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 - 2018 Toyota Corolla - Draw-Tite

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Toyota Corolla, you're going to be taking a look at . I'm going to show you how to install the Draw-Tite Class I Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24913. This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. As you can see, the cross tube is visible. However, it has a round tube design, so it fits nicely with the contour of the vehicle. Receiver tube is gonna sit nice and flush with the bumper fascia or the edge of the bumper fascia so you're not gonna have to worry about hitting you legs on it too much when you're loading and unloading the vehicle.This hitch is gonna be an 1-1/4" by 1-1/4".

Hitch pin hole is gonna be 1/2" in diameter. The safety chain loops has a ring style, so it's gonna fit different size safety chain hooks fairly nicely. You can see it's nice and open. You're gonna have a 200 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. You're gonna have a 2,000 pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included.

However, I do recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You're gonna want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.As far as the installation goes, this is a very simple installation. I do recommend getting an extra pair of hands to help lift the hitch into place while you get a couple bolts in place to hold it up. Let me give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mounted accessories you may need such as a bike rack, or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper will be about 2-1/2".

From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube will be about 11".It's a good idea to get a raised shank for better ground clearance. Now let's show you how to get this installed. First thing you need to do to start your installation is you need to get the back of your car up in the air a little bit. It's not necessary to get it up in the air, it's just gonna make it a lot easier. So if you have ramps, it's better to back it up on some ramps.

Make sure you chock your front wheels in the front and the back of the tire so your vehicle doesn't roll. We have it up on lifts to make it a little bit easier for you to see at home, so you can see exactly what we're doing.A couple of things the instructions say is one, this appearance panel needs to come down. It's not necessary. This does not need to come down for this hitch. It's not gonna get in the way of it. The second thing is if you have a tow hook that's attached on the frame rail, that will have to come off and will not be going back on. You're gonna get four hex bolts in your kit, and you're gonna get four conical tooth washers. Conical tooth washer is gonna have teeth on it. You want to make sure that those teeth are facing away from the head of the bolt and they're gonna go up towards the hitch.Even though this is a 2018, I do suggest taking some lubricant and spraying out your holes and taking a tube brush and cleaning out the threads. We're gonna do that with the other two on the other side. Nice with an extra set of hands. We'll set our hitch into place. We're gonna use the back two holes in our frame. Again, you want to make sure the conical tooth washer is facing up towards the hitch. We'll get one in each side to hold our hitch in place while we install the rest of the hardware.Next we'll take a 3/4" socket and tighten all of our hardware and repeat that same process for the other side. Next we'll take our torque wrench and we're gonna torque all the hardware to the specifications in the instructions. You're gonna repeat that process for all hardware.That'll do it for a look at an installation on the Draw-Tite Class I Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24913 on our 2018 Toyota Corolla.

Easy 5 minute install by myself. Looks great. Fits perfectly. When locked down with bikes on my rack there is zero wobble or movement at the connection or any other point with this set up. Rock solid with my Saris bike rack. 390754

This hitch got delivered quickly, along with the wiring harness and ball mount I ordered. It's readily apparent that these are now designed and built with the aid of computers: The hitch fit absolutely perfectly, and hugged the contour (fit) of the car very closely. I ordered the wrong ball mount-please don't laugh!!!! (Jena helped me out and the right one got delivered today.) 147390

The Trailer hitch arrived within two days. Light weight. Easy to follow instructions. Easy to install. Looks great. No fuss, no mess. I am 84 years old and will use this trailer hitch with my new bicycle rack. No more heavy lifting for me. Fantastic. I would highly recommend this product and etrailer to anyone that needs a Class I trailer hitch. 513819

Fantastic product. Fit my 2011 Toyota Corolla perfectly. Amazing customer service. Maybe one of the best customer service companies I've interacted with. Online instructions on how to install and thorough comparisons between the different hitches. Even a recommendation for which cargo loader would be appropriate! I installed this hitch on my own in about 20 minutes. Took another 30 minutes to assemble and install my cargo carrier. All finished under an hour with just a socket wrench. I'll be using this to haul my things on a cross country trip. Also, planning on using it to move my bike around since it won't cause as much wind resistance as the roof car racks and those were super expensive and easily stolen. 394893

Two minor issues: 1) A Toyota problem: needed to buy a tap to fix one of the 4 threaded mounting holes. 2) The hitch had a punched detent in the rectangular tube part which put limits on how far the bicycle rack would insert. Had to drill and file out. Didn't have one on my previous Drawtite. Otherwise the product is built to last. 430994


Comments

On a class 1 hitch like the # 24913
Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4"
$113.19
there is a welded tab on the inside of the receiver to ensure that the user is only using Class 1 accessories in the hitch as a safety precaution. The # 24913
Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4"
$113.19
can only handle 200 lbs TW and is therefore limited to carrying 2 bikes on a bike rack. Filing or removing this tab will void your warranty and could cause damage to your accessory. I recommend a class 1 compatible bike rack such as Thule part # TH912XTR
Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting
$206.84
. The Thule roadway part # TH912XTR features levers that let you fold down the arms for storage and tilt the rack away from your vehicle for cargo area access. The rack also includes an anti-rattle hitch pin.

Glad to have a top quality Draw-Tite hitch from etrailer on my '17 Toyota Corolla SE (with a six-speed MANUAL transmission. Ohh yeah!) Some notes about the installation. The plastic cover plate below the trunk well would not come off. Those darned 12mm nuts could not be removed. No matter. The hitch can be installed with that cover plate in place. From heaving the hitch up off my chest to the frame and getting the first bolt threaded to torquing down the last blue threadlock-covered bolt in place, doing the job by myself, about a half hour. One thing that concerns me about the hitch is that it covers the pin hole that Toyota put on that car. There is an upside down cup with a pin sticking up adapter that fits on the head of my floor jack. This adapter is used to jack up the rear of this car. With the hitch covering that hole, the hitch itself is the rear jack point. I hope this is not a problem. Sometimes I have to question why automobile engineers design things the way they do. All in all, a great hitch value from etrailer. 528628

The etrailer website is amazing its product reviews and instructional videos are unparalleled.

The website is extremely easy to navigate I recommend it to everyone you will not be disappointed!!! 518953

Excellent fit....my only issue was years of dirt and rust in bolt holes on unibody...i had to wire wheel holes with a dremmel and put one of the bolts in & out of the holes with some spray....only suggestion is maybe send an extra bolt along as a “cleaning bolt” in case u have to do this and ur not left with 3 good bolts and one with the threads a little marred up.....but as i said again, excellent fit 653094

Great hitch. Easy installation except for having to tap my weld nut threads first. My one complaint: etrailer, please inform people that they may need their threads tapped before install, even after cleaning with a wire brush. My car only has 45,000 miles but still had corrosion in the weld nut threads that required tapping. Otherwise, excellent customer service and I will most definitely purchase from again and recommend to people (already have). Thanks! 643063

The hitch was easy to install and works very well. The only small issue is that it will bottom out on rather low clearance so some scraping does occur. This is more of a nuisance and scratches the paint off the bottom. It is used to carry a bicycle rack and works fine. 615522

I have not used the hitch to transport my bikes yet, however I can comment on the install. It could not have been easier. It was one tool and 10 minutes from start to finish. It took me longer to break down the box it shipped in. Etrailer's customer service is second to none. Every time I order something from them I am always impressed with their product knowledge and responsiveness. Great job. 591874

This is the third Draw-Tite hitch that I have installed on my Corollas. This install was on a 2019 and it was accomplished easily while just laying on the ground behind the vehicle. The 2019 hitch height was an inch lower than the height on my 2004 at about 11 inches to the top of the 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 opening and with a cargo carrier installed the carrier pitched upward towards the rear which allows more clearance while driving over dips in the road. Everything worked out fine on this excellent easy install! 577164

Got the package in 2 business days and the hitch was secured in place inside the box and the hardware and an additional item were shrink wrapped around the hitch. PERFECT PACKAGING. FIt perfect, had all the bolts and washers needed. Thank you all for a great experience. Can't wait for my next shipment to arrive. 573292

Excellent, sturdy product at a good price with super fast shipping. Watch the video where the installer sprays the holes with penetrating oil or lubricant. The threads on my car were rough and rusted and this helped a lot. I did the side by the muffler with a tire qrench to muscle it in. 570907

I can't say enough about the excellent service and the well made hitch itself. Had no problem mounting the hitch, everything lined up and was a easy install. The only thing that I did different was apply anti-seize to each bolt before putting them in. Thank you again. 567360

Very easy install. Suggest tapping the threads before installing 556449


Comments

Any vehicle operated in an environment that uses chemicals on the road in the winter can have corrosion in the nuts welded into the vehicle frame. If its not very severe, a round profile wire brush and some spray lubricant can be used to clean the threads. If that doesnt do the trick, we offer a thread tap, part # PTW8662
12 mm x 1.25 Tap and Drill Bit
$9.95
that can be used to clean up the threads.

The Draw-Tite hitch arrived quickly and in a very secure shipping package. The hitch fit fine and the installation went well. I had two issues that others might encounter - I had to grind a little metal off the Toyota's frame because the hole in the frame didn't line up with the attachment nut welded on to the frame. Not a problem, just added a little time. The other issue was that several of the attachment nuts required cleaning due to the spray coating used on the underside of the car. Again, not a big issue, just added a little time. All in all, I'm very satisfied with the hitch. etrailer.com provided fast shipping (ordered on Saturday, arrived on Thursday). 394854

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2017 Toyota Corolla
  • Yes, Curt trailer hitch # C11265 will fit the 2017 Toyota Corolla. But if you plan on using the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier and not towing I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24913. The reason is that for the Curt hitch Curt requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050 when using their hitch with any non-trailer load for their warranty requirements. Draw-Tite does not have that requirement.

  • I looked up the owner's manual to your 2019 Toyota Corolla and it states that the vehicle is not designed to tow and that Toyota doesn't recommend towing with it. With such a new vehicle I recommend checking your own manual or with Toyota to see if they can provide a tow rating. If you find you can tow with the Corolla we do have hitches available.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2016 Toyota Corolla
  • For your 2016 Toyota Corolla I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24913. It does not require a strap to use a bike rack. Once installed the hitch will be approximately 9-1/2 inches up from the ground. But, since the hitch is positioned at the end of the vehicle, you would have to be at a very severe angle for the hitch to make contact with the ground.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2006 Toyota Corolla Sport
  • For your 2006 Toyota Corolla Sport, I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11265.

As you can see in the attached photo, this hitch will fit the sport model perfectly and will not require any trimming of the rear bumper fascia or ground effects. I have attached an installation video on a similar 2007 Toyota Corolla for you. If you can tell me what...

  • Bike Rack Option for 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback Without a Hitch
  • I do have a bike rack option for the 2019 Toyota Corolla but there are not any custom fit hitch designs for the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback yet. The hitches that fit the 2019 Corolla Sedan like part # 24913 are not a confirmed fit. I cannot recommend a hitch mount bike rack at this time but we do have trunk mount options that are designed for the Toyota Corolla hatchback and others like it. I recommend the trunk mount bike rack Hollywood Over-The-Top 3 bike rack part # HRF2-3 to carry...

  • Receiver Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Toyota Corolla LE
  • You are correct, the Curt and Draw-Tite receiver hitches all look very similar and also offer the same weight capacities. The biggest difference between the two brands of receiver hitches for your 2008 Toyota Corolla is the fact that the Curt, # C11265, requires the use of stabilizing straps, # 18050, for all non-trailer loads like bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. The Draw-Tite brand does not require...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Corolla
  • For your 2019 Toyota Corolla the Draw Tite hitch part # 24913 is the hitch I recommend as it does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack like the Curt requires. For a bike rack I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F. This is a platform bike rack that only touches the bike at the tires and only weighs 30 lbs. The biggest drawback to platform bike racks has always been the weight of them, but with this rack you get the best...

  • Difference Between Class I and Class II Trailer Hitches in Relation to Bike Rack Compatibility
  • The trailer hitches we currently have available that are confirmed to fit your 2003 Toyota Corolla are all Class I hitches. The different class ratings for trailer hitches primarily refer to the maximum weight the hitch can safely handle. The size of the receiver opening will also differ between class ratings. For example, Class I and Class II hitches have a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening while higher class hitches will typically have a 2 inch receiver opening. If you do not yet have a...

  • Troubleshooting Included Bolts Too Big to Install Trailer Hitch on Vehicle
  • The issue you described in your question is actually not too uncommon, especially on vehicles that have seen a few winters. I did verify that the M12 x 1.25 bolts are the correct size for installing the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11265 on your 2015 Toyota Corolla. Since the underside of your vehicle is constantly exposed to dirt, grime, moisture, salt, etc - this gunk can find its way into the open weld nuts or bolt holes on the vehicle where the included hardware for a trailer hitch is attached....

  • Why Does Curt Hitch For Toyota Corolla Require Stabilizer Strap but not Draw Tite
  • Curt requires the strap to provide extra support for when the vehicle goes over rough pavement or experiences a sudden shock like hitting a pothole. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch feel that this isn't necessary with their hitches. Because the strap is an extra expense, and because some vehicles just aren't well suited to using the strap, I'll usually recommend going with the Draw-Tite hitches. So for your 2016 Toyota Corolla I would recommend the # 24913.

  • Bike Rack Weight Limit For Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • For your 2011 Toyota Corolla, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24913. This hitch is rated for 200 lbs tongue weight. When using a bike rack, the Class I hitches are recommended to only carry 2 bikes because of the torque the extra weight has on the hitch due to the extension of the weight not simply the weight itself. You will need to use your best judgment, but adding a 3rd bike could void any warranty on the bike rack and...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation and Comparison of Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2-Bike Trunk Racks
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack. The difference between the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and the FullBack # Y02634 is that the FullBack comes with integrated locks that lock the bikes to rack and rack to vehicle. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches. But honestly it...

  • Can a 1-1/4 - 2 Adapter be Used to Safely Haul a Cargo Carrier with a 2015 Toyota Corolla
  • The concept of a hitch adapter like the Brophy # HTAD is a good idea in theory but the problem with using one of those with a 1-1/4" hitch, like part # C11265 or # 24913 for your 2015 Toyota Corolla, is that it will reduce the weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50%. Since those trailer hitches have a tongue weight rating of 200 lbs this means that the tongue weight will be reduced to 100 lbs. If you were to use all of this for the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 you would only...

  • Does Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24913 Include Ball Mount, Pin and Clip
  • You are correct that the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24913 includes a ball mount, hitch pin and clip. The Curt hitch # C11265 includes the pin and clip, but not the ball mount. Please note that the availability of hitches for any given vehicle does not necessarily mean that vehicle can tow a trailer. I was not able to verify any tow rating for your Corolla. Your owners manual or local Toyota dealership should be able to offer clarification of the vehicles capacities. All...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • For your 2014 Toyota Corolla there are only Class I hitches that have 1-1/4 inch hitch openings available like the Draw Tite part # 24913. 2 inch hitches like the part # C13149 that you referenced are designed for larger vehicles with higher towing capacities like trucks and SUV's. This hitch is for new Rav4s actually. I like the Draw Tite hitch over the Curt for your vehicle as it does not require a stabilizer strap part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. The...
