Video Transcript for Curt 2 Inch Hitch Extender Review

Hi, John with etrailer. If you have a vehicle that has a rear-mounted spare tire, then you know all too well that there's a lot of accessories that just don't want to work with your vehicle. Well, now they can. Today we're gonna be taking a look at the CURT line of hitch extenders. Now these come in a variety of sizes, anywhere from eight inches, 14 inches, up to 18 inches in length. Now having different size hitch extenders is gonna help you for different situations.

You know, our situation today, we have an H2 that could never have a bike rack on it from the factory, and so we use CURT's 14-inch extender. We now have a bike rack. We don't have to shove the bikes right off the trail into the back of it. We can put it on here, and this 14-inch fits the Hummer nicely. Even when the bikes are off, we can fold this up into the stowed position, something that, again, previously we couldn't do.

We've had a lot of questions for like special cases like this, or even Jeep owners, that also have rear-mounted spare tires. There's also situations with SUVs and some minivans where they have a recessed hitch, and so they're running into the same situation. Will this fit on my one vehicle It might fit on another vehicle, but you don't wanna buy two different bike racks or two different cargo racks. If you can get one nice rack or one nice carrier, and use it for both vehicles, then that's the way to go. Now, another reason for the different size hitch extenders is a situation like this, where towing would be either very difficult or nearly impossible to do without an extender.

You can see just in this instance, we're using the eight-inch extender, and that's gonna bring our hitch ball almost dead even with our spare tire. So getting the jack up and down, hooking up, all of that stuff is gonna be much, much easier. One thing to keep in mind when you are looking at hitch extenders is with your safety chains, realize that you're pushing your trailer however many inches back, depending on the extender size. So you may need to lengthen your safety chains to be able to make sharp turns and such. So we're back in the shop, and we've got the three solid shake options laid out for you here.

Now let's talk about some of the weight capacities, and how this could affect your towing performance. Each of these is rated at 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight rating, and 350 pounds maximum tongue weight rating. Now, the one thing you need to keep in mind when using hitch extenders is that if there's anything under 12 inches, such as our eight-inch extender here, then this is gonna reduce your tongue weight rating on your hitch by 25%, just because of the mechanical advantage and the leverage that we're putting on the hitch. Anything over 12 inches, such as the 14 and 18 here, this is gonna reduce your tongue weight rating on your hitch by 50%. Also, how does this affect your gross trailer weight rating Even if your hitch is rated at five or six or 7,000 pounds, we have to abide by the lowest number. And on these hitch extenders, that lowest number is gonna be 3,500 pounds. Now, a few options you may wanna pick up with your extender is an extra pin and clip. Since you're gonna have an additional piece of equipment back there, you'll need an additional pin and clip. These are gonna take your five-eights inch pin and clip, probably recommend possibly a locking one. We have those here at etrailer. Also, there's gonna be an anti-rattle clamp that may do you some good. These sometimes tend to be a little sloppy, once you start hooking up equipment back there, and you're gonna get some noise and possibly vibration out of it. The anti-rattle clamp is going to eliminate a lot of that movement, and just make for a nicer ride. So how do you know which hitch extender is gonna be right for your particular situation Well, CURT measures these extenders from pinhole to pinhole. So for instance, this eight-inch is gonna read eight inches from the center of the pinhole to the center of the other pinhole, and so on and so forth. So it puts a 14 and the 18. So for instance, when we hook the camper up to the H2 here, we measured from the center of the pinhole on our factory hitch, and by the time we added the extender and our drop ball mount, it put us exactly where we wanted, which was out at the edge of the spare tire here. So in the end, no matter which hitch extender you choose to alleviate your situation, I just don't think you're gonna go wrong. Whether it comes down to the welds, the powder coat finish, or the reinforced collar, I think CURT's quality is second to none. One thing is that these shanks on here, on all three of them, they're solid steel. This is something that's just gonna last, and it's gonna be a great addition to your towing equipment. So that's gonna complete our look at CURT's line of hitch extenders.

I got this hitch extender to put on my camper so that I could mount my bike rack. It worked like a charm!! The bike rack and bike were super solid on the trip cross country!!



by:

Works great. Gives me the space I need to swing my Jeep's tail gate open further so I can access the rear cargo area. One thing that would make it a five star would be safety chain rings welded on so I didn't have to buy more chain to extend the already very long chains all the way to the bumper, which leads to a lot of chain dragging on tighter turns.



by:

First off, I love Curt products. When I found this item at Etrailer at this low price I was shocked. I was prepared to receive a knock off. I tried my luck and was amazed the product not only showed up at my doorstep the next day but is a very high quality Curt product. My handyman was working on the house and he couldn’t believe the quality at that price. Thanks Etrailer! You are my new go to for my traveling needs.



by:

I HAVE A JOHN DEERE GATOR AND IT WAS DIFFICULT CONNECTING TRAILERS TO THIS HITCH WITHOUT GETTING ON YOUR HANDS AND KNEES.. NOT ONLY THAT BUT THE TRAILER HAD TO HAVE A LONG TONGUE.

SINCE I PURCHASED MY C 45796 CURT EXTENDER FOR MY 2 INCH RECEIVER , I NOW CAN HOOK UP ANY TRAILER AND TOW IT SUCCESSFULLY AND HOOKING UP IS VERY EASY. NO MORE GETTING ON THE GROUND . I AM WELL PLEASED WITH THE CURT EXTENDER

THANKS FOR QUICK DELIVERY



by:

Excellent Comunication from the time the order is placed through delivery of product. I will use etrailer again with no hesitation.
Thank you.



by:

The tow extension 18” is solidly built, I will be using it when I launch my boat to keep the tow vehicle farther from the water.



by:

Came as described, did what i wanted it to do which was extend my Dirt bike rack out past my tailgate, so i could some Hooligan/ neck breaking [stuff]. Really solid well built part though durable, worked well have no complaints or isses with the product.



by:

Purchased to use on my 2020 Yamaha Drive 2 golf cart hitch. I ordered this and an 18” receiver extension. When I placed my online order I received a phone call the next morning asking if was aware that the extension and the receiver hitch were different sizes and would not work together. I was very grateful for the call as I had not realized I had ordered items that would not fit together. Great Customer Service!!!



by:

Fits my hitch and clevis pin perfectly. Weld is very professional and the whole part is well-finished.



by:

My truck bed camper is so easy to access with the hitch stair and extender. Having them has finished my project off perfectly. Thanks.



by:

Very well made, the male end is solid 2”x2” steel and the female end has a steel band around the end for increased strength. Nice hard baked on finish as well, it arrived with the box damaged, but the 18 inch hitch extension didn’t have a scratch on it. I deducted one star because it is not made in the USA.



by:

Ordered on a Saturday afternoon and received on Wednesday morning. It doesn't get much better than that. No more bending under the rack to hook up a trailer.
Thanks Etrailer

It’s a quality product and I highly recommend it if you need an extension on your ATV.



by:

This product work perfectly. Very strong material, it will not bend under a load. I use it to extend out from under my UTV to attach the salt spreader.



by:

I have been dealing with etrailer for nearly a decade. I have always receive quality products in a timely manner. I needed to make a return (I ordered the wrong item) and the return was handled cheerfull with Korren.

Perfect for John Deere 835R

Keep in mind that using an extender such as this will lower the capacity of the hitch both towing and tongue weight capacity by half.



by:

Going fishing and hunting will be much easier now. Now I can get in the bed of my truck & get things out easy. I have a brand new truck & didn't want to scratch up the tailgate. Also shipped very fast. Thanks

Works great

Needed this item to be able to tow my boat behind my pick-up with 9 foot camper.
Had put off towing because I thought I needed a very long extension bar coupled with a weight distribution system...which would not be compatible with my trailer anyways. So I gave up on the idea of towing with it, leaving the boat behind on trips for over ten years. That all changed when I perused the etrailer web site for solutions. Found the solution with the Curt 18" extension bar and the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch (RM-061). With a 12 inch ball mount on the end, and securing both with a pair of Roadmaster Hitch Quieters, it turned out to be perfect. I can move forward and turn either direction just past 45 degrees with out danger of a jack-knife event. My boat/motor/trailer weighs about 1,300 lbs, so I was well within the reduced weight limits imposed by using an 18" extension bar with the class III hitch. The Hitch Quieters were like "icing on the cake," eliminating 3/8" of horizontal and especially vertical "slop" and associated noise. The boat can go with me all the time now.

Just great! I tow without a worry. The set up quite often becomes the topic of conversation at the boat ramp when others see it.



by:

Very solid product.



by:

Received my 18" extender for my 2" receiver in 3 days. It's going to work perfectly, enabling me to haul bikes with the Thule spare me bike rack at the same time as cargo on a luggage rack at the end of the 18" extender on my Jeep Wrangler. Product is super heavy, therefore, super durable.

Still enjoying the product, working out great



by:

Great products arrived super fast, super quality, I'll send a picture when I get them installed. My gate was closed, I hand carried the package down 400 ft. of driveway. Now I'm resting, good quality weighs a bit. Thanks a million.



by:

Rock solid, heavy-weight, and inspires confidence. I ordered two and linked them together because I couldn't find something longer without spending a lot more and a complicated install. I had a simple problem to solve - a deep keel 22 foot sailboat at a boat ramp and I needed another few feet of tongue length to keep my tailpipe out of the water. I stop at the top of the ramp, hook up the two lengths, and I have just enough distance to keep the pipe out of the water. Of course I remove the extenders for any travel over the road. The two pieces together are very easy to handle as components and the price was much lower here than other vendors. And, did I mention that I ordered early one morning and in a different time zone and George J had it out the door in under 2.5 hours. I figure he processed my order right after he got to work and before he went to the coffee maker. Thanks George.

Patrick

Thanks for asking, I’m very satisfied with it but don’t use my extension apparatus all that much. It was for my boat trailer and I had to deal with a ramp situation that had me concerned. It solved the problem and I keep it stored safely away for the next time. I only trailer once or twice a season and sometimes not at all as we have the boat at a slip. But, if a hurricane is coming and there is a need to pull it quickly the extension will make all the difference in the world. Thanks again.



by:

The Curt 18 inch extender arrived on time especially for this time of the year. It is seriously heavy duty, well constructed. It will be used on my Gator for towing a log splitter, will save my back big time for those familiar with the rear hitch receiver location on a Gator. I am sure I will find other uses for it on my P/U or MH. Great product at a fair price and shipped for free. How good is that?

Dan S.

12/1/2018

The extender is working out great, I have used it many times, I like it even better after each use. Fantastic product and company to deal with.



by:

I bought this extender after a lot of looking around, this one does the trick!!! It is SOLID Square, not heavy wall tube, the only thing that might hurt this is a Atomic Bomb!!!!! I plan to tow my boat behind my truck with the tail gate down because the camper is 8', and my truck bed is 6'2", the 18" model was exactly what I needed. Shipping was fast, the whole buying experience was PAINLESS, will order from these folks without worry!!

Mike P.

10/25/2017

Fantastic!!! This extender will be here long after a Atomic bomb goes off. Very well built!!!



by:

I haven't used it yet, but it fits fine on my 2017 Nissan Frontier. It appears to be solid and has a great finish. I'm excited that I can now pull my scooter/motorcycle trailer with my tailgate down allowing for more cargo and camping gear in the bed.

Potential buyers should keep in mind that you will likely need longer chains and a lighting wire extension for your trailer.

Please keep in mind that using the # C45796 Hitch Extender will decrease the towing and tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50.

  • Trailer Hitch Extension for 2 Inch Hitch on 2019 Audi Q8
    I can certainly understand wanting to keep the wheels of your 2019 Audi Q8 out of the saltwater, and while there are hitch extenders that will add distance, there isn't a 36 inch extender that will work. The longest hitch extender is 18 inches, and there are a couple available that will work with a 2 inch hitch: the Curt Extender # C45796 and Brophy Hitch Extender # HE18. To secure any of these extenders to your hitch you will also need the Pin and Clip # PC3 if you do not have one already.

  • How Much Does Hitch Extender Reduce Tongue Weight Capacity
    The answer is actually pretty simple, because using any type of hitch adapter, including a hitch extender, reduces the capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent, and that includes both the towing capacity and the tongue weight capacity. I am not certain what the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 is, but using the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long # C45795 or the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Receivers -18" Long # C45796 will reduce that...

  • Safety Chain Configuration When Using Hitch Extender to Tow Trailer
    When using an 18 inch long hitch extender like the Curt # C45796 you can certainly use two sets of chains like you mentioned, one set from the truck to the extender's receiver and one from the receiver to the trailer. Technically only the chains from the receiver to the boat trailer would need to be crossed to create that cradle for the coupler in the event that it becomes unattached. If you'd rather not weld on D rings to the extender you can also just use one set of longer chains from...

  • Hitch Extension for Use With Truck Camper
    By extension that "uses chains to the corners of my truck hitch" I assume you are talking about an extender such as the TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension # TLE1521 which attaches like in the accompanying photo. The SuperTruss extenders that use chains are only fits for TorkLift SuperHitch dual-receiver trailer hitches so these would only fit if you had one of those on your truck. As for 18" hitch extenders such as the Curt # C45796, there are none we carry which use chains that attach...

  • 36 Inch Hitch Extender for a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    I do have options for you but you cannot install two of part # C45796 together to get a total of 36". Doing so would completely diminish your trailer hitches weight capacity. The most cost effective solution I have for you would be to use part # RP45292 for 24"-34". However, this option is only 34" max lenth and will require a 2-1/2" trailer hitch receiver like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15860.

  • Comparing Draw Tite and Curt 18 Inch Hitch Extenders
    One of the differences between Draw Tite adapter # HE18 and the Curt model # C45796 is the length. They both have 18" between hitch pin hole and the ball hole, the Curt is overall a bit longer. The Curt has an overall length 23-1/4" and the Draw Tite is 22-7/8. This difference would not make a differenc. On the Curt the shank that fits into the 2 inch receiver is solid and the Draw Tite is hollow. Regarding the tongue weight capacity reductions: They both state a capacity reduction...

    One adapter is fine, but you actually can't also use the Curt Extender for 2" Hitch Receivers # C45796 as using two adapters would create two much of a weak point and would limit your towing capacity to nearly 0. If you haven't found a dual hitch receiver yet, the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter for Tow Bars # RM-077-8 is a great option that has a pretty large rise/drop of 8", and would work great with a cargo carrier like 24x60 Reese Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # 63153.

    Depending on what truck you have the only extenders we have that would work for your 7,000 pound horse trailer would be The TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension # TLE1524. This extender is 24 inches long and has a sturdy steel construction that has a black powder coat finish that helps resist corrosion.

These use existing mounting holes to mount and will not require any drilling for installation. The TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles # TLS9529 are the turnbuckles I recommend.

This can be viewed as a shank for a custom cargo carrier, ball mount, or bike rack. It doesn't have the hollow receiver for an extension but you could fabricate it to do so.

Then any ball mount will make up the rest. We have a ball mount kit, # 989900, that includes two different ball mounts and hitch balls that may work for you.

    When you use a hitch extension in a 2 inch or 1-1/4 inch receiver it will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. But if you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver the tongue weight capacity is not reduced but usually the capacity of he extension is lower than the hitch so you would go by the lower rating. If you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening you can use the Titan extender # RP45292 at the 24 inch length. That will give you a capacity of 6,000 pounds; 8,000 when using weight...

If the boats hull is not strong enough to support it's weight on the small surface area of the rollers, then you could see dimpling on the hull from the rollers.

    For a 2 inch hitch like what you'd have on your Chevy Silverado 1500 we have an 18 inch long hitch extender part # C45796 which would be a decent option. But you should note that with hitch extenders like this you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch in half due to the increased leverage so you'll need to keep that in mind and be sure not to exceed half of the capacity of your trailer hitch.

    Yes the Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System # MPG908 can work with the Curt Hitch Extender # C45796. In most applications a small amount of space rests between the larger portion of the extender and the collar of your vehicles hitch. The distance between the pin hole of the extender and the larger section of the extender is 3". This allows some room for the U-Bolt of the Malone anti-rattle device to fit.

This extra long ball mount will allow you to put the hitch ball center 13-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch receiver. This is rated for 10,000 lbs. I recommend the # 63845 for a 2 inch hitch ball or # 19260 for a 1-7/8 inch ball.

So it will fit into a 2-1/2-inch hitch but it then reduces the available opening on the other end to 2-inches.
