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. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

2005 Pontiac Bonneville

Installed on a 2005 Bonneville GXP. Car has dual exhaust out the rear. Had to lower both mufflers and also release the center exhaust pipe hanger to get enough room to swing the mufflers to the side to be able to drill the 2 additional holes. Install went very easy and I did it with the rear of the car on ramps by myself in about 90 minutes. Watch the video a couple of times to avoid my mistake of installing the new rear muffler hangers upside down which was an easy fix (pipes were hanging too low). Once I swung the brackets around so the ears were facing up towards the trunk floor, the pipes were back in their original position (which was in the video) and the job was done. Don't forget to get the wire spring to feed the bolt and backer bracket into the frame rail. These worked like a charm. Plan on towing a small trailer (5x8) with the car since my last car (93 Bonneville) was clobbered while parked and I needed another car to tow with and the car didn't have a hitch on it when I bought it.

Hitch was great, the car, not so much......used lemon..

2005 Pontiac Bonneville

Purchased the hitch assembly for an 05 Pontiac Bonneville GXP...... shipped same day as ordered (or next day, but very quickly) and arrived 2nd day. The day it arrives, I get a message from etrailer telling me that it arrived AND "here are some helpful install videos that might help". The videos were exactly what I ordered on a similar car. They gave me hints on how to make the install easy (how to lower the mufflers and support while installing) and demonstrated the benefit of the Fish Wire (a $x life saver). Applied to my installation in every way. Everything went just as they demonstrated. Install was easy because I knew what to expect (thanks to the videos). Very satisfied. Good quality product, easy to order, EXCELLENT support. thank you !

Hitch works as it should. Install it and use. However it took two tries. Manuf issue from Draw Tite, the receiver was turned slightly when welded onto the cross frame. Not noticeable when installing a simple draw bar, but when installing a 3 ft tall bike rack, it was clearly off. Measured at 3 from vertical. Took a few calls and approval from Draw Tite to send a replacement, but all done with minimal additional pain. these guys definitely stand behind their products ! Will continue to buy from etrailer and recommend others do the same.


The delivery was super fast. The installation was easy. I am very happy with the appearance. This is my third Hidden Hitch so I knew the hitch but the guest time I've used this company. The company was great to work with. I had one little glitch but that was my error. I superimposed two numbers on my zip code and so the Debit card was declined. They contacted me immediately and do the problem was quickly resolved. I most definitely recommend this company and Hidden Hitch. Oh, this Hitch was for a Buick, so appearance was of upmost importance.

Thank you for your business, review, and brand loyalty, Jerry,! Hidden Hitch has now been replaced with Draw-Tite, and is the exact same hitch.


Great to work with.


I called etrailer to make sure I was getting the right hitch. It was sent out the same day and got it on day 2. The installation was a piece of cake. There installation videos are a big help. I knew just what to expect with no surprises.
I also ordered the 1/2" Bolt Leader used to fishwire bolts through the frame of vehicles. one nifty tool for only 95 cents. I would definitely buy from them again. Highly recommended.

2009 Buick Lucerne

The trailer hitch for my 2009 Lucerne fit perfectly. The installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. The installation went smoothly with no surprises. I am ecstatic that it went so well. I would surely come back to etrailer for any trailer needs. Thanks!!!


This product came to us fast, and it was actually the correct hitch for our 2009 Buick CX! After two Part Store orders coming in that were incorrect, plus our own attempt to order the hitch through a popular website, which also was incorrect, we searched the internet and found etrailer. We found the hitch, and the etrailer website determined it was the correct trailer hitch (via a green ! ). We were right to be excited and wow!!, it is fun!! to receive the correct trailer hitch!!!! Thank you etrailer!

2001 Buick LeSabre

Review of Item 36309 - eTrailer: Excellent - Draw-Tite Hitch: Excellent
- Instructions: Good to very good: there was some sort of
electronic box (anti-lock controller?) blocking one of the frame
rail access holes. I had to make my own. But, got it done.

One suggestion: eTrailer should throw-in a bolt leader/fish wire at no extra cost as I didn't realize I needed one and struggled without it.


I got a hitch for my 2007 Buick it installed quick and easy. I also ordered the wiring kit too. All parts came very quickly neatly packed with no damage to anything. The hitch installed just like the installation video showed. Very simple to do. The wiring harness also installed very easily. I'd like to thank, Brad E., George J., and Katie H., for a great on-line shopping experiance.


I won't be able to put the hitch on for a few days, but this review covers 3 basic things. First, the acknowledgement via email that the hitch was being shipped came quickly. Second, the hitch arrived within a couple or 3 days of the acknowledgement. Third, the hitch is pretty robust. I am impressed with all three of these things. The order was completed and arrived in a quick and efficient manner, no hassles. And the quality of the hitch is great! 5 stars!

2006 Buick Lucerne

I was surprised at how well this hitch went onto my car. The only real tricky part was fishing the bolts into the frame. Other than that, it went great. I can't say enough at how helpful the service department was at etrailer. Carol was great!! Plus the YouTube videos really helped. Etrailer will be my first place to look for any future towing needs.


I ordered this hitch on a Wednesday, it shipped that same day and arrived at my door on Friday. Unbelievable fast service. The installation instructions were very detailed and easy to follow. The installation of the hitch was a snap.

2002 Buick LeSabre

Shipped quickly, installed easily. . . and as indicated by installation video.

5 stars for eTrailer.

2001 Buick LeSabre

Just arrived. Took hitch out of box. Looking good. As soon as the weather gets more pleasing to the body. I will be installing it..
I see no problems in installing it. Installing a hitch isn't rocket science..
Service was great.


Great quality trailer hitch. Pretty easy to install. Very dependable. Does its job very well. Very impressed


I couldn't believe how quickly my order was shipped; less than 2 days! The hitch fit perfectly & the instructions were very good. Draw-Tite's website installation video was very helpful, as well.


GOT IT THIS AFTERNOON, MY NEIGHBOR AND I JUST ATTACHED IT TO MY CAR, WAS REAL EASY.Now I have to go get a stove with my trailer. excellent product, and the best price I could find, thanks,'

2005 Buick LeSabre

Product arrived on time and when opening up the box I could not believe how heavy duty and well built it was. Very easy to install as well. Could not be anymore satisfied I highly recommend.

2004 Buick LeSabre

Hitch: good quality, easy to install, good value for the money

Randy R.


Good. Easy to put on and looks good on the car.


The fit and finish of this product is outstanding! I would be interested, though, in watching someone do this install in the recommended allotment of time. It took me quite a bit longer!

2007 Buick Lucerne

Just what we were looking for to assist our light tow need, and it arrived very quickly.
The tutorial video is very informative and helpful.
How refreshing to speak to a real person and not a scam like other online sites we have experienced.


Everything I needed, mechanic installed it in about an hour.

  • Ground Clearance of a 2004 Buick LeSabre with a Draw Tite Hitch Installed
    I don't have an exact figure I can give you, but I can help you determine a close approximation of what the ground clearance your 2004 Buick LeSabre will have after the Draw Tite hitch part # 36309 is installed. First, your current exhaust will actually hang lower than the hitch opening, if you check out the picture I attached you will see this. The hitch opening will sit right below the rear bumper. So basically if you measure from the rear fascia to the ground on your vehicle and then...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2006 Buick Lucerne
    For your 2006 Buick Lucurne, there are a few trailer hitch options. All of the available hitches are custom fit and compatible with all models and wheel sizes of your vehicle. I recommend the Draw-Tite Class II # 36309 as its install time is a bit shorter than the others. I have included an installation video on a 2006 Buick Lucerne for you to check out.

  • Is There a Class III 2 inch Trailer Hitch for a 2001 Buick LeSabre
    I have a solution for you, but we do not carry any Class III 2 inch trailer hitches for your 2001 Buick LeSabre. We do have the Draw-Tite Class II receiver, part # 36309, that fits your Buick. It does have a 1-1/4 inch receiver, but you can change it to a 2 inch receiver by using an adapter like part # HTAD. Even though an adapter will allow you to carry accessories that have a 2 inch shank, keep in mind that anytime you use an adapter that it reduces your Tongue Weight capacity by 50 percent.

  • Replacement Hardware for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on 2003 Buick LeSabre
    We do have installation hardware available for the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36309. What you need is the Replacement Hardware Kit for Trailer Hitches # RHK. In this case you will enter 36309 in the "Hitch Item Number" field and then choose Draw-Tite under "Manufacturer." I attached an installation video for your reference.

  • Replacement Hitch Install Hardware for a 2000 Buick LeSabre
    We can help you, but you will need to know what hitch manufacturer made the hitch you have and what part number it is. The part number you will need is # RHK. If for example you had the Draw Tite Hitch part # 36309 you would need to enter the part number 36309 on the product page and then select Draw Tite from the drop down menu and we will ship you out the correct hardware kit. I attached an install video for you to check out as well for this hitch on a similar LeSabre as yours.

  • Does the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver 36309 Come with a Bolt Leader

  • Do I Modify My Auto Level Housing to Install a Draw-Tite Hitch # 36309 on my 2000 Buick Le Sabre
    In order to install this Draw-Tite Receiver Hitch, part # 36309, you will need to remove the rearmost fastener which secures the load leveling control housing to the frame rail and discard it. You will then trim the load leveling control housing around where the previously removed fastener was. See the picture to the right for further clarification. Some other items you may need: Draw Bar # 36063 Ball # 19258 or 19256 Trailer Wiring # 119176KIT

If you have a Special or Super model, hitch # 36502 will fit. For a different model 2008 Buick Lucerne the comparable Draw-Tite hitch is # 36309.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe and 2008 Ford Taurus
    There are hitches available that would fit either your 2011 Hyundai Santa fe or 2008 Ford Taurus, but the Draw Tite Hitch part # 36309 that you referenced will not fit either. For your Santa Fe you would want the Draw-Tite part # 75684. For trailer wiring you would want the part # 118415. For your Taurus you would want the Draw-Tite part # 75299.

We do not have a hitch for the 2000 LeSabre that has a 2 inch hitch receiver. If you are looking to do some light towing, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class II Frame Receiver Hitch # 36309.

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack For a 2004 Buick LeSabre
    Though there are some manufacturers that make a 4-bike trunk mount, none of the manufacturers we carry make one. Having 4-Bikes on a trunk mount rack is a little on the extreme side and could be potentially dangerous and would put a lot of stress on the mounting points on the vehicle. The most bikes I recommend carrying on a truck mount is 3. I recommend the Thule OutWay 3, # TH56BV. I own this rack myself and it is by far the easiest rack to install/remove that I have ever used.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2000 Pontiac Bonneville
    The Curt # C13900 multi-fit hitch is a fit for full sized trucks and SUV's as well as some compact trucks and vans, and therefore wouldn't be a good fit for your 2000 Pontiac Bonneville. I'd recommend going with a custom fit hitch like part # C12044 which is a fit for all 2000 Pontiac Bonneville models except for the SLE. If you have a SLE model, use the Draw-Tite # 36309 hitch. If you'll be using the hitch for light duty towing, you'll also need a ball mount like # 36063. For a trailer...

  • Parts Needed to Carry a Motorized Chair with a 2005 Buick LeSabre
    Out of the available trailer hitch receiver options for your 2005 Buick LeSabre I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36309 which is a Class II with a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver. It does have a Tongue Weight (TW) rating of 300 lbs but you will be limited by the maximum TW rating of your LeSabre. I looked at the online version of your owner's manual and it stated that the max weight capacity of a trailer that your LeSabre can haul is 1,000 lbs and that the TW should...
