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.

I initially purchased a 'Brand X" Class 1 hitch that, which it lasted, seemed to do okay. I have to use a powered wheelchair which is carried on a self-contained unit with its own suspension system and wheels - placing NO weight on the hitch receiver or rear of my 2018 Chevrolet Volt. The entire weight of the carrier is less than one-third the rated capacity of the hitch. The complete weld on one side of that hitch receiver broke clean with the other side on its way! After some online shopping, etrailer came to the rescue with a Class 1 hitch more solid and robust than my broken one! The welds are superior as is the construction of the entire unit (I purchased the 200/2000 unit). Installation was straight-forward - there are videos on YouTube going step-by-step (I've attached a picture of the broken Brand X receiver + the new etrailer item). I'm giving the etrailer unit my highest compliment and state, "Buy With Confidence."

Good product and surprisingly easy installation. Took 2 hours start to finish. As a youtuber suggested, there was no need to jack the car up, or to remove the entire underpanel. Just removing the series of screws underneath the bumper and in the wheel wells was sufficient. Very happy with the purchase.

This trailer hitch fits awesome. It is not obtrusive; it looks like it belongs there! The directions are clear and easy to follow. Some tips: You can use all the existing fasteners (they're all long enough). The bottom bumper bolts can separate from the body while loosening them - I held them from behind with needle-nose locking pliers. I also had to expand their nuts with heat and spray them with penetrating oil, since the pliers can't grip the bolts all that well.

A year in and this hitch is still great. Im really happy I got it. It does not flex, doesnt stick out, and it just works. What more could you ask for?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

  • Best Hitch for Carrying Bike Rack on 2019 Chevy Volt
    The best hitch will depend on which bike rack you're using. If you have a rack compatible with a 1-1/4 inch hitch, you'll want to use the Curt # C11436 Class I hitch. If your rack is compatible with a 2 inch receiver, you'll want to use the EcoHitch # 306-X7338. Both hitches install so that the crossbar is hidden behind the bumper for a clean, factory-installed appearance. I've linked to installation videos for both hitches for you to check out.

  • 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.
