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.

This custom-fit base plate kit lets you hook up your tow bar to your vehicle. Tabless design provides a clean, unobtrusive look for your towed car even when not hooked up. Simple bolt-on installation.


This base plate is of exceptional value and construction. It was fairly easy to install on my 2008 Jeep Wrangler by myself but would have been quicker if I had an extra set of hands. Overall I am extremely happy with how the base plate looks and the customer service was above and beyond expectations. I would recommend the base plate and you don't have to look anywhere else than etrailers for what you need.


So far so good. Packages came intact. Everything unpacked and looks ready to go. I’ll keep you up to date on the installation. Thanks Jessica and team for keeping me up to date on the delivery.


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.

Traveled with the TOAD 10k+ miles and had no issues. Everything working very well.

Jeep Wrangler

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!

2009 Jeep Wrangler

Fit was described. This is the second demco base plate I've purchased from etrailer. Quality products, great service. What else can you ask for?


This baseplate looks to be heavy duty and very well made.



Works well, looks good on Jeep.

2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Perfect fit.



2019 Jeep Wrangler


2016 Jeep Wrangler







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.


I purchased this as part of a package which included; Hitch and wiring for my 2022 Equinox, Base plate, Tow Bar, brake System and connecting air hose, break away cables, LED tow lights with wiring harness, and a trickle charger to keep the Equinox battery from going dead while I was towing it behind my class A RV.
I had etrailer do the install of all the components on my car and RV. All the workmanship was excellent and done in the amount of time they said it would take. Also because they did not have a video of this equipment being put on this year and model vehicle, I gave them permission to make a video(which added a extra day and a half to the install)and the installation was free. Everything has worked perfectly and I couldn't be happier. Etrailer is my go to for anything towing and also RV parts.


I recently completed a DIY installation of the Demco Tabless Base Plate on my 2021 Jeep Wrangler. Installation is fairly straightforward following the 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.


I can’t say enough good about how great etrailer customer service is! Our trip was nearly a complete disaster after having a tow plate added to my jeep. We had planned to tow the Jeep and drive back to Maryland from Texas. After hours on a Friday night we found that the connectors were missing but we had to get on the road anyway, so my son drove the RV with my granddaughter and I followed, driving the Jeep. We kept trying to reach the installer but it was the weekend so we rented a U-Haul. Once we were able to ride together, we called etrailer. The parts we needed were expedited to my son’s home and now we can proceed to my grandson’s soccer tournament without having to use the U-Haul! THANK YOU ETRAILER FOR YOUR QUICK RESPONSE and saving the family trip.


I have not installed my base plate yet, but the 5-Stars is for the service I have received from etrailer I was sent the wrong base plate which fit the factory plastic bumper mine is a steel bumper, but etrailer was great about the easy return and repurchase. Hard to find companies with such great customer service.
Will update this review after installation..


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.

  • Connecting Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519292 to Demco Commander Tow Bar
    I spoke with my contact at Demco regarding the Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519292 for your Jeep Wrangler and existing Demco Tow Bar. My contact says it sounds like you have the Demco Commander Tow Bar, which features the smaller mounting holes that you mentioned. The base plate kit you purchased actually includes all the pieces you need to adapt them to this tow bar so a separate clevis or adapter is not needed.

  • Will This Demco Base Plate KIt (adapter?) Connect to a Roadmaster Falcon 5250 Tow Bar?
    The Demco # DM9519292 Base Plate Kit "adapter" that you referred to will fit your Roadmaster 5250 tow bar. The Roadmaster 5250 tow bar has been discontinued for years now. If you intend to use it now I would recommend having the bar inspected for any cracks, bends, dings, or other signs of stress that might develop into a failure.

If you don't have the standard factory bumper I've linked our selection of base plate kits for you to filter through.

  • Which Baseplate Require The Least Amount Of Fascia Trimming
    Looking at the compatible baseplates for your vehicle it looks like the two best options are the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # DM9519292 and the Curt Custom Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # C38FR. The Demco Baseplate will be a 4" x 2" horizontal cut and the Curt Baseplate will a 4" x 2" vertical cut. I recommend the Demco Baseplate # DM9519292 because the horizontal cut will be less noticeable when the baseplate is removed.

  • Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit for 2012 Wrangler
    The Curt Custom Base Plate Kit, # C38FR is a confirmed fit to your 2012 Jeep Wrangler but it does not appear that your older style Demco ExcaliBar tow bar will mate to it without purchasing additional adapters. And yes the bumper will need to be removed for installation. I suggest you go with a matching brand base plate to your already existing tow bar, such as the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit, # DM9519292.
