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 - 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.

This is the second hitch we have purchased from etrailer. I arrived earlier than we expected and was in excellent condition. The web site has lots of instruction and videos that go into intimate detail on installation. It would be pretty hard to run into a problem they don't address. Excellent product, excellent support and service. 204087

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

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

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

Its been a year and so far not a single issue. Have used it multiple times this year with a small kayak trailer: worked great! Glad I got it.

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 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

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

I ordered this trailer hitch for my Honda Accord last year (December 2017). The shipping was really fast and installation was super easy. After its installation, I was able to attach a bike rack to it. I highly recommend using the hitch bike rack because it is quick and easy to get bike on and off the car, it has much less wind noise while driving at high speed, and I don't leave any dirt inside the car. It looks cool too. The trailer hitch has been very reliable and it is an excellent product. 591214

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


Comments

Thank you for contacting me. I have only had opportunity to actually use the trailer hitch two or three times since it was installed. As a matter of fact, yesterday was one of them. It has always worked without issue. It has maintained its cosmetic appearance. No rust or anything like that. No problems to report. I am a satisfied customer. And Im usually pretty critical.

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

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

Works great for what we want - to haul bikes. All went relatively smoothly on installation, but a couple of threads more on the two main bolts would have been appreciated. We had to torque things down and then remove the nut in order to get room for the lock washer on one side. The hitch sits farther forward from the rear of the car as compared to a similar hitch on our 2008 Accord. Thus, the bike rack is noticeably closer to the trunk/car body, and there is not as much maneuver room while loading the inside bike - it's a bit tight. But we're happy with what we got. 697420

Lindy was very helpful with assisting me in placing the order. Package arrived earlier than expected and the tow bar was in good condition (despite one leg protruding a few inches from the cardboard box, it hadn’t been damaged). Installation was very straightforward—hardest part was getting that rubber exhaust hanger off my Accord. Looks good and I will be immediately putting it to the ultimate test: mounting a bike rack with 2 bikes loaded for a 12 hour drive. I don’t expect any problems. 504539

well, it works. I bought it because I wanted an easy way to transport my bike. I used to have one of those multi strap carriers that mount on the trunk of the car, which took forever to attach and un attach. Plus my bike never really fit on it. And it wiggled as I drove. So last year I splurged on a Saris Bones rack, and ordered this trailer hitch. I had my mechanic install the hitch, and it's been just fine. 501529

Seems fairly solid. With the right tools (and having watched the video repeatedly), the installation was straightforward.

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 fit is perfect. However, the directions, while clear, do not give a clue how to lower the muffler for the installation. I struggled with it and ended up using a makeshift wedge to push the muffler out of the way enough to get an offset wrench on the nut. 403747

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

  • For your 2007 Honda Accord, I recommend taking a look at the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24787. This hitch has a Class I rating with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. The maximum gross trailer weight (GTW) and tongue weight (TW) this hitch can handle is 2,000 lbs and 200 lbs respectively. This is the only trailer hitch receiver that we have confirmed to fit your vehicle that does not require drilling for installation and is completely bolt-on. I have also attached an...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Honda Accord to Carry a Bike Rack
  • 2 inch hitches are reserved for larger vehicles with higher towing capacities like SUV's and trucks. 1-1/4 inch hitches are used on smaller vehicles like cars such as your 2007 Honda Accord. For more information on hitch sizes and classifications check out the link I attached. The only hitch options that are available for you 2007 Honda Accord are 1-1/4 inch hitches. The best recommendation I can make for you would be the Draw Tite hitch part # 24787. This is a great hitch that will...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for a 2004 Honda Accord Sedan and 40 Pound Downhill Bike
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24787 is an excellent option for your 2004 Honda Accord sedan and a bike rack. I do not recommend the use of a hitch adapter though because not only does it reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent but it also puts additional stress on the hitch since it extends the length. And the Thule T2 is a heavy bike rack. Its a great rack but heavy. I think that your idea of going with the BikeWing, # B01311, is the best option. This bike rack is rated...

  • Thule Doubletrack Platform Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Honda Accord
  • Yes, as long as you have a hitch installed on your 2006 Honda Accord you would be able to install a Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # TH9054. I attached a video of this rack being reviewed for you to check out. If you do not have a hitch installed on your vehicle already I would recommend you get a Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24787. I attached an installation video for this product also.

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2005 Honda Accord Coupe
  • I wish there was a way to install a 2 inch hitch on your Accord but the larger hitch sizes are only found on larger vehicles like trucks and SUVs. Plus the Yakima 1-1/4 inch bike racks don't fit Class I hitches like what your vehicle would have. Only hitch solution will be to go with a hitch and bike rack that both fit your vehicle. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo and install...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Honda Accord
  • The Draw Tite Hitch part # 24899 that you referenced will not fit a 2007 Honda Accord. If it was a year newer it would as this hitch will fit 2008-2013 Accords. You would want a Draw-Tite part # 24787 for your Accord. I attached an install video for you to check out. To complete your towing setup you may also be interested in the following products. A ball mount. Trailer wiring part # 118302 and 1-7/8 inch hitch ball part # 19256.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2006 Honda Accord
  • Unfortunately we only carry Class I Hitches with a 1-1/4" receiver for your 2006 Honda Accord Sedan. This is because your vehicle has a Gross Towing Weight Capacity of 1,000 lbs. and a Tongue Weight Capacity of 100 lbs. The hitch I recommend for your 2006 Honda Accord Sedan is the Draw-Tite Class I Hitch # 24787. I recommend this hitch because you do not have to use stabilizing straps like you would with the Curt Hitches when carrying all non trailer loads, like bike racks. The GTW...

  • Why Does The Ball Mount Not Slide All The Way In My Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch # 24787
  • The Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24787, is a Class I hitch. All of the hitches available for your 2007 Honda Accord are Class I hitches. The Class I hitch has a 2,000 lbs. towing capacity and a 200 lbs. tongue weight capacity. Sounds like the ball mount you are using is a Class II ball mount. The Class II ball mount is rated for 3,500 lbs. towing capacity and 350 lbs. tongue weight. It is designed to NOT fit a Class I hitch to keep somebody from overloading the Class I...

  • Is it Possible to Carry a 2 inch Bike Rack on a 1-1/4 inch Hitch
  • The thing about hitch adapters and hitch extenders is that they reduce the rating of the hitch by 50%. So if you had the Draw-Tite, part # 24787, that has a 200 lb tongue weight capacity you would only have 100 lbs of tongue weight capacity if you were to use an adapter. Based on the weight of your bikes and rack that would put you dangerously close to the capacity. If you decide to go ahead with this setup I would recommend the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 to help the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier for 2005 Honda Accord
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24787 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2005 Honda Accord. The two mounting arms of the hitch will indeed bolt directly to the vehicle's frame rails using existing holes for a no-drill installation. Other than these two bolt hole locations on the hitch, the only other attachment point is above the hitch receiver where it will attach to the vehicle's tie-down loop with a single carriage bolt and clamping block (along with a...

  • Hitch for 2005 Honda Accord to use With Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack
  • The 1-1/4" hitch I recommend for your 2005 Honda Accord coupe is the Draw-Tite # 24787. This hitch won't require any drilling to install unlike the comparable Curt hitches, and the Draw-Tite does not require the use of stabilization straps when using a bike rack like the Curt does. You would then be able use the 1-1/4" Tongue for Yakima HoldUp Bike Racks # 8880581 with your Yakima HoldUp # Y02443.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying a Beach Cruiser on a 2006 Honda Accord SE
  • We have several bike rack options that will allow you to carry your beach cruiser on your 2006 Honda Accord. Beach Cruisers are typically larger and heavier bikes from a standard adult road bike so my recommendation for you would be to use a hitch mounted bike rack like the Kuat Beta Bike Rack, # B202-114. This bike rack has a weight capacity of 80 lbs and has many useful features such as anti-sway cradles, anti-wobble shank and a tilting design allowing easy access to the trunk of your...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Class I Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on a 2005 Honda Accord Coupe
  • Take a look at the picture I have included. If the receiver on the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24787 on your 2005 Honda Accord has that tab behind the hitch pin hole then the Class II ball mount # C45014 will not fit. But you can use # C45025 which has the same rise and is Class I compatible. Clearing the rear bumper should not be an issue. Ball mount # C45025 measures 11-1/4 inches long from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. For a compatible 1-7/8 inch ball...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2003 Honda Accord EX 4-Door Sedan for Use with Out-Sider ASL-250 Lift
  • All of the hitch receivers offered for your 2003 Honda Accord are the 1-1/4-inch size and rated as Class I hitches. Class I hitches are considered suitable for light-duty use, such as with 2-bike racks, small cargo baskets and for light towing applications. The 142-lb Out-Sider ASL-250 Platform Lift is intended for use with 2-inch Class II or Class III receivers and so is not compatible with the 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches available for your Accord. You cannot use a hitch adapter in...

I attached an install video for you to check out as well. 2 inch hitches are only used on larger vehicles that can have higher towing capacities like SUVs and trucks. This hitch will do well to carry a bike rack though. If you need a bike rack I would recommend the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670. This is a very popular bike rack that we carry...

  • Class I Hitch Compatibility with Bike Carriers

However, this hitch will not accept a 2-inch hitch bike rack, only a 1-1/4-inch rack that is rated for a Class I hitch. I linked an installation video for you showing how the hitch installs. Light-duty Class I hitches can only handle the weight of 2 bikes and can only be used with a Class I-rated bike rack. You can see our range of Class I racks on the linked page. We...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2005 Honda Accord
  • I did some research on both your 2013 Hyundai Elantra Sedan and 2005 Honda Accord. You are correct that towing with your older 2005 Accord will be the better option, primarily because of its V6 engine. According to the online owner's manual for your 2013 Hyundai Elantra, this vehicle is actually not designed to tow any size trailer and Hyundai does not recommend doing this. Your 2005 Accord, on the other hand, is able to tow a light trailer up to 1,000 pounds. Since you will be...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2007 Honda Accord
  • For your 2007 Honda Accord, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24787 for a couple of reasons. First, unlike the Curt hitches that are also confirmed to fit this vehicle, installing the Draw-Tite Trailer HItch will not require any drilling, as it will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame. Additionally, Curt requires the use of stabilizing straps like # 18050 for non-trailer loads like a bike rack or cargo carrier. Draw-Tite does not have this same requirement,...

  • Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 3592 Recommendation for a 2007 Honda Accord
  • Yes, the Draw-Tite Hitch, part # 24787, fit your 2007 Honda Accord. A Class II drawbar will not fit into a Class I hitch, the reason for this is because Class I hitches have a notch on them that only Class I accessories are capable of accommodating. The reason for this is to prevent the Class I hitch from being overloaded by Class II hitches. I attached an FAQ article on ball mounts below for you to check out also. With this hitch you would want to get a Draw-Tite Ball Mount, part...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2005 Honda Accord and Draw-Tite Hitch 24787
  • The 2005 Honda Accord would not come standard with a trailer wiring harness. In addition to the 24787 hitch, you will need a few more items to complete the towing setup. First, you will need a ball mount. Ball mounts are inserted and pinned into the hitch and provide the platform for the hitch ball. The proper ball mount for your 2005 Honda Accord with the hitch you were looking at is part # 3592. Check the trailer you will be towing and find out what ball size you need. Make sure the...

  • Class I Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2009 Toyota Matrix
  • The reason your hitch on your 2009 Toyota Matrix has a dimple is because all Class I hitches feature this dimple. And your Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4 inch, part # 24812, is a Class I hitch. The reason your bike rack shank does not have a dimple in it is because it is a Class II hitch accessory and is designed to only be used on Class II hitches. The dimple is a safety feature that is installed onto Class I hitches to prevent Class II accessories...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for Trunk Access on a 2004 Honda Accord Coupe
  • There are many bike rack options that allow you to access your trunk without removing the rack from your vehicle, but these rack options are hitch-mounted. Unfortunately, trunk mounted racks are designed to be removed prior to opening your trunk. If you open the rear hatch of your vehicle with a trunk mounted rack attached, you risk damaging your vehicle. If you're looking for a trunk mounted bike rack and need to remove/install the rack frequently for trunk access, I would recommend...

We just haven't had one in for test fits. I can tell you though that if stability is the main issue, I do not recommend a trunk mount bike rack. But if you were to use one, the best option is going to be the Raceway, # TH9001PRO. I own this rack myself and it is the most stable of any of the trunk mount bike racks we carry....

  • Trailer Hitch for Carrying a Bike Rack on a 2005 Honda Accord Coupe
  • For your 2005 Honda Accord, I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24787. This is a Class I, 1-1/4 inch receiver opening hitch with 2,000 pounds of gross trailer weight capacity, and between 200 and 300 pounds of tongue weight capacity. All of the hitches available for your vehicle are Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitches. This limits the bike racks you can attach to those that will fit in a Class I, 1-1/4 inch receiver hitch.

I have attached a generic help article for you on this exact process if needed. The power wire as you mentioned prevents the trailer lights drawing power from the vehicle's taillight circuits.

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 2004 Honda Accord Coupe That is Least Likely to Scratch Vehicle
  • Any time you have a piece of equipment that's in direct contact with a painted surface on your vehicle, the possibility exists that the vehicle could get scratched. The important consideration is that you can greatly minimize the risk by ensuring that the surfaces of the rack and vehicle that touch each other are perfectly clean and free of grit. A coat of quality car wax on the vehicle surface can offer protection to the vehicle finish. It's also very important that the rack be set up...

  • Will Trailer Hitch Adapter on 2004 Honda Accord Allow Use of Motorcycle Dolly
  • The use of an adapter such as the Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HTAD will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on your 2004 Honda Accord by 50 percent. With a Class I hitch like the Draw-Tite # 24787 on your '04 Accord with a 200 lb tongue weight capacity, the use of an adapter reduces it to 100 lbs. A 60 lb dolly and 500 lb scooter will exceed the tongue weight capacity and is not something I recommend doing.
