Review of Curt Balls C40002


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt 1 7/8 inch hitch ball. This hitch ball provides a connection point for your trailer's coupler, it's made from a steel construction with a durable corrosion resistant nickel chrome finish. It's got a feature of fine threads that provide tight strong grip. It's also comes with your split lock washer and the mounting nut. I want to point out on the sides of the base right here, the platform has got to have the flats. These are wrench flats which allow for a much easier installation when you are getting everything tightened down, and torqued to the specifications listed from the manufacture.

Again the ball diameter is 1 7/8 of an inch, it's going to have a weight capacity of 3500 pounds. The diameter of the shank, it's a 1 inch diameter shank. Shank length it's going to give us a measurement of about 2 1/8 of an inch long. This is designed to fit ball mounts that have a drawbar thickness of at least 3/8 of an inch thick. Place this through the ball hole, just like this on the underside would go the lock washer, and the nut. Then you just need to get it all tightened down with the specifications like your torque rating, that's going to be found on the tag that comes with the hitch-ball.

That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt 1 7/8 inch hitch ball with the 3500 pound weight capacity.
