Review of Curt Balls C40033

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C40033. This is the Curt Two-inch Hitch Ball. It's going to have the one-inch rise, and it's rated at 6,000 pounds. The high-rise design is going to let you easily match the ball to your trailer height. The trailer hitch ball is going to sit an extra inch above the ball mount platform, so the rise is this portion right here. It's going to offer fine threads. These are going to provide exceptionally tight, strong grip once installed.

This is a steel construction with a nickel chrome finish, so it's designed to resist rust and corrosion. The lock washer and the nut are both included. The ball diameter is going to measure 2 inches. Here at the shank, it's going to give us a shank length measuring from the bottom of the platform to the end of the threaded portion of 2 and 1/8 of an inch. It's going to give us a shank diameter of one inch. The ball shank diameter, this is just something to keep in mind, that should be within 1/16th of an inch of the ball mount hole diameter on the ball mount.

Keep that in mind when choosing a ball mount or when choosing a hitch ball. The rise, we'll take a measurement of that. That's going to measure right at one inch. Again, the hitch ball is rated with a capacity of 6,000 pounds. Very easy installation. All you have to do is place the threaded portion down through the ball hole, and that would be on the ball mount.

Place on the lap washer followed by the nut, then you need to get everything tightened down and torqued to specifications. It's going to come with a nice little instructional tag that's going to be installed on the shank. You want to be sure to remove that. That's going to have the proper torque rating on there, and some other information that you need to go off of. That's going to do it for our review of part number C40033. This is the Curt Two-inch Hitch Ball.
