Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45552 Review

Today we'll be reviewing Part Number C45552. This is the curt Class 2 Euro Style Draw Bar with a 2 inch hitch ball. It's going to provide a rise of 3/4 of an inch rated at 3,500 pounds. The European style ball mount features a permanently attached hitch ball. It's made from a sturdy steel construction providing a nice solid shank here on the back of our mount. It does have a corrosion resistant design with a chrome plated ball and a durable carbide black powder coat finish on the ball mount. It also goes through a high quality manufacturing process.

It's CNC machined for strong consistent cuts and welds, and it goes through a 7 stage washing method that's going to ensure a smooth, clean surface. Please keep in mind that the draw bar can only be used in the rise position. A hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock is required and sold separately. You can refer to the ball mount products page under related items to view those products or you can go to our website and type in Part Number PC2 and be referred to this 1/2 inch pin and clip. This ball mount is designed to work with an inch and a 1/4 by inch and a 1/4 trailer hitch receiver. The way it works is you would take your ball mount, slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up your pin holes, and insert your pin and clip.

This ball mount is going to provide a gross towing weight of 3,500 pounds with a maximum towing weight of 350 pounds. Again the hitch ball size is a 2 inch ball. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball is going to measure 9-3/4 inches. This ball mount provides a rise of 3/4 inches. That's measured from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the start of the vertical curve. That's going to complete today's review of Part Number C45552.

That's the Curt Class 2 Euro Style Draw Bar rated at 3,500 pounds. .

Solid, heavy as heck. Bought this model because 1) I only have 1 lightweight trailer (Malone xtralight, also purchased from etrailer at the same time) and it’s light weight. 2) I am stuffing this into an adaptor also bought from etrailer to further stuff into a receiver also purchased from etrailer. 3) All this is on the back of my 2018 Subaru Outback. Beings that it’s a Subaru it’s not going to be used to drag a huge or heavy trailer. I’ll repeat this part in my review of the adapter, buy probably from etrailer, a receiver lock that is sleeved, to be both 1/22 and 5/8 and long. That way if you don’t want this sticking way out the back (shin killer) you can use 1 lock and go all the way through receiver/ adapter/ and this ball mount. Otherwise buy you’ll need 2 locks 1 for receiver to adapter 5/8 and a second 1/22 to go through adapter into this unit. A side benefit is it’s just different. It’s not an everyday boring looking ball mount, it’s heavy duty so why not. 623183

It was available for exactly the rise needed for our GO trailer. No issues, clean look and hangs tough. Nice choice for a sleeker look. 518606

I like that this design keeps trailers level rather than pitched forward for my 2007 Subaru Forester. Seems incredibly strong because of its weight and being one piece. 491225

- C45552

It is heavy duty and well-built. I am not disappointed at all and I get comments everyone smile from people who are used to traveling overseas asking where I got the European style hitch from. The only downside is the lack of interchangeability in the size of the ball itself but I don’t think that’s a big deal because I set it up for what I need it for and keep a vehicle vehicle for longer periods of time. 484490


Still looks great and works perfectly. It may have the disadvantage of not having interchangeable balls but Let’s be honest, once you’ve used it for a year regularly it’s going to be corroded enough you’re not gonna want to change it out anyway so having multiple sizes of them sitting around and not having to change the ball mount is a better design anyway

Small footprint makes for classy look on my Equinox. Pulled my Bass boat no difficulties. 404194

Just received it and haven't made any long trips with it yet, but it fits very snugly into my OEM Subaru receiver and the pin fits very snugly through both, so already I'm anticipating a much more quiet and rattle-free experience than I've had with the Curt & DrawTite equipment on my other vehicles. Will follow up this review with any substantial information. 332013

- C45552

This drawbar is a perfect fit for my vehicle. Feels very sturdy with a high quality look and feel. Wanted something that was one piece instead of separate parts that needed assembly and this is the one. Thanks etrailer for great communication and speedy delivery. 286894

- C45552

Very good quality item. Although I needed to buy a hitch adaptor as I have a 2" hitch. I'm using this with a European bike rack so I don't need the towing capabilities though. 148900

- C45552

It was easy to install the product to our hitch so that it will make it easier to place our trailer in the area we need to. 138122

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch, Wiring and Ball Mount for 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12002 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara. This is a Class II trailer hitch that will provide a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening and a 3,500 pound towing capacity. I also recommend checking the towing capacity of your vehicle as listed in the owner's manual. I have attached the installation details for your review. Please note that Curt requires all non-trailer loads such as bike racks and cargo carriers to be supported...

  • Recommended Euro-Style Ball Mount for a 2015 Nissan Altima with Curt Class I Trailer Hitch
  • The recommended 2 inch Euro style ball mount for Curt trailer hitch # C11352 on a 2015 Nissan Altima is # C45572. I went out to the warehouse and pulled one to take some measurements. From the center of the pin hole to the part of the shank where it starts to bend up is 3 inches. This will work because the rear bumper on the Altima tapers upward above the hitch receiver. At 6-1/2 inches out from the center of the hitch pin hole, where the shank starts to bend straight up, it is at a...

  • 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. If you want the 1-7/8...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Mini Clubman 2012
  • For a 2012 Mini Clubman the recommended hitch is the Curt # C11387 which is a confirmed custom fit. This also fits 2011 model. This hitch has a 2,000 lb towing capacity which you'd need to stay under that weight and the towing capacity for the vehicle listed in the owners manual. I attached an install video for this hitch as well. For a ball mount you'd want the part # C45552 and for trailer wiring part # C59236.

  • Will Curt Hitch C12111 fit a 2016 Ford Escape S Model
  • I am pretty sure you mean to type 2016 Escape, but yes the Curt Hitch part # C12111 has been confirmed as a fit for all models of the 2016 Ford Escape so it would work well on your S model. For a hitch ball with a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball you would want the part # C45551 or for a 2 inch ball # C45552. For trailer wiring you would want the part # C56335.

  • Availability of Ball Mount with Built-in Hitch Ball
  • We do have ball mounts with the ball installed like the Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball - 2" Drop - 7,500 lbs # C45036. If you do a search of "ball mount with ball" all of the available products will come up and you can choose one based on drop/rise and ball size. We also have the Euro-style drawbar. A Euro-style drawbar is a one piece unit, with the trailer ball permanently welded to the drawbar, versus a standard drawbar that uses a trailer ball that can be removed. I have...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2016 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid
  • I checked with Curt and they list trailer hitch # C12120 as a fit for all versions of the 2016 Acura RLX. If you will be doing some towing I recommend the Euro style ball mounts # C45552 for a 2 inch ball or # C45551 for a 1-7/8 inch. For trailer wiring I recommend # 118626 to add a 4-Way flat trailer connector to the rear of the vehicle.

  • Choosing the Right Curt Class II Euro Style Ball Mount to Tow a Trailer Level
  • If you are measuring to the top of the coupler then I will have to ask for the measurement to the bottom of the coupler instead. This is because the coupler covers the ball so the measurement to the bottom of the coupler provides a more accurate representation of what kind of rise or drop is needed to tow a trailer level. I am willing to bet that the measurement to the bottom of the coupler will have you at just about level. That would make the best Curt Euro-style ball mount with a...

  • Hitch, Wiring & Ball Mount for 2012 Chevrolet Equinox
  • The Curt Class II Euro style ball mount/ball # C45552 that you referenced will fit in Class II hitch receiver # C12291 from Curt. This hitch is a confirmed fit for your 2012 Chevrolet Equinox. Please note that your car can also be fitted with a larger 2-inch Class III hitch, either Curt # 13591 or Draw-Tite # 76028, which offers the highest capacity of all hitches we have for the vehicle. 2-Inch hitches also offer better compatibility with hitch-mount accessories like bike and cargo...

  • What Happens to Center Reverse Light When Hitch is Installed on a 2004 Mini Cooper
  • The rear center light of your 2004 Mini Cooper will need to be removed to install the Curt hitch part # C11126. The hole where the light was is where the hitch opening will come out. Check out the install instructions link I attached for more info on how the hitch installs. For trailer wiring you would need the part # 119190KIT, for a ball mount # C45551 for a 1-7/8 inch ball or part # C45552 for a 2 inch ball.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 1992 Mercedes 400E
  • There is a special circumstance when using a Class I trailer hitch for towing. Basically you will have to use the ball mount specified by the hitch manufacturer or it can void the warranty. This is to ensure that the wrong ball mount is not used (which could be too much stress on a Class I hitch). Trailer hitch C11085 does not fit your 1992 Mercedes 400E. The hitch you need is # C11816. The recommended ball mount for this hitch is # C45503. For a compatible 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256...

  • Class II Curt Hitch Fit for 2013 Cadillac SRX
  • For your 2013 Cadillac SRX the Curt Class II hitch part # C12070 is a confirmed fit and would work well. Since you have the port for the trailer wiring the Curt harness part # 56096 would fit and work well. For a 2 inch hitch ball ball-mount you would want the part # C45552 or for 1-7/8 inch part # C45551.

  • Recommendations on a Ball Mount and Lock to Fit a 2011 Honda Odyssey with a 12 inch Hitch Height.
  • You will need two measurements and a little math to determine the correct ball mount for Honda Odyssey. You will need to measure, on level ground, your Honda's hitch height from the top of the receiver hitch opening to the ground. Next, measure from the bottom of your trailer's coupler to the level ground. The difference between these two numbers will determine the rise or drop you will need in your ball mount. I have attached a link that will show in more detail how to choose a correct...
