    • No obtrusive quick-disconnect crossbar
    • Hidden brackets sit even farther back than standard brackets
  • Drawbars attach and remove quickly and easily
    • Arms click to lock in place in brackets
    • Built-in pull rings let you unlock arms so you can twist and remove them
  • Computer-cut, all-steel construction provides exceptional strength
  • Black powder coat finish is durable and corrosion resistant
  • Simple installation - no welding required
    • Custom base plates ensure a perfect fit for your vehicle
  • Compatible with Roadmaster motor-home-mounted tow bars only
  • Instructions and mounting hardware included
  • Made in the USA


Note: Roadmaster direct-connect base plates will only work with Roadmaster tow bars that slide into a trailer hitch, such as the Sterling, Blackhawk, Blackhawk 2, Falcon, or Falcon 2. These base plates will not work with tow bars that require a hitch ball.


The drawbars, or front arms, on this base plate kit are supremely easy to mount and remove. Just insert them into the brackets and twist to lock them in place. To remove each arm, simply tug the built-in pull pin to disengage the lock, twist the arm back and pull it out of the bracket. Once the drawbars have been removed, the remaining brackets are virtually invisible. On most automobiles, the brackets are mounted within the grille, where they remain not only unseen, but protected from scrapes and scuffs as well.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plates Review and Installation - 2019 Jeep Cherokee

Hi there, Cherokee owners. Today on your 2019 Jeep Cherokee, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install Roadmaster's Direct-Connect Base Plate. They're going to be five main components you'll need to flat tow your vehicle behind your motor home. One of the first and most important items is going to be our tow bar here. The tow bar is going to be your attachment that connects your motor home to your vehicle. In addition to your tow bar, you're also going to need safety cables, which is a supplementary attachment between your motor home and your vehicle.

Now our Nighthawk here does come with safety cables included with it, and they go on these nice channels underneath keeping it nice and neat. Now if you've got a different tow bar, you may need to purchase safety cables separately.We'll also need a base plate which is going to install on our vehicle and provides the attachment point for our tow bar to hook to our vehicle. We'll also need our diode wiring, which is going to take all of our lighting signals from our motor home, transfer it back to the vehicle, so that way the lights at the back of our vehicle is going to mimic the lights on our motor home so everybody behind us knows our intentions when going down the road. And lastly you're going to need your supplemental braking system. This is going to apply the brakes in your vehicle when you apply the brakes in your motor home to assist it when stopping.

And this is what our base plate is going to look like when it's installed. What I like about this base plate is that it is two separate components, one on each side, and it just goes right where your existing tow hooks used to be.This is going to be an easier installation than other options and I think it also gives it a cleaner look, because it just pokes out through our tow hook existing hole. Now there is going to be a little bit of trimming required for some of your electrical components, but I do like that it comes with a bracket for mounting your six pole as well as your breakaway switch, because sometimes it can be difficult to find a spot for these. Another thing that I really like is that since it is just replacing your factory tow hooks, there's no drilling required, all the holes are already going to be there. There is some additional hardware that does come with your kit that you will need to install, but it pretty much just slides into place and you just bolt it down.When you already do use your tow bar, We're going to put our direct-connect inside, and this just simply slides in.

We're going to push it until the pin collapses, and then turn it until it locks in place. We can do the same thing with the one on the other side, and this is where our tow bar is going to connect. I like that they're removable because they do kind of stick out a little bit. You know, you can walk across the front of the vehicle and you might get hit in the shin. You don't got to worry about that if you just take it right off.

And then when it's off, you almost don't even notice that there's been any modifications to the vehicle. It really retains a nice factory look.Next to our tow bar attachment point, you'll have your safety cable attachment point, and that'll click right into place in there. You'll have one of these on each side for your safety cables and we can hook up our electrical connector here, and this is nice and clean using the included bracket that comes with our base plate. Now I did mention earlier that there's no drilling to get the base plate installed. This does not hold true for our bracket. The bracket will have to have holes drilled into the bumper beam going across to get it mounted up, if you choose to use it.We'll begin our installation at the front of the vehicle by removing the plastic trim piece here, at the front. There's going to be a total of 12 plastic fasteners we're gonna need to remove to get this off. We'll use a flat bladed screwdriver or a trim panel removal tool. Take your bladed end and put it in the little slot there. Pry the center piece out, and then you can remove the entire tab. We're going to remove all the tabs from this cover. Now that all of our pins are removed, we can just lift our plastic cover up and set it aside. We're now located at the driver's side wheel well. There are three bolts we're going to need to remove from the inside of our wheel well using an eight millimeter socket. Then if you follow your wheel well down and just on the bottom side, you'll find a rivet. You're going to need to drill that rivet out. You can use 1/4 inch drill bit to do so. Don't worry about drilling the rivet out, you'll get replacements with your kit.Now that our wheel well hardware is all loose, we can kind of move it around. We want to pry back our liner here, and right here on the inside, you're going to have one more bolt. We'll remove this bolt with a 10 millimeter socket. And now, we'll repeat this same process on the other side. We're now underneath the vehicle. There are several bolts along the front here that we're gonna need to remove. We're going to use a 10 millimeter socket to remove those. And now, we're going to loosen these three bolts here for your under shield. You can take the under shield out completely if you want to, to give yourself some more room to work, or you can just loosen them up and that'll give us enough clearance to be able to get our fascia off.We're now back on our driver's side fender well. We've peeled back the liner a bit, and here's our washer bottle here behind the liner. Just to the front of that washer bottle, you're going to find this large connector here. We're going to need to disconnect this. So pull back on the release tab there, pop that out, and then we can pull up on the red portion to separate the two, and now we can start pulling our fascia. Your back and your fascia is just going to pull out. It is a little difficult to get it to pull out, so I recommend using a trim panel tool to help you pop the the pieces off. You do kind of have to tug and pull a little bit to get it to go. If you pry it from the top here by the headlight, and pull down below at the same time, it can help get it to release.We're going to do the same thing on the other side. Once we've got both sides released, we're going to work our way towards the center. Keep pulling it off little by little on each side. You can then back up slowly, check for any electrical connectors that may be present. We've already disconnected the main harness connector, but depending on your options on the package you have in your jeep, there may be some additional connections to disconnect. We're now going to set our facia aside so it won't get damaged. Now with our facia removed, we're going to remove our bumper horns here. There's going to be three bolts we're going to take out with a 15 millimeter socket, and then one nut with a 10 millimeter socket. You'll want to make sure you save this hardware. We're going to take the other side off as well.Next, we'll remove our tow hooks. There are two bolts here we'll remove with a 16 millimeter socket, and there's also a nut on the backside of the shaft here that you're going to remove with a 30 millimeter socket or wrench. And if you don't have a 30 millimeter, you can use an adjustable like we are here. You'll want to save all of this hardware as well. We're going to remove our other tow hooks the exact same way.We can now install our base plates onto our vehicle. Before we do that, we want to prepare. Take the long bolts that come in your kit and put some Red Loctite on it. Now, Red Loctite doesn't come with the kit, but you can pick some up here at etrailer.com. We'll be using this on all of our hardware from here forward, this bolt is going to slide down through the center of our base plate, and it's gonna come out the hole here at the back. It can be a little difficult to get this to line up, so you may need to use a screwdriver or an extension to help you to get there to line up. Okay, now we're going to place our bracket on the vehicle. They are side specific. You want your bolt holes to be towards the outside corner. Slide your bracket in place, lining up all the holes in it with the preexisting holes. We're then going to take our original hardware that we had removed, and thread it back into those holes.We'll now take a 3/4 inch socket on an extension. We're going to go through our base plate, and put it on the bolt that we had put in there. We're doing this mainly just to keep it from pushing back through, because we're going to place our hardware on the other side now, which is going to consist of a large flat washer followed by a lock washer, and a nut. Now that we've got all of our hardware started, we can go back and tighten down all of our bolts. We also want to replace our vertical bolts going straight up. You're only going to be able to put one on the outside, as there's no hole in your base plate bracket for the other bolt.We can then go back and torque all our hardware to the specifications found in our instructions. We'll then repeat all the same procedures to get the base plate installed on the other side. Next we'll mount our electrical connector bracket, and you want to refer to your instructions. It'll tell you how far to measure over and a good location to mount your bracket. Now you're not restricted to putting it here, but this is going to be a location that's going to be clear so you can easily get your fascia back on. You are going to have to do some trimming on your fascia for your connector to be able to mount, but this is a known location from Roadmaster to fit properly. Once you've marked out the distance in your instructions, you can go ahead and take your bracket and hold it up here. To make it easier to mark it, your bracket will mount like that. But to mark the holes, you won't be able to get it in there, so if you flip it around backwards, you can slide it in, line it up with the mark you made from your instructions, and then use the two existing holes in your bracket and mark those, so you know how far apart they need to be, and then drill that out on the frame.Now take the smaller bolts that come in your kit. We're going to push those up through our bumper beam, take our bracket, we'll come around back and place it on top. We'll then thread a nut on it, on the opposite side. And we're going to do the same thing with our other hole. And that completes our base plate installation. Now before you put your fascia back on, I highly recommend that you do your complete flat tow setup, if you are doing like a braking system in diodes, while you still have it all apart. This is going to give you better access, and it's going to make the rest of your installation easier. If you've already got all that done, then you can just reinstall your fascia following reverse order of how we took it off. These small beams here may poke through the grill on your fascia a little bit. You may still need to drill out a little bit of hole, or cut out a little bit to make room for your electrical connector behind it. And that completes our installation of Roadmaster's Direct-Connect Base Plate on your 2019 Jeep Cherokee.

These fit like a glove on the 2019 Cherokee Trailhawk. Cannot even see the baseplate's when mounting brackets are removed. Removing the facia is a bear. Take your time and use some auto trim removal tools (search online). 620323

I have to say from the picture they don't look like all that much but They are pretty heavy duty and heavier than I had thought they would be and that is a good thing. I still need to install them so at this time that's all I can say about them. 590326

Although I haven't installed this item as yet, I want to comment on the service I received from the staff at etrailer. They were without a doubt, the most knowledgeable people I have ever dealt with, not only did they know this product, but they were well versed in its application, and how 2 different parts compared & what was unique to each one. They helped me make my decision, the part was ordered and shipped out the same day. That's the way to get customers coming back. And then on top of that the shipping was free. Wow ! Thank you etrailer, i'll be calling you again. 539793

With the included instructions, installation was easy. Now it takes me only a few minutes to totally hook up my dingy, & Im not filthy dirty, like i used to be, with the car dolly. I also find it easier to tow, since the vehicle profile isnt as wide.

Product arrived very quick. It is well made and came complete with all hardware and instructions. The only problem was that it has extra mounting plates for each side that doesn't show up on any of the videos. The instructions say if there isn't a hole on the outside of the frame on each side just to drill through from the inside to make the hole on the outside. There is barely enough room to get your hand in there let alone a drill. I lined up the lower holes on the mounting plate with the holes on the frame and marked the upper hole, drilled a pilot hole and checked the inside and adjusted accordingly then drilled the final hole. I like the fact that I can remove the tow arms so they are not shin busters. 518321

Product was perfect fit and seems very solid in it's construction and the way it mounts. I am completely satisfied with the product as i bought both the bracket kit and a wiring kit. The base plate kit should for this Jeep Liberty 2004 should have included the 6 outer bumper fascia attaching clips because these will break just about every time you take off the front bumper. Also they should supply you with a small tube of Loctite since you will always need it. So for the big price, they should throw this stuff in there but that's just my opinion. All in all great product, great folks to deal with and I will shop here again 474328

I installed this base plate on my 2016 Ford Focus Hatchback Titanium with the help of my friends auto lift. If you have a friend that has a lift it sure makes this job easier on the installer. Once installed it is barely visible while not towing. The two little tubes that stick out for towing are removed when not towing or installed for towing in about 15 seconds. Push in and turn 90 degrees to lock in for towing or reverse for not towing. Once these tubes are removed the front of the car looks normal if you werent looking for the receiver tube insert holes. 503823

The Roadmaster base plate I installed on my 2016 Ford Focus is still working perfectly as is my Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow bar. I also use the Falcon 2 Tow Bar for pulling my Jeep Unlimited 4 door.

The order to delivery time was excellent! 2 days to get to central PA. I just finished installing the RM base plate to my 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sport. We plan on towing the Jeep behind my motor home.

This base plate was as described and relatively easy to install. I watched the installation video several times as I was concerned taking the bumper cover and grill off the CR-V. I also watched to installation video for the Blue Ox base plate as it was slightly different and showed taking the off as one piece instead of two. The process was a bit tricky and I did break one clip on the drivers side. Other than snapping my 1/2" drill bit while drilling the hole, the installation was relatively easy and as portrayed in the installation video. I also purchase two metric bolts as my vehicle had neither on the bottom of the bumper cover. 445763

The parts arrived way sooner than expected (seems to be a hibit for e-trailer). Don't get me wrong that's excellent. As for the installation it went very smooth except for trying to lock the bolts in. place with the wire and red loctite took a bit of engineering and finding the right tool/screwdriver and a steel plate to keep the nut plate from spinning and got it to lock up tighten. Looks great and looks like part on the Jeep The taillight package was flawless and went in better than I expected... just enough cable between lights and to the front of the Jeep... 302066

Absolutely great product. Installed as instructed without a problem primarily because of the video provided by etrailer on the website. Could not have done it as quickly and smoothly without that video. Roadmaster baseplate is very sturdy and does NOT require cutting the steel bumper mount flanged as the blue ox version does for my Jeep. Yet I can still use a blue ox tow bar with an inexpensive adapter on the ends. Very sturdy, quality setup. 345648

Product arrived very fast. Packaged well. I installed it as per instructions . Watching a video was a great h Ed lp after reading the instructions. Everything installed as expected. Took about 3 hours. I did drop a nut a nd could not find it so had my buddy run to hardware store to buy a 1/2 " nut and lock washer. I did not have access To a lift, So running the car up on blocks 4"high helped access The underside of the cowling. It was a challenge to get my fat finger holding a nut and washer into 2 tight spots but that is what I expect doing this type of installation. 572466

Until I received the follow up e-mail from Carrieann at etrailer.com, I had completely forgotten about these Roadmaster EZ5 baseplates on my 2007 Jeep Liberty. That sums up my experience and satisfaction. Once installed, I just want it to work and not cause problems that I have to think about or solve. The RM EZ5 has been easy to use and trouble free. If I were to nit-pick, installation was beyond my capabilities, tools and patience,even with the great eTrailer video. I paid a local shop $200 to install them which included using the proper tool to cut a smooth hole in the bumper cover. With the arms removed, it's hardly noticeable on the Jeep. Attaching the arms is quick and easy and connecting the tow bar is painless compared to other systems I've used in the past. Yes, they're a tad pricey but they cost less than having the towed go "walk-about" while underway. 419984

The product was exactly what I ordered and fit as easily as etrailer's very informative video tutorial showed that it would. The product was delivered before the expected date. And I was able to easily track the shipment. The best part of the etrailer experience was the extremely helpful staff member, Katie. My card had a problem going thru and Katie was as helpful in clearing that up as she was in assisting with the actual order. I will absolutely recommend etrailer to everyone. 253106

Great experience, quick shipping, excellent video and instructional references to go along with the products. I did the installation of the product myself and without the text and instructional video's there is no way I would have been 100% successful. These are the extra value add things that make the difference when shopping with etrailer, I will be a return customer. The base plate is of high quality construction and fit perfectly on my 2016 Jeep Wrangler. I use this with the Falcon 2 tow bar for my 2016 Jeep Wrangler - 2014 Fleetwood Bounder motorhome combination. 339284

I chose the Roadmaster EZ5 base plate for my 2018 Colorado because its connection height would work better with my motorhome's hitch height. Installation was fairly straightforward but I found the supplied instructions lacking in a few areas. Although it took me far longer than the advertised 3 hours ... I believe the installation went well and should work well. This is my 5th baseplate install and this one went smoothly and the quality of the equipment seems fine. 666098

Roadmaster tow car wiring lights and fuse by-pass, came fine, in original packages. The Roadmaster EZ5 base plate came, but looked like it had gone through a war. Scratched, rubbed and bent at the electrical plug bracket tubes. Some of the hardware washers/bolts loose form the paking bag (had holes in it - shop warn?), and the box (Original Roadmaster box), was so beat up and full of holes that I am greatfullness the loose washers/bolt did not fall out. This part had obviously spent a lot of time, being kicked around some shop, before being taped back up and being sent back to the store. Wear should not affect merchantability. Shipping was very speedy. However, all that being said, it is still a great bargain. Your videos (on web) and instructions are great. 168823

After searching the site several times I was not quiet sure which towing bracket to order for my 2015 Jeep, so I called the toll free number. Within minutes, the knowledgeable customer service representitive had my order complete along with the towing wiring. Service was excellent and I received my order within 3 days. I have not had time to install it yet, so I hope I can write another review when the job is complete. In the meantimer the web site videos are a great help. I will be a return customer!

Product construction quality is very good, but it did not slip into place and I had to drill two holes in my stock 2010 Jeep's frame because the holes in the bracket were off by over two inches on both sides of the bracket. I called Roadmaster and they couldn't explain the holes not lining up with the stock frame holes or why it did not fit into place. Their suggestion to drive onto one end of the bracket and then pry on the other end to bend the bracket was not possible due to all the welded on bracket members. I ended up using the tire jack and a short board to apply pressure to widen the bracket the 1/8" needed to fit over my Jeeps frame. Had everything fit as advertised mounting would only take 1-2 hours with simple tools, as it was it took 5 hours with a trip into town to buy drill bits I didn't have in my motorhome's tool box. The bracket is well made and should work well, but taking on this project without a full shop available is risky and could lead you into a situation where your begging a commercial shop to mount your internet purchased bracket. 355229

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ5 in Base Plates


Installation could/should have been great but... Instructions that came with kit were great. The problem was the base plate. When I got ready to lift it into place I checked the alignment of the 2 uprights and found they were not parallel and the unit would not fit around the outside of the frame. Had to do some creative engineering and was able to bend the outside plates so they finally slipped up the outside frame but there was still a lot of friction so getting everything aligned and in place so that the holes could drilled correctly was a major hassle. 202305

From start to finish I probably had an hour thirty in this install. I tried multiple cutting tools for trimming the lower plastic panel. A good razor knife worked the best for me. After I loose fit the bar on my jeep, I took the plastic valance panel loose and let it hang on the tow bar. I was able to access the bottom bolts easier and use my screw driver to hold the inner flat nuts on the side ones easier as well. I had to clean the threads on the bottom flat plates which I wish I had seen before I started the assembly. All in all no biggie. My wiring bracket piping was bent in transit. I was able to bend them back in place and then up slightly to make it easier for me to plug in my motorhome harness. Great engineering. Simple process. I really like the way the tow bar sits under and slightly behind the front of the bumper. Clean set up. 229558

Quality products, GREAT INSTRUCTIONS! The video on YouTube helped very much when installing the Road Master base plate on our 2013 Honda CR-V. Tips: The front fog lights can be disconnected much easier after the front bumber fascia is released and tilted forward... same when reinstalling. Also, the bottom clips on the front grill release very easy with the help of a small, curved push tool... I used a curved needle nose plier. Simply apply gentle pressure from the bottom of the opening, right below the clips, into the notches provided for this effort. 177426

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ5 in Base Plates


I did this installation for my mother- and father-in-law. The base plate is VERY heavy duty. It is welded very well and painted adequately. Being shipped in a cardboard box with little packaging, it arrived with paint worn off the little electrical connector mount tubes and other places. The fit was good except for that the top portions of the mounting plates (each end where the base plate is bolted to the car frame), that are bent horizontal for the top-most bolts, are not bent completely to a 90-degree angle--I had to wail on them with a mini-sledge to bend them over enough to be able to get the top bolts into the weld nuts on the car frame. Also, the instructions are vague or lacking in a number of ways. The instructions called out fasteners as "Phillips screw," "10mm (head) bolt" and "plastic fastener." Since I needed to gather tools to take with me for the 12.5 mile trip to my in-laws' place, I had to guess what the "plastic fasteners" were. I found out that the "plastic fasteners" were push rivets-- they are easiest to remove using two straight-blade screwdrivers. And step 7 of the instructions sets up a person to ruin some very expensive parts. Step 7 says to pull hard and straight out to release the grill from the two yellow clips near the headlights (which was OK) and the four yellow clips along the bottom of the grill (which was not OK). Those four yellow clips at the bottom of the grill each have four little retainer legs that clip into all four edges of the holes into which they clip. Instructions for other manufacturers products explain how to carefully unfasten those clips so as not to break anything. But the Roadmaster instructions say to just pull real hard. I found that those four lower clips don't have to be released (the grill does not need to be removed from the fascia) in order to release the two yellow clips shown in Figure M of the instructions--the installer need only pull back on each end of the grill, while it is still fastened to the the fascia by the four lower yellow clips, to be able to insert a flat-blade screwdriver between parts and release those yellow clips--the whole fascia and grill lifts off the vehicle at that point. In between the instructions for pulling the grill off and releasing the two yellow clips in Figure M is an instruction saying to "pull out on corner of the fascia to remove it from the locking strip as indicated by the yellow lines in Figure L..." What is not said in the instructions is that below those yellow lines shown in Figure L are seams between the ends of the fascia and the front fenders. Those seams contain snap-and-hook features molded into the plastic parts which, if just yanked apart, will break (I know this because I broke them on one side). The snap-and-hook features can be released by carefully pulling the fascia away from the fender, to expose the features, and then using a straight blade screwdriver to push each of the three hooks out of their mating snaps--nothing gets broken (I know this because I did it successfully). Other then those things, the installation was pretty straight-forward. I don't know how well the product works because I only did the installation yesterday and my in-laws won't try using it until next week. 229996

Review from a similar Roadmaster EZ5 in Base Plates


First I'd like to provide a few comments on e-trailer. I'm a return customer, and will continue to be. The price was right, the delivery was really fast, and the kit arrived with all the parts, and in pristine condition. The big, heavy, part of this kit was well-packed, and even the little metal prongs on the front arrived undamaged. I took the time to watch the e-trailer installation video but it appears that the kit they used in the demo had some minor configuration differences from that delivered. That wasn't really an issue, since the directions in the kit were consistent with the configuration of my kit. But now, about the kit. I installed a previous version Roadmaster base plate kit on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport. It took me about an hour. This "new, improved" version... about six hours, spread over two days. Some was my fault, some bad directions, and some just bad luck, but the design of the kit was not user-installation-friendly, or an improvement of any kind over the older design. First, the new kit has both brackets connected by a large, beefy, bar. Great, except trying to get everything to line up is now much harder since the flanges on the kit are barrrrely wide enough to slip over the frame extensions on the Jeep. If you're off even a hair, they bind and you can't line up the bolt holes. And, with the brackets all in one piece, BOTH sides have to be lined up simultaneously. Lining up the bolt holes by tapping alternate sides with a hammer (my solution) works, but it sure is tedious. Oh, and there is a metal tab on the back side of the bar, behind the wiring prongs (not sure why it's there, maybe it serves a purpose on some other vehicle installation?). This tab is located in an EXTREMELY inconvenient location as, in addition to the problems lining up the bolt holes in the tight-fitting flanges on the frame extensions, you have to slide this tab through a little slot that you cut in the air dam. I found it easiest to NOT attach ANY of the air dam fasteners until I had at least one bolt on each side started. I just hung the air dam on this tab, jacked the whole thing into place, fiddled and hammered until I got a couple bolt holes lined up, and THEN fastened the air dam back in place. So far, the installation was just irritating and tedious, but no worse than some other auto repair work one might undertake. Now comes the "bad directions" part. Roadmaster includes some nuts with little wires tacked on so you can hold the nut in place on the blind side of the frame while you run the bolts in to snug them up. I found it useful to run those bolts through the nuts BEFORE doing anything to clear out the paint on the nut threads so they'll start a little easier. The Roadmaster directions supplied with the kit are VERY SPECIFIC (Step 5), stating that the LOWER nut should be put in place first, and then the UPPER. Since the access is through an opening in the UNDERSIDE of the frame, putting the lower bolt in first blocks access to the upper bolt. I followed the instructions on the first side and that is EXACTLY what happened, causing a significant problem. Since my access to the upper bolt was blocked by the installed lower one, I had to twist and fiddle the upper nut into place. When I started to tighten, the little holder wire bent around the lower bolt, and then broke, before nut had not yet snugged down. If you should find yourself in this awkward position, the quickest and simplest solution is to remove the plastic cover from above the frame - right in front of the grill, where a winch would normally mount - and go in from the top with a wrench to grab that spinning nut. When I installed the bolts on the other side, I did the upper one first, and then the lower, and had no such problems. Once you get them snugged down, they'll pretty much hold themselves so you can torque to the proper spec, and you're done. All in all, this install was MANY times more difficult than the original Roadmaster TWO-PIECE base plate kit for the Jeep Wrangler. Additionally, I don't particularly like the new design anyway, beyond the more difficult install. The huge bar that connects the two brackets (that are independent on the older design) sticks down lower, and reduces clearance in the front a bit. The "EZ twist locks" on the brackets themselves ARE easy to install, though because of clearance with the bar in the kit I have, have to be installed upside down compared with the etrailer video demo. While easy to install, the new hitch point brackets offer no obvious positive visual cue that one can quickly look at when you're hitching up to confirm that they're locked. I guess I'll get used to that, but I don't like it. Though I suppose Roadmaster has done the design work, the new "twist lock" brackets also don't look nearly as durable as the old ones, which simply used a hitch pin to secure the bracket to the piece attached to the frame extension. A MUCH harder install, and a less obviously robust attachment system than the previous design leaves me wondering where the improvement is in the new design. I already owned a Roadmaster tow bar (and like it), so I didn't have much choice. I've towed my new 2016 Jeep with the new bracket, and got back with the Jeep still securely attached to the tow vehicle, so it DOES work. 259161

Roadmaster EZ-5 base plate install on 2012 Chevy Sonic. My wife and I completed the install in about 5 hours. The Roadmaster directions are good but skip from step 5 to step 7. There should be a step 6 that describes how to pull the bumper cover away from the fender without ruining the slots on the bumper cover that match tabs on the lower part of the fender. We went to the etrailer install video to see how they removed the bumper cover. We did just what the video showed and ended up tearing the slots so now the bumper cover sticks out a little at the front of the fender. The fit of the EZ-5 base plate was very good. Cutting the lower grill for the tow bar adapters was fairly easy and doesn't look too bad. The kit was missing a couple of the 1/2" washers, otherwise a complete kit. We are happy with our install and saved hundreds of dollars doing the work ourselves. 237199

Shipped quickly and arrived in pristine condition. The plate installation was pretty straightforward with all holes lining up perfectly. What I like most is the ease and convenience of adding/removing the arms. We have approx. 17k miles towing a Wrangler Unlimited behind a class A rv and have not had a single issue. I am extremely pleased with this purchase. 572737

The product was what I expected and the instructions both written and on-line are easy to follow. My only beef is the way it was packaged, one foam fitting pad on each end, the tow bar pins were loose and caused considerable dings and scratches on the base plate during shipping but some black spray paint made quick work of that. My suggestion would be to ship the item with more foam fit pads and wrap and secure the tow bar pins with zip ties or something. 418112

Hi, I purchased a Roadmaster 524438-5 EZ 5 base plate from you. The installation was straight forward except there was a nut welded onto the inside of the driver side frame rail. I couldn't chisel it off so I had to expand the lower and upper bolt holes to accommodate the slightly off kilter angle of the bracket. Hopefully the pictures I provided will show the situation. The end product is very nice looking. Much better than the previous bracket on my '05 PT Cruiser. 409933
