Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45026 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number C45026. This is the Curt Class-I Draw Bar made from a sturdy steel construction. It has a black gloss powder coat finish so it is going to stand up well against rust and corrosion. This mount goes through a high-quality manufacturing process, a CNC machine for consistent cuts and welds and it goes through a 7-stage washing method to help deliver a nice clean, smooth surface. Both the drop and rise positions are available to help ensure a more level tow. You see here that it does have a hollow shank here on the back side. When choosing a hitch ball, you want to make sure that shank of the hitch ball does not exceed the ball hole diameter which, for this mount, is going to measure right at 3/4". This is the portion here that's going to slide into the receiver tube of the hitch.

This is the shank of the mount. What you'd do is you'd slide this portion in, line up your pin holes and then, you're going to need a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. These items are sold separately. You can refer to the Mounts product page in the Related Items to view those products or you can go to our website and type in part number PC2 and it will refer you to this 1/2" pin that comes with a clip. When it's installed in this position, this would be the drop position. We from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the ball platform.

It's going to give us a drop of 3 1/4". When installed in the rise position doing that same measurement, it's going to us a maximum rise of 2 5/8". The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of this portion here is going to measure about 6". The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank is going to measure 1 1/2". The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of our ball hole is going to measure 9 3/8". This mount is going to provide us with a tongue-weight capacity of 200 pounds and a gross trailer weight capacity of 2,000 pounds.

Because of the weight rating, it is classified as a Class-I draw bar. Here at the front, our draw bar thickness is going to be 3/4". Actually, it's just going to measure right over 1/2" at about 5/8" and about 2" in width. That's going to complete today's review of part number C45026. This is the Curt Class-I Draw Bar rated at 2,000 pounds. .

While visiting family in Brooklyn, N.Y. my trailer hitch was stolen. What can you expect it was Crookland, oops I mean Brooklyn. This was an exact replacement. Fast service, nothing bad to say all is good except my feelings for Brooklyn. 517159

Excellent- I bought it to get More length from the vehicle without using a extender(which lowers by 50% your weight limits). It fits the bill perfectly and will tow a 400 Pound Sea Doo Spark with my Chevy Spark which has the E trailer hitch . Great service and speedy delivery!! 115714

You guys did everything you should have. The mount works great. It was the strangest UPS delivery ever-- thank God for thePost Office. I will happily buy from you again 69144

I would have rated this product as very good, but it would not fit into my 1.25 inch receiver. It was necessary to grind it down a bit and then repaint it. My other ball mount fit in the same receiver with no modification. 45722

  • Drawbar Will Not Fit Trailer Hitch On 2004 John Deere Buck ATV
    The problem you probably are facing is that you have to use a Class l ball mount in the hitch receiver on your John Deere ATV. The shank on a Class ll ball mount is inserted in the receiver more than on a 1-1/4 inch receiver and the holes will not line up. I went to the warehouse and measured the Curt Class l Drawbar, part # C45021. The distance from the end of the shank that goes in the receiver to the center of the hitch pin hole is 1-1/2 inches. This drawbar has a 4-inch rise and...

  • 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.
