Review of the Curt Pintle Hook


What's up everybody. It's AJ with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna be checking out this Pintle Hook from Curt. It's gonna be a good way to hook up to your lunette ring trailer and be able to transport that. I suggest looking at this one if you only have one trailer, you got one truck, you know exactly what height you need because this isn't gonna be adjustable, but that's a good thing if you only have that same truck, that same trailer, you can pull this right up to it, lower it down on there and get on the way. Let's check it out.

First things first, this is gonna be made for two and a half inch hitches. So make sure you have that style of hitch if you're gonna go ahead and get this pintle hook. Now there's different ones out there for different size hitches, so make sure you check our website and get the right one. Let's check out how it works. So we're gonna just pull this pin.

When we're ready to set up our trailer. We've backed it up to where the lunette ring would be. We gotta push on this lever, with your thumb to raise this part up. Lemme show you it doesn't lift up on his own. So you had to pull that pin, push that lever, to get this ready to go.

Then you'd back it up to your lunette ring trailer, lower the ring down over this. So this will go in the center. Then you'll push this back down. The ring would still be here, and it's gonna keep it from popping up, chucking or anything you see that this cap isn't gonna let it pop up there. Definitely make sure you always put your pin back in once it's hooked up to your trailer.

And I would also recommend maybe getting a locking pin too. That way it's something you can lock up, and it can't be messed with when you're not around. Now, something to think about if you haul multiple different trailers is maybe a adjustable pintle hook. So that's gonna be able to be moved up and down for different heights and different trailers. Not to mention your trucks too. So that is an option that's out there. If you have a bunch of trailers, I would go that way, that way you can adjust it. You don't have to pull this out. Get a different one. It's just, I don't want to hassle with any of that. Now, along with the adjustment ones, there are ones that have the built-in ball. So it works as a pintle hook and a ball mount. That's the one I like the best, just 'cause that way I don't ever really have to pull this out and switch out with an anything, it can stay in the hitch at all times. I can adjust it where I need it. I can use it for each, either one of the trailers I wanna pull that day. As far as those different styles go, I usually come back to the current ones. I just really like how those work. They have a bunch of different features that I didn't even think about before I started messing with them. So with all the different pintle hooks you're done, with that combination of the ball mount pintle hook I really like. Either one of them has a backing on it. So that when you back up to the trailer, the lunette ring will hit that and you'll feel it, or see it in your backup camera, that way you just have a visual of oh, it's hit there. You lower the trailer down onto that ball. Then as you lower it, this part is actually flipped up and I'll hit that, flip it down, and it does so much things for you that you don't have to do and come out here and mess with, I really like those features. I would not have thought them if I hadn't got to mess with all those so, those are just recommendations for you to check out if you're interested in those features too. Adjustable pintle hooks aside, this is gonna have a gross towing weight of 20,000 pounds. Now if you think you need a little bit more than that, there's a Brophy one, that's almost identical to this except it has a higher weight rating, and that's gonna be 36,000 pounds. And that's gonna work with lunette rings with a minimum inner diameter of two and a half inches. So just keep that in mind with what kind of trailer with a lunette ring you wanna use it with. Now the the construction's gonna be a black powder coat steel. So you don't have to worry about it rusting or corroding if you left it on the back of your hitch, it's going to be resistant to that, so rather you leave it on here all the time, or you take it off and throw in the back of your truck, it's gonna be just fine. Otherwise I think it's gonna work great, it's kind of a simple pintle hook, but if you only have one trailer, you're not worried about having it adjustable, you're not worried about different heights and stuff like that. This is gonna do exactly what you need it to do. It's gonna be to hook up your trailer and get on the road. Well, thanks for hanging out. And I hope this helped..
