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. Technical Support

At 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. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Honda Accord

Today we are going to be installing hitch part number 24787 from Draw-Tite on a 2006 Honda Accord. This installation will also apply to Hidden Hitch part number 60953. We are underneath the vehicle. The first thing we want to do to gain access to the frame rail is to go ahead and lower the exhaust down from the passengers side frame rail. There are actually two hangers that we are going to need to remove to lower the exhaust down. The one here on the outboard side, about midway up the muffler here, that is going to need to be pried off. And I definitely recommend to spray it down with some form of spray lubricant, like a WD-40. It makes the removal a lot easier. And the second exhaust hanger that we are going to need to lower is a little bit forward here of the muffler, right dead center of the car.

Before I remove the second exhaust hanger, I am going to go ahead and use a basic tow strap to support the exhaust tube, so that when I remove the second hanger the exhaust does not fall down and damage the exhaust system. OK, with the exhaust lowered, I am going to go ahead and point out the mounting locations for the trailer hitch. The center mounting location will be to the tow loop here that is mounted on the bottom of the trunk well. And you can see on the drivers side frame rail we have got two existing holes we are going to be using the rearmost hole as our attaching point on the frame rail. And we are going to have the same thing here on the passengers side.

In order to get the hardware into the frame, we are going to be using the fish wire that is provided in the installation kit. We are going to take the 7/16 block, which you can see has a few notches cut out in it, and the 7/16 carriage bolt, as well. These are going to up into this hole, and then we are going to pull it back down into place. To do that, we just want to go ahead and feed the fish wire into the block and then wrap the threads of the carriage bolt with the fish wire and feed it up into the hole, followed by the block. And we want to put the notches in first that is going to allow it to go into the frame a little bit easier. And then we just pull it back down into position. And we are going to do that on the passengers side location, as well. And with those two fasteners in place, we can go ahead and put our hitch up into position. I am actually going to attach it to the center tow hook first. We are going to put the 1/2-inch carriage bolt in through.

We are going to take the flat block and place it on the other side. We will come over to the bottom of the frame and go ahead and lift the arm up into position. And again, we are just going to attach this tie with the 7/16 conical-tooth washer and the 7/16 nut. Now that we have got all of the hardware into position, we can go ahead and torque all of our bolts down. We are going to start by torquing the ones at the bottom of the frame on each side first, and then we will come back and torque the one for the center tow hook attaching point last. You want to check with your directions to verify the appropriate torque rating for each individual bolt. And with all of our bolts torqued down, we want to make sure we put our exhaust back up on its hangers, and our installation will be complete. This will conclude the installation of hitch part number 24787 from Draw-Tite on a 2006 Honda Accord.

I've just installed the hitch, and while it wasn't a walk-in-the-park to put on my '04 Honda it really wasn't all that bad. I'd agree it is a "5" out of 10 in difficult, but this is no reflection on the hitch: it's on Honda's design of the car. We've been wanting to get kayak trailer. Between the installation video, people's comments here on how their installation went, the etrailer site actually putting a green "check" confirming this hitch goes with my car... these all helped sway me to actually give it a try doing my own installation. Helpful tips for me in installation - 1) Watch the installation video a few times *before* even starting. This helped a *lot* to have things straight in your mind on what to do. 2) Use WD-40 on the rubber muffler mounts for easier removal. 3) Use adj. pliers on the rubber mounts when removing them. Try and get one jaw on the tip of the muffler pin and the other on the opp. side of the rubber mount for leverage. 4) If bolts are rusted a bit on your heat shields above the mufflers, *before* trying to loosen them actually tighten them just a *tiny* bit or enough to see them move. THEN try and loosen. This may save you twisting the heads of the bolts off. 5) Someone else wrote that they could not get the washers *and* the nuts to fit on the bolts holding the hitch to the frame, and that they first just used the nuts and tightened everything down on both sides, then loosen one side and *then* put the washer and nut back. This worked well for me. Thanks for mentioning it! 6) Don't forget to use a torque wrench to tighten the bolts correctly. I did not use car ramps, but if you have them I suspect it would have greatly helped. My point is it *is* possible to install without them, just not as easy. It looks great under my car and barely noticeable. Two thumbs-up here! 408242

I'm handy with tools but not with cars; this took about 1.5 hours to install, no problem. Watch the installation video on YouTube, it's much more helpful than the printed instructions. Unhooking the rear exhaust hanger was the toughest part. Like the video says, soak it in WD-40 first. Then I used the small pry bar shown in the picture. I positioned it so that the tip is between the two pegs at the back and braced against the bottom side of the trunk and I was able to slowly pry it off. To put it back on, I sat on the ground facing the muffler and pushed it back in place on with the long screw driver shown. The printed instructions suggest leaving the fish wire on the bolt so that the arm of the frame doesn't push it back into the frame. While this would be bad, keeping the wire on makes you have to remove the wire while holding the hitch frame in place, which is difficult. Take the wire off and just be careful is my advice. I tried attaching the frame to the back tie-down loop first, as the video suggested, but found that I couldn't get the other two holes lined up. It would be helpful to have someone hold the frame up while you're trying to attach it. If not, four bricks will hold it high enough to be attached (see picture.) 108183

Ordered the Invisible Hitch for the 2005 Honda accord. The video made it look simple enough. I was impressed with the "No drilling required" option and was a deciding factor for this old man. It did take me a couple of hours to completely install but not a fault of the product. i had dual mufflers making it a little more work but in all honesty the two rain showers and an 'emergency' run to the store for great grandson's diapers was the worst of it. I did jack it up on jack stands and sprayed the rubber muffler hangers before the first storm so they soaked during the 2 hour ordeal. After things finally dried out i lowered the mufflers and removed the heat shields (ahem - for drilling) on both sides. This was the most time consuming part. Then drilled the obligatory holes 4 1/2" from mounting hole. Really no big deal as it is thin aluminum. I couldn't get the nuts to catch a thread with the washers as the heat shield's ribbing was too thick. No brainer! Snugged them up w/o washer to 'squish' the heat shield's into submission then snug the center hanger then remove one nut at a time and insert washer & torque to spec. Repeat. Torque center hanger to spec. Push the rubber muffler hangers back into place and remove from jack stands. The wiring harness was hampered by a rain shower (again) and the colors didn't math up. Luckily, the connectors were I-D-ten-T proof so after the shower plugged them in and checked connections replacing the inner lining and making sure the rubber seal was in place. I am a happy camper. Easy enough for a do-it-yourselfer for sure. p.s. those lead wires were indispensable! 175489

Where they say drill a hold 4 1/2" from the front hole, I found that it had to be about 4 1/8", or the hitch frame support bolts won't line up with the would line up hitch frame support holes. The centers of the two holes on the car frame are 4 1/8" apart. Measure them and you'll see. Also, they don't tell you the what diameter to drill. I used 1/2", but then found that I had to wallow out the hole in the shield to the same diameter as the hole in the car frame, which is about 1". This allowed me to have some wiggle room to allow the support bolts to line up with the holes in the hitch frame. Would be nice if the support bolts were 1/4" longer so that it would be MUCH easier to feed them through the hitch frame, leaving enough length sticking out to start the nuts threading onto them. Also, DON'T remove the lead wires from the bolts until you have successfully gotten the support bolts to line up with the hitch frame, and they are extending out long enough to thread the nuts onto them. Otherwise, the installation process will end up pushing the bolts inside the car frame, and you'll never get them out. You'll be up the creek at that time. Also, I found a VERY easy way to remove the muffler hangers from the muffler hanger rods. Apply the lubricant as shown in the video. Wiggle the mufflers around to distribute the lubricant. Then with large channel locks, put one jaw on the muffler hanger support rod, and the other jaw behind the rubber hanger. Squeeze the channel locks and the rubber hangers slide off the metal hangar rods easily. I did all four of mine in about 3 minutes. 247894

I put this hitch on my 2004 Honda Accord because I sold my pickup but still needed a way to haul large or heavy objects. The hitch was easy to install, except for the top muffler bracket is kind of hard to slide off. I do have a car lift, so that made it a lot easier. I bought a utility trailer to pull with my car, it fits on the hitch perfectly and sits at a nice angle for towing. The hitch is barely noticeable when not in use. I am very pleased with this hitch. 137067


The hitch is great, I use it frequently and really like it.

First let me say I was very satisfied with ETrailer's service. It was easy to purchase, I watched their video, easy to install, and I received the product in just a couple of days. I'm very pleased with the service and I will be purchasing more products from them. As far as the DrawTite product - I'm very disappointed. I didn't notice a problem with the hitch until it was installed. Once installed, I could see that the square sleeve that comes off brace was not welded at a perfect 90 degree angle. Its at least 5 degrees off, which mean when I slide my hitch mounted bike rack (the reason I bought the hitch) in the sleeve, it doesn't stand straight up at a 90 degree angle, it leans to the left considerably. I am very, very, disappointed with the DrawTite product and will not be buying another DrawTite product. 67487

Great design and fit for my 2007 Honda Accord 4 cylinder. eTrailer videos were especially helpful regarding how to lower the exhaust. As instructed, I sprayed both hangers with WD40 and the lower hanger came right off, using a pair of channelock pliers. The upper hanger was a bit more difficult, requiring a pry bar and block of wood (place the block of wood behind the hanger for the pry bar to rest on). I was a little nervous about removing the exhaust hangers, but it wasn't so bad. Other than that, it was a piece of cake. The included "bolt leaders" are an ingenious design, which helps to prevent you from losing a bolt up in the car frame. Total installation time was approximately 1 hour, including time to lower the exhaust. My 9 year old was nearby to hand me bolts, nuts, and washers when I needed them, but otherwise I was able to install the hitch by myself. eTrailer service and shipment was very efficient and I strongly recommend them. The only mild complaint is that eTrailer attached a sticker to the hitch -- I'm a bit picky about things like that, but I was able to remove the eTrailer sticker, as well as the Draw-Tite stickers for a cleaner look. 136110

I purchased the Thule TH9025 4-bike carrier and it is very high quality. I wanted anti-sway, a way to lock the carrier so it couldn't be stolen, as well as the bike lock and this had it all plus lifetime warranty. Also includes adapter to go from default 1-1/4" to 2" square receiver. Works great on my 2012 Sienna which has a Class III (2") hitch. I also purchased the Draw-Tite 24787 hitch receiver which was installed on my 06 Accord and worked out very well (easy install) and handles the 4-bike carrier very nicely. E-trailer was great to do business with and provided very fast shipping. Will definitely be a repeat customer with e-trailer. 49224

Hitch installed very easily, 25 min tops...but not 100% happy with it. It will do what I need it to do just fine, but the reason I bought this hitch brand for a few more bucks than a drawtite is that in the pictures of it installed on the silver honda accord, the breakaway chain loops were tucked up and rather hidden. This is also the case in the install video for the hidden hitch, it has the flat, tucked up and away style loops. I know it is a nit-picky complaint, but I'm particular with my car and wanted those breakaway chain loops tucked up as much as possible. The hitch pictures (not on a car) are exactly what you get, not what is displayed on the pictures of a hitch installed on the accord. The only other complaint I have is that after one use of the breakaway loop, the finish has already worn off and bare metal is showing. Being particular about my car, I'm not excited at the fact this will likely rust and I'll likely want to take it off and get it stripped and coated in a better quality finish at some point. 25640

Installation instructions are a little light for a V6 Accord. It also references an illustration that doesn't seem to appear on the sheet. The only difference between a standard and V6 is the heat shield and an extra muffler, so it shouldn't be too hard to install. I do like that they have installation videos on the site (though none for V6 models). The instructions say "Hitch should only be used in the RISE position" with no further description, simple enough to search, but would have been nice for them to provide a picture or say that the rise position is basically where the hitch ball attachment angles upward and the ball sits on top of that... the hitch ball mount is intuitively used in the drop or angled downward position most of the time. Rise postion: _0_ __/ Drop position: __ \_0_ Shipping was super fast, however, the hitch did come with a few scratches and scrapes through the powder coat down to the metal. Hoping these small scratches don't affect long term rusting. 20414

Product showed up very quickly, followed the directions in the video which is much clearer then the printed ones. Only problem I had was getting the back muffler hanger off (never did but moved it enough to get the bolts in). Probably the issue was mostly having to do this with a cast on my right forearm. So if I can get it on with an arm and a half it's pretty straight forward. Looks good on the car, tucked under ok. Even the wiring was pretty simple. 142293

I recently ordered the Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver and I couldn't be happier. The description of the parts on their website were spot on and what you see in the picture is exactly what you get (which is not always the case with every retail website). I also ordered the plug-in wiring kit made for my 2005 Accord, and a draw bar. The quality of each item is very good and the installation was easy. The only frustrating part was removing the muffler from the mounts. (Follow the directions on etrailer's web video and use lots of WD-40!!). Once the muffler is out of the way the rest is a breeze. I would say an average do-it-yourselfer can have the receiver installed and wired in about 45 minutes. 20 minutes of that time is spent removing the muffler. 20 for installing the receiver, and 5 for wiring the harness. The service was great. The packaging was excellent, and the shipping was fast. As a whole, everything exceeded my expectations. 31367

Mostly expect to use this receiver to carry a bike rack on my 2007 Honda Accord. I had read comments by folks who'd done their own installation, which helped a great deal to inspire confidence in this purchase. This "shade tree" mechanic spent about two hours, including jacking up and down, placing stands, etc. doing the install -- by myself -- on my 4-cylinder model. Can't imagine how much more frustrating it would have been with another muffler (V6). Install kit was great, complete with clear instructions, parts and fish wire. Driver's side was good practice; passenger side was tedious, due to muffler proximity. Rubber muffler suspension/damping bushing was nearly impossible for me to budge, based on location, but I was able to get the parts in place and do the install without dropping the muffler. It's on, looks good and I'm excited about being able to transport my cycles. 189132

This is the first time I installed a Trailer Hitch Receiver and I was nervous about drilling holes to the heat shield (needed for V6 exhaust). It took me a few hours to complete the installation. I just followed the instructions and watched the demo video. The reference dimension on the instruction is vague and just showing ball park locations. Do use the hitch receiver to mark the holes on the heat shields before removing for drilling. When mounting the final assembly, the given screws may seem too short at first. I had to tighten the nuts without using the washers first just to compress the heat shield so the nuts could catch the screw thread with the washers in between. Then remove the nuts and re-tighten with the washers was easy. The final assembly is a perfect fit. I am very happy with this item. E-trailer ships it super fast. Extra stars if I could. 17164

High quality product. Great customer support and communication. Relatively easy install with the only complications coming from the vehicle design itself. Great company to do business with. 129726


Had the hitch for a year now and no problems or issues. The hitch will likely last longer than the car.

The positives: 1. eTrailer's ordering + delivery was very good. 2. Product works as expected. The downsides: 1. As mentioned in several other reviews, the exhaust muffler is REALLY hard to move. I could have fit this thing within 10 minutes if it wasn't for the exhaust, as it turned out it took hours. The instruction manual doesn't mention the exhaust and the video only mentions that it needs to be removed and my exhaust certainly didn't pop off like theirs did! It required an awful lot of pushing, pulling and lubricant to get it all sorted out. My hint is to get a long screwdriver as a leaver behind the rubber mount and use it as a lever and pushed against the exhaust the other way. Getting it back on was pretty hard too, but once it aligned it did just pop on. 40221

I have a 2004 4cyl Accord. Getting the rear exhaust hanger off took me somewhere between 45 minutes and an hour. At first I tried to work it off by pushing from the drivers side like other reviewers mentioned, but I didn't get very far with that. I ended up pulling some of the passenger side bumper off so I could work a pry bar in from that side and that worked. Installing the hitch took maybe 10 minutes after that. And the exhaust hanger went back on without tools since it was all lubed up at that point. So far I have only used the hitch to pull a log splitter but it works great. 70176


The hitch was great while I had it. I used it to haul a number of things and never had any problems. I sold the car a couple months ago and they were happy to get the hitch on there.

Hitch arrived after 2 or 3 days. I installed on 2007 Accord (4 cylinder), as advertised NO DRILLING on 4 cylinder. Only difficulty at all was loosening the exhaust system. Lower came off by hand. Upper is easier with a 2 foot pry bar. Use WD 40 as shown in the video and just patiently work it loose with the bar behind the rubber connector and working against the frame. At first you might think it comes off the pin on the muffler but it actually comes off the pins on the frame. The video is a little unclear about that step. I told my buddy about my new hitch and he said he's used etrailer in the past with good results too. Now I still have to do the electrical but hoping that's just as easy. I would purchase from them again. 41048

I purchased this hitch largely based on the outstanding information provided on the etrailer web site which insured that the product would not only match my 2005 Honda Accord but also would match the Thule bicycle rack that I wanted to use with it. My friends warned me that I would regret trying to install my own hitch but with the etrailer instructional videos and the supplied printed instructions I had no problems whatsoever. Plus, by buying both the hitch and rack together I got free shipping. And then there was the incredibly fast processing and shipment of my order. Four business days from the moment I submitted the order in Missouri until it showed up on my doorstep in California. Great work guys. 23231

Good product. I have a 2007 Honda Accord. The instructions say to drop the exhaust. I can understand why they want you to do that. but honestly i didn't need to. it was a bit of a pain to reach up around the exhaust to get at the bolt but with some careful maneuvering, I was able to get the nut on the bolt, and get the hitch installed WITHOUT drilling/removing/ or modifying anything. I'll have to let you all know how it works out for carrying a bike rack :) My ONLY concern was NOT with the hitch, but with the "tiedown" loop thats welded to the car that you bolt the hitch to, seems flimsy. but thats not an issue with the product. 88768

etrailer service was fine. The hitch I bought was terrible. I'm a car guy, and do most of my own maintenance as well as having 3 older hobby cars. I tried putting this hitch on for the better part of an afternoon and gave up. In frustration I chucked it across my driveway. The hole thing is distorted and the receiver was welded at an angle so the rack would have been tilted at 5-10 degrees. What garbage. I'll never purchase another Draw-Tite product. It has been hanging on a bike hook in my garage to remind myself never to buy another. Bought another hitch for the same application and am happy with it. 441291

The product was delivered quickly, but one of the ends had pushed through the packaging. No damage was done but it made it a little more difficult to carry through the house. Installation was relatively easy, although we had to lower the exhaust on the 4-cylinder model to access the side rail. Also, there are 2 sizes of screws: smaller ones for the side rails and a larger one for the loop in the middle of the bumper. I initially tried to thread the wire-guide on the screw that was too large, so watch out for that. I haven't used it yet, but happy with the delivery and installation. 135919

The entire experience with etrailer was fantastic! The installation videos were great. This company knows how to communicate. From ordering to shipping to delivery, they communicated with me via email at every step. They sent the correct products, they were good quality and packaged well. I installed the hitch and trailer wiring harness in about 90 minutes. The only difficult part was, as others have said, removing the Honda exhaust hanger. (Try pushing it off from the driver's side instead of pulling it - that worked for me.) If you are on the fence about where to buy - get it here. 57518

I think the mounting method described in the instructions for this hitch are incorrect for V6 engined models. The instructions call for the the heat shield to be bolted between the hitch and the frame rail. The heat shield is a thin piece of corrugated material and can interfere with getting a clean/tight install. It also will rub against the hitch (defeating the point of a heat shield). A better install method is to put larger holes in the heat shield so it can be bolted up after the hitch is mounted directly to the frame rails. Other than that the hitch works great. 16962

Hitch was simple to install. On an 06 Honda Accord 4Dr the heat shields you are instructed to unbolt are actually welded to the muffler. just pull off the muffler hanger donut and there is enough room to fish the frame bolts in. It's a little tight at this point getting the muffler side bolt started but seems better than drilling holes! I've used these types of hitches on Honda's for years without issue. This one is even better, prior years (2000 accord) require drilling holes in pan for spare tire. 16938

The video is all you really need to install this baby. The only problem I had was removing the rubber exhaust holder on the passenger side of the car (2007 Honda Accord). That itself took about an hour (and several bruises on my arms, lol). Once I got the exhaust out of the way, it took me less than 15 minutes to bolt on and torque everything down. I used some Loc-Tite on the threads cause I don't anticipate removing the hitch anytime soon. I couldn't believe how simple this was. Thanks eTrailer! 26457

The hitch fit was great and looks good on my 2006 accord 4dr.The installation was pretty easy for the most part.The only glitch was the hanger on top of the muffler.It was at a hard location to get to.So what I did was pull down on the muffler and put a wood block between the body and the muffler.That gave me enough room to get to the mounting holes.Just remember to remove the wood block afterwards.Lol.But all together a very easy installation.Took me about 45 minutes from start to finish. 114548

Pretty quick and easy to install. I used a pair of ramps to lift the back of my car high enough so I could roll under easily. Did the installation by myself. Hardest part of the whole process is the exhaust hanger that is up under the exhaust - I used a Wonder Bar to pry it off easily enough, but getting it back on took a lot of work and WD-40. A torque wrench with a universal joint is required to tighten the nut under the muffler due to the angle, like in the video. 308057

I ordered the trailer hitch for our Accord V6. The online process was a snap, came within a week with free shipping. Hitch and all parts were as expected. Installation took a little longer since I had to deal with dual mufflers and dual heat shields but overall very straight forward. Check out the etrailers links to YouTube on how to install. Very helpful. Torqued everything down per spec. The trailer hitch looks great on the car. Thanks! 80202

The trailer hitch I ordered for my 2004 Honda Accord arrived a few days after I ordered it. Everything was in order. I had a local auto body shop install the unit on my car. Because I have a 6 cylinder Accord, the exhaust mufflers had to be lowered and the heat shields removed and drilled before the unit could be bolted in place. This took the mechanic a little over an hour in labor. The installed hitch works exactly as expected. 55918

Installed as shown in video for most part but I would recommend that the heat shield be flattened around the drilled hole. Had trouble getting bolt through far enough to start nut on that side since the waffling in the heat shield added another 1/4" to the thickness the bolt needed to pass through. Also would recommend the hole in the heat shield be drilled extra large to allow room for movement when aligning hitch. 89080

Install was straight forward and simple. Order was correct, shipping was fast. Only minor issue was one washer was too small for the bolt that goes through the center loop under the spare tire well. Put on a lock washer we had laying around and solved. Trailer wiring kit was a piece of cake. Would definitely order from here again and recommend you guys to anyone that needs a trailer hitch or accessory. Excellent 41084

Great experience Easy use web site. Tells exactly what is included and what isn't. (I couldn't tell what I was buying on some of the other sites.) Prompt shipping. Easy install.

Fantastic all around. 83572

After you painfully pry off the rubber exhaust bracket the rest of the installation is a breeze, even in the garage lying under the car. I recommend a lot of WD40 and a 1-foot piece of a broomstick that you wedge in from the rear end as lever to loosen the bracket. The video also has a much better suggestion to put the bolts in place than the paper instructions that come with the hitch. (2007 4-cylinder) 27368

Great hitch for a decent price. Fit great, and not too difficult to install. Worst part was getting the muffler hanger loose so I could get access to mount one side of hitch. We bought an old pickup truck bed/ trailer conversion instead of buying an old pickup truck. Trailer and hitch were a lot more affordable than a truck would have been, and a lot less maintenance. 27048

Everything was very good and I had no problem putting the hitch on myself. The only thing I would suggest to make it even easier to put on is if you could have the front mounting bolts 1/2 inch longer that way it would be easier to make use of the washers and getting the nut started. A great product and you gave great service. Thank you ....Bill Keen 62972

Problem w muffler hanger I couldn't get the muffler hanger off. Otherwise, everything fit perfect. The instructions didn't say anything about dropping the muffler; this made it very diffucult due to to the limited clearance between muffler and frame. I'm sure there is a simple way to remove the rubber muffler hanger, I just didn't figure it out. 1220

Installation notes: 1. For the front exhaust hanger, note from the video that he pulls the hanger to the side and not front to back. He takes it off the two pegs. This is shown quickly and it is easy to miss. 2. There is not much space above the exhaust and in the video he uses an angle. I also used a short socket and not a deep one. 37199

Purchased the Draw Tie Sportframe Hitch to attach to my 07 Accord. It was easy to install after watching the video. i did have dual exhaust, but the procedure was almost identical on both sides. Slightly longer bolts would have been a little easier to manipulate, but otherwise I highly recommend this product. 51060
