Video Transcript for Curt Bolt On SecureLatch Pintle Hook Review

What's up everybody it's AJ with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna be checking out the secure latch from Curt. It's gonna be a pencil hook that attaches to this bracket here, allowing you to hook up to lunette rings on your heavy duty or trailers. Now it hooks up to lunette rings up to two and a half to three inches in inside diameter. Let's check it out. There's a few different ways you can get this set up.

You get the pencil hook by itself. Then you'd have to get the backing plate separate with the shank that fits two and a half inch hitches. Or you can get the two inch hitch version, but you're not gonna have the backing plate. It's gonna be just attached to the shank up there. Kind of like your standard ball mount.

But we're gonna be focused on this one today. So let's talk about weight capacity. This has a weight capacity of 24,000 pounds and has a vertical load limit of 4,800 pounds. So just keep that in mind when you're hooking up to your trailer and hauling your stuff. We're gonna pop this pin out here.

That's gonna release that so when you drop the lunette ring down, it's gonna go past that and lock it in down here. So right now we're just gonna back the trailer up and let the lunette ring hit here. And then we can lower our trailer. With the lunette ring touching this part here, we know it's completely lined up. I can go ahead and lower the trailer into place.

Now if your latches and arm hasn't come into place, you can just push with your finger like that. And now it's in a position, it can't pop back up. It's not gonna cause any issues. We can replace that pin right back where we started. Another nice thing that's included is the safety chain loops here. You can just take your extra chain and put them on those hooks. That way they're up and off the ground. Now on hooking it, it's just as easy. We're gonna pop that same pin out, and what we're gonna do differently this time, is just flip this latch out. Now when it gets pushed up, it'll push up and out of place. 'Cause right here, it's not moving. I showed you that earlier. It won't pop out. Just fold it out like that, and now we can raise the trailer back up. The main portion is constructed out of a cast iron. So you don't have to worry about it not holding up when you go to use it. Also, all the bolts and moving parts here are gonna be zinc coated. So that's also gonna hold up to rust and corrosion outside. You don't have to worry about the elements getting to it at all. The plates gonna give you nine and a half inches of adjustability. So you can go all the way to the top, all the way to the bottom. It's a nice feature 'cause sometimes they're an inch increments of like wholes. So you kind of sometimes might need to be in between one of those holes. You just don't have a chance. This one's all open. So you can really set it wherever you need it to be for your trailer. Overall, it works really well. I like how the lunette rings sits down in this groove and this goes over the top of it keeping it from popping back up on you. I really like the design. The only thing I would say maybe is if you have a couple different trailers, and you want to switch out to a just a ball mount, there is a combination one that comes with a ball mount and a pencil hook. I'd recommend that one. That way you don't have to switch out the ball mount all the time when you're using different trailers. I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out. I hope this helped..

I would rate customer service at 5, products at 4 only because I haven't installed them yet and shipping at 1 because electric brake controller was boxed with jack and hitch both heavy items and box was ripped open from shipping which is not your fault but controller was pinched between jack and hitch.

Pintle hook started to show rust after one wash of my truck. Not very pleased with that. Everything does work properly so we will see how it works out as time goes on


Comments
It is important to remove all aftermarket accessories before going through a car wash or if not towing. This item requires maintenance to ensure it will not rust. Here is a help article with tips:

Great customer service. Item was back ordered for a few months. During this time my address changed. Called customer service and the address change was handled, a few days later got an email that the item had shipped 2 days later it was on my front porch. Can’t ask for better service.

I really like it, I can use it on both of my trailers. I have a dump truck and use it to pull my trailers with a tractor loaded on them with a 2 5/16 ball and my other trailer with a pintle hook.

Review from a similar SecureLatch w/ Mount and Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I bought a government surplus M1102 trailer but I did not have the proper hitch on my truck and my truck's hitch attach point was nearly a foot below the trailer's hitch to boot. I found the etrailer website and purchased both a pintle hitch and large mounting plate. I received the products quickly and I attached them to the truck today. They are prefect and work beautifully. The quality and craftsmanship are everything anyone could expect (perfect). Aside from having truly quality products, etrailer sent me a confirmation email with a link that gave me a pictorial view of exactly where my products were as they were in transit to me. I give etrailer dot com 5 stars only because I cannot give them 10! (serious). Etrailer will absolutely be the first place I go when ordering more products of this nature. Thanks etrailer! Bob B.

It’s been a year and I’ve used my Etrailer hitch extensively. It works like a champ. It’s heavy-duty and the craftsmanship is great. I’ve had no problems with it and expect to have none in the future. I have perfect confidence in it.

This was our second order with this company and the product quality is great and the turn around time was within a week. Very easy to use website and when we needed assistance from a customer service rep (several times) all of them were very knowledge on helping us select the correct hitches for our vehicles. I would recommend them with a big plus.

Review from a similar SecureLatch w/ Mount and Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I was having a difficult time hooking up to my dump trailer that had a 2 5/16 ball mount. I switched the ball to a Pintle and what a difference. I can hook on to the Pintle with this hitch the first time every time. I was a little concerned about “slop” that everyone told me would have with a Pintle. Maybe it happens with other Pintle hitches but not with this one. With the cupped design it pulls just like a ball mount. 1. Easy hook up (no more dented bumpers) 2. No slop 3. Adjustable 4. Piece of mind when I overload my dump trailer. Went from 10,000lb ball hitch to 24,000lb Pintle and still have a 2inch ball for my boat. Listen I’m cheap, I did not want to spend the money on this I’m glad I bought it. Worth every penny.

Review from a similar SecureLatch w/ Mount and Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I ordered this pintle hitch and it arrived as advertised. It was missing a few bolts nuts and lock washers. I called etrailer and spoke with George J. I explained to George what had happened and what was missing. It took George a minute maybe two minutes and he advised me the missing bolts would be shipped either today or tomorrow and no charge to me. I must say it was a pleasure dealing with George J and etrailer. George was polite, friendly and handled my issue extremely quick. I would highly recommend that anyone buying equipment consider buying from etrailer. Their prices are good and to call their customer service excellent is an understatement. I am very pleased with the outcome. Thank you George J and etrailer for an excellent shopping experience.

Product was shipped very fast and everything arrived as expected. I'm happy with the product. The best part about this transaction was the customer service.

It was so nice being able to connect directly with a person that was knowledgeable about the product and spoke clear English. Keep up the good work!

The hitch was exactly what I was looking for and it halted right up to my truck. the trailer connecter fit the existing hole and I'll wire that this weekend. the lights are for my backhoe. The people were great to work with and it arrived earlier than I expected. Now I have a wish list to work on. I would recommend etrailer.com to anyone who needs their products. Thanks Captcarl.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount



  • What is the Quietest Pintle Hook and Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch
    It doesn't sound silly at all, and there is an option for the quietest pintle hook and mount, the Curt Secure Latch. The reason it is considered quieter is because it has a slight cup on the hook (see accompanying photo) which helps the hook ensure tighter security on a lunette ring than any other pintle hook. That, along with its auto-latch when the ring is in the hook, are what separates this from other hooks in terms of noise. Will it be totally silent? No. But it will reduce the amount...
