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.

Great product & service. I’m local so had etrailer do install. Everything went off without “a hitch.” 770946

Just received and installed. Good quality, great custom fit and moderately easy installation. It took me about an hour start to finish to install and I am far from professional. It would have been much easier with a second set of hands, but I did it alone and managed. 770630

The hitch is great functionally, seems very solid and does what it’s supposed to do. It’s not very difficult to install and on the CX-5 it looks great without sticking out too much. What bothers me is the manufacturer’s claim that “The combination of an e-coat base and a powder coat finish provides excellent rust protection”. This is far from truth. The top coat started bubbling and peeling off and the hitch started rusting after less than 2 months after installation before even seeing any snow (see attached picture). I understand if this happened after a long and heavy winter but that was not the case. I’m not impressed with the top coat quality at all. 557444

Purchased for a 2018 Mazda CX 5. Hitch fit well. Important to leave rear rubber muffler hangers on top hanger; push all the way back in once you have the muffler off. Not enough space between hitch and muffler hanger, to get back on, if you don't. Rear threshold panel comes off like every other year, but side panels have one push button trim tab on each side, then two trim pops along rear hatch sides(see pictures), 1 screw in hold down latches, and in front, each side. Bolts on hold downs, back left and right and in the front. Trim will pop right off, but I only moved it out enough to work. On passenger side, push trim in place first before pushing in the seat latch. It has a pop attachment on it. There is a grommet on the left side that you can run a power wire through and a good ground bolt. The 2018, has full undercover and that has to be removed to run the wire up to the battery. Takes pictures before you start. It was a real pain, but that is what I started and finished. The trailer harness could have been about 6 inches longer. It doesn't quite reach the hitch and I stuck the power module as far back on the left side, as I could. Everything looks good and it works, but it took me, working by myself, a lot longer than the times listed.. 473732

After one year and many miles of towing and carrying a rear rack, this hitch has worked well. I especially like the J pin stabilizer pin that I use with it. It keeps the tow bar and ball solid so there it no rattle. Well worth the extra cost.

Product Was good and fit perfectly on my car.Installation is super easy as with instructions and videos.This is my first time installing a hitch so initially I struggled as due to lack of help. After a little research and with the help of a friend Installed in 15 Mins(Research and initials trail not counted).Things to remember. 1)Car ramps will help where we can pick from [hardware store]. 2)Flat head screwdriver and soap water is super good option for removing Exhaust from hangers. 3)Rubber bushes should be on top hooks and facing front side of the car(Not back side to-wards trunk). 4)Remove one facia screw(plastic clip) for easy adjustment which was not demonstrated in the video but advised in the manual. 5)Better to keep the fish wires of the back bolts to avoid pushing them inside the frame.(C-retention rings will help where manufacturer is not providing). 6)Second person will make the job easy. Paint Quality is very very poor which is pealing out as mentioned by others in this forum. Installed my Kuat rack which comes with stabilizer and fits perfect. yet to test on the roads. Pics or not so clear. 519916

Great hitch for my new Mazda CX5! Just got a new bike rack as well. This is my 2nd hitch from you and always great service. Thanks, Jeff 457667

DrawTite trailer hitch fit my CX-5 as advertised. Installation was very straight forward particularly due to the installation videos available on the etrailer web site. The Tekonsha wiring harness was simple to install once all of the interior trim was removed; something the etrailer video made easy. When I decided to purchase a trailer I knew that I'd have to get a hitch for my vehicle. Since I do not routinely pull trailers I knew little about hitches and the other components associated with them. After looking around online I found etrailers.com. I called customer service and was connected to a very helpful person named Chedi. He explained the products available and what I'd need for my particular setup. My purchasing experience with etrailers was very good; from ordering, to receiving, to the installation. Thank you etrailers. 574870

The trailer hitch fit well onto the frame of the Mazda CX-5. It was a little difficult to install by myself. Really would have been much easier with two people. But etrailer did not indicate that it was a one-man job. It's obvious that it is a well built trailer hitch - Strong, heavy, and as I said before, fit well. The instructions which came with it did not seem all that helpful. Not sure if I could have installed the hitch if that were the only information I had. Fortunately, there were various videos I was able to find through YouTube and on the etrailer site which were closely related to my situation. 483458

Ive only needed to use it a few times in the year that I had it. But it has always worked fine without issue. The paint has also held up well. No problems.

As usual etrailer made sure my Draw-Tite hitch arrived quickly to my door step. While the item was packaged nicely, It was a little disappointing to see multiple chips in the powder coating upon opening it up. While the chips will make no difference in the performance of the hitch, it was a little frustrating. Draw-Tite makes a quality product and I can't wait to get it installed. I would have given the hitch 5 stars if it wasn't for the powder coating chips. 466639

Delivery and product were excellent. With the helpful videos, installation was straightforward. I realize the item description said a part may be needed to be cut for the 2017 Mazda CX-5 GT model, but it would have been nice to have a custom made hitch fit perfectly without discarding a piece of the plastic under the bumper. There is a strip of plastic that needs to be removed and discarded with a flathead screwdriver for the hitch to fit on the GT model. Besides that, everything was of great quality and craftsmanship. After reading other reviews, I listened to others and left the rubber exhaust hangers on the top hooks, on the car, rather than on the exhaust itself. One thing to add was when I rotated the hanger to make installing the hitch easier, I rotated it back towards the rear, which I later learned took a little effort rotating it all the way forward and down to reattach the exhaust. I should have rotated the oval hanger forward, towards the front, which would have taken no effort rotating back down to reattach the exhaust. Don't know if that makes any sense, but I'll attach some photos for reference. 417989

Sorry for answering until now But I was not able to install until today I received on time with no problems. I was really easy to install, it takes me 45 min, but I did it on the floor without any help. I got it in order to install it on a Mazda CX-5 2017 (2018 mexican) to use my bike rack It was exactly what I expected Attached some photos Thanks 453462

Came as expected. The instruction and videos were great. I recommend that you get someone to help with the installation. It is not difficult but trying to raise the hitch into position to bolt it on is very difficult to do with one person. I managed but barely. I did not raise the car but if it was on a lift it may have been easier with one person. 895964

The fish for the bolts was very helpful! And one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” One bolt with fish and bracket needed to be put into the body then fished back through same hole. Instructions weren’t clear on that part for me or I misread it. ISpraying lube on the muffler mounts made things easier 894103

  • Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Hitches for 2019 Mazda CX-5
    The Curt # C13315 and the Draw Tite part # 76138 for your 2019 Mazda CX-5 are both really great options that would both work great for you, but if I had to pick one over the other I would go with the Curt as it is a little less visible at the rear of the vehicle than the Draw Tite. I attached a picture that shows both hitches installed and you can see the Curt has a smaller appearance at the rear of the vehicle. The big difference being a bracket on top of the hitch tube that I pointed...
