Review of Curt Ball Mounts C45026


Today we'll be reviewing part number C45026. This is the Curt Class-I Draw Bar made from a sturdy steel construction. It has a black gloss powder coat finish so it is going to stand up well against rust and corrosion. This mount goes through a high-quality manufacturing process, a CNC machine for consistent cuts and welds and it goes through a 7-stage washing method to help deliver a nice clean, smooth surface. Both the drop and rise positions are available to help ensure a more level tow. You see here that it does have a hollow shank here on the back side. When choosing a hitch ball, you want to make sure that shank of the hitch ball does not exceed the ball hole diameter which, for this mount, is going to measure right at 3/4". This is the portion here that's going to slide into the receiver tube of the hitch.

This is the shank of the mount. What you'd do is you'd slide this portion in, line up your pin holes and then, you're going to need a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. These items are sold separately. You can refer to the Mounts product page in the Related Items to view those products or you can go to our website and type in part number PC2 and it will refer you to this 1/2" pin that comes with a clip. When it's installed in this position, this would be the drop position. We from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the ball platform.

It's going to give us a drop of 3 1/4". When installed in the rise position doing that same measurement, it's going to us a maximum rise of 2 5/8". The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of this portion here is going to measure about 6". The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank is going to measure 1 1/2". The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of our ball hole is going to measure 9 3/8". This mount is going to provide us with a tongue-weight capacity of 200 pounds and a gross trailer weight capacity of 2,000 pounds.

Because of the weight rating, it is classified as a Class-I draw bar. Here at the front, our draw bar thickness is going to be 3/4". Actually, it's just going to measure right over 1/2" at about 5/8" and about 2" in width. That's going to complete today's review of part number C45026. This is the Curt Class-I Draw Bar rated at 2,000 pounds. .
