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.

Review from a similar Demco 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

Review from a similar Demco Tabless in Base Plates

Easy to install. Straight forward design. Confusing item labeling. Washer or spacer without any type of measurement is confusing. Use #4, spacer. Use #19, comparison or description of the item besides that. 608267

Review from a similar Demco Tabless in Base Plates

This base plate was easy to install and I never attempted anything like this in my life. The instructions were very clear and easy to understand. I had to purchase a torque wrench and some facia removal tools, but the installation went very smoothly. 546470

Review from a similar Demco Tabless in Base Plates

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. 633859

  • Recommended Wiring Harness and Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2018 Ford F-150
  • There are a few parts you are going to need to flat tow your 2018 Ford F-150 and for a wiring harness I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 because it's coiled cord is resistant to water and corrosion, and because it comes with a 6-way and mounting bracket. You will need to use Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay # RM-88400 as well to keep your 2018 F-150's brake signal from overriding the turn signal sent by your RV The other parts you need are base...

  • Parts to Flat Tow a 2018 Ford F-150
  • There's a number of parts you need to flat tow your 2018 Ford F-150 behind your diesel motorhome. Starting with a baseplate kit and compatible tow bar I like the Demco products. The base plates # DM9519318 are hardly noticable when you're not towing and the Excali-Bar tow bar, part # DM9511009, pairs right up with them. Demco's tow bars also have independently moving arms which can make them easier to hook up to the base plates. They also include safety cables so that's one less thing...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Ford F-150
  • For lighting for flat towing your 2016 Ford F-150 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 tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV. The base plate kit part # DM9519318 is a confirmed fit for...

  • Tow Bar and Base Plate Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-150
  • The Demco base plate kit you referenced, part # DM9519318, is compatible with your 2015 Ford F150. The Demco Exali-Barl, part # DM9511009, is a good choice for a tow bar. Its 10,500 lb capacity will accommodate your F-150 with no problem, and the safety cables are included. There are several options for wiring your F150 for towing (see link), I would recommend the Hopkins Custom Wiring Harness, part # HM56000. This harness is compatible with supplemental braking systems like the...

  • Comparting Roadmaster and Demco Parts to Flat Tow 2016 Ford F-150
  • There is little difference between the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-524431-5 and Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519318, each of which fit your 2016 Ford F-150, as both base plate kits will give your truck a clean look and come with complete instructions. The photo I added is of the Roadmaster # RM-524431-5 base plates on a '16 F-150 and there is an installation video for the EZ5 base plates on a 2016 F-150 which I linked for you, though there is not one for the Demco.
