I twisted this connector into the stock location and the locking tab that keeps it from twisting back out broke off. I locked it into place with a screw so it won’t twist out. Disappointed that it broke so easily .

2013 GMC Sierra

Broke my trailer electrical socket on my GMC pickup, I’m 1,500 miles from home waiting for the snow to start melting to go home. The local GM dealer wanted over $70.00 for replacement part. Found this one at for $16.95. I had it sent priority mail as mail has been slow here in AZ , received in six day and took less than five minutes to install. Hate to leave AZ , but home in SD is calling. We will be be back next winter. Thanks to etrailer for saveing me money I’ll need for gas home.


Fast shipping, superior product, I would definitely buy again!


Very easy...Installed in about 10 seconds. Product did not completely cover the holes through the bumper that existed from the factory harness insert. So you can see light a little bit of light around the product.


Took five minutes to install. Works gr eat.



Works great. Was a snap to install


Worked out great just want I needed.
I called was very helpful and understood what I was looking for


This connector arrived fast and was very easy to install. Took about two minutes to put in. It seems to be of very good quality.


This is a direct replacement for the original GM plug and fits and works exactly the same. I had another, name brand, plug that didn't lock in and always twisted itself on the road. NOT this one, very happy with it.


Looks to be good quality. Easy to install.

the old connector by depressing the keeper, turning it counter clock wise about a quarter turn, slide it out, depress the keeper on the wiring harness connector and unpluging the unit. Install the new connector by pluging in the wiring harness connector, sliding the unit through the bumper hole and turning it about a quarter turn clock wise to lock it in place. It took less time than writing this.



After a year, I still believe this product is well made of high quallity products. It is operating well as I expected it would. Thank you for building and selling this product.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado

Perfect fit for my 2008 Silverado. Identical to the adapter used in my wife's 2007 Suburban, except hers says "GM" and mine says "Pollack." This is all assuming it works, I haven't hooked a trailer up to it yet.


Best parts trailers and fast shipping.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Old electric plug in on my 2007 Chevy 2500 was worn out. Cord from RV would not stay plugged in. Went on line on E-Trailer, ordered a new part for GM vehicles, when it arrived, it took me about five minutes or lees to remove the plug all I needed was a small regular blade screwdriver. New part woks fine. This is the 2nd or 3rd time I have ordered from E-Trailer. I have always been satisfied. Thank you Ken Hill

Kenneth H.


Still working great


Had it for 1 year now it stills works great. Easy install


Fit no issues tight and quality. Spot on. 2011 gmc 2500hd fit right in the factory light plug in. Those that don’t have the 7 way connector already in it this adapts.


Worked exactly as described



Working great! Just as good as any OEM equipment as far as I can tell!


Exact replacement for OEM!


Works perfect just like GM shipping



This looks like my GMC 2006 connector. What is the year of your truck. The spec says it is for 2007 and up.



I have a 07 Chevy Avalanche


Replaces plug with broken cover tab. Old plug matches photo. Correct model year replacement not exact duplicate but fits cutout and wire harness. Average price. Very fair shipping fee.



Looks good, fits good, works fine.


After 18 years, my original trailer plug connector was showing signs of corrosion. When I bought a travel trailer with electric brakes, I knew I could no longer trust my old connector. I purchased this replacement because it is identical to the OEM connector which I knew was excellent quality, not a cheap knock-off. It was simple to install and the wire connector plugged right in. I've been using it extensively for a year now and it's been working flawlessly. I'm glad I purchased this quality connector that I can trust.


Perfect fit no modifications



Still functioning as it is suppose to.


After spending a little time online figuring out how this connector attaches to the factory hitch (push the tab, twist about 1/4 turn, pull out far enough to reach wiring harness connector), I ordered one from etrailer. When I got it, it took me all of 5 minutes to remove the broken connector and install the new one. Upon examining the OEM connector, which says "GM" on the lid's outside, it says "Pollak" on the inside, so the OEM part was built by this aftermarket company. No wonder it fit so well! BTW, the original broke because of cockpit error, not because of manufacturing defect.

2012 Chevrolet Silverado

Trailer parts arrived quickly, were well packaged & fit exactly. will be my first call for additional trailering needs.



works well, no problems, fast delivery

2012 Chevrolet Silverado

Looks like OEM and took all of a minute or two to install. The video was very helpful to show how to remove plate on back of rear bumper. The wiring harness on my 2012 Silverado wasn place so it was only a matter of removing plate and plugging in. A seven point adapter then plugs into this and the trailer plug just pushes onto the adapter. I tried both a seven point adapter that I kept from my 2005 Silverado and also a seven point adapter that my brother has on a 2011 Honda Pilot and they are all universal and worked just fine.. Very user friendly.The tow hitch took about 45 minutes to also install with no help (though a second person could make it a 30 minute ordeal tops). Very pleased and the shipping was ahead of original date with just normal ground freight..


This little marvel was a piece o' cake to install. Less than 10 minutes from taking it out of the box to installing in the bumper of my Chevy and wiping my hands on my pants. If my nosy and talkative neighbor wouldn't have been staring over my shoulder, it would have been installed in under 5 minutes.

Mike B.


Working fine.

Mike B.


No issues to report, the unit is working fine.

2007 GMC Sierra Classic

Exact fit and works great. I couldn't give it a 5 because it rotates slightly in the mount which doesn't seem to affect it's function, but the old factory part that it replaced didn't do that.

Chuck K.


Have had no problems with it.

  • Replacement 7-Way Recommendation for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
    The Twist-in, 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector # PK11916 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 so it would work well as a replacement. It will need to be mounted to the twist in 7-way port at the rear of your truck and then the connector for the 7-way behind the bumper will need to get plugged into it. I attached an install video that shows this as well.

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector for 2003 GMC Yukon XL with Factory Tow Package
    The # PK11916 you mention is a direct replacement for the OEM 7-way on the 2003 Yukon XL. The connector will only work on vehicles equipped with the factory tow package (like yours), and would twist into the bumper opening as shown in the photo I edited for you. Once twisted into place, the existing harness will plug into the back of the # PK11916 plug.

  • Replacement 7-way Trailer Connector on 2007 GMC Sierra
    The direct replacement 7-way trailer connector on your 2007 GMC Sierra with the new body style is the Pollak # PK11916. We do not offer a wiring harness so if the damage is behind the connector itself then you will need to check with a mechanic or local dealer. I suggest inspecting and testing the wiring before purchasing anything.

    It is a bit easier to detach the socket from the 7-way if you remove the assembly from the bracket first. Twist the assembly to the right, and pull toward you. Once the 7-way is free of the bracket, you will see a clip on the top of the connector. Simply depress the clip, and pull the damaged socket apart from the connector. Push the replacement onto the connector until the clip clicks into place, and replace into the bracket. I have a video that will also show how this is done. The video...

  • Are Their Relays In the Power Distribution Box of 2008 Chevy Silverado for Trailer Wiring Circuits
    By power distribution box I am assuming you are referring to the fuse/relay box that is under the hood of your 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. If so, yes there are terminals or fuses in that box that have all of the taillight circuits of both the vehicle and the trailer wiring. There is also a relay for the brake controller as well.

    If you look at the back of the 7-Way trailer connector the ground wire is located in the 5 o'clock position. You can follow that wire to see where it terminates. I also recommend making sure the 7-Way connector is clean and free of corrosion inside, where the wires attach, and outside on the pins. Corrosion can cause a poor connection and be the root of the problems you have. You can also check the tow package fuses but if the connector slowly stopped working one function at a time it...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Taillight Not Functioning with 2003 Chevy Silverado
    Have you had the chance to try a different trailer? It sounds like the trailer wiring is drawing too much amperage which is causing some of the circuits to not function. Typically the easiest way to fix this is to switch to LED trailer taillights since they draw a fraction of the amperage. I attached a link to a page that has all of the LED trailer taillights we offer as well.

Any of these could be causing your problem, or possibly none of them. You'll need to do a systematic troubleshoot of the trailer braking system, as outlined in the help article I've linked to.
