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. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

Finally a place to hang my truck nutz! I would recommend this hitch above all other options and other vendors, even (especially) over the hitch listed on the Chevy accessory web page. Very easy to install, took under 45 minutes. Backing up on to a set of ramps will make your job way easier. The hardest part is trimming the facia, and that's not that hard. Do use a sharp drill to make the corners, as it makes for a much cleaner corner that is less apt to tear, and make trimming easier. I used a steel rule and x-acto blade and lots and lots of passes. A jig saw will make an ugly line, not to mention cover you in plastic shavings. Over-all I'd say this is the easiest and cleanest install of a hitch possible for this vehicle. Other hitches either require the complete disassembly of the rear of the vehicle, or hang too far below the bumper for comfort, or both, and are purported to be flimsy at best. The 24956 has thick steel, good welds, and seemingly durable paint. Be careful pulling out the plastic pins on the facia, it's a two step process. Carefully pull out the center core, then the rest of the pin will easily come out. The fishing wires for the main bolts are a fantastic tool. I couldn't imagine doing this job without them. The hitch itself seems very sturdy, far better than any of the other 1 1/4" competitors, and I for one plan on towing a small utility trailer. After bouncing up and down on the receiver, I feel confident that this is up to the job. I can't wait to start dragging my toys down the road. This is an excellent match for the Chevy Bolt EV. 749659

This hitch installed easily on my 2017 Chevy Bolt. I used a vibrating Ridgid hand tool with a half circle blade witch was perfect for the job. After cut used a razor blade tool to remove burs left from cut, came out perfectly. Hitch mounted easily wife helped me lifting it behind rear bumper fascia and holding in place while I put on bolts. Took us under a hour total after initially trying to cut fascia with vinal siding cutters which didn't work. I ordered the hitch on Sunday, it shipped to me before I got up on Monday and had it delivered on the east coast by Wednesday/Thursday on regular shipping. Everything was great all around. 730186

I am pretty happy with my purchase. The tow hitch arrived very promptly within a few days of ordering it. The longest part of the install was marking and cutting the plastic bumper. Once that was done it took two of us 15 minutes to bolt it in place. I did find the recommended ball mount a little low for my trailer and you might like to try one that has a 3" rise. The instructions were a bit sparse but there are several video clips on how to approach it. I used the 119147KIT for the lights and I found a guide on the Chevy Bolt forum. I do need to say that this isn't for the faint hearted! 655138

Solid product. It was delivered to my door in less than a week. The installation instruction is simple and accurate. It took me about an hour to install the hitch because I didn't have a 15mm sock that is long enough to remove the rear bumper nuts. Once I bought the socket from local Lowes and the rest of the installation is easy. 691240

Very happy with this Draw-Tite hitch on my Chevy Bolt, that I use to mount a Thule 2-bike carrier. This was purchased to replace the Chevrolet supplied hitch option that was installed originally on my Bolt and was not fit for purpose, swaying backwards and forwards and distorting and sagging after only a few uses at well below its rated load. I've used the Draw-Tite hitch for one year now without it sagging. It is clearly a more robust design with a far more stable mounting geometry. 621544

Great hitch, easy to install. Other hitches that have 2" receivers require removing the bumper. As far as install goes, this one is very simple. It took me about 45 minutes and the longest part was cutting the lower trim. The instructions call for a cut far larger than needed. It's still 5" long but I shortened the horizontal by about 1/2 in on either side. I also cut more of a T shape than a rectangle so it hugs the receiver tube tighter. I am happy with it. It does sit a little lower than I hope and really cuts into the departure clearance, but no more than a typical sedan lower bumper. Instructions were easy to read. 695182

I chose the Draw-Tite hitch for my Chevy Bolt EV over the Curt hitch as my two bike rack would be right at the Curt 100# tongue-weight limit, and I did not want to worry about the stabilizer straps called for in the Curt installation instructions; "WARNING:WE RECOMMEND THE USE OF 18050 STABILIZING STRAPS FOR ALL NON-TRAILER (WHEEL-LESS) LOADS". Draw-Tite hitch arrived well packaged and in new condition. All items needed to do the installation were included. Fasteners that hold the rear Bumper Fascia onto the frame were easy to remove and provided excellent access. You will need to make the cut-out for the receiver prior to mounting the hitch. Installation was easy and straight forward. Used the hitch/rack this past weekend. Easy to load and stable on rough road and at freeway speeds. I would buy this hitch again. 397766

From other reviews I was a little sceptical with how the final installation would go. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to install and how tidy the end result presented itself. Even with my ultra-careful execution, I was done in 45 minutes. Now I could do a second one in less than 15. I included a picture to show how tight the finished install tucks up under the bumper. Kudos all around. Going for a ride now. 500797

I was concerned about cutting the fascia, but it wasn't difficult and the car looks fine afterwards. The cut area is far under the car. I put painter's tape on the fascia, marked out the area to be cut, centering between the two holes for plastic fasteners. It cut easily with a utility knife, making several passes. The hole dimensions in the manual are accurate. The hole is cut adjacent (cut in from) the lower edge. The rest of the installation was easy. It would help to have extra deep sockets for removing the 15mm bolts, but it can be done with a standard wrench, and a regular socket will work for reinstalling. You will need a deep socket for torquing the bolts that come with the kit. Technically the bolts aren't metric (11/16" socket) , but a deep 17mm socket fit. 561161

Excellent fit and simple bolt-on installation. My only trepadation was the requirement to cut out a slot in the plastic bumper cover (on my brand new car); to accommodate the hitch receiver. Two problems: determining the location and length of the slot; and actually making the cut. Instructions were not very clear on these points, so I offer my experience in the paragraph below. I am very happy with the hitch for use with my bike rack and for moving my tow dolly around the storage yard or RV site. Located the l-r position for the cuts by loosely aligning the hitch to the chassis w/o the first cut. I marked the cut lines to clear the plate above the receiver with a pen. Length of the cut was found with trial and error. Removed the hitch and then first tried cutting the cowling with tin-snips, then a hacksaw, finally used box cutter with success. After initial cuts of 3-to-4ā€ along the sides, I bolted the hitch in place and continued to lengthen the slot until the cowling no longer pressed against the receiver. I could find no way to neatly make the cut across the end of the slot, so I just shortened the flap to clear the aft end of crossbar and let the rest of the flap to remain and lie unrestrained atop the receiver plate. I have not attempted to wire up a trailer light connector to the Bolt, but some folks might appreciate your providing instructions on how to do so for small trailers. 592310

I was worried that my recently released car wouldn't have a hitch that would work, but after research online, I found the correct model and etrailer.com had it for a great price. The shipping was quick and all the parts and instructions were included. It was nice to do business with a company that actually knows how do a transaction without drama! I will definitely buy from them again. 401622

Both products are still performing as they did a year ago. The hitch holds the rack perfectly and also takes my bike rack. You guys are the only ones I will use for the hitch on my next car which I will be getting in the next 6-8 months. Thanks for your excellent customer service and follow up, thats what sets you guys apart from your competitors!

Went on quickly. The reason to take out the two plastic pins is so you can place the hitch behind the facia. I left the pins in until after I cut the facia for better stability while cutting. 643637

Solid hitch and arrived in perfect condition. Installation was straight forward. It helps to raise the car for access. I just blocked each rear wheel 1.5ā€ but more would have made it easier. You will need 15mm and 11/16 deep sockets. 546587

Recently installed hitch on my 2017 Chevy Bolt EV. Package arrived on time in good condition. The installation was straightforward. Instructions were adequate. It took a little longer to install because I was overly cautious about cutting the fascia cleanly, and it really doesn't show, so I needn't have been so careful. Looks good on the car and works perfectly with my Thule bike carrier. 468691

Arrived quickly. Simple to install. The receiver offered as an option by Chevy is from a different manufacturer and has a maximum tongue weight of only 100 pounds. This one, from Draw-Tite can handle 200 pounds. I'm glad I checked load ratings before having Chevy put an inferior one on my new Bolt! 473212

Installing the hitch went MUCH better than I could have hoped for. The instructions were accurate and easy to follow. The hitch itself is a BEAST - I have no reservations about attaching my rather heavy bike rack. Excellent all the way around. I particularly like the way the hitch is tucked up and looks like a factory install and does not lower your ground clearance. 711623

It doesn't get much easier than that. 20 minute install. Their piano wire bolt fish tape is a great idea. Tin snips work great for the 3-1/2 x 5" cutout in the rear apron of car. Hitch is a little low to the ground but that's because of the car not this hitch. The center of the receiver socket is about 10-1/2" off the ground, so keep this in mind if you expect to put a cargo basket on this hitch. If you can find a basket with a little serpentine in the neck, it would be wise to get it. I installed a draw bar with a 3" rise and can see the ball in the rear view camera so backing up to a trailer is a breeze. 558286

Switched to this Draw-tire hitch after the dealer installed the Curt hitch. When my bike rack was on the Curt 1.25 hitch it wobbled around with way too much play. This DrawTite is designed MUCH better with stronger support and higher weight rating. Bike rack is now much tighter and less wobble. Plus more peace of mind. Iā€™d recommend this! 803786

    The only trailer hitch we currently have confirmation of fit for a 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11457 which I confirmed by reaching out to Curt directly.

I'd be curious to know what bike racks were being used and the weight of the bikes as well. I wouldn't be shocked if the people who had sagging and swaying were overloading the rack/hitch.

If it were me I would go with the Draw-Tite hitch # 24956 for 2 reasons. First, Draw-Tite does not require the use of a stabilization strap for non-trailer loads like Curt does. If you went with the Curt hitch you would also need to use stabilization strap # 18050. And second customers have reported that the receiver on the Curt hitch...

  • Recommended Wiring Harness and Hitch For 2019 Chevy Bolt
    For a wiring harness on the 2019 Chevy Bolt I recommend the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and Installation Kit part # 119250KIT which is a clamp on style wiring harness. There is not a custom plug and play option available for the Chevy Bolt but the wiring harness clamps to the vehicle wiring instead of splicing in so this is your best option. If you need a hitch, I recommend Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24956 which...

    Thank you for your purchase of Draw-Tite Class I hitch # 24956 and Curt 4-pole wiring harness # C59236, both of which are confirmed fits on your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV. This wiring harness is a powered/hardwired type that requires a single wire to be run to the battery along with the spliced connections required for the input signals from the car. Routing of that one power wire is often the most challenging part of the installation as it can require some creativity to find a safe and...

  • Recommendation of a Thule Helium Aero Bike Rack to fit a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt
    For your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, the Thule Helium Aero 2 Bike Rack, # TH9042PRO, will be a great bike rack for carrying your two bikes. The Helium Aero is a very light rack that will work well for you because of the light weight capacity of the hitches available for the 2017 Bolt. I also recommend using the Thule Bike Adapter Bar, # TH982XT, for your woman's frame bikes with the Helium Aero bike rack. The adapter will add the upper crossbar that will allow you to set your bikes on the Helium...

    Yes, the Rola Bike rack part # 59400 that you referenced will easily fit the Draw Tite hitch part # 24956 which is a fit for your 2017 Chevy Bolt EV. The hitch lock part # 5200 is also a fit for the Rola bike rack as well.
