Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45521 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number C45521. This is a Curt Class II Drawbar, rated at 3,500 pounds, made from a nice sturdy steel construction and we do have the nice solid shank here on the backside of our mount. It does have a corrosion-resistant black gloss powder-coat finish, so it is going to stand up well against rust and corrosion. Now these mounts go through a high-quality manufacturing process. This one is CNC machine for strong, consistent custom welds. It also goes through a 7-stage washing method that's really going to help deliver a nice, smooth, clean surface. With this ball mount both the drop and rise positions are available to help ensure a more level tow. This is designed to fit an 1 1/4" by an 1 1/4" trailer hitch receiver and because of its weight rating at 3,500 pounds, this is Class II compatible.

It can provide us with a maximum tongue-weight capacity of 350 pounds. Now one of the important things to keep in mind when choosing a hitch ball accessory or a hitch ball is you want to make sure that the shank on that accessory does not exceed your ball hole diameter. In this case, we have 3/4" to work with. The distance from center of our hitch pin hole to the center of our ball hole is going to measure right at 7 1/4". The distance from the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright portion of is going to measure about 4". You just want to make sure you have enough room at the back of your vehicle, especially if you're going to be using this in the rise position.

You want to make sure that you have enough room from where it mounts in the hitch to make sure it doesn't make contact with your bumper. So, again, this is available in the drop or rise position. With installed in the drop position, which is this position shown, you're going to have a drop of 3 1/4". That's measuring from the inside top edge of your receiver tube to your ball platform. If you install this in the rise position and perform that same measurement from this point here, to this point here, you're going to have a rise of 2 5/8". The shank is the portion that's going to slide into the receiver tube of our hitch. You would then need a 1/2" pin or clip, or hitch pin and a lock to secure it to your vehicle.

Those are available, but sold separately. You can refer to etrailer.com to view those products. That's going to complete today's review of part number C45521. This is the Curt Class II Drawbar, rated at 3,500 pounds. .

i placed an order through etrailer and received the first shipment on time as expected, though after trying to install the receiver I realized that it was for the 4 door version of my car instead of the coupe. I called them instantly and within 5 minutes of talking to their customer service i had a new receiver on the way to my door step. The customer service here is amazing and they do their best to take care of their customers. The new part was received and fit just as intended. it is high quality and looks amazing!!!! I would recommend them for any and all trailer needs. 487138

I spent around $175 for a what I thought to be a complete hitch installation and apparently the lousy $2.00 receiver pin was too much cost for etrailer to include. So now I get the pleasure to travel 25 miles to buy that pin locally. Amazon looks better every day. 640180


Comments

Our description states that the hitch pin and clip or locking hitch pin is sold separately. This is to allow our customers to choose the approiate lock that they may need, or mayalready have for their accessories. If you would like the standard hitch pin that would be used for this item is a F-4. Or a locking version as part C23517.

Wonderful product. I had the hitch installed in 10 minutes. The wiring was a little more tricky because it required running a power wire all the way to the battery. I towed my trailer from Florida to Tennessee and back. Etrailer is still wonderful to deal with as they always have been in the past. My hitch came in a couple of days. I wouldn't think of ordering from any one else. 352740

The draw bar is just fine. I do wish that it had come with the pin and it’s safety clip. These items did not come with it. A little disappointing on that point. 482233


Comments

Philip, Thank you for your review. If you need a standard pin and clip for this ball mount I would recommend part F-4. If you would like a locking pin I recommend part RH2-XL.

I have never regretted ordering through etrailer. As always, this order arrived precisely on-time. The wiring for trailer lights proceeded exactly as expected.

The hitch receiver and ball mount arrived together and much faster than I would have expected (2 days).

The whole unit has been working just fine, as expected. And the price is hard to beat. 677984

Product looks and works great. Has a sticker on it that reminds you of the weight limitations of the product, which comes in handy and is not standard on drawbars for some reason. Keep it under my trunk next to my spare tire when not in use, so there is no corrosion after a year. Mounts snugly in my hitch and does not vibrate or have any play at all when towing. 464615

Overall everything has worked as it should. My only complaint would be that I have pretty much always had some wobble/looseness of the drawbar in the receiver. It is actually audible when driving. I was in the process of buying, and selling a house when I installed the trailer hitch, so the issue was overlooked due to the complexity of the move. I guess I learned to live with it, and hope it doesn't ever cause a failure. 429280

The types of bike racks that can hold both a trike and a recumbent bike, such as # HR1450Z-R-TRKADP2, only fit Class III and up 2 inch trailer hitches.

If you will be doing any towing with your vehicle then you will also need a wiring harness, ball mount/hitch ball, and hitch pin/clip.

  • Parts Needed To Tow a Trailer or Haul a Cargo Carrier with a 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI
  • The easiest to install trailer hitch we have for your 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11412. The reason that this trailer hitch is the easiest to install is because you don't have to take off any part of the rear bumper fascia like you would have to for the other options available for your Golf. I have attached an install photo and video for you as well. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver has a class I rating with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. Therefore,...

  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36643 and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12176 which are both a fit for your 2019 Toyota Camry come with what is referred to as a powder coat finish. A powder coat finish is similar to paint in look but is much more weather resistant. I do not have any quantitative data to suggest one is more rust resistant than the other but I can say that Curt uses a more sophisticated powder coating process called aquence technology. This process entails...

Class I and II trailer hitches have 1-1/4 inch receiver openings whereas a Class III hitch will have a 2 inch receiver opening.

I recommend this one over the Draw-Tite # 36652 that you referenced because of its higher tongue weight rating of 350-lbs.

However, the hitch from the point where it connects to the vehicle's frame rails to its lowest point measures about 10 inches. So if you measure on your vehicle from the bottom of the frame rails where it installs to the ground and subtract 10 inches you'll have a pretty close estimate. If you're going to be towing a trailer you...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Audi A4 Allroad
  • For your 2018 Audi A4 Allroad the hitch you'll want is the Curt part # C11448 which is a confirmed fit and would do a great job towing the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535 that you referenced. The ball mount you have to use with the Curt hitch is the part # C45521 and then for a 2 inch hitch ball you'd need the # A-82. You'll also need trailer wiring as well so that you can control the trailer's taillights. For that the best option is the Tekonsha ZCI kit part # 119250KIT which...

  • Images of Curt Class II Trailer Hitch Receiver Installed on a 2016 Lexus NX 200t
  • Unfortunately, we have not had the chance to get any photos or a video of the Curt Class II # C12143 on a 2016 Lexus NX 200t as of yet. I did grab a couple of images from the install details that I've attached. The install details are attached as well. This hitch is confirmed to fit your Lexus. If you're going to be towing you'll also need trailer wiring. The Curt Wiring Harness # C56268 will provide you with a 4-way trailer connector. This will power a trailer's running, brake,...

  • Maximum Towing Capacity of 2011 Cadillac CTS with Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I looked at an online copy of the owner's manual for your 2011 Cadillac CTS and it states that your car can tow no more than 1,000 pounds. You should check your owner's manual to verify this. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11196 has a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 pounds however this will not increase the capacity of your Cadillac. You are limited by the lowest rated factor which in this case is the car. If you're going to use the hitch to carry anything other than a trailer...

  • Towing Bike Rack Availability with 5 Drop Ball Mount for Towing Vintage Trailer
  • We do have ball mounts with a 5" drop that you can use with the Swagman Traveler XCS # S64664, but none of our towing bike racks come with a ball mount that has a 5" drop (none of them actually come with a ball mount as the pictures are for demonstration purposes). If you would like to stick with the XCS that you referenced then I recommend using the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit # 989900 for 2" trailer hitches. This comes with a 2 different ball mounts, one of which has a 4" drop (which...

  • Can a 2017 Kia Forte Tow a Boat Trailer
  • You can put a trailer hitch on your 2017 Kia Forte and for that I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11368 if you have a sedan or part # C11395 if you have a hatchback. However, Kia does not recommend towing a trailer with this vehicle according to the owner's manual. If you choose to ignore this then in order to tow a trailer you are also going to need a trailer wiring harness part # C56186 if you have a sedan or part # C56228 if you have a hatchback, a ball mount part...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch on 2018 Cadillac CTS-V
  • Yes, we do have parts that'll fit your 2018 Cadillac CTS to tow a trailer. From what I've found your car has a maximum capacity of 1,000 pounds tops. You didn't mention the size or weight of the trailer but just make sure you stay within this limitation. I also recommend checking your owner's manual just to verify the number. To fit the Cadillac you want the Curt hitch # C11900. It's a custom fit for the Cadillac and also has a concealed cross tube so you won't be messing with the...

  • Class I Ball Mount to Allow for Total Hitch Ball Height of 17-Inches on 2014 BMW 428i
  • When we installed the Curt Class I hitch # C11367 on a 2014 BMW 4-Series coupe we found that the height of receiver opening was 11-inches above ground level. This is shown in both the linked photo and installation video. Since there are two stock tires sizes offered on the car, P225/50-17 and P255/40-18, the actual height of your vehicle could differ from the one in the video. The recommended Curt Ball Mount is part # C45521 which has 2-5/8-inches of rise and can be used with a ball...
