Simple, Tabless Design

Setting up these tabless base plates for use with your Demco tow bar is fast and easy. Just remove the attachment lugs from the ends of your tow bar arms and replace them with these tabs. Then you can just insert the tow bar arms into the base plate receivers to hook up. There's no need to remove the tabs from your tow bar, so you won't run the risk of misplacing tabs. 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

Demco Base Plate Tabless Pull Ear Cover

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

If you have a Demco Kwik-Tow tow bar or a tow bar from a different manufacturer, an adapter may be available. 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.

Roadmaster Nighthawk All-Terrain, Sterling All-Terrain, Blackhawk 2 All-Terrain, and Falcon All-Terrain No adapter needed

I really like the way this base plate installed. Everything fit perfect and I like the look once it was completed. It's a snap to hook up with room for error. Our Jeep pulls like it's not even there. 892538

Thanks for the great tow setup! with the videos it was a great install for my wife and I. Went on just as it should and looks super! Most people do not even see it on the Jeep. Hookup to the motor home is super easy, with the demco tow bar, and hookups. Would recommend to anyone looking to tow, look to Demco! 782260

The product itself is great. It fit fine and seems to be designed and built well. Parts of the installation instructions are not correct for my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. The front fascia has a couple of additional connection points at the bottom and it also connects to the front fender "flares" differently than the instructions show. If you do not realize the differences, then you can definitely damage your front fascia. 738099

I loved the feature of Removable arms and keeping them on the towbars. It makes connecting so much faster and easier. I also like how the Plate is so much more out of site in my car. It’s all a much cleaner look. 714556

Thank you for your help in choosing the correct items needed. I got everything needed for a successful installation.

Easy to install. Straight forward design. Confusing item labeling. Washer or spacer without any type of measurement is confusing. Use #4, spacer. Use #19, washer...no comparison or description of the item besides that. 608267

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


Delivery time was outstanding. Watched the installation video several times before beginning. Did a "dry" fit of the base into the bumper and found it would not fit. It required 1/4 inch of excess metal to be ground off of each end. This did not affect the part but certainly increased labor time. Rather than clamp the base to the vehicle for drilling, I suggest bolting it in for a more accurate placement. 613105

  • Recommended Flat Towing Setup for a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
    For your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited I recommend starting with the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519291. Then you can use the Demco Commander Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # DM9511012 which has the included safety chains as well as the integrated adjustable head for proper fit. For your tow bar wiring I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 as well as the charge line kit # RM-156-25. This kit will allow you to...

  • Can Blue Ox Tow Bar Connect to Demco Base Plate Kit
    Yes, there are adapters that will allow a Blue Ox tow bar to connect to a Demco base plate kit. For that you'd need the part # DM9523034 for if the base plate was a classic or a part # DM9523127 for if it's a tabless like the part # DM9519291 that you referenced.

  • Parts to Flat Tow 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee That Cannot be Dolly Towed
    I took a look at the owner's manual for a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it specified that the 4-wheel drive models cannot be dolly towed at all, and only 2-wheel drive models can be dolly towed if the rear wheels are off the ground. So your best option is definitely going to be flat towing your '13 Grand Cherokee, which is going to require a few parts, which I'll recommend for you: - Base Plate Kit: Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519291 - Tow Bar: Demco Commander II Non-Binding Tow...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Behind a Motor Home
    The parts needed to flat tow a vehicle are old sold separately so the lighting is not included with base plates # DM9519291. For lighting you have a couple of options. A magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A is a low-cost option. For something more permanent I recommend diode kit # RM-154. I have linked a video showing an example installation of the diode kit for you. In addition to the base plates and wiring for your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee you will need a compatible tow bar. I recommend...

    There are a bunch of great options for a tow bar that you can use with the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519291 although the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745 actually attaches directly to your Jeep using its own weld-on brackets and is not compatible with the Demco base plates.

  • Does 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Need Base Plate to be Flat Towed
    Your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee does require a base plate in order for you to flat tow it; the reason for this is because it gives you the most secure and stable connection to your motorhome and that the tow hooks are for recovery purposes and not intended to tow the vehicle. Most importantly this increases the safety of flat towing but it is also the best thing to do for your Jeep in terms of its chassis and suspension. I recommend checking out the "Recreational Towing" section of your owner's...

  • Can I Use a Roadmaster Tow Bar with Demco Base Plates on a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I have a solution for you, but Demco Base Plates are not directly compatible with Roadmaster tow bars, so you will need to use an adapter; this doesn't have as much to do with the pin size as it does the way the tow bar connects to the base plate. Without knowing which tow bar and base plates you've got I can give you some general examples that you might find helpful, but I've also linked our helpful article on Base Plate adapters that will allow you to match up the Roadmaster tow bar model...
