Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45591 Review

Today we'll be reviewing Part Number C45591. This is the Curt Class 2 Euro Style Draw Bar with a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball. It's going to provide a rise of 3-1/8 of an inch rated at it's rated at 3,500 pounds. The European style ball mount features a permanently attached hitch ball. Comes from a nice sturdy steel construction with a nice solid shank here on the back of our ball mount. this does have a corrosion resistant design with a chrome plated ball and a durable carbide black powder coat finish on the ball mount. This 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 mounts products page under related items to view those products, or you can go to our website and type in Part Number PC2 and its going to refer you to this 1/2 inch in diameter pin and clip. This 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 simply just take your ball mount, slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up your pin hole, and install your pin and clip.

This ball mount is going to provide a gross towing weight of 3,500 pounds with a maximum tongue weight of 350 pounds. Once again it does have a hitch ball size of 1-7/8 of an inch. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball is going to measure 11-1/4 inch. It's going to provide a rise of 3-1/8 of an inch. That measurement is taken 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 C45591.

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

Fits perfect on my 2008 Volvo C70. I like the way it fits the contour of the bumper and brings the tow height up to a good working level. 542759

Just what I wanted 274146

Great Product! After installing a Curt (C11184) Hitch on my '08 BMW 135i convertible, I needed a drawbar and ball. I really liked the elegant design and one piece simplicity that this one has. It is very sturdy and the dimension measurements were accurate. The whole reason I got it was to trailer my new (old) wood boat home from the barn I found it in. Once the hitch was on and the (56146KIT) Wiring kit was installed. This drawbar slid right in. Thanks to the accurate measurements the trailer sat at the perfect height the first time. 144090

Its now been a year and the hitch is still working wonderfully. I get plenty of comments from folks on how cute it looks. Its simple, non rugged appearance, while being strong as an ox, really works well with my little BMW convertible and delicate appearing wood boat. It was a great purchase

I installed the receiver and hitch yesterday and pulled my new trailer to Lowe's today. Everything went according to plan and worked perfectly. I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend this website to anyone. *2004 Ford Taurus 70927

I use it all the time and love it.

looks nice on my triglide 32037

- C45591

I needed to raise up my ball height slightly and pull it back a small amount from the bumper. Plugged into my Hiden hitch I purchase from you when I purchased my Focus Wagon. It helped level out my foldup trailer just right. Looks kool and seem's to work perfectly. 22351


Ask the Experts about this Curt Ball Mounts

  • Looking for a 50mm Trailer Hitch Ball
    We do have some 50mm balls: # 63912 # EH53C-C # 337RB50MM The bigger issue you are likely to run into is the electrical requirements of a European trailer versus one for the US market. In Europe they have separate circuits for all the lights on a trailer. Here in the states we have one circuit for both left brake light and turn signal, one circuit for both right brake light and turn signal, one circuit for all running/tail lights, and one ground. Five, 6, and 7-Ways have additional...

  • 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...

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch for 2000 Lincoln Town Car Come with the Mounting Hardware
    Yes, all of the hardware needed for installation is included with Curt trailer hitch # C12130. If you plan on doing some towing you can use the nifty Curt Euro ball mount # C45592 for a 2 inch ball or # C45591 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. And for trailer wiring you can use # 119147KIT to add a 4-Way flat to the rear of the vehicle.

  • Compatibility of Anti-Rattle Device with Bike Rack Secured by a Hitch Ball
    Curt Class I trailer hitch # C11406 is confirmed to fit properly on your 2016 Honda Fit. However, the hitch I recommend instead is the Draw-Tite # 24920. This hitch installs identically and has the very same capacity but it costs less and does not have the requirement of using the support strap # 18050 which Curt specifies for maintaining the warranty on your hitch when it is used with a non-trailer load like a bike rack. My contact at Thule confirmed that they used to offer a hitch-ball-mount...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2012 Chevrolet Cruze With 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
    We have a couple different style ball mounts that will work with the hitch on your Cruze. For a standard ball mount I recommend the Curt, part # C45522. This ball mount has a 3-7/8 inch rise to help provide a bit more ground clearance. For a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball I recommend part # C40001, and for a 2-inch ball I recommend part # C40018. If you like the looks of the Euro ball mounts I recommend part # C45592 that comes with a 2-inch hitch ball and I recommend part # C45591 for a...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for Trailer That Is Further From My Vehilce
    Good news, I can help. What you will want to do is get a different ball mount. The current ball mount that you have # C45571 has a length of 7-1/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole and a rise of 2-5/8" (from top of inside of hitch opening to start of vertical curve). It also has a 1-7/8" ball. I recommend a long ball mount like # C45591. This euro ball has the 1-7/8" ball and a length of 11-1/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole with a rise...

  • Euro Style Ball Mount Recommendation for Draw Tite Hitch on 2001 Honda Odyssey
    For a Class II Euro style ball mount that would work well with your Draw Tite hitch part # 36417 we have the part # C45591 for a ball mount with a 3-1/8 inch rise which would work well. Or we have the part # C45571 which has a 2-5/8 inch rise. Both of these have 1-7/8 inch balls.

  • What is the Ground Clearance with a CURT Trailer Hitch Installed on a 2012 Volkswagen Eos
    I spoke with my contact at CURT regarding trailer hitch # 11090. What you can do is measure from the bottom of the vehicle frame straight down 8-1/2 inches. This is where the bottom of the receiver will be when the hitch is installed. So if you measure from that point to the ground (on level ground) that will give you the ground clearance measurement. If you used a ball mount with a 5 inch rise and a ball that is 2 inches tall, add seven inches to get a general idea of where the top...

  • Which Will have Better Ground Clearance Ball Mount C45510 or Euro Drawbar C45591
    Curt Class II ball mount # C45510 will actually be a little better with ground clearance compared to Euro drawbar # C45591 because it doesn't stick out as far and does not have as much of the steel shank below the ball.
