How to Install the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit on a 2017 Ram 2500


Today on our 2017 RAM 2500 we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit for the RAM under-bed gooseneck hitch, part number is C60618. Now the ball itself is a 2-5/16" diameter, which is going to be pretty common when it comes to the gooseneck connectors. It offers a 30,000 pound weight capacity. Of course your truck is going to be the limiting factor. You don't want to exceed what your truck's tow rating is. That chrome plated finish is going to keep it looking nice for a long time to come. Our safety chain connection points, heavy duty steel, and very convenient size for connecting your safety chains to.

They're going to have the black powder coat finish again to make sure they look good for a long time to come. When we're ready for installation we just need to grab our heavy duty box here, open it up and inside we'll see our 2-5/16" ball, our two safety chain connection points, and the rubber cap plugs designed to fit in the top of the gooseneck head itself. Now the installation's really quite simple. You can see our lever lock here on the top of the ball, we'll cam that up and just turn it to the side so it can't close back down. I'm going to remove the center cap, place the ball down and in, then just cam that closed. You can see that'll have it locked into position, and when our gooseneck's actually over it's going to hold that lever down and keep it from coming up.

Now the ball has this pretty snug fit. There's a little bit of play front to back and side to side, but not so much that I'd be worried about it. Safety chain connection points are going to have a small clip on them. We'll pull that out, pull our pin out, put that in position and rotate it. Our pin will go back in, and then our keeper. You see that's going to allow a little bit of rotation so as our chains move side to side it'll move freely with it.

When using your larger safety chain connection you can see they're going to clip around there nicely. This is the type that uses the 3/8 pin here through the bottom, so you can keep that in mind. Now comparing this safety chain connection point with others available out there on the market, the keeper on our chain would not go fully around that other type. Now when not in use we can simply pull that lever back up, twist it, remove the ball, and we've got the nice Curt cap that'll fit right down in there. Kind of eliminates the need for this cap, which can be kind of difficult to remove every time. That's going to complete our look at the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops kit for the RAM under-bed gooseneck hitch.

Part number is C60618 on our 2017 RAM 2500.
