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.

Well, to begin, I am 74 years old and my wife is 70. This was a project for both of us. It took about an hour and a half. Most of the time was figuring. The fit was perfect. The directions were a little hard but the online video was great. The most difficult part was removing the exhaust brackets, but we got it. The hitch looks good on my 2015 Trax and I hope it will give us years of use. Now for the electrical: Again the TouTube video was great. If not for that, I would have sent it back. One I got the back end of the car torn out, the wires plugged right in. Very easy hook-up. I am sure glad my wife was gone for this part. About an hour and a half for this but a lot of time spent watching video to see how to take the car apart. No fault of e-trailer. Its just how cars are made. Than you etrailer. This is my 4th hitch from you and probably my last. Keep up the good work.

First, I can't say enough good things about the customer service and web site. My hitch was delivered exactly when expected. The box did have a couple of holes in it, but there was no damage to the hitch. All parts needed to install were included, plus a couple of extras, which is always appreciated. I installed this by myself, and watched the video (which featured a 2019 Buick Encore like mine) enough times that everything seemed very familiar when I started on the work. Since I was working alone, I also went over the process in my mind to think of anything that could go wrong, and how to prevent it. I used the tips that I found on the web site (such as taping the driver's side wedge to the end of a paint stirring stick), and came up with one of my own. Working alone, I was concerned that I might accidentally push one of the carriage bolts back up into the frame after the fish wire was removed. I used a large paper clip to wrap around each bolt near the frame, which grabbed the threads and held the bolts in place while I finger tightened the nuts. I left enough of each paper clip sticking out so I could pull them out with pliers before I tightened everything up. Everything went as promised, with all holes matching up exactly. The installation looks great, took me about an hour, and now I'm trying to decide on a platform bike carrier to purchase (from etrailer.com of course).


Comments
A year in and both the hitch and the Kuat bike carrier also purchased from etrailer.com have been great. Both still look good and perform as I had hoped.

The product is what I had expected. The packaging was damaged and the product was outside of the box when received. There was some paint scrape due to the packaging damage. There was also one edge of the hitch that appeared to have been hit by something prior to packaging that had paint damage, metal shards and small gouging. Does not appear that anything will affect the functional integrity of the hitch. I have not yet installed this product so I can't offer comment on the ease of installation but hope it is as simple as it appears.

Super Easy! Watched the video 3 times before I started and had all the hardware and tools ready. Took 45 minutes start to finish by myself, hardest part was putting it into place but used a jack to hold up the driver side while I started the passenger side and it worked like a champ. Couldn't be happier! Thanks guys!

I have been really pleased with this purchase and would have no qualms about purchasing again. Solid construction and the paint is holding up nicely. I did order a rubber hitch cap to help keep road debris out of the hitch when not in use. I think that was worthwhile. My mechanic did say that he had a little trouble installing the hitch, but I think he skipped watching the installation video. I thought the video was really helpful and was tempted to install this myself. Unfortunately, I didn't have ramps or a jack that I trusted. Anyway, the hitch is great and etrailer remains my store of choice for stuff like this

Amazing product that arrived in 4 days with great support and that I was able to install myself rather easily. This is after both a Chevy dealer and Uhaul both told me that I can't install a trailer hitch on a Track. As my pics show, I beg to differ!

We purchased 4 items: the trailer hitch, adaptor to fit our 2 inch bike rack, anti rattling devise and a lock so we don't loose the bike with the rack. Customer service was outstanding in recommending each product that would specifically fit my Buick Encore. I will submit a picture since I didn't see anything posted for the 2019. Buick would have cut the bottom of the bumper which I assume would lift the rack a bit higher. Our bike rack is really meant for a larger vehicle. The Buick rack would most likely be a bit smaller. I have bottomed out on the rack, not the hitch. Overall, it's worked out well and we're able to carry our bikes.

Having never installed a trailer hitch before, the video and instructions were spot on and incredibly helpful. Hitch is still as solid after a year as the day I installed it. I've towed a uhaul trailer full of furniture with no issues, this hitch is great, I would buy another in the future.

Directions well thought out and easy to follow. The threaded spring wires to weave the hardware into the frame rail worked brilliantly. Product fit was excellent so I could install alone with just a floor jack. Hardest part was running the power wire from the battery through the firewall wirebundle and under the drivers door sill plastic to the back of the car Well done will recommend to everyone.

Nice and solid trailer hitch. Needed a couple inexpensive tools in order to complete the job. Always make sure to watch the installation video. Makes the job so easy. This is the second trailer hitch I’ve installed. Always quick deliver and great products at a good price.

The fit is EXACT ! Install was easy ! The entry to my garage has a slight incline so backing the car in to the point of greatest floor clearance at the rear bumper allowed for enough ground clearance to work without the need to raise the vehicle. Most difficult part was removing the rubber muffler hangers. Install the 4 bolts, torque to specs, slip the rubber muffler mounts back in place and it's done ! My install time was 30 minutes. Watching the install video is an excellent idea as it shows everything that needs to be done and how to do it.

The trailer hitch was easy to install. The video make it very easy to follow the directions. The box was damaged but no scratches on the paint. Very pleased with the product and the looks on the car. The trailer hitch will be used for a bike rack holder.

Positive Review: This is my first time reviewing online something that I bought. I am doing so because it exceeded my expectations. I am not a mechanic, but I was able with my daughter to put a hitch on her car. The instructions provided online and with the hitch, as well as all the parts, were complete and easy to follow. The product arrived timely and I can highly recommend buying from etrailer.com.

My trailer hitch is exactly what I expected, and I have been totally satisfied with my hitch. I pull a Yamaha Waverunner with my 2016 Buick Encore, and my hitch does a great job pulling it. I will definitely order from you again, if I need a hitch for another vehicle.

  • Largest Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2014 Buick Encore
    Though there is not a trailer hitch with a 2" receiver for your 2014 Buick Encore, there is a Class II, 1-1/4" hitch, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 36554. The fact it is a Class II is important because it will allow you the use of more accessories and has a larger tongue weight capacity (350 lbs) and towing capacity (3,500 lbs) than the other hitch that fits your car, the Class I Curt Trailer Hitch # C11527.
