Review of Curt Ball Mounts C45028


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C45028. This is the Curt Drawbar for 1 1/4" Hitches. This ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. It's going to have the shank right here, it's a nice solid shank. This is going to slide into the receiver tube of your hitch on your vehicle. Then your ball platform is going to provide a good mounting point for your hitch ball.

Hitch balls are going to be sold separately. You can use this in either the drop or rise position, so both are available to help ensure a more level tow. It's made from a sturdy steel construction. It's going to have a corrosion-resistant, high-gloss black powder coat finish. Now to secure this inside of your hitch, you are going to need a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. The diameter of this hole's going to measure a 1/2".

Those are going to be sold separately, you can refer to our website. We offer a lot of different options when it comes to a pin and clip or a pin and lock for 1/2" diameter pin holes. Curt's going to make this in the USA. Again, it is designed for 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" trailer hitch receivers. This is class 1 and class 2 compatible. It's going to offer a gross towing weight of 2,000 pounds.

With a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. A few measurements to go over with you real quick. If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole, that measurement is going to measure right at 5 9/16". Now, again, this can be installed in either the drop or the rise position. This would be your drop position, if we measure from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform, it's going to give us a drop of 6". Then if we take a measurement of the rise, measuring from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform, that's going to give us a rise of 5 3/8".

Now, the ball hole diameter on this particular mount is going to measure 3/4 of an inch. Keep that measurement in mind when choosing the hitch ball, you want to make sure the shank of the hitch ball matches the ball hole diameter of the mount that you want to install it on. Curt's also going to cover this with a limited lifetime warranty. Again, you're going to have the solid shank, 1/2" diameter pin hole and the drop 6", rise is at 5 3/8. That's going to do it for our review of part number C45028. This is the Curt Drawbar for 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" Trailer Hitch Receivers. .
