Video Transcript for Hopkins Wiring HM48595 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Hopkins fold-over mounting bracket for a 4-way flat trailer connector. This part will let you mount your 4-way flat trailer connector to your vehicle very quickly and easily. Basically, it folds around your 4-way to secure it in place and provide a permanent fixed connection point. The other nice thing is there's a cutout year, which allows the use of your 4-way's attached dust cover. It is constructed with durable corrosion-resistant polypropylene. It does install very easily with these including mounting hardware that comes with it.

It attaches to your vehicle's bumper near the hitch. This part is made in the USA. Just to give you an example of how it operates, here's a trailer connector that would be on your vehicle. Basically, you can see it's designed to shape right around there. You can see, as I mentioned, there's a cutout where your dust cover would go right through and then just close that around it, just like that. You can see your dust cover will still go on.

Then use your mounting hardware to attach this to the bumper. It holds your 4-way in position right near your hitch. Then you snap it off. But that should do it for the review on the Hopkins fold-over mounting bracket for the 4-way flat trailer connector.

This will replace the factory bracket on a 2015 Highlander as the Hopkins plug it is designed for is an exact match to the factory plug. The sheet metal screws it comes with won't work, but you want stainless steel anyways. A couple of 10-32 screws will just fit through and aircraft nuts will make sure it does not rattle loose. 504736

For the pricing on this product, it was a great solution to create a permanent mounting solution to secure the trailer wiring connector on my truck. I wasn't able to mount it to my bumper due to the way it was designed, but I was able to get it mounted to the trailer hitch frame itself on the truck. The bracket fits the connector plug like a glove, and combined with the connector cover, it looks very nice, almost like a factory job. My only complaint (and thus my justification for 4 stars instead of 5) with this is the Phillips head screws. I do not know why manufacturers continue to provide these with products that need securing, especially where driving them into a metal surface is highly probable. Please, please, please - update this package to include hex head screws where they can be driven with a nut driver socket on a drill. Phillips screws are very prone to stripping and a pain in the posterior to work with. I have mine secured now with the supplied screws, but I will be replacing them with hex head screws ASAP. 455070


Comments

They have worked out well. I liked being able to mount the trailer connector to the bottom of the bumper and the connector cover was a nice + to protect the pins. From what I remember, I seem to recall using hex head metal screws in place of the provided Phillips head screws as they are much easier to work with without the risk of rounding out the head of the screws.

The only bad thing about this experience is that I didn't go to you guys sooner! Tried 4 different sources (big name sources!) ...Oh my goodness...I just gotta say they didn't have a clue. I need a male and female wire connector that would handle 2 - 14 gage wires and 2 - 18 gage wires for a twelve volt system and a mounting bracket. You would have thought I was asking them to design a part for the next Mars Mission! Anyway enough rant...Your videos were great, your service person was great, your delivery was right on the money and it was exactly the part(s) I needed. On to the next project. Now I getting ready to order the next parts I need...from you. 441997

Ok the biggest problem I had was in the delivery it took twice as long because it went from the original shipping point in Missouri to another place in Missouri then it went all the way to Ohio back to Indianapolis back to Ohio then back to Indianapolis and then to Lafayette and deliver to my house which took approximately 10 days and it should have only taken 3 cuz It went from UPS to when it got the Indianapolis the UPS bounce it around all over Ohio and Missouri and Illinois and wherever else they went and it finally came to Indianapolis to get put in with the United States Postal System and when they got it and sent the Lafayette then I got delivered to my house. I can see why it takes so long to deliver it and why it cost to deliver it for small package it was $7 approximately and I had to pay shipping I'm surprised they didn't charge more for all the running around different states and everything it should have came from Missouri straight to Indianapolis UPS delivers that way all the time 496224

Product was better than I expected and design allows for the use of the factory frame holes. I highly recommend this product. 541155

worked great with Hopkins plug. 527629



- HM48595
by:

Well, the product is probably a good product, but would be better if it listed what 4-way plugs it would be compatible with; however, the Curt 4-w plug connector that I ordered did not fit into this mounting bracket, it would not close completely, as the tabs on the Curt 4-way connector stick out too far, even if they would have been lower, like if I filed them off, it wouldn't fit properly unless I used some silicone RTV or something to fill the gaps so it wouldn't bee loose. So basically I will have this mounting bracket laying around in a drawer until I have need of it, if I remember where it is if that day ever comes. 185034

Straight forward piece of equipment. Serves its purpose well. I used the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector - Item # HM11143865. The harness and this mounting bracket work perfectly together. I just installed this today; as I write this review. Longevity is TBD. 661195

Product does a great job of mounting your 4 wire flat trailer connector to the hitch. Keeps it from dangling or having to rap it around the hitch. 540987



- HM48595
by:

Works great would buy again 523891



- HM48595
by:

The inside is shaped to match the shape/ridges of the plug so that once it is clamped down the plug won't back out when plugging in the trailer plug. The standard metal brackets, when mounted on the bottom of the hitch, hang down too low and get damaged when the rear of the vehicle encounters a slope (driveway, etc). This mount is low profile and barely noticeable. 498932

The Hopkins 12" 4-flat connector extension and the Hopkins mounting bracket are top quality and will allow me to extend my truck's factory trailer wiring connector to the mounting bracket for a professional looking install. The mounting bracket will allow a much easier disconnect of trailer from truck. The quick response from the etrailer Team is remarkable and I look forward to additional business with them. 462383

  • Mounting Bracket For Trailer Side 4-Way Connector
  • For your trailer side 4-way connector, I recommend the Hopkins Mounting Box for 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector # HM48755. This can mount to the tongue or coupler on your trailer and keep your 4-way clean and out of the elements. Other options are the Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket for 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector # HM48595 or the Tow Ready Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat # 18144 which can work on the trailer side just as well as the vehicle side.

  • Does the Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket # HM48595 Fit Trailer Wiring of 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
  • The Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket # HM48595 that you referenced can't work with Curt harnesses like the part # C56040 or the T-One kit part # 118467 as it's a bit too small. You'd have to use the Hopkins wiring harness part # HM11143865 or use the bracket # 18144 with the Curt or Tow Ready.

  • 4-Way Mounting Bracket Needed for the Hopkins # HM11143445 Wiring Kit
  • The Hopkins Connector # HM11143445 that you referenced, for some reason or another, has a slightly larger 4-Way connector than standard 4-Way connectors. We have actually tested the Tow Ready # 18144 with Hopkins connectors before and found that they are not compatible which is why we posted a note to the product page addressing this issue. We do have the Hopkins # HM48595 that is compatible with your current connector though. I have attached a review video for you to check out.

  • Coiled 7-Way to 4-Way Recommendation for Towed Vehicle
  • Yes, we have the Wesbar # 787196 which is an 8 foot long 7-way to 5-way. I know you need a 4-way but this will work well as the fifth circuit would just not be used.

  • Mounting Bracket for 4-Way Connector
  • The Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket # HM48595 is a stand-alone bracket and would not be compatible with other brackets such as Mount Bracket # 18140. What you would want to use is bracket # 18140 along bracket # 18144. You can see how they work together in the video I've linked for you.

  • Recommended Wiring Harness and Hitch Installation for 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • The Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket for 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector # HM48595 will fit the standard 4-way flat connectors on the Tekonsha # 118534 and the Curt # C56331. The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118534 is my preference over the Curt # C56331. Both will install in the same way, but the Tekonsha brand has less issues than Curt regarding wiring harnesses. Their converter modules just hold up better over time. If you haven't already...

  • Dimensions Of Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket For 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector
  • I pulled one of the Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket, part # HM48595 from our warehouse and took a couple measurements for you. When closed, the bracket can hold a 4-way connector that measures 1/2 inch tall and 1-1/3 inches wide. The bracket does have curved corners so it is oblong and not a straight edge rectangular opening. I have attached a photo of the bracket with the dimensions shown. The mounting holes of the bracket and 2 inches center to center. The mounting screws are included....

  • Is Mounting Bracket Included with Hopkins Vehicle Wiring Harness # HM43315
  • The Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness # HM43315 referenced in your question, which is confirmed to fit your 2000 Toyota Tacoma, does not include a mounting bracket. To add a bracket, I recommend the Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket # HM48595. This sturdy bracket will actually fold over the 4-Way connector to quickly and easily secure it in place and will attach to the vehicle with the included mounting hardware. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product...

  • Will Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness # C56245 Work with Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket
  • I went out to the warehouse so I could physically test the fit of the 4-Way on the Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness # C56245 and the Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket # HM48595. I found that the 4-Way connector, along with the dust cap, were just a bit too large to allow the folding bracket to securely close around the unit. This particular bracket will not be the best mounting option for this harness. I instead recommend looking at the Tow Ready Mounting Bracket # 18144. You can use...

  • Screw-Mounted 4-Pole Bracket for Standard Hopkins 4-Pole Trailer Connector HM48145
  • Of the 4-pole connector brackets we offer the one closest to your description is the Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket # HM48595. This works with standard 4-pole plugs like # HM48145 but not with the special easy-grip Endurance wiring such as # HM48044. I checked with Hopkins to confirm.

  • Does the Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket # HM48595 Only Fit Hopkins 4-Way Connectors
  • The Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket # HM48595 that you referenced is a universal fit. This means that it will be compatible with most, but not all 4-Way connectors that are out there as design can vary between manufacturers. You can use the internal dimensions of 1-1/3" wide x 1/2" tall (see attached photo) to help you determine if it will work for you application.

  • Distance Between Mounting Holes of Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket # HM48595
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled the Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket for 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector, part # HM48595, and took the requested measurement for you. From the center of the mounting holes the bracket measures 2 inches. Check out the picture I made for you showing this measurement. I have also included the installation instructions for your reference.

  • Does Hopkins Wiring Harness fit 2017 Chevy Traverse Without Factory Tow Package
  • Yes it does! The Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Connector # HM11141150 will fit and work on your 2017 Chevy Traverse without the factory towing package. To install it you simply plug it into connection points behind your tail lights and run a hot lead to your battery and you'll have a working 4-way to power your trailer lights. I have added a link to a video of this connector being installed on a Traverse for you to take a look at as well as a link to the written...
