This fully welded, corrosion-resistant Honda Civic trailer hitch receiver is perfect for your light-duty towing needs. Draw-Tite's Tested Tough guarantee ensures that this hitch exceeds industry standards. Drawbar sold separately.
Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.
Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.
In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.
At etrailer.com we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

Today on this 94 Honda Civic, were gonna install part number 24677 from Draw-Tite. This will also apply to part number 60834 from Hidden Hitch. Alright, this is what the hitch looks like when its installed in the car. Next well give you some measurements thatll help you out in selecting your accessories. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground is going to be 11 3/8, from the center of the hitch pinhole to the outside edge of the bumper is going to be 2 inches. Now well go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.
Well go ahead and show you how the hitch mounts up to the frame. Well use this existing hole here, the same place over at the passenger side and well also use the tie-down loop here. Well take a u-bolt, put it into the tie-down loop and then well go ahead and raise our hitch in position. Between the hitch and the loop well get a spacer block as well and at the bottom well get lock washers and lock nuts. When we install our hardware, youll notice that the bolts kinda long, it barely touches right here and we cant get the bolt through.
So what we did, well just pry the frame just a little bit, just enough to give us room. With the driver side down, well repeat the same process on the passenger side. Next, well go ahead and put a u-bolt into the tie-down loop then we can start and put the hitch in position. Lets start out on the driver side. Well just use this u-shaped block between the hitch and the frame.
Well eventually get this finger tight and check to make sure that our hitch is leveled. If we had to make adjustments, we can add an additional spacer here. When you get the second side up, you gotta get hook the hitch towards the back and then up. Once you got all the hardware installed and snug up, check to make sure that the hitch in level or pointing up just a little bit. When you need to make one more adjustment, you can actually lower the hitch and put a spacer block between the hitch and a tie-down loop.
Okay, well go ahead and tighten up the bolts just a little bit to take up the slack and just see how it looks. If were satisfied with it, we can go ahead and install the remaining hardware. In this case, well use it without spacers that came out level. With all our hardware installed, well go ahead and tighten down the bolts then torque them down as specified in the instructions. With everything torqued down, thatll finish it for part number 24677 from Draw-Tite.

Thank you very much for the speedy service. Attached is a photo of the hitch on a 1994 Honda Civic. Unfortunately the bumper itself is warped so there is a wider gap on one side. Thank you. 93357

I purchased this so that I could tow a lightweight sailboat behind my '94 Civic coupe. After finalizing my order, I realized I had made a mistake. I called the customer service line and quickly reached a real person who resolved the issue within minutes. Customer service is excellent. Shipping was on time and hassle-free. Installation was straightfoward. Because the car has very low ground clearance, I recommend installing with the car on a lift or otherwise elevated so you will have room to work (and so you can see your torque wrench reading), but I managed to do without. The optional spacers are a nice inclusion to make sure it fits perfectly. The hitch itself is sturdy and uncomplicated, as a hitch should be. The bottom crossbar is visible when installed, but it blends into the pavement just fine. Ground clearance seems to be unaffected. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase. 85731

I bought two hitches, one for my 98 Civic and another for my 2000 Civic. My Thule Helium Aero bike carrier fits well both. Installation was very easy, although I hand to bend a little the rails around the holes to make room for the screws. BTW, the rails' steel is quite soft, I did use just a stubby screwdriver to bend it; don't use the chisel/hammer method as per the video! BTW, the etrailer.com's customer support is very, very good. When installing the second hitch, I stripped one of the threads. It took just an email describing the issue to have a replacement part sent to me - at no charge. Overall, very happy with both the hitches and etraler.com's CS. 158643

Installation was longer than anticipated, but it was not the manufacturer's fault. At some point in the last 18 years, my civic got popped in the left rear quarter. The mounting hole in the frame on that side needed some persuading and the bolt wouldn't fit inside the frame without pulling the rear bumper. No biggie, still got it on in under 2 hours. Hitch looks good and performs as expected! Also it got to me (Memphis, TN) the next day and I didn't pay a penny for shipping! Also paid less than Amazon wanted. Great job, e-trailer! 158998
Easy to install, looks good. Thanks to etrailer.com for an awesome buying experience! I was notified each step of the way and got a confirmation email when they saw UPS had delivered the product. I have already referred friends and will refer many more. Great videos on the website for the wiring too. I lost my instruction sheet and in about 2 minutes of looking I was watching the video showing me how to get everyting hooked up. I am a very happy customer. 19645
I ordered a trailer hitch for my Honda civic. The order was followed by a few emails one letting me know that my order had been placed. One giving me the delivery details of my hitch. It came on time and was easilyinstalled just as they said it would be. The one down fall was the bolt was a tad bit longer than it should have been. But I just used a cats paw to lever it in. Y 30603

This is a great product, very pleased with the quality. Bolted right up with no modification to the holes in the frame rails on my 1998 Honda Civic 2dr DX. Comes with all the hardware that you will need. It also has instructions that's easy to follow and complete in detail. I basicly got this trailer hitch for our bike rack. Loving it so far. 37171

It was interesting putting a trailer hitch on a 2000 Honda Civic LX, but it was cheaper than buying a truck. I was unable to install the small metal plate that came with the attachment hardware because of the tight clearances. Other than that it was very easy to install. 29437
Great product, Super easy installation. It took a total of 20 minutes for me to install from opening the box to putting away all the tools at then end of the job. I was a bit hesitant about installing my own hitch and there is no reason to be. It was super simple. 27306

The video showing how to install the trailer hitch was very helpful. I was able to install the hitch quickly and easily. I also bought a bike rack at the same time, which mounted easily into the trailer hitch. I am very happy with the whole process. 34511

Pulled a small 4x8 enclosed uhaul trailer with my 00 honda civic si about 600 miles. It's worked good, but the little motor did not like hills much. Hitch is good quality and easy to install. 180094

Good value. This was much harder to install than anticipated. There is very little space on the frame to install this prodict on a Honda Civic. 772
