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.

This is a good hitch. Not sure about other applications but for the Jeep Patriot, it is designed to be used along with the rear toe hook. If you are not installing the rear toe hook or don’t have one, a 3/16” thick shim on the driver side should be used to make up the difference. I used 5/8” washers. Also, if you have existing factory trailer wiring, the hitch interferes with the through wiring from the top. This is because this hitch sits about an inch higher than other hitches. The rear lower bumper cover will need to be trimmed to accommodate the receiver portion of the hitch. This is not a surprise as it is stated as such on the website. Overall the hitch is well constructed. The box the hitch came in was pretty beat up upon arrival. Some how all hardware stay inside. I would recommend but there is a bit more to installing this one.

This hitch wasn't quite as easy to install as in the video without the car up on a rack. The video was helpful. The hitch requires some jockeying around to get both bolts to go in. I used a couple of jacks to make it happen. The brackets were a little narrow for my 2014 Jeep Compass so I used a few 1/8 inch washers on one side to avoid stressing the welds too much on tightening. In the end the install came out good and the hitch seems solid.


Comments
Ive been using the hitch to attach a bike carrier. It has worked great for that and seems very strong.

The one sheet install directions were wanting . The hitch fit well once we figured out to get it up. On the driver's side the Patriot has a plastic box that makes it hard to set the hitch. We found the bumper needed to be cut before the hitch could get in back of this box (some type of converter). We set the forward bolt on the right side of the hitch. This allowed us the line up the receiver on the bumper and we scribbed a mark on both sides. We cut the slot out with a soldering iron (pictured) and later a multi tool. After the slot was in we could tilt the hitch up which allowed us get the driver's side behind the plastic box. Again setting the forward bolt first. Then it was just a matter getting the rear bolts lined up. (A better description on marking the slot would have helped.) We continued to trim the slot with the multi tool until we could line up the bolts with the hitch. We did drop the muffer which was easy enough. It's odd the Jeep would have holes to receive a hitch and not have socket the wiring to plug in the wiring for the trailer. The wiring took as long as the hitch. (No fault of E-Trailer)

The hitch arrived in a nice box that has hand holes in it for easy handling. The hitch could use some sort of dense foam padding inside the box, especially on the flange tabs that attach to the car frame, as the shipper was less than careful and those we're sticking out of the box. The bag containing the parts was ripped and there were 2 loose washers floating around in the box (luckily they didn't fall out of the holes). The instructions were easy enough to follow, although there need to be some corrections/additions made to them. First is the depth dimension for the cutout in the rear fascia, as it wasn't even close, instead of 2" it turned out to be 4 1/2" up from the bottom. Second would be the addition of the socket/wrench size needed to tighten down the nuts and bolts, as the only place I saw that was in the reference video and you had to be watching closely because they don't mention the size in the video. I only bring this up because a lot of socket sets don't have a 7/8" socket or wrench (like mine) and you will have to make a trip to buy one (like me). It is very helpful to have someone help you get the hitch into position to finish the installation. Overall the hitch is a good bargain, well made and very sturdy, I would definitely recommend it.

Hitch & Light Kit Timely shipping. Products as ordered. No parts missing. Installed without a problem, Lite kit was initially problematic but not unrealistic install. Used bumper as feet for compressor, cost 75% less than Sears. Good deal overall.

The hitch came well packaged, and on time. Shipping was faster than the same product from that big box website named after the river! I watched the video from etrailer.com and it helped immensely. I had to trim the heat shield a bit that wasn't in the video but it took about 30sec with a pair of tin snips. Everything else was just like the video explained. Total installation time was about 2hrs. I really appreciate the way the hitch sits so that it doesn't lessen ground clearance, which was a concern for me. Emails from etrailer.com were Johnny on the spot. I'll definitely be doing business with them and recommending them to friends.

This for my 08 Jeep Patriot. Ordered on a Saturday, had the hitch by Thursday. And about 20 minutes after opening the package it was on my Jeep. Couldn't be easier to install, and i was able to do it all by myself. I bought this for my Thule bike rack, and it works perfectly.


Comments
A year later and the product is every bit as good when it was brand new. Ive probably told a half dozen people about the site and how easy it was to install. Found my Thule bike rack on Craigslist, and the savings paid for the hitch.

Easy to install. Only two tools used: 22mm socket wrench and an adjustable wrench. I installed the hitch on my 2010 Jeep Patriot in about 15 minutes with no lift or jack and without lowering my exhaust. Bolts lined up and fit perfectly. Didn’t have to cut any part of my bumper.

So far so good. The install took about an hour without having access to a lift. The hitch seems very sturdy. I'll find out soon enough. The price is great. Saved me about $140.00 by purchasing and doing the install myself.

2010 Jeep Patriot

I finally got around to installing a hitch on my 2010 Patriot. I opted for the Draw-Tite hitch from etrailer.com because 1) it was half the price of a Mopar hitch, 2) it received excellent reviews, and 3) etrailer has wonderful videos walking you through the installation. The hitch was delivered in no time, and was mounted the following day. Installation was fairly straightforward with no surprises. If you have a 2010 Patriot, the video showing installation on the ’09 is what you want; the process is the same. It would have been easier with another pair of hands, but I was able to do everything alone. A lift would certainly have helped, but isn't necessary. I didn't need to lower the muffler, and the 2010 Patriot doesn't require the fascia to be trimmed. One last thing: after ordering, I did see the same hitch advertised elsewhere for a few bucks less. Etrailer's Lowest Price Pledge was honored, and I received credit for 110% of the difference in price, just like they said they would. I would definitely deal with this company in the future.

Etrailer is Top Shelf! My hitch with harness delivered in 2 days for free. Installation was another story. The hitch wasnt the problem, it was the Tow hook on the Patriot. That hardness on that hook had to be a Rockwell 99. Lol. It dulled the hss drill so i took out a carbide bur tool. After an hour of cutting and grinding i had reemed the holes just large enough for the bolts to go through. Then i went back to installing the hitch. The bolts were fully threaded. They only need to be threaded the last inch or so. The next day i ran the Hot wire all the way back to the taillights wire tying it to the brake lines. Completing the rest of the connections was simple. I extended the ground wire. Off the control box the black wire was used for the + lead (instructions said Red wire, is there no parity in instructions)to the battery. All connections were soldered and shrink wrapped.wire tyed the rest. Tested the brakes/turn sigs and running lights on the trailer. Off to the lake with the sea kayaks. Thanks again for the speedy delivery. etrailer Rocks!

An easy install if you follow the video instructions. Hitch fit perfectly. Only minor issues encountered: 1. Did not have the benefit of a car lift for installation. Just performed it while laying underneath the car on the driveway. 2. Tightening the bolts was a challenge because of the long length of the torque wrench and laying on the driveway. Not bad for a rare DIYer. Check out the result. Took about 30 minutes.

I had to enlarge 1 hole on the hitch in order to get all 4 bolts installed. Otherwise the installation video was spot on and the installation went well. The hitch was of good quality with smooth welds and good rustproof covering. Will buy for my next vehicle.

Bought the 2” receiver to mount bike carrier and hitch tray that I use to transport garbage cans. (Liberty can only tow 1,000 lbs) so a class III is overkill. Hitch fit really well and the video from eTrailer was very helpful and described the process extremely well. The one thing lacking in the written description and video was the height dimension of the cut out of the valance for the receiver. This resulted in trial and error and added significant time for installation. A template for the cut out would make the fitting and installation WAY easier. Overall 8/10. Provide the template and it would be a 10/10.


Comments
The installation instructions indicate the measurements needed for install on a 2011 and later Jeep Patriot. For this vehicle trimming the fascia is about 3 inches wide, and 5 inches subtracted from the height of the vehicle frame to the ground.

E trailer shipping, packaging and instructions were dead on. The online video just to keep me sane was a help also. Took awhile longer than the 30 minute estimate, but this was mostly due to my own caution. The hitch bolted up perfectly and I'm more than satisfied with the results.

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch



  • Do Draw Tite Hitches Require Use of Stabilizer Strap Like Curt Hitches
    Draw Tite does not require the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when used with non-supported loads like a bike rack or cargo carrier. It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to use the strap with a Draw Tite hitch, but failing to use it would not void the warranty as with the Curt hitch. I attached a video that details how to use the strap as well.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Hitch that Seems To Short to Match Up to Frame Width
    Sometimes hitches get bent in shipping. Especially if the hitch has a larger flange and is longer like the Draw Tite part # 75712. The solution for you would be to torque the hardware down without using washers. As long as there isn't any creasing or paint flaking on the hitch it's totally safe.

    Typically the fit issues you described aren't actually problems with the hitch design.

Or on some vehicles we have found that the vehicle itself just has some variation in the dimensions the rear structure. 99% of the time though the issue is just a hitch bent in shipping that needs to just be bent back.

You also will want to check the owners manual of the vehicle to determine what the towing capacities there are too. You need to stay under the lowest rated capacity in the setup.
