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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Chevrolet Equinox - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Equinox we'll be installing the Draw-Tite hitch, part number 75681. Here's what our hitch will look like once it's installed. Next we'll go ahead and give you a couple measurements to assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 4-3/4". From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 14-3/4". This will assist you with selecting accessories such as a ball mount, bike rack, or a cargo carrier.

We'll now go ahead and with the installation. To begin the install of our hitch we'll first need to remove the rear fascia piece. This fascia is held in with some plastic fasteners so we'll squeeze the two lower fasteners and we'll pop the five fasteners across the top loose. Once we have it popped loose we can go ahead and remove it. Now with the fascia out of the way we'll set it aside as it will not be reinstalled. Now for our center attachment points we're going to use the 1/2" carriage bolt and block supplied with our install kit.

This hardware is going to get fed through the end of the frame channel and through the pre-drilled holes to become our attachment points here at the center of the vehicle. That once we get the hitch in place, to secure the hardware we're going to use the 1/2" conical tooth washer. The teeth of the washer will face the hitch and a 1/2" nut. Starting with our center attachment points we're going to go ahead and take the pull wire, feed it through the attachment point, and out the end of the frame channel. Once we have the pull wire out of the frame we'll go ahead and take the smaller-sized block and then our carriage bolt, sliding the block onto the bolt leader and threading the carriage bolt into position. Then we'll feed them into the bumper channel separate and pull them into place.

Now once it's in position we can go ahead and remove the bolt leader and repeat the same process on the driver side. Keep in mind, since our attachment points are identical on each side, each process we do on one side we will repeat identically on the opposite side. Securing our hitch at the weld nuts will be the new 12mm bolt and 1/2" conical tooth washer. The teeth of the washer are going to face the hitch. Next we'll go ahead and look at the side of the frame attachment points. These weld nuts are built into the frame by the manufacturer.

Over time they're going to build up with rust, dust, dirt, and debris. We'll go ahead and clean them out using our 1/2" nylon tube brush, part number 814092, and some spray lubricant. Once we have it thoroughly cleaned out we'll go ahead and take one of the new 12mm bolts, thread it into the weld nut to make sure they'll go nice and easily. Once we know that it will go nice and easily we'll go ahead and repeat the same process for the other three weld nuts. Now with all the weld nuts cleaned out and our center carriage bolts in place we're ready to put the hitch in position. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install your fasteners. Keep in mind, you'll make sure you line up your attachment points here at the center carriage bolts so you don't push them back up into the frame when you put the hitch in place. To secure our center attachment points we'll again use our 1/2" conical tooth washer. The teeth of the washer will face the hitch. Then our 1/2" nut. Now with all our hardware in place and finger tight we'll go ahead and run them down to secure the hitch. Now that we have all our fasteners tightened down we can go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. That does it for the install of the Draw-Tite class three 2" receiver tube hitch, part number 75681, on our 2015 Chevy Equinox. .

75681 seems to be a fine product. I really like the extra strength of the 75681. The only thing which I would suggest for consideration would be for the addition of 2 (two) more Pull Wires. The Pull Wires are a great idea and a real time and trouble saver. My installation required the use of the 2 (two) Carriage Bolts and the 2 (two) 1-1/2 x 2 (Small Blocks) for the Bumper Mounting Bracket. I did my installation on my driveway. A small hydraulic jack was very helpful in lifting the receiver socket towards the frame while installing the Bumper Mounting Bracket Hex Nuts and Conical Washers. The installation did require me more than 40 (forty) minutes. The online installation videotape was very informative and helpful. This was a very smooth project. Thank You! John M. Habak 95168

I was really impressed that all the mounting holes (8) all lined up perfectly on my 2013 Equinox. The instructions were accurate and easy to follow if you take the time to read them which I didn't and paid the price. There are two styles of bolts, four of which are to be associated with the plates that are fed into the vehicle channels with the supplied feeder wires. I used the non carriage bolts by mistake and they were not fun fishing them out. Thank goodness I had flexible magnet. Also the video recommends to use 2 people. I managed by myself with a couple of jack stands and a bottle jack to position it in place while laying on my back. Took a one hour job and turned it into a four hour one. Again I give the product an A+ and the installer an F. 86036

Outstanding product! Online videos were very helpful, BUT my 2014 V-6 Equinox did not have nuts welded on the inside of the frame for the larger bolts, as described in the written instruction sheet - I needed the bolt leaders included with the kit. Hint: to put tension on the bolt as you attempt to thread on the nuts, thread the leader up onto the bolt (you've just installed using the leader) 3/4" or so, then bend it 90 degrees to the right. That allows you to exert a downward force on the bolt while installing the washer and nut on the clean threads. Tighten the nut as instructed, then clip off the exposed end of the leader. Also, the Class 3 hitch may require that you trim the plastic trim piece removed in Step 1 before it can be reinstalled. 99136

Nice Draw-tight Hitch and wiring package. Generally I was pleased with it and I installed it relatively quickly. My only nit was the rectangular retainers which fit at the rear just above the hitch connector itself were 1/4 inch too big to fit into the oval slots adjacent to the bolt holes. I had to grind them down. Also had to grind the bolt heads slightly to fit in these same slots. Other than that it went easily. Wiring kit is especially easy to install. 79295

I ordered a Draw-Tite receiver hitch, #75681, for my 2011 GMC Terrain on Tuesday. I received it on Thursday and installed it on Friday. The free shipping was great and much faster than I expected. Your price was the best I found on the internet. The hitch fit like a glove and was easy to install, even by myself. I could not be happier with etrailer's service and Draw-Tite. Thank you very much! 43340

Just received the hitch and wiring harness the other day. Have yet to put them on. Shipping took about 5 days to philly area. Both parts were in the box along with hardware intact. Box had a few tears, but expected seeing the hitch has some weight to it. Etrailer was smart to shrink wrap the harness to the hitch as to not be lost in shipment. Update to follow on installation to a 2014 equinox. 141010

I know the product works, I was just miss led by the picture. I have a 05 equinox and was hoping it would fit in the hidden cut out space made by the factory for a hitch. If I knew it didn't fit up in there, like the picture, instead it sits below bumper, I would have bought a cheaper one to save me some money. But other than that it's a good product. 24030

I had no problem with the hitch or harness that I ordered. On the other hand, the Equinox had three weld nuts that were difficult to get the bolts threaded into. I tried multiple bolts and oiled them, but still they were slow going in all the way. 158131

Fits like a glove. Well designed and built. Easy bolt in installation (made real easy when the nut are already welding in the vehicle's frame). Only complaint is some of the powder caot paint was chipped due to poor handling in the warehouse. 2677

The primary difference between the Curt # 13591, the Hidden Hitch # 87572 and the Draw-Tite # 75681 is that the Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite models use two additional connection points into the bottom of the frame member.
