Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

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.


etrailer.com Technical Support

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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Honda Civic - Draw-Tite

Today on this 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 24763. Here are a few measurements that will help when selecting accessories for your new hitch such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be 4 inches and from the top of the receiver tube to the ground will be 11 inches. Now we'll go ahead with our install. To begin our install, we'll need to remove the plastic shroud on the driver's side. There are four pushpins and three 10-mm bolts holding it up.

We'll use a screw driver to remove the pushpins. With that removed we next need to remove the exhaust hanger here which we'll use a special tool to remove it. With that out of the way, we can now remove and trim the heat shield. It has four screws holding it up, two on the outboard side and two on the inboard side. With the heat shield removed, we will trim it here as this point will be where our hitch will eventually mount up to while the rest will be sandwiched between the hitch and the frame.

With the heat shield prepped and out of the way, we can now point out our mounting points for the hitch. We'll be using these holes here on both the driver's and passenger's side as well as the tow loop here in the middle of the trunk area. Due to this being a Hybrid we'll need to drill the hole to the proper size. Before we can put the hitch into position, we need to trim the plastic shroud and put it back into place as the hitch will be on the outside of it. You also have the option of leaving it off.

To make the proper cuts we'll align the hitch over the shroud and using a colored marker will outline where we need to cut. Now with our marks made we can cut out what we need. To do this you can use either a utility knife or a Dremel tool. Now we'll put our shroud back into place loosely. With all our prep work done we can lift the hitch into position.

You may want to use an extra set of hands to help you do this as you want to make sure you lift the exhaust into position as you lift the hitch. We'll attach it to the tow loop first securing it with a U bolt. Next, we'll go to the passenger's side and place our handle nut into position before placing our heat shield up. We can now put our heat shield back up and attach it with the three fasteners. The handle nut assembly will also be placed on the driver's side. After that we can attach our hitch to the handle nuts using the bolts and conical tooth washers. With everything in place we can tighten our hitch down and torque to specification as stated in the instructions. Our last step will be to reinstall the rubber hanger to the exhaust and put the rest of the fasteners into the plastic shroud. And there you have it for part number 24763 from Draw-Tite on our 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid.

It's probably a good design for a stock exhaust, but doesn't work perfectly with an aftermarket exhaust system. With my MagnaFlow exhaust on a 2007 Honda Civic, there is only about a 1/2 of clearance above and to the left between the muffler and hitch. When I drive over rough roads, the muffler bumps into the hitch and makes a loud noise. There doesn't appear to be a way to stop the contact, but I plan to find a solution to at least dampen the noise. Other than this, the install took 1 hour by myself using ramps. Easy install, but would have been easier with a second person and probably 15 minutes quicker. 617054


Comments

Draw-tite designs the hitch to be compatible with a stock exhaust system. There are some things you can do to move the exhaust a bit further away from the hitch, take a look at the help article Ive linked for you.

4 stars because it fits and seems strong. 5 stars if all goes well after I use it. I purchased the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" for ( code 24763). I installed it on a 2011 Honda Civic LX. I was happy to find that it fit correctly. Installation is as indicated in the videos. I used to 5 gallons buckets to help hold it up to install it and removed passenger side tire. It is a little tight on passenger side, but as expected. I have not actually pull the light trailer I plan to, but I think it will be ok, as I only plan to do it occasionally and at short distance. My manual for Honda Civic indicates no more than 1000 lbs. 489515


Comments

The product has worked as expected. I occasionally tow, relatively light weight stuff, no more than 50 mi, usually less. Saves me from having to rent a truck.

This installation turned out to be harder than I anticipated. I had to totally remove the plastic pan to make the hitch bolt up to the frame, which meant I had to refasten the bumper screws to the frame so that there was stability back there. I think the hitch will work just fine, but it was not an easy job for me and my elderly companions. 146026

The hitch has been used a number of times and is doing fine.

Difficult install drops rating This hitch comes bundled with the necessary parts for mounting a hitch ball, which is nice, and all the parts are high quality. Mounting under my 2007 Civic coupe was a little tougher than the instructions led me to believe. I had to lower the exhaust, but then when the hitch was mounted to the frame, the exhaust would not clear the hitch to get back into its mounting grommits, so I had to remove the hitch and work with the exhaust resting on the hitch while I bolted in place. This resulted in some difficulty. Also, the heat shield had trouble clearing the hitch when trying to put it back in place, so the rear drivers side bolt had to be left off. I installed on the street, and am sure it would be easier if one had a lift/ramp to work under. 247

I discovered etrailer while researching a hitch for my 2008 honda civic. I was very impressed that they had videos showing installation for both the hitch and wiring for my exact car. 4 days later the hitch and wiring were all installed with no troubles. Everything installed exactly as the videos showed. I couldn't be happier. Etrailer has earned my business. I rate them A+ for support, value and quick shipping. 151468


Comments

Thank you for following up with me. I couldnt be happier one year later with our purchase. The hitch and wiring for the trailer work perfectly and I would not hesitate to purchase from you again and have already recommended your site to others. I was very impressed especially with the videos that allowed me to see how installation should go before I even ordered. This is a great feature. Thanks again for great service!!!

This hitch installed easier than my last one. It took me 1.5 hours by myself, with car up on ramps. Another set of hands just to steady things would have cut 30 minutes off the install. I had to trim the heat shield after the hitch was up. Much easier than I expected. Mark with a Sharpie and cut with tin snips. The metal was so thin, I think heavy scissors would have cut it. I like the "U Bolt" attachment to the tow hook. It takes the weight off of your arms for the rest of the install. The "handle nuts" are a really great help. You can hold the handle nut while you screw the bolt up into the nut. Much easier than the "fishing wire" of my last Honda install. No drilling required on my 2012 Honda Civic EX. 221865

All bolts still tight. Hitch is doing well! The little Civic pulls it like its not even there.

I bought the Draw Tite hitch (24763) for a 2012 Civic coupe a few weeks back and managed to get FREE 2 day shipping. That same day I ordered a Thule Apex Bike rack on a separate order (3-5 day shipping) and I was surprised to have them both two days later! The ordered parts were all correct but I was a bit confused at first because the website differentiated between 2012 Honda coupe not Si and Hybrid although it seems it works for all models ( instructions provided information to include Si and Hybrid models). It took awhile to install and was relieved to find out I did not have to drill any holes or make them larger. If you buy this product and install it yourself make sure that the U-bolt part fits all the way up otherwise your arm bolts will be misaligned with the frame. Since I thought I had ordered the incorrect product I called etrailer.com and spoke with Sam about the issue. He was able to help me out and provide more information on the product and order number. I was able to go to Draw Tite's website and get additional information to see if my model required drilling. If you happen to lose the instructions, the Draw Tite website will give you a way to print out the instructions. I also recommend watching the youtube video to make it easier otherwise you will struggle like I did. Overall the installation to about 2 hours since I had difficulty aligning the holes and trying to determine if drilling was required. From start to finish I would recommend this company for their dedication to getting your product to your door in a timely manner. If any issues arise they are great at helping resolve your issues within minutes of placing the call. I would definitely recommend this website to friends and any future customers that are researching etrailer.com for quality services. Hope this review helps you all out! 243807


Comments

This is an awesome product! I have not had any issues with the trailer hitch. The only thing that I have done is checked the bolts to ensure that they remain tight. After a year of owing it I would definitely still rate it as 4 stars and recommend it to friends.

I am reviewing the trailer hitch receiver AND the etrailer customer service. First off, the trailer hitch installation was straightforward, and the videos showed me exactly how to do it. I was able to install it myself, using my hydraulic jack at certain points to help me lift the hitch into position to bolt it in place. Please see the pics below. The customer service at etrailer is phenomenal! My order was upgraded to express shipping as a nice unexpected treat. I ordered the hitch receiver and also a bike rack. Both items arrived two business days later! However, there was a problem: the bike rack didn't have the included hardware kit (bolts, nuts, pins, etc.). Here's where I was impressed- etrailer reps immediately rush shipped me the missing hardware kit, and were absolutely pleasant on the phone and in emails. I am extremely impressed with this company, and will be ordering again. I highly recommend etrailer.com! Thanks! 24646

Ordered the Draw-Tite 24763 for my 2015 Honda Civic Sedan, and was very satisfied at the speed and detail of not only the correspondence and email between etrailer.com but also the shipping speed and condition of packaging. I received this in six days from start to finish of order. I did not spring for faster shipping and was satisfied with this type of time frame considering the size and weight of packaging. I also got the Thule Hitching Post TH934XTR four bike rack and THSTL2 hitch lock anti-rattle device. I had planned ahead by watching all of the great videos on etrailer and printed out some instructions from the site. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised with their attention to detail that this was unnecessary as they included a copy of the same instructions I printed in the box. The install went exactly like the instructions/videos said it would and if I hadn't been interested in getting the beauty plastic underbody piece back on I could have been done in fifteen minutes with a lift and another set of hands. All in all a very easy kit to install, and thanks to etrailer for the speed, quality, and including all the necessary hardware and instructions. 5/5 would definitely do business with again and recommend. 269802

Quick delivery. Easy to assemble and easily adjusts to different bike sizes. Feels secure once locking mechanism is engaged. I’ve only had it a week but so far everything is sturdy and tight. And it’s compatible with 1 1/4 or 2 inch receiver. And these parts come with it. No additional charge. Can’t beat this thing for the price. 656447

I have a lift so with some help from my brother I was able to install this hitch on my 2015 Honda Civic in about 20 minutes. If your Civic has the big plastic air diffuser on it you will need to remove it and put it in storage, as there did not seem to be an obvious way to use it without hacking it to pieces(you will lose some aerodynamic efficiency hauling bikes around anyway). I used the Youtube video E-Trailer has and it is a good guide. The hardest part is probably removing the rubber hanger bushing for the muffler, but if you spray a little soapy water or cleaner on there it is not that bad. I would definitely recommend getting someone to help with the install, as it would have been a little harder to do solo, but not impossible. I am using the Swagman G10 bike rack with my hitch and it is working great. The G10 can be folded up and the tire cradles do not hit the bumper on my Civic. 653488

Installed on a 2006 four-door Honda Civic. Installation was very easy - it took less than 1 hour from start to finish. If you have a couple wrenches, a set of jack stands and a floor jack you can do this project. In my application, I did not have to snip any of the muffler shielding (a big plus but your situation could be different depending on your model year). The only thing I did have to do were some adjustments to the muffler hangers as the muffler initially was clunking against the hitch. The adjustments I had to make were very minor - I just slightly bent the hangers a few millimeters away from the hitch and was good to go. The hitch is very solid. I use it with a Saris Bike rack to carry two 40+ lb bikes. Considering getting a cargo platform for it, as well. This was a game changer for me as I had always used a Yakima roof rack prior to this. I love getting better gas mileage and not having to hoist bikes onto the roof. 639129

The hitch works as advertised for carrying my bike rack. It arrived in good condition but one nut included was the wrong size. The correct nut was shipped quickly once I complained. Dropping the muffler is necessary for installation but that is more the fault of the car design than the hitch. 637263

Here are some examples of my experience ordering from Heidi: 1 she actually cared about me and showed it over the phone 2 she listened to my bike hitch requirements and confirmed all details 3 I could almost see her smiles over the phone 4 She was having fun working at her company and helping me at the same time 5 She shared the pricing, which also impressed me 6 Her delivery timing was faster than I expected 7 She told me a little bit about her company and how they are very proud 8 She followed up with an e-mail to make sure everything went well 9 She shared very helpful YOUTUBE videos that I watched to install the unit 10 The installation and end product was so fantastic that my biking buddies are now very jealous!!!!!!!! I thank Heide and all of her friends at etrailer for their service excellence and it looks like our other car will need a etrailer unit as well!!!!!!!!! 574339

Good hitch and good fit. I needed an additional hitch equipped vehicle to pull my small A class trailer on occasion if my larger vehicle is unavailable. I thought it would also be nice to be able to use a hitch mounted bike carrier. I called in to order and spoke with Angela because I had some questions. She was extremely helpful, answered all of my questions, set me up with everything I needed, and got it to me in 2 days. The hitch is well made, has a durable coating (my kids were messing with it before I installed it and it showed no marks) and it fit well. My only complaint on this hitch is that the center mounting u bolt is only a grade 2 fastener. My torque wrench malfunctioned and I broke the bolt. (No fault of etrailer or drawtite. That one is on me.) Replacement was easy with a 3/8 " cable clamp bolt, but I was a bit disappointed it wasn't a harder bolt to start with. I did not have to trim the heat shield over the exhaust on the 08 Civic, but I did need to trim the plastic cover on the driver's side to clear the hatdware. I used a dremel tool with a small cutting wheel and it went very smoothly. Angela also set me up with a Curt drawbar, ball and wiring kit too. Those are equally as pleasing and the wiring kit was the easiest I've ever installed. This is my second etrailer hitch purchase. I have found them to be responsive and helpful. I love the install videos they have on their site. It takes the guesswork out of the equation. The fit and installation go smoothly. (With this application, an extra set of hands would be very useful.) The pricing and service are fantastic. Did I mention that I really love the install videos they have on their site? The videos were the reason for my first hitch purchase from them. I thought a company willing to do that to make it easy for their customers, earned an opportunity for my business. etrailer is now my recommendation and go to source for trailering componants. 574041

Quality perfect. I should have bought this item sooner. We now have light towing capabilities on my wife's Honda Civic. And if she's happy, that's all that matters. I would like to commend retailer on a product well made. Fits like a glove, very easy to install, 1 hour tops with a floor jack and jack stands.

The installation was very easy per the instructions. After one year, the hitch is still performing as intended. I definitely would recommned this hitch for a honda civic. I installed a similar hitch from the same manufacturer on a 2007 accord with identical results. A well thought out design. On a side note, etrailer provided excellent customer service. When I place the order, it appeared it might not delivered in the stated time period. etrailer worked with the manufacture to make sure it was delivered within the stated time frame. 520122

So far so good. Ordering quick and easy. Package arrived quickly and undamaged. All the pieces in the box along with instructions. Not as easy to install as indicated. The nut and bolt in the muffler side very hard to line up and complete. The muffler is in the way and the mat led to tight quarters and a slight angle to deal with. Finally got it and all is good. 515551

If the muffler is lowered as shown in the video Ive linked, installation is much easier.

Solid product, relatively easy install. No drilling required on my 2012 Civic Ex. It took me the advertised 1.5hrs to do the install.

My only gripe is that it arrived with some chips in the paint, see photos. 457203

I installed the hitch, # 24763, approximately one year ago on my daughter's Honda Civic. She uses it for a bike rack. I greatly appreciate the installation instructions and videos. I followed the directions and torqued all bolts to specification. So far no rust or corrosion worth mentioning. 457066

The hitch has been working admirably. I bought a dealer installed hitch for my Subaru and it is not as robust as the hitch I purchased from eTrailer. No significant rust or degradation on the hitch from eTrailer.

Install went OK, a bit harder than I thought after seeing the install video on etrailer.com; I had to trim a bit both the exhaust shield and fuel tank plastic cover, none of which were done in the video for a same model car (2010 sedan non hybrid/ si). Other than that, smooth sailing. I give only 4 stars instead of 5 because the set missed one flange nut for the U-bolt; fortunately found an old one in my garage. So far, I made one trip of about 2 hrs with a Thule TH934XTR rack and 2 bikes on it - a lot better than my old trunk rack, that's for sure. 441656

only problem I really had was installing this hitch alone and at age 80. I used my floor jack to hold it in place. Honda civic 2014 fit well. instructions could have been better as to what hole the bolts lined up with and the difficulty with the rear under cover and getting it back on. the wiring was simple enough once I got the truck covering off. service good..arrived on time. 434954

During installation found it impossible to install the hitch and to re-install the plastic shroud part. Tried for over 2 hours, but could not make it work. Ultimately, had to leave the plastic shroud off. Otherwise the hitch does its job well. Does hit bottom on steep driveways with a moderate load in the car. 429791

I got in a rear-end car accident today and this rack saved me and my car - no joke. The rack material is so strong that my car was not damaged and the rack still functions! despite the fact that my car was pushed forward four feet. In addtion the rack works well for my bike. 419019


Comments

Thank you so much for your review. I hope everyone is ok! Just a quick note, when your vehicle has been involved in an accident, the manufacturer recommends that you replace the hitch or hitch accessory due to potential unseen damage resulting from the collision.

Installation on my 2010 Honda Civic was very easy. It took about an hour. I'm using the hitch with a platform style bike hauler. I can now haul my bike to trails further away from my house. Only downside is that having 2 bikes on the back of a Civic creates more drag than I anticipated. I'm probably going to install the transmission cooler which I originally didn't think necessary for just a bike rack. 410981

easy to install. didn't need to pull the exhaust shield off all the way. good logical hardware. only gripe I have is the stud in the receiver that prevents full insertion into hitch. 399170

Fairly easy install. I took the advice of another installer who suggested that one completely remove the muffler first which made the whole installation rather smooth - I had no problem reinstalling the three bolts holding the heat shield. I only had to ask my wife for a hand holding the hitch in place three times during the process. 398900

The product has a bump or hook on the inside of the hitch well that keeps me from being able to fit most hitches. Waste of money and time for me. I'll be buying another brand of hitch receiver. Do not buy. 383635

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Draw-tite 24763 vs Curt C11391 For 2015 Honda Civic Sedan
  • For your 2015 Honda Civic sedan the better option is the Draw Tite hitch # 24763 which is a confirmed fit. It doesn't require the stabilizer strap which is why I would recommend it for you. Curt requires the strap to provide extra support for when the vehicle goes over rough pavement or experiences a sudden shock like hitting a pothole. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch feel that this isn't necessary with their hitches. One isn't necessarily stronger than the other. Because the strap is...

  • Will Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier Fit 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch # 24763 will fit your 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid, so long as it is a 4-door sedan. This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver and you will absolutely be able to use the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18110 with the Draw-Tite hitch on your Civic. The cargo carrier weighs just 30 lbs and since the hitch has a 200 lb tongue weight capacity you will are left with the ability to carry 170 lbs of cargo in the carrier. To help keep your cargo dry and in...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Honda Civic
  • No drilling is required to install either the Curt hitch part # C11391 or the Draw Tite part # 24763 on your 2013 Honda Civic Sedan, but you will need to enlarge some access holes on the chassis of the vehicle. These hitches are pretty similar, but if you are looking for ease of installation the Draw Tite has more positive reviews from our customers so I would go with it. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2015 Honda Civic for Bike Rack
  • I have some good news for you, we offer a Class I 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch for your 2015 Honda Civic. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24763 because you won't have to use a stabilization strap # 18050 with your bike rack, like you will with the Curt hitch per their warranty. It sounds like your bike rack has an 1-1/4 inch shank, see attached Help Article on shank size and Class compatibility, which will mount into the 1-1/4 hitch receiver just great as long as it's Class I compatible like...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2008 Honda Civic for a Swagman XC Bike Carrier
  • Yes, we do have trailer hitches that will fit your 2008 Honda Civic and that will be compatible with the Swagman XC bike rack # S64650. The most popular option is Draw-Tite hitch # 24763. This is a Class I hitch rated for 200 pounds tongue weight, the amount of weight that can be suspended from the receiver. The bike rack weighs a little less than 30 pounds so you will have plenty of capacity left over for the bikes. I have linked a video to the right showing the hitch being installed...

  • Which Trailer Hitch Receiver is Less Noticeable on a 2006 Honda Civic
  • Both the Draw-Tite # 24763 and Curt # C11391 trailer hitch receivers that fit your 2006 Honda Civic are very similar in style. On both of them the receiver tube is visible under the rear of the vehicle. I've attached photos of both of them installed. One slight difference is how far the receiver tube sticks out. The Curt is a tucked under the car a little bit (About 5/8 of an inch) than the Draw-Tite but certainly not much.

  • Where is the Draw-Tite Class I Hitch # 24763 Manufactured
  • The Draw-Tite Class I hitch that fits your 2012 Honda Civic sedan, part # 24763, is made in Mexico. This is not at all uncommon for lighter-duty hitches like this. Curt offers their own Class I hitch, part # C11391, that is USA-made and which includes a pin and clip. Note that if used with any non-trailer load, say a bike rack or cargo carrier, Curt requires you to use their stabilizing strap # 18050 which is not a requirement for the Draw-Tite.

  • Is Modification Needed to Install Draw Tite Hitch on 2013 Honda Civic Coupe
  • To install the Draw Tite part # 24763 on your 2013 Hond Civic Coupe you'd need to enlarge a couple access holes in the frame, lower the exhaust temporarily and modify the heat shield slightly. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Drawbar Recommendation with 5 Inches of Rise for 2012 Honda Civic with Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24763 is confirmed to fit your 2012 Honda Civic. Once installed the measurement you'll want to use is from the inside top of the receiver tube which on our install was about 11 inches. You'll want to compare that 11 inches with the distance from the ground to the bottom of your trailer's coupler. A better drawbar for your Civic is the Curt # C45028 that will give you a 5 inch rise. For a hitch ball use either the 1-7/8 ball # C40001 or the 2 inch ball # C40018....

  • What is the Proper Rise/Drop Ball Mount for a 2006 Honda Civic
  • The recommended drawbar for a 2006 Honda Civic with Class I hitch is part # 3593. The hitch manufacturers recommend draw bars based on the weight capacity of the hitch and vehicle and the trailer coupler height of trailers that fall in that weight capacity. Part # 3593 is the proper amount of rise for most trailers that fall under 2,000 pounds. The rise on part # 3593 is 2-1/8 inch so if this rise will not keep the trailer level, chances are that trailer should not be towed with your vehicle. The...

The Draw-Tite hitch that fits is # 24763. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation and a link to the installation instructions for you. If you plan on doing some towing the correct ball mount is # 3593. For a 1-7/8...

It's important to know that with this trailer hitch you will need to use a stabilization strap # 18050 for any non-trailer load, bike rack or cargo carrier etc, per Curt's warranty. For a hitch that doesn't require this you will want the Draw-Tite # 24763. We are limited to the vehicle's our customer's bring to us to have installations done so we do not have an...

For a hitch for your 2012 Honda Civic you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24763. I attached an install video for you to check out.

You will need to check the owners manual of your vehicle. For a hitch the Draw-Tite part # 24763 would be a great choice as it is a confirmed fit.

  • When the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24763 is installed on your 2008 Honda Civic Coupe there will be about 4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on your rear bumper which wouldn't be enough since the Thule T2 # TH9044 requires that measurement to be 3-1/2 inches at most. If you check out the picture I attached you will see that the Curt Hitch part # C11391 will actually stick out past the bumper so it would work well for you with your T2 rack. Curt recommends...

  • Does Muffler Need to be Removed to Install Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2007 Honda Civic.
  • Technically the install is the same on all three model years. However, the installer did not raise the tailpipe tangs when raising the hitch in the video of the 2008. So to keep from having to remove the hitch he temporarily removed the muffler. The instructions say to perform this step in bold now so the tangs are intended to be raised with the hitch. The instructions were updated in 2015 so my guess is that this step was added. The instructions are linked for you on this page. When...

  • Is Stabilizing Strap Also Required for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on 2010 Honda Civic
  • You are correct. The Curt Class I Receiver Hitch # C11391, which is confirmed to fit your 2010 Honda Civic, requires you to use an additional stabilizing strap for non-trailer loads, such as bike racks and cargo carriers. This is simply an additional safety measure that Curt takes with their lower Class I and Class II trailer hitches, and is not necessarily an indication of the hitch's strength.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for a 2014 Honda Civic Sedan
  • In terms of wind resistance and using a trailer hitch mounted bike carrier there isn't going to be any difference between the two. However since 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches are used on smaller vehicles, such as your 2014 Honda Civic Sedan, more wind tends to get to the bikes (mostly the wheels) because the smaller vehicles are not as wide or tall as vehicles that use a 2 inch trailer hitch.
