This product was recomended as an additional part for a Honda Pilot wiring kit but it was not useful at all. It did not even fit in the space behind the plug because the spare tire is in the way. This should be taken off the recommended accessory list for the trailer wiring kit.76543


This product is meant to be attached on the front side of aftermarket hitches. It should not be used on the back of the hitch. If it is an OEM hitch, there may not even be a way to properly attach it since many OEM hitches are integrated as the bumper structure.

This trailer connecting box mount fits well and holds securely My socket cover now sits under the bumper out of the elements. The previous mount I had held the connector at an angle, water built up and rusted the bottom 2 connectors. This one sits nice and level.65915

This mounting box was a bit more 'plastic-y' than I was expecting. And the hose-clamp was initially difficult to tighten up... but once I got it installed and tightened down, it was more sturdy than I was initially expecting. For the price, it seems like a good value.9412

Received it today. It would not install on my trailer as delivered, but with minor adjustments, I was able to set it up so it would work great.30361

  • 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mount for a 2003 Subaru Forester Hitch
  • I went out into our warehouse and measured the cross tubes of both the Curt # 12038 and the Draw Tite # 36311 and found that they have cross tubes that measure 2-1/2 inches by 1-1/2 inches. The 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box, part # 18156, could be installed onto one of these hitches, but I do not believe it is your best option as you would have to install the mount on the bottom of the cross tube. I would recommend you use a 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box for Round or
