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.

2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV

Draw-Tite hitch arrived within 2-3 days of ordering, in good condition. Paint was scraped off each side by packing materials, so I painted over the bare spots with some spare paint. Installation on 2019 Chevy Bolt is straightforward. Documentation is good. Installation took me about an hour, as I took the opportunity to teach my son about deep sockets & how to use a torque wrench, etc. My main problem was that I have no experience with the plastic connectors that hold the plastic bumper panel to the frame of the car, and I didn't remove them correctly. I should have paid more attention to available videos! I include a photo of the connector in my review. You must first remove the middle "spike", which serves to spread the connector in the hole - like a masonry anchor. I tried to pry the entire connector from the hole, which tore up the biting sides. But I was still able to re-use the connector after removing it. Worst part of the installation was cutting the needed opening in the plastic bumper of my new car - which I did with a drill & coping saw. But it looks good when done. I believe the opening required for the Draw-Tite hitch is an inch wider than required for the Curt hitch, but not sure about that. I plan to use the hitch to tow my small aluminum boat about 85 miles to a lake during the summer. Until now I've been pulling it with a mid-size sedan. Main difference I notice about this hitch on the Bolt is that the trailer is louder in the cabin of the bolt - presumably due to the way the hitch is attached to the main under-frame of the Bolt. The Bolt showed no problems pulling my boat, and handled confidently. I used the same coupler & 2" ball I've been using with my previous car. Pre-distressed. One nice surprise when I backed my car up to the trailer is that the ball is visible in the Bolt's backup camera! (My previous car didn't have a backup camera.) But I did still find it difficult to gauge the horizontal distance between my trailer socket and the ball when backing up. Hopefully will get better with a little experience.


Comments
No problems after pulling my boat to the lake a dozen times during the first year with the hitch.

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.


Comments
The hitch has worked out great. I easily installed it and have had no problem since. I use it up to 5 times per week, it is solid and works as designed. Price was great. And installed myself.

The Draw-Tite hitch on my '19 Chevy Bolt is trouble free and working perfectly after one year. I work slowly and the easy installation still took less than 1 hour. The hitch is barely noticeable. The minor cut made to the plastic under-part was easy and not an issue. For comparison, my previous Curt hitch receiver was REALLY loose, allowing my bike rack and bike to bounce all around. The Draw-Tite is snug and worthy of 5 stars.


Comments
Perfect for on my 19 Chevy Bolt - no wiggles, easy to put bike rack on and off. I still recommend Draw-Tite,

This Hitch installed easily on my 2020 Bolt. Total time to install was about an hour and that included making a template and cutting the bumper cover for the receiver clearance that needs to be made. The hitch looks to be well made and there were no scratches on it when I removed it from the packaging box.

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.


Comments
Hitch still works perfectly. Very satisfied.

Top company! Flawless design and quality for our 2021 Chevy Bolt. I picked up a couple ideas while installing that might help. I used a box cutter by stabbing the knife into my 3 1/4 by 5 inch measured line on the fascia instead of trying to make a bunch of shallow cuts. You can stab about an inch at a time and it is very clean. The center of the fascia can be found easily on the Bolt - just look for a subtle raised area on the edge, about 1/32 inch by one inch. If you are working alone, you can lift one side of the tow bar until you catch it on the 15mm frame rail bolt and then start the nut enough to hold it. Then you can easily lift up the other side and do the same thing. It's really an easy job. I think the second time you do it (with confidence), you can do it ten times faster! Great product!

2020 Ford Flex

I was totally satisfied with the Draw-Tite hitch. I had originally installed a 100-lb rated 1.25-inch hitch available from GM on my 2020 Chevy Bolt. Into the hitch I mounted a Kuat 2-bike rear-mount rack. I was unhappy with the GM hitch from the start because the flex in the hitch mount caused the bikes to bounce wildly up and down when I hit any irregularity in the road. I purchased the Draw-Tite Unit because it looked beefier and was rated to 200 pounds. The bounce I experienced with the GM product was completely addressed by the Draw-Tite receiver. Great product.


Comments
After a year of carrying two bicycles on a bike rack mounted to the Draw-Tite Hitch I continue to be pleased with the hitch. No issues.

Solid construction and easy to install. Directions were precise. My pro tip/suggestion when cutting the plastic section of the Chevrolet Bolt bumper is to heat up a utility knife blade for ease of cutting. Very satisfied customer here in Arizona.

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.

Easy install! I'm not an experienced tinkerer, though I have done a Draw-Tite hitch before. I had this one on in 45 minutes from unpacking. One great improvement - this one no longer has the "stop" inside the receiver. Previously I had to grind that down to get my bike rack to insert properly (it's a rack that can be 2 or 4 bikes, so I just know to not load more than 2 bikes).

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.


Comments
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!

17 min install. Make sure you watch the video on the etrailer website for the installation, it will save you time and a headache. I would recommend leaving the pull through/fish wires on the carriage bolts until you are ready to screw them into place as this will decrease the likelihood you push them back into the frame. Helpful to have a second person place the hitch with you and pull down the rear plastic fascia if you don’t have a lift and are working on the ground level. Hitch is a good bang for your buck and 1-1/4 is about right for the Bolt. not like you are pulling a big camper. We are using it for a 2 bike rack on the back. So far so good

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-4” 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.

Excellent product, price, and shipping! Had it installed in about a leisurely hour. You'll need 15mm and 18mm sockets, and a torque wrench if you want to do it properly. The "blocks" seemed to seat the bolt heads just a little better one side up than the other. You don't need to remove the fascia clips til after you're done cutting the slot. A utility knife worked fine for me for cutting. Leave the fish wire on the frame bolts til you have the hitch actually up on the car. When you're ready to mount it it works best if you're underneath, head first (head under the spare tire well, feet away from the car, with the hitch on your chest. Do a bench press to get it past the fascia and onto the bumper bolts. Put the bumper nuts on loosely and then fish the frame bolts through the slots. Before you tighten everything up, make sure you don't have part of the wheel well liner caught up against the frame where the frame bolts are.

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.

This should immediately be certified for a 2022 Bolt. It’s actually EASIER to install on a 2022. Chevy changed the rear bumper cover. You no longer have to cut a piece out of it. All you have to do is remove a small panel they added that’s attached with two screws.

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.

2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV

I installed this on my 2020 Bolt Premier with no problem. 80% of the time was spent on cutting the fascia; everything else was bolt-on. I cut the fascia while still connected to the supports, then I removed the fasteners. I left a small strip of fascia connecting the two sides because I didn't want any chance of the plastic flapping around.

    For your 2017 Chevy Bolt EV there are only Class I 1-1/4 inch hitches available like the Draw Tite part # 24956 which will limit your choices but there are still great options for your vehicle. The Saris Freedom part # SA4025F is the best ightweight option. It's easy to remove and only weighs 35 lbs which is very light for a platform bike rack. This rack also only touches the tires of the bikes when loaded so it won't damage or scratch any paint finishes.

  • Ground Clearance for Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch on 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV
    I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and he stated that the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch # 24956, which is confirmed to fit your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, has a measurement from the ground to the top of the receiver when installed on your vehicle of 11 inches. So this will provide some more ground clearance when compared to the 7 inches for the Curt hitch that you mentioned in your question. This hitch will provide a 200 pound tongue weight capacity and no drilling will be required...

  • Recommendation on a Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV
    Between the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C11457, and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch , # 24956, I recommend the Draw-Tite Hitch for its better ground clearance. The Draw-Tite hitch's receiver opening sits closer to the hitch cross tube. The location of the receiver will give you more ground clearance over the Curt hitch design.When installing this hitch, minor trimming of the bumper fascia is required. Consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act....

  • Does Draw-Tite Class 1 Receiver Hitch Need A Stabilization Strap?
    No. The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24956 for your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV does not require a stabilization strap for any non-towing accessory like the Curt hitches. If you will be using this hitch for towing, I recommend the Sportframe Drawbar 2-1/8" Rise or 2-3/4" Drop 2000 lb Kit # 3593 along with hitch ball # 19258 for 2 inch or # 19256 for 1-7/8 inch hitch ball. For your vehicle wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha Upgraded Modulite...

  • Best Hitch to Use with a Thule Helium Pro on a 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV
    I have a great hitch for you! It's the Draw-Tite Class I, part # 24956. This has a 1-1/4" receiver with a maximum towing capacity of 2000 pounds and a maximum tongue weight of 200 pounds. I've linked to a video installation of this hitch, and you will see in the video that it has a hitch pin hole recessed far enough to accommodate the Helium Pro. The Helium Pro, part # TH9042PRO, fits a 1-1/4" receiver like the Draw-Tite by design. The piece used to adapt it to 2" receivers is a separate...

  • How to Carry 4 Montague Paratrooper Bikes on a 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV
    I have a couple of possible solutions for your 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV. First, though, the Draw-Tite Sports Frame, part # 24956, is a Class I hitch. It is not possible to carry more than 2 bikes on a rack for Class I hitches. The first solution involves utilizing that 2-bike feature and carrying the other 2 in some other way. For the 2-bike rack, I recommend the Swagman Chinook, part # S64683. It can handle 2 bikes at 45 pounds each and fits into 1-1/4" hitches like yours. I've linked...

  • Can Rear Hatch Of 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV Be Opened W/O Tilting Thule Helium Pro 2 Bike Rack?
    It is unlikely that the hatch on your 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV will be able to open with the Thule Helium Pro 2 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Aluminum # TH9042PRO installed in the Draw-Tite # 24956 without tilting or removing the bike rack. This will be the same for any of the trailer hitch receivers for your vehicle. The # TH9042PRO does tilt but requires the bikes to be removed from the rack, and does allow most rear hatches to open though we have not had a chance to...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And Hitch Mounted Bike Rack For 2017 Chevy Bolt EV
    If you have a 2017 Chevy Bolt, that is not the EV, we don't have a hitch that is confirmed to fit. If you have the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV, then the hitches you mentioned are confirmed to fit. I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24956 over the Curt trailer hitch receiver because it is sturdier and can handle double the weight capacity for your bike rack. A Class 1 hitch will limit your bike rack options due to the shank size...
