Quality Design | Tested. Proven. Safe | CURT MFG


CURT’s engineering and testing facility is located near Detroit and to some of the world’s largest automakers, including GM and Ford. This gives the CURT engineering team access to the newest vehicles, before they are available to the public, to make designing premium-quality, custom-fit towing products possible.

With all new hitch applications, the vehicle is brought in and assessed to identify the best location for the hitch to be mounted. CURT’s goal when designing a hitch is to provide a well-secured, concealed, minimally invasive design that is also easy to install.

While the vehicle is at the facility, CURT’s engineering team also analyzes the vehicle for required towing electrical. All electrical wiring components are identified, designed and tailored to the specific vehicle.

Complete with a prototype shop and full testing and validation equipment, the CURT engineering facility can take a product from concept to validated product ready for manufacturing.

Detroit Tested | Tested. Proven. Safe | CURT MFG


CURT’s engineering and testing facility, located just outside of Detroit, MI plays a large role in the production of the highest-quality towing products on the market today.

From conventional trailer hitches to 5th wheel hitches to ball mounts, each product is tested in-house. Our Wixom testing facility gives us the opportunity to test each and every product to the most stringent standards. CURT performs a variety of tests, including fatigue, weight carrying and weight distribution. We also have capabilities to do real-time, on-vehicle, three-axis testing, similar to the European CARLOS.TC test. Every hitch that goes through CURT’s testing facility passes SAE J684, J2638, or J647 protocols.

State-of-the-art testing abilities ensures we provide a superior, well-designed product that works right the first time. This concept extends beyond trailer hitches. CURT uses industry-leading equipment to design, refine, and develop its electrical products using thermal test chambers, insulation testers, and load-pull testing for terminals and connectors.

These processes ensure product safety and reliability above and beyond what typical after-market products go through.

For everything from passenger cars and vans to full-size pickups and SUVs, CURT is 'The First Name in Towing Products.'
