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 - 2017 Toyota Corolla iM

Today on our 2017 Toyota Corolla iM, we'll be having a look at and installing the Draw-Tite Sport Frame Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24952. All right, here's what our hitch looks like installed. As you can see, our hitch is nice and hidden by our fascia. The only only part that you'll see hanging down is the actual Class I 1-1/4" receiver itself with our safe chain loops that are welded to the bottom of our receiver. This hitch features at 200 pound max gross tongue weight rating, which is the amount forcing down, and a 2,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating, which is the amount you can pull. You want to consult with the owner's manual of your Toyota Corolla iM before you attempt to tow that much weight.

You don't want to exceed the limits of the hitch or the vehicle itself. Now on the side of our receiver, you'll find a pin hole, 1/2" in diameter. That is to secure any of our hitch-mounted accessories, such as our bike racks, or our cargo carriers. Our safety chain loops have a fairly large opening so we shouldn't have any issues securing our safety chains onto those. Now what I really like about this hitch compared to others on the market, is you'll see how concealed it is but also it's tucked up nice and tight up against our fascia but yet still is recessed back and we have enough clearance around the receiver opening to make it an ideal hitch to use for bike racks or cargo carriers. Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch-mounted accessory you may need such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. You're looking at about 12" from the ground to the top of the receiver opening and about 4" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear-most part of the back bumper.

All right, we'll begin our install by removing our bottom appearance panel here. We have one, two, three, four, and five plastic rivets that hold it in place. The way these work, you can use a flathead screwdriver or a trim panel tool and pop out the center section. Once you have the center section popped loose, the whole thing comes out. Additionally, we also have two 12 millimeter plastic nuts, one here next to our exhaust, the second one is right here in this circular cutout. You will need an extension to reach that one.

We have a third one here next to our exhaust as well, so we have three in total. Have those loosened, we can take the whole panel down. Now we need to remove our factor tow hook, which is on the driver's side. There's two 17 millimeter bolts to hold it in place. Okay now on our passenger's side, we have this spacious support tab, which has another one of those plastic fasteners.

We'll pop that guy out and pull it back. Now we'll use something to support the exhaust because need to lower it. We don't want to get it damaged. We'll be using a bungee cord. You can use a cambuckle strap, or a ratchet strap, or whatever you have. Now we'll lubricate our exhaust hangers a little bit with some spray lubricant and we'll use a pry bar to pry it off. Now we'll clean our or weld nuts that are our hitch attachment points. We're using these two here, closest to the rear of the vehicle on the passenger's side, and corresponding ones on the driver's side as well. We'll spray in some lubricant. We'll use a wire brush that we have available on our website. It's part number 814092, and run it in and out of our weld nuts a few times. Now, we'll point out how our hardware works. We have four bolts that are identical, the four conical tooth washers. I want to make sure the washers have the teeth facing away from the bolt head going towards our hitch. Now we'll raise our hitch up with an extra set of hands and secure it into place with our hardware. Now we'll snug down all of our bolts. Now we'll torque all of our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. Now we can raise our exhaust back up and reinstall the hanger. We're going to install our clip here on the passenger's side. Okay, on the underside of our underbody appearance panel, we marked out according to the instructions, two ares that we need to cut out. I'm going to use a rotary tool to make these cuts. You can use a sharp utility knife if you have one. Rotary tool is a little bit faster and I feel makes a cleaner cut. That's what it looks like once you have it trimmed out. Now we can go ahead and reinstall it. That completes our look at and installation of the Draw-Tite Sport Frame Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 24952 on our 2017 Toyota Corolla iM.

Perfect fit out of the box! Everything was included. Lowering the muffler was not required, simply slipped in place. Easy access for torque wrench I always use a floor jack to position the hitch. Cutting the bottom plastic panels required some adjustment from the instructions. 468562

I'm very impressed with this hitch! It was relatively easy to install seeing as I've never done alterations to my own car before. I did not have to lower the exhaust - was able to slide the hitch into position and secure it just fine. Cutting the holes in the plastic panel from under the car was a little challenging as the instructions don't give measurements for placement, only size. Was able to use plastic shears just fine, didn't need to break out the rotary tool. The hitch feels very secure and is relatively low-profile (see photos). I purchased this hitch specifically for carrying a tray-style bike rack and it works perfectly for that. Holds the bikes fairly high, so I don't have to worry about scrapage in dips and driveways. Overall, very pleased! 628936

I installed this hitch on my ‘17 Toyota Corolla iM. Installation was a breeze. Having a helper is useful, but I did it on my own without much trouble. Looks great and almost unnoticeable. Just a note: I did not need to remove the muffler from the support bracket. I recommend and would buy again. Customer service is A-plus! 693431

The hitch was shipped quickly and it arrived here in good shape. All the necessary hardware was included and the directions were very clear and accurate. Just a note, I was able to install the hitch without dropping the exhaust. I was able slide the hitch in place and reach the bolts with a socket and an extension. Total time was about 45 minutes and that included cutting the plastic pan a couple of times. I am pleased with the product and the install. 569525

Just installed the 24952 Draw-Tite hitch on my 2017, Corolla iM. It was an easy install with the help of the related video. Just FYI, you do not need an auto lift, or jack stands for this install. The cold garage floor works fine. Also, I did not have to release the muffler clamp to gain access to the two mounting holes on the passenger side, as shown in the directions, or the video. I was able to install the two bolts with a ratchet wrench, and a six inch extension. This includes using the torque wrench! Again, this is for the 2017 Corolla iM, I can't speak for other vehicles. etrailer is the best...Great prices and great customer service! 442649

Bought this for my IM. Going to use it for a bike rack is all. I chose the draw tight over the curt because of it"s weight. It was lighter than the curt and since I will be towing nothing with this car it was perfect for my situation. Love dealing with etrailer, this is my fourth order with them and I have no complaints!! 399864

No complaints, It works perfectly for hauling the bikes around!

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Toyota Corolla iM for Carrying Bike Rack
  • For your 2017 Toyota Corolla iM the hitch you are going to want is the Draw Tite # 24952. It does not require the stabilizer strap like the Curt # C11420 does when carrying a bike rack so it would be the way to go. It also has a better price. The Draw Tite isn't necessarily stronger or weaker than the Curt. The strap recommendation is a warranty thing that Curt came up with. They tend to just be a bit more cautious than Draw Tite. For your bikes and rack the Draw Tite would work well.

I believe from everything you are saying that you are trying to use the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-522 and the Swagman G10 # S64682 with your Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-2. You may be able to use the Curt Dual 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # D-192 instead but it only has 3-1/4" of clearance between the top of the bottom receiver tube and the bottom of the top receiver tube so I'm not sure if you will have...
