Review of Curt Pintle Hitch C48190


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Pintle hook with a two inch hitch ball, and this Pintle hook and hitch ball combo lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The Pintle hook connects to lunette ring couplers and then the hitch ball connects to a standard ball coupler. This is a bolt on installation with the included hardware. It's designed to bolt to a Pintle hook mounting plate. The mounting plate is sold separately. We do carry variety of mounting plates here at etrailer.com, so if you're in need of one, you can check out some options. Unit also features an interchangeable hitch ball.

What that means is this hitch ball can be removed and a different one can be installed, so you can swap this one for a 1-7/8 inch ball or 2-5/16 inch ball. Now, both of those are sold separately and they are available here at etrailer.com. The unit itself is made from a very strong and durable forged steel construction. It's going to feature rust-resistant finishes, so we're going to have a high gloss, powder coated finish on the actual Pintle hook, so everything that's black is going to have that powder coating. Then the hitch ball is a steel construction with the chrome plating, which is going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion, lasting a long time. You're going to have the pin and clip here at the top. That is tethered so that way you don't have to worry about misplacing that or losing it.

The way that you would make you connection, whether you're connecting to a standard coupler or to a lunette ring, is you want to begin by removing the pin and clip, lift up on the T-handle. It's going to allow you to bring back that upper arm and that opens the unit. At this point you can make your connection again, whether you're doing a lunette ring connection or a standard coupler connection. Then if you're doing a lunette ring connection, you would bring this back down on top of the hitch ball and re-insert the pin. If you're connecting to a standard trailer coupler, you would leave this in the up position and to ensure that it stays in the up position, what you would do is simply reinstall the pin and clip with it in that position and that's going to prevent it from being able to come all the way back down. This is a really nice design, it's very easy to use. It will fit lunette ring couplers with the diameter of two and a half to three inches.

The unit, when it comes to the gross towing weight for the Pintle hook, is 16,000 pounds, and for the two inch hitch ball, it's going to be rated at 10,000 pounds. When it comes to the mount holes here on the back, ad the whole separation, apart on center going this direction, we're looking at about 3-3/8 of an inch. Going this direction, they're separated by 1-3/4 inches. Then those diameters of the mount holes, it's going to be 9/16 of an inch. Again, your installation hardware is included. It's going to come with your bolt, split lock washer and that. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt Pintle Hook with the two inch hitch ball..
