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. 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 - 2013 Chevrolet Cruze - Draw-Tite

Today, on our 2013 Chevy Cruze, we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Hitch, Part Number 24882. Next, we'll go ahead and give you a couple of 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 3-3/4 inches. From the top of the inside of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 10-1/4 inches. This will assist you in selecting accessories such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. Now, let's go ahead with installation.

Before we install the hitch, let's go ahead and point it out the attachment points. We have a total of four attachment points, two on each side. These attachment points will be holes pre-drilled into the frame by the manufacturer. This application does not have a hinge shield to be removed or cut out, so we're ready to go ahead and start installing our hardware into our attachment points. We'll be installing a 716s carriage bolt and block into the frame and then securing the hitch with a conical tooth washer, the teeth of the washer facing the hitch and 716s nut.

We'll use the pole wire to get our hardware into the frame and into position. First, we'll take the pole wire feed it through our rear attachment point and out the forward access hole then we can go ahead and slide the block and thread on our carriage bolt. We'll feed the block and bolt up into the frame and then pull them in to position. We'll leave our pole wire on at this time as it'll make it easier to get a hitch up into position without pushing our hardware back into the frame. Now, we'll go ahead and repeat the same process for the rear attachment point.

And with the driver's side done, we'll go ahead and move over to the passenger side and repeat the same process. Now, with all our hardware into position, we're ready to go ahead and install the hitch. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install the fasteners. We'll bring the hitch up over the exhaust first and then the passenger side up into position. We'll feed our pole wires through the attachment points in the hitch and then bring the hitch tied to the frame.

We'll remove the pole wire, install the conical tooth washer and then secure it with a nut. Now, with the passenger side done, I'll go over to the driver side and repeat the same process. With all four attachment point hardware in place, we can go ahead and tighten it down then we'll torque to specifications as indicated in the instruction. Now, with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications, we're ready to hit the road and that does it for our installation of the Draw-Tite Hitch, Part Number 24882 on our 2013 Chevy Cruze.

This is by far the easiest hitch I've ever installed. It is helpful to have a pair of long nose pliers too. I attached the metal piece and bolt to the wires, then threaded them through and grabbed the wire with the pliers. The wiring is a little more difficult, but still easy. Watch the video, it is very helpful. I did have a problem with the video though, it locked up about half way through for some reason. All in all it's a nice hitch and easy installation. Thanks52459

Great price, outstanding service and hitch was delivered in 3 days- oh and the hitch was easy to install on my wifes Chevy Cruze. Took about 30 minutes for someone who isn't the most mechanically inclined individual. You will need 2 people to install it (one to hold it in place, the other to attach the screws; I used my 8 year old kid to hold it in place). The only possible negative is that the instructions were lacking. The instructions could use some better photos and focus on one model of vehicle vs having 2 types of vehicles listed which madethe instructions somewhat confusing (Chevy Cruz and Buick ?). Definately impressed with You got a life long customer from this first time buyer.51074

Hitch was as described and easy to install. Crossmember is fully hidden behind rear facia. There was one typo in the installation instructions calling for items #1 and 4 to be installed with the pull wire. It should have said items #1 and 2. Small needlenose pliers were helpful grabbing the pull wire through the mounting hole.47400

Everything was simple to install on my Cruze. The bolts were alittle hard to get in at first because they didn't fit in the holes in the frame so we had to feed them down through the frame which took a bit but once we got that in, everything was very easy from there on out! It looks great on my car and I can't wait to test it out!46123

Very easy installation. I did it by myself, although I was a little worried when mounting the hitch b/c of pushing the bolts into the frame, if you take your time you won't have a problem. Anyone can install this. The crossbar of the hitch stay hidden behind the rear bumper. Nice design.42221

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Chevy Cruze LTZ with RS Package
  • This question has come up before and a colleague of mine found out from the manufacturer that the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24882 will fit a 2012 Chevy Cruze with the RS package. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you will be doing some towing, the correct ball mount is # 3593 and you can use pin and clip # PC2. For a 1-7/8 inch diameter ball, use # 19256 and for a 2 inch diameter ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring use # 118508. I have included some links on
