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. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers.

Hi im happy i purchase this product took me 2 to install the product from installing and cutting underneath dont rush to cut the space so you wont cut it so wide you have to measure the center, the rear bumper to look neat i use flexible rubber hose around the cut at seen in the picture. I love this product because you can hide the long tube underneath the bumper to look nice and clean. Just follow the instruction and everything just fine. I surely recommend this product to any sedan car who wants there hitch rack looks great. Thank you 559916

Product is listed as a 9/10 on difficulty. I would say like a 3-4/10. Once you get the bumper cover off it’s smooth sailing. I did it by myself in about an hour or so. It’s nice not having an exposed bar under the bumper. I’m liking it a lot. 512956

Great hitch. Pretty easy install. Website stated 10/10 difficulty...was a little apprehensive because of that...but went ahead. Glad I did! Took about 2 hours...with two phone calls from my daughters along the way. Used a dremmel tool to cut out the bumper for clearance per the instructions. Interestingly, I used the dremmel tool to cut out the slot for the receiver...it kinda melts the bumper...just rub it off with your finger and it is a smooth clean cut. First picture is with the bumper and fascia off...second is the back of my new 2019 hatchback with the bumper still on...3rd is the finished installation...looks great! Going to put a Black on Black Honda hitch cover on...$4.95 on eBay! Price on the hitch was great too! 616593

Hitch works great and was shipped quickly. I plan to pull a small harbor freight utility trailer with it for the occasional item that won't fit in the car. It took about 3 hours to install it and about the same about of time to install the electrical. Nice clean installation. The electrical kit was very nice and included a test light for finding the correct wires to tap into. The hardest part of the install was removing the rear bumper cover panel. It was hard to figure out how to get the clips to unhook with a screw driver. I found pulling up from the bottom while using a screwdriver to pop the clips seemed to work. 323165

Installed on a 2017 Civic EXT in a couple of hours. Fits perfectly and looks great with the cross tube hidden under the bumper cover. Instructions were well written. Hardest part for me was removing the bumper cover / being afraid I would break a clip or scratch the paint. Just take your time on this part of the process! I regularly tow a small kayak trailer with all-up weight of 500 lbs and tongue weight about 60 lbs. The hitch handles it without issue. 503233

I hesitated to purchase this hitch because of the installation. I’m glad I made the purchase. Much easier installation than anticipated. 1.5 hours total...including clean up, searching for a dropped screw and measuring 3 times to make sure my cut was accurate. I placed a moving blanket under the rear of the car, no jack needed. You need to use some force to get things going but I was careful. I watched the 2019 hatchback installation video a few times...mine is the sedan and things were exactly the same. Good luck with your installation. 706534

Perfect Hitch for the civic. It is so discrete barely appearing below the bumper. The other type of hitch that attaches under the car requires drilling is not good. This hitch is seems perfect

Kit for a 2016 Honda Civic sedan. Bolt-on. Also shows a Star Wars plug and a Class 1 to Class 2 hitch adapter. I'm really happy with how it turned out, even if it was a ton of effort to put on the vehicle. 505351

I installed this Draw-Tite hitch on a new 2019 Civic hatchback. The installation took about two hours and went pretty smoothly. The video on etrailer.com was very helpful to understand the installation steps, but I made a few deviations that may be helpful to others. 1. I removed the tail light housings completely as it makes seeing the clips easier when reinstalling the bumper cover. After removing the two phillips screws, the tail lights are secured by two clips that release by pulling the housing outward. I then just unscrewed each bulb socket, released the one cable stay, and set them aside. 2. I used an air powered cut-off tool to trim the bumper ends for clearance - it worked fast and made a clean cut. 3. When reinstalling the bumper with the hitch, there is a hooked sheetmetal tab that extends from the bumper mount point on the car frame and rests in a notch on the bumper's mounting flange. With the added offset from the hitch, that tab can be difficult to latch and may get in the way. After struggling a bit to get both sides latched, I ended up just bending one tab down a little to move it out of the way. I'm guessing it's just an assembly aid for the factory. 4. The etrailer.com installation video has Shane cutting the fascia twice as wide as what the instruction sheet says. The video describes cutting an opening 5 inches wide (2 1/2 inches on each side of center), where the instruction sheet diagram shows a cut 2 1/2 inches wide (1 1/4 inches on each side of center). The narrower cut matches the hitch width and looks really clean. After using a step drill for the rounded corners of the cut , I then used a sharp razor blade to trim the plastic fascia. The bumper cover was out in the sun for some time which probably softened it a bit, but the razor cut it easily and made for a very clean cut. Very happy with the results! 690728

Hitch works perfectly. This is my 5th E-trailer hitch I have owned and installed now. I would buy again for the future (when necessary) and would recommend. I installed this on a 2018 Honda Civic Si with center mount exhaust. To do this, I had to cut off the mass production exhaust and rebuild it (see photos). Looks great and works perfectly. 565045

Great quality hitch, relatively easy installation, looks nice and clean once installed. The only knock I could give is on the installation instructions. They fail to mention the metal tab that helps to keep the bumper in place. Once you put the hitch on and then the bumper over the hitch, the clearance for that tab is not enough. I ended up shaving off a little bit of the inside of the hook part to get the bumper to fit. Other than that minor snag, everything went smooth and instructions were spot on. Thanks! 914804

Fit very well and was pretty easy to install as long as you have an extra set of hands to get the bumper cover on and off. Be sure lay out a blanket or few towels to set the cover on to prevent scratching the paint. Making cut in cover to clear hitch is easy as long as you have the right tools. Same applies for the two spots in the mounting bar where you need to cut the metal. I used a Dremel tool with appropriate blades for cutting each of the areas. I used masking tape to mark my cut lines on the bumper cover. Directions are very clear with photos of areas to cut. I installed to receive a two tray bike carrier. Has held solid for two seasons. This is my third hitch purchased from etrailer. Very happily their products. 862532

This is a great product at a great price. It was shipped to me quickly and the install was very easy and straight forward. I recommend this to any civic owner that wants to attach a bike rack or cargo tray to the back of their car. I also want to throw out there that eTrailer sells a 1-1/4 locking wobble bolt Incase your rack doesn’t come standard with one. 851798

Picked this up locally at the eTrailer.com will-call window. Installed in about an hour and a half or so. Pull the bolts holding the metal bumper and put back on with this sandwiched underneath with the included hardware. Works great for putting a bike carrier on my wife's car. Took bikes on a 1000 mi road trip from MO to MN and back and didn't have any issues. Haven't used for towing, but for hitch accessories it seems to be doing great. Only had to do a very minor amount of trimming to the plastic bumper where this vertical down supports to the receiver made contact. Only thing that can be seen from the rear is the receiver itself so it's pretty well hidden. 828714

This hitch is solidly constructed and installed without problem. Just follow the instructions. One thing to add to the directions is to bend the tab that fits into a slot in the bumper at each end. The hitch adds enough width to prevent the tab from fitting. 822344

Excellent product. I saw the other Civic Si with this hitch on it and knew it could be a cleaner install. All it takes is a quick trip to the muffle shop to have them mock it up and shorten the 90s coming off your mufflers. All advice is given without any warranty or acceptance of liability. If you follow these instructions, it's at your own risk. Cut the 90s off leaving about 1/2" of straight pipe coming out of the mufflers. Then take the 90s and shorten them until they avoid the hitch. Then reweld the shortened 90s back on (I used a local muffler shop) and add a 2.25" pipe (bumped out) to slip over the existing pipes and reweld everything. Consider finishing with black hi-temp spray paint. Couple other tips that were not in the instructions... you will greatly benefit from having access to an angle grinder to notch the bumper. There were a couple steps that were not called out in the instructions, namely: 1. Directly behind the flanges connecting the bar to the frame you need to make a small notch for the flange to fit flush. 2. There are two tabs that need to be bent down that hold the stock bumper up. You can't properly bolt the hitch up with these sticking out. 820226

Easy to install and love how it looks. I was skeptical of having to cut into the plastic to make room for the hitch but after triple-checking my measurements everything turned out great. 820057

  • Will EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Fit a 2016 Honda Civic Coupe?
    The EcoHitch Trailer Hitch # 306-X7235 is not a fit for your 2016 Honda Civic Coupe.

    The hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite # 24954. Between the two that fit your 2018 Honda Civic it's a much cleaner look because the cross tube is hidden behind the rear bumper. All you see sicking out is the receiver opening and the safety chain loops. It's more work to install it but it's worth it in the end. I've linked the install details for you. A great bike rack for you is the Saris Freedom EX, part # SA4412F. The rack itself only weighs 27 pounds so it's easier to handle...

  • Why Does Bumper Beam of 2019 Honda Civic Need to be Trimmed to Install Draw Tite Trailer Hitch
    Since the Draw Tite hitch part # 24954 for your 2019 Honda Civic fits between the bumper beam and the rear frame area of your vehicle it adds a bit of length to the bumper beam assembly. By that I mean the bumper beam sticks out further due to the bracket width of the hitch. So a corner of the bracket has to be taken off so that the bumper cover can fit over the beam without interference. See attached picture that I took from the install instructions.
