Replacement Installation Hardware for Valley Hitch 82580 for 2005 Honda Element


So I have a Valley hitch to fit a 2005 Honda Element. Hitch #82580. Problem is, I dont have any of the mounting hardware. From what I understand the company went out of business which is made finding anything rather difficult. I was wondering if by chance you had any of the hardware for this hitch? Thank you for your time.


Helpful Expert Reply:

You are correct that Valley did go out of business. But since we do offer other hitch brands for your 2005 Honda Element you can use a hardware kit for one of those hitch products.

You will want to verify the size of the hitch receiver opening; it will be either a 1-1/4-inch Class I or a 2-inch Class III size hitch. You need to use hardware for the class of hitch you have to ensure it has the required capacity. All currently-available hitches for your car are shown on the linked page.

What I suggest is comparing your Valley hitch to those shown. Select the hitch size/class you have and use the hardware for the hitch nearest in design. What you want to do is order part # RHK and on that item's page enter the brand and part number for the hitch of the correct class that is closest in design to yours.

You will note that the two different Class I hitches we have, Curt # C11700 and Draw-Tite # 24720, have very different designs, as do the two Class III hitches # 75659 and # 13574. Use the hardware kit and follow the install instructions for the hitch closest in design to yours.
