Curt Pintle Hitch - Pintle Hook - Standard - CU24FR Review


Today we're going to take a look at the Curt SecureLatch Pintle Hook for 2 inch hitches. It has a 14,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now this pintle hook here will let you hook up your heavy duty trailers to your tow vehicle. This portion of the shank here will slide into your vehicle's 2 inch hitch receiver opening, and right up here provides the attachment point for your lunette ring coupler. It does use this auto locking system to secure your lunette ring without manually coupling. I do want to demonstrate how this works.

I happened to pull lunette ring. Now the lunette ring that I pulled has an inside diameter of 3 inches. This will work with either lunette ring couplers with a 3 inch inner diameter or a 2 1/2 inch inner diameter.So basically what you want to do is first remove this safety pin and clip. Once you remove that, then what you'll do is back the vehicle up until lunette ring right here will tap right up here. This built-in rounded backing plate helps guide the ring into the hitch.

Once it taps there and just go straight down and a flap in this latch will go over it and it locks it into place. Then you'll take your safety clip inserted through clip it and that'll keep it locked so it doesn't get removed from the ring.Now it does have a cupped hook design. Right here on the hook, it actually is a cupped hook and that's designed to hold this lunette ring tightly. This reduces any chucking and noise creates an nice smoother, quieter ride than standard pintle hitches. Also on the side here, let me first show you how to remove it.

Pull your pin and clip back out and then flip this lever all the way down till it hits. Then when you go to remove it, this will raise up. Lever moves right off of there, very simple to do. Then just flip this right back and set back up and it's ready to go.Now the integrated hooks, if I turn this, you can see the hook over here and the hook over here. These integrated hooks will help keep your safety chains from dragging on the ground.

They're not to be used a safety chain connection points, your safety chains you do and always connect to the tow vehicle. This is just to keep the chains from dragging on the ground. Now this is a nice cast iron construction. It is heat treated for superior strength. Has a nice texture, dark gray finish to resist corrosion, provides a premium look, and it does use corrosion resistant zinc finish on all the hardware. I mentioned has the tethered safety pin and clip, you can see it's tethered on there so you won't lose it. You always know where it's at. You slide that through the hole, clip it, and you're ready to go.When you do install this into your hitch, it will require a hitch pin and clip to secure it or a hitch lock. Those items we do sell separately on our website. They're usually listed on this product page as a related product. You do want to make sure that if you're going to use one you already have, this diameter hole is 5/8 of an inch. So you do want to make sure the pin that you're using would be a 5/8 inch diameter pin. Application again, this is for 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers, gross towing weight capacity is 14,000 pounds. The last thing I want to do is just give you the dimensions of it. The length from the back here to the front, we'll put a tape measure on it. That's be right at 13 3/4 inches long. The height of it from the bottom here to the very top, the highest point 7 1/8 inches tall. That should do it for the review on the Curt SecureLatch Pintle Hook for 2 inch hitches with the 14,000 pound gross towing weight capacity.
