Video Transcript for Review of CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Fixed Ball Mount - C52JR

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this CURT heavy duty forged ball mount. Now, this is going to slide right into your three 3 inch by 3 inch trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle. Then it's gonna provide this 2-5/16 inch diameter hitch ball to connect to the coupler on your trailer so that you can tow your trailer. This pitch ball does come torqued to the factory specifications. So, you're not gonna have to worry about installing it yourself.

It's gonna have a nice and solid connection there for your trailer. This is going to provide a 4-inch drop for your trailers that sit 4 inches lower than your ball mount or your receiver tube on your hitch. So, if you do have it for a trailer that sits a little bit lower, this is going to accommodate that. So, it's gonna allow the trailer to ride nice and level as you're going down the road. So, this is a solid one piece forged steel construction.

So, it is going to give us a gross towing weight of 20,000 pounds, that of course is the weight of the trailer plus the load included. It's going to give us a tongue weight or downward pressure on your hitch ball of 2000 pounds. So, it will be great for towing those heavy loads. As you can see this does have a carbide, black powder coat finish to it. So, that's going to provide corrosion resistance and make sure that it holds up well for us.

The ball has a chrome plating that is gonna provide corrosion resistance as well. This comes with a limited lifetime warranty on the ball mount itself, not on the ball. So, if you we're to have any problems, you're more than welcome to reach out to us, here at etrailer.com. One thing that's not included is going to be your pin and clip. You probably already have one for your hitch, but if not, this is just your standard 5-8th inch diameter hole.

So, you'll just need a standard 5-8th inch diameter pin and clip. We do have lots of options available here at etrailer.com We also have locking pins available. So, if you wanted to add a little extra security, make sure that people aren't gonna be able to come along and pick off with your ball mount when you're not around, we have those available as well. Now, I will say that this is a static mount, so, it's only going to provide that 4-inch drop for you. So, that's gonna work great if you are only planning on ever towing that one trailer that sits 4 inches lower. We do have adjustable ball mounts that will accommodate several different trailer heights. So, if you're gonna be towing multiple trailers that don't all have the same height, I would probably go with that route. But if you are just gonna be towing the one trailer, I think this will work great for you. So, that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

Review from a similar Forged Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Joshua K, the Customer Service Rep with whom I called in and spoke with gets a bazillion stars. The online description doesn’t include if it is qualified to give rise or not.

Josh checked through the product description and figured I could remove the ball, invert it (and recalibrate) and get 5“ of rise. Josh assured me after checking my zipcode that even when selecting free shipping I would have it by the weekend. I ordered on Tuesday morning and it arrived Thursday - 2 days later!

I unpacked the box and was pleased to read that it is qualified for 5“ rise. Very assuring since I wasn’t sure and trailering can be stressful as is.

I really appreciate Joshua K’s customer service. Thanks for making this an efficient and pleasant experience!

Heavy duty and ball mounted saves me the hassle. The new F350’s are taller and had to make adjustments for the cargo trailer and 5th wheel. I can count on etrailer to have what I need.

Review from a similar Forged Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Exactly what you would expect. A massive chuck of metal for use in a 3 inch receiver without hte need for reducers and the issue and rattling they can cause. Sure, and adjustable may be more versatile if you have multiple trailers of different heights, but they are 3 times the cost, or more.

I already have one for my camper ball and needed another for my other trailers so I wouldn’t have to switch’s balls on the mount all the time….. now I just pull the pin and swap out the whole thing

Perfect, just what I want for heavy duty. Fast delivery at a very good price.
having the ball installed from etrailer is the way to go. Need to pack the box with some stuffing so the weight doesn't move around in shipping.

Review from a similar Forged Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I tried twice to get this hitch and ball from [online vendor]. Twice the shipment was lost and I had to get a refund. Shipment from etrailer is right the first time and arrived quickly. Plus, since the ball is already torqued on the ball mount, I don't need to by a large socket.

Review from a similar Forged Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I t looks like an excellent product but I will have to return it (no fault of yours) because it is not the right hitch for my trailer and I have no other use for it. The person who sold me the trailer gave me the equipment that works for it so I am returning your product.

Review from a similar Forged Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Arrived sooner than expected. A very sturdy hitch with pin. I especially appreciate having the rounded edges where we frequently walk at the back of the SUV. 4" drop is correct to match my truck and trailer hitch height on my Subaru Ascent.

Review from a similar Forged Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I was looking for a heavy duty ball mount for use in pulling my bumper pull cattle trailer. The mount kit I found on your website was just what I wanted, in stock and the price was reasonable. It fit my truck and the height was perfect.

Review from a similar Forged Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


We’ve already installed it and hitched up the horse trailer. Works great for my needs. Half the weight of the much heavier weight distribution system we had been using (and will continue to use for Interstate travel). Hook up was fast and easy.
