Video Transcript for Blue Ox Base Plate Installation - 2010 Chevy HHR

There is a tab that you need to pull out and then pull down on the socket. It comes right apart. There is also a side marker light that is a little bit further up. We need to disconnect that one as well. To remove the fascia, grip it from behind and pull out towards you and up a little bit. And there is a tab that you have to push down here to release it as well. And this side here pulls away as well. It is a little bit tighter fit. Alright, and then repeat the same process on the passenger side. Now we need to remove the bumper structure which is this part right here and there are three bolts we have to remove. Now this top one we are going to leave in there with just a few threads. And we will go to the other side and repeat the same process. Then we will take the bolts off and remove the bumper structure. Now we can start installing the base plate itself. 2:14

The one thing you will note is on the 2010 models, they require this spacer right here. So this gets fit between the base plate and the frame structure. So what we are going to do is put everything together in one place. And how we are going to do that is actually just tape this spacer block to the base plate and then put all on one piece. At this point, it is a good idea to have an extra set of hands to help hold everything up while you mark the holes. Now we can go ahead and take down the base plate. We will start off by drilling a 1/8 inch pilot hole and then follow it up with our final size which will be a 13/32 drill bit. Next we are going to show you how the fasteners work. We will get our handle nut here. And you will also notice that we actually put an arch in here. That is because we will have to have room for the second handle nut to fit in right here because there are two holes in the bottom. Go ahead and install it into the frame. Make a couple of test runs before you put the actual base plate into place. You just slide it over the hole you are going to use. And then thread in the bolt. 3:17

Now we can go ahead and slide the base plate into place. It is probably a good idea to leave the spacers out. We always have enough wiggle room to tap those in later. We are just going to use a bolt to hold everything together. Now I took our handle nut and shortened it to make it a little bit easier to work around. We will just slide it underneath the wire of the first one. And for the final assembly, we will use a 3/8 bolt, the lock washer and we will use some red LocTite too. That is going to be part number LT37420. We will remove the first bolt and then install the lock washer and LocTite. We will go ahead and repeat the same process back over on the driver side. Now if you had to leave this off to install it, go ahead and reinstall the spacer. With those in place, now we can go ahead up our bolts from the bottom and torque them as specified in the instructions. And that way, that will hold the base plate in place firmly and we can use it as a template to drill out the rest of our holes. What we are going to do is use our final size bit and drill into it. We will use a pilot bit to go ahead and start off drilling. And then you will be drilling at a pretty good angle on some of them. Just make sure that your part of the drill here does not touch the radiator. 4:29

Now we will go ahead and start installing the hardware. We are going to start off by using our handle nut. We are just going to have to work it in a little bit. And then we can just use that to put the nut wherever we want. And on the bolt it will be the same as the ones that are on the bottom of the frame. Alright, once we have them all started, we can go ahead and tighten them up and torque them down as specified in the instructions. And we will go ahead and repeat the same process back over on the driver side. Once you have everything torqued down, you can take the extra ends of the handle nuts and go ahead and just break them off. Just work them back and forth or you can cut them. Now we will go ahead and install our safety cables. We will use a convenience link right here and this quick link. And we will just go ahead and install it. What we did is took our cable and we wrapped it around the sub-frame and back up to the link. And then give yourself some slack and then just run the link back together. With the passenger side done, we will repeat the same thing on the driver side. At this point, let us go ahead and give it a quick test fit of the fascia to see if we need to do any trimming or not for the tow bar. It looks like everything is good. So we will go ahead and put the bumper structure back into place and reinstall the fascia. We will go ahead and reconnect the lights from the side marker and the fog lights. And then we will go ahead and reinstall the rest of the fasteners for the fascia. Alright, now we will go ahead and install the tow bar attachment. There is a slot in there you just match up the attachment with the slot. Push it in and then twist. And it automatically locks into place. Alright, with that that will finish it for our install of part number BX1692.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms


First we want to rate etrailer service- it was excellent! Items arrived on time. The video on the web was very helpful & Blue Ox sent good instructions in the box. The installation went well, completed in 3 days. Couple of points on the instructions/install; On the bumper fascia you will have to do a LOT of trimming, and it's a matter of trying to get it back on, numerous times. Also once you finally get it trimmed to fit with base plate installed, snapping in the fascia is not easy, it's push & shove to get it back on. The only other issue is getting those hex nuts screwed into the bolts, there is very little room to work & you have to get the nut lined up EXACTLY before the screw will fit. We painted the one side of it white to see it through the drilled holes better, you will also need someone to hold a flashlight while the other person tries to get it bolted on. Then you have to be ready to put the locktite on before the nut slips out of place. Patience, patience, patience!!! Luckily my husband has lots of it - he read & reread the instructions before he started-had all his tools lined up & then went to it - I just kept my mouth shut & held the flashlight & helped him with the bumper fascia. He is out in the garage now installing the wiring harness. We had to wait to order the receiver hitch (10") until the base plate was installed & we could line it up with our RV & figure the difference (2012 Chevy Equinox). We live in Prescott AZ & hope to leave for a trip to the Grand Canyon & Santa Fe New Mexico in about a week. 73518

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms


Great base plate - -super service from etrailer. Couple of hints, at least for install on a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited: 1) the phillips push pins that hold the belly pan on come out best with a light touch on the driver. I buggered up 2 figuring that out. 2) the plate seems to be too narrow to fit, but with a rubber mallet and some persuasion, it will. 3) Use a corded drill for the holes into the frame. My 19.2 volt didn't have the grunt to get it done even with swapping out batteries repeatedly. 4) Directions don' t say anything about how to level the plate after the first (lower) bolt is in, but probably best to have it level or even slightly angled down or away from the grill (gives better clearance for the electric connection below the license plate frame). Wish the electrical connection had black spring return for the cover and the screws to mount it were black. Also wish Blue Ox didn't put a white part number label and the orange warning label on the FRONT, visible section of the plate. Why not the back? I installed it myself. Took half a day and 2 scraped knuckles, but not to tough of a job with the right tools. My third or fourth purchase from etrailer and all have been quick, reasonably priced, marked by good communication and respectful. Works for me! Thanks etrailer! 41767

This installation obviously was not a Bolt in Ready unit, but still installed with little difficulty. The biggest obstacle was trying to figure out exactly how much to cut and where, then figure out exactly where to Base plate was to go for proper hole drilling. The illustration was less than adequate, however through process of elimnination it is on. 58299

It is still working great and I am confident I will many years of use from it. I have used etrailer for my towing needs ffor over 10 years and it has always been a good experience. I intend to use etrailer in the future.

The base plate installation was easy to install after getting everything removed that is necessary to get the existing tow hooks removed. I had a similar base plate on a 2008 Silverado that I had also installed so was almost the same. The photos in the Installation booklet could be a bit more clear. Had a hard time making out some of the details there so wnet to the Blue Ox website and opened the Instalation PDF there and photos were easier to see. Overall was what I was expecting and very satisfied 110844

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms


This baseplate is very well made and sturdy. I would rate it excellent but for 2 flaws: 1. My vehicle has a power steering cooler which the instructions say to relocate on the supplied brackets. Relocating as instructed puts excessive strain on the connecting hoses. I had to cut the pipes and add about 3 inches of rubber hose to the power steering cooler to make it fit comfortably. 2. Blue Ox do not provide any kind of support outside office hours. This type of product is typically installed by the user over a weekend and BO should provide support to their customers during this time. Overall, I would rate ease of install at 5 (out of 10) excluding the cooler issue. Hook up to the completed baseplate is a breeze. We have the Aventa II towbar which takes about 2 minutes to connect. 108372

Installation on the Jeep Wrangler was very easy. All the directions were clear and accurate. I Remove the valance under the bumper, disconnect the Fog Lights, remove the 8 bolts under the bumper, and remove the front bumper. I used a 4' board and a floor jack to balance and lift the base place. the base plate was a very snug fit and need a little tap with a mallet to align and level. The Nuts with long wires welded to them were great in easing the installation. I spent more time looking for a 17/32 drill bit which I could not find that anything. A 1/2" worked find. The only help I need was marking the valance, I aligned and held in place while my wife mark both sides. 24574

I recently purchased a Blue Ox baseplate BX2246 from etrailer.com. The installation went well, the instructions were clear and the photographs exceptional. As you know part number 62-3468, attachment assembly, SF/SB R connects and may be removed from to the weldment base plate. The installation or towing instructions would be best if they included a photo and details for connecting and removing that part by users when not in use as the nose extends beyond the vehicle frame when the5 vehicle is not towed. Special attention shown to the connection and safety pin locking. Simple for many but not for all. Thank you. 116914

Item installed as advertised. Installation tips: 1. Make sure you install all the attachment bolts finger tight to insure base plate alignment to the vehicle frame prior to torqueing them tight. 2. A powerful drill and sharp drill bits make installation much easier as you have to drill a few holes in the vehicles frame. The hardest hole to drill is the 1 1/2 inch hole in the frame for the attaching bolts to be installed. I used a 1 inch drill bit then a rotary file to enlarge the hole. My craftsman hole saw when dull almost immediately when I first started drilling this hole. 32234

Product was received incomplete with parts missing. Thank goodness for Etrailer. They contacted Blueox and had them send parts. I had asked that Blueox send them priority mail, since I had already waited almost 3 weeks due to the Mfg backlog, but instead they sent via ground and I had to wait yet another week. Blueox instructions were flawed and we had to make some modifications to car to allow installation. I am happy with Etrailer, but very disappointed with Blueox. This is my third installation, first two were great. 104533

installation on a 2011 jeep grand cherokee wasnt too bad. the instructions should have included a note on removal of the front fascia wheel well bolt clip. you have to pry the fascia over the bolt clip. it will not just pull off. i used a 90 degree drill attachment to drill the upper frame mounting plates. my jeep had the tow hooks from the factory. the base plates fit well. i had to trim the "opening" very little where the base plates come through the fascia. great customer support from bob and carla 99609

This Ox baseplate for my 2012 Ford F150 was received promptly and installation was very easy per the included instructions. I also installed the taillight wiring kit, but I was not at all happy with that. I would recommend a diode kit. Having to drill the 1" hole generated a lot of plastic pieces which were difficult to remove from the taillight housing. The bulb holders are not sealed, so I assume I will get crud in the taillight housing. 59404

Installed it myself on a Jeep Wrangler 2014. Installation when well, instruction were sufficient, took I'd say 3 hours from start to finish. HArdest part was the bumper removal. Base plate was welded good and paint job was good. It sure seems to be a solid base plate. Like the safety cables that it came with. Was a little tricky trying to do a nice cut on the plastic belly pan but if you take your time end result was great. 120431

Product works great and was easier to install than I anticipated, about three hours start to finish on our '08 Enclave. The directions need some tweaking, the steps are numbered out of order in a couple places and there are two screws on the outside of the front nose piece that are not mentioned in the directions that must be removed. They are inside the inner fender and mount vertically. Overall a great product though. 79041

The original bar was installed by me 3 years ago and it was a breeze. It operated perfectly and we never had a problem. The accident we had with the tow vehicle bent it so we ordered the new one.

According to Blue Ox, the BX2232 fits all Element with the exception of the SC models. The front fascia headlights and bumper cover are different on the SC models and it will not accommodate the Blue Ox base plates. The BX2232 has the detachamble tabs up higher than does Roadmaster, which is why the Roadmaster kits will work but the Blue Ox will not. Check out 1541-5 and 1541-3 from Roadmaster.

Installation would be easier if you start with MM wrenches and sockets, mine are far and few between. Having the correct drill bit would help also, I didn't. It took about 3 hours in total to remove the bumper, install and put the bumper back. With a little bit of help and the correct tools you can do it faster, hay, I'm an accountant after all. 105431

This is the 4th baseplate I have installed and definitely the hardest one to install because of drilling the 2 holes in the frame, One of the bolt wires was not welded properly but I have a welder so was able to fix it. With the 5 bolts on each side fastening the baseplate to the frame I think the safety cables are a bit of excessive safety wise. 85754

The instructions (#23) tell you to align the support bracket 1/4" from the bumper. When we drilled the holes we discovered that a nut could not be installed due too the lack of clearence with the frame rail end. This measurement should be 1/2". Other than this clearence problem the installation went fine. Very pleased with the Base Plate. 64285

I checked with Blue Ox and the kit you need for a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 is part BX1711. We do not currently have this part on our website, but I will submit the addition request today and it should be up in the next day or so. Hold onto this email so that you have the link.

Review from a similar Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms


We messed up the plastic screws on the dust cover, getting the lock washers on the bolts was tricky, we used a telescoping magnet with light to put them on. The wire on the nuts worked supper, all in all I like it very much. Thank you Larry 64295

Just finished installing product this afternoon, was able to use friends lift. Directions were well written and easy to follow. A little more information about cutting air dam would have been helpfull. Have not used product as of this time. 69007

Great product, installation installation instructions were thorough. Installation video which was for our vehicle was helpful, but had to drill some additional holes, guess it was due to model differences. But Blue Ox is a great product! 142393

I just ordered a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and it comes with front tow hooks. Do you have baseplatebrackets that will adapt to a Demco tow bar that has pins and about a 3/4 plate with hole.

We have one set of base plates available for 2014 Grand Cherokee, part BX1128 from Blue Ox. They list this kit as compatible with Blue Ox Aventa, Aladdin, Alpha and Allure tow bars. I gave Blue Ox a call and was informed that you will probably also need the BX88151 adapter. Do take a look at those adapters to be sure they will work with your tow bar. We have the instructions for those linked on the page so you can preview that as well.

These two companies (etrailer and BlueOx) as well as the product are both TOPS! Tolerances were with-in 1/8" inch. Easy and concise directions. One man- 4 1/2 hrs. basic wrench and drill job. Saved over $800. DIY project. 28181

Product was as advertized, installs easy. The best part is the shipping and customer service. I ordered the towbar late tuesday evening and it arrived before lunch on Friday. Thanks for the quick turnaround. Charles 100708

My third Blue Ox Base Plate. Fit and function are perfect. Fits my existing (first) tow bar and the tab height is nearly exactly the same as my 12 year older Jeep so didn't even need to make any draw bar changes. 111481

Ordered a base plate and Tow Daddy wiring harness for my Honda CRV on Sunday. Had it on Wednesday. Excellent service. The only negative was that they did not put someone in the box to help me install it. 120501

Installed with no problem. Have not as yet tried pulling the Honda with the motorhome. Note, if you need magnetic tow lights, be sure to order all at the same time to avoid seperate shipping charges. 120250

I bought this product because I have installed and used two other base plates by Blue-Ox and have always been highly satisfied with the design, installation instructions and ease of use of the product. 50792

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2007 Chevy HHR Behind a Motor Home
  • I looked up an online version of the owners manual for a 2007 Chevy HHR and found that it can be flat towed. It gives the following steps: First set the parking brake. Then turn the ignition key to ACC to unlock the steering wheel. Next shift into neutral. Then release the parking brake. You also have to pull fuse 8 from the floor console fuse block to prevent draining the battery. The manual also states to not exceed 65 miles per hour. Any time you ever have a flat towing question, you...

  • Recommendation For Base Plate Kit on 2011 Chevrolet HHR to Fit Demco Aluminator Tow Bar
  • I would recommend the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit, part # 3141-1, and the Roadmaster Base Plate Adapter, part # RM-033, to be able to use the Demco Aluminator tow bar on your 2011 Chevrolet HHR. You will also need the Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnect Kit, part # RM-201. This setup will allow you to flat tow your 2011 Chevrolet HHR with your Demco tow bar. To flat tow your HHR you will also need safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For safety cables I recommend the...

  • Torque Specifications and Grade of Hardware of Blue Ox # BX1692 Base Plate Kit for 2008 Chevy HHR
  • According to the installation instructions, the mounting bolts included with the BX1692 base plate kit are all grade 5. You can confirm this by looking at the head of the bolts. If the bolt has 3 hash marks on it, it is a grade 5 bolt. 6 hash marks would indicate a class 8 bolt. Page 1 of the instructions has a table on it listing the correct torque specs according to the diameter and grade of fastener. According to Blue Ox, only using one of the spacers mentioned in step # 5 of...

  • Parts Needed to Install the Blue Ox Patriot Portable Braking System in a 2011 Chevrolet HHR
  • You will not need any additional parts to install the Blue Ox Patriot Portable Braking System, # BRK2012, in your 2011 Chevrolet HHR. If you are using a tail light wiring harness that uses the vehicles tail lights and your brake lights come on when the ignition is off, then you will need a brake light relay, like part # RM-88400, which will prevent your vehicles brake lights from overriding the turn signals sent from the tow vehicle. To avoid needing a brake light relay, I recommend...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2007 Chevy HHR Behind a Motor Home with an Aventa Tow Bar
  • Yes, the Aventa tow bar is compatible with the Blue Ox base plates # BX1692 on your Chevy HHR. In addition to the tow bar and base plates, you will need safety cables, # BX88196, if you do not already have some. For lighting you can use a simple magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A. Or you can use a kit that plugs in line with the vehicle tail light wiring, # TM780039. It looks like you will need to pull fuses to flat tow your HHR. Check the owners manual to confirm.
