Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - C40035 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C40035. This is the 2 and 5/16th-inch hitch ball with the 1-inch platform. The high-rise design is going to let you easily match the hitch ball to the trailer height. The trailer hitch ball's going to sit an extra inch above the ball mount platform. This unit's going to feature fine threads that are going to provide an exceptionally tight, strong grip. It's made from a steel construction with a nickel chrome finish to help resist rust and corrosion. The lock washer and the nut are both included. When installing this, the instructions indicate that this unit needs to be tightened to 450 foot-pounds of torque.

The ball diameter's going to be 2 and 5/16ths of an inch. Take a measurement of the shank length. That's going to give us a measurement of 2 and 5/8ths of an inch long. The shank diameter is going to give us a measurement of and inch and a quarter. The ball rise platform's going to measure right at 1 inch, and then the height from the bottom of the base, this point here, to the top of the hitch ball's going to measure 3 and 11/16ths of an inch.

The hitch ball's going to feature a capacity of 10,000 pounds. That's going to do it for our review of part number C40035. This is the Curt 2 and 5/16th-inch hitch ball with the 1-inch ball rise platform.

I like everything about this ball except the plating wore off the first time I used it. I always apply a small amount of grease when pulling my travel trailer but the plating still wore through.


Comments
It works great as a ball. However, the chrome wore through on the first use. So now I have a chrome ball with yellow brass lines on it.

Well built ball with 1" rise. Only downside is the lack of a faceted part of the shaft to be able to put a wrench on for tightening the nut. Still able to grab it with locking or slip joint pliers, but some flat spots to slide on a wrench would be ideal.

Pair this with a forged ball mount and you could tow a tank!

Although I have not had the chance to use the ball yet, the added 1 inch in height should be perfect to help level the Boy Scouts trailer I occasionally tow. As always, E-Trailer does a great job with service and support.

Review from a similar High-Rise Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


I like the extra meat this ball has. It also enabled me to get the running hieght "just right" for the towing application I use it with.

Review from a similar High-Rise Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


I haven’t used it. I bought it just-in-case and never needed it. I can say that I bought a standard chrome ball at the same time which lost its chrome and instantly rusted so I appreciate that this is matte rather than polished. I’m also glad this exists because it was the perfect solution to a problem I thought I might have had… I just ended up not having that problem. If you buy one, but from etrailer. No better site on the internet

Review from a similar High-Rise Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Dimensions are correct, photo is not. Photo is not a chromed ball; description is correct, it is chrome. After a couple of trips with a 6K# trailer, chrome is still in good condition, no peeling away (I did grease before attaching.). Nut fits a 1-13/16 wrench.

  • What Is Height Of Hitch Ball From Top Of Ball To Bottom Of Base
    The distance from the top of the hitch ball of part # C40035 to the bottom of the base is 3-11/16 inches. This is a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball and it has a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank. I have attached a photo of the hitch ball with the dimension you asked about noted.

  • Availability of a Forged Ball Mount with a 6 inch Rise
    Out of the ball mounts we carry that the manufacturers have labeled as being forged, the closest one to a 6 inch rise is going to be # 40332, that you have referenced. To get that additional inch, you could use a ball with a 1 inch rise like # C40035. This is a 2-5/16 inch diameter ball with a 1 inch rise and 10,000 pound capacity.

  • What Is Height From The Base To The Top Of The Ball On The Curt 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball, # C40035
    On the Curt 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball, # C40035, the height from the bottom of the base to the top of the ball is 3-11/16 inches. The overall length of the hitch ball is 6-5/16 inches. If you subtract the 2-5/8 inches length of the shank it gives you the 3-11/16 inches measurement.

  • 10k Rated Ball Mount Recommendation with 4 inches of Drop
    Before you pick out a ball mount you will need to make sure you know exactly how much rise/drop you would need for your trailer to be towed level. I attached a help article that details exactly how to do this. But for a 3 inch drop with a 10k rating you would want the Ball Mount # DT40201. This ball mount has 4 inches of drop, so to make up the additional inch you would want the high rise hitch ball part # C40035 which is a 2-5/16 inch ball with a 10k rating.

  • Availability Of 2-5/6 Hitch Balls With Rise
    I have another option for you, but you are correct that all of the 2-5/6" hitch balls with a rise use a shank that is larger than 1". Instead I recommend using the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1" Rise - 1-1/4" Diameter x 2-5/8" Long Shank - 10,000 lbs # C40035 or 2" Rise # C40036. Both of these options use a 1-1/4" shank so you would need to replace your current ball mount. I included a link to all of our ball mounts that use a 1-1/4" shank, and a link to a helpful article that goes over how...

  • Can Raised Hitch Ball be Used With Curt MV Weight Distribution System
    Yes, if you'd like you can use a raised hitch ball with the Curt MV Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control - Round Bar - 14K GTW, 1.4K TW # C17063. For that you can use either 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 2" Rise # C40036 or 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1" Rise # C40035.

  • Recommended Alumistinger Ball Mount And Hi-Rise Ball For 5 Inch Drop
    For a 5 inch drop, I recommend you go with the Alumistinger Ball Mount with 6" Drop or 5" Rise - 8,000 lbs GTW # AM3507 you mentioned with the Curt 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1" Rise - 1-1/4" Diameter x 2-5/8" Long Shank - 10,000 lbs # C40035. For a 2 inch ball you can use the Curt ball # C40033. These hitch ball options come with a lock washer for the base of the ball.

  • Available 2-5/16-Inch High-Rise Hitch Balls
    We carry many types and sizes of hitch ball that are displayed on the page I linked for you. Near the top of the page are our high-rise balls. We do have 2-5/16-inch high-rise balls such as # C40036 (2-inch rise) and # C40035 (1-inch rise) but both of these have a shank diameter of 1-1/4-inches and shank length of 2-5/8-inches. I linked a second page that shows the three 2-5/16-inch high-rise balls that have a 1-1/2-inch shank diameter; all have a shank length of 2-3/4-inches. The nearest...

  • 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball with Long Shank and 2 Inch Rise
    The closest ball we have to your specifications is # C40036. It is a 2-5/16 inch ball with a 2 inch rise but the shank is 2-5/8 inches long. The overall height would be almost exactly 7 inches.

  • Is There a 2-5/16" Hitch Ball with 1" Diameter Shank and Built In Rise
    I do have an option for you but none of our 2-5/16" hitch balls with 1" diameter shank have a built-in rise with the exception of the Curt RockerBall Shock Absorbing 2-5/16" Hitch Ball part # C82KR which has around a 1-1/2" rise due to the rocker mechanism. I have attached a full list of our 2-5/16" hitch balls with 1" diameter shank below. The 2-5/16" Hitch Ball part # C40035 only comes with a 1-1/4" diameter shank.

  • High-Rise Hitch Ball
    We have just what you need. For a 1-1/4-inch shank diameter we do offer two high-rise 2-5/16-inch hitch balls which can be seen on the link at right. These offer a choice of 1- or 2-inches of rise. Both # C40036 and # C40035 carry a 10K capacity. For 2-inch balls you can use either # C40034 or # C40033 along with bushing # 58184.
