Ball Mounts


Ball mounts are a key product in the towing industry and a core item within the CURT product line. We have invested in the technology necessary to produce a full line of exceptionally strong and attractive ball mounts, ensuring that they are a step above the rest. The vast majority of CURT ball mounts are CNC-formed and robotically welded for the utmost accuracy and cleanest weld lines possible. After construction, our ball mounts undergo a mechanical descaling process that creates a flawless surface for the application of our highly durable Aquence coating and powder coat finish. These two coats cure together to form a protective surface that is superior in rust, chip and UV protection.

At CURT, we understand that there are countless lifestyles in the world of towing. Each person has a slightly different set of interests and needs. That is why CURT offers a wide variety of ball mount options, not just in size and capacity but also in shape, function and capability. One of our most exciting ball mount products is our exclusive Euro Mount ball mount. This sleek fixed-ball design is fast and easy to install, requiring no tools or torque specifications. Each Euro Mount is designed to replace a common, old-style ball mount, making trailer ball installation unnecessary. CURT also carries a number of other ball mount designs, each with its own set of advantages and uses.

In addition to considering weight capacity, it is important to determine the amount of drop or rise your trailer requires when choosing the correct ball mount for your towing setup. Drop or rise is the amount of height difference between the trailer and your tow vehicle, whether that difference is positive (rise) or negative (drop). The diagram below offers a quick explanation for how to determine your needed drop or rise. Take the distance from the ground to the top of the inside of your receiver tube opening (A), and subtract it from the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler (B). B minus A equals C, the drop or rise.


How to determine needed ball mount drop or rise diagram
 

With weight capacity in mind and the amount of drop or rise determined, the only thing left to do is choose a trailer ball. Many of our ball mount options come with a trailer ball already attached (such as our Euro Mounts, Loaded Ball Mounts and Fusion Ball Mounts), but some will require you to purchase the correct trailer ball to complement your ball mount and meet your towing needs. CURT offers countless trailer ball options, all of which can be viewed on our trailer ball page. Just remember, when selecting a trailer ball, to choose one with a shank that will fit your ball mount. If a trailer ball shank is too small, we also carry a number of reducer bushings that can accommodate smaller trailer balls.

Whether you call it a ball mount, drawbar, hitch bar or stinger, you should expect it to get the job done. You do not have to settle for “good enough” or make compromises on the things you love to do. CURT’s full line of ball mounts is intended to meet you on your terms: in the field, on the water or simply out on the open road.
