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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Chevrolet Equinox - Draw-Tite

Today on this 2013 Chevrolet Equinox were going to install part number 75681 from Draw Tite. This is what the hitch looks like when its installed on the vehicle. Next well go ahead and give you some measurements that will help you out in selecting some accessories. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be about four and a quarter inches. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 14 inches. Now well go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.

The first thing we need to do is go ahead and remove the small panel at the center of the bumper. That will give us room to install the hitch. Well go ahead and take it apart, and you can see how the clips work. Its a good idea on the clips around the edge to push in from the backside with a screw driver and maybe use some needle nose pliers to squeeze the tabs at the very ends of the corners. At this point we can go ahead and show you where the hitch mounts up on the vehicle.

Inside at the center of the bumper structure you can see there are two holes that the hitch will attach to. Then on the side of the frame there will be two threaded holes that the hitch will attach to. The oval hole on the bottom of the frame is also an attachment point. Well start off by cleaning out the threaded holes inside of the frame. Well spray some lubricant in there to help clean it out and use a tube brush to remove the debris.

That will be part number 814092. Now well go to the bumper structure and two attachment holes there. Take our bolt leader, run it through the hole in the bumper structure. You can see that the wires going to be too short, so were going to take some extra wire and attach it to length it. At this time, well take this bolt leader, well run it through the attachment hole and out toward the end of the frame.

Then well thread in our block and then thread in our bolt. And pull everything through back out the attachment hole. Were done with one side. Lets go ahead and repeat on the other side. Now well go ahead and start installing the hardware that goes in the oval holes at the bottom of the frame. First off, well take our bolt and our block and well put it together, well thread it in place, then push the bolt and the block all the way to the side of the frame and pull it back out, so theyre staying inside the frame. Were done with one side, well go ahead and repeat on the other side. Now the bolt leaders, well go ahead and leave those on for the bolts that go through the bumper structure. Now well go ahead and get an extra set of hands to help hold the hitch up in position. Well go ahead and line up the hitch with the bolts at the bottom of the frame, then thread on our hardware which will be a conical tooth washer and nut. Well make sure that the teeth on the conical tooth washer are pointing toward the hitch. Now well go ahead and do the same thing for the bolts going through the bumper structure. With all the hardware loosely installed we can go ahead and tighten down the bolts. Well have to pull back on the bumper cover a little bit to get access to the bolts, then torque them down as specified in the instructions. With all the hardware torqued down, that will finish it for our install of part number 75681 on our 2013 Chevrolet Equinox.

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

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

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

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

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

Product arrived promptly. I installed it relatively easy. Of the 6 bolts 4 went smoothy and 2 needed some he-man cranking. Installed my bike rack and ready for some mountain biking in remote places!44635

  • Which Trailer Hitch Will Be Least Visible on a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox
  • All the hitches we offer for your 2011 Chevrolet Equinox have similar designs, and they are actually going to fit in nearly the same location. There is a center panel in the center of your vehicle bumper that will be removed for the hitch installation, and the hitch receiver opening will fit up into the space that is left when the panel is removed. Because of this, the hitches for your vehicle are all going to be mostly hidden. The same hitches that fit your vehicle also fit some similar models
