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. Technical Support

At we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Chrysler 200 - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2013 Chrysler 200, we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Hitch, part #24871. Now, well go and give you a couple measurements to assist you in selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 7-1/4 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 10-1/2 inches. This will assist you in selecting accessories such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. Now, lets go ahead with installation.

First, lets go ahead and point out the attachment points. We have a total of four attachments points, two going through each frame rail. Our rear attachment point will be a longer, carriage bolt and block that will go all the way through the frame rail and out the other side. Itll be secured with a half-inch conical toothed washer and nut. Keep in mind, with the conical tooth washer, the teeth of the washer will face the hitch.

Our forward attachment point will be secured with a half-inch carriage bolt and block, fed into the frame rail using the pull wire provided with our install kit. They too will be secured with a half-inch conical toothed washer and nut. Lets go ahead and install the rear attachment hardware. Well slide the block under the bolt and feed it into the frame and all the way through. Then well go back and push it, flushed with the inside of the frame rail.

Now with both sides done, were ready to go ahead and put the hitch in place. Well hold the hitch up and push the bolts through the rear attachment points of the hitch. Now, well go ahead and put on the conical tooth washer and tighten down the nut finger-tight. Next, well go ahead and take our pull wire, feed it through the attachment point of the hitch and into the frame rail and out the access hole forward of the hitch. Then we can slide on our block and thread it onto the carriage bolt.

Feed them both into the frame and pull them into position. Well remove the bolt later, install the conical tooth washer and again install a half-inch nut and secure it finger-tight. Now, well go ahead and repeat the same process on the opposite side. With all our hardware in place, were ready to go ahead and tighten it down. Next, well go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. With our hitch secured and torqued to specifications, that will complete the install of our Draw-Tite Hitch, part #24871, on our 2013 Chrysler 200.

I bought the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, #24871, to mount on a 2010 Chrysler Sebring (Hard Top) convertable. I was a bit apprehensive so i called the 800 phone support and was assured it would fit. I also purchased a Swagman XC-S6465 bike rack to be used with the Draw-Tite Receiver. After receiving them, it took an hour and a half and I had 2 bikes hanging off the back of the car. Everything was flawless. Great products at a great price.40349

  • Trailer Hitch and Carrier Strong Enough to Carry an Electric Wheelchair on a 2008 Dodge Avenger
  • The Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 24871, for your 2008 Dodge Avenger, might be strong enough if the total combined weight of the electric wheelchair and platform carrier is less than 200 pounds, but I would advise against using a Class I hitch for this application. The Class I hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds, anything over that will exceed the capacity and can cause damage to the hitch, the vehicle, and/or your cargo. The best approach is to use the largest c

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Chrysler 200 Convertible
  • There is a confirmed fit for a 2012 Chrysler 200 convertible and it is Curt Hitch # C11133. The Draw-Tite hitch is not yet a confirmed fit. The Curt hitch comes with the correct ball mount, hitch pin, and clip. For a ball you can use # 19256 for 1-7/8 inch diameter or # 19258 for a 2 inch diameter. For trailer wiring, use T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118550. I have included a link to the installation instructions for the hitch and for the wiring harness for you.
