Video Transcript for Spectro Wiring - Wiring Adapters - 9653P Review

Today we're going to review part number 9653, this is the Spectro 4-Way Trailer Connector Car and Trailer End Loop. This wire will extend your wiring about 12 inches, trying to give you an idea here. Put a ruler on it. You can see it gives you about an extra 12 inches in length. It does have on this end here, this is just like your vehicle end connector would be and this would be just like your trailer end connector, so what you could do is on your trailer you could take your trailer end, plug it into this vehicle end connector, and then that would extend your trailer end connector out about 12 inches. That should do it for the review on part number 9653P, this is the Spectro 4-Way Trailer Connector Car and Trailer End Loop.

12" Car and Trailer End Loop - 9653P

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (93 Customer Reviews)


The website was the first indicator this would be easy. Logically laid out, suggestions for complimentary hardware, good photos and demo video's to make selection easy.
The ordering was easy, I received timely updates, who actually worked on my order and again, timely updates.

Order arrived quickly and is exactly what I needed.

No drama, just received my order promptly. What more could I ask for?

Wow, thank you for the review, thats awesome! When you say what more could you ask for...I know its rhetorical but in a perfect world, we would send someone to help install the parts. But a mechanic showing up with the box...helpful or startling? haha


E-trailer: they've got what I need at a reasonable price. This is what e-commerce should be!


I received the product after just a few days. I had many technical questions that were answered by a competent service person. The product arrived in great shape and I had reviewed their installation video so installation went very quickly and easy. My 2011 Chevrolet Silverado is equipped with a 7 pole connection so I bought their adapter to convert to flat 4 pole connection. That an the CR-017 led worked very with first try. I also bought the trailer hitch lock at the same time. All products are very easy to use.


The product is fine, well made easy to use and functional. Only complaint is that this extension cable is necessary to make a light kit work with one of the hitch mounted cargo carriers that it is advertised to work with. Other than that frustration, this extension did the trick, allowing me to now use my light kit.

Richard S.


One year later and the product is working fine. The length of the wiring harness continu s to be the only negative. I have had to order a second extension to allow the lighting kit to fit to a different vehicle... But overall, I am extremely satisfied with the his product, and with my experiences with e-trailer.


I'll cut these loops in half and then solder and heat shrink them to the 4 wire cable. I'm making 2 harnesses, thus the reason I ordered 2 loups.



no problems


Purchased the 12" extender for my trailer lights after I purchased a different vehicle and needed more length on the wires to accommodate the new plug. Ordered the extender and received it within a week. Worked exactly like advertised on the site. Everything plugged in and worked perfectly.


Just the little extension needed when the factory trailer wiring harness plug wants to pull out of the socket when making sharp turns. Better to have the extension on and the lights working, because nobody wants to get stopped by the law for lights not working when leaving the boat ramp after a great day on the water.


I'am in the process of setting up my 2017 Equinox to tow behind our motorhome. I've placed 4-orders with etrailer. So far I've installed the base plate, the wiring from the rear tail lights to the front end.I also received my Tow bar and the quick release parts. my next project is to install the invisi brake system. I want to send Kudos to Cathy T for her help and her great customer service. I'am also thanking James A for his quick response to a question about the wiring harness. I'am extremely happy with the quality of everything I ordered at etrailer. Thanks


I have purchased several items from etrailer and recommend all of them and the folks at etrailer.
Items purchased by part #: 9653P; BK-70BB; 2118-605-04; 98174LED; PK12706; MCL11AKB; H20046.

Shipped well packaged. All items are accurately described and are fully functional. etrailer videos are a big help and their staff is knowledgeable!


Ordered Dodge trailer hitch cover. Was extremely pleased with the website and especially the video that I could watch before ordering. Video explained installation and any additional parts I might want to order. Very happy with product.


This 12" extension was just what I needed to connect a light up brake light hitch cover for my Ram truck. I bought one for my son's Chevy Colorado also.


Love it ! Perfect to use, when hooking up "trailer lights" on cargo carrier to your SUV !
Easy to use & hook up ! Highly recommended !


Not much to be said other than it looks like a quality piece. I havent used it yet, ordered as a precaution for use with my hoppy trailer wiring kit incase the harness was to short.


etrailer suggested I also buy this extension for my light kit and I'm pleased they did because the light kit I bought would not have reached the outlet on the car if I did not have this extension.


I joined 2 of these together to lengthen the wiring harness to connect the trailer to the car with a hitch extension that I used.


Just what was needed to extend the connection for my trailer hitch light. Was able to hide almost all the lead from sight. It allowed me to easily splice two wires together so the light comes on for brakes, flashers and both turn signals.


This end loop allows me to keep the connections on the car and trailer short and out of the way when not in use. I can plug the ends together and fold it for storage when not in use. Works great!


Exactly like the original. Good quality. Shipped and received quickly. Easy installation.
Great service. Highly recommend etrailer.

I spent slightly more money on four items than I would have spent on just one part elsewhere.


Needed an extension and this satisfied the requirement



The extension still works well and very satisfied. I think that etrailer stands behind their products and they give good support should you have any questions.


Perfect to splice into trailer hitch pl ug.


Makes a great extension.



great product will buy again when needed..


The 12" Car and Trailer End Loop made my wiring 12" longer to give more length off wire to work with.


etrailer had exactly what I needed, and my order arrived earlier than I expected! I would definitely recommend them to a friend.


Everything arrived on time and intack.Easy assembly .Tail light trailer in loop was a must and tail lights a must have.


It works. The cable was too short for the hitch cover to reach, this makes it long enough now.

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier, Lighting Kit, Cargo Net and Wiring for 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
    We can help you get your 2017 Subaru Outback ready for some cargo hauling using its factory-installed 1-1/4-inch hitch. The cargo carrier you referenced, the Pro Series # 63153, only fits a larger 2-inch size hitch but we have similar carriers you can use in your 1-1/4-inch OEM hitch, such as their model # 63155. Do note though that those factory Subaru hitches do not have the same weight carrying capacity as the 2-inch aftermarket hitches we offer that can bolt right up to the car's...

  • Are Car and Trailer End Loops # 9653P and # 18044 Each One Piece of Wire of Two Pieces
    The Car and Trailer End Loop, # 9653P, is one l2 inch long piece, just as it appears in the picture. The Car and Trailer End Loop 4-Pole, # 18044, is also one 48 inch long piece. It comes with quick splices in case one of the 4-Way connectors needs to be clipped off to splice bare wires. You can see this harness in use at about the 2 minute, 58 second mark of the video linked below.

  • Light Kit and License Plate Bracket Recommendation for the 19x47 Curt Cargo Carrier
    For the 19x47 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18110 I recommend using the Light Kit # 20174 with 2 of the Mounting Bracket # BK70BB and the Optronics LED Trailer License Plate Light with Bracket # LPL56CB. You will need to connect the black wire from the license plate light to the brown wire of the wiring harness that comes with the light kit. You may also need an extension like part # 9653P to reach the 4-Way Flat connector on your vehicle. Please note that there isn't a light kit that is designed...

  • Recommended Auxiliary Tail Lights Which Can Be Attached To Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack
    I have a bit of an easier recommendation for you in the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201. These lights will simply double sided tape to the frame on your Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack # TH83JV. They are also much lighter and smaller than the Lights # 98174LED, Brackets # BK70BB and Extension # 9653P. You will also be able to get 2 sets of these lights which you can attach so they can be seen with the rack folded down or up.

  • Parts Needed to Extend a 4-Way Trailer Connector
    You just need an extension loop like # HM47115 which is 48 inches long. If that is too long then we have a 12 inch extension # 9653P. If you want to make these extensions permanent then I recommend using some dielectric grease between the connections, # 11755, using zip ties to hold the connections together, and then using electrical tape to wrap it all up to protect it from the elements.

  • What Light Kit Will Work with the Reese Cargo Carrier # 63153 on a 2021 Toyota Tacoma?
    For taillight kits for the 24x60 Reese Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # 63153, I recommend the Light Kit for Draw-Tite, Tow Ready, and Rola Railed Cargo Carriers # 20174. On the Reese cargo carrier # 63153, the tighter mesh floor is not large enough for the plug to pass through. Therefore run the wire leads under the platform to the lights, then up the front of the carrier and around to the back of the light. This also helps prevent the wires from getting pinched by the cargo. On vehicles...

  • Need 4-Pole Extension Wire for Cargo Carrier Light Kit # 52014
    We do offer a 4-foot extension wire equipped with 4-pole flat vehicle- and trailer-side connectors, part # 18044 from Draw-Tite. If this is longer than you need we also offer a 1-foot extension, part # 9653P, which also provides the same plug-in extension capability. No cutting or splicing is required for either extension. I recommend an application of dielectric grease on all connections when you install your light kit. We offer this (part # 11755) but it is also available locally at...

It includes an 88" long offset y-harness (46" length for the driver side portion) that will be long enough to reach the Pilot's 4-Way when using the T2 in its 2-bike configuration and you could add a simple extension loop when you are extending out the rack in its 4-bike configuration. We have these loops available in various lengths, such as the...

    The 24x60 Pro Series Cargo Carrier, part # 63153, will work great in the 2 inch trailer hitch receiver at the rear of your 2001 Nissan Xterra SE. This cargo carrier has a 2-1/2 inch shank rise so any equipment should be clear of your muffler, which means it will be safe to use on your Xterra. To mount your license plate on the cargo carrier you can use Mounting Bracket # LP10SB. We offer 2 different light kits that fit perfectly on the Pro Series carrier. You can use either the Light...

    Thanks for your purchase from etrailer! I would go with the Hopkins 4-pole loop with cover # HM47115 because it will extend your current 4-way connector 48-inches (4 feet). If that is too long, we currently offer a 12-inch extension # 9653P. If you plan on using these extensions permanently, then I would use some dielectric grease between the connections # 11755. Then use zip ties to hold connections together and electrical tape to wrap it all up to protect it from the elements. A safety...

  • Extension Cable Available for the LED Light Kit for Railed Cargo Carriers, # 98174LED
    Installation of this LED light kit wiring, part # 98174LED, may vary slightly depending on the specific cargo carrier you have and whether the wiring harness to the LED light assemblies has to be run underneath the cargo bed versus being threaded through the carrier deck. (This will depend on how large the openings are within the deck material). I have included a video link for this product that you may find helpful. We do have both 12 inch and 48 inch 4-pole connector extensions available....

  • Pro Series 63153 Cargo Carrier and Accessories for 2015 Subaru Outback
    You can certainly load the Pro Series # 63153 up a few feet, but as you said, you'll want to stay under the roof line. I'd highly recommend the # 98174LED light kit and the # 9653P 12 inch extension. Keep in mind that the # 63153 is only compatible with 2 inch receivers. Your cargo can be held in place with a cargo net or tie down straps, depending on what you're carrying. I've linked you to the straps and nets we have available.

  • Installing MaxxTow # MT70097 Magnetic Mount Tow Lights Permanently on Vehicle
    The Peterson # PE26UR Magnetic Tow Lights could be modified by doing some cutting and splicing to work as you describe. You would attach the connector of the wiring harness at the front of the vehicle and run the wiring under the vehicle. Following the frame member or an existing wiring harness works best. Run the wires to the rear of the vehicle, being sure to avoid any suspension and steering components that might move or anything hot like the exhaust system. Under the vehicle at the...

    One option is the etrailer Carrier # e98874 which is a folding 24 by 60 inch carrier. Lights can be added using # e98943-44LED. You might need to extend the 4-way trailer connecter at the rear of your Durango to use the lights. You can use # 9653P for this. We do have carriers with build in reflectors like the Curt C18151, but no folding carriers with lights already on them.

Your Thule T2 Classic Bike Rack for 4 Bikes TH9044-TH9046 measures 55" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the farthest edge of the rack so you should be able to add the 12" Extension # 9653P and be good but this all depends on where you place the lights and where exactly your 4-Way connector is on your 2018 Honda CR-V.
