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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 75560. Here's what our hitch will look like once it's installed. Next, we'll go ahead and give you a couple measurements to assist you in selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper is six inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is thirteen and a half inches. This will assist you in selecting accessories such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier.

We'll now go ahead with the installation. Before we lower the exhaust we're going to put a safety strap underneath so that after we remove the rubber isolators that hold the exhaust in place we can use the safety strap to safely lower the weight of the exhaust. Now with my safety strap in place we'll go ahead and point out the rubber isolators that will need to be removed. Starting here, in front of the rear axle, while it's not necessary, we're going to go ahead and remove it to give ourselves a little more working room. The four that are required to be removed, there are two on the inside, one for each muffler, and two on the outside for a total of four. To remove the rubber isolators from the metal hangers we're going to spray each one with a spray lubricant and then use a pry bar and pliers to remove it from the hanger. Now with the rubber isolators out of the way we'll go ahead and use our safety strap to safely bring down the weight of the exhaust.

Next, we'll need to remove one of the manufacturer's bolts. Here, the forward bolt, closest to the front of the vehicle, will need to be removed. This will then become the rear attachment point for our hitch. We'll need to do this on both sides. Keep in mind as we're removing our hardware and installing our hitch they're identical on each side so each process we do here on the driver's side will get repeated identically on the passenger's side.

Now we've exposed the rear attachment point, we'll go ahead and expose the forward attachment point by removing the rubber plug here at the middle of the heat shield. It exposes the weld nut built into the frame by the manufacturer. Now before we attempt to install the new hardware into the hole we're going to go ahead and clean it out. We'll use our spray lubricant and half inch nylon tube brush, part number 814092. Spray down the threads real good and then clean it out. Quick tech tip: To make sure your threads are cleaned out you can take one of the new fasteners, run it into the well nut to make sure it'll go in nice and easily.

Next, we need to determine how many blocks are needed, one or two, to compensate for the space of the bracket that's bolted to the rear attachment point and bumper. As you can see, if we install one block at the forward attachment point it'll be enough compensation and it'll bolt our hitch up evenly. Next, we're going to have a fifth attachment point, and this will be utilizing the manufacturers tow hook. Going down through the tow hook, it'll go through the hitch, where we'll install a half inch conkle tooth washer and nut. Keep in mind that the teeth of the washer will face the hitch. We're now ready to put our hitch in place. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install the tow hook hardware to hold the hitch up in position. Now with our center attachment point hardware holding the hitch in place we'll go to our forward attachment point here at the frame, we'll slide the block between the hitch and our attachment point, then, using the new ten millimeter bolt and conkle tooth washer, again the teeth of the washer will face the hitch, we'll go through the hitch, through the block, and into the weld nut. We'll install each fastener finger tight until we have them all in place. Now with all our hardware installed we'll go ahead and tighten it down. Once we have all the fasteners tightened down we can go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now with our hitch tightened and torqued to specifications we can go ahead and re-install the exhaust. With our exhaust re-installed we're ready to hit the road. That'll complete our install of the Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 75560, on our 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon. .

Well it outlasted my car. I have a different car now, and I am in the market for a new hitch. I still have the one for my old car, but it wont fit the new one.

Sorry, no pictures. I like the hitch and harness so far, no problems with towing my utility trailer. The only thing I might mention is that the harness outside of the car is rather long (2 feet longer then what I need), but that's not a problem as I just wrap the excess around the hitch frame, and save it for if I ever need it longer for some reason. There wasn't room inside the car under the mat for the excess length. I still remember how easy it was to install the hitch, just bolted up the the existing bolt holes in the cars frame.

Positive experience!! I had the hitch in hand after 3 business days from ordering. The hitch had ripped through the box on the top and bottom of the box, but no damage to it. It still made for a fun box for my son to play in and be swung around in. Installation was about 1.5 hours from the time of opening the box to completing clean up. The hardest part was getting the exhaust hangers off without a pry bar; a little elbow grease got it done. A couple reviews noted needing to remove the stock mud flaps. I almost did this, but was able to bend them out of the way of the exhaust hangers when lowering the exhaust. I did not jack up the car either which made for an easier method of placing the hitch since I was working by myself. I just balanced it with my forearm while placing the nut/washer on the tow hook. The rear-most bolts were in fairly tight, but we're able to be freed- best to have an extention on the socket so not to ram one's hand on the spare tire well. The front bolt holes were clean under the plugs removed and easy to thread the new bolt through, this on a 7.5 year old car. I only needed 1 metal plate for the front bolts. I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly everything went from purchasing to receiving to the videos on the website to installation. Etrailer was a very positive experience through and through. I am pleased at how well (easily) this hitch installed. We now we can load up our bikes on back with a Yakima Ridgeback. The Yakima swing out bike racks will end up too close to the bumper with this hitch and I believe the Hidden Hitch. Someday will may even pull a light trailer Thank you etrailer. Well done. 181729

Comments

After a year of use pulling my utility trailers and 800 lb four wheeler im happy to report this hitch has been everything I hoped it would be. The only thing I would have done differently would have been to purchase a trailer light wiring harness and installed it the same time as the hitch. Thanks etrailer!

Installation was as quick as described. However, there was some amount of work to remove the mud guards in order to drop the muffler system. Removal took some work since 3 different fasteners were used. I was working at home alone using a set of ramps to access the rear of the car, and it took some work to: 1. lift the hitch assembly into place. Hint, lift one side and loosely fit a bolt, then do the other side. and 2. lifting the muffler system into place required a set of straps attached to the roof rack and progressively raising each side. Maybe a younger person would find it easier, but it is either a two person job, or it requires some thought and experiment. 31601

great product, and great company. hitch arrived on time, with good visibility & tracking information provided. packed nicely. installation was super easy, thanks to the video. almost everything went exactly as described in the video, with the one exception being: one of the existing bolts you remove when installing the hitch, goes thru a frame pate that was off a little bit on my car. i had to loosen the other bolts on the plate, position it a little better and re-tighten it back up. otherwise, the bolt would have never gone in. easy to correct! very happy with the product and etrailer's customer service! 170673


Comments

i carry a couple of heavy downhill bikes on a rack that itself weighs about 40lbs on this hitch, so theres more than a 100lbs of otherwise unsupported weight.. after a year, the bolts were still nice and tight according to my torque wrench. paint is holding up. this is a solid product.

Thanks to good information from eTrailer, I was able to install my new hitch, alone, with tools from Autozone. I am a 49yo female small in stature. I had to think outside the box a bit for leverage, and especially remounting the muffler hangers. To remove the hangers, I ripped up an old t shirt, threaded it behind the rubber hanger, and pulled the hanger off the mount with all my might. It worked though. I used a single spacer on the front facing mount since there was a bracket of the same height closer to the bumper, as shown on the video. I think the job could have been done in an hour. Instead I had to trek back to the store early in the install for a 14mm socket to remove the bolt in the bracket on the car. I am happy with the install, and have mounted my Thule bike rack for next weeks camping excursion. Thank you eTrailer.com! 180727

2007 Subaru Outback Wagon I included some shots of the hitch from the rear showing the fit and clearance, which is good. It is recessed about 2 inches back from the bumper face. I would rather have it raised another inch closer to the bumper, but I am satisfied with it as is. It looks great and works great. Good experience all around. Good price, fast shipping, careful packaging, got the right items and the fit was good. I wrote for support and got a quick response that answered my questions exactly. These guys treated me right. 4801

I found the information on the etrailer site to be very informative and helpful. Found the install video to be "right on" except that I needed to drop both of my mufflers to get the hitch into position (2005 Subaru Outback LL Bean Edition 3.0). Other than that, the install went as described in the video, and very close to the estimated time. I've included a few pics. Very happy with the customer service from etrailer. Shipping was fast, communications regarding my order were excellent, and the product is a quality hitch exactly as described. Thank you! 32576

This is actually the second one of these I've installed. I helped a friend put one on his 06 Outback and it was really easy. So when I needed one for my 05 Outback I knew where to buy one. Super-simple installation and looks good too. 370929

Amazingly easy to install. It took me about forty minutes, working alone with the rear of the car on ramps. Most of that time was spent warming my hands as it was one of the coldest days of the year! The instructions and video were spot on. Everything lined up perfectly, no wiggling bolts around or re-drilling holes, it simply went on correctly first time. The staff at Etrailer were also fantastic, following up on the order and offering help (not that I needed it). Even the shipping was amazingly fast and everything arrived in perfect condition. Honestly, this was so easy to fit that my sister could have done it. A great product, a great price and great service - what more could you ask for? I will certainly come back to Etrailer if I need anything else connected with towing. Thanks guys! 118043

The hitch was aligned perfectly so once I dropped the mufflers it bolted right up with no problems. Looks solid! 123009

I have had no problems except it is a little lower then the factory install would be so my bike rack has rubbed once or twice. But it is the only way to get a 2 receiver hitch on the car to use with the better racks etc...

I bought this hitch for my 2009 Subaru Outback wagon in order to tow a small aluminum boat (14') and trailer. A coworker suggested etrailer.com and suggested the Class 3 hitch rather than the class 2 hitch. It is probably overkill for my needs, but I didn't care. Bigger is better. The etrailer.com website is great, with many photos and videos of the products, so I pretty much completely knew what I was getting into. And the site made selecting a compatible hitch a breeze. When the box arrived, I was a bit underwhelmed with the initial unwrapping of the hitch. The hitch looks great, but the bag of bolts and the instruction page(s) were taped to the end of the hitch making for a very unsightly and unprofessional presentation. The trailer hitch wiring kit I had bought was also in the box, and it too had several wraps of clear tape all around it... making me think that just maybe it was a returned item that they were reselling. The instruction sheet was also folded down to about 3"x4" and extremely wrinkled. My initial thoughts were that it had gotten wet, then dried and put into my box. With the poor packaging and since I have never purchased from etrailer, I was a tad bit concerned. The box itself was fine, in fact my cat LOVES it, but the rest left me wondering. The instructions were a bit cluttered stuffing them onto one side of a 8.5 x 11 piece of paper (in English) but they did come in French and Spanish too in case I was confused, and multilingual. Installation looked pretty straight forward, and since I have aftermarket mufflers which are much smaller than the originals (no they weren't for show or sound... the car is 9 years old, they rotted out and I wasn't going to pay for OEM mufflers) I didn't even have to remove the rubber isolators from the exhaust to drop it. Thanks Pete's Auto Parts in Schenectady NY! etrailer.com provides excellent videos to watch for my car, so once again I knew what to expect. However, the videos showed them using a car lift... how many DIYers have a lift? Or access to one? I used myself and a couple of stacked 4x4s to get the hitch in place. One thing nothing was mentioned about is that since my car is 9 years old and one of the rubber plugs on the "weld nut" (I learned what a weld nut is through this process, so that's good too) must have fallen off long long ago because the weld nut was quite rusted and I couldn't get the bolt into this hole. The other 3 were perfectly fine. I called etrailer.com (I was surprised that they were still there at almost 9 PM EST) and the woman I spoke with suggested I get an M10 x 1.25 tap and clean up the rust in the hole. She even went over their return policy in case I couldn't get the hole tapped and cleaned. But i got a tap and die set and it worked like a charm. I just finished the install and it went very smoothly, with the help of the 4x4s to hold it in place. The rust is obviously not etrailer's fault since i have an older car, however, they should consider mentioning in their videos that on older cars a thread chase or tap may be needed if things like this arise. And due to the configuration of the Subaru floor pan, the standard tap handle wouldn't work. I had to get creative and use some 1/4" extensions from my tool box to make it work, so this may have taken the installation out of the "easy" zone into the "medium" skills zone. I have not pulled the boat with it yet, but the hitch seems rock solid after torquing the bolts to spec and it looks great. I can't wait to take it out for a spin! I would love to have given 5 stars for quality, delivery speed, excellent website with videos and tons of photos, great knowledgeable tech support help and great price, but the initial packaging presentation and the hesitation it caused me forces me to knock one star off. Then I put in the wiring harness with the aid of the etrailer videos (I had to because the manufacture's instructions were worthless and garbage) and they got their 5th star back. 529549

This is not an amateur installation. I would rate it a 5 out of 10. First, on the 08 Subaru the mud guards are not easily removed and the outside muffler hanger must clear them in order to drop the exhaust low enough to install the hitch. After removing all the rubber hangers (4 muffler, 1 exhaust), tape up the muffler hanger and bend the plastic mud guard out of the way on each side as you're lowering the exhaust. I did the install laying on my back with the rear of the car on ramps. the tape keeps the mud guard from getting scratched as mine did. Drop the exhaust pretty low using the safety strap. The hitch is easily jockeyed up into place by cocking one side up then the other. Keeping it up, that's the trick. I used both my knees while laying on my back and then got the center bolt on the tow hook installed. Install the plate and bolt first then you just have to thread the nut on and it will support the hitch so the rest of the bolts can be installed without having to hold it. After the hitch is installed I had to jack the exhaust back up as it was way to heavy to hold up and install the rubber hangers. remember to bend the mud guards out of the way again on the way up with the exhaust. Lube the hanger rubbers again with WD-40 before you re-install. Total time under an hour. I'm using the tow hitch with a carrier for my snow blower 24" Toro. Test drove it and it works perfectly. No more shoveling at Dad's and Mother inlaws. Probably won't snow now. This is a Draw Tite Hitch. Excellent quality. 153497

The hitch came just as advertised and installed fairly easily. I had to use the free loaner tool program from a local auto parts store to clear the rust from two of the weldnuts. Once the rust was clear, installation was a piece of cake. This 2” hitch allows you to attach just about any bike rack you find on the market. 522453

2009 Subaru Legacy

My vehicle is a 2009 Subura Legacy and this hitch did fit as recommended on your website. I ran into two problems: 1) Although the hitch was described as having a tongue weight of 400 lbs. My vehicle could not accommodate anything close to that while still keeping the hitch more than 2-inches off the ground. 2) The hitch protrudes about 5 inches from the rear of the vehicle and will sometimes scrape on the ground when going over bumps or entering a steep driveway without any load attached. Since this was my first experience trying to use a trailer hitch of any kind, plus wanting to carry a rear motorcycle rack. I was disappointed to discover it wouldn't work as I had hoped. The hitch itself is sturdy and well made. There was just no suggestion on the website that this hitch which was recommended for my vehicle might not work for my intended use. In addition to the hitch tongue weight, the vehicle itself also has a maximum tongue weight which must be considered. Subaru's are notably low to the ground making them unsuitable for towing heavy loads. 516108

Arrived fast! Installation took, maybe, 90 minutes by myself. Fit perfect. I highly recommend the installation videos on the website. They are very clear and easy to follow. Can't wait to use the receiver for our cargo rack for our upcoming trip. Only issue I ran into was the plate for the rear bolt had to be shaved down a bit for a better fit. Very, very minor issue. I'll be ordering through etrailer.com again! Thanks guys! 282145

Product seems to be fine - as advertised. Delivery was prompt, small parts complete. That being said, my installation experience was very difference from the video I watched. To be fair, the video assumes you have a lift and a helper. If you're working alone with just a floor jack, things aren't going to be so easy. First of all, on my 2009 Outback 2.5i Premium, there are plastic mud deflectors in the rear lower corners of the rear wheel wells that prevent the exhaust assembly from dropping down as shown in the video. That, together with the lack of space to work in under the car, made it impossible to get the hitch in place. Fortunately, there's an easy solution: remove the mufflers. Installation is then a piece of cake so long as you don't try to connect the hitch to the tow ring first. Get the rearmost bolt in loosely on one side, then on the other side. Then you have both hands free to get the carriage bolt through the rear bracket and get the toothed washer and nut on. You can then install the forward bolts (with spacers, if needed) and tighten everything up. With both mufflers removed, you have clear access to the bolts on both sides. If you only remove one muffler, you're going to have to use a universal joint to get a socket on the bolts on the opposite side. You may need new muffler gaskets. My old ones were ok and I re-used them. 252818

Over the past 3 months I have been fixing and replacing parts on my, new to me, 05 Subaru Outback. Sway bar links, lower control arm bushings, driveline, tires, struts... and a taller hitch. Of all the products I've ordered and replaced none have been as easy to install as this hitch. Etrailer provided a YouTube video all the hardware bolts, nuts, spacers needed to do the job. They contacted me via email after my order was placed after it was shipped and after it arrived. Very customer oriented and well designed product. From a retired engineer, this hitch is simple strong and well crafted. I couldn't be happier. 385949

Bought the hitch a week ago, and installed it yesterday.it wasn't difficult to install, even by myself. The hardest part I found was putting the exhaust back on the hangers. And unless you have at least some mechanical aptitude, you are better off having your dealer or personal mechanic install it for you. Overall I like it's engineering. It's hooked up to the frame rails and not the bumper. It should work for the life of the vehicle. 628414

I have orders a few hitches from etrailer and have zero complaints about any. The directions are clear and concise and the online installation videos are nice to go over before installation. I thoroughly enjoy ordering my towing related parts from this company. I do own a trailer rental company so to have such an easy experience with etrailer makes running a business that much easier. 620020

2009 Subaru Outback PZEV: Hitch fit perfectly, very satisfied. Having the second person just to help get it into place is VERY helpful. The directions though could be a little more clear on the torque specs to the bolts as it was a little confusing to have to match them up on the paper. This caused me to slightly strip one bolt out of the main 4 bolts. 594190

Website was easy to navigate. The installation video was a big help, as were the written instructions. The hitch receiver fit perfectly on my 2009 Subaru Outback, and is very unobtrusive. Wiring harness was plug-and-play. 584920

The hitch showed up a few days early, fit perfectly, the hardware was better quality than most aftermarket accessories. Couldn't have asked for anything more. 582341

Took me and a friend about an hour to install and clean up including watching the video and getting tools together and clean up. Looks great on the car, fit is tight but not impossible to get in place. It took a little jimmying to get all the bolts in place but we didn't even raise the car to do it. Feels solid, will update if something goes wrong. Planning on mostly using it for bikes and maybe a small trailer, so this will be more than strong enough for that. 580007

product works great for a 2005 Subaru Outback wagon. My new rocky mount split rail bike rack works flawlessly with this hitch. The hitch fits perfectly and the quick instruction video made installation a breeze. 577466

Came in perfect condition despite poking through box a bit. Was a little tricky getting into place but super solid and very well built. 572586

The install video for the 2005 Subaru Outback was extremely helpful! I would recommend jacking up the back of the car, and removing all five of the exhaust clips. I wasn't equipped to jack up the back of the car, and thus unable to reach the fifth exhaust clip, which made the install much more difficult. Definitely apply WD-40/lubricant to the rubber exhaust clips...otherwise they are almost impossible to remove. The hitch feels solid and is securely fastened in my Subaru with a simple ratchet set (again, if you have a hammer driver, the project would be much easier) and WD-40. Took me about 90 minutes...90 frustrating and challenging minutes, that's about $2/minute in savings to have someone else install it. Can't wait to get our little 12' Santa Fe trailer hitched up to hit the road! 567161

The hitch seems very solid and the installation was straightforward. I use it for holding a bicycle carrier but I think it would be excellent for towing as well. I am very happy with the hitch. 566166

I ordered a hitch but wasn’t sure it was going to fit. Have and 08 Outback XT which is turbo’d and was unclear as to whether I needed a hitch for the Sport models or the one for “Excluding Sport” models. I called customer service and was treated wonderfully by a gal who was eager to help. The hitch came in three days and fit like a gem. Box was beat up a bit; but to no fault of eTrailer! Very satisfied and excited to put it to use with my bike rack! 559308

It was a pleasure doing business with etrailer. It’s my first time buying from them and I’m a one satisfied customer. I bought a hitch mount for my 2007 Subaru Outback and it was easy to install with their tutorial video. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great price and product. 556176

AAA+ Finding the products that work for my vehicle was fast and easy as was installation(took less than one hour for tow hitch and wiring), when I searched the googles for directions the first result was etrailer.com. They had videos of both the hitch and wiring installation for my exact model vehicle. Videos were to the point and easy to understand. If I ever need these products again, I will def. be a repeat customer:) 554204

Very solid hitch. Easy to install (with some help from someone far handier than I am). Installation was simple, just 5 bolts. Hardest part was lowering the exhaust assembly. I would recommend this company to friends, George emailed me personally when the hitch was delivered. 548110

I watched the video on how to install the hitch, and had it installed in under 30 minutes. It fit like a glove. and looks great you can only see the receiver. The build and hardware quality appear to be excellent. 543771

Arrived fast, installation instructions were clear and complete, vehicle specific, and included torque specs. All the bolt holes lined up. It did not, however, make me dinner. 542630

Were sorry you had to change your dining plans, but glad you like the hitch.

Received products in a couple days from ordering. Everything was packed well and intact. Installation was super easy after watching the video a couple times. It probably took me more time to figure out where the lift points were on my Subaru than to actually attach the hitch. The installation kit included all the bits I needed and contained clear information (especially in combination with the video). Will absolutely recommend the DrawTite hitch and eTrailer! 529221

Still going strong! You have to drop the exhaust from the last hangers to get to the bolts, but with a floor jack and some patience its not difficult at all. 528933

  • Both of the hitches you mentioned are good quality hitches, are easy to install and require no drilling or welding for installation. They have very similar towing cacities: 4000 lb for the Draw-Tite and 3500 lb for the Curt. I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Hitch, # 75560 for you 2006 Subaru Outback Wagon.

  • Selecting Hitch for 2007 Subaru Outback Wagon with Dual Exhaust for Use with Hitch Bike Rack
  • For your 2007 Subaru Outback Wagon with dual exhaust we offer two sizes/classes of trailer hitch, all of which are displayed on the linked page. We always recommend the higher-capacity 2-inch Class III type whenever there is a choice since it will offer a higher tongue weight (TW) rating, which is really what matters when using a hitch-mounted accessory such as a hitch bike rack like the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR or hitch cargo carrier like # 63153.

  • Recommended Class III Hitch for Use with 2-Inch Bike Rack on 2006 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • You are fortunate that for your 2006 Subaru Outback Wagon we offer three different hitch Classes, including the 2-inch Class III type which is what I recommend. Draw-Tite 2-inch hitch # 75560 installs without drilling using included hardware. (This does NOT fit on the Sport verion, please note.) An installation article and video are linked. Using a 2-inch hitch avoids the expense and weight capacity losses of hitch adapters and will result in a safer set-up. All adapters cause you to...

  • Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 75560 Fit a 2009 Subaru Outback SE with Dual Exhaust
  • Everything that I could find states that the SE in a 2009 Subaru Outback SE stands for Special Edition. In 2009 the Sport model would have been an Impreza Outback Sport which is smaller than the regular Outback. The regular Outbacks are based on the Legacy and the Outback Sport is based on the Impreza. Based on that you can install Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75560! If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a...

  • Choosing Class II or III Hitch for 2006 Subaru Legacy Sedan
  • Draw-Tite is connected with Hidden Hitch and has some identical trailer hitch options to the ones you referenced. The Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75560, and the Class II hitch # 36334. Due to the much better selection of hitch mounted accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers, we customarily recommend folks go with the 2 inch receiver of the Class III hitch in this case.
