      What's included in each Mercedes GLK package?

      Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package and a combo package with tow and rack options. The same cross beam and vertical latch block are used on all packages so if you need to upgrade to tow later you can with the Mercedes GLK Conversion Package.

      The Mercedes GLK hitch Rack Package comes with standard 2" detachable rack receiver that accepts current versions of bike racks, ski racks, cargo platforms, and other square tube accessories.  A wiring harness is not required if rack connections are the customers only application.

      The Mercedes GLK Combo Hitch Package uses a detachable ball mount that operates differently than a typical square tube receiver hitch. When inserted into the stainless-steel receiver block, a tight connection is created to the vehicle frame, eliminating the jerking and banging associated with square tube receivers type hitches during starts and stops.  This solid connection creates less wear and tear on the vehicle transmission and is a more pleasurable ride for the passengers.

      Stealth Wiring Harness

      Our "Stealth" wiring harness and controller is specifically designed to monitor and duplicate the tail light functions.  Drawing current from the tail light circuits can cause vehicle faults, especially on European vehicles.  Our controller draws current directly from the battery to eliminate this issue. For vehicles with numerous trailer lights, Stealth harnesses are designed to increase the current capacity from the typical 5-amp solid state limitation to a full 20 amps.

        Hitch is very nice, well made, pretty straightforward to install. Final installation is indeed stealthy. I do have a couple of comments about the installation. One point about removing bumper is that directly under the tail lights are a crushable plastic mounting part. A guy that has a video on YouTube stated you have to remove the two nuts that hold this on to remove the bumper which is very difficult because this is mounted to the car prior to the bumper going on. This is not true as the bumper will separate from the part, but there are 4 or 5 fingers that have to be released for the bumper to come off. Not impossible, but I think they are designed to not come apart once assembled. I used a large screw driver that I twisted to lift the plastic while pressing the finger down until the lip disengaged. Second recommendation is the power source. Instructions require running a wire underneath the full length of the car and attaching to the battery. The GLK has a secondary fuse block under the rear floor that has numerous open fuse slots. I suggest utilizing one of those with a fuse tap for the power. Fuse 89 is for the factory trailer hitch.

        Best 2" Hitch for Mercedes GLK AND It Vanishes

        Our GLK factory 1.25" hitch couldn't handle the larger rack required to carry our Cycletes. Tried aftermarket 2" hitches and was disappointed with quality, fit and function UNTIL we found the Stealth Hitch. Now we have a solid, level 2" hitch that works perfectly carrying our Cycletes. The Stealth feature was a welcome bonus as the 2" does look a bit ungainly when not carrying our Cycletes. To top it off the product is made in USA by a responsive company shipping directly giving those that choose to buy one excellent value! Thanks Steve - Job well done!
