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

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Kia Soul - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2016 Kia Soul we're going to take a look at, then show you how to install the Draw-Tite custom fit class 1 trailer hitch receiver. Its part number is 24915. Here's a look at what the hitch looks like installed. Our main cross tube is going to be hidden well up behind our rear fascia, so we're not adding a lot to the rear of the vehicle. Just going to have our receiver tube opening that's going to come out here. Now this being a class 1, it's going to offer an inch and quarter by an inch and a quarter opening.

You see here, we've got our safety chain connection points. This is going to be a rolled steel stock style connection. It should be open enough for you to connect whatever chain you might want to here. A half inch diameter pin hole is going to be right back here. We're going to want to make sure that whatever pin, clips, anti-rail devices that we use are going to come out past these connectors here. This top plate, which is going to give us some additional support, might also interfere with anything if it's really close to the side of the hitch, so just keep that in mind.

When it comes to towing, the hitch is going to offer a 200 pound tongue weight rating. That's the maximum downward force we can put here at the receiver tube opening. It gives us a 2000 pound gross trailer weight rating, so the total weight of our trailer and anything that we might load up on it. Of course, we need to check the owner's manual on the Soul as well, see what its tow ratings are, and we'll go off of whichever of those are the lowest. A couple of measurements that are going to be helpful when it comes to selecting bike racks or even hitch cargo carriers will be from the ground to the inside top edge of our receiver opening, we're going to have about 12 inches. Then from the center of our hitch pin bolt to the outer most edge of our bumper, it's going to be about 6-1/4.

The first thing we'll need to do for our installation is to lower our exhaust down and give us a little room to work. We just have to remove 1 hanger. It's going to be located right here on the side of the exhaust, a little bit of spray lubricant on it, and then a pry bar, and we should be able to pop that right off just like that. Then that'll just come down and rest out of our way. We've got a couple of push pin fasteners that we're going to need to remove on each side. One is right here underneath the bottom.

We'll just pull the middle part of it out and then that outer section will come. Then if we go right up our fender, right up here on the inside, we're going to have our second one. This is going to be located just above our brake line here. Just like the other one, we want the center to come out, then the outside will come. Then, we'll have 2 Phillip screws that we want to remove in the fender line in here. You can see there's one there and one right there just below it. A little stubby screwdriver can fit in there. I'm just using a right angle driver ratchet here. All right, now with those out of the way, we should be able to just gently push our fender liner up and back. That's going to give us access to our mounting locations. We'll have one located right here. This is closer to the front of the vehicle, and then just a little bit further back. The idea of removing this fender liner is so we have some room to work. Directly underneath that forward attachment point in the side of the frame, we're going to have our third attachment point here. This is on the bottom. Now we need to go over to the driver's side, and we'll do the exact same thing to remove that fender liner. Now we're going to grab a little bit of spray lubricant and a tube brush, and we want to clean all 6 of our attachment points out. If you don't have a tube brush, this is part number 814092. We just want to make sure that we don't have any dirt or any build up in these threads that might make it hard for us to get our hitch in position. We'll just guide it up. We need to go up over the exhaust there. We want to make sure it clears our fascia, and then we'll just lift it up, so it aligns with our weld nuts that we cleaned out. We're going to be securing it with the provided hardware and with the conical toothed washers. You just want to keep in mind the teeth of that washer, those need to face in towards our hitch. Once that's threaded in on each side, we should be able to just let our hitch rest there while we get the rest of them started. Now we'll want to be sure that we have our hitch pulled back as far as possible, and then we'll start snugging down those fasteners. We'll need a 17 millimeter socket or a wrench to get on them here. We'll grab our torque wrench, and if we look in our instructions, there's going to be the specification there. We'll want to be sure that we have all 4 of our bolts set properly. With those torque down, we'll put our exhaust back up into position. We'll need to get our fender liners put in. We'll be ready to hit road. You'll remember we took 2 push pin fasteners, and we took 2 screws out of each side, so let's just be sure we get that amount replaced. With our fender liners back in place, that's going to complete our installation of the draw-type class 1 trailer hitch receiver, part number 24915 on our 2016 Kia Soul.

First I would to say thanks again too Carol C for reaching out concerning questions I had about the hitch I ordered. < customer service is excellent > I have a 2017 Kia Soul that I bought last month, the idea of reclining the back seats and removing my front wheel doesn’t work for me. I ride mountain bike here in Puerto Rico 4 to 5 times a week. The etrailer hitch’s bolt up super easy, had one on my 07 Subaru STI and BMW X3. I’m giving 5 stars because the installation instructions, design and finish is top notch. I have a Thule T2 Classic bike rack - 1.25 for two bikes. There was some concern that the hitch end was not long enough, bike rack has a 1.5 inches of clearance between rear bumper and bike rack, no problems. I recommend etrailer for all your receiver hitch needs. 654793

A well made, solid and sturdy hitch. Packed carefully so it arrived without any scuffs. Welds are works of art, finish is smooth and shiny. This should work well pulling my light-duty utility trailer. The hamsters are excited to be put to work!! 194015


Comments

So glad I got the hitch and the plugplay wiring assembly. Made it MUCH easier. The hitch fit perfectly and the wiring was a snap...except I think I mentioned that the leads on the harness going to the car could have been longer, had to splice extra wire in and mount to a different area. But, after many miles of towing, all seems well. Thanks for the follow-up!

Customer service promised top shelf quality and a complete bolt in, and that's exactly what we received. The plug and play harness was of OEM quality. I highly recommend this company. No tweaking, cutting or cussing. Practically fell into place. 137908

Works beautifully for my utility trailer, zero problems, have helped 3 sets of friends move, done two seasons of firewood, plus a variety of small projects, hitch assembly holds up great zero complaints. Installation & Assembly This is the second one of these I've bought and installed. Really simple and easy to install, product doesn't include tools or much in directions. Honestly on the directions front, not a big deal, since bolts directly to the rear frame mounts and mentions needing to drop the exhaust which is only thing that could potentially be damaged. Tools you really need in addition to either an impact/ lug wrench, two jacks since not this companies fault but the 17 soul, has dimunitive hard points so getting a jack stand in without frame damage is almost impossible. A small flat head screw driver, Phillips head, and a 21mm and 17mm socket plus air ratchet or socket wrench. Only thing on actual installation that I can say is having a second set of hands to hold one side makes a tremendous difference in ease off installation. 523307

I ordered a hitch receiver for my 2016 Kia Soul. I wanted a carrier so I could take trash to the dump . I also ordered an adapter to go from one and a quarter inch to 2 inch for the receiver with a 5-inch rise . It was at my house much faster than I expected. Quality of the product was good and it was installed very quickly by my neighborhood mechanic because he has a lift .on in 15 minutes. I would not hesitate to use etrailer.com. 550283


Comments

I just wanted to provide the heads-up that using an adapter such as the one shown in the provided photos will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by half. This would mean that the 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the hitch would be lowered to 100 lbs, which means that the weight of the carrier and the load placed upon it should exceed 100 lbs.

Great product. Well known name, price was less than anywhere else I looked, shipping was awesome. Took 20 minutes to install. On the Soul if you choose not to remove the emissions box on the drivers side, you just hook that side up first and then its easy. The instructional video provided by ETrailer was amazing. Helped me understand what I was getting into. No drilling, all hardware was included, its a perfect addition to the Soul. 243000

Installed very easy on the 2014 Kia Soul with two people. We did use wheel ramps on the rear of the car to gain some clearance. On a previous installation we didn't have the ramps and it still went ok. Folding the wheel well flaps out of the way is only a little confusing. Pull towards the rear of the car on the hitch before you torque it down to seat it properly. Works great! 217130

Ordered this receiver hitch, paid for 2nd day shipping, and had it THE NEXT DAY! This Brilliant service from etrailer - excellent followup on shipping and feedback from George J, and the user reviews and commentary answered all of my questions in advance before I purchased. The installation videos were a big help as well. It was really nice to buy something online and feel confident your selections would actually fit the car you bought them fore. Bonus icing on the cake: It all really fit and works well! All told it took me about 2 hours to get all of my tools together, watch the videos, take parts of the car apart and then complete the install and button everything back up. I installed this on a 2017 Kia Soul Plus with optional mudflaps (designer package). Basically needed to remove one additional fastener on each mudflap to get the fenderwells loosened. Also one minor thing the video didn't mention - and it may be the option package on my car, but there are 2 additional fasteners in each wheel well that need to be popped out to loosen the fenderwells. An excellent purchase that was put to work hauling our bikes today. So far, all is good and I love it! 419860

This was my first hitch install. I've put this off for 2 years and wish I had more confidence back then but a move and finances made me take the plunge to put this one myself. I consider myself handy & did it all by my wittle self, didn't have anything to raise the 2014 kia soul+ 2.0 liter, but from all the videos, forums and comments I read, it was fine to do flat on the ground. One main note - I DID NOT have to remove all the screws by the tire panels. For one, I couldn't get the ratchet screwdriver I bought specific for this task to loosen the screws. I only took off the bottom screws on both sides, holding the panel in, then flipped the panels back to expose the 2 holes to screw in the hitch. I was concerned the hitch would be too heavy for me to do alone, but when it arrived I knew I could do it myself and use a box or something to hold up one side of the hitch while screwing in the other side, if needed. I have issues with my wrists and joints so to say I could install this myself is a big deal for me. The only tool I needed to buy was a torque wrench and got that for a great deal at a local hardware store for $20. I forgot to time myself, but it probably took me longer to try to figure out the dumb screws on the tire panel then the actual install - that probably took about a half hour. I'll be putting my bike rack on "empty" and drive around to see how that works - will install a gopro-like camera and have rear cam to see how the hitch behaves. I put off getting the light kit, which according to the video instructions look easier for me to install than the hitch - love etrailer's instructional videos, which are specific to my year/model car, you guys rock! If I find that I will be pulling a small trailer, I'll come back and purchase the light kit that installs to the rear lights, not the battery as that looks easiests. Great communications with etrailers and quick delivery. Thanks! 385943

I have a small utility trailer that I use for many projects around the house and lost my pick up (with hitch) when my grandson turned 16 (birthday present). I have been looking for a new trailer hitch for my Kia Soul for several weeks. I could not find the correct hitch in stock any where in town. Finally I went to etrailer.com found the correct hitch. It was ordered and received really fast. I am sure impressed with the service of etrailer.com. I was thoroughly kept informed of the status of my order and even checked to make sure it was delivered when stated. The instructions said it would take about 50 minutes for installation and it actually took about 30. Thanks etrailer for your fast, friendly and helpful service. 167483

Does this hitch fit close up to the underside? Im looking for something that will fit close to maximize ground clearance.

The installation was not difficult at all and the video instruction made it so easy to follow. I am not a mechanic but I am reasonably skilled at assembly. The holes lined up perfectly with the frame and it fits my 2019 Kia Soul very well. I mainly intend to use this Trailer Hitch Receiver for a bike rack to carry my bike to the bike trail. I like the fact that the bike is away from the vehicle. I have scratched other cars using bike racks that attach to the trunk or back window. I love how this Trailer Hitch Receiver tucks under the bumper and when not in use only a small portion shows. I will purchase a cover for the 1-1/4" opening to keep it clean when not in use. 657252

I purchased the Draw Tite Sportframe hitch and Curt T-connector wiring harness for my 2019 Kia Soul. The hitch is perfect. Fits very well and was easy to install. The hitch arrived with several holes in the shipping box where the pointy parts of the hitch had worn a couple holes in the box. The hitch had a few scratches but was not damaged. I used some black Rustoleum to touch up the scratched parts I am in the process of installing the Curt wiring harness. The green wire that is routed across to the passenger side light is not long enough so I am in the process of getting everything I need to extend the wire. The wire is 18 gauge wire. 645029

This hitch is the best. I purchased for a bike rack because I just purchased a new KIA Souul, and I didn’t want to use the straps and scratch my paint. The installation was a snap it took about 25 minutes including installing the bike rack, every thing fitted perfectly. If you’re looking for a hitch for a Kia Soul I recommend this site. 610807

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2019 Kia Soul to Carry Bike Rack or Cargo Carrier
  • The best option for a trailer hitch on your 2019 Kia Soul is the Draw-Tite # 24915 because it has the most bumper clearance among hitches that fit this car, giving you a wider range of options to use accessories like a bike rack or cargo carrier. I have added some photos for you to check out showing how this hitch will look when installed on a Soul as well as a link to an installation video. Like each of the trailer hitches that fit your '19 Soul, the Draw-Tite # 24915 is a Class I hitch...

  • Parts Needed to Tow Smaller Trailer with 2016 Kia Soul
  • We do have all of the components you'd need to tow a small trailer with your 2016 Kia Soul. For a hitch you'd need to start with the part # 24915 which is a confirmed fit, for a ball mount part # 3593, 2 inch ball # 19258, and finally trailer wiring part # 118637. This hitch would have no problem with a small trailer and small ATV, but you really need to check your Soul's owners manual to determine what the manufacturer recommends as a towing capacity.

  • Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier for a 2017 Kia Soul to Carry a Wheelchair
  • There are trailer hitch mounted cargo carriers that will fit the Class I, 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches, such as # 24915, for your 2017 Kia Soul. There are no higher Class hitches for the vehicle though. I recommend 20x48 Curt Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Steel - 300 lbs Item # C18110 because it has a rise in the shank for better ground clearance. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.

  • Comparing Swagman G10 and Chinook Bike Racks for 2016 Kia Soul
  • The main difference between the Swagman G10 # S64682 and the Chinook # S64683 bike racks are the design of the crossbars that the wheel cradles are attached to at the base of the bike rack. The Swagman G10 uses two crossbars in which the wheel cradles are attached directly on top of the bars.The Chinook model use one crossbar that the wheel cradles attach to and sit off the side of the bar.

  • Can a 2016 Kia Soul Tow a Trailer
  • The tongue weight (TW) of a travel trailer is typically 10-15% of the gross trailer weight (GTW). However, tow dolly's typically do not reach this mark due to the placement of the vehicle on the dolly. Therefore, I estimate the TW of your motorcycle tow dolly to be around 50-100 lbs. You can use a tongue weight scale like part # 5780 if you need an exact weight. However, according to the owner's manual for you 2016 Kia Soul it is not recommended tow tow a trailer with this vehicle therefore...

  • Is Removing Swagman XC Bike Rack from 2018 Kia Soul Hitch Difficult
  • Installing a Swagman XC bike rack part # S64650 from the hitch of a 2018 Kia Soul like yours is pretty easy. Basically you have to just remove the threaded hitch pin bolt (requires a wrench) and once it's out you simply just slide the rack out from the hitch. I attached a link to a review video that covers this as well. If you are also needing a hitch I'd recommend the Draw Tite part # 24915 as it's very easy to install, priced great, and is mostly hidden so it looks great too. I attached...

  • Visibility of Trailer Hitch Installed on 2014 Kia Soul
  • We do indeed have a photo provided from Curt showing their # C11419 installed on a second-generation Kia Soul. As you can see, the only portion of the hitch that's visible from eye level at the rear of the vehicle is the receiver opening, almost all of the crossbar is concealed by the bumper. Draw-Tite has # 24915 which would also be largely concealed behind the bumper. Both hitches have the same weight rating, and would install in the same manner. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2018 Kia Soul for Use with Draw Tite Class I Hitch
  • For Class I hitches like the Draw Tite part # 24915 which is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Kia Soul you have to go with the recommended ball mount by the manufactuer otherwise the warranty of the hitch is voided. So for your vehicle you have to use the ball mount # 3593 which has a 2-1/8 inch rise. For a 2 inch ball part # 19258 or for a 1-7/8 inch ball # 19256. If you need wiring then you'd want the part # 118637 which I attached an install video for.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2016 Kia Soul
  • I checked and none of the available trailer hitches that are confirmed to fit the 2011 Kia Sportage will also be compatible with your new 2016 Kia Soul. In order to use your hitch-mounted carrier on your new vehicle, you will need to install a new trailer hitch. For your Kia Soul, as long as it is not the EV model, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch # 24915. This hitch is custom-designed for this vehicle and no drilling will be required for installation. This...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Kia Soul
  • The hitch I recommend for your 2018 Kia Soul is the Draw Tite hitch part # 24915 because it is a confirmed fit, has enough capacity for a small trailer, and the best price. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you'd then want the # 118637 for if your vehicle has LED taillights, or part # 118637 if it does not. Both of these kits come with the most reliable converter box we offer so I recommend them highly. For a ball mount you'd then want the...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Kia Soul Being Flat Towed
  • For smaller vehicles like your 2018 Kia Soul there are only 1-1/4 inch hitches like the Draw Tite hitch part # 24915 which you can then install a bike rack in the hitch that fits that size. Then for an RV approved bike rack to fit this hitch we have the Let's Go Aero BikeWing # B01311 which would work well in that hitch and is super lightweight.
