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.

Ive had it on for a year now. I haven't towed anything but I have used it with a rack. It carried about 250lbs for about 10 hrs no problem. It doesn't show any sign of rust. I had to cut the bumper to install. If I had to buy again I would probably buy this same model. 716973

2014 Jeep Patriot

I received my trailer hitch for my 2014 Jeep Patriot very fast and it arrived in great condition. The 2014 Jeep Patriot video on your web site was fantastic! It was clear and easy to follow. I did everything shown in the video in the order presented and everything went together just fine with absolutely no surprises. One thing to keep in mind is that a second person is a must when installing the hitch up against the frame rails (impossible for one person to do) but my obliging wife was nearby so she was able to hold up the drivers side of the hitch while I fitted the passenger side and in just a couple minutes I had my bolts in and was able to take over the other side from my wife, all that was left to do was to tighten and torque things up, it was really just that easy, and in the end it looks as good as the installation in the video. 397810

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. 514724


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.

Product was well made for the most part. The tabs were about 3/8" short on fitting rail to rail on a 2017 Jeep Patriot. What concerned me the most was the trim ring around the tube end was COVERED in weld splatter as is the bottom of the tube. It was totally wrapped in plastic so I didn't see it till I was installing it. By then I had to have it for the next day. Otherwise I most certainly would have returned it. While this doesn't compromise the strength ... it looks bad for a new hitch. Very disappointed. 548541

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. 134653

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. 563575

Great instructions. Recommend watching the video as it adds more to the "how to" than just the print. If you have a 2017 Patriot Sport, the bumpr wraps farther under than the video shows and you will need to cut away more material to get the hitch in place. If you have the factory tow hook and want to re-use it, find a machine shop to drill the holes out to 5/8". Don't waste your time or money on drill bits. This thing is HARD. My machine shop had to sharpen his bit 3 times just to complete the 2 holes. I went through 4 bits and didn't even begin to drill it out. Also be aware that the clip that the bumper bolt goes into for the hook is only set in place and will want to come out inside the frame. It is a pain in the butt to get back in place. Hitch fit great, was actually alittle "loose" making it easy to fit between the frame rails. However, it came right over when the bolts were tightened. Wiring harness is great item. Really plug and play. Other reviews say not enough zip ties. I had a bunch left over. You can run the wire through the frame for a long strech. Be surte to use the "flat" holes as there are a couple with an upward lip that would rub on the wire. Highly recommend this set up. 481944

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) 524891

Good quality hitch and fits my 2017 Jeep Patriot really well. Took me a while to get this installed as I was working by myself with no lift. If you have a Jeep Patriot, you will definitely want to drop the exhaust and the rear windshield washer motor/pump. The most time consuming part for me was cutting the rear skirt to allow the hitch to come through. Finished install looks great and my Jeep pulls my boat really well. 821630

  • Can a 2016 Jeep Compass Tow a Trailer
    You can tow a trailer with your 2016 Jeep Compass Sport and we have the parts to help you get it ready to do so; however, you need to stay within the limited capacities of the vehicle. From my research the most any Jeep Compass can tow is 2,000 pounds. To do so requires the 2.4L engine with either the Trailer Tow Prep or Off Road packages. Other models are limited to only 1,000 pounds. I recommend checking your owner's manual to verify these numbers. If you are going to be towing...

For example if you have the 2.0L engine the maximum trailer weight is 1,000 pounds but if you have the 2.4L engine with the trailer tow package then the maximum weight is 2,000 pounds.

  • 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.
