Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - C40007 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C40007. This is the Curt Chrome Hitch Ball with 2 5/16ths inch diameter, steel construction with a chrome finish, so it's going to offer protection from rust and corrosion. It's also going to feature the wrench flats here on the side of the platform. It's going to allow you to easily get your wrench on there and tighten to the mount and you can easily get it torqued to specifications listed by the manufacturer. The torque rating for this particular mount is indicated in the instructional tag here on the backside. It says that it needs to be tightened to 250 foot pounds of torque. The capacity on the ball is going to be 10,000 pounds.

The shank diameter, this portion here, is going to measure 1 inch. The shank length, measuring from the bottom of that platform to the end of the threaded portion, that's going to give us a measurement of 2 1/4 of an inch. It does include the lock washer, as well as the nut. That's going to do it for today's review of part number C40007. This is the Curt 2 5/16th inch Chrome Hitch Ball, rated at 10,000 pounds. .

This trailer ball is well made, the threads are cut nicely, and it fits the trailer hitch tightly. I gave it 4 start out of 5 because it does not have a terribly heavy trailer rating considering it is a 2 5/16 ball. I understood this when I ordered it, as my trailer isn't that big, and I needed a ball with a 1 inch shank. I received very good help from the salesperson on the phone, in getting my order together. All in all a good experience. PS Quality wise, for a 10,000# ball, this should probably be 5 start, but I gave it 4 stars because most 2 5/16 hitches are rated for far more than that, and for a bigger trailer, I wouldn't want the ball to be the weak link.

Needed a 12" drop hitch for my truck since it has quite a bit of lift. Not only did etrailer have the highest rated 12" drop hitch I could find but also the cheapest! I also ordered a 2 & 5/16ths ball that also rated at 10,000lbs. My boat and trailer loaded up is about 6500/7000 so this will def cover the pay load and then some. Shipping was very fast and everything was well boxed together. Would def recommend this company to anyone I knew.

All of the products are High quality, what I expected them to be. But even better, they came with-in a 24 hour period, and that was the best part of it all, because I was not expecting the parts to arrive until at least 5 days. As I said on my earlier review, I had searched around my town where I live, and could not find an inexpensive towing ball in the size that I needed for the right price, nor the friction sway control kit, and one could just forget about finding a sway control bracket. Thanks, again etrailer for such great service, which I truly thought, didn't exist anymore.

Received my 12" drop and ball about two weeks ago, the shipping was phenomenal ! They got it to me in two days on standard shipping. The drop works great with my 8" lift on my f250. Town straight as a arrow, and the cushion mount Smith's out any trailer slam I have felt with in the past.

I needed a 2 5/8" hitch ball with a 1" shank to fit my truck and trailer. None of the local stores carried this combination. Your store had just what I wanted and the price with shipping was no more than picking one up in the store. Your on line order process was simple and I had my equipment in just a few days! I will shop here again if I have a need.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball

  • Trailer Hitch Ball Mount With Longer Shaft and 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball
    We can get you a ball mount with a longer shaft to help keep your trailer safe. Without knowing the rise or drop you need, or the weight capacity, I can only offer a couple of general recommendations for ball mounts with long shafts. Since you have a trailer that utilizes a 2-5/16" hitch ball I assume it is on the heavier side so the best options are: - 13-1/4" Long Shaft: Brophy Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 10,000 lb Capacity # BM20 and 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40007 -...

    Brophy 2 inch hitch ball # CB26C is made in the USA. It is rated for 7,500 pounds and has a shank length of 2-1/4 inches and shank diameter of 1-1/4 inches. Convert-A-Ball interchangeable ball set # 901b has a 2 inch ball as part of the set. It is made in the USA and is rated up to 10,000 pounds. The shank diameter is 1 inch and the length is 2-1/2 inches. Set # 903b has the same specs except it is stainless steel and the shank length is 2-1/4 inches. The Convert-A-Ball sets will all...

  • How Tight Should Nut be On Curt Hitch Ball # C40007
    Looks like you have the wrong tag on your hitch ball part # C40007. The tag that it should have came with is supposed to read 250 ft lbs. If you watch the review video I attached for this ball you'll see our reviewer reads from the tag that it requires 250 ft lbs.

  • Is 2 Inch Hitch Ball Okay to Use With 2-5/16 Inch Coupler
    While I can sympathize with your issue, it is not safe to tow a trailer if you only have a 2" hitch ball and your trailer coupler is designed for a 2-5/16" hitch ball, even for a short distance; the insecure connection between hitch ball and coupler would pose a danger to others because of the risk of the trailer becoming uncoupled from the tow vehicle. The correct 2-5/16" hitch ball will depend on the shank diameter you need as well as capacity. Your ball mount will have a hole where...

  • How to Find a Ball Mount with the Right Rise or Drop to Tow a Trailer Level with a Ford F-150
    Yes, it is likely supposed to be 2-5/16 since there isn't a 2-5/6 option. In order to choose the best ball mount for your new Ford F-150 and motorcycle trailer you will need to do just a little measuring. You want to be able to tow the trailer level so you have to measure for the rise or drop needed to do so. Measuring is easy. Park the truck and the trailer on level ground. Measure from the ground up to the top of the trailer hitch receiver opening. Then use the trailer jack to make...

  • Hitch Ball Recommendation Made in America
    I believe I have something that will work for you, but the Curt Hitch Ball # C40007 that you referenced is not made in the USA, it is made in China. You might be interested in a Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set # 904B. This product is made in the USA and comes with an interchangeable hitch ball that will give you the option to easily change between a 2 inch and a 2-5/16 inch ball.

  • Will the Curt Chrome Hitch Ball # C40007 Fit a 3/8 Inch to 7/8 Inch Thick Ball Mount Platform
    Yes, the Curt Chrome Hitch Ball, # C40007, will just barely fit on a ball mount platform that is 7/8 inch thick. If your ball mount is 7/8 inch thick, you will have 2 or 3 threads showing past the nut, but the nut would fully engage the threads on the hitch ball shank.

    There is not an exact set minimum tongue weight for the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount w/ 2" part # C45949-22516 however it is not going to be very effective on a light weight trailer. We have asked Curt before about lightweight trailers between 2k and 5k and they do agree there won't be enough tongue weight to compress the cushioned isolator so you would essentially be paying for something you can't use.

  • Can I Extend My Hitch Without Using TorkLift Hitch and SuperTruss Extension
    The only other extension option we carry besides the Torklift SuperTruss extender that does not cut your tongue weight in half is an extra long ball mount. Traditional extensions such as part # C45796 cut the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on the truck in half because it creates extra leverage and movement in your towing setup. The only extra long ball mount we offer that is long enough for your setup is the Hidden Hitch ball mount part # 80232 at 15-3/4 inches long. That length...

  • Recommended Extended Ball Mount or Hitch Extender for Towing Boat Trailer

Having a longer ball mount like this will not reduce the capacity of your hitch at all. This will give you a length of 15-3/4 inches from the center of the ball to the hitch pin hole. For a compatible hitch ball the shank needs to be 1 inch diameter for this mount. I recommend the 2 inch ball # 40038 or 2-5/16...

For a ball mount the one with the most rise we offer is the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 10-3/4" Rise, 12" Drop # AMSC12. For 1-7/8" or 2" hitch balls with this mount you'll need the Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set # 901b; for a 2-5/16" hitch ball you'll need part # C40007. And for a hitch lock to secure the...

    It sounds like you need a ball mount with a drop to tow level with your trailer since your truck sits up higher.

I've attached a couple of pictures to help show this. Since you measured from the bottom of each you're likely going to need more than 10 inches drop.

The ball hole of the Reese bracket has a 1 inch diameter.
