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.

I used these brackets for attaching the air connection and break-away switch for the SMI Air Force One braking system to the baseplate of my Jeep Wrangler. The brackets were modified (cut to fit and holes drilled) for my particular installation. They worked perfectly and make the installation look great. 705472

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


Comments

The clamp and bracket have been installed on my Jeep for about a year. It was easy to install and the bracket is functional, but unfortunately, the powder coat only lasted a few months and the bracket is now rusted.

and if you do I also recommend covering any kicked places (from road debris) with some black paint to help keep this product from rusting.

This a very useful product. It would've been to have about another 1/2 inch in length but it was able to handle the job. 204129

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

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

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

Easy to install and makes the install look professional. No dangling wires. Everything looks like it was installed from the factory. I definitely recommend this. 489209

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

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

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 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



- 18140
by:

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

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

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

We do not kit the 4-pole mount bracket with the No-Drill Mount in order to allow our customers to get the parts they need for their setup. There are two no-drill mount lengths and several different wiring connector shapes that folks might need. The final piece for your set up would be a 4-Pole Mounting Bracket like part # 18144

This product is OK but given the hitch on this particular vehicle, Hyundai Santa Fe, it’s not a great way to have an adapter be on a hitch and have good access to it. I’d rather see the adapter welded to the hitch in a manner that gives you good access for a hitch that is behind the bumper. And I’d like the quality to be the same as what OEM equipment is 714126


Comments

Draw Tite offers a hitch for the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe that does feature a bracket like this one already welded on to the hitch. Ive linked a video of this hitch so you can check it out.

was easy enough to install with the factory tow kit on my 17 Hyundai santa fe. Instruction pictures and installation video show ground (White) wire is connected to one of the electrical connectors. This was not the case as mine came with the white wire hanging loose, easy enough to install a ground connection to the frame as I did not know how to open the electrical connectors to attach the ground to the actual plug. 715350

I bought this 2" hitch receiver, 4 pole flat (18144) mounting bracket, (18140) bracket, 2" rubber hitch cover, Wiring harness (56094) for my 2017 GMC Terrain Denali. Installation was straight forward per the instructions. I was able to install this by my self. I did use a car hoist and tripod jack stand that allowed me to position the hitch in place while I installed the nuts on the two center bolts. Then I positioned the side brackets to the unibody rail with the welded in nuts that are on the vehicle for a factory installed hitch. While the SUV was up on the hoist I installed the custom 4 pole flat wiring harness and mounting brackets. This install took me about 3 hours, including installing wire conduit over the harness for protection. Thanks etrailer for supplying a great product. Can't wait to use it to pull my utility trailer with my Polaris side by side to the sand dunes. 704024

  • Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon

On the vehicle remove the flooring in the cargo area beyond what the trailer wiring harness instructions call for. Basically you need to get down to the metal of the cargo area floor.

For your application I recommend going with the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98867 because it features a matte black finish that helps to hide any knicks you may get due to road debris when compared to the glossy finishes. All of the trailer hitches for your Explorer are rated as Class III. For wiring to activate the lights on your boat trailer I recommend...

  • Recommendation For Mounting Wire Harness With Connector For 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • It sounds like you already have a hitch like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Hitch, Item # 75229, and a vehicle wiring harness like The Tekonsha T-One Wiring Harness, Item # 118681. Going with this assumption, the wiring harness will plug into your OEM package behind your rear bumper.

To mount the connector,...

  • Recommended Towing Package for 2018 Kia Soul Exclaim
  • For your 2018 Kia Soul Exclaim, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11419. This is a fit for all models except the electric EV. This hitch install requires removing the splash guards and wheel well liners. You are correct this is a fit for your vehicle. Then for your trailer wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118637.

I've attached a video of the products being used together as well as the dimensions to assist. The only difference between this bracket and the universal bracket is the slotted holes for fit.

  • Recommended Parts Needed to Tow with a 2019 Ford Flex
  • The trailer hitch that I recommend using to tow a small trailer with your 2019 Ford Flex is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75679 because it has a second, smaller, hitch pin hole that allows you to use the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset # 63201 to help keep a ball mount or accessory steady and locked. The J-Pin is useful for those accessories that don't have a locking or anti-rattle hitch pin so the ability to use this option is definitely a benefit. Then for wiring I...

  • Can this Curt Wiring Adapter # C57003 Be Left Plugged In on 2016 VW Touareg?
  • The Curt 7-Way Trailer Adapter for VW, Audi, and Porsche Towing Trailers with LED Lights # C57003 can be left in place without the trailer plugged in on your 2016 Volkswagen Touareg. It can be mounted to your vehicle permanently if you desire. I do recommend using Dielectric Grease for Electrical Connectors, 2 oz. # 11755 on your connections to ensure you keep moisture and debris out of the contact points. This will prolong the life and function of the connection and the adapter. If...

  • How To Mount a Trailer Connector To The Draw-Tite Hitch 76138 On a 2018 Mazda CX-5
  • I would try to install the No-Drill Mount for Electrical Mounting Bracket part # 18140 on the underside of your Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76138, similar to what you see in the attached photo. The bracket may also need to be bent down some towards the ground. This is a universal bracket so there may need to be some slight modifications in order to make this work for you. That said, you could drill the Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat part # 18144 directly to the underside...
