Difference Between Curt Pintle Hooks for 2 Trailer Hitches  


Difference between c48004 and c48005. Is the only difference between C48005 and C48004 the weight rating? If so why is the heavier duty, higher rated hitch less expensive? Thanks

The only difference between the two pintle hooks you referenced is the weight capacity.

- Curt Pintle Hook for 2" Hitches # C48005: 10,000 lbs
- Curt Pintle Hook for 2" Hitches # C48004: 20,000 lbs

Apart from that, both pintle hooks are made of forged steel, fit lunette ring couplers with a minimum inner diameter of 2-1/2", measure 14-1/2" total and 9-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the pintle hook.

In regards to pricing, as with all online retailers, prices are fluid and determined by an algorithm which takes many factors into account.

To mount the pintle hook in your hitch I recommend Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98880.

I have added links to video reviews of both pintle hooks for you to take a look at.
