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.

I purchased this product about two weeks ago. The reason I got it is to get a trailer hitch bike rack for my sedan. Things to know about this hitch. - If you are going to use it with a bike rack this hitch does not require the stabilizing strap which is great -This hitch does not requires to cut into the bottom of the bumper which was needed with the other hitch for my car. - It took me about two and half hours to install it, since i did it by my self. The hardest part was to get the hitch in place to bolt it to the frame. The most time consuming part was trying to figure out how to get the first bolt and metal plate in place and once that was done the other 3 went in much faster. Online instructions and the videos that they have helped a lot. -Be aware of the hitch weight limit of 200LBS which can be a problem if you are planning to carry an Ebike as they tend to be pretty heavy. -I have a low car and i was worried about ground clearance and it didn't change at all for me. The same goes for the length of the vehicle as the hitch does not extent past the bumper and that lets me keep parking my car in the garage as i was doing before. 507764

The hitch has work better than I thought. I have not had any issues at all and I wish I had done it earlier. The main use is to attached my bike rack to it and it takes me less that ten minutes to get the bike on the car and that includes taking the car out if the garage and installing the bike rack. I can honestly say that I will get one of this things for my next car without doubt I need to add that I have a 2014 Mazda 3 sport. Sedan.

This hitch went onto my car super easily, the included instructions were fantastic, and I've used it to haul all manner of stuff with my little landscape trailer. The included bolt-threading tools and clever way the hitch bolts to the car made the install a piece of cake. I did it myself in my driveway in about an hour. 704337

Customer service was great. They were very helpful and gave me all the info I needed to pick the right hitch. Shipping was fast. Installation was a breeze (and FAR easier than I anticipated!). This was a no brainer of a deal and I would have no hesitation about ordering from etrailer again or recommending them to anyone. 686481

Installing the Draw-tite hitch on my girlfriend's cute 2014 Mazda 3 was a breeze after studying the videos. No need to remove the muffler or raise up the car at all. After having the mounting bolts in place using the handy wires and resting the hitch on about 8" of wood blocks, my girlfriend helped in keeping the hitch steady while I bolted it onto the car. It took us about 25 minutes in all. Then came the wiring nightmare. The first part involving the connectors to the car's tail lights was fast and simple. The second part which involved sneaking the included power wire out of the trunk, through the car, then through the engine firewall and into the engine compartment was enough to drive a good man bad. Honestly, especially when meaning to only tow a small trailer with about four lights on it, is it really necessary to go directly to the battery as a power source??? And I wasn't about to run the power wire along the underside of the car. Anyway, after spending about an hour trying to figure out how I was going to sneak the supplied power wire through the engine compartment firewall, I got out my drill, picked a drill bit slightly wider that the wire, bore a hole on the driver's side and into the engine compartment, hooked the wire to the battery using the supplied wired fuse, sealed the drilled hole with the supplied black silicone sealant, put the car back together, and finally was done. As I wrote, installing the hitch took 25 minutes to complete. Installing the wiring was a four hour drama I'm so relieved to be done with I'm having a double shot of rum in my rum punch, and after that I'm having another one. I'm giving this four stars because after all that install time the trailer lights work just fine. I just wish the install hadn't wound up being such a nightmare. 662198

The hitch receiver fit perfectly and was simple to install. Nothing had to be cut or moved on the 2018 Mazda 3 for the receiver to be bolted to the rear frame rails. The only issue was there were a couple of places where there was no paint. The metal was clean and the unpainted part wouldn't be seen. I just sprayed it with some clear I had on hand to keep it from rusting. 637717

One year ago this car hitch arrived and installed without a hitch! As always, a main concern was whether it would really fit our car model, and it did. For ease we had it installed at our local garage, with no problems at all. We pre-placed the bolts thru the holes so the job went quickly at the shop. The hitch is solid, we would definitely order another in the future. Also, we have placed a few orders thru etrailer and every order and product has been prompt and reliable. And we appreciate the 1-year follow-up seeking our opinions. Thank you etrailer. 616209

Shipped and arrived promply. Installed on my 2014 Mazda 3 Sedan. Had no problem installing without lowering exhaust. Read instructions prior and look under car at attachment location as many times as needed until you have a clear vision of the install. I used a plastic storage container that stood about 8". This allowed me to sit hitch on top and move in position once guide wires and bolts were in position and install without help. Everything went smoothly, finished in about 50 minutes. Excellent product. 505175

Works as advertised on my 2018 Mazda3 sedan. Only had it installed a couple days so far. Installation was relatively easy - I did it myself in 1 hr. I ended up coating this with truck bed product by Rustoleum as an added layer of protection before I mounted it. I'm interested to see how it holds up through Midwest winters. I selected this hitch primarily because it was lighter weight than others and was on par with pricing. 493998

Holding up well after one year or use. I only use this for 2-bike platform style rack a couple times a week.

This trailer hitch worked out fantastic for us on our Mazda 3! It was shipped quickly, the installation instructions were easy to understand, they provided some special tools to make it easier and the installation took me less than an hour. We've used the hitch several times with a bike rack and small utility trailer...works great! We saved over $200 versus the cost of having a local company install a hitch. We also liked that it is pretty well hidden so it doesn't detract from the look of the car. 429021

Draw-Tite receiver hitch installed on a 2017 Mazda 3. To be used only for a platform bike rack. Instillation was very easy, although having another person to assist holding the hitch in place when starting the nuts would be helpful. That being said, it took 20 minutes to install, everything lined up, no need to move the exhaust system or any wiring. Highly recommend this product. 387259

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Comparing Curt and Draw Tite Hitches for 2018 Mazda 3
  • For your 2018 Mazda 3 we have Curt and Draw Tite hitches available. I recommend the Draw Tite hitches over the Curt hitches as they don't require the use of a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. So if you have a hatchback you'd want the Draw Tite part # 24914 or if you have a sedan you'd want the # 24912 instead.

  • Close, however the correct Draw-Tite hitch for a Mazda 3 Sedan is part # 24912. This hitch will work on models with or without LED Lights. The other hitch, part # 24914, fits the hatchback models, and is shaped differently than the sedan model. I've included a few help articles about picking the right hitch and one of the most common uses of a hitch, how to pick a bike rack.

If you do decide to tow you need to start with a trailer hitch, either the Draw-Tite # 24912 if your '18 Mazda 3 is a sedan or the Draw-Tite # 24914 if your Mazda is a hatchback; these are the best option because they will be the easiest to install.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for Mazda 3 to Carry Motorcycle
  • For your 2014 Mazda 3 GT, there are only Class I trailer hitches available. The Class I trailer hitches are only capable of a 200 lb tongue weight, so you will not be able to use a motorcycle carrier like # UF48-979033 or similar you have pictured. You will need to use a trailer for your sport bike to haul behind your vehicle. My recommendation for your vehicle is to start with the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24912. Then use ball mount # 3593 and hitch ball # 19258. Then for your trailer...

  • Spacers Appear To Be Different From Spacers In Instructions Drawing For Hitch On 2014 Mazda 3

The spacers are designed to keep the bolt from slipping through the frame rail when installing. The shape of the spacer may have changed a little but the function remains the same. If the carriage bolt is secure when pulled through the hole in the spacer and then through the frame rail you have nothing to worry about.

  • It sounds like the ball mount you are using with Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24912 on your 2014 Mazda 3 is actually a Class II ball mount. The hitch is a Class I which is why it has that safety stop in it. It is there to prevent installation of Class II accessories so you don't accidentally overload the hitch. For Class I trailer hitches, you have to use the ball mount specified by the hitch manufacturer. In this case it is # 3593. And when used with your hitch and vehicle it must be used...

  • Compatibility of Curt Class I # C11377 and Swagman Trailhead # S63360 on 2014 Mazda 3 GT Sedan
  • The Curt # C11377 would indeed be compatible with your Mazda 3, but when Curt Class I hitches are used with non trailer loads like a bike rack, Curt's warranty requirements specify that a stabilizing strap like # 18050 be used. Rather than needing to fool with a strap, I'd recommend you go with the Draw-Tite # 24912 that has no such requirement. The Swagman Trailhead bike rack you referred to, part # S63360 would work great with the hitch.

Of the two I like the Draw-Tite because it doesn't requrie the support strap, part # 18050, when you're using the hitch to barry a bike rack or cargo carrier.
