Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45297 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at Part Number C45297, this is the Curt Ball Mount for Two Inch Hitches. The 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, and then the platform here on the mount is going to provide a good mounting point for your hitch ball. The hitch ball is going to be sold separately, if you need one, you can check out some options here at etrailer.com. You can use either the drop or the rise position, both are available with this mount to help ensure a more level tow. It's going to be made from a sturdy steel construction, it's going to have the nice chrome plating so it's designed to resist rust and corrosion. You see on the back side, it's going to offer a hollow shank. Now if you need a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock, those are going to be sold separately. You can find those here on our website using Part Number C21500, that's going to be your five-eighth inch pin, it will come with a clip, or if you want a pin and lock, you can use Part Number 7683. This unit is designed for two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers.

A couple of measurements to go over with you real quick. I want to take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole. That measurement is going to give us a measurement of nine and three quarters of an inch. Now you can see here that when you want to use this in the rise position, you do have this brace right here, so I'm going to give you a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of that brace measuring to the base of this weld, and then you can see here that it's going to, that measurement is going to increase the higher up we go here on the ball mount when you use it in the rise position. Measuring from the closest point of that weld to the center of the hitch pin hole, that's going to give us a measurement of about two and three quarters of an inch. Now if you want to use it in the rise position, it's going to give us a rise of four and one quarter of an inch, that's measuring from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform. In this position, it's going to offer a gross towing weight of six thousand pounds with a maximum tow weight of six hundred and fifty pounds. Using it in the drop position, this is going to give you your drop measurement from this point here to this point here, of five and three quarters of an inch, gross towing weight is now seventy five hundred pounds with a maximum two weight of seventy hundred and fifty pounds. When it comes to the ball hole diameter, that's going to measure one inch, keep that measurement in mind when choosing the hitch ball, you want to make sure that the shank of the hitch ball matches the ball hole diameter on this mount.

Curt is going to cover this with a limited lifetime warranty. I want to go ahead and place it into our receiver here, just to give you an idea of how easy the installation is. All you got to do is slide the shank into the trailer hitch receiver, again two inch by two inch applications. Line up your pin holes, and then you can insert your hitch pin and clip, or your hitch pin and lock, it's going to be secured and you're going to be ready to go. That's going to do it for today's review of Part Number C45297, this is the Curt Ball Mount for Two Inch Hitches. .

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


Purchased because I wanted something that looked a little better than the standard black ball mount and couldn’t find the size I wanted in aluminum. I used it 3 times last season and put it away for the winter in my garage. It was never on the truck while salt was on the road. Pulled it out the other day and it is a disgusting rusty mess. Attempts to clean off the rust were unsuccessful it was that bad. Total waste of money BTW the picture is post cleaning, it was even worse before


Comments
Allan, thank you for your review. If you live in a humid area or store the ball mount in a humid environment it may rust. I would recommend to store the ball mount in a ball mount bag when not in use such as part # ETBMB
etrailer Ball Mount Bag
$11.31
. I also recommend purchasing an aluminum ball mount such as part # DTBM4400
Flash Solid Aluminum Ball Mount - 4" Drop, 3" Rise - 10,000 lbs
$84.95
. This fastway ball mount has a 4 inch , 3 inch rise, supports up to 14,000 pounds and takes a 1 inch diameter shank hitch ball. One of our installers owns part # DTBM4400
Flash Solid Aluminum Ball Mount - 4" Drop, 3" Rise - 10,000 lbs
$84.95
. He kept the ball mount in his hitch receiver for a year, exposed to the elements and it showed very insignificant signs of corrosion. I have also attached a link about rust prevention.

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


You can tell it's a well made durable hitch. I needed a 2" drop so my RV would pull level and this hitch did the trick. The chrome hitch also looks so much better than my old back one.

High-quality finish. Feels solid. Fit as described; we're using it in the raised position. Love those etrailer videos with their rulers and detailed measurements! They really helped me pinpoint the right product.

Great quality on flat steel bar, well polished out, and chromed. Square tube could have been deburred a little better on inside the open end. But overall everything claimed to be and more for fair price.
