Video Transcript for Fastenal Tools - Hitch Tools - 814092 Review

Today we're going to review part number 814092. This is the Fastenal half inch nylon tube brush. This brush is great for cleaning out well nuts on your vehicle frames when you're installing a hitch, makes that install much easier. We use it here at Etrailer. This nylon brush has a nice metal design, has a loop handle on the end that help you hold it. It does use nylon filled bristles on the brushes.

This used in cleaning and deburring any of the well nut holes. Dimension on this, overall length, to give you an idea, it's going to be 8.5 inches. Just the brush itself, the bristles is 3 inches. The diameter is half an inch on the bristles themselves. Basically, what you'll use this for is you want to start by soaking the well nut bolt holes on the frame of your vehicle with a penetrating lubricant, and then let the lubricant soak in a while. Then you take this nylon wire brush, stick it up into the holes, move it around, and basically that'll scrub out the holes and free any dirt or rust from inside those holes.

It's actually very helpful on any vehicles that have a few years on them. Newer vehicles might not be as bad, because it didn't have time to build up. On some of the older vehicles, it's good to have this clean out anything in those well nut holes. You might have to do it a few times, but it should allow the bolts . You take one of the hardware bolts. Once you get it cleaned out, try it in there, make sure it threads in a lot easier.

It does save you a lot of time, makes the bolt fit more easy. That should do it for the review on part number 814092. This is a Fastenal half inch nylon tube brush.

It's very solid, and supports our bike rack just fine. It was installed on a 2007 Toyota Sienna and I had to take it to our local auto shop because I didn't have a tap and die set to bore out the rusty pre-drilled holes. It does sit a little low, so be careful when backing up near curbs. You'll definitely scrape! Otherwise, very happy with it so far. Oh, and the shop had to adjust our exhaust a little bit because it hit the hitch receiver when we hit bumps.

Just as advertised. Very good product. Easy to install if you follow the instructions provided. It took me about 30 mins to install. You definitely need somebody to hold one side while you bolt in the other. I didn’t need to lift the car to install it. Super easy if you have the right tools.

It was very easy to install and it met all my expectations. The video on-line was very helpful in understanding the entire process before we bagan instalation. Ashley at etrailer was most helpful in making sure we got the right product for our car. Our plan is to use it exclusively to haul our bicycles around with us as we travel. We will definately look at the bike racks etrailer has to offer as well.

I was unable to find a brush like this in the local stores. I use it to clean the threads underneath the car where the bolts to the trailer hitch get installed. Essential tool especially if the car has some years and miles on it. I have used in conjunction with the proper size tap to ensure threads are clear and clean.

The whole process from ordering to getting the hitch was awesome. It arrived a lot quicker than I thought it would. I have not been able to install it just yet due to a cold snap in our area. Daytime high of 15 degrees and no garage to work in, makes it too difficult to do it. I am anxious to get it put on the Rav4 . The only minor problem we had was the carton was taped up by UPS due to the hitch breaking out of the carton on one side. The other side did start to a little bit. Would recommend them increase a little more packing material around the square mounting brackets to eliminate that problem. Otherwise, awesome !

I really recommend to buy this accessory, it really helps to prepare for the installation of the screws.

Works fine for dirt and debris, but does not work with nuts that are welded in the frame and have rusted. I would like to see you offer a tool to assist in removing the rust from a nut. I used a rotary tool with a small steel brush but it wasn't ideal, as it was too large.

I'm going to be completely honest and review this product from start to finish. Finding the "hidden hitch" online was extremely easy. Their website walks you right through finding the correct one for your vehicle and they have an enormous inventory of everything you could need for towing. I have a 06' Honda Odyssey. The videos were greatly helpful to watch before receiving the hitch so I knew EXACTLY what to do when installing the hitch. I decided to buy one and was genuinely excited to get this thing on our Honda. Their tracking service was accurate and informative, showing me where the package was with a picture of it moving across the states. Package arrived late in the evening (7:45pm) and the box it was in had been completely destroyed. Both ends of the box had to be heavily repaired with packing tape and there were holes, drag marks, etc all over this box. As for the product inside? It had plenty of scrapes, dents, dings, etc. Now this thing is solid steel so I wasn't really concerned about the cosmetic condition of the hitch. Just shows you that UPS does NOT care about your packages, when you receive them and will destroy them. You should package items like they are going into war. Used the spiral brush to clean the threaded holes on the frame of the Honda and used one of the bolts to make sure they would screw in quickly and easily.... they all did. Took 20 minutes to put the hitch on myself (I used a few small boxes to hold the hitch into place under the rear of the odyssey or there abouts until I could put in all the bolts, spacers and washers. The information on the install sheet was easy to follow and had all the vital information, like torque specs. Installing the wiring harness for the trailer was ridiculously easy. I thought it was going to be a hassle, cutting wires, dealing with electrical tape, trying to figure out where wires come and go, etc but it wasn't. I pulled off a panel and then the side panel. The wires literally just PLUG IN to a control box and the ground wire gets bolted (small bolt) to the grounding unit. Then you just run the wire along existing wires, zip tying along the way, feed the wires through to the spare jack compartment for storage. Then I had to just plug in a fuse, provided by them, into the fuse board and I was done. It took me about 1 hour to install the hidden hitch and the wiring harness and be completely tow ready....amazing. Overall quality of materials, wires, product: 10/10. Customer service, instructional videos, installation instructions: 10/10. Timeliness of purchase, shipping and installation: 10/10. Condition box/product was received in: 4/10. I would HIGHLY recommend this product and etrailer.com. It is a SOLID piece, easy to order and install to make your vehicle tow ready. This set up was the easiest thing I have EVER installed on a vehicle, very pleased overall with the end result. Here are a couple pics of the hitch installed and the trailer wiring harness ready to go.

I still have the hidden hitch. I just went to visit my friend and his parents for Xmas in Alabama two states away from my home in South Carolina. I told my buddy I was going to get back into fishing so he gave me his bass board that has been sitting in storage for 8 years. I didnt think the Honda Odyssey 06 could tow a boat... seemed definitely out of the soccer mom vehicles rep. Anyhow, it towed it fine. The ride was actually very smooth and had zero issues. Im glad I kept the hidden hitch after our move across the USA... came in handy for towing the boat. Great product, great site.... and also, the hidden hitch doesnt have any rust, damage or signs of aging... looks brand new after a little over a year. Highly recommended product.

Rather easy to install by myself with vehicle parked in driveway without a lift. Had to unhook exhaust hanger to fit the right side up but not a problem at all. Less than an hour in total for install and will be perfect for what I needed. Did have to make run to purchase 22mm socket for torque wrench. Looks good installed.

I can't believe I didn't buy this when I bought a trailer hitch for my vehicle. I watched the trailer hitch installation review a dozen times and each time the installer said to use this brush to clean out the bolt holes. But, I figured that my SUV was practically brand new and I won't need it. Well, I was partially right... I got 4 of the 6 bolts in with no problems at all, but the last 2 kept jamming up in spite of how much WD-40 and then penetrating oil I sprayed in the hole! So, I ordered this brush, got it a few days later, cleaned out the bolts holes and the bolts went in very easily! Lesson learned - follow the advice of the installer!

I used the brush along with penetrating fluid to clean the chassis nuts prior to mounting the hitch. The brush fit the nuts well.

I received the three ordered items Tuesday of this week. This was per the notification I received from etrailer. Items arrived on schedule. A friend of mine and I put the trailer hitch mechanism, including wiring, on the car earlier today. It took a bit longer than the instructions said, about and hour for the mechanical assembly onto the car and then about another hour to complete the wiring. The wiring took a bit of time as it is was not obvious where some of the panel connectors are located nor how to remove a panels we are not familiar with. After about two hours the entire assembly was completed and tested successfully. This appears to be a quality assembly. I am pleased with the outcome. Thank you.

Hitch went on well after cleaning some caulk material out of one of my car frames bolt holes. I have not used the hitch yet but plan to use with a Hollywood cargo bicycle rack. Appreciate the great video instructions. Exhaust seems to have plenty of clearance on my 2003 Pontiac vibe. I also used the recommended wire brush.

Everything was perfect. The came will packaged, just as described, and fit like a glove. The instructional videos were very easy to follow and very clear. I was never worried if I was doing things correct for a moment of the installation. I will certainly recommend you to anyone I know of who's looking for such products.

Wasn't needed for the install however, I found other useful uses for it.

Hitch arrived quickly, the box was a little banged up but the hitch was just fine. Installation was a breeze after watching the video instruction. The black and white printed instructions are pretty much useless, better to look at the color version of them in the PDF file on the web site. Top notch products and the service was quick and efficient.

  • Tap Size For Weldnuts In 2008 Toyota Sienna To Install Curt Hitch
    The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch part # C13105 for the 2008 Toyota Sienna utilizes M12 bolts. It sounds like you have already tried to use a brush like part # 814092 and Blaster Lubricant or WD-40. You can tap out the weldnuts with a M12x1.25mm tap that can be sourced at a hardware store. We do recommend that tapping the weld nuts be the last resort. Maybe try soaking the holes with the blaster then go at it with the brush. This may take several tries.

  • Recommended Tool For Cleaning Threads
    To clean threads I recommend using a nylon brush like # 814092. This will allow you to clean out any debris without causing any damage to the threads like a wire brush might cause. Sometimes there is paint or powdercoat in threads that may require you to use a thread tapper to clean them out entirely. You can pick this up at a local hardware store or create your own.

    It is actually pretty common for the bolts to seem like they are too big to fit when installing a trailer hitch such as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13084 that fits your 1998 Jeep Cherokee. The issue is especially prevalent in more well-traveled vehicles because dirt and corrosion will have taken their toll, making the bolts seem too big for installation.

  • Trailer Hitch Bolt Too Big for Weld Nut on 2018 Nissan Frontier
    I definitely recommend installing and torquing down all 6 bolts for the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75282 on your 2018 Nissan Frontier.
