Review of the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit


Hey everybody. Today, we're going to be going over the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit. This kit here is going to be specific for models with the factory prep package. Now, the factory prep package, it'll be pretty easy to identify. We're going to have four pucks, one here on the each of outside, and then we're going to have the center gooseneck hitch. You are going to need to have this factory equipment in order to use this ball and safety chain kit.The ball and safety chain kit here is pretty much going to be the only thing we need to tow a gooseneck trailer.

We're going to have our two and five-sixteenth inch hitch ball here, which will attach to our gooseneck coupler. And then, by law, we're going to have to have two safety chains for our gooseneck trailer. We're going to be able to attach those easily to our nice and wide safety chain loops here.What's really nice about these factory prep packages here, we only need a couple of things to be able to tow a gooseneck trailer, but everything is also really easy to use. All we need to do to remove our gooseneck hitch ball is simply flip this lever up and then rotate it 90 degrees, so then we can pull it straight out. In order to insert it, simply drop it into place, rotate it back towards the rear and then lock it down.

Again, this is going to be really easy. But I do want to make note is that unless you have a tonneau cover, you really don't want to store your hitch ball in the actual gooseneck hitch, because it can give a tendency to get stuck over time as water, dirt and corrosion gets in there, and it would be really hard to remove. I definitely recommend greasing everything down, but it's also still advised to go ahead and take this out while not in use, unless you have a tonneau cover.We have this nice convenient carrying case that's going to come with our kit here, but it will easily allow us to store our hitch ball and our two safety chain loops. We can store it inside the cab there when we need it. We don't have to worry about losing them.

Everything is going to be in one nice convenient location. There we go. Now, we can set this back in the cab of our vehicle and then get it when we need to use it.With our gooseneck hitch ball here, we're not going to have to worry about any weight capacity issues. The hitch ball is going to be rated at 38,000 pounds which, chances are, that's far going to exceed your truck. Although your hitch ball is going to be rated that much, you do need to check your owner's manual, see how much your truck can tow, and then abide by the lower of the two ratings.

But essentially, we're not going to have to worry about our hitch ball here being the weakest component.Last but not least, we're going to get a nice, durable, rubber plug here that we can place inside the gooseneck hitch opening when we're not using it, to just keep everything in there nice and clean so we don't have any issues when we go to re-insert our hitch ball.And that'll do it today for looking at the Curt ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit..
