It looks as if the installer feeds thin guide wire through the holes in the existing frame and then wraps the guide through the washer and ties it around the bolt. Then he pulls the wire back through the frame using a pen/pencil or punch to guide the bolt straight so that it goes back through the existing holes. Then he unties the wire. (You can see this on a large monitor at the full screen 1080 HD setting. You might want to use the "stop" button so you can see him tie the wire around the bolt.) This is necessary because of the full box frame, so there is no way to drop the washer and bolt into the hole without a guide wire.WattsUp wrote:This looks really cool, but...what was all the fiddling around with what looked like "strings" at the beginning?
I also don't quite understand what the product information means when it says "completely stealth and hidden when not in use".
Well, maybe not "completely stealth," but if you look at the hitch receiver at a normal upright angle, it does actually come out nearly flush with the very bottom of the under-bumper trim. You might be able to see it if you were in another car behind the FFE, but even then, it's very hard to see the bottom of the under-bumper trim. You would not be able to see it if you were walking behind the FFE. Get behind your FFE and see if you can find the bottom of the under-bumper trim. This is where the hitch receiver box would be placed.
And yes, it looks like they need to do a bit of web page editing and remove the duplicate info.
