Video Transcript for Blue Ox Base Plates - Removable Draw Bars - BX2258 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms. This product is custom fit for 2012-2014 Honda CRV. Please note that some drilling and trimming is required. Custom fit base plates provide attachment points for a tow bar. That way you can easily and safely hook up your vehicle to your RV. This one's got a really nice design to it. Steel construction, powder-coat finish on it.

It's going to last a long time. It's going to look good for a long time. It's got a hidden reinforcement design. That means that less of the bracket is going to be visible. Less of the bracket is going to show. You're not going to really be able to see the cross-bar support beam or the large brackets.

It's really nice design once it's all the way installed. Also, these base plate tabs remove very quickly and easily. That way they're not visible when you're not hooked up to your tow bar. That's a really nice design as well. To get those removed, you pull this pin right here, rotate until it disengages, and then you can simply pull it out from that mount location. To reinstall it, place it in, rotate it until that pin engages. the kit is also going to come with these plugs right here that can be installed inside where the removable arms go.

That way you don't have dirt or grime getting built up in there. The more you can keep that stuff out, the better and easier it is to install the arms. Then it's got the attachment points right here for the tow bar. Pretty simple installation. It doesn't require any welding. It's going to bolt to the vehicle chassis. Again, it is going to require some drilling and trimming.

It is a bolt-on installation. All the necessary installation hardware that you need to get it installed is included. When it comes to the overall design, it's a very dependable design and sturdy. This, when installed and connected, it's going to spread the towing force evenly, which is going to minimize the amount of weight that's placed on the suspension. Again, it is constructed of a durable steel construction with a protective coating to keep it safe from rust and corrosion. Right here is going to be the integrated mounting points that let you easily attach and electrical connector plug or bracket. It does come with a bracket to go over the connection points, and it comes with the hardware to get that installed. That's included. It's also going to come with a breakaway bracket that can be used as well. It's going to come with detailed instructions as well as all the necessary hardware. Your cables are included. These are going to be permanent base-plate safety cables that connect to the convenience links. That's going to be these angle brackets right here. Then the other end's going connect to the frame of your vehicle. It does come with a few quick links to easily get things connected. It can be adapted for use with Road Master Tow Bars with the Road Master Tow Bar adapter, part number RM031 or RM031-5. Those are sold separately. Blue Ox does make this product in the U.S.A. The distance between the brackets on-center is going to measure 24". This is going to be a great fit for Blue Ox Tow Bars like the Adventurer, Aladdin, Allure, Alpha, Ambassador, Avail, Adventa, and Trion tow bars. The bracket height for this particular setup is going to be 15-1/2". That's going to do it for today's look at the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with the Removable Arms. Again, this is going to fit 2012-2014 Honda CRV. .

The instructional video was very helpful. The installation went very well, taking about 3 hours. Have not towed the vehicle yet, but there are no hesitations or concerns. I will definitely use etrailer in the future. 613326

2013 Honda CR-V

The base plate was fairly easy to install on our 2013 Honda C-RV. The videos on etrailer are very helpful, giving us the confidence to do the job in our own garage. The only problem with installation was that the holes didn't quite line up after removing the bumper. I think that was noted in the instructions. The removable arms work well and we have had no issues. We have been using this product towing our car behind our motor home for over 15K miles in the last year without incident. I recommend this product. 352325

Great product. Well designed and easy to install. Only difficulties during the installation are those plastic fasteners on vehicle-- suggest buying about six to have on hand for re-installation, as no matter how careful you are ...plastic is plastic, if you know what I mean. Very informative installation video that will assist anyone thinking of buying or installing this unit. If you're handy with tools, go for it! Note: I took the text from the video and created a simple instruction "list" for buddy and I to follow along, to be ensure we didn't miss any steps as pictures on actual instructions were not too useful. Also, the baseplate comes with a nice step bracket for easy break-away switch mounting, which was a plus. 225837

This heavy kit was packaged very well and arrived in great condition. I appreciated how this was mostly a bolt-on affair; the only "major" issue that I had to take care of was some factory holes in the bumper support tubes that didn't line up with the base plate, but that was easily and quickly taken care of with a 1/2" drill bit. Do yourselves a favor and watch etrailer's installation video multiple times if you plan on doing the installation yourself. The installation manual that came with the base plate isn't as clear as I would've liked. Note the torque specs for the particular fasteners and compare the packing list with what you received. Otherwise, go off of etrailer's video. If you're not towing the car the base plate all but disappears once you remove the tabs. I ended up spray painting the two bolts that fasten the 6-pole connector to the base plate black so it blends in even more. After about 2,100 miles of flat towing the CR-V over the course of 2 weeks in the Western US with a whole bunch of climbs and curves I can comfortably say that this base plate is solid. 402888

Product and installation video was quite helpful. The video made it seem simple and straight foward some of the details on the hard to reach components in the vehicle could have been more detailed. I was missing 2 of the 8.8 bolts and had to go the hardware store to pick it up. Other than that, I am satisfied with the product. 572292

Well made, fit perfectly. The written instructions furnished by BlueOx could have been better, ie, larger pages and color pics. Saving grace was etrailer video, I used that. Of course he just made it seem much easier than it actually was. Suggest you provide a time range for the average diy person. Also suggest one buy some xtra body clips as you can easily mangle a few. Also recommend purchase of the clip remover tool, and better than the flat blade screwdriver. Only real difficulity was removing the fog lite connectors, very hard while on car, but dropping the front clip made removal easier. FYI, I’m 79 yrs old so if I can do it, most anyone can. 542854
