This part allows me to connect my tow bar to a Blue Ox base plate on my 94 Suzuki Sidekick but doesn't fit as snugly as I would have liked it to. This can be resolved with a few washers so it isn't a big problem....just would have been nice it they had included them with the adapters. 500152

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Will Roadmaster Base Plate Kit Fit with Curt Tow Bar for a 2017 Chevy Spark
  • If you already have the Curt Tow Bar # C19745 then you will need to use the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1725 with the Adapter Kit # BX8833 for your 2017 Chevy Spark. If you already have the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # RM-523185-5 then you will need to use a Roadmaster tow bar that slides into the hitch receiver like the Falcon 2 # RM-520. Unfortunately there are no adapters from a Roadmaster base plate kit to a Curt tow bar. For a complete flat towing setup you will need a base plate...

  • Can a Jeep Wrangler be Flat Towed by the Front Bumper
  • I have a solution for you, however, I would not recommend mounting a tow bar directly to a bumper on a Jeep, whether it is OEM or an aftermarket bumper like the Pavement Ends Front Bumper, # PE4390801. Jeep does not recommend towing the Wrangler with the OEM bumper because it was not designed to pull the weight of the vehicle. Also, mounting a tow bar to a bumper would require drilling. I spoke with my contact at Pavement Ends and she said drilling into this bumper would void the warranty...

  • Will Blue Ox Adapters # BX8833 Fit Curt Tow Bar # C19745
  • I went out to the warehouse to measure both the Blue Ox adapter # BX8833 and the arms on the Curt tow bar # C19745. I am happy to report that the adapter and tow bar will work together! The tow bar arms where the adapters would attach are 1.97 inches tall and they have a slightly larger than 1/2 inch diameter bolt hole. The adapter opening that fits over the tow bar arms are 2 inches tall and they have a 1/2 inch bolt diameter. They couldn't be more suited for each other. The 26 to 41...

  • Can Curt Tow Bar be Used to Flat Tow 2016 Ford Focus
  • We only have one adapter that fits the Curt tow bar you have and it's the Blue Ox part # BX8833 which allows it to connect to Blue Ox base plate kits. That means that for your 2016 Ford Focus you'd need the Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX2663. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Can You Use a Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with a Valley Tow Bar
  • Yes, you can use Valley Tow Bars with a Blue Ox Base Plate like the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1647. You will need a Blue Ox Base Plates Adapter # BX8833 in order to adapt your Valley tow bar to the # BX1647. I attached an FAQ article on flat towing that you should find informative also.

  • Parts Needed for Flat Towing My 2007 PT Cruiser Behind a 2002 Chevrolet Suburban
  • Yes, you can use the Tow Ready Adjustable Tow Bar, item # 63180, to tow your 2007 PT Cruiser Turbo convertible. Keep in mind that this tow bar is rated for towing speeds of 45 miles per hour or less. A better tow bar option would be the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar, # BX7322 , which is designed for towing long distances and more frequently. You will need some other items along with the tow bar to complete your towing setup. First, a base plate kit for the PT Cruiser is needed. The...

  • How to Flat Tow 1997 Jeep Wrangler with Curt Tow Bar
  • The only base plate kit solution we have that will work with your Curt tow bar part # C19745 is going to be if you use a Blue Ox base plate kit like the # BX1118 with the Blue Ox adapter # BX8833. We don't have any other adapter solutions that will work with your Curt tow bar.

  • Tow Bar and Recommended Accessories for Flat Towing 2011 Hyundai Sonata
  • To provide an attachment point for a tow bar, base plates like the Blue Ox # BX2330 would need to be installed on the vehicle. In order to use the Tow Ready # 63180 you referenced, you would also need an adapter, part # BX8833. However, that particular tow bar is only rated for 45 mph, so I would consider using a different tow bar like the Blue Ox Acclaim, part # BX4330. The Acclaim would require no adapters, includes the necessary safety cables, and would allow you to travel at normal...

  • Adapters to Use Roadmaster or Blue Ox Base Plates with Different Tow Bars
  • There are some tow bars that will fit Roadmaster or Blue Ox base plates using an adapter. But I would have to know the brand and model of the tow bar to be sure. For example, adapter # RM-032 will allow you to use Roadmaster base plates with Demco Aluminator, Excali-bar and Kwik-Tow and Ready Brute Elite tow bars. Adapter # RM-025 will allow you to use Roadmaster base plates with Draw-Tite (2480), Reese (74950), Valley, EAZ-Lift and Tow Ready (63180) tow bars. Adapter # RM-038...

  • Towing a 2007 Toyota Solara with a Chevy 3500 Pickup
  • There a few ways to do this. If your 2007 Toyota Solara has a manual transmission you can use a tow bar ans base plates to tow your vehicle. If your vehicle has the U151E transmission you would need a transmission lube pump to flat tow the vehicle or you could rent a tow dolly, which would hold the front wheels off the ground. You could also rent a 16 foot car hauler trailer. If your vehicle has the U250E transmission you will have to use a tow dolly or trailer to transport the Solara. If...

  • Using a Draw-Tite Tow Bar to Flat Tow a 1969 Chevrolet G10 Van
  • Before towing your 1969 G10 you'll want to do some research (if you haven't already) and make sure it can be flat towed without causing any damage to it. We do not have a custom base plate kit for the G10. So you'll need to use universal bolt-on brakets # BX88230. Once these are installed the adapter # BX8833 connect the base plate brackets to a Draw-Tite tow bar. I've linked an article on flat towing you may find helpful

  • What Adapter Is Needed to Use the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with the Tow Ready Adjustable Tow Bar
  • In order to use the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX3505 on your 1994 Suzuki Sidekick with the Tow Ready Adjustable Tow Bar part # 63180, you will also need to use the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter part # BX8833. If you also need safety cables to go between the toad and tow vehicle I recommend using part # RM-645. Please keep in mind that in order to complete your flat-towing setup you will also need flat-tow wiring, a supplemental braking system, and possible high-low adapter. If you would...

  • Base Plate Kit Needed to Flat Tow a 2002 Jeep Liberty with a Curt Tow Bar
  • To use a Curt tow bar, like part # C19745 to flat tow your 2002 Jeep Liberty you will need to install the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1119 and then use the Adapter Kit # BX8833. The Blue Ox base plate kit has removable arms that help gives your Jeep an OEM look when you aren't flat towing. If you will be doing a lot of towns then I recommending using the Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 if your motorhome has a 7-Way or the Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154 if your motorhome has a 4-Way....

  • Will the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Kit # BX8833 Fit a U-Haul Tow Bar
  • The Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Kit # BX8833 that you referenced hasn't been confirmed to fit with a U-Haul tow bar, but you may be able to. I went out to the warehouse and found that the distance between the arms of each adapter measured 2-1/4". If your U-Haul tow bar is close to that then it will work, but if it is much bigger or smaller you will want to look into getting a Blue Ox tow bar instead. I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha # BX7365 which comes with safety cables and is rated for...

  • Can Tow Ready Tow Bar part # 63180 Connect to Blue Ox Base Plate Kit
  • If you had the Tow Ready tow bar part # 63180 you'd be able to use the Blue Ox adapter part # BX8833 to connect to your Blue Ox Base Plate kit part # BX3505. There's no way to use the Curt tow bar you mentioned with the Blue Ox tow bar as there are no adapters available.

  • Recommended Base Plate Fit and Related Items to Flat Tow 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan Behind Winnebago
  • Safe and legal flat towing requires a number of components: tow bar, safety cables, a wiring/lighting kit, base plates and a supplementary braking system. Each of these is detailed in the linked article. Your Reese Tow Champ tow bar 74950 has a 5000-lb maximum vehicle weight rating according to my contact at Reese Consumer products. Your 2011 Grand Caravan has a weight range of 4321- to 4483-lbs depending on its equipment and so will be within the tow bar's rating. Generally it is...

  • Can a 2000 Ford Ranger Manual Transmission and Rear Wheel Drive be Towed with a TowReady Tow Bar
  • Yes, the Tow Ready Adjustable Tow Bar, # 63180, can be used to tow the 2000 Ford Ranger with manual transmission. You will need to refer to your owners manual for procedures and restrictions for towing your Ranger, and make sure that the Ranger is below the 5,000 pound capacity of the tow bar. You will also have to keep in mind that this tow bar is rated for towing speeds of 45 miles per hour or less. A better tow bar option would be the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar, # BX7322, which is...

  • Recommend Base Plate Kit For Blue Ox Tow Bar on 2003 Jeep Liberty
  • For a base plate kit that is compatible with your 2003 Jeep Liberty and Blue Ox tow bar, I would recommend the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, part # BX1119. The Blue Ox kit is compatible with Blue Ox motor home mount tow bars. In addition to a base plate kit and tow bar, you will need safety chains, lighting or wiring, and a supplemental braking kit to flat-tow your Jeep Liberty. The Roadmaster Coiled Safety Cables, part # RM-643, would be a good option for safety cables. For lighting,...
