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 - 2014 Chevrolet Cruze - Draw-Tite

Today on this 2014 Chevrolet Cruze, we're going to install part number 24882 from Draw-Tite. This is what the hitch looks like once installed on the car. Next we'll give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories such as a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From top to receiver opening, down to the ground, will be about 10 inches. From the hitch-pin hole to edge of bumper will be about 3-3/4 inches. Now we'll show you how the hitch is installed. First thing we need to do is locate the mounting holes. We'll point them out to you.

Use the hole in the frame closest to the bumper. Then there's two holes going towards the front of the car very close together. We'll use the hole that's closest to the front. This will be the same on the passenger side. Now we'll show you how to hardware works with the hitch. There will be a plate or block that will be ran inside the frame along with a carriage bolt.

Bolt it to the frame and then down through the hitch. Once it's through the hitch, we'll install a conical-tooth washer and nut. When you install a conical-tooth washer, you always make sure your teeth are always facing towards the hitch. We're going to install one set of hardware. This will be the same all the way around the hitch. Let's go ahead and install it in the frame.

We'll take our bolt leader, that comes with the kit, and run it through the hole closest to the bumper. Then we'll run a larger hole going toward the front of the car. We'll use that for our access. Then we'll run our bolt leader through our block and push it through the frame, then thread a bolt on. We'll gently pull it through and out the bottom of the frame and up towards the front.

We'll take off our bolt leader and repeat the same process for our next bolt going towards the front of the car. We're done for the passenger side. We'll repeat the same process for our driver's side. Once all our hardware is installed, we can put the hitch up. We'll start off by putting the hitch over the top of the exhaust. That will hold that side for us while we pick up the other side. We'll take our hitch and push it up towards the bolts. Make sure you don't push the bolts into the frame. Then we'll install our conical-tooth washer and nut. We'll install the hardware just far enough to help hold the hitch up. We're done with our passenger side. We'll do the same thing again on our driver's side. Once all our hardware is loosely installed, we'll take a moment to take the hitch and move it back and forth and center it on the frame. We'll hand-tighten the bolts and the torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. With that, our hitch is already installed. With that, that will finish it for Draw-Tite part number 24882 on our 2014 Chevrolet Cruze. .

Despite the excellent video I was unable to install the hitch because my car is too low to the ground. I took it to my local service guy who had no difficulty putting it on. The charge was $90. So calculate that into your buying decisions. 683129

This product was very easy to install. It took only 20 minutes. The video was very helpful and reduced the amount of time to install as well as a decisive factor in purchasing this product. I will be towing a very lightweight trailer at times as well as using it as a mount for my bicycle rack. I would do business with etrailer.com again. 257507

Looks good the machan's that work on my car will do the install, everything looks like it is there the only thing that I am a little upset about is the electric wiring for wiring the car came out of its container and was all over the inter box, if I had to pack it I would but tape on the wiring container so it would not open and fall out all over, but thank you for everything and all your help. 481453

Although I have not attached the bike rack yet, the hitch itself was very simply to install; I did it myself in the parking lot of my apartment complex. The videos on etrailer are extremely helpful with the installation process; without them I wouldn't have attempted to install it on my own. The printed directions that came with the hitch were, in my opinion, written for the Buick Verano because I did not have to lower my exhaust or cut the heat shield on my Chevy Cruze, which obviously made installing the hitch much easier and quicker. I would definitely recommend this hitch as well as a review of the installation videos available on etrailer. 186714

If I had known then what I know now, I still would have bought the same hitch. Im very happy with it.Thanks!

This is my 4th trailer hitch I’ve bought from etrailer and as always I am completely satisfied. Whether it’s been for a sedan, suv or truck the fit has always been perfect and the instructions exact and clear. And if you need more they have a lot of resources on the website. The only place to buy a hitch. 516078

Hitch hangs low to the ground line of the car. Depending on grade and what you install, it may rub on the ground. with a 4 bike kuat bike rack, the rack will touch of on the ground. 457537


Comments

Rob,Thank you for your review. We normally do not recommend a 4 bike rack on a class 1 hitch. This hitch can handle up to 200 lb of tongue weight and the force of 4 bikes plus the weight of the rack may exceed that. We do recommend to carry only 2 bikes on the class 1 hitch. The 2 bikes should be closest to the vehicle. This may help with the bike rack rubbing the ground.

Installed the Draw Tite 24882 on a 2011 Chevy Cruz Eco in about 30 minutes. I have had a Thule 2 bike carrier for 10 years. It fits into a small reciever hitch.This is the third car it's been on. Took the bike to the trails already. No problems. I would note that the Cruz Eco sits low. The front end will bottom out on steep ramps or inclines. I have to cross them slow and sometimes at a 45% angle. This hitch doesn't seem like it would bottom out but the bike carrier might since it sticks out a bit. I haven't had that problem but I may throw the carrier in the trunk if I need to go up or down a steep ramp or driveway. 188099


Comments

One year later I am still satisfied with this hitch. I have managed to hit the bottom of the bike rake on the ground when driving down a steep ramp onto a level road. If I make the transition at an angle there is no problem. Without the bike carrier it never bottoms out.

Hitch was as described and easy to install. Crossmember is fully hidden behind rear facia. There was one typo in the installation instructions calling for items #1 and 4 to be installed with the pull wire. It should have said items #1 and 2. Small needlenose pliers were helpful grabbing the pull wire through the mounting hole. 47400

Installed a Draw-Tite class 1 (part 24882) on a 2014 Chevy Cruze. Went as per the instructions but I did have to use a swivel socket and extension on the muffler side because I did not lower the muffler. Used the muffler to hold the hitch during install. Took about 30 minutes to complete. A friend recommended etrailer and the great install video sold me on the fact that I could do this by myself. Gave an excellent because I called to order and the sales person was great. He was so knowledgeable I call back next week to order a bike rack. 198261

Ted, we have a 2014 diesel chevy cruz and the def tank seems to be in the way of mounting the hitch. Did you have that problem? If so, how did you mount it?

Ted indicated that the installation was hassle free. None of the installation instructions from our hitch manufacturers mention needing to move the DEF tank to install the hitch on a 2014 Cruze. We have not had any other customers indicate that they have had any issues with the installation, and at this time we have not had the opportunity to install a trailer hitch on a Diesel Cruze.

My experience at etrailer.com was excellent. My call was answered promptly by a knowledgeable service rep. My questions were quickly answered and they took my order right there on the spot. I chose the 3-5 day shipping option which I thought was very reasonably priced. The hitch arrived as scheduled and installation was a snap. Etrailer.com provided a great experience, I would definitely shop with them again. Thanks Steve B. 569997

So far so good! I've used the hitch with bike rack on 2012 Chevy Cruze and it have no issues. Installation was a little challenge with getting the bolt to drop through the mounting plate with the feeder wire attached so I opened the hole in the mounting plate to allow more clearance for the bolt to slide through with the feeder wire. Once the plate and bolt were in place the rest was a matter of holding the hitch in place which I used a floor jack to lift and hold the hitch while I started the bolts and tightened them. 710970

The hitch was everything they advertised it to be. Everything was included for easy installation. Took me about 30 minutes to install and it fit perfectly. The price and quality make it an excellent buy. 690695



- 24882
by:

As other reviewers said, this hitch attaches with no difficulty. Perfect fit and was mounted in short time (maybe 15 minutes after I cleaned some road dirt out of the frame attachment bolt locations). As you might expect for a car that rides this low, the hitch receiver ends up pretty close to the ground, about 9 inches, (see photo). That makes my utility trailer ride a little low in the front, but quite usable. I tried not to use more hitch offset than was recommended. 683928

Went on pretty easy, about 20 minutes, one person laying on the ground, using the exhaust pipe as a support. Only problem was that the two holes shown in the instructions (video) of a 2014 Cruze was different than the two holes needed for proper spacing on our 2015 model. Luckily I checked the center distance before I ran the bolts through. A great product, very satisfied! 653705

No complaints, the trailer hitch was easy to install. I did it myself in my driveway in about half an hour with no prior knowledge. In hindsight I wish I would have gotten a wiring harness on the same order, I didn't realize until I actually went to hook up a small trailer that it was not standard on my vehicle. Maybe this could be mentioned in the description 646567



- 24882
by:

Completely satisfied! After some shopping, we found that etrailer offered the best price ( even with the added shipping and USD to CAD conversion). The product arrived on our doorstep only a few days after placing our order. The hitch installed easily in about 15 minutes as other reviews had mentioned. 641956

We planned to use the hitch assembly to hold a simple rack for a bicycle, not for towing. Fairly easy to install, but not fast. Not quite as rigid as I had hoped, but good for a single bicycle, which was the intended purpose. 640089

Great product!! Was delivered within days of ordering -- the e-trailer on-line video was extremely helpful for the installation (way better than just the written directions / photos). My 15 year old son and I put it on our 2012 Chevy Cruze LT in a little under an hour from unpacking, to installation, to recycling the box in which it was mailed, to installing our hitch mounted bike rack, to leaving our house and driving to a nearby single-track with the bikes on the hitch-mounted bike rack. 634298

The hitch was much easier to install than I had expected, the kit makes putting the bolts into the cars frame a snap. Only took about 45 minutes to install the hitch. The wiring harness took twice as long but was straight forward and the step by step instructions made for a factory looking install. Etrailer packed everything I needed into one box and delivered right to my door, nice! 595399

I have been using a trailer hitch that I purchased on line from etrailer for over a year now. I had a auto body repairman put it on for me and he said that it went well, but had to run a wire up into the engine compartment for the lights. I have used it quite a bit and it is holding up fine. 2012 Chevrolet Cruze. 594588

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel
  • For a trailer hitch that is confirmed as a fit for your 2014 Chevy Cruze diesel we have the Draw Tite part # 24882. I prefer the Draw Tite hitches over the Curt hitches as they do not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. For wiring I recommend the Tekonsha kit part # 118508 as we have found that the Tekonsha brand harnesses are more reliable than the others. For a ball mount you would want the # 3593 and then for a 2 inch hitch ball part...

Immediately after that it explains that the maximum a trailer should be is 1,000 lbs but possibly less depending on things like if you are going up steep hills.

I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24943 for that vehicle. I've attached a video of this installation.

The Draw-Tite was recessed so that the dimension was 3-3/4 inches. To determine if your rack will be compatible, simply measure from the hitch pin hole to the closest obstruction on the rack, be it the upright, the foot of the rack or in the case of a platform...

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel

It has a better price, the same capacities, doesn't require a stabilizer strap like the Curt does with non-supported loads, but also because the lighter weight will make it easier to install.

  • This question has come up before and a colleague of mine found out from the manufacturer that the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24882 will fit a 2012 Chevy Cruze with the RS package. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you will be doing some towing, the correct ball mount is # 3593 and you can use pin and clip # PC2. For a 1-7/8 inch diameter ball, use # 19256 and for a 2 inch diameter ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring use # 118508. I have included some...

  • Hitch and Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2014 Buick Verano
  • The Thule Passage trunk mount bike rack # TH910XT is indeed a fit for the 2014 Buick Verano. It is possible that any trunk mount bike rack on any vehicle could deform the rear bumper fascia. That is an inherent risk in using a trunk mount bike rack. If that is a concern I recommend installing a trailer hitch and using a hitch mount bike rack. For a hitch I recommend # 24882. This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. Using a hitch will keep the bikes off of the vehicle and it...

  • Can a Dirt Bike be Carried on Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Chevy Cruze
  • All of the trailer hitches available for your 2014 Chevy Cruze, including # 24882, are Class I hitches which have a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds maximum. This is the first hurdle because the combined weight of the dirt bike and the carrier would have to be under 200 pounds. The second hurdle is that carriers designed to carry motorcycles will not fit in Class I hitches. So the cargo carriers that do fit Class I hitches may not be long enough for the bike. I recommend # C18110...

  • Fit of Draw-Tite Class I Receiver on 2013 Buick Verano
  • According to the folks at Hidden Hitch, when installed on a 2013 Buick Verano, the crossbar of the # 24882 will be almost totally concealed behind the bumper fascia. You can see how the hitch sits in relation to the bumper by taking a look at the cross-section drawing from the installation instructions. The instructions state that the heat shield needs to be lowered or a small hole (approximately 1 inch in diameter) cut into it to allow access to the access hole in the frame member....

  • Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring for a 2011 Chevy Cruze to Tow a Jet Ski
  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24882, will bolt to the bottom of your 2011 Chevy Cruze using factory holes in the frame rails. While there is no drilling needed, you might need to enlarge an existing access hole in order to fish the hardware through to bolt on the hitch. I have included a link to the installation instructions for the hitch for you to view. The hitch does not com with a ball mount. You will need # 3593. You will also need a ball and trailer wiring to complete the towing...

  • Can a 2013 Buick Verano Carry a Hoveround Scooter on a Trailer Hitch
  • If by pulling it you mean towing the Hoveround on a trailer then your 2013 Buick Verano could handle that. But if you mean having the Hoveround on a hitch-mounted carrier and off the ground then it depends. Both of the trailer hitches that fit your Verano ( # 24882 and # C11282) are Class I hitches with a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. Tongue weight capacity is the amount of weight that can be suspended from the receiver. So the combined weight of your Hoveround and the carrier...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Cruze to Carry Bike Rack
  • Your Chevy Cruze would need a trailer hitch installed in order to carry the Thule DoubleTrack # TH9054 bike rack. The hitch is sold separately. Of the hitches available for your Cruze, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24882. The Draw-Tite model isn't the least expensive, but it would be better suited to carrying the bike rack you're interested in. The Curt # C11282 warranty stipulates that a stabilizing strap, part # 18050 be used for non-trailer loads like bike racks....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2013 Chevy Cruze
  • The price difference and the name of the hitches are due to different manufacturers. Since both the Curt option, part # C11282, and the Draw-Tite option, part # 24882, are 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers with a 200 lbs Tongue Weight capacity and 2,000 lbs Gross Towing Weight Capacity they are pretty much the same hitch. I do recommend going with the Draw-Tite Sport Frame # 24882 though (the "Sport" is just part of the name of the hitch) because the Curt warranty requires that a Support...

  • Compatibility of Curt Class I Receiver # C11282 on 2012 Chevy Cruze with RS Package
  • According to Curt Manufacturing, the # C11282 is compatible with all models of the Chevy Cruze, including those equipped with the RS package. If you will be using the hitch for a bike rack or a cargo carrier, keep in mind that the warranty requirements of the hitch require that a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 is required. The Draw-Tite hitch, part # 24882 has no such requirement, which is why I would recommend it over the Curt model. I have linked you to installation instructions...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2014 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ With RS Package
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 24882, is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ with the RS package. This is a Class l hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. I have attached a drawing that shows the hitch receiver along with the fascia. Because of the lower back bumper on the LTZ, you will need a drawbar with a rise to accommodate an accessory like a bike rack or a cargo carrier. If you plan on towing a small trailer with your Cruze,...

  • How to Tow an Electric Scooter with a 2012 Buick Verano
  • I do have an option for you but according to the owner's manual for your 2012 Buick Verano, the maximum tongue weight capacity for the vehicle without any passengers or cargo is 150 lbs. Therefore, the Go-Go Elite Traveller would be too heavy to carry on the rear of the vehicle. In order to carry the scooter around I recommend using a small trailer like the Detail K2 Mighty Multi Utility Trailer part # K2MMT4X6. In order to use this trailer you are going to need a trailer hitch, wiring...

  • Difference Between Hidden Hitch and Draw Tite Hitch for a 2014 Chevy Cruze
  • There really aren't any differences between the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24882 and the Hidden Hitch part # 60299 (no longer available). They are both made by the same company and are virtually identical minus a few decals. The Hidden Hitch does come with a ball mount and a pin and clip so that may affect your decision. For a hitch ball you would want the part # 19258 for a 2 inch ball or part # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. For trailer wiring you would then want the part # 118508.

The Reese 77269, The Draw-Tite # 24882 and the Hidden Hitch # 60299 (no longer available) Class I Hitches are all manufactured in the same factory, and all three are identical. The only difference between the three is the brand name and part number on the sticker affixed to the hitch. In other words, there's no difference in quality or weight rating...

  • Curt or Draw Tite Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Buick Verano
  • Function wise the Draw Tite part # 24882 is the winner for your 2013 Buick Verano. The reason I say that is that the Curt you mentioned requires the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack and the Draw Tite does not. So it is the winner in my opinion.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Chevy Cruze
  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24882, does not require a stabilization strap when carrying non-trailer loads such as a bike rack. But it is a good idea on a class I trailer hitch just because it relieves some of the stress on the hitch. If you decide to use a strap, you can use # 18050. Since this is a class I trailer hitch, you will need to make sure your bike rack is compatible. Some racks cannot be used on a class I trailer hitch. If you find you do need a rack that is compatible...

With this hitch you can install a Class I rated hitch mounted bike rack, but you will also need to use a stabilizer strap like part # 18050.

  • Will the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack Fit a 2012 Chevy Cruze
  • Yes, as long as you have a hitch installed on your 2012 Chevy Cruze the Kuat Sherpa 2.0, part # SH12G, will fit and work well for you. If you need a hitch the # 24882 would be a great option that has been confirmed as a fit. It would also have enough clearance to fold up when not in use.

  • Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier for a 2014 Chevy Cruze
  • The Carpod cargo carrier # M2205 only fits in 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. All of the hitches for your 2014 Chevy Cruze are Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers so it would not fit. I have included a link to the hitch mount cargo carriers that are compatible with a Class I trailer hitch. I recommend # C18110. You could then add a cargo bag # 59102 and secure it to the carrier. With this set up I do not anticipate any problems opening the trunk on your Cruze. For a trailer...

  • Can Curt Cargo Carrier # C18110 be Carried on 2013 Chevy Cruze
  • If you had a 1-1/4 inch hitch installed on your 2013 Chevy Cruze like the Draw Tite part # 24882 the Curt Cargo carrier part # C18110 would fit and work well. I'd recommend this hitch over the Curt as it does not require the stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a cargo carrier.
