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 - 2012 Ford Fusion - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2012 Ford Fusion will be installing the draw type hitch part number 24865 this is what are hitch once it is installed. And here is a couple of measurements that will assist you in selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pin all hole to the outermost head of the bumper five and a half inches on the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 12 inches this will assist a selecting accessories such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. First we need to lower the exhaust before we can install our hitch to do this we will take a little spray of lubricant and spray the rear tube host exhaust fans. Now before I remove the rubber hangers we have to take a safety strap and put under the exhaust so it does not fall too far. Now and if the exhaust lowered we go ahead in installing our hardware into the frame we have got two attachment points this are holes that are already pre-built in the frame by the manufacturer our four attachment points we need to take a pull wire that provided in our install kit and go through the attachment point using the rear attachment point as an access hole then we will slide on a block in seven 16th carriage bolt.

Go ahead and fit that up into the frame. You can pull that into position and I go ahead and leave my bolt leader on as it will make it easier to fit it our pull wire through the hitch and now push our hardware back up into the frame for our rear fastener, were going to use the reverse pull method we will go ahead and put our block and bolt on the bolt leader before we put it on the frame. First we will fit the bolt into the frame and then the block and then pull it back in to the same hole. That gets all of our hardware in the frame for the driver side now repeat the same process on the passenger sides. Alright now were ready to go ahead and install the hitch good idea to get an extra help of hand to help you hold the hitch and place while you install your fasteners a conical tooth washer for the tooth of the washer facing the hitch in a seven 16 knot.

As we put the hitch up into position we fit up over the exhaust. Fit up all wire down to the attachment points and then put up the positions and pull the wire. Point install each fastener and finger tight until we get them all in place. Now that there are fasteners install we can go ahead and tighten down. Once we have all our fasteners tighten down we can go ahead and tort the specifications as indicated in the instructions now with all our fasteners torts of specifications we can go ahead and reinstall the exhaust.

We will move our safety strap and now we complete the install of our draw type hitch part number 24865 on our 2012 Ford Fusion.

Great for my bike rack. Installed on my Ford Fusion Hybrid in less than 30 mins. Crawling under the car a supporting the exhaust and the hitch with a bunch of blocks of wood wasn't easy, neither was torquing the bolts to 50lb, but I was extremely happy with the final install in just 30 mins. The pull wires are a great invention. 186710

Fairly easy to install once I got my car up on some Jack's. I use it to carry around my bike and it's worked great for that. Would install another if I get a different car. 523619

Needed a hitch strictly for a bike rack on my wife's MkZ. Oh yeah... I had a tight time limit to get it and install it or have it installed if I was not able to. Thanks to help of a great etrailer customer service lady Molly S, I got an email with update info saying the hitch was shipped (very quickly I may add). This took a lot of pressure off me. It arrived when promised and the installation was easier than I was prepared for. I had the job done in a short time. The hitch works perfectly for our needs. I would recommend etrailer without hesitation. 505144

I installed 2 of these years ago. I was a lot younger 88 now. I did do the wiring harness not so much weight there. I decided to let someone else do the hitch for me. The instructions & videos are great ! There is my oil change man, I'll ask him. I owe him, he rotated my tires for free. You fellows keep doing the excellent work you are doing now, wish I could say more. I would recommend you & your product to everyone. 389310

Ordered on a late Tuesday afternoon, and arrived early Friday afternoon. Great communication from George J once order placed. Trailer hitch heavier than expected- which is a great thing- and it fit perfectly just like in the video. Etrailer provides such great service, excellent product descriptions and installation videos that I expected to pay more, but their prices are in line with other on line retailers. Very happy with purchase, will buy again. Hitch is barely visible once installed and is very rigid. Shown with Yakima platform style bike rack. Trunk still opens and closes with no interference. 567783

This hitch fit my car as expected and was pretty easy to install. I have a Kuat Transfer bike rack mounted on the hitch and it is working well. I rate 4/5 because the paint needed touch-up in several places due to scratches. Would definitely order again. 549802

Great hitch! Super fast shipping too! Really glad I discovered etrailer. I had a snafu installing it and the nut in the frame kept moving around on me, but I was able to finally get it back centered! The exhaust on my Sport is larger than most other Fusions so it made it only slightly trickier. Plus I didn't have a fancy lift to do it on. I took my time and with the snafu still only took me less than an hour to install. I'm only using this so far for a bike rack and the only issue I have is the tool that came with the Thule rack doesn't fit due to the chain loops in the way. Oh well I just use a ratchet anyway! Only complaint I have is the chain loops are welded off-center, which isn't too noticeable and I wasn't going to go through the hassle of sending it back just for that, but still a little disappointing on the QC of this hitch. Can't expect anything to be perfect these days anyway! 15080

Installed on 2010 Ford Fusion with 44,000 miles. Nice experience. Purchased hitch on a Sunday evening, and was delivered on Thursday afternoon the same week. Reviewed the installation for the 2010 Fusion on the e-trailer web-site prior to purchase, and reviewed it again prior to installation on Saturday afternoon. Instructions and video were excellent. Took approximately 2 hours start to finish. Install time was all-in, included watching the video, opening the box and inspecting the parts, as well as clean-up and putting all the tools away. For installation, I have three floor jacks, and supported the car on two under the rear shocks, and supported and lowered the exhaust system with the third. Raised the car wheels about 10 inches off the ground gave adequate installation clearance. Used a 26 inch rubber tie-down, attached each end to the springs, tying a knot in it to increase tension. Using the tie down was a safety precaution. Used PB Blaster on the rubber hangers to help release. Inserted screw drivers to help get rubber hangers over pin stops, while prying with a 2.5 foot crowbar. Pins were a bit rusted. Lowered the exhaust with the jack. Installed using technique shown in video. Pulled the hitch toward the rear of the car because there is some play, and then torqued down the bolts to 50 ft-lbs with a 17mm socket. Raised exhaust and reinstalled the 3 rubber hangers over the pins after spraying again with PB Blaster. Could reinstall rubber hangers by hand by doing so. Good and easy install, no drilling required. Just installed today, so no experience yet with use. 171989

After 1 year, etrailer followed up with me to see how the hitch was working out. No problems with the hitch. Use it to haul my bikes around town, and have taken on a long trip down the local turnpike with no problems. No rust yet.

All I can say is wow. The trailer hitch went in without a "hitch". I could have done it myself but I had someone hold up the other end for a few minutes while I secured the other side. I'm sure I could have rigged a way to hold up the other end by myself but who would get me a beer when I was empty. When I first picked up the hitch from the shipping company (super fast shipping btw) I noticed how stout and heavy this hitch was. I was pleasantly surprised! Everything was packed awesome even though the box could have been a bit smaller. I have a review for the wiring kit that is recommended for my Ford Fusion and this review parallels that where the direction and the awesome online video tutorial guided me into installation. Even though everything was pretty straight forward. Cuddo's to etrailer for providing awesome guidance and support for the products they sell and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others! 73473

The products are great. No complaints what so ever. I figured it was best to get 200 dollars worth of towing equipment for my quad and trailer than to spend 45k for a brand new truck!Thanks for the follow up.

Install went well. took more time to jack and block up back of car than it did to install, Hitch functions well. would suggest installers use torque wrench per spec's. because when you are compressing the washers and several layers of sheet metal you will want to stop applying torque as it feels 'mushy" when you start to tighten joint, (for fear of stripping the threads) but in fact you need to keep going and crush all these metals flat before final torque is achieved. 647756

I am very happy with the trailer hitch I bought for my 2012 Lincoln MKZ. It came in just as advertised and was easy to install although I had my mechanic do it because it's much easier to do on a lift. The videos on Etrailer are also very helpful for a DIY guy like myself. I was able to install the wiring harness myself and again the video of the installation for my specific vehicle was very clear. I highly recommend these people. 590729

Went in just like video showed. My son and I had it in place in less than an hour. The hardest part was running the hot wire from the battery back to the trunk for the light kit. Fortunately, grandson was around and he's wired up a bunch of amplifiers and knew exactly how to run the hot wire back to the trunk. Took another 45 minutes because he was careful and didn't want to break the trim around the doors bottom framework. Very pleased and recommend!!!! 588176

Everything arrived quickly and in good order. Hitch fit perfectly and installation instructions were very clear. Installation was fairly easy. Wiring fit well also but, the instructions for running the wire under the car could have been more helpful. When I need a hitch and/or wiring for another vehicle I will definitely come back. I would refer etrailer.com to a friend. 579380

The hitch arrived as promised. I had my mechanic install the hitch and he told me the hardest thing about the installation was getting the muffler off he rubber hangers. Other than that there were not issues getting it in. 568495

Great product! And as many other reviews have stated, amazingly easy to install. I did not time it exactly but I think I had it completed somewhere between 1 to 1 1/2 hours. I bought it only to haul a bike rack. While I have not yet used it, I did test fit the rack and bikes. Works beautifully. Highly recommend etrailer! Great experience. Would definitely order from here again. 550362

This trailer hitch was a great investment. It went on my car easily and has held up to the weight of my carrier and wheelchair. I had a Ford Fusion. I now have a Ford Edge and I plan to purchase another hitch for it. These are well made and the price is right. If you are looking for a hitch consider buying from etrailer. 492690

My Wife and I took our bikes out this weekend using our new hitch on her Fusion Hybrid. I received the kit Friday and had it installed a short time afterwards. The video showing the installation was very helpful and the threading attachments worked perfectly. Also worth mentioning is that I definitely wanted to see an installation on a Fusion Hybrid before ordering to ensure hitch fit. ETRAILER has an installation video on YouTube on a similar car that we own, thus sold at that point. We're very happy with this hitch in function and appearance. 396779

Took less that an hour to install. Very easy and only basic tools needed. Didn't even have to lift car on jacks. What I like the most about this hitch is that it is barely visible when looking at the car from the back. Doesn't ruin the way the car looks at all. 391147

Hitch mounts very easily with the included hardware. bought the draw- tite so my customer would not need to worry about the support straps that the curt requires. My only problem with the hitch was that they did not weld the receiver tube on evenly making it look like it is bent. Not what I like to present to my customer as a final product. I will go back to the curt hitches next time as I have always been happy with them. This defect however does not affect the performance of the hitch with a trailer but will make a bike rack or cargo carrier look crooked. Made in Mexico. etrailer shipping and processing was excellent. 321444

  • Trailer Hitch and Ball Mount Recommendations for a 2010 Ford Fusion
  • Rise or drop is not measured to the top of the ball but instead to the top of the platform on the ball mount that holds the ball. So that is going to change things a little. I have included a link to a help article that explains how to measure for rise/drop to tow a trailer level. For a hitch I recommend going with Curt hitch # C11390 for your 2010 Ford Fusion. You mentioned that some Class I hitches have a tab in them meaning some Class II accessories will not fit. This hitch does not...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with the 2011 Ford Fusion
  • You can pull a trailer with any class of trailer hitch, you just need to be under the weight capacity of either the hitch or vehicle, whichever is lower. Therefore, for your 2011 Ford Fusion I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24865 which has a 200 lb tongue weight and 2,000 lb gross trailer weight rating. Please keep in mind that the owner's manual does not recommend towing a trailer with the vehicle so they do not list any towing capacity. In addition...

  • Will Draw Tite Hitch 24865 Fit 2012 Ford Fusion Sport with Dual Exhaust
  • Yes, the Draw Tite hitch part # 24865 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2012 Ford Fusion Sport that has dual exhaust. If you check out the install instructions that I attached you can see a diagram of this hitch being installed on a dual exhaust model. I attached a video that shows the hitch being installed on a dual exhaust model as well.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for RadRover E-Bike Carried by 2012 Ford Fusion
  • The perfect bike rack we have for your Radrover E-Bike is the Thule EasyFold part # TH903202 which has a max wheelbase of 48 inches and a capacity of 65 lbs. This rack can also fit Class I hitches like what are available for your 2012 Ford Fusion like the Draw Tite # 24865.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 2010 Ford Fusion Towing Haul Master Trailer
  • For your Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24865, the best I have to offer is the Curt Class I # C45024 that has a 5 rise and is 9-9/16 long. This will get you to 17-1/4 inches and give you the clearance needed from your bumper as well. This will put your trailer about 2.5 inches down on the tongue. I recommend the # 19258 for a 2 inch diameter ball or the # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. You will want to make sure that your trailer weight...

  • Comparing CURT Trailer Hitch and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for a 2011 Ford Fusion
  • A 7/16 inch bolt and a 1/2 inch bolt will both have a much higher capacity than the hitch or vehicle frame rails. Since both installation instructions for CURT, # 11390, and Draw-Tite, # 24865, require fishwiring hardware through the frame rails, the slightly smaller Draw-Tite 7/16 inch bolts will be easier to fishwire into place. The other major difference is the CURT hitch does require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for any non-trailer load such as a bike rack or cargo...
