Video Transcript for Fastenal 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'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.

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

After balking at the cost to have an auto-shop add a trailer to our Toyota Highlander, we found etrailer.com and decided to take a chance. The "how to" videos factored considerably in our decision to buy ... they made it look so easy! And surprise! It really -WAS- that easy. We used standard block-type ramps (the kind you can buy for $40 ) to get the SUV up off the ground high enough to get underneath to do the work. Everything came off as easy as it was showed in the videos. Other than the fact this bar is a heavy so we had our teen daughter help hold it steady while we bolted it into place (i.e., get help for when you go to lift it), it went super smooth. Thanks for saving us $280 over the cost the car dealer quoted us! P.S. - be sure to watch the linked videos so you get the right trailer lighting attachment and ball hitch for your new hitch. 510341

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

To Whom it May Concern: I highly recommend etrailer.com com. I ordered a trailer hitch and bike rack by phone. The sales agent was professional, competent, helpful and friendly. The prices of the products are fair and the delivery was timely and arrived in good condition. It is rare to have a purchase experience of the level of high quality that I experienced with etrailer.com. I am highly recommending this company to others, based on my first experience with them, and I would not hesitate to purchase from them again. 4 stars out of 4. Thank you.

This hitch was exactly what we were looking for as we did not want it to be visible. Now all you can see is the hitch cover. The hitch was easy to install thanks to the detailed instructions in the video. My SUV is three years old so there was considerable amount of rust where the bolts were to be inserted, therefore cleaning them took quite some time. Could not have done it without the tube brush. Would highly recommend this hitch. 160505

We bought this little brush upon the advice of the trailer hitch "how to" video and I'm glad we did as one of the crud-caps had fallen off our truck's body-frame and it would have been a royal P.I.T.A. to get the crud out before cleaning otherwise. It's super-cheap, so if you're doing it yourself, spend the extra couple of bucks. Bonus ... we've reused it since the install to get crud out of other things, as well. 510296

hitch arrived within 4 days regular shipping. I watched the videos and read the instruction sheet which were helpful. installation was simple and only problem was the "U" bolt that is supposed to slip around "tow loop" on car was too narrow and difficult to place plus the corresponding holes in the hitch would not match up. Hitch is installed and looks good. Will put the bikes on it tomorrow and try it out. 414898

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

While this may be fine for mild cases of crud, dirt, and rust in the weld nuts of your car, in more severe cases (as I had) this did not help. While I tried using this brush I made very little headway in cleaning out the weld nuts of my frame. It ulimately took a thread chaser kit to let me succeed in being able to thread my bolts into the frame. 142044

by:


I was trying to install a hitch and the pre-drilled bolt holes had some rust inside. Using the nylon brush and spray to loosen the rust, I was able to clean out the holes allowing me to screw in the bolts and complete my installation. The nylon brush was perfect cause it didn't do any damage to the threads like a wire brush would have. 136640

These people are HONEST and really do care about their customer service. It has been a long time since I saw a company that was as responsive to a customer issue as these folks are. I would definitely recommend them and anything I need in the future that they carry I will purchase it from them. KUDOS to your staff - excellent folks 461546



- 814092

by:


if you have a car with a few years on it, this probably won't do the trick, unless your weld nuts were covered with some kind of cap. Mine weren't so I needed to buy the correct thread tap. Make sure you get the exact matching number to the bolts. Otherwise the pipe cleaner was okay, but just not enough for my particular job. 193920

Love the ease of order the product and shipping was super fast and arrived in no time. Packaging of several items in one box is great, no need to multiple boxes. The great service may explain my some traditional retailers are failing. Will certainly consider shopping with them again and recommend to others. 438795



- 814092

by:


A standard bristle brush is a waste when you have years of rust/corrosion in the holes. Personally I should have purchased a tap or taken it somewhere for that work before installing. I spent 4x longer than I should have installing this and still ended up with a bolt that wouldn't thread in. 275924



- 814092

by:


Did not find this necessary. The holes and threads where very clean. 3 are plugged that keeps them clean and the other had the tow hook bolt in which kept the threads clean. It is not expensive but unnecessary. If you did need to clean the holes out you could probably use a tooth brush. 515291

Wow, the videos showed me exactly what I needed. Ordered on my phone in about 2 minutes. They shipped it that afternoon and it got here before it was promised. Great communication, price better than [other on-line retailer] all in time for our family vacation. Thank you very much! 524463

The hitch I bought was what it was discribed and went in in minutes took me longer to get tools out and away then to put hitch in. The delivery was on time and tracking was great great company to deal with I will defiantly order from strainer again. 269912

Turns out that the holes in my vehicle were pretty clean, but I used this with a rust removal solution anyway - made it so that I could turn the bolts by hand - which was good as I was holding the hitch in place with the other hand! 201941



- 814092

by:


I should have gotten a bigger size as the pre-set bolt holes were very full of dirt and rust and this brush wasn't quite sturdy enough to get the job done all by itself, even after spraying copious amount of WD-40 in each hole. 268204



- 814092

by:


Worked well on most of the existing threads, except the couple that were too rusted. After I used a tap on those holes, the brush did a great job of clearing the dust and shavings... Glad I get it, came in handy after too... 360562

This tool was great for preparing to install the bolts. I probably would not have thought about it without the video. I used it to quickly clean the weld nuts and I kept it in my tool box for later use. Well worth the money. 99434

Thought it was a little pricey, but it's very sturdy. It won't bend at all, and it was nice to have on hand when I was installing the trailer receiver. Fit in the threaded holes of my Honda Odyssey perfectly. 362573

Comments

We were very pleased with our purchase, but we sold that vehicle a few months ago. The new vehicle has a hitch and the cargo carrier fits it nicely. I will definitely come back to your group for any of my future purchases. The hitch we had was on a 2008 Honda CR-V. I would caution any future customers that if they use a cargo carrier like ours, that they understand that the vehicle exhaust is in line with the carrier.

  • 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...

  • You definitely want all of the hardware installed for hitch # C13272 or any hitch because how it attaches is part of how it gets its rating. It sounds like the problem you are having is a factory weld nut that is packed with grime and corrosion. Giving it a good, thorough cleaning with a wire brush and some PB Blaster will help. You will apply a good amount of the spray into the weld nut in question and let it soak for a good 15 minutes. Then go at it with a wire brush. Repeat as often...

  • When installing a trailer hitch on your 2016 Camry, you will need to drill a couple holes in the frame as you mention. We do have a video of a hitch being installed on a Camry. It is a different year but the installation is the same. All of the hitches we offer for your Camry have a similar installation. The trailer hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 36540. This is a Class ll hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. I recommend this hitch over the...

  • Trailer Hitch Bolts Will Not Fit into factory Weld Nuts in Frame
  • The weld nuts on your vehicle will likely have to be cleaned out. Over time the threads can get packed with gunk and make it seem like the bolts are too large when really they are not. Use a spray lubricant such as PB Blaster and soak the weld nuts. Let them sit for about 15 minutes and then scrub them out with a brush such as # 814092 or a battery terminal cleaner such as # DW00254. You may have to do this a few times depending on how gunked up the threads are. I have included a couple...

  • What are the Torque Specs for the Curt Trailer Hitch Part # C13105 on a 2006 Toyota Sienna
  • The torque specs for the bolts that are included with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13105 which is a fit for your 2006 Toyota Sienna can be seen on page 1 in the instruction manual which I have attached for you. In order to prevent cross threading the weld nuts that are in the frame of your Sienna I highly recommend using a nylon brush part # 814092 before threading the new bolts in. I have also attached a sample install video for you as well.

To clean out the existing holes and weldnuts on your vehicle you can use part # 814092.

  • Cleaning Out Weld Nuts to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2011 Kia Sedona
  • I would advise against using a thread tap to clean the weld nuts on your 2011 Kia Sedona. That should be a last resort because the possibility of a less than perfect tap is high. We recommend using a combination of spray lubricant, a wire brush, and elbow grease to clean corroded weld-nuts. We even have a help article and video on this subject which I have linked for you. The bolts for hitch # C13345 are indeed M12 x 1.25. For a wire brush you can use # 814092.

  • Installation of Curt Custom 5th Wheel Brackets and Tools Needed for 2014 Ram 2500
  • For your 2014 Ram 2500, you will want the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for Ram Truck - Carbide Finish # C16427-204. This kit has all the hardware needed, so you simply need 3/4 inch and 18 mm sockets or wrenches and a torque wrench like # ALL944001. You will also want 1/8", 9/16", 1/4" and 7/8" drill bits for the rails as well as a center punch and measuring tape. You will also need a tube brush like # 814092 and spray lube like # L10444 for the weld nuts.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2004 Toyota Matrix
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2004 Matrix is the Curt, part # C12221. This is a Class ll hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. Per Curt all non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing straps like part # 18050. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. I have attached a helpful article that explains how you can clean the rusty weld nuts on your vehicle. You can use something...

  • Ground Clearance on Curt C12225 vs Draw Tite 36241
  • We had the opportunity to test fit hitches on the Pontiac Grand Prix and found that the hitch with the greatest clearance was the Draw-Tite hitch, # 24660. From the bottom of the receiver to the ground was right around 9" on this hitch. The other two hitches, Draw-Tite # 36241 and Curt # C12225 both had just 7 1/2 inches of clearance from the bottom of the receiver to the ground. So, your best bet will be Draw-Tite hitch # 24660. For the installation, it will be helpful to have a nylon...

  • Is Drilling Required When Installing Trailer Hitch On 2015 Dodge Dart
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2015 Dart is the Draw-Tite, part # 24890. This is a Class l hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. When installing this hitch you do not have to drill any holes in the frame. You use existing holes as explained in the instructions. You just remove the rubber plugs from the holes and the hitch will use them for the hitch install. You may need to clean dirt or corrosion out of the holes in the frame, and can use a nylon brush like part #...

  • 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.

  • Troubleshooting Included Bolts Too Big to Install Trailer Hitch on Vehicle
  • The issue you described in your question is actually not too uncommon, especially on vehicles that have seen a few winters. I did verify that the M12 x 1.25 bolts are the correct size for installing the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11265 on your 2015 Toyota Corolla. Since the underside of your vehicle is constantly exposed to dirt, grime, moisture, salt, etc - this gunk can find its way into the open weld nuts or bolt holes on the vehicle where the included hardware for a trailer hitch is attached....

  • Will the Thule Hitching Post Pro Fit on a 2013 Honda Odyssey with 2
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Class III # C13068 will fit on your 2013 Honda Odyssey. No welding or drilling is required for installation as it is made to easily bolt on to your vehicle. You will be using the weld nuts on your vehicle for installation, and most of the time, the weld nuts can get dirt in there and make the installation process more difficult. I recommend the Nylon Tube Brush # 814092 to clean the weld nuts and make the installation process go smoothly. This Curt Hitch is compatible...

  • 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...

  • Blue Ox Base Plate Tabs Rusted in Place on a 2004 Jeep Liberty
  • To free up the rusted base plate tabs on the 2004 Jeep Liberty use a spray lubricant such as PB Blaster or WD40 and let them soak for about 15 minutes. Then, since the tabs fit in and turn to lock into place, use a long screwdriver than can fit through the holes on the tabs to rotate them. The screwdriver will give you more leverage making it easier to brake the tabs free. You may have to respray and let them soak more than once. After you free the tabs I recommend replacing them and...

  • Hitch Bolts Do Not Want to Thread Into Weld Nuts on 2008 Dodge Nitro
  • It sounds like the weld nuts need to be cleaned. We recommend cleaning the weld nuts with some spray lubricant and a tube brush # 814092 or wire brush # DW00254. The tube brush will help clear out any dirt, debris, or rust that has built up over time and is preventing you from installing your Curt hitch # 13334. I have attached a review video of the tube brush and an installation video of the hitch on a 2008 Nitro for you. If cleaning the weld nuts does not help, please feel free...
