When a customer buys a hitch from CURT, it’s a promise that the hitch is going to perform as expected according to its rated use. That is why each product goes through rigorous strength and durability tests to make sure that the promise is kept.
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.'
