Curt No-Drill Bracket for 6-Way or 7-Way Round Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket - Long - C57202

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (264 Customer Reviews)

Attach your trailer connector mounting bracket to your vehicle without having to drill. Just affix this sturdy steel bracket to your trailer hitch with the included hose clamp, and then quickly and easily bolt on your connector bracket.


It does not work for the Honda Passport Trailsport. The hitch sits behind and above the bumper and there is no where that it can be mounted that would give you access to the plug. I had to use a 90 degree metal plate and then mount the bracket to the side of the hitch.


This worked great. I have a class V hitch and there is no room to put the wiring, with this was able to move the trailer wiring up out of the way. Install was easy and it seems solid so far.


Easy to install. My 7 way feels nice and solid. Would recommend for anyone who doesn’t want to drill into their bumper. Just check if you need to hang under or over before mounting the 7 way plug.


I am having a problem with the install of the three Curt trailer components I purchased. I intentionally bought all of the same brand assuming that they would work together. The problem is that the Curt wiring harness (part# C55774) is too long and rigid. When the 7-pin connector is installed in the bracket that comes with it, it measure 5 inches until the black wire protective sleeve bends (to go under the hitch receiver frame).

The no-drill bracket (part# C57202) is supposed to attach the harness bracket to the hitch. But it is only 6.5" long, and the hitch tube is 3" wide. So with the bracket attached to the hitch, there is only 3.5" of space left to mount the harness bracket so that the screw holes line up.

I am disappointed that this is the case, especially as I called etrailer to check that the parts I was ordering would work together.

It looks like I will have to discard C57202 and drill two holes into the bottom of the hitch and mount the harness bracket directly. This is what I wanted to avoid - having to drill holes.

The 7-way bracket that comes with the wiring harness part # C55774 is designed to be installed with the wiring harness bracket hanging below the no drill bracket part # C57202. Since you are worried about the loose wiring I would recommend using some wire loom such as part # 459075-1 to protect your wiring and zip tie any slack with zip ties part # DW05726-25. I know this is not the option you wanted but I feel it is better than drilling into the hitch.


Went together without any problems, I pre-assembled the two brackets ( 7-Way Round Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket - Long - C57202 and the Pollak 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector - Vehicle End - PK12711U) then crawled under and put the clamp around the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2" that I bought along with this purchase and snapped in my existing 7 way and it was all set up. Very sturdy, though I was concerned with how stable it would when I purchased it. Turns out it is really solid, very happy with the setup. The hitch is a really beefy, so I'm quite pleased with it as well. I did enlist the help of a friend to get it up into place, which I think was the easiest path. If one had to, you could do it alone, but so much easier with a couple of extra hands. All in all, probably took 2 hours for the complete install.
I had a standard OEM hitch that I had used to attach a 9000 lbs pull capacity winch to pull up trees on my property, consequently, it stretched/hogged out my 5/8" pin hole, so every time I stopped or started with a trailer, it would slap around. Turns out the OEM hitch is rated for 7500 lbs, this Curt Hitch is rated at 16,000, so I should have no future problems. I'm happy with the setup. I expected that Curt would have engineered a better way to attach the 7 way when they designed the Hitch, I expected better from them.


Needed to replace my trailer connector as my oem was broken and also my oem hitch as well. Mike Lindsay made it happen for me to make sure i could get my connector and proper mount to work.
I applaud etrailers website but most importantly the staff that communicate and share INvaluable guidance to get a product chosen. Good people + good products = good business. Im happy! Thanks!


The Curt No-Drill Bracket worked absolutely perfect for my Drawtite hitch on my 2016 Subaru Outback. Super easy installation and the hose clamp worked a lot better and tighter than I expected it to. I would highly recommend this product if you are wanting to mount your wire harness to your hitch!


I was surprised at how sturdy this installation is. etrailer sure helped me out along the way with this installation. Special thanks to Alex J for his help on several occasions to help me get the right hitch and accessories for my new 2021 Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy.


Does the job and holding up well after regular use. Added a 7 way plug to my kia sorento and needed a solution to mount it. This attached easily to the factory hitch.


Works as expected. Clamp screw slips a bit when starting to tighten. I would have opted for the shorter bracket. This one puts the connector even with hitch receiver.


Well designed and it FITS!! The package went together with no "hitches" so to speak. Thanks again.


Works good so far. Just concerned with a hose clamp as a permanent connection


I have installed this on the bottom of the receiver hitch on our 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan with the 7-pin connector mounted on the bottom side for easier access.


Clamp broke after a while. Replaced it. Other than that it, works good.


I didn't care for the way this bracket sat on my Curt XD receiver hitch. Because the crossbar on the hitch sits at an angle, so does this plate. I ended up fabricating my own bracket and attaching it to the bumper support.


I had an issue with the clamp on the first one, etrailer sent me a replacement right away and it has worked great and is still holding up just fine a year+ later.


The bracket and hardware were good, however the strap holding the bracket onto the hitch tube would not open. I called for a replacement and spoke with Dru who said He would send a new one out. I was ready to install the two brackets and had to put the project on hold.

We recently sent you a new hitch bracket and were wondering if you had any feedback about the product for other shoppers? We look forward to hearing from you.


Good product, good service.


Great product!!


This worked perfectly on my Jeep Wrangl er.


This part was exactly what I was looking for. I knew it would not fit my volvo XC90 perfectly, so Iwanted something that I could cut/bend to make it fit the way I wanted. This part was a great starting point and yielded a very robust mount that is tucked up out of the way.


Ordered parts for installing a brake controller.
The videos that are part of the web site were a great help in selecting all the needed parts, detailed down to the part numbers that were needed.
I really like the fact that there is a video showing the brake controller installation with my specific vehicle.
Great service !

Working perfectly


We made a special 5 hour drive to etrailer, and etrailer did (Fantastic) installation work on this part as well as installing the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate-4420-1, with Removable Arms, Wiring-RM-152-98146-7, Braking System-SM99251, Tow Bar-RM-522, Safety Cables-RM-645, and Brake Lite Relay-RM-88400 Kit on our 2011 Ford Fusion. We absolutely love this system. Ease of connectability and reliability is great. etrailer has stood tall on complete customer satisfaction and has prided themselves on doing things the right way the first time. We have a 2016 Honda Accord Touring that we are considering as a future tow vehicle, etrailer will be a clear choice. We recommend them with confidence. Thank you everyone at etrailer for great Communication, Customer Satisfaction, Service and product reliability!


Great Idea

Works Great


Great product, works as expected, and easy to install thanks to video provided. Gave it 4 stars vs 5 as clamp provided for trailer mounting bracket was too short. This was after confirming size with representative over the phone. Short bracket and long bracket offer the same 4-inch strap to secure onto hitch. My trailer hitch measures 3.5 x 3.5 inches, ended up securing long plate with large tie strap. Also hardware supplied to fasten bracket should be stainless steel but that's an easy upgrade to complete.

  • Is the Curt No-Drill Mounting Bracket C57202 the Same as the Tow Ready Version
    The Tow Ready Long No-Drill mounting bracket 18136 has been discontinued but the Curt # C57202 that you referenced is essentially the same thing. It will allow you to install a mounting bracket for your vehicle-side connector without having to drill into your trailer hitch receiver.

    Instead of attaching the bracket to the lower spoiler your best option would be to attach it to the body above and behind the spoiler. That will get it out of the way and also out of plainsight.

  • Where to Store the 4-Pole Connector on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma
    A four-pole connector is the connector that gets connected to the trailer wiring from the tow vehicle. It is called a 4-pole connector because the connector has 4 poles that carry 4 different tail light circuits. Most people will store the 4-pole connector at the rear of there vehicle near the hitch. Check out the picture I attached. What I would recommend you do is get a 4-pole bracket like our No-Drill Mount Bracket # C57202 and route the 4-pole through that. Using this bracket will...

  • Distance from Center Hole to Bend in Bracket for 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket 18138
    On 7-Way mounting bracket # 18138, the distance from the large center hole up to where the bracket bends is 1-3/16 inches. All of the similar brackets, see link to the right, are going to have the same or similar measurement but none as much as 2-1/2 inches. You may be able to modify (bend) long bracket # C57202 to achieve the distance you need.

You'll need to drill some holes on your existing hitch to mount this, but it's a universal bracket so as long as you've got a flat piece of frame or bumper on the rear of the truck, you'll be able to make this work. If you wanted a no-drill option, you...

  • How to Secure a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2012 Nissan Frontier

These two parts will allow you secure the trailer connector to the hitch on your vehicle without having to drill or use zip ties.

  • Which No-Drill Bracket to Install # 37185 on Class III Receiver for 2010 Ford F150
    You are correct, the Curt Class III receiver you mentioned, part # 13368 does not feature a mounting bracket welded to it. Over the years, we have found that the long bracket, part # C57202 works better with the thicker tubing used on a Class III hitch, while the short bracket you referred to works better on a Class I or II hitch. The long bracket will allow more clearance at the rear for the wiring to clear. The # 37185 includes the bracket that will allow the 7-way adapter to attach...

    It sounds like you are trying to make sure you can use the existing bracket mount on your hitch to mount the Curt T-Connector part # C55774 on your 2018 Nissan Titan with factory 7-way port. The wiring portion of the Curt T-Connector measures 15-3/4" long so you may want to measure from the factory 7-way port to the mounting bracket on your hitch to see if you have enough length. The other options would be Gooseneck wiring options and the shortest one available is 7 feet long which is way...

  • 7-Way Mounting Bracket for a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe
    Due to the limited space available in the cut out area around the receiver on your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe the Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58000 will not be a fit. Your best option is to use bracket # C57202 around the hitch to the left of the receiver and use the bracket you have that is currently holding the 7-Way to attach the 7-Way in that location. That will be a much cleaner look and give you better ground clearance than your existing set up.

  • Recommended No Drill Bracket Compatible with Hopkins 4-Way to 7-Way Trailer Wiring Adapter # 37185
    The bracket that comes with the Hopkins Adapter 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole # 37185 has the standard bracket hole locations to use with any of our no drill brackets. The 2-1/4 inches on center are standard on the no drill brackets, so you can use Curt # C57202 or # 18136 for a long no drill bracket. I've attached a photo of the Curt measurements to assist. Either of these will work well with a trailer hitch receiver whether it is a square crossbar or a round one like you mentioned.

The bracket included with the # ETBC7 would bolt directly to the # C57202. I'll link you to a video showing how the bracket works.
