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.

All in all, the hitch has been great. It has allowed us to attach a much better bike rack than would be possible without a hitch, and it's not obtrusive when we remove the rack. Note that it is possible to install the hitch without a lift or ramps, but I struggled immensely with clearance while doing so. The most annoying part of the installation process was removing the plastic fasteners holding the trim panels on. I'd check out Amazon or a local auto parts store for replacements in case you break any irreparably (many of mine were damaged during removal by flathead screwdriver, and a few were beyond use). They're cheap enough that I wish I would've purchased them and had them on hand instead of having to run out to the store after starting the (re)assembly process. Despite the couple things above, the installation process wasn't too challenging. The installation instructions were clear and the video was very helpful. I've recommended etrailer and this specific hitch to friends, and I'd definitely buy it again!

Wasn't too bad to install. Looks ok. After a year and a few uses I just see a little rust


Comments
Hi Sam, Thanks for your feedback! The powder coating on the hitch can break down overtime with rock chips and salt on the road. You can remove the rust and prevent future rust by using a rust resistant paint. I have attached a helpful article that goes into better detail.

Nicely engineered. I had it installed on my new Prius, primarily to support a bike rack. I had installation done at the dealership to make sure it was done in the best way, knowing that Toyota does not encourage trailer hitches for the new Prius (a bike rack or trailer drives the Prius rear sensors crazy -- but there are work arounds). I have also used the hitch to pull a trailer mounted with a powered log splitter. Backing up with the trailer or bike rack is a little tricky without disengaging the rear sensors. They cause the brakes to automatically engage. Good product. I would recommend it.

Fine. It remains solid and continues to look and work fine. Unobtrusive.

It took a couple weeks for etrailer to deliver the hitch this time around. Understandable bc of the coronavirus situation. Drawtite hitch is really high quality and solid. I had the drawtite in the previous gen Prius. That one was way easier to install. This one was a lot harder with more clips and bolts to take off and also heavier. But it’s totally worth the effort. I spent about 70 minutes to install the hitch with help from my son to hold the hitch and bumper in place. We also used a jack stand to lift the hitch in the correct spot so the bumper could be placed. Also I didn’t install the rear panel bc I didn’t want to cut it out. I plan to Lee the car only for a year anyhow.

2018 Toyota Prius

I have installed the hitch on our 2018 Prius. The video was a big help. It took me about 5 hours to install partially because I was on my back. A lift would have sped things up dramatically. A lot of time was spent trying to figure how to remove the wiring harness clips from the lower bumper fascia panel. I am not a neophyte. I have lots of tools. I have at least 10 pairs of needle nose pliers both straight and angled in various sizes. After more than an hour trying various approaches, I finally realized I could unclip them with my fingers. If l could see them, it would be easy but they are in a spot where you cant "see". It would be a big help if you spent some more time in your video on how to deal with the wiring harness. I was installing on a Prius 3 which has the proximity sensors mounted in the bumper.

I have included pics of the troublesome wiring harness clip and the final installation.

The hitch came quickly via UPS and the same day it arrived I had time to install it. The instructions alloted 45 minutes for the install. Working by myself I accomplished the install in about two hours. I do work slow but it was relatively easy. I used a floor jack to hold one side up while I bolted the other. I also used a clamp to clamp the hitch to the bumper during the process. It looks clean and out of the way. I can't wait to use it. I did put a wiring harness on after I installed the hitch. Everything plugged in very nicely. The wire run up to the battery was the hard part. I will be excited to use this for a luggage rack or to pull a small trailer. I have two Kayaks waiting for a date with my wife at the lake!

2019 Toyota Prius

We purchased this hitch for a 2019 Prius, specifically to mount a bike rack. Since the top of the hatch is window, you can't hang a trunk rack. We chose to have this professionally installed. Previous experience reinstalling the plastic clips underneath was challenging so we left it to an expert. We are not auto DIYers. The hitch is perfect, barely visible, especially next to the black bumper. Our old Yakima Hold Up bike rack fit the hitch and car perfectly. The system feels solid. I can't advise about time for installation other than the car was ready for pick up 1.75 hours after dropping it off. Thanks etrailer for making purchasing the right hitch easy. We especially appreciated the 'verified to fit' notes.

This has been a great hitch for my Prius Prime. It is discretely tucked up close to the bumper and only the receiver is seen. I use the hitch mainly for a bike rack and some light utility trailer hauling. Installation is challenging, but possible for DIY with the aid of the well filmed online video. One might consider buying it and having a mechanic install if you are not skilled with tools. I’m happy with my hitch.



- 24966
by:

A year later, still looking good and working very well. It's very discreet and it mounts high enough that it's not anywhere near the lowest point under my 2016 Prius. So it never hits the ground! See photos below, it only sticks out maybe a half inch beyond the bumper so it's also never in the way. I had to install it by myself, it's no problem to do so. First, just remove 3 of the mounting bolts on each side. Then - one side at a time - remove the 4th bolt and slip the hitch behind the bumper frame just on that side and loosely install the bolt.



- 24966
by:

Works just as advertised on my 2021 Prius Prime. I watched some [online] videos to learn how to remove the bumper and reinstall with the hitch. It looks a bit daunting but it went smoothly without any complications and wasn't too big a task. I managed it by myself although having a second pair of hands would have definitely made it easier.

Item was shipped and received faster than expected. The online instructions and videos were very helpful. There was a slight variation from my 2019 Prius to the 2018 video, but I managed the installation within 1.5 hours

I am super happy with this product and the whole experience ordering from etrailer. I was amazed that they shipped it so fast for free! The included instructions and bonus material on safe trailering and how to determine your trailer tongue weight was great. The instructions were easy to following and I was able to install the hitch in pretty short order. Fit and finish are excellent and it's already in use with my new Saris bike rack, hauling my mountain bike. The hitch sticks out plenty far to keep things away from the car without sticking out too far and being obvious or a hazard. Thanks for a great product, price, shipping and service!

I’m extremely satisfied with my etrailer hitch. I installed it myself after watching the video a couple of times. It probably took a couple of hours or so but everything fit perfectly and was fairly easy. Just awkward getting my big hand in some of the places. Also I was installing on a Toyota Prius prime which almost sits on the ground and I’m old. I’m sending a couple of pictures. You can’t hardly even see the hitch. It is perfect for my bicycle rack.

My hitch arrived a day early. It was well packaged and easy for the delivery service to handle. I like the convenient installation scheme: No drilling and no extra bolts needed. I am mounting this on my 2021 Prius LE and will be using it to pull my 4' x 8' flat-bed trailer and mount my bike carrier.

Great fitting hitch, great looking hitch (meaning you barely notice it and what you do see isn't ugly). The instruction video was excellent and is about accurate in it's difficulty rating. The hard part is lifting the bumper and hitch assembly up together and getting the first couple bolts in to hold it up.

I installed it in about 4 hours. Did not elevate the car. The video from etrailer was excellent. I used some blocking in the center in place of the "extra hands" and that worked fine. It has to be able to hold the hitch and the bumper beam. The disassembly and the bolt up was the hard part. Putting it all back together was a breeze.

    The trailer hitch receivers that fit a 2020 Toyota Prius are the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24966 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11473. Of the two, I highly recommend the Curt # C11473 because it gives you the best bumper clearance and ground clearance, which is important for accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers to keep them safely away from your Prius while avoiding scraping the ground.
