Trailer Hitch for 2009 Toyota RAV4

I'm in the market for a trailer hitch for my 2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport. My plan is to obtain the part and install it myself. I'm leaning towards the genuine article, but will consider after-market parts if I can be convinced that the risk is minimal. The primary use will be to hold a bicycle rack. The engine is only a four cylinder, so I don't plan on doing any serious hauling. Does anyone have any recommendations?

My limit is $200.

I know that I want square tubing, but I'll have to nail down the size. I'd really like something to which I can attach a cable lock.

Have you heard of a company named "Curt?"

Okay! Great! While cost is a consideration, I don't want to buy anything that will give me grief several months down the road. Also - and don't laugh - I noticed that round versus square tubing has nothing to do with the shape of the receiver. Hey, that's why I come to the experts! By the way, can anyone tell me what a "hidden hitch" is?
Hidden Hitch is another manufacturer of hitches.
