Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45028 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C45028. This is the Curt Drawbar for 1 1/4" Hitches. This ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It's going to have the shank right here, it's a nice solid shank. This is going to slide into the receiver tube of your hitch on your vehicle. Then your ball platform is going to provide a good mounting point for your hitch ball.

Hitch balls are going to be sold separately. You can use this in either the drop or rise position, so both are available to help ensure a more level tow. It's made from a sturdy steel construction. It's going to have a corrosion-resistant, high-gloss black powder coat finish. Now to secure this inside of your hitch, you are going to need a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. The diameter of this hole's going to measure a 1/2".

Those are going to be sold separately, you can refer to our website. We offer a lot of different options when it comes to a pin and clip or a pin and lock for 1/2" diameter pin holes. Curt's going to make this in the USA. Again, it is designed for 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" trailer hitch receivers. This is class 1 and class 2 compatible. It's going to offer a gross towing weight of 2,000 pounds.

With a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. A few measurements to go over with you real quick. If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole, that measurement is going to measure right at 5 9/16". Now, again, this can be installed in either the drop or the rise position. This would be your drop position, if we measure from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform, it's going to give us a drop of 6". Then if we take a measurement of the rise, measuring from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform, that's going to give us a rise of 5 3/8".

Now, the ball hole diameter on this particular mount is going to measure 3/4 of an inch. Keep that measurement in mind when choosing the hitch ball, you want to make sure the shank of the hitch ball matches the ball hole diameter of the mount that you want to install it on. Curt's also going to cover this with a limited lifetime warranty. Again, you're going to have the solid shank, 1/2" diameter pin hole and the drop 6", rise is at 5 3/8. That's going to do it for our review of part number C45028. This is the Curt Drawbar for 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" Trailer Hitch Receivers. .

Draw bar arrived sooner that expected and was packaged great for the weight. My current draw bar was not low enough for the trailer and this bar drops the trailer down to a great working and traveling height. 574546

As advertised at a good price. I need the drop down for my Ford Explorer, as the hitch receptacle on the bumper is too high for my trailer to be level without the drop. Works well............. 350416

I looked online and couldn't find what I was looking for so I called them and spoke to a nice lady she found what I needed. It got here in a timely matter. But if they tell you it's coming ups sometimes ups uses smartpost which comes a day later by mail. Other than that I'm very happy with the product and customer service 333855

Perfectly made draw bar with an accurate 6" drop as described. A simple product but well made - necessary for its purpose. What was best was that the total cost with shipping was what others were asking for a similar product before shipping. I'll stick with etrailer. 401532

These are the final 2 pieces that i needed to hook up a trailer to my Subaru Impreza. A year ago i bought the hitch and a bike rack from eTrailer (both of which work excellent together). The ball and drawbar went together easy and fit perfect in the hitch. The drawbar in the raised position puts the trailer almost at a perfect level. 224389

Bought two hitch mounts and a tie-down strap. Quality of all is outstanding but, even better, the service was fantastic. The three items arrived 2 days after I ordered them. I did not have to pay anything for shipping. Before ordering them I asked a couple online questions and the answers came quickly, within a couple hours. Highly recommend etrailer.com. 459111

Great product, have it on our 2014 Forester, using it as a bumper guard-for those people that pull in too close in parking lots and get against your car. I have the rise UP and then mounted two LED lights to the rise, connected to trailer light socket for extra turn signal lights and brake lights. Really shows up great. 452432

Ask the Experts about this Curt Ball Mounts
Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Tallest Rise 1-1/4 inch Hitch Ball Mount Availability
  • When measuring for ball mount rise/drop needed you have to measure from the bottom lip of the coupler to the ground and not from the top like you mentioned. That means your trailer height is going to be more like 20 inches instead of 22 inches. That being said the closest ball mount we offer to what you need is going to be the part # C45028 which can do a rise of 5-3/8 inches. Then for a 2 inch ball you would want the part # C40018.

  • Recommended Towing Setup For 2017 Audi Q7
  • For your 2017 Audi Q7, if you don't already have a hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76076. This hitch receiver is a black powder coat finish over and e-base coat for excellent rust protection. For your wiring, I recommend the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and Installation Kit # 119250KIT if you don't have the factory tow package. This harness uses zero-contact-interface...

  • Recommendation for 1-1/4 Inch Ball Mount with 8 Inch Rise
  • Based on the measurements you took on your trailer hitch and trailer coupler, you will technically need a ball mount that features a rise of around 8-1/2 inches for a completely level setup. Between the two ball mount options you mentioned, the Curt Class II Drawbar # C45014 will be the better option, as it provides a greater 5 inch rise. The highest rise ball mount we currently have available that will be compatible with your existing 1-1/4 inch Curt trailer hitch receiver is the Curt...

  • Available Drawbars for 1-1/4 Inch Hitches with at Least a 5-inch Rise in the Shank
  • The Curt bar # C45028 (5-3/8 inch rise or 6-inch drop) you referenced is one of 3 Curt drawbars we currently offer that will have a 5 inch or more rise in the shank. The reason other shanks may have a different rise is because it may have a different Class rating. I also pulled this drawbar from our warehouse and made a short video and diagram for you. Please note you can only use Class-I rated crossbars because your 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio only works with Class-I hitches. The two...

  • Recommended Ball Mount with 7 Inch Rise for Class I Trailer Hitch
  • I recommend looking at the Curt Class II Drawbar # C45028 for the 1-1/4 inch receiver opening on your 2014 VW Jetta Sedan. This ball mount provides the highest rise at 5-3/8 inches currently available on a ball mount that is compatible with Class I trailer hitches like what is installed on your vehicle. This won't quite get you to the 7 inches needed to tow your trailer perfectly level, but it will be sufficient. I also recommend making sure you are correctly measuring for the needed...

  • Recommended Towing Package for a 2011 Mazda 3 Sedan
  • We have everything you are looking for, but I must warn you that Mazda does not recommend towing with this vehicle, so you would be doing so at your own risk. The other complication is that there is no stated towing capacity for your vehicle because it is not recommended for towing. You will want to be very careful if you choose to tow. For a trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Hitch # 24842. This hitch as a Gross Trailer Weight Capacity of 2,000 lbs. and a Tongue Weight...

  • Ways to Steady Bike Rack Mounted on Ball Mount
  • A 1-1/4-inch hitch can be either a Class I or a Class II type. Your hitch should have a sticker that tells you which you have. In our Class I ball mounts the most rise is indeed 5-3/8-inches, with Curt ball mount # C45028. For a Class II ball mount the most rise, 5-1/2-inches, comes from Brophy ball mount # BM96. A ball mount with more rise will tend to wobble more than one without rise since the actual weight load on the hitch is moved further away by that rise. You can help immobilize...

  • Availability of Ball Mount w/ Large Drop for 1-1/4 Inch Receiver on ATV
  • None of our manufacturers offer an adjustable ball mount for a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver. The Curt # C45028 ball mount has the largest rise/drop of any of the Class I, 2000 lb capacity ball mounts we offer, it has a 5-3/8 inch rise or a 6 inch drop. For a Class II ball mount with a 3500 lb capacity, with the same rise/drop, use part # BM96.

  • Drawbar Recommendation with 5 Inches of Rise for 2012 Honda Civic with Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24763 is confirmed to fit your 2012 Honda Civic. Once installed the measurement you'll want to use is from the inside top of the receiver tube which on our install was about 11 inches. You'll want to compare that 11 inches with the distance from the ground to the bottom of your trailer's coupler. A better drawbar for your Civic is the Curt # C45028 that will give you a 5 inch rise. For a hitch ball use either the 1-7/8 ball # C40001 or the 2 inch ball # C40018....

  • Recommended Brake Controller For 2008 Subaru LLBean Outback

This brake controller is similar in size to many others, but the functions are much easier to understand with the LCD screen. This controller runs constant diagnostics and will allow you to see issues without needing to decipher codes. It is customizable to driver perferences and has 3 levels of boost.

  • What is the Actual Rise of Curt Class I Ball Mount # C45028
  • Curt measures rise differently and everyone else just goes by the specs Curt provides. All of our rise and drop measurements are taken the same way (unless otherwise noted). Curt estimates rise and drop. We measure from the top of the receiver opening to provide the exact. So from the top of the receiver opening to the top of the ball platform it is 5-3/8 inches when ball mount # C45028 is in the rise position and 6 inches in the drop position. Like you said that is the highest available...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2014 Kia Forte
  • The owner's manual for your 2014 Kia Forte EX only states that they do not recommend towing a trailer. It doesn't say you can't but it also doesn't give any capacity information. But given that the weight of your trailer is all of 400 to 500 pounds even your small car would be fine towing it. With Curt trailer hitch # C11368 installed the top of the receiver opening will be about 1 inch or so below the bottom of the rear fascia. Measure up from the ground to a point about 1 inch below...

  • How to Determine Correct Class I Drawbar for Trailer Hitch
  • Since you already know you need a Class I drawbar (which fit 1-1/4" receivers and have a capacity of 2,000 lbs), you'll just need to determine the rise or drop you need. To do this, you'll want to make sure your tow vehicle and trailer are parked on level ground. Then measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on your tow vehicle, and measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on your trailer. If the height of your hitch receiver is greater than the height...

  • Availability of Ball Mount with 10 inch Rise for Class I Trailer Hitch on 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • The highest rise on a ball mount we currently offer that is compatible with a Class I trailer hitch is the Curt # C45028, which has a rise of 5-3/8 inches. Higher rise ball mounts are only compatible with higher rated hitches. If you need this additional rise to tow your trailer level with your 2005 Jeep Liberty, I recommend changing to a Class III trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite Max Frame # 75128. This will give you a tongue weight capacity of 500 pounds and a towing weight capacity...

  • The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the backside of the vertical plate is 2.39". I have attached a photo with the measurement for you as well. In order to determine if this ball mount will work with the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24878 on your 2013 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback you will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the bumper. When we installed this hitch on a similar 2014 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback we found...

  • Ball Mount with the Most Drop for a 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • I have not seen a 1-1/4 inch ball mount that offered 12 inches of drop. The most that we have is a 6 inch drop # C45028 (Class I or II) or # BM96 (Class I). If this is for a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee I recommend switching to a Class III, 2 inch trailer hitch, # 13251, so you can use a ball mount with more drop such as # AMSC12.
