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.

This was pretty easy to install using the self-tapping screws, although I did add some locking washers to help make sure it was extra secure. And the trailer wire plug seems to fit well in the opening. 157914


Comments

Its been a year and the bracket is still functioning well. The only complaint would be with the interface for the wiring harness, it is a bit loose and needs some epoxy to hold it tight.

This product is EXACTLY what was needed. A draw-tite hitch had been installed, but the actual vehicle wiring plug was left hanging. 1. The bracket holes match with the Draw-tight plate. 2. Easy application; slide the 4-pole fitting through the slot. Check it is snug. 3. Put the bracket in place, apply the 2 screws and tighten. You're done, a neat professional application. 230654

The product is holding up well. The cap still seal tightly. Still a 5-star.

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! 419001

It provided a good universal adapator that you can mount almost on any flat surface and still reach it. I ended up not putting it on the hitch, so it wasn't shown and would accumulate more dirt, and ended up installing it just above the hitch on metal flange that needed just two holes drilled and it was completed. 139793

The hitch and wiring harness are working well.

Over the past few weeks, I have purchased a Class III Hitch, Wire harness and 4-Pole Mounting Bracket from etrailer.com. I installed these on a 2015 Tiguan SEL. This project went very smoothly with no smashed fingers, no blood and no tears. Just total satisfaction with job well done. My little Tig is about to become a very happy Hauler. He will soon unite with his trusty Utility Trailer. Actually, it was a very rewarding project as it went sooooooo smoothly, I almost thought something was wrong. The prompt service and thorough follow up from etrailer.com is fantastic. I have done business with them before and will do so again. 188742

This bracket definitely holds the end piece on the wiring very securely. It was almost difficult to push the wiring into this piece, but that is actually reassuring, because I know the wiring will not back itself out of this bracket. Installation was easy. I only had to drill another hole because they were too far apart for my application. The bracket is small enough that I was able to put it in a spot on the hitch so that it will not be hit by anything that traditionally messes up after-market wiring. 29657

Comments

Thanks for checking in. The trailer hitch was great and held up fantastic. Only got to use it about 4 times, but it worked perfectly. The wiring harness matched perfectly and was a breeze to install. The SUV I mounted it on didnt have enough towing capacity for my new boat, so I ended up trading it in for a newer one that had a factory hitch pre-wired setup. So the hitch receiver and wiring stayed with the SUV upon trade in. I held on to the ball mounts and the other bars and have used them a bunch for towing and launching and they are working great.

I purchased the Tekonsha 118605 T-One wiring harness but needed a mount for my 4-pole/pin connector. This product fit the bill. Though I opted not to use it as designed, I flattened it such that the opening would fit more appropriately with the existing opening in my trailer hitch (see photo). But other than that, the plug is mounted VERY snugly in place and I don't expect it to move during it's lifetime of use. 513480

The curt hitch products I ordered were excellent and a very good value. Install easy but, with my vehicle the muffler had to be lowered and two holes in the frame enlarged to fit the bolts. The wiring harness was another brand and was easy to install. I routes the 4 wat flat connector to the purchased bracket and mounted directly into the rear frame The receiver Pin & lock seem to be good quality and the lock attaches quickly and easily Note - The packaging could have been much better. Other than the curt hitch which was in its own box some items were loose in the box. Two opened items and nothing was packed tight inside the box. Example- the keys and lock cover were missing from the pkg and I found them in the packing material. 404828

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. 48965

This item is insufficient for mounting the 4 pin connector. There is nothing that fastens the 4 pin connector to this bracket. This is a problem when connecting the trailer lights to the vehicle where this bracket is mounted. There is nothing to “hold” the 4 pin flat vehicle connector, so when you go to connect the trailer 4 pin connector to the vehicle connector, the adapter pushes straight out of this mounting plate. If there was a mechanism to hold the 4 pin wire harness in place while applying force from the trailer connector, then this would work great. Since there is not, the 4 pin connector pushes out of this plate and just dangles. I would have been better off buying nothing and just having the wire dangle. 156739

Works well. Last time I installed a wiring harness I just zip-tied it to the hitch receiver. This time I decided to be a little more professional and used this bracket. Glad I did. It makes for a neater installation. 136754

I only gave this 4 stars because I've seen reviewers complain of having to order the second part separately. It does in fact show a chart on the back of this box what additional part number you need to order based on your application to make this a no drill option (it's an extension piece of metal that you screw this into then tie strap the joined pieces to whatever you wish). I could see how that would be annoying. I ordered this not intending to buy that extra piece so it worked just fine for my plan. I have a CURT hidden receiver on my truck, it has a 1/2" lip approximately 6" back from the receiver. I held the bracket up to it, marked two screw holes, drilled them out then put the black screws through attached the nuts and put my existing 4-pole connector through. It's metal on metal, secured and won't be held with a flimsy zip tie like the no-drill option. It ain't going nowhere and looks pretty good if I don't say so myself. 289302

I installed the Draw-Tite 76128 Hitch, the 118741 wiring harness and the 18144 bracket to mount the wiring plug. You can route the plug through the hole that is provided for the factory hitch wiring (it will fit through, but it is tight) and use the bracket to clean up the install. It looks pretty sweet doing it this way. 400894

I am still very satisfied with the installation as well as the products. They were put to use about a month ago towing a trailer from Central Vermont to Southeast Ohio. That was about 800 miles and absolutely no trouble.

Purchased with a Draw-Tite hitch that has the bracket welded to the cross member. No sweat to install onto hitch. Remember to mount the bracket to the hitch before installing hitch. Also, the vertical tab with the slot must face the rear of the truck to accept the plug from the wiring harness. 440975

etrailer.com is my number one source for all my SUV and Trailer needs. They processed the order(s) "before I set my Tablet down" upon ordering! Then the amazing fast shipping to top it off. Product selection, pricing and the amazing ongoing follow-up on the delivery and my ensured overall satisfaction. A huge shoutout to "George J." And no LOL....I don't work for etrailer. Just a really great homegrown USA company that gets it done! etrailer rocks! 520395

There was no problem with the bracket, just a problem of deciding where to mount it. I mounted it to the bottom of the bumper at a bracket to the left of the hitch center. I used some 1" self drilling screws to attach it. I think this will work but if it is not strong enough I can mount a steel bracket to some metal and make a more solid mount. The wiring harness snapped into the bracket and I think will stay there under normal service. 88294


Comments

Bracket holds the wiring harness ok, however, when I plug my trailer plug into it I have to hold the back of the wiring harness so it does not push all the way through. This really just a minor problem

Good product, easy to install with a little patience. For a cleaner look, I went with the "drill" option and used the self-tapping screws. My Curt hitch for the 2007 Santa Fe has a nice flat surface on the hitch bar, easy to seat the bracket. Use a 1/8" high-strength bit and take your time making the holes. The self-tapping screws are a bit flimsy, but do the job. Mounted the bracket to the right of the hitch b/c there was lots of slack in the wiring harness. Wrapped the wiring in corrugated shield and zip-tied to the hitch for a snug fit. No more dangling wires. 106826

Cheaper metal used. Should be a bit heavier and come with the NO Drill bracket. That way the buyer can decide up front which way to go. Without the No Drill bracket, this bracket will hang down and be visible where as the hitch isn't on my Santa Fe. $5 for this bracket is fine, but $15 for the other bracket is a bit much. 572222

Installed along with a no drill mounting bracket part # 18140. Wiring harness used was the T-one wiring harness part # 118409. Holds 4 pin connector in very tight. Recommended! 241867

As basic as this part is, it's just as crappy. Didnt even bother trying to install it. Sony waste your money. I was going for a perfect nice secured fir for the connector, this wouldn't provide that. 572617

Last February I installed my hitch and the optional light. Upon recently becoming aware this mounting plate was available, I ordered and installed. I chose to install the mount backward from what is intended to recess the wiring connector back into the hitch area as much as possible, to protect during the harsh winter months. This also helped eliminate a protruding connection when the hitch light is installed. Very simple to install, looks and functions great. 129446

What can I say but this was the easiest trailer hitch install I've ever done. OK, this was the third one (85 S-10 blazer, 96 Astro van, and this is the third). Our 03 Envoy (traded it in for the Equinox) and 02 2500HD (still have) both have factory hitches. It was delivered by UPS ground late afternoon and by 6:30 I had it installed. Jacked up the rear of the Equinox, placed two jack stands and followed the instructions. I will say Watch The Video for the install and it is that easy. I chose this hitch as it required no grinding or enlarging of the holes as the other hitch (Curt model). The video was spot on. I did apply some antisieze on the bolts as I always assume I will need to remove it at some future time. There was written instructions that I did look through but they matched the video. I did not use a strap to hold the exhaust as the video and the instructions showed. I used a bungy cord and adjusted it for a similar drop as a strap. I wanted to do this as I felt I may need to drop exhaust even more than the instructions as I installed this by myself. If you have an available friend it will make it easier to hold the hitch in place and start a nut on each side rather than using both hands and one leg. Working with etrailer was easy. This order was delayed by another item I had bundled together with it. The email communication from etrailer was appropriate and let me know what was going on. The delay was not a real issue as we special ordered this car and it took about 6 weeks to arrive. We keep our vehicles forever (still have the S-10 and the Astro) and I look forward to this hitch providing us years of trouble free service. I was quite impressed with the craftsmanship on this hitch, the welds were perfect. The entire hitch except where the receiver goes in is hidden behind the rear valence. Thank you etrailer! 400540

Arrived quickly. As advertised. Fit the bracket on my DrawTite hitch for my 2017 Toyota Rav 4 with no drilling using included nuts and bolts. I haven't had it long enough for any rust to form on the mounting hardware (nuts and bolts), as noted by another reviewer. Simple 5 minute install. 336955

Drilled pilot holes in the vehicle cross member and used the self tapping screws provided with the bracket to attach it. I don't see why there are 2 brackets recommended to use in the hitch wiring video. This bracket should have been made to attach to the cross member without drilling. 723403


Comments

The second bracket recommended in the wiring harness installation video for your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is a No-Drill Bracket. This second bracket allows the 4-Pole Mounting Bracket to be installed without having to drill into a cross member or other body component. The No-Drill Bracket is not included with this Mounting Bracket because the No-Drill Bracket is available in two lengths: Short # 18140
No-Drill Mount for Electrical Mounting Bracket - Short
$12.95
and Long # C57202

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2019 Chevy Equinox
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 76419 is an excellent trailer hitch for your 2019 Chevy Equinox! For wiring there are a few different options depending on what exactly you have but I do recommend going with a Tekonsha T-One wiring harness as we have found that they have the most reliable trailer wiring out there. If you have the tow package on your Equinox then you need the T-One # 118285. If you don't have the tow package then you need the T-One # 118759 for the Premier or the T-One # 118750...

To install this harness you simply need to open the tailgate and then open the access panel in the storage compartment on the driver's side and insert the connector into the tow plug harness.

  • How to Route Trailer Wiring Permanently to the Outside of a 2013 Acura MDX
  • The Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75614 for your 2013 Acura MDX is now the only option that comes with the mounting location for a 4-Way mounting bracket. Hidden Hitch has been discontinued. In addition to the hitch and the wiring you will also need bracket # 18144. For wiring harness # 118424 or any of the wiring harnesses for the vehicle you can route the 4-Way through the vehicle and outside to attach it to the bracket rather than storing the harness in the vehicle when not in use. To...

  • Can Trailer Wiring Harness for 2017 Subaru Outback be Routed to Outside Instead of Out of the Hatch
  • I have a possible solution that will allow you to mount a trailer wiring harness 4-Way on the outside of your 2017 Subaru Outback instead of running the wiring through the hatch. 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. Then look for a grommet through which you can route the 4-Way end of the wiring harness through. If no grommet exists you could...

  • Is Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness Safe to Install on 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • If you are concerned with keeping the OEM wiring safe on your 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan then the Curt T-Connector # C56403 that you are looking at is actually the perfect solution! Yes it does tee in with the tail lights on your Tiguan but those basically just act as triggers. Since this wiring harness draws power directly from the battery on your VW and it uses an integrated module (the black box) so if anything were to become damaged from your trailer the ModuLite would stop it. The only...

  • Recommended Wiring Harness for 2016 Nissan Frontier Without Tow Package
  • For your 2016 Nissan Frontier without a tow package, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118266. This will allow you to easily connect to your factory wiring and have a 7-way. If you only want the 4-way flat since you are using a small trailer, you can alternatively use the # 118525. Many with even small trailers prefer the 7-way but you can use an adapter like # 47345 or a 7-way with integrated 4-way flat like # HM40950. For the trailer hitch,...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for 2018 Chevy Equinox
  • Since you have the wiring connector, you most likely have at least the wiring portion of the tow package and can use the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package # 118285 which includes the relays. The models without that wire harness connect in a different location completely using # 118750 which connects behind the driver and passenger side tail lights. These harnesses will mount below your vehicle, so I recommend using a mounting bracket like # 18144 and # 18140 to secure...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2013 Infiniti JX35
  • Both the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 76031 and the Curt Class III # C13126 referenced in your question are confirmed to fit your 2013 Infiniti JX35. Between the two models, I do recommend the Draw-Tite # 76031. The crosstube design on the Draw-Tite drops down as it extends to meet the receiver, which in turn exposes it a bit more under the rear bumper of your vehicle. This is simply going to provide more mounting space for which to mount a connector bracket...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2003 Dodge Durango
  • For your 2003 Dodge Durango, the Reese 37069 is not a fit. You will instead want the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75081 which is made by the same company and is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. You may also want the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches # 63201 for a lock and anti-rattle designed for this hitch. If you need trailer wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One # 118334 if you don't have the factory tow package or # 118381...

  • Does a 2010 Toyota Highlander With Factory Tow Package Have a Converter?
  • Since your 2010 Toyota Highlander has the factory towing package there will be a converter and you will only need to plug in the 4-flat wiring harness # 56042. To know if it has a converter - which will come with the factory tow package - you need to call your Toyota dealer and give them your VIN. They will be able to tell you everything that came with the vehicle, including whether or not you have the tow package.

  • Recommended Equipment to Tow a Boat Trailer with a 2016 Ford Explorer Sport
