a vehicle will reduce the weight capacity to 10,000-12,000 lbs.

  • Availability Of a Pintle Hitch To Fit Tightly Around a 2-1/2" Lunette Ring
    As pintle hitches are designed to fit both 2-1/2" and 3" lunette rings they are all going to have some play which allows it to fit both rings correctly. I find the pintle hitches like the Curt # C48215 have far less play than others which have a combination ball and pintle mount.

  • Pintle Hook Recommendation with 30k Capacity
    For a pintle hook with a 30k capacity that is designed to bolt on to a mounting plate like the part # 63057 we have the part # C48215 which would work well. You didn't say how you would attach the hook but this would work well.

  • Is It Safe To Tow Trailer That Is Not Level?
    If the nose of your trailer is nose down when hooked up to your vehicle it will cause additional tongue weight on the hitch which could in theory lower your fuel economy, but I do not have an exact figure. As long as the extra tongue weight on the hitch is not exceeding the capacities of your vehicle or hitch it is not unsafe, but is also not ideal. I recommend using a different pintle hook mount like the Pintle Hook Mount, 12-1/2" Tall, 8K # 63058 which will allow you to tow your trailer...

  • Is Mounting Hardware Needed for Buyers Products Fabricators Hitch Plate & Tow Ready Pintle Hook
    There actually won't be any bolts needed at all for the hitch plate and pintle hook you mentioned. The reason is that you will weld on the Buyers Products Fabricators Hitch Plate # 3371809027A, and the mounting bolts actually come with the Pintle Hook # C48215.

  • Will the Pintle Hook # 63015 Attach to the Super Titan Pintle Hook Plate # RP38186
    The Pintle Hook # C48215 that you referenced does include mounting hardware to attach to a pintle hook plate like the Super Titan Forged Pintle Hook Plate # RP38186 that you referenced. I also pulled these two parts and was able to determine that they are compatible with each other and that the # C48215 will attach to the # RP38186. Check out the video I attached to see that the products are compatible.

  • Recommended Pintle Hook for the Reese RP38186
    I had the bolt holes on the Super Titan Forged Pintle Hook Plate for 3" Trailer Hitches # RP38186 measured, and they are actually 5/8". That being said, I suggest going with the Curt Pintle Hook # C48215 to attach to it. This does include 1/2 inch hardware, but is rated up to 30,000 pounds and will work very nicely.

  • Lunnette Ring Recommendation to go along with the Pintle Hook part # C48215
    I would go with the Adjustable Lunette Ring by Tow Ready part # 63036. This comes with an adjustable channel to allow you to adjust the height of the ring so that your trailer gets towed level.

  • Would a Curt Pintle Hook work with Military Trailer with Lunette Ring Coupler
    If the military trailer you are looking at has a lunette ring coupler for attaching to a pintle the part # C48205 would do a great job as long as the total weight of the trailer loaded was less than 10k. Let's say you need more capacity than that though, the part # C48215 has a 30k capacity. For a mount that would fit in a trailer hitch you would want the part # 63057.

  • Recommendation For Pintle Hitch To Work With 3-Inch Lunette Ring On 10-Ton Trailer
    Yes, the Curt Bolt-On Pintle Hook, Item # C48210, will work with a 3-inch lunette ring on a 10-ton trailer. It has a maximum weight capacity of 20,000-lbs and a maximum tongue weight capacity of 4,000-lbs. The mounting hardware is included, and it can be bolted to a pintle hitch mount or directly to a reinforced utility truck bumper. If you need a similar pintle hook with greater capacity, I recommend the Curt Bolt-On Pintle Hook, Item # C48215, that has a maximum weight capacity of 30,000-lbs...

  • Recommended Pintle Hitch and Lunette Ring for 2015 Ford F-750 with 23,800 lb Trailer
    For your 2015 Ford F750 boom truck, there is not a ball mount rated for that weight capacity. The largest capacity is 20K for a 2-1/2 inch hitch like # C45458 or 21K for a 3 inch hitch receiver like # C45430. We don't have a trailer hitch receiver rated that high either. It appears the truck does have the towing capacity to handle that trailer, but you will need to use a direct mount like the Curt Pintle Hook - Bolt On - 30,000 lbs # C48215. A pintle hook and lunette ring combination...

  • Recommended Pintle Mounting Plate for 3 Hitch on 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    You can use the Super Titan Forged Pintle Hook Plate for 3" Trailer Hitches - 25,000 lbs # RP38186 as the pintle hitch mount to fit in the 3" hitch receiver on your 2018 Ford F-350. This will give you a hitch mounted base to use a pintle hook like the Pintle Hook, Bolt-On, 30K # C48215 and you won't need to use hitch reducers any longer! I've linked some review videos of these parts for you to have a look at, as well.

  • Will Curt Pintle Hook C48215 Fit The B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate BMPMHD14005?
    Yes the Curt Pintle Hook # C48215 will bolt up perfectly to the B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate for 2" Hitches # BWPMHD14005 you were looking at. This will give you 6 different positions to mount the pintle hook so you can make sure your Military M1102 trailer is level when towing it with your 2014 Toyota 4Runner. There is no issue towing a trailer with a lunette ring on the interstate or country roads as the Pintle hook is not only stronger than a typical ball mount, but is also arguably...

  • Will Curt Lunette Ring C48560 Fit TorkLift Magnum Pintle Hook Mounting Plate # TLM9002
    I do have a great option for you, however the Curt Lunette Ring # C48560 that you referenced will not work with the TorkLift Magnum Pintle Hook Mounting Plate Adapter # TLM9002. I went out to our warehouse and measured a bolt pattern on the Magnum Mounting Plate of 3-3/8" horizontally (center to center) and 1-1/2" vertically (center to center). The Curt Lunette Ring features bolt hole spacing of 4-1/2", both horizontally and vertically. The Magnum Pintle Hook Mounting Plate # TLM9002...

  • Pintle Mounting Plate and Pintle Hook for 2013 Silverado 3500 Pulling 15K Trailer Load
    The pintle hook mounting plate I suggest for your 15K application is the B&W # BWPMHD14004 which is rated for 16,000-lbs. With this you can use a hook such as Curt # C48215 which has a rated GTW capacity of 30,000-lbs. For an installation kit you can use # 43076 from Hidden Hitch. Be sure to follow the torque specifications in the installation instructions.

  • Can B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate be Used in Rise Position
    Yes the B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate # BWPMHD14005 can absolutely be used in the rise position to raise the height of your pintle hook. This mounting plate fits 2" hitches, has a 15" shank and mounting holes that measure 3-3/8" apart on center horizontally and 1-3/4" apart on center vertically, which is the same pattern as the bolt holes on Pintle Hook # C48215. You will also need Pin and Clip # PC3 to secure it to your hitch.

  • Recommended Pintle Hitch for 15,000 lb Capacity
    I am not entirely sure what the measurements were you gave, but for a 16K rated pintle hitch, I recommend the B&W mount # BWPMHD14003 along with # 33710050.

  • Pintle Hook and Plate Mount Recommendation for Use with the Reese Super Titan # 38124
    The Super Titan Hitch # 38124 that you referenced has a 3 inch opening on it. For a 3 inch pintle hook plate with a 25k capacity you would want the # RP38186. And then for a hook with a 30k capacity that would bolt up to that plate you would want the # C48215.

  • Pintle Hook Mount Plate and Hook Recommendation with 20k Capacity for 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    For a pintle mounting plate with a 20k capacity that is designed to fit a 2-1/2 inch hitch we have the Buyers Products part # 337PM25812 as the Curt you mentioned only has an 18k capacity. Then for a hook to bolt onto this we have the part # C48215 which has a 30k capacity.

  • Pintle Hitches to Fit with a 3" Diameter Curt Lunette Ring
    We do carry a variety of pintle hitch options that are compatible with the 3" Diameter Curt Lunette Ring # C48530, you just need to choose the correct mounting style for your tow vehicle. Some of our options mount to a plate, like the part # C48215, while others install in a hitch receiver, like the part # BR27FR. If you can get me some more details on what you're needing for the tow vehicle side of things I'd be more than happy to help you choose the best option from our linked selection.

  • Will a Reese Pintle Hook Fit Curt Mount # C48323
    The hole spacing on the Curt pintle mount # C48323 is 3-5/16 inches on center side to side and 1-3/4 inches on center up and down. Pintle hook/ball combo # C48200 or regular pintle hook # C48215 have the same mounting pattern so they will work. If you already have a Reese pintle hitch then it would just need to have the same mounting pattern.

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15810 Weight Capacity Without Weight Distribution
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2-1/2" # C15810 is rated for a max towing weight of 20,000 lbs and a maximum tongue weight of 2,700 lbs whether you are using weight distribution or not. The only benefit to weight distribution with this hitch is a smoother ride and sway control if using a system that has that integrated. It is rare that the towing capacity with or without weight distribution is the same, but this is case on some of these really high capacity...

  • Solution for Adjustable Pintle Hook With 15" Rise
    A 15" rise is not something that is typically seen on a standard ball mount or pintle hitch for a 2" receiver. The closest thing we have is the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-525. This includes their pintle lock which allows it to work as a pintle hitch. However, it only has a maximum rise of 10". There is a 15" version which is the # 325-GH-327 but it can only be used in the drop position due to the leverage that would be applied in the rise position for something...
