Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Accessories C31002 Review

Today were reviewing part number C31002 from Curt. This is a front-mount trailer hitch license plate holder. If youve installed a front hitch and the license plate holder had to be removed in order to install your hitch, or if the license plate ends up behind your hitch, this will give you a new mounting plate for your license plate so that its visible. Simply insert this holder into your receiver tube and secure it with your pin and clip. If you do not have a pin and clip, you can get one from We use part number PC3, and see youre ready to go.

Now youll see the height here in relation to the shank. If you want to hang your license plate lower, all you have to do is turn the mounting plate upside down so that the Curt name is upside down and then you have a lower height to hang your license plate. This is compatible with 2 by 2 trailer hitches, and there you have it for part number C31002 from Curt, the front-mount trailer license plate holder.

I bought the Curt front mount Trailer hitch plate holder and a Draw-Tite front mount hitch. These parts were purchesed for a 2500 06 Duramax, everything fit perfect. I'm pleased with both products and the shipping was Super fast. Thanks again Julie H ;). 145286

Holder arrived on time and in good shape. Needed a couple of different sized washers to attached the plate, but no big deal. Looks good on the front of my truck, using the 65056 front receiver hitch. 67099

Got it painted to match the color of my front bumper replacement. Bracket is sturdy enough to be used as a pushbar! What a piece. Holes are a bit big, but work great with washers. 8770

Well made product, but I do agree with other reviewers....the holes are way too large for the licence plate mounting purpose intended. 187244

Just what I was looking for. Off-set so can go higher or lower plate coverage. 23674

  • Front Mount Hitch for 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Pickup
  • I have attached a link to our front mount bolt-on hitches for 2008 Chevrolet Silerado 3500s for you. Both the Curt Front Mount Hitch # 31109 and the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch # 65050 have a 2 x 2 inch hitch receiver, a line pull maximum of 9,000 pounds, a vertical load max of 500 pounds, and a gross trailer weight max of 5,000 pounds. The Curt front mount hitch's receiver will sit just below the license plate on your vehicle. This hitch will provide an easier installation. I have...

  • Options For Mounting License Plate To Front Mount Hitch On 2000 Ford Excursion
  • Sorry to hear you got a ticket for the removed license plate on your 2000 Ford Excursion, but we may have an option that will work for you. One option I recommend is our Fold Down License Plate Holder, part # 8802. This mounts to the license plate mounting holes on Excursion and folds down so that you have access to the front mounted hitch. I have attached a photo of the holder and have the mounting dimensions noted on the photo you can check out. The lower mounting holes are 7-1/2 inches...

  • Dimensions for License Plate Holder C31002 When Used in the Upright Position
  • I went to our warehouse and measured the license plate holder, and when # C31002 is used in the upright position, the top of the face plate sits 4 inches above the top of the shank. The bottom of the face plate would be 5/8 of an inch below the bottom of the shank. The edges of the face plate are 5-1/8 inches from the sides of the shank.

  • Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitches for a 2006 Dodge Ram and Winch
  • The Draw-Tite front hitch # 65046 is slightly less invasive than the Curt hitch # C31017 and thus will provide slightly less ground clearance but ultimately they are very close. The vertical pull capacity is basically like tongue weight on a rear mounted hitch. If you are not going to apply downward force to the hitch then the lower capacity of the Curt hitch should not be an issue. You mentioned using the hitch for a winch so there are some cases where vertical pull is a factor. For...

  • Hitch Pin Clearance Measurements for Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Licenese Plate Holder
  • Curt provides 2 hitch pin holes on the License Plate Holder so you can set it to a different depth depending on your bumper size and shape. The first hole measures 4-1/8 inches from the back of the plate to the center of the hole. The second hole measures 6-1/8 inches from the plate to the center of the hole.

  • Can Fold Down License Plate Holder # 8802 be Used with a Rear Mounted Trailer Hitch
  • In order to use the fold down license plate holder # 8802 pm a trailer hitch you would have to fabricate something for it to attach to. It is meant to be used on vehicles where the receiver goes through the bumper. Using a holder that actually fits in the receiver such as # 5443 or # C31002 would be the better way to go. Both of these products indicate they are for front mount hitches but they will fit in any 2 inch receiver, front or back.

  • Dimensions for Curt License Plate Holder # C31002
  • I went to our warehouse and took some measurements of the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch License Plate Holder # C31002 for you. The part is 6-1/2" wide and 12-1/2" tall. I used the digital calipers to measure the plate's thickness which measured 0.2". The part is made of a heavy duty steal with black, powder coating to resist rust and corrosion. Check out the graphic I made of these dimensions and the demonstration video of this part that I have included under help information.
