Easy installation, good manual. No problems on day to day use.


Excellent product. Good professional advise given so that I bought the right product to fit my existing hitch. Courteous, professional service. High quality, good value product. Fast shipping at reasonable cost. Highly recommended. If if need other products this is the place


Worked perfectly.

Super easy installation
and it carried a U-haul 5x8 trailer 1000 miles with almost full capacity on tow-limits.

A little disappointed that the connecting rod doesn't fit perfectly into the receiver hitch. So, when there is no weight on the ball mount, it is wobbly and makes an annoying metal-to-metal clinking noise whenever you go over a ditch. You can easily correct it with a piece of cardboard stuffing for cushioning or just take it off when not it use.

Great piece of equipment, works perfectly! Super happy with the purchase.


Great service, very helpful and friendly. If I need anything else in that line I will certainly use them



Been no trouble, it was easy to fit.


Everything arrived pretty quick and the install wasn't too difficult for 1 person (would've helped to have an extra set of hands). Took a couple tries to line everything up and realize that certain brackets needed to be unbolted before the hitch would align (tow hook on passenger side, and a couple near the rear driver's side exhaust hanger).
Minimal trimming required for the underside of the rear bumper plastic on the driver's side to make room on an 05 wrx wagon. Also needed at least 1 extra long exhaust hanger (kartboy) for the rear to make everything level with my 3" turbo back APS exhaust.
Haven't gotten a chance to tow with it yet, but it feels solid.


My hitch ball fits like a glove into the receiver I installed this summer on my 2003 Suburu Baja. The ordering experience was easy and inspiring. Why can't all websites be so intelligent? I haven't used the hitch yet, but it's solid as a rock so I have no doubts all will be well.


Pin broke with smallest UHaul trailer (unloaded) on back, dropping the hitch and trailer in the road. Fixed it with a better pin and hitch works fine now.


Easy to slide in and out of the hitch receiver, and it doesn't even rattle around and create noise when I'm towing.


Very heavy this product is. I was very surprised when I picked up the box it came in and felt the weight, which makes me glad I bought a bag to carry it in. The last hitch I ever got, from another plac, because I needed it in a pinch for my last car during a move, wasn't even close to being as heavy and it was about the same size and had the same weight capacity. The metal on that one also didn't seem right either, didn't have the smooth coating this one does. I am quite confident this ball mount from Curt, who has been in this business for decades, will easily take the weight of my trailer, which I use for things like mulch and stone, and then some.

Of course I don't ever plan to over load it, but if something ever happens that requires me to make fast lane changes, I am confident the ball mount won't give out on me. I will still use good safety chains though, I'd be foolish not to. If it's one thing I learned i life, anything can happen no matter how much you prepare ahead of time.



So far its worked well for my trailer, making mulch and plant runs much easier


The hitch install was easy, the electrical was a bit more tedious, but all is working well.


Excellent quality


Works good


Good deal for this high quality combo.


Love it ! Great product for the price


Received my Curt Towing starter kit for 1-1/4” hitches within four days. Made from quality material and craftsmanship. Looks and works great.

Jack J.


After a year using my Curt Towing kit I’m extremely pleased. Great, durable quality product. Thanks for fast efficient service.


Hitch looks great. Staff was very helpf ul


Good fit. Works well.


you guy rock !


Excellent customer service and great quality products


Quality product, well made, but design could be improved. The square bar that slides into the receiver on the car/truck is too long, resulting in the hitch ball being about a foot behind the bumper, at least it is on 2004 Ford Explorer. It becomes a trip, knee, or hinge hazard if not removed after towing.


Absolutely what I expected. Installed in less than four minutes.


Best price on small shank ball mount.


Hitch arrived on time, however wiring component was incorrect, the exchange process for the right piece was efficient and timely, no problem.


Product was exactly as advertised.


Etrailer products arrive exactly as
described, they are easy to install and they are manufactured to a very high quality. I installed these on my Honda Accord and it was flawless.

I highly recommend them - David

  • Availability of Multipurpose Ball Mount for a 1-1/4 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    When you get to the small 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers there tends to be more restrictions on what they can accomplish due to their lighter weight capacities. Unfortunately there are no multi-purpose, or special ball mounts that can be used with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. You will only be able to use the regular ball mounts. Keep in mind that when choosing the correct ball mount for towing you will want to take your trailer and tow vehicle to a level area and measure from the ground...

  • Availability of 1-1/4 inch Stainless Steel Ball Mount with 2 inch Hitch Ball
    We do carry 1-1/4 inch ball mounts with a 2 inch diameter hitch ball already installed on it in steel, but it is not stainless steel. The steel ball mounts do come with a black powder coat finish though that protects it against rust and corrosion. When deciding the correct ball mount for your application you will want to look at the Rise and Drop that it has to offer and choose one that has the appropriate Rise or Drop for your application. For example the Curt # C45147 has a 1-1/4 inch...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 1-1/2" Hitch Receiver and 2" Hitch Ball for 2,700 lbs Towing
    We do have a variety of ball mounts that fit your description, you just need to make sure the one you choose has the correct rise or drop to fit your application (see attached helpful article). For example, the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 1-1/4" Hitches # C45147 fits all of your criteria and then has a 3/4" rise and a 1-1/4" drop so if that matches what you're needing then you'll be good to go!

  • How to Choose Correct Ball Mount for Towing with a 2009 Audi A6
    The correct ball mount for your 2009 Audi A6 really depends on the hitch that's installed and the height of your trailer coupler when the trailer is leveled out. For example, when we installed the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver 24836 on a 2008 Audi A6 we found the receiver height (ground to inside top of receiver) was 10". So if the bottom of your trailer coupler is 11" then you need the Curt Towing Starter Kit # C45147 which has a 3/4" rise and comes with a 2" hitch ball. Attached...

    From my research on your 2016 Nissan Altima, it is not recommended to tow a trailer or vehicle dolly.

  • Is Underbody Trim Panel Reinstalled on 2023 Mazda 3 For Draw-Tite Hitch Installation
    Yes, to install the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24984 on your 2023 Mazda 3 you will need to remove that panel and it won't be put back into place. Hitch instructions only mention this when the hitch either prevents the panel fitting back into place or there is excessive trimming that needs to be done on the panel for it to fit back in place so it's easier to just remove it and leave it off. If you'll be using the hitch for towing I recommend installing the T-One Wiring...

  • Is There a Ball Mount for a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch With 1 Inch of Rise
    The good news is that the additional 1/4" of rise you are trying to obtain is likely not going to be necessary when towing a trailer. The vehicle should sag a bit once you attach the trailer so more than likely, the ball mount you have now will work just fine for you. I would not worry about the additional 1/4" or so when towing a trailer as it will not have any negative effect. The bad news is that we do not offer a high rise hitch ball that will fit the Curt Towing Starter Kit for...

The only hitch available is a class 2 hitch like the # C12239 which has a 1-1/4" square receiver and a 3,500 lb towing capacity. You can absolutely still use this hitch for a small trailer. You will simply need a ball mount to go with the 1-1/4" hitch. For that I recommend the Curt starter kit # C45147 which comes with a draw bar, pin and clip and a 2" trailer ball.

  • Availability Of A 1-1/4" Draw Bar And 1-7/8" Ball With 0" Of Rise
    Happy Monday to you as well! I do have a potential solution for you. We do not carry a draw bar with a true 0" rise, but what you can do is use the Curt Class 2 Drawbar # C45503. This has a 3/8" rise, and will be the closest thing we have to a 0" rise. You can use it with the 1-7/8" hitch ball # C40001. Keep in mind that with this setup, you are limited to towing 2,000 lbs or less.

  • Is There a 1-1/4" Ball Mount with a 1" Diameter Hitch Ball Shank Diameter
    I may have a solution for you, but unfortunately the Curt # C45147 has a 3/4" hole for the hitch ball shank and I'm unable to locate any of the ball mounts we have available for a 1-1/4" hitch receiver that will allow for a larger than 3/4" shank diameter.
