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.

I ordered this product to help with the installation of a Curt trailer hitch that I ordered from etrailer. It shipped the same day as I ordered it! It is the perfect size to clean out the holes in the frame of my vehicle. Spray a little penetrating oil into the hole, use the brush and the threads are now clean and ready to accept the new hardware. 489981

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 ! 464096

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. 86593

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.

Brush was just what I thought it would be and handy; however, as it turned out, the car frame was not really that dirty. 62540

No problem with the brush. It handles its task well. Its a brush to clean our holes or short pipes.

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. 446736

Wasn't enough to clean the holes. Needed to buy a tap. 726055

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. 715845

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. 715660

This wiring harness is top quality components. The video instructions on the etrailer web site are excellent for explaining how to install. The written instructions that came with it are OK, but the videos are so much better. The video for this product was for a hybrid which is different than my RAV4, so i watched the video for the Curt wiring harness and it was for a model similar to mine and between the 2 I could figure it out. 715657



- 814092
by:

First I must say the instructional videos are excellent. They helped me personally throughout the installation. The Curt wiring harness was straightforward and easy. Took me about 40 minutes. The Drawtite class 3 hitch was a challenge for one person but with help from the previous buyers experience I incorporated the hydraulic car jack trick and it worked. Took just under two hours to finish. Used it yesterday and everything went perfect. Thanks for good products and videos. 714868

It's a brush...worked as designed. Recommended for deburring the frame holes during hitch install. Glad to have it during my install. Not much more to say than that. 695233



- 814092
by:

Installed on a 2016 Honda Odyssey. Was able to do myself without jacking up the rear end of the car. Tips: 1. Unless your car is really new, plan on buying a 12x1.25 thread tap to clean all of the threads. The brush did almost nothing. The difference was night and day. After running the tap, the bolts effortlessly went in effortlessly using just my fingers. My car was less than 3 years old and the threads were already pretty crappy. 2. Prop up the driver side of the hitch with boards and then bolt on the passenger side. Very easy to do solo. 694871

The receiver install video was excellent, very much appreciated the level of detail. Installing this hitch receiver was very easy with 2 people and a lift for the car (just followed the video for the 2013 MDX). The only issue I had was that the video says the flange bolts need a 19mm socket, but the bolts I received needed an 18mm socket. Otherwise everything was right on. I have used the hitch receiver with a cargo carrier to transport a mobility scooter (~800 mile round trip) and it worked very well! Installing the wiring harness was also very easy by following the video (again great detail). The extra hints for the brush (receiver video) and the circuit tester (wiring harness video) were also very helpful. All products are working very well. Thanks for making this install so easy and successful!!! 695869

Excellent products and service. Very easy website to use. I bought a trailer hitch, wiring system, and a few other things needed for the job to be done correctly. Everything fit as promised! Videos were accurate and extremely helpful. Usually things are never as advertised . . . things were even better than advertised with etrailer! I will use again and tell everyone I know! 693128

The hitch is a perfect fit on our 2018 Sienna and easy to install for someone with minimal mechanical inclinations. The instructional video laid out all the steps and left little room for error. Mainly plan on using it for a bike rack, but may get the wiring harness later so we can tow a small trailer. Thanks! 682085

For the price it was a no brainer to throw this in my order for my hitch install. 681422

This does exactly what it is supposed to do. How much can I say about a brush. You'll use it for five minutes and then you'll store it until you think of some other application years later. Or maybe you'll install a hitch on another vehicle. In any case, it's not much money to get the right brush for the job, so buy it. 678451

This will get you the spcial spacers, the washers and bolts to fit the factory weld nuts on your 2008 Honda Odyssey.

  • Cleaning Weld Nuts Prior to Installation of Hitch on 2006 Toyota RAV4

However, before you re-rap your threads I recommend using Nylon Tube Brush - 1/2" # 814092 and lubricant # L10444. I've attached an article to assist further with cleaning weld nuts.

  • Replacement Hardware for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on 2012 Honda Odyssey

And the bolts for your hitch are M12 X 1.25 so you will need a matching thread tap, which you can find with the 12 mm x 1.25 Tap and Drill Bit # PTW8662. I have also added an article for you on how to clean weld nuts which you may find useful.

A lot of times weldnuts get debris in them which makes starting the bolts pretty difficult.

  • 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. Using only 5 of the 6 bolts will reduce the hitch's capacity to an unknown number since it was tested and rated with all the hardware in place, potentially leading to damage and injury while also voiding the hitch's warranty. The issue you are experiencing where it looks as if the hole isn't large enough for the bolt is actually not too uncommon....

  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Hitch # 75528 installation allows the fascia to be reinstalled on the 2014 Buick Enclave. This hitch is barely visible and looks great on the back of the vehicle. I've attached a photo of the hitch installed on a 2014 Enclave and a video of this hitch being installed so that you can get an idea of what it entails. You will definitely need a nylon tube brush like # 814092 to clean the weld nuts on your 2014 Enclave. Dirt and road grime can build up over time in...

  • Cleaning Rusty Bolt Holes to Install Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13068 on 2002 Honda Odyssey
  • I want to start by thanking you again for your recent order. We appreciate your business. When it comes to installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C13068, on your 2002 Honda Odyssey, it is best to just clean out the bolt holes on your frame instead of using a tap. You will want to start by soaking the bolt holes on your frame with a penetrating lubricant like UltraLube, # L10444, or WD-40. Let the lubricant soak in and then use a wire brush, like part # 814092, to scrub out the...

  • Cleaning the Weld Nut Threads on a 2009 Chevy Traverse to Install a Trailer Hitch
  • Tapping the threads should be a last resort because if done improperly the threads in the weld nut on the vehicle can get damaged or altered causing the bolt not to fit. What we recommend first is cleaning out the weld nuts using a spray penetrate like WD40 or PB Blaster, letting it soak for 15 minutes, and then going at it with a wire brush, battery terminal cleaner, or nylon brush such as # 814092. This process may need to be repeated a few times. In the event that a thread tap must...

  • Removing Rusted On Bolts for Trailer Hitch Installation
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12002 for your 2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara uses weld nuts on the inside of the frame rails to attach the bolts and mount this hitch. If there are currently bolts in that location, you will need to remove them and there are a couple of routes to go about doing so. First, I recommend using the UltraLube Biobased Spray Lubricant and Penetrant # L10444 to get into the small crevices to free up the bolt from the nut as dirt and corrosion can cause a bolt...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Toyota Tacoma
  • Both the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch # 13323 and the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 75236 would work well for you. These Class III trailer hitches have a 2 inch receiver, 5,000 pound max towing weight and 500 pound max tongue weight. For installation, both hitches require the bumper brackets to be loosed or removed. I would go with the Curt trailer hitch, as it is more economically friendly than Draw-Tite. The trailer hitch will bolt into existing weld nuts on your truck's...

  • Curt Front Hitch C31063 Installation on 2000 Ford Ranger
  • Our hitch installers often find that on even fairly new trucks the weld nuts in the frame can becomes rusted enough (or filled with salt or dirt) that the hitch installation hardware does not want to thread properly. It can be an even worse problem on an older truck like your 2000 Ranger. It can absolutely seem like the hardware is too large for the threaded hole. In this case cleaning out the weld nut threads with a brush like # 814092 and some spray lubricant usually does the trick. If...

  • Cleaning Out Weld Nuts to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2006 Toyota Sienna
  • In all likelihood you will not have to tap the holes on your 2006 Toyota Sienna to get the hitch bolts to fit. Usually the issue is that the weld nuts on the vehicle will get packed with grime and corrosion and all you will have to do is clean them out. You will need some spray lubricant such as WD40 and a wire brush or battery terminal brush such as # 814092 or # DW00254. Spray the weld nuts with the WD40 and let them soak for about 15 minutes. Then go at the holes with the wire brush...

  • How to Clean Weld Nuts Inside the Frame of a 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • In order to clean out the weld nuts inside the frame of your 2015 Honda Odyssey you can use the UltraLube Biobased Spray Lubricant and Penetrant part # L10444 along with the Nylon Tube Brush part # 814092. If you were very careful you could also use an M12 thread tap but this should only be used if the bolts will still not thread in correctly after extensive cleaning as you run the risk of cross threading.
