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 - 2008 Chevrolet HHR

Today we will be installing Draw-Tite part number 24756, which also coincides with Hidden Hitch part number 60815. This will be going on a 2008 Chevy HHR. Here are a couple of measurements to think about when considering buying your hitch. From the center pin to the outermost point on the bumper is 5-1/2 inches. And from the top of the receiver to the ground, on this particular vehicle, is 10 inches. This will help you when ing accessories for your new hitch. Next we are going to move on to the installation. 0:43

Our first step is going to be to lower our muffler. We have three hangers that we are going to want to hit with a penetrating oil to loosen them to make them easier to come off. There is one near the axle, you have one on the passenger side or almost the center of the muffler, and then you have one on the driver side that is hidden by the muffler. There are a total of three hangers to remove to the muffler down. Now for removal of the hangers, I like to use a large screw driver or pry bar, or sometimes a pair of channel locks will work also. Our next step is to enlarge this hole with a drill bit and drill to make it large enough to put in our fastener which is a 1/2 inch carriage bolt. We are going to do that for both sides before we begin our installation. Let me check our hole size by simply seeing if our carriage bolt will fit through. So we are good on the driver side. Let us move to the passenger side. We will check our hole. And now that our carriage bolts will fit down through our sub frame, we can mount our hitch. 2:00

Now we are going to go ahead and fish our wire through the channel. Now we are going to go ahead and slide our block through our fish wire, which is going to hold our carriage bolt and be our new fastener. Feed your block up through the hole first and then pull your carriage bolt through. This will install your rear most fastener. Now we are going to go ahead and install our forward most mount. We will do this the same way. Now our forward most mount is installed on the passenger side. We can take our fish off. We will do the same thing for the driver side. Now is the best time to get a friend because we are going to install the hitch. We are going to be installing the hitch with conical washers, the notches will face the bottom of the vehicle, and then fasteners and nuts. You want to slide the muffler side of your hitch in first. And I like to fasten the passenger side first. I like to put a little side pressure on the bolt to help hold it in place while threading on the nut. You can see we are hand tight on the passenger side. We will do the same thing for the driver side. 3:51

Once we have all four of our mounting bolts hand tightened, you are going to go check your instructions and tighten down to the recommended torque specs. We are going to repeat the same process on the driver side. OK, now that we have all four tightened to torque specifications, we can reinstall our muffler. I like to start with the driver side rear first because it is the most difficult. Alright, that covers our driver side. Now we have one towards the axle and we have one in the very rear on the passenger side I am going to do next. Now we get the one near the axle. Now that we have our muffler reinstalled, this completes the installation of Draw-Tite part number 24756, Hidden Hitch part number 60815.

My Draw-Tite hitch was shipped promptly and arrived in good condition. The video instructions were about all I needed to perform this installation on my 2011 HHR. I'm 66 years old and not as nimble or strong as I used to be but I installed the hitch by myself in about 90 minutes. I used a floor jack on the driver's side to raise the body a couple of inches and the HHR's scissor jack to hold the hitch in place while I installed the washers and nuts. I'm very pleased with this purchase! 65586

Wow. At the risk of sounding cheesy, I only regret having waited so long to do this. The price was small. The part came inside of three days, fit exactly, and was in place in less than an hour. I did this alone, but here's my advice. Watch the video. Raise your car a bit so you fit under it, and have a friend help if you can because its heavy and awkward. But if you are thinking about it, just do it! 92328

Great product Fantastic shipping time to SC. Two Days. Everything I ordered came in one box in perfect condition. Watched video and read instructions. Did install exactly to the letter of the instructions, and install went perfect. Install time was about 35 minutes. Wiring harness took about maybe 40 minutes. Works perfect, again no problems. Strongly recommend products. 3223

Went on with out a lift using jack stands in about 45 minutes. Fairly easy install. Well constructed and should serve light trailer duties and bike rack usage very well. Note: If you are ordering this it comes with a 1/2" wire feeder so don't order one! etrailer, great job of communicating and very fast shipping!!! Thanks! 17102

, is all one piece. The flanges are already welded to the cross tube. The hardware will be in a bag that is usually wrapped to the hitch.

As advertised. I just installed the Draw Tite hitch on my Chevy HHR by myself while it sat on the garage floor. Took two hours, and that includes gathering tools and trips to the basement to get stuff. Installation of the hitch and wire harness went, well, without a hitch. Appreciate the installation videos too. Highly recommend etrailer. 3445

installed in less than an hour, half the price of any competitor in our area (wi). I did this alone no assistance from wife or kids. Only suggestion that is not listed in the instruction is to remove all the exhaust hangers not just the 3 and ream out both back holes, not just the one. GREAT PRODUCT! 13039

This hitch seems well built and fit with no problems. Just needed to raise the drivers side of the HHR to get a good angle to slip the hitch in above the muffler (muffler supports removed as instructed). Note that I installed it with no help. A lift and a friend would have made the install a breeze. 29039

This is a well constructed hitch. Because of the 40 plus lbs weight of the hitch it is best installed by two people. The installation couldn't be any easier. The only way is to have a hitch professionally installed at over twice the price. installation time was under a half hour. I couldn't be happier. 12174

  • We currently offer 3 different Class I hitches available for your 2008 Chevy HHR LT1. There are a few differences among them. The Hidden Hitch, part # 60815, includes a draw bar, pin and clip, and therefore would be a better choice for towing. The Draw-Tite hitch, part # 24756 does not include a draw bar, and would be a better choice for an attachment point for a bike rack. The hitches themselves are pretty much identical, they share the same weight rating and both would install in the...

  • Does the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for a 2009 Chevy HHR Come with Trailer Wiring
  • The Draw-Tite trailer hitch, # 24756, does not come with a wiring harness, ball mount, hitch pin and clip, or ball. All of those items would have to be purchased separately. I recommend going with the Hidden Hitch model, # 60815. This hitch comes with the ball mount, hitch pin and clip. For a 1-7/8 inch diameter ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring, use # 118407. I have included links to the installation instructions for the hitch and wiring for you.

  • How to Carry Four Bikes on 2008 Chevy Cobalt Sedan

However due to the very limited weight capacity of the Class I receiver, both the hitch and bicycle rack manufacturers all agree that any bike rack used on a Class I receiver should not be used to carry any more than two bikes.

To determine if this rack would have enough clearance to fit on your 2007 Chevy Cobalt, I recommend measuring from your hitch pin hole to a point past your bumper and any other items that might interfere with the bike rack installation. If this measurement is less than 10-1/2 inches, the Kuat bike rack would work well for your application. If...

  • Hitch mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Chevy HHR With a Draw-Tite Hitch
  • The important measurement to keep in mind for picking out a bike rack to go with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24756 is the distance from the center of the hitch pin out to the furthest point out on your rear bumper. Luckily, we have had the chance to install the # 24756 on an HHR that is very similar to yours and know that you need 5-1/2 inches of clearance.

  • Is there an Adapter to Use Class II Accessories with a Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2008 Chevy HHR
  • The issue is not exactly the depth of the receiver but the stop that is punched into it, see picture. This stop does not allow the use of Class II accessories as a safety precaution to keep users from overloading a Class I trailer hitch. I can sell you an adapter that will work with the Class I hitch, # HTAD, but it will expand the receiver from a 1-1/4 inch to a 2 inch and you still would not be able to use the Class II accessories.
