Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat - 18144

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (4531 Customer Reviews)

Mounting bracket for 4-way flat connectors secures your trailer wiring up and out of the way. Includes required mounting hardware.


Mounts on bumper with screws. Flimsy, thin, not solid. Thin metal so connector pops out of bracket when connecting to trailer or putting harness cap back on. Better than just leaving wiring harness hanging, but not by much.


I highly recommend this product. The wiring harness locks into the bracket, and it provides solid stability.


This is a must-have with a Draw-Tite hitch if you want to run your harness outside the vehicle! It already has a mounting bracket and this bracket bolts right on! The 4 pin plug on the harness slides in from the rear and fits securely. There are some rubber ribs on the plug that hold it in place pretty well. With the rubber cover on the plug, it can't go anywhere!

In stock and fast ship!


One year follow-up: The product works as advertised. No problems at all over the last year. Installation was simple and straight forward. One comment only about the optional mounting bracket for the 4-pin connector: get/use better self tapping screws before you attempt to mount the bracket. Even though I pre-drilled the supplied self-tapping screws are very soft and snapped off. I then relocated the bracket and used my own (hardened) self-tapping screws. Overall I'm very happy with the product.

Still working perfectly after 2 years.

Everything arrived in good condition,watched video,installed in less than 1 hr.hitch& harness fit perfect with no problems ,will use with carrier to haul mobility scooter & pull trailer


Works great, I bought this thinking it would attach to the hitch I purchased but the hitch didn't have a spot to screw this into. I made it work by slipping straps through it and tightening around hitch. Worked perfectly

You can also use the mounting brackets that strap to the hitch along with this bracket. They are part # 18140
No-Drill Mount for Electrical Mounting Bracket - Short
that is shorter and part # C57202
Curt No-Drill Bracket for 6-Way or 7-Way Round Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket - Long
which is longer.

The mounting bracket 4-pole flat gets the job done. It's a little smaller than what I had pictured in my mind, but that's probably a good thing. It can be a little tough getting the harness plug set into position, but once in place I think it will do a good job of keeping it there. It makes for a nice clean look for your wiring harness. Definitely worth the cost!


Solid enough, seems to only be able to slide through one way. I put it in the other way for a cleaner look but now it doesn't hold as well. I had to put a small bead of silicone to hold it in place.


I have used this mount bracket #18144 on three different vehicles.Wouldn’t do a plug in without it so many ways to mount It. Great product. 2016 Ford Explorer


Ordering from etrailer was easy and fast. I received my order very quickly. It's very well made and the cost was the best of all the hitch manufacturers. I highly recommend this company and will use them again. Quality is outstanding and service was first class.


Works as advertised. No surprises, easy install.

Works well. A bit tight fitting to frame but that was caused by a heavy application of undercoating which has to be thinned to allow fitting. Would highly recommend.
Ronald - 10/03/2022


Works perfect, no more wires hanging down and possibly getting damaged by the pavement. Easy install and tight fitting. Didn't require additional hardware of any kind.


This was fine. 4 stars only because I thought there might be a little better way to secure the plug into the bracket other than friction. Time will tell if it's a problem or not, but so far so good.


The wiring harness was easy to install by instructions, fit my vehicle precisely and works exactly as intended. Great purchase and good experience all around!


Your website made choosing the right hitch receiver combination and wiring harness easy. Installation on my 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee was easy. Swapping out the wrong wiring harness for the right one (my fault) was easy. What more can I ask for! I plan to buy more stuff, nuff said!


Works as advertised. Wish it was offered as a kit instead of separately from the no-drill mounting bracket.


Product worked well, finding the connector inside the Toyota was a bit of a challenge but with the help of your video, mission accomplished. Would suggest using red wire instead of black for a power lead. Vey happy with the harness.


Hitch was easy to install . It fit perfectly. Super fast shipping




Because I had ordered a trailer hitch from etrailer before it was easy to order another for my my other car. I ordered a new hitch for my 2013 dodge Durango along with the wiring harness for lights. Came 2 days earlier than promised. Took me about 35 minutes to install the hitch and wiring harness as well. Probably the easiest install I've had yet. Thanks for a great product.


I don't have a real good place to munt this on my truck. I had to drill into the bottom of the bumper, which leaves it more exposed than I would like, but that's the fault of the truck not the bracket. It also took a lot of force to push the plug through the hole in the bracket. I don't think it will come loose.


Perfect setting, but would have liked more security in the cabel. Some way of locking it to the mount. It rests in there and makes it easier than fishing it out each time. However, because the wiring moves when pluging up the trailer, my smaller hands are easier than my husbands.


Everything was easy to use. The only issue I had was the plate for the lag bolts wasn’t wide enough and the bolt was free spinning. I was able to use a pair of vise grips and open ended wrench to tighten it down. Other than that great prosuct.


Works as intended. Tight fit to the plug. Use lubricant to install.


Very necessary bracket to secure your 4 pin. It comes with self tapping or standard screws with locking washers, or just sand paint away and weld it straight to the hitch. Either way, a must have.
