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 - 2017 Chevrolet Volt

Today on our 2017 Chevy Volt, we're going to be taking a look at installing the Draw-Tite Custom Fit Class 1 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24947. Here's what our hitch looks like fully installed. The receiver tube is going to fit right below the bumper and that's really all you're going to see, giving it a nice clean look. Now, this is a Class 1 hitch, so it's going to have 1 1/4" by 1 1/4" receiver tube opening and this does use a standard 1/2" pin and clip which is not included, but you can pick one up on our website using part number PC2. Now, our safety chain loops, we're going to have a rolled steel stock welded underneath our receiver here, but as you can see, we've got plenty of room to get most size safety chains on or off without interfering with anything. As far as weight capacity concern, our hitch here features a 200 pound tongue weight which is going to be the force pushing down. It also features a 2,000 pound gross trailer weight which is the amount that it can pull. Now, I do want to mention, you always want to double check with your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure that your vehicle can handle that amount of weight. I'm going to give you two measurements to help you in deciding for new accessories for your new hitch, such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin holes to the outermost edge of the bumper is 5 1/4".

From the ground to the inside edge of the receiver tube opening is 9 3/4". Now that we've gone over some of these features, let's go ahead and show you how we get it installed. To begin our installation, we're going to need to remove the panel underneath the underside of our trunk here. We're going to have several different fasteners that we're going to need to take out and we're going to be starting with the 7mm bolts here. We're going to be using a 7mm socket to take these out. Now, if we come back farther underneath, we'll find that we'll have several more 7mm bolts that will need to be removed. If we come farther back under our panel again, you'll notice these plastic nuts.

We're going to be using a 10mm socket to remove these. I do want to mention, to give you an idea of where we are under our vehicle here, this panel that we're taking off is a rather large panel. It's going to go all the way from the trunk to just in front of our rear tires and we're going to have to take off all the fasteners which should be seven plastic 10mm clips and eight 7mm bolts. Finally, to remove our panel, we're going to need to take these screws out right here. I'm going to be using a T-15 torque spit to take those out. We're going to have one more fastener right here in the middle before we can fully pull our panel down. It's a plastic push pin, and I'm just going to be taking a flathead screwdriver.

You find the indentation right here and you get underneath it, you pry the center section out which will release it and then you can pull the whole clip out. If you're having a little bit of trouble with the clip coming out, once you have it released a little bit, you grab it with a pair of pliers and pull the clip out the rest of the way. Now, with all of our fasteners removed, I'm going to carefully pull down our panel. I'm going to start here in the back. Start by separating the two panels where they overlap, then slowly working my way around, pulling the panel off the studs. We're going to put this aside for re-installation later. If we go behind our wheels here, on each side we're going to have four torque screws that we're going to need to remove.

We're going to be using a T-15 torque spit to remove those. Now that we have the four removed on our one wheel well, we're going to repeat the same process on the other side. Behind our wheel well we just removed are four torque screws. If we pull it back and we look right at the seam where our fascia meets our fender, we're going to have a bolt that's holding it in place right here. That's going to be needing removed. We're going to be using a 7mm socket to remove that. Once we have this one removed, we're going to do the same thing on the other side. With all the panels and fasteners underneath our vehicle removed, we're going to have to remove our taillights so we'll come to our back hatch, open it up and we're going to need to remove the three fasteners on each side of our taillight here. Now, the two here, I'm going to be using a T-15 torque spit to remove those. For this fastener down here, I'm going to be using a Phillips head screwdriver. We can start pulling our taillight out and you're going to want to pull straight back and kind of go with a gentle wiggling motion, and it'll pop the clips loose. Just want to be careful not to break any of your clips. Once we have our taillight removed, we're going to come to this connector right here. We're going to push that red tab backwards, we're going to push down on that button here, and unplug our taillight, and we're going to set this aside for re-installation later. Since we have this one out, we're going to do the same process on the other side. Underneath our bumper, right behind each one of our tires, we're going to have a few more fasteners that we're going to have to remove before we can pull our fascia off. Here on the driver's side, there's going to be two screws and then we're going to be using a T-15 torque spit to remove them. We're going to do the same thing on the passenger's side, except on the passenger's side we're going to have three fasteners we're going to have to remove. Here we have our panel that we removed in the beginning and I marked out the measurements that they gave me in the instructions and I'm going to be cutting this out. You can either use a pair of tin snips, a rotary tool, or pretty much anything that cuts this material. It's not very thick. Now we'll be able to re-install the panel once the hitch is in place and we won't have to worry about this section interfering with anything. We're going to do one more thing before we remove our fascia. We're going to have to lower our exhaust down, so before we remove our fascia and lower our exhaust, I'm going to put a strap going around our exhaust so it'll allow it to come down but it won't go down too far and cause any damage. Now with an extra set of hands, we're going to get ready to remove our fascia. I do want to mention, our vehicle is equipped with back-up sensors and some lights, so you want to be extra careful and mind where you're pulling, because of any connectors. We're going to start back here towards the rear of our tire and we're just going to pull away from the vehicle and work our way around. If you look right here, we're going to have our connector. Just push in on this tab here. Connector should come apart. We're going to set our fascia aside so it doesn't get damaged. With our fascia removed, we're going to need to remove our bumper beam. We're going to have three nuts; two on top here and one underneath on each side. I'm going to be using a 15mm socket to remove these. We're also going to remove the three on the other side. On the passenger's side here, right above our exhaust, our exhaust hanger is going to be right underneath our bumper beam. We're going to need to remove these two bolts here. We're going to be using a 13mm socket. With those bolts removed, we're going to take our hanger and we're going to slide it out of the way. It may take a little bit of force to slide the muffler back far enough to get enough room to pull our hanger out. With our hanger out of the way, we go and pull our bumper beam off. Now with everything removed, we can put our hitch into place. I do want to remind you to be careful, but it should hold itself up because of the existing studs on our vehicle here. With the hitch loosely in place, I'm going to put my bumper beam back into place and on each side, I'm going to install one nut, hand tight, just so it doesn't fall down. With our bumper beam loosely in place, we're going to come back to our exhaust hanger, slip it back on our muffler. We're going to actually lift up our muffler and we're going to slide our clamp and our bracket into place. It may take a little maneuvering and if you can't quite get the holes to line up, you can take a screwdriver or something small and that way you can get it in there to get your holes lined up. Everything loosely in place, begin to replace our hardware. Everything's hand tight, so I'm going to come back and, using a 13mm socket, I'm going to tighten up my exhaust hanger. For my nuts holding my bumper beam on, I'm going to be using a 15mm socket to snug these up. With everything nice and snug, I'm going to come back and torque down my exhaust hanger bolts the specified amount in the instructions. Now we can come back and torque our bumper beam bolts to the specified amount in the instructions. Now, with an extra set of hands, we can put our fascia back on, but before we put it into place, I'm going to go ahead and reconnect our electrical connections right here. Now that our fascia's back on, I'm going to go ahead and re-install our taillights. I'm going to plug in our connector; I'm going to make sure that I push that red locking tab forward. Then I can line up all of our fasteners and clips and we can re-install all of our hardware. We're going to repeat that same process on the other side. I'm going to go ahead and put the bolt back in on each side right where our fascia meets our fender, and again I'm going to be using a 7mm socket. We're going to do the same thing on the other side as well. With everything buttoned up up top, I'm going to come back underneath. I'm going to remove my strap from my exhaust. Now all we have left is to button everything up, putting our panel in and replacing all of our hardware we took out. That'll finish up the look at the Draw-Tite Custom Fit Class 1 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24947, on our 2017 Chevy Volt.

Great product. Solid welds with a durable finish. This hitch design includes extra metal for the exhaust hanger that other designs do not have. It includes easy to follow instructions and a video which make for an easy install. It took me (with no power tools) an hour and a half with the cars back wheels on ramps. It is possible to remove the tail lights, and bumper without disconnecting the connectors. I would recommend laying some towels down to protect the finish on the bumper if this approach is taken. 668296

This hitch fit like a glove. I have been using it constantly on my Chevy Volt for a bike rack. The only draw back is not the hitches fault is that the backup sensor constantly goes off because the rack is there not the hitch. It was a little bit of a pain to install because it had to be under the bumper. I highly recommend this hitch. Rich 425700

I've been using this trailer hitch frame on my 2017 Chevy Volt for a year and it has served me very well. It bolts on very securely between the car's frame and the rear bumper bar so I'm confident in its hold. I've hauled an 8'x6' utility trailer fully loaded (probably > 1500 lbs total) multiple times with no issues. There is no flexing of the hitch at all. It's great that there is a customized option available for the newer Volt that is designed to fit it so well, allowing many Volt owners to get a lot more out of their vehicle. 674183

I received the shipment promptly with no damage. While the install of the hitch is not for the faint of heart there's nothing that the average tinkerer with proper tools can't handle. As others have said the video created by etrailer.com was absolutely indispensable. I really didn't look at the paper instructions except for the cutout dimensions. I just set up my tablet nearby and followed the video and was finished in about two hours. The only minor issue with the install is that the extra thickness of the hitch with the bumper installed over it made it so the exhaust hanger didn't sit in the tabs without some minor modification but this was easily dealt with. I haven't gotten the bike rack I installed this for so I can't make additional comments on usage at this point. 578219

Really happy with this hitch. The install was pretty straight forward on my 2016 Chevy Volt (gen 2) thanks to some great instructions included. There really were no surprises at all. I would suggest you wait to cut the underbody until the hitch is in place to avoid excessive cutting, but it's not a huge deal. I maybe have 5-10% more cut away than I needed to have. This made for a neat father-son project with my 8 year old, who was pretty amazed at what the car looked like with the rear fascia removed, and how easy it was for us to do something that sounded impossible to him. Total time was probably 1.5 hours, with the biggest time suck being getting the screws out of the wheel wells. Jacking the car up would help, as would a right-angle watching screwdriver. I did neither, so it was a bit more tedious, but very doable. I also had a lot of trouble getting the wiring harness for the rear lights to separate, but I just released them from their mounting, which created a lot of slack, so I could just put the lights in the trunk. That worked well. I've been using the hitch with a Thule 4 bike rack (the Apex), and it's been great. No sway or excessive wobble, which is better than the factory hitch in my 2015 Ford Escape. It is visible, but doesn't protrude behind the car (just underneath), and has had no issues at all. Very happy, and really appreciate e-Trailers pricing and customer support. 438451

Haven't used it yet but it feels solid. I was afraid it was going to be close to the ground but it sits higher than I expected so is OK; not the lowest part of the car but not far off so need to be careful backing up and going over bumps etc (though that's very true of the Volt in general). Some tips for installation: * Try to have a 7mm rachet socket as the wheel well screw is real pain otherwise. * The 5th wheel torx that's furthest in could probably stay there; I took it out but honestly I think you'd be fine not doing so. And it's a pain to get to unless you take the wheels off. * For the life of me I could not work out how to detach the tail light electrical cable. Some instructions for noobs would be good here! I just left the lights sitting semi-precariously on the lip. * I had a devil of a time working out how to get the fascia off around the wheel wells, not having done it before. Pull the fascia out and away so you can see the next tab, then poke in and press the tab to release. If you don't have a tool, put electrical tape across where the tab is then push a screw driver through to get to the tab; that protects the fascia just fine. * Once the sides are loose, pull the bottom out a bit then pull the top straight out. Mine was a tad "sticky" but then came out in a rush - pop! pop! pop! * The hitch fit perfectly - perfectly flat, no warping, installing it between the beam and the body was a breeze. * The exhaust hanger hanger sits in some brackets. When I reinstalled it the space was tight and I had to gently hammer it in and down. * Reinstalling the fascia was muuuuuch easier :-) Top edge first then everything pops into place. * After reinstalling the fascia check at the bottom that the underbody panels are where the should be - inside the fascia! Or you can do as I did and force them in when you get to them, just pull the fascia out and push the panel around/under. Took me 3 hours much of which was agonizing over the fascia and the tail lights; almost gave up on the fascia and was going to take it to the dealer, but it is actually straightforward. 291006

Easy install and looks very solid. The only issue was removing all the tiny screws holding the fascia and wheel well molding, and then pulling the bumper fascia off. If you've never done it before, there's always some trepidation. If you've done it before, it probably seems easy. Would have been nice to have a pic of the 5 screws in the wheel well, to know their location. My install was in the winter with frozen mud caking the inside of my wheel wells, so I had to scrape around to find which screws needed to be taken out. A diagram would have made it easy. Otherwise, the install was easy. 351561

The Draw Tite hitch is well made and the instructions were clear and understandable. But, and there is always a but, this is not an installation for the faint of heart. A good level of mechanical aptitude is required. Simple things like disconnecting the tail light harness is a bit more than sliding the red clip lock forward. The release clip is not obvious and this step is where your skill sets will be put to the test. The tail lamp harness on the 2019 Volt is attached to the bumper cover and the harness unclips on the left side but the right side section does not have release clip. It requires removal of the christmas tree clips. (single use type clips) or you can set the cover to one side and not try to remove thr right side tail ;lamp harness. Take care when removing the 7mm fastners as there is one fasterner that is slightly different than the rest. It is slightly longer and is designed for one location in order to provide the additional reach needed to make contact with the reatainer clip. Other than that this hitch installation is a piece of cake! P.S. be careful with the bumper cover side mounting clips as they can be easily be damaged. If any of this makes you uncomfortable have a mechanical shop or dealer do the installation for you. 655788

Now that I have had the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class 1 - 1-1/4" on my Chevrolet Volt for over a year, my rating remains 5 stars. Whenever I look at the picture of the rear end of my car lying on the garage floor I smile. I would have never attempted the install without the detailed installation available on etrailer.com. With the video on my tablet (pausing as needed) the install was a piece of cake and everything is working wonderfully more than one year later. This saved me so much money! The folks at etrailer.com rock! 653366

Love this hitch. Bought an Allen 1.25" 3-bike carrier for it, and works great. Hitch was a relatively easy install (except all the plastic clips on the bumper cover). Be super careful with it. I broke two clips. Thankfully screws still hold it in place correctly. Modern body panels are just a pain. =/ Highly recommended for Volt owners. It does decrease clearance a tiny amount, but not noticeably. The bike rack does more of that than the hitch ever will. Thanks etrailer! 609164

Overall this product is excellently engineered for this car. The attachment itself is remarkably simple and the product itself is the perfect dimensions. the important bits (the ones that DrawTite designed) is literally bolt-on and takes 5 minutes - that is, once the car's fascia is removed. However, getting to that point is not for the faint of heart. Get ready undo a lot of screws to get the rear fascia off - many of which use a tiny Torx size that is not really well suited to the size of the screw. I managed not to strip any, but there were a couple in the wheel wells that i had to use vice grips on to get them to turn. Once you have all the screws out, it's time to eat some dirt (if you haven't already). The Volt's bottom cover grabs and retains sand, gravel, and pebbles, so there was about a 1/4" - 1/2" layer that needed to be dumped out. I think my car weighs about 1-2 lbs less now. The pattern etrailer gives you to cut the bottom cover and make room for the hitch is conservative. I would cut it an extra 3/4" wider on the driver side of the cutout. (I had to redo this in order to get the cover to line up when reinstalling). It was fairly easy to remove the fascia with one person. I recommend that you disconnect the wiring harness from below beforehand, so you don't have to worry about it. It's not too hard to get to, once the bottom cover is off. Next undo the sides of the fascia. The bolts behind the wheel wells come out easier than you'd expect. For the very first clip on each side, which is stubborn, a small flat screwdriver makes it release with almost zero effort. Finally just grab the whole fascia it in the middle so you can balance it, and pull it straight back and off. Take off the bumper and exhaust (really easy), put the hitch on, put bumper and exhaust back, and bolt up. This is very easy, relatively speaking. Put the rear fascia back on and then remember to reconnect the wiring harness before you put the bottom cover back on. This is probably the most frustrating part - getting the bottom cover back on. Aligning the little studs with the holes in the cover is tricky, there is a lot of surface to manage, and you are eating dirt the whole time. Best advice IMO is to start at the center of the car and work toward the rear bumper. Use the white nuts to hold it up as they are easiest to put on with one hand. Once you have them all in you can tuck the bumper side in where it needs to go, and put the rest of the screws and bolts in. Best of luck, the fit and finish look really good and unobtrusive. 560192

Arrived quickly and exactly as advertised. Very well built. Watched the amazingly detailed install video a couple times and then installed myself and was it was super easy. Took maybe just over an hour. A few tips for anybody installing themselves, don't bother jacking the car up, not necessary. Don't bother removing bottom panel, just cut the panel in place after you put the hitch on (saved me a ton of time skipping this step). And don't bother removing the 5th bolt in the wheel well (the hardest one to reach), I just loosened it a bit so that I could fold back the wheel well cover and reach that bumper bolt that needed to be removed. Really the most time consuming part of the install was removing and then re-installing all the screws/ fasteners. Best part was I had a reason to go buy a torque wrench which I found on sale locally for $22.99, smoking deal! The hitch looks great now that it's installed , looking forward to using it with my new bike rack. 557067

Great, the video and instructions made it easy to install. I broke one of the lock tab on one of the tail lights when unlocking it. So just a note that they are touch fragile so don't pull too hard. After unlocking the tail light clip, you still need to press down to get the connect to disengage. Just a heads up for the next guy. I also was able to perform the install without jacking up the car or removing the bottom panel contrary to what the video shows. Another note that the 5th Torx-15 bolt in the wheel well is hard to get out if you don't have a rachet set that can hold the Torx-15 head. This could be why I was able to do the install without jacking the car up. All said and down, it was a great product, got here (Canada) verify quickly and was an easy install. 510885

Chose this one because it had a 200 lb tongue weight. Since the bike rack weighs 100 lbs. and my mountain bikes weigh 35 to 40 lbs each, I needed one that would handle at least 180 lbs. Had the chevy dealer install it. Works great. 438778

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes with a 2017 Chevrolet Volt
  • It sounds like you're trying to carry four bikes on a 2017 Chevrolet Volt. I have a solution for you, but the Volt is limited to only 2 bikes on a hitch mount carrier and we do not have any fits for roof racks to carry bikes. The only option we have to carry all 4 bikes is to install a hitch receiver on the Volt and tow the Yakima Rack and Roll # Y08106 behind it carrying the bikes. The Rack and Roll is basically Yakima roof rack on wheels so it can be used to carry a variety of things...

  • Bike Rack Compatibility with 2017 Chevy Volt
  • If you don't already have a trailer hitch for your 2017 Chevy Volt, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class I # 24947 which is a custom fit. This hitch will have a measurement of 5-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper. That same measurement is 5-1/4 inches when using the Curt # C11436 which is also a fit for your vehicle. That hitch however requires stabilization strap # 18050 for a bike rack. The Thule DoubleTrack...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For 2 E-bikes Compatible With 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • For your two e-bikes, I recommend the Thule EasyFold XT Bike Platform Rack # TH903202. This bike rack is made for carrying 2 electric bikes up to 65 lbs each. This rack has all the security features to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your hitch. This rack weighs just 40 lbs. This bike rack is compatible with the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24947 which is confirmed to fit your 2017 Chevy Volt. I've attached the installation...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2017 Chevy Volt to Carry the Swagman Titan 2 Bike Rack
  • The trailer hitch receiver that you will want to install on your 2017 Chevrolet Volt is the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24947. This is a Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver that has a tongue weight rating of 200 lbs. You will want to check the weight rating of your Volt to see how much weight it can carry as that will most likely be the deciding factor. Since this hitch receiver requires that the bumper be removed for installation I recommend looking into having a shop...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2017 Chevy Volt
  • For your 2017 Chevy Volt we have the Draw Tite hitch part # 24947 as a confirmed fit that has a towing capacity of 2,000 lbs. As long as your vehicle owners manual states your vehicle is also rated for the weight of your trailer and motorcycle this would be a great solution. For trailer wiring you'd then want the Tekonsha kit part # 118726 because it does not require any splicing and it also comes with our most reliable converter box. For a ball mount you'd want the part # 3593 and...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitch on 2017 Chevy Volt
  • I went to the warehouse to take a measurement, and the stop tab depth on the Draw-Tite # 24947 is four inches from the front of the receiver, so there should not be an issue with insertion depth on your 1UP USA bike rack. The reason for that tab is because like the Curt # C11436, the Draw-Tite is a Class I hitch, and the tab is designed to prevent an accessory from being used unless it is Class I rated. In terms of measurements the hitches do offer slightly different ground clearances;...

  • Will the Rola TX-102 Bike Rack fit on a 2018 Chevy Volt?
  • Because this rack fits either 1-1/4" or 2" hitch receiver, assuming that you already have a hitch on your 2018 Chevy Volt, it will fit either receiver size. If you don't already have a hitch for your Chevy Volt, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame # 24947 . This hitch has a 1-1/4" receiver and is a fully welded, corrosion resistant hitch that is perfect for light duty towing applications and hitch mounted accessories.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2017 Chevy Volt Premier with Back Up Sensors
  • When we had the chance to install the Draw Tite hitch part # 24947 on a 2017 Chevy Volt it was a vehicle that had backup sensors and we were able to complete the install and they worked fine. We had one customer come back and say the only issue with the back up sensors they had was when they were carrying a bike rack since it would get picked up. This would be the hitch we would recommend! I attached the install video for you to check out as well.

  • Load Assist Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Chevy Volt
  • The Yakima LongArm # Y01149 is designed to fit a 2 inch trailer hitch but the trailer hitches available for your 2017 Chevy Volt are all Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitches. But I do have another possible option for you. If your Volt already has a roof rack then you could potentially use the Malone DownLoader kayak carrier # MPG114MD with the Telos Load Assist # MPG351XL which will help you to load the kayak easier. I would just need more information about your roof rack if equipped such as...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Chevy Volt
  • Most of the time platform bike racks can be a bit heavy but we do have one great solution. The Saris Freedom Superclamp EX part # SA4025F only weighs 30 lbs, can carry up to 60 lbs per bike, can fit the 1-1/4 inch hitch you would have on your 2017 Chevy Volt, and is also made in America. The best hitch to use would be the Draw Tite part # 24947.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Bike Rack for 2017 Chevrolet Volt
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24947 is confirmed to fit your 2017 Chevrolet Volt. There isn't a lot of trimming to the fascia. A 5-1/2 inch by 3-3/4 inch retangular hole will need to be cut into the underbody panel. See the picture I attached from the install instructions. I've also attached to link to the instructions for you. For a hitch mounted bike rack you're gonig to want something that is light so it doesn't take up all the weight your Volt will support. One suggestion is the...

  • Recommended way to Carry Bike Rack with 2016 Chevy Volt
  • As of right now we don't have any trunk bike racks fits for the 2016 Chevy Volt. Thule doesn't even have it in their fitguide at all. I am imagining there won't be fits though based on the fit issue you are having. For carrying a bike rack your best option will be a hitch bike rack. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike...

  • Location of Hitch Pin Hole on Draw-Tite Hitch 24947 for Chevy Volt
  • In our install video for Draw-Tite Hitch # 24947 we do note that when installed on the 2017 Volt shown in the video the center of the hitch pin hole was 5-1/4-inches forward of the rear edge of the bumper cover. That video is linked for reference; please refer to the 1:17 mark. The hitch pin hole is used as the referenced point since bike rack makers also use this point to express their racks' clearance requirement dimension. For instance, if your hitch bike rack's hitch pin hole were...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2017 Chevy Volt
  • For your 2017 Chevy Volt I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24947 for 2 reasons. First, it costs less. And second, if you went with the Curt hitch and wanted to use it with a bike rack or cargo carrier you would have to use stabilization strap # 18050 per Curt's warranty requirements. Draw-Tite does not have this requirement.
