Mounting Bracket for Wesbar 5-Pole Flat - tr20046

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (48 Customer Reviews)


this holder is a solid piece bolt or screw it to bumper and it stays put wont bend and holds the 5 prong plug like it came from a factory I have used it every weekend since march 1 and its solid as a rock great product shipping was fast and great prices on all their items I bought Tow Ready 4 Pole to 5 Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter also and you thing my truck came with it installed the Tow Ready 4 Pole to 5 Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter was so easy to install instructions were great... i recommend this pair to all



the product is working just as great as the day I put it in which is over a year ago. I have used it more than 200 times and its still holding except for one of MY screws I put in broke the head off about 4 months ago but the mount and plug are in use weekly and are holding up awesome. I still recommend this set to all that need to go from 4 to 5 prong and the adapter with mount are the ticket you cannot go wrong.


Poor fit for the plug. Had to use two cable ties to keep the plug from falling out.


Exactly what I needed!
Well, almost
what I needed.
I checked the order,read the instructions and went out to make short work of the installation. Of course the backup lights (and wiring) were on the hatchback without any access! So I took it to my mechanic who graciously outsmarted Lexus and got it all installed without a hitch (pun intended).

Bottom line - great products (5 pole flat plug and mounting bracket)..


I usually don't write reviews but I am going to on this one. I basically challenged myself to saving some money by purchasing a custom trailer wiring harness for my 2009 Murano. I had a little trouble ordering online since I needed a five pole setup for my trailer brakes. I decided to call etrailer for help. The woman that answered helped me down to every detail including the 4-pole to 5-pole adaptor and wiring. She was great. Now the best part was yet to come. Installing and wiring these is pretty easy accept for the painful task of disassembling panels in the rear of the vehicle. Etrailer had an "exceptional" youtube video specifically for my 2009 Murano that walked me though absolutely every little detail of the install including panel removals. It was particularly cool because I could watch the step by step video on my iPhone and stop and start it as I went along. Now how cool is that!!!


Perfect piece.
Easy ordering.
Customer Service.
Fast delivery.
Seamless transaction!


The products I purchased to wire my Wrangler for towing my boat trailer with surge brakes worked perfectly. The product quality is good. Ordering was made easy by staff. Products were delivered promptly.


Couldn't use this product because plastic bumper cover was not sturdy enough to mount this bracket.


The part I ordered was to wide for the 5 flat I purchased. I was able to make it work for my application. I will keep looking for the proper bracket. Called customer service but what was suggested wouldn't work either.


This bracket worked great with the Wesbar 5 wire flat harness , item # 20016.


Came in as described. Although the self tapping screws broke. Had drill holes and use strong screws. But mount is secure and holds 5flat end securely.


This is a good bracket but the opening is too big for the 5-flat connector (Hopkins) that eTrailer is selling.


This is a great product, it went well with my new curt hitch. I recommend this product!


exactly what I wanted to keep the wires neat and out of the way. I would highly recommend that you also by the 5-pole dust cap for additional protection


Just what I ordered good product and quick shipping.


Must have with conversion kit. Well made and help keeps things clean looking.


Good quality bracket.


Solid build, make sure it fits your 5-flat before purchase


Receives the 5pin flat perfectly


Great service, part shipped same day as ordered and worked perfectly.

Keep up the great customer service!

Have a great day.
God bless


Works as intended. Good part; good pri ce.


This gives the installation of the 5 prong plug a nice finished look. My only problem was that I had to drill holes to make it fit, but that wasn't a big deal.


Fit like it should.


Products were shipped same day I ordered, received parts whitin 3 days of ordering. Parts were exactly what I had been looking for.


Works as advertised


Useful item. Product as described.

  • What is the Distance Between the mounting Holes on 5-Pole Mounting Bracket tr20046

  • What Brand of 4-Way Trailer Connectors Fits Tow Ready 4-Way Connector Mounting Bracket
    The 4-Pole mounting bracket # 18144 is designed for Tow Ready brand 4-Way trailer connectors but could also fit other brands such as Curt wiring harnesses. Some 4-Ways have an extra thick housing that is not compatible. This seems to be the case with Hopkins brand 4-Ways so I would not use this bracket for a Hopkins 4-Way. You could instead try the # tr20046.

  • What is the Function of the Blue Wire on Adapter 4 Pole to 5 Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter # 20036
    Typically the blue wire on the Adapter 4 Pole to 5 Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter, part # 20036, is run to the reverse light circuit of the tow vehicle to provide a reverse lockout feature for the surge brakes on the trailer. If this is the case, you will remove your tail light assembly, find the positive wire that runs to your reverse lights and use the included quick splice connector to splice the blue wire from the # 20036 into your reverse light circuit. I have included a link to an...

  • How To Adapt A 4-Flat Harness To A 5-Pole Connector
    I do have a solution for you to consider however, there is currently not a plug in 5-pole harness that will work on your 2011 Ford Explorer. You are correct in that you will need to use an adapter such as the Tow Ready 4 Pole to 5 Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter part # 20036 to convert your 4-pole into a 5-pole connector. The bracket you will need to mount the new 5-pole is the Mounting Bracket for Wesbar 5-Pole Flat part # TR20046. The harness can be installed by plugging the male end of...

  • What Is The Distance Between The Mounting Holes on 5-Pole Mounting Bracket tr20046
    The Mounting Bracket # tr20046 has measurement of 1-3/4 inches from center to center on the mounting holes. Self tapping screws are included. For a no drill option The Short Bracket # 18140 or Long Bracket # 18136 need to be attach attached to the hitch and then attach the connector mount to the no-drill bracket. I attached a review video link below.

  • Will the Tow Ready 4 Pole to 5 Pole Adapter Work on a 2008 Ford Edge
    As long as your 2008 Ford Edge has a 4-flat trailer connector already installed, then yes, you can use the Tow Ready 4 Pole to 5 Pole Adapter, # 20036. The additional blue wire will simply need to be spliced into the vehicles reverse light circuit. You can use the provided quick splice or any other splicing method that you prefer. You will need to use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to test for the reverse light circuit behind your taillight assembly to ensure you are splicing the...

  • Will Draw Tite Hitch 75758 fit a 2015 Ford Escape
    The Draw Tite Hitch part # 75758 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Ford Escape. Since this already has a wiring bracket tab welded to the side of the hitch opening the # tr20046 would work well as it would bolt right up to it. Then for trailer wiring the # 118566 has been confirmed as a fit as well. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop...

  • How To Install 5-Way Trailer Connector On 2012 Nissan Pathfinder with 4-Way
    The only option to install a 5-way trailer connector on a 2012 Nissan Pathfinder is with an adapter, the Curt Trailer Connector Adapter part # C57187. In order to mount this you'll need the Mounting Bracket for Wesbar 5-Pole Flat part # tr20046. There are unfortunately no plug-in-play options to install a 5-way trailer connector. In regards to installation, you'd simply need to find the reverse light wire behind the tail lights but we don't have any videos of this.

  • How to Add 5-Flat Connector to 2014 Honda Pilot With Tow Package
    The 2013 and 2014 Honda Pilots are of the same generation, therefore they should be wired identically. I have confirmed with Tow-Ready that if you do not have wiring on your PIlot then the Tow-Ready # 118265 that you referenced will fit your vehicle. If you currently have a 7-way connector on your 2014 Pilot then the easiest way to convert to a 5-pole flat connector is to add a connetor like the Hopkins Multi-Tow Connector # HM48470. This 7-way will replace your current 7-way and also...

This adapter will have a 5-flat connector on one end and the other end will have a 4-flat and a extra plug. The 5-flat will plug into your boat trailer conector and the 4-flat on the other end will plug into your vehicles 4-flat connector with the extra plug being plugged into the extra piece of blue wire included in the kit. The blue wire will then be spliced into your reverse...

    When installing the 4 Pole to 5 Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter, item # 20036, on your 2008 F-150 you will need to use a circuit tester, item # PTW2993 if needed, to find the backup light circuit behind one of the vehicle tail lights. We have a help video that shows the process in detail on a different vehicle. I would also recommend using the Mounting Bracket for 5-Pole Flat, item # TR20046, to secure the 5-Way connector at the rear of the vehicle.

  • Best Location for Trailer Connector Bracket on 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe
    The plate you see on the hitch (see photo) provides a mounting point for the trailer connector bracket. For a 4-pole connector, you would use # 18144. For a 5-pole, use # TR20046 and for a 6 or 7-way connector, use part # 18138. Hardware is included with the brackets. If you do not want to locate the connector at this location you may be able to remove a grommet in the spare tire compartment in the cargo area of your Santa Fe and locate it there.

  • What Trailer Wiring Bracket is Recommended for the 4-Way to 5-Way Adapter TR20046

  • What Parts are Needed to Convert a Toyota Tundra with a 4-Way Connector to a 5-Way Connector
    If the 4-Way flat came on the truck from the Toyota factory, there would be no need to buy an Upgraded HD Modulite harness like part # C59496. The truck would have all the necessary electrical components in place. You would just need a 4-Way to 5-Way adapter like part # 20036. The blue wire is then connected to the reverse light wire on the truck if the trailer uses the blue wire for reverse lights. Occasionally the blue wire can be used for trailer brakes on a trailer.

  • Installing 5-Way Trailer Connector On My 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe w/ Tow Package
    You will need to plug in a 4-Way harness into your tow package and then use a 5-Way adapter. You will need to use tow package wiring # 118258 to first equip your vehicle with a 4-Way plug. Once the 4-Way is installed, you will then add a 4 to 5-Way adapter, 20036, which will need to be connected to the reverse light circuit as you mentioned. You will just plug the adapter into the new 4-Way and hook up the reverse light wire to complete the installation. Most of the wiring of part # 118258,...

  • Converting a 4 Pole Connector on a 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser to a 5 Pole Boat Trailer Connector
    Usually when you have a boat trailer with a 5 pole connector the trailer has hydraulic surge brakes and not electric brakes and you would not use a brake controller. The additional blue wire is for a reverse lockout on your hydraulic surge brakes to deactivate them while the tow vehicle is in reverse. If your boat trailer is the only trailer you plan on towing then you will want to install the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 pole trailer connector, part # 118405, and you will want...
