Curt Manufacturing is recalling 13,474 Forged Ball and Pintle Hitches part numbers 48190 and 48200.
The pivot hole is out of position, which can limit the locking jaw engagement.
Limited locking engagement may allow the upper jaw to unlatch and a towed vehicle to separate, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Curt Manufacturing will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ball and pintle hitch free of charge.
Owners may contact Curt Manufacturing customer service at (800) 798-0813.
