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 Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Mazda CX-3

Speaker 1: Today on this 2017 Mazda CX3, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite class one trailer hitch receiver, part number 24933. Here's what our hitch looks like installed. One thing that's great about this hitch is that it's mostly concealed behind our rear fascia here, giving us a nice, clean, and factory-like appearance. On the side of our receiver you'll find our half-inch diameter hitch pin hole that we can use a pin and clip to secure hitch-mounted accessories. You can pick up a pin and clip on our website as part number PC2. Welded on the bottom of our receiver are rolled steel safety chain loops.

What's nice about these, even though this is a class one hitch and they are kind of small, we can still easily clip on a large diameter safety chain hook such as this one here.This hitch features a 200 pound max tongue weight rating, which is the amount forcing down, and a 2000 pound max gross trailer weight rating, which is the amount it can pull. You wanna make sure you consult with the owner's manual of your CX3 and not exceed what the vehicle's rated for. Go by whichever number is less.Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing your hitch mounted accessories. You're looking at about 11 1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the 1 1/4 receiver opening, and about four inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the back bumper. Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed.To begin our install, we're going to put a strap in place to help support the weight of our exhaust since we have to lower it.

I'm just gonna wrap ours on our axles here. If your CX3 is not all wheel drive, you can just go to your lower control arms and it'll do the same thing. Just put that right there, snug it up a little bit, and that'll hold the weight of our exhaust. On the side of our mufflers we'll find two exhaust hangers. We have the same on each side.

Spray a little lubricant on them so they'll slide off easier, then we'll use a pry bar to pry them off. We'll do the same on the other side.We're looking at the passenger's side of the frame rail now. On each side we'll find two 17 millimeter nuts. We need to remove both of these nuts on each side. Make sure we hang onto them because we will be reusing them.

We'll do the same on the other side. Now on each side by our exhaust cutout, we have a plastic push pin fastener that we need to remove. We'll use a flathead screwdriver or a trim panel tool and we'll work the center section down carefully, then we can pull out the whole clip. We'll do the same on both sides.Now before we raise our hitch up into position, we're gonna take our washers and place them over the studs. This will space out the hitch appropriately so it lines up properly. We'll do this on both sides of the vehicle. Now we'll raise our hitch up and we'll hang it over the studs. Okay, with our hitch on the studs now we will reinstall the factory nuts that we removed onto the studs. Now we'll take our carriage bolt and our block, place the carriage bolt onto the block, take this round holed spacer, we'll slide it between the hitch and our tow hook bracket here, take the bolt and go through the spacer, and it comes through the hitch. On our other side we'll take our conical tooth washer, the teeth will face the hitch, and we'll top it off with our nut. With all of our hardware in place, we can be in the process of tightening it down.It is helpful to use a deep well socket on the nuts above the hitch; that way you can easily get to them. Now we'll torque all of our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. Now we'll raise our exhaust back up and reinstall our hangers. And we'll remove our strap. And we'll reinstall the two clips that we're removed. And that completes our look at and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite class one trailer hitch receiver, part number 24933 on this 2017 Mazda CX3.

Still a great hitch! 1 yr later been used many times and is still hanging on pretty well! 665566

2016 Mazda CX-3

Overall the install went really well. it was a little tight but using different extensions worked. you will need the deep 17 socket. makes it much easier. I did not have to leave any trim pieces off either. I watched the video first which was a big help. I back the car up on the ramps and there was plenty of room to work. 561918

The order process was easy and the video on the web page, along with the pdf file downloaded installation instructions made the install a breeze for my mechanic. FYI, we ordered this hitch for a 2019 CX-3 and it fit perfectly. Customer service was great too, as I received several emails confirming my order and a follow up email. 545230

The trailer hitch for my Mazda CX-3 was delivered exactly as indicated. I was able to have it installed the following day. It will be used for my bike rack and a local U-Haul store was able to find which hitch was needed by using this website. 497341

LOVE that you do this. Very smart! The products worked great. I will say that install was super tricky due to the super tight space on the inside of the bumper. So any insights to help folks like me best navigate install is the only potential improvement I can think of. Other than that...awesome in all other respects. Love the quality and the customer service to date. So thanks for running a good business guys! 497168

Jameson and Donna P. were very helpful with my order. An item was out of stock and Donna quickly noticed this and ordered it directly from the manufacturer and updated my delivery date and my shipping address. Everything arrived on time and that was appreciated. Jameson answered my initial concerns and explained in detail what I would need to complete the job. Thanks to both and etrailer. I never realized there was so much to learn about towing a trailer, but they made it easy to learn. 403175

Quick shipped, installed on my CX-3 in about 30mins. Looks good, works great for my bike rack. 390103

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • What Supports Bumper Fascia After Curt Trailer Hitch is Installed on a 2016 Mazda CX-3
  • With Curt hitch # C11418 installed on a 2016 Mazda CX-3 the lower fascia is still attached elsewhere on the vehicle and it will also be resting on top of the hitch receiver. There isn't room to replace the brackets that were removed to install the hitch. It does not appear to be an issue with Draw-Tite hitch # 24933 and I have linked that video for you as well. 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...

  • Best Looking Trailer Hitch for 2018 Mazda CX-3
  • Between the two hitches that fit your 2018 Mazda CX-3 the Curt, part # C11418, is tucked under the rear bumper by about an inch more than the Draw-Tite, part # 24933. Although I feel like the Curt is still more obvious to the eye because it has the thick outer collar around the receiver opening. I've attached pictures of them both installed so you can see the difference. Additionally, a hitch that sits closer to the bumper's edge is generally considered better for bike racks so the...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2019 Mazda CX-3
  • We do have trailer hitches to fit your 2019 Mazda CX-3 that are similar to the part # 90092 that you referenced. The available hitches for the 2019 CX-3 are the 1-1/4-inch size like # 90092 but they are lighter-duty Class I hitches. There are not any Class II hitches for your car. The available Class I hitches are Draw-Tite # 24933 and Curt # C11418. Between these two I recommend the USA-made Curt # C11418 because it will be easier to install. A video and the instructions both are...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit Recommendation for a 2017 Mazda CX-3
  • Officially we have to recommend that you always stay with the recommendation of the manufacturer on towing as they are who the warranty of the vehicle is with and they are who would have tested the vehicle for towing. That being said we realize that a lot of people ignore their owners manual and tow with vehicles that aren't designed for it and allegedly do not have any problems. So our hitch manufacturers make hitches for these vehicles as there is a demand for them but it's a situation...

  • Curt or Draw Tite Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Mazda CX-3 for Bike Rack
  • For a bike rack the Draw Tite part # 24933 is the better choice as Curt requires a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 with their Class I hitches when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. You'll be much happier with the Draw Tite over the Curt.

  • Comparison of Curt or Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver for Carrying Bikes on a 2016 Mazda CX-3
  • Both the Curt # C11418 and Draw-Tite # 24933 trailer hitch receivers install into the same location as each other on your 2016 Mazda CX-3. However, the Draw-Tite does not require the use of the support strap # 18050 like the Curt does. Both racks are Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitch receivers so I doubt you will have a much different ride using the Draw-Tite instead of the Curt. Have you tried an anti-rattle device on the bike rack? If you can tell me the make and model of the bike rack...

  • Recommended 2-Bike Rack on a Mazda CX-3 with Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I do have some options for you, however the Yakima Ridgeback 2 # Y02457 will not work on your Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24933 because it's a class I trailer hitch and the Ridgeback 2 fits class II and larger. Both class I and class II hitches are 1-1/4 inches, but as you realized they are not identical. For a great class I hitch mount bike rack the Kuat Beta # B202-114 is a great choice. It has an anti-wobble hand-knob which makes it easier to tighten to the hitch receiver by hand instead...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Adapter for 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch on 2018 Mazda CX-3
  • There is not a 2 inch hitch receiver available for your 2018 Mazda CX-3, so to make your Kuat Bike Rack compatible, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24933

  • Concealed Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Mazda CX-3
  • When Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24933 is installed only the receiver will be showing on your 2016 Mazda CX-3. I have included a picture from the instructions showing he hitch installed for you. 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 I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch.

  • Do Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches Require a Stabilization Strap Like Curt Hitches for a 2016 Mazda CX-3
  • Curt is the only manufacturer that requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050. No other manufacturers require it though you can still use it if you want to. The idea is that the strap reduces some of the stress on the hitch. Uhaul hitches are just rebranded hitches from other hitch manufacturers so it is a Draw-Tite or a Curt too. Any accessory you put in a hitch is going to move. This is because the shank of the accessory has to be a little smaller than the receiver opening so...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 2018 Mazda CX-3 that Has Draw Tite Hitch
  • With Class I hitches like the Draw Tite part # 24933 that you referenced you have to use the ball mount that the hitch manufacturer requires which in this case is the Draw Tite part # 3593. Then for hitch balls you'd want the part # 19258 for a 2 inch ball or part # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. You'll want trailer wiring too which for that the Tekonsha kit part # 118718 is the kit I recommend as it installs easily and has a very reliable converter box.

  • Compatibility of a Thule Doubletrack Pro with a Class I Hitch on a 2017 Mazda CX-3
  • The Thule Doubletrack Pro, part # TH9054 is a useable rack for a Class I Draw-Tite Sport Frame, part # 24933 . The rack weighs 35 pounds and has enough clearance to go past the rear bumper. I've included a video of the rack on a similar 2013 Mazda CX-5 so you can get an idea of what it looks like installed.

  • Compatibility of Brophy HT5R Hitch Adapter with 2-Inch Bike Carrier on 2016 Mazda CX-3
  • Hitch adapters can sometimes be handy for a quick-fix, but since your 2016 Mazda CX-3 can only accept a light-duty 1-1/4-inch hitch I really cannot recommend using any type of hitch adapter. Here's why. Any type of adapter, such as the Brophy # HT5R, will cost you half of your hitch's rated capacity. So a 200-lb-rated Class I hitch like my recommended Draw-Tite # 24933 will have only a 100-lb capacity if used with the Brophy adapter. The reason for this loss of hitch capacity is that...

  • Which Bike Racks are Compatible with Class I Hitches for 2016 Mazda CX-3
  • Sounds like you have a Class II bike rack by Yakima and would like to install it in the Draw Tite hitch part # 24933 which is a confirmed fit for the 2016 Mazda CX-3. Nearly all Yakima 1-1/4 inch hitches are Class II only so there's no way I can recommend a hitch that would work with your bike rack since all of the hitches for your vehicle are Class I. Only solution would be to go with a bike rack that is Class I compatible. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed...

  • 2016 Mazda CX-3 Hitch Recommend and Explanation on How Many Bikes Class I Hitch can Carry
  • Class I hitches can only carry up to 2 bikes on a bike rack. The problem is that additional bikes puts more weight on the hitch, but what really is the problem is the location of the weight. The additional bikes end up being so far away from the hitch that the weight gets basically multiplied due to the leverage of the distance. It is kind of like when you are changing a car tire and the lugs are really tight. If you use an extended breaker bar, it is easier to loosen the lug nuts. The...

I am not sure which Swagman bike rack you have, but the bike racks we have made by Swagman like the Trailhead, part # S63360 has a measurement of 11 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the bike carrier. The Titan, part # S63400 has a distance of 11-1/4 inches, and both of these would work great for you....

For that you would want the part # 24933 that is confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. The Freedom is a great bike rack that is lightweight that I know you will like.

  • The bottom of the receiver portion of trailer hitch # 24933 for your 2017 Mazda CX-3 will be approximately 9-1/2 inches up from the ground. There are some parts of the vehicle that hang a bit lower on the vehicle itself but as far as at the end of the CX-3 the hitch will be the lowest point. 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 I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack,...

  • Best Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Mazda CX-3
  • The best bike rack style is a hitch mounted option so for your 2019 Mazda CX-3 you'll need to install a hitch first like the Draw Tite part # 24933 which is best option as it doesn't require a stabilizer strap like the equivalent Curt does for your vehicle. Now the easiest to use bike racks are platform racks as they are much easier to load then trying to fit the frame of your bike over the arms of a hanging rack. Typically the big drawback to platform racks is the weight but we have...
