Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2011 Honda Insight - Curt

Today on this 2011 Honda Insight were going to install part number 11051 from Curt. This is what the hitch looks like once its installed on the car. Next well give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories such as a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 12 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be about four and a quarter inches. Now Ill go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.

The first thing we need to do is go ahead and lower the exhaust to get it out of the way. There will be two rubber hangers on the exhaust that well spray down with some lubricant and then go ahead and pry them off. Next well go ahead and move on to the evaporative emissions canister. Well unbolt that and allow it to hang from the hoses. Next well go ahead and remove the splash shields located on each side of the vehicle.

There will be three fasteners and two screws holding them in place. At this point well install the seven-sixteenths carriage bolt and the spacer through the access hole on the frame rails and two rear most holes on the frame. Now when we install the hardware into the frame we have to take our bolt leader and push it through the hitch hole, and then through the second hole and then well go ahead and well thread in our block, well push in the frame, then well thread in the bolt and pull it back through. Well leave our bolt leaders in place to help guide our bolts while we install our hitch. Next well go ahead and hang the U bolt through a tow loop in the middle of the vehicle.

Now we can go ahead and raise the hitch into position and secure it to the tow loop using the U bolt and two seven-sixteenths hex phalange nuts to hold it up in place. Then well install the rest of the hardware going into the frame. Well snug down the hitch and then take a look at it. If we have to we can add a spacer at the tow loop to help level out the hitch. Once were happy with the way the hitch looks well go ahead and tighten the hardware down and then torque it down as specified in the instructions.

Now we can go ahead and reinstall the exhaust and well also reinstall the emissions canister as well. Then well take the splash shields, hold them up in place and see where we need to trim out. When we do our test fit we found out that actually we didnt need to do any cutting on the passengers side, but we had to make one small notch out for the drivers side. Now we can go ahead and reinstall the splash guards. With that that will finish it for our install of part number 11051 from Curt on our 2011 Honda Insight.

Product arrived quickly after getting some special help from customer support due to my card having some issues after being abroad for several years! We were able to install the hitch fairly easily, and all parts were quality made and easy enough to figure out! YouTube helped us out as well in the process! Thanks for the great customer support and fast delivery! Our hitch was on in no time! 605734

I wanted to buy a bike rack for my husband for his birthday, but was nervous to pick something without his expertise. But etrailer.com provided an incredible amount of good information and recommendations that were even specific to my car, which helped me not only narrow down the type of rack I wanted but order the exact pieces that fit my little hybrid car perfectly. I had this hitch installed by a local mechanic for about $90, which was a great value considering the hitch itself was quite affordable. I have a 2010 Honda Insight and used this CURT hitch along with Reese 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack w/ Frame Mount Cradles for 1-1/4" Hitch. Together they still allow for the hatchback door to open even when loaded. My husband just loaded his bike onto it and headed to the mountain for the first time and he's beaming. Thanks to etrailer.com for all the great info and great products. 515763

This hitch is solid, well-built. But installing it on my Honda was much more difficult than I expected. I do a fair bit of home mechanics, but in this case...you have to pull off a lot of plastic fender protection, on both sides, drop the exhaust pipe, then pull the hitch mounting bolts through a hole in the frame tube so they drop with threads exposed back through the correct hole for mounting. They give you a special spring-like wire for doing the threading work. But this is not for beginner or impatient mechanics. 461507

Instructions and video were very helpful for someone who has never installed a hitch before. It fit perfectly, already used it to pull a small trailer. Our 2010 Honda Insight still got between 36 and 40 mph pulling the trailer. 346646


Comments

Preforming as expected! After a year and several long trips, including a 2,600 mile trip, the hitch and wiring are still work great. Without the drawbar installed you hardly notice the trailer hitch.

Excellent! My local mechanic installed the hitch on my 2011 Honda Insight. It works perfectly with my Saris bike rack. It works so well that I just purchased a hitch for our Accord. 265104

This trailer hitch fits our Honda Insight perfectly. It is a solid and well-crafted design that should work perfectly for attaching our bicycle rack. Because the rear bumper of our Insight is so low and crowded, we had a friend who's a mechanic put it on for us. He said it would have been difficult for an amateur to install. 187894

The only option for tow bar, on a Honda 2010 Insight, is the Curt Class I. It was easy to find and order. Packed with other order items and shipment arrived quickly. Looking forward to using it in the next month. 150628

This hitch has excellent build quality, and it fits perfectly on my 2010 Honda Insight. High-quality instructions were included (with pictures from an Insight) which allowed me to install the hitch myself with relative ease from the comfort of my garage (about 2 hours to install as a first-timer). Also comes with fishing wire necessary to properly place the bolts in the frame. My only gripe is that it came with a hitch pin and clip, but when I ordered I was made to believe that was sold separately, so now I have two. At under $2 for the pin, not a big deal. Very pleased and can't wait to use!! 91450

The hitch is outstanding. It is flush under the vehicle and fit like a glove.The directions, however for installation were just a bit off. For example, I did not need to even remove my splash guards and they didn't need to be trimmed. It was annoying to find this out AFTER I had removed them. Mine are Honda splash guards and the ones in the picture I've never seen. In addition, I wish the technical directions for the fishing of the square washer and bolt were a bit LARGER and more clear. TOO TINY. (I found by going on line, the video was much more helpful.) Everything else was fine as described. The installation took me, as a scraped knuckle mechanic, about 2 hours. My wife's car now has my Thule bike rack attached and she can take the bikes on her own without using my car. A welcome relief. 54307

Great quality hitch that installed easily on my Honda Insight with no holes needing to be drilled. I use the hitch with a basket for extra luggage carrying capacity. This system is much more aerodynamic, more secure and cheaper that rooftop carry systems. I am very satisfied with my purchase. 9369

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Recommended Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 2011 Honda Insight
  • The trailer hitch receiver we have to fit your 2011 Honda Insight is the Curt # C11051. Curt does require using a support strap when you're using a bike rack with this hitch. The strap is # 18050. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter what rack you're carrying the strap is still required. The Swagman XC # S64650 is a great choice for a rack. It's extremely popular and has great reviews. The only thing I would suggest you consider is a folding rack. This way you would be able to access...

  • Cargo Carrier Available that Can Fit Curt Class I Hitch C11051
  • We have cargo carriers designed to be used on Class I hitches like the Curt # C11051 that you referenced. The most popular option would be the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18145. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. This carrier has a higher capacity than the hitch but as long as you stay under the hitch's 200 lb capacity you would be just fine. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2010 Honda Insight
  • For your 2010 Honda Insight I would recommend the CURT Class I Trailer Hitch, item # 11051, and a two bike rack like the Swagman XC2 Wheel Mount Bike Rack, item # S64650, or the Reese 2 Bike Folding Rack, item # 63120. The only hitch available for the Insight is a Class I hitch and the weight capacity of Class I hitches will not allow for carrying more than two bikes. Putting bikes on a rack farther out than where two bikes will fit can cause too much torque on the hitch or vehicle frame...

  • Thule Easyline Trailer # TP125 Recommendation for Transporting a Wheelchair
  • I do have an option for you, but the tongue weight capacity for this Curt Trailer Hitch # 11051 is 200 lbs, and since your wheelchair and lift weigh about 315 lbs I would strongly recommend that you do not attempt to transport your wheelchair this way. You would most likely damage the hitch and/or the vehicle frame of your 2011 Honda Insight. Especially if you were to use a 2 inch adapter, as hitch adapters and extenders cut the tongue weight capacity of the hitch in half when used....

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2010 to 2014 Honda Insight
  • Curt trailer hitch # C11051 fits the 2010 to 2014 Honda Insight. I have included a link to a video showing installation for you. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load...

  • Recommendation for 2 Bike Rack To Fit a 2011 Honda Insight
  • I would say that the Yakima FullBack rack, item # Y02633, that you mentioned would be the best choice for your vehicle. Yakima recommends this rack for your vehicle and notes that the hooks installed in the bike rack work with glass hatches.. Yakima physically tests their racks on the vehicles they recommend them for. The Thule Passage, # TH911XT, rack is recommended by Thule, but does not include a glass hatch hook like the Yakima rack does, so I would vote for the Yakima rack in this...
