Use this fuse-disconnect system to prep your vehicle to be towed. Simply relocate your car's fuses with this bypass and flip the integrated switch. To drive your car, just flip the switch back on. No need to remove or replace your fuses.

  • Bypasses towed car's fuses so you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery
    • Provides a simple alternative to removing fuses every time you tow
    • Stores fuse so that you won't lose it
  • Installs quickly, easily and permanently
    • Remove fuses from car's fuse box and install bypass in their place
    • Put fuses into fuse holders
    • Mount bypass switch near fuse box
  • Maintains functionality of high-amp fuses when switched on
    • Flip switch to "drive" position and drive like normal
  • Overrides fuses when switched off
    • Flip switch to "tow" position and you're good to tow


Specs:

  • Application: ATC/ATO fuses
  • 1-Year warranty


Note: Consult vehicle's owner's manual to determine which fuses to pull. Do not install a fuse in the Curt Fuse ByPass that has more than a 20-amp rating.


Some automobiles can only be towed if you get under the hood and pull a fuse. If you don't remove this fuse before towing, there's a good chance that your car's battery will be drained by the time you reach your destination.


With this bypass, once the initial installation is complete, you won't have to remove or replace your fuse again. Just pull the fuse indicated in your car's owner's manual and replace it with the bypass. After you install the bypass, insert the removed fuse into the holder of the bypass system. With the fuse installed in this manner, it will still be able to function as needed. Mount the included switch near the fuse box and you're set.


Whenever you need to drive your car, just make sure the switch is flipped into the "drive" position. When on, the fuse will be active and your vehicle will function normally. Then, when it comes time to tow, switch the bypass to "tow." This will render the fuse inactive so that you can flat tow your car without its battery being drained.

Video Transcript for Review of Curt Tow Bar Wiring - Two Circuit ATC ATO Fuse By Pass Switch - C73HR

Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this Curt Two Circuit ATC/ATO Fuse Bypass Switch for towed vehicles. Now some vehicles can only be towed if you get under the hood and pull a fuse. And if you don't remove the fuse before towing, there's a good chance that your car's battery will be drained by the time you reach your destination. So that's where you'll use this fuse disconnect system to prep your vehicle to be towed.

Very simple to install. You just simply relocate your car's fuses that are indicated in your vehicle's owner's manual with this bypass and then flip the integrated switch. So basically what you'll do is remove the two fuses from your fuse box and in place of where you removed the fuses, you will insert these connectors in the place of those and then the fuses you took out, you will install them back into these inline fuse holders right here. Once they're installed, go ahead and put the cap over them to protect them. Now you're ready.

What you're wanna do is you have your switch on this end, if you flip the switch to the tow position, you're good to tow. This will render the fuses inactive so that you can flat-tow your car without its battery being drained. And then when you unhook the car and you're ready to drive it, you can just flip it the other way, turn it back on and there's no need to have to remove or replace your fuses every time. Now this switch, you do probably want to mount this near your fuse box. Also a nice thing is because you have them here, you're storing the fuses so that you won't lose it.

In other words, when you take them out, you do have to usually store them somewhere and then put them back in. So when you take them out this way, you got them right here. You don't have to worry about losing them. As we mentioned, this does install very quickly and easily and permanently. Does conclude a nice set of installation instructions on how it installs and this does maintain the functionality of the high-amp fuses when it is switched on.

The application for this, we mentioned, is for ATC and ATO fuses. One note I do want to mention, do not install a fuse in this bypass that has more than a 20 amp rating. But that should do it for the review on the Curt Two Circuit ATC/ATO Fuse Bypass Switch for towed vehicles..

While attempting to install it was impossible to plug in and get it to stay in place. The spade end broke before I was able to get it properly installed. Had to Jerry-rig it to get this inferior product to work. Not worth the time or money.

Good product and great service

These are a good alternative to the Roadmaster bypass switches and also cost less. I ended up pulling the wiring out of the plastic conduit. The area where this is used doesn't need it and doing that made it much easier to work with. I made my own labels for Drive and Tow positions. Two of these were worked great at bypassing the four fuses that had to be pulled for flat towing a 2019 Chevrolet Sonic. I used some of my wife's fingernail polish to indicate the drive position, "still need to touch that up a bit". See photo.

Part performed as advertised.

For a normal mini ATO plug in fuse block this would be great! My 2012 Honda CRV uses mini ATO fuses where the contact is made on the side of the fuse as it slides in. The two separate blade connectors at the end of the switch wiring are VERY HARD to get to stay in the fuse block! I made a small plastic wedge to slide between the blade connectors to force them to stay in position. The quality of the switch is great and installation is easy but if you're trying to put it in a 2012 Honda CRV (and maybe other Honda's with this style fuse block) be aware of this issue.!!

Leads did not fit into the fuse holder. Could not use.
