Review of the Curt Bolt On SecureLatch Pintle Hook


What's up everybody it's AJ with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna be checking out the secure latch from Curt. It's gonna be a pencil hook that attaches to this bracket here, allowing you to hook up to lunette rings on your heavy duty or trailers. Now it hooks up to lunette rings up to two and a half to three inches in inside diameter. Let's check it out. There's a few different ways you can get this set up.

You get the pencil hook by itself. Then you'd have to get the backing plate separate with the shank that fits two and a half inch hitches. Or you can get the two inch hitch version, but you're not gonna have the backing plate. It's gonna be just attached to the shank up there. Kind of like your standard ball mount.

But we're gonna be focused on this one today. So let's talk about weight capacity. This has a weight capacity of 24,000 pounds and has a vertical load limit of 4,800 pounds. So just keep that in mind when you're hooking up to your trailer and hauling your stuff. We're gonna pop this pin out here.

That's gonna release that so when you drop the lunette ring down, it's gonna go past that and lock it in down here. So right now we're just gonna back the trailer up and let the lunette ring hit here. And then we can lower our trailer. With the lunette ring touching this part here, we know it's completely lined up. I can go ahead and lower the trailer into place.

Now if your latches and arm hasn't come into place, you can just push with your finger like that. And now it's in a position, it can't pop back up. It's not gonna cause any issues. We can replace that pin right back where we started. Another nice thing that's included is the safety chain loops here. You can just take your extra chain and put them on those hooks. That way they're up and off the ground. Now on hooking it, it's just as easy. We're gonna pop that same pin out, and what we're gonna do differently this time, is just flip this latch out. Now when it gets pushed up, it'll push up and out of place. 'Cause right here, it's not moving. I showed you that earlier. It won't pop out. Just fold it out like that, and now we can raise the trailer back up. The main portion is constructed out of a cast iron. So you don't have to worry about it not holding up when you go to use it. Also, all the bolts and moving parts here are gonna be zinc coated. So that's also gonna hold up to rust and corrosion outside. You don't have to worry about the elements getting to it at all. The plates gonna give you nine and a half inches of adjustability. So you can go all the way to the top, all the way to the bottom. It's a nice feature 'cause sometimes they're an inch increments of like wholes. So you kind of sometimes might need to be in between one of those holes. You just don't have a chance. This one's all open. So you can really set it wherever you need it to be for your trailer. Overall, it works really well. I like how the lunette rings sits down in this groove and this goes over the top of it keeping it from popping back up on you. I really like the design. The only thing I would say maybe is if you have a couple different trailers, and you want to switch out to a just a ball mount, there is a combination one that comes with a ball mount and a pencil hook. I'd recommend that one. That way you don't have to switch out the ball mount all the time when you're using different trailers. I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out. I hope this helped..
