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. 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.

Review from a similar Max-Frame in Trailer Hitch


2021 Honda CRV Hybrid Touring Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Code: DT79MR I installed this unit on my vehicle. 2021 Honda CRV Hybrid Touring. I followed the instructions but not in the sequence in the instructions. 1. Using a flat head screwdriver, remove (11) rivets & (1) bolt from bottom of plastic tray and keep for reinstallation. 2. Lower exhaust–Using an exhaust hanger removal tool, lower muffler by removing (4) rearmost rubber hanger for two exhaust mufflers and (1) forward rubber hanger. A spray of lubricant or soapy water on rubber hangers makes them slide off metal pins more easily. NOTE: Be sure that exhaust is properly supported before removing rubber hangers. 3. Feed the carriage bolts 1 and spacers 2 through access holes on both side frame rails using the pull wires 9 for horizontal holes, see Figure 1. Leave pull wires attached. 4. Trim lower fascia Using a tape measure, marker or painters tape, and utility knife, measure, mark, and trim the lower fascia. See figure 2. I only cut it to 3" Wide by 1-1/2" High. (Lift gate wiring harness plastic in the way to cut any further) 5. Raise hitch into position, feed the pull wires through bracket slots and lifted it over the exhaust. Raise it up over the metal L brackets above the facia trim piece. Loosely install carriage bolt 5, spacer 6, conical washer 7, hex nut 8 through hook bracket of hitch and vehicle tow hook (See figure 4). Remove pull wires and loosely install conical washers 3, hex nuts 4 to the hitch. (Recheck facia trim piece cutout. Also check if rivet holes lined up correctly).[ Mine didn't but close enough as I didn't want to relocate the sensor wiring harness plastic] 6. Tighten all 7/16-14 x 1.25 GR 5 fasteners to 50 ft-lb (68 N*m) and 1/2-13 x 2.00 GR 5 fastener to 75 ft-lb (102 N*m). 7. Reinstall (11) rivets & (1) bolt from bottom of plastic tray and check if it needs to be cut. (Mine needed a couple of small cuts). 8. Reinstall the muffler hanger to move the muffler back into position. Summation of the project was this product is not really designed for Hands-Free Liftgate option. Also Honda's factory hitch can't be installed on a CRV Hybrid as per parts literature. Glad I was able to accomplish this task on the car as once you make the cut on the facia there is not turning back.


Comments
Thank you for your review. A slight flex can cause the bolt holes not to match up perfectly. Also, this does not fit a hybrid or touring.

Review from a similar Max-Frame in Trailer Hitch


After having our hitch installed on our 2020 Toyota Highlander Platinum that we bought on etrailer.com and after reading all the reviews for it we were very surprised at how it looked after and would like others to know so they don’t make the same mistake we did. DON’T go by reviews alone ( read the fine print ) in this case the words “visual cross tube” we missed and even after discussing with phone sales person stating how happy we’re going to be with the clean look…again just basing that on other reviews from people with the same year and model we were very disappointed with the overall result. Also the sensor for closing the lift gate by foot no longer worked as well and was a surprise also as many reviewers with same vehicle we’re reporting it did work. Get what you pay for I guess buyer beware.


Comments
Thank for your review. This Draw-Tite hitch for the 2020 Toyota Highlander does have a visible cross tube. If you would like a hidden cross tube, I recommend the Curt hitch part # C99FR that fits the 2020 Toyota Highlander as long as its not the XSE model. In regards to compatibility with the hands free liftgate feature, what we have found is that it will limit use to placing your foot on either side of the receiver tube but it should not completely restrict use.

Review from a similar Max-Frame in Trailer Hitch


Easier to install than I expected. Took under 2 hours, but pet of that time was we forgot to plug in the rear bumper ultrasonic sensors so we spent time getting it plugged back in. We could have pulled the bumper off but with the hitch cover removed and a long and skinny arm we were able to get it plugged back in. The directions weren’t the greatest on the paper but I was able to follow a video from [online site] Still, the product was in perfect shape when it arrived, and it arrived quick. Install went well and now my two friends that are both ordering Model Ys are going to go this route instead of paying Tesla $[XXXX]+ tax. Would highly recommend!
