Simple, Tabless Design

Setting up these tabless base plates for use with your Demco tow bar is fast and easy. They easily bolt onto the ends of your tow bar. And because the tabs remain on your tow bar at all times instead of protruding from your vehicle, your car maintains a clean look when it's not being towed.


Easy Hookup and Disconnect

Demco Base Plate Tabless Hookup

Using the Demco Tabless base plates to attach and remove your tow bar couldn't be easier. With the base plate tabs attached to your tow bar arms, simply insert the tabs into the receivers on your vehicle and twist to lock them in place. Insert the included pull pins to add an extra layer of security, ensuring the tabs stay put. To remove each arm, simply tug the pull pin to disengage the lock, twist the tow bar arm, and pull the tab out of the bracket.


Receiver Covers

Keep dirt and debris out of the base plate receivers with the included covers. These high-density polyethylene covers easily snap into place over each pull point when your tow bar is not attached. Limiting internal corrosion makes it easier to slide the tabs in and out and helps to prevent seizing so that the tabs don't get stuck.


Tow Bar Adapters

Demco makes adapters for use with other tow bars so that you don't have to go through the added hassle and expense of replacing your tow bar when outfitting your new towed car with base plates.

I received the parts from etrailer much sooner than expected. They ship very fast.
Unfortunately some of the hardware was missing. The box arrived a little beat up. The bag the hardware came in was torn open. It seems that a few nuts and bolts were lost in transit. Since my shipment arrived on a Saturday, I did not wait until Monday to call for replacements. I went down to local HW store and bought what I needed. Fitment was excellent and installation went very smooth. I will continue to shop etrailer for all my towing needs.


Comments
Sorry about the missing hardware! Customer Service will reach out.

2004 Jeep Wrangler

Installed the base plate on my 2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport. Appears to be very well made. Had one problem with install. The 4 holes where the center bracket mounts to base plate were not even close to lining up. Had to redrill all 4 holes. This could be a result of something being altered on the Jeep. Never the less, it wasn't that big of a problem.

Relatively easy to install, works great, less obtrusive than other brands. Instructions are clear, quality is good. Shown with knuckles removed. As you can see, I had to improvise to mount the coiled cord socket and breakaway switch.

Installation went well! The pictures in instructions are a bit hard to decipher! Using it in a few days. It is a replacement my last CR V 2003 was totalled in an accident had a Blue Ox before seems comparable!

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


Really good tow bar. It has pulled my Jeep Cherokee for over 7,000 miles this year with no issues. Only problem was when I had to do a u-turn with minimal turning room and one of the storage pins on top of the tow bar got bent.

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


I recently completed a DIY installation of the Demco Tabless Base Plate on my 2021 Jeep Wrangler. Installation is fairly straightforward following the etrailer.com videos. A couple gotchas on the videos.

First, one of the videos suggests removing a sheet metal plate to provide easier access. While it does make for easier access during removal of the bumper, you should reinstall it BEFORE installing the base plate. If you install the baseplate first, there is insufficient clearance for the bolts that hold the sheet metal plate.

Second, the videos show reinstalling the plastic air dam after reinstalling the bumper. At least on my 2021 Wrangler there is NO way you could do that without seriously bending, and possibly breaking the plastic dam. Reattach the dam to the bumper BEFORE reattaching the bumper. Clearances for rebolting the bumper are sufficient. I did it without a lift (thank goodness for the Wrangler’s high ground clearance).

Bottom line is it’s a bit of a project but looks great.

Was missing tab nuts had to make two trips to tractor supply to get new bolts and nuts.


Comments
For the base plate the manufacturer recommends using the hardware that comes with the base plate. I will have our customer service team reach out to you so the hardware can be sent out.

Awesome product but definitely not for home installation. However once installed it’s simple to attach and detach towed. We tow a Cherokee behind a 40’ class A. You can hardly tell it’s there. It takes me less than 15 minutes or less either way.

The reinstall kit for the SMI stay and play duo braking system was exactly what I needed we removed it out of a 2012 Cadillac SRX and a RV shop will be installing it in a 2020 Jeep Wrangler I will send pics of the final installation later on this month ! Great product was delivered with all parts needed in three days and as usual great customer service !

As with all Demco products that I've purchased, this baseplate kit is extremely well engineered, expertly manufactured and work exactly as advertised. The installation instructions are easy to follow and understand. This is one worry free produce that will make our travels much more enjoyable.

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


Unfortunately these base plates did not fit up to the front grill near as well as past ones I have purchased from you. A lot more cutting on my vehicle was required that should not have been needed. Also having to convert my towbar to less desirable Demco attachment was disappointing. I purchased Blue Ox for a reason and would have been much happier if Ox style pins were supplied to fit Demco sockets.


Comments
As long as the Blue Ox tow bar is a hitch mounted tow bar which means that it connects to the RV via sliding into the hitch receiver then it is compatible with the base plate and does not need an adapter.

I was very pleased with the service I received from Karl. The equipment was very well made. It seems the Demco baseplate and wiring kit are superior to the Blue Ox I’ve used in the past. Thanks for your service and products.

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


etrailer is special. They have all the information you need to have about the products you are looking for. I am a first time RV owner and was looking for a way to flat tow my Jeep Wrangler. etrailer made it so easy for me to understand what I should be doing and the best and safest way to accomplish it. But that was not all. I was having issues trying to find shipping options as I had a time crunch. I phoned them, customer service was awesome. They helped me place the order and get it to my home within my time requirements. I honestly recommend them and can only wish that other companies could treat customers the way they do here. Awesome! The videos on the product pages are the best!

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


Superb, timely, same-day support from Demco when I ran into installation difficulties. The attach method is also very solid and has internal safety cables as stock, unlike some other baseplate manufacturers. (These are different from the safety cables you hook to your vehicle. These will hold the baseplate to the frame if the baseplate breaks away from the car for any reason so you don't lose the car.)

    That's a good question, and when it comes to flat towing vehicles, our recommendations often come down to things like fit and how the part installs. Blue Ox is a really good option and make high-quality products, but so does Roadmaster and Demco. So our recommendation will depend on the specific vehicle and how the base plates fit, and for your 2004 Jeep Wrangler, assuming you have the standard factory bumper, the best option is from Demco, the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519045.

    The existing Demco base plates on your 2001 Jeep Wrangler are compatible with the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7380 that you are looking at but it will depend on what particular model base plates you have as to whether or not you will need a separate adapter to connect the two components.

  • Could a 2008 Nissan Xterra Flat Tow a 2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    Flat towing is legal and using a tow bar like the Demco Commander # DM9511012 would be an excellent way to do that. You will need several other components to complete the flat-towing setup beyond just a tow bar. You will need a base plate kit for the 2005 Jeep Wrangler, this will provide the attachment point for the tow bar. For that I recommend the Demco # DM9519045 that pairs up with the Commander tow bar. Next is lighting, for that I would recommend the Hopkins # HM56202. It plugs...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Behind a Motor Home
    First, welcome to the RV club! We are always happy to have new members. To flat tow your 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sahara you will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and a supplemental braking system. First for base plates you will need to determine which bumper is on your Jeep. If it has a double tube bumper you can use Demco # DM9517046. If it has a standard bumper use # DM9519045 instead. Then I recommend the Commander tow bar # DM9511012 to pair up with the base plates. Next...

  • Which Demco Base Plate and Tow Bar Fits 2005 Jeep Wrangler
    We have Demco base plate kits that fit your 2005 Jeep Wrangler but the kit you mentioned fits the much older CJ-5 and CJ-7 models. Instead you'd want the # DM9519045 which is a confirmed fit. Then for a tow bar you'd want the easy to use Demco Commander II tow bar part # DM9511012 which also comes with safety chains. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your...

  • Base Plates and Other Equipment Needed to Flat Tow 2002 Jeep Wrangler Behind Motorhome
    For the stock channel bumper I recommend using the Demco base plate kit # DM9519045. The # BX88230 you referenced could work as well, but it would be up to you to do any engineering needed to determine if the bumper is sufficiently strong or do the fabrication to strengthen the bumper if necessary. If it were me, I'd go with the base plates from Demco because of the tabless feature. To round out your flat towing set-up, you'll need some additional parts. To go with the base plates the...

  • Will Curt Tow Bar With Bumper Brackets Work on 2004 Jeep TJ
    You can use the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745 that comes with bumper brackets on your 2004 Jeep TJ, though you will need to find a way to mount the bumper brackets. These will require a flat metal part of your bumper, which nearly always has to be fabricated - if you take a look at the accompanying photo a customer sent in you can see how they attached these brackets to their Jeep; the brackets will need to be drilled into the bumper.
