Review of Curt Ball Mounts C45901

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount, has a 6,000 pound weight capacity. Now this is designed to mount on trailer hitches that have a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening. You notice this is an adjustable channel mount, which will allow for precise trailer leveling. There's six rows of holes here and each one is one inch increment between the rows, so you can move it up wherever you need it.It is equipped with a one inch diameter hole to accept a trailer ball. It has a shank diameter with one inch right here on the mount. Now this shank can also be flipped for maximum rise and a maximum drop.

Right now we have it in the max position, so here's the maximum drop. That would be measured from the top of the shank, to the top of the ball platform. You could put a ruler on that, maximum drop would be six and three quarter inches. If you turned it around, put it in the rise position, and measure top of the shank, top of the ball mount, you'd be measuring maximum rise of five and a quarter inches.Does offer two hitch pinholes, right here on the side. It'll provide either 11 inch or 12 inch shank length, and that measurement is from the center of the ball hold to the center of the hitch pinhole, you can see 11 inches to the first hole, and then 12 inches to the back hole.

Does also offer right down here if you can see, there's a rubber dampener, that you can move from either there or move it up. But that dampener's there to eliminate possible rattle between this channel mount and the ball mount platform when it's all put together.Now it is protected by a nice highly durable carbide powder coat finish. The pins and clips you can see for the channel mount are all included. And it also includes the hitch pin and clip to hold this mount to the hitch. Weight capacity again on this is 6,000 pounds.

Ton weight capacity is 600 pounds.That should do it for the review on the Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount with a 6,000 pound weight capacity.

Can the ball platform be flipped also to make more heights possible? Thanks

@JonG Can the ball and the “tounge” also be “flipped” for more height?
