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.

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.

2015 Jeep Cherokee

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.

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


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.

Review from a similar Tabless in 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.

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.

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.)

It’s been a year and about 5,000 miles of our JLU playing follow the leader with our Tiffin motorhome. No issues, great finish, looking forward to another season of roughing it smoothly, Jeep in tow! Great instructions made for a great self-install.

It is well built, fit as expected. Easy to install. Warning to future buyers to install on crv, the hole you drill in bumper is difficult because it is high strenght steel regular drill bit do not work well. I managed to drill it with a step bit. The baseplate needs a small decal to say "this side upward"

  • Does Install of Base Plate Kit on 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Remove Tow Hooks
    The Demco Base Plate Kit part # DM9519308 requires the removal of the tow hooks on the front of your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. If you check out the attached picture you'll see that the base plate kits basically replaces the tow hooks.

  • Does the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit Replace Tow Hooks on a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
    Yes, you will need to remove the tow hooks on your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk to install the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519308. If you wanted to use the tow hooks then you would have to uninstall the base plate kit. There is no horizontal bar that installs behind the front bumper of your Cherokee and goes from one mount to the other. These connect directly to the frame of the vehicle itself. I am not sure what other part numbers you are talking about but I wonder if they are generic...

  • Best Tow Bar for a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
    The absolute best tow bar that is offered for your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk is the Demco Dominator Tow Bar part # DM9511008. The reason for this is because it is mostly made of aluminum which means it is lightweight (only 30 lbs), has self-supporting arms that will not fall to the ground when unhooked, and has a unique hitching procedure that does not require you to step over the bars once you have made the final connection. It also has the same self-aligning and non-binding design...

  • Does Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit for 2015 Jeep Cherokee Require Removable Arms Separately
    The Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519308 that you referenced comes with removable arms and does not require you to order them separately. That said we do not have an adapter for this to fit to a ReadyBrute Elite tow bar so hopefully ReadyBrute has a solution. We only have a Blue Ox adapter part # BX88297 but that would require you to use a Blue Ox base plate instead # BX1138.

    The images of the parts you mentioned are there to show you where they would install but they are not included. If you look at the parts list you will notice that they are not included. That is a bit confusing though. The reason they are not included is because there is no way to tell what a given person might need for wiring and if they are even using a supplemental braking system that has a breakaway system, if they are using one at all.
