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

Amazing hitch. Very unobtrusive. Hard to see it on the car unless you're looking. This was very important for me. I use it with a 2 inch lift hitch to get a good height. Have never drug it in a driveway. Install was straightforward and they give you the hardware needed. The safety chain loops are also a good size. Very happy with the hitch and will look at draw-tite for any future hitch.

This is an excellent hitch for my 2018 Honda Accord. Had a mechanic install since I wasn't comfortable taking the bumper face off but once installed, it is solid, neat, and sturdy. The mounting holes and provided bolts fit perfectly. It doesn't protrude too much from bottom of bumper and does not protrude at all from rear of the car.

Price was reasonable and shipping was free for this hitch designed to fit a 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid. The directions to remove the bumper and install the hitch was decent, but I would suggest going online to see how the bumper removal goes. From opening the box to taking the final install pictures, it took about 40 minutes. I’ll be using this for primarily for a bike rack, and rarely, for moving light items on a rack that won’t fit inside the vehicle. I’m a little disappointed that a locking pin wasn’t included in the package, but not a deal breaker. Overall, still an excellent experience.

Still works great for hauling road bikes on a platform type carrier. So much better than having a Saris Bones on the trunk!

Very prompt in getting the hitch delivered. Just installed the hitch in about three hours. Good instructions. Had a tough time getting the hitch/bumper on ... found that putting one screw on with a wrench works well. The electrical plug that had to be disconnected was much easier with the connector removed from the car (i.e. remove connector from hook on car and then disconnect by pressing on the connector). Had problem putting bumper back on due to self induced issues like sure that the bumper bottom is aligned. Had to cut the bumper a little bit to fit the hitch. Hitch seems to be well constructed as far as I can tell. Will update this review if any issues using it with my bike rack.

The product is excellent and what really made the whole experience excellent was etrailer's installation video, which is all I needed in addition to having all the right tools to make it as easy as possible to install. I did have to trim 1/2" off the bumper panel where it was touching the receiver hitch so that the holes lined up to replace the push pin fasteners underneath the trunk but it was no big deal. If you are intimidated by the install, don't be, but gather the appropriate tools before you start to avoid frustration. An offset screwdriver tool or attachment would be very helpful to get the screws out of the rear wheel wells. I have the Skewdriver Pro SPK4042 and love having it in my tool arsenal. I'm excited to use my bike rack on this tow hitch receiver!

Installation took about a hour. Make sure you tighten the bolts right and left sides evenly. I cranked the left side completely down first by specs and when applying the bumper back on the right side was slightly tighter. At least thats my opinion.... thank you

The product got to me quick... installation was easy, even with having to pull the bumper fascia off. It looks good on the Accord. I will get to use it this weekend to load up my bike rack for a trip to So Cal.

I selected this product because it would mount to my vehicle without having to drill holes in the body/frame. The sole purpose of this hitch was to be able to mount a bike rack to my car. Since i don't intend to tow a trailer, I didn't need to purchase the wiring harness. When I unpacked the hitch I noticed some of the coating was missing from the mounting plates. I was informed by etrailer that they generally do not replace a hitch for cosmetic reasons as road debris will cause the same kind of damage. Since this part of the hitch was in contact with the car body, I touched it up with rust resistant paint before installing it. Installation went smoothly following the step-by-step instructions complete with photos. I've used the bike rack three times since the installation of the hitch, twice carrying two bikes for over 100 miles. The hitch holds the bike rack securely with little movement of the bikes detected in the mirror while driving at highway speed or travelling over rough city streets.

Very happy with how it looks. Feels sturdy enough. I took one star away because I had to take a file to the receiver shave off some of the metal. The receiver was to right of tolerance to accept my bike rack. But only took about 5 minutes. Install was east and straight forward. I trimmed the bumper maybe an inch. You won’t see it where you have to trim.



- 24972

This was easy to install. It took about an hour start to finish on my 2019 Honda Accord. It has worked well. With the ball mount off it isn't noticeable at all. (The wiring harness for trailer lighting took a lot longer to install, but is not part of this hardware review.)

Hitch came with several dings and scratches but I honestly could not deal with waiting for a second hitch to be delivered to me. But this review is based on how the product is doing, I’ve had it on for 3 months. And use it daily and I have no complaints on how to works, my only complaint is how I received the product, dinged and scratched. It seemed as it was a used product and just shipped to me. Maybe someone returned it. Who knows.

Bolted right on. Took about an hour just like the instructions said. Hardest part is getting the plastic rivets out of the bumper cover. Also, if your car has a few miles on it, be warned that a bunch of dirt and gravel will come out of the inner metal bumper and make a mess on the floor.

Some sites say #24972 does not fit Accord Hybrid, but it DEFINITELY does. Very fast delivery. Order placed Wednesday, arrived Saturday. Took a little over an hour to install. Instructions/video very straightforward. Needed another set of hands when re-installing bumper w/ hitch and the fascia. Otherwise, one person job.

by:
2018 Honda Accord

The hitch itself was very easy to install. Glad we reviewed the video prior to attempting this. Really a 2 man effort; the extra hands make all the difference. The push pins were brutal to remove. The video makes it seem like a breeze but for the amateur not so, even with a 20 tool trim removal kit. The one thing lacking in the video was how to reinstall the push pins. Some of them don’t insert into rigid body parts. Final job result was very rewarding though.

Works great, use it on my Honda Accord Hybrid to carry a bike rack. I didn't feel comfortable taking the bumper off my brand new car, so I had a local body shop install it, it took them 90 minutes and they said it was harder than expected to get the plastic bumper cover off without damaging it.

Perfect fit on a 2018 Honda Accord V6 2.0L Turbo. After conversations with the Honda dealership and an official letter to Honda corporate, I was surprised to hear that there was not an officially recommended trailer hitch receiver for this new vehicle. Based on the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver's installation information, no new holes needed to be drilled and there was a possibility that a small section of the heat shield would need to be cut away. To my delight, no cutting of the heat shield was required. I purchased the hitch through etrailer.com and had my trusted local U-Haul supplier install the hitch and I am 100% satisfied. I have written a follow-up letter to Honda corporate about this successful purchase from etrailer.com so that Honda may also recommend this solution to other 2018 Accord owners.

I would give a 5 star but! I have two umm... medium to big issue with the item. #1 the metal part where you attach it to has like some type of hook where the OEM part goes and I saw no other option but to screw it in like that and bend it inwards basically. #2 the curved thing poking out the bumper in the bottom doesn’t give the necessary space for the bumper to sit with no issue. Now I could not attack two clips because of that and the bumper got scratched on that part, which I did not care because you can’t see it unless you go underneath and it gets scratches with rocks either way.


Comments
I believe youre speaking of the two small protrusions shown in figure 2 of the instructions. Per the instructions, those need to be pushed inward until theyre flush with the end panel. That will allow everything to fit together correctly.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid for Bike Rack
    The hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite, part # 24972. It's confirmed to fit all styles of the 2018 Honda Accord including your hybrid. It's a Class I hitch which means you're limited to two bikes. If you're looking to carry more than two then we'll need to find another solution like a trunk mount or a roof rack. If two bikes is all you need then a hitch rack is the way to go. They're easily to load than a roof mount carrier and more stable than a trunk mount. A great rack to look...

There is enough space in the stock set up to allow for the hitch to fit without compromising the fit of the fascia relative to the other panels. If you tow the recommended ball mount is # 3593 and you can use 1-7/8 inch ball # 19256 or 2 inch ball # 19258.
