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 - 2015 Honda Fit - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2015 Honda Fit we're going to review and install the Draw-Tite class one 1-1/4" receiver tube hitch, part number 24920. Now here's what our hitch is going to look like once it's installed. We've got our nice stylish round crosstube design. It brings into our fully welded construction and a nice black powder-coated finish. On either side of our receiver tube is our chain hold down, and our pre-drilled 1/2" pinhole. This receiver tube is a 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" class one.

It's capable of up to 200 pounds of tongue weight and a 2,000 pound tow capacity. Next we'll go ahead and give you a couple measurements to assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 3". From the top of the receiver tube opening down to the ground is 10". This will assist you with selecting accessories such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. We'll now go ahead and show you the minimum tools required for installing the hitch.

We've got our 11/16 socket, a 3" extension just to make it a little easier, our ratchet for tightening down our fasteners, and our torque wrench. Now let's go ahead and show you how to install the hitch. To begin our install we need to go ahead and lower the exhaust. To lower our exhaust we're going to remove the two rubber isolators from the metal hangers on the muffler. To remove the rubber isolators from the metal hangers, we'll first spray each one with a spray lubricant and then use our pry bar our pliers to slide the rubber isolator off of the metal hanger. Now our exhaust muffler will come down and exposes our frame rail and our attachment point.

Here on the driver side we're going to have two attachment points. Starting at the end of the frame rail, a large round hole just like on the passenger side, and then the smaller hole just in front of it. Now we have a total of three attachment point. Each attachment point is going to get a 7/16 carriage bolt. Here on the passenger side we want to make sure we use the shorter of the three carriage bolts. The carriage bolt is 1-1/4" long.

The two 7/16 by 1-1/2" carriage bolts will be used on the driver side. Also going into the frame to create our attachment point with our carriage bolt will be our spacer block. Once in the frame, the carriage bolt will engage the spacer block and create our attachment point. Once our hitch is into position, we'll then secure it with a 7/16 conical tooth washer, the teeth of the washer will face the hitch, and a 7/16 hex nut. Now to get our hardware into the frame we're going to use a 7/16 pull wire or bolt leader that's supplied with the install kit. Using the reverse pull method, we'll take the spacer block and slide it onto the bolt leader. We'll then take the carriage bolt, thread it into the end of the bolt leader, feed it into the frame first. Once the carriage bolt's in, we'll follow it with the block and then use the bolt leader to pull the carriage bolt back down through the block and into position. I'll go ahead and leave the bolt leader attached as it will help with getting our hitch up into position without pushing the hardware back into the frame. Now here on the driver side the process will be the exact same for the rear attachment point, but our forward attachment point will get fed through the access hole of the rear attachment point. We're going to put our forward hardware in place first. We'll take the pull wire, feed it into the attachment point, and then out the access hole. There we'll slide on our block, thread on the carriage bolt. I'll feed the block into the frame first, followed by the carriage bolt, and use our bolt leader to pull them into place. Now before the hitch is installed here on the driver side we're going to add a spacer block to compensate for the manufacturer's plastic. The spacer block will get sandwiched between our hitch and the frame. We'll have one from both attachment points here on the driver side. Now to make it easier to get our spacer block installed, we're going to go ahead and tape it to the attachment point on the hitch. Now to tape them to the hitch we can simply take the block, set it over the attachment point, and then I'm just going to use a piece of electrical tape here to hold it in place until the hitch is in position. Now we're ready to put our hitch in place. Now as I put the hitch in place we'll just set the fastener side up on top of the exhaust and come over to the driver side, take our bolt leaders, feed them through the spacer block down through the hitch attachment point so we can bring it up to the frame. Once in position I can go ahead and remove the bolt leader and install the conical tooth washer and nut. Now once I get the first one started here on the driver side we'll move over to the passenger side and get that one going. We're just repeating the same basic process, pulling our pull wires through the hitch attachment points, bring our hitch up tight to the frame, and then removing the pull wire. Note if we put a little side pressure on our conical tooth washer, it will help hold the carriage bolt in position while we install the nut. We'll just install each fastener finger tight until we have them all in place. Now let's move back over here to the driver side, remove the second bolt leader, slide my conical tooth washer on, and the nut. Now that our frame hardware is in place, we can install the u-bolt into the tow hook. Our u-bolt is going to go down over the tow hook and through the hitch center attachment point. Securing the u-bolt on each side is going to be a flat washer, split lock washer, and then a nut. Now once all our hardware is in place we can go ahead and tighten it down. Keep in mind as we tighten down the u-bolt we want to make sure we tighten down both sides evenly. That's not a good idea. Now once we have all our fasteners tightened down we can go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now with all our fasteners tightened down and torqued to specifications we'll go ahead and reinstall the exhaust. Now with our hitch installed, tightened down, and secured, we're ready to hit the road. That will do it for the review and install of the Draw-Tite class one 1-1/4" receiver tube hitch, part number 24920, on our 2015 Honda Fit. .

Great Hitch! Easy install, only thing is they sent 2 of the wrong nuts for the u-bolt. I had to run out to get them, not to bad. Install took me about 1 hour. 697692

Product, ( hitch for daughters Honda Fit) . Shipping was so fast. Received in a couple days and shipping box was in great condition. The use is to carry a bicycle rack. Being older, not as easy to climb under car, but hitch fit and finish was perfect and it installed quite easy. Hint, Watch video, it gives you a good idea of what is involved for old retired mechanics like me. Very satisfied and so easy to buy with great price and free shipping. Thank You etrailer.com 516648

One year later, hitch finish still looks new and function is excellent. Hitch shows no signs of rust or chipping. Nothing else to add about a well designed and finished product. Thank you again.

Downsizing so I needed a hitch setup for my 2015 Honda Fit. I have utilized etrailer previously on my daughter's Outback and received the same prompt FREE delivery. Solo install and only a little regret not having a mate to support the hitch when doing the bolt up. No surprises and that is a good thing. Note: Bend the one muffler hanger down about a quarter inch to remove any chance of muffler against bolt head tap. Thanks etrailer. 418540

A nice product. I would recommend this company to anyone wanting to purchase a hitch. The installation is a one person job, however, and extra set of hands is nice to have. 308208

Ordered Saturday, Delivered Wednesday, super fast! Except for the obvious clearance problem installation was pretty straightforward, just read the other reviews for helpful tips. Was a little apprehensive about bending the muffler holders but you really have to, wish I had done it BEFORE I mounted the hitch. Great hitch if you want to use a bike rack for your 2015 Fit, as you can see by my photo, you can barely even tell it's there 193588

Perfect hitch for my Honda Fit, driven several thousand miles with 2 bikes on my trailer hitch bike rack and have had ZERO problems, 2 thumbs up!

Easy install all I really needed was an extra set of hands. Shipment was fast, package was intact with no tears or rips. Receive package with no missing parts, instructions where clear and easy to understand. Also video very helpful. I use the hitch for my Yakima bike rack. This hitch is perfect for this application. 262564

The hitch has worked great on a 2016 Honda Fit. It was a bit tricky to install around the muffler but the reviews and video were very helpful. We use it for a dual bike rack and it has worked fine even on our longest trip, about 3 hrs transiting NY Metro area. 380781

Fast shipping and all parts were included. The assembly directions are minimal. It took about 1 1/2 hours to install on a 2016 Honda Fit. I temporarily held the hitch in place by attaching the U-bolt to the car tow ring, while installing the hitch ends. Having 2 people might help but it is tight under the car. I had the car up on ramps, otherwise there is not enough room. 658668

It's been a year, no problems at all. I had it installed on my 2015 Honda Fit by a mechanic. He didn't complain, so the installation was all right I guess. I use it with a bike rack to carry my bicycle around almost every day. I don't really know what to write here, it's a trailer hitch, it just works. 343047

The three spacers 1/4 x 7/8 x 3 were too large to fit into the factory holes. They all needed to be shaved from 7/8 width to 3/4 width to be able to insert and be manuvered into place. Once this was done, installation was possible. Also the there are two rubber muffler hangars and one had be replaced with a longer one because the muffler no longer had clearance once the 7/16 x 1-1/4 carriage bolt was installed. The original rubber hangar was too short to strech. Autozone had a good supply to choose from and one was selected that was 3/8 inches longer and ealisy installed without a stretch. If these two issues hadn't arose, I would have given 5 stars on this review. Taping the spaces was a great idea. If the spacers are too large to pass through the chassis holes, place all three of them together in a vice and use a belt sander with 40-60 grit belt to strip metal off. Then use a 220 grit belt for smoother finished surface. Be sure to take metal evenly from both sides and keep the hold centered. 483755

Installation was as per instructions, except for one minor and one major problem. Minor problem is that you have to re-install the muffler by attaching the inboard rubber isolator FIRST; if you do the outboard one first, there's not enough clearance to get your hand in. Major problem: the 1-1/4" mounting bolt on the passenger side is long enough to contact the muffler, transmitting engine noise directly to the interior. I had to remove the rear passenger tire, lower the outboard side of the muffle and cut off the excess bolt length in order to provide some clearance between the bolt and the muffler. 181118

What year is your Honda Fit? The muffler has to come off for the install? Not merely disconnected from its hanger bracket or bolt?Thanks.

This hitch is only confirmed as fit for the 2015 Honda Fit so far. The installation instructions indicate that bending the exhaust hangers is necessary after install and this should eliminate some of the rattle.

Hitch does what's its intended to do. Also an easy install. Im giving this exact part a 1 star rating due to the fact that it will rub on your OEM exhaust(2017 Honda Fit-GK5) and make a horrible rattling sound. Customer service replied with one email after my complaint telling me to either bend my stock exhaust bracket down or go out and purchase longer exhaust hangers to stop the rubbing...seriously, thanks for the help.... 573527


Comments

The exhaust system at the rear of the car is attached to the vehicle using flexible rubber isolators and easily bendable exhaust hangers. Because of this, the actual position of the exhaust system can vary a bit from vehicle to vehicle. When the hitch is installed, its position is fixed and will not vary from vehicle to vehicle. The large tolerances in the exhaust system is what can allow the rattle to occur. In other words, its not the fault of the hitch or its design. Youll just need to create a bit more space between the hitch and the exhaust. The good news is that this is a pretty common occurrence that is easily remedied by slightly bending the exhaust hanger. Ive linked you to an FAQ article that addresses how to easily fix the rattle.

After some modifications to keep the mounting bolt from rubbing on my muffler I am happy with the performance. After it was installed there was nothing anybody could do to get it off or keep it off the muffler so I had to pay a muffler shop to cut off and make a new muffler mount to drop the muffler enough so it wouldn't rub on my hitch frame mounting bolt. This hitch is a better hitch than what I could find to put on my 2017 Honda Fit. Seems stronger and mounted better. 461369

I was pretty nervous about ordering a receiver hitch for my 2015 Honda Fit since almost no one seems to make a specific hitch for that tiny car. I had some confidence in etrailer since they did such a great job on a previous Honda Accord. I ordered the hitch and watched the [online] videos they provided and everything went EXACTLY like they said it would. I had the hitch on and wired in about 2 hours. I use the hitch every single Saturday to pull a small boat to my fishing spot. It works like a champ! 726360

Easy to install on my 2018 Honda Fit Sport. You won't be towing much weight but it's perfect for bike hitches and lightweight cargo carriers. If you have a 2018+ Sport then you already know that the rear bumper diffuser is a concern with the hitch clearance. It clears it by about 1/2 an inch. Also another concern is the muffler. On the Sport, it will contact the protruding bolt of the hitch when installing. The Fit Sports muffler hanger are both pointed in opposite directions for the 2018 model. It differs slightly than trailer's install video. You will have to bend both hangers slightly up to clear the bolt. It also takes some considerable force. Get someone to help you, but if you're solo, install the middle U-bolt first to support the weight of the hitch. I'm using a Kuat Transfer 1 bike rack with this hitch and it clears the bumper perfectly when folded in its upright position. 711570

So good product. 706041



- 24920

Installed on a 2019 Honda Fit Sport- The hitch came with bolts that did not match the nuts provided for the driver side-totally different sizes- I had to go to a specialty fastener store and buy grade 8 nuts to match the bolts provided. The guide wires had much too large of a spring end also slipping right off the bolts and so I had to tape the wires to the bolts. The passenger side bolt/nut ( shorter one) once the hitch is installed makes hard direct contact with the top rear of the muffler so I had to hammer a dent into the top of the muffler body and buy new exhaust hanger rubber isolators to hang slightly longer so it wouldn't contact. This hitch kit does not fit without significant frustration and modifications. I would not recommend this hitch. I am very handy and mechanically inclined and this hitch kit is the worst I've ever installed. 695796

Bought this rack along the Rola TX-102 bike rack for my Honda Fit. They arrived within a few days. Installation was well within my shade-tree mechanic skills, although you do want to read the directions carefully and identify the right mounting holes! Everything works great, both hitch and rack are solidly built. Be sure to order a locking pin. 686626

This is a class 1 hitch for a small car. I had it and the wiring harness installed by a mechanic for about $80. I have had many class 2 hitches so class 1 was a bit of a surprise. The class 1 is very light weight but so is my new Honda Fit. 674050

I purchased the hitch so that I could attach a bike hitch to cart my bicycle, Sandia, and my friend's bicycle, Sylvia, around. While it looks like the bicycles are bigger than my car, I drive to bike trails with confidence, knowing my girls will still be attached when we arrive at the park. We have all had so much fun exploring bike trails this year. It's been awesome. 610907

Hitch arrived as promised. Arrived at 10:30 am. I had it installed by lunch time. Instructions were spot on. And the Video for installing it was exact. I usually buy from trailer when I need anything like this. Great service and extensive knowledge of the products. The only issue was one spacer was missing from the parts package, but I had one in my shop, 596365

- 24920
by:
2015 Honda Fit

The only reason I'm giving a rating of 3, not 5, is because of two mistakes with the contents of the hardware bag. There was only one spacer instead of two, and there were 2 @7/16" nuts and 3 @3/8" nuts instead of 3 and 2. Unfortunately for me, I found this out when the car was already jacked up and the hitch ready to install around 5pm on Friday of a 3 day weekend. So, I had to spend a couple of hours on Sat. rounding up the correct hardware. Note to self: always check the contents of the hardware bag before beginning the job! Anyway, as many others have said, the videos are really great, and other than the hardware issue, the installation went smoothly. I would definitely order other products from etrailer -- everyone deserves a second chance, right? 582316

I , being a mechanic , installed this on an friends Honda Fit . With my automotive connections I couldn’t find a cheaper price locally. We decided to do this on a week night , in the driveway . I wasn’t looking forward to the install . Knowing things take twice as long with a helper, I had the vehicle ready to work on when I got home . By the time my friend showed up it was done . Very easy to install . Easily 5 stars . The fit and finish was excellent . 560035

Product fit well and it was a straight forward install. My biggest issue was trying to thread the nuts onto the bolts - not a lot of room for someone with large hands working on the ground. Figure out how you will bend the exhaust hangers before attempting to install this product. That was the most difficult part of the install for me. 542577

I love it. The hitch receiver is unobtrusive and attachments fit snugly. I use the load extender in combination with a roof rack for long lumber. I've used the cargo carrier for roofing shingles, trash and returnable cans. Thanks for great products and service. 541448

This was an easy installation, and a perfect fit on our 2017 Honda Fit. I did have to bend the muffler hanger down slightly, but that worked great; no noise from the installation, and no problems with the hitch over the last year. I just need to remember to remove the rubber plug before going through a car wash, have lost one already that way. 539385

I bought this product to transport my bicycle. I saw the installation process on youtube. It didn't look too hard so I figured I'll give it a shot. It wasn't too bad. It would have been easier if I had a lift. I did it in the driveway on my back. I also used a jack to help me lift the hitch into position. The hitch is very well made. I'm sure the hitch will last longer than my car. 493057

These guys are great! I ordered this for my son and it arrived in time for installation on his Honda I really like how friendly, engaged in quality service, and respectful with follow up they are! I drive a Eurovan and a Suburu; we get so much of our gear from these guys! Awesome! 419165

my only issue was that there was a one quarter inch spot of welding material in the opening where the tow bar slides in. I had to use a narrow crowbar and chisel it out so the bar would go in far enough to put the pin in. it was not easy!!! otherwise I like the it. hope that it installs easily ... 414021


Comments

Thanks for the review, and Draw-Tite brand Class I hitches will all have the a stop welded into the receiver tube to prevent higher capacity Class II accessories from being used. This is intentionally done as a safety measure. Overloading the hitch can cause the receiver tube to bend or the hitch attachment points to the vehicle to fail. Please note that the manufacture instructions call for the 3593 drawbar to be used, and specifically in the rise position.

Easy installation and fit. The only think extra I had to do was bend the muffler tubes to the rubber mounts so the muffler did not rub on the mounting bolt. Now I can use my bike rack, not having to take my bike wheels off to transport my bike to the cycling events. 406759

I am very happy with the product, customer service, speedy email replies and delivery. There were a couple of nicks in the product that don't appear to be from shipping, but overall, i am very satisfied, would recommend the etrailer company and I would do business with them again. 397664

This hitch was very easy to install. I appreciate that there is no recommendation for a stabilizer for this hitch. I recommend pulling the exhaust hangers down a bit other wise the addition of the hitch made it a bit noisy. Lowering the hangers solved the problem. 390504

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Which is Better Curt or Draw Tite Hitch for 2017 Honda Fit
  • Both the Draw Tite hitch part # 24920 and the Curt part # C11406 are great hitch options for your 2017 Honda Fit. The only real difference that you'd notice between the two is how far the hitch sticks out relative to the rear bumper. The Draw Tite has 3 inches from the pin hole of the hitch to the outside of the bumper and the Curt Has 1/2 inch so it would stick out a bit more. If it was my choice I would go with the Draw Tite since the hitch will be recessed enough that it's out of...

  • How to Carry a Recumbent Bike and Recumbent Trike with a 2015 Honda Fit
  • I hate to tell you but you will not be able to carry the bikes with your Honda Fit. The issue is that all of the trailer hitches for the Fit are Class I hitches. The types of bike racks that can hold both a trike and a recumbent bike, such as # HR1450Z-R-TRKADP2, only fit Class III and up 2 inch trailer hitches. There are adapters but the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. The tongue weight capacity of the available trailer hitches is...

  • Parts Needed to Add Trailer Hitch Load Extender to 2017 Honda Fit
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24920 is confirmed to fit your 2017 Honda Fit and will work well for you. However it's a Class I hitch so the Class II MaxxTow Adapter # MT70032 will not fit in the hitch. They're both 1-1/4 inches but the Draw-Tite has a stopper inside of it to prevent you from overloading the Class I hitch with Class II accessories. Instead you can use the Brophy # HTAD. Then you will be able to install the MaxxTow Load Extender # MT70231. You'll also need to be mindful...

  • Would a Hitch or Roof Rack be a Better Option for Bike Rack on 2018 Honda Fit?
  • I recommend using a hitch and hitch-mounted bike rack on your 2018 Honda Fit for a couple reasons. The first is convenience; it is going to be much easier for you to mount your bikes on a hitch-mounted rack as opposed to a roof rack where you'd have to lift the bike on top of your car as opposed to simply placing it in the hitch rack. The other reason is cost; a roof rack will be far pricier than a hitch, and you can either pocket those savings or use it to get a premium bike rack. As...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2018 Honda Fit
  • The best trailer hitch receiver we have for your 2018 Honda Fit is the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24920 which is a direct fit and installs using pre drilled holes in the frame rail. This option will also not require the use of an additional support strap part # 18050 like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11406 will. I have attached an install video of this trailer hitch for you. As you can see, the install process is very easy taking most on average only...

  • Which is Better for 2019 Honda Fit Curt Trailer Hitch or Draw Tite Trailer Hitch
  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24920 is a better hitch for your 2019 Honda Fit than the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11406. While the hitches are very similar in a lot of ways, the Draw-Tite has just slightly better bumper clearance, and in my experience the Draw-Tite brand has been a higher quality and is the direction I recommend going. I have added links to video installs as well as the written instructions for you to take a look at as well.

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring and Ball Mount Recommendation for 2015 Honda Fit
  • For smaller, lighter-duty vehicles like your 2015 Honda Fit we only have Class I hitches like the Draw Tite part # 24920 that you referenced. I can't imagine a Class II hitch being available or useful for your vehicle as it wouldn't be able to tow 3,500 lbs regardless of what hitch is on it. We have trailer wiring as part # 118767 which would be a fantastic option confirmed as a fit. For a ball mount you'd then want the part # 36071 which is designed for this hitch and then for hitch...

  • Do the Hitch Holes On a 2019 Honda Fit Need to Be Enlarged to Install a Hitch
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24920 which is a fit for your 2019 Honda Fit should not require you to drill or enlarge any holes in the frame per the owner's manual. I looked over the reviews for this hitch and there was one instance of a customer who had to shave the spacer block to fit it through the holes but nothing to the vehicle itself was altered. That said, it is not completely out of the ordinary to have to slightly enlarge a hole in the frame so this may...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2015 Honda Fit
  • As long as you do not overload the Thule Passage part # TH910XT (35 lbs per bike), and you keep the painted surfaces of your Fit clean as well as the pads of the bike rack you would do no damage to your vehicle with this rack. A much better option for you might be a hitch mounted option since it wouldn't contact your vehicle at all. For a hitch you would want the part # 24920 as it has been confirmed as a fit. Since you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without...

  • Best Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Honda Fit for Bike Rack
  • Curt recommends the stabilizer strap with non-supported loads like bike racks to help support the hitch when going over bumps to prevent some of the vertical shock from being transferred to the hitch. Curt does this as a precaution, it's not that Draw Tite or Hidden Hitch are stronger. Both hitch brands make outstanding hitches that are typically stronger than what they are rated for. I would say that Curt just happens to approach the idea of a bike rack/cargo carrier being used in a...

  • Is Exhaust Bracket Bending Required to Install Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Honda Fit
  • Yes, when you install the Draw Tite hitch part # 24920 on a 2016 Honda Fit you will need to bend the exhaust hangers slightly so that the hitch does not rattle against the exhaust. They will need to be bent 1/2 inch downward. Check out the install instructions and install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 or 2016 Honda Fit
  • The best priced hitch available for either a 2015 or 2016 Honda Fit is the Draw Tite part # 24920 which would be a great option. The Curt hitch part # C11406 is the most expensive and require the use of a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack so it would not be what we would recommend. If you were to do some towing with the # 60353 you would also need the wiring kit part # 119190KIT, hitch ball # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball or part # 19258 for a 2 inch ball.

  • Best Bike Rack for Ease of Use for 2017 Honda Fit
  • The easiest to load and unload bike racks are platform racks by far. Typically this style of rack is a bit heavier but there is a great solution that is lighter in weight with the Saris Freedom SuperClamp part # SA4025F which weighs 35 lbs. That makes it very easy to install and remove as well. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well. You will need a hitch installed on the rear of your vehicle as well. The best option is then the Draw Tite # 24920 as it does...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Honda Fit LX
  • Yes, the Draw Tite hitch part # 24920 that you referenced is confirmed as a fit for your 2017 Honda Fit LX. It will work great with the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 as well. For a similar bike rack that is a bit more stable on the road the Hollywood Racks part # HR200Z is what I prefer. If you check out the two review videos I attached you'll see the HR200 is a bit more stable.

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda Fit for Carrying Bike Rack
  • Hitch mounted bike racks are the way to go as they provide the most stable attachment to the vehicle, are the easiest to load/install, and don't touch any vehicle painted surfaces. For a hitch the Draw Tite part # 24920 would be the hitch to go with as the Curt requires a stabilizer strap when you carry a bike rack. The install for this rack is pretty easy as well. I attached an install video for you to check out that will cover the entire process as well. I really like the Saris...

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch # 24920 Fit 2018 Honda Fit Sport
  • For your 2018 Honda Fit Sport the Draw Tite hitch part # 24920 is a confirmed fit and would work well. For trailer wiring you then would want the ZCI kit part # 119250KIT as it fits your vehicle and does not require any splicing. For a ball mount you'd want the part # 36071 and for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball # 19256.

  • Bike Rack Compatibility With Draw-Tite Class I Receiver Hitch
  • A Class I hitch like the Draw-Tite # 24920 would use a 1/2 inch diameter hitch pin. If the bike rack you're interested in is compatible with a Class 1 hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver, it will be compatible with the hitch. The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR for example would be perfectly compatible with a Class I hitch, although you'd be limited to carrying two bikes on it due to the low tongue weight capacity of a Class I hitch. Thule also offers a similar rack that can carry two...

  • Is a 4-Bike Rack Possible for 2015 Honda Fit?
  • Your 2015 Honda Fit will not have a bike rack available that can carry 4 bikes because only Class I hitches will fit your vehicle, and Class I hitches such as the Draw-Tite # 24920 that fits your Honda have a maximum capacity of 2 bikes. There are 3-bike trunk-mounted racks for your Fit such as the Hollywood Racks # HRF2-3. This rack uses straps with rubber-coated hooks to secure to your car and has foam pads that prevent scuffs or other damage to your Honda. Additionally, please note...

  • I can assure you that all three of the hitches recommended for your 2015 Honda Fit do actually fit. This includes the Curt Hitch part # C11406 and the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24920. Both of the hitches will install basically the same. The Curt hitch uses a very similar installation method but doesn't use all of the same holes in the frame as the other one. The install time between them would realistically be about the same. The manufacturers just so happen to use different approximations,...

  • Adding Cargo to a 2015 Honda Fit
  • There are trailer hitch receivers available for your 2015 Honda Fit but they're all Class I hitches like the Draw-Tite, part # 24920. The maximum tongue weight of the hitch is only 200 pounds and it's likely that your Fit is rated even lower than that; if at all. I looked up an online owner's manual for the Fit and it states to not to a trailer at all. Even though you're not trying to tow this is an indication that it isn't rated to carry any weight on a trailer hitch. Check your printed...

Since Curt requires the use of a stabilizer strap with their hitches when used with a non-supported load like a bike rack a better solution would be the Draw Tite Hitch part# 24920 as it does not have the strap stipulation.

  • How to Determine Ground Clearance on a 2015 Honda Fit with Draw-Tite Hitch Before Installation
  • On Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24920 and all of the hitches for the 2015 Honda Fit the receiver will be directly below the rear fascia. So if you measure from the bottom most part of the fascia down to the ground and subtract 1-3/4 inches that will be the approximate ground clearance measurement once the hitch is installed. On smaller vehicles that are low to the ground to start with, adding a trailer hitch usually reduces ground clearance so you have to keep that in mind when choosing...

The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier for Vehicles w/ Spoilers # HRF2, for example, will work for your vehicle, but it has a weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike.
