Review of Curt Ball Mounts C48004


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C48004. This is the Curt Pintle Hook for two inch hitches. It's going to have a 20,000 pound weight capacity. The Pintle Hook is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. This portion right here is going to slide into your vehicles receiver tube of the hitch. This portion up here is going to provide the attachment point for your lunette ring coupler. This unit's made from a very strong, forged, solid steel construction. You can see how it's solid all the way around, no hollow shank. It's also going to feature a corrosion resistant black powder coat finish, so it's going to stand up really well to the elements. It's going to have the safety pin, that's going to keep the top latch closed, in a closed position to prevent accidental disconnect or unhooking.

Now to open up this mechanism, you simply remove the safety pin. It's going to be held on there with a nice chain, that way you don't ever have to worry about misplacing it or losing it. Now to bring the top portion back, its got this nice little T-handle right here. You flip this up and then it's going to allow you to pull this mechanism into an open position, so that's going to allow you to make your connection. To drop it back down, lift up on that, push the top latch back down, then you always want to be sure to reinstall that safety pin so that top portion stays closed over the connection.

Boom, push that back through. Now when you have your shank inserted inside of your hitch, you're going to line up your pin holes and insert a pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. Those items are sold separately. You can check out some options here on our website. The diameter of the pin holes is going to measure 5/8 of an inch. This is for two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers. It's going to fit lunette ring couplers with a minimum inner diameter of two and a half inches.

This unit's going to offer a gross towing weight of 20,000 pounds. A few measurements to go over with you real quick; we're going to take a look at the overall length, measuring from edge to edge . it's going to give us a measurement of about fifteen inches. The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the pintle hook area, that's going to give us a measurement of about 9 1/2 inches, and then the distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the very back of the shank, that's going to give us a measurement of about two and three quarters of an inch. It's a really simple installation. All you have to do is take the mount, place it into the receiver tube of your hitch, and again you're going to push it in until you hear the pin holes line up with one another, and then simply insert a 5/8 inch pin and clip or hitch pin and lock. That's going to do it for our review of part number C48004. This is the Curt Pintle Hook for two inch hitches, with a gross towing weight of 20,000 pounds.
