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.

Video Transcript for Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit Installation - 2020 Chevrolet Equinox

Ryan: Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer. Today on our a 2020 Chevrolet Equinox, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit. So there's going to be a total of five main components needed to flat tow your Equinox down the road.First one's going to be the base plate. A base plate is going to provide us with a solid and reliable connection point. That way, we can hook our tow bar up to it. Tow bar is going to be that second component.

This could actually be the physical link that connects the front of your Equinox to the back of your motor home. Third main component is going to be your safety cables and these are going to be there in the event of a unlikely disconnect. These are going to keep your Equinox attached to your motor home. The fourth main component is going to be your diode wiring. So, it's going to transfer the lighting functions from the back of your motor home to the back for Equinox, keeping you safe and legal.

And last but not least, we're going to have our braking system. The braking system is going to apply the brakes and your Equinox whenever you hit the brakes in our motor home, that way it'll bring you to a more safe and predictable stop.So, this is what the base plate is going to look like whenever you're not hooked up to your motor home and you're just cruising around town in your Equinox. And probably, the first thing I notice is it doesn't look too bad actually. It does do a pretty good job of blending in to the bottom of her Equinox here and that's partly because it isn't very bulky, so it doesn't really stick out very far or anything like that. And since it does have a black powder coat finish, that really does help it mesh or blend in with the plastic here.

Now, the base plate does come with these little caps here. So whenever you're not using the base plate, I would suggest putting these in. So, it's just push in and rotate and click into place. And honestly, I think it helps clean up or install off a little bit more, but more importantly, these are going to help keep dirt and debris and moisture from entering the base plate. And that way, everything will function very smoothly, especially from years to come and that's because the inside will stay protected.I do like the safety chain openings here.

They're up and off to the side a little bit. So they're really easy to get to, and they're extremely thick. This is solid steel. So, to me, that would give me a little more peace of mind. A nice touch to use of base plate, it's actually going to come included with a bracket here, and that's to mount up our wiring connector and our breakaway switch for our braking system. So, that bracket tucks everything back and allows you to get to it, but since it does sit a little bit further back, you're hardly going to even notice these components on the front of the Equinox.So, this is what it's going to look like once you have everything hooked up and everything's pretty spaced apart evenly and looks nice and organized and easy to work with. Now, what's pretty cool about this base plate is that the arms that actually connect the tow bar to the base plate stay with your tow bar. And that's something you don't see with a lot of different ones. Most of them have a removal type arm that you have to take out and put in and then connect your tow bar to it. So, with this setup, it's just one less thing you're going to have to worry about and one less thing you're going to have to keep track of. Now, because of that design, it's going to be super easy to hook up and disconnect.So to take it off or disconnect your tow bar, rather, I'm just going to pull out this pin and clip then simply rotate your tow bar about a quarter of a turn, and then it'll just pull right out. Now, what's cool about this design is that just about any tow bar is going to be able to pair off with this base plate and that's because there's a ton of different adapters available. So right here, we have an adapter. This is actually a Blue Ox tow bar and that adapter is going to allow these two to pair together. So, if you have a different brand tow bar, chances are pretty good. It's going to be able to work with the base plate as long as you get an adapter. That being said, you get it back in, really straightforward. So, you can see this hole right here. That's going to line up with this hole and our base plate. You put it in, rotate it about a quarter turn and simply just put your pin and clip back into place.One thing I am really impressed with is how well-built this base plate is. It's very thick steel, so it should be very reliable and really give us that good feeling that we need going down the road, knowing that everything is connected good, and we can focus on driving and getting to our destination, not have to worry about anything. I do like everything's spaced apart and really easy to get to. The wiring here and the breakaway switch, this is a little tight. However, we do have a front license plate on our Equinox. If you're in a state that doesn't require it, it would be wide open and a lot more accessible.Now, one thing I do want to mention is the use of a high-low adapter which is this right here in the back of our motor home. Now, I bring that up because you're going to want your tow bar to be as level as possible, just like ours is today. So that's really going to depend on the height of your motor home hitch and the height of our base plate here on our Equinox. So on our vehicle today, from the center of the base plate, opening down to the ground, is about 14 1/2 inches. But keep in mind that measurement could potentially vary a little bit, depending on what model Equinox you have and et cetera. But the reason I give you that measurement, 14 1/2 inches, is you're going to want to measure your motor home's hitch, from the center of the pin hole down to the ground. And you want that measurement to be within three inches of each other. So that's going to determine what size high-low adapter that you're going to need.So in comparison to some of the other base plates available, this one's really going to give us that clean look and that option of being able to work with many different types of tow bars. Now, as far as the installation goes, it is a little involved. You do have to remove the fascia, but I will say everything is relatively easy to get to. So, as long as you take your time, you shouldn't have any issues getting it done. Speaking of which, let's go ahead and do that together now.To begin our install, we're going to be working here at the front of our Equinox. So, you're going to want to go ahead and pop the hood and the first thing we're going to do is remove six fasteners along this top edge of our grill. So, here's what the fasteners look like. We're able to pull all of those out using a T15 Torx head (drilling sound). Now, if we move to our front wheel wells, you can turn your tires in a little bit to give us more room, but we're going to have five T15 Torx bit fasteners that we need to pull out (drilling sound). Once we have all those removed, we can grab your wheel well liner. So, you pull it down or off to the side, out of the way. And if you look right up here, where our fascia meets our quarter panel, we're going to see a seven millimeter fastener with the head up top, bolts facing down. We're going to need to pull that out as well (drilling sound). And I'm just going to repeat this same process over on the other side.Now, underneath the front edge of our Equinox, we're going to have six fasteners that we're going to pull out and we'll do this using a seven millimeter socket (drilling sound). So, more or less three on each side here, like that. Then on the very corner of our fascia here, we're going to have a small rivet and we're going to drill that out and that'll free it up. And one side of this one's rolled and we do the same thing over on the other side and just put it in center and drill upwards (drilling sound).So now, with an extra set of hands we can remove our fascia. So, what I like to do is just put some painter's tape here along the edge. That way, it pops out a little too hard. I'm not going to have to worry about scratching up the paint or anything like that. But what you're going to do is start on your wheel well sides and just grab the edge and just carefully lift up and pull towards you and that will release these clips here. Once you get to about the headlight, you can carefully pull away and don't yank too far just yet because if you have any electrical connectors or anything, we're going to need to disconnect it. So, in our case, we do have a connector here on the passenger side. That's what it looks like. So, we're going to really sit at it, take this red tab, push it down, and then push down in the center of that tab there and separate the connector. Now that we have this free, we can take our fascia. and set it off to the side somewhere safe.Now we can do is remove our driver's side headlight. So, we're going to have a total of four fasteners. Two of them will be up top here, and those are going to be seven millimeters (drilling sound). So, get those pulled out (drilling sound) and move on to the other two. The other fastener is going to be tucked back a little bit underneath the headlight, right here. The last remaining fastener will be this one right here (drilling sound). Once you have that pulled out, we should be able to grab our headlight and remove it, carefully pull it out. We'll probably need to disconnect it. So, we have this connector here works like the other one, just push out on that red tab, squeeze the center, and release the connector. We'll just go ahead and set my light off to the side.At this point, we can remove our washer fluid tank. So, starting up here at the top, our filler neck, we're going to have a 10 millimeter bolt that we'll pull out (drilling sound). And so, you have that out. We can move on to some allers that are along this edge. One of them was going to be right here (drilling sound). We're going to have a nut right there (drilling sound). And we're good. I have one more, but before we take that last fastener out, we're going to get everything unplugged first. Pull that fastener out and then we'll be able to remove our entire tank.First thing that we're going to disconnect is our lines. So we're going to have one right here and one right here. Now, the way these work pretty straightforward. If you just squeeze in on these sides here and pull out, you're able to separate the lines. Do that for this one as well.We're going to have a total of three electrical connections. We'll start with this one, pull down on the red tab, push in on the center and work it free. These other two are going to be a little bit different. You're going to need a small flat-head screwdriver. And what you're going to do is just pry underneath the head of this little clip here and, we're able to pull it up and free it. So, this is where my screwdriver was. You push up on it, you're able to release, and it's the same deal for this one right here.And finally, we can remove that last fastener. It's a 10 millimeter, right here. And when we pull this out, we should be able to free up our washer tank (drilling sound). Once I have that removed, you can pull out a little bit and just sneak our washer tank down and out or we can set it off to the side.If you look right here, we're going to have this little air deflector on each side of our Equinox and there's a diagram and the instructions, and they want us to cut out a portion of that. So, I just marked it out with a yellow marker there, and this is pretty thin rubber. So, I'm just going to use a pair of snips to open it up (snipping sound). I have this side done and do the same thing over on the other side. Now, we can do on each side is pull out four of the bolts holding on our bumper beam. So, these are going to be a 13 millimeter (drilling sound). We get all these removed (drilling sound).And then what we're able to do is take this bracket. They are labeled, site-specific, so be sure to check that and you're going to want to fashion it this way. So, this edge here is pointing towards the back of our vehicle. The way it's going to work; this is going to get sandwiched in between our frame and our bumper beam and these big slots are going to line up with the bolts that we removed. So, we'll just pull out a little bit and put in our bracket, line it up with the holes and they're just going to take that factory hardware and get it started. We just want a couple turns on it. We don't want to run it all the way down. Once I have this last one, got to repeat this process, and we're on the other side. Now, with an extra set of hands, we're going to take our base plate, put it into position.It's going to go like that. And what we're going to do is take our bolts here and all the hardware that we use from this point on to hold on a base plate. You want to put on some blue Loctite, which I've done, and we're just going to take that bolt, run it through our bracket and into the inaudible 00:15:53, may have to kind of maneuver it around to get it lined up, but that's normal. We'll push that in. Take that same bolt to the bottom one. Try to get that going as well. Then on the backside of the bolts that we put through, we're going to take the nine unlock nuts. We're just going to get them started hand tight for now. So, now what you're going to do is push up and back on your base plate and you want it to be as high and tight as possible on this edge and as far back as possible on this edge here.So once you have it in place like that, you use a couple of clamps to secure it and hold it there. And then what we're going to do is start to drill out our holes. So, we'll just use the holes in our base plate as a template. What I'm going to do is get one started up top and then inaudible 00:16:50 started here on the side. That way we can kind of evenly distribute everything.Whenever you're drilling, be careful. You don't want to punch all the way through and you could potentially damage components behind there. So, just keep that in mind. Be careful when you get close, you don't want to try to punch all the way through if you can help it (drilling sound). So I'm going to do this one hole at a time here. So, once I punch here one, I'm going to take one of these bolts and put on some Loctite. I'm going to push that through then on the other side of the bolt, we can loosely secure it with a lock nut. So I'm going to do that same thing for this hole right here (drilling sound). But those two end, what I'm going to do is use a 9/16 socket wrench, snug these down. That way we can remove our clamps and work on drilling the rest of the holes (drilling sound).The clamps out of the way, what I'll do now is come back and drill out this hole, this one, and this one down here. Once I have them drilled out, I'll come back with that same hardware combination, put our bolts through and tighten them down. Once I have all those drilled, the bolts in and tightened down, I'm going to repeat this same process over on the other side (drilling sound). So if our holes drilled and hardware in place, we'll come back and snug them all down (drilling sound). Well, with all of these snug, we can come back and tighten down these using any 19 millimeter or three quarter inch socket (drilling sound). And then we can come back and tighten down the four bolts here, holding on each side of our bumper beam (drilling sound). Now, we can grab our torque wrench and tighten down all of the hardware to the amount specified in our instructions (silence)(beeping sound).At this point, I went ahead and installed our safety cables. So, what you do with these is you take this D-ring here, put it through this opening here in our base plate, just take the included cable and you want to wrap it around your frame. So, I just wrapped mine twice just to kind of get some of the slack out, attach both ends to this D-ring and that's all there is to it for that. So, once you have it on this side, you'll do it to the other side as well.At this point, you can trim your fascia according to the diagram and instructions and reinstall everything the opposite way that we removed it. However, what I'm going to do, what I suggest doing is, right now, it'd be a perfect opportunity to install other flat tow components, such as your wiring braking system and so on. That's because we're going to have all this extra room to work and will make life a lot easier. So, that's what I'm going to do now. Once the components are on, I'll reinstall the fascia. Now, I do suggest before installing other flat tow components, just you put back in your windshield washer fluid reservoir the way that you remove it. That way, we're not going to accidentally install other components right here, run wires there, and then in the long run, having this interfere with that. So, I'm putting this in first. That's something we're not going to have to worry about, and we know that we need to work around this.Now, we can go ahead and do is trim out our front fascia. That way, it'll clear the base plate and our other components. So, there's a diagram and instructions. So I'm just going to take out this little area here and this pretty thin plastic. So, I'm just going to use a pair of snips to cut those out, maybe able to use a utility knife or something like that or a Dremel tool would always work fine as well (trimming sound). Now that we have our bumper trimmed out, you can put it back on the front of our Equinox and reinstall it the opposite way that we removed it. And that'll finish up our look and our installation of the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit on our 2020 Chevy Equinox..

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.

I have purchased few items from etrailer and I was always very satisfied with your website, customer service and delivery on time.




by:

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.)

best price.

Easy install, even easier to hookup, and looks great when not in use / barely know it's there.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
