Review of Curt Ball Mounts C45030

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C45030, this is the Curt ball mount for 2 inch hitches. It's going to have a 7,500 pound capacity. This ball mount is gonna let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion is going to slide into your vehicles receiver tube of your hitch, and then the ball platforms going to provide a great mounting point for your hitch ball. If you need a hitch ball you can find those right here are, they are going to be sold separately. You can use this mount in either the drop or the rise position, both are available to help ensure level towing. It's made from a sturdy steel construction, here on the backside it's going to feature a hollow shank, now it's also feature a corrosion resistant, high gloss, black, powder coat finish.

The pin hole diameter, back here, is going to measure 5/8 of an inch. Your hitch pin and clip, or hitch lock, are going to be sold separately. If you need just a standard hitch pin and clip you can find that with part number C21500, or if you would like a hitch pin and lock, you can find that on our website with part number 7683. Curt makes this mount in the USA, again it is designed for 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers, it's going to offer a gross towing weight of 7,500 pounds, with a maximum tow weight of 750 pounds. A few measurements to go over with you real quick. Taking a measurement from the center of the ball hole to the center of the hitch pin hole, that's going to give us a measurement, center on center, let's line that up a little bit better.

About 7 5/8 of an inch, somewhere in there, pretty close to that measurement. The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank, that's going to give us a measurement of 2 1/2 inches. Now with it installed in the drop position, here on the sticker it's going to say it offers a 2 inch drop, that's an approximate, or estimate . Not estimated, but rounded off measurement. The actual drop measuring from the top of the shank to the ball platform, it's going to give us a measurement of 2 1/4 of an inch.

The rise, is going to give us a rise of an inch. The ball hole diameter is going to give us a diameter of 1 inch, keep that measurement in mind when choosing a hitch ball, you want to make sure that the shank of the hitch ball matches up with the ball hole diameter on the mount. Curt is also going to cover this with a limited lifetime warranty. I will go ahead and show you how it installs inside of your hitch, really simple process. All you have to do is slide the shank into the receiver tube, line up your pin holes, and take your pin and clip, or hitch pin lock, and use those to secure it inside of your hitch. That's going to do it for our review of part number C45030, this is the Curt ball mount for 2 inch hitches.
