I bought this socket for my 2006 Volvo Xc90 to wire in the 4-Pole harness I also purchased from etrailer. Already had a few 7 Blade to 4-Pole adapters from my previous vehicle, and wanted the option of adding a trailer brake wire for a small camper later on so that was the main reason for the purchase. It also went very well with the Hidden Hitch I had already installed, bracket mounted right up to the existing tabs on the hitch. Super quick and easy install, as all of my etrailer purchases have been. Looks great on the truck, and functions great with the 180 Degree cover. 432535

etrailer gave excellent service. Shipping was prompt. Email followup was excellent. I needed a part to hook up to a Silverado 3500 with the wires to the bed already there (taped up at the front of the bed on the driver side) and didn't want to tap into the existing plug on the bumper. The L Shaped bracket is easily detachable so that the plug can be screwed directly into the sheet metal of the truck bed once a hole is cut. However 2 things....the unit comes with nuts and bolts so get ready for a trip to Home Depot to get some sheet metal screws of some sort for most installs in the bed. Second, the holes that the screws must go in are hex shaped which is great for the bolts that come with the unit but not for sheet metal screws so be sure and get screws with a small enough head to countersink into the holes or with a big enough base so as not to sink into the hex shaped holes. 103078

I purchased this 7 blade connector to replace part 47435 (6 pole round to 7 blade (trailer)), which was allowing the whole cable assembly to droop close to the ground, and was fatiguing after four years of use. This new unit was easy to wire and install, however I wish to point out that the molded markings for the various wires (RT, LT, TM, GD, BR, etc.) are exactly backwards from the way the device is supposed to be wired. This was evident when I finished the installation and observed the turn signals were reversed, and nothing else worked (as a result of blown fuses). Once I corrected the wiring, everything works fine. Use the wiring diagram which comes with the instructions and not the molded pin markings on the device. 275789

I installed this receptacle in the side, top rail of my truck to supply power to my 5th wheel trailer. The connectors at the rear are very sturdy, I was able to tighten the connections very tight without fear of them stripping out. Looks like a factory installation! 27853

Good quality with seal on cover. Wiring installation was a little tight with the housing. It did mount perfectly with my Draw-tite hitch. 63295

Great product, shipped promptly. The video on etrailer.com made installation a breeze. Even comes with non-corroding grease for terminal connections. I got stuck as an amateur wire-installer and had to call etrailer.com for some technical advice (didnt have a purple wire or orange wire as all wiring diagrams online showed....) the tech support was super knowledgeable and got me running in no time! 186563

Very easy to install. Good quality, looks like it will hold up over time. I ran my 4 pin right next to it for a clean look. And as always great customer service. 371062

Easy to wire in. Seems that it will be pretty durable. Instructions were good and included a wiring diagram. Only improvement I can offer is that the wiring stamps (ie. LT, RT, GND, AUX, etc) were not readable once you loosened the wire clamps. It would have been much more convenient if the stamps were visible once I loosened the clamps to put the wires in. 88907

Product delivered very quickly even here in Alaska. Had the same item installed on my truck and it had a broken cover plate so needed to replace it. Also found the original was not installed very well and let water into area where wires were terminated. Fixed that problem with the better weather sealing. Thanks for great service and a good product. 303023

Controller is very nice and installed easily. All mounting hardware was as stated and went in with no hitches. Very informed salesman and great to deal with. I would recommend them or do business with them in the future. Also shipping was very quick. 64633

Great value. Toyota wanted $235 for the replacement which included an 18" wiring harness with a Weatherpack connector. I cut the Toyota harness at the failed socket and attached the wires to the new socket as shown in diagram. 89557

Product looked robust right out of the box. Took about 5 ministers to install. Works great. The service during the sale and after the sale was incredible I would recommend etrailer to anyone who has a trailer or vehicle needs. 369108

Thanks Kevin M for writing such a great review and rating!! I am surprised it took 5 ministers to install but Ill bet it went on quick. Just kidding Kevin, I knew you meant 5 minutes but the way it came out gave me a laugh. Happy towing!!

Best feature I think is the ability to service it. One clamp screw (#2 Phillips) and a flat screw driver to pry easily accessible tabs, slide the sleeve back and you have full access to all screw connections. 231441

Great product. The labeling on each connection really makes it easy to install. seems rugged enough, but I would still be careful where it is mounted so rocks/dust/water don't damage the casing or wiring. 84077

Gasketed cover. Comes with the mounting bracket. Nice latching cover at the rear to cover all wire terminations. Also includes plenty of dielectric grease. Terrific experience dealing with etrailers! 11343
