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.

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

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

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

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

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

Bolted right up. The only trick to this installation is to support the exhaust pipe just passed the muffler with a ratchet strap. Lubricate the exhaust pipe hangers. I used regular sae 30 motor oil. I think there is 4 or 5 of them. Use a screwdriver or small crowbar to pop them off. The tailpipe will drop down enough to gain access to the threaded holes in the bumper. It helps to have an extra set of hands but you could do it yourself with a jack. It bolted right up. I also got the wiring harness and it was a snap. I trimmed the driver side splash guard to fit around the hitch and it looks fantastic. Also, I got the part to attach the flat 4-pin connector. Works great. I used it the next morning and everything worked like a champ. Thanks! 290239

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

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

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

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

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 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

The short, no-drill mounting bracket was exactly what I needed to mount my 7-pin trailer connecter. I didn't want it to protrude beyond the bumper, and it mounted level with the 2" box. I also wanted it to sit farther under the truck, so it was generally out of the way. This installation was done on a 2006 Tacoma 2x4 with a Draw-Tite tow hitch, model 75236. I would recommend using some flex pipe to keep all the wires secure and covered. You can buy that at Home Depot in the electrical aisle for $3 or so. 155257

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

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

Product installed in a few minutes. Metal clamp is very strong/tight and the 4-pole bracket hole fits very tight with my plug. I wished I would have watched the 2011 Outback install video before installing my wiring. It took me a long time to get the wiring to the hitch, but after watching your video, I see there was a much easier way to go (under the spare tire)! No pics to post, but my install looks exactly like that shown in the video. 117130

The wiring harness was a perfect fit to the factory trailer connector on my 2002 Lexus RX 300. The universal brackets for the plug allowed me to securely mount the plug on my round tube [vendor] hitch. I found the factory plug in the exact location shown in the video. Although installing these items is not rocket science, the videos relating to them saved the time that could have been spent figuring it out. All in all a 15 minute job. 366923

This was the easiest purchase by far. Prior to purchase, I viewed the informative installation videos of the wiring package and bracket mount. The product came in just a few days, and as ordered. Installation was easy and I took a few tips for other reviews regarding placing the electronics in the body and away for the environmental elements. I would highly recommend Etrailer for all your towing or hitch needs. 95790

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

I have not yet installed the product because the supplied clamp was useless as reported by many other customers. The clamp could not be opened or closed from the delivered position. It has been difficult to find a replacement clamp because the ones I have found do not have the holes throughout the total length of the clamp. The bracket itself appears to be good and, when installed, will be all right. 283103

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

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



- 18140

by: Stanley05/09/2016


I believe it only took about 2 minutes to install this bracket because of the new style hose clamp. Once the bracket was in place the flat plug just snapped into place like advertised. The trailer hitch and wiring fit together without any problems and it looked like our car came from the factory with the hitch. I would recommend this hitch, wiring & accessories to my friends. 249347

Attached to the hitch tube. You need an additional bracket for your type of connector (18144 for 4-way flat). It's so nice I am getting another for my other car. 29280



- 18140

by: Mike P.07/08/2014


No need to buy this part like I did. It will not mount on a round tube hitch frame that I have. Use zip ties and you will have a spool of extra wire near the center rear of the hitch. When not using the trailer, just tuck the 4-pin wire connector inside the spool of wire to keep last bit of wire with the connector from flopping around in mid-air. 140115

I made the mistake of ordering the short bracket for my 2011 Sienna. If you have installed a Curt hitch I recommend the long bracket if you're installing a 7-pole trailer connector as well. The body of the 7-pole was impeding on my hitch making installation impossible. I've ordered the longer bracket and should have no issue with install now. 196710

by: Vince09/16/2016


I didn't end up using this product. I tried installing it on a round trailer hitch, so it was susceptible to rotating down so I ended up drilling the 4 flat bracket directly into the hitch instead. One thing for customers to pay attention to when ordering as this seems to be a good solution for a square tube hitch, not a round tube hitch. 295364

Worked great, I used it with the 4 pole flat #18144. I would tighten clamp with a screw driver, not a drill. Would be easy to over tighten if not careful with power tool. Shipping was fast.

Easy to install in a 2012 Highlander Limited with Curt Hitch 13534 Buy the universal brackets (18140/18144) to make a professional look. Easy to install, but the bracket is angled on the Curt hitch due to the assumption that it is on a square hitch facing straight back. Still looks great. 61644

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

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

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

It would have been nice to know that they make 2 different lengths , a short and a long . With the Curtis hitch the long plate would have worked much better . The short plate had to be mounted underneath of the hitch which makes it a little low to the ground 185257

it did what it said but I didn't have a vice grip to bend so I had to wing it. If I would have had a vice grip it would be perfect but my fault on that. Etrailer.com had directions but I didn't follow and had to improvise. Once all done it did it's job. 35857

This item will not work on the draw-tite hitch because the draw-tite has cylindrical tubing. This product is made for rectangular frames. No problem though because item 18144 can be attached to the plastic bumper cover right next to the hitch. 152383

  • 7-Way Wiring Harness for a 2017 Toyota Highlander
  • If you already have the 4-Way wiring harness installed on your 2017 Toyota Highlander, than all you will need to do is install the Universal Installation Kit # ETBC7. If you do not already have a 4-Way at the rear of your Highlander, and if you have the factory tow package, you can use the Curt T-Connector # 56042. Otherwise you can install the Tekonsha T-One Wiring Harness # 118449 if you do not already have the tow package. The ETBC7 kit will add a 4-Way and a 7-Way wiring harness...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Is there a Quick Connector Trailer Wiring Harness Available for a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The T-One wiring kit, item # 118425, is a quick T-connector kit that installs inline with the vehicle taillight wiring and does not require splicing into the vehicle factory wiring. This connector will provide a 4-Way trailer connector at the rear of your 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The hardest part about installing this wiring harness is accessing the wiring at the rear of the vehicle taillights. We have a video of the # 118425 Harness being installed on a 2007 model which will be very...

You could install the # 18144 bracket on the hitch easily with the No Drill Mount Bracket, # 18140, see the video installation that I attached for you.

  • Availability of a Trailer Wiring Diagram for a 2012 Honda Goldwing and 1999 Escapade SE Trailer
  • Wiring your motorcycle to tow your motorcycle trailer will require some testing and investigation of the lighting configuration on your trailer. First, check the lights on your 1999 Escapade SE trailer. If the trailer has separate lights or bulbs for the turn and stop lights then the trailer will have a 5 wire connector. In this case you will need to contact Honda for wiring for the trailer, that will protect the motorcycles circuitry. If the trailer has combined stop and turn signals...

  • 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...

  • The wiring harness you mentioned, part # HM40975-11998, is only designed to fit the 2015-2017 GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado.

  • Recommended 7-Way Wiring Harness and Brake Controller for 2007 Nissan Pathfinder with Factory Tow
  • You are correct, your 2007 Nissan Pathfinder can use the Curt 7-way adapter # C56226 in place of the factory installed 4-way. You may also want a # 18140 and # PK12711U to mount the 7-way on to the rear of the vehicle, this kit will allow you to mount it directly to the hitch with a hose clamp.

  • Running Lights Not Working on Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2013 Honda Pilot
  • You will need to make sure all of the included fuses and relays are installed and that none are blown. This includes the in-line fuses that are part of the harness. A blown fuse or relay could cause this problem. If all the fuses are installed and working properly then use a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed to test the running light pin on the 7-Way. If it has power then you know the problem is on the trailer, most likely a dirty or corroded trailer connector or bad ground at the...

  • Recommendation for a 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket for a 2011 Honda Pilot
  • After installing the T-One Connector w/Upgraded Circuit Protected ModuLite, # 118491, on your 2011 Honda Pilot, I recommend attaching No-Drill Mount Bracket, Short, # 18140, with Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat, # 18144. This will give you the clean, professional appearance you are looking for. If a longer bracket is needed, you can use No-Drill Mount Bracket, Long, # C57202, with Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat, # 18144.

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring, Ball Mount, Hitch Ball and Bracket Recommendation for a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • My recommendation for trailer wiring for your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe with factory trailer wiring package would be the Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness, # 118258. Keep in mind that this harness is a replacement harness and, if your vehicle did not have the factory connector installed when it was new, you will need to access the tow package connectors and check them with a circuit tester, like part # 3808, to be sure that the wiring is complete on your vehicle. If you find that...

  • Recommended Trailer Brake Controller and Wiring for 2013 Toyota Tacoma
  • Starting with the trailer brake controller for your 2013 Toyota Tacoma, both the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885 and the P3 # 90195 referenced in your question are fantastic controllers that represent two of the best products within the industry. You really will not go wrong with either option as they both function very similar to each other and are both well known for their reliability and ease of installation. If I had to choose, I would lean toward the Prodigy P3 for its more user friendly...

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2011 Nissan Frontier
  • You are correct on all counts. Wiring harness # 118525 for the 2011 Nissan Frontier is a newer product, it is a T-one style of connector, it does come with all the relays needed to activate the wiring, and it is more professional than a splice-in type of harness. I have included a link to the installation details for you. The only part that I recommend adding is a mounting bracket for the 4-Way. What you can do is use # 18144 with short bracket # 18140 or long bracket # C57202. This...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2017 Volvo XC90 R-Design and Mounting Bracket for Factory 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • I did some checking at the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 76014 is listed as a fit for all styles of the 2017 Volvo XC90 so that would include the R-Design. Like you said there is some fascia trimming required. If you do not want any contact between the fascia and the hitch receiver then you would just need to trim slightly more above the receiver (if there is contact). From what I could find on Volvo part 31373661 is that it is listed for a 2016 XC90 and not a 2017 so I do recommend verifying...

To make the installation easy and avoid drilling, I would recommend a no drill bracket. We have a short model, # 18140, and a long model, # C57202.
