The hitch was easy to install, and is well hidden -- but I have a couple suggestions and warnings. First, the hitch I received is for Class I towing. This is not clear, and I accentially purchased a Class III ball mount (which was easily returned through AutoAnything). Second, the hitch requires a U-bolt to connect it to the tow-hook on my Honda Element. I could not find a U-bolt that would work, so I had to devise another solution. In my opinion, mounting hardware should be supplied with the unit. Finally, the hitch only uses two of the four holes available in the frame for a hitch. Another inch of steel on each side of the hitch's mounting frame would allow for four mounting bolts and make for a stronger installation.
