Corrosion-resistant ball mount is 7-1/4" long and fits 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers.


Disappointed that no bolt and nut provided to secure fitting through hole in mount For that small expense now I have to go to a store to finish setting up to use your productReally folks how much money did you save for not including securing pin?


I highly recommend etrailer hitch and wiring harness They were both easy to install. The Prius pull the motorcycle camping trailer very well. You would not even know it was hooked to the car


Fits in a Curt Class 1 receiver. Don't forget to order the locking pin separately.


Quality is good, after one year of abuse it's holding up well. The size though is a little large, I had to pull out a sledgehammer to fit it in the receiver.


I ordered a trailer hitch and a drawbar and both came quickly and was an exact match for my vehicle


Easy to install and worked as needed. Videos and instructions made installation simple.


Three stars only due to my specific case on the factory-installed hitch on a 2015 VW Tiguan. The black powder coat finish was applied extremly thick, and as such it would not slide into the hitch opening on the Tiguan. The reciever I used on my Jetta wagon slid in without issue, but the ball height woul be excessive, hence the need for this one. I spent about an hour removing the powder coat and appling a thin coat of rust preventitive paint in order to use it as intended.


As advertised. No problems here.


All the items in my order arrived today. Thanks for your continued follow-up on this order and the speedy shipping once you had the item on hand. I also appreciated the installation video and pictures on etrailer. com. I routinely recommend that my customers reference your website for install instructions and product explanation videos. Keep up the good worK.


From the minute I discovered for my new trailer hitch needs, called them on the phone, got to a live person who helped me order every item I needed, was alerted that my items had been delivered, and opened the door to see a big cardboard box that actually was still in one piece, it was a topnotch experience. Talk about great customer!

I will attach a photo of my hitch once it's installed on July 29.


Install was easy, Still use it to move the empty dolly around when the car is not being towed by the motor home.

I you have a Prius, this is the hitch for you.


The tolerance of off perhaps due to the thicker glossy paint(vs powder coating?) so the draw bar will not go in more then a quarter inche into the hitch. I got a different drawbar that’s looks like it is powder coated paint (non glossy) and that’s slide in smoothly.


Top quality, Made in US Curt ball mount. It's only class 1, but that is perfect for towing a 1200# Scamp behind a VW. Etrailer had it in stock, shipped it quickly. A great online buying experience. Thanks!


Item has been installed on tow bar, but will not be used for at least a month. It is my best estimate of what I need for a new trailer I purchased, and will pick up mid-October, based on information from the trailer people. Shipped together with other items and arrived quickly.


Standard class II ball mount. Receiver insert is made of square tube and drop of solid steel.


the product, a class one bar for a receiver hitch was excellent quality and finish the product was at my doorstep 4 days after the order was made, including the day I placed it. High quality, quick delivery you can;t go wrong


Using this with the Curt hitch to haul my camper. Works great. Solid.

Still works great!
Susan H - 04/08/2017


Product arrived as promised and in new condition and was exactly what I ordered. I am impressed with etrailer and the quality of the products they offer. Try them.


fast shipping
the paint coating is hard
and durable, but it dried with a bead of paint around the end which fits into the receiver. i filed the coating a bit and it was still a bit to tight. it is still hard to remove.
good strong products.


Quick delivery. Just what I ordered. Always a pleasure to do biz with


Nice item, quality that I have come to expect from Curt


The hitch and ball mount came very well packaged. It looks as good as it was pictured. I have yet to install it and can't wait.


I'm very happy with your company and your service. Your selection of products is great and ordering is fast and easy.


This is the third item I've ordered from etrailer. all were correct and a good value. I will use them again.


Very good fit. Mounts easily. Looks good. 1 1/4 hitch was all I needed.

  • How to Find a Ball Mount with the Right Rise or Drop to Tow a Trailer Level with an ATV
    I will be happy to help. To determine the right amount of drop you will need the first step is to take a couple of measurements. Park the ATV and the trailer on level ground. Measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the ATV. Then, level the trailer (as if you were towing it level) and measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. The difference is the amount of drop you will need (unless the trailer is higher then the difference would be the amount of rise...

  • Ball Mount with 2-5/8" Rise/3-1/4" Drop for Class I Trailer Hitch
    From the center of the hitch pin hole to the back part of the shank measures 2" for the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 36071. While the Draw-Tite does fit a 1-1/4" hitch receiver, it's designed for at least a Class II receiver which is why that end portion is a little longer. Some Class I trailer hitches have a stop built in which will keep this option from working. For a Class I ball mount that has the same dimensions we have the Curt # C45022. This measures 1-1/2" from the center of the hitch...

  • 2 inch Hitch Ball Recommendation for the Curt Ball Mount C45022

  • What Ball Mount Will Fit a 1-1/4 Factory Trailer Hitch on a 2001 Ford Escape
    There are two possible reasons why some 1-1/4 inch ball mounts might not fit in the factory trailer hitch on your 2001 Ford Escape. First, if the factory trailer hitch is what is considered a Class I trailer hitch, a Class II, 1-1/4 inch ball mount will not fit. They are designed this way for safety. Check the capacity of your factory trailer hitch. If it is 200 pounds tongue weight capacity and 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight, you have a Class I hitch and will need a Class I ball mount....

  • 1-1/4-Inch Ball Mount with 4-Inches of Drop
    Some lighter-duty ball mounts such as the Class I Draw-Tite # 3594 cannot be used in the drop position because there would not be enough room for the coupler to get around the hitch ball. The short part of the shank would prevent this. For a 1-1/4-inch ball mount with about 4-inches of drop you can use Class II ball mount # 36078 or Class I ball mount # 3593 with 2-3/4-inches of drop, or # C45022 with 3-1/4-inches of drop.

  • Best Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Cadillac ATS
    The Curt Hitch part # C11311 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Cadillac ATS so it would be a great option for you. For a ball mount you would want part # C45022, for a 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19256, for a 2 inch hitch ball # 19258.

  • Class I Ball Mount and Hitch Ball Dimensions
    To choose a Class I ball mount, each of which are going to fit in a 1-1/4 inch receiver, you will need to know the drop or rise you need by measuring from the ground to the top of your receiver and again from the ground to the bottom of your coupler. If your hitch is higher you would want a ball mount with drop; if your coupler is higher, you would need rise. For example, if your hitch was 3" higher then the Curt Class I # C45022 would be a great choice. You would also need a pin and...

  • Is there a 1-1/4 Inch Ball Mount with 4 to 5 Inches of Drop
    Ball mount # 36078 has a drop of 4-3/4 inches. This ball mount is designed for Class II hitches with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. If you have a Class I hitch this ball mount may not fit depending on the brand of the hitch. For a Class I hitch we have several ball mounts that offer a 3-1/4 inch drop: # C45022, # C45026, and # C45027. Also keep in mind that the tongue weight of the trailer will pull down on the back of the vehicle some so that can help in keeping the trailer level.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring Harness for 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX
    The Curt # C11497 Class I hitch you looked at would be a great choice for your 2004 Impreza WRX. It has the same weight ratings as the Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch and would install in the same manner. Don't let the reasonable price fool you, Curt makes a great product so you wouldn't sacrifice anything by going with the least expensive option. If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll also need the following items: Trailer wiring harness, part # 119147KIT Ball mount, part # C45022 1-7/8...

  • Hitch Availability for the 2014 BMW 328i GT
    Yes; you were on the right track with the product you were looking at. The Curt # C11367 is a confirmed fit for your 2014 BMW 328i GT and will provide you with a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver to allow you to carry hitch mounted accessories or tow a small utility trailer. One of the great features of a hitch like this is the concealed cross tube, which not only looks a lot cleaner on the back of your vehicle, but it provides a little more ground clearance than visible cross tube hitches.

  • Curt Ball Mount and Hitch Receiver Lock
    Yes, I can confirm that all of those parts do fit together. The Coupler Pin - 5/16" x 2-1/2" item # 37201051 will be loose inside that ball mount though. You will get quite a bit of play. The hole in the Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2-5/16" Ball - 2" Rise or 4" Drop - 7,500 lbs item # C45042 accepts a 5/8" pin. I recommend purchasing a Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - 2" Hitches - Chrome item # C72KR. This will secure your ball mount inside your hitches receiver and keep it from being...

  • Recommended Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2000 Subaru Impreza Sport
    You're halfway there, because the Curt # C11497 you were looking at is a confirmed fit on your 2000 Subaru Impreza. This hitch has a 1-1/4" receiver and will install on your vehicle without any drilling required. For wiring, I recommend using the Tekonsha # 119147KIT since the Tekonsha converters are a bit more reliable compared to the other ones available. I also like that this kit comes with a circuit tester for added convenience since this harness does require hard wiring into your vehicle....

    Yes, the Curt trailer hitch # C11308 fits the Sport Wagon model of the 2004 Mazda 6. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier) per their...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon
    The Class I trailer hitch I suggest for your 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon that is NOT the STi version is Curt # C11497. It delivers the same rated capacity as the similar Draw-Tite # 24710. One important difference between the two hitches is that Curt's warranty policy requires you to use a support strap # 18050 for any non-trailer load, such as a Class I bike rack like the Curt # C18085. The Draw-Tite hitch does NOT have this requirement and neither hitch needs the strap to tow a wheeled...

  • Will Curt Class I Hitch C11427 Work For Pulling Motorcycle Trailer With 2006 Toyota Avalon
    As long as the motorcycle trailer doesn't weigh more than 2000 lbs fully loaded and have a tongue weight greater than 200 lbs, the Curt Class I hitch, part # C11427 would work just fine for a motorcycle trailer. In order to complete your towing setup, you'll need a trailer wiring harness like # 119178KIT, a ball mount like part # C45022 and a # PC2 hitch pin and a 1-7/8 hitch ball like # A-80 or a 2 inch ball like # A-82
