Stealth Hitch - nits and picks

Picks: solidly built
Nits: The location to attach safety chains for a trailer are very difficult to attach. They are located on the hitch underneath the auto. You need to get down on your knees and look under the auto to attach. In addition because they are further from a normal trailer you almost certainly have to lengthen your current chains because they wont reach. Using straps to cinch down a bicycle rubs against the fender and are hard to cinch down. I started looking at other hitches and found 100% they are visible as you stand behind the auto.

The Model X factory hitch has the same issue. So I added a link that is permanently attached on each side of the hitch to make it easier to attach the safety chains.
