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.

The item was shipped on time, and specs were precisely as indicated on the website. The install perfectly followed the online instructional videos. All went smoothly. Hitch mounted bike rack is now installed, in use!



perfect still after one year


Clean fit. Great [online]videos demonstrating installation.



No complaints. Tows boat trailer without any problems.

2008 Subaru Impreza

2008 impreza 2.5i (non turbo). Great fit. No hole cutting required. Exhaust drop is best done with a helper. Video on [online] is very helpful. I recommend raising rear end with ramps or lift.

2012 Subaru Impreza

Fits snugly under bumper. I had it installed for me, so can't comment on the installation process. Just what I needed! Swagman bike rack and Draw Tite hitch are well made and very sturdy.

Subaru R.


All working well


Overall trailer hitch is as advertised. Good quality construction/ welds look good. Priced right. Shipped OK/ arrived no issues.
Installation was a bit tough. Videos were extremely helpful and a must to understand the order of bolt/ spacer block installation. The written instructions were of no help just to verify torque settings.
Two points of issue. The forward most bolt (one drivers side/ one passengers side) is juuuusssst that much too short. The kit supplied 4 -1.5" grade 5 carriage bolts but there really should be 2 - 1.75" or 2" bolts for those forward most holes because once you add the flat washer + the lock washer + the spacer in the frame and the spacer between the frame/ hitch it is impossible to screw the nut on. See attached pictures
Also, once installed and put to use, the Thule bike rack bolt that goes thru the hitch could not be tightened w/ the Thule wrench. The trailer hitch chain loops would not allow. A ratchet w/ 3/4" socket will need to be kept in the car for the Mrs to tighten when using the bike rack.
Hitch looks good and is installed and operational. Thank you

2015 Subaru Impreza

I haven't installed the part yet, however the part came in delivered with no packing material but the cardboard box to protect the part. The powder coat finish was chipped off in several areas so I'll have to touch up with paint to prevent any future rust. There was was also a blob of powder coat piled up in one area that won't be visible when installed, however it just looks unappealing.

Chevrolet Colorado

A solid hitch that the do-it-yourselfer can install. Bolted right onto the daughter's Subaru. Bike rack has never been out of the hitch since the install(the bike gets keep in the car sometimes for safety!) Very happy customer! Since college graduation last spring- car, hitch, bike rack, and bike have been from Maine to California with Utah and Colorado stops and now a job in Vermont! Everything works great! Thanks for a great product making people happy.

2017 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Product shipped fast but packaging could be a little better. The box was heavy duty but the hitch was put in there with no secondary protection so it arrived scuffed up from the cardboard. There were also a fair amount of chips in the paint but I run a powder coat shop and blasted it and applied a zinc primer anyways to withstand the salt and brines they put on our Minnesota roads in the winter so this didn't bother me. The factory powder coat on this was pretty average but I understand not everyone is willing to shell out extra cash for better paint and just want a functional hitch for a fair price. Installation was straightforward and a breeze. No need to drill any extra holes on my 2017 Crosstrek. Two people make mounting the hitch a lot easier so you don't knock the bolts back into the frame rail. Overall fit was spot on and should do me just fine.

2016 Subaru Crosstrek

Great hitch for Subaru Crosstrek. I use it to put a tray style bike rack on the back. Easy install, I had no issues with the length of the bolts as other customers have mentioned. Also did not have to drill out the holes in the frame on my 2016 Crosstrek. Included bolt fishing wire makes it a breeze to install. If you do it solo, might want to have a hydraulic jack to hold the hitch in place while you bolt it on. Have not tried it for towing, but it looks like it's built solid. Arrived super quickly from, highly recommend!


This worked wonderfully for our Subaru Crosstrek. I was able to install it myself and we have used it many times over the last year. We have a Thule bike rack that holds 2 bikes and we have taken our bikes to the river and beach several times.



This has held up great over the year. All the bolts are still tight and there is no rust so it still looks the same.

2017 Subaru Impreza

Excellent product. Fits perfect for the 2017 Impreza. Could be a bit more snug up to the bumper but very happy with it overall. The front bolt could be longer as others have mentioned. I would suggest installing the rear bolts first and then the front ones.
Also, wish the receiver stop was a bit further back so that my rack would sit closer to the bumper, but overall very happy with it.

2016 Subaru Impreza

Excellent installation kit and clear instructions. Online video very helpful companion to the installation sheet included in the package.


Great- easy to install Hitch allowing for my beloved bike rack!


Eases of install. took me a whole 45 mins. Definitely helps to have a second set of hands to hold the hitch in place. Highly recommend for a 2014 Impreza/crosstrek



Still solid as expected. Still able to use my bike rack or my basket on my Impreza hasn’t failed sold bike rack


Easy install, works great for my bike rack and even a small trailer


This hitch went on my daughter's car for her bike with no problems. I like the detailed information on your website and have made several purchases because of that.

2010 Subaru Impreza

Works great and was very easy to install


Easy to install and saved me few hundreds of dollars. I use for my bike rack.

Subaru XV Crosstrek

Perfect hitch for my Subaru Crosstrek. Bought so I could install a hitch bike rack and this works great. Sits much more flush than regular 2in. Hitches I was looking at. Fairly easy to install if you have one or two other people to help you hold it up while you are installing it.


Installation instructions were good. Took about 1.5hrs to install. You will need a second set of hands. Works great. No issues. Good price. Fit my Subaru Impreza perfectly.

Stuart S.


Works great. Ive used it multiple times. No issues


Happy with my hitch :) The product was relatively easy to install, it took two of us about 1.5 hours to finish. I'm using it for my bike rack and it fits my 1.25" yakima "hold up" perfectly. I was worried that it would be too close to the car or too low to the ground, but I haven't had any problems.

2019 Subaru Impreza

Was easy to install. Could use to longer bolts where shines are!



It’s been a great product, work as expected. Would buy from from this company again.

2020 Subaru Impreza

Took bout an hour to install, not hard to install, paint was chipped. Can’t wait to use


I’ve ordered from you all before at least ten years ago and was pleased with transaction and easy to follow instructions to install. Again I’ve kept your information and purchased another hitch for a different car and again was pleasantly pleased with transaction and installation of the hitch. Will definitely recommend this company and their products to friends and neighbors! Also would like to add “Dianna A” the person that guided me thru the transaction process was very professional and very knowledgeable of the products. Her kindness and willingness to help me was a huge help to me in purchasing the correct hitch for my car! Thanks

2016 Subaru Impreza

Product DT24959 Really easy to install. Watching the video on their website is all the information you need to install trailer hitch. I was lucky to have access to a gas station lift and a second person to hold unit in place while I bolted unit on. We left off the spacer (item 6) maybe needed for different model of car also no need to lower muffler on 2016 Subaru Impreza.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Subaru Impreza for Use with Thule T2 XTB
    When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # DT24959 on a similar 2015 Subaru Impreza we found that from the hitch pin hole to the outermost portion of the bumper measured 4 inches. Your Thule Pro XTB T2 TH9035XT has a distance of 7 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the nearest portion of the rack. That would indicate that you'd have plenty of clearance for the bike rack.

  • Towing Capacity of Trailer Hitch for 2017 Subaru Impreza
    I was unable to find the exact towing capacity of your vehicle online. Best option will be to check your owners manual or to check with Subaru directly.

The Draw Tite part # DT24959 is a fit for your 2017 Subaru Impreza and it has towing capacities of 2,000 lbs total trailer weight and 200 lbs tongue weight. If that is higher than the capacity of your vehicle as...

  • What Type of Tools are Used to Enlarge Frame Holes for Trailer Hitch on 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek
    If you have a grinding wheel type of bit that could work to enlarge the frame holes on your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek. Another option is to use a file. It takes a bit more elbow grease than a power tool but it works. And you also might be able to use a chisel and hammer if you have room enough to work under the vehicle.

  • Why is Power Wire Run to Battery For Wiring Harness 118573 on 2016 Subaru Impreza
