excellent product. but not compatible for United Kingdom as here everything is metric. Uk uses 50mm towball rather than the US 2". My euro model Thule Easyfold xt did not fit on the 2" ball 538793

Heavy duty! I was a little bummed when I found out how much more difficult it was to find a half inch pin for this, but no matter. It is a tad loose inside the hitch, so there's a little rattle, but I doubt it's as noticable as I make it seem. Super classy and a welcome change from the typical draw bar style. Goes great with my Volvo V70 T5. Thanks etrailer.com! 519077

The drawbar appears perfect. Haven't had a chance to use it but I don't anticipate any problem. The company seems to really care about their image which is a very good thing. In my opinion, the only weak point is their cost of freight and the time it took to arrive. I have to admit, I have been spoiled by the master .com company out there which deals in everything. 171960

I installed this on a 2004 Volvo XC70 along with a hitch from etrailer. Both work extremely well for my use (small motorcycle trailer). There's enough clearance between the bumper and the ball to get the trailer connection onto it without scraping the bumper (which is not the case with a 2007 XC70 where I have a similar hitch installed but the bumper plastic is thicker). This drawbar is classy-looking and fits the simple European styling of the car well. Chrome finish on the ball is very tough and I haven't had any rust problems at all. 851116

Your product is a great item, its easy to understand instructions, and it fit right up to where it said it would fit. It's has great workmanship. The only problem I had was with the delivery of the product. They came one about 6:15 pm, and my gate was locked, and from there on it became a problem. I change the address to one of UPS, their own access point, and they could not get it to their own access point for a total of four days and 3 tries they still didnt get it right. Finally, I went to UPS distribution center in West Sacramento, where they told me that my box had busted opened and I told them to give it to me like that that they didn't have to repair the Box I would just look in there and pull out the items. It still remains to be seen if there's a items missing from that box. 594514

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Hitch Ball Compatibility with European Model of Thule Easyfold XT
    The US version of the EasyFold XT # TH903202 utilizes the trailer hitch receiver itself and not the hitch ball. The European style that fits onto the 50mm hitch ball has not been tested on a 2 inch hitch ball so I can't confirm the fit. I reached out to Thule and their North American tech group can't confirm the fit or not as they are not cross trained and don't have the ability to test fit the conversion. For a 50mm ball I recommend # 63912 for a standard ball mount like # 3593 for...

  • Availability of a 2-Inch Version of the Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar with 2-Inch Ball # C45572
    The Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar with 2-Inch Ball # C45572 that you referenced is intended specifically for a particular 1-1/4-inch Curt hitch with a Class II rating. This ball mount/ball combo is only usable with this size and class of hitch. It will not fit a Class I hitch (even though they too are the 1-1/4-inch size). Also, there is no equivalent product offered that will fit a 2-inch hitch, which typically has either a Class III or Class IV designation. However, we do offer...

  • 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...

  • Using Curt # C45572 Euro Ball Mount in Draw-Tite Class I Receiver Hitch
    The Curt # C45572 ball mount will fit in your receiver, and will slide in far enough for the hitch pin to slide into place. However, Draw-Tite only recommends using the # 3593 ball mount in your hitch. I cannot recommend or endorse doing anything contrary to the manufacturer's recommendations. Also, keep in mind that the Curt Euro Ball Mount is rated for Class II, up to 3500 lbs. Your hitch is limited to 2000 lbs. You'll need to abide by the lowest rated component. Before attempting...

  • Comparing Actual Height Rise of Curt Class II Euro Ball Mounts C45572 and C45562
    The nature of the Euro ball mount design, which has a curved shank and a shorter actual ball height than a free-standing hitch ball like # 19258, can allow for multiple interpretations of the actual rise. Not to worry. What I did for you was go to our warehouse and measure these two items. For the time being please ignore the specs and if you would use the following dimension I took on each ball mount. What I did was measure the distance from the TOP of the square shank to the TOP of...

  • How to Pick Out the Correct Rise/Drop Euro Ball Mount
    In order to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount to use with the Curt Hitch part # C11377 you will need to take a couple measurements. The goal is to have your trailer towed as level as possible. In order to do that the correct rise/drop ball mount needs to be used. To pick out the correct one you will need to measure the distance from the top of your hitch opening to the ground and then with your trailer sitting as level as possible measure from the bottom of the coupler to the...

  • 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...

  • Does the Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar with 2" Ball Come with a Hitch Pin and Clip
    The Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar with 2" Ball # C45572 does not come with a hitch pin and clip. For that you can use either part # F-4 for the standard hitch pin and clip or the Master Lock # 1472DAT for a locking hitch pin. Attached are review videos for each product listed as well as a link to one of our helpful articles about ball mounts you can check out to make sure the 2-5/8" rise is correct for your application.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a Factory Trailer Hitch on a 2011 Toyota Sienna
    On hitches that we have installed on a 2011 Toyota Sienna, we have found that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to clear the rear bumper measured approximately 5-1/4 inches. I do not know what the factory installed hitch measurement is, so you will want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the distance required to clear the rear bumper.

You'll want to choose a ball mount that will place the trailer ball at the correct height so that your trailer is towed level. I'll link you to an FAQ article that shows how to measure the height of the receiver and the height of the coupler. The difference between these two measurements is the rise or drop you'll need.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation and Capacity for a 2012 Honda Accord
    For your 2012 Honda Accord the Draw Tite Hitch # 24899 would be a great choice. This hitch has the capacities of 2,000 lb total trailer weight and 200 lbs tongue weight. When determining the towing capacity of a vehicle the lowest rated component will be the actual towing capacity since a setup is only as strong as it's weakest part. You will need to check the towing capacity for your vehicle in the owners manual and you will need to go with the lower capacity between the hitch and the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Honda Fit Sport
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11406 is a fit for all 2018 Honda Fit models including the Sport. If you will be using this for a bike rack or other accessory, you will also need the stability strap # 18050 to keep your manufacturer warranty in tact. If you will be towing a light trailer, I recommend the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56395 and ball mount # C45571 or # C45572.

  • Can a 2012 Ford Focus Tow a 600 lbs Total Jon Boat?
    According to your owners manual, your 2012 Ford Focus should never tow a trailer and is not equipped to tow. Using a trailer hitch like # C11158 is ideally to be used for accessories like a bike rack. Your vehicle has a payload rating between 935 and 1,055 lbs so if somehow you fit it inside your vehicle Ford would be okay with it. I personally would tow that trailer (but not anything larger than the jon boat) and you would be operating outside of Ford's warranty and recommendation. Based...

If you do decide to tow, then you will absolutely want to go with the lightest, smallest of the trailers. For a diesel model of '17 Cruze the available trailer hitch from Curt is part # C11492, and since you mentioned 2" ball I assume you are also using the...

If you are towing with a trailer that accepts that only the 50mm hitch ball, deviating from that recommendation could potentially cause towing issues. Since the 50mm ball is required, I recommend using the Curt Drawbar # C45521 with 50 mm Hitch Ball # 63912 with trailer hitch # C11337.

This hitch does come with all of the hardware needed to install your hitch. If you're going to be towing with this hitch, you'll also need a wiring harness, ball mount and hitch ball. For the wiring I recommend using the Tekonsha # 118405 because I've found that the Tekonsha harness converter boxes are a bit more reliable over time. For the hitch ball...
