Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - CU47FR Review


Today we're going to take a look at the CURT SecureLatch pintle hook with the two inch ball and a 20,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this pintle hook and hitch ball combo lets you hook up a heavy duty trailer to your tow vehicle, provides an attachment point for your lunette ring coupler, and also a two inch hitch ball which will connect to a standard ball coupler. Now, this is a SecureLatch pintle hook and it's designed to Mount to the SecureLatch adjustable slotted pintle mounts, which we sell separately on our website and are listed on this product page as a related product. Basically, that slotted mounting plate allows for a nice, quick easy height adjustment of the pintle hook and ball. Basically it has slots that go up and down on the mount. You just bolt this in right here and it'll allow you to slide it up and down and put it in whatever position you need for level towing.This also features the auto locking system to secure the lunette ring without manually coupling.

I do want to demonstrate that, and to demonstrate it, I did happen to pull a lunette ring. Now, this is designed to fit lunette ring couplers that have the inner diameter of two and a half inches or three inches. This one I pulled happened to have a three inch inner diameter. I just want to show you how it'll connect. So basically what you want to do first is you'll remove this tethered safety pin and clip.

You can see it is attached on. You can just let it go and then that'll allow you to start to hook up. You'll back your vehicle up that has a lunette ring on it until it bumps up against this rounded backing plate. What's nice is this rounded backing plate right here will help guide the ring onto the hitch. So, once you back up and bump onto that, you're right into position.

Lower the ring down onto the ball and when you get down far enough, it'll let this auto locking latch secure the ring.Once that's into place, you'll see that it won't allow it back up. Once that is, then you take your tethered safety pin, slide it through there, latch it, and that'll keep it from moving, and then you're all hooked up, ready to go. If you noticed underneath where this hooks right here, it has this nice cupped area, which is designed to hold the lunette ring tightly, which will help reduce chucking and noise, creates a smoother, quieter ride than a standard pintle hitch. And then to remove it, all you have to do is remove the safety pin and clip, and then you'll take this latch, push this lever all the way over till it hits the ball, and then just raise your lunette ring. And when you raise it, it'll remove it and it flips this back into place, and you're ready to install again, just like that.

So, what you want to do is go ahead and put your pin back through and lock it so you're not going to be hooked up.You notice right here on the sides, it has these integrated hooks and these are designed to help keep your safety chains from dragging. Now, they're not designed to hold or attach your safety chains to it. It's just to hold your safety chains up out of the way so it doesn't drag on the ground. This is a cast iron construction. It is austempered for superior strength, has a nice texture, dark gray, teridium finish to resist corrosion, provide a premium look. The pintle ball is constructed of a high strength drop forged steel and it has a corrosion resistant zinc finish on the ball and the hardware you can see.Specs on this again, the gross trailer weight capacity is 20,000 pounds. The ball size diameter is two inches. The ball capacity, which is stamped on it, is 10,000 pounds. And the last thing I want to do is just give you a couple of dimensions on this. The height of this from the very bottom to the very top, it'll be right at about eight inches tall. And then the length of it from the back here to the very front is right at about seven and three eighths inches long. But that should do it for the review on the CURT SecureLatch pintle hook with the two inch ball and a 20,000 pound weight capacity.
