Video Transcript for Curt Long Shank 2 inch Hitch Ball Review

Hi there, light duty towers. Today, we're going to be taking a look at CURT's 2" chrome ball.This is a class 2 ball, it's also going to work with class 1. And it has a 3/4" shank on the bottom, which is the diameter of our shaft coming out the bottom that's threaded. And it's also 2-1/8" long, which means that it'll work with drawbars that have a platform between 3/8" thick and 5/8" thick. And it's rated for a 3,500 pound gross towing capacity, which is going to be great for your small utility trailers, we've got one right here we're going to be hooking up to it, but also for other small trailers such as kayak carriers, and maybe a small jet ski trailer as well. The ball is a solid steel construction with a chrome plating on it to protect it against the elements, and it also gives it a nice look.One of the things you can do to help protect the finish and increase the life of your ball is grease it before every use.

That'll just give a little coating for your trailer hitch to pivot on as you're going down the road. Now we're not going to be greasing it today for demonstration purposes, but you can get some grease here at etrailer.com. Wheel bearing grease is a really easy thing to use. It's nice to have readily available, and works great on this.When you're ready to use your ball, we're going to take our trailer, unlatch the coupler on it, simply set it in place, and then latch it down. Now that we've got our trailer fully connected with our safety chain, and our coupler pin, and our wiring, we're now ready to hit the road and start towing.Once you get your ball you are going to need a drawbar to install it into, so you want to make sure you choose one with an appropriately sized hole.

Again, this is a 3/4" shank, so you want to look for one with a 3/4 diameter hole in your drawbar. And it's always a good idea to make sure your drawbar is matching the capacities of your ball, because if you get one that's less, you're limiting your ball because you're only going to be able to go with the max that your drawbar is.Let's go ahead and show you how we got the ball installed in the drawbar. Now, we'll begin our installation by removing the nut and washer from our ball, and then installing the ball into our drawbar. We're going to be placing it in this position, as this is really designed for a rise, for the most part, for this drawbar. So we're going to put it there, like that.

And then, on the other side, we're just going to re-secure it with the lock washer and nut.You'll have a couple of flat spots on your ball, so we're just lining those up in our vice to hold it. And then, we can use a 1-1/8" socket to torque the nut the manufacturer's specifications. You usually find that on a tag found on your ball. Now that we've got it torqued to the manufacturer's specifications, we can place it in our receiver, and we're ready to start towing.And that completes our look at CURT's 2" chrome ball.

Every part excellent quality. Perfect fit, all parts were exact for my vehicle. Watched the video on youtube for wiring and being a mechanic for over 50 years was able to connect signal lights all from driver side of harness. Instead of leaving plug inside trunk I wired through the rubber outlet to the back of the hitch ready for use. Very happy highly recommend etrailer.

For my 1 ton total Harbor Freight utility trailer, this ball, with a Curt Class II drawbar, on my '11 Mini Countryman S, is overkill, but I'm much happier knowing that the hitch and ball are working at far below maximum capacity. A mechanic neighbor had the tools needed to get the nut torqued properly. It's all very solid. Just part of a kit to create a part-time pickup truck where I can leave the "bed" at home.

Too expensive. Comparable items cost half as much. I should have done my research and searched around.

I am sorry you feel like you wasted your money. We do have a price pledge that states if you find the same product on another site, we will match their price 110 percent. It has to be the same brand and size and it cannot be on resell sites. Here is the full price pledge:

I have nothing to say about etrailer but good service, fast delivery, good quality products will use them for all my trailer needs.

This tow package fits great on my 2011 Forester. After watching the etrailer video, installation was easy. I was really impressed with how quickly and professionally this company processed this order and got it out to me in California; they even caught a mistake I made in the order with incompatible parts. I will definitely use this company in the future.

High quality products!! “NOAH E” helped me selecting the right set up! Great customer service highly recommended!!

I was very suspicious how will it fit and suit Dodge Challenger. But when I received trailer hitch, and by they way it travelled across the planet to reach me, I was totally impressed with the quality, ease of installation and accessories which I ordered with it. I basically installed it myself with a help of a friend, it took about 30 minutes to fix it. It really saved me as I needed the trailer to transport my bike to the race track and I didn't want to change the car. So the conclusion, I own it for more than a year and have zero issues or complaints about the hitch or accessories. I used to travel long and short distances and in average I use it every second week. You barely can notice it when you remove drawbar so it is very good solution.

Wonderful product! Most importantly their customer service was beyond exceptional. I ordered incompatible items and instead of just shipping them they reached out to better understand my need, and get me the right items. Every person I worked with was phenomenal! Huge shout out to Tyra F she saved my life with this move!

I needed a 2" ball for my pickup bumper. But it needed to have a longer shank than is normally in stock at walmart or car parts stores. But I knew where to go - eTrailer, and received in 2 days. You Go eTrailer!
