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.


etrailer.com Technical Support

At etrailer.com 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.

Took a few days to ship after confirmation. Arrived with paint chipped off and scratched up. Must have been from previous shipping, etrailer box was in great condition. etrailer.com sticker was put on upsidedown. Other than a little touch up, product is serving it's purpose.

Awesome product, very durable and easy install. I have been using it primarily for a bike rack and could not be happier. The only visible part of the hitch is the receiver itself. Does not impact ground clearance much at all like other hitches.

If your car is older, you will definitely want to run the bolts into the holes before trying to install the hitch to make sure your threads aren’t rusted. In my case, I needed to purchase a thread tap to allow the bolts to easily screw in. This was a simple process and only took about 20 minutes.

2003 Toyota Matrix

I recently decided to buy a trailer hitch for my 2003 Toyota Matrix XR. After searching everywhere, and a million phone calls, I finally found exactly what I was looking for on etrailer.com. I found the customer service to be some of the best I have ever dealt with. I was even contacted personally by Cathy T to help answer some questions I had about my purchase. I received my order in about a week. The installation required very little mechanical knowledge. had to tap the rusty bolt holes in the frame of my car, but after that it was very simple to install. Along with the plug and play wiring harness I ordered, the total installation time took well under an hour, and I was literally towing my trailer home an hour later. Id highly recommend etrailer for the quality of product for the price, and the excellent customer service.

2009 Pontiac Vibe

Here are the pictures of the hitch just installed this morning on our 2009 Pontiac Vibe. The hitch was very easy to install and we're very satisfied with the quality. Even at 80 years of age, I was able to do the majority of the wiring myself, but did have my step-son do the last wire that had to go underneath and up to the battery. He also bolted on the hitch. He is a mechanic by trade and was impressed with the ease with which the hitch fit and bolted up. All in all, I am very pleased with this purchase and will recommend your company to others.




by:

Great customer service. Ordering was a breeze. Product was packed and shipped the following morning after placing the order. Received an email with tracking information and my hitch arrived on time. Installation was a breeze. If you’re not very mechanically inclined, etrailer provides great instructional videos which make installation really easy. Would definitely recommend etrailer to anyone interested in purchasing a hitch and accessories.




by:
2009 Toyota Matrix

Very quick delivery, easy to follow installation video and a quality product. What more could you ask for?




by:
2009 Toyota Matrix

It took me about 2.5 hours to bolt on and torque the towbar hardware. I had a new knee installed 11 weeks ago, so I am still a little slow. Everything fit perfectly so I had no difficulty. I didn't install the wiring harness: too many body panels to remove, and that power wire all the way to the battery is daunting. I'm thinking a nice warm spring day.

2005 BMW X3

Again, never question the internet, I have a 2005 Matrix RS, so the age of the car should of told me to buy a tap to tap the frame rails, I didn't buy one and had to wait a week to install because you cant get that M12 x 1.25 tap locally. Other than that it all went very well. The 24812 does make you trim the fascia a bit and the other places too. But I prefer that because the hitch is off the ground more. From the install instructions (Note: Toyota Matrix XRS & XR Sport models have added center fascia that must be removed for hitch installation) Heather at etrailer is the best, I ordered 3 of these by mistake and she cleared it up and got me a discount to boot. Thanks Heather. I will be coming back to etrailer for my X3 hitch, little bit bigger job. I included a picture and that scratch on my bumper was already there.
Thanks to my Daughter!!!

I used this hitch on my 2009 Pontiac Vibe for a hitch-mounted Yakama bike rack. The receiver is barely noticeable and snugs up close to the underside of the bumper. There have been zero issues. Just what you want with a receiver, out of sight and out of mind when not in use.




by:
2003 Pontiac Vibe

Very easy installation on my 2003 Vibe GT. Actual installation was less than 30 min, I spend more time collecting my tools and getting the car up onto the ramps than I did installing the hitch. My southern vehicle did not have any corrosion issues with the bolt holes, 30 sec on each with a wire brush in my drill cleaned them out just fine. The receiver sticks out a bit farther under the bumper than I would have liked, but it does not cause any problems for me.




by:
2006 Toyota Matrix

Easier to install than I though 2006 Toyota Matrix XR.
Didn't have to jack it up to install.
Also installed the T-One wiring harness only tool needed is a drill with a Philips #2 for the ground wire

Had to remove the lower trim in the back but it looks like it won't be missed. bolts for it are 10mm.




by:
2007 Pontiac Vibe

Great product and price. It took awile to install as the car was nine years old and the welded in nuts were a little corroded and filled with road dirt. Once cleaned out the hitch installed in just a few minutes. I could not be happier with the finished product unless the receiver could have been a 2" model to fit my bike rack. A 1 1/4 to 2" receiver was purchased after market.




by:

This is the second e-trailer hitch that I have purchase and installed. Hitch came with all required parts and was installed in about two hours. Expanded time on install was caused by the piece that had to be removed prior to install. Hitch itself took about 1/2 hour to install. Complete instruction were included as to how to install. Love these products. With minor modification put the center back on.




by:
2007 Toyota Matrix

Very easy to install. The only "specialty" tool need is a torque wrench.92 lb ft for all six. But only one down side. The mount for the hitch contacts the bumper (shown in photos). But I can trim the pices of bumper off that it touches. Only reason it not five stars. Going on vacation soon and wanted to bring the bikes along.




by:
2004 Toyota Matrix

Installation was fairly easy. The hitch will fit the XR model after removing the rear spoiler. Hitch fit correctly but came with bolts that were one size too large. I would have left the Draw Tight and etrailer stickers on the hitch but they were put on crooked so I peeled them both off. Overall good product and great experience with etrailer.


Comments
Rather than sending the wrong hardware, what typically happens is that the nuts welded into the frame members get clogged up with road debris and corrosion, which makes the installation hardware difficult to install. The hitch should have arrived with M12x1.25x40mm bolts. If the threads were severely corroded, a thread tap is recommended to clean them. Id urge you to confirm that youve used the correctly sized hardware.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 06/20/2019


by:

Hitch fit well. Had to clean out threaded nuts on vehicle. Lots of PB Blaster. How about sending a little brush with the hitches to clean threads? Hard to find a round brush around here.

2006 Ford Focus

I have bought 2 tow bars from etrailer.com, one for my 2006 Ford Focus from like 5 years ago, and another for my 2004 Pontiac Vibe this past fall. Both arrived on time and were super simple to install. I had trouble installing my Pontiac Vibe tow bar, but that was because the mounting holes on my car were a bit rusted over. I called customer support who walked me through cleaning those out, and I got it installed right away then. Their wiring harnesses are also super easy to install and the directions are clear and concise. I highly recommend etrailer.com for any towing bar and wire harness needs. I now can tow my sailboat wherever I want to go!

Draw tote #24812.installed on 2010 matrix s.bolted right on.no facia trimming needed on s model .cleared exhaust and muffler.very happy! BUT!the bolt threads had paint and grime and needed to be oiled and scrubbed with a wire brush.lucky for me no rust,Alabama climate!




by:
2010 Pontiac Vibe

I purchased a hitch and wire harness for my 2010 Pontiac Vibe from your company and couldn't be more delighted with the product and easy installation.
I'm 64 years old and had no problems at all.( I did view the installation video ) I believe I spend more time running the power from the battery than the hitch or harness.
Everything works great and because of the harness plugs ( not crimp on connectors ) I expect no future problems.
In this world, It's not to often the advertising matches the product.
Your company is the exception!!! Keep up the good work.
Great products and honest representation. Thank you!!!!

Pontiac Vibe

After dealing with etrailer, I Would never purchase a hitch elsewhere. Customer service is always on point, and shipping was fast and free! The hitch install was a breeze, only taking about ten minutes to bolt up, and has been a great road trip addition for my Pontiac Vibe now that I can haul bikes. I have since purchased another hitch and trailer brake setup for my truck from etrailer, and couldn't be happier. Thanks!




by:
2010 Pontiac Vibe

Installation took less than 10 minutes thanks to the 2007 Vibe having pre-drilled and threaded holes for the hitch.

Installed easily and still looks great after a year on the car. (05 Pontiac Vibe) Have only towed small amounts with it, but it is also a fantastic tie down point for my roof top canoe.




by:
2003 Toyota Matrix

2003 Matrix XR The hitch was delivered quickly and it installed easily as described. I had to tap the weld nuts on the frame prior to installation.

The edges of the hitch push slightly on the molded plastic fascia of the bumper but no trimming of the bumper was required.

Looking forward to getting a hitch-mounted bike rack!

Im planning to buy one to I got xrs what kind you got its ok not to trim spoiler thx

Rey: i have an XR. i think with the extra trim on the XRS you might have to cut the plastic - I cant be sure but I think so.cheers

I ordered my trailer hitch on Sunday and it was delivered on Thursday. After cleaning the rust out of the mounting holes on the frame rails I installed the hitch. Installation took only fifteen minutes. My first time dealing with etrailer.com. It will not be my last. Very satisfied.

Unbelievably Fantastic! Ordered Sun at 2pm, order shipped at 4:32pm, delivered Wed 2:02pm, installed by 4pm.

And it also contained the correct grade 8 washers, unlike the other hitch I ordered thru another site for our other SUZ.

FANTASTIC service! Great job!

  • Do I need to cut 2009 Toyota Matrix rear fascia with Hidden Hitch Class #60898?
    No, you will not. Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 24812, is the correct hitch for your 2009 Toyota Matrix. It fits all models including those with rear fascia, and does not require cutting of the fascia. Hidden Hitch Class I Trailer Hitch W/ Drawbar, part # 60965, fits only 2003-2008 Toyota Matrix models, so this would not work for your vehicle. This part is no longer available.

    According to my contacts at Draw-Tite, no fascia trimming or other modification is necessary for installing the Class I Receiver, part # 24812 on your 2010 Matrix S. On the XR and XRS models, trimming would be needed. To see the installation details, click on the provided link.

For reference the hitches we offer for your Vibe are linked at right. It sounds like you have a Class I hitch and a non-compatible Class II ball mount. Some Class I hitches have a stop inside the tube to prevent use of ball mounts that are not rated Class I. We do not...

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch part # 24812 Fit a 2003 Toyota Matrix XR
    The Draw Tite Hitch part # 24812 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2003 Toyota Matrix XR. The fit notes are a bit confusing, but the hitch fits the XR and non-XR models. The center fascia of the vehicle would need to be removed to install this hitch on the XR models.

  • Will Installation of Draw-Tite Hitch on 2006 Toyota Matrix XR Require Trimming the Bumper?
    All of the required hardware comes with the Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24812; no additional fastener or bolt kit will be necessary to install it on your 2006 Toyota Matrix. As for the bumper you do have the right idea. Only the XRS and XR Sport will require removal of some of the fascia because of the design of those models. I've added a link to a video showing an install on a 2009 Matrix to give you an idea of the process.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2006 Toyota Matrix
    All of the hitches for the 2006 Toyota Matrix XR are going to have about the same ground clearance. The best one in my opinion though is the Draw Tite part # 24812 as it does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack like the Curt hitch does. Since this hitch requires total removal of the rear fascia on the XR models that means the hitch would sit up the highest of the ones available.

  • My Draw Bar Will Not Fit All the Way Inside My Draw-Tite Hitch 24812 on my Pontiac Vibe
    The stop inside the hitch is not to force customers to purchase certain brand products, but to ensure that a Class II draw bar is not inserted into a Class I hitch. The Draw-Tite hitch you have, part # 24812, is a Class I hitch so if the welded stop inside is preventing the draw bar from going all the way in, you have a Class II drawbar. The recommended draw bar for this particular hitch is part # 3593. This draw bar will fit your hitch and will be at the proper height for trailers that...

    All of the hitches available to fit your vehicle are Class I hitches. The most common hitch, 24812, was one which fits with or without the rear fascia. The bolts for that hitch are M12 x 1.25 x 40mm. We offer replacement hardware kits part number RHK. I have included a link to the most popular hitch for you 2006 Matrix and to our hardware kits.

  • Trailer is not Level When Towing with Recommended Drawbar
    The instructions (see link below) state that the drawbar must be used in the rise position only, for your Pontiac Vibe. Drawbar 3593 has a rise of 2-1/8 inches, and only the drawbar recommended for a Class I hitch should be used. The manufacturer tests for crash safety on Class I and Class II hitches and their recommendation should be followed. If your drawbar is in the correct position and the trailer is still not level you may need to haul that particular trailer with another vehicle....

  • What Draw Bar Fits Draw-Tite Class I Hitch Part # 24812
    The Draw-Tite Class I hitch you were looking at, part # 24812 uses a 1-1/4 inch receiver. A class I hitch usually has a stop welded into the receiver tube or a detent punched into it to prevent a class II accessory from being used. If the draw bars you have were intended to be used in a class I hitch, they will work. Keep in mind, Draw-Tite recommends only using the part # 3593 draw bar. If the draw bars that you have measure any longer than 1-1/2 inches from the center of the pin hole...

It has a 1-1/4" opening which will work great for towing or hitch mounted accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers.

  • Do Bolts Need to Be Fished Into The Frame To Install Draw-Tite 24812 Hitch on 2009 Pontiac Vibe
    You won't need to fish any fasteners into the vehicle frame to install the Draw-Tite # 24812 Class I hitch on a 2009 Pontiac Vibe. The vehicle frame member has nuts already welded into place to accept the 6 M12 x 1.25 installation bolts, so the install is pretty simple.
