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 with ball mount 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 and ball mount combination is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Chevrolet Cobalt SS, Chevrolet HHR, Pontiac G5 sedan, coupe or GT, Pontiac Pursuit GT (Canada) coupe or sedan or Saturn Ion Standard or Red Line (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. This class 1 hitch kit also comes with an old-style 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" ball mount to be a complete towing package.
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.

Just installed one of these on my 2006 Cobalt SS. Instructions were clear, and make perfect sense when you're looking at the car. Hardware was of high quality, and installation was straight forward. The only part of any difficulty is holding a 50 lb item up with one hand while getting the nuts onto the bolts, but I just placed a box under the one side and it was fine. The fitment was perfect, and the receiver is just enough under the car that it doesn't catch your eye. FAR better than some of the "one size fits all" kits that the trailer rental wanted to install at almost twice the cost. The only tools I needed were: drill 3/4 wrench 5/8 wrench flat pry bar 1/2 unibit for making the holes in the unibody. The only things I noticed were that on the revised instructions on this site, it says 110ft/lbs for the nuts, and on the included instructions, it says 75. Also, even though the nuts are lock nuts, I would suggest driving the car a bit after install then checking for tightness BEFORE towing anything. Great Product
