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 - 2015 Chevrolet Cruze - Draw-Tite

Today on this 2015 Chevrolet Cruze, we're going to review and install the Draw Tite Sport Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24882. All right, this is what the hitch looks like when it's installed on our Chevy Cruze. You'll notice that you'll only see the receiver opening and the safety chain loops and that's it. The rest of the hitch is hidden behind the bumper. Now, this uses a half inch diameter hitch pin hold or your favorite locking hitch pin. On the bottom here, we have a traditional safety chain loop, which will work great with a wide variety of safety chains. This case, pretty much, if you're going to use on a small trailer, you'll probably have a hook just like this.

Hitch capacity wise, it's going to be rated for 200 pounds of tongue weight, which is the weight that pushes down on the hitch from your hitch ball or your accessories. Also, the hitch does have a pull weight of 2,000 pounds for your trailer. Now, you always want to double check with your owner's manual to make sure how much weight your vehicle can carry and pull. This is our inch and a quarter opening, right here, be great for very light towing loads or accessories. Now, a lot of times, you won't use your hitch for trailering purposes or you may never tow a trailer but it's great for an accessory, such as this bicycle rack right here. Next, we'll go ahead and give you some measurements that help you out in some of the selections and accessories, such as that bike rack you just saw or maybe even a cargo carrier. So, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of our bumper here, it's going to be about 3-3/4 inches.

From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground, looking like about 10-1/4 inches. Now the tools we use for our install's pretty simple; ratchet, a 13mm socket, 11/16 socketboth deep wellFairway long extension and also a torque wrench with a matching 11/16 socket. Now, let's go ahead and cover how we installed our hitch. Now, we got a lot of room to work with underneath our vehicle here and this is also an RS model and that won't interfere with anything as well. Plenty of room, this is actually a really good install to do on your garage floor. First step of our install, is go ahead and lower our exhaust to get a little better working room.

To do that, we're going to remove this bolt right here using a 13mm socket. Push up a little bit and pull back. This gives us about a inch or two of working room. Our next step is to install hardware into the frame of the vehicle. We need to install this block and this bolt.

The hitch does come with the bolt leader or fish wire tool to help do that. This is going to be pretty easy and simple. Now our hitch is going to attach by using this hole here and this hole here. So, to install our hardware, we'll take our bolt leader, push it through the hole we're going to use and out this larger hole here, which will be our access hole. Make sure you don't pull out the rest of your bolt leader from the original hole. Take your block, push it into the frame, and then take your bolt and thread it on, push it into the frame. Do it one more time using this hole right here. Okay. Now, in this case, we'll go ahead and leave our bolt leaders in place so that when we put the hitch up, if we knock the bolts back in, no big deal, we can pull them back through. Now, we're going to repeat that same process over on our drivers side here, using these two same holes. All right. Now we can go ahead and put our hitch in position. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands and help put it up there. Now, we're going to take our bolt leaders, put it through the matching holes, and slowly push your hitch up into place, push it over your exhaust and up. Now if you can, push the hitch one way or the other to kind of trap the bolt. Remove your bolt leader and install your conical tooth washer with the teeth facing towards the hitch and then install the nut. We'll do one on each side to help stabilize the hitch. All right. Now, we'll go ahead and remove our other bolt leader and install the rest of our hardware. It'll be the same for all four bolts. Now, we'll go ahead and center up our hitch, which basically is pull it straight back and let the holes kind of guide it. You got a little bit of play, put it the way you want it and then we'll go ahead and tighten down our hardware, using 11/16 socket. Now we'll go ahead and torque the bolts down using a torque wrench inaudible 00:04:55 instructions. We'll do this to all of our bolts. All right. Let's go ahead and put our exhaust bracket back up into place and reinstall the original hardware. All right, and that'll finish it for our Draw Tite Sport Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24882, on this 2015 Chevrolet Cruze.

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.

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


Comments

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

I backed my 2015 Chevy Cruze Diesel up, and parked the rear wheels on ramps. This allowed plenty of room to angle the drivers side of the mount up over the tailpipe. Then I just rested it on the tailpipe. Next I used a floor jack to support and raise the middle, and got both sides lined up. Gingerly threaded on the nuts with washers so as not to loose them up inside the boxed frame. Then centered it and torqued all four nuts down. It only took me about 45 minutes and I'm an old man, I probably would have mounted it in half that time when I was a young buck. The hitch is barely noticeable and works great pulling light to medium loads with the little Cruze. The finish is very durable, but I made sure to give it a heavy coat of paste wax to help it fend off the road chemicals. 236943

Great price, outstanding service and hitch was delivered in 3 days- oh and the hitch was easy to install on my wifes Chevy Cruze. Took about 30 minutes for someone who isn't the most mechanically inclined individual. You will need 2 people to install it (one to hold it in place, the other to attach the screws; I used my 8 year old kid to hold it in place). The only possible negative is that the instructions were lacking. The instructions could use some better photos and focus on one model of vehicle vs having 2 types of vehicles listed which madethe instructions somewhat confusing (Chevy Cruz and Buick ?). Definately impressed with etrailer.com. You got a life long customer from this first time buyer. 51074

by: Diesel Cruze04/11/2015


Great product. Arrived in four days. Went on in 30 minutes. Only one thing was a little more tricky than the excellent video instructions: Installing on the diesel model AND not removing the exhaust was a little tricky since I did not have the benefit of a lift. I solved this with a hydraulic jack (since this model comes with no spare or jack) to lift the driver's rear corner about 3-4 inches. This gave enough clearance to manipulate. I probably could have avoided that by just parking the car with the rear hanging over a curb. 184711

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

It went on my Diesel Chevy Cruze hassle free! It is well built and the shipping was fast! I am towing a small motorcycle trailer and it has handled to great! I would recommend this product to anyone in the market. 136456

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.

have you noticed any issues towing the small motorcycle trailer with it? and do you happen to know the weight?

This is by far the easiest hitch I've ever installed. It is helpful to have a pair of long nose pliers too. I attached the metal piece and bolt to the wires, then threaded them through and grabbed the wire with the pliers. The wiring is a little more difficult, but still easy. Watch the video, it is very helpful. I did have a problem with the video though, it locked up about half way through for some reason. All in all it's a nice hitch and easy installation. Thanks 52459

This hitch fit perfectly on my 2011 Cruze LT2. It looks great and is working great. The shipping was great. It was free and only took 3 days. It took 2 hours to install cause the factory exhaust was replaced with a traditional one. I would recommend this hitch over the Curt one because I worked for Curt and it was a slave shop. So if you're trying to decide what one you want choose this one. 409418

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

The reciever for the 2013 Chevy Cruze was fairly easy to install. Directions were straight forward, and I think could be done with only one person if the option for help is not available. My father-in-law and I installed it in about 30 minutes, and we took our time. I have had no issues with the reciever since installation about a year ago. 319963

Everything was simple to install on my Cruze. The bolts were alittle hard to get in at first because they didn't fit in the holes in the frame so we had to feed them down through the frame which took a bit but once we got that in, everything was very easy from there on out! It looks great on my car and I can't wait to test it out! 46123

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

Just received the hitch via UPS yesterday evening. I have yet to intsrall so this review is premature because etrailer is already bugging for a review. The hitch looks solid and has good solid welds, the box came ripped with parts of the hitch sticking out but it's a hitch so who cares if it's "scratched" right? 390760

It took me about fourty minutes and the biggest problem was getting my torque wrench betweem the exahust pipe and the nut to get the torque set correctly. I did the install in my garage without a jack and it worked out very well. The hardware that came with the hitch worked very well and fit as it should. 115161

I bought this to install on a Chevy Cruze. The installation took me about fifteen minutes total. The video on the site gave me insight on what to expect. The hitch was pre drilled and came with all the needed hardware and instructions. This is the second DTite hitch I own and I recommend the brand. 329847

I had local garage install the hitch on my 2013 Chevy Cruze LTZ because I don't have level grade to work under the car. Mechanic said it went on smoothly and quickly. Not at all obtrusive when looking at the car from the rear. I purchased in combination with Thule 2-bike rack (#TH912XTR). 304592

Very easy installation. I did it by myself, although I was a little worried when mounting the hitch b/c of pushing the bolts into the frame, if you take your time you won't have a problem. Anyone can install this. The crossbar of the hitch stay hidden behind the rear bumper. Nice design. 42221

I was very impressed how easy it was to install. I did it on the ground underneath a diesel chevy cruze. it took approximately 28 minutes I did almost all the work by myself, my girlfriend assisted me with installing the first nut, due to her not being able to crawl under the car beside me. 132327

Hitch installed easily. might be better to have somebody to help you but you can do it alone. instructions say to torque bolts to 50ft.-lbs but the ones over the exhaust are tough to torque unless you have a really small torque wrench. overall happy with hitch and quick service 243620

by: Elizabeth05/29/2015


The rack was very easy to install. We saw the video through trailer and it gave us a better idea of what do to during the installation. Chevy makes it easy to install the hitch. The hitch is very study and looks well hidden. 198607

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
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...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Chevy Cruze LTZ with RS Package
  • 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...

  • Warranty Implications of Installing Receiver Hitch on 2011 Chevy Cruze
  • Installing a hitch on your 2011 Cruze will not have any warranty implications if the hitch is installed as outlined in the instructions and used within the weight bearing capabilities of the vehicle. Consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. The Act states that if something breaks on your vehicle and you take it in for warranty repair, the dealer must honor your warranty unless whatever modifications you have added to your vehicle actually...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • Will Draw-Tite Class I Hitch # 24882 Fit 2011 Chevy Cruze Without Drilling or Modifications
  • The Hidden Hitch Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 60299 (no longer available), will fit your 2011 Chevrolet Cruze. The installation of the hitch will not require any drilling or modification of the vehicles undercarriage. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Hidden Hitch. Since you will be using the hitch for only a hitch bike rack and not for towing, I would recommend to look at the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24882. This is the same hitch as...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommendation for Carrying Three 60 lb. Downhill Bikes with a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze
  • I checked with our hitch suppliers and each one says that their hitch will fit all models of the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze including the RS model. All of the hitches for the Cruze are Class I hitches and are limited to carrying two bikes only. The reason for this limitation is that the extra torque created by hanging a third bike that far away from the back of the vehicle can cause damage to the bike rack and bikes, hitch or vehicle frame. We do have a solution though. I would recommend...

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes on a 2014 Chevy Cruze
  • The difference in the shipping weight for the Draw-Tite part # 24882 and the Curt Hitch part # C11282 that is also a confirmed fit for your 2014 Chevy Cruze is due to the different side bracket plate designs. The Curt hitch has much larger brackets attached to the cross tubes with more material and that is why it weighs about 10 lbs more. Both of the hitches available for your vehicle are Class I hitches. These hitches are limited to only carrying 2 bikes due to the limited weight capacity...

  • Bike Rack Clearance Provided by Curt Class I Receiver # C11282 Installed on 2013 Chevy Cruze
  • When we installed the Curt # C11282 and the Draw-Tite # 24882 Class I hitches on a 2013 Chevy Cruze, we found that the Curt hitch had a 6-1/4 inch measurement from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. 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...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2014 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ With 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,...

The larger 2 inch hitch size is only used on larger vehicles with higher capacities like trucks and SUVs. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • 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...

The installation for all three of these hitches is going to be similar and it has been verified to fit all models of the Cruze. I have attached a link to an installation of this hitch on a 2012 Cruze you can check out. With a Class l hitch you are limited to carrying 2 bikes.

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Cruze that Provides Smallest Distance from Hitch To Bumper
  • For a hitch that would have the hitch opening as far back towards the rear of your 2014 Chevy Cruze as possible you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24882 as it is confirmed to fit your vehicle and only had a distance of 3-3/4 inches from the hitch pin hole to the rear of the bumper. See install video that I attached. The most popular bike rack we offer that we had a chance to demo on a Cruze just like yours is the Swagman XTC-2 Bike rack part # S64670. See attached video.

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.

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 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.

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.

  • Curt or Draw Tite Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Chevy Cruze
  • The mounting brackets of the Curt Hitch part # C11282 are much bigger than the Draw Tite hitch part # 24882. That is the weight difference. If it were me I would go with the Draw Tite. 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. For trailer wiring you would want the part # C56214, for a ball mount part # 3593, and then for hitch balls...

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...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes on a 2012 Chevy Cruze

Since all of the hitches for the 2012 Chevy Cruze are Class I hitches, you will want to look at some other racks that are Class I compatible. However, on a Class I trailer hitch, both bike rack manufacturers and hitch manufacturers agree that the most bikes you can carry safely on a Class I trailer hitch is 2. To carry 2 additional bikes you would need to add a roof rack to the vehicle. With the...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.
