If this is the first time for you are trying to install a hitch you may feel a little overwhelmed. Before getting all stressed, bear in mind that it is not a hard task and although there are professionals that can do the job for you, many people have had success the DIY way as well. Each hitch comes with its own set of easy to follow instructions and there are usually tips provided to make the installation a breeze. All you need to do is read the instructions pertaining to Ford Escape trailer hitches and match all the parts to the names. Now look at the diagram and start putting the parts in place. Many hitches are also accompanied by a template, which helps you align the holes correctly and assures you that you purchased the proper size of hitch.
When installing the Ford Escape trailer hitch, it might be necessary to jack the rear up a little as this will serve to enhance the working space. It might become necessary to loosen the rear bumper or even the exhaust system. Just remember whatever bolts are loosened will need to be tightened once the hitch is in place. The hitch might come with some wires. These will need to be installed properly. But this is also not a problem as the manual will show exact details on how the wires need to go. The wires are for making sure the brake lights and turn signals on the trailer work properly. Handymen who love to modify must refrain in case of hitches because each hitch is designed precisely. Therefore even a slight modification would mean that there is a chance of the hitch failing while cruising down the highway. Ready to tow a trailer on your Ford Escape?

"The hitch is great. It was easy to install. It provided sufficient bolts to accommodate two types of vehicles, which was initially confusing in that I thought they hadn't sent the proper bolts. The wire to hold the bolt and washer are great and really help. I think it took just over an hour."

"When they say no drill, they mean it. They included Everything needed to do the installation, except the socket wrench! This was a great buy! Furthermore, I ordered this first from a competitor only to find out a few days later it was out of stock and I needed to wait a month or two. I got this so fast after I ordered... it was incredible!"
