Video Transcript for Curt 2 Inch Hitch Ball Review C40034

Today, we are going to be taking a look at the CURT trailer ball. So this trailer ball is a little special. What makes it special Is this right here. You can actually get two inches of rise, just by putting this ball on our ball mount. So our ball mount is a four-inch drop and a two-inch rise. But with this, we're actually kind of swapping it around.

We're going to have a two-inch drop and if we flipped it around, we'll have a four-inch rise. So that's kind of crazy how just one ball can completely change what your ball mounts gonna do for you. So if you liked the ball mount, or you just like, "It gets the job done, why do I need a new one I just need an extra inch or two." This is really going to shine for that. We also have some that are only going to be about an inch. So whatever tickles your fancy, just go ahead and grab whatever size is gonna be right for you.

This one is a two-inch rise, but it's also a two-inch ball. So just look on your coupler, make sure it's the same size. And then also take into consideration, that this thing has a capacity of 6,000 pounds. So with our ball mounts 7,500, and then the ball is 6,000. So the lower number of the two is going to be the max of what we can use with this setup.

So 6,000 pounds for this setup. You wanna make sure that you pair that up. And that's one of the things you need to kind of look for. Also, another thing you need to look for is the hole on your ball mount that you have or the ball mount that you're gonna get it needs to be an inch in diameter because the shank is an inch in diameter. We don't want it any bigger because there'll be so much play.

And then anything smaller, of course, is not really going to fit. So that's two things that you need to look for whenever you kind of pairing this up because this thing by itself isn't going to do anything. You need a ball. We have a lot of different options on our website, so just figure out what you need, figure out exactly what you want, and then etrailer's here to hook you up. There really isn't a whole lot when it comes to trailer balls, this was just super awesome. 'Cause, it has that extra rise there. Made of steel. And if you we're to maybe add something else to the setup, just grab some grease just to keep this ball nice and shiny for all the years of use that you're going to do with it. All in all, this is gonna be a great option for ya. And again, this was the CURT two-inch rise, two-inch trailer ball..

Product as described and customer service was great as always!


This was exactly what I needed and it was shipped very fast. Great service.


exactly as shown. video of the ball answered questions that I had. easy tightening. Some reviews stated that the ball didnt have cuts for tightening for two wrenches one to tighten the other to keep it from turning. I didnt have a problem one lock washer is chinsed down flat your good. Put it in your hitch for a quarter more turn and your good. with 2" drop this allowed it to become zero drop which was my goal . ordered from etrailer before and will if need in the future. live in cali so it took a few days but it was shipped out a couple hours after I ordered it. Now my bassboat trailer is level

Stan M.


Works great leveled out my trailer. Now alls good. Exactly what I needed.


I had a stealth hitch on my previous car, and a custom trailer for the track. I bought a stealth hitch for my new car, but it sits lower. Etrsiler worked at me to combine a high rise snap in to my hitch and a two inch riser ball that brought it up to the previous car height


Appears to be excellent quality. Installed easily and will raise the front of my trailer to level it without modifying my hitch

Charles G.


Is the perfect height to level my trailer. However did seem to start rusting in a short time


I needed to raise my tongue height to make trailer tow level. This looks like it will do the job. Thanks. etrailer was quick and convenient, got the ball 2 days earlier than promised.

Phil L.


Just fine, thanks.


Exactly what I needed for my 4 wheeler to keep the tongue of the trailer from being too low. The price was good and the delivery was quick. The only thing I had to do was to enlarge the hole to fit the one inch shank. Thanks etrailer for having what I needed.



Still working out great a year later. The trailer tongue does not hit the ground when I tow it with my four wheeler.


Chrome finish is poor Works fine


My popup trailer sits at about neutral to my Tacoma TRD. With a standard hitch it would sit too low/too high depending on orientation. This riser hitch ball is the perfect solution and now my popup is within 3/4" of level to my Tacoma. There are however two bad details about this ball: The design is poor because there is no wrench flat on the body to help tighten the nut. There is no other way than clamping in a vise to tighten the nut. Second, even with a rag, the substandard plating wore off when tightened in the vise. This exposed the copper substrate plating, which will corrode. I had to cover the exposed area with 2 part epoxy to prevent corrosion. I am a huge fan of e-trailer. This product fills my need, but the quality is below average.


Great quality, Excellent chrome plate over copper plate base on the steel. No problem as long as you can access the nut to tighten it. However, in my application the nut is captured in a recess, so you have to turn the ball to tighten it. There are no flats to wrench he ball. Strap wrench just slipped, leather over pipe wrench jaws got two turns before chrome polished the leather and slipped, triple wrap of duct tape got two more turns before tape ripped and adhesive slipped. Gave up and cranked pipe wrench. To cover scratched chrome masked off ball and around base and painted black to match hitch. Looks like it was made that way.


Solved the problem of getting the trailer level and being able to use the dolly wheel on the trailer. The shaft on the dolly wheel was too short and this extended ball took care of the problem. Great product....great solution.


Worked out perfectly. When my truck bed was loaded with heavy
material, could not get trailer tongue wheel completely staight
and locked. Just needed a bit more height, and far cheaper then a whole
new setup !


My second 2" rise hitch ball - did just what I needed - eased the tongue weight on my towing vehicles which have a low height relative to the type trailer I have - Thanx etrailer


Well, I needed a reciever hitch and 2" ball kinda quick. They had the perfect set up and quality product avaiable and sent it asap. Great service. You gotta try them!


Haven't had a chance to use it yet however this saved me quite a bit of money. I needed a rise for my 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan however I already had a ball mount from a previous vehicle. I flipped that ball mount and used this ball with a 2" rise and was able to get close enough to the hitch height I wanted with no issues.


This product was the only way I could find to pull my trailer level. I wish there were 2" ball mounts made with just 1" or less drop. As is with this product the drop significantly reduces ground clearance compared to the level of the receiver.


Great products, prices and service! Etrailer is hard to beat. Extremely fast turn around, my order was shipped the same day. The selection is very complete. I ordered some 2" hitch balls. Riser balls are hard to find in my area.


Obtained the proper hitch height but you will need an impact wrench and a 1 1/2" socket to tighten the nut. There is no flat on the shank to place a wrench to stop the ball from spinning while tightening. You could use a pipe wrench but that would destroy the chrome finish.


A simple solution to a sometimes tricky problem, the extra rise on the Curt hitch balls will enable you to zero in on getting the trailer level with minimal effort.


Should have looked at more options before buying this type of Hitch Ball. Used it once...I don't trust the long shank...went with a different setup!


I am very excited about this tow ball with its extra height. My trailer now has much less weight on the tow ball which previously tended to lower the back end of my car. Etrailer had my order out the door within hours and the approximately [price] for shipping/handling was very reasonable given the weight of this tow ball. Highly recommended!


Works well to level my boat trailer. Pipe wrench required for mounting as there are no flats on the hitch.


Worked as expected



Worked well to give the needed extra height for my trailer dolly.


my 2"hitch ball with 2" riser came in about a week very good quality nice heavy chrome it looks great on my custom hitch


EXACTLY what I needed! My Toyota Highlander hitch was too low, and I needed a two-inch rise to make it easier to hook with the boat trailer. Perfect! Happy with fast shipping, very reasonable price, and very high quality! What's not to like?

  • How to Get a Ball Mount with 0 inches of Rise or Drop
    In order to get a ball mount that has effectively 0 inches of rise or drop you would need to get a Trailer Hitch Ball Mount, part # D-4, like the one you referenced that has a 2 inch drop, and then use a 2 Inch High Rise Ball, part # C40034. I attached links to FAQ articles on ball mounts and hitch balls below for you to check out also.

  • Available High-Rise Hitch Balls
    When a small amount of height rise is needed to keep your hitched trailer level you can either use a ball mount with that amount of rise or in some cases use a high-rise hitch ball like those shown on the linked page. These hitch balls are available in all three ball sizes (1-7/8-inch, 2-inch and 2-5/16-inch) to match your trailer coupler and with two different shank diameters, 1-inch like # C40034 and 1-1/4-inch like # C40036, to match your ball mount. All are shown on the linked page. If...

    The Stealth Hitch # SH33VR will definitely fit your 2018 BMW 328d xDrive Sports Wagon, but the included ball will only get you to 18 1/2 inches when measuring from the ground to the top of the ball. I went through all our replacement parts for Stealth Hitches, but this will be the highest rise they offer. That being said, I did find an option that will get you to the needed height. The Curt Hitch Ball # C40034 will actually raise the ball up 2 more inches. This would replace the ball that...

  • Ball Mount for with More than 11 Inches of Rise to Tow Trailer Level with 2012 Toyota Sienna
    What I recommend is to use Convert-A-Ball cushioned ball mount # AMSC12 and then add a high rise ball. The ball mount takes a ball with a 1 inch diameter shank. If the trailer coupler takes a 2 inch ball use high rise ball # C40034. If you need a 2-5/16 inch ball there isn't a high rise version that would fit so you would need to use a regular ball # 63847. If the coupler does take a 2 inch ball then # AMSC12 with # C40034 will provide you with approximately 12-3/4 inches rise and you...

  • Ball Mount With Most Rise for Curt Class II Trailer Hitch On 2007 Volvo S60
    The Class II ball mount we offer with the tallest rise is the Curt # C45028. This ball mount has a rise of 5-3/8 inches. This gives you a height of 18-3/8 inches, still short of your 22-3/4 inch coupler height. Even if you used a hitch ball similar to the Curt # C40034 with a 2 inch rise, you would still be a couple of inches shy of your coupler height. Ideally, you want to tow level to avoid sway and traction issues, but this is as close as you may be able to get to towing your boat trailer...

  • Gaining Rise With a Hitch Ball
    You can get get a hitch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank that will give you 2 inches of rise with a 2 inch ball # C40034, though that is going to limit your towing capacity to 6,000 lbs. If you needed to stick with a 10,000 lb towing capacity, then you would need a new ball mount, # C45338 for 8 inches of drop, # AMSC6 for 6 inches of drop or if four inches of drop was needed, # AMSC4. I have added links to video reviews of each of these ball mounts for you to take a look at.

  • Finding the Right Ball Mount for a 2009 Chevy Avalanche to Tow a Trailer Level
    Using a regular ball mount does not reduce the capacity of the trailer hitch. That only happens when using certain adapters and extensions. Since the hitch height and trailer height are the same you would need a ball mount with no rise or drop. But let's make sure you are measuring the same way we do. With the 2009 Chevy Avalanche and trailer on level ground measure from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver opening. Then measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler with...

  • Ball Mount with No Rise or Drop for a 2015 Subaru Forester and Class III Trailer Hitch
    There are some ball mounts that have no rise but a little bit of rise in your situation would be fine. The tongue weight of the trailer will pull down at the ball mount a little to compensate. Ball mount # D-4 is one option for use with Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75876 for your 2015 Subaru Forester. This ball mount has just a 3/4 inch rise. Or you could use the ball mount in the drop position (it has a 2 inch drop) and then use ball # C40034 which has a 2 inch rise to get it to a no rise...

  • Does Hitch Ball Height Factor in to Determining Rise/Drop Calculation for Picking Out Ball Mount
    When determining rise you don't need to factor in the height of the hitch ball unless it's a high rise ball. The rise calculation is done by taking the measurement from the top of the hitch opening down to the ground and comparing it to the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when sitting level. In relation to the ball mount the dimension would be from the bottom of the ball mount platform to the top of the shank of the ball mount like in the picture I attached. An...

  • Hitch Height on 2009 Acura MDX and Ball Mount Compatibility
    When we installed 2-inch Curt Class III hitch # 13354 on a 2009 MDX we found that the top of the receiver opening was indeed 17-inches above ground, although this can vary slightly from car to car depending on the amount of tread wear and factors like passenger and cargo weight. Since all tow vehicles will exhibit some degree of rear-end squat when a trailer is hitched to them, it is a good idea to have the starting height of the hitch ball on the MDX about 1-inch HIGHER than the top of...

  • Best Ball Mount with 8 to 10 Inch Rise for Front Mount Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Ram 1500
    The ball mounts that we carry that have enough rise do not have enough clearance to clear the front bumper on your 2014 Ram 1500. But I do have a possible solution for you. You could use Curt ball mount # D-28 which will provide 4 inches of rise. Then use Curt high rise ball # C40034 which will provide another 2 inches of rise for a total of 6 inches. This is a 2 inch ball. For the purposes of slow maneuvers in the driveway a 2 inch ball can be used with a 2-5/16 inch coupler. You would...

  • What Tool is Normally Used for Torqueing Down Hitch Balls
    The amount of torque needed for the hitch ball you have installed on your Blue Ox weight distribution will be based on the hitch ball you have. Some require a great deal of torque like the Curt hitch balls like the # C40034 that require 450 ft lbs whereas some require less than that. We don't normally recommend impact wrenches but we do normally recommend longer torque wrenches. Since those can be expensive the best option might be to see if an auto parts store can loan you one.

I have attached an image to assist. If this doesn't provide the height you need we also have the 2" ball available with an additional 1" rise with part # C40033 or an additional 2" rise with # C40034.

There is not a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball that has a 1 inch shank.
