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.

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.

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.

Working great I use the fixed straight hitch when I need a little more hitch height or the adjustable hitch depending on which application works better.

Review from a similar Forged Receiver Pintle in Pintle Hitch


Bought this for my 2014 Jeep Rubicon to tow an M416 military trailer. The hitch gave me the exact platform I needed to clear the spare tire (with 1" of vertical space to spare) . . . and keep my trailer level. Also added the Curt Pintle Hook - Bolt On - 10,000 lbs - C48205 and again, the hitch allows the top of the pintle (when closed) to clear the tire. Both items I bought came expertly packaged in a stout box, quickly and with free shipping. etrailer rocked it!

Haley was awesome. She helped me confirm the parts I needed were compatible and took my order over the phone. She followed up with me once the package arrived to make sure I was satisfied. Will definitely be ordering from e-trailers again.

Exactly what I needed to level pulling my military trailer. The pintle hitch bolted to the mounting plate within a few minutes. Now I can get into the back country with my FJ pulling a trailer made possible by the your pintle hitch/mounting plate Combination. Thanks

Review from a similar Forged Receiver Pintle in Pintle Hitch


High quality for a great price. Hard to find 2.5" receiver pintle hitch for my new Dodge Ram 2500. Very heavy duty, will liky outlast the truck. This company is one of the best I have ever dealt with. The only complaint I ever had was a request for better packaging even though nothing was ever damaged. Later orders have had improved packaging.

Works great for lunette trailer and tow straps
