Review of the Curt Pintle Hook for 2 inch Hitches


What's up everybody it's AJ with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna be checking out this curt pintle hook. Now, this is going to go in your two inch hitch. We have an adapter on our two and a half inch hitch here, right now, today, that's going to allow this to fit in there. And this is going to hook up to your lunette ring, so you can pull those kinds of trailers. It's going to be really easy to operate and use, and you can pull the pin here, and pull up on this latch, that brings this part up.

Now, it's ready for you to back up that ring, put it down, lower it over hook, close it back out, and you're good to go. Let's check it out. So this is going to work with lunette rings with a inner diameter of two and a half inches. So, just keep that in mind, when you're thinking about what trailer you're going to use this with, this will hold up to, it will tow up to 20,000 pounds, so, you have to keep that in mind too, with whatever you're going to haul on your trailer, and put on your truck. The whole construction of the pintle hook is going to be a steel forged construction.

So, it's going to hold up to the elements that you leave in the back of your truck, on the hitch all the time, or you throw it on the inside. It's going to hold up, it's going to last you a long time. One thing I will note though, it does not come with a pin and clip. So, that's what you're going to put here in the hitch pin hole. So, I recommend getting an each a locking pin and clip.

It's got a barrel lock on the end, and you turn it to tighten it down, and lock at the same time, which is going to keep it protected against people trying to lock, pick it, or even just mess with it. Now, it's time to go ahead and hook up that lunette ring. So, I'm gonna just back up the pintle hook in the place, and we'll get it attached. Now, I got back up, and in place, I can go ahead and lower the trailer, which is going to lower the lunette ring into the hook there. That's good right there.

Now, we got to lower down in to place into that hook, push that back down, and then, place our pin. Overall, super easy to use. I back it up with no issues, stopped right on the dime, dropped it down there, you see the lunette rings down there in that hook. It's nice and secure, it's not going anywhere, especially with that pin in place, and this part last up here. Now, the only thing I would say is it doesn't have some of the features of the other premium ones like, "I like that there's a bumper, I want the other curt ones that you can back into that ring right into, and then, lower it from there." That's really helpful. I like that one. And then, some of the other ones that actually had the ball mount on there too, that way you don't have to switch it out, depending on what your towing. So, if you just want to tow your heavy equipment, you need this, or you have a boat with a coupler. You could hook that up there with a ball mount, and use the same one. But, if you don't have another trailer, you only got to work trailer. It's going to be just fine for that. You don't have to swap anything out. Thanks for hanging out. And I hope this helped..
