This is what the SMI Stay-IN-Play Duo looks like when it's installed on your vehicle. As you can see, there's really not much to see once it's installed in the vehicle. There's only a few components on the inside that need to be installed. First up, this is our G-Force Controller. This is the actual brains of the operation. This senses how hard you're hitting the brakes because it uses inertia. This is also activated by your brake signal on the RV.
Today on our 2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen we'll be installing a Curt Upgraded Circuit Protected Tail Light with Converter Hardwire Kit with a 4-Pole Flat End part number 56146KIT.

When we want to use our wire connector we just have to have it out like that. Now, when we're done towing our trailer all we have to do is just open up our hatch again, tuck our wire down here in the inside and we can close our compartment back and it's nice and hidden. All right, we'll begin our installation here by opening the hatch of our vehicle. Now, we will gain access to our taillight connectors.

This hitch is rated for 200 pounds max tongue weight and 2000 pounds max trailer weight. It utilizes your standard 1/2" diameter hitch pin hole here. You can see our safety chain loops are very easily accessible here, and you can even use the smallest diameter safety chains on there without any problem.
