Video Transcript for Curt Pintle Hitch - Pintle Hook - Standard - C48010 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C48010. This is the Curt pintle hook for 2 1/2 inch hitches. The pintle hook is going to allow you to hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. This portion right here is the portion that slides into your vehicle's trailer hitch. Then this area right here is going to provide the attachment point for your lunette ring coupler. The unit's made from a strong forged steel construction. It's very strong and durable.

It's going to feature a corrosion resistant high-gloss black powder coat finish, which is going to protect it from rust and corrosion. Here on the top we have the safety pin that's going to keep the top of the coupler area in a closed position, or the pintle hook in a closed position. Then we can open that up, lift up on the T-handle, and then pull back on the top piece to open it up. You can reinstall the pin to keep it in that position as well. In this position you'd be able to hook up your lunette ring to the pintle hook, and then drop this back over. Then reinstall the safety pin. Now, it is tethered to the actual mount, down here at this point here.

You don't have to worry about misplacing that or losing it. Once you have your connection made, simply reinstall that and secure it right there on the other side. To get it secured inside your hitch, it does require a hitch pin and clip, or a hitch lock. Those items are sold separately. If you don't already have one, they can be found right here on our website. The unit is designed for 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch receivers.

It's going to fit lunette ring couplers with a minimum inner diameter of 2 1/2 inches. The units going to feature a gross towing weight capacity of 20,000 pounds. We're going to go over a few measurements real quick, starting with the overall length. Measuring from edge to edge, that's going to give us a measurement of about 14 3/4 of an inch. Measuring from the back of the shank to the center of the hitch pin hole, that's going to give us a measurement of about 2 3/4 of an inch. Then from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the pintle hook area, that looks to measure about 9 1/2 inches. That's going to do it for today's look at part number C48010..

etrailer was great. I had a shipment that was very important. UPS messed up the tracking. etrailer was great with explaining their experience with UPS. It worked out just like they thought it would. They offered to refund my purchase if it did not show up in time. All worked out great. Thanks etrailer. P. S. Not to mention they saved me some money on top of it!! 596444

Well built hitch. Should last a lifetime. Good height for 4X4 trucks but might be a bit low for 2 wheel drive. 332360

Great product, fits great in the newer 2.5 inch receivers. The trailer doesn't move around as much as a ball pintle. 294459

High quality for a great price. Hard to find 2.5" receiver pintle hitch for my new Dodge Ram 2500. Very heavy duty, will liky outlast the truck. This company is one of the best I have ever dealt with. The only complaint I ever had was a request for better packaging even though nothing was ever damaged. Later orders have had improved packaging. 284750

Works great for lunette trailer and tow straps

Ask the Experts about this Curt Pintle Hitch

  • Recommended Pintle Hook Hitch for 2-1/2 Inch Receiver on 2017 Ford F-250 4WD
    The Curt Pintle Hook for 2-1/2" Hitches - 20,000 lbs # C48010 will work for the Class V receiver but if you normally have a decent drop, you will want to still have a drop. The typical trailer coupler height of 17 inches from the ground to the bottom of the coupler is similar when using a lunette ring and a pintle hitch. My recommendation for your application is the Buyers Products 3 Position Pintle Hook Mount for 2-1/2" Receiver - 20K # 337PM25812 along with the Buyers Products 15...

  • Pintle Hook for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch with a Long Shank
    If you are just looking for a standard pintle hook without a ball then I think the Curt Pintle Hook part # C48010 will be the best option we have for you. This pintle hook has a 2-1/2" shank and measures 9-1/2" from the center of hitch pin hole to the center of pintle hook. It has a 20,000 lb towing capacity. If you need something with a longer shank then you will need to look into a two piece unit like the Curt Pintle Hook Mounting Plate part # C48340 with the Curt Pintle Hook part...

  • Pintle Hook Compatible With 3 Inch Lunette Ring And 2011 Chevy 2500 HD Trailer Hitch Receiver
    If you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver opening, the Curt Pintle Hook for 2-1/2" Hitches - 20,000 lbs # C48010 will fit. If you have a 2 inch receiver opening, you will want the Curt Pintle Hook for 2" Hitches - 20,000 lbs, # C48004. Either will work with a 3 inch lunette ring.

  • Pintle Hook Recommendation with 20k Capacity
    Sounds like you are looking for a pintle hook style ball mount to tow your trailer that weighs right at 19,500 lbs when fully loaded. The part # C48004 will fit a 2 inch hitch and has a 20k capacity and the # C48010 will fit a 2-1/2 inch hitch and also has a 20k capacity. Either should work well but you will need to measure the size of the hitch opening on your truck to determine which you would need.

  • 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...
