'dimensions

Note: Designed for flat towing only. do not use to tow a trailer.


Many tow systems require some sort of hitch accessory to either raise or lower your tow bar so that it sits level. to determine if your setup needs an adapter, hook the tow bar up to your rv and towed car and measure to see how close to level it is. The "safe zone" for a motor-home-mounted tow bar ranges from 3 inches above level to 3 inches below. Car-mounted models must be absolutely level. this high-low adapter can provide you with the necessary drop or desired rise to achieve a level tow bar setup.

etrailer shipping was prompt and the base plate was received in a few days. I installed these myself in one day. I have not yet towed the Maverick but I do not foresee any problems. I chose the Blue Ox base plate over the RoadMaster because the RoadMaster required extensive modification to the Active Shutters. The Blue Ox instructions skip some details that end up taking time to resolve. There are clips holding the fascia to the fender that broke when I pulled the fascia, maybe they could have been released from the inside before pulling. There is a black box on the driver's side frame that has to be temporarily removed to install the base plate. The base plate bolt interferes with installation of the black box. I bent the black box bracket to get it to fit but now the box contacts the marker lamp on the fascia (I'll have to watch for future wear/damage). Cutting holes in the fake fog lamps was time consuming as there is a lot of guess work about the location. Although the instructions say start cutting holes for the tow tabs, it's the safety chain connections that are challenging. The problem is trying to hold the fascia up in position while the base plate pushes it away from the truck. The cutouts end up being a little crude but not really noticeable in the grand overview.

Great fit, looks great

Received the hi lo hitch adapter, looks good. Outstanding delivery service delivered days ahead of time. When I ordered this, a trailer suggested it would be close to a week. I received my tow bar hitch in three days and received the Hilow adapter in four days. Outstanding service.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Accessories and Parts



  • Can The Curt High-Low Adapter Be Used To Tow A Trailer?
    Unfortunately, the Curt High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars # C59KR is not to be used to tow a trailer, and should only be used for hitch mounted accessories. Instead, you'll want to use a ball mount to tow your trailer. For instance, you can use the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 2753, which has 2-3/4" of rise, and 4" of drop, is 9" long, and is capable of towing up to 7,500-lbs. I recommend using the FAQ I've attached, to help determine the needed rise/drop.

  • Bumper Clearance on Curt High-Low Adapter # C59KR
    The Curt High-Low Adapter # C59KR should work for giving you ground clearance for your cargo carrier. The measurement from the shank hitch pin hole to the back end of the top receiver is 5-1/2", which should be enough clearance for your bumper. Refer to the diagram attached below and measure your hitch setup to make sure. Note this adapter does not come with a hitch pin and clip. If you need one, I recommend the Curt # C21510. Check out the videos linked below for more details on these...

  • 4 inch Hitch High Low Adapter with Hitch Lock
    For a high low adapter with a 4 inch drop you could use the part # C59KR and then you could use the hitch lock part # e99047 that you referenced as well.

  • Does the Curt High-Low Adapter Work w/ the Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar
    Yes, the Curt High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars item # C59KR can be used with the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar item # RM-522. The high-low has a maximum weight capacity of 7,500 lbs.

  • How Much Rise/Drop Does The etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar Have
    Yes, the etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar for Blue Ox Base Plates # e47ZR would have enough adjustability between the 1-1/2" shank rise/drop and the 3" of tilt to meet your 4" difference. I've attached a video below where Dave will go over how to adjust this tow bar to fit your application. If you wanted to use a high/low adapter you could use the Curt High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars # C59KR, which has a 4" rise or drop.

  • Can the Viking Solutions Rack Jack Magnum Hoist be Extended
    If you are needing the Viking Solutions Rack Jack Magnum Hoist # 310-VMH001 to be extended further from the vehicle you can use a hitch extender like the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Hitch Receivers # C45791. The thing to keep in mind with that is you will lose 50% of your hitch's weight capacity by using an extender and the Rack Jack may sit too far out from the truck bed for your load to swivel over the bed. If you are needing the rack jack to be taller there is not an extension for the...

  • High-Low Adapter That Is 8 Long And Has A 4 Rise/Drop
    Yes we do, we have the: -Curt High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars # C59KR This high-low adapter features a 4" rise/drop, fits into a 2" x 2" trailer hitch, is 8" long, and has a maximum weight capacity of 7,500-lbs. If you're looking for a high low adapter that has 8" rise/drop, the only one we offer is the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars # RM-048-8.

  • Does Use of High Low Adapter When Flat Towing Require Longer Umbilical Adapter
    The additional length added by the Curt High Low Adapter # C59KR that you referenced would not cause a 6 foot 6-way to 7-way adapter to be too short. I am not totally sure which you had in mind but we do have the Blue Ox part # BX88206 which is coiled and can expand to 7 feet. Since the coils are basically spring loaded it keeps tension in the adapter to prevent it from dragging.

  • Blue Ox Baseplate And Complete Flat Towing Setup For A 2015 Ford Fiesta
    Every base plate that we offer, like the: - Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX2622 that you were checking out, attaches to the bumper frame of the vehicle. However most likely what you have surface rust on your 2015 Ford Fiesta, and isn't anything to worry about, but to be completely sure you can either take ball-peen hammer and tap away some of the rust to see if it's thinned out, or, you can take it to your local mechanic shop and have them inspect it.

  • What 4-Bike Bike Rack do You Recommend for My 2021 Hyundai Palisade?
    I have a great solution for you. I confirmed with Curt that they do not have a tongue weight rating for the Curt High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 4" Rise/Drop - 8" Long # C59KR because this adapter is recommended to use for flat-towing applications only. With that being said, the Curt High-Low Adapter # C59KR only has a tested gross towing weight capacity of 7,500 pounds. However, if you want a great adapter alternative that has been tested for its tongue weight capacity, I...

    Yes, the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Fixed Arms # BX1110 and the Blue Ox Alpha 2 Non-Binding Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,500 lbs # BX7380 will fit together perfectly. If you are going to be flat towing you will also need a braking system like the Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System - Proportional # HM39524.

  • Complete Flat Towing Setup For A 1997 Jeep Wrangler
    The braking used on a trailer with a brake controller is different than the brakes needed when flat towing a vehicle, so you will not be able to use your brake controller, unfortunately. Instead, I recommend using the Blue Ox Patriot 3 Radio Frequency, Portable Braking System # BRK2019. This is going to be the easiest system to set up and use. The remainder of the parts needed is the: -Base plate -Tow Bar -Tow Bar Wiring -Safety Cables -High-Low Adapter. For a base plate, the etrailer...

    For your 2007 Chevrolet HHR, the base plate you'll need is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1692.
