CURT Trailer Hitch Ball

  • Trailer Hitch Ball
  • 2-5/16 Inch Diameter Ball
  • 1 Inch Diameter Shank
  • Shock Absorbing Ball
  • 12000 lbs GTW
  • CURT

Curt RockerBall with ShockDrop technology bolts onto your standard ball mounts to provide comfort and control while towing. Chrome ball has a 1-1/4" diameter x 2-1/8" long shank. Anti-swivel, forged steel base has black powder coat finish.


Features:

  • Hitch ball provides a connection point for your trailer's coupler
    • Fits most existing ball mounts
  • Integrated ShockDrop technology
    • Cushioned isolators reduce rattling and vibration for a more comfortable ride
    • Reduces shock loads to the vehicle during sudden braking or acceleration
    • Minimizes stress on tow vehicle's suspension and brakes for extended longevity
  • Fine threads provide tight, strong grip
  • Anti-swivel base is constructed of forged steel for dependable towing power
  • Durable carbide black powder coat finish on base
  • Corrosion-resistant chrome finish on ball
  • Virtually maintenance-free with no airbags or bearings to service
    • Built-in grease zerk makes it easy to lubricate when necessary
  • Tested for safety to meet SAE J684 specifications
  • Lock washer and nut included


Specs:

  • Ball diameter: 2-5/16"
  • Shank dimensions: 2-1/8" long x 1-1/4" diameter
  • Weight capacity: 12,000 lbs
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Note: All RockerBall hitch balls will sit 1-1/2" higher than a standard hitch ball due to the shock absorbing base.

The mounting platform on your ball mount must be at least 3/8" thick and the hole size must not be more than 1/16" larger in diameter than the ball's threaded shank.


Towing can be brutal, especially when your setup is outfitted with standard, metal-on-metal components. Steel and aluminum can only absorb so much vibration and chucking, so every time you hit a bump in the road, that shock gets transferred to the rest of your rig, leaving it vulnerable to wear and tear. Another unfortunate side effect is an uncomfortable ride for you and your passengers.


Protect your truck and trailer from road shock, vibrations, and rattling - and stay comfortable while you drive - with the shock-absorbing Curt RockerBall hitch ball.


Shock Absorbing ShockDrop Technology

Curt RockerBall with SockDrop Technology

The RockerBall hitch ball features Curt's innovative ShockDrop technology, which is engineered to suppress vibrations and rattling while you're towing. When you hit a bump, the ball compresses around the flexible, polyurethane core. This durable material absorbs excess shock at the coupling point so that it doesn't transfer from the truck to your trailer or vice versa. The result is increased control and comfort as you tow, as well as less wear and tear on your towing setup.


Premium Construction

Curt RockerBall Construction

This hitch ball is built to last with its forged steel construction and durable powder coat finish. The flexible, shock-absorbing polyurethane core withstands extreme heat for long-lasting performance, and the chrome-plated ball resists corrosion.


Curt RockerBall Zerk Fitting

The built-in zerk allows you to lubricate the isolator core when necessary, ensuring quiet and trouble-free operation.

Received product before due date however, both our WD Hitches do not have the standard piece to allow the Anti-Rotation Plate to be useful. Pictures attached.
Checking with etrailer to see what can be done before modifying either the ball or the hitches. Only other issue was packaging, it was well packed on bottom side but not on top which allowed the product to distort the box it was shipped in but it did come fully in tact with no visible harm. Mentioning this for future delivery of such items.


Comments
I was able to contact Curt and the Curt RockerBall is not compatible with weight distribution systems. It is only compatible with a ball mount that has a 1-14 diameter ball shank hole.

Good idea, though actual towing feels chaotic. Pulling a 4,500 pound camper trailer with a F150 - Max Tow Package and this hitch causes the trailer to surge back and forth when braking, accelerating and/or rolling over bumps in the road. I don't know if my hitch is defective or not, but I will not be using this hitch anymore. The other issue is, when torquing the ball hitch to the specified 450 ft/lbs - the flanges that are supposed to hold the ball in place bent and I had to find an alternative to secure it from turning.

All seems great delivery was excellent product looks great but I haven’t installed it yet thought the pin was with it so do you have a very hard material pin that goes with the forged ball mount.
Let me know asap
Thx

Took it out on its first trip and it worked flawlessly. Was skeptical it would make such a big difference but it did. Really lesser the jolting and jarring that made my wife so nervous every time we took the trailer out.

Changed over from the conventional Ball. Noticeable difference after installing Rockerball. Makes the ride quieter and when braking no noises and no trailer play when braking or accelerating. recommended Product.

Works Great. No wear or tear on the Rockerball and I’ve used it well over 25 times. Good as Mew.

Review from a similar RockerBall in Trailer Hitch Ball


Ball is not mounted. Pictures and videos show ball mounted. And when I have bought a “kit” in the past, the ball was mounted.
I can’t attach the ball myself and only reason I purchased from eTrailer was that pictures implied that the ball would be mounted.


Comments
This ball mount comes to us from the manufacturer as a kit, without the ball mounted to the ball mount. We do have a ball mount with a 4 inch that comes with the ball torqued. It is part # C45154

Review from a similar RockerBall in Trailer Hitch Ball


Like most any lock they can be a little temperamental after being out in weather a while, but a shot of lock lube or WD40 takes care of that. "Training the lock to your given key is a breeze, and I definitely like the convenience of not having to try and recall which key is needed to use them!

We have a small trailer pulling behind an SUV. This really cuts down the rocking as we drive.

Nice solid piece with weight. The only issue I have is that the ball is only secured down with a bolt and not lockable to prevent theft.

See what our Experts say about this CURT Trailer Hitch Ball

  • Will Curt Rockerball Fit on Weight Distribution Head?
    The Curt RockerBall Shock Absorbing 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1-1/4" Diameter Shank - Chrome - 12K # C29FR does not fit weight distribution heads because the base of the ball is meant to fit the rectangular platform. If you remove that part of the base it may work but it also could rotate so the shock absorbing may not work correctly.

  • Solution for Preventing Rattling Between Trailer Hitch Ball and Coupler
    We have the perfect solution for you with the Curt RockerBall, part # C29FR for 2-5/16" ball or # C40047 for a 2" ball. It completely changes your towing experience by reducing jerking and jarring while towing. It absorbs the movement and rattling of your trailer at the coupling point to provide a smoother ride and increased control over the vehicle and trailer. It also reduces the amount stress placed on your vehicle, receiver hitch, brakes and suspension system. Note: All RockerBall...

  • Can Curt Rockerball be Used with Weight Distribution System
    I have a cushioned solution for your WD setup but you are correct the Curt Rockerball is not to be used with weight distribution systems according to Curt. The movement that the ball allows and the stresses of the WD system just don't allow the two to fit together and work. Instead you can use the cushioned weight distribution shank part # GY54FR for a 2 inch hitch which the head of your weight distribution system can attach to. There isn't any other option to cushion a weight distribution...

  • Is Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount Compatible With Curt RockerBall?
    The Curt RockerBall Shock Absorbing 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1-1/4" Diameter Shank # C29FR will not work with the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 10,000 lbs # AMSC2 which has a 1 inch diameter ball hole. Using the Polyurethane of the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount as well as a similar design in the ball may actually mitigate the shock absorption. One or the other would help but sometimes using two parts with the same thing will work against each other instead...

  • Will the Curt RockerBall Fit on the C45340 Ball Mount?
    As long as the Curt RockerBall has a 1 1/4 shank, like the # C29FR, you will have no issue installing it on the # C45340. With you using a ball that moves though, I highly suggest adding on the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061. This will keep the # C45340 completely stabile while in use.

  • Shock Absorbing Hitch Ball with 1-1/4 Shank and 2-5/16 Ball for 2 Ball Mounts
    If the trailer requires a 2-5/16 ball, you don't want to use the 2" ball to pull the trailer. The 2-5/16 ball has a larger shank so it is not interchangeable with the Curt RockerBall Anti-Rattle Towing Kit - 2" Ball - 8-1/4" Long Mount - 7,500 lbs Item # C63KR I recommend Curt RockerBall Shock Absorbing 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1-1/4" Diameter Shank - Chrome - 12K Item # C29FR and Curt Solid Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 3" Rise, 4" Drop - 10" Long - 12K Item # C45313.

  • Can I Use the 2-5/16" Curt Rockerball with My Weight Distribution System?
    I have an answer for you. Unfortunately, we confirmed with Curt that the 2-5/16 Rockerball models # C29FR and # C82KR cannot be used with a weight distribution system. If you need a 2-5/16 inch ball, I recommend the Draw-Tite # 63847 if your weight distribution system requires a 1-inch diameter shank or the Draw-Tite # 63840 if your system requires a ball with a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank.

  • Can Curt RockerBall be Used with Weight Distribution
    Good question. I checked with Curt because I haven't had this come up yet but unfortunately no, the RockerBall, part # C29FR, cannot be used with a weight distribution system. Looking at your pictures I think you have a Blue Ox SwayPro system, like part # BXW0753. If I'm correct then you need a standard 2-5/16 inch ball with either a 1 or 1-1/4 inch shank. Beyond that the choice is yours so part # 63847 is a good option for a a 1 inch or part # 63840 for a 1-1/4 inch.

  • Which Provides More Cushioning from Ball Mount Convert-A-Ball Vs Curt Rebellion XD
    The Convert a Ball ball mounts like the # AMSC4HD and the Curt Rebellion XD # part # C45949-2516 offer cushioning in a similar way (front to back cushioning) but the Curt Rebellion is going to offer superior cushioning to the Convert a Ball. The reason I say this is because most of the time your ball mount would not be free to move enough for the cushioning to be effective since the tongue weight of the trailer on the ball mount prevents movement where it would be needed. With the Rebellion...
