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. Technical Support

At 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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Toyota Prius c - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2012 Toyota Prius C we'll be installing the Draw-Tite hitch, part number 24889. Here's what our hitch looks like installed on our vehicle. Now we'll go ahead and give you a couple measurements in helping you choose some accessories for your hitch, such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper is approximately 3-1/4". From the top of the opening in the receiver to the ground is approximately 12". Now let's go ahead and install our hitch. To begin with we'll need to remove some push pin fasteners that hold the lower fascia, as well as a small center section of plastic fascia.

It will need to be removed and will not be reinstalled. Now that we have all of our push pin fasteners removed we'll go ahead and set that small section of plastic aside. To install our hitch we will need to remove two existing bolts and they will be replaced by two M8 fasteners as well as two conical tooth washers, one on each. There are a total of four mounting locations for this hitch, two on each side. We are actually using the bumper bracket structure or the mounting for the bumper to connect our hitch to this vehicle.

When you remove the two bolts, the bumper will not move, as it is still held in place by the outermost bolt. Now with all the hardware removed from the factory, now we're ready to go ahead and put our hitch up into place. You'll need to work it around the exhaust pipe, as well as pulling the two tabs on the lower bumper fascia out, to allow your hitch to slide up into place. With the hitch up into place we can go ahead and install our new bolt with the conical tooth washer. You want to make sure that the teeth on the washer face towards the hitch. Go ahead and loosely tighten down all four of the bolts.

Once all four of the bolts are in, go ahead and tighten them down and then torque them to the manufacturer's specification. With everything torqued down, now we're ready to go ahead and reinstall two of the plastic push pins or rivets that we removed earlier that hold the lower bumper fascia in place. Again, the center section of lower plastic fascia will not be reinstalled. With that, that will conclude the installation of our Draw-Tite hitch, part number 24889, on our 2012 Toyota Prius C. .

The product arrived in a cardboard box. Standard shipping materials on it- tape, label, etc. As is standard practice in America, I opened the box with a few rounds from my 12 gauge shotgun and finished the rest with my lawn mower. I picked up my yuppy little Prius C with my bear hands and set it on top of a bear so I could get under it. This is standard practice in Wisconsin when needing to work on the underside of vehicles. I popped off the stupid plastic (NOTE: plastic is NOT METAL) shielding off the bottom of my Prius, as told me by the lord bearded Valhalla man in the tutorial video. He is wise as he is handsome, and so very METAL. I located the mounting brackets with ease, my bald eagle spotted them from miles away, and provided me a CAW so I found em even easier. Conveniently, the hitch comes with mounting bolts, AND there are mounting bolts already in the brackets on the vehicle. This came in very handy, because of bears. While mounting, I used a torsion rod for extra torsion. Torsion. I felt I wasn't torsioning enough per the Constitution of the United States of America. I had my bear add some torsion. The bolt snapped in half. Turns out, bears are good at torsion. This is where the vehicular bolt came in to play, I didn't even need to buy additional hardware! Once mounted, my bears and eagle had to take a meal break, per their union contracts. I let them eat my other Prius, because who needs that much smug? The receiver perfectly accepted my Saris bike rack, which flawlessly carried two bikes. This allows me to drive my Prius C around town with two bicycles hanging off the back so that everyone knows exactly how much I love the planet, leaving zero doubt in the minds of bystanders. Next step: learn how to ride a bike. 12/10, would buy again, would recommend to a native barn owl. 397341

The hitch is great. After watching the installation video on the etrailer website and looking over the instructions that came with the hitch, I was able to install it on my Prius C in about 30-40 minutes. Much easier than expected. As soon as it was installed, I tried out my bike rack and everything worked well. It's a nice hitch and it holds my bike rack securely. Definitely recommend it. Oh, and I paid about $5 extra for 3-day shipping, and the hitch arrived in time. I want to add that I'm impressed by etrailer. I like that they provide instructions and installation videos on the their website. I also asked a question on the Q&A forum and not only did someone answer my question, but he actually went out to the warehouse to measure a part of the hitch in order to accurately answer my query! I'm sure you can find similar prices elsewhere online, but I think it's worthwhile to purchase from a company like etrailer that goes out of their way to help customers in so many ways. 405462

Installed this on my 2016 Toyota Prius C. Took about 15 minutes to install. Skinny hands are handy to get top mounting bolts started. Other than that piece of cake. 379061

The hitch design is very nice. Seems very sturdy. Looks great, once installed. I have no problems installing my bike carrier. While it seems precarious having $3,000 in bikes and equipment hanging off the back of my Prius with this tiny tow hitch held on by 4 small bolts, so far so good. I hope that's just my paranoia talking. The only problem I had was in the installation. There is very little clearance between the bumper and hitch mount. I had a difficult time trying to reach into the space to install the upper bolts on each side. I had to have my wife reach in there to get the bolt partially installed. Also, there's no room for a regular socket wrench to move. You need a deep socket to clear the hitch bracket or a powered socket wrench like on the video. Which meant an extra trip to Home Depot to buy. 199180

Very clean install. The top bolts are a bit difficult to reach but ultimately went in easy and without hassle. Looks great too! 74801


UPDATE: Well a year later the hitch still looks new and there are no issues or worries. Perfect for carrying a bicycle rack!

The hitch that i ordered for my wife's Prius C so we could attach a bike mount came fast and well packed. It's a really sturdy well fabricated hitch that went on almost too easy thanks to their video demonstration. Took about 20 minutes out of the box to have it completely installed. I couldn't be any happier with the hitch and etrailers pricing could not be beat. Extremely satisfied all aroud 381718

by: Ethan01/20/2015

Installation took me about an hour but I took my time. I didn't want to risk scratching the wife's Prius. Backed the car onto ramps to lift the rear end and removed the small panel clips, panel and mfg's 4 bolts. I worked alone and found that after lifting the hitch in place it was easier to start the bolts on the bottom and then ever so gently use a floor jack placed at the tip of the hitch opening so I could tilt the hitch back just enough to make threading the top bolts easier. Product is great, shipping was fast and now the little Prius is more useful. 170497

The product just arrived so I can't comment on the quality of the hitch or ease of install, but I have to say it arrived quickly and in very good shape. The whole process was was what internet orders should be. This is the 3rd hitch and the 5th order with etrailer, there is a very good reason I keep coming back. I'll write another review when I get this one installed. If it is like the other 2 I bought from etrailer, it will be a good review. 215474

Received on time and very quickly, the experience itself with etrailer was pleasant. Receiver was cheap and fairly easy to install. Any DIYer with a tool set can tackle it themselves. Used it on a 2,000 Mike road trip hauling two road bikes without any issues. The two ears that stick out the sides of the receiver are a nice addition, as they allow you to route a cable lock through then for extra security. 142233

by: JDub09/06/2016

Easy to install this hitch onto a Prius C. The printed instructions are OK but the video on etrailer is very useful. I had more issue removing the plastic fasteners from my Prius than doing the installation. There is not a lot of room to tighten the bolts but can be done, just slow going. I only use this to hold a bike rack. I don't know that I would pull a 2000 lb trailer as the hitch is rated. 291938

by: Dave03/06/2017

The video made this easy. The fit and finish are perfect. The only difficulty is access to the top bolts after installing the hitch. Clearance becomes limited so I needed to get just the right extension for my socket. It took less than a half hour to install and it looks and works great. Truthfully the only thing that would be better is if you came over and did it for me. 349002

by: Lisa R.04/27/2015

For a 2-bike rack that is compatible I recommend the Thule Vertex, # TH9028XT, for a hanging rack. The Vertex is 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright mast.

We are aware that there was a company that we do not carry that used to make a 2 inch hitch for the Prius. 2 inch hitch accessories are typically larger and heavier than 1-1/4 inch ones so it's just an all-around bad idea to have a 2 inch hitch on a Prius.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatible With Toyota Prius C Model Years 2015-2017
  • In order to confirm a fit for a hitch like the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24889 the manufacturer has to install a hitch on that model year of vehicle. At this point, they haven't yet had the opportunity to fit the-2017 Toyota Prius C models, but I just confirmed with my contact at Draw-Tite, this hitch will fit 2012-2016 models. Although it is likely the trailer hitch receiver will fit a 2017 model, it is not yet confirmed. If you...

  • Is the Swagman XTC Bike Rack Recommended for Womens Bikes and a 2008 Honda Accord Sedan
  • Yes, the Swagman XTC 2 part # S64670 that you referenced would work great with a ladys bike that does not have a horizontal top tube. The hook of the rack can adjust down far enough that it would have no problem attaching to a lower top tube. This rack is very universal in the vehicles it can fit and would have no problem being used on your 2008 Honda Accord as long as you have a hitch installed on it like the # 24889. Check out the review video I attached that shows the rack being used...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Toyota Prius c
  • To install the Thule Helium Bike Rack # TH9042 that you referenced you will first need a hitch installed on your 2012 Toyota Prius c. For that I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24889. The # TH9042 should clear your rear bumper easily. This rack has a distance of 14-3/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest upright bar of the rack, and if you check out the picture I attached of the # 24889 you will see that the bumper does not go much past the hitch opening...

  • Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2012 Toyota Prius C
  • You sure can! For a hitch, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24889. For a cargo carrier, I really like the # 63155 from Pro Series. The carrier has usable platform space of about 20 x 48 inches, and features an angled shank that increases the carrier's ground clearance by 3 inches. If you needed a cargo bag to protect your cargo from road gunk, Rola offers the # 59102 cargo bag that's expandable from 9.5 to 11.5 cubic feet of storage space.

  • Available Class I Trailer Hitches for 2014 Toyota Prius c
  • We do have Class I hitches confirmed to fit your 2014 Toyota Prius C, including Curt hitch # C11299, that you can see on the linked page. We do not have a hitch part 35799. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24889 over the Curt hitch since it costs less and does not have the requirement to use a support strap # 18050 for non-trailer loads like bike carriers the way the Curt hitch does. It offers the very same capacities as the Curt. An installation video is linked for you.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Draw Tite Class I Hitch part # 24889
  • I have a similar platform bike rack that would fit the Draw Tite hitch part # 24889 that you referenced, but this is a Class I hitch and the bike rack you referenced is for Class II and up hitches so it would not work. Instead you would need the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the...
