Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45290 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C45290. This is the Curt Ball Mount for 2-inch hitches, rated at 7,500 pounds. This ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank is going to slide into your vehicle's hitch receiver and the ball platform's going to provide a good mounting point for your hitch ball. Hitch balls are going to be sold separately. You can see a lot of different options right here at etrailer.com.

You can use this in either the drop or rise position. Both positions are available to help insure level towing. It's made from a sturdy steel construction. It's going to feature a nice hallow shank here on the backside as well as chrome plating, so it's going to stand up well against rust and corrosion. To get this secured inside of your hitch, you're going to need to use a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. Curt's going to sell that separately.

You can find that here on our website using part number C21500. That's going to be for your standard 5/8-inch pin and clip. Or for your hitch pin and lock, you can use part number 7683. This portion right here is designed to work with 2-inch by 2-inch trailer hitch receivers. Again, the gross towing weight, max capacity is going to be 7,500 pounds.

Tongue weight is going to have a capacity of 750 pounds. A few measurements to go over with you real quick. Measuring from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of hitch ball hole, that's going to give us a measurement center on center of about 8 inches. The distance that we have from center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank, that's going to give us a measurement of 2 1/2 inches. With it installed in the rise position, that would be this position here, measuring from the top of shank to the top of the platform is going to give us about 3-quarter-inch or 1-inch rise. In the drop position, measuring from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform, that drop is going to 2 and 1-quarter of an inch.

The ball hole diameter on this particular mount is going to give us a diameter of 1 inch. Keep that measurement in mind when choosing a hitch ball. You want to make sure that the shank of the hitch ball matches with the ball hole diameter of the mount that you want. Curt's going to cover this with a limited lifetime warranty. Real quick I just wanted to show you how it would install inside of your hitch. Have a couple of receivers here today. Simply just want to slide in the shank until we get our pin holes to line up with one another. I'm going to insert my 5/8 inch pin and clip. You can also use a hitch pin and lock. Whatever works for your application. Just like that, we're ready to go. Just need to get our hitch ball on there and torque to specifications. Then we'll be ready to make our connection and get on the road. That's going to do it for today's review of part number C45290. This is the Curt Ball Mount for 2-inch hitches. .

Review from a similar Curt Chrome Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Completely rusted after just 3-4 months. I bought the Chrome so I wouldnt have an ugly rusted ball. But nope. This one rusted just as fast, if not faster. It makes my truck look like crap.


Comments
Sorry to hear about this. This item does need maintained and should not be left on all of the time. Here is a help article explaining the maintenance:

Review from a similar Curt Chrome Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Purchased because I wanted something that looked a little better than the standard black ball mount and couldn’t find the size I wanted in aluminum. I used it 3 times last season and put it away for the winter in my garage. It was never on the truck while salt was on the road. Pulled it out the other day and it is a disgusting rusty mess. Attempts to clean off the rust were unsuccessful it was that bad. Total waste of money
BTW the picture is post cleaning, it was even worse before


Comments
Allan, thank you for your review. If you live in a humid area or store the ball mount in a humid environment it may rust. I would recommend to store the ball mount in a ball mount bag when not in use such as part # ETBMB
etrailer Ball Mount Bag
$15.99
. I also recommend purchasing an aluminum ball mount such as part # DTBM4400
Flash Solid Aluminum Ball Mount - 4" Drop, 3" Rise - 10,000 lbs
$79.88
. This fastway ball mount has a 4 inch , 3 inch rise, supports up to 14,000 pounds and takes a 1 inch diameter shank hitch ball. One of our installers owns part # DTBM4400
Flash Solid Aluminum Ball Mount - 4" Drop, 3" Rise - 10,000 lbs
$79.88
. He kept the ball mount in his hitch receiver for a year, exposed to the elements and it showed very insignificant signs of corrosion. I have also attached a link about rust prevention.

Review from a similar Curt Chrome Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


No rusting, been in truck hitch entire time and still easily come off if needed. The 5 3/4" drop is a bit much for some of my trailers. Would be better if they made a 5" drop.


Comments
We do have a ball mount with a 5 inch : item # C43KR
Curt RockerBall Anti-Rattle Towing Kit - 2" Ball - 5" Drop, 4" Rise - 7,500 lbs
$130.99

Review from a similar Curt Chrome Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


You can tell it's a well made durable hitch. I needed a 2" drop so my RV would pull level and this hitch did the trick. The chrome hitch also looks so much better than my old back one.

Great quality on flat steel bar, well polished out, and chromed. Square tube could have been deburred a little better on inside the open end. But overall everything claimed to be and more for fair price.
