Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.



Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.


In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.


etrailer.com Technical Support

At etrailer.com we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Acura TSX - Draw-Tite

On this 2012 Acura TSX, we're going to review and install part number 24899. This is a Class I Receiver Hitch from Draw-Tite. This is what the hitch looks like when it's installed on the TSX. You can see at first glance it does fit underneath the bumper so you do see most of the hitch. However, it's got a kind of a cool angled shape to it so it goes back underneath and behind the bumper to its attachment points. This is our 1 1/4" opening up front right here and it uses a 1/2" diameter hitch pin or your favorite locking pin.

Underneath here, we have our loop for our safety chains. This will fit a variety of different styles of chains out there. Has a sturdy plate that goes over the top that connects our receiver opening to the body of our hitch. Also, on the very bottom, it has a very stout attachment point where it goes down to the factory tie down point on our vehicle. It uses a simple U-bolt right there and as the hitch goes up towards the body work, it goes up and over exhaust and it does require some trimming on the heat shield. Couple of other details is that our hitch is rated for 200 pounds of tongue weight which pulls down on the hitch and 2000 pounds of pulling weight.

Always double check your owner's manual or your manufacturer to make sure that your vehicle can carry these kinds of weights. Next, we'll go ahead and give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories, such as a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be about 2". From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 11 1/4". Next we'll go ahead and show you how we installed the hitch.

To start off, we'll go ahead and lower the exhaust. I'm going to use a simple cam buckle strap to help support the exhaust after I lower it. This can be any kind of strap or a shock cord or anything like that just to help support it or you could put something underneath of it and support it as well. We'll go ahead and spray down the rubber hangers with some lubricant and pry them off. There will be two for each muffler. There's one up here and there will be one behind it.

Behind the muffler, right next to the wheel, is your other hanger right here. We'll do the same thing. We'll spray it down and pry it off. That was our passenger's side. We'll repeat the same process over on our driver's side. I'll use my cam buckle strap to help lower it and that will give us some working room. Further up on the exhaust, about halfway to the engine, there's a couple more hangers you could remove to get yourself a lot more room. However, you want to be careful, really careful at this point as you lower it though. Next up, we need to remove a heat shield. We'll remove these 3 first and we'll use a 10 mm socket to remove the bolts. One last one in the corner here. Our model is dual exhaust, so we'll go ahead and repeat the same process on the other side. Next, we need to check our access hole for our hardware. To check it, we'll make sure our bolt head will go through it because we have this bolt and this block that needs to be installed inside the frame. Some vehicles, we'll be able to put this block in. Of course, ours won't. So we need to file this down or bend it to make sure we can get our block inside. File it down and then check it with your block until you get it to go inside the frame. If you have access, a high speed rotary bit will work just as well. This hole right here will be an attachment point for our hitch, so we'll take the provided bolt leader that comes with kit, run it through that hole and out the access hole. We'll take our block, thread it through and push it up into your frame. There it goes. It kind of bottoms out 00:04:24 the top so you have to wiggle it around to make it fit. Carriage bolt that we'll thread onto our bolt leader. Push everything and pull it out the hole. You can leave this bolt leader on or off, personal preference. If you leave it on and you accidentally push the bolt back in, you can pull it back out when you put the hitch up. We'll repeat the same process over on the driver's side. Our last attachment point will be on the toe hook here, or tie down point. We'll install the U-bolt just like that. Now with an extra set of hands we'll go ahead and put the hitch up. We'll line up our bolts as well as one of the slots on the hitch. There's two sets of slots, so you've kind of got to eye it up first before you put it all the way up in there. There we go. Now we install our hardware. It will be a conical tooth washer and a nut. You want to make sure that the teeth on the washer always face towards the hitch. Now we'll work with our U-bolt, another conical tooth washer and a nut. With all our hardware loosely installed, now we can go ahead and tighten it down and torque it down as specified in the instructions. We'll go ahead and tighten them down. The U-bolts will use an 11/16ths socket and we want to tighten it down as evenly as possible. We'll use the same socket, 11/16ths, on this hardware here. Now let's go ahead and torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. Next up, we'll go ahead and put our heat shields into place. The hitch is going to interfere with it of course so let's do some trimming. Basically try to hold it up as close as you can to the original point and make some marks on it to make sure it clears the hitch. This gives a rough idea of what we need to cut out. We can probably use some preexisting lines on here to go by and make our cuts for good. Let's go ahead and use some tin snips to cut it out. You may have to do a couple of extra test fits to make sure it sits up there and you can reinstall all the fasteners. Heat shield back in place. That will do it for our passenger's side. One more time on the driver's side. With the heat shields reinstalled, we'll go ahead and put the exhaust back up and reconnect it with the rubber hangers. With the exhaust reinstalled, we'll go ahead and take the straps down and we are finished. That will finish it for part number 24899, the Draw-Tite Class I 1 1/4" Receiver Hitch on our 2012 Acura TSX.

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

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

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

Install was a bit more involved than I expected because of the need to snake hardware down the chassis channel. I had to ream out some holes and trim heat shields. Very solid well made product and its on there very solid as well. 545549

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

The hitch arrived fairly quickly and in good shape. The directions were good. I have to admit I was very skeptical of the wire gadget that they supplied to fish the mounting bolts into the frame. It worked amazingly well. Had a little trouble getting the plastic trim piece on the underside of the car back on. But there's really nothing to be done that would make it easier. I'd recommend this hitch to friends. 211922

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

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

I bought a used 2009 Honda Accord V6 last Saturday. First thing I did was to email my insurance adjuster for coverage. The second thing I did was get on etrailer.com to order the trailer hitch and light kit for the car. Within minutes of placing my order, I received an email saying to notify the order is received and will get another email within 48 hrs to notify me when the product has shipped. Within 90 mins I was notified my order is on the way as a special favor for shopping etrailer. Got my order on time an exactly how it should be. Superior customer service, Client driven! Precisely the reason this is the fourth hitch I have order from you guys, along with numerous trailer parts. Keep up the great work! 122688

I don't know that I've had better service than at etrailer.com. Great customer service! Fast shipping! Couldn't have been a better experience. As for the trailer hitch receiver, it was a very quick install. The video etrailer.com has walks you through everything. I did have to slightly modify the shield under the van which you'll have to remove. I wanted to put it back on but that was pretty easy. The hitch itself looks good, isn't too low to the ground, and does nicely for the bike rack I also ordered from etrailer.com. 224998

2012 Acura TSX Special Edition


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


Comments

I have a 2012 TSX SE as well. Did you have to modify the black plastic center panel and the heat shields as shown in the video?Thanks Gman.

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.

Not a difficult installation If you are careful, you can install this in an hour, if not, it could take you two to three hours. A few tips: Use a Dremel to create the opening for the spacer and make it bigger than it needs to be so the spacer doesn't bind when you try to pull it through. Tie a piece of string through the hole in the spacer and test fit the spacer through the hole in the frame before you attempt to feed the wire through the frame. Once the spacer gets inside the frame rail, it is tough to get it back over the opening and even tougher to get the wire through the hole. If you have to force the spacer, you haven't enlarged the opening enough. The helicoil on the end of the wire is great but don't pull on it too hard or you will unravel the coil. Thank goodness they give you two. Leave the wire attached to the bolt until you have the hitch positioned snugly against the frame rails. Attach the u-bolt and hand-tighten the bolts to hold it in place. A couple of jack stands come in handy to keep it snug and level while you're trying to manipulate the nuts onto the frame rail bolts. You'll have to hold the bolt with one hand while you remove the helicoil and thread the nuts on the bolts. Don't let go of the bolts! Trimming the heat shield was easy but it took three tries to get it to clear the vertical plate on the passenger side of the hitch. It looks great, doesn't stick out like other hitches I've seen. It really is a 'hidden hitch"! 3450

Just got the hitch and plug in light harness installed. Everything fit great. Really happy with the product. Only issue I had was one of the U bolts were the wrong size. I was given 3 bolts for the frame instead of 2 and 2. Luckily I had a bolt that fit sitting near by. But other than that I am extremely happy with the product. Perfect setup with my 5x8 trailer for hauling my four wheeler and motorcycle. 482457

2010 Acura TL


2010 acura TL..non-awd I have installed a few of these on different cars and the 45min estimeated install time is way off..NO.. more like 2-3 hrs install time. I have a new TL and you must remove both side of the exhaust completely and to enlarge the hole to insert the crossbar for the bolt into the frame a file will not do it. It is strengthened steel part of the car and i had to use a power drill with a large metal bit to shave a small bit away to hammer the bar inside but once inside it did work fishing it and the bolt threw with the wire supplied. I was skeptical but it worked great. The hitch is hidden very well. You also must remove a plastic under tray panel and it will not go back on with the hitch in place. The trimming of the exhaust heat shields was easy though. 3311

Good product overall. I chose to grind down the rectangular "washers" rather than compromise the factory primer of the car. I only had to grind them down about 1/32". Why can't they be manufactured to go in the hole right from the factory without modifying the car frame or the washer???? Interaction with e-trailer was good. Nice personal touch having Patrick B. correspond and follow up. Shipping packaging probably the best I've ever seen. Simple and effective. 140735


Comments

Yep...Check out the Curt 11681. The Curt I installed had rectangular washers sized to slipped right in without enlarging the holes in my new Honda Accord 2013. Grinding the washer removes the galvanizing zinc rust resistance, enlarging the holes removes the paint and primer.

2013 Honda Accord


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

Good looking product (for something that goes under your car). Easy install. I had to make the holes just a bit wider on the car frame to fit the plates through the wholes. That took the longest time. Other than that, pretty easy install. Trust me! I have a hard time changing a light bulb and this was relatively pain free. I did it all alone! and it took me about 1 hour. I've been using it to carry my bike rack and so far so good. Have yet to tow anything with it. I will however be towing my motorcycle this weekend. We'll see how it handles then. You can barely see it on a Honda Accord 2009. The people at etrailer were very professional, fast delivery, and are very involve in customer satisfaction. I would definitely buy from them again 309430

Installed in about 1 1/2 but I was able to pu the under plastic guard back. What I did was on the left side where the it mounts I cut a 4 by 8 square out and then mounted it back in place. Then I mounted the etrailer hitch. 340931

Your website was first rate. After viewing the installation video one time. I installed the trailer hitch a week later when it arrived without reading the instructions. The video was exactly how the installation actually was (type car / equipment). The road test of actual type bicycle rack to hitch video gives a great insight to the expected movement during ruff / bumpy drives and it gave me added confidence that was buying capable equipment. Most of all when I called in my ordered your company rep (was that you?) referred me to the lower price hitch because I was transporting bicycles not towing a trailer as she discerned .....!saved me $[..]!....I like that. See my attached images. 248415

As stated in directions, access holes in car frame too small to get lock plates thru: this takes a little time to file to open enough to complete installation. That is the biggest hassle,rest of install very straight forward. Looks good ,well hidden. Took about two hours.Hitch arrived in two days with free shipping-Well Done etrailer! 106007

Yep...Check out the Curt 11681. The Curt I installed had lock plates rectangular washers sized to slipped right in without enlarging the holes in my new Honda Accord 2013. Grinding the washer removes the galvanizing zinc rust resistance, enlarging the holes removes the paint and primer.

I've used a Draw-Tite hitch for my last car, a 2004 Honda Accord for over 10 years. And it had towed small trailers, and carried my bicycle hitch rack for many years without a single problem, it was also not very hard to install by myself. So when I got my new Accord (a 2014 V6 EX-L Accord) I wanted the same hitch to continue carry my bicycle hitch mount rack. The hitch arrived just as expected, and in same (excellent) build quality as my last hitch. The installation instruction and video seems to be misleading though, as per instruction I need to cut out extra space on access hole to pass through the bolt plate, I did so before the hitch arrived, thinking I can save some time. But only to find out that the hitch arrived with improved (slimmer) bracket that does not require filing of the access hole... Now I need to find a way to seal the scratches and damage I made to prevent the structure from rusting over time, if I know the hitch come with improved bracket plate it would have saved me a lot of trouble. (BTW, the hitch I received was made in July, 2016) Another thing that none of the instruction or video showed is that in order to mount this hitch, I also need to remove the plastic liner on the bottom of the trunk (Hold by two bolts and a few clippers). The liner blocks the hitch from being mounted. Also, In my personal opinion this hitch's square design looks better than the Curt's round design and seems to have a slimmer profile which I like. 295371

Customer service reps gave helpful information when I contacted etrailer by phone. Ordered item and received it four days later. The installation went just like online video suggested it would. Instructions included were clear and all parts were present. It took me about an hour because I did not have all the right tools on hand. It has only been used once since installation, but it held new bike rack and two bikes for its maiden voyage on the highway. 226626

This is a great hitch. The installation on my 2016 Honda went smoothly as described in the directions and the helpful video linked on the website. Installing on this vehicle is a bit tricky due to the way it bolts on, but if you follow the directions it goes on easily. I spent about 1.5 hours on the job. This is my third purchase of a bolt on trailer hitch from etrailer and I have had excellent service and been very happy with the products every time. 524258

The hitch is fine, what i really liked about the company is that the FAQs provided really helpful information about how to attach this particular hitch to a 2017 honda accord hybrid, since honda does not make a specific hitch for the vehicle and discourages drivers from using one due to concerns that adding too much weight will harm the vehicle. The information you provided was useful to the mechanic who installed the hitch. 519181

The hitch fit perfectly. Instruction videos were very helpful. Whole job took about 2 hours, with half of that raising the car. They need a video for the wiring. Not so much the wiring as removing the panels. 517448

I use it on a Honda Accord for a bicycle rack. It went on easily and have had not issues with it. It works good. As a plus, once I got my car stuck in a ditch. A neighbor came over with his tractor and used the hitch to lift the car out of the ditch. 502482

Ordered a trailer hitch for my daughters car. The hitch came within a few days of ordering. I looked at etrailer's installation video for the vehicle. The printed instruction were easy to understand but using the video made the installation real easy. The hitch and installation hardware fit perfectly and no modifications were required. My installation went along without any problems. 498813

Well, its still there and has been very useful as an option to have on my car. Its on a 2008 Honda Accord. I've been using it mainly to add a little cargo carrier. Installation was quick and easy. I was able to do the install by myself with a little help from tow straps. I'm planning on using the hitch to hook up a small trailer to it, hopefully in the near future. 475982

Installed on a 2017 Honda Accord. Everything fit perfectly. I followed the instructions and the video provided on etrailer.com. It took me a little longer considering I didn't use a jack and I was underneath a car with relatively low ground clearance, but it all went together as it should. It will serve its purpose of carrying my bikes on road trips. Thanks for the great price and install video etrailer.com! 468935

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


  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2011 Honda Accord Sedan
  • The hitch we have available for your Accord is a Class I hitch, Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24899. The Draw-Tite does not require using stabilizing straps to retain warranty protection like the Curt hitches, so no worries there. If you'll be towing, you'll also need the # 118420 trailer wiring harness, a ball mount and a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball, part # 19256 or a 2 inch ball # 19258.

  • Installing Draw-Tite Class I Receiver # 24899 on 2013 Honda Accord
  • As you can see by looking at the installation instructions I have linked to, the procedure for installing the # 24899 is quite a bit more involved than that used when you installed the # 60953 on your 2003 Accord. Because the heat shields will need to be bent out of the way to allow access to where the hitch attaches to the frame members, lowering the exhaust will be a necessity. Lowering the exhaust is not terribly difficult, you will need to spray some lubricant like WD-40 on the exhaust...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Honda Accord without Requiring Stabilizer Strap
  • Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a bike rack. It's basically an additional precaution that Curt has for their hitches to help take the shock of a bike rack or cargo carrier out of the setup over bumps. Draw Tite doesn't require the strap so it's why we tend to recommend them more like the part # 24899 for your 2017 Honda Accord. I attached a review video for you to check for the strap as well. I...

  • All of the trailer hitches available for the Accord will position the receiver at approximately the same point at the rear of the vehicle. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24899 will have the advantage, appearance wise, since the cross member of the hitch angles toward the front of the vehicle.
