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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Honda Element

Okay we are going to do an install on a Honda element using part number 24720. We will take out all the spare tire and the plastic so we can actually do the install. Okay we will go ahead and clean out the trunk area and then get down to the spare tire and take that apart. What well do next is tighten this down just enough to snug it to hold it in place, and then well see where to drill or holes out using the hitch as a template.

We will use the hitch as a template to drill or holes, so well just use a drill and let the hitch do the work for us, we will punch right through this thin metal with a half-inch bit. Now we are back inside the vehicle here, we will go ahead and apply sealant to the holes to keep exhaust fumes from coming into the cabin. We will put a simple circle around it then put the bolts through and then go back underneath and start tightening them down. All right, now we will go tighten them back up.

Well take our torque wrench and torque these down, and these down to their proper torque settings and that will pretty much be it. When we torque these bolts down sometimes it might help to have an assistant use an adjustable wrench or nice set of adjustable pliers to hold the blocks in place while we torque them down. We got a guy on top holding them down and we will go ahead and torque them. And that pretty much covers it for the install of that hitch

Having never used a vehicle with a hitch I was very pleased with the experience of researching, ordering, and receiving the Draw-tite hitch from etrailer.com. A friend who has installed many hitches over the years was amazed at how easy and quick this installation was. Even the instructions were easy to follow. Thanks etrailer.com 577434

Product appears to be very good. However when I was installing hitch I drilled holes for the 7/16 bolts ,siliconed bolts put them in and tried to install hitch except I was given 2-3/8" nuts that didn't fit the bolts. I had to borrow a different vehicle to get different nuts.. Basically wasted a half hour to go buy additional nuts to be able to install hitch. 556603

Easy to install on 2003 Honda Element by 2 bumbling non-mechanic-types. Best for a second pair of hands to hold assembly in place while another person attaches it with ratchet wrench to U bolt under car. No need for drilling or messy install - everything was ready on the Element. Can't wait to try it out. 139036

The hitch was installed when the Honda Element was in for a regular service. Their comments: Hitch installed in 40 minutes and fit was good. The Curt wiring kit was top quality. However, since a Honda Element has no trunk, all the interior panels and rear seats need to be removed to install the wiring. That adds several hours to the installation time (and cost). 136864

Easy installation of product, wire harness (ordered as separate product) and steel hardware of good quality. Easy ordering product, arrived on time, over all very happy with the product. (2008 Honda Element) 114783


Comments

I still enjoy the product, installation and tie-in into the car-electric was easy. The rubber cover of the hitch occasionally falls off in a car wash and should be secured with a wire, etc.Otherwise, nothing to report, product did what it promised.

I have not yet mounted the trailer hitch draw bar and wiring for my Honda Element. BUT I have to acknowledge the superb customer service that I've received during and after my purchase on etrailer.com. Just as an example - on the page where I am typing this, there are links to a video of how to mount the equipment I purchased, plus a .pdf file of instructions, and a "Beginner's Guide for Towing." video. How freaking cool is that for customer support? 45325

The order was delivered a couple days ahead of time and we went out of town for the weekend. I haven't put it on as yet but it seems to be a real easy installation. It's adequate for the bike rack and light towing I'll be doing. The vehicle isn't up to a heavier (wt) receiver anyway. 15674

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


  • Trailer Hitch Receiver to Fit 2007 Honda Element SC
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24720 is not confirmed to fit the SC model of the 2007 Honda Element. For your SC we carry the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75659 which is a Class III hitch and the Curt # C11699 which is a Class I. Between the two I recommend the Draw-Tite because the Class III hitch will give you a much larger variety of bike racks to use than the Class I. Also, with the Curt hitch you'll need to use a support strap # 18050 to be compliant with its warranty when carrying a bike rack.

  • Tilting Bike Rack that Will Let Tailgate Down on a 2007 Honda Element
  • I do have a recommendation for you but I am not confident that the Curt rack, # C18029, will tilt down far enough to lower the tailgate on your 2007 Honda Element. But take a look at the Kuat Beta bike racks such as # B202-2 for 2 inch hitches or # B202-114 for 1-1/4 inch hitches. This racks tilt down much further so clearance for the tailgate won't be a problem. On your Element the 2 inch Draw-Tite hitch is # 75659. The 1-1/4 inch version is # 24720 (excludes SC models).

  • Is a 1-1/4 to 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter Recommended for Use with a 2 inch Cargo Carrier
  • I would discourage the use of an adapter for use of 2 inch accessories in 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers. The reason is that the adapter places the carrier farther away from the rear of the vehicle and hitch, creating additional torque that 1-1/4 inch hitches, especially Class I hitches, are not designed to handle. For this reason all 1-1/4 to 2 inch hitch adapters decrease the hitch or vehicle tongue weight capacity, whichever is lowest, by 50 percent, making a class one hitch only...

  • Trailer Hitch Extender or Adapter for a Factory 1-1/4 Inch Hitch on a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek
  • If you just need to extend the 1-1/4 inch receiver out then you can use extender # HES6. If you do need to go from a 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch then you can use # HTAD. But keep in mind that the use of an extender or adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation to Tow a 1,300 Pound Utility Trailer with a 2004 Honda Element
  • The Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24720 has a capacity of 2,000 pounds. It is given this rating based on its connection points on the vehicle and testing done by the manufacturer. The connection points on the vehicle for this hitch can handle the 1,300 pounds. The bolts in the spare tire well will also require the included support blocks that distribute the weight to a wider area beyond where they are attached on the vehicle. What I recommend to give you piece of mind is to go with a...

  • What Is Tongue Weight And Hitch That Will Fit On 2009 Honda Element
  • The first thing you will want to check in the owners manual or with the car dealer is the GCVWR (Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Rating). The GCVWR is the weight capacity for your vehicle, which includes the vehicle, trailer and the contents. The Trailer Hitch for the 2009 Honda Element, # 24720, will only work on a 2009 Honda Element that is not an SC model. If your vehicle is not a SC model then it would fit and work fine for towing the 750-800 lb. trailer. The Gross Towing Weight on...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2005 Honda Element
  • Yes, the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24720 is a fit for your 2005 Honda Element with 4WD. However, this hitch only has a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening and since you plan to be towing a trailer then I highly recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75659 because it has a 2" receiver tube opening. As you mentioned you will also need a trailer wiring harness and ball mount/hitch ball. For a trailer wiring harness I recommend the Hopkins Tail...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2013 Toyota Matrix
  • If you want to go with a Class II hitch for your 2013 Toyota Matrix you can use # C12228. A Class II hitch still has a 1-1/4 inch receiver though so if you have a bike rack with a 2 inch shank that you wanted to use you would still need an adapter. But with a Class II hitch you can carry more than 2 bikes. If you need to carry more than 2 bikes I recommend going with the Curt hitch listed above and a Class II compatible bike rack such as the Saris Glide EX # SA774. This bike rack can...

  • Can a 2010 Honda Element EX 4WD be Flat Towed Behind an RV/Motorhome
  • According to my research, the 2010 Honda Element is flat towable as is. You will still want to consult the vehicle owners manual for any additional specific information on towing the vehicle. Roadmaster does offer a set of base plates for the 2010 Element, except for SC models. The base plate kit I would recommend is the Roadmaster XL Style Kit, part # 1541-3. Roadmaster has a large offering of tow bars as well. I have added a link to the options compatible with XL style base plates. You...

  • Trailer Hitch And Hanging Bike Carrier Recommendations For 2005 Honda Element AWD
  • For your 2005 Honda Element AWD, I did some online research, and the manual states it has a towing capacity of 1500 lbs. When considering a trailer hitch, the recommended tongue weight limit is typically around 10 per cent of the towing capacity. That would mean your Element should have a tongue weight capacity around 150 lbs. Please keep in mind the weight of the carrier you choose added to the weight of any cargo you place on the carrier should never exceed the recommended tongue weight...

  • Replacement Installation Hardware for Valley Hitch 82580 for 2005 Honda Element
  • You are correct that Valley did go out of business. But since we do offer other hitch brands for your 2005 Honda Element you can use a hardware kit for one of those hitch products. You will want to verify the size of the hitch receiver opening; it will be either a 1-1/4-inch Class I or a 2-inch Class III size hitch. You need to use hardware for the class of hitch you have to ensure it has the required capacity. All currently-available hitches for your car are shown on the linked page. What...
