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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Scion tC - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2007 Scion TC, well be installing Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 24827. Before we begin our installation, here are a few measurements to help you with selecting accessories such as a cargo carrier or a bike rack. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 10-3/4 inches, and from the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost part of the bumper is 4 inches. Now, lets go ahead with our install. To begin our installation, well need to remove the two plastic rivets that fasten the fascia tabs to the vehicle. After weve done that, well enlarge the access hole on the passenger side of the frame rail in order to allow us to install our spacing.

We can do that with a 3/8 inch drill, as seen here. Now that weve enlarged our hole, well feed the pull wire with the spacer block and the carriage bolt through the hole that we enlarged, and out the two mounting locations here. Now with our mounting hardware installed in the passenger side, well go ahead and spray paint the hole we enlarged to protect the metal from rust. On the driver side, well need to remove the tow hook. With the tow hook removed, we can go ahead and put it aside, as it will not be reinstalled on the vehicle.

After removing the tow hook, well have exposed our two mounting locations on the driver side. Were ready to put our hitch up into place. On the passenger side, well be using the conical toothed washers and the nuts with the teeth of the washer facing the hitch. On the driver side, well be using the conical toothed washers and the bolts, again making sure that the conical toothed washers teeth are facing the hitch. Now with all our hardware in place, we can go ahead and tighten it down and torque it to specification as indicated in the instructions.

We can then go ahead and reinstall the plastic rivets back into the bumper fascia, which will complete our install of Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 24827, on our 2007 Scion TC.

everything was easy to install and the instructions on youtube made it even easier. 612662

Great hitch. Glad I decided to go with this brand. Need two people at the end to hold hitch and secure the mounting nuts. Installation took about 35-40 minutes, hardest part was fishing the bolt and brackets through right side hole that had to be drilled to approx 1" diameter--be sure to have a good electric drill and several large metal drill bits up to 1" before starting install to make it easier. On the install itself, be patient and it will work with what comes with the hitch. Follow instructions provided exactly. Product arrived with no damage, on time and looks great on the car, barely even know it's there. Thanks! 29831

Got this for a Scion tC RS5. Was a little worried about clearance with the TRD exhaust but this was not an issue. My hitch did not come with the pull wires. Unfortunately I did not realize this until I had the car on jack stands and the holes drilled, so I had to make my own. Had to grind the corners down between the existing hole and the holes I drilled in order to get the bolt heads through. The paint chipped on the back end of the hitch brackets when I set it down, but that was easily fixed since I already had spray paint handy to coat the frame where I was drilling/grinding. Other than that the install was fairly simple. 75956

I'm road tripping this summer and wanted to bring my bike. So I purchased this hitch for mu TC. Installation was a breeze and etrailer was prompt during shipping and very communicative. Lots of helpful info on the product page and I was able to get the hitch on in no time at all. Bike rack fit the hitch without a problem. I would definitely buy from etrailer again! 397704

Mounted on perfect, drilling two hole in the car is pretty tough to do... I used a dremel instead which made it much easier to control and more precise (vs trying to hold a drill steady). I am able to tow some appliances around now when I move! 150355

Awesome product. Etrailer stayed in touch the whole time keeping me posted of my order. The hitch took minimal tools and time to install. I did it on my back in the drive way alone in just 45 minutes. The wire harness took 7 minutes and just plugged in. NO CUTTING! THANKS ETRAILER! 142514

As all other reviews state, making the hole bigger on the right side is a pain but once your able to get the screws throu its not so bad. Was a little tricky doing it by myself with no lift or help holding the hitch but was able to get it done and fully serves its purpose. 64896

Great product! Arrived with FREE upgraded shipping much quicker than expected. eTrailer maintains continuous communication and provides fantastic customer service. Don't be apprehensive about the "difficulty level" or instructions provided with this hitch, all brands require similar modification. Just be sure to read the instructions AND watch the video provided on the page. I knocked this project out in under 45 min with no complications :-) Hitch is very concealed and fits great on my lowered '09 tC! 63545

Sturdy construction, well made but the installatio was difficult. Most reviews said it only took 30-60 minutes but that's probably shorter than realistic. Drilling the holes in the frame didn't seem to leave enough room for the hardware to get through, and there was no details in the instructions on how to use the wire - which you HAVE to be careful of or you will loose the hardware in the frame. Also, you might need a tap for the driver side frame holes - they are tapped already but if you drive in the northern states they will be rusty and corroded. Once install it looks pretty good and seems very sturdy. My experience with etrailer was very good, I got an email every step in the process and very quick service. A+ 24188



- 24827

EXCELLENT PRODUCT! Install was a breeze. Just make sure you drill the holes in passenger side the correct way. They worked for me from side to side, rather than front to back. Overall install time was about 30 minutes. Product is hidden other than receiver piece. and works great for my jetski! 22408

The hitch looks awesome. It's so perfect there's nothing bad to say about it. Just look at the pictures. It fits in the frame perfectly and barely noticeable plus my bike rack fits just fine.

Installation took me about half an hour. Hardest part is enlarging the hole in the passenger side frame so the mounting bolts will fit into the frame. When all is said and done, the hitch looks great on the car. It hides away so you only see the receiver tube. 12450

Awesome hitch, awesome price Very well hidden - only the tongue/receiver is exposed behind car while the horizontal beam is under/behind the bumper cover. Perfect fit! Installation went pretty well too, as long as you have the right tools. The most difficult part was enlarging the hole to pass through spacers. Using the 3/8" drill bit, I just drilled multiple holes around the edge of original hole to effectively enlarge it. The fish wire worked great. It took me about 1hr to install it. 3058

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Class I, 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch and Hitch Mounted 2 Bike Rack for a Scion 2007 tC
  • You are correct. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24827, is one of the hitches that will fit on your 2007 Scion tC. I have included a link to the installation instructions below. The only other component you will need is a hitch mounted bike rack that is compatible with a Class I, 1-1/4 inch receiver hitch. I would suggest going with the lightest rack you can. The reason is that a Class I hitch only has 200 pounds of tongue weight capacity. After you add the weight of a rack and 2 bikes,...

  • Recommended Hitch and Trailer Wiring Harness for 2009 Scion tC
  • For towing a small utility trailer, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Receiver, part # 24827. You would also need a trailer wiring harness with 4-pole trailer connector, part # 118484. Although many trailer rental companies use adjustable couplers on their trailers, it would not be a bad idea to give them a call and ask what size trailer ball you will need. If you should need a 1-7/8 inch ball, use part # 19256. For a 2 inch ball, use part # 19258. You will want to keep...
