Spacer Block and Bolt Size for Trailer Hitch 75270

Question:

Hi! We are installing the DrawTite Class III hitch #75270 on our 2008 Honda Odyssey, and while cleaning the hitch weld nuts, I discovered that 1 of the 6 is loose on the inside of the frame - no longer connected. I have watched your video about fishing out the loose nut and replacing with the rectangular plate and carriage bolt/nut combo, and it appears that this will work with my vehicle. My question is: what size plate and bolt/washer/nut do I need for my Odyssey? The video specifies a 3x1 inch plate and 1/2 x 1.75 inch inch bolt/washer combo, but Im not sure if this was specific to the vehicle in the video. Are these the correct sizes for my 2008 Odyssey? And do you carry the necessary parts and bolt leader? Thanks!

Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite Hitch # 75270 that you are installing on your 2008 Honda Odyssey uses M12 X 1.25 X 35mm bolts and 1/4“ X 1-1/2“ X 2” spacer blocks and you can get replacement hardware for this at part # RHK. We do not have these parts available individually but you should be able to source them at a local hardware or auto parts store.

Question:

My main question is whether the size of the replacement washer/bolt/nut combo is universal to most vehicles or specific to the one in the video, i.e. would it work on my 2008 Honda Odyssey. Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the clarification and yes, you can use the same hardware as in the video to install trailer hitch # 75270.

What you can use is Weld Nut Replacement Kit for Hitch Installation - 1/2" Bolt WELDNUT-REPAIR, which includes a 3" long spacer block, 1/2" hex nut, 1/2" carriage bolt, 1/2" conical toothed washer and 1/2" bolt leader.
