Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (1857 Customer Reviews)

Corrosion-resistant ball mount is 9-9/16" long and fits 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers. Ball mount can be used in the rise position only.


Were the shank a half inch longer and the pin hole moved to match, this would have fit my car perfectly. As it was, I needed to cut my bumper to install it.

I drilled it out for a 1 post and repeatedly hauled far more than the 2000lbs my car is rated for, even at highway speeds in through city traffic. I dont see this failing anytime soon.
Brian M - 10/05/2021


Here is a photo of my boat with my car.


Shipped in quicker than I thought it would. It fit it my old Hidden Hitch Class I receiver perfectly. I drive a '97 Geo Prizm, and the 5 inch rise is a definite plus in keeping my 5 x 8 utility trailer nice and level when I'm hauling lawn equipment. The only drawback is that the Curt drawbar does not come with the pin.


Worked perfectly with the Curt towing hitch for my 2016 Scion tC (stock height).


I'm using this to tow a jet ski behind a Hyundai Veloster, works great. This is the tallest one I could find in order to keep the trailer level to the ground.


Second time ordering and both times product is exactly as described and good price. The problem is with the shipping. Paid for 2-3 day shipping. Was notified the same day that I placed the order that they verified the order and that it was in stock. It took them a week to ship it from the wearhouse. And then another 5 days to get to me.

It is definitely our busy season and I am sorry that we were not able to ship the order to you in the expected time frame.

I'm very pleased with your product and customers services, those product fit in my car like the instruction said, thank you Etrailer I recommend 100%


Very fast shipping fits my 2013 Corolla S perfect perfect height nice gap in between hitch and bumper


This is an addition to my hitch. Had to use the original part for a platform for my scooter, before I bought the trailer.


Highest quality ive seen....perfect fit I can use it on my harley and my SUV... When my wife returns from Afghanistan in May...we will travel across the S.E. USA on the Harley Trike and trailer thanks to Curt product.


Recently I ordered the Curt C45014 Curt Class II Drawbar - 5" Rise - 9-5/8" Long rated for 3,500 lbs. However, I ordered this C45024 by accident and it is rated for only 2000 pound. However, they are exactlly the same. Only thing I can tell different is that the C45014 is rated for rise only, and the sticker on the C45024 is rated for rise or drop. This is solid square bar stock and the flat bar for the ball mount is the same thickness. Since they are the same I would not be afraid to pull 3500 lbs or more with either one. Only a few dollars difference. Either one is excellent since they appear to be exact.

I have found Curt products are of the highest quality. If possible I always buy Curt products. I think Curt under rates their products and over engineer all products. Therefore, Curt products are heavy duty without failure.
Gary P - 05/17/2014


This is the perfect 1.25 hitch slider for a passenger car. You need at least 18" to the ball for a trailer (etc) to set level. Passenger cars sit lower and softer suspension. This is the only place you can find a 5" rise in a slider. E-trailer has it all including the trailer wiring adapter which fit perfect. My 2016 Chevy Impala never had is it so good...Thanks for great products.

One Year later and still perfect!

Nice hitch and easy online instructions to help with installation of hitch and wiring harness


Well-made draw bar by Curt. Other brands I shopped locally were sloppily constructed. My existing draw bar was bent in a rear-end accident earlier in the week. This is an exact replacement. folks were fast in getting this one to my door. I am a return customer and know I can always depend on!

Rich,Thank you for your review.I am sorry to hear about your accident. It is not recommended that a trailer hitch be used again if the part of the car that the hitch was installed on was involved in the accident in any way. There can be stress cracks in the welds that may not be visible, and that would compromise the stability and safety of the hitch.

Ball mount continues to serve me very well. never disappoints! Happy holidays!

It's just what I needed, gave me the height i was looking for.

Still very happy with it! Works perfect on my Fiesta ST.
Steve F - 01/06/2018


Not tested yet, but was happy to find a hitch that would help me tow my new trailer at the proper height. Didn't even know such a thing existed until I saw them on this site.

Very nice seat covers, would buy again. Appreciate how well-made they are.
Deidre - 01/19/2018


Received item as advertised in a timely manner. Will certainly do business again as needed in the future. Will certainly recommend.


I ordered the Curt hitch and ball mount for my 2011 VW Golf TDI. The product arrived sooner than advertised and the video and printed instructions were complete. As other customers have noted, the hitch is low and care should be exercised. My only suggestion would be to include Posilock T connectors as they provide a superior connection over the suggested sissor connector. Check out Posilock's website, I think that you will agree that they are a quality item in keeping with your company's well deserved reputation.


Was everything they said it would be.installing it diy was even easier than I thought it would be. now i've got to pull my poor overloaded trailer out from behind the garage and see what else I need to order next ..sigh ..anyways if I need something else I will use etrailer for my next purchase. thanks guys for making life just a little bit easier...the drawbar was my second purchase my 1st was the tow hitch for the ford fusion...


I needed a drawbar that would make my boat trailer track safely by being as level as possible. Etrailer provided me with very helpful information which led me to ordering their drawbar. It has yet to be installed with a hitch that I am buying locally. I expect all to go well.


I'm using this ball mount on my 2009 Honda Fit to tow a 2015 "Little Guy MyPod Max" tear drop camping trailer. The MyPod weighs 630 lbs and has a tongue weight of 90 lbs. Because the hitch receiver on my Honda Fit sits very low, I need the 5 inch rise to raise the ball to the recommended height of 16 inches above the ground. The horizontal length of this ball mount also helps bring the ball a more comfortable distance from the rear bumper. And, lastly, this ball mount, though rated at 2,000/200 lbs is very light weight.


I purchased a new 2016 Ford Focus and wanted a trailer hitch to carry my bicycle and also to pull a small trailer. I installed a Curt 11158, class 1 trailer hitch (perfect fit & no installation problems). The Curt C45024 drawbar was a perfect match for the car. See picture. Very happy & worth 5 stars.


I just received my Curt Class 1 C45024 ball mount and couldn't be happier. It fit the receiver on my hitch perfectly. Hefting it from the box, I had no doubt, this mount is very sturdy! Solid steel bar and a great finish. The service I received from etrailer .com was a very pleasant experience. They were more than helpful during our correspondence and shipping was very quick. Thanks to everyone at!


I've been ordering from etrailer for years off and on w/ time sensitive projects. If you want to just get it over with in a timely and reliable fashion, just use these guys and gals and don't stress over saving a buck or two w/ somebody else. They will talk to you to, like over the phone w/ a real human, if there is an issue. And there was a very minor issue. They called ME! Imagine that.

So product review for this hitch? It's heavy duty and will rip the back half of your car off before this thing breaks.


Package arrived quickly and drawbar was exactly what I expected. Well made, solid bar and no poorly placed stickers. (A hitch I bought from tractor supply needed to have the stickers sanded off because they made it nearly impossibly to slide the drawbar into the hitch). Only "good" because drawbar arrived with a few nicks and chips in the coating. Though maybe UPS dropped the box.

    In order to select the correct amount of rise or drop you would need you will need to take a couple measurements. The goal is to have your trailer sit as level as possible. The first thing you will need to do is park your tow vehicle on level ground and measure from the ground to the top of the hitch opening on your hitch.

  • Does Curt Class I Ball Mount # C45024 Have a Solid or Hallow Shank
    Class I and II 1-1/4 in hitch accessories are almost exclusively solid-shanked across the board. That would include ball mounts like # C45024. Just to be sure, I did contact Curt and they verified that ball mount # C45024 does have a solid shank. For Class I and II trailer hitches you need to use the ball mount specified by the trailer hitch manufacturer in order to not void the warranty. Or you can ask the hitch manufacturer if this ball mount is acceptable and will not void the warranty....

  • Why Don't Ball Mounts with Longer Shanks Reduce Towing Capacity
    When looking at the weight capacities on ball mounts that feature a longer shank, such as the Curt Class I Drawbar # C45024 that you recently purchased, you can comfortably follow its listed weight rating without having to reduce the capacity based on its length beyond the hitch receiver. I definitely understand your concern with this type of design, as the further out from the vehicle you get, the more leverage any tongue weight will be putting on the trailer hitch. This is definitely...

  • Drawbar Recommendation for a 2006 Chevy HHR with a Hidden Hitch # 60815
    I did a little research and found that the draw bar came with your Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver with Drawbar, part # 60815 (no longer available), is the Sportframe Drawbar 4 inch Rise, part # 3594. Since your hitch is a Class I hitch it is not recommended that you use any drawbar other than the one that the hitch manufacturer recommends otherwise you will void your warranty. The reason they are very particular about using the right rise/drop drawbar is that if you were to get rear-ended...

    The Curt bar # C45028 (5-3/8 inch rise or 6-inch drop) you referenced is one of 3 Curt drawbars we currently offer that will have a 5 inch or more rise in the shank. The reason other shanks may have a different rise is because it may have a different Class rating. I also pulled this drawbar from our warehouse and made a short video and diagram for you.

  • Hitch Ball Recommendations for a Curt Ball Mount part # C45024
    For a ball with a 1-7/8 inch diameter you would want the Hitch Ball part # C40001 and then for one with a 2 inch ball you would want the Hitch Ball # C40018. The shank of both of these balls is 3/4 of an inch in diameter and is 1-9/16 inches long for the # C40001 and 2-1/8 inches long on the # C40018.

Although the ball mount # C45014 from Curt is also a 1-1/4-inch size it is a Class II ball mount and will not work in your hitch. We do offer two Class I ball mounts with the same 5-inch rise as the part you referenced. These will work in your hitch.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 2010 Ford Fusion Towing Haul Master Trailer

This will get you to 17-1/4 inches and give you the clearance needed from your bumper as well. This will put your trailer about 2.5 inches down on the tongue.

  • Will Draw Bar 36065 fit a 2012 Nisssan Sentra
    There is a drawbar with 5" of rise that will work for you, but Draw-Tite # 36065 is for use with Class II hitches only, and is not compatible with your Class I hitch, # 24794. Instead, you could use the Curt # C45024, a Class I draw bar which also gives you 5" of rise and will have no problems clearing your bumper with a length of 9-9/16". For a hitch pin you would want # F-4, and the hitch ball you want would either be 1-7/8" ball # C40001 or 2" ball # C40018.
