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.

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.

Exactly as promised.

It went on
without a hitch (no pun intended).

Ford Focus ‘15 install.
I put it on alone so below look at the picture of my hack to hold it in place while I set the first couple bolts. I set the whole thing on concrete block and it wants to tip down toward the front of the car, so I just held it in place with a little extension cord that was in reach pulling down on the back of the hitch.

Start to finish it took about an hour maybe an hour and a half but some of that was waiting for the paint to dry on the little bit of the frame that you have to grind down. I thought it would be better to cover the raw metal with some spray paint.

I ordered the thing on Monday and it was here on a Wednesday so I’m pretty pleased with the service, the price and the product. Great company, I will order from them again (in fact I just did)

This was the easiest over the phone order I have ever placed mostly from the excellent customer service I received with Robert S. The whole experience from placing the order to installing it myself was seamless. The way it worked out for me was ordered it one day it came to my door (free shipping) and I installed it the next day! I hope nothing changes within your company because this was one of the best transactions I have ever made.Thank you all so much.

Shipping container had a hole where hitch receiver broke through, but no mechanical damage to product. Shipping tape residue on hitch, had to remove with lighter fluid. Some paint imperfections, so I touched up the product with black gloss rustoleum since its being installed under the vehicle.
Installation instructions were outstanding. All installation materials were provided. The product fit my Ford Focus Hatchback perfectly, all the dimensions were correct.
In summary, a great hitch if sloppily packaged. Recommend.

Going great! No problems.

Ed,I was wondering if you could help me very quickly. Did you have to modify the hitch in any way to have it accept the 1upusa rack? I was told on the phone that none of the Focus hitches would work with my Yakima Holdup rack because they are all Class I. I had a Class I hitch on my previous Corolla and had no issues. The only requirement is that there is at least 2 from the hitch pin hole into the receiver toward the front of the car. I looked up the 1upusa rack and they claim the same requirement. So that leads me to believe that my Yakima rack would work as well. Can you confirm that the hitch has at least 2 of clearance from the hitch pin hole to the backstop?Thanks for any help.

Jesse, I measured hitch pin hole into the receiver toward the front of the car and found it to be 4. Hitch pin hole to rear of receiver is 2. Hope that helps.

Been using this for over a year to haul bikes on a rack that is easy to put in and take out of this hitch. Solid hitch. Easy to install. No drilling. Works great and inexpensive.

This is my third hitch purchase from Etrailer, and they always have the best price. I do not like driving a pickup so I use a small 4x8 utility trailer behind my cars when I need to haul something big. I prefer a hitch that is as close to hidden as possible, and this one comes close - don't think they could have done much better given the muffler in the way. I also prefer a hitch that bolts only to the frame rails, and this one did just that. Took under an hour for the hitch install and another hour plus for the wiring install. Plenty of room to work under my 2015 focus hatchback for install of this hitch. Everything bolted up as designed, and there were no surprises. I did not cut the heat shield for the hitch install because I didn't want to leave it hanging - I will check the bolts a few times a year to make sure they don't back out. I found installing the carriage bolts first to be easiest, then installing the 4 other bolts. Torqued everything to specs and it looks great. I included several pics to show how much of the hitch shows and how far it sticks out from different angles (my primary concern before purchase). Always great communication from Etrailer and great instructional videos. A+ service and support!

2013 Ford Focus

I ordered this 1.25" trailer hitch for my 2013 Ford Focus hatchback. I purchased it along with the Swagman XC-2 bike platform, since it was around the holidays I opted for the free shipping since it was over $100 total and I wasn't in a big hurry to get it installed. Well, I guess www.etailer.com treats their orders much like [site] does. I got the box that contained both the hitch and the bike platform in two days. I was amazed since I hand't paid for any upgrade on the shipping. Nice job guys!

Getting into the box, both the hitch and the bike rack were appropriately padded and stapled into place so there was no chance of movement. Both items in new condition coming out of the box.

I was surprised to see just one page of documentation for the trailer hitch in the box. It was a general document about hitch installation safety. No biggy, I get it, these guys are called "etrailer.com", point taken. All the supporting documentation and instructional videos are online. Right in my wheel house. I watched the installation video twice before venturing to the garage.

Once I got further into the install I then went deeper into their online help and found both diagrams and another general "how to" video on "Using Fish Wire as Bolt Leaders" since I've never worked with one of these before on a car frame. BTW, with all of the videos I've looked at on their site they have a transcript of the video as well, nice touch dudes. Handy if you do want to print them out.

The installation went as planned. They'd estimated 40 minutes in their instructions. I gave myself 90 minutes but I finished in just under an hour. I did have trouble with getting the spacer and bolt into place using the fish wire on both sides, thus the peak back online at more help files.

I've been thoroughly impressed with multiple aspects of my interaction with www.etrailer.com:

1) Selecting product by vehicle make, model, year, trim
2) Pricing
3) Order processing very quickly
4) Great website instructional videos and documentation

I've already placed an order for some other goodies from these folks. I have been recommending them to friends who are looking for hitch options as well. From my experience I can highly recommend this site for the reasons stated above.

Thanks,

Randy

Product shipped quickly. The installation directions included a step to trim away the heat shield on both sides of the vehicle where the trailer hitch receiver mounted to the bottom of the frame. I did not perform this step in case for some odd reason I ever decided to remove the trailer hitch receiver from the vehicle. Of course, I will be sure to tighten the fasteners again a few times after using the hitch.

For shipping, very fast. I ordered and received in a week. Installation. It took me about a hour and 15 minutes start to finish. This includes getting my tools and car ready. I installed by myself. I had watched the installation video prior to starting. The video made it simple. I already have a bike rack and a luggage rack. I will watch for a small utility trailer now.

Great service, quick delivery! It was very easy to install having never (ever) looked underneath my car before. The only trick was wiggling the bolts through the hole with the pull wire, and having to borrow a torque wrench. I'm so excited by how good it looks. Vacation with bikes here I come!

Year has past, and my car and I have traveled from the east coast to the west coast with a bike sitting on this hitch. 100 satisfied.

Happy New Years!! Well I just mounted the trailer hitch to my 2015 Ford Focus SE. I installed by myself in 45 min. (I have never installed one before.) o dos watch your visions about 10 times first. I must say it fits perfect!! No cutting just a little filing of the holes the bolts go through. I have attached a few photos. Thank you again for all your help!


Comments
It is great!!!! I use it for my bike rack every day. I would definitely buy it again.

Quick and easy installation. This is the only brand to utilize existing holes. The Curt brand may have a 'dressed up' flange but it isn't adding to the integrity of the hitches capacity. Besides, who wants to drill additional holes in their frame?

Seamless experience. Product is exactly what I needed, was easy to install, and has worked flawlessly since (knock on wood :)). Happy with my purchase.

Some specs:
I have a 2018 Ford focus hatchback. Need the hitch for my Thule bike rack. The hitch fits snuggly to the frame, barely see it, which is great bc you can't accidentally smack your shin on it. I was able to follow installation videos and had my brother help me install it in no time. Note: was really helpful having a torque wrench. All in all very pleased.


Comments
Still loving it. Use it all the time and it works great. Haven’t had to use it for anything heavier than a couple of bikes, but it’s exactly what I need. Would recommend it to friends.

Overall the product seems great and well made/good quality. It arrived well packaged and in good condition, no issues.

My use is very simple - a bike rack. So for that I'm sure this will be fine. I did find that getting my bike rack to fit was very tight - as in hammer tight. I suspect this is because of the paint making it a tight fit and probably the Harbor Freight rack is possibly a little off shape. With multiple fits/removals it has eased up. Still tight to install but removes fairly easily.

The installation was pretty straight forward and the written instructions were good and the videos are even better. I watched the video in advance and referred back to it during the install. I did things in the order the video showed which seemed to be slightly different than the written ones. Specifically I used the fish wires to get the bolts in place before getting the hitch up in position. This seemed to be easier for feeding the bolt and retainer up into the frame rail. This also allowed the hitch to be held up in place just on the frame rail bolts making things a bit easier to put the exhaust hangers back in place.

Seems to have worked well and I am pleased with the results. Will come back to etrailer.com for any future needs.

Excellent fit where it attached to the car. I had a shop modify the regular Focus Hatchback hitch for my Focus ST. Customer service and communication from eTrailer is the BEST I have ever seen. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.


Comments
I saw your review and pic for the hidden hitch on the focus St, and was wondering if you could send me some more pics of the under carriage mounting around the exhaust.Also if you could do a quick brief of the installation process and any problems or modifications necessary for the installation I sure would appreciate it.Thanks a bunch for your help,Ryan

2013 Ford Focus

Got it extremely quickly and was able to install it by myself in about an hour. I wish the videos online where updated because the ones that kept popping up told me I had to drill a new hole when in reality you don't. I used a pry bar to open the holes abit more instead of drilling or cutting, pry up and don't look directly at it because I had mine slip out and smack me in the head (my fault). Put a 2inch tow ball and pulled my little trailer around with no problem. If you're going to pull anything when the car itself is fully loaded with people and in my case camping gear invest in those rubber suspension coil supports. After loading down my car the cargo hitch I had basically dragged on the ground.


Comments
Thank you for your review. Here is the video about using the prybar. You can see it being used at the 2:50 mark. Also, be sure to check out in your manual what your vehicle is rated to tow.

We got it delivered earlier than expected, so that was nice. It didn't fit exactly right, there was a small gap on either side, but my husband was able to fix with some metal spacers.
Attached a bike rack to it but haven't used it yet. Seems solid. It was less expensive through etrailer than other places, so that was great. The instructions & install videos were very helpful. Hally was very pleasant & helpful.

I finally finished my winter project on my Goldwing and completed the hitch install on our Ford Focus. This week I was able to load the Wing onto my new ACE trailer and take it for a small initial run to verify how it holds the bike and road. You'll be glad to hear that it works great. I'm quite happy with my decision to purchase the folding trailer. When I parked at a shopping center during the test run, a guy came over and wanted to know where I got that cool trailer. I gave him your web site and high praise. He said he's been looking for a small trailer to pull his bike. So, I included a photo of my Wing on the trailer connected to the car ready for the test run.

etrailer did an excellent job!

I
called 4 local installers and was told they "couldn't get a hitch receiver" for my 2014 Ford Focus hatchback. [retailer] was scheduling more than two weeks out.

I went online to etrailer, found the hitch for my exact vehicle and ordered it. Within a few hours I received notification that it had shipped already and then it arrived two days earlier than expected. Ordering and delivery -- 5 stars!

With my order confirmation came a video that showed exactly how to install it on my vehicle. The video was 6-minutes. My son and I installed the hitch in less than 60-minutes. We're handy, but not "car guys". We didn't have a lift, nor did we jack up the car. 2 wrenches and a small metal file was all we needed. Instructions and ease of installation -- 5 stars!

The video suggests that the job is "easier with 2 people". Definitely right on that count too.

Overall, my expectations were exceeded and would highly recommend this to anyone who would care to read this far into a review!

p.s. I didn't take any pictures because the whole process went so fast that I didn't think of documenting it.

2014 Ford Focus

Very fast shipment. The hitch was very easy to install. I'm 87 years old and I installed it without any assistance. The picture shows my 2014 Ford Focus with a TRILIFT T1020LT: Ultra- Lite, scooter lift, and a PRIDE Go-Go Ultra X 3-Wheel Scooter Model # SC40X,on the lift.Total weight on the hitch is 149 lbs.

This is a great hitch that fits well on my 2015 Ford Focus SE Hatchback. It did require that I file the frame a little bit to get 2 of the screws in correctly (as shown on the video) and was a bit difficult to install without elevating the car. It probably took about 2 hours. This is a Class 1 hitch, so it WILL NOT WORK WITH SOME 1.25" YAKIMA PRODUCTS! Be sure to check the compatibility of the product that you will be using it with (i.e. make sure it is Class 1 compatible and not Class 2). I am using this hitch with the Kuat Sherpa 2 platform bike rack and it is working great. It is extremely sturdy and after mounting the hitch receiver, it is extremely easy to use with the rack.

The whole kit was missing 2 washers, which was annoying, but not a deal breaker.


Comments
I stand by my original review from 1 year ago. The product is still great and I havent touched it once since setting it up a year ago. I would definitely recommend this hitch to friends. The Kuat Sherpa 2 is still going strong and is definitely the nicest bike rack I have ever owned.

Hitch is perfect for my 14' fishing boat. Instructions were right on. Was able to install by myself in about 45 minutes utilizing a hydraulic jack. Wiring took longer because you had to run a wire all the way to the front (Ford not etrailer). Easy install and would recommend to anyone.

The hitch was easy enough to install and functions as intended. My only complaint is the paint is super weak. It came with chips missing straight out of the box and gently setting it on concrete was enough to chip off more. I guess that's the corner they cut to get to the price point but it's worth noting.


Comments
I apologize about the scuffed hitch. Customer Service will be reaching out. In the meantime, please cover any bare metal with anti-corrosive paint or learn more in our help article:

    It is not too unusual for trimming of a vehicle heat shield to be required when installing an aftermarket hitch like the Draw-Tite # 24872 that fits your 2014 Ford Focus. In some cases simply bending the shield can be enough but in other cases the part is best trimmed and then re-installed.

    Although the Draw-Tite # 24872 is a fit for your 2013 Ford Focus, it is not to be used for towing. It can only be used for either a bike rack or cargo carrier. On page 217 of the 2013 Ford Focus owners manual Ford cautions to never tow a trailer with this vehicle. Your vehicle is not equipped to tow and no towing packages are available. We cannot make any recommendations that would contradict what Ford states about the towing capabilities of any vehicle.

  • Can a Trailer Hitch be Installed on a 2014 Focus Hatchback with Full Body Styling Kit
    I spoke with the contact at Draw-Tite regarding hitch # 24827. They cannot guarantee fit of the hitch on the 2014 Focus hatchback with the full body styling kit but I do now how we can figure it out. Measure from the bottom of the frame where the lower attachment points on the hitch would go (using the instructions linked as a guide) down 4-7/8 inches. If none of the fascia goes lower than that the hitch will fit. If it will interfere then there are no hitches that will fit.

  • Is Trailer Wiring Harness Included with a Trailer Hitch
    We do carry trailer wiring harnesses but the Draw-Tite hitch, part # 24872, does not include any wiring. Hitches generally come without any wiring because not everyone is going to use the hitch to tow. The hitch fits specific trims of the Ford Focus between 2012 and 2018. There are specific wiring harnesses that fit the specific style of vehicle so if you can give me the details of your Focus I can recommend the correct wiring harness to fit.
