Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45022 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number C45022. This is the Curt Class One Draw Bar with a two and five-eight inch rise or a three and one quarter inch drop it's rated at 2,000 pounds. This is made from a sturdy steel construction. Here on the backside you will notice that we do have a hollow shank. It's corrosion-resistant because it's a black gloss powder coat finish. It also goes through a high quality manufacturing process.

It is CNC machined for strong consistent cuts and welds and it goes through a seven stage washing method, it's going to deliver smooth, clean surfacing. Both the drop and the rise positions are available to ensure level towing with this ball mount. Now, a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin unlock is required and sold separately. You can refer to this product's product page under related items to view these items or you can go to our website and type in part number PC2 and it's going to refer you to this half inch pin and clip. This ball mount is designed to work with a inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter trailer hitch receiver. It's going to provide a gross towing weight of 2,000 pounds and a maximum tongue weight of 200 pounds.

When choosing the hitch ball you need to make sure that the hitch ball has a shank of three quarters of an inch. When we measure our ball hold diameter it's going to give us three quarters of an inch to work with. It is really important that you do not exceed that three quarters of an inch measurement. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole is going to measure seven and one quarter inches. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright portion of our mount is going to measure right at four inches. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of our ball mount is going to measure right at an inch and a half.

Now, when installed in the drop position it's going to provide a maximum drop of three and one quarter inches, that's measuring from the inside top at the receiver tube to the ball platform. Then, if we change this over to the rise position it's going to have a maximum rise of two and five eights of an inch. Again, that's going to be measuring from the inside top at the receiver tube to the top of our ball platform. That's going to complete today's review of part number C45022, that is the Curt Class One Draw Bar rated at 2,000 pounds. .

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (30 Customer Reviews)

Corrosion-resistant ball mount is 7-1/4" long and fits 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers.

- C45022

Three stars only due to my specific case on the factory-installed hitch on a 2015 VW Tiguan. The black powder coat finish was applied extremly thick, and as such it would not slide into the hitch opening on the Tiguan. The reciever I used on my Jetta wagon slid in without issue, but the ball height woul be excessive, hence the need for this one. I spent about an hour removing the powder coat and appling a thin coat of rust preventitive paint in order to use it as intended. 663596

From the minute I discovered etrailer.com for my new trailer hitch needs, called them on the phone, got to a live person who helped me order every item I needed, was alerted that my items had been delivered, and opened the door to see a big cardboard box that actually was still in one piece, it was a topnotch experience. Talk about great customer service...wow! I will attach a photo of my hitch once it's installed on July 29. 677900

The tolerance of off perhaps due to the thicker glossy paint(vs powder coating?) so the draw bar will not go in more then a quarter inche into the hitch. I got a different drawbar that’s looks like it is powder coated paint (non glossy) and that’s slide in smoothly. 488491

Item has been installed on tow bar, but will not be used for at least a month. It is my best estimate of what I need for a new trailer I purchased, and will pick up mid-October, based on information from the trailer people. Shipped together with other items and arrived quickly. 150627

  • Class I Ball Mount and Hitch Ball Dimensions
    To choose a Class I ball mount, each of which are going to fit in a 1-1/4 inch receiver, you will need to know the drop or rise you need by measuring from the ground to the top of your receiver and again from the ground to the bottom of your coupler. If your hitch is higher you would want a ball mount with drop; if your coupler is higher, you would need rise. For example, if your hitch was 3" higher then the Curt Class I # C45022 would be a great choice. You would also need a pin and...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon
    The Class I trailer hitch I suggest for your 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon that is NOT the STi version is Curt # C11497. It delivers the same rated capacity as the similar Draw-Tite # 24710. One important difference between the two hitches is that Curt's warranty policy requires you to use a support strap # 18050 for any non-trailer load, such as a Class I bike rack like the BikeWing # LGA54FR. The Draw-Tite hitch does NOT have this requirement and neither hitch needs the strap to...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring Harness for 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX
    The Curt # C11497 Class I hitch you looked at would be a great choice for your 2004 Impreza WRX. It has the same weight ratings as the Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch and would install in the same manner. Don't let the reasonable price fool you, Curt makes a great product so you wouldn't sacrifice anything by going with the least expensive option. If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll also need the following items: Trailer wiring harness, part # 119147KIT Ball mount, part # C45022 1-7/8...

  • How to Find a Ball Mount with the Right Rise or Drop to Tow a Trailer Level with an ATV
    I will be happy to help. To determine the right amount of drop you will need the first step is to take a couple of measurements. Park the ATV and the trailer on level ground. Measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the ATV. Then, level the trailer (as if you were towing it level) and measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. The difference is the amount of drop you will need (unless the trailer is higher then the difference would be the amount of rise...

    Yes, the Curt trailer hitch # C11308 fits the Sport Wagon model of the 2004 Mazda 6. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier) per their...

  • What Ball Mount Will Fit a 1-1/4 Factory Trailer Hitch on a 2001 Ford Escape
    There are two possible reasons why some 1-1/4 inch ball mounts might not fit in the factory trailer hitch on your 2001 Ford Escape. First, if the factory trailer hitch is what is considered a Class I trailer hitch, a Class II, 1-1/4 inch ball mount will not fit. They are designed this way for safety. Check the capacity of your factory trailer hitch. If it is 200 pounds tongue weight capacity and 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight, you have a Class I hitch and will need a Class I ball...

  • Is there a 1-1/4 Inch Ball Mount with 4 to 5 Inches of Drop
    Ball mount # 36078 has a drop of 4-3/4 inches. This ball mount is designed for Class II hitches with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. If you have a Class I hitch this ball mount may not fit depending on the brand of the hitch. For a Class I hitch we have several ball mounts that offer a 3-1/4 inch drop: # C45022, # C45026, and # C45027. Also keep in mind that the tongue weight of the trailer will pull down on the back of the vehicle some so that can help in keeping the trailer level.

  • 1-1/4-Inch Ball Mount with 4-Inches of Drop
    Some lighter-duty ball mounts such as the Class I Draw-Tite # 3594 cannot be used in the drop position because there would not be enough room for the coupler to get around the hitch ball. The short part of the shank would prevent this. For a 1-1/4-inch ball mount with about 4-inches of drop you can use Class II ball mount # 36078 or Class I ball mount # 3593 with 2-3/4-inches of drop, or # C45022 with 3-1/4-inches of drop.

  • Hitch Availability for the 2014 BMW 328i GT
    Yes; you were on the right track with the product you were looking at. The Curt # C11367 is a confirmed fit for your 2014 BMW 328i GT and will provide you with a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver to allow you to carry hitch mounted accessories or tow a small utility trailer. One of the great features of a hitch like this is the concealed cross tube, which not only looks a lot cleaner on the back of your vehicle, but it provides a little more ground clearance than visible cross tube hitches.
