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. .

  • Selecting Ball Mount for Yakima Trailer with 22" Coupler Height and Ford Focus with 10" Hitch Height
    If you measured a distance of 10 inches from the ground to the top of the inside of the Draw-Tite # 24872 hitch receiver on your 2015 Ford Focus, the Curt Drawbar # C45028 is going to put the ball platform at 15-3/8" above the ground. With the hitch ball actually in place you are looking at a ball height of around 17-3/8", which is still quite below the ideal 22" ball height for the Yakima trailers such as the Rack and Roll # Y08107. With this setup the Yakima trailer is going to be...

  • 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...

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

    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...

    The biggest rise we offer in a 1-1/4 inch ball mount is 5-3/8 inches, and that is part # C45028. This ball mount is a Class l and also features a 5-9/16 inch drop. This ball mount is rated for a gross towing capacity of 2,000-lbs. The hitch pin and clip I recommend is part # F-4. For a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball I recommend part # C40001 and for a 2-inch ball I recommend part # C40018.

    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...

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.

  • Can I Tow a Malone MicroSport Trailer with a Nissan Altima
    What that means is that the Malone MicroSport trailer, part # MPG460G, is level when the bottom of the coupler is 18 inches off the ground. To tow the trailer level you need a ball mount with a rise. Park your Nissan Altima on level ground and measure from the ground the inner top of the receiver hitch. When we installed the Draw-Tite hitch on an Altima we measured 10-1/4 inches. You'll likely be close to this but measure your car so you're sure. Then subtract your measurement from...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

    Like you said all of the hi-rise hitch balls have a larger shank diameter than 3/4 inches. They are all either 1 inch or 1-1/4 inch. But depending on how much total rise you need there may be a ball mount you can use that will get you close if not at the height you need. I have included a link below to our help article that shows how to measure to select a ball mount with the correct rise or drop. The Class I ball mount with the most rise is # C45028 with 5-3/8 inches rise. But it has...

While this isn't the 7-1/2 inches you are needing to get you to a total of 17-1/2 inches from the ground, it is currently the best option available. I do recommend verifying the rise you are needing by taking a couple measurements on your vehicle and trailer. To do this, you will measure from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver...

This gives you a height of 18-3/8 inches, still short of your 22-3/4 inch coupler height. Even if you used a hitch ball similar to the Curt # C40034 with a 2 inch rise, you would still be a couple of inches shy of your coupler height. Ideally, you want to tow level to avoid sway and traction issues, but this is as close as you may be able to get to towing your boat...

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.

    The ball mount that you use is going to depend on the trailer hitch you have on your 2014 Toyota RAV4. If it has a 2 inch receiver opening then it will not be a problem. But if it is a 1-1/4 inch opening that makes it a Class I or II hitch and you are supposed to use a specific ball mount indicated by the hitch manufacturer. Since Yakima is measuring that 22 inches to the top of the ball and all of the ball mounts are based on measuring to the bottom of the coupler instead you would...
