Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45151 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C45151. This is Curt fusion ball mount for 2 inch hitches. It's going to offer a gross towing weight of 5,000 lb with a maximum tongue weight of 500 lb. The ball mount is going to have the permanently attached 1 7/8 inch ball that's going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion is going to be the portion that slides into the receiver tube of your hitch and then your hitch ball is going to provide a good connection point for your trailer's coupler. The neat thing about the fusion is that the hitch ball is actually welded to the ball mount platform so there's no need to torque it. It's going to be set and ready to go straight out of the box.

You can also see here that we do not have anything hanging below the ball platform so that's a nice smooth, steel surface at this portion right here. The neat think about the fusion is that it's going to prevent theft of the hitch ball. It's also going to eliminate the possibility of your hitch ball being able to loosen up. It's always going to be able to provide a nice, strong and secure towing setup. It's made from a sturdy steel construction. We're going to have a nice black powder coat finish on the actual ball mount with a chrome plated hitch ball. You can see right here that you are going to get a standard 5/8 inch pin and clip.

If you need a hitch pin and lock to lock this to your vehicle that's going to be sold separately. You can find that with part number 7683, but it does come with a hitch pin and clip to get it secured in your hitch. It is designed for 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. It's going to have a nice hollow shank here on the backside. Again, you're going to have a 1 7/8 inch hitch ball. A few measurements that I want to go over with you real quick.

The first one being the distance that we have from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of the hitch ball. That's going to give us a measurement of about 8 1/8 of an inch. The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the shank is going to measure about 2 1/5 inches. This can only be used in the drop position. I measured from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform.

It's going to give us a drop of 3 1/2 inches. You're going to notice here that on the Curt sticker, they put a 4 inch drop measurement on here. That's an approximate or an estimate or a rounded number, but the exact drop is going to be 3 1/2 inches. Again, that's from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform. Curt's also going to cover this with a limited lifetime warranty. I'm going to go ahead and show you how it installs inside your hitch. All you have to do is take the shank, slide it into the receiver tube until you get your pinholes to line up with one another and then you simply just insert the included hitch pin and clip. That's going to do it for our review of part number C45151. This is the Curt fusion ball mount for 2 inch hitches with a 5,000 lb gross towing weight capacity. .

Just received the hitch, receiver, and harness. All in excellent condition.
Hitch is now installed.
I'll have to do the harness Saturday, since the lights on my trailer don't work anyway, lol.

Thanks for all your help.

Well made hitch. Just the right drop for my Polaris Ranger and trailer.

Great product the only downside was it was out of stock when ordered and I was not notified at checkout. They did however have this item delivered within a two weeks so it did not create an issue for me.

Review from a similar Fusion in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I haul a 5.5x10 open trailer w/ a 900 lb. ZTR, a push mower, and a handful of other tools 3 days a week. It is what it is. It does the job, no problem.

A little finish wear and rust on the ball, but nothing major. I LIVE ON A DIRT ROAD, which is probably responsible for the wear.

Works just as well as it did then.

Review from a similar Fusion in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I am very happy with my trailer hitch receiver from etrailer. I installed one on my 2011 Toyota rav4 for towing a small teardrop trailer I made during the pandemic. I also purchased a wiring harness to power the trailer lights from etrailer and after some doing have it working well. The cost of doing it myself was a small fraction of having the dealership do the work. The hitch receiver is easy to install as there are pre drilled holes to receive bolts in the frame. The wiring is a bit more complicated but I did it. God bless online videos. I'm happy with the results.

Review from a similar Fusion in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Didn't realize the ball was permanently attached to the hitch, as I bought this with the intention of flipping it and using it as a rise hitch. 2" drop too low for my application. Not really worth the hassle of returning, and I guess the fault lies with me.

I wasn't aware that the ball was welded to the mount. I wouldn't have purchased it had I looked closer at the pictures before ordering. Otherwise nice curt product as usual.

Exactly as advertised! Good quality bitch ball. I need a couple of inches lift. My car sits a little low, for towing a trailer. I plan on buying a light kayak trailer. I have a 2019 VW Tiguan. This one looks like it will work perfectly.

This was the right set up for my 2018 4Runner. Works great. As a footnote, I now have a second vehicle for towing (2019 Tundra 4X4). Using the measuring process provided by etrailer folks, I found the same ball works great on the Tundra.
Thanks!

Great price, fast delivery. That's all I want, really. If I had to find a complaint it would be they used a big box for one pair of wiper blades. Wasteful, but not that big a deal. I have nice dogs, don't I? :)

This is the third time I have purchased from etrailer. I have installed the hitches myself each time. Their customer service is excelent. Always a knowledgable person on the phone. They have been helpful during install to answer any questions. I would highly recommend!

Review from a similar Fusion in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


The ball mount works great! Super easy to use, and works securely when towing a trailer. The rise was the right height I needed for towing. I've heard good things about etrailer's customer service, but they weren't very helpful for me. Twice my order wasn't going to be ready by the estimated delivery date. But the product itself is solid.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • How Close to Level Does Ball Mount Need To Place Trailer Ball
    When you calculate the ball mount rise or drop needed, in many cases it won't be possible to find a ball mount that puts you exactly level. As long as the ball mount places you within an inch or two of being level, you'll be fine. A 1/2 inch difference would certainly fall into the 'close enough' category. If you have the choice of being a bit higher or a bit lower than level, it's best to be higher than level if possible. In some cases, the trailer's tongue weight can cause the rear suspension...

  • Solution for Bouncing Trailer with Low Tongue Weight
    A weight distribution system wouldn't really help much in your situation. What you can do to help with the bounce is try moving weight up near the front of the trailer so that you can get the tongue weight of the trailer to be 10-15 percent of the total trailer weight. Getting the trailer as level as possible will also help. If your trailer is sitting nose high currently then that will also contribute to the bouncing. The part # C45154 is a 3 inch drop ball mount with a 2 inch hitch ball....

  • Curt Ball Mount with Drop Near 3-1/4 inch
    The closest we have is the Curt part # C45230 which has a drop of 3-5/8 inches or the # C45154 which has a 3-1/2 inch drop and a 2 inch ball or part # C45151 which has the same drop and a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball.

  • Ball Mount for EcoHitch of 2016 Subaru Crosstrek Towing Rental Trailer
    For a ball mount to use with your EcoHitch # 306-X7203 installed on our 2016 Subaru Crosstrek that would have it's hitch height at roughly 16-1/2 inches from the ground you'd need a rise of 8-1/2 inches roughly if the 25 inch dimension U-Haul gave you would give you a level trailer ride height. That does seem like a high figure but if that's what they gave you I'd assume it's best number to go off. So based on that you'd want a ball mount like the part # AMSC10. Then for a 2 inch ball...
