Video Transcript for etrailer.com Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier License Plate Mounting Brackets Review

Randy: Hey guys, it's Randy here at etrailer.com. Now when hauling cargo with a cargo basket, a very common problem that our customers run into is that their license plate becomes blocked. And in most situations, you're going to be fine cruising down the highway. Nobody's probably going to bug you, but if they want to be a little picky, they could pull you over for that. If your license plate isn't clear and visible on the back of your vehicle, well, you're breaking a law. So what we've been able to do is create a set of brackets here.

That'll help to relocate that license plate. It's just going to require a couple of 10 millimeter wrenches, get it on your cargo carrier, nice and secure. This is our etrailer cargo carrier, but this is also going to work with any other cargo carrier that has the three quarter inch by three quarter inch square bars. Uses the license plate and the brackets simply holds it in place. And it really solves that problem.

So regardless of where we go or how the officer happens to be feeling that day, we're not going to run into any issues.Now to begin our installation process, we'll need our plate removed from our vehicle. I'm just going to take our clip, bring it around the carrier it sets around, we'll bring our plate up in front. We'll place our bolt through. Just kind of hold that in place and then we'll thread on our nylon lock nut on the backside. I'm going to get both of these started first and then we'll get them snugged down.

Once we have those bolts started, we want to take most of the slack out of it. Going to need a couple of 10 millimeters. We'll just get it positioned where we want it, and then snug them up.We don't have to tighten these up crazy tight or anything. We just need them to snug, those nylon lock nuts. We won't have to worry about them backing off.

As you can see, it just takes you a couple seconds here, get our plate installed and be sure we're meeting all the requirements of the law. We won't have to answer to anybody. Overall guys for the minimum work that it's going to take to get this relocated with just a couple of wrenches and tools, I think it's a very good idea. Finally, we have a solution where we can get our plate back there, get it visible and make sure we don't have any interruptions during our trip..

Excellent service. My order was delivered on-time. The part worked like a charm. Attached precisely on the back of my carrier cargo and I was able to hang my license plate. It gave me piece of mind since I was driving from MD to TN and I had a large box that originally would be covering completely my license plate. With the plate mounting brackets, I was able to hang my license plate with no issues.

Another use for the tag brackets. Got tired of trying to fit rods in back of truck on fishing trips. Thanks

Perfect to attach to our hitch on our Audi Q7. We drive to Telluride 3X a year and CA at least once.We have 2 dogs and this frees up so much space inside the car. Did not want a roof rack and we can pull it off once we get to our destination!! Very happy w/purchase !!

Used these brackets to mount taillights on my hitch cargo carrier. Worked great. I had to go to hardware store and get nuts and lock washers; the nuts with the trailer lights were flanged and too wide. Next project is to figure how I can adapt single bicycle carrier to the rear of my cargo carrier. Thanks

  • Length of Shank on etrailer Cargo Carrier for Spare Tire Clearance of Jeep Cherokee
    From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier # e98874 when it is folded down is 19-1/2" so I'm pretty confident this will work in that orientation. You can measure from the center of your hitch pin hole out to the furthest edge of your spare and make sure that it's under 19-1/2" just to verify. When the carrier is folded up that reduces the clearance by 10" so from the center of the hitch pin hole to the carrier will be 9-1/2" and...

  • Anti Rattle Hitch Pin for MaxxTow Cargo Carrier With Ramp
    I definitely recommend getting the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232 with the MaxxTow 27x47 Cargo Carrier with Pivoting Ramp # MT70100. You are right that it will address the amount of movement and play that is would otherwise take place while you are using the carrier. There isn't anything that is going to totally eliminate some movement of an accessory or ball mount in the hitch, but an anti-rattle lock will make a very big difference. In regards to going over the stated...

  • Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier With Complete Trailer Light Kit And Wiring
    The 24x62 etrailer Cargo Carrier e98872 is an excellent option for a folding cargo carrier and has a 500lb weight capacity. Bargman LED Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn # 47-06-404, Rubber Grommet # 40-06-020, and Trailer Light Mounting Bracket # BK70BB will all work well together. For the wiring you will need Replacement Pigtail - 3 Wire Sealed # 40-00-003 which will plug into the tail lights and then you will need 20 Ft 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness # A20WB to connect the tail light...

  • Are Lights Required At Night For The MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier In California?
    I have found a couple California Laws regarding lights on trailers/accessories. 24600: During darkness, every trailer shall be equipped with taillights, stoplamps (24603) license plate light (24601) and turn signal lamps (24950). 24604: Whenever the load or trailer projects more than 4 feet behind the tow vehicle or obstructs the taillights, the projection must be equipped with taillamps. (magnetic lights are OK 24605) That being said, The MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106...

  • Can I Use the Ramp of the MaxxTow 30X50 Carrier on Either Side of the Vehicle?
    Yes! The MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 comes unassembled so that you can choose which side you want to assemble the ramp on. I attached our review video at the bottom of the page where you can see how the ramp is on the driver's side. The install process is very simple and can be done with basic hand tools. I do recommend picking up extra accessories like the etrailer License Plate Mounting Brackets # e98944 and the etrailer Hitch Alignment Tool # e98942 for ease of use.

  • What is the Ground Clearance for the Reese 20x47 Hitch Cargo Carrier
    Great questions! Not everyone thinks ahead when it comes to this kind of stuff so you are definitely ahead of the game. I went ahead and numbered your questions so I can number my responses and make it easier to follow along. 1. The Reese Cargo Carrier # 63155 has a 3" rise in the shank which means that the bottom of the carrier will be 3" higher than the top of the inside of your hitch receiver. When we installed the Curt # C11510 on a 2016 Infiniti QX50 we measured 13-1/2" from the...
