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.

Pretty easy to install. Ran into two issues the third screw with the washer on is too short and I had to replace it with another screw that was a little longer. Second issue I ran into was, the whole for the attachment doesn't fit any store bought receiver adapters. It just doesn't connect where the holes supposed to meet. 705914

This Class I trailer hitch features a weld stop inside the receiver, so only Class I hitch accessories will fit. For a hitch adapter that will work with this trailer hitch I recommend the Brophy Hitch Adapter # HTAD
Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver
because it is compatible with Class I hitches.

Used hitch to carry wheelchair. Worked so good that when we traded the car, I purchased one for the new car. Instructions were spot on for both hitches. 672589

Chevrolet Malibu

Product received a day before it was to scheduled to be here. Put it on in no time. My Malibu didn't have the access hole quite as close to the other holes and the access holes were just a touch smaller than the metal plates but a little bending of the hole area made enough room and made it work. The bumper bolt hole in the hitch may have been a touch low but using a jack and a crow-bar the bolt went in. Also, that bolt was a bit to short because when I tried to put the washer and nut on the nut couldn't catch the threads so I used the bumper nut that I originally removed and it tightened right down. Overall the installation had its quirks but I am still happy with the results for the price. 392777

The access holes had to be made a little larger to install the bolts & plates. Actually it was an easy install. 355355

Great Product .... easy install . very Happy with product and service !!! 137443

The hitch did not need drilling to install. However some access holes needed to be widened in order to fit the bolt supports. Also the bumper bolt was to short to effectively hold the hitch to the bumper support. 121047

Good Product Installation was not too hard. Fishing the hardware through the frame IS a real picnic!!!!!! Overall I rate this a good product> 1125

Easy as the web site says. Shipment arrived next day for 99 cents and the installation was very easy. No drilling required, just bolt it into place. 137

  • Enlarging Frame Access Hole to Install Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch # 24656 on 2001 Chevy Malibu
    The install instructions of the Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch # 24656 do indeed call for enlarging the diamond-shaped access hole. There are several methods of accomplishing this. The hole only needs to be enlarged slightly, so using a Dremel Tool and cutting/grinding a small notch on either side of the opening would probably be the easiest method. You could also use a file or a hammer and cold chisel to enlarge the hole.

  • Installation Instructions for Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch # 24656 on 2001 Chevy Malibu
    Off the right, I've linked you to the installation instructions for the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24656. I'll also send you a .pdf copy in a separate email. The installation involves slightly enlarging an access hole in the frame so that a block washer can be fed into the frame member. Using a rotary (Dremel) tool is an easy way to remove the small amount of material necessary to allow the hardware to fit. I'll link you to a helpful article that shows how to fishwire the hardware...

  • Will Enlarging Holes on 2002 Chevy Malibu to Install a Draw-Tite Hitch # 24656 Weaken the Frame
    If you just opened the holes a little bit like the installation instructions said to do you should be alright. However, without actually seeing the modifications that you made I can not say for certain. If you followed the instructions on enlarging the access holes the integrity of the frame on your 2001 Chevy Malibu should be intact and would not be weakened at all, or enough to make a significant difference. I attached in the installation instructions for this product below.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Use with Draw Tite Hitch on 2003 Chevy Malibu
    With Class I hitches like the Draw Tite part # 24656 that is recommended for your 2003 Chevy Malibu you have to go with the ball mount that the manufacturer recommends otherwise the warranty of the hitch is voided. The Class I hitches aren't rated for very much weight so when you go with a different drop or length the leverage put on the hitch is different and the manufacturers are very cautious. For this hitch the recommended ball mount is the part # 3592 which then for a hitch ball you'd...
