Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitches & Towing

Built for Life

Hidden Hitch is another of Cequent’s many brand identities in the towing industry. In the hitch-building business since 1968, Hidden Hitch pioneered the round-tube style hitch in 1984, making a line of hitches that looked less industrial on modern cars and SUVS than everyone else’s square-tube versions. With Cequent’s industry-wide expertise and product development resources, they’ll continue to develop products that change the industry.

Does your trailer use a 2-wire style of tail/brake/turn light, like most do? Then if your vehicle has separate bulbs for tail, brake and turn signals as many late-model cars and trucks do, you’ll need a converter to make the right bulbs on the trailer light up when they’re supposed to. Hidden Hitch also has T-connectors to make the installation of a hitch connector a simple plug-in operation that doesn’t involve splicing.

Pick and choose from not only a receiver-style hitch that fits your vehicle and is rated to tow a trailer that’s of the correct max weight for it, but a wide assortment of ball mounts and balls. It’s often necessary to spec a ball mount with rise or drop, to make the trailer ride in a level attitude behind a truck with a much higher receiver opening, or a car with a much lower one. With three different ball sizes with different shank sizes, and five different weight classes, it’s not one-size-fits-all. And a poor choice in setting up a trailer can result in a dangerous, evil-handling setup.

Hidden Hitch has been in the trailer hitch/towing industry since 1968, leading the industry with innovations like the round-tube receiver hitch in 1984 and introducing the receiver-mounted bike carrier in 1988. They pioneered the use of removable receiver hitch drawbars that allow you to remove the ball from your vehicle when it’s not needed, a concept that culminated in the Invisi-hitch, which is completely unnoticeable when the ball mount is removed.

Look in the Hidden Hitch catalog for hitch balls in every conceivable size and weight class rating, as well as receiver tube covers, adapters to change receiver sizes up or down, and steps to plug into the receiver. Front-mount receivers to attach steps, license plate frames and winches. Hidden hitch is also a great source for unfinished receiver tubes in all three sizes for fabricating your own hitch from scratch.

Towing a trailer of any size or weight puts demands on the tow vehicle. Hidden Hitch has upgrades like extra-wide towing mirrors, backup cameras (great for solo hookups) and transmission coolers. They’re also a good source for more mundane items like bungees, tow straps, cable and hitch locks and other cargo management parts.

Trailer Hitch Installed in a Snap!
2012 Toyota Prius
| Posted by | (Redding, CA)

I have a 2012 Prius C. Ended up being the easiest thing to add on to the Prius. The only thing that took a while was removing the plastic factory panel. Looks great and definitely hidden. Wouldn't recommend anything else.

2014 X1 Hidden Hitch
2014 BMW X1
| Posted by | (Durham, NC)

Overall the quality of this product is outstanding. The instructions are clear but there are a few things that are a must that have been left out of the instructions to get this on properly and professionally looking. 1. You must have a Dremel to cut off 1/3 of the top right bolt hole. This will not go up underneath the car without it being cut off. This is no big deal because it doesn't hurt the integrity of the hitch at all. Basically once you snip that little piece of metal off, just use the steel washer once its mounted and its just the same. 2. Have a power socket handy. There is zero room under the bumper so tightening it will be very difficult without it. This will be a two person job. Its a little heavy :) Overall, I would purchase this product again.

Hidden Hitch on 2011 Scion TC
2014 Scion tC
| Posted by | (Pittsburgh, PA)

The hitch installed easily with four bolts. ( You can also reinstall the cars rear tow bar hanger if you want to.) It is truly hidden and the receiver does not extend past the cars length. The hitch does fit very snug against the bottom of the bumper, but not enough to cause a visible bulge in the facial plastic. I can now use my tow hitch bike carrier without losing the sporty look of the car!

The hitch went on very easily, with all the parts supplied. It looks great on my Mazda 5 and tucks up nicely under the rear bumper.
