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

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 Mazda 2 - Draw-Tite

Today on this 2012 Mazda 2 we'll be installing Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 24869. Here are a few measurements that will help you when you selecting accessories for your new hitch such as bike racks or cargo carriers. From the center of the hitch pin hole the outermost point of the bumper is 4-1/2 inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground will be 10-1/2 inches. Now let's begin our install. The first thing we'll need to do is lower the exhaust to give us more working room.

There will be two rubber hangers to remove, one in the rear of the vehicle and one towards the front. You can use pry bars to help in removing these or like in this case you can use a rubber hanger removal tool. With our exhaust lowered we'll now remove this bracket here. Next, we can point out our mounting locations. It will be these two holes here on the driver's side and these two on the passenger's side.

For these mounting points, we'll have to fish our hardware in using a bolt leader. We'll run it through the mounting location out to our access hole near the bumper. We'll then thread on our black and carriage bolt and pull them into place. And we'll repeat this for the other three mounting points leaving the bolt leaders on. Now with all of our hardware in the frame we'll get an extra set of hands to help us lift our hitch into position threading our bolt leader ends through the hitch mounts.

You want to make sure the bracket we removed on the driver's side stays under the hitch. With the hitch pushed up into position, we'll remove the bolt leader and install the conical toothed washer and nut with the teeth of the washer facing the hitch. We'll repeat this for all three other mounting points. Now we can tighten our bolts up and then torque them to specification as indicated in the instructions. With that done we'll next take the bracket we removed on the driver's side and connect it to the hitch which provides a mount for it.

Take note that the bracket has a tab on it that fits into the oblong hole. We'll put our bolt through the smaller hole and put our bracket into place using the provided hardware. With the hitch and bracket in place, the last thing we need to do is put up the exhaust and our install will be complete. And there you have it for our Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 24869 on our 2012 Mazda 2.

Installation was very straight forward. Great fit. High quality product. Great job etrailer on the follow-up on my order. PS- you need car ramps, the Mazda 2 is too low to the ground. 124307

Installation was easy with the kit, worth the price too. I've towed a lot of stuff with this on a Mazda 2 over the past year and it hasn't shown any problems. Installation could vary between a half hour and 1.5 at the most depending on your skill level. 462989

Excellent product shipped when they said it would be shipped . Installation directions were clear and installation went without any problems. I have a small car and plan on using the hitch for a bicycle rack and a small trailer for my canoe. 399974

Fit my Mazda 2 perfectly. Instructions were accurate but I would have been well served to read them closely before install. I did the install myself and it was not difficult, I just needed to understand the angle it had to go in to clear the rear muffler hanger. It fits great, you just have to stab it correctly. Having a helper would be good, but not necessary. Would recommend to a friend. 335296

This hitch is a great product and came with everything needed to install! The video of the installation was a good help to watch before the hitch got here. Came well packed as well. It only took me about 35-40 minutes to install and was a lot easier than I thought it would be! 185513

Good solid hitch receiver, quality hardware, clear installation instructions. Placing bolts with the leaders was a little dicey at first but we figured it out. Highly recommend the product. 149566

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation to Carry Bikes on a 2012 Mazda2
  • On both the discontinued Hidden Hitch trailer hitch, 60286, and Curt hitch # C11073, the hitch receiver will be located directly below the rear fascia on the vehicle. You can see pictures of the Curt hitch installed on the vehicle in the instructions I have linked for you. For the Hidden Hitch, I have linked a video showing a typical installation so you can see the position of the hitch once installed. I do recommend going with the Draw-Tite hitch # 24869 (the sister company to Hidden...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2011 Mazda 2 for a Bike Carrier
  • Trailer trailer hitch # 24869 does have the stop in the shank to prevent the installation of Class II accessories. The stop is a safety feature that prevents someone from accidently overloading the hitch. Also, on a Class I hitch, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum. This is because of the additional distance a 3rd and subsequent bikes are from the receiver. It puts too much leverage on the hitch and can damage it and the vehicle. To use your Class II bike carrier you can use Curt...

  • Is Modification of the Body Bumper or Fascia Required to Install the # 24869 Hitch on 2011 Mazda 2
  • The installation instructions for the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, # 24869, indicate that no modification of the vehicle rear bumper or rear fascia is required for installation of the hitch. There is a possibility that the carbon canister hose may contact the hitch bracket. If this occurs you will need to use pliers to bend the bracket and rotate the hose out of the way. Some items you may be interested in, to complete your trailer hitch setup on the 2011 Mazda 2, are listed below. Trailer...

  • How To Lower Exhaust When Installing Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch # 24869 on 2011 Mazda 2
  • To lower the exhaust on a vehicle when installing a hitch is not difficult if done correctly. The main thing is to lube the rubber hangars with WD-40 and that will allow the exhaust to be removed easily from the rubber hangars. I am including a couple of links to videos that will show you how we lower the exhaust in our installation facility. I am also including a link to the installation instructions on the Draw-Tite trailer hitch for your vehicle.

  • Could Draw Tite Hitch for 2012 Mazda 2 Tow a Motorcycle Trailer with Kawasaki Ninja 250R
  • The Draw Tite trailer hitch part # 24869 has a towing capacity of 2,000 lbs total trailer weight and 200 lbs tongue weight. If you were planning on towing your Ninja on a small trailer that weighed less than those capacities this would work well for you. You will need to check the owners manual of your 2012 Mazda 2 though for towing capacities on the vehicle and be sure not to exceed the lower of the two figures. For a ball mount you would want part # 3593, for a ball part # 19256, and...
