Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2016 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms, part number BX1706. Here's what this base plate kit is going to look like once it's installed on the vehicle. The most noticeable things you'll see are going to be these convenience links out in front for the safety chains. This base plate kit's going to do a really good job of making sure that it's easy to hook your towed vehicle up to your motor home, so that way when you're ready to go, you just hook it up and you're ready to roll. You don't need to spend a bunch of time tightening bolts and getting everything set and square, but rather you hook it up and you go. This kit has the removable arms. In order to install these, you push them in, twist until they lock in place.


Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2011 Honda CR-V

Today on our 2011 Honda CR-V we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms, part number BX2246. Now here's what it's going to look like once it's installed. We've gone ahead and installed our breakaway switch for our braking system at the time we had the fascia off, but this does not come with it. It's going to fit nicely in our grill. The only thing you're going to need to cut out is a couple of the bars that drop across where our base plate lands. When it's not being used to hook our tow bar in place, we have these nice rubber covers to help keep dirt and grime out of the hole. When you're ready to tow it behind your RV, you're going to slide in your end, turn it and it'll snap into position.


Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Today on our 2014 Ford F-150, we'll be installing the Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit with removable arms, part number 4431-3. Here's what the base plate looks like installed. As you can see, it's a nice recessed look, goes right where the factory tow hooks are. If your truck doesn't have factory tow hooks, it still goes in the same location. You just have to do a little trimming of the bumper cover for the brackets to go into place. This base plate kit works on all models of F-150s and other EcoBoost models that don't have factory tow hooks. It sticks right underneath the licence plate here.


Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2016 Ford Taurus

Today on our 2016 Ford Taurus we'll be installing the Blue Ox Base Plate kit, with removable arms. Part number BX2643. All right here's what our baseplate looks like now that it's been installed and our bumper cover is back on. You can see it's a nice clean look, the removable arms tuck up nicely behind our bumper cover here. One part we really have sticking out is our safety chain attachment points here. Now when we're not behind our RV, and we're not being flat towed, the baseplate comes with these plugs that you can insert where the removable arms go, and that will keep any dirt and debris from entering there and making it difficult for the arms to go into place. When you are ready to hook up to your RV, you just simply grab the plugs, put them inside your cupholder or your glovebox, take your removable arms, insert the more horizontally legs up.


Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2016 Chevrolet Sonic

Technician : Today in our 2016 Chevrolet Sonic we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Blue Ox base plate kit with removable arms, part number BX1703. Here's what this base plate's going to look like once it's installed in on the vehicle. As you can see, everything's pretty well flush to the front fascia here. The things that stick out the most are the safety chain connection points and they're just a little bit out past this license plate here. Not terribly noticeable, so overall it's going to help maintain a pretty clean look to the front of the vehicle when not being towed. This base plate bolts onto the outside of the frame rails at the front of the vehicle just behind the front bumper. Then it comes across and comes out here through this lower grill, therefor it's a really easy access point and it's going to be really good to be functional to be able to tow your vehicle behind your motorhome. It does feature the removable arms so when you're ready to tow, simply slide them into place, push in and turn until it locks into place.


Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2012 Cadillac SRX

Today on our 2012 Cadillac SRX, we'll be installing a Blue Ox base plate kit with removable arms, part number BX1690. The base plate will connect to your tow bars and allow it to be pulled down the road with your RV. Hardly anything sticks out at all. When we want to actually hook up, we take our removable arms, we stick them in horizontally with this tab. Push it in and rotate it and it holds it in place. It's the same on the other side.


Blue Ox Base Plate Installation - 2011 Chevrolet HHR

Today in our 2011 Chevrolet HHR, we are going to be taking a look at, and also showing you how to install the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with removable arms. Part number is the BX1692. Alright, here is what our base plate kit is going to look like installed; you can see we have got our removable arms in place here. It is a really clean look; most of it is hidden up behind the fascia area of the vehicle. To remove our arms, we will just pull out on the pin, rotate them, and slide them out. Then we have got protective caps that are going to slide in there, and keep the dirt and debris and stuff out of there.


Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Today on our 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, we'll be installing a Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with removable arms. Part number BX1126. Here's what our base plate looks like once it's installed. As you can see, it hangs right below the bumper, and looks as though it was factory installed. Here in the center is a mounting point for a wiring harness connection. We have two loops on either side of the base plate to attach our safety cables to. These points are where our removable arms go to, so we can attach our tow bars to it. We'll insert it horizontally and twist it, and it will lock into place.


Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2009 Honda CR-V

Sedan 2009 Honda CRV. We're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Blue Ox Baseplate kit with removable arms. Part number is VX2246. Now we're going to be connecting the CRV to a 2014 Forest River Solera, this is on a Mercedes chassis. Here's what our baseplate's going to look like installed in the vehicle. As you can see it's going to come through the already open area down here, leaving us very little trimming to do on our fascia. Just hit these edges here on the side a little bit.
