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. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

I was concerned about cutting the fascia, but it wasn't difficult and the car looks fine afterwards. The cut area is far under the car. I put painter's tape on the fascia, marked out the area to be cut, centering between the two holes for plastic fasteners. It cut easily with a utility knife, making several passes. The hole dimensions in the manual are accurate. The hole is cut adjacent (cut in from) the lower edge. The rest of the installation was easy. It would help to have extra deep sockets for removing the 15mm bolts, but it can be done with a standard wrench, and a regular socket will work for reinstalling. You will need a deep socket for torquing the bolts that come with the kit. Technically the bolts aren't metric (11/16" socket) , but a deep 17mm socket fit. 561161

It doesn't get much easier than that. 20 minute install. Their piano wire bolt fish tape is a great idea. Tin snips work great for the 3-1/2 x 5" cutout in the rear apron of car. Hitch is a little low to the ground but that's because of the car not this hitch. The center of the receiver socket is about 10-1/2" off the ground, so keep this in mind if you expect to put a cargo basket on this hitch. If you can find a basket with a little serpentine in the neck, it would be wise to get it. I installed a draw bar with a 3" rise and can see the ball in the rear view camera so backing up to a trailer is a breeze. 558286

Solid hitch and arrived in perfect condition. Installation was straight forward. It helps to raise the car for access. I just blocked each rear wheel 1.5” but more would have made it easier. You will need 15mm and 11/16 deep sockets. 546587

Arrived quickly. Simple to install. The receiver offered as an option by Chevy is from a different manufacturer and has a maximum tongue weight of only 100 pounds. This one, from Draw-Tite can handle 200 pounds. I'm glad I checked load ratings before having Chevy put an inferior one on my new Bolt! 473212

Plusses: the hitch installed easily and the directions were spot on. It's raised high enough off the ground that I don't worry about scraping bumps. Cons: etrailer sent me one wrong sized nut in the package, so in the middle of the installation I had to make a trip to the hardware store for the right size. Otherwise this would be a 5 star rating. 425584

5 stars for delivery on time. This is a gift for our Grandson. It has not been opened. He is an electrical engineer and thoroughly checks out anything he wishes to acquire, so I am guessing the product is exceptional. cb 421825

I was worried that my recently released car wouldn't have a hitch that would work, but after research online, I found the correct model and etrailer.com had it for a great price. The shipping was quick and all the parts and instructions were included. It was nice to do business with a company that actually knows how do a transaction without drama! I will definitely buy from them again. 401622


Comments

Both products are still performing as they did a year ago. The hitch holds the rack perfectly and also takes my bike rack. You guys are the only ones I will use for the hitch on my next car which I will be getting in the next 6-8 months. Thanks for your excellent customer service and follow up, thats what sets you guys apart from your competitors!

From other reviews I was a little sceptical with how the final installation would go. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to install and how tidy the end result presented itself. Even with my ultra-careful execution, I was done in 45 minutes. Now I could do a second one in less than 15. I included a picture to show how tight the finished install tucks up under the bumper. Kudos all around. Going for a ride now. 500797

Easy to install. Used with Thule Helium Aero 3 Bike Hitch Rack. 442845



- 24956

I chose the Draw-Tite hitch for my Chevy Bolt EV over the Curt hitch as my two bike rack would be right at the Curt 100# tongue-weight limit, and I did not want to worry about the stabilizer straps called for in the Curt installation instructions; "WARNING:WE RECOMMEND THE USE OF 18050 STABILIZING STRAPS FOR ALL NON-TRAILER (WHEEL-LESS) LOADS". Draw-Tite hitch arrived well packaged and in new condition. All items needed to do the installation were included. Fasteners that hold the rear Bumper Fascia onto the frame were easy to remove and provided excellent access. You will need to make the cut-out for the receiver prior to mounting the hitch. Installation was easy and straight forward. Used the hitch/rack this past weekend. Easy to load and stable on rough road and at freeway speeds. I would buy this hitch again. 397766

Recently installed hitch on my 2017 Chevy Bolt EV. Package arrived on time in good condition. The installation was straightforward. Instructions were adequate. It took a little longer to install because I was overly cautious about cutting the fascia cleanly, and it really doesn't show, so I needn't have been so careful. Looks good on the car and works perfectly with my Thule bike carrier. 468691

Installation was straightforward. Easy enough to do on the garage floor without jacking the car up. It is plainly visible through the aero cutouts on both sides of the rear lower fascia, which has me worried that it's blocking the exit air flow from under the floor and decreasing range. The curt hitch looks like it may not do that at the expense of load capacity (higher cross bar, but long moment arm on the receiver). Since installation is so easy, I may resort to removing the whole thing when not in use. Pros: more load capacity, looks to have more clearance than curt hitch Cons: increased mass, possible large aerodynamic impact. 489837

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Ground Clearance for Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch on 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV
  • I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and he stated that the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch # 24956, which is confirmed to fit your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, has a measurement from the ground to the top of the receiver when installed on your vehicle of 11 inches. So this will provide some more ground clearance when compared to the 7 inches for the Curt hitch that you mentioned in your question. This hitch will provide a 200 pound tongue weight capacity and no drilling will be required...

  • Easy-to-Remove Bike Rack for 2017 Chevy Bolt EV
  • For your 2017 Chevy Bolt EV there are only Class I 1-1/4 inch hitches available like the Draw Tite part # 24956 which will limit your choices but there are still great options for your vehicle. The Saris Freedom part # SA4025F is the best ightweight option. It's easy to remove and only weighs 35 lbs which is very light for a platform bike rack. This rack also only touches the tires of the bikes when loaded so it won't damage or scratch any paint finishes.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And Hitch Mounted Bike Rack For 2017 Chevy Bolt EV
  • If you have a 2017 Chevy Bolt, that is not the EV, we don't have a hitch that is confirmed to fit. If you have the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV, then the hitches you mentioned are confirmed to fit. I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24956 over the Curt trailer hitch receiver because it is sturdier and can handle double the weight capacity for your bike rack. A Class 1 hitch will limit your bike rack options due to the shank size...

  • How To Carry 4 Bikes on a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24956 for your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV does indeed have a 200 lb max tongue weight rating however, the hitch is almost always rated for more weight than the vehicle can handle. In addition to weight capacity, the maximum number of bikes that can be loaded on a Class I hitch is 2 and since they only make a Class I hitch for your vehicle, you will be limited to 2 bikes. The reason for the 2 bike maximum has more to do with leverage than...

  • How to Transport 4 Bikes with 2017 Chevy Bolt EV
  • The hitch you mentioned # 24956 is a Class I hitch which means it has a very low weight capacity. That means it can only carry up to two bikes at a time due to the increased weight and leverage of bikes beyond the 2 bike portion of the rack. Also, Yakima does not have any bike racks compatible with Class I hitches. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR.

  • Where is the Fascia Trimmed to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Chevy Bolt EV
  • The area on the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV that needs to be trimmed is the center, lowest point of the rear fascia that, once trimmed and the hitch installed, won't be visible. The area being trimmed is 3-1/4 inches across and 5 inches deep/tall. I have included a picture from the instructions for Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24956 showing this. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Chevy Bolt and Thule EasyFold Bike Rack
  • Yes, you can use either Draw-Tite hitch # 24956 or Curt trailer hitch # C11457 with the Thule EasyFold bike rack, # TH903202, on your 2017 Chevy Bolt. If it were me I would go with the Draw-Tite hitch # 24956 for 2 reasons. First, Draw-Tite does not require the use of a stabilization strap for non-trailer loads like Curt does. If you went with the Curt hitch you would also need to use stabilization strap # 18050. And second customers have reported that the receiver on the Curt hitch...

  • Recommendation on a Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV
  • Between the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C11457, and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch , # 24956, I recommend the Draw-Tite Hitch for its better ground clearance. The Draw-Tite hitch's receiver opening sits closer to the hitch cross tube. The location of the receiver will give you more ground clearance over the Curt hitch design.When installing this hitch, minor trimming of the bumper fascia is required. Consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act....

  • Does Draw-Tite Class 1 Receiver Hitch Need A Stabilization Strap?
  • No. The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24956 for your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV does not require a stabilization strap for any non-towing accessory like the Curt hitches. If you will be using this hitch for towing, I recommend the Sportframe Drawbar 2-1/8" Rise or 2-3/4" Drop 2000 lb Kit # 3593 along with hitch ball # 19258 for 2 inch or # 19256 for 1-7/8 inch hitch ball.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV
  • The Reese 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack w/ Frame Mount Cradles # 63120 referenced in your question is a great 2 bike rack that will work with Class I and Class II trailer hitches. A nice feature on this rack is that it can tilt away from the vehicle with the bikes unloaded for easy rear cargo access. A standard pin and clip is included with the rack but I recommend looking at a locking hitch pin like the Tow Ready # 5200 to secure the rack to the hitch and deter theft. You can use...
