Today we are going to install part number 24826 from Draw-Tite, and we are going to install this on a 2009 Honda Fit. The hitch gets installed using this hole in the frame and this hole in the frame right here. And also what is going to happen is we are going to have to trim this plastic piece off so the hitch will fit flush against the frame of the vehicle. OK, it is going to be the same thing on this side however, the hitch is going to wrap around the exhaust and use the same existing holes that are in the frame as was on the drivers side. Optionally, you can disconnect the exhaust and move it out of the way so it will be a little easier to get ahold of the hardware going into the vehicle. And that is what we are going to do here. So we will disconnect the two rubber hangers here, and hopefully that will give us enough wiggle room to push it off to the side. We actually put a safety strap on - we actually use a strap to hold it out of the way because there is plenty of room actually to move around now.





Honda Fit Trailer Hitch Questions and Answers


  • 2015 Honda Fit Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation
  • I can assure you that all three of the hitches recommended for your 2015 Honda Fit do actually fit. This includes the Curt Hitch part # C11406, the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24920, and the Hidden Hitch part # 60353. All three of the hitches will install basically the same. In fact, the Draw Tite and the Hidden Hitch do install the exact same as they are basically the same hitch. The Curt hitch uses a very similar installation method but doesn't use all of the same holes in the frame as...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Honda Fit Sport for Carrying a Bike Rack
  • Since you plan on carrying a bike rack on your 2009 Honda Fit I would recommend you get the Draw-Tite Hitch, part # 24826. This hitch is very similar to the Draw-Tite hitch, # 60218, that you referenced but it does not include a draw bar and pin and clip so it is priced a little lower. If you only plan on carrying a bike rack I would recommend the # 24826, but if you plan on someday towing a trailer I would recommend you get the # 60218.

  • Trunk Mounted 2 Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Honda Fit
  • There are actually several options for carrying bikes on the 2011 Honda Fit. I recently helped someone choose a bike rack for the same vehicle. One option is to use a trunk mounted bike rack. According to Thule, there are several trunk mount bike rack options that will fit the 2011 Honda Fit. The two bike racks from Thule that will fit include the following: Raceway 2, # TH9001PRO Passage 2, # TH910XT If you ever plan on doing any sort of towing, then installing a trailer hitch,...

  • Heat from Exhaust is Melting Items On Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier on a 2010 Honda Fit
  • It sounds like the carrier that you have has a straight shank on it. If it does then you need one that has a rise to fit the carrier deck higher than the exhaust tip on your 2010 Honda Fit. Carrier # 6500, has a rise in the shank that raises the deck 3 inches above the top of the receiver opening. If the carrier does have a rise in the shank, then an exhaust tip would angle the exhaust downward. We have different size tips, I would need to know the diameter of your current exhaust tip...

  • Which Trailer Hitch Mounted Bike Carrier Works for a 2008 Honda Fit Sport
  • We have several bike racks that will work with your vehicle and this hitch. You need to remember the tongue weight capacity of the hitch is 200 pounds, so you do not want to exceed that or the recommended tongue weight of the vehicle (whichever is lower). Your vehicles recommended tongue weight capacity is in the owner manual or inside the drivers door jamb. Tongue weight includes the rack, bikes and any weight loaded behind the rear axle of the vehicle. I have posted links to several...

  • Vehicle Warranty Restrictions For Towing A Small Trailer With A 2009 Honda Fit
  • The Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch # 24826 hitch is rated to tow up to 2000 pounds, but this does not necessarily mean your 2009 Honda Fit is capable of towing this much. If it does not list a towing capacity in your owners manual then there is usually a reason why they do not. Installing an aftermarket hitch does sometimes void vehicle warranties, but this would be something you would need to discuss with your Honda dealer. The hitch manufactures produce hitches for the Honda...

  • Hitch model comparison for 2009 Honda Fit - 24826 vs 60218
  • Great question! These hitches are almost identical, but what separates them is that one (60218)comes with the recommended drawbar, pin and clip. Both are well engineered, rated for 2,000 lbs gross towing weight, have limited lifetime warranties and black powder coated finish for great corrosion resistance.

  • Trailer hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2008 Honda Fit Sport
  • For your 2008 Honda Fit Sport I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24776. This, and all hitches for the Fit, is a Class I hitch. This means that the bike carrier used must be rated for use with a Class I hitch and you are limited to carrying 2 bikes maximum. For a compatible bike carrier I recommend the Swagman Trailhead, # S63360. It is Class I compatible, can tilt, has anti-sway cradles, and a rise in the shank for greater ground clearance. I have linked a video review of this carrier...

I have linked you to the install instructions as well as an install video that you might find helpful.

  • Either The Curt Trailer Hitch, # 11058, or the Draw-Tite Hitch, # 24776, will fit your 2007 Honda Fit. If you will just be using the hitch for a bicycle rack, I would recommend the Draw-Tite # 24776 as it does not include a drawbar, pin and clip, which you would not need. You will be limited to a bike rack that is compatible with Class I hitches. I would recommend the Rola TX-102 2 Bike Carrier, part # 59400.

  • The Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24826, is a Class I hitch for the 2010 Honda Fit. It will not accept any hitch accessories that have to be installed in a Class II or Class III hitch. A Class I hitch will have a stopper inside the receiver to prevent the hitch pin hole from lining up if used with a Class II or Class III hitch accessory. This keeps you from overloading the Class I hitch. You will want to check that the Saris Thelma 2 bike carrier will work in a Class I 1-1/4...

You will want to pull out the plastic push tab that is connected to the vehicle frame and then trim the plastic trim tab to where is sits flush against the frame rail. The hitch will mount directly against the plastic tab, but make sure the hitch sits flat against the frame rail and that the plastic trim is not between the frame rail and the hitch. The...

  • Best Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Honda Fit for Bike Rack
  • Curt recommends the stabilizer strap with non-supported loads like bike racks to help support the hitch when going over bumps to prevent some of the vertical shock from being transferred to the hitch. Curt does this as a precaution, it's not that Draw Tite or Hidden Hitch are stronger. Both hitch brands make outstanding hitches that are typically stronger than what they are rated for. I would say that Curt just happens to approach the idea of a bike rack/cargo carrier being used in a...

  • The Brophy Hitch Adapter, # HTAD, will allow you to use your 2 inch bike rack with a 1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver, however, using any hitch adapter will decrease the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by half. This means you will only be able to carry 100lbs on the hitch, including the weight of the bike rack and the bikes you are carrying. Another factor that must be considered is that Class I trailer hitches can only support up to 2 bikes at a time. The reason that only...

Anything attached to the trailer hitch, in this case a bike rack and bikes, will count against that tongue weight capacity. The use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity by 50 percent, bringing it down to 100 pounds. The weight of the bike rack and bikes would have to be less than 100...

The WeatherTech BumpStep Hitch-Mounted Bumper Protector and Step, # WT81BS1, is designed for use with the 2" hitch so this step will not work with the hitch receivers available for your Honda Fit.

  • Trailer hitches are vehicle specific and Curt hitch # 13534 is designed to fit a 2008 to 2013 Toyota Highlander. It will not fit a 2013 Honda Fit. Trailer hitches for the Honda Fit are much smaller because the vehicle is not as capable as a larger SUV or truck. That is why they only make Class I trailer hitches for it. I have included a link to the trailer hitches that will fit your vehicle. If you are looking for a hitch to carry something like a bike rack then I recommend Draw-Tite...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver to Accommodate a Hitch Bike Rack for a 2015 Honda Fit
  • I have a couple recommendations for your setup! First off, the trailer hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite 1-1/4 inch hitch # 24920 because it's currently the most popular hitch for your 2015 Honda Fit. It will have a 200 pound tongue weight capacity. The 2015 Honda Fit will work with only Class-I accessories such as bike racks, cargo carries, ball mounts and tube covers. Please note that only Class-I with 1-1/4 inch receivers are available for the 2015 Honda Fit. Keep in mind that...

  • Will Installing the Hidden Hitch Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2008 Honda Fit Void the Vehicle Warranty
  • Installing the Hidden Hitch Class I trailer hitch, # 60847, on your 2008 Honda Fit should not void the vehicle warranty, as long as it is not determined that the hitch itself caused the issue you are taking the vehicle in for service for. Your warranty is protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act, which states in part that unless the modification to your vehicle caused the problem your warranty must be honored. This being said you will need to use common sense precautions...

  • Trailer Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a Class I Hitch on a 2011 Honda Fit
  • The Draw-Tite trailer hitch, # 24826, is a Class I trailer hitch. What this means is that it can only accept certain bike racks. The most it can handle is 2 bikes. A Class II accessory, even though it has a 1-1/4 inch shank, will not fit in a Class I receiver. The shank is too long. The bike rack you are describing sounds like it may be for 2 inch receivers, or at least a Class II, 1-1/4 inch receiver, but not a Class I. It also sounds like you are talking about a platform style bike...

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes on 2010 Honda Fit Being Flat Towed with Motorhome
  • The Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 24826, that you mentioned is a great choice. This hitch was custom designed for the 2010 Honda Fit and offers bolt-on installation, no drilling or welding required.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Honda Pilot for a Bike Rack
  • For your 2015 Honda Fit there are only 1-1/4 inch hitches like the Draw Tite # 24920 available. 2 inch hitches are usually only seen on larger vehicles like SUVs and trucks. This hitch has a 200 lb tongue weight capacity, so as long as your bike rack is compatible with Class I hitches you should be good with the Draw Tite. You may need to upgrade your bike rack though. The Swagman XTC2, part # S64670 is one of the most popular racks because it's so easy to use, and because the rack...

  • Availability of Hitch Cargo Carrier to Fit on a Honda Fit Being Towed Behind a RV
  • There is not a difference between the 2009 to 2013 Honda Fit as far as the size of hitch that will fit and the maximum amount of weight it can carry. The Honda Fit will use a Class I 1-1/4 inch hitch with a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs.

  • Do I need an Adapter with Rise for a Platform-Style Bike Rack on Honda Fit with DrawTite Hitch
  • I have a similar rack to the one you referenced that is a fit for your 2013 Honda Fit and your Class I Draw-Tite Sportframe hitch and will not require a hitch adapter. I recommend the Thule T2 Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier with Integrated Cable Lock for 1-1/4 inch Hitches # TH917XTR. This rack tilts down for easy rear-of-vehicle access. A few measurements: The rack measures 18 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest bike-carrier rail. It measures 3-1/2 inches...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2008 Honda Fit Sport to Use a Bike Carrier with 2 Inch Shank
  • All of the trailer hitches for the 2008 Honda Fit are Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers. This is a reflection of the ability of the vehicle; it isn't designed to tow or carry heavy loads so higher Class hitches are not made for it. The only way to carry the bike rack would be to use a trailer hitch # 24776 and an adapter, # HTAD. The adapter will convert the 1-1/4 inch receiver to a 2 inch. However, using an adapter reduces the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent....

  • Is a Draw Bar Required for Carrying a Bike Rack on a 2008 Honda Fit with a Draw Tite Hitch # 24776
  • No, if you are just planning on using the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24776 to install a bike rack all you need is the hitch. Whatever bike rack you purchase will come with its own pin and clip, and a drawbar would only be used for towing a trailer. The most popular bike rack with other Honda Fit owners is the Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 bike rack. This is a highly rated bike rack with many great features. Check out the review video I attached that shows this rack being used on a similar Fit as yours.

  • How to Determine Ground Clearance on a 2015 Honda Fit with Draw-Tite Hitch Before Installation
  • On Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24920 and all of the hitches for the 2015 Honda Fit the receiver will be directly below the rear fascia. So if you measure from the bottom most part of the fascia down to the ground and subtract 1-3/4 inches that will be the approximate ground clearance measurement once the hitch is installed. On smaller vehicles that are low to the ground to start with, adding a trailer hitch usually reduces ground clearance so you have to keep that in mind when choosing...

  • Recommended Hitch and Bike Rack for 2013 Honda Fit
  • If you're only planning on using the hitch as a mounting point for a bike rack or other hitch mounted accessory, I'd recommend going with the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24826. The only difference between this hitch and the Hidden Hitch # 60218 is that the Hidden Hitch includes a ballmount that you won't need unless you plan on doing some towing in the future. Either hitch would work great, I just wouldn't want you to pay for something you don't need. You didn't mention which bike...
