With some contorting, I was able to install this hitch by myself in about 45 minutes. The hitch matched the pre-threaded frame holes on my Mazda nicely. I just hand-tightened the (6) bolts and then torqued them all down. Another Mazda CX-9 reviewer had to temporarily remove some boxes that got in the way of their installation. While the space to tighten the bolts is confined, I did not find this necessary. I was able to get by with a low profile ratchet and an open-end wrench.
