Curt Trailer Hitch Ball - 2 Inch Hitch Ball - 40083 Review


Ellen: Hey everybody, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and we're going to be taking a quick look at the CURT two inch hitch ball. If you're needing to create a ball mount for yourself, and maybe you don't already have one, this allows you to attach a hitch ball to your ball mount or replace one that's maybe worn out or damaged. Let's take a closer look and make sure that this is the right fit for you.It is going to fit into a shank diameter that has a ball mount with an inch diameter hole since that's the diameter of our shank. It measures 2 1/8" long. That's going from beneath this part to the very end of the threads. We'll take the nut off.

The nut and washer are included with this, and you want to make sure to follow the torque specs to get that tightened down properly whenever you're putting it in place. So 2 1/8" long, an inch in diameter, the weight capacity for this is 6,000 pounds. Of course, you do want to go off of the lowest number between any component in your systems. That includes your hitch, the ball mount that you're putting this onto, and also your towing vehicle. Between all those things and anything in between you want to use the lowest number of any of them.This will fit most of your platforms between 3/8" to 1 1/4" thick.

It's made out of a stainless steel construction so you shouldn't have any worries about rust or corrosion, should be really nice and strong and durable. On the sides here you can see that there are flats built in to make it easier to hold onto whenever you are torquing that down. It does have nice, fine threads on the shank to give it a really tight, strong grip with the nut.That's pretty much all there is to it for our look at the two inch hitch ball. Hope this has been helpful in deciding whether this is going to be the right part for you. We do have a lot of options available here at etrailer.com for all your towing needs.

So check them out. Thanks for watching.
