CURT class 1 trailer hitches are the lightest-duty hitches of our rear mount receiver lineup. They are engineered for reliability, welded together with quality American steel and blasted clean for a smooth finish. Tested to meet the strict demands of the industry, this CURT class 1 hitch has a capacity to tow up to 2,000 lbs. of gross trailer weight and 200 lbs. of tongue weight. This means it can handle a variety of small trailers such as single-axle utility trailers, canoe and kayak trailers, dirt bike trailers and more. It can also accept a hitch-mounted cargo carrier or bike rack, making it a very useful addition to cars with limited cargo space (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component; i.e. the vehicle, hitch, trailer, etc).
Class 1 hitches feature a 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" receiver tube opening and are typically mounted on compact cars, full-size cars and some smaller crossover SUVs, minivans and compact SUVs. This particular hitch is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Chevrolet Cobalt sedan or coupe or Pontiac Pursuit (Canada) sedan or coupe (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a square tube frame and comes with a hitch pin and clip and all necessary installation hardware.
Each CURT class 1 hitch is co-cured with a liquid Bonderite coating and a high-gloss black powder coat finish that provide a lasting defense against rust, wear and harmful UV rays. Like all CURT receiver hitches, this class 1 hitch is made right here in the USA and is backed by a one-year finish warranty and a limited lifetime warranty.

Low visual impact, tough install
This was the only "compact" hitch I could find for a Chevy Cobalt coupe...all the rest spanned the frame rails. It required permanent removal of the rear air dam/shield and should have required a bit of cutting of the bottom of the bumper cover, but my installer simply folded it up a bit under the hitch, which is fine. Every other hitch I could find for this car spanned the frame rails and was more visible. However, the installer, who has a flat fee for installation, cringed when I ordered it as it has a reputation for difficult drilling through the trunk wall (2 bolts) and the bumper beam (4 bolts). Leave installation to the pros. Great little hitch, though.
