Difference Between Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite Hitch for 2006 Acura TSX

Question:

The description says that this hitch requires drilling, however the video is the same as part # 24768 - also, I do not see a visual difference between the two, can you please provide additional photos or info? what makes it hidden?

Expert Reply:

The Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receier # 60831 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2006 Acura TSX. When installing the hitch on the vehicle you may just need to enlarge the access holes by drilling so that they accept the included 3/16 x 1.00 x 2.00 block. This is the only drilling that would be needed during installation.

The Hidden Hitch # 60831 and the Draw-Tite Hitch # 24768 that you also mentioned are actually identical. The same parent company owns both brand names and the Hidden Hitch models are being phased out for the Draw-Tite. The Draw-Tite units will soon be the only option. Hidden Hitch is simply the brand name and doesn't actually refer to a difference in appearance when it's installed on your vehicle.

The nice thing with the Hidden Hitch model though is that it does also come with a drawbar/ball mount along with the needed pin and clip. I have attached an installation video that you can use for reference and the written installation instructions that you can look through.
