Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45147 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Towing Starter Kit for Inch and a Quarter Hitches. This starter kit contains the basic components needed for towing. The ball mount's going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It simply slides into the receiver tube of your hitch, and then the ball platform provides the mounting point for the hitch ball, which is included. The hitch ball provides a connection point for your trailer's coupler. The unit is pre-torqued to factory specifications, so it's going to be ready to use as soon as you get it. It is already installed in the rise position.

This right here would be the drop position. If you want to use the unit in the drop position, you will have to take the hitch ball off and install it in the upright position with the mount in the drop position, but it is pre-torqued and ready to go with the mount in the rise position, which is going to be the most common setup for most applications that have a inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter trailer hitch receiver. It's also going to come with the pin and clip. This is a half inch diameter pin. It's designed to secure the mount inside the receiver tube of the hitch. The unit's made from a nice durable construction.

We're looking at a sturdy steel construction with rust resistant finishes, so we're going to have a black powder coated finish on the ball mount, chrome plated finish on the hitch ball, and then zinc plated finishes on the pin and clip. The ball mount is made right here in the USA. It's a nice solid shank design, so it's not hollow. This is design for an inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter trailer hitch receiver. It is compatible with Curt class one and class two hitches.

It's going to offer a gross towing weight of 3500 pounds with a maximum tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds. The hitch ball diameter is a two inch hitch ball. If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball, that's going to give us a measurement, looks to be right on nine and three quarters of an inch. When using this in the rise position, it's going to give you a rise of three quarters of an inch. That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of the ball platform. If you use it in the drop position, and you do those same measurements, which would be from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of the ball platform, that's going to give you a drop of an inch and a quarter, but, again, it is installed and ready to be used in the rise position.

That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt Towing Starter Kit for Inch and a Quarter Hitches.

Received my Curt Towing starter kit for 1-1/4” hitches within four days. Made from quality material and craftsmanship. Looks and works great. 501427

After a year using my Curt Towing kit I’m extremely pleased. Great, durable quality product. Thanks for fast efficient service.

Everything arrived pretty quick and the install wasn't too difficult for 1 person (would've helped to have an extra set of hands). Took a couple tries to line everything up and realize that certain brackets needed to be unbolted before the hitch would align (tow hook on passenger side, and a couple near the rear driver's side exhaust hanger). Minimal trimming required for the underside of the rear bumper plastic on the driver's side to make room on an 05 wrx wagon. Also needed at least 1 extra long exhaust hanger (kartboy) for the rear to make everything level with my 3" turbo back APS exhaust. Haven't gotten a chance to tow with it yet, but it feels solid. 398001

Very heavy this product is. I was very surprised when I picked up the box it came in and felt the weight, which makes me glad I bought a bag to carry it in. The last hitch I ever got, from another plac, because I needed it in a pinch for my last car during a move, wasn't even close to being as heavy and it was about the same size and had the same weight capacity. The metal on that one also didn't seem right either, didn't have the smooth coating this one does. I am quite confident this ball mount from Curt, who has been in this business for decades, will easily take the weight of my trailer, which I use for things like mulch and stone, and then some. Of course I don't ever plan to over load it, but if something ever happens that requires me to make fast lane changes, I am confident the ball mount won't give out on me. I will still use good safety chains though, I'd be foolish not to. If it's one thing I learned i life, anything can happen no matter how much you prepare ahead of time. 442416

So far its worked well for my trailer, making mulch and plant runs much easier

  • Recommended Equipment for Towing a Trailer with a 1993 Buick Roadmaster
    The only trailer hitch receiver that is available for your 1993 Buick Roadmaster Sedan is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12009. It is a Class II hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver as you mentioned. It has a Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) of 3,500 lbs and a Tongue Weight (TW) of 350 lbs. If your Roadmaster and this trailer hitch are rated high enough for your trailer then you will just need Trailer Wiring # HM11141185 and a compatible ball mount and hitch ball.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for Harley Davidson with 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Receiver
    We currently do not carry any stainless steel or chrome ball mounts for the 1-1/4 inch receiver size. We do however have many options that have the black power coat similar to the frame of your Harley Davidson and chrome hitch ball options to give you that chrome accent. I recommend the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 1-1/4" Hitches - 2" Ball - 3/4" Rise - 3,500 lbs # C45147 or the euro ball style ball mount # C45552. Both of these give you a 2 inch hitch ball.

  • Is There a Way to Transport a 225 lb Honda CRF150F Dirt Bike with a 2016 Acura TLX
    Since both trailer hitches for your 2016 Acura TLX, Curt # C11535 and Draw-Tite # 24942, have a 200 lb tongue weight, even if there was a carrier that fit the smaller 1-1/4" receiver the weight of both the carrier and your Honda CRF150F dirt bike would be well over that. This means that the only option for you to transport your dirt bike with that vehicle is by towing it with a trailer. Your owner's manual does state that towing may void your warranty but it is worth noting that you...

  • Can the EcoHitch # 306-X7310 be Used to Tow with a 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI
    The EcoHitch # 306-X7310 has a 2,000 lb trailer weight rating and a max tongue weight rating of 200 lbs. As long as your loaded trailer motorcycle doesn't exceed these limits you can use this trailer hitch for your trailer. Something else you will need to check out is the weight capacity of your 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI itself. You should be able to find this on the door jamb of your driver's side door. You also need wiring and a ball mount with a hitch ball to complete your towing...

  • Availability of Multipurpose Ball Mount for a 1-1/4 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    When you get to the small 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers there tends to be more restrictions on what they can accomplish due to their lighter weight capacities. Unfortunately there are no multi-purpose, or special ball mounts that can be used with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. You will only be able to use the regular ball mounts. Keep in mind that when choosing the correct ball mount for towing you will want to take your trailer and tow vehicle to a level area and measure from the ground...

This is a Class II trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver and it has a 3,500 lb gross trailer weight rating as well as a 300 lb tongue weight rating. When I looked up an online copy of your owner's manual it stated on page 327 that the max amount of trailer weight it can tow is 1,000 lbs and then it also stated that the max tongue weight of your Camry is 100 lbs.

  • Can Dirt Bike Carrier be Used on a 2014 Toyota Corolla LE
    Since dirt bike carriers are designed to carry heavier loads all of them have 2" shanks. All of the trailer hitches available for your 2014 Toyota Corolla have a 1-1/4" receiver and so the only way you'll be able to transport your '95 Honda CR125 with your Corolla is to use a small trailer. It is worth noting though that the online owner's manual for your vehicle states that Toyota doesn't recommend towing a trailer. If you don't have any other vehicles to accomplish this with and you...

    We do carry 1-1/4 inch ball mounts with a 2 inch diameter hitch ball already installed on it in steel, but it is not stainless steel. The steel ball mounts do come with a black powder coat finish though that protects it against rust and corrosion. When deciding the correct ball mount for your application you will want to look at the Rise and Drop that it has to offer and choose one that has the appropriate Rise or Drop for your application.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2011 Scion xB
    The trailer hitch that I recommend using for your 2011 Scion xB is the Curt # C12490. This is a Class II trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver. It has a 350 lb tongue weight rating and a 3,500 lb gross trailer weight rating. But your vehicle may not be rated for this much. You will need to confirm the weight rating of your Scion in your owner's manual. You will also need wiring, like the recommended T-Connector # C56035, and a ball mount kit like part # C45147.

  • Compatibility of a Curt Hitch on a 1998 Nissan 200SX
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11261 is a custom-fit Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch opening designed to fit the 1998 Nissan 200SX. The Curt hitch is designed to fit up under the bumper and to bolt on to the frame of your vehicle. You will need to know what your vehicle's towing and tongue weight capacities are before installation. The Nissan 200SX has an approximate towing capacity of 1,000 lbs. The max tongue weight for your vehicle will be between 100-150 lbs. The max tongue weight...

  • Is There a Ball Mount for a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch With 1 Inch of Rise
    The good news is that the additional 1/4" of rise you are trying to obtain is likely not going to be necessary when towing a trailer. The vehicle should sag a bit once you attach the trailer so more than likely, the ball mount you have now will work just fine for you. I would not worry about the additional 1/4" or so when towing a trailer as it will not have any negative effect. The bad news is that we do not offer a high rise hitch ball that will fit the Curt Towing Starter Kit for...
