Video Transcript for Tow Ready 4-Pole Mounting Bracket Installation

Today we are going to be installing the universal 4-Flat connector part number 18144 in conjunction with our universal short bracket part 18140. With our wire already routed outside of the vehicle we'll go ahead and install the 4-flat mounting bracket on the universal mounting bracket. We'll use the supplied hardware to secure it. With our two screws tightened down, take the worm clamp and secure directly to the hitch. Now we've got that tightened down, I'll go ahead and take a pair of tin snips and cut off the excess from the clamp. With the clamp secure we'll go ahead and route the 4 pole through the 4-Flat mounting bracket and input the cap on the end of our 4 pole.

And there you have it with the installation of tow ready 4-flat connector part number 18144 along with our tow ready universal short bracket part number 18140.

The product was exactly as described and shown in the video. Worked very well with the 4-pole flat mounting bracket. On my last installation I kept the wiring in the vehicle until needed. That would not have been convenient this time - this bracket made for a neat and clean installation. 98768

Great solution to avoid having to drill into the frame or body components in order to install the 4 pole mounting bracket. One year after installation the powder coat is still intact and there is no rust. 561105

Paired this with item ETBC7. Unfortunately, it was too short for my application but that is not a problem with the item itself. I easily lengthened it using some small bolts. Quality appears decent however the paint chipped off of the hose clamp first time through the wash. Not a big deal though unless you REALLY want the clamp to stay black. If in doubt, I would get the longer one. 273507

Clean install. I recommend adding extra coats of Rustoleum paint or plasti-dip type applications to prevent rust prior to installation. 554988

A great little product that does exactly what it says. Our hitch receiver was installed on our 2013 Subaru Outback by a local trailer rental place and they did a fine job. I even sprung for the wiring hook up however, that left the wiring loose in the rear compartment. With this little item I was able to semi-permanently affix the wiring harness to the hitch for a more "factory" look while adding to the convenience of hitching up that occasional trailer!! Outstanding solutions to simple problems!!! 555886

I mounted this unit on the frame of the trailer hitch. It fit very well. It took about five minutes. It is package showing being mounted on a square tube hitch, mine is a round tube. I rolled it over so the bend faces up. It mounted easily and is nice and snug. My plan is to keep this vehicle for at least the next five years and foresee towing the trailer to other stores fairly regularly. 447273

This is my third purchase from etrailer and they have all been positive experiences. The wiring bracket fits very snugly on my hitch and was easy to install. I already had the "L" shaped bracket for the four pin plug and the predrilled holes lined up with no issues. My only comment would be that the description for this product should make it more clear that you need the separate piece for a complete wiring setup. When I was reading the description it wasn't entirely clear. All in all, this was exactly what I wanted though. 315825

Completely useless product. The strap was not long enough to do what it says it will do, the clamp is not good, it was of no value, I could not even use it. I drilled and mounted the 7 wire plug in a normal fashion. I would like a call tag and refund for this useless mount. 319127

This bracket 11840 worked out perfectly to attach the replacement 7 way trailer connector 118243 to my 2000 Ford F250 7.3 Super Duty. Without this bracket, the 118243 connector would not mount correctly to my truck. It would not clear the bottom of my bumper in the original mounting position on the bumper. I also bought the Pollak7 plus 4 way connector because I have multiple trailers with different connectors. This product is HM40975 and I highly recommend that it be purchased with the other two products. The guys at eTrailer really know their products and are so helpful. They know what exceptional customer service is all about. Also, I love all of their online videos and information on the website that allows you to make informed decisions. Their prices are very competitive too. With free shipping over $99, they can't be beat.. For those reasons, I will not buy trailer gear anywhere else. 138978

The instructions for attaching the wiring harness and mounting bracket are woefully inadequate. No mention is made of where to attach the mounting bracket and, once you figure out where to put it, you are left with the surprise that more of the facia needs to be cut out and there is no guidance as to how to enlarge the cut-out. If the instructions had been better, this product would have rated an "excellent". 59461

This clamp was installed on my 2013 Toyota Sienna. It was a little small and a little difficult to put onto the van along with the 7 pole RV trailer connector. But with a little bending and cursing I was able to get it to work. eTrailer has a bigger mounting bracket for this, but they were out at the time of my order. eTrailer rep called me to inform me as such and recommended that I use this clamp. Asked if it would work on 2013 Toyota Sienna and they stated it would. Well it did, just not as easily as the video showed. Note that the video recommended the bigger clamp. Overall good product. 338807

This was installed on a round tube hitch for a 2015 Honda Odyssey. Everything installed easily and the clamp was simple to use. I would think this bracket would sit nicer on a square tube simply due to the flatter surface, so if you install with a round tube, just be sure to keep it level as you tighten up on the clamp. 358782

Bought replacement truck in MOORE, OK and ordered hitch and accessories via iPhone in route back to Chicago. Order was there one day after returning and installed the following weekend. Hitch fit and looks like the OEM option and helpful video made the install a snap... did it in my driveway. Good price, fast shipping and wide selection makes etrailer a great value. p.s. I ordered the etrack system for the interior and made cargo containment a pleasure to deal with! 400927

Perfect fit and easy to install. I would like for it to be a little more rigid... maybe the strap could have been a little wider. It still works good for my needs. 557186

This mounting bracket works great! I used it on my Draw-Tite hitch which already had a plate welded onto it for a mounting bracket. The holes lined up perfectly and I used the two locking screws to hold it in place. The 4-pole harness fits into the slot perfectly and it holds the harness securely in place. Great product! 499855

The product itself appeared to be good but on my 2018 Mazda CX 5, the trailer hitch is mounted very high and the wide part is on the back side, not the top, so when part #18144 is attached, it does not point out the back of the car. It would have been up behind the bumper with the connector pointing down. I did not need the hidden look and it would have been a pain to connect each time. I could not use Part #18140 with my vehicle. The pictures I included show how high the trailer hitch bar is up under the car and where I ended up attaching the #18144(118144 on box) to the metal bumper bracket. Image without bracket shows back of car at top of picture. 480767

Sorry to be so late in sending you photos. To get the plug more forward, we used the brackets we bought from you. At the same time, we rewired the 7-pole receptacle and place a boot from a shock over the wire and receptacle to keep everything more water tight. Works very well. Thanks again for your prompt service in getting the brackets to us. 246889

After reading other reviews and watching the simple how-to video on e-trailer this product (118449) was extremely easy to install and works as expected. I would recommend this to anyone looking to install their own harness on the 2012 Highlander. The only thing that I would like to see added is another thin plug/receptacle that can fit through a splice in the rubber grommets at the rear of the vehicle (so the 4-pole connector can be mounted permanently outside the vehicle). The existing 4 pin connectors on both ends are too large to feed through the vehicle body grommets. Instead I spliced the wires, ran them through the grommet, and re-soldered and heat shrank the wires for a solid connection. I intentionally spliced the wires closer to the plug internal to the vehicle to avoid problems with dust, grime, and corrosion. To mount the 4-pole connector outside the vehicle I paired this product with 18144 and 18140, at the suggestion of customer service at e-trailer. (Customer service was wonderful!) This worked splendidly. I'm very happy with the end result, and considering my total cost was about 1/3 to 1/2 the price of a factory installed version I don't think there's a better option. Incidentally, I have a Curt hitch which has round bars underneath. This posed no problems for the no-drill mount. It seems to secure tight enough to remove all play from the mounting bracket (18140). All in all I'm very happy with customer service and all three products I used for this project. 48966

Delivery was amazing. Ordered on Monday and had the products on Wednesday. I am 71 and a retired desk jockey but was able to install the hitch and wiring harness on my 2016 Explorer in less than 3 hours including my coffee breaks. I used a small hydraulic jack to lower my exhaust onto a car support and then used the same hydraulic jack to lift my hitch while I bolted it up. The install would have gone faster with 2 people but there were no problems doing the installation by myself other than using more time. My only suggestion would be for you to offer a completed package for the hitch and wiring harness installation. I searched your reviews and was able to get everything I needed including the extra long zip ties but after the installation was complete I realized that I forgot to order the tester. But everything worked great when I hooked the trailer up. Great product, great price, great delivery and easy installation. Why pay UHaul $400 plus or Ford $600 plus for the same parts and installation ? You can do it ! 384900

Exactly what I was seeking to secure my 4-plug device to a tow-bar & tidy-up the excess wiring under my hitch. My wife shook her head in disbelief when I told her the installation would be quick & easy (it never is, right)? Well it was! Had this little baby installed in about 30 minutes. Finally, my self-installed electrical system for towing is complete & looks professionally done. 290925

This mount worked great! Installed in minutes. I paired it with the mounting bracket 4 pole flat (18144) that you can also purchase. They both make the 4 pin connector look professional and keep the wires from dangling down from trailer hitch. Excellent product! 154302

Installed on a Curt trailer hitch part # 13408 for a 2004 Jeep wrangler. Mounted the 4 pin flat mounting bracket (part # 18144) to it. Makes it so you do not have to drill mounting bracket into hitch or bumper. Holds very tight in hitch! Installation was simple, fast, and clean. Highly recommended. 241864

Bought this along with the hitch C13143, wiring harness 56083 and bracket 18144. While the hitch and wiring harness went on as described, and I have nothing but praise for the product and service (and YouTube videos), these two brackets were not made for my Lexus. The hitch is too far back and up for these to work as advertised. However, I figured out if I cut the cover a bit more, I could mount these right behind the side hole in the hitch, and they are accessible but also out of the way, and out of sight. Needed a bigger clamp, but lucky I had one in my workbench. Check out the picture for how it looks. Make sure your trailer wires are long enough to reach to it. Don't cover the hole for your locking mechanism! 415087

Product went together well and provides a sturdy mount for the 7way connector. Only issue I have is I don't really like how far down in hangs below the hitch. I go off-road on occasion and I am worried it might snag on a rock and get torn off. It would be great if the hitch itself had a 7way mount incorporated in the design that sits level with the receiver. 363381

This product was perfect and the video for putting it together with the hopkins wiring plug worked perfectly! I simply bought this product to take place of my old one. 235562

by:


easy to install although it's really made for a square tube hitch. I slid it over a part of the safety chain bracket so it had a square surface to keep it level. Maybe you can see it in the pictures. The clamp is very long so I had to use zip-ties to tuck about 4" of the excess end around the hitch frame. No big deal though. Good product, but I wish they made one for the round tube hitches. 212725

Stop, this is not the only part. This is piece #1 to mount the lights. You need a 2nd piece. I'm still glad I bought it, I'm simply frustrated I didn't realize more was needed. My goal was no drilling of holes into my car and/or hitch. This allowed me to do that. 251441

I gave the product 5 stars as it looks and feels like it's good quality but I had to return it because it didn't fit for my particular situation. I have a 2017 Honda Pilot and the hitch receiver mounts up under the bumper and this piece is too short to extend down below the bumper. 542736

  • To attach the 4-Pole flat connector in the Tow Ready T-One Connector Wiring Harness, part # 118491 to your bumper, you will need to use a mounting bracket like the Tow Ready 4-Pole Flat Mounting Bracket, part # 18144. The bracket is 2-1/4 inches wide overall and comes with two self tapping screws and two Phillips head stove bolts and nuts. It can be attached to your bumper by drilling two holes and use the included self tapping screws. If you do not want to drill you can use the No-Drill...

  • Is there a Wiring Mounting Bracket on the Curt # C13126 Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Due to the profile of the Curt Class III trailer hitch # C13126, most of the hitch crossbar is recessed under the rear fascia of a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. Therefore this hitch does not include a mounting location for trailer wiring. Since there is limited space on the hitch crossbar, a mounting bracket is not included on the hitch. Additionally, the rear fascia has to be trimmed to complete the installation of this hitch. I have included a photos showing this hitch installed on a 2013...

  • Recommended 4-Way And 7-Way Wiring For 2006 Ford E-250 Van
  • If there is no trailer connector on your 2006 ford E-250 van, I recommend the Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, part # C56020. This is a quick and easy installation on your van. This plugs directly into your existing wiring and requires no cutting or splicing. I have attached an installation video of this wiring on a 2006 E-250 you can check out. You will then want a 4-way to 7-way like part # 30717. This will attach to the 4-way connector and along with the noted wiring in the attached...

  • What Mounting Bracket For Wiring Harness Will Fit A Curt Hitch On A 2011 Kia Sorento
  • I have the Draw-Tite 4 and 5-Flat Trailer Connector Mounting Box, # 18145, that you can use to mount to the hitch or to the vehicle. You can store your 4-Way connector in this box. I also have the Hopkins Mag-Flat (TM) 4-Pole Mounting Magnet, # 38095, that is a magnet that will attach to any metal surface and holds the 4-Way connector. Also, the Tow Ready Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat, # 18144, is a 4-Way connector holder that will attach to the hitch or the bumper. If you did...

  • Mounting Bracket for 7-Way Trailer Connector Installed on a 2013 Nissan Frontier
  • Since the 7-Way part of wiring harness # 118266 for your 2013 Nissan Frontier can be surface mounted, a mounting bracket isn't mentioned but is listed on the right hand side of the page under Related Items. The recommended bracket listed is # PK12711U. To use this without attaching it directly to the truck you can use short bracket # 18140 or long bracket # C57202. Curt also has a neat bracket that attaches around the receiver, # C58000. I have included some video links on these...

  • Comparing the Draw-Tite # 75912 and Curt # C13193 Trailer Hitches for a 2017 Ford Transit T250
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75912 and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13193 are similar trailer hitches as they are both Class III with a 2 inch receiver opening (Draw-Tite is a manufacturer name). For your towing application I recommend going with the Curt option since it has a 900 lb Tongue Weight (TW) rating and a 6,000 lb Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) rating. This is higher than the 750 lb TW and 5,000 lb GTW rating on the Draw-Tite option. Even though you...

  • How to Convert a 4-Way to a 7-Way on a 2017 Ford F-150
  • If you are just needing a 7-Way to activate the lights on your trailer then you will simply need to use the Hopkins # 37185 that you referenced along with a No-Drill Mount Bracket # 18140 as depicted at the start of the attached installation video on a 2011 Ford F-150. For a fully functioning 7-Way that has power to the Brake Controller and 12V Power you will simply need some Deka Jacketed 2 Wire # 10-2-1 and Butt Connectors # DW05745-5. You will want to splice the Blue wire from the...

  • How to Add a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • You will need a few different items to add a 7-way trailer connector to your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe because Hyundai did not offer a factory connection for a 7-way trailer connector, only for a 4-way. If your Santa Fe was pre-wired for the factory tow package, then the first item that you will want is the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118269. This will add a 4-way flat trailer connector. I have attached an installation video for you to check out. Next, you will need our Universal...

  • 7-Way Connector Recommendation For 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Without Factory Tow Package
  • We have just the items you need for your 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee without a factory tow package. In order for you to be able to have a 7-way connector on the rear of your vehicle you need to have a 4-way connector first. The 7-way connector will use the 4-way along with additional wiring. If you do not have a 4-way harness currently the first recommendation I have is the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, part # 118369. This is a T-One connector that plugs directly into your existing...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Kia Sportage
  • Yes. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13281 is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Kia Sportage SX. It is a confirmed fit for all trim models. I've attached a video of this installation for you. If you will be using this hitch for an accessory like a bike rack, Curt's warranty also requires the support strap # 18050. If you will be towing with this hitch, I recommend the wiring harness # 118698. This T-One connector will mate with your factory harness behind the tail lights on...
