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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 Honda Accord - Draw-Tite

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2009 Honda Accord, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24899.This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. As you can see, the cross tube is visible. However, it's not a large cross tube, so it's not overpowering the look of the vehicle. It's gonna be a Class I, it's gonna be 1 1/4 inch X 1 1/4 inch. Your hitch pinhole, it's gonna be a half inch in diameter. It's gonna have a ring-style safety chain loop.

You can see it gives you plenty of room for different sized safety chain hooks. As you can see, it's nice and tucked underneath the bumper facial, so you're not gonna have to worry about hitting your legs or your shins on it when loading and unloading the vehicle.Now, you're gonna have a 200-pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. You're gonna a 2000-pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included. Now, I do recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight, and you're gonna wanna pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.This is gonna be a very simple install. It comes with all the necessary hardware.

It's gonna use the existing holes in the frame, however, I do recommend getting an extra set of hands to lift the hitch into place.Now, with this being a Class I hitch, you wanna make sure you're using Class I accessories only, like your smaller cargo carriers or bike racks. Even with your hitch being tucked in, it still gives you plenty of room for your hitch mount accessories.Now, let's give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost part of the bumper will be about four inches. From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube will be about 11 inches. Now, it's a good idea to get a raised shank for better ground clearance.Now, let's who you how to get this installed.

First thing we need to do to start our installation, we need to lower our exhaust. What we're gonna do is, we're gonna take a safety strap and you can hang it anywhere. I either like to do it on the springs, or anywhere like, say, this bar here. You just wanna make sure that these exhaust is not gonna hang on the piping up here. It's gonna put too much pressure on it.Next, we're gonna have four exhaust hangers.

We're gonna have two on each side. We're gonna have one here in the front, and then we're gonna have one right behind the muffler. That's gonna be on both sides of the vehicle. We're gonna spray them down with some lubrication, and we'll take a pry bar and just pull off the hangers like this. You're gonna do that same thing with the three remaining ones. Once you have your hangers off, we're lower it just enough to get up inside to remove our heat shields. We're gonna use a 10 millimeter socket. Then we're gonna do that same thing on the other side of the vehicle.Next thing we're gonna do is, we need to take our spacer block and make sure it's gonna fit through the hole. If you can see that it's not going to, you can use a file, or I'm gonna use a file on a drill bit. We just need to open this hole enough to get this through in the head of the bolt. Get that through; get our bolt through. We're gonna do that same thing on the other side of the vehicle. Once you have the hole opened up to where you need it, next you're gonna take a little bit of spray paint. You wanna spray that bit of metal there to help keep it from corroding or rusting, and then we're gonna repeat that process on the other side of the vehicle.Next, we're gonna take one of our two pull wires. We're gonna go through this very rearmost hole with our spring end. We want our spring end to come out this end, or this hole. So, we did that. We take our spacer block and push it up into the hole, and we're gonna take our bolt. Now we're gonna thread it onto the spring end of our pull wire and then push it up into the thing, and then pull it out like this. We're gonna do the same thing on the other side.Next, we wanna take this U-bolt and we're gonna put it over our tow hook right here, like this. Now, with an extra set of hands, we'll get our hitch into place. We're gonna feed our pull wires through the holes, push it up into place, remove the wire. You want a conical tooth washer, and make sure the teeth are facing up toward the hitch. We're gonna file that with the nut. Then, we're gonna do the same thing on this side. We're gonna do the same thing here in the center. Smaller conical tooth washer, I'll file it with my nut.Next, we'll tighten all of our hardware. I'll be using an 11/16 socket. When you do these two in the center, I suggest doing them a little bit at a time each side, so that they go up evenly.Next, we'll torque all of our hardware to the specifications in the instructions.Now, we can put our heat shields back in place. You may have some minimal trimming or bending you may need to do. You can see here, we're not gonna be putting this bolt back in because we have our bolt for our hitch. So, we're gonna need to trim this edge right here where it's hitting the hitch so that we can get this bolt in, this bolt, and our top one back here in. So, I'm just gonna trim a little bit off this edge. I'm just gonna use some tin snips. I'm gonna go right straight across right here, and then straight up right here. Once you have your heat shield trimmed or bent, go ahead and put your bolts back in place, and you're gonna repeat that on the other side of the vehicle.Next, we'll put out exhaust back in place. Again, we're gonna start by spraying down our hangers. If you have them sprayed down, you should just be able to take the hanger and slide it right onto the pin. Once you have those in place, you can remove your safety strap.And that'll do it for a look at the installation on a Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24899, on our 2009 Honda Accord.

Fairly straight forward. With the right tools (including tin snips) its a two hour job. I used a air grinder which made the hole widening task a breeze. But you could also just grind down an edge on the rectangular carriage bolt piece to make it fit the hole. Love the wire feeder thing - nice! 634125

Great product. eTrailer.com is the true winner, with the search capabilities, instructions, and especially the videos is what makes the product nice.

A challenging DIY install on 2017 Accord. The U-bolt spacing was not wide enough to fit over the tow ring. Also spacer bars were too wide and long to fit in access holes to support bolts in the rails. Finally extensive cutting/modification of the drip sheet to accomodate the tow rack frame and flanges. Overall, it took 2 people about 7 hrs to install. 627949

experience was great - fit not so much. The holes were too small for the bolts and the frame mount to fit into the holes. This was a GIANT PAIN TO open these holes up. I had to grind the carriage bolt holder peice and grind the frame hole opening. Why not just make the holder a little smaller to fit? Come-on-man... There was nothing in there about having to remove the plastic shield under the center of the spare tire area and not reinstall it? Just overall bad instructions and even the video did not mention these things. Product is good, shipping good, price good. 518982

The fit was great! I actually 'supervised' while my daughter installed the Hitch on our '08 Accord. Have had no problems at all with the hitch 239678



- 24899
by:

It worked for me. My only problem was enlarging the feedthrough holes enough for the carriage bolt plates to fit through. I did the "pry with wrench" method rather than fileing. It took me several tries on each side to get the holes wide enough for the plates to slide in and turn the corner. Very good instructions and the installation looks good. I'm too lazy to take a picture but I'll tell anyone I'd recommend this kit. 11501

It fits and looks really good. Our 2008 Accord took about 2 hours to install. I read where I had to lower the exhaust system but must've missed the part that mentioned I had to take a heat shield off and then cut a piece on it off to install the hitch. I loved the little wire tools that pull the bolts through the frame. Someone had their thinking cap on when they came up with that. All in all I'm very happy with my purchase but I would advise that the 3/4 hour to install this must be someone who has it up on a rack. 357328

cleaner look hidin a lot better than models for previous accords. better clearance from the bumper itself. mounting wise its simple as long as you know how to thread a needle on a larger scale. slight modification to the heat shield(s) (2 for v6 model) and by modification i mean a pair of tin snips and a 4 cuts to bend a .5 inch piece of shielding away (watch the video itll show you). it took me roughly 1 hour to complete in a driveway no jack and the only injury sustained was during removal of the exhaust hangers (slipped and hit the muffler tip which btw is fairly sharp). 147900

Received product in 5 business days. I am located on the West Coast and paid extra for 3-5 day shipping. Had my father and son install on my 2016 Honda Accord Touring Sedan. Took them 2 1/2hrs. May be quicker for others since it was a learning experience for my son. Had to do small modification to the carriage bolt plates to allow them to fit through the hole in the frame. Small amount of grinding. I am using this with a Yakima bike rack. First trip did great. Very happy with the look on my vehicle, and my purchase. Highly recommend it. 621759


Comments
The installation instructions the require the enlargement of the access hole using a wrench or a file. Their preference is to enlarge the access hole on the frame vs. grinding down the spacers.

Comparison Review Draw-Tite or Drawtite 24899 and Curt 11681 hitches for 2013 Honda Accord 4-dr. Due to a manufacturing defect on the first hitch I installed, I had the pleasure of installing both of these hitches in the past 3 weeks on my Accord. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to write this review. Mounting hardware: Draw-Tite came with SAE Grade 5 carriage bolts, Curt came with stronger Grade 8 carriage bolts and nuts. Apparent strength of the hitch: reviews of the Curt state that a strap is needed to stabilize bike racks, Draw-Tite does not incl. this warranty condition. However, the Curt’s receiver channel has a welded collar that reinforces the square tube that is the business end of the receiver, the Draw-Tite does not. I suspect that Curt’s collar makes the receiver’s square tube less likely to split due to the high leverage of a bike rack. Ease of Installation: Both hitches require a “spacer” or block that fits into the Accord’s rails with the carriage bolts. The width of the Draw-Tite’s spacer required the entrance hole to be enlarged by drilling, filing, or prying open the hole on my brand new Accord, the Curt’s spacer is sized so that it just slips in the existing hole without modification. Appearance: Both reveal about the same amount, the rounded cross section of the Curt tubing results in a more attractive look. Ground Clearance: When installed, the Curt hitch has better ground clearance that the Draw-Tite. Paint finish: the same for both. Manufacturing Quality Control: The sample of Draw-Tite (bearing a “Made in Mexico” sticker) I installed was defective. Drawbars had to be pounded in by sledge hammer and awkwardly pounded out by same, ruining the finish on the drawbar. Apparently, the receiver channel was deformed when the manufacturer “punched” the holes in the receiver channel that the drawbar pin fits through. Once the drawbar was pounded in, a welded button or stop within the channel prevented the drawbar from going in deep enough so that the drawbar holes and receiver channel holes lined up. Draw-Tite Customer Service acknowledged the defect and said that they had had several calls on this, were manufacturing new ones, orders were on backorder and I’d have to work with the place I bought the hitch for replacement. E-Trailer Customer service was superb, they contacted Draw-Tite, confirmed backorder status, shipped me the slightly more expensive Curt at no extra charge, provided pre-paid return shipping label for the defective Draw-Tite. The sample from Curt installed and worked perfectly. Thorough this experience with Draw-Tite, I had the pleasure of spending the time installing a hitch twice on the same car and gathering the data to write this review. You have the benefit of reading this comparison review. 89392

Just a quick note, the button or stop is intended to be present on Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitches. That stop will prevent the use of Class II Only designed ball mounts, carriers and racks.

Just recently purchased a hitch for my 2013 honda accord cpe v6 and was very satisfied. Delivery was super fast. Product is top quality. Easy to install. Did it all by myself. Took about a good 1hour from start to finish. Video on the site was very helpful for installation. Will post pictures soon. 83203

Hey Mark. I have a 2013 coupe. I was wondering why you chose this hitch over the Curt hitch. I cant decide between the two but this one looks good on your car.

I just installed this hitch on my 2013 Honda Accord. The kit from etrailer contained all of the needed parts. The hitch fits perfectly, is secure and looks great. Etrailer did a great job of processing my order and George followed up to make sure that I had everything I needed. I installed this hitch so that I could mount my bike rack on my car. The rack was quite tight when I inserted it into the receiver which should help to stabilize the installation but I had to lubricate the parts to install it. I was able to easily remove the rack. Also, the plate above the receiver and the loops below make for a very small area in which to insert a wrench to tighten the rack. I could not use the tool that came with the rack and had to use a deep socket instead. Not a big deal. All in all I am quite satisfied with the hitch and with etrailer. 428246

I ordered the Draw-Tite sport trailer hitch for my 2012 Acura TSX Special Edition I called Andrea first to ask if the hitch would fit my model. She called Draw-Tite and Curt other companies were not sure if I would have to modify the lower rear valance. I took a chance and ordered it anyway Andrea was very helpful. Needless to say everything fit fine no modifications were necessary and it does not look bad at all. Just follow the installation videos on etrailer.com and it bolts up easy. 192263

Hi Steve, yes I did have to trim the plastic black center panel and the muffler heat shields as shown in the video. I think I may have chose the wrong words when I said no modifications. No modifications referred to the rear lower section of the bumperground effects on the Special Edition.There was uncertainty when I was looking for a trailer hitch if I would have to trim or cut the rear bumper ground effects. You do not have to trim the bumper the hitch fits fine.

Great product. It took me and my son 5 hours to install. Get a long ratchet to get the screws out of the plastic cover underneath. Heat shield is a bit if a pain but just keep trimming it till it fits. The video says to us a cargo stap to hold the muffler up. We used a car jack. Video said to leave the plastic cover off after installation. I figured the manufacturer put it there for a reason. I used tin snips to trim it up. Plastic pins can't be used again so we used cable ties. Everything fits perfectly. 433167

Not too hard a job. Aside from having road grit fall in my eyes while on my back, the most difficult task was reattaching the rubber muffler mount. Great looking installation, and very fast service. I've used etrailer for 3 hitches and have always been happy with the products and service. 551854

I purchased the Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting, Thule Bike Adapter Bar, trailer hitch receiver and Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device for my 2012 Acura TL to take my mountain bike and my son's bike camping over the summer. I was a little nervous using it for the first time, especially on a 3.5 hour drive every other summer, but the equipment functioned flawlessly! I even received a comment regarding how sturdy the equipment is and that it does not move a lot like other bike racks they have seen. I did have an issue with the stinger, but etrailer resolved my problem with absolutely no issue what-so-ever. I'm very happy with the products I purchased and even more happy with the purchase experience and interaction I had with etrailer and its staff. 703844

Great product, mostly easy for a DIY, weekend-warrior mechanic. The youtube video assistance was great from e-trailer. Be careful of the size of the unibody hole size, as this may not be large enough for the metal/rectangular bolt holder. Unless you find a very easy solution like drilling a larger hole from the trunk compartment, invest in the tool they highlight in the video to pull the bolt thru the 12+ inches of unibody to the mounting hole. 700178

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Draw Tite Hitch Installed on 2011 Honda Accord Sedan
    For Class I hitches like the Draw Tite part # 24899 that you mentioned which fits your 2011 Honda Accord you have to go with the required ball mount by the manufacturer, which in this case is the # 3593 which has to be used in the rise position. Then for hitch balls you'd want the part # 19258 for a 2 inch ball or the part # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # 118420 which is a custom fit and comes with a very reliable converter box.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Honda Accord Coupe
    The main advantages to a platform bike rack would be that the bikes are very easy to load and unload, the bikes are very secure (at the wheels and frame), the bikes will not be touching, you will be less likely to have the cables of your bike rub on the frame of your bike. The main advantage that hanging racks have over platform racks is weight. If you plan on removing the bike rack frequently a hanging bike rack might be a good choice.

To do so you would need to start with a trailer hitch, and I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24899 which has a 1-1/4" receiver and is a bolt-on installation so there will be no drilling into your Accord's frame; I have linked a video showing an install of this hitch on a '16 Accord for you to take a look at.

  • Installation Instructions for Draw-Tite Hitch 24899 & Local Installer Option
    Draw-Tite hitch # 24899 that fits the coupe and sedan (and hybrid) versions of the 2016 Honda Accord is a bolt-in installation that requires no drilling. Install time for a novice would be around an hour and a half. Written instructions and a video are linked for your reference if you care to consider a DIY installation as many of our customers do.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid
    As you referenced in your question, both the Draw-Tite # 24899 and Curt # C11681 Class I Trailer Hitches are confirmed to fit your 2015 Honda Accord. As you also mentioned, Curt requires that with their Class I and II trailer hitches, a stabilizing strap like # 18050 be used with any non-trailer loads such as bike racks and cargo carriers. This is not an indication of the hitch's strength or stability, but simply an extra precaution Curt takes to further support the hitch. Both...

  • Why Does Curt Class I Hitch # C11681 Require Stabilization Strap But the Draw-Tite # 24899 Does Not
    Curt does require that in order to maintain the limited lifetime warranty coverage on their Class I trailer hitch receivers a stabilizing strap must be used. This precaution does not indicate any weakness in the Curt hitch as compared to the Draw-Tite or Hidden-Hitch models. All are built to essentially identical standards. Curt simply chooses to be extra cautious by requiring use of the strap, which is a very good idea with any of the available hitches. Curt strap # 18050 is a cost-effective...

  • Towing Capacity of a 2013 Honda Accord Touring
    You are correct that the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24899 which is a fit for your 2013 Honda Accord Touring has a 2,000 lb gross trailer weight (GTW) capacity. However, the vehicle only has a 1,000 lb gross trailer weight (GTW) capacity and since this is the lowest rated component in the system, it will need to be the figure you abide by. Therefore, I cannot recommend you use this vehicle to tow a 2,500 lb vehicle even with a tow dolly. If you choose to do so...

  • 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.

  • Why Wont the Yakima HoldUp Fit a Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Honda Accord
    The problem is that the hitch you have is a Class I hitch, probably made by Reese, Draw-Tite, or Hidden Hitch. Those hitches have a stop punched into the shank to prevent the use of Class II accessories from being used. It is meant to prevent someone from overloading a Class I hitch. The Yakima HoldUp for 1-1/4 inch hitches, # Y02445, is for Class II hitches that do not have that stop. In order to use that rack you would have to remove that stop. However doing so will void the hitch...

  • Curt and Draw Tite Hitch Comparison for 2016 Honda Accord Touring V6
    All of the hitches we offer for the 2016 Honda Accord are going to give you the same amount of ground clearance. When we measured where the hitches sat in relation to the ground for both the Curt # C11681 and Draw Tite # 24899 we found that they had almost identical dimensions. If it were me I would go with the Draw Tite though since it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when using a non-supported load like a bike rack. The most popular bike rack we carry...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2008 Honda Accord
    For your 2008 Honda Accord, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch # 24899. This Class I hitch is confirmed to fit your Accord and will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame for a no-drill installation. I recommend the Draw-Tite model over the Curt alternatives, because unlike Curt, Draw-Tite does not require the use of additional stabilizing straps for non-trailer loads like bike racks and cargo carriers. I have attached an installation video on your 2008...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2013 Honda Accord
    Since you plan on using the hitch for bikes I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24899. First, if you were to use a Curt hitch they require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, when using the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier. Draw-Tite does not have this requirement. The recommended ball mount, pin, and clip is # 3593. And for a ball I recommend # 19256 for a 1-7/8 or # 19258 for a 2 inch. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier...

  • Which Hitch Sticks Out the Most on a 2017 Honda Accord
    For your 2017 Honda Accord, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11681 would give you the greatest extension. When we installed this hitch on a 2015 Honda Accord we found that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the bumper is 2-3/4". When we installed the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24899 on a 2017 Honda Accord we found that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the bumper is 3".

  • Trailer Hitch That Fits a 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid
    The hitch I recommend that fits a 2017 Honda Accord hybrid is the Draw-Tite # 24899 because the manufacturer does not require the use of stabilizing straps with your bike rack like the Curt hitch does. This hitch has a 1-1/4 inch receiver and will bolt on to your Accord hybrid. Note that this hitch is going to require the trimming of the underbody panel on your Accord hybrid. I've added a link to a video of this hitch being installed on a '17 Accord as well as a link to our selection...

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch for 2009 Honda Accord to Allow Use of 2-inch Hitch Bike Rack
    The size and class of hitch available for your 2009 Honda Accord is a 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch such as Curt # C11085 and Draw-Tite # 24899. No 2-inch hitches are made for your car because its frame is not strong enough for the weight ratings of a 2-inch Class III hitch. As you noted, there are adapters like the Brophy # HTAD and # HT5R that fit your 1-1/4-inch hitch and provide a 2-inch receiver opening for the 2-inch accessory. These are both about 7-inches long, a good bit shorter...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack for 2014 Honda Accord
    For lighter duty vehicles like your 2014 Honda Accord we only have 1-1/4 inch hitches available as the 2 inch hitch size is for larger vehicles. So for your vehicle you need a hitch like the part # 24899 which is a Class I hitch. A better option would be to upgrade your bike rack as it sounds like it only fits 2 inch hitches. 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 guys to name...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid for Bike Rack
    For your 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid the Draw Tite hitch part # 24899 is a confirmed fit. For a bike rack you will be limited to 2 bikes maximum because the hitches for the vehicle are Class I hitches. I recommend going with a light weight bike rack to reduce the stress on the hitch and vehicle. The Kuat Beta, # B202-114, is a great option. It is Class I compatible, holds 2 bikes, and weighs just over 12 pounds. I have linked a video review of this bike rack for you. If you plan on...

  • Compatibility of Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch w/ 2016 Honda Accord Touring Model w/ Dual Exhaust
    The Draw-Tite Class I trailer hitch, part # 24899 is indeed compatible with your 2016 Honda Accord Touring model with dual exhaust. Minor modifications will be necessary to install the hitch. In some cases, the access hole in the frame member might need to be enlarged slightly to allow the installation hardware to be fished through the frame. The heat shields are temporarily removed, then reattached, the shield might need to be bent or trimmed to clear the fasteners. If the vehicle has...

  • Difference Between Hidden Hitch # 60325 and Draw-Tite # 24899 for 2008 Honda Accord 4 Dr.
    The Hidden Hitch # 60325 (no longer available) and Draw-Tite # 24899 are manufactured by the same parent company, Cequent Performance Products. Both hitches will appear identical, will share the same weight ratings, and will install in exactly the same manner. If you were using the hitch as the attachment point for a 2 bike rack or other hitch mounted accessory that is compatible with a Class I receiver, and are not planning on doing any light-duty towing, the Draw-Tite hitch would be...

  • Draw-Tite vs Curt Hitch for a 2013 Honda Accord
    For carrying a bike rack the biggest advantage that the Draw-Tite Hitch # 24899 has over the Curt Hitch # C11681 is that it does not require the use of a stabilizing strap when carrying a non-supported load such as a bike rack. If you went with the Curt hitch you would also need a Curt Stabilizing Strap # 18050 to secure the rack. I attached a video on how this is done, but basically you will need to attach the strap to the rack and then run the other end of it to the edge of your trunk...

  • Why are Stabilization Straps Required for Non-Trailer Loads on Some Curt Trailer Hitches
    Curt requires that any of their hitches that are NOT rated for weight distribution use a stabilization strap # 18050 for non-trailer loads. This is to be in compliance with their warranty requirements. The strap reduces some of the stress on the hitch and where it is attached on the vehicle.

  • Which Hitch to Carry Bike Rack On 2013 Honda Accord 4-Door
    Of the available hitches for your 2013 Honda Accord, I believe that the Curt Class I Receiver, part # C11681 would provide the best appearance. The cross tube is constructed of tubular powder coated steel, which in many peoples opinion looks better than the square tubing of the Draw-Tite or Hidden Hitch models. The tubing bends up and back a few inches to either side of the receiver opening, which means that the entire cross tube is not visible from the rear. I have provided a photo...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2016 Honda Accord Sport
    For the 2016 Honda Accord Sport 4-door sedan we do offer 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches from both Curt and Draw-Tite. Both hitches are quality items and their installation is the same since they mount in the exact same spot on the car's frame. But the one I suggest is the Draw-Tite # 24899 because it does not have the requirement to use a stabilizing strap # 18050 as the Curt does, for loads like bike racks and cargo carriers. If you plan to tow you'll also need a ball mount, hitch ball...
