Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45561 Review

Speaker: Today we'll be reviewing Part No. C45561, this is the Curt Class 2 Euro Style Draw Bar with 1 7/8 hitch ball providing the the 3 1/8 inch rise is rated at 3500 lbs. The European-style ball mount features permanently attached hitch ball, has a really nice sturdy steel construction. The only hollow point on this mount is where your hitch pin goes through the hitch pinhole. Has a solid shank here on the back side. How this works is you slide this in to the receiver tube of your hitch, you then line up your hitch pinhole and secure it with a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. Those are required but they're sold separately. You can refer to this product's page under related items to view those products.

This does have a corrosion resistant design. It has a chrome-plated ball and a durable carbide black powder coat finish on the ball mount itself. It goes through a high-quality manufacturing process. It's CNC machine for strong consistent cuts and welds and it has a seven-stage washing method that ensures a smooth clean surface. The draw bar can only be used in the rise position. Again, this is designed to work with a 1 1/4 inch by 1 1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver.

It's going to provide a gross ton weight of 3500 lbs with a max ton weight of 350 lbs. The hitch ball size is a 1 7/8 inch ball. The measurement from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of our ball is going to measure 9 3/4 inches and this does have a rise of 3 1/8 of an inch. That measurement is taken from the inside toppage of the receiver tube to the start of the vertical curve. I lay this ruler in this position and take this one and we can go straight across here.

You can see that measures right at the 3 1/8 inch mark. That's going to complete today's review of Part No. C45561, that's the Curt Class 2 Euro Style Draw Bar with a 1 7/8 inch hitch ball. .

After speaking with an etrailer phone rep, I did some measuring and opted for this Curt Euro-style drawbar. It looks good on my 2018 Kia Niro, and gets the ball height up 2" and back 3" from where my old ball mount was (much too close to license plate and trailer a bit low in front). For my car, it's the perfect match with the Curt trailer hitch. 505472

I purchased a 2 inch ball model about a year ago and I have used it several times, I recently bought a new trailer and needed a 1? ball so I knew who to go to without hesitation. I like how the euro style drawbar hugs the shape of my vehicle (Dodge Dart) and has a clean look, doesn't look like a typical clunky hitch. Etrailer is fast,friendly and knowledgeable and I will continue to use them! 332184

I can see why people usually buy the generic hitch risers or droppers that you can screw different size balls onto but this riser/ball looks and works so much better and I bet 90% of people never change out the ball anyway. I purchased the 1-7/8" but later needed a 2" as well, now have two separate risers and wouldn't have it any other way. One year now and no rust or major wear. 257205

by:

Solid bar construction not hollow. Powdercoating or paint (can't tell) doesn't scratch easily. I tend to destruction test most of my hitches for some reason, tossed on the ground, garage, shelf, trunk etc. Does the job and the rise is enough to keep most of my trailers flat which I prefer to the slightly tilted. Drawbar is used on a 2002 VW Jetta. 179036

Service from eTrailer was great, they even wrote to ensure I got the order correct when I ordered a different size hitch cover than the drawbar that I ordered.

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


  • How to Tow a Trailer with a 2017 Ford Fusion SE
  • In order to tow a trailer with your 2017 Ford Fusion, you are going to need a trailer hitch, wiring harness, and ball mount/hitch ball. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12091 which has a Class II rating with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. This hitch is a direct fit for your Fusion and will not require any drilling. It is also very easy to install as you can see in the attached video. Then for a wiring harness, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring...

  • Will Euro-Style Ball Mount fit Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on 2006 VW Jetta
  • The undercarriage on TDI and non-TDI models of your 2006 VW Jetta is different enough in a number of areas that disqualify the Curt # C11474 from being a fit, it is definitely not the muffler only. It is designed to angle at both ends of the crosstube, whereas the Draw-Tite # 24866 has a crosstube which is straight at one end, allowing for more flexibility during the install. The good news is that the Euro-Style Drawbar # C45561, which has a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball, or # C45562, which...

  • Comparing Hitches Available for 2007 Suzuki SX4
  • A Euro-style ballmount could be used in the Curt Class I, part # C11443. The # C45561 offers a 1-7/8 inch ball on a 3-1/8 inch rise. The Euro ball mounts are actually rated for a Class II hitch, but as long as you don't exceed the 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the hitch, you'll be fine. The Draw-Tite # 24817 hitch has a stop welded or punched into the receiver tube that prevents a Class II rated accessory from being inserted far enough into the receiver tube for the hitch pin holes...

  • 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...

  • Least Visible Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Dodge Charger
  • The least visible hitch we have for your 2016 Dodge Charger Scat Pack is going to be the Draw Tite # 36548 that you referenced. This hitch has a 1-1/4 inch opening which would be smaller than the 2 inch hitches and due to it's safety chain loop design would be less visible than the Draw Tite. This hitch fits all models of the 2016 Charger as well. The hitch has more than enough capacity to tow your trailer but you would need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to be sure you don't...

  • 50mm Ball and Getting Lights to Work on Altera Strada DL3 Bike Rack on 2016 Chrysler Town & Country
  • We do have 50mm hitch ball # EH53C-C so all you will need now is a ball mount that fits the 2 inch receiver on your 2016 Chrysler Town & Country. Since the trailer hitches are close to the ground on vans I recommend a ball mount with some rise in it such as Draw-Tite ball mount # 40346. The electrical is a little more complicated but the good news is that you don't have to have lights on a bike rack in the US. But if you want them to function then an adapter will need to be made since...

  • How to Determine Ball Mount Rise Needed for 2013 VW Jetta Sportwagen
  • To determine the rise/drop you need, you'll need to determine the height difference between your receiver and the trailer coupler. I've linked you to an FAQ article that shows how to do this. I've linked you to the Euro Style ball mounts we offer, be sure to choose one with a 1-7/8 inch ball

  • Availability of Euro-Style Ball Mount for Curt Class I Hitch Installed on 2009 Toyota Carolla
  • The Curt # C45561 Euro-Style ball mount you referenced is exactly what you'll need. The ball mount will work fine with your # C11265 Class I hitch once it's installed. Keep in mind that the ball mount carries a 3500 lb towing/350 lbs tongue weight rating, but that your hitch is only rated for 2000 lbs towing/ 200 lbs tongue weight. Because of that difference in capacity between the hitch and the ball mount, you'll need to abide by the rating of the lower rated component, which would be...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Jaguar S-Type
  • Yes we do. The Curt hitch you referenced is actually a fit for your 2004 Jaguar S-Type and would work well. For a ball mount with a 2 inch ball you would want the part # C45562 or for one with a 1-7/8 inch ball you would want the part # C45561. For trailer wiring you would then want the part # 56195.

  • Would Curt Trailer Hitch for 2016 Volkswagen Jetta Tow Motocross Bike Trailer
  • Looking at the picture you sent in of your motorcycle trailer it would pretty easily weigh less than the 2,000 lb capacity of the Curt Hitch part # C11474 that is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Volkswagen Jetta. You probably have about 400 lbs of dirt bikes and the trailer probably only weighs a few hundred lbs as well. For a ball mount with a 2 inch ball you would want the part # C45562 or for 1-7/8 inch ball you would want the # C45561. For trailer wiring you then would want the...

  • Could 2001 Honda Accord Tow Small Trailer with Motorcycles
  • The total trailer weight and tongue weight you mentioned having of 55 lb tongue weight and 455 lb total trailer weight would fall well within the towing capacity of your Accord so you'd be totally safe with this setup. I know you have a hitch already but for trailer wiring then the kit we'd recommend is the part # 118336 because it installs very easily and has the most reliable converter box of the kits we offer. For ball mounts you'd want the part # C45562 for if the trailer needs a...

  • Curt Euro Ball Mount Recommendation with 1-7/8 inch Diameter Hitch Ball
  • Yes, Curt does have a Euro ball mount that has a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball. For that we have the part # C45571 which has a rise of 2-5/8 inches. Or for a rise of 3-1/8 inches you'd want the part # C45561.

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch Fit 2015 Dodge Charger SRT
  • We checked with Curt and they state that their Class II hitch part # C12064 is a fit for all models of the 2015 Dodge Charger including your SRT model so we can also guarantee it as a fit. For a ball mount with a 1-7/8 inch ball you would need part # C45561 or a 2 inch ball part # C45562. For trailer wiring you would need the part # C56234.

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2016 Ford Fusion Titanium
  • The Tow Ready Wiring Harness part # C56302 is trailer wiring that has been confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Ford Fusion Titanium so I would recommend it for you. If you need a trailer hitch the Curt part # C56351 has been confirmed as a fit. For a 1-7/8 inch ball mount the part # C45561 would work or the # C45562 for a 2 inch ball.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2005 Volvo V50 with Curt Trailer Hitch Installed
  • For the Curt hitch part # C11438 that you have installed on your 2005 Volvo V50i has a recommended ball mount, part # C45522. This is a couple inches longer than the # C45561 you currently have so it would give you the clearance you'd need. For a 2 inch hitch ball you'd want the part # C40018 or for a 1-7/8 inch ball part # C40001.

  • Could the Curt Trailer Hitch for a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta Wagon Tow a Jet Ski Trailer
  • The Curt hitch part # C11083 has been confirmed as a fit for your 2001 Volkswagen Jetta Wagon and would have the capacity to tow a trailer as long as it weighed less than 2,000 lbs. You will need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to make sure that it also has the needed capacity to tow your Jet Ski trailer. For a 1-7/8 inch ball mount you would want the part # C45561 or for a 2 inch ball mount # C45562. For trailer wiring you would then want the part # C56175.

  • The Curt hitch part # C11701 is a confirmed fit for your 2007 Mercedes Benz E-350 and has a towing capacity of 2,500 lbs. You'd have to contact a Mercedes dealer or the owner's manual to determine what the vehicle's towing capacity is and be sure not to exceed the lowest capacity between the hitch and the vehicle. For a ball mount you'd want the part # C45561 and then for wiring you'd want the part # 119250KIT which is a confirmed fit and will work well.
