Video Transcript for Review of CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Heavy Duty Forged 6" Drop Mount 2-5/16" Ball - C53JR

Hi everybody, Andy here with And today we're gonna take a look at this CURT heavy duty forged, six-inch drop ball mount with a two and 5/16 inch ball. Now, this forged ball Mount includes a two and 5/16 inch in diameter, Chrome plated Pretor hitch ball that's going to fit a two inch square trailer hitch receiver. And this ball Mount provides again, a six inch drop from the top of the inside of your hitch opening. And it is a solid one piece forged steel construction. It has a gross towing weight of 15,000 pounds, but do remember that a towing setup is always limited by its lowest rated component.

Whether that be your vehicle, your hitch or another component. It features a corrosion resistant carbide black powder coat finish. So I think this is going to hold up very nicely. The finish doesn't seem to flake off real easy. So that's gonna provide resistance to rust and corrosion.

The hitch pinhole diameter is 5/8 of an inch. And the distance from the center of the ball to the center of the hitch pinhole is gonna be about nine and 1/2 inches. Now the pin and clip is not included. That would be a separate purchase, but I would recommend securing your investment with the etrailer stainless steel trailer hitch receiver lock for two inch pitches. And you can find that hitch receiver lock on our website using item number E98882.

And that'll be a great way to secure your investment and to your trailer hitch receiver on the back of your vehicle. The ball mount itself does have a limited lifetime warranty. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy.

Thank you for joining me..

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.



Works fine. Followed how to measure the to even out the trailer and all is good. It’s a beast!


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!


Does exactly what should. No issues, solid well made perfect.


Exactly as advertised and actually got delivered a day early


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.


very nice, solid build


Great customer service and great products! Earned a new new costumer for a very long time. Was user impressed with their prices, selection, and willingness to help me


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.


Very solid and heavy duty ball mount. Added benefit of being able to buy the ball already secured to the mount. Could not find the 6” drop mount, especially for 2.5” receivers, at local stores. etrailer has it all and ships fast!


Awesome heavy duty ball mount. Used it about 15 times before it was stolen off the back of my truck. Indestructible and great value for the $$.


For years ive had the 2 inch version and it has been the best hitch ive ever used. My new truck came with a 2 1/2 receiver so i upgraded instead of using the adapter and i am pleased so far. Exactly what i had expected, great product.


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.


Awesome company and so easy to work with. Fast and polite and knew exactly what I need to get.


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.


Everything, when I need something for my truck I always turn to etrailer. They make it so easy to get the product you are looking for. The quality of their product and the Customer service are the BEST! Thank you.


Well packaged, arrived promptly, and exactly as described. Solid ball mount that I’m confident will last longer than my truck.


One solid piece of steel. Works and looks great. I’ve had several people ask me the brand and where it came come.


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 truly appreciate the quick turn around time of my order, in addition to the professional/nice email that was sent to me...this goes a long ways! Thank you!


Works great for our camper and dump trailer. Super heavy duty!


Seems like a quality product. Fits a 2.5in receiver better than using a sleeve and 2in shank


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


This product would be excellent if they would have made the drop 1/2 inch more It lets me drop my step tailgate down on my 2023 GMC Sierra 3500 but if I put weight on the step it hits the ball


Hitch is great


Arrived on time and ball hitch was as advertised. All good!
