The Euro style ball really isn’t a good fit for European bike rack. Very loose so the rack sways as you travel down the autobahns,


Comments
While hitch accessories like ball mounts are designed to be snug inside the receiver sometimes they can be a little loose. It could be that the ball mount specs are a little small or that the hitch receiver opening is a little bigger. We recommending using an anti-rattle device such as part # RM-061-125

Love this hitch. It looks and fits my Optima perfectly. I was really pleased to find a modern looking hitch to fit on my car. Very strong, solid construction. I don't plan to pull a large trailer with my car but this will work perfectly for my utility trailer. Very friendly and helpful customer service and it was delivered faster than I hoped for. Extremely pleased. Thanks...

This trailer drawbar with the ball was just the right height and extension for the trailer. I am glad I got the one piece drawbar it is easy to store in the compartment with the spare tire. It is very tight when you first get it so you will need to tap it in out a few times with some spray lube to loosen it up. After that, it goes in and out by hand easily. It does come with the pin.


Comments
After a year of using the trailer drawbar wball on several trips, including a 2,600 mile trip, it is working great. Have not had any issues with it. I dont leave it in when not using it so it still slides in and out easily.

WHEN I ORIGINALLY INSTALLED MY HITCH ON MY CX3 AWD I HAD THIS EUROPEAN BALL. I KEPT IT WHERE MY SPARE TIRE RESIDES. I TOOK MY CX3 IN FOR MY FIRST SERVICE AT MAZDA. THE SERVICE INCLUDED WHEEL ROTATION. I HAD THE WHEEL LOCK KEY IN MY SPARE TIRE AREA. IT'S BEEN ABOUT A MONTH, AND MY NEED TO USE MY TRAILER AROSE AND TO MY SURPRISE THE BALL WAS GONE. I RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE TO REMOVE YOUR BALL WHEN GETTING SERVICE. IT IS UNIQUE IN IT'S DESIGN WHICH I GUESS MAKES IT DESIREABLE TO THIEVES. THIS BALL IS A REPLACEMENT AND WORKS GREAT AS DID THE OTHER ONE. I AM GOING TO WRITE THE MAZDA DEALERSHIP ABOUT THIS AND WHILE I AM NOT ACCUSING THEM DIRECTLY, I AM MAKING THEM AWARE OF THE SITUATION. THIS IS TO PROTECT OTHER FOLKS WHO MAY EXPERIENCE MISSING ITEMS. I FEEL THAT IF I DO NOT INFORM THEM OF THIS, THEN I AM PART OF THE PROBLEM.

I ordered both a Curtis trailer hitch and a Curtis drawbar from etrailer. The hitch I had shipped directly to my mechanic who reported that the fit was perfect and the installation very straight forward. The drawbar was shipped to my house promptly and although I haven't used it yet I forsee no problems.

Nice product, would rather use this compared to a traditional ball mount and ball. Looks sleek, has more clearance, uses a solid shank, and I'm less likely to hit a shin, because I wrapped the shaft in foam pad.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount



  • Picking Out Correct Ball Mount for Towing Trailer with 2016 Mazda CX5
    I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will first measure the height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch while on level ground. Next, you will measure the coupler height from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when the trailer is on level ground. Next, you will need to compute the difference. If the hitch height is...

  • Euro Style Ball Mount Recommendation for 2013 Ford Focus with 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball
    With Class I hitches like what your 2013 Ford Focus would have you have to stick with the ball mount that the manufacturer recommends for it. For a 1-7/8 inch Euro style ball mount you'd need the # C45571 as that is the correct size. This has 2-5/8 inches of rise.

  • Availability of Ball Mount to Fit 1-1/4 inch Hitch that Has Ball Attached
    Sounds like you might be looking for a Euro style ball mount like the part # C45572 which fits a 1-1/4 inch hitch and has a 2 inch ball permanently attached to it. Part # C45571 is similar but has a 1-7/8 inch ball.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Curt Hitch for 2008 BMW 335xi
    With Class I hitches like what is available for your 2008 BMW 335xi, part # C11033 you have to go with the recommended ball mount otherwise the warranty of the hitch is no longer valid. So you have to use the part # C45521 which is what Curt recommends. It has a 2-5/8 inch drop and 3-1/4 inch rise.

  • Curt Euro Ball Mount Recommendation with 1-7/8 inch Diameter Hitch Ball
    Yes, Curt does have a Euro ball mount that has a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball. For that we have the part # C45571 which has a rise of 2-5/8 inches. Or for a rise of 3-1/8 inches you'd want the part # C45561.

  • Which Class I Ball Mount to Use with Draw-Tite Hitch # 24756 for 4-Inch Rise on 2008 Chevrolet HHR
    Draw-Tite hitch # 24756 is a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch that installs in your 2008 Chevrolet HHR without need to drill any new holes on the car's frame. It requires use of a compatible Class I ball mount # 3594 which offers a 4-inch rise. With this ball mount you can use 1-7/8-inch hitch ball # 19256. If you refer to the linked photo you'll see the mount's dimensions. This 10-inch-long ball mount will provide both enough clearance at your bumper and the required 4-inch height...

  • Could 2010 Ford Focus Tow Jet Ski Trailer with Curt Hitch
    As long as the towing capacities of your 2010 Ford Focus (check owners manual) and the Curt hitch part # C11319 don't get exceeded you could tow a jet ski trailer. This hitch has a 2,000 lb trailer weight capacity and 200 lb tongue weight capacity. Typically jet ski trailers are much lighter than that. For a 1-7/8 inch ball mount you would want the part # C45571 or for a 2 inch ball mount part # C45572. For trailer wiring you then would want the part # 118457.

    For your 2015 Infiniti Q50 the Curt hitch part # C11407 has been confirmed as a fit and would work well for you as long as the weight of your trailer when loaded would end up being less than 2,000 lbs total trailer weight and 200 lbs tongue weight. Now you would also need to check the owners manual of the vehicle to determine what the towing capacities are for it and stay under the lesser of the two capacities (hitch and vehicle.)

  • Can Curt Euro Style Ball Mounts be Used in a Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Honda HR-V
    Draw-Tite used to put a stop in the shank behind the hitch pin hole to prevent the use of Class II accessories (which the Curt Euro ball mounts are). Draw-Tite hitch # 24932 for your 2016 HR-V does not have that stop but double check your hitch to make sure it isn't present. If not then you can use a Curt Euro ball mount! For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # C45571. For a 2 inch ball use # C45572.

    The Curt hitch part # C11773 has been confirmed as a fit for your 2002 Acura MDX and has no fit exclusions for versions of your vehicle based on exhaust style so it would fit and work well for you. For a 1,000 lb jetski and trailer this hitch would fit and work well. You really wouldn't need the additional capacity that a 2 inch hitch would provide so this would work well.

    The owners manual of your vehicle will be the final authority on that but from the research I did it looks like 1,500 lbs but that will vary most likely depending on how the vehicle is equipped. The Curt hitch part # C11039 is a confirmed fit for your 2004 Neon and would be a great option. For a 2 inch hitch ball the part # C45572 would work great and then for a 1-7/8 inch you would want the part # C45571. For trailer wiring you would want the part # 18252.

Talk about turning some heads! I checked with Curt and they have a Gold level installer at the Sears at the Lima, Ohio shopping mall who could install hitch # C11034 on your 2005 Chevy Corvette.

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch Fit a 2006 Chevy Corvette with Corsa Cat Back Exhaust
    Trailer hitches including # C11380 are designed for and tested on stock vehicles so I cannot say for sure if it will fit with aftermarket exhaust installed on your 2006 Vette. But if the new exhaust has the exact same dimensions as the stock exhaust and installs in exactly the same way then the hitch would fit. If you plan on doing any towing with the hitch then you can use 1-7/8 inch ball mount # C45571 or 2 inch ball mount # C45572. And for wiring you would need # 56014 .

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12343 has a shipping weight of 24-lbs; about 1-1/2 to 2-lbs of that is going to be the packaging. 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 I...

    If the trailer weighs less than 2,000 lbs the Curt hitch part # C11555 that you referenced would be capable of towing it. This hitch has a 2,000 lb total trailer capacity and 200 lb tongue weight capacity. To complete your towing setup you would want the part # C45572 for a ball mount with a 2 inch ball or part # C45571 for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball. For trailer wiring you would then want the Curt Harness part # C56158. I attached an install video for this plus one for the hitch as well.
