This product is pretty much straight forward. I received it quickly, and the quality is excellent! The welds are clean and continuous. I needed it as a rise to increase the launch ability, of my boat, without going to far out of level. It will serve me well. Curt products have been great for me.

looks like a good product and will fill my needs. Packaging and shipping could be improved. This is a steel unit and not enough shock absorbency was allow for. When package arrived hitch had poked through the side of the box. You need heavier boxes or more stabilizing packing when shipping these heavy products.

Excellent Ball Mount For 2020 Ford Ranger. Fast Shipping



- C45100
by:

The only thing keeping this from 5 stars is the lack of a ball flange nut indentation on both sides. I used this mount upside down to get my ball out and away from the bumper on my car. I had to use a pipe wrench on the ball flange to hold it while I tightened the nut on the other side. As you can imaging the wrench gouged the ball flange and the ball mount. This would not have happened if the ball mount had an inset for holding the hex flange of the ball. I could have just used a wrench on the nut and not had to hold the ball stationary while doing so. Improve this product please. No one likes gouges on their ball flange or ball mount.

It.s too big for the receiver! It measures 2.030" and won't go in. I'm hoping to be able to grind off enough with my belt sander to make it work. If not it'll end up in the trash.


Comments
If your receiver tube is outside of the small end of tolerance, it could cause fit problems. It is acceptable to remove the finish of the ball mount via sanding, but using a grinder on it is not recommended as the heat build-up could have a negative effect on the composition of the steel the ballmount is constructed of.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Can Curt Ball Mount C45100 be Safely Used to Tow 3,500 lb Trailer is Rise Position
    Great question, and I think you're on the right track. Even though the Curt Ball Mount # C45100 is rated for 3,500 lbs towing/350 lbs tongue while in the rise position, I like to have some kind of safety margin so that I'm not constantly checking to make sure the ball mount is holding up. For your application I recommend the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount # MT70068 because the weight ratings are 5,000 lbs towing/500 lbs tongue whether you are using it in the rise or drop position....

  • Can Hitch or Ball Mount Be Drilled for Additional Hitch Pin Hole
    Ball mounts like the Curt # C45100 are available in various lengths. This one happens to be 13-inches long, longer than some. Longer ball mounts are needed, for example, in cases of a truck having a slide in camper in the bed, or when using a towing-style bike rack. You do not want to drill your hitch or your ball mount as this will void the product warranty. A slightly longer ball mount poses no issues for your towing application.

  • Recommendation On A Ball Mount That Can Fix Unlevel Towing
    Determining the proper rise and drop needed for a ball mount can be done with two measurements and a little math. On a level surface, first measure from the top edge of your receiver opening to the ground to get your hitch height. Then, measure from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground to get the trailer hitch height. The difference between these two numbers will be the amount of rise and drop you will need for your vehicle and trailer. I have linked help article that explains...

  • What is the Actual Drop of the Curt Ball Mount C45100
    We recently went and measured the Curt ball mount part # C45100 and the drop is 7-1/2 inches and rise is 6-1/4 inches. If you check out the review video I attached you can see our demo guy measure the drop at the 1:47 mark.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 7 inches of Drop
    For a 7 inch drop ball mount the closest and best option will be the part # C45100. This is a 7-1/2 inch drop that would get you close enough to level to have the trailer towed safely. It's better to be a tiny bit to nose-down than nose-up as it's commonly the nose-up situations that cause sway. For a 2 inch ball you would need part # 63845 or for a 2-5/16 inch ball the part # 63847.

  • 6 inch Rise Ball Mount Recommendation with Ball Hole Diameter of 1 inch

  • How to Pick Out the Correct Rise Drop Ball Mount to Tow a Trailer Level
    I got all of the pictures you submitted and attached them to this page. However, I am still a little unsure of what you are looking for. The best recommendation I can make for you would be to check out the link I attached that details how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount you need to tow your trailer level. It's kind of hard to tell, but it looks like your current ball mount is a 7 inch drop ball mount which would be similar to the # C45100.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 6 inches of Rise to Tow Trailer Level
    Using a 6 inch rise ball mount does not cause any safety issues. If anything using the correct rise ball mount allows you to prevent the biggest safety issue which is towing an unlevel trailer. The Curt ball mount part # C45100 would work well for you as it has a 6-1/4 inch rise. For a 2 inch ball we have the part # 63845 and then for a 2-5/16 inch ball we have the part # 63847.

The only other option would be an adjustable ball mount such as the MaxxTow Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # MT70197 which has a 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" hitch ball and is capable of 5-3/4" rise or drop.

  • Does Tongue Weight Sag Get Factored In When Picking Out Rise/Drop Ball Mount
    This is a really great question! So ideally you have the trailer sitting as level as possible when you are towing. So that means that if your vehicle suspension is going to sag with the tongue weight of your trailer on the ball mount you'd want to compensate for that with the amount of rise/drop ball mount you select. How this normally works out is that you determine the drop needed (in your case 8 inches) and then go with a ball mount slightly higher like the Curt part # C45100 which...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit Recommendation for 2020 Chevy Equinox
    We do indeed have trailer hitches available for the 2020 Chevy Equinox. If your Equinox is not a Diesel model, I'd recommend the Curt Class III hitch part # C77FR. If it IS a Diesel, you'd want to use the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 76217. If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll also need a trailer wiring harness like # 118759 if your vehicle is a Premier model, # 118750 if it isn't a Premier, and if it has the factory tow package, you'd use # 118285 which includes the relays needed...

  • Distance From Ground To Curt Hitch C13382 On a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
    In regards to the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13382 which is a fit for a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, the distance from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube opening is 15". Therefore, if the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler (while level) is 21" then you need a ball mount with a 6" rise. The Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches part # C45100 will work for this but you also need a Pin/Clip part # C21500 and Hitch Ball part # 40038.

    Passenger vans like the Honda Odyssey do sit fairly low to start with, and once you bolt on a hitch receiver and load some passengers and cargo, the bottom of that hitch tube can be pretty close to the ground. When we installed Draw-Tite hitch # 75270 on your vehicle we found that the hitch pin hole was 6-inches forward of the rear edge of the bumper cover. We also noted that the top of the receiver tube opening was 11-1/2-inches above ground level. This means the bottom on the hitch...

When we installed this hitch on a 2019 Tiguan, we found that the top inside edge of the receiver tube sat 11-1/2 inches high. U-Haul trailer couplers sit at about 18 inches above the pavement when the trailer is level. To bring the trailer ball within an inch or two of level, I'd recommend going with a ball mount that has a 6 inch rise like the Curt # C45100. You'll also need a # PC3 hitch pin. U-Haul...

If your Highlander has a 2 inch trailer hitch or if you added one such as # e98844 you could then use a load extender such as the Yakima LongArm # Y01149 or MaxxTow extender # MT70231.

    When the EcoHitch # 306-X7275 is installed on a 2017 BMW X3, the inside top of the receiver tube will sit about 11 inches from the ground. To determine which ball mount you need, you'll need to use the jack to raise your trailer tongue until it's level, then measure the distance from the bottom edge of the coupler to the ground. Subtract 11 inches from that height, and you'll get a good approximation of the rise of the ball mount you'll need. The average trailer coupler height is between...

There really isn't a good way to attach a bike rack to a ball mount shank either if the ball mount has a rise of 6 inches.
