Today we are going to cover part number 4843DAT from Master Lock. This is our hitch alignment and vehicle back up camera. This is a very simple system to install on your vehicle. It takes no time to install. First off we will cover the components of it. Starting back here. This is one of the mounts. This will actually mount the monitor to the windshield of your truck. It also has a neat little clip that goes into the vents on your vehicle if you want to mount it there temporarily. And this is the power supply chord and this plugs into your 12 volt power supply and plugs into the side of the camera. And on the back part, the actual camera itself is this unit right here. This actually will mount to the back of your vehicle on the trunk
And you can move the camera as you need it to put your hitch ball into view and you can back up your hitch ball to the trailer. It is powered by a 4-pole flat on your vehicle. So to power the camera on the back, all you have got to do is turn on your running lights. You plug it in, mount the camera, and you are ready to go. And then this little mount here. This actually fits onto the camera itself. What this part does is it actually guides the camera and keeps it center if you actually install it into your receiver hitch. You just push it in all the way. And then you can install your favorite hitch lock in place. And all you have got to do next is take your 4-pole flat and plug it into the wiring harness in the trailer. To start the install process is really easy. Let us go ahead with our rear camera that has a built in magnet so it sticks right to the truck.
Aim the camera right at the ball and then take your wiring harness with your adapter and just plug it into the 4-pole flat on your vehicle. Next we will go ahead and mount your monitor. You have got two different types of temporary mounting. One you have that sticks into the vent just like that and then your camera sits on top like that. We also have a windshield mount too. It is very sturdy and works really good. You can just go ahead and just put it on the inside of your windshield and push the lever down. And then you can install your camera. And really, all that remains, is go ahead and plug up the power chord. And then the power chord will go into the 12 volt power supply on your vehicle. Next we go through the functions on the camera. It actually has four different channels. And that is the control by the button on top. You push it. You will go through different channels and that is that takes care of that. The second button here on this model actually is not used at all. And then the last two buttons here , brightness and contrast. And it just cycles through until you get the combination that you like. Okay, we will go ahead and use this in typical application of backing up to a trailer. Then you can see how helpful it is to use. Turn on our running lights and our picture comes on our monitor and we just back up to our trailer. And then the adapter here has an extension for the 4-pole trailer. And just plug it right together. We have power for our lights and our trailer. Okay, and with that, that finishes our review with part number 4843DAT from Master Lock.
