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.

Product went on as described in the instructions. I had difficulty getting the muffler's off and ended up breaking the bolts that hold the two flanges together - so be prepared for this if the car has some miles and rust on it. Also broke the screw that holds the ground cable. In all, it took me about 3-4 hrs to install including a trip to the hardware store for new muffler bolts and good drill bit. It holds my bike rack very nicely and looking forward to towing some light loads with it! I will never look back at my trunk-mount bike rack again! Also, price was the best I found and shipping was speedy. 19317

I normally reserve the highest ratings in any review for the truly exceptional. Etrailer was above my expectations on the order of this hitch for a 2011 Nissan Altima, an electrical harness and drawbar. The order went out the same day as my order and arrived a day before the promised date. Having the online video to watch before ordering gave me an idea of what to expect. There were no surprises. The hitch fit perfectly. 82577

This product is great! It was much easier to install than even the video made it appear. It took me about two hours only because I did not have the correct tools needed. I baught a 1400 pound pop-up camper and towed it 250 miles in the moutains of Arkansas and the hitch did just fine - no problems. Even the 2012 Nissan Altima I installed the hitch on pulled the camper with no prolems at speeds up to 80 mph. 36035

Outstanding service. I called prior to ordering online, with a couple of questions. They were answered quicky. I then placed the order and it arrived sooner then expected. Etrailer is the only company I consider when buying hitches. The product is exactly what I expected. Etrailer is a pleasure to do business with. Fast delivery, best price and great technical knowledge, what else could I ask for. 35675

I found it a lot easier to hold the hitch in place, mark 1 hole, lower the hitch and then drill out the hole. Next I flipped the hitch upsidedown in the trunk and put in the 1 bolt, marked the rest of the holes with a center punch, removed the hitch, drilled the holes from the trunk side and then mounted the hitch from under the car. Worked easier than holding the hitch, marking it and drilling. 52385

Nice hitch. The hitch was shipped promptly. The only trouble with the installation was a problem with Nissan, not the hitch. You need to remove 5 fastners for the installation and all 5 threaded studs broke/sheared. I ended up drilling out the threaded studs on the muffler flanges and did not use OEM hardware again. 1995

I received the hitch for my 2011 Nissan Altima and installed in a few hours. It looks great and I have already used my bike rack. I will be using the hitch for my cargo carrier in the fall. I worry that the carrier may drag if I go over a road with a recess in it but we will see. Overall I love the hitch. 146823

Perfect for my needs. Using for a Platform Bike Rack. Install was easy. Be sure to have Penetrating Oil for the bolts and juncture of the exhaust system that you will meed to take off. If your car has any miles or age on the clock, doing this will help. 34901

This hitch looks and fits great on my 2010 Altima. The only trouble I had installing this was removing the mufflers, they had a little rust on them and were slow to come apart, after that it was smooth sailing. 41732

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

Comparison Review Draw-Tite or Drawtite 24899 and Curt 11681 hitches for 2013 Honda Accord 4-dr. Due to a manufacturing defect on the first hitch I installed, I had the pleasure of installing both of these hitches in the past 3 weeks on my Accord. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to write this review. Mounting hardware: Draw-Tite came with SAE Grade 5 carriage bolts, Curt came with stronger Grade 8 carriage bolts and nuts. Apparent strength of the hitch: reviews of the Curt state that a strap is needed to stabilize bike racks, Draw-Tite does not incl. this warranty condition. However, the Curt’s receiver channel has a welded collar that reinforces the square tube that is the business end of the receiver, the Draw-Tite does not. I suspect that Curt’s collar makes the receiver’s square tube less likely to split due to the high leverage of a bike rack. Ease of Installation: Both hitches require a “spacer” or block that fits into the Accord’s rails with the carriage bolts. The width of the Draw-Tite’s spacer required the entrance hole to be enlarged by drilling, filing, or prying open the hole on my brand new Accord, the Curt’s spacer is sized so that it just slips in the existing hole without modification. Appearance: Both reveal about the same amount, the rounded cross section of the Curt tubing results in a more attractive look. Ground Clearance: When installed, the Curt hitch has better ground clearance that the Draw-Tite. Paint finish: the same for both. Manufacturing Quality Control: The sample of Draw-Tite (bearing a “Made in Mexico” sticker) I installed was defective. Drawbars had to be pounded in by sledge hammer and awkwardly pounded out by same, ruining the finish on the drawbar. Apparently, the receiver channel was deformed when the manufacturer “punched” the holes in the receiver channel that the drawbar pin fits through. Once the drawbar was pounded in, a welded button or stop within the channel prevented the drawbar from going in deep enough so that the drawbar holes and receiver channel holes lined up. Draw-Tite Customer Service acknowledged the defect and said that they had had several calls on this, were manufacturing new ones, orders were on backorder and I’d have to work with the place I bought the hitch for replacement. E-Trailer Customer service was superb, they contacted Draw-Tite, confirmed backorder status, shipped me the slightly more expensive Curt at no extra charge, provided pre-paid return shipping label for the defective Draw-Tite. The sample from Curt installed and worked perfectly. Thorough this experience with Draw-Tite, I had the pleasure of spending the time installing a hitch twice on the same car and gathering the data to write this review. You have the benefit of reading this comparison review. 89392


Just a quick note, the button or stop is intended to be present on Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitches. That stop will prevent the use of Class II Only designed ball mounts, carriers and racks.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

Etrailer actually has their items in stock in their warehouse. No waiting for drop shipments from manufacturers not even knowing if the item is in stock. Had the shipment on my doorstep within 3 days of placing order. Shipping was included. Hidden Hitch is a known brand name, price was better than any other manufacturers, hitch is well built, great looking welds, heavy duty materials, nice thick powder coat finish with absolutely no runs however hitch will not be seen anyway, thus hidden hitch. All bolt holes lined up perfectly, bolts are large and hardened and withstand the torque specifications. This is really an overbuilt class 1 hitch meaning it will never fail. The install was super easy and very quick. Wells designed, and well hidden. The little plastic rivets on the Yaris are easily removed by gently prying out the little center tab. Just pull it out gently til it stops, not all the way. The rivet is now released and will remove easily from the hole. When ready, slide the rivet back into the hole, then press the center tab back in. The instructions mentioned that a small amount of the fascia may have to be trim to clear the hitch. I did not have to do this. It was a tight fit but I was able to push it in enough to line up the holes and fasten the rivets without trimming. It took me longer to find my sockets and torque ratchet than it took for the actual install. See attached photos. 149160

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

Like the hitch - it's nice that the bar goes over the muffler instead of under it like 90% of the other hitches for Camrys. I was worried about scraping if I got one of those that bent under the muffler. I was a little nervous about the bolt holes on my old 97 car from some other reviews I read (people saying you should buy a tap to get it in there, etc), but the bolts went in after I sprayed some wd-40 up in there and cleaned as far in as I could with an old toothbrush. Then threaded the bolts by hand as far as I could go, backed them out, threaded a little further,etc. I made sure I could drive the bolts all the way with my ratchet prior to attempting it with the hitch held up in the air and they did go in with a little wrenching and a lot of lube. One weird installation issue - I am not sure if my car is a bit odd, but the right side of the hitch on the muffler side sort of hit the underside of the bumper so it couldn't seat all the way by just holding the hitch up to the underside. To get it on, I loosely bolted on the left side and the rear bolt on the right and then threaded the bolt closest the bumper a couple threads by hand and proceeded to basically wrench it down from there. I think it sort of "smushed" the piece of the bumper that was in the way up a bit and after a bunch of turns, it went on and looked fine. Overall very happy with the end product and pleased with the customer service from etrailer.com. 168538

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

This trailer hitch fits my 2015 Fiat 500e perfectly without any needs to drill additional holes. It took about 45 minutes to install if you are handy. The Fiat 500e is not designed to tow anything so the trailer hitch is really to hold my bike rack since it's designed to latch on to the left/right bumber brackets and to the right side of uni-body above the spare tire mount. If the hitch is re-designed to attach to both side of the uni-body, then I would consider towing a very lite weight trailer but I will not with the current design. It'd helped to watch the eTrailer installation video to a 2012 Fiat 500, on YouTube. The 500e does not have a spare-tire mount nor a muffler so it is easier to install since you would skip those steps. I had search the internet for an inexpensive trailer hitch and I am glad some dude recommended this particular hitch for the 500e and it fits! The best part of this whole installation is that you can remove the hitch and return the vehicle to the original configuration. 167461

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

Purchased primarily for bumper protection with draw bar added for my teenage daughter's new car. The Fiesta is a good first car for the novice teenager. But living in NYC one learns quickly that you have to fortify your vehicle like a tank in order to minimize damage from idiots parking behind you. This fits the bill. You'll be surprised how effective it is. They know to keep their distance if they don't want a gaping hole in their front bumper, lol. Oh and mounting a bike carrier on it, which I do have, is nice too. Originally ordered the Hiiden Hitch brand because I was familiar with product and liked it. But customer service said I had to wait at least a month because they were on back order. I didn't want to wait so they recommended Draw Tite. It is frankly of better quality than The Hidden Hitch. Heavier steel. I had to buy a draw bar since this one did not come with one as Hidden Hitch does. Another 20 bucks but even that piece is of better quality. It is made of solid steel unlike the other. Installation: well it took me about 90 minutes. I did it on my own without a lift. It's difficult to do on your own but with a bit of ingenuity it can be done. It's heavy so I had to place a box about 10 inches high under the vehicle and resting the hitch on top. After removing rubber hangers from muffler, I slippped right side of hitch over the top of muffler and resting it there. NOT NECESSARY TO REMOVE HEAT SHIELD as instructions tell you to do and cut. I did not do this thereby eliminating extra work. Besides I did not want to compromise integrity of vehicle as not to give Ford any excuses to void warranty for exhaust system. I connected left side first and hand tightened nuts and bolts (one nut and one bolt). Then connected the muffler side. Then tightened all. Highly recommend this product as I believe it will out live the life of the vehicle. Solid choice. 161390

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

The hitch was as expected. It came well packaged and within a couple of days. This is not the first time I have ordered with this company and it always seems to go well. This hitch actually attaches with four bolts for the 2015 Fusion. You only need take out four little nuts holding the bottom bumper and then work the hitch in place. I actually did the work myself with the car sitting on the ground. Additionally, you should get yourself one of those cone bits that allow you to make holes of varying sizes. The instructions suggest that you cut away a large section of your back bumper support but this makes no sense, just make a hole in the support so the bolt is clear of the support and then reattach the support, installing the original support nut upside down. In the attached photo you can see the support for the hitch (black) and the plastic bumper support with the bolt in view. You will notice where I have drilled a hole to clear the bolt. You will see a little nut to the right, this is all that holds the bumper support. To get it back in place turn the little nut upside down. You can install finger tight. You should also know that the bumper support is flexible to the extent you can move it out of the way while you work, just as long as you take off the two lower valance nuts at the bottom of the bumper. All told this took me 30 minutes by myself and it all looks great! Finally, the receiver section of the hitch does stick out a little more then what I would have liked but that would be about the only negative, if anything. 176466

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

The product seems to be good quality. The installation is a little tricky, though. The instructions aren't hard to read, but make sure and look at ALL the figures and read through it all twice. I've done a lot of car work (replaced suspension, even swapped an engine). Yet this still took me a little over 2 hours. You'll need a 1" drill bit or a good dremel to enlarge 2 holes. Preferably a die grinder if you don't have the drill bit. Remember the eye protection! And ideally you should paint the exposed metal after drilling. You also have to bend a heat shield (near the muffler) out of the way to get a bolt in place, and it is still tricky. After everything is tight you can bend the heat shield back but it doesn't go exactly to the original position. It should be fine, though. Last note: I have a curt tongue (from my previous hitch install) and it is short enough and the receiver recessed enough that you can install it in the "upward" (recommended) position. However, I do like how discreet this receiver will be when not in use. So, it seems like it is quality made, but I think the estimate for instillation is too low. So, 4 out of 5. 83372


Ive had the product for a year now and everything is still working as it should. No issues.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

I bought this hitch for my 2001 VW Golf. The shipping was fast and cheap, (especially considering the size of the package) and the hitch showed up at my front door a few days after ordering, well-packed and undamaged. The install process was relatively straightforward, but I would say almost impossible without a second person to help hold the hitch in place while the bolts are attached. I ended up calling a friend and using the scissor jack out of the trunk of my car to hold the hitch in place while I bolted it in. I did run into a minor problem with a clearance issue between the rear valence on the car and the receiver portion of the hitch, but I rectified it by making a small cut-out in the plastic of the bumper with my pocketknife. Since the hitch is a permanent addition, I wasn't too concerned about making this alteration- you can't see it unless you look under the bumper, regardless. The package shipped with all the necessary hardware, and even included a hardcopy of the mounting instructions. As others have said, eye protection is key for this job, because you're going to have rust and road grit raining down on you while you try to move the hitch into position, and most of it is stuff you don't want in your eyes. In terms of actual towing, the hitch worked exactly as expected. I towed a uhaul trailer about 400 miles with absolutely no problems. It easily passed a safety inspection, and provided completely trouble-free operation. For the price and ease of install, this product can't really be beat! 23689

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

Straightforward install and a perfect fit, of course. The estimate of 5" from hitch bolt hole to outside edge of bumper is pretty accurate. I chose this hitch because my bike rack protrudes 6" from the bolt hole and with this hitch I have about an inch of clearance from the bumper to the rack. (I chose this hitch over the Curt because the Curt sits an inch deeper under the car. I'm glad I did because it would have been a pretty tight fit if the rack were an inch farther under the car.) If at all possible have someone hold the hitch for you while you bolt it to the car (like they do in the video). I found myself home alone and it was tricky to do it solo while laying on the ground under the vehicle. Though I did eventually discover that the notch in the Focus jack that is meant to hold the car also holds one end of the rack perfectly while you work on the other end. Still, performing the install alone meant that it took me more like 90 minutes start to finish rather than the 30 that eTrailer estimates. Make sure you have a deep-ish 11/16" socket for the job. Probably 2 inches deep should do. I had to purchase one midway through the job (not included in the aforementioned 90 minutes) because the standard socket was bottoming out on the carriage bolts before I could torque them to spec. I only removed the rear-most (closest to the bumper) exhaust hanger and was able to manage the job, but the rack bolt that ends up directly above the exhaust was difficult to torque down due to obstruction by the muffler. The hitch is of excellent quality. It arrived quickly and safely, eTrailer.com's customer service and installation video were excellent, and the hitch does its job. 23734

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

This is my 2nd hitch receiver purchase from eTrailer. First one was for my 2007 Honda Odyssey; a HiddenHitch brand. I was debating whether to go with HiddenHitch or the Draw-Tite. But what sold me on the Draw-Tite was that it was rated "tough" -- I'm pretty sure that it is because when I received it, I noticed how well it was built. Either brand would require the factory frame holes to be enlarged somewhat on the 2012 Mazda5. Dremmel came in handy once again with metal grinder. I drilled a hole next to the factory one and started to shave the metal off. Then I sprayed it with a primer as a rust inhibitor. It actually took longer than 40min-1hour. But that's because I had taken my time as I wanted to install it correctly. Only thing that I would have improved with the Draw-Tite hitch receiver is the opening for the receiver could have been tapered instead if being straight cut. Instruction was pretty straightforward and the metal spring/string which was provided came in handy. Along with the hitch receiver, I also purchased the flat cargo carrier for the upcoming trip. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase. eTrailer once again, made what could have been a chore install a breeze. 32833

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

What can I say but EXCELLENT hitch! I finally got around to installing it today on the Grand Prix. Talk about effortless! Installed complete, from start to finish, in 30 minutes! No lie! I was lucky with mine. I didn't even have to drill the existing holes wider because the bolts with the kit fit right in perfectly. I did, however, use two lock washers for the rear that weren't included in the kit, and also Locktite, but that's just me. All in all, I am extremely pleased with the quality and fitment of the hitch. This is my third hitch install and by far the best of the bunch. Etrailer is number one! 96727

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

The product itself is just fine, sturdy and light and the wiring was fairly easy once you determined the wire paths. Drilling was required as stated on the web site and pretty easy. You do need to remove (2) 3/8" bolts to move the exhaust (very easy). BUT, the way the 2002 sebring convertible is built in the back frame does NOT make this install a 3 out of 10. Maybe that rating is for someone with more experience than myself. But here's the deal: the holes for the screws are enclosed by a metal casing (see picture attached) that has a small opening at the top facing the trunk. You literally have to tie string, fishing line etc to feed the washer and screw so you don't lose them inside the casing. Getting the washer lined up with the hole, keeping it there and then manipulating the screw into the hole is like performing an elaborate magic trick. Total install time 3hrs. Again, the bulk of that time was getting the screws and washers lined up and placed. I would hope that the difficulty level is adjusted properly unless there is a special technique that was not included in the instructions. If not for the difficult install I would mark this product as excellent. Shipping Time: 3days regular ground UPS Competitive Pricing: Cheapest I found on the web including wiring. Would recommend or buy again: Definitely. 46715

Also, if you just push a thin wire or hanger through the bolt holes for the back of the brace (closer to the front of your car) out to the larger holes in the sides of the frame and then place the bolt into the rectangular support plate. I found that if you use a heavy fishing line our a narrow piece of string you can easily pull that back through the bolt hole. Just wrap the string around the threads and tie it tight (a wrap of electrical tape would not hurt just to be sure you do not lose your bolt and bracket) in the frame. Then feed the bolt and bracket into the larger hole and BAM it pulls out of the mounting holes easily. I have some experience fishing things, but it only took about 10 min to do both sides. Then bolt the back of the hitch on and be careful not to push the bolt back up into the frame. Do not fully tighten the back bolts until you drill out the front holes (near the bumper) out for the bolt to fit. Then just place the smaller bolts into the square bracket and push them through from behind then fully tighten all four of the bolts and you cane have this hitch on in way less than an hour. I am so glad I did not go and spend a fortune at u-haul and did the work on my own. It does help to have a second person to hold the hitch at times) The electrical is pretty easy also just take off your rear lights and make sure you splice into the proper electrical wires. I was very happy with my purchase and will not buy a hitch any-where else!! 121556

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

This is the second hitch I have purchased from you and both hitches have been very well made. The first one for my Hyundai Sonata was easy to install and I used it to attach my bike rack and occasionally tow a small utility trailer. I sold that car and now have a 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible. The hitch itself was made equally well and now that it’s installed, I expect it to provide the same great functionality and service too. However, the installation was a nightmare. And it didn’t need to be. The instructions have you inserting the heavy steel retaining/load distribution plates through an opening in a boxed girder section of the rear frame; to which the heavy rear bumper reinforcement cross piece is attached (welded in place). This opening is marginal at best to insert these plates and the ½” carriage bolts that go through them. But trying to then insert the bolts through the holes in the plates is next to impossible. I could describe in detail why this is, but I haven’t got the time. A better solution would be: first, provide a template to predrill the second hole on each side so that you don’t have to mount the hitch to determine the position of this hole. And most crucially, supply hex machine bolts instead of carriage bolts and weld nuts to the plates so that bolts are inserted facing up through the hitch places and threaded into those plates with the pre-welded nuts. For this reason alone, I’ve reduced my rating from “Excelent” to between excelent and “Good”. 134550

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

I'm using this hitch only to carry my bike carrier for transport of my bikes, no towing. Initial order was with Amazon, they couldn't deliver, so after a couple weeks and no shipment I cancelled and ordered direct with etrailer. Even etrailer had a delayed shipping of around a week to ten days once I ordered. I can't imagine this hitch for my car is in such demand, so mostly likely a short run, not high demand item. I can't blame a business for working on the high demand, high quantity items first, if that was the case. Product fit pretty good, instructions talk about threaded nut/hole up on sides of sub-frame that is covered with tape but in my case it was covered with undercoating (new car stuff, not aftermarket) and tape. Took me 15 -20 minutes to discover where the threaded mounting hole was up on the sides of sub-frame. The muffler does make slight contact with the hitch now at various times, I'll loosen the mounting hardware on the hitch sometime and see if I can move it enough to prevent that contact. Otherwise, decent fit. I did remove my muffler and for me, working off the floor of my garage, it seemed easier, overall. I did support the single pipe coming back to my muffler while the muffler was off the car. 172834


I loosened up the four mounting bolts, used a good size hammer and a block of wood and I was able to move the hitch towards the back of my car so the muffler no longer vibrates against the hitch. Sweet! With that I give the hitch five stars now!!

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

received my trailer hitch on Thursday and took Friday afternoon off from work to install it, not knowing how long it would take. Upon opening the box, everything I needed was there and the hitch was in great condition. You never know how shippers will handle heavier objects, but the box seems a good fit for the hitch. With everything all laid out, I proceeded to use my Dremel tool to enlarge the two from mounting holes under the car to accept the carriage bolts and supporting bracket that had to be fished from one side to another via the "fishing" wire. This was a handy and ingenious device that allowed for easy transfer of bracket and bolt through the front hole and pulled through the back hole. Once all four bolts and brackets were in place, I laid on the ground with the hitch on my chest and easily lifted it into place. I had read that I would have to lower my exhaust to put the hitch in, but it was not necessary. There were two spacer blocks that I added to the front bolts to even out the hitch. When everything was in place, I tightened all of the bolts and was complete. I had a hitch ball from my other car, so I transferred to the ball bracket and was done. In all it took about an hour and a half from start to finish. 138555

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

Purchased this to go with a Thule hitch bike rack. Shipping time, and fitment were both exceptional. I was a little puzzled by the packaging, which seemed a little lacking (no packing material in the box, hardware bag wrapped around and taped sloppily to the hitch bar itself). Had to scrape out some welding slag from inside the receiver that was interfering with the bike rack, but no big deal. The main issue I had was torquing the main bolts that attach the bar to the car's unibody. The included "handle" nuts that you stick inside the frame wanted to turn when I was getting the bolts locked down, such that it was actually bending and pulling the entire handles inside the frame. I was unable to get them to the full 75 ft-lbs. of torque, but they're still pretty darn tight. I don't think it'll be going anywhere. 63126


No problems at all so far with the receiver bar.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

Extremely well made hitch that fit to the bolt configuration of the car perfectly. There was only one problem. This is a 2003 car that has 90,000 miles on it and many winters of salt. The 14mm "bumper bolts" that the hitch attaches to to prevent vertical movement snapped off rather than spinning. I put WD40 on the bolts twice a day for two days before trying to remove them and I applied it liberally while trying to take the bolts off. Instructions say, "Step 1 lower exhaust." Use WD40 and a thin screwdriver to remove the rubber bumper that attaches to the arm welded to the muffler. I sprayed WD40, pushed the screw driver in, more WD40, pushed more until the screwdriver went all the way through. Lots more WD40 and it eventually slid off. That was enough to get the hitch between the bumper and the muffler pipe. No need to take the muffler off completely. Last bit of advice is to put some thin but strong thread around the bolt's very last thread. Put bolt into the frame, then put the thread through the washer, place the washer into the frame, then gently pull and jiggle and the whole thing will eventually line up and the bolt will pull through. Hoping for some ideas on what to do about the broken bolts. I'm using this with a cargo carrier, so worst case I can use web straps to the car to prevent it from moving vertically.. 19616

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Sportframe in Trailer Hitch

Hint My car, a Ford Focus ZX3 hatch back required one hole drilled. I first mounted the hitch with the other three bolts, and then drilled the hole for the fourth bolt as directed. The problem then was how to remove the burr that extended on the blind side of the car’s frame where I couldn’t reach? Hint 1) I used a medium size Allen wrench, the long end secured in a drill motor. I inserted the small end into the hole by tilting it and proceeded to free spin it on high speed in side then drew back unto the inside surface with the burr, it removed easily. Hint 2) I used a combination of heavy thread or fish line could be used, and wire to insert the last bolt. First, fish the bent wire with small hook on end through the ½” hole you drilled and back out the access hole, then hook the thread and draw it back through. Second, thread it through the washer block and tie it around the tip of the bolt and trim excess. Third fish the washer through the access hole and using the bent wire position it over the ½” hole, then pull on the thread as you feed the bolt through, while assisting with bent wire. After bolt is extending through pull and rotate it, until the square neck of the carriage bolt aligns with the square hole of the washer and fully extends down. Finally add conical washer and nut and tightened. . 5228

Draw tight has a great reputation and we believe this a great product for our application. The Etrailer team speaks English and treated me like a member of their personal family (with 15 grandchildren I really appreciate this atmosphere. This concept of service and follow up is a concept our politicians should emulate...I believe the Etrailer team "really did build this business with customer satisfaction in mind". Rose took my order like she was helping her own grandpa and George sent me a subsequent email confirming my order and expediting my order with an upgraded shipping service...just to show appreciation for my business. Today I received another follow up to make sure I was satisfied. I am an old retired doctor and I like to do my own projects and with 6 grown children and 15 grandchildren I have been frustrated with products and especially DIY directions. Not this time! My 11 year old granddaughter took one side of the hitch and I took the other side and WE completed the operation in less than 30 minutes. Not bad for an old doctor and a young nurse. Last word from the old doctor to the Etrailer team "People don't care how much you know...until they know how much you care" God bless you all Yours for the best products and service Dr. Gill 121442

  • Recommended Solution for Carrying 4-Bikes on 2013 Nissan Altima
  • Yakima bike racks, including the DoubleDown # Y02424 you referred to are not compatible with Class I hitches, like the Draw-Tite # 24796 your Altima would use. Additionally, due to the low tongue weight capacity of the Class I hitch, both the bike rack and the hitch manufacturers both agree that no more than two bikes should be carried on a Class I hitch. Adding additional bikes would place too much weight too far away from the receiver opening, and would exert enough leverage on the hitch...
