Hitch is easy to put on using the specific vehicle instructions sent with the hitch. I do recommend a ratcheting wrench for the bolt on the Drivers side top. Took less then 30 minutes doing it myself in my driveway on a set of car ramps. One other person to help hold it up in place would make it even faster. I highly recommend this product!! Be sure to order the Item # 3594 Draw-Tite Drawbar for 1-1/4" Hitches - 4" Rise - 10" Long - 2,000 lbs to use with this for the 2019 Kia Soul Plus. It provides the perfect distance and height for a small trailer. :)

This hitch was just what I wanted. It took me 3 hours to put in on my Kia Soul. I needed a floor jack to hold said hitch in place while bolting into place. It took most of the time cleaning out bolt holes with various wire tools. In the end three tools gave there lives for the installation. Didn't get bolt in the "bad spot". It was never going to be more than finger tightened anyway. Saved me from a lot of swear words. I would buy again.

I installed it in literally 20minutes. No jack needed and I only had to undo the fabric liner and slide off the muffler mount. Everything lines up perfectly and secured down. I have already used it several times to haul a trailer/loads and I am loving it. Simply a must have for any Kia Soul owner as its a Game Changer!

This hitch is a beast! Over 32lbs. of richly painted thick steel. Because of the weight, it took a little longer to install by myself while laying on my back. I used a stack of 2x6 boards to hold the hitch up in place so I could insert the bolts. The hitch fits nicely up under the car; perfect fit for my 2017 Soul+. I don't have to worry about it hanging low and catching on packed snow/ice in the winter. Added the Swagman XC-2 bike rack. Holds my two mountain bikes very securely. Nice combo. I highly recommend both.

After a year, this hitch is still working great. Though it was a bit of a pain to get on there, it doesn't seem like it's going to budge at all! I use it with a Swagman XC bike rack with two somewhat large mountain bikes and haven't had a single problem yet.

I was going to video my installation, but it was done before I knew it! The hitch fit perfectly as others had stated. Drop the muffler down by releasing it from hanger, remove the 4 Plastic clips on the underside of bumper so you can flex it for ease of bolt access. You’ll need some WD-40 or Similar product, 18 mm box or ratchet style wrench,18mm socket & ratchet. Make sure to tighten all the bolts up equally from side to side until they’re seated before final torquing

I’m like a one arm paper hanger because I got a steel ball in my left shoulder that don’t work great . I blocked the the hitch up with 2 X 4’s and I also had a jack on wheels that helped. Everything lined up and all the bolts went in great . I did have some trouble when it came to cranking down the bolts down good but that’s was due to a bad arm . I’m pushing 78 come May so if I can do it anyone can .

So far everything has gone well, received Hitch yesterday , It. looks great although it took 20 days to receive it , I will install it today and I forgot to order light harness which I ordered today, my fault, now I must get to work on it. Good Job , Thanks much.

I installed this myself, not too difficult to do. Use your jack to lift it in place, unless you are super strong. It only gets 4 stars because there is one bolt that is a pain to get in.

Needed a hitch to tow my new boat. My soul is still under warranty, and my concerns were adding after market products, and voiding warranty. Especially when it comes to wiring and adding electrical.......needed a solid, no cut and splice system!! My experience on this site was more than sufficiently informative. I found the photos of installed products to be amazing. Rarely do you get so many angles and actually see what it will be after installation. I did not have to remove or loosen any parts to install the hitch. Could have to ease the process, but found it possible without doing so. Install time,( without any drilling as stated), was about thirty minutes. Barely had time to drink one beer!! Also purchased the wiring harness offered by CURT, and needed to remove a few parts. Virtually a plug and play, no cutting or splicing wires. Works as stated. My only issue, was the Curt stinger I purchased with the 5" rise. Some poor craftsmanship on the weld, as it is off center and twists slightly to the right. It will work just fine......I'm just a perfectionist when it comes to building and fabricating. My overall experience was excellent, and I would recommend this e trailer to my friends any time. Shipping was cheap, and right on time.......to the point that I knew exactly when to set a time for the install. Thanks you guy's, for once a co. that delivers, and has the moxy to follow up after the sale. I will be back as a very happy, and satisfied customer for other product needs!!


Comments
I still have been using the hitch, with no issues, and have added a single place small trailer that hauls my 2017 WR450 YAMAHA, and tow that bike with confidence of this product. The hitch still looks new, bolts are all tight, and it made my KIA Soul versatile for light towing......couldnt be more satisfied!!

The item listed on your page said it was in stock. Since a similar site had claimed that then delayed processing for weeks, I wasn't sure. I finally canceled the first one and placed this order. It shipped next day and 2 days later was on my door step. Even at a better price. Workmanship on this hitch is very good, exceeding expectation. It was packaged well, and made the trip undamaged. I will be installing this weekend. Thank you for being what you say you are. An honest, straight dealing company with excellent products offered.

Very Satisfied! Rapid shipping and good communication from the seller! Installed it myself without a lift or car jacks in about 3 hours; just on my back in the street. The instructions included were very detailed and complete; although I didn't have to use them, due to the YouTube Videos on installation. The quality of the materials are very high and the finish is good. Everything bolted-up nicely and fit well. I plan on pulling a trailer to move some household goods and later maybe a mini travel trailer. Highly recommended!

The hitch installed easily. It bolted right up to existing holes in the car frame and there was no need to drill. I tow a 5x8 utility trailer and a double jetski trailer with it. Have had no issues at all. Would reccomend to anyone looking at a hitch for a 2016 Kia Soul.

I wasn't sure it was going to be as easy as the videos and reviews I checked out before hand, but the installation was easy. I am only using the hitch for a bike rack. I am very satified with the hitch.

Although I was not able to do the install myself, my mechanic informed me that the hitch was the best made and easiest to install hitch he has ever encountered. His knowledge and tools permitted him to install the hitch in just over 35 minutes without any additional work- the hitch snapped in place perfectly and the supplied hardware was all it took to have me back on the road with any hassle! Looking forward to purchasing a bike rack in the very near future from etrailer.com as I have no reservations about the quality of their products + nor the accuracy of the online description. WAY TO GO!!!!

Hitch was packaged very well. etrailer has excellent prices. I like how much information each product has along with photos and videos. Any one installing this may want to check how rusted the threads are on the car frame. My install was 30 minutes but 3 hours to get the rust out of the threads on my car frame. Small jacks or blocks of wood helps a ton to hold the hitch up while installing. Very happy with my order.

The trailer hitch receiver is a perfect fit. The instructions were tiered to least amount of preparation to making the installation easier. I chose the full process and it took about an hour working by myself. The hitch is well made and inconspicuous on the vehicle. I suggest that instructions should include a bolt tightening sequence that begins with installing the 2 vertical bolts first but leaving them loose. Then installing the horizontal bolts and torquing them to specs. first and finally torquing the vertical bolts. This allows the hitch to position itself on the slotted opening and the horizontal bolts to tightly fit to the car frame.

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2016 Kia Soul
    Each of the three hitches, EcoHitch # 306-X7326, Draw-Tite # 24985 and Curt # C11419, have different key features. They're all great hitches, but I'll give a brief summary of their pros and cons so you can decide which one best fits your needs. The EcoHitch # 306-X7326 has a 2" receiver. It still has the same towing capacity as the other hitches (2,000 lbs trailer weight) but it has a higher tongue weight capacity at 300 lbs and its 2 inch receiver might be more preferable if you have...

  • Fit of Curt Class I Hitch # C11419 on 2016 Kia Soul EV
    The Curt Class I hitch you referenced, part # C11419 is indeed a fit for your 2016 Soul EV. The receiver tube is unobstructed all the way through, it does not have a stop punched or welded into it that would prevent a Class II rated accessory from being used, so it will be crucial that you are always aware of the tongue weight (downward force) that you'll be applying to the hitch. The Curt # C11419 has a 200 lb tongue weight capacity, which means that the weight of the rack plus the weight...

  • Is Brake Controller Needed to Activate Trailer Brakes if it Has Surge Brakes
    Since you have surge brakes on your trailer and the trailer wiring is connecting between the two just fine you'd be totally set most likely. Only thing I would check is try to back the trailer up and see if the brakes lock up. If not, you are totally fine. If they do you need to activate the reverse light circuit of your 7-way. Your trailer would have a reverse lockout solenoid that activates when the vehicle is in reverse to allow the trailer to backup without the brakes locking up.

  • Visibility of Trailer Hitch Installed on 2014 Kia Soul
    We do indeed have a photo provided from Curt showing their # C11419 installed on a second-generation Kia Soul. As you can see, the only portion of the hitch that's visible from eye level at the rear of the vehicle is the receiver opening, almost all of the crossbar is concealed by the bumper. Draw-Tite has # 24915 which would also be largely concealed behind the bumper. Both hitches have the same weight rating, and would install in the same manner. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite.

  • How to Carry Electric Bikes With 2010 Toyota Prius & 2018 Kia Soul
    Ok, we can get either your 2010 Toyota Prius or 2018 Kia Soul set up to carry electric bikes, but you are correct that there isn't an option for a Class II, 1-1/4 inch hitch for either vehicle.
