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 - 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac - Draw-Tite

Today on this 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac we're going to install part number 75112. This is what the hitch looks like once installed on our Sport Trac. Next we'll give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories, such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From top of receiver opening down to the ground will be about 17". From the center of the hitch pin hole, to the outside edge of the bumper will about 3-1/4". Now I'll go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.

First off we'll go ahead and show you where the hitch attaches to the frame of our vehicle. First it'll attach right here at the bottom of the frame at the end. Also there's an oval hole right here that the hitch will attach to. This is the passenger's side. On the driver's side it'll be the same way. Using our existing hole here and our oval hole.

On the driver's side we've got some wires in the way, so I'd like to remove those to just get them out of the way before we install our hitch and just re-route them. You can pry them off with a screwdriver. I'm using a trim panel tool to help remove them. Now you can probably zip these guys out of the way; because, the hitch will take up this area. What I like to do is actually disconnect them right here and run them over the top of the bumper structure. That way you don't have to worry about them getting anywhere near the suspension it moves back and forth.

We'll push in this tab and pull the connection apart, maybe. There it is. There's one on top too. It's a little bit harder to move. Now I'll pop mine loose here and as you push up on this tab here with a screwdriver you can go ahead and release it and then pull it apart.

We're just going to run our wires back over the top. Snap them back together. Now we've got these guys plugged back together. We don't have to worry about the wires being in the way of the hardware of the hitch. Next we'll go ahead and show you how the hardware works with the hitch. On the hole that's in the bottom of the frame, we'll get this block and a carriage bolt. This will go through the frame and then through the hitch. Then underneath we'll get a contoured tooth washer. Make sure the teeth in the washer always stays toward the hitch and a nut. For the hole in the side of the frame will get the hex bolt and a thin block. This will go from the inside to the outside of the frame. In between the hitch and the frame will also get this thicker block. Then on the outside of the hitch we'll get lock washer and then the nut. All right, now this will be the same on both sides of the hitch. Let's go ahead and take our carriage bolts and blocks and put them on the bottom of the frame first. It kind of helps put the block in first and then the carriage bolt; because, this nut gets in the way a little bit. With an extra set of hands we'll go ahead and put the hitch up in position. It's a bit of a tight fit, so it's a good idea to have something to support the hitch or a good friend that likes to lift things. Let's go ahead and put our bolt and block into place into the oval hole. Just enough to get it started. Then we'll go ahead and install our thick block. Got it through the block, but not through the hitch. We'll go ahead and rotate the hitch and move it around as needed to line it up and put the bolt through. There it is and then our lock washer and nut. Now we're done with the passenger's side and let's do the same thing on the driver's side. At this point with all of our hardware loosely installed, we'll go ahead and tighten down the bolts and then we'll torque them down as specified in the instructions. Now when you hold the bolt down from the inside, there's really not much room, so you kind of have to put your wrench at an angle to help get a hold of it. With all the bolts torqued down that'll finish it for our install of part number 75112 on our 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. .

I received the Trailer Hitch very quickly...after order it I received before I knew it. I went to install it the hitch it went with little effort. The hardest part of my installation was raising the well built hitch off the ground. After moving the hitch into place it took a large screw driver slide it in to place. Four bolts and some tools and I was finished. I was surprised this project went so well. I would recommend this hitch to my friends and family. 21765

Great product The trailer hitch was as described. Great quality, and instulation was easy. It took me about 45 minutes to install, because it was hard to hold up, line up and bolt in all at one time. After I use a floor jack, all went smooth. I recomend putting the top bolts in first, to make it easier to hold up and line up the bolt holes. A perfect fit and easy to install. Great quality and worth the money. 3402
