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.

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

  • 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. If you have no choice but to use...

  • 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 Bolts Too Big When Installing Trailer Hitch on 1998 Jeep Cherokee
    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. The best option is to use lubricant and then very thoroughly scrub the weld nuts with Nylon Tube Brush # 814092. This can take...

This particular hitch does include six M12x1.75x45 CL10.9 bolts for installation, so it appears that you received the correct size bolts. The issue you are experiencing is actually not terribly uncommon. The frame underneath your vehicle is constantly exposed to dirt and grind and this debris...

  • Trouble Installing Bolts for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Chevy Equinox
    The weld nuts on your 2013 Chevy Equinox use M12x1.75x45 size bolts like what your Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76028 came with. I checked and the similar Curt # 13591 and etrailer.com # E98865 trailer hitches use M12x1.75x40 size bolts which means they are slightly shorter but not so much that it would affect anything. If you didn't already use some lubricant when you cleaned the weld nuts try spraying some WD40 in there and then letting it soak for a bit before cleaning...

    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75235 is a confirmed fit for your 2006 Toyota RAV4. It utilizes bolt M12x1.25x40 so yes, that tap is correct. However, before you re-rap your threads I recommend using Nylon Tube Brush - 1/2" # 814092 and penetrating oil lubricant. I've attached an article to assist further with cleaning weld nuts.

  • 2008 Honda Pilot Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation
    For your 2008 Honda Pilot I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98851 because of its simple installation and superior finish. What sets this hitch apart is the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a traditional glossy finish. One thing you'll be glad you picked up is a nylon tube brush # 814092. There's plenty of gunk and road debris that can build up inside your weld nuts over the years, so you'll want to make sure you spray a good amount of lubricant...

  • How to install the Etrailer Class III hitch part # e98849 on a 2011 GMC Sierra
    The bolt closest to the front of the vehicle in the photo you sent, once it's removed the hole does not get used with the Etrailer hitch Item # e98849. The hitch will actually use the two rear most holes on each frame rail and the two holes in the bottom of the bumper. The reason one bolt is facing up is because the hole closest to the rear of the vehicle is a pre-existing weld nut that the bolt actually threads into. The bolt facing down will use a spacer block to keep the head of...

  • 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 and Curt hitches have the same style and same rated capacities. The only edge one way or the other is the integrated trailer wiring bracket on the Draw-Tite # 75888 or the fact the Curt # C13163 is made in the USA. If you will be using a 4-way trailer hitch connection, then I recommend going with the Curt hitch as you won't need that mount. Both come with bolts for installation.

Raise hitch into position and secure with the provided M14 bolts and 9/16" conical washers. NOTE: Weldnut cleaning may be required prior to installation.

  • Replacement Hardware for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on 2012 Honda Odyssey
    In regards to replacement hardware for Draw-Tite hitch # 75270 it is available with part # RHK; you only need to enter "75270" in the box under "Hitch Item Number" and then select "Draw-Tite" from the drop down box next to "Manufacturer." 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.

You may want to take a fastener to a local hardware store and compare the threads and size to make sure you have the right size. There may be corrosion you can't see on the threads.

If so then the method I recommend to clean the weld nuts is with a wire brush part # 814092 and spray lube.

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.
