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.

The Hitch was exactly as advertised and literally took 30 minutes to install. My steps were a little different than the instructions: I cleaned each pre-tapped hole on the vehicle using corrosion prevention spray and a used tooth brush. I slid the bar under the SUV using the box as a support to prevent scratches, lifted one end and supported using jackstand and then the other end. I used threadlocker on each bolt, and hand-tightened three bolts on one side, then the other. Using a 7/8 socket, tightened each bolt a little bit at a time to prevent seizing. Some seizing did happen on one of the bolts as the bolt was pushing the support plate against the frame of the car; lots of torque and a few rotations at a time will tighten the gap. 224631

Did you have to remove the spare tire to do the installation?

The instructions specify to remove the spare for installation and re-install afterward. Some folks find it's easier to lower it but not take it all the way off, but when we installed the hitch in our shops, we found there was no need to remove the spare. Check out the video.

Very easy to install and it did not require me to remove the spare tire even though the instructions say to. The hitch looks great because it doesn't look like an aftermarket product. Very hidden in the view from the rear of the car and the quality looks top notch. I'm using it mostly for bike racks but should I need electrical I will definately order that as well from you. 228922


Comments
All is well and it works great. Had electrical hooked up by [...] last month to tow a trailer and it worked great. I use it mainly for hauling my bikes around with a bike rack so it was a good test to haul wood with a 16 foot trailer as well.

This is my second hitch from etrailer. The first one was for my 2010 Acura MDX and now this one is for my 2018 Acura MDX. My use for this hitch is to attach my bike rack. I am pleased with the quality of the hitch and the amount of money I saved by not getting one from the dealer. I would admit, I like the dealer integrated looks but not for the amount of money they want for it. On both occasions, I had Uhaul installed it for me. Today's installation charge was $35 NYC area. If I had tools and a way to raise my car up a little bit, I could have done this myself. It's very quick and simple installation process watch the video. Here are a few pics of the finish product 484158

Saved $200 by doing this myself. I was a little concerned about the negative feedback about the shipping boxes being destroy upon delivery. But as you can see, it came intact and was delivered promptly to my front door. This installation was very easy. I watched the video for both the trailer hitch and wiring harness and it was exactly like the video indicated. I will tell you on the wiring harness you do not have to pull the panel back. Just get a mirror and locate the connector behind the panel and you can pull it down to the opening. 465223

Very well made! Delivery was fast. I received it within three days of ordering. The box was a bit damaged and a small area of the hitch itself was chipped as you can see from my photo. I planned on installing it myself, but wasn’t able to turn the bolts with my hand socket. At first I thought I was given the wrong size bolts, but double checked the size at my local hardware store. I then cleaned the threads underneath the truck with a wire brush and was able to get the bolts started, but still unable to tighten by hand. Since I didn’t have an impact driver I took it to my local mechanic, John, who graciously installed it for me in no time. But, John had to permanently remove the center trim piece of my bumper for it to fit, which I wasn’t aware of when I purchased. I don’t remember any of the videos I watched from the website mention that. Now that the trim piece is missing the look isn’t as clean as I expected. So far I’m satisfied with the product, but disappointed in the aesthetics. I’ve attached some pics for your convenience. 779182

As I recently purchased an 18 Honda Pilot EX-L, I was contemplating just having the dealer do the install on an OEM hitch. At well over $1000, I knew that I could save hundreds with a hitch from E Trailer. I only use my hitch to carry my bikes on a Thule platform rack, but with thousands of miles of use with three different cars, I have become spoiled to the ease of loading and unloading my bikes with the platform rack. This is the 4th Draw-Tite Hitch that I have ordered from etrailier.com over the past 6 years. Hands down, by far the easiest to install. I think it took me longer to unpacked the hitch that actually tighten down the 6 bolts. With the spare tire removed, there was plenty of room. I used my floor jack to raise the hitch up to a level that I could hold the hitch while starting one bolt by hand.I then tightened the other two and moved to the other side. I finished by using a torque wrench to tighten all six bolts to specs. As always, the videos are very detailed, and the customer service is top notch. I spent a couple extra dollars for upgraded shipping and it paid off, the hitch was at my door step a few days after I ordered it. Great job E- Trailer! 486575

I am very happy with the results from the trailer hitch and wiring harness I purchased from etrailer.com. Installation was very easy and I saved $800.00 from a dealer install. Thanks. 557893

I am very happy with the results on my trailer hitch. Everything is working as it should, but I would have preferred a hitch that was more like Hondas and integrated into the bumper for a cleaner look. But no regrets.

Hitch was well packaged. The box arrived with some tears but no damage, nicks or scrapes to the hitch. My car is not garaged so there was a good amount of rust buildup in the factory drilled bolt holes. The Magic to get all that gunk out was WD-40 rust release penetrate spray and a 1/2” wire fitting brush hardware stores have them in the plumbing section Once rust was cleaned out installation took about 25 minutes. I installed the hitch solo. Getting the specified torque on the bolts was a workout ! I used 2 Eddie Bauer hanging dome lights to I’ve me great visibility workkng. They are my go to lights. About 10 bucks a piece on-line. 469552

Built as solid as I could have hoped for. I like the built in look of the Honda hitch but not the dealer price tag. It came quickly on the day they anticipated and I installed it in about 25 minutes with 1 extra set of hands. I did have to remove the spare, and I’m not sure how some people don’t but that wasn’t a big issue. The only 1 thing I am not 100% satisfied with is that (look at the picture) the molding on the back of the car rests very lightly on the top of the hitch receiver. You can see that it ever so slightly goes up in the middle now. I would have liked it not to actually touch. I’m not sure if it was manufactured a quarter inch too short or if our molding was a qtr in too low but that’s my one gripe. I do still like it and am happy with how solid it feels and how easily it went on. 704288

Easy bolt on! Let spare down a little to give wiggle room to line up bolts - nuts are pre placed by Honda. The hardest part was torquing the bolts to specs listed. I bought this hitch specifically for the wiring mount pad - great for 7 wire w/brakes. Put it all in, included the brake control in about an hour and a half. Pulls a 3500# trailer like a champ! 400047

Website was GREAT---easy to use, plenty of information. Shipped quickly and arrived in 4 days. Would be very easy to install, but 5 of the 6 nuts on my car's frame needed to be re-tapped and I also didn't have a torque wrench so had local shop do it. Couldn't be happier with how easy it was to choose the hitch and all the information needed to install. 940303

Detailed description, advice, and clear installation videos were so helpful! Perfect fit for 2018 Pilot, love the mostly hidden look. Didn't need a lift or ramp; helper and I were able to lift into place. Used brass-bristle brush and lots of WD-40 to really scour the crud and rust out of the weld nuts on the vehicle frame (nylon brush didn't quite do the trick, and the threads really do need to be clean or else the bolts stick) - bolts are fine-threaded so it takes a little patience to get them in then wrench them in by hand, but great installation. Highly recommend! 909667

2020 Honda Pilot

I have a Honda 2020 Pilot. This took me about an hour to install - I am not a mechanic. Admittedly, about 15 minutes was spent looking for my tools. Came in a large box. Not sure how else to ship this thing, although I think styrofoam would be a good fit for this thing. Came very fast, and everything I need was there. Some instalation tips: 1. If doing this yourself, you absolutely MUST watch the installation video. Twice. 2. You MUST lower the spare. I was hoping I could get away without doing that, but no. You have to lower it. 3. Try screwing in the bolts BEFORE you do anything - this just gets you used to the angle you need to screw them in. 4. If doing this yourself, you'll find a mil crate or something like it helpful to hold one side up high enough for you to start one bolt to hold it. 5. On the 2020 Pilot, the bolts seem to be hard, then there seemed to be nothing - the bolts were sliding up and down. I thought I was screwed (pun intended), but I just kept tightening them and eventually they grabbed. I used a socket set - not a drill. After installation, I stood on the hitch (I weight 200 lbs) and it didn't budge. Overall, I'm very happy and satisfied. I would definitely buy from them again (and will most likely do so once I need the wiring harness). BTW - the garage down the street wanted $200 to install it for me......it really can be done by one person - just take your time and dry fit before you start. 894055

  • Does a Hitch Effect the Hands Free Lift Gate Operation for 2020 Honda Pilot
    The hitches for your 2020 Honda Pilot will not negate the function of your hands free lift gate.

  • Trailer Hitch Availability and Fit on 2016 Honda Pilot EX-L
    Both of the 2-inch Class III hitches we offer for your 2016 Honda Pilot, Curt # C13146 and Draw-Tite # 75225, mount so that their receiver tubes are located just below the rear bumper cover as shown in the two installation videos I linked for you. Both hitches are no-drill installations and both include all required installation hardware. Both will cost substantially less than a dealer-supplied hitch. I have also linked helpful articles with tips for easier hitch installation.

  • Trailer Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid
    Yes, you can use Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75225 on your 2017 Acura MDX hybrid. The hitch will fit with a full-size spare if the spare is the 18 inch but not if the spare is the available 19 or 20 inch. If you have a 19 or 20 inch full size spare in that area (which being a hybrid I am not sure if the spare is in the same place as gas models) then the spare would have to be relocated if it interferes with the hitch installation. I don't know how many bikes you want to carry or if you...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2017 Honda Pilot without Factory Tow Package
    Yes, Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75225 will fit your 2017 Honda Pilot. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the...

  • Will Installing Draw-Tite 75225 Interfere With Spare Tire of 2015 Acura MDX
    The Draw-Tite Class III, part # 75225 would not interfere with installing/removing the temporary spare tire on a 2015 Acura MDX. The available hitches are compatible with the 18 inch full-size spare tire, but not the 19 or 20 inch spare tires. If you'll be using the hitch for towing, you might also need the following to complete your towing system: Trailer wiring harness with 4 pole trailer connector, part # 118628 Ball mount, part # 2923 2 inch trailer ball, part # 63845 1-7/8...

  • Carrying 6-8 Bikes for a Family of 6 with a 2016 Acura MDX
    To carry up to 8 bikes on your 2016 Acura MDX I recommend a combination trailer hitch mounted bike rack and roof mounted bike racks. Starting with a trailer hitch, Draw-Tite hitch # 75225 is an excellent choice. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver so it will be compatible with many bike racks. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. Then for a bike rack I recommend a model that can hold 5 bikes such as the Swagman XP, # S64970. This rack has a single arm...

  • Does Hitch Installation Affect Operation of Lift Gate Sensors on 2019 Honda Pilot Touring
    A vehicle like your 2019 Honda Pilot that has lift gate sensors has several of these positioned along the rear bumper. When an aftermarket hitch like # 75225 is installed it may block the center one but the other sensors will continue to function. In practical terms this just means you may need to swing your foot over to the side to trigger one of those other sensors for the lift gate. I linked the written instructions for Draw-Tite hitch # 75225 as well as a complete installation video.
