Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - A-82 Review

Today were going to take a look at the Curt 2-inch hitch ball, part number A-82. This is a 2-inch diameter hitch ball made of stainless steel with wrench flats. It has a shank diameter of of an inch, a shank length of 2 1/8 of an inch. It is intended for a drawbar with a ball platform thickness of 3/8 of an inch to 1 1/4 of an inch, and has a weight capacity of 3,500 pounds. Now were going to show you how this would work using our ball mount and our trailer hitch demonstrator. You would just slide the shank into the ball hole.

The nut and washer come with this item, and you would put the washer on first, and then proceed to finger tighten the nut on there. Once you have that tightened you will get your wrench and then tighten it the remainder of the way so this can be used to tow your trailer. That should do it for the Curt 2-inch hitch ball, part number A-82.

Etrailer is my go to store for trailer parts. The curts 2” hitch ball is very high quality machined stainless steel. If your a person that doesn’t like rusty hitch balls than this is a product you will definitely like.

Good sturdy ball...much better than what I find at the auto parts stores. I also like the longer shank, so I can tighten down stronger. Great recommendation from Tyra.

This 2" hitch ball is made of quality stainless steel and I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. I towed a RangeRunner Runaway camper 1200 miles from Summerfield, Florida to Rochester, New York and the hitch ball was great! Thank you etrailer!!

Love the large product selection at etrailer. Bought a (stainless steel) 2" ball, and (5-1/2 inch rise) drawbar for my 1-1/4" hitch. That high rise drawbar is not commonly carried in stock. Both items were in stock at etrailer. Standard delivery was fast, and tracking number was provided. Both items work great on initial checkout. Quality of the products are good, and I don't expect any problems with them in the future.



- A-82
by:

All three items (hitch ball, extra long ball mount and hitch receiver lock came very quickly, packaged very well and are of high quality and are reasonably priced. The extra long ball mount has solved my problem of having to backup the car into the water. I have looked for it locally to no avail but have found it on etrailer.com. In short I am very happy with the product and the service.

How could this product be anything less than stellar? It fits my class I hitch mount, and it allows me to tow my light duty trailer without me ever having to even think about it becoming a rusty eyesore on my car.

When installing the ball, the instructions call for a torque of 140 pounds, so you'll need a torque wrench. This is a good, solid product.

    You'e in luck as there is a trailer hitch receiver that is a fit for a 2020 Hyundai Venue, which is the following: - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C57CR This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver, and is a complete bolt-on installation with no drilling needed.

    I looked up the owners manual for a 2010 Ford Mustang and it states it is rated to two up to 1,000 lbs. There are no air shocks available though you should not need them; when we installed the Curt hitch on a 2010 Ford Mustang it was more than 11 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver which isn't super high but is definitely okay to tow with. We do have the hitch, wiring and rest of the set up you need in order to tow if you'd like. Here are the parts you'd need for your...

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Fit on 2016 Subaru Impreza Hatchback
    We do have a Curt trailer hitch that fits your 2016 Subaru Impreza hatchback, but the one you asked about with a 2" receiver won't fit as it is for a Subaru Crosstrek (there are only 1-1/4" receivers available for your Impreza). The Curt hitch that does fit your Impreza hatchback is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11286. If you are looking to do some light towing with this hitch and your '16 Impreza, you will need a few other parts, including a trailer wiring harness and ball mount....

  • Hitch Solution for 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI that Can Do Ball Mount Rise of 9 inches
    I really wish there was a good solution for your problem but with Class I hitches like what you have there isn't a way to use a taller rise ball mount. The added length and leverage of the taller ball mount just is too much stress on the lower capacity hitch. Aside from going to a 2 inch hitch I really don't have a solution I can provide.

The ball mount you have to use with the Curt hitch is the part # C45521 and then for a 2 inch hitch ball you'd need the # A-82. You'll also need trailer wiring as well so that you can control the trailer's taillights. For that the best option is the Tekonsha ZCI kit part # 119250KIT which...

  • Recommendation for a 2 Inch Ball for Ball Mount 3593 with Class I Trailer Hitch on 2008 Nissan Versa
    The ball mount you have, # 3593, requires a ball with a 3/4 inch diameter shank. For a compatible 2 inch ball I usually recommend # 19258. But if you want a ball that isn't going to corrode then # A-82 is an excellent choice because it is stainless steel. Basically if you won't be using the ball much I recommend # 19258 and if you will be using it a lot then I recommend # A-82.

  • Is a 2 inch or 2-5/16 inch Ball a Standard Size for a Hitch Ball
    2 inch or 2-5/16 inch diameter balls are pretty standard sized balls, it is not surprising that the coupler on the 1997 Coleman camper accepts either one of those sizes. For a 2 inch ball I would recommend a Hitch Ball with 2 inch Diameter and Medium Shank, part # 19247. If you need a ball mount as well I would recommend a Ball Mount 2-3/4 inch Rise or 4 inch Drop, part # 2753.

  • What Size Hitch Ball Will Fit my 2002 Chevrolet S-10 Bumper Ball Hole
    In order to make a proper selection for a hitch ball, you will need to find out what diameter size ball your trailer needs. It should be stamped on the trailer coupler or frame, either 1-7/8 or 2 inch. All bumper ball holes are 3/4 of an inch, so you will need to pick a ball with a 3/4 inch shank diameter. The ball you were looking at, part # A-82, is a 3/4 inch shank diameter and is a 2 inch diameter ball. If you need a 1-7/8 inch ball, you would use part # A-80. Those are our only...

    I can help you figure out what which ball mount you will need for your Mazda and Coleman popup camper. There's some specific measurements to take to determine the rise/drop of ball mount you need. Measure from the inside top of the receiver tube to the ground. Then, with the trailer jacked so that it's level, measure the distance from the underside of the coupler to the ground. The difference between the two measurements is the rise/drop needed.

  • Coupler on Coleman Pop-Up Trailer is Difficult to Un Hitch on Uneven Terrain
    First let's begin with the obvious. Make sure you're using the correct trailer ball for the coupler. The required ball size should be stamped into the metal of the coupler. Secondly, make sure the latching mechanism is not excessively worn and has been lubricated. Finally, how uneven is the ground you're speaking of? In order to latch/unlatch properly, the coupler can't be bound up on the ball.

    In Europe trailers couple to metric balls. The common European ball size is 50mm which is very close to a US 2 inch ball.

The top of the coupler may say what size ball to use but given the age of the classis trailer it may or may not be decipherable. Another option is to replace the coupler with a new one so you...
