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 that the adapter will decrease the hitch's tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. So at the most your tongue weight will be 100 pounds. And the weight of the load extender will take up some of this. So you'll need to be careful you're not overloading the hitch.

The pin and clips # PC2 and # PC3 are what you need as well.
