Video Transcript for Review of Curt Trailer Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - C54CR

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and we're going to be taking a quick look at the Curt two inch hitch ball. This is a great replacement for an existing ball that's maybe gotten worn out, rusted, or damaged, or maybe you're just getting a whole new system and you want to create that ball mount to fit with your trailer set up. So this works with a two inch coupler. You just need to make sure that you have a one inch hole to allow the shank to slide through there and fit nicely.Let's take a closer look at it and go over some of the features and make sure that this is the right fit for you. It is made out of a heat resistant, or heat treated steel.

So it's going to be nice and durable for a long time, and then it has a Chrome finish to provide that corrosion resistance as well.It does have the included nut and lock washer to help hold that in place. You want to make sure that whenever you put this on your ball mount, that you torque it down to specs. It comes with those numbers, so that's going to be the hardest part of install is just getting it torqued down properly. It does take a lot of force to do that so if you want to make sure that you either take it to a shop or use a large torque wrench, to be able to do that.There's a couple of flats on either side and make it a little easier to get that installed. It has fine threads on the shank there to provide a nice tight grip onto that ball mount so you don't have to worry about it twisting or coming loose over time, especially with also that lock washer as well.Again, this is going to work for a ball mount that has a one inch diameter hole, and it fits a ball mount platform that's at least three eights of an inch thick.

The shank is two inches and an eighth, or two and eight inch long. The weight capacity that this can handle is 7,500 pounds or 7,500 pounds, and it does have a one year limited warranty.Now what the rate weight rating, I would say you want to be sure to check the weight rating for not only your ball, but also the ball mount, your pin, your hitch and your vehicle. You never want to exceed the lowest number between any of those components. If you think of it, you're really only as strong as your weakest link. So make sure that everything is up to spec so that you're safe whenever you're towing.

That's pretty much it for our look at the Curt two inch ball. I hope this has been helpful in deciding if this is the right one for you. We do have a lot of other options available here at etrailer.com. So check them out. Thanks for watching..

Review from a similar Curt Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


What to say about a hitch ball? It went on the mount easily and quickly. All parts and instructions were included, packaged well, and in perfect condition. Delivery was fast. Price was excellent and the customer services was even better! Thanks to Paula S. And etrailer for another great experience.

Review from a similar Curt Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


I know the finish won’t last but I was hoping I’d get a little longer out of it. It just seems like it aged very quickly and I even greased it to save it a bit although you’re not supposed to for general trailer safety. Still works though… don’t know what else you could ask. If you buy one, but from etrailer. No better site on the internet


Comments
We do recommend greasing the hitch ball to help disconnecting the coupler and to help protect rust. Use with the trailer coupler is going cause scratches which will eventually lead to rust. I recommend using grease part # 58117

Review from a similar Curt Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Looks like a good quality tow ball. I'll never be able to tell you though. I cut the shank off to build my own trailer coupler lock for cheaper than a purpose built coupler lock. This ball plus the e98883 coupler pin lock makes my trailers secure in my yard as well as anywhere we go. Trailer can't be towed away if there is already a hitch ball locked in the coupler and there a only enough shank left to grab the ball but not enough left to hook it to a new hitch reciever. And by buying enough keyed-alike coupler pin locks, one key fits all trailers unlike previous setups I tried where each coupler lock had its own key.

Review from a similar Curt Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


What can I say - it is a towing ball. I have a rather large landscape trailer and this is just the ball needed to pull it with some safety margin above the trailer's GVWR -- this is about the highest rated 2-in ball I have seen before jumping up to the 2 5/16" balls usually reserved for campers and other larger bumper pulls. The only negative I have seen on this is the torque rating, which is what it is. 450-ft-lbs -- you better have a [**] beefy torque wrench, be willing to buy one, or know someone who does. Given the cost of torque wrenches above 300 ft-lbs it would be a really nice option if etrailer would offer service where the ball can be delivered pre-torqued on the drop or raise shank of your choice.


Comments
I stand behind my initial review though point of clarification. I ordered the ball in 2019, posted a 1 year review in 2020. And now they are asking me for another 1 year update....well 2 years later it is still solid.

Review from a similar Curt Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


I'm very glad to have gotten this hitch, in the year I've had it it's allowed me to trailer motorcycles twice and move myself, saving terrific money over renting a truck. I only wish I had ordered it sooner. Installation wasn't terribly difficult, though breaking loose the bolts where the hitch installs would likely have been quite unpleasant if I didn't have an 18" wrench handle.

Review from a similar Curt Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


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

A friend who has towed 9000lbs+ boats, recommended you, and thankfully, I took his advice. The person who answered my call last year was very knowledgeable and gave ne excellent advice for my towing problem(front end sway) and advised me to purchase a proper sway and load hitch, which I did and installed(even made a roll-around" to store the heavy items when not in use). Thank you for excellent service, bruce

Landed on my doorstep less than 72 hours late w free shipping. Can't ask for much more and the Curt 2 5/16" ball replaces a 15 y/o ball so I'm good for another 15+. Can't go wrong with either Curt or etrailer. Thx again.

Really nice finish and quality for a good price. The flats are helpful to torque to what? 450 foot pounds? I know turn the 2 inch square ball mount 90 degrees and stand on my 1 inch drive torque wrench, but I only weigh 155. Do the math, a cheater pipe 3 feet long.

Super impressed with the service and timeliness of your organization. Found y’all randomly on google and you are super legit. Helpful website, helpful recs, customer reviews. Customer service great too. Forgot part of my order (wiring harness) and it was overnighted, arrived on time. Everything on point. Keep it up. The hitch itself was easy enough to install. Had to really use some PBlaster on the rear most holes and ended up needing an impact to get the job done. Beware kinda hard with just hand tools if the receiving holes are rusty,

  • Ball Mount With 6 Inches of Rise for 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    Since your trailer's coupler height is 18 inches, and your hitch height is 12-1/4 inches, you are correct that you would need a ball mount with 5-3/4 inches of rise. That said, you do not need to have the exact amount of rise (or drop) for your ball mount, and being within an inch or so is perfectly fine. So I recommend a ball mount with a 6 inch rise, the Curt Ball Mount # C45090. To mount it to your hitch you can use Pin and Clip # PC3 but I recommend locking for protection with the...

    The Curt Class IV Hitch # C14029 and the Curt Class III Hitch # C13029 will install exactly the same and will sit at 18 1/4 inches from the ground to the top of the hitch. With these being 2 inch receivers and having, roughly, a 1/4 inch lip going around the outside of the receiver opening, you would be looking at 16 inches of ground clearance with stock suspension and wheels. Deciding between the Class III and Class IV hitches will depend on the weight capacity needed. The Class IV #...
