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.

This hitch is perfect for my Kuat bike rack. The finish is very high quality, installation was easy, and it looks great on the vehicle. It tucks up in the body perfect.


Comments
This hitch has been excellent, and my Kuat rack too, hard to beat this combo!

Great hitch. Spend a few extra bucks and have a mechanic install. It's not a hard installation, but installation while your vehicle is up on a car lift makes it a whole lot easier.


Comments
Been a year and still love it.

Excellent! I could not be more pleased. The hitch arrived quickly and was well-packed. Installation was a breeze. The installation video was spot-on accurate and helpful. All the parts and instructions needed were present. The wires for threading the bolt and metal part into the bumper were exactly the right length -simple, fast and easy to do.

The receiver hitch itself appears to be very well made.

Even though the vehicle looks fine with the little hitch trim door removed, the instructions included details on how to cut the little hitch trim door to fit around the hitch. I did it and put the little trim door back on - wow! It looks great - an unexpected bonus.

Thank you to the folks at etrailer. I am a very pleased customer!

You have terrific customer service—about to buy another hitch from you now—after the Chevy dealer quoted my girlfriend $650 for a $140 hitch. You guys are the best!

I bought this hitch in order to use a hitch-mount bike rack. It was pretty easy to install. I used some ramps to get more ground clearance for installation and had help from a friend. it is a clean looking unit, nothing ugly sticking out. The installation video was very helpful to watch before we did it.


Comments
Works great! Still solidly mounted and gets plenty of use.

I'm very happy with the purchase and will, hopefully be able to use it much more often this summer!And my husband had no complaints while installing it.
Thanm you very much for your inquiry!!

Totally satisfied with the hitch. It fits well - matched right up to pre-drilled holes in the Chevy Equinox, reasonably close to the bumper so it is not excessively exposed but still easy to use and so forth. It seems to be durable it is not getting rusty quickly, etc. It was, however, more difficult to install than described. This is because the convenient nuts which are welded onto the unibody frame from the factory get somewhat corroded over time. So, if you are installing on a vehicle that is more than a couple years old you will probably have to clean the threads with a tap before installing, or else the installation is very difficult.

Very pleased with the Drawtite hitch and alternate wiring harness I ordered for our 2011 Equinox. The hitch install took less than fifty minutes and I was pleased that everything lined up and bolted together with no difficulties. The wiring harness installed in less than 10 minutes. Reviewing the Video's on your web site were a huge help when it came to the wire harness. By ordering everything from your company saved us 400.00 from a dealer install.

installed this Hitch (#36408) on my 2011 GMC Terrain the next day (7/6/11) and all went very well except that I had to bend the passenger-side upright support about one inch outward, in order to fit in place and bolt in.
The hitch may have been dropped on that side during shipping and was sticking out from the carton, but I was able to straighten it out to fit...all is perfect!

Great Hitch. My wife and I purchased this hitch specifically for mounting a bike rack on our 2012 Chevy Equinox 2LT. I ordered it Aug 9th and received it Aug 11th via 2 day shipping. There are six easy bolts that were extremely easy to install. The hardest part was holding it up. Strongly recommend you install with a partner so there's no chance of stripping or breaking bolts from stress. Some models do not already have all the holes needed but there is extra hardware for this. Fortunately ours was equipped with all 6 holes and I installed it in about 25 minutes with my wife's assistance. It's very stable and neat. Also, ensure you do it right and torque it within. Very happy with this purchase.



by:

Hitch installed perfectly! No issues what so ever. I don't know who invented the wiring harness but they are a genius! I've never wired up a car so easily. It literally took me maybe 10 minutes start to finish.

2013 Chevrolet Equinox

Installation was a Breeze, no help, completed myself. Product ultra durable, easy to install, looks great. Pleased with how everything lined up well. Pull wire to feed block and bolt through bumper frame needs to be 6" longer. Only complaint. Used a coat hanger to add length. Would recommend if you want a hitch...and don't want to get ripped off at a dealer.

Fit was perfect received my order 2 days before expected delivery fair price and prompt shipping easy installation



by:
2013 Chevrolet Equinox

On time delivery. Concern as to package condition upon receipt alleviated as all parts were accounted for and in operational condition. Installation was easier after watching videos from website. Printed instructions not very clear. All in all an excellent product at a very good price. Thank you.

Easy to install.. Works great for my thule t2 bike rack.

Needed an M12 x 1.75 tap to clean out the rusty nuts welded on the Equinox. After that, install was a breeze. Hitch looks great!



by:

I bought this hitch to hold my bike rack. It was pretty simple to install, instructions were good and easy to follow and it fits and works as I had hoped. This is my 2nd hitch from etrailers and I've been very pleased with both purchases.



by:
2012 Chevrolet Equinox

The hitch and wiring look great and the price was great. The only thing is a need to find out tape size is for bolts to clean the treads in the frame. If you know what size tap let me now other wise I will try and find out tomorrow.when I get it done will try and send another review


Comments
The installation instruction, That I have linked, call out the bolts that go into the weld nuts on your Equinox as M12 bolts, and we do have a an M12 tap and drill bit kit for 12mm x1.25 drill bit. It is available as part # PTW8662
12 mm x 1.25 Tap and Drill Bit

2013 GMC Terrain

I purchased the Draw-tite for my 2013 Terrain to use with a small trailer for yard work etc. I was surprised how quick the part showed up and the free shipping was great. I watched the video on installing it which helps. They indicated using a round wire brush to clean out the weldnuts and this is a must, especially if you live in the North. I spent time cleaning them and sprayed some oil in them and then ran a bolt in each nut to make sure the bolts would go in easily when I started the final ass'y. I used a floor jack to hold the hitch in place while I put in the four side bolts. I then pulled it out and installed the center bolts. I didn't tighten the bolts until I had all 6 in place. The product looks great on the SUV, it's tucked under the bumper so all you see is the receiver for the ball & drawbar.


Comments
I was surprised to get your follow up on the Draw-Tite hitch. Im still very satisfied with the product and have recommended it to others.

This is a great hitch. Many hitches on vehicles stick out like a sore thumb. Not this one. Once installed, you don't even notice it. And zero chance of banging your leg into it. Since this was installed on a 2015 Terrain with over 90k on it and was subject to winter road chemicals, I used a 3/8" wire brush to clean out the weld nuts. I didn't think a nylon brush would do the trick.



by:
2017 GMC Terrain

We needed a hitch for our new 2017 Terrain to haul our bike carrier and maybe a small boat. Searched and found the best price at etrailer. Great looking hitch and perfect fit. Less than an hour to install and am very pleased with my purchase.

2017 Chevrolet Equinox

I absolutely love dealing with etrailer.com. The hitch I purchased for my wife's new (to her) 2017 Chevy Equinox came a day earlier than estimated by etrailer. I had it installed the same day. The only problem I encountered was trying to thread the nuts on the center bolts in the bumper. My hands didn't seem to fit, and I had a devil of a time trying to thread them on, all the while fearing I would push the bolts back up into the bumper and lose them. I love how the hitch fits up under the vehicle, almost out of sight.
This is the third hitch I have purchased from etrailer and have yet to be disappointed. I would recommend the products they carry and their service to anyone and everyone.


Comments
Unfortunately, the wife traded her Equinox back in March of 2020. So I technically cant comment on performance 1 year later. However,for the 10 months we used the hitch,it performed without a hitch. Definitely recommend e-trailer.com to anyone looking for towing products. 5 star customer service.

Received package sooner than I expected, which was great! It had all the items required for fast easy installation, and after seeing a you tube video on this, it took about 10 minutes to complete. Everything fit perfectly. Super happy with this product!



by:
2017 Chevrolet Equinox

Just purchase a new Equniox 2017, I had bids in at $400-$500 to get the hitch installed.

I decided to go with this purchase because of price and the video's which show me exactly how to do it.

One trailer place quoted me $100 to do the install of the wire harness ... it took me 20 minutes... that means he was charging me $300 an hour to do the electrical and then he wanted $10 per bolt to do the install of the hitch.

I forwarded them your Web site address and told them they should start doing business with you!

They Email me back thanking me for the information!

One year later... Everything works GREAT!
