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. .

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.

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


I bought this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount because of its longer length. This would position my boat far enough away from the back hatch of my car, that I can open the hatch without fear of hitting my boat. It has worked exactly as I hoped, and would highly recommend this item, and etrailier. I have bought other items from etrailer and have never been disappointed in the items or customer service.


Comments
It is still working as advertised and what I had hoped for. No problems. Would recommend to anyone needing a little extra room between the back of the tow vehicle and the boattrailer.

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


My OEM Tow Hitch receiver was rusted out and the Ball mount was rusted to it, I had to replace both and the install went smooth. After I installed the Curt Tow Hitch Receiver I slid in the Curt Ball Mount and secured it with the included pin and cotter pin and I was off to the harbor to Launch my Waverunners for a fun filled day.

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


I have been towing trailers many years With no issues until recently. Trailer weights have increased and loads also. My three way ball with 2 5/16 was torn off of tubing because of insufficient welding, I was very lucky. Yes I went to a solid receiver with bolt style ball. Very great setup. Thanks curt for designing heavy hitches and etrailer for easy ordering.


Comments
Best hitch ever, every time I see trucks with fancy trailers with low grade metal and low tongue weight receivers. They don’t know or don’t spend time looking at there set up. Very happy with your great products in towing. Thanks again.

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


I used this on a 2014 Ford Fusion with a Reese receiver hitch made for my vehicle. Either the neck of the drop hitch is not long enough to get the ball a few inches away from the vehicle or the Reese receiver hitch sits too far under the vehicle.


Comments
The center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch sits approximately 4-1/4 inches under the rear bumper of your Fusion. This ball mount measures only 5-9/16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole. For a ball mount with similar rise but much more clearance for your bumper I recommend the Draw-Tite Drawbar for 1-14 inch Hitches # 36065
Draw-Tite Drawbar for 1-1/4" Hitches - 5" Rise - 10" Long - 3,500 lbs
$32.45
for use on your 2014 Ford Fusion. The Draw-Tite ball mount offers 10 inches of clearance from center of the hitch pin hole to center of hitch ball hole.

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


My complaint here is not with etrailer but with Curt. I put a Curt hitch on my Hyundai Sonata, perfect fit but because the Sonata is so low, the receiver is only 10" off the ground. I initially ordered a 5-3/8" rise drawbar but it did not have a long enough bar for the vertical portion to clear the bumper. I am having to use one with a longer bar but the rise is only 2-5/8" which put the trailer tongue lower than it should be. Curt designed the hitch for this low vehicle, they should make the 5-3/8" rise drawbar with a longer bar. etrailer knows their stuff and this is the only solution. The small single axel utility trailer I will be pulling will be lightly loaded so it will work OK but it will be angled down more than it should be. etrailer was super about swapping it out for me.

This drop hitch has been fantastic from day one. This product is very heavy-duty and secure for hauling the heavier loads on the flat-bed car hauler and the boat trailer. Very impressive. Thank-you.

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


I neeed to pull a trailer with my 2019 GMC Yukon. I found Etrailer.com and followed the instructions on determining the drop of the hitch, the instructions were spot on. I hooked up my trailer to my Yukon today, all was level and worked perfectly. I had driven around to Napa, Lowe’s, Home Depot and Walmart, and nobody had the 9” drop hitch I needed. Came back to Etrailer, bought the 2” ball and pin, and the Curt 9” drop hitch. I received the items quickly. Great website, Thanks, Craig

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


This see's a lot of action for a small hitch on my Jeep and it has held up very well. Durable and well built. The drop down distance is just right for my trailer to sit level.


Comments
So Ive had this for a year now and absolutely no issues. It gets put in and out regularly to tow my utility trailer with my Jeep Wrangler TJ. its the right down distance for keeping my trailer level due to the lift on my jeep. I still recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a down or if needed flip it to raise it Great product and Im still glad I purchased it.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • How to Gain More Height Clearance for Towing a Trailer and Using the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4
    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 Lets Go Aero BikeWing...
