Replaced the Ford OEM 4 pin harness with the OEM 7 pin harness and this bracket was recommended to hold the 7pin. Works like a charm for you Ford guys that happen to have a 4 pin and want a 7 pin. 157591

Works great, Great quality. I ordered this because the old one on my 2004 Chevy 2500HD was bent, broken and rusty. I called the Chevy dealer near me, gave them my VIN # and he told me the only way to get this bracket was to order a complete trailer hitch. Seriously?!? The price is very reasonable and this bracket works, fits and looks awesome. Buy it. 595445

The Original single plug was hung too low and scraped the driveway entry as I entered or left the driveway. Your bracket allowed me to relocate the better plug assembly closer to the bumper much higher than the hitch receiver. 541151

Looked everywhere for a bracket to reposition the trailer sockets on my 2018 4Runner. Factory placement had it buried under the body. My boat trailer wiring could barely reach the 4-flat socket and I had to actually lie on the ground to plug in my lights. This was the only product I could find that fit my needs. I did have to cut two 1" spacers for the product to clear the plastic bumper so I could access the connector sockets. It did fit without drilling any holes which was important to me. I just needed to buy longer bolts. Happy with the results - no more lying on the ground to plug in my trailer! 522483

Repeat customer, products are all top quality but more importantly the customer service is outstanding. Today most vendors and etrailers view support and service as a cost center; Seth has proven once again that quality customer facing roles are a vital role in the overall success of a transaction and business. Other vendors would do well to take a page from Seth's book in dealing with their customers. 460649

Excellent item with one problem. If installed as designed there is no way for the pug to fit because the horizontal tube of the hitch is in the way. Easily solved by using spacers and longer bolts but a better design would have helped. Except for that one issue it would be five stars. 401431

Holds the factory OEM trailer plug well on my wife's 2014 Grand Cherokee. It didn't come up with the tow package from the factory, so adding it was looking to be a pain until I discovered this gem. Still holds up well after a year, 5 stars. 382368
