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 - 2016 Subaru Legacy - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2016 Subaru Legacy we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, Class 3 2" receiver, part number 75673. As you can see, it's a very clean look, very minimal amount is showing. You don't have any crossbars coming down that supports the frame really, you just have the main two body of the hitch and the actual 2" receiver itself. As you can see, our hitch as two holes on it. The larger one is for the 5/8" diameter pin, the smaller hole is for our J-Pin device, and that is a device that is inserted to help reduce the rattle and shake in the receiver tube for your accessory that's inside of it that's provided if your accessory doesn't already have its own anti-rattle device built into it Now, this 2" Class 3 receiver hitch has a 4,000 pound max trailer weight rating and it has a 600 pound max tongue weight rating. Obviously, you'll want to consult with the owner's manual of your vehicle and go by whichever one's lower before you decide to use a cargo carrier or tow a trailer, that way you don't exceed the limits of the hitch or the vehicle.

This hitch is not compatible with weight distribution setups. Now for a couple of measurements to help you choosing any hitch-mounted accessories you may need, such as ball mounts, bike carriers or cargo carriers, you're looking at a total of around 10 1/2" from the ground to the top of the 2" received, as well as about 6" from the center of the 5/8" diameter hitch pin hole to the back of our bumper. First thing we want to do in order to install our hitch is temporarily lower the exhaust down, spray the hangers with some lubricant to help make them slide off slightly easier. There's two on either side of the vehicle just above the mufflers and there's a third one just in front of the rear axle and we can pry them off with a pry bar, just like that. For the rear hangers, we'll do the same thing and pry against the hook right there. Now there's two more in front of the muffler on either side, so we'll spray those down as well.

Now, we need to remove our heat shields above both of our mufflers. To do that, there's four 10mm bolts. Make sure we set our bolts to the side because we will be re-installing them later. We'll do the same on the other side. Now, there's four rubber plugs and some holes in the frame rail. We're just going to pop them out.

There's one on each side in front of where the muffler was and one towards the back of it. With those removed, we can set them down. We will not be re-installing them, but we can always keep them in case we decide to take our hitch off at some point. We'll do the same on the other side. And now we'll measure back from our existing hole to mark the location that we're going to drill for our new hole.

As always, when drilling into metal, I highly recommend wearing safety glasses and gloves to protect you from metal shavings. Now that we've enlarged our hole to the 1 1/8" diameter, our placer plates slide in nicely. We repeat the process on the other side. Now we take our fish wire here, put it through the forward hole, bring it down to the access hole we drilled, take our 3" long spacer block, put it on the wire, push it up inside the frame rail, thread our carriage bolt onto the fish wire, push it up inside, pull it on down. Now we'll do the same thing on our rear hole, but using the 2" long spacer bar. Pull it down. We'll repeat the same process on the other side. Now that we have all our bolts fish wired to the frame of our vehicle, we need to prep the hitch for installation. Now, there's a flat washer here that goes on the forward bolt hole. But here's a little tech tip, so you don't have to worry about holding the washer in place, put a piece of tape on it like so and tape it into position on our hitch, wrap it around and you can poke a hole in it and our bolt will go through nice and easy. We'll do that to the other side of the hitch as well. Now, when you get ready to install the hitch, just make sure that you have your exhaust lowered. If you have to lower it a little bit further, you have it supported by a strap so it doesn't cause any damage further up in the system. Now with the help of an assistant, we'll raise the hitch into position and we'll install our conical tooth washers facing the hitch with the teeth and then we'll use our nuts to secure it and do the same on the back side, just like so. Little tech tip here, if we re-install our exhaust heat shield bolts in the holes, just loosely for right now, we can easily align the hitch properly before we tighten it down. That way the hitch won't cover up any of the bolt holes and we'll be able to install our heat shields real easily. With our heat shield bolts temporarily in place, we can snug down our hitch using 11/16" socket. Now with our heat shields, we need to trim them a little bit so our bolt heads for our hitch sit flush against the heat shield and our heat shield won't rattle. Just going to trim out this section here on the right-hand side, for the left hand side we'll do the same thing, slightly different. So we use a pair of tin snips and cut this out. We'll do the same thing with the other head shield. With our head shield trimmed, we can remove our bolts that we loosely put into it, we'll slide over the exhaust hanger there. We install one of our bolts. We'll add the other three. With our four bolt loosely installed, we can snug them down and we can repeat the process for the other side. With our hitch up, torque our bolts down to the manufacturers' specification, which you can find in the instruction manual and repeat the process for the other three bolts. Now we can raise our exhaust back into position. Now we can reinstall our exhaust hangers, push it on the stud, maneuver the muffler into place. We have that one done. Now we have four more to do. Perfect. With that done, we have all our exhaust hangers reinstalled. Make sure to remove our strap belt that we used to help support the exhaust and that completes the installation of our Draw-Tite Max-Frame Receiver Class 3 with 2" Receiver, part number 75673 on our 2016 Subaru Legacy.

2011 Subaru Outback Wagon


I found that the packaging for the hitch itself, as well as the instructions and video, were well done. I was careful and spent far more than an hour (or two hours) installing it, however, on a Subaru Outback 2011. Two hopefullly helpful installation tips to add to what others have already posted: 1. If you have a Subaru Outback 2011, take off the rear most rubber exhaust hanger entirely before mounting the hitch. You'll have to anyway - it won't fit through the hole that's provided. Much easier before (rather than after) you already have the hitch up into position. Then put it on when you're finally ready to put the exhaust back on -- but not before. Much easier to slide the exhaust hanger onto both at once than just to reattach it early and fit those annoying rubber pieces. 2. Instead of cutting off a portion of the heat shield, use the same drill bit to put one hole in the heat shield that will fit nicely over the newly installed bolt and nut holding the hitch up on the driver's rear side. Much cleaner looking (not that anyone will look under there, but whatever). Like many others, I also went in via the cargo compartment instead of drilling up through the bottom, figuring there would be less corrosion that way. Even a 7/8" hole with an extra 1/4" hole next to it will easily fish the plates and bolts in. I did use a "grabber" and help from a friend to get the fishing done to put the bolts in place. Removing the fishing attached to the bolts prior to putting the hitch in place was a bit painful - you really don't want to knock one of the loose bolts back up into the frame of the car. I propped the hitch up inch by inch by myself until it was ready to go. This is a nice looking hitch that will more than do the job. I've installed this same brand of hitch before on a Rav4 and a Nissan Xterra - both of these together were easier than on a Subaru Outback, but the final product looks good. For a Subaru Outback, I think this is about the best hitch you can consider. 266516

2014 Subaru Outback


My new DrawTite hitch for a 2014 Outback surprisingly arrived without any boxing or wrapping. Just a shipping label wrapped around the receiver, which had the bag of parts tucked into it. I called eTrailer out on this, and they said it was packed up correctly when they sent it. UPS was the culprit. It was fine and unharmed nonetheless. Installation was fairly easy, and having the video was really helpful. I drilled 4 holes down from inside the back of the car behind the wheel wells with a 1-1/8" hole saw, instead of up through the frame, and it made it really easy to see the pre-drilled frame holes right below them to pass through the fish wires with the bolts. And now there are no extra holes underneath the car for rust and corrosion to attack. I covered the new holes I made with a couple of layers of metal HVAC tape, then put all the Styrofoam pieces back in place. Also, I reattached the whole heat shield after cutting the corner piece off, and then torqued the main bolts down. Having access to a lift at my local garage also made this a piece of cake. Lastly, I will mainly be using the hitch for a 4-bike Thule rack, which won't see much action throughout the winter. I put a fitted piece of the HVAC metal tape over the back of the receiver opening. If you put a cover on one end to keep out dirt and moisture, why not cover the other end as well??? 105601

2014 Subaru Outback


Ordered this from the really helpful folks at etrailer and it came very promptly and exactly when they said it would. I installed it on a 2014 Subaru Outback wagon using the OEM method which requires removing the rear bumper, which eliminates the need to drill additional holes in the uni-body frame. I hired a local autobody shop to do the bumper removal and replacement of the rear bumper. He and I removed the bumper and had the whole installation done in an hour. The Drawtite sits up snug underneath, is unobtrusive and does the job. 132672


Comments

The hitch has been great. The written and printed instructions helped with the installation. I did get a local autobody guy to help me with the bumper removal and replacement during the installation, but otherwise it was a very straightforward.

2012 Subaru Outback


Installation video and written instructions were good. For my 2012 Subaru Outback, two of the four muffler heat shield bolt holes were not aligned very well. It required grinding one of the holes open to get everything back together. The brackets also did not clear the underside portion of the bumper and needed about 1/4" x 1" trim on each side for everything to clear. These items are not major issues, but made installation a pain. 77540


Comments

Hitch works very well. I use it at least weekly, for bicycles or cargo carrying.

I installed this hitch on my 2014 Subaru Outback. The instructions for the install were great and detailed with a drawing of where to install all the pieces. The videos online that I watched before were also helpful. Installation took about 1.5 hours I would guess. 132449

Working great so far. Ive used it a few times with a cargo carrier that I got at harbor freight.

2014 Subaru Outback


It's a trailer hitch, just like it was supposed to be. I installed this on a 2014 Outback. I pulled the bumper off instead of drilling holes in the frame. The method worked well but did take some time, about 3 hours total. It is a bit unnerving pulling the bumper off and it is important to have the plastic warm and to take your time not to break any of the plastic tabs that attach the bumper to the frame. Other that that it was OK. 135991

2013 Subaru Outback


This is the second time I have used etrailer and their whole process was great once again. Fast and free delivery can't be beat. I received it on a Thursday afternoon and completed the install later that evening on my 2013 Outback. The videos provided are excellent and make the install a breeze. 84676

Installed the hitch yesterday. I fit perfectly - all holes lined up well. It sits somewhat behind the bumper, so it's not overly visible from the rear. I installed it by taking off the bumper facia and bumper so that I could access the frame tubes without drilling the 1 1/8 inch holes. It took considerably more time, but we keep our cars forever and I didn't like the thought of drilling such large holes. Getting the mounting hardware in place once the bumper was off was a snap. Getting the bumper into position was an ordeal. It was just me, and I couldn't raise the car. I finally got it up and aligned using an auto jack and two jack stands to support the hitch. It's just very awkward to work with. Everything went back together perfectly and the installation looks nice and clean. I also put in a wiring kit. Left the end in the wheel well rather than stringing it through to the outside. As someone notes in comments to the etrailer Youtube video, the wiring harness doesn't just magically appear like it does in the video. You have to take off the cargo hook and cut the upper blue tape and fish it out. Other than that, there's not much to it. 263604

Installed a Draw Tite in a 2015 a Outback wagon, directions were accurate and all parts included. 1-2 hour install time, included a few breaks and to let primer dry on the 2 access holes needed, took my time. All holes and bolts lined up well, etc. when you hang the exhaust down to access the heat shield, use a jack stand to support it, it's fairly heavy. Hitch sit's under bumper nice, recessed just far enough to keep from banging a shin, but easy to use. No wiring added as its for a bike rack. 257310

The hitch arrive very quickly and in great shape. The previous reviews and the videos and the written instruction helped a lot. I removed the muffler rather than lower it. I also expanded the holes from above, inside the cargo area with a step bit rather than doing the hole saw from below. Installation was very easy, especially using a floor jack to provide initial support of the hitch. I took my time, it was hot out, and installed the hitch in about 90 minutes by my self. 132354

Very impressed with the product and the customer service. Hitch was very easy to install. I used help from a second person during the actual mounting of the hitch but everything else is definitely a one person job. I purchased the wiring harness from Etrailer as well. The first one that was sent did not work but etrailer provided excellent customer service in troubleshooting and providing a replacement very quickly. Would highly recommend. 267947

It is installed (took about an hour) easy concise instructions, all hardware needed to put it on was there. Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but will be using it later today I hope. Only improvement I can think of is a link, or note about electrical connections, as I didn't think of that myself and had to order connectors et al afterwards. Otherwise great product! Will definately recommend to any one I know who needs a hitch... 263138

Just finished installing this hitch on our car. Draw-Tite's reputation is well earned and we're happy with how the hitch has performed (limited use). The installation instructions could have been better. Their genericness makes it difficult for the first timer like me. Doing the second one would be a piece of cake. Installation took us about 2 hours instead of the advertised 1 as a result. 135819

They would install in the same manner using identical instructions and would both have the same 7 inch distance between the receiver hitch pin hole and the furthest rearward portion of the rear bumper when installed on a 2011 model Subaru Outback Wagon. Although the hitch will attach to the vehicle using existing holes in the frame, a 1-1/8...

  • Recommended Class III Hitch for Carrying Bike Rack on 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • When you're planning on using a hitch for a bike rack, and you're trying to determine if the two will be compatible, the important measurement is the distance between the hitch pin hole and the furthest rearward part of the bumper. The FAQ article I've linked shows how to take this measurement. I checked out the 1UP USA racks, and saw that they're all compatible with the 2 inch receiver provided by a Class III hitch, so that's what I'm recommending you go with. The 2 inch receiver has...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75673 for the 2015 Outback also fits the 2016 Subaru Outback. And Curt also has an option, # C13206. These hitches will fit as long as your Outback is not a Sport model. Since you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If...

We have not had the opportunity to install this hitch on a 2015 as of yet, but I have attached a link to an installation video for this hitch on a 2014 model.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation For 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • You are correct that all of the trailer hitches that we currently offer for your 2016 Subaru Outback will require drilling to install the hitch. The Draw-Tite trailer hitches require that an access hole be drilled in order to fishwire the installation hardware, and then the hitch is installed through pre-existing holes in the frame. The Curt trailer hitches require that an existing hole be enlarged to allow for the hardware to be fishwired, and then the hitch is installed in one existing...

  • Which Trailer Hitch Receiver Has Most Ground Clearance On 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Each hitch is positioned to sit tucked up and close to the bumper as you can see in the product page photos. All of the hitch receivers available for the 2014 Subaru Outback will sit in the same general position with ground clearance varying slightly from each hitch. Other factors include how much tread you have on your tires and how well the tires are inflated. For example, from the ground to the top of the receiver on the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 87568, measures 16 inches....

  • Comparing Hidden Hitch # 87568 or Draw-Tite Class III # 75673 Hitches for a 2016 Subaru Outback
  • The Hidden Hitch # 87568 and the Draw-Tite Class III # 75673 are both manufactured by the same parent company, Cequent Performance Products. Other than the brand name sticker, both hitches are identical. When we installed either hitch on a 2015 Outback, we found that the hitch pin hole was recessed under the vehicle by 5 inches. This means that either the # Y02465 FullSwing or the # Y02464 SwingDaddy would work fine for you. The primary differences between the SwingDaddy and the FullSwing...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for 2010 Subaru Outback
  • The two best bike carrying options for your Outback would be a trunk mounted rack or a hitch mounted rack. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. A hitch mounted rack would be initially more expensive, but having the receiver hitch would offer more flexibility. If the need should arise, you could tow a small trailer or use a hitch mounted cargo carrier. For bike carrying purposes, the biggest advantage offered by the hitch mounted rack would be the fact that the rack would not...

  • What Bike Rack and Trailer Hitch do you Recommend for my 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I recommend the Draw-Tite Hitch Class III # 75673 for your 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon. This hitch is confirmed to fit your vehicle by Draw-Tite and we have test fitted the hitch on your 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon. This hitch does not require welding to be installed and uses an easy bolt-on installation. The black powder coat finish covers an e-coat base for great rust protection. This hitch does fit with the Swagman Chinook bike rack. The Swagman Chinook 2 Platform rack # S64683 works...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Towing Accessoires for 2015 Subaru Outback
  • We do indeed have hitches for the 2015 Subaru Outback in both the 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch receiver size from Draw-Tite or Curt Manufacturing. Whenever the option for a Class III hitch is available, I recommend going that route as there's a much better selection of hitch mounted accessories available for the more common 2 inch receiver. Curt makes a great product, but their warranty requirements for their Class III hitch, part # C13206 stipulate that a stabilizing strap like part #...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon for Carrying Folding Bike Rack
  • For your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon I would recommend the Hidden Hitch part # 87568 over the Curt hitch part # C13206. The Curt hitch requires the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when you carry a bike rack with it and the Hidden Hitch does not so because of that I would go with the Hidden Hitch. Failure to use the strap with the Curt will void the warranty. The Hidden Hitch has a distance of 5-1/2 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the outer most portion of the...

  • I have just the hitch solution for you. The Curt hitch part # C13206 is confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon and sticks out further than the Draw Tite # 75673 that you referenced. This hitch has 2-1/2 inches from it's pin hole out to the rear bumper so it would fit well with your bike rack that requires 5 inches of clearance. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using...

  • Hidden Trailer Hitch that Tucks Under Rear Bumper of 2016 Subaru Outback

When we installed it on a similar 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon as yours we found that the pin hole of the hitch was recessed 5-1/2 inches behind the bumper and on the Curt hitch # C13206 it was 2-1/2 inches. I attached install videos for both hitches for you to check out as well. To convert your 4-way to a 7-way will require the part # ETBC7 which comes with everything needed to...

  • On the Curt hitch part # C13206 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on the bumper will be right at 2-1/2 inches. On the Draw Tite Hitch # 75673 and the Hidden Hitch # 87568 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on the bumper is 4-1/2 inches.

  • Trailer Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • First, the difference between Curt trailer hitches # C13206 and # 13390 is what vehicles each fits. Both will fit your 2014 Subaru Outback but each can also fit other vehicles so in terms of fitting your vehicle there isn't much difference between them. I would not recommend either one though because Curt requires a stabilization strap # 18050 when using either hitch with a bike rack or cargo carrier per their warranty. Draw-Tite does not have this requirement. The Draw-Tite trailer...

With the hitch installed it measures approximately 5-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear bumper.

  • Will Yakima RidgeBack Bike Carrier Fit Factory OEM 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Subaru Outback
  • In order for the Yakima RidgeBack bike carrier # Y02458 to fit, there needs to be at least 1-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the face of the receiver. If it is less than 1-1/2 inches then Yakima considers it a no-fit situation. It does sound like that is the case with the OEM Subaru hitch so you cannot use the RidgeBack. Putting the carrier in the receiver further is also not going to work because the failsafe pin on the RidgeBack does need to be installed through...
