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. Technical Support

At 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.

2021 Honda Accord

I ordered the Draw-Tite Sportframe trailer hitch receiver for my 2021 Accord Hybrid and it fit perfectly. I installed it myself using etrailer's 2020 Accord video. Although the video wasn't didn't match my car exactly, it was close enough that the installation went very smoothly. The entire installation took about an hour, mostly because this was my first one and I took my time. I would definitely recommend etrailer to anyone looking for a hitch receiver.


Outstanding hitch. No need to drill holes or make modifications to car as with other hitches. Complete bolt on assembly with straightforward installation.

2018 Honda Accord

I was a bit intimidated at first about pulling off the bumper of our 2018 Honda Accord to install the hitch. But with the recommended tools and following the etrailer video it went on without a problem. We use the hitch for our bike rack and it works well. One thing we discovered was that we had to disable our rear warning sensor when we used the bike rack. It’s a simple switch on the dashboard. Recommend buying the fastener removal tools. They’ll make the project much easier to complete.


Amazing hitch. Very unobtrusive. Hard to see it on the car unless you're looking. This was very important for me. I use it with a 2 inch lift hitch to get a good height. Have never drug it in a driveway. Install was straightforward and they give you the hardware needed. The safety chain loops are also a good size. Very happy with the hitch and will look at draw-tite for any future hitch.

2022 Honda Accord

Installation was easy. Directions were spot on! Looks great!

2018 Honda Accord

Price was reasonable and shipping was free for this hitch designed to fit a 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid. The directions to remove the bumper and install the hitch was decent, but I would suggest going online to see how the bumper removal goes. From opening the box to taking the final install pictures, it took about 40 minutes.

I’ll be using this for primarily for a bike rack, and rarely, for moving light items on a rack that won’t fit inside the vehicle.

I’m a little disappointed that a locking pin wasn’t included in the package, but not a deal breaker. Overall, still an excellent experience.

Still works great for hauling road bikes on a platform type carrier. So much better than having a Saris Bones on the trunk!

This trailer hitch is excellent. Very easy to install. It fits behind your car bumper with no alterations required. The hardest part of the installation was removing my car bumper. Once’s the bumper is off you have to remove the bumper guard and install the hitch under the guard, just line up the screw holes with the bumper guard and tighten then install in body bumper back on. Be careful not to break any clips while reinstalling the bumper. Should be done with two people.

2019 Honda Accord

This was a great addition for my girlfriends honda accord. We moved out to Scottsdale Arizona from Chicago and wanted to tow my scooter there. The scooter weighs about 170lbs and the rack is about 20lbs. The tongue weight limit is 200lbs so we were cutting it close. I was amazed of how strong and sturdy these piece is made. This is not a Chinese piece it's actually manufactured in Mexico.


I selected this product because it would mount to my vehicle without having to drill holes in the body/frame. The sole purpose of this hitch was to be able to mount a bike rack to my car. Since i don't intend to tow a trailer, I didn't need to purchase the wiring harness.

When I unpacked the hitch I noticed some of the coating was missing from the mounting plates. I was informed by etrailer that they generally do not replace a hitch for cosmetic reasons as road debris will cause the same kind of damage. Since this part of the hitch was in contact with the car body, I touched it up with rust resistant paint before installing it.

Installation went smoothly following the step-by-step instructions complete with photos.

I've used the bike rack three times since the installation of the hitch, twice carrying two bikes for over 100 miles. The hitch holds the bike rack securely with little movement of the bikes detected in the mirror while driving at highway speed or travelling over rough city streets.

2018 Honda Accord

Bolted right on. Took about an hour just like the instructions said. Hardest part is getting the plastic rivets out of the bumper cover. Also, if your car has a few miles on it, be warned that a bunch of dirt and gravel will come out of the inner metal bumper and make a mess on the floor.

Still no problems. It is interesting that even with no bikes on it, just having a rack on the hitch cuts my highway milage about 7.
Steve - 05/31/2022


A concern, and modified instructions. Excellent quality and 100% Bolt on. I did this alone and without a helper determined it would be hard to hold both the hitch and the pumper together to install the bolts. I took some long 8 mm x 1 25 Bolts and cut the heads off to use as locating studs this made it so easy I almost felt guilty. The hardest part is the rear facia and when reinstalling I decided to remove one of the tail lights(2 screws) to better see the locking tabs These two things made it the install much easier. I used a very accurate torque wrench to tighten the bolts to 25 foot pounds. I backed off at a little over 20 because I felt the bolts were starting to stretch. Depending on the grade of bolt torque charts for 8mm bolts state 11 to 20 pounds. Your tech department should double check this. Overall I'm very happy with the results. Thank you.

2018 Honda Accord

This is an excellent hitch for my 2018 Honda Accord. Had a mechanic install since I wasn't comfortable taking the bumper face off but once installed, it is solid, neat, and sturdy. The mounting holes and provided bolts fit perfectly. It doesn't protrude too much from bottom of bumper and does not protrude at all from rear of the car.


Easy installation - and have had zero issues with the product.

Fantastic - Not one issue

2019 Honda Accord

Very prompt in getting the hitch delivered. Just installed the hitch in about three hours. Good instructions. Had a tough time getting the hitch/bumper on ... found that putting one screw on with a wrench works well. The electrical plug that had to be disconnected was much easier with the connector removed from the car (i.e. remove connector from hook on car and then disconnect by pressing on the connector). Had problem putting bumper back on due to self induced issues like sure that the bumper bottom is aligned. Had to cut the bumper a little bit to fit the hitch. Hitch seems to be well constructed as far as I can tell. Will update this review if any issues using it with my bike rack.

2020 Honda Accord

The trailer hitch was easy to install. The video was very helpful. It does fit the 2020 Accord hybrid with no drilling on the body or cutting of the muffler heat shield, and only a small relief cut on the bumper fascia to clear the receiver.
The bike rack appears well made. I may need a riser adapter for ground clearance as even the hitch drags coming out of my driveway. I bought this rack for the built in ramp. It makes loading and unloading much easier for us old guys.


This was easy to install. It took about an hour start to finish on my 2019 Honda Accord. It has worked well. With the ball mount off it isn't noticeable at all.

(The wiring harness for trailer lighting took a lot longer to install, but is not part of this hardware review.)

2018 Honda Accord

Simple install even with removing the rear bumper. Between this model and the Curt, this one required no drilling. Though trimming is involved when re-installing the rear bumper.

2019 Honda Accord

The product is excellent and what really made the whole experience excellent was etrailer's installation video, which is all I needed in addition to having all the right tools to make it as easy as possible to install. I did have to trim 1/2" off the bumper panel where it was touching the receiver hitch so that the holes lined up to replace the push pin fasteners underneath the trunk but it was no big deal. If you are intimidated by the install, don't be, but gather the appropriate tools before you start to avoid frustration. An offset screwdriver tool or attachment would be very helpful to get the screws out of the rear wheel wells. I have the Skewdriver Pro SPK4042 and love having it in my tool arsenal. I'm excited to use my bike rack on this tow hitch receiver!

After a year, I am still loving having installed this trailer hitch. I use an a Brophy Hitch Adapter to carry my 1UP USA 2-bike carrier and I totally recommend this combo!
Frederickquirante - 05/11/2021


Just had my hitch installed today fits great. Enough clearance for my one up bicycle rack


Installation took about a hour. Make sure you tighten the bolts right and left sides evenly. I cranked the left side completely down first by specs and when applying the bumper back on the right side was slightly tighter. At least thats my opinion.... thank you

2018 Honda Accord

Perfect fit on a 2018 Honda Accord V6 2.0L Turbo. After conversations with the Honda dealership and an official letter to Honda corporate, I was surprised to hear that there was not an officially recommended trailer hitch receiver for this new vehicle. Based on the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver's installation information, no new holes needed to be drilled and there was a possibility that a small section of the heat shield would need to be cut away. To my delight, no cutting of the heat shield was required. I purchased the hitch through and had my trusted local U-Haul supplier install the hitch and I am 100% satisfied. I have written a follow-up letter to Honda corporate about this successful purchase from so that Honda may also recommend this solution to other 2018 Accord owners.

Still working perfectly.
Gail D - 11/20/2019

2022 Honda Accord

Staff was very helpful. Shipment got lost in transit through no fault of etrailers and their staff rectified the situation immediately. Would certainly buy from them again.


Hitch came with several dings and scratches but I honestly could not deal with waiting for a second hitch to be delivered to me. But this review is based on how the product is doing, I’ve had it on for 3 months. And use it daily and I have no complaints on how to works, my only complaint is how I received the product, dinged and scratched. It seemed as it was a used product and just shipped to me. Maybe someone returned it. Who knows.


Installation was straightforward and included video directions were great. Working out well for specifically 2 bike platform rack. Honda Accord 2018

2018 Honda Accord

Wow, just wow...etrailer...... just go with them... you will not be disappointed. Trust me you....
