I was disappointed in this Curt-It was just oversized enough to keep it from slipping into my 2-inch hitch-it wasn't the paint-just wouldn't fit-to be fair it may have been the new extension used as it was a mess. I am giving it 5 stars because I think it is a fluke of some kind. The welds on this lets you know it is a quality product.

Hitch pin and clip missing from order. Shipping box broken and brake controller box damaged. Brake controller appears to be ok but I won’t know for sure until I have time to install it.

Got a new rig so I needed a 4'' drop instead of my 2'' drop ball mount. Great product but even a better transaction. Very fast shipping and packaging was safe and secure. This was shipped with 2 trailer tires. When the shipment came everything was in one package. This made me worry that shoddy packaging would have enabled the ball mount to bounce around and damage the tires or wheels. Not even close. The safe, secure, and attention to detail to the packaging was top notch. Would not hesitate to order again from etrailer.com

Great customer service Will! Provided info I needed to make sure product fit my 2014 4Runner (i.e., depth of shaft from back to center of hole, needed to be 3" or less...). They have all of that info! Good product for my use! Thanks Etrailer!

I ordered five things from e trailer trailer hitch, ball mount with ball, brake controller, wiring adaptor and 7 pin connector all pieces came in one box and all in great shape. Ordered it on the 13th about noon and showed up on the 17th around noon free shipping made this a easy decision. All I have to do is install it I have a newer truck so its all prewired just plug in and go. One last thing I like about e trailer is all the videos they have with vehicle specific install work they have done this a great reference tool.



- C45056
by:

As usual, the folks at eTrailer were great to work with. The order was correct and shipped on-time (actually early). However, there was a problem with the physical dimensions of the Curt ball mount: the specs stated that it was a 4 inch drop. ETrailer's website confirmed exactly how this measurement is made. However, when I measured it, I found that it was NOT 4 inches, but rather 3.25 inches. A couple of phone conversations with eTrailer yielded an explanation from the manufacturer that this dimension is not meant to be "exact". Well, 3/4 of an inch variance is definitely "not exact". So, I found the ball mount I needed elsewhere and arranged to return this one to eTrailer. Again, they were most accommodating.

Promptly shipped and order was accurate. Received item exactly 3 days from order.

I'm real happy with the trailer ball mount I just received today. It's heavier than it looks in the picture and that is a plus for me. It is going to handle everything I'll need and more. The 2" chrome ball and the pin with it are another plus making it a good buy. Steve K.

Bought this because my 2" drop hitch was too high. Works perfect and has the ball installed which is a nice plus. Super fast shipping. No complaints.

Great deal on the Curt Class III ball mount with 2" ball. etrailer.com was great to work with. Ordered Sunday and delivered Wednesday. I'll definitely use etrailer.com again!

Exactly what I expected. Fits right where it needs to on the Town & Country. Tight fit, solid material. Flip upside down to rise up behind the bumper. The ball is mounted good n tight, so a little extra oomph is needed to remove and move to the new topside.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount



  • Can Curt Class III Ball Mount # C45056 Be Used in Rise Position
    I spoke with my contact at Curt regarding the Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2 Inch Ball # C45056 referenced in your question. He did state that the ball mount can be used in the rise position, which will indeed provide a 2 inch rise. The issue with this particular model is that the hitch ball will come already torqued from the factory. You can actually remove the ball so you can flip it over to use in the rise position. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that...

  • Ball Mount for Trailer that Sits 4-1/2 Inches Under Hitch
    Your best solution is going to be getting a ball mount with a 4 inch drop like # C45056. Unfortunately, we don't have one with a 4-1/2 inch and all of them with a 5 inch drop will not fit a Class III trailer hitch receiver. In reality the 1/2 inch of difference you'll have won't make a large impact. You just want the trailer to be as level as you can get it.

  • Recommended Drop or Rise Tolerance
    Good Question! It is okay to have a little plus or minus you just don't want the tongue pointed too far either way. In your case I would use the 2" since we know it will have the trailer sitting dead level which is optimal. The Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball - 4" Drop - 2" Rise - 7,500 lbs part # C45056 will be perfect. This helps to ensure that the trailer pushes and pulls flat on the truck rather than pushing up or pulling down when braking.

  • Length From Pin Hole to Ball on Curt Class III Ball Mount C45056

  • Recommended 2" Rise Ball Mount For 2018 Subaru Forester W/ Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver 76182
    Since your trailer coupler is 1-1/4" higher than the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76182 on your 2018 Subaru Forester I recommend going with a 2" rise ball mount like the Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball - 4" Drop - 2" Rise - 7,500 lbs # C45056 which comes with a 2" hitch ball and hitch pin and clip. Since the rear of your Subaru will likely sag a bit with the trailer connected, adding the extra 3/4" will be better to make the trailer level when it is hitched. I included a...
