Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.

Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.

In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario. Technical Support

At we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

This fully welded, corrosion-resistant vehicle trailer hitch receiver is perfect for your light-duty towing needs. Draw-Tite's Tested Tough guarantee ensures that this hitch exceeds industry standards. Drawbar sold separately.


This hitch works well for what it is; however, if I’m being picky, there are definitely some frustrating things about it.

I purchased this to use with a hitch mounted bike rack on a Nissan Altima. The hitch is actually so low profile that it is sticks too far up under the car. This make it to where my bike hitch can’t fold up while on the car; otherwise, it runs into the bumper on the back of the car.

I also find that the hitch hangs a little too low. The hitch scrapes all over the place. I’ve gotten used to it, so now I just know to take almost every incline at a diagonal. However, with the bike rack on the hitch, it will scrape on just about anything that isn’t flat ground.

The hitch works and is sturdy and hasn’t caused any issues, but I think it could have been designed a little better for practical uses.

2013 Nissan Altima

I bought the DrawTite for my son's Altima. I already had a Yakima bike rack for it. The install is not easy and I had a friend put it in as it does require the exhaust system to come off and drilling in the trunk. But once in it seems to be great. The Yakima fits in perfectly and the trunk even opens with it in the upright position, a real plus when traveling. Looking forward to many happy miles with it.

Dan O.


Product has been working fine. Do not use it all that often but Ive had no problems with it whatsoever.

2011 Nissan Altima

1 year after purchase, I am mostly happy with this receiver. It was a pain to install, mainly due to the design of my 2011 Altima, but I knew that going in thanks to the instructions and videos on etrailer. My only hesitation to give it 5 stars is the surface rust inside the receiver tube. I'm not sure how, but it seems like they could figure out a way to make that look better for longer. However, the hitch has worked perfectly in the light towing (~600lb) I do.

Unfortunately, due to the metal on metal contact that the finish on the interior of the receiver tube experiences, theres really not much that could be done to prevent the finish from being abraded. A thin coat of grease on the shank of the ballmount or hitch mounted accessory will be the best bet to provide some protection.

2017 Nissan Altima

The product is well constructed and it was very easy to install on my 2017 Nissan Altima I will definitely recommend to friends and family thanks etrailer for having this product.



The hitch is working perfectly I’ve been up and down the road on long trips countless times and this hitch from etrailer is a champion on the road with no issues whatsoever great product will recommend to anyone thanks again etrailer for having this product and a five star

2013 Nissan Altima

Service from etrailer and product quality are both great! Installed easily, a perfect fit on the car, very happy. My only issue is the damage that happened in shipping. The hitch had no padding or packing materials in the box to secure the hitch inside the box. As a result it slid freely inside the box punching holes through the cardboard and chipping paint off. These impacts also loosened the parts inside scratching up the bar as seen in my pictures near where I installed the trailer light plug. A little bubble wrap, wadded paper, or foam could have prevented the damage completely. The cardboard box was not dented, other then the holes punched from the inside out by the hitch parts as they slid and slammed into the sides of the box.


Great product no major issues. Only minor issue is that it's a very tight fit for my 1 1/4in bike rack. Makes taking on and off a hassle so I leave it on all riding season and only take off during winter months.


A++ product at great price and fast shipping, it's a one stop shop all you need in one box and with the video makes it easy to install on my 2015 nissan altima with the bolts thru the trunk and didn't even to remove the mufflers by sliding the hitch in one side and pushing up the other end while pulling the one muffler to one side I was able to install quicker and the plug and play wires makes it easy than trying to decode wires. Thank-you.

2012 Nissan Altima

The hitch fit my 2012 Altima perfectly and was a breeze to install on my own. It works great with my bikerack.

The only issue I had was removing my muflers at the clamps which were rusted tight. I ended up taking the car to a shop to heat and remove them for me. I wasn’t able to heat them enough outside when it was windy and below freezing.


I am very happy with the products I ordered and installed on my vehicle. I installed the hitch with help from the online video. It took about 2 hours, I didnt have the use of a lift. The bike rack that I ordered worked perfectly with the hitch. I was also impressed with the customer service that provided when I was trying to make a decision on which product to purchase.

2019 Nissan Altima

Excellent service product. The packaging was first rate and arrived in days. The hitch went on just like in the video.

2015 Nissan Altima

I installed this on my 2015 Nissan Altima. I plan on pulling my jetski with it. So far everything looks great. The hitch is great quality.


Good design for 20011 Maxima. Requires removing rear tailpipe to access screw mounting area. Does not utilize any existing body holes so requires some ingenuity for good placement.



2017 Nissan Altima

Easy install. Took about an hour if you are mechanically inclined. A small floor jack is your best bet for the install. It will hold the rack in place while you mark the holes and install.


Did not receive bolts or steel plate for inside truck.

Etrailer Expert

Jenny N.


Often the hardware is taped inside the receiver tube. I will have our Customer Service team contact you in case it is not there.


Just installed was pretty simpl


This thing was a breeze to install. Me and my brother in law did the install in 30 minutes. It is now installed on my dad’s 2007 Altima and he is so excited to tow his boat with it (when it stops raining). Great product, easy installation and fast shipping. Thank you!

2017 Nissan Maxima

Installation was easy except for the bolts snapping off the muffler.


I ordered the correct product and it doesn’t fit, Its costing me extra labor at the shop and they’re attaching it in a less secure place and having to drill it into the car. Circumstantially I do not have time to return this product but I am extremely dissatisfied.

2013 Nissan Altima

Super simple install process if you're at all mechanically inclined. I had it installed on my Altima in under 30 minutes, start to finish.

One word of advice: Help is not required, but strongly encouraged. The hardest part is marking the hole locations, and that is MUCH easier with a second person to hold the hitch up while you mark

Another suggestion: You're going to want an impact wrench. There isn't a lot of clearance to wrench the bolts down, and you want that as tight as you can get it for stability. I'm sure it's doable without, but you aren't going to have a great time


This is the third trailer hitch I have purchased from Each one has arrived in a very timely manner with no missing parts and nothing damaged. Prior to my purchases I have viewed the installation videos which were very helpful. The written installation instructions that accompanied each trailer hitch were complete and easy to understand. The wiring harnesses were a perfect match to each vehicle.

Mike W.


The hitch and wiring harness have worked without fault. I am quite happy with the product a year later.


The hitch worked grate. Now I can pull my ATV. The installation instruction seemed to be understandable. I had it all done with in an hour. Now I just need to hook up the trailer lights. Its to bad that there is no snap in wiring at the tell lights. The plugs are right there.

Allan T.


As you know, I put that hitch on my Altama small car...the hitch works really well. But the car hits bottom some times. The hitch has not been hurt yet. I pull my ATV with it...Lots of fun. So there you have it. Big Al :O

2010 Nissan Maxima

After a year on my 2010 Nissan Maxima, my hitch is still one of the best modifications. It has allowed me to safely trailer my Sportbike on several occasions. The hitch has also let me use my car to transport a small trailer and pick up a living room table and chairs that I found online.
Definitely glad I got it.



Still Great

2013 Nissan Altima

Excellent product & service. The install was straightforward & has proven sturdy after a year's use. etrailer's video installation advice was generous and tailored to our vehicle. Just what we needed to attach our bike rack and small trailer to our 2013 Nissan Altima.



Still great - very useful addition to our vehicle as it accommodates a bike rack and a small trailer.


the hitch itself was easy to install. the wiring not so much. needed a better video on how to install the wiring. also it wasn't long enough and we had to purchase more from a local auto parts store.

however, all in all i would definitely recommend the hitch!

  • Troubleshooting Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver 24796 Not Fitting 2012 Nissan Altima
    The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24796 you purchased is a confirmed fit for your 2012 Nissan Altima. What more than likely happened is the hitch was slightly deformed due to being flexed during shipping. This is a pretty common issue and you can correct this by following the steps listed in the included help article. If you follow these steps and the hitch still does not fit please let me know.

  • Will the Draw-Tite for the 2013 Nissan Altima fit the 4 Cylinder Models Also
    I spoke to my contact at Draw-Tite and he said that the hitch # 24796 can be used on the 2013 Nissan Altima 4 cylinder or 6 cylinder as long as it is a sedan. However, if your owners manual says that the 4-cylinder models should not have hitches installed on them then you should go with their recommendation so as not to void your warranty.

  • Difference In Installation Of Trailer Hitch On 2011 Nissan Altima Sedan And Coupe
    The installation for hitches on the 2011 Altima has quite a lot of difference between the sedan and the coupe models. I will use the Draw-Tite trailer hitches for an example. For the Sedan, the hitch I recommend is part # 24796. When installing this hitch you have to place the hitch against the bottom of the vehicle and center punch the mounting hole positions. Then you drill through the bottom of the trunk. On the hitch that is used for the Coupe model, part # 24801, the hitch just...

  • Can the Safety Tab Be Removed on Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2008 Nissan Altima
    The tab on the inside of the trailer hitch receiver for your 2008 Nissan Altima is meant to ensure that the user only uses Class I rated accessories in the hitch. As you can see in the attached photo. This is more of a safety precaution as Class I receivers like # 24796 cannot handle much weight especially if that weight is sticking out further from the receiver. It could damaged the receiver and ultimately damage your accessory (in this case your bike rack and bike). To answer your...

    Normally, hitches are designed to fit a specific vehicle and will not work on another vehicle, especially those manufactured by a different company, such as your Hyundai and the 2014 Nissan Altima.

  • Is the Draw Tite Hitch 24796 Confirmed as a fit for the 2016 Nissan Maxima
    Before any of our hitch manufacturers will release a fit for a vehicle they always test fit to be certain. Especially Draw Tite and Hidden Hitch.

    I had something similar happen with a cargo carrier recently. I installed it in the hitch and noticed it was difficult to slide in, but once it was in there it was not wanting to come out. I was able to fit myself between the rack and the vehicle and push hard while wiggling it back and forth and it came out. My next idea if that didn't work was attach a strap to the hitch of a different vehicle and have the other vehicle pull it out. Once I got it out I took a grinder and removed the powdercoat...
