Video Transcript for Curt Pintle Hook for 2 inch Hitches Review

What's up everybody it's AJ with Today, we're gonna be checking out this curt pintle hook. Now, this is going to go in your two inch hitch. We have an adapter on our two and a half inch hitch here, right now, today, that's going to allow this to fit in there. And this is going to hook up to your lunette ring, so you can pull those kinds of trailers. It's going to be really easy to operate and use, and you can pull the pin here, and pull up on this latch, that brings this part up.

Now, it's ready for you to back up that ring, put it down, lower it over hook, close it back out, and you're good to go. Let's check it out. So this is going to work with lunette rings with a inner diameter of two and a half inches. So, just keep that in mind, when you're thinking about what trailer you're going to use this with, this will hold up to, it will tow up to 20,000 pounds, so, you have to keep that in mind too, with whatever you're going to haul on your trailer, and put on your truck. The whole construction of the pintle hook is going to be a steel forged construction.

So, it's going to hold up to the elements that you leave in the back of your truck, on the hitch all the time, or you throw it on the inside. It's going to hold up, it's going to last you a long time. One thing I will note though, it does not come with a pin and clip. So, that's what you're going to put here in the hitch pin hole. So, I recommend getting an each a locking pin and clip.

It's got a barrel lock on the end, and you turn it to tighten it down, and lock at the same time, which is going to keep it protected against people trying to lock, pick it, or even just mess with it. Now, it's time to go ahead and hook up that lunette ring. So, I'm gonna just back up the pintle hook in the place, and we'll get it attached. Now, I got back up, and in place, I can go ahead and lower the trailer, which is going to lower the lunette ring into the hook there. That's good right there.

Now, we got to lower down in to place into that hook, push that back down, and then, place our pin. Overall, super easy to use. I back it up with no issues, stopped right on the dime, dropped it down there, you see the lunette rings down there in that hook. It's nice and secure, it's not going anywhere, especially with that pin in place, and this part last up here. Now, the only thing I would say is it doesn't have some of the features of the other premium ones like, "I like that there's a bumper, I want the other curt ones that you can back into that ring right into, and then, lower it from there." That's really helpful. I like that one. And then, some of the other ones that actually had the ball mount on there too, that way you don't have to switch it out, depending on what your towing. So, if you just want to tow your heavy equipment, you need this, or you have a boat with a coupler. You could hook that up there with a ball mount, and use the same one. But, if you don't have another trailer, you only got to work trailer. It's going to be just fine for that. You don't have to swap anything out. Thanks for hanging out. And I hope this helped..

Curt Pintle Hook for 2" Hitches - 20,000 lbs - C48004

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (307 Customer Reviews)

This 14-1/2" long pintle hook fits inside your 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver so you can quickly and easily equip your vehicle for pintle-style towing. 20,000-lb Capacity. Powder coated forged steel resists rust.


I really like this one. it completely closes around the lunette ring.


Lumber company moved onto the adjacent property to cut it and left me with a mile of crank & yank off-road driving to get in to mine. Time for a pintel! Incredibly fast shipping means no missed weekends of good working weather. Descriptions had just the right info at my fingertips.


Not my first order from E-trailer, great company. It shipped fast and got quick. Quality products,very happy.


Fast service and easy to work with


This hitch is great! I would buy this a gain.


it was just what i needed


2nd one I have ordered. The first is still working great. Lots of towing a 10 ton tag trailer. Great product, pricing and fast delivery! Thanks


As always, etrailer delivers beyond expectations. For the quality and price etrailer is my first stop. The pintle hitch works very well.

After using this hitch for a few thousand miles and always under a load of no less than 16,000 lbs of equipment it has held up to what I expect from etrailer products. I think it will outlast the trailer. Very pleased!!
Bernard - 12/29/2019


A truly outstanding piece of craftsmanship all the way around. At an affordable price yet too. Don't tell anyone but Etrailer could charge double the price for these for big corporate and commercial account businesses who have all the money and wealth and they'd still sell them. But as an individual and hobbyist only on pension style monthly income I'm very glad I get a price break
on such fine craftsmanship even if it really isn't.

Tops! and a Joi and an ESE to use!
Matthew - 08/05/2019


Great quality for my dump trailer.


Three days and i had my order. Next morning removed my old hitch welded on my new adjustable hitch. Nice to find a company that gets it right the first time. I will use you again.


The customer support from etrailer is fantastic. They kept me informed of the progress of my order without me asking. The sales person ACTUALLY did research to answer my technical questions. I ordered a set of traction chains a few months ago and had such a great experience that I decided to use etrailer for my current need of a pintle hitch. Great choice - because their fantastic customer service and SUPER FAST SHIPPING happened for this second order. I'm loyal to after my last two orders - they are excellent.


I like this style better than the universal pintle with the 2 5/16" ball. This doesnt allow the trailer to rattle around much, and I get more responsive braking from my surge brakes. This one is rated at 20k I think. Plenty for me. I would buy one again if I had to.


So I got this receiver for my tow truck. I transport a lot of trailers and equipment. I usually use the ball/pintle combo and don't like the clunking you get when you stop and go. To my surprise there is NO CLUNKING my transports are safe and I will definitely be purchasing more for my other trucks.


Real nice unit.


Pintle hook purchased 1 year ago. Exactly what I was looking for. I needed for a trailer I purchased for hauling cars, mowers, other misc. equipment. I didn't want to rework/change the pintle on the trailer so I just put this on my truck and I was in business. Very satisfied.


I had planned on buying a surplus military trailer and bought this to haul it home. I ended up not purchasing the trailer so haven't used it yet. It is heavy (18 lbs) and appears well made. Surprised to see it was made in China. Not a big fan of Chinese steel, but at this price I guess it's to be expected. Etrailer was a pleasure to deal with. Product shipped fast, was we'll packaged and free shipping. Hard to beat for the money.


Product was exactly as purported on the Website and by Customer Service. In fact, Customer Service did me good. I was looking a much pricier Pintle Hitch and CS recommended the Curt Pintle # C48004. CS hastened shipping because I needed the hitch in a couple days. Thanks etrailer and CS.


I needed a receiver pintle hook for one of my wagons. Everything else I changed over was near 7 tons. This was the closest without going under. Should work out just fine.


My Little Guy Rough Rider off road came with the Pintle ring so I needed this Pintle hook. This was way more hook than I will ever need, but why skimp when the price for this hook was competitive with what others were selling much lower rated hooks for. Shipping was quick and I have used the hook a few times and it is burly!!


A great pintle hook with a high strength rating for the money. I the only thing I would change is the location of the 5/8" pin hole. It needs to be more central in the shank so that the hitch does not stick out the back of the truck so far.


The pintle hitch has worked well for a year now.

The pintle hitch has worked well.
Anthony S - 06/12/2020


Haven't had the opportunity to use the Pintle Hook but the shipping and delivery were great. Arrived right on time and
the item was well wrapped and taped to prevent damage or
loss of any loose parts their may have been.


Excellent product met my specifications for my 1/4 ton trailer application. Good quality finish.

James - 07/06/2020


This is exactly what I wanted and exactly what I need to tow a trailer I recently purchased. I haven’t used it yet, but it heavy duty so I’m sure it’ll work just fine.
This is the first time buying from etrailer. I ordered over the phone. The representative I spoke with was extremely knowledgeable about the product. She was a great help. Thank you Niki!
Shipping was fast. 2 days and it was here. I’ll definitely use etrailer again and would highly recommend this company.

  • What Diameter Lunette Ring Works with Curt Pintle Hook for 2-Inch Hitches C48004
    The Curt Pintle Hook for 2-Inch Hitches # C48004 fits lunette rings with an inside diameter of at least 2-1/2-inches, so if yours is 3-inches inside diameter it will be compatible. This powder-coated forged steel pintle hook resists rust and offers a 20K capacity.

  • Curt Pintle Hitch Rated To 20,000 lb Capacity Compatibility With 10 Ton Trailer
    The Curt Pintle Hook for 2" Hitches - 20,000 lbs, # C48004 will be at its full capacity for a 10 ton trailer, but is rated to handle it. Your 2010 Ram 3500 HD is only rated to tow 12,100 at the bumper unless you have done extensive upgrades in making it a service truck. My concern with this application isn't the pintle hook, but rather your transmission, so I recommend looking into your vehicle capacities with the upgrades and allowing that to limit your towing for safety.

  • What is the Tongue Weight Capacity of Curt Pintle Hook
    Tongue weight isn't considered as much of a factor for pintle hooks because there isn't as much downward force onto the hitch like there is with a standard coupler. With that being said a pintle hook's tongue weight is considered to be 1/4 of the GTW, so for Curt Pintle Hook # C48004 the tongue weight would be 5,000 pounds.

  • What is the Difference Between The 2-1/2 Inch Pintle and a 3 Inch Pintle
    Pintle hitches are made to fit certain sized Lunette rings. The rings that we carry are only available in 2-1/2" or 3" diameter sizes. For example, the Curt Pintle Hook for 2" Hitches # C48004 fits lunette ring couplers with a minimum inner diameter of 2-1/2". If you already have a lunette ring measure the inner diameter and make sure the Pintle hitch you choose will fit the ring. As long as it fits and is rated high enough for your trailer's weight it'll work for you.

  • Pintle Hitch That Fits 2" Receiver and Lunette Ring With 2-1/2" Inner Diameter
    We do have a pintle hook that fits in a 2" hitch and will work with a lunette ring that has an inner diameter of more than 2-1/2", the Curt # C48004. I asked some colleagues and we weren't quite sure what you were referring to in terms of cross-section but if you were referring to the width of the ring itself then the Curt pintle hook would still work. Should you mean something else by cross section or have other questions let me know. I've added a link to a video review of this hook for...

  • Tongue Weight Capacity for Pintle Hook part # C48004
    For the applications that we normally deal with we don't have a trailer hitch that has a 5,000 lb tongue weight capacity. The Pintle Hook part # C48004 does have a 5,000 lb tongue weight capacity though so if you have a heavy duty vehicle that was rated for that you'd be able to take advantage of that.

  • How To Tow Military Trailer with Lunette Ring Using 2" Hitch
    It sounds like you are looking for a hitch mounted pintle hook to use the lunette ring mounted on your military trailer. If that is the case then the Curt Pintle Hook part # C48004 is what I recommend. That said, there really isn't one that will be more secure than another.

  • Dimensions of the Curt Pintle Hook # C48004
    Definitely! The measurement of the circular area when the hook is completely closed on the # C48004 is 2.03" across. As far as the distance between the narrowest point of the top and lower of the opening when the hook is open, that measurement is 2.5" across. Both of these measurements were conducted with calipers. I went ahead and attached pictures of these measurements for your convenience.

  • Is There A Shorter Length Option For The Curt Forged Receiver Mount Pintle Hook for 2 Inch Hitches?
    The reason for the long neck on the curt # C48004 is to help prevent your trailer from hitting your vehicle if ever jack knifed. Sometimes trailers using the pintle setup have a bit bulkier coupler so it could come in contact with your vehicle a little easier compared to the sometimes smaller 2" ball couplers. The only options we have for the 2" hitch are going to stick out just as much unless you go with a different type of pintle setup. If your concerns are running into the pintle whenever...

  • Pintle Hook Recommendation with 20k Capacity
    Sounds like you are looking for a pintle hook style ball mount to tow your trailer that weighs right at 19,500 lbs when fully loaded. The part # C48004 will fit a 2 inch hitch and has a 20k capacity and the # C48010 will fit a 2-1/2 inch hitch and also has a 20k capacity. Either should work well but you will need to measure the size of the hitch opening on your truck to determine which you would need.

  • Pintle Hook Compatible With 3 Inch Lunette Ring And 2011 Chevy 2500 HD Trailer Hitch Receiver
    If you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver opening, the Curt Pintle Hook for 2-1/2" Hitches - 20,000 lbs # C48010 will fit. If you have a 2 inch receiver opening, you will want the Curt Pintle Hook for 2" Hitches - 20,000 lbs, # C48004. Either will work with a 3 inch lunette ring.

  • 2-Inch Pintle Hook for Use with M614 Military Surplus Trailer
    Military equipment, including trailers, does tend to be built to a pretty high capacity. The 20K Curt 2-Inch Pintle Hook # C48004 is a good example. Pintle hitches are often found in industrial, agricultural and of course military applications so they tend to have pretty substantial capacities. The lighter side of overkill is safety margin, a good thing always, but if 20K seems a bit much for your camping application then you might prefer Tow Ready 10K pintle # TR63043 or Curt # C48005.

  • Recommended Pintle Hitch for a 825l Gator with 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    We have a couple options for you. I recommend the Curt Pintle Hook for 2" Hitches - 10,000 lbs # C48005 or # TR63043 either of which will fit in a 2 inch receiver as you stated. This is rated for well over what a UTV can handle. We also have the Curt Pintle Hook for 2" Hitches - 20,000 lbs # C48004 which is rated for double that capacity.

  • Options for a Pintle Hook to Connect to a Trailer with 8 Inches of Rise
    As you obviously have already learned there are a lot of variables into building a trailer. And I can't tell you what is or isn't completely safe in your exact circumstances. I highly recommend having your setup evaluated by a professional welder who has experience with trailers. Some of the components you're trying to combine may be just fine but only someone with experience and ability to test such products can really tell you that. I can't recommend using # RP45294 with # 63023....
