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. Technical Support

2020 Volvo XC40

Shipping and packaging were great. The paint on the hitch frame and components was excellent. The lower facia removal was as-described on the video. I found an alignment problem with the drivers side lug that accepts the 3/8” bolt. It was off center of the hole by 3/16”, so I left that bolt out. The passenger side lug was well aligned with the bolt hole. Another issue I found was access to the lock with the facia installed. In the case of my cx40, there was a plastic piece containing three plugs that was immediately below the lock. Not wanting to move it, I relocated the access port further towards the driver side. The access port is small, just big enough to get my had through. It’s difficult the get the key in the lock but doable. My vision of easily removing the stealth hitch has faded.
I question now if I should have gone with the fixed hitch given the difficulty accessing the lock. I took a few photos which I’ll post. I covered the small “ lock” access hole with black electrical tape.
Overall the quality of the hitch is excellent. I would have appreciated more info about accessing the lock.

The instructions say to move those cables that you are describing as a plastic piece with three plugs, which is actually just the hands free kick sensor. Because you did not want to move those cables, and moved the access port instead, it is more difficult to reach the lock now. It is best just to follow the instructions to ensure that everything works together properly.

2021 Volvo XC40

I was looking for a hitch primarily for a bike rack or possible some very light towing, but I did not want to ruin the looks of my 2021 Volvo XC40 with a hitch receiver showing in the back. Also I had concerns about blocking the foot sensor for the hatch door with a standard hitch. The Stealth Hitch addressed both concerns perfectly. After installation, it was completely invisible and the foot sensor still worked as it should. I was a very happy camper.
That said, there are 2 considerations to keep in mind before purchasing this product:
1- Make sure there is a qualified local installer in your area as your car could easily be damaged if the installation is not done properly. My Volvo dealer refused to install it because it was not their own product. Proper installation by a professional outfit is expensive and in my case was nearly double to cost of the hitch itself. If you happen to have the tools and know-how to do the installation yourself, then more power to you and has been reportedly done successfully by others.
2- You do have to get under the bumper to install the hitch receiver extension every time you want to attach something to the hitch. Not really a huge deal and a quick process, but a little inconvenient nonetheless. Can't have everything I suppose :)
Overall a great and well designed product that meets a specific need.


I love it, you can't even tell it's there, after a year it's still working like it did on day 1. Highly recommend this product.

2019 Volvo XC40

Nice hitch and does not show after installation. No welding needed.
Inventory immediately available and ships vs other vendors having longer lead times and no inventory.
Etrailer website easy to use, has lots of detailed information and videos of each item.
Customer service and shipping responded timely and accurately to my order.
Very pleased with Etrailer.



Ask the Experts about this Stealth Hitches Trailer Hitch

  • Is Trimming Involved When Installing the SH77R on a 2021 Volvo XC40?
    Installing the Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # SH77FR on a 2021 Volvo XC40 does indeed require trimming for the install, which is listed after entering your vehicle information. The hands-free trunk release cable holder is not removed, but is relocated. I included a few pictures from the instructions showing what would need to be done. With all this being said, none of this should void the warranty. Adding a hitch to a vehicle is extremely common and trimming or relocating things...

  • What Hitch Will Fit A 2021 Volvo XC 60
    Hello there, your 2021 Volvo XC60 is a confirmed fit for the Stealth Hitch Hidden Rack Receiver # SH87FR. The Stealth Hitch # SH77FR is not a confirmed fit. To answer your other question we do not have a confirmed fit hitch of any make or brand that is confirmed for the 2022 Volvo XC60. I called Stealth Hitches myself and they confirmed that they do NOT have a hitch that can fit any 2022 Volvo yet.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Kit Recommendation for 2020 Volvo XC40
    I have a trailer hitch solution for your 2020 Volvo XC40 that is a confirmed fit but we do not have a Draw Tite hitch that has been carried over. Including the # 76245 that you referenced. The Stealth hitch part # SH77FR though is a confirmed fit and a really great option. When you aren't using the hitch you can easily remove the lower hitch opening/ball mount platform and the hitch would be totally out of plainsight.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation that Fits 2020 XC40
    I do have a really great hidden trailer hitch for your 2020 Volvo XC40 but the Draw Tite you mentioned has not been carried over to the 2020 models as of February 2020. We do have the Stealth hitch part # SH77FR as a fit which when not in use is totally out of sight since the lower hitch opening can be removed.

  • Best Hitch To Avoid Disabling The Cargo Door Sensor On A 2019 Volvo XC40
    Depending on what options you have from the factory, the sensors can be in different places.

  • Does Stealth Hitch Hidden Receiver Require Trimming Fascia on 2019 Volvo XC40?
    The Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # SH77FR does not require any trimming or cutting of the fascia. The receiver does tighten when locked and there is little movement in the receiver when installed. There is always some movement in bike racks, but there will be slightly more noticeable movement than when being used with a standard welded hitch receiver like # 76245. The designed shape of the Stealth Receiver will mitigate any significant movement so safety is...

The Draw-Tite # 76245 Class III hitch will be mostly concealed once installed, with only the receiver tube and safety chain hoops being visible from the rear of the vehicle.

    The Stealth Hitches Rack Receiver # SH77FR is the currently (January 2020) the only fit guided hitch for the 2020 Volvo XC 40 and has a 2" receiver only.
