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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 Hyundai Genesis

Today on this 2009 Hyundai Genesis we are going to install part number 36486 from Draw-Tite. This is also going to apply to part number 90196 from Hidden Hitch. This is what the hitch looks like on the vehicle, we will give you some measurements. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground is going to be 9 inches on this particular vehicle and from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the bumper is going to be six inches. 00:23

To get started on this the first thing we need to do is lower the exhaust. There will be four rubber hangers that we need to remove in order to lower it. By the tail pipe and further up front there is another hanger here underneath the rear differential and this is going to be the same on both sides because of the dual exhaust and also we installed a strap to hold the exhaust to keep it from falling anymore than it has to when we lower it. So spray down the hangers with some lubricant and pry them off. The driver side is done and do the same thing for the passenger side. Now also if you lower the exhaust and you think you still do not have enough room to work with it might be a good idea to unbolt the mufflers from the exhaust. If your vehicle is in good shape it was not too much of a problem. 01:27

Next we need to remove the heat shield so we can trim it. There are six bolts that we need to remove here, here are the two at the bottom and there are four up above the muffler. Now we need to locate the access hole to install hardware into the frame. It is going to be covered up by this sticker. Just remove the sticker and we need to make the hole just a little bit bigger to install the hardware. We will get a quick test fit to see how much we need to trim it and it is probably going to be about 1/ 8 of an inch or so. We are going to have to enlarge this a little bit. One little trick to make the hole a little bigger is take an extension and deflect the metal a little bit to make the hole a little more oblong. You have just enough room to get your plate in there. We know where the hitch is going to install, it is going to install from this access hole and we are going to be making another drilled hole up further. We are going to hold the heat shield in place and make clearance for the frame so make a mark here and about here. The instructions tell you about a little under three inches and we will go back about seven inches. We will mark it out straight and then we will cut it out with tin snips. That looks like it gives pretty good access to the frame now so one more detail is we need to trim the little rubber stand off that is located right here. Just take the top of it off and it should be fine. Then we can reattach the hardware for the heat shield. 03:38

The first of the hardware is going to be this U-bolt and it is going to sit in between the muffler hanger here and there is a bar that comes from the bottom of the frame up and there is a piece on top. You want to thread through the two pieces. Do that on both sides and then we are going to lift the hitch in position. When we install the hitch we are going to install it using the U-bolts and it is a good idea at this point to use an extra set of hands to hold everything together. We are going to use the nuts to hold everything in place and then we will use the hitch as a template to drill a couple of holes. Now we will tighten those up finger tight, center the hitch on the frame and drill. When you line up with the hitch make sure that this hole here lines up with the access hole that is already in the frame. Get that centered and then you can drill out your hole. We will use a 1/ 2 inch drill bit to make the hole. Now you need to take the hitch back off so you can install the hardware. It will also be a good time to add some sealant to the bare metal that we drilled out on to keep it from corroding. Lets install the hardware. First we are going to install the hardware for this hole so take the bolt leader that came with the kit and take it and thread it through out to the access hole. Thread in the block and then take the bolt and thread it on and push that in as well and then pull it right back out. We are going to do the same thing for this hole here accept we are going to thread everything together first, put the bolt in first then the block and pull it right back through. With the driver side done lets do the same thing on the passenger side. Reinstall the hitch, we left the bolt leaders on. A neat little trick is if you have got multiple bolts to thread, leave the bolt leaders on and pull them through the hitch, that way if you knock the bolts back through the frame you can still pull them back out. We will use the U-bolt again to hold everything together. The U-bolts and the carriage bolts will get a nut and a conical tooth washer. With the driver side done lets make sure all of the hardware is installed on the passenger side. Now that we have got all of the hardware in lets snug down the bolts. After we have got everything snugged down we will torque them down as specified in the instructions. When you snug down the U-bolts make sure that you end up with the same amount of threads on each half. The hitch is fully installed, lets reinstall the exhaust. With the exhaust reattached we are finished with the install and there you have it for part number 36486.

Order came quickly, package was a bit banged up, but parts there. Easier to install than expected. Receiver fit is very precise, even grains of sand should be cleared out before installing.

Hitch is holding up well after one year. Impressed by ruggedness and durability.

Exactly as expected.

2010 Hyundai Genesis

I had this installed by a local shop. It took him about 1 hour 20 minutes. I could have done it myself but to remove the mufflers (which it really needs in my opinion) the car needs to be raised on a lift. Towed a light sailboat 450 miles with no problem using the recommended T-connector wiring harness. That took all of 10 minutes to install with no splicing. I would warn Genesis sedan owners that you have to be careful on sharp ramps as it can bump off ground if you bounce into one too fast-just take it slow and easy. Service was excellent and delivery to Memphis area was only a few days.
Satisfied customer and would recommend this company.

Really interested in some other questions - I own 2015 Genesis Sedan and want to know about clearance to ground - is that a problem - can the hitch be removed easily
-- comment by: Ed D - 07/25/2015
I have had a few bumps pulling into parking lots with sharp ramps. You need to take those slow. As far as removal goes, I think it would be easy enough as all the hard to get to places above the muffler have already been addressed on the installation. Its probably not something you would want to do very often though.

I am very pleased with the product and service. Well built.
It is getting harder to find an honest company that stands behind its product in today's world. keep up the excellent work and don't get woke, as I cancel my purchases from such so call politically correct companies. thank you.


Everything works well...thank you

Hyundai Genesis

Originally I was going to install the hitch myself with help from a friend. But after reading the instructions and coupled with the fact that I am 76 years old I decided to have the hitch professionally installed. I had it installed by a company that sells and installs hitches. It took him 2 hours and he charged me $80. I will only be using the hitch for my bike rack so wiring was not needed. The hitch looks fine on my Genesis and so far I am very pleased.

2013 Hyundai Genesis

I received my hitch with 1 week. I was happy with the price & the quality. I installed the hitch myself in an afternoon. I will buy from this company again.

Did you have to remove the mufflers? Did you have the car raised on a rack or just ramp height? ThanksSteephen
-- comment by: Stephen B - 05/16/2015
Yes, I removed the mufflers. I backed the car up onto ramps. That gave me enough room to do the entire install.
-- comment by: Frank H - 05/27/2015


The hitch arrived with chipped paint on the lower edges but overall was in very good shape.

  • Hitch Installation Time On 2011 Hyundai Genesis
    The installation time on your 2011 Hyundai Genesis for the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 36486 we have listed for this hitch is based on using an experienced installer and in a shop where conditions are more ideal for installing. For our installers the estimated installation time is between 1 and 1-1/2 hours. For a person who may not be as experienced at installations I would estimate the installation time to be approximately double, so I would say around 2-1/2 to 3 hours. There is...

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch part # 36486 Interfere with Back Up Camera View
    The Draw Tite hitch part # 36486 sits low enough that it would not interfere with the view of any back up cameras. The backup camera of your vehicle would be much higher and the hitch would not be in the monitor display at all.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    We do carry one trailer hitch that will fit the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, but # 36486 will not fit. Instead, take a look at Curt Trailer Hitch # C11086. This hitch is listed as a fit for the coupe models. I have included a link to the installation details for you to view.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2009 Hyundai Genesis Sedan
    The Class III and IV trailer hitches are designed for higher capacity, larger vehicles like SUVs and trucks that have higher towing capacities. The hitches we have for your 2009 Hyundai Genesis are lower in capacity like the Draw Tite Class II part # 36486 which has a 300 lb tongue weight capacity. Best option would be to go with a small trailer if this is the only tow vehicle you have. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. You'll want to check your owners...
