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.


Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Speaker: Today on this 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, we're going to show you part number BX1126. You see the silver parts that go into the base plate There's a tablet in the 00:00:12 arms that you line up with the slot on the inside of the base plate, you push it in until the lock on the spring retracts, and then twist it, and then the spring will go back into place into a detente and then the arm is locked into position and cannot come out. Now I'll go ahead and show you how the base-plate installs. Our first step is to go ahead and remove the plastic face-shift 00:00:29 that's underneath the bumper. There's a plastic ribbit underneath there that we're going to have to remove. Typically, you have to use a small Philip's Screwdriver to undo the centers - just unscrew it - and then you can pull out the rest of the ribbit. You can use a flat screwdriver to pull it apart, but a trimpound tool like what we're using works a lot better. When you pull down the edge underneath the vehicle, we can see there's at least a couple more underneath there.


Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2013 Chevrolet Captiva Sport

Today on our 2013 Chevy Captiva, well be installing the Blue Ox Base-Plate with removable arms Product Number BX3332.

Then to remove it, well pull back on the pin ring, rotate it up and remove the arm. To get it installed well first go ahead and open the hood. Well need to remove the upper fascia cover that connects the front fascia to the core support. There are multiple fasteners to be removed.

  • Will the Roadmaster Falcon 5250 Tow Bar Fit Roadmaster Base Plates on a 2000 Saturn LS1
  • My guess is that your Falcon 5250 tow bar is missing the quick disconnect crossbar assembly, # 910021-00. This comes up frequently. This assembly has plates that bolt to the draw bar arms on the base plates. The crossbar pins to these brackets and the Falcon 5250 pins to the crossbar. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • Recommended Supplemental Braking System for Flat Towing 2015 Jeep Wrangler
  • A Tow Bar and Braking System like the Ready Brute Elite combines a tow bar with a built-in supplemental braking system. The Ready Brute Elite braking system activates the brakes on your towed vehicle when your RV stops or slows. Basically the braking force of your RV works in combination with the forward surge of your towed vehicle to make it slow down and stop - like a surge brake trailer coupler. Instead I would recommend a proportional braking system like the Roadmaster tow bar braking...
