Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45250 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C45250. This is a Curt ball mount for 2 inch hitches, rated at 7500 pounds. This ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion is going to slide into the trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle. The ball platform is going to provide a good mounting location for your hitch ball. Hitch balls are sold separately. If you don't have one, you should check out some options here on our website. You can use this mount in either the drop or rise positions.

It's going to be made from a sturdy steel construction. You can see here that that shank is completely hollow. You can see all the way through there. It's going to have a nice, corrosion resistant, high gloss, black, powder-coat finish. Once you have this inside your hitch, you're going to need to secure it right here with the hitch pin and clip or hitch pin and lock. Those items are sold separately.

You can find them here with part number C21500. It's going to be your standard 5/8 inch pin that comes with the clip. Or for your pin and lock, you can use part number 7683. Curt makes this mount in the USA. It's designed for 2 inch x 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. It's going to offer a gross towing weight of 7500 pounds with a maximum towing weight of 750 pounds. A few measurements to go over with you real quick.

Measuring from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole, that's going to give us a measurement of 12-1/4 of an inch. The overall length, measuring from edge to edge measures about 16-5/8 of an inch. With it installed in this position, measuring from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform, this is going to be the rise that it offers. It's going to offer a rise of 3/4 of an inch, which is also going to be the drawbar thickness. If you have it installed in the drop position, just like this, measuring from top of the shank to the top of the ball platform, it's going to give you a drop of 2 inches. The ball hole diameter on this mount is going to give us a diameter of 1 inch. When using the hitch ball, you want to make sure the shank of the hitch ball is the same as the ball hole diameter right here. Curt is going to cover this with a limited lifetime warranty.

Real quick, I just want to show you how easily it installs. I'm just going to take it, slide it into the receiver tube of our hitch, until we get our pin holes to line up with one another. Then we'll secure it using our 5/8 inch pin and clip on the other side. That's going to do it for our review of part number C45250. This is the Curt ball mount for 2 inch hitches. .

Great product ball mount hitch! Fair price! Fair shipping cost! Nice helpful person to work with!



by:

Always great products and great pricing. Not to mention super fast delivery.



by:

it could have been packed better. it was almost out of the box



by:

I needed to replace a hitch drawbar that had a 3" drop to level my off road trailer during towing so I chose this one from etrailer, and as with every other time that I have ordered from etrailer the product quality and ease of ordering was excellent. I have been ordering products from etrailer for several years and I have never had an issue with the quality of their products or the ordering process.



by:

well pleased with hitch bar. etrailer had more selection than anyone else.



by:

This longer draw bar has eliminated car to trailer interference I used to get when making sharp turns with my two kayaks on a short trailer.

Review from a similar Curt Steel Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I have two of these. My first I bought two years ago. I very highly recommend this Curt Class III Ballmount 2" Drop because of its price, durability and quality. I towed various class 3 loads with ease and confidence with this ballmount. It slides into the hitch and does its job without fail. It looks excellent after towing a load.

etrailer's price is about as good as it gets and delivery is very speedy.


Comments
The Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2 Ball - 2 - 7,500 lbs is a very high quality, very heavy duty piece of towing equipment. I highly recommend it for anyone, professional or home user, for mid-level towing jobs.

Review from a similar Curt Steel Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Not easy to find a 16k lb load rated Class IV rated ball mount for 2" hitches. Was happy to find it. My hitch is only rated to 11k lbs, but opted for this one for peace of mind. Shank and ball mount is solid steel (not bent)l. Functional load rating is printed on a sticker (not etched on the shank). Was a bit bummed about that, but for the price, thought it was worth it. Upon receipt, black paint had chipped off in some areas and required a touch-up. Made in China. If you get one of these, you will also need to buy some kind of hitch clamp/shim.


Comments
When it comes to shipping hitches and some ball mounts, it is very common for them to arrive with scratches. We recommend using a rust-oleum type paint to cover the scratchesspots. This will prevent any corrosion in the future. I have a link attached for your reference. I have also sent this over to customer service for them to reach out to you.

Review from a similar Curt Steel Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This was a real saver for me. I traded up to a taller vehicle and my old ball mount was not long enough to tow the trailer horizontally. The new ball mount and ball solved the problem

Works wonderfully. Keeps the trailer perfectly horizontal behind my Yukon.

Review from a similar Curt Steel Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This hitch receiver was extremely high quality and easy to install as advertised. The wiring kit was also easy enough to plug in to my existing wiring harness. This is my second hitch receiver purchased from etrailer and I'm very satisfied!

Review from a similar Curt Steel Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This was the perfect hitch length for my F-150 allowing me to open tailgate all the way down without having to unhitch trailer. Wouldn’t watch to go any longer though.


Comments
Works great but now I’m changing over to iron jaws for safety reasons. I do not believe it will allow my tailgate down all the way but it’s more safe

Review from a similar Curt Steel Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I purchased this hitch to pull my utility trailer with. It was easy to order, arrived on time, and simple to install/use. This hitch is built very well and strong, and has a good coating finish on it. Great product!

Trailer hitch has performed very well, no issues with it. Happy with the purchase.

Box had a hole in it where hitch ball came through. Other than a couple of scratches there was no damage. Maybe how you ship might need to change. Thanks

Review from a similar Curt Steel Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This thing looks hollow in these pictures but I assure you it is solid metal through and through . Very heavy piece and I now realize I made the right choice. The one thing I didn't like about it is the fact you can't find a ball with the correct size shaft to fit the hole precisely , so the one you have to use makes the lock washer sit at a canter in the hole above the nut, its a good thing my shaft has a cotter pin..


Comments
Still satisfied with my purchase, ive had no problems with it. I have not had any issues with it coming loose. The best part about it is not having to pull the receiver out every time I have to change trailer ball sizes.

Bulletproof chunk of steel. Excellent quality and the finish is holding up well in the saltwater environment where it is used.

Review from a similar Curt Steel Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


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.

  • Width of the Ball Mount Platform of the Curt Ball Mount # C45250
    I spoke with my contact at Curt and he informed me that the ball mount part # C45250 that you referenced has a ball mount platform width of 2-1/2 inches.

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Jack Upgrade for a 2022 Gulf Stream Ameri-Lite 189
    The 2022 Gulf Stream Ameri-Lite 189 will accept pretty much any standard electric a-frame trailer jack. I recommend the Electric Trailer Jack part # 3370093500 as it will simply plug into the vehicle trailer connector and pull power from the battery. Therefore, you don't have to do any additional wiring so un-bolt the old jack and install the new with same hardware.

  • Differences Between Curt Ball Mounts # C45250 and # D-26
    The two ball mounts from Curt # C45250 and # D-26 also known as 45260 are very similar but there is a small difference along with the different style you noticed. The # D-26 has a center of hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole length of 12-5/8 inches while the # C45250 has 12-1/4 inches. That 3/8 distance might allow for better bumper clearance for a particular vehicle. Both are Class III ball mounts, both will fit 2 inches hitches, they both have the same weight capacity and...

  • Shock Absorbing Ball Mount/Trailer Ball Recommendation for Pop Up Camper
    Curt offers a solution that would provide additional shock absorption to help isolate the tow vehicle from the shock the trailer experiences on bumpy roads, while still allowing you to use your existing # C45250 ball mount. The Curt # C40047 RockerBall is a 2 inch trailer ball with a 1 inch diameter shank that would be fully compatible with your existing ball mount. The ball has a 7500 lb capacity, so it'll work great with your pop up camper.

  • How to Gain More Height Clearance for Towing a Trailer and Using the Swagman Trailhead
    The multipurpose ball mounts like your Curt # D210 are pretty unique and while I do have a solution for you, the other options like high-low adapters aren't meant for towing. The best (and only) solution for you to use a Gen-Y Hitch like part # 325-GH-314, flip it upside down, and use a ball mount with a 2" drop like part # C45250. This gives you the same height for your ball mount but then it has stacked receivers for a max difference of about 7-1/2" to mount your Swagman Trailhead # S63381..
