Easy-Pull Ring Handle Is Easy to Grip and Pull

Easy Pull

Standard 4-way flat plugs have a small surface area to grip when you are pulling them apart, forcing you to wriggle the plugs back and forth to loosen them. Some users even pull on the wires. This can lead to broken terminals or ripped wiring. With the Easy-Pull harness, the plug has a large grip ring designed to make disconnecting a snap. Simply slide your finger into the ring and pull the plug away from the opposite plug to disconnect.


Easy Pull Rings

The Easy-Pull is also available as a vehicle-end 4-way flat plug. Combine the Easy-Pull trailer-end plug and vehicle-end plug for the easiest possible disconnection. With ring handles on both connectors, disconnecting is as simple as gripping the rings and pulling straight apart. No wriggling, no broken terminals, and no damaged wires.

Love this connector! I have rheumatoid arthritis so my hands aren't as strong as I'd like and I have trouble with regular 4-flat connectors. I can get a good grip through the pull loop on this and get the leverage I need to take connect and disconnect.



by:

Perfect for my utility trailers with a 4 pole plug.



by:

The parking lights did not work after installation. Tested with multimeter found a short in the brown wire. A cheap product would not recommend.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you about this. Thanks for letting us know!



by:

The harness connected well with the other components and the plug mates easily when hooking up the trailer with the tow vehicle.



by:

Great product, hope it last a long time, the old wires were getting a bit worn out. I really like the loop to make it easier to unplug without putting too much strain on the connector.

It did well for a while, but within a few months, the pins began bending from just the weight of the small flap on my Ram pickup that covers the 4-pin connector. I switched to using a big 7-pin to 4-pin adapter and it lasted a couple more years. This weekend, it finally gave up the ghost and one of the pins came off in the adapter. I was able to fish it out and wired up an old plug I had stashed away just in case. Im trying to decide if I should buy another, but am not too sure I want to spend so much for something that will need to be replaced as often as a $2 plug!



by:

Really like the heavier construction jacket and pull ring since it will be installed on a snowmobile trailer.



by:

Exactly what I wanted! Fast delievery!



by:

The wiring was just what I needed and the shipping was quick. I will definitely be using etrailer more in the future.



by:

Absolute hot garbage. Arrived defective and never worked. A complete waste of money. If i could give zero stars i would. For $20 for a 4 pin plug you would think they test them before shipping.

Goodness me! This 4 pin connector does have a 3 year warranty. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.



by:

The Hopkins 4 way trailer wire connector is very well designed and manufactured. It is enough of an improvement over a standard connector that I recommend replacement of an undamaged standard connector.



by:

Allows for easy insertion and removal without pulling on harness. Works great!



by:

This is a great product, solid and great quality. Three things that would help the consumer. First thing would be to add solder-less connectors. Next thing would be to have about 6-8” of exposed wire to work with when coupling. And last thing would be to furnish a dust cover for the plug end.

I couldn’t be any more happy. It has held up to many fishing trips on my boat trailer, great!



by:

So much easier to use with the large pull handle. Great for use when your Trucks harness is in a tough to reach place

Nice solid, molded grab handle. I’m switching all my 4 wire trailers over to these harness. Well made

Have not had one issue in the year since I installed them. A+. Worth the extra cost



by:

This is a great solution to a 4 wire plug for my trailer! Regular 4 wire plugs tend to fatigue over time. This rugged design is sure to last many years



by:

Not as durable as I thought it would be. I like the open hole design for easy plugging and removing, but the connection pins to the assembly themselves are subpar. I have a folding tongue and secured this onto a holder, when closing the arm, it folded the pins downward. After realizing the interference, i moved it to an upward position to allow for clearance but the damage was done. The pins bent and are now loose. Had to replace the entire harness.



by:

This connector is much more robust than standard flat pigtails. I particularly like the sheathed cable rather than the exposed flat four-wire.

Kenneth

Working perfectly. The hole pull works far better than yanking on the wire leads when disconnecting



by:

Love the finger loop. Next time I need to replace my trailer light plug this will be my choice.

Kenneth

Excellently. Love the ring!



by:

Part as described and will meet my needs



by:

Exactly what I wanted. Excellent quality. Couldn’t find it anywhere. Etrailer had it !

Reese

Still working as new.



by:

A real upgrade to typical 4 wire trailer connectors. If you are doing any trailer wiring I strongly recommend this replacement.

Well made with an integrated cover like a outdoor extension cable the ring makes it easy to hold when inserting or removing the connection from your vehicle.

It would be perfect if it came with the very fine cover that Hopkins includes with most other variations of the "ring" style connector.



by:

very heavy duty trailer pigtail cable. This is what I need to prevent kinks and breaks in the wiring harness. Nothing like hooking up trailer lights that dont work because the wiring is easily damaged.



by:

Well made unit that makes it easier to connect and remove from tow vehicle. Lead is 48" long but would be better if a little longer, maybe 60 or 72" to facilitate connection to tow vehicles with extended hitches or trailers with long tongues. Would be fantastic if the monitor/test lights were included on connector.



by:

Heavy Duty Trailer plug for my boat trailer! Fast shipping!
Thanks



by:

I have purchased these ones before, for our fleet of trailers. Great quality cable and easy to plug in/out of vehicle. I stock a couple of these for repairs.

  • Recommended Parts and Wiring for Adding LED Lights to Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Ramp
    Thank you for all of the helpful information! I do have a few different options for you to add LED lighting to your scooter carrier. You can definitely use the Optronics Streamline LED Trailer Tail Light # STL79RB with wiring like the Hopkins Endurance # HM38134 by just using heat shrink butt connectors # DW05744-5. Since your carrier is aluminum you will need to cut off the eyelet on the ground wire and splice it to the white wire on this harness. The Hopkins wiring harness is only 48"...

  • Troubleshooting Only Trailer Running Lights Working After Replacing 4-Way Trailer Connector
    There are a long list of possible issues that you could be experiencing with your utility trailer. First I recommend using a Test Light # PTW2993 to check for power on the wiring both at the vehicle and then after the 4-Way # HM38134. This will help you to ensure there is nothing wrong like a fuse on the vehicle and your new pigtail doesn't have an issue from the factory. You will want to continue to follow the trailer wiring down your trailer to determine where you lose power. If you have...

  • Recommended 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector with Pigtail
    I recommend using one of the Hopkins Easy-Pull 4-Way Flat harnesses. These have a connector with a loop in the middle that makes disconnecting your trailer wiring from your tow vehicle much easier than a standard 4-Way Flat connector. The wiring is also labeled which helps with the installation. This comes in a 12" version as part # HM48114 and a 48" version as part # HM38134. We also have the 12" part # HM48138 which has an integrated LED tester. I recommend using 16 Gauge Butt Connectors...

  • Wiring Replacement Trailer Connector to Trailer Wiring with Two Running Light Circuits
    It sounds like your trailer has what's referred to as a wishbone harness. A wishbone harness splits the running lamp circuit into two 'legs' so you can run one leg down the driver's side, and one down the passenger side. If you're wanting to install a replacement 4-pole trailer connector to your existing wiring, I'd recommend using the Hopkins Easy-Pull # HM38134 harness. The neat thing about this connector is it's really easy to use, so you won't try to unplug the trailer connector by...

    I have a solution for you, but you'll need to take a few things into consideration to determine whether or not this will work for you. You could use a hitch like the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs # 13703 which is designed for trailer and RV frames 22"-72" wide and has a 3500-lb towing capacity. This hitch can be mounted on the frame of your Open Range 427BHS, however I would first consult with your trailer's owners manual to determine whether or not the frame is...

    I do have a solution for you but unfortunately there are no adapters for a round 4-Way connector on your trailer to the Curt T-Connector # C56291 on your 2016 Honda Pilot. Instead what you will need to do is swap out the 4-Way round connector on your trailer for a 4-Way flat connector. I recommend cutting the connector off and splicing the Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness # HM38134 on your trailer wiring so that you get a connector on your trailer that is compatible with your vehicle....

    To choose the correct ball mount/hitch ball combo you simply need to measure the height of the top of the inside of your EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7279 when it is installed on your 2013 Subaru WRX Sedan as well as from the ground to the bottom of your trailer coupler (while it is level!).

  • Option for Connecting Magnetic Tow Lights with 4-Way Round to 4-Way Flat
    Since there's only one type of adapter that would work for your situation and it's probably not totally ideal it's most likely your best option to replace the 4-way round of the light kit with a 4-way flat like with the part # HM38134. The only adapter option is something like the # RM-98164-7 which is longer than you'd need and probably more money that you'd want to spend. Using the # HM38134 to replace the 4-way round will be the easiest and best option. The 4-way round connector is...

  • What Size Wire Gauge Do 4 Pole Connectors Use
    The Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Connector # HM38134 you referenced has 18 gauge wires for the brown (taillight), green (right turn and brake), and yellow (left turn and brake) wires. The white (ground) is a 16 gauge wire. Typically 18 or 16 gauge wire is sufficient to run trailer lights, especially when you use LEDs since they draw much less power than incandescent bulbs.

  • Do You Have a 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector Which Has 5 Wires For Connecting to Trailer Wiring?
    The only way we carry 4 flat trailer connectors which have 5 wires is on an entire trailer harness like the 20' # A20WB. This has the single yellow, green, and white wires with 2 brown wires. You can simply cut off the unneeded wiring and wire to your trailer wiring. You can still use a regular 4-Flat Connector # HM38134 and wire the 2 brown wires on your trailer to the single brown wire on the harness.

Since your right turn signal is being obscured you could very possibly use the Thinline LED Trailer Tail Light # STL59RB with a 4-Way pigtail like part # HM38134 but I have a different recommendation for you that I believe is a bit simpler to install and will look better since that strip can only carry one turn signal function.

  • Can the Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness Be Installed On Trailer With Two Brown Wires (Wishbone)
    The Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness part # HM38134 can indeed be installed on a trailer with a wishbone wiring harness. In order to do this you would simply combine the like circuits together, therefore you would combine the two brown wires for the running light circuit as well as the two white wires for the ground circuit as well if present. The only thing you'd really need is some butt connectors, part # DW05744-10.

So what you can do is install the # C55384 behind the 7-way of your truck and then wire a 4-way part # HM38134 to the headache rack and you'd have a very easy to install wiring setup.

For that I recommend the Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness # HM38134 which has the following wiring configuration: White: ground wire Yellow: left turn/brake light Green: right turn/brake light Brown: tail lights It is worth noting that you can actually just plug a 5-Way into the 4-Way on a tow vehicle...

That's the easy part. The hard part is finding what the trailer's colors are.
