First-of-Its-Kind Cushion Hitch Ball | RockerBall™


The CURT RockerBall™ cushion hitch ball is a first-of-its-kind trailer ball, designed to retrofit onto an existing ball mount and provide more comfortable, controlled, confident towing.

RockerBall™ features our innovative ShockDrop™ technology. Using an integrated cushioned isolator, it dynamically reacts to jerking and jarring from the trailer at the coupling point. Instead of transferring every bump and variation in the road directly into your vehicle, RockerBall™ helps stop the rattling, vibrations, strain and noise.

Best of all, RockerBall™ is simple and virtually maintenance-free. It has a built-in grease zerk fitting for continuous lubrication and is highly tested for longevity. No airbags or bearings to service!

The RockerBall™ cushion hitch trailer ball fits onto most class 3 ball mounts and ball mounts with a 2-1/2” wide tongue. The ball is available in multiple capacities and standard ball diameters to perfectly fit your towing setup.

BetterWeigh™ Mobile Towing Scale | Smartphone-Ready


This video is about the BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale – a Bluetooth-enabled, smartphone-compatible device that plugs into any OBD-II port and weighs the vehicle, trailer, cargo, tongue weight, pin weight, weight distribution and trailer brake gain.

Equipped with TowSense™ technology, BetterWeigh™ provides real-time, live measurements to take the guesswork out of towing and hauling. With it, you can know exactly how much weight you’re towing, and whether it’s safe to tow with your vehicle.

BetterWeigh™ also makes brake controller setup fast, easy and accurate by calculating the exact trailer brake gain needed for your particular load size.

The CURT BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale is compatible with Apple iOS and Android OS. The downloadable app is intuitive, easy to use and completely free.

SecureLatch™ Auto-Locking Pintle Hitch | Innovative Features & Benefits


The SecureLatch™ pintle hitch series is engineered to streamline the trailer hookup process, featuring an auto-locking design. Each ball and pintle combination and pintle hook comes with an auto-locking mechanism to couple the trailer latch without manual coupling required.

Just Strike. Drop. Auto-lock!

As you back up to the lunette ring, the built-in striker plate helps center and align the towing connection. Then, lower the lunette ring down onto the pintle hitch. The auto-locking lever will automatically engage the primary coupling latch. Simply insert the secondary safety pin, and you’re ready to tow!

SecureLatch™ pintle hitch products are available in a receiver-mount or adjustable pintle mount style. We offer pintle hooks, ball and pintle combinations, pintle mounts and adjustable lunette rings.

Additional SecureLatch™ features:

  • Cupped hook tightly holds lunette ring fore and aft to reduce chucking and noise
  • Slotted pintle mount bolt plate provides max adjustability, instead of fixed height positions
  • Quick, easy, one-tool height adjustments on pintle mounts – no disassembly required
  • Lunette ring features offset base mount for maximum vertical adjustment
  • Drop-in lunette ring pin accepts lock to deter theft and turns 90 degrees while coupled
  • Integrated, intermediate safety chain hangers keep chains off the ground
  • Textured, dark grey teridium finish for a premium look on your vehicle

Compared to other cushion hitch solutions, ShockDrop™ is lighter-weight, putting less stress on your receiver hitch.

For maximum confidence, ShockDrop™ technology is engineered for simplicity. Each product is designed to be virtually maintenance-free. The cushion isolator is thoroughly tested for thousands of cycles, and it won’t wear out like competitive solutions that use an airbag or bearings.
