  • Stealth Hitches
  • Completely Hidden
  • 350 lbs TW

This completely hidden hitch keeps your vehicle looking like it just came off the assembly line. Remove the receiver for a fully concealed look when you're not carrying your bikes to the trail. Only for use with hitch-mounted racks and carriers.

  • Custom-fit rack receiver lets you carry a bike rack or cargo carrier with your vehicle
  • Totally hidden design offers a clean, from-the-factory look
    • Cross tube is concealed behind your rear bumper
    • Receiver detaches with no tools and can be stowed away when not in use
  • Sturdy center block allows secure mounting and easy removal of rack receiver
    • Integrated lock protects the rack receiver from theft
    • Durable stainless steel construction resists corrosion
  • Hitch won't affect ground clearance or block your trunk's foot-access sensor
  • Simple, bolt-on installation - no drilling or welding required
    • Uses existing connection points to protect your vehicle's crumple zones

Note: This rack receiver is for hitch-mounted accessories only. The receiver tube included with this hitch cannot be used for towing.


If you would like to upgrade this rack receiver for towing, you will need to purchase the Stealth Hitches towing kit (SH82VR - sold separately). The ball mount included in this kit inserts into the center block of the hitch in place of the receiver attachment. A 2" hitch ball is included with the ball mount, making it ready to tow with out of the box.


  • Maximum gross trailer weight with towing kit: 3,500 lbs
  • Not rated for weight distribution systems

If you want to take your bikes to the trail with your family this summer, you have plenty of options. You can carry your bikes on top of your car with a roof rack, but that bulky rack can increase drag on your ride. You can use a trunk rack, but that's a pain to mount and it can scratch your car's paint. Or you can install a hitch on your ride and use a hitch-mounted bike rack to carry your bikes.


This rack receiver is designed to act as a mounting point for your hitch bike rack or cargo carrier. Just slide the shank of your carrier into the receiver for use, and when you're done you can not only remove the carrier, but the receiver as well, leaving your vehicle looking clean and unmodified.


Completely Hidden Design

Nothing can ruin the clean, stylish look of your vehicle like a giant piece of metal bolted beneath its bumper. Luckily, with the Stealth Hitches rack receiver, you never have to worry about messing up your vehicle's lines.


Removable receiver

This hitch installs behind your bumper, keeping the cross tube concealed and leaving only the hitch receiver visible. Even better, the receiver can be easily removed from the cross tube when it's not in use so that you won't see any trace of the hitch. This means that you can retain that clean, from-the-factory look for your ride, while still being able to carry your bikes and gear on the next family road trip.


Simple Set Up

The receiver can be attached or detached in seconds with no tools required. To insert the receiver, simply pop the base up into the stainless steel block at the center of the hitch until it automatically latches in place.


push lock

Be sure to then press the lock on the side of the block to fully secure the receiver. When you're finished carrying your bikes or cargo, use the included key to unlock the latch. Then turn the handle on the block clockwise and remove the receiver. You can stow the receiver in a safe place, like your vehicle's rear cargo area, or you can use a convenient carrying case (391CASER - sold separately).


hitch plug and center block

And when you're not using the receiver attachment, the included hitch plug covers the center block's opening to protect the hitch's body from dirt and debris.

  • Can a 2019 VW Tiguan Carry a Mobility Scooter With the Stealth Hitches SH49ZR Installed?
    The Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # SH49ZR will be rated up to 350 pounds, but from what I could find, it will be rated up to 220 pounds when installed on a 2019 VW Tiguan as this is the vehicle's max tongue weight capacity. With that being said, as long as the combined weight of the scooter and its carrier is less than the 220 pounds, you will be good to go. If it ends up being heavier than 220 pounds, you will need to go another way. You can add the Towing Kit w/ Ball Mount and...

  • What Hardware Do I Need To Mount My Thule T2 Pro XT # TH23JV on My 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan?
    I have an answer for you. Unfortunately, we do not carry a Curt 2-inch receiver for your 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan. With that being said, if you are going with the most economic option for your 1-1/4 version of the Thule T2 Pro XT # TH23JV, I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" # 36650. The benefit of using the Draw-Tite hitch receiver is that you wouldn't have to purchase an additional adapter if you purchased a 2-inch hitch for your vehicle like...
