Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 Honda Fit - Draw-Tite

Today, on our 2009 Honda Fit, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Draw-Tite Custom Fit Class II Note, this is a Class I hitch, not Class II 00:00:07 trailer hitch receiver. Its part number is 24826. Okay, this is what our hitch looks like installed. You'll see our cross tube meets here in the middle at our 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. This is a Class I rated hitch, so this hitch is going to work out well for us when it comes to your smaller cargo carriers, small bike carriers, or even the light-duty trailers. To secure all of our items in place, we're going to use the 1/2" diameter pinhole here on the side. You want to be sure you use Class I rated accessories, but no matter which one you would pick, whether it would be an anti-rattle bolt, maybe a locking hitch pin, or a regular hitch pin and clip, should be plenty of room to make that work. You can see our safety-chain connection points here, kind of a rounded steel-stock material.

The way this kit is set up, it isolates the signal coming from the RV going back to your taillights from the rest of your electrical system on the fit. That way it ensures that your electrical system on the vehicle does not get damaged by a back feed. This kit makes it really easy to hook up your vehicle and have lights so that you don't have to fight with putting any lights on top of your vehicle. You can just plug this in and you're ready to roll. Now, lets show you how to install it.

Here we've got the 1/2" hitch pinhole in order to secure anything that we may put into our receiver tube. We've got the flat plate-style safety chain loops with the cutout holes in them.

This places additional leverage on the receiver, which can damage the receiver as well as its attachment points to the vehicle. Have you ever slipped a length of...
