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. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Nissan Altima - Draw-Tite

Today on this 2012 Nissan Altima were going to install part number 24796 from Draw Tite. This is what the hitch looks like when its installed on the vehicle. Next well give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories, such as a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be 10 inches, and from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be five and three quarter inches. Now Ill go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed. The first thing we do is open up the trunk and get inside the vehicle.

Were going to remove the carpeting and the fiber board thats underneath. Next were going to go ahead and get underneath the vehicle. Some vehicles have a ground wire on the drivers side muffler. This one did not have, so we wont have to worry about disconnecting it for now. If it did, we would reconnect the wire when we were done with our install.

Now we need to disconnect the exhaust mufflers on each side. First off well spray down the clamp with some lubricant and then well loosen up the clamp. Then well go ahead and spray the exhaust away from the tailpipe. This will loosen up the muffler. Well spray down the hangers above the muffler to make it a little easier to slide apart.

Were done with this side, well go ahead and repeat the same process on the other side, since our vehicles dual exhaust. The next thing is to go ahead and look at the exhaust heat shields. We have to bend them away from the trunk pan so we have room to install our hitch. Just gently push them back toward the outside so we have some working room. Now well go ahead and lift the hitch up into position.

Well hold it up against the inside edge of the body work or the inside edge of the frame, and make sure you push it all the way toward the back. Now well go ahead and mark for our holes. What were going to do is use the hitch as a template. Were actually going to use some spray paint to mark our holes. Once our holes are marked well go ahead and lower the hitch out of the way. Well go ahead and locate the center of the marks, and then drill a pilot hole from the bottom up. Now well go to the inside of the vehicle and drill our holes out from the inside to the outside. Well drill out to the seven sixteenths hole. Now well go ahead and show you how the hardware will work with the hitch. On the inside there will be a stiffener plate added and two carriage bolts. Well go ahead and put the stiffener plate and the bolts together to show you how it goes on the inside. Before we permanently install them well take some sealant and apply that around the holes. Then well take our block and our blots and put them into place. Well also use something to put some weight on to hold the bolts down in place when we install our hitch. Now well go ahead and install the hitch. With an extra set of hands well push the hitch up and make sure we try not to push the bolts back in. Well install lock washers and nuts. Once everythings loosely installed well go ahead and tighten down the nuts and washers and then well torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. Now well go ahead and take our heat shields, push the back up against the hitch, but far enough where they wont vibrate against it. Then we need to go ahead and reinstall our exhaust. We reverse the procedure. Well slide the exhaust back onto the hanger and then connect the two pipes, and then tighten down the clamp. Now well get back into the trunk and reinstall the interior panels. That will do it for our install of part number 4796 from Draw Tite on our 2012 Nissan Altima.

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

  • Suggestions for the Best Hitch To Carry 2 Bikes on a 2009 Nissan Altima Hybrid Sedan
  • I recommend using the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch, item # 11352, over the Draw-Tite Class I Sportframe Trailer Hitch, item # 24796, on the 2009 Nissan Altima Hybrid, because the Curt hitch uses existing holes in the vehicles frame rail to install the hitch and does not require drilling into the bottom of the vehicles trunk pan.

  • Hitch for 2009 Nissan Altima Sedan That Provides Most Clearance for Kuat Sherpa 2 Bike Rack

  • We do offer several brands of Class I trailer hitch for your 2014 Nissan Altima, including the Draw-Tite # 24796, however none of the hitches for your Altima has the necessary weight capacity for use with a wheelchair carrier.
