Could Someone with OEM Rear Hitch installed please help?

Thinking of purchasing this rack for my 2 ebikes Double eBike / Bicycle Carrier . It's light (only 27lbs) and can hold up to 200lbs (important for hauling ebikes).

I'm getting my hitch installed this weekend by Tesla so I can't check myself, but could someone with the OEM hitch please help me figure out if the pinhole of the hitch is equal to or less than 4-1/2” from pin hole to outside edge of bumper? Need to know this because if its more than 4-1/2" then I need to have the manufacturer make an adjustment to the rack receiver before ordering.

Want to order this thing ASAP for a trip coming up and if I wait for the weekend it might not come up in time.

Thanks!
 
Here's 2 pics measuring from center of pin hole. It's just less than 4.5 inches. One odd thing about the hitch rating is that it has a different rating for towing vs a bike rack. 350 lbs for towing and 160lbs for bike rack, supposedly vertical stress while in motion.
