Video Transcript for Demco Tow Bar Sentry Deflector Review

Brian: Hey everybody. Brian 00:00:01 here at Today we're going to be taking a look at the Demco Sentry Deflector.Now, whenever you're flat-towing a vehicle, it's not uncommon for small rocks and debris to come up from under the motor home and scratch and damage the front of your vehicle. Which in turn will affect its overall appearance and resale value.That's where the deflector comes into play. It's going to help prevent any of those rocks or debris from coming up and hitting the front of our car. Now, from just looking at this, you might be thinking to yourself, "Well, it doesn't look like it covers up a whole bunch, and offers a lot of protection."But there is a reason that it is angled like this.

In fact, that's what separates this one from many of the others on the market. Since it's at this 30-degree angle, it's actually going to direct rocks and debris away from your vehicle.Now, in my opinion, this deflector looks very tough and rugged. And it's definitely more sturdy than some of the other ones out on the market. And just from feeling it and getting your hands on it, you can tell it's definitely built to last.Now, since the Deflector is so durable and rugged, it doesn't mean that it's stiff as a board. It actually has some flexibility to it.

Now, what that's going to do is help absorb those impacts from any rock or debris. It's also going to have some give to it; just in case that you hit a curb, it's not going to snap in half.Not only is this deflector going to help you personally, but it's also going to help out any motorists that might be traveling behind you. Since all motor homes do essentially kick up some sort of small rock or debris . and since it is actually deflects it down and away .. anyone that is behind you isn't going to get hit with that same debris as well.Now, this deflector is only going to be used when you are flat towing.

Many of our customers actually wrote in that have flat towed without this type of deflector, and experienced front-end damage. Well, they said that they made the switch, and are very happy with the results.Now, I do want to point out that this particular deflector does not work with every single flat tow setup. To make sure it isn't an issue, and it's going to fit with yours, be sure to check our Fit Guide.Now, if you have a Roadmaster or Blue Ox base plate, they do sell adapter kits, which are sold separately. Which will allow this to work with those. They also sell Demco Extensions.

That way, if your base plate is too wide, you get that extension piece and make this wider to accommodate for your base plate.Now, one thing that's really cool about this deflector, is when you're done using it, or you don't need it anymore, it's really easy to take off.Now, the first thing that you would do is disconnect everything. So I'll take off our safety cables. Slide them through. Get both of our safety cables out of the way, and then we can remove our six-way plug. And finally, our breakaway switch.Then from there, we'll remove this retaining clip. We can just set that off to the side. Then on these handles, we're going to pull up to separate the center section from the two end plates. Makes it easier to take the top ones off first, and then you can slide the bottom one, take your center section, just set it off to the side. Then you can grab each side plate and slide it out just like this.Now we'll take it out on our test course. You can see how stable it is, yet flexible when it needs to be. You can also see how well it's mounted to the front of the vehicle. You'll notice how much surface area it provides protection for us, giving us ample protection against any rocks or debris that may be kicked up from under your motor home.You can also see when making an extremely tight turn. The deflector, it's not going to make contact with the back of our motor home.And that'll do it for our look at of the Demco Sentry Deflector.

Sentry Deflector for Demco Tow Bars - DM9523135

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (6 Customer Reviews)


Great product. Protects our toad paint and windshield against stone cracks and chips. Easy to install and remove.


We recently ordered a Demco Sentry Deflector to keep rocks from slinging up from our motorhome and chipping the paint on the front of our new GMC Denali we will be towing. We also recently ordered a Demco Base Plate which will be mounted on our new 2021 GMC so that it may be towed by out motorhome. On both occasions, the order process was quick and the staff friendly. Additionally, the order was shipped the same day, because I called early enough to allow this and arrived in a very timely manner. I will definitely use etrailer for our future needs. Thank you all for your professionalism.


The shipping was great, as was tracking my order. Your How To videos are just the best. I am 75 years old and I installed my own base plate and rock shield using your videos. I even took the laptop out to the garage so I could follow along. The Demco products are good, but their included instructions are not. If it had nor been for your videos I could not have done it. Your videos saved me at least $600 of labor costs. You have made a believer out of me. You have great customer service.


Just opened the box, looks great, hope it works like it was advertised.


It’s not…it doesn’t fit…”throat width” or something to that effect was too wide. Thought I was buying based on “my vehicle” but I guess not. No return possible. Sentry deflector now deflecting dust in my garage.

  • Will the Sentry Deflector for Demco Tow Bars Work With Roadmaster Tow Bars and Base Plates

  • Which Demco Sentry Deflector For Demco Tow Bars
    I have a solution for you, but the Sentry Deflector for Demco Kar Kaddy Tow Dollies # DM5950 is designed to fit on the tongue of a Demco Kar Kaddy tow dolly and won't fit on a tow bar like the Demco Excali-bar III # DM9511013. If you've got a Demco tow bar and need a rock deflector you'll need the Sentry Deflector for Demco Tow Bars # DM9523135, which will mount to your tow bar to protect your front end while flat towing. If you've got a different brand tow bar or tow dolly, let me know...

    I have another option for you, but the Blue Ox KarGard # BX8870 you were looking at only works with Blue Ox Tow bars and base plates. Since you are using the Demco Excali-Bar Tow bar # DM9511013 with the Roadmaster Direct Connect Base Plates on your 2018 Jeep Cherokee you will need to go with the Sentry Deflector for Demco Tow Bars # DM9523135 with the adapter # DM9523027.

  • Recommended Screening and Mud Flaps to Protect Windshield of Vehicle When Dolly Towing
    The Roadmaster Tow Defender Protective Screening # RM-4750 can be mounted to your Sentry Rock Guard like # DM9523135 to keep road debris from being launched toward your tow dolly and CR-V. This is intended for tow bar use, but since you have a rock guard, it can be attached to that. Another option is to use the Rock Tamers Heavy-Duty, Adjustable Mud Flap System for 2" Hitches - Matte Black # ERT00108. These may even be used together if you have a long enough ball mount on your motorhome. I've...

  • Can the Towed Vehicle Rock Guards Be Modified
    I do have a number of different options to help protect your toad from rock chips while in tow but none of them are designed to be cut of modified to an exact size and they are all designed for specific tow bar/base plate applications. For example, if you have a Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit then you can use the Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard part # RM-4000 which measures 26" tall x 71" wide. If you have a Blue Ox Tow Bar you can use the Blue Ox KarGard Towed Vehicle Protector...

  • Can I Use the Rampage Cover # RA1304 on My Flat-Towed 2014 Toyota Camry?
    I have a solution for you. Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee that the Rampage 4-Layer Outdoor Vehicle Cover - Gray - 15' 1" to 16' Long # RA1304 will secure in any way during transport. This is especially true at higher speeds. However, depending on your tow bar/base plate setup on your 2014 Toyota Camry, you can use a rock guard like the Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard # RM-4000 or the Sentry Deflector for Demco Tow Bars # DM9523135.

    The Snoblock Snow and Ice Windshield and Wiper Blade Cover part # 288-06603 is not designed to be used on a moving vehicle.

    I recommend going with a Demco setup because they look good and are very easy to use after the initial installation.

Here are the parts I recommend for your 2020 Jeep Wrangler: Base Plate - # DM9519336 (plastic bumper) Base Plate - # DM9519339 (steel bumper) Dominator Tow Bar - # DM9511008 (comes with safety cables) Tow...
