Video Transcript for CE Smith Wiring - Tools for Wiring - CE16867A Review

Reviewer: Today we're going to be taking a look at part number CE16867A. These are the CE Smith trailer wiring clips. They're designed to be a frame-mount installation. Zinc plated steel is what they're made from. With this part number you're going to get 10 clips. These are going to be corrosion resistant clips. They're going to help you secure any loose wiring on your trailer.

You can use them to supplement the clips in the wiring kit, or you can even use them to replace old and worn out clips that you may have on your trailer. It's designed to fit around edges up to 5/32 of an inch thick. The clips, again, are simply going to secure the wiring to your trailer's frame. It's going to help prevent unsafe conditions caused by loose, drooping or stray wiring. It creates an overall, just neater appearance. It really tidies up the installation of your wires.

Very fast and easy installation, all you have to do is pop the clips on to the edge of your trailer frame and then tuck the wiring in. Again, zinc plated steel, so they're going to be corrosion resistant. Ten clips, and they're going to give us a wide of 3/8 of an inch. I do want to go ahead and show you how these do work. I have a piece of angle iron here today. What I'm going to do, is I'm simply going to take the clip, and you're going to notice here on the clip that one side's going to have these little teeth that come out. That's going to be the side that pinches on to the frame of your trailer.

Just place that on there. Give it a good push. I'm trying to go ahead and install a couple of them. Sometimes they can be pretty tight, so what I like to do is just take a tool or get a mallet or a hammer or whatever, just kind of hit that on there. Go ahead and do one more. You can see if we have these all along our trailer frame, how they'll work.

I'm going to take some 16 gauge bonded wire. This is going to be the wiring that you'd find on a four-way flat connector. Instead of having it drooping along the trailer frame, you can place it inside the clips, and it's going to hold our wiring up and out of the way, keeping everything safe. That's going to do it for our review of part number CE16867A. This is the CE Smith Trailer Wiring Clips. .

Worked great running wires for a Macerator on my Travel Trailer.


Restoring a 1991 2 horse trailer. etrailer had all the exact lights made by Peterson, 35 years later.


Great coupler. I swapped out the welded 1-7/8" (ball) coupler on the boat trailer my dad gave me as it was rusted and the latch needed to be replaced, and I already had a 2" ball mount. I considered buying a new ball mount with 1-7/8" ball for $30, but this just made more sense considering the poor condition of the original coupler and the simplification of only needing a 2" ball mount (standard size when renting U-Haul trailers for hauling landscaping dirt and rocks. Removing the welded coupler wasn't too difficult with a cutoff blade and grinding blade. Drilling the 1/2" holes took as long as cutting off the welded coupler. A definite upgrade for a better looking trailer and simplification of only needing one 2" ball mount.


Found exactly what I was looking for. Shipped promptly and arrived quickly. Thanks.



Still working great. They were exactly what I needed to hold trailer wiring to the frame.


The "CE Smith Trailer Wiring Clips - Frame Mount - Zinc Plated Steel - 10 pack" are truly a well made, heavy gauge wire clip with good spring tension to hold wiring to the frame. They arrived before the expected delivery date which was a great surprise and allowing me to get to my project quicker. They came well packaged/protected and I was amazed at how heavy duty they are. I would definitely recommend this company and their products.


I wanted additional clips to secure all wires on my etrailer. These did the trick. However, they were not the same type clip that came with my etrailer so I had to bend the open the wire-side. This modification worked so am satisfied. It’s possible I ordered the wrong clips but the wires are now secure. No regrets.


Material got to me very quickly


Clips worked as described but should have been at least another inch longer.


Works great


These clips worked great for keeping my brand new wire in its righful place.



This product has held up very well, and I will definitely use them again.


I needed trailer clips for my boat trailer for the new wiring harness I installed. I called Bass Pro Shops, Cabelas, and very marine dealer along the front range of Colorado and one had them. So, I went online and found them at I highly recommend They had the trailer clips I requested on their website. After I ordered them I received 2 emails from their staff. The first verified my order and the second verified the shipping date. Great folks to work with and the pricing is the best I found on the internet. If you want quality parts, great service, an outstanding price, and fast delivery give a look. I'm back to fishing again thanks to them.

John N.


everything is working exactly as planned. Thank you for your follow-up.


These clip allowed me to install my wiring harness without needing to use staples or other device's


These trailer frame wiring mount clips work great on my kayak trailer build just tap them on with a small hammer and clip the wires in, keeps them from hanging down, my trailer frame is 3/16" thick X 4" wide steel channel, will not work on tube type frames.


These clips are not easy to find. Thanks These are the easy, neat way to clean up your light's wiring. Shipping was quick and packaging was excellent. I am very satisfied with all aspects of this transaction.

Ken P.


Light wiring on the trailer is still secure and tidy after a year. The clips are secure and work as well as day one


Item seemed smaller than the "older" ones that i had, but they worked in the application that i needed. Product came quickly.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Will come back to etrailer again.



The items seem to be working well.. thank you


installed on trailer to hold all electrical wires. They have held up fantastic and I will order more when I use my present supply up.

David S.


excellent , I have wired up four trailers used on highway and woods .They keep the wires up and will be ordering more shortley


It is difficult to find different size or device to secure trailer wiring. These clips worked fine, but are a little small if clipping on Main frame channel - 14K Doolittle tilt bed.

Etrailer Expert

Sierra K.


These clips fit around edges up to 5 thirty two inches thick with their width of 3 eighths. Item # A0250 has a width of 1 quarter inch.


I was extremely pleased with the order process from your company, the rapid shipment and follow-up.

Although there is not much you can write about regarding chassis wire clips other than they hold the wire to the chassis as advertised, my experience has been a blank stare at every "auto parts store" I visited. I guess current cars have no chassis (i.e. frame) to attach clips to. Most refer me to the plastic/nylon loop clips that need to be screwed to the attachment point, or the self-stick clamps that immediately fall off.

Thank You!!!

Bob G.


For the most part, pretty well. I have had a couple fall off due to the thickness of the travel trailer frame. Any chance of having a slightly larger size for thicker frames?

Etrailer Expert

Rachael H.


Thanks for your feedback regarding your trailer wiring clips. I have checked and this is currently the only clip style size that we carry. We do offer several other clamps and devices that can be used for securing trailer wiring to the frame. I have included a link to those products for your reference.


The CE Smith wiring clips work great. These clips keep the wires on my trailer anchored securely. A fantastic product.



The wiring clips still function as required. No issues.


Fast shipping. Item as described. Works perfect keeping wiring secured to frame of trailer.

Terry D.


No problems.Wire is still secure to trailer frame.


I recently ordered several products from Etrailer. All of them worked great, the price was fair and service/shipping was excellent. After ordering from them several times, I don't even look anywhere else.

Bob G.


Same as before!


big help in corralling the wiring. The original clips that came with the trailer were not well designed.



Works as expected. Would buy again.


I purchased a 4 light trailer light kit locally and a 4 wire trailer harness for my 5 x 8 utility trailer. I needed these harness clips that keep the wiring up against the frame of the trailer. I searched around my city with no one carrying them. I got onto this companies website and found them. I ordered and they arrived just a few days later.


Looked around for the wire clips for holding up to the trailer frame. Nothing available (boat dealer, nope, big box auto parts store still nothing,) I was in the middle of re-wiring my trailer from the pesky critters that decided to dine on the wire wrap then I remembered ETrailer where I bought my wiring harness for my SUV. Gave them a call, sure we have it so ordered it and in the mail it came. Thanks


Just what I needed to put the wiring up under my trailer and clip it to the frame.

Carroll C.


Still working great

  • Wiring Harness for 16 Foot Load Rite Boat Trailer
    It sounds as if you're needing a wiring harness to set up your lights on a typical boat trailer. Boat trailers usually use what's called a wishbone harness, like part # A20WB. A wishbone harness uses two separate leads for the running lamp circuit, one runs down the driver's side with the left turn/brake lamp circuit, the other runs down the passenger side with the right turn/brake lamp circuit. This makes for an easier installation, as you won't need to run run the wire down one side,...

  • How to Install Ground Wire To Trailer Connector on Utility Trailer
    Grounding through the ball doesn't work well, as you've found. If the current harness doesn't have a ground circuit, the wiring must be fairly old as it's pretty typical for a trailer connector to have a ground circuit. The fact that you're blowing fuses leads me to believe you might also have a short circuit in one or both your turn signal/brake lamp circuits. You'll want to replace the existing wiring harness on the trailer. This is pretty simple to do, and will only take an hour or...

  • Wire Loom Clamp/Clip Recommendations for 4-Way Wiring.
    Based on our customer reviews it looks like the Wire Frame Clip # CE16867A that you referenced has better reviews than the Wire Frame Clip # 464600. Either one should work fine, but if it were me I would go with the # CE16867A between those two. Another option is the Metal Loom Clamp # A0500. You will need to provide some self tapping screws but this is the loom clamp that our installers here at etrailer use the most. These clamps are rubber coated to protect the wires and since they screw...

  • How to Route Trailer Wiring Harness Power Wire on a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    If there is another wiring harness you can zip tie the power wire for harness # 118349 to then that would be one option. You might also be able to go through the frame interior or through the interior of the vehicle. We don't have a video for this harness but I have included a link to our help article with tips on routing the power wire. You also might be able to use frame clips such as the 10-pack # CE16867A or a series of loom clamps such as # A0250.

  • How to Add Electric Brakes to 2017 Jayco Camper with Dexter D35 Axle
    It looks like you've got a Dexter D35 axle, which will have a spindle that uses # L44649 and # L68149 bearings, however this axle does not have a brake mounting flange, which will be required to add brakes to your trailer. You will need to have this welded on by a certified welder with the appropriate jig to make sure that the flange is mounted square and concentric; I recommend using the Brake Mounting Flange for 2-3/8" Round Axle # 4-35 for this and you will need 2 of these for a single...

  • How to Secure the Tow Ready Wiring Harness to the Underside of a 2001 Lexus RX 300
    The 4-Flat Universal Mounting Bracket # 118149 that you referenced would be an excellent bracket to use to secure the 4-way of the Tow Ready Wiring harness part # 118245 to your 2001 Lexus RX300. What I would recommend you use to secure the wires would be zip ties. You would just want to zip tie the wire harness to the underside of your vehicle avoiding moving parts that could pinch the wire and exhaust components that could melt it.

  • Parts Needed To Rewire Trailer Using 5-Way for Reverse Circuit
    I have just what you need to rewire a trailer using lights with a built-in reverse function. For this, I recommend a standard 5-way trailer connector which will provide circuits for stop, turn, tail, and reverse. The 5-Way Trailer Wiring Harness part # A40W5B is what I recommend for this as it has enough wire to completely redo the trailer lights with all new wires. I also recommend the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connectors part # DW05744-10 and CE Smith Trailer Wiring Clips part # CE16867A...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for 20' Deckover Trailer
    The 35 Ft 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness part # A35W42B will be a great option to re-wire the trailer with or if you are just starting out. It measures 35' so you will have more than enough wire to work with. It also has a 4-way connector which is most standard. I also recommend the CE Smith Trailer Wiring Clips part # CE16867A for securing the wires.

  • Recommended Wire Clamps To Keep Interior LED Wiring In Boat Trailer Secure
    I recommend the CE Smith Trailer Wiring Clips - Frame Mount - Zinc Plated Steel - Qty 10 # CE16867A which will clip to any supports inside of your boat trailer and keep the wiring for your LED lights nice and clean. If there is spots you are needing a holder but there is no area for the clip to attach I recommend using some silicone to hold the wires in place. I included a video of the # CE16867A for you to take a look at.

  • Availability of Wiring Clips to Attach to I-Beam on EZ Loader Boat Trailer
    The CE Smith Trailer Wiring Clips # CE16867A referenced in your question will fit around edges that are up to 5/32 inches thick. I am not sure how thick the I-beam is on your EZ Loader Boat Trailer but we do have the slightly larger # 464600 Clip that will work with a frame thickness of up to 5/16 of an inch. I recommend simply measuring the thickness on the beam to see if one of these options will work. If the I-beam is too thick for either of these options then your best bet will be...

  • Max Wire Gauge For Use with CE Smith Trailer Wiring Clips # CE16867A
    Due to the flexibility of the wiring clamps part # CE16867A it's hard to say exactly what the max would be as you could bend the clips as needed. Typically the heaviest gauge wire used with them is 10 gauge.

  • Replacing Trailer Wiring on a 2000 Jayco 17 Hybrid
    It sounds like the best solution for you is to bypass the existing trailer wiring since you cannot locate the wiring that leads to the tail lights. You can use wiring # 16-4B-1. It is sold in increments of 1 foot. So if you needed 20 feet you would enter 20 in the quantity box. Or you could replace the connector as well. If you have a 4-Way you could use # A35W42B which has 2 running light wires, one for each side of the trailer. If you do not have a 4-Way you could tell me the connector...

  • Is a Longer Version of Wesbar 002402 Trailer Wiring Harness Available
    Would a 20 foot harness work for you? If so, Wesbar offers a 20 foot version as part # 002220. This is not a wishbone style harness. You'll need to run the harness down one side to the taillight and then daisy chain over to the opposing taillight. A wishbone style is also available as part # W002230. A wishbone style harness splits the running lamp circuit into two legs so you and run the left turn/brake lamp circuit and one running lamp circuit down the driver's side and the right turn/brake...

  • Can a Trailer with Hydraulic Brakes Have Electric Brakes Installed
    It's actually not too difficult to swap out your hydraulic brakes with electric brakes. The main thing will be that you will remove the hubs of your trailer so that you can unbolt the assemblies and then reinstall electric ones. Beyond that you would then wire the assemblies up to the brake output circuit on your trailer wiring. You will want to measure your assemblies like in the photo I attached so that you can pick out the correct replacement to fit your hub. You will need to run wiring...
