Pictures attached. Curt makes such great quality products. I love this new hitch.

Great hitch, after one year I still recommend. Get one!
TIM - 02/03/2022


Excellent product that fit my need perfectly. I tow with 2 trucks, one needs a drop and the other needs it up a bit. I usually leave it on one truck but I also tow 3 different trailers with it and was sick of having to carry all sorts of hitches.
I've had no complaints at all with it, I'd definitely buy recommend it to anyone.


The product works as expected. I use it primarily for towing a 10,000 lb offshore boat. I leave it in one position 80% of the time but occassionally adjust it when hauling a different trailer, and the adjustment is easy.

However this is significantly heavier than it looks or any other hitch I've used since it is not made of hollow square tubing, but a solid steel block. I have no doubt it is strong, but it is probably over 30 lbs. So if you plan to switch vehicles with it often, be prepared.


I had the 2.5" receiver for my 2014 Ram 2500 so it was a no brainer to go with the Curt 2" receiver for my 2002 Chevy 2500.

Still very happy with this receiver. Highly recommend it.
Joseph - 03/11/2022


Great price. Worked perfectly. E-trailer always has what I am looking for with fast shipping. Great product and very well constructed.


This hitch is as KISS as an adjustable hitch could be. Built very well, with good thick gussets, a solid receiver shank, perfect welds and a good powder coat. The fact the trailer balls are built from one forged piece means no worry about a nut loosening and no weld to potentially break. I would go ahead and recommend you buy two replacement rubber isolators and just go ahead and put them in the other two holes in the hitch so no matter where the ball is it has some contact with an isolator without having to move the one it comes with. I highly recommend etrailer, they have great prices and fast shipping and they put out a lot of very helpful videos and pictures of the products they are selling.


I am very impressed with C45900 ball mount. Curt is an excellent manufacturer. The only thing I did not like are the snap rings on the pins. I have seen those get hooked unintentionally or be pulled to steal the ball mount. I replaced Curt's pins with Grade 8 bolts, drilled holes and secured with a padlock. It would be nice if someone made a locking hitch pin with enough span for the channel. I added the reflective tape for higher visibility. I live in Phoenix where they have a plant. Please run this idea by them and let me know what they think. The two locking hitch pins would only raise the price by $50. If you have a vendor who has longer pins please let me know. Using unsecured pins is asking for trouble. Thanks--Jerry


The hitch worked great I bought this hitch plus a Curt Lunette ring C48660 for my pull truck. Used the hitch setup for the first time last night and worked flawless, I would definitely recommend this setup to my friends the price was great and the hitch is well built.Thanks etrailer


Works good. Use it for the boat on 2" and use it for the 2 5/8 for the trailer for the sand cars. Love the adjustability since we use different trucks.


Concept is good. Lots movement and clanking when stopping and starting, though.

I have spoken with our expert team, and they have suggested the following solutions that could prevent your movementclanking. This adjustable ball mount has a set screw, that will help reduce movement of the ball mount. If that screw is not installed, then that could cause a lot of movement in the ball mount. We also would suggest using an adjustable ball mount with tighter clearances, if you are experiencing movement. Such types of ball mounts would be the Weigh Safe options, like part # WS6-25
Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2-1/2" Hitch - 6" Drop, 7" Rise - 14.5K
. Since this has a solid shank and not an open channel, there should be less movementclanking while in use.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 06/09/2022


Package arrived within 2 days of ordering. The receiver, 3 pins, and the two balls were with package as ordered. Haven't put it to use yet but seems to be tough and very durable. Using the hitch for a 2005 Chevrolet 2500 gas, hitch has plenty of drop and rise for stock suspension. So far very pleased with this item from etrailer and with other items I have purchased in the past.


This hitch has worked out great for me over the last year. It’s very heavy duty and easy to adjust. I’ve hauled a 9,000 lb boat, long-distance on numerous occasions without issue. I also haul a landscape trailer on a daily basis weighing over 5,000lbs and haven’t had a single issue. Great hitch that was significantly cheaper than others and is very high quality. I’ve recommended it to several people and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy again. The only thing I would like to have now in a hitch is a tongue weight gauge, but it isn’t necessary.

It just so happens we offer a tongue weight scale as part # 5780
Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale - 2,000-lb Capacity
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 04/03/2019


Good that a new pin to hold ballmount in receiver was included, but it was too short to go through the 2 1/2" receiver tubing. Other than that, a nice heavy assembly.


My package came in opened and I’m not sure all the parts are even there. I can send a picture to show you what was in the package and how the package was when I received it. It was open on two ends.

Sorry to hear about this. Customer Service will contact you.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 10/19/2021


Delivered 5 days before Another online retailer could and the hitch worked perfectly.

1 Year Review... Love it even more a year later. Ive towed anywhere from 3k - 11k and the hitch works flawless. I love the ability to adjust the hight of the ball to match the different trailers. Excellent value for the money. No complaints.
Tim - 03/12/2022


This is a great hitch. I have several different style trailers that I pull and this is quite easy to pull up to the trailer and adjust the hitch and hook up and go. I would highly recommend this product


etrailer is the choice for me to buy my towing needs


I like the overall versatility of this hitch but the only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because Curt is manufactured in the USA. The box I received says it was made in India! I hope this metal is strong and well made cause my horses lives depend on it.

Thank you for your review. The Curt hitches are assembled in the USA but not the ball mounts. The only adjustable ball mounts that we carry that are made in the USA are the B&W adjustable ball mounts like part BWTS10040B.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 06/18/2020


Excellent product. Installed in minutes. I tow a 14 k lb dump trailer. Needed the additional rise on the hitch. The draw bar is adjustable so that I can tow my utility trailer as well. High quality like most products I have purchased from

Very good except the Rubber s have worn causing hitch to vibrate
JohnnyB - 10/01/2018


I really like this. We have a variety of different trailers (different height, different size balls, etc.), and this hitch makes it easy & convenient for adjusting between them!


Product is great! Easy to adjust, easy to install and high weight capacity. Would buy again,


Just what I needed in a drop hitch. Very stout. Love the ability to change by 1 inch at a time.

This has made life so much easier for switching around trailers and being able to load level everything. Should have bought one much sooner.
Cody - 06/08/2019


Thanx for a high quality hitch with low or no noise.I will be towing a 12000 lb 30Ft.Rinker.
The hitch is very easy to adjust.

Still Great
Christian - 04/25/2017


Very happy with this product. Very easy to install and put together. The welding on this is fantastic and very durable. The two balls on this product are perfect for my needs. Over all I'm very happy with my purchase, great price, great product and great experience with this website.


It was just what I was looking for to pull my fourteen thousand pound trailer. Now I can go from one trailer to another no problem. The price was the best I could find and shipping was lightning fast!

  • Is there a Typical Hitch Height for a 2004 Chevy Blazer
    The coupler height of most trailers would fall somewhere in the 16 - 20 inch range. Measure from the top of your receiver down to the ground, and choose a ballmount that would place the trailer ball right in the center of that range, and you will be set for most trailers. An adjustable ball mount like part # C45900 might be a good option. It has a maximum rise of 5 inches and a maximum drop of 6 inches, so you can adjust the height exactly as needed.

  • Center of Ball to the Center of the Hitch pin Hole on Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount, # C45900
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount, # C45900 to take some measurements. From the center of the mounting holes for the ball to the nearest hitch pin hole center, it is 7-1/4 inches and to the furthest hitch pin hole center it is 8-1/4 inches. From the center of the ball to the nearest hitch pin hole center it is 10-1/4 inches and to the farthest hole center it is 11-1/4 inches. I made a picture that shows these dimensions for you.

  • Do I Need to Modify the Trailer Height After Getting 2" Lift On Truck To Tow Level
    For a 2" lift on the 2017 Outback Wagon you should not need to do any adjustments to the trailer to tow level because 2" is minimal. You may need to switch out ball mount to a ball mount with more of a drop if your hitch height has increased. I recommend to measure from the top of the hitch receiver to the ground. Then measure from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. The difference in those two measurements is how much drop you need to tow level. We recommend to be within 2"...

  • Which Adjustable Ball Mount for Truck With 6 Inch Lift
    To choose the correct ball mount for your needs, you'll need to determine the height difference between the hitch on your truck and the level coupler height of the trailer.

In a nutshell, you measure from the ground up to the top inside of the receiver tube, then from the ground up to the bottom of the trailer coupler. Subtract the two to get your height difference.

    The Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount - 2" & 2-5/16" Balls - 14,000 lbs # C45900 has an overall tongue weight capacity rating of 1,400 lbs. This may be further limited however by your trailer hitch receiver tongue weight capacity, so you will want to make sure that exceeds your 900 lb trailer tongue weight. The towing capacity is 14,000 lbs as you stated with the 2-5/16 inch ball or 10,000 lbs with the 2 inch ball option.

  • Could Curt Adjustable Ball Mount C45900 Be Used with 2008 Chevy Suburban
    So to determine if the Curt Adjustable Ball Mount # C45900 would provide you with enough drop you'll first need to verify the amount of drop needed. To do that you need to measure from the top of you hitch opening on your Suburban down to the ground and then from the bottom lip of the coupler on your trailer when it's sitting level down to the ground and compare those two dimensions. If you find that the distance is 6 inches or less the # C45900 will work great.

    The hitch ball size of your Hi-Low Towrite 22T depends on the model year. In the 90's it appears they used to use 2 inch hitch balls and then moved to 2-5/16 inches.
