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.

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

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.

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


Exactly what I needed for my 4 wheeler to keep the tongue of the trailer from being too low. The price was good and the delivery was quick. The only thing I had to do was to enlarge the hole to fit the one inch shank. Thanks etrailer for having what I needed.


Comments
Still working out great a year later. The trailer tongue does not hit the ground when I tow it with my four wheeler.

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


The ball works great, but I am not able to flip it over so it can sit flush in the bed because there is no groove on the shaft for the upside down position. I am disappointed with that aspect of the design.


Comments
This ball is not intended on being flipped over and stored in the hitch as it is a high-rise. This other one can be stored but will not work for you if you need the additional length: item # C60616

Getting the strongest ball mount takes the worry away from the ball being the weakest link. A little more money spent now can save a fortune later.

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


I ordered the 30000 lb. ball hitch for a gooseneck on my 01 F250 super duty. It arrived at the time that e trailer said it would. I was able to choose the way the item was shipped which saved me money over other online options. I just put it in since it was a raw Steel ball I hit it with a coat of flat black enamel to keep the rusting to a minimum. It is installed and ready to pull. I don't have a gooseneck trailer but now if I need to pull a rental or a friends I can. I like doing business with places directly like e trailer and cutting out the big box places that are not easy to communicate with if there is a problem. There wasn't any which is even better.

This is one massive hitch ball. Just one look and you know it is strong. I also love the little extra height. A great fit for my 2 5/16 coupler.

Still great.

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


So the customer service is fantastic. I ordered the BWX2000 and it showed up missing the shank. It was not etrailer’s fault as the shipment initially contained everything but the carrier messed up and the package didn’t arrive with the shank. I spoke to autumn in customer service and she did absolutely everything she could to get me the 2.5 inch shank I needed but ended up sending me the 2in receiver by mistake. Again I wasn’t upset because I did not specify and by the time I realized it was wrong the part was already on the way. Long story short I got the 2 in shank in the next day, this shank would work but it was not exactly for the load I wanted to safely pull. Anyway I ended up finding the correct shank, ordered it and it is one the way. Now I will have both the 2 and 2.5 in shank for the same distro hitch but guess what I am completely fine with it backside I have two trucks, each with different receivers so for just a little bit more I can use this hitch for both my trucks just fine. Everything happens for a reason and I was completely happy with how autumn helped me out. She was great and called me back several times to let me know what both she was trying to do and get assistance from several of her techs. Thank you and I will certainly do business with autumn and etrailer again. Autumn was really nice to me and did everything she could to help me out. Thanks again. Jason

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch Ball



  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Hitch Ball Height of Tow Ready Interchangeable Ball Set # 63804
    The Diversi-Tech Interchangeable Stainless Steel Ball Set # DTLBM3125 that you referenced is not a high-rise ball kit. Our interchangeable ball sets are all standard height. However, in 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.
