Review of Curt Hitch Accessories C45796

Today we'll be reviewing part number C45796. This is the Curt Extender for 2 inch receivers providing 18 inch extension. Has its own capacity of 3,500 pounds with a towing weight capacity of 350 pounds. Has a nice black powder coat finish which is going to help us stand up against rusting corrosion and it's going to fit your 2 inch by 2 inch hitch receiver, has a nice solid shank here on the back, it's not hollow, so this extender is very durable. Just keep in mind that when using the hitch extender, it will reduce your hitch's overall capacity by 50%. This extender is going to extend your trailer hitch receiver opening out from the rear view vehicle to avoid any of those obstacles that you need to clear. You're also going to be able to gain some extra clearance for your trailer and you're going to be able to mount your hitch route accessories without having to remove your rear mount and spare tire. Now to go over a few basic measurements, we have an overall length of about 32 3/4 of an inch. The distance from the center of 1 pin hole to the other is 18 inches, so that's where we get our 18 inch extension from.

The larger portion here of our extender measuring from the opening back to this point measures about 17 inches and the part that slides into our hitch measures right at 6 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the larger portion here of our extender measures about 3 1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of our extender measures about 3 inches. Now we'll go ahead and show you how this installs. What you do is take your extended and slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up your pin hole and then you'd slide in your hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. Those items are sold separately and you can refer to the Curt Extenders product page under related items to view those products. Just like that we'd be ready to load up our accessory and get on the road. That's going to complete today's review of part number C45796. That's the Curt Extender for 2 inch receivers providing 18 inches extension. .
