Comfort, Control, Confidence with Rebellion™ XD Cushion Hitch


The Rebellion™ XD adjustable cushion hitch ball mount #45949 is proven to reduce jerking, jarring and road noise at the coupling point, making it an investment for the long haul. With ShockDrop™ technology, its integrated, dynamic, cushioned isolator absorbs bumps, potholes and rattling to help provide a more comfortable towing experience and better control over your vehicle and trailer.

Unlike other shock-absorbing hitch options, Rebellion™ XD is simple and virtually maintenance-free. It’s also highly tested for thousands of cycles to ensure dependable longevity. It has no airbags or bearings to service – an integrated grease zerk fitting allows for continuous lubrication.

Rebellion™ XD improves the comfort of your ride, enhances your control over the towing setup and ultimately promotes confidence for the road ahead. The cushioned isolator helps increase control during events of sudden braking and reduces the effects of jerking and jarring on your vehicle’s suspension and braking systems – something a traditional metal-on-metal connection cannot do.

Auto-Locking Pintle Hitches | SecureLatch™ Series


CURT SecureLatch™ pintle hitches are unlike any other pintle hitches available because of their auto-locking mechanism. To couple your trailer, just Strike. Drop. Auto-lock!

Each SecureLatch™ pintle hook and ball and pintle combo is equipped with an auto-locking lever that automatically engages as you drop the lunette ring into place. To connect your trailer, simply back up, drop the lunette ring down and the auto-locking lever activates without manual coupling required. Just insert the secondary safety pin.

SecureLatch™ pintle hitch products also have a number of other innovative features, including slotted adjustment holes on the pintle plates for one-wrench height adjustment and leveling. SecureLatch™ also features an integrated back plate, a cupped hook shape for reduced rattle while towing, a built-in locking pin for lunette ring security and safety chain hangers to prevent dragging.

The SecureLatch™ pintle hitch series includes receiver-mount options and pintle plate-mounted options of pintle hooks and ball and pintle combinations. There are also 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
