Video Transcript for Review of Curt Pintle Hitch - Bolt On Pintle Hook - Standard - C48231

Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this Curt bolt on pintle hook. Has a 60,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now this pintle hook will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It provides this attachment point for your lunette ring coupler, and it is designed to fit lunette ring couplers that have an insight hole diameter of two and a half inches or three inches.

And basically what you would do is to hook it up. Just remove this safety pin, and then you'll have your handle right here that you can pull up on. And when you pull up on it, it'll release it and you can open up the hook. And then just like that, it's open. Your lunette ring, which will be on your trailer, you just dropped the lunette ring over the hook like that.

And then all you have to do is just push down and that'll lock it into place. And then for safety, you take this tethered pin, slide it through the hole all the way, and then clip that and that will keep it from opening.Now, this is a nice, strong, forged steel construction. You can see has a nice rust resistant high gloss powder coat finish. The safety pin we mentioned is tethered, and it is included to keep that pintle hook locked over the lunette ring.Now, this is a bolt on installation. It bolts to a pintle hook mounting plate with the included hardware.

Now that pintle hook mounting plate is not included. We do sell that separately on our website. The mounting hardware that is included includes four, five eighths inch diameter bolts, washers, and the nuts are all included for installation. A few specs again on this. The gross towing weight capacity is 60,000 pounds.

Tongue weight capacity is 12,000 pounds.Last thing I want to do is give you some mounting hole dimensions right here on the back. We'll measure center to center. So if we go horizontal, your mounting holes, center to center, is right at three and three eighths inches. And if we go vertical, center to center, it's right at one and three quarter inches. But again, just to demonstrate how to open up, we'll remove the tethered pin, just like that, pull up on that handle. And when you pull up on it or release it. Drop your lunette ring right over the hook there, and then just push that down. It will keep it into place and for extra security, just slide that on and flip it. But that should do it for the review on this Curt bolt on pintle hook with the 60,000 pound gross towing weight capacity.

Curt Pintle Hook - Bolt On - 60,000 lbs - C48231

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (396 Customer Reviews)

Tow up to 60,000 lbs with this solid, forged steel pintle hook. It bolts onto a pintle mounting plate (sold separately) with the included hardware. Durable, black powder coat resists rust.

by:

As described, but no information on the hole diameter on the website, so the Curt pintle mounting bolts don't fit without drilling.



by:

I ordered next day and part was at my shop early so I could get customer up and running. Quality part with hardware and torque specs.



by:

Well made for sure. Only complaint is that when shipping heavy steel parts please package the hardware better. I had to chase the threads on 1 of the bolts as they were slightly deformed from being mashed by the hitch.
This is a manufacturer thing not an etrailer problem. The box was sealed when it arrived.
etrailer's packaging was excellent.

As always, quality & great service

Great company fastest shipping i found.

GREAT PRODUCT



by:

GOOD QUALITY PRODUCT HAVE BEEN USING A COUPLE OF YEAR



by:

Very heavy duty, the bolts that come with this were larger than the holes in the recommended rise/drop mount. No big deal for me as I have the tools and bits to enlarge the holes but for someone who doesnt, they would have to take it somewhere to be done.



by:

Project included cutting/drilling and welding 1" thick plate on rear of 16 yard dump truck. Truck is used to pull 550B dozier and backhoe.

See what our Experts say about this CURT Pintle Hitch

  • What is the Standard Bolt Pattern for Pintle Hooks
    Most pintle hooks use a standard bolt pattern which is 3-3/8" horizontally center to center and 1-3/4" vertically center to center (see photo). Therefore, the Pintle Hook part # C48231 would be a direct fit and work well for you. It also comes with all the mounting hardware needed for installation. I have attached a review video of the above hook for you as well.

  • What is the Capacity of the Curt Pintle Hook C48231
    As long as the total weight of the trailer and it's cargo are no more than 60,000-lbs then you can use the Curt Pintle Hook, Bolt-On, 60K # C48231 to connect the truck to the trailer. It sounds like you've got a 40,000-lbs capacity trailer, so this should work just fine. I've linked a short review video of this pintle hitch for you to have a look at, as well.

  • Weight Capacity of Curt Pintle Hook C48231
    The Curt Pintle Hook # C48231 is indeed rated for 60K GTW and 12K vertical load. I confirmed these specs with Curt. Those are high weight ratings but keep in mind that the nature of a pintle hook, which has a large amount of flat steel surface area to couple to the mount, disperses that load across many square inches. Plus, this hook's Grade 8 hardware is stronger than the Grade 5 hardware used for most standard bumper hitches.

  • Weld-On Pintle Hitch Plate For A 2021 Kenworth T880
    The Buyers Products Weld-On Pintle Hitch Plate # 3371809043 is definitely going to be your best bet as far as a pintle mount for a 2021 Kenworth T880. It is not custom fitted for any specific vehicle, but it can be fabricated to fit virtually any application. We often recommend this plate for very similar trucks like Mack, International and Kenworth. Since there are no custom fitted mounts available, the # 3371809043 will be your best bet. It can be used with any standard bolt-on pintle...

  • What Surface Should the 60k Pintle Hook C48231 be Attached to Ensure Full Capacity
    Curt does not have a minimum plate thickness that they recommend for the # C48231 to ensure its full capacity, instead they recommend attaching it to a surface that is also rated for as much capacity as needed. So, if the bumper/plate is rated for 60k as well then it would have its full capacity.

  • Mounting Bolts For 60k Curt Pintle Hook C48231
    We do offer the replacement mounting bolts for the 60,000 lb Curt Pintle Hook # C48231. I checked with Curt and they are 5/8" diameter Grade 8 bolts, and the complete kit is the following: - Curt Bolt Kit # C48332 This kit is the required bolt kit to use with this pintle hook according to Curt, and includes the four bolts, as well as lock nuts and washers.

  • Pintle Hook Recommendation for Buyers Products Fabricators Hitch Plate
    The Buyers Products Fabricators Hitch Plate part # 3371809027A is designed to work with pintle hooks that have a 1-3/4" x 3-3/8" wide bolt pattern like the Bolt-On Pintle Hook part # C48231. This is a standard pattern that most pintle hooks use so if you have a few already they should fit.

  • What is the Bolt Hole Pattern for Mounting the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13018
    The bolt hole pattern center on center for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13018 is 3-1/4 inches horizontally and 2-1/4 inch vertically. This varies from the 3-3/8 inch horizontal and 1-3/4 inch vertical measurements that a typical Pintle Hitch, like part # C48231, has. This Curt trailer hitch receiver fits the following vehicles: 1998 - 2002 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML320 2003 - 2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 1999 - 2001 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML430 2002 - 2005 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML500 You...

  • Is it Normal for Pintle Hook Towing Setup to Make Noise When Starting/Stopping
    The standard size for Lunette rings is 3 inch like what you have. While I am not totally certain what hook you have it's likely you did buy the correct size. Due to the looser connections of Pintle/Lunette setups some noise is to be expected. Especially if the hook is the style with a hitch ball too as the hook doesn't end up as smooth. The quietest setups are ones like the part # C48231 which have a smoother hook.

  • High Capacity Ball Mount Recommendation for Heavy Boat Trailer
    The highest capacity ball mount we offer is the BulletProof adjustable ball mount part # ED30OFFSET which has a 36,000 lb capacity when used with the 2-5/16 inch ball. This requires a 3 inch trailer hitch. If your trailer really weighs 18k it would seem pretty unlikely you have a 7,000 lb tongue weight since tongue weight is typically 10-15 percent of total trailer weight. Even our high capacity pintle that has a 60k trailer weight capacity # C48231 only has a 12k tongue weight capacity.

  • Availability of 3 inch Hitch Pintle Hook Setup
    For a 3 inch hitch pintle hook setup Bhmllc what you'll need is the Super Titan Forged Pintle Hook Plate part # RP38186 which fits the 3 inch hitch size and has plate that a bolt on hook setup can attach to like with the Curt # C48231. We don't have a way to get the part number you mentioned.

  • Inside Dimension of Curt C48231 Pintle Hook
    The Curt # C48231 pintle hook will indeed work with a 3 x 1-5/8 lunette ring like # 337BDB1394. At the narrowest part, the inside width is 1-3/4 inches, which widens out to 2 inches, as shown in the provided photo.

  • Recommended 1/4" Locking Pin For A Curt Pintle Hook # C48231
    After looking through all of the 1/4" locking pins we carry, I believe the etrailer Adjustable Trailer Coupler Latch Lock # e98883 will be the best option for locking your Curt Pintle Hook # C48231. The span is adjustable to 1/2", 1", 1-1/2", 2", or 2-1/2". The 2" span will be as close as we can get to 1-7/8". That will be your best bet for a lock that will be more flush up against the side of the pintle hook.

  • Availability of Pintle Hitch Mount for 2 Inch Hitch With Highest Weight Capacity
    The highest weight rated pintle hitch mount I have that will fit in a 2 inch hitch receiver is the Convert-A-Ball, part # PH2. rated for up to 16,000 pounds. Curt pintle hitch # C48231 does not fit a 2 inch receiver.
