The 2015 Subaru WRX EcoHitch

At Torklift Central we love to hear comments from our customers about products, especially when they are about the EcoHitch. With a 100% no-drill installation, designed specifically to enhance the contours of the 2015 Subaru WRX and made from recycled materials, we take great pride in our EcoHitch family. But there are also unexpected uses and benefits of the EcoHitch for the Subaru WRX, which “pgwipeout”, aka Peter Geis, found out when he shared his experience on Twitter.

Below is a short article on our discussion with Peter on Twitter about his Subaru WRX EcoHitch as well as some facts about the EcoHitch itself.

Peter using the EcoHitch in a unique way

We love seeing the interesting and unique ways people use their Subaru WRX hitch. We have seen it used for bike racks, cargo trays, towing a small trailer and more. But we have never seen the EcoHitch used to carry a large basket! With the unique and tucked up design of the EcoHitch, carrying the basket is a breeze but it also has another advantage. Peter stated that he had another “unexpected benefit, I don’t need to spend on a rear cross brace, your hitch does a terrific job at stiffening the rear end.” 

We wanted to ask you Peter… are you planning on carrying this….

A basket of baby chickens?

Or a basket with a kitten?

Our EcoHitch is designed to meet stringent national safety standards and complement the aerodynamic contours of your car so that it doesn’t slow you down in any kind of driving condition. Unfortunately, driving conditions aren’t always the best and accidents do happen. A week after installing his EcoHitch, Peter’s WRX was hit at a stop sign and it shifted the entire rear of the car. But, there is some good news…

Glad everything is ok and there wasn’t a lot of damage

Peter later goes on to say that the EcoHitch “held up beautifully. Only minor body damage and slight warping of the suspension’s alignment.” We’re so glad that Peter was unharmed and that our EcoHitch was able to help prevent further damage to his Subaru WRX. Even though our hitches are made to be eco-friendly, they are made from aerospace grade aluminum, stainless steel and steel so they are made to be strong. Currently the EcoHitch is manufactured to be 38 pounds and is overbuilt to withstand any additional weight that customers may use with it. This assures peace of mind for the consumer that their hitch will never fail, as it showed with Peter’s fender bender. Below are some other great features of the EcoHitch for the 2015 Subaru WRX.
