Blue Ox Base Plate Installation - 2010 Ford Escape
Today on our 2010 Ford Escape, we're going to review and install the Blue Ox Base Plate with removable arms, part number BX2605. Here's what our base plate will look like once it's installed. To use our base plate, we'll simply remove the plastic cups that go into the receiver tubes when it's not in use. Then we can take our removable arm, slide it into the receiver tube until the detente pin is depressed and rotate it until it locks into position. Same thing here on the other side. Then once we're finished towing our vehicle, we want to take out the removable arms, we'll simply pull back on the detente pin and rotate it to unlock. We can put our plastic cups back into the receiver tube, to help keep that dirt, dust and debris out of the receiver tube. A couple of the really nice features about our base plate is how easy it is to install and equipped with it, our chain hold downs, or cable hold downs on each side.

Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2011 Honda Pilot
Today on our 2011 Honda Pilot we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Blue Ox baseplate kit with the removable arms. This is part number BX2251. Now we've got our attachment points. These are the removable arms. As you can see, there's a little spring-loaded pin here that's going to offer us a little resistance here as we slide it in. We'll push in and rotate until that clicks into place.
Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty
Today on our 2006 Jeep Liberty, we're going to show you Part Number BX1122. This is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with removal arms. This is what the base plate looks like once installed on our vehicle. You notice that it sits in this opening right here that's in part of the bumper cover and it completely fills it up. We have a loop here for our safety cables. This section here is a receiver for the arms that go into place.
Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit Installation - 2002 Chevrolet Malibu
Today on our 2002 Chevrolet Malibu we're going to show you part number 194-3. This is the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit with removable arms. All right now this is what the Base Plate looks like when it's installed on the vehicle. It does hang below the bottom edge of the bumper so you can't see it all the way, but at least you do not have to do any trimming or cutting on the grill or the bumper cover. As angle on 00:26 body, that goes to the receiver right here and it uses four existing bolts already in the vehicle and plus one additional hole that's already existing in the vehicle so there's actually no drilling required. The Base Plate and the removable arm are both powder coasted for protection. How do they connect together is with 5/8 hitch pin and clip. When we want to remove them, we'll go ahead and pull out the pin and clip like so.
Base Plate Kit Installation - 2010 Mini Cooper
Today on our 2010 MINI Cooper, we're going to be doing an installation of the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with removable arms, part number BX1307. Now that we've got our fascia all put back in place all of our fasteners reconnected, you'll get a good idea of what the base plate's going to look like. You've just got a few things sticking out here in the front, not too noticeable, with the removable arms. As you can see it kind of blends in, rather than the permanent fixture arms, they kind of stick out a little bit further, a little bit easier to see. You'll notice we trimmed out up here on the grill area for our breakaway switch as well. Depending on your application that may be something you need to do, it just depends on where you're going to be putting it and what different parts you're going to be using.
Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2012 Hyundai Accent
Today on this 2012 Hyundai Accent, we're going to show you part number BX2333. This is the Blue Ox Base Plate with removable arms. This is what the base plate looks like when it's installed on the vehicle. You'll notice there's a section cut out here to make room for safety chain cables to mount here, and also, here is an opening for our removable arm. There's one on each side. All I had to cut out was just one little bar going across. This is an optional breakaway switch that comes from supplemental braking system.
Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2013 Ford Focus
Today on our 2013 Ford Focus we'll be installing the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit With Removable Arms, part number BX2633. Let's go over the operation of the removable arms. The removable arms have a spring-loaded lock that will line up with the grooves in the base plate. Line it up, push it in to collapse the spring, and rotate it until it locks in place. Then we can hook our tow bar directly up to our removable arms. Then, once you're finished towing your vehicle, we can go ahead and remove them by pulling back on the ring, collapsing the spring, rotating it, and removing it from the base plate.
