Video Transcript for Pollak Replacement Bracket for 7 and 4 Pole Trailer Connectors Review

Today we'll be taking a look at and installing our replacement mounting bracket for Hopkins seven pull and four pull trailer connector sockets, Part Number HM40978. This is what it looks while installed using our line bracket here. It's nice and firm so it's not going to go anywhere. You can see this truck is shaking because I've pulled on it. This is the connector. This is how this mounts up in here. If you lost or broke your bracket, this is your option to go with instead of buying a whole new kit.

I'm going to pull this through. It connects our seven pull/four pull in place. Set that through and it just snaps in place. That's not going to go anywhere and you have full access to both sides of your trailer connector. Let's show you how it's installed. To make this work, I'm going to be using our long bracket, so clamp around our frame, giving us a place to mount our bracket here.

We use our bolt here, pass that through. On the back side I'm going to put a washer and then the nut that comes with it. These washers don't come with the kit, but I suggest finding some because the holes are kind of big on the back and you want a nice place for these to grab onto. Holding the nuts on the back side, the star washer kind of does the work for us. I'm just going to tighten it down. Then I can grab my clamp and go around our hitch to hold it in place.

The clamp just goes through the bracket and I feed it through itself right here as much as I can. Here's the bolt. I hold it away from the bracket, and when I'm ready to tighten it I push the bolt towards it so that the teeth can grab it. Now that I've got my bolt the way I want it, I'm going to go ahead and start tightening it. I'm going to kind of tuck this up behind the hitch so it doesn't grab onto anything while we're going down the road. Confirm it's nice and tight, and I can break that off or fold it, which I'm just going to fold it, and it's nice and tucked away behind the hitch.

That's our look at the replacement mounting bracket, Part Number HM40978.Speaker 2: You can find this and everything else right here at etrailer.com. What's up man.

I purchased an OE ford connector to change my 4 pin to a combo 7/4. Unfortunately, it did not come with a bracket. This bracket works perfectly with the OE 7/4 combo. Took about 10 minutes to install. Quick and easy job. 738195

this bracket is heavier, meaning it should last longer than the original. Excellent workmanship, perfect replacement. etrailer hit it out of the park with this one. Thanks 697770

Bracket fit really well on my 2015 Ford transit. The self tapping screws it comes with are cheap and you will be lucky if they will work. Pretty much need to predrill for the screws which isn't a huge deal. The factory Ford 4way/7way fits perfectly in the cutout 690999
