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 - 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2009 Chevy Cobalt, well be installing Draw Tide Hitch part number, 24745. Now, before we begin our installation, here are a few measurements to help you when selecting accessories. From the center of the hitch, pinhole to the outermost part of the bumper is four inches. And from the top of the receiver, tube to the ground is 14 inches. This will help you when selecting accessories such as a cargo carrier or a bike rack. Now, lets go ahead with our installation.

Now, to begin our installation, well need to remove the plastic appearance panel behind the truck pan. Now, we will not be reinstalling this. To remove the appearance panel, well need to undo the two ten millimeter bolts here and the four clips on the top side. With that out of the way, we need to locate our attachment points. Now, all four-attachment points on this vehicle will be drilled.

To locate the forward most attachment points well find the 3/8 inch hole in the end of the frame. On the frame reinforcement bracket. Now, that weve pinpointed that. We can drill our half-inch hole for our hardware. And well repeat this process on the drivers side.

With our holes drilled, well use the fish wire, the half-inch carriage bolt, and the quarter by one by three spacer. We can then fish our fish wire through the hole we just drilled toward the access hole forward on the vehicle. Well bring the fish wire out that access hole, where we can put the spacer block on. And thread the carriage bolt in. We now can pull, the fish wire through the access hole, bringing our spacer block and half-inch carriage bolt out the hole that we just drilled.

And well do this for both the passenger side, as well as the driver side. We can now loosely fit our hitch into position. Well place the hitch up. And just run the hex nut on the carriage bolt loosely. Well now use the hitch as a template to drill our rearmost attachment points. Now, that we have our holes in the impact bar, well again use our fish wire, the carriage bolt, and the spacer block to fish the wire through the hole we just drilled out the side of the impact bar. We can then attach our spacer and our carriage bolt to our fish wire and pull it through to the hole we drilled. Well now use the half-inch lock washer and the half-inch nut to loosely secure the hitch in place. With that done, well need to mover back to our forward most mount, where well remove the nut and put on our inaudible tooth washer with the teeth facing the washer on. And then replace the nut. Now, all our hardware is loosely installed, we can go ahead and tighten it down and torch it to specification as indicated in the instructions, which will complete our installation of Draw Tide Hitch, part number 24745 on our 2009 Chevy Cobalt.

The product's fit and function is as advertised. Installation went smoothly aside of the fact of drilling through rust and rocks/sand in the frame channels and having to use two drill bits. ( It is a Minnesota car used on gravel roads.) That is nothing that has reflection on the quality of the product. I would recommend this company and their products as well as purchase from etrailer.com again. 476710

Found this product on a YouTube search for do-it-yourself trailer hitch installs for my 08 Cobalt to install a bike rack. It made the actual installation relatively easy since I knew exactly what to expect and which tools I needed. It comes with the bolt fish wire, but I ordered an extra anyway. Cheap insurance in case I stretched/broke the included one. Overall it installed just like the video showed, took about an hour. Didn't even need to jack up the car. A few recommendations: 1. Wear disposable-but-decent gloves when installing. You'll keep your hands cleaner, and won't get hot metal splinters when drilling the car frame. 2. Be prepared to clean up said metal shavings when done. 3. Get a couple of disposable drill bits for drilling the holes in the vehicle frame. I don't know if it was the vehicle metal or what, but I dulled a couple of 1/2" bits just making 4 holes. 4. I'm not a car expert, but might be a good idea to treat the newly drilled holes with paint or anti-rust spray before installing the hitch to help prevent rust from taking advantage of the exposed raw metal. 425185

This hitch is everything I was expecting it to be. It is a sturdy well assembled hitch. I use it to haul a push lawn mower, other outdoor items as well. It is secured well to the car, I have no worries about using this hitch or worries about it failing. This is my second hitch from this company and will purchase again next time I trade cars as I did this time. 653428

So far so good... I have had this hitch now for 1 year, it has turned my little Pontiac G5 into quite the hauling machine. Installation was a little bit tricky in that I needed to drill some holes in what seemed to be hardened steel of the car frame, so I had to invest in a Cobalt drill bit set... But that is not the fault of the hitch. Fitment was generally pretty good, they even give you a slick little spring wire Gizmo to pull the bolts through the tubing to get them into place. I have used the hitch to add a carrying tray so I had enough space for three of us to go on a ski vacation, and there have been several times where my truck was not available, so I could use my small Pontiac with this hitch to pull a light-duty trailer and haul stuff around. Attached picture shows the carrying tray installed in the hitch on the back of the car, it held two large coolers, and the roof rack that held the Cargo Carrier was also from etrailer. Thanks for some great deals and useful products! 590967

Bought a new Canoe, I found out a Trailer came with it. Needed to quickly get my Chevy Cobalt a hitch. Looked around thought i could do the wiring (cause i took electrical in High School) mistake, but in a pinch bought a wiring kit from another store. Overall listen to the directions they know what they are saying. So far it has done a great job of going to BWCA with little to no issues. I only wish they would include a cover for the hitch opening. That is splitting hairs. Overall it is great and works perfectly with my Cobalt. This did exactly what it needed to do. Also use it with a bike rack and it works awesome. To be clear the instructions are clear, I just thought i could save time by leaving it up while i drill holes for 3 and 4...nope you have to take the whole thing off. I wrestled with that for 3 hours before i just decided to take it off and follow the directions. PS don't crimp or bend the bolt wire thing that comes with it also. IT WAS A PAIN when i accidentally stepped on it and had to redo the coil on it. 5/5 would recommend 381003

This hitch kit is exactly as described, perfect fit, and high quality. The only problem I had was drilling the holes in the bumper. The metal was too hard for even brand new bits (4). I should have bought the recommended bits from eTrailer. 266293

The product itself is great... Fit and function are exceptional! However installation is slightly harder then they would lead you to believe. The holes you must drill take some considerable effort. If you've got the tools and a little working knowledge you will be fine... Strong new drill bits are a must! 248889

Purchased the trailer hitch and wiring harness from etrailer.com and it was an easy installation with the proper pictures of the underside of the car, which showed the exact location of where the holes should be drilled. The only problem was that the 'fishing wire' was not included in the kit as stated, so I had to come up with a solution which was to install the bolts from above thru the trunk pan. The wiring harness installation was so easy after watching the youtube video which was perfectly illustrated by the video and understandable. 149704

Came well packed. Easy install but as others stated, an additional wire fish would have been extremely helpful. Used the online video to prepare my car before the hitch arrived so install went super fast. 144049


Comments

I still have my trailer hitch and have added attachments that make it invaluable to me. The car I put it on had a very small roof, so short that I could not put two roof rack bars far enough apart to properly tie down my paddle board. I have a rack bar that goes in the trailer hitch that allows me to tie the boards down properly. Additionally, I purchased a carrier that plugs into the hitch that allows me to put things outside the trunk, increasing my carrying capacity and it keeps dirty things outside of the car. Love the hitch!

The product works great! I love my new hitch! It took me a long time to install it however because I did not have a powerful enough drill. Make sure that you have good metal drill bits and a powerful enough drill before you start this job. I also want to mention that you should also have a special pry bar for those plastic tabs so that you don't damage them. Other than that the product works great and I am 100% satisfied. 142985

My trailer hitch was made from thick steel. Welds are clean and appear to have good penetration. Perfect fit to attachment points on my car. The paper directions are fairly good as is the video on etrailer. Very happly with my trailer hitch. Information about what drill or other tool would be best to drill through the very hard steel of the rear bumper bar would have been very helpful. I dulled two cobalt steel bits and worked up a good sweat drilling two holes. 133896

Very satisfied with the hitch kit. It was fairly simple to install, the bolt wire lead was very helpful in getting the bolts through the frame. I couldn't have done the job without it. I would recomend this kit to other people for their vehicle. The price for the kit is very reasonable, I could not get it cheaper around here. 93257

Overall, I am pleased with the end result of the installation of the trailer hitch. However, I am somewhat dissatisfied with the removal of the appearance panel. I was able to re-use my appearance panel with a lot of modification. My actual installation time for the hitch alone was about 1:30 because the bumper was difficult to drill through. Also, my exhaust was right in the way of my drill even after I dropped the exhaust. My total installation time including the hitch, wiring kit, and appearance panel modification was approximately 3 hours. 70784

I purchased the hitch for a two bike rack for our Cobalt which I tow behind a motorhome. Hitch installation was not difficult as the video on the web site was very helpful. Drilling into the frame was easy but the bumper was very hard. It took several drill sizes to work up to the half inch hole. The bolt leader worked great. Finished install looks good. Thanks. 61711

Product arrived bent and would not fit vehicle. It was the weekend and needed to install on vehicle (e-trailer support was closed). Was able to bend back with a vice (very soft metal). Even when corrected the receiver was not centered on the vehicle (off to Port by 1"). Quality of product was low. 29537



- 24745
by:

Good product. The only difficulty in installation was that the muffler wouldn't move far enough out of the way to use a standard length drill bit. Then, the shortest bit that I could find that was long enough to reach past the muffler was so long that I had to get the car higher on blocks than my floor jack would lift. A bit of a nuisance, but only in that one point. 25154

Was delivered with in three days ,well boxed directions were vage at fist until l held the hitch up to the car then directions made since.

Installation was easy except for pressure required to drilling upward for the amount of time to drill four holes. Did not have to lower muffler to drill just pull it aside. 1/2 inch wire pull works great, one comes with hardware but for 83 cents would order an extra to hold bolts in place while raising hitch or in case one gets stretched out. Would be hard to do without one. Hitch is hard to notice without draw bar in place. Very nicely tucked under rear bumper. 5909

If you instead have a 1998 Honda CR-V which is what you entered into our fitguide then you will want to use the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13314 instead.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2005 Chevy Cobalt
  • Both the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch # 24745 and the Curt # C11430 are confirmed to fit your base model (non-SS) 2005 Chevy Cobalt so either unit is an option. Between the two models though I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24745 because it allows for a bit of an easier install process and also doesn't require you to add a stabilizing strap when using the hitch for non-trailer loads (bike racks, cargo carriers, etc) like with the Curt alternative.

If you are seeking more peace of mind when hauling accessories you can use the Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap # 18050 which is adjustable for your applications. This will not increase your 200 lb tongue weight or your 2,000 lb trailer hitch rating, but will help stabilize the load of an accessory like...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Chevy Cobalt
  • Based on the size of the food cart you have the only option I can recommend for you would be to install a hitch on your 2006 Chevy Cobalt like # 24745 or part # 24756 if you have an SS model and tow a small trailer. The dimensions of the food cart are too big to fit on a cargo carrier. The hitch I recommended comes with pin and clip. You will still need a ball mount. For a ball you can use # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). You will need to check the coupler...

  • Compatibility of 2-Inch Cargo Carrier with 1-1/4-Inch Class I Trailer Hitch on 2010 Chevy Cobalt

You do not want to use an adapter for a 2-inch cargo carrier because that adapter will cut your hitch's capacity by 50-percent, which is 100-lbs. This means that if you used an adapter like # HTAD your combined cargo weight plus the weight of your cargo carrier itself could not exceed 100-lbs total....

However due to the very limited weight capacity of the Class I receiver, both the hitch and bicycle rack manufacturers all agree that any bike rack used on a Class I receiver should not be used to carry any more than two bikes.

I went out into our warehouse and the two front holes are 31-12 inches apart on center. The holes will get drilled into your impact bar at the rear of your vehicle. You would want to line the hitch up and use it as a template when drilling the holes. I would NOT recommend you attempt to drill the holes prior to having the hitch.

  • These are great questions that I would be happy to help you with! First you would want to start with a trailer hitch for your 2008 Chevy Cobalt sedan. For that you would want the part # 24745. This is a confirmed fit for your vehicle and it comes with a ball mount and a pin and clip. For hitch balls you would need either the part # 19258 for a 2 inch ball or # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. The trailer you plan to tow will be how you determine which ball you would need. If you contact...

  • Ways to Stop Exhaust Rattle After Hitch Install on a 2006 Chevy Cobalt
  • If the aftermarket exhaust you installed on your 2006 Chevy Cobalt is smaller than the factory exhaust one would think that the chance for exhaust rattle would be slimmer than if you had the factory exhaust. However, if you were to encounter exhaust rattle we put together a video that details the best way to fix the rattling. I attached that link to the right.

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch Installation Video for a 2008 Chevy Cobalt Coupe
  • I have good news for you, but we have not had a chance to do a specific video of the 2008 model coupe. We are at the mercy of our customers who come in for installs to determine what year, makes, and models we are able to shoot videos for. In my research, I found that the 2008 and 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupes have identical frames because they are the same model generation, so the video of the Draw-Tite hitch # 24745 being installed on the 2009 coupe will be identical to the installation...

  • Compatibility of Thule Trunk Mounted Bike Rack, Part # TH910 with 2009 Pontiac G5 with Spoiler
  • Although the Thule Passage is a fit for the 2009 Pontiac G5, Thule does not recommend using the trunk mount racks on vehicles with spoilers. According to the manufacturer, the racks are not test fit on spoiler equipped vehicles, and a fit cannot be guaranteed. Your best bet would be to go with a hitch and a hitch mounted bike rack. I recommend the Draw-Tite Class I receiver hitch, part # 24745 and the Reese 2 bike rack, part # 63120.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2008 Chevy Cobalt Sedan
  • First place to check is the how many doors do you have? 2 doors equals coupe and 4 equals sedan. Do you see any badges at the rear of the vehicle on the trunk that say SS or Sport? If you can get back to me with that info I can see what you'd need.

  • Confirmed Hitch Fits for 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt Standard Sedan
  • The three 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches offered for your 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt sedan (the non-SS version) are shown on the linked page. Hitch # 24756 does not fit your vehicle. This fits only 2010 SS Coupe and SS Sedan models. The Draw-Tite hitch that fits your car is part # 24745. The two Draw-Tite hitches use different mounting points on the two vehicles and so they are not interchangeable.

  • Choosing the Correct Trailer Hitch and Accessories for a 2008 Chevy Cobalt LT1
  • For the 2008 model year, the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24756 fits the Sport, Sport Sedan, and SS Coupe models of the Chevy Cobalt. If you have a regular sedan or coupe model you would need # 24745. The underside of each may look similar but the mounting locations and hitch design are different which is why there are different hitches for each. I have included links to the installation instructions for both hitches for you to view. If you require the first hitch, 24756, the correct...
