This universal, right-angle bracket is designed for mounting the Pollak 7- and 9-pole trailer connectors to your towing vehicle. Black, zinc-plated bracket mounts under rear bumper of truck or SUV. Mounting hardware included.


Easy to install, I didn't use the two self-tapping screws, the tow hitch already had a plate on it to attach the mounting bracket. It would have been nice if they would have included two small bolts with washers and nuts to attach.


Great product with easy installation



Very please and no issues


Works great if you pay attention and mount it properly the first time, lol. No issues with the product at all.


Great product and great price! No issues since installing on my 2022 Buick Enclave!


This worked ok for me on my trailer light install, but after a year the black screws that came with the kit are rusting badly. I didn't use the silver screws that came with the kit, needed longer ones, so can't say how they would hold-up......



RUST on screws is still an issue on screws. I painted them a few times with black spray Rust-Oleum....


Works as it should. when it was shipped I was put in the box with the hitch receiver and got crushed. the small screws were missing probable from the box getting destroyed. I made it work but was disappointed


Made a good location and solid mount for the wiring for my trailer harness.


None of the hardware displayed in the picture was included with the bracket. I found the needed hardware in my shop.

The hardware is definitely included. I will have our Customer Service reach out to you.


The tow package I purchased last year, fits great and installed perfectly. It works perfectly with my electronic under-dash brake controller.

The kit came with everything that I needed and instructions were easy to read I had the entire kit installed in about 40 minutes it's work Flawless for me for over a year and I tow a variety of trailers the plug is never failed due to workmanship it is still water tight.

The receiver cap spring still has excellent tension to help hold the plug into place, the only gripe I have is that I should have installed stainless mounting screwswhen I installed the kit because the mounting starting are starting to rust a little, but that's my oversight and is nothing to do with the kit and its ability to provide flawless service.

I highly recommend this product if you're like me and was looking for an oem Plug and Play setup!

5 stars!


Turned out my factory bracket did fit the wiring harness and the bracket worked out great, it fit perfectly where it was installed.


My F150 had an OEM 4 pin trailer plug and hitch.
The 118242 - 7 pin connector with wiring harness is the ticket. The hardest part of the install was dropping the spare tire. The plugs connect directly to the factory plugs and the harness length is the correct length.
The 3035-P brake controller connector harness was just as easy. Plugs right in to the OEM plug next to the ECM connector and the other end into the brake controller.
The PK12711U-26 - 7 pin bracket and hardware kit fastens directly the OEM bracket that is on the hitch. My truck had an OEM 4 pin trailer towing set up with the hitch. The OEM hitch had the bracket welded on it to attach the 7 pin mounting bracket to it.
These kits make this install very easy and professional looking.
If I have one complaint, the hardware kit to attach the 7 pin connector bracket is set up to fasten the bracket directly to the bumper with 2 - self tapping screws provided in the kit. The kit also includes 4 #12 machine screws with toothed washer nuts to attached the 7 pin connector to the bracket. This is fine if your truck hitch doesn't have an attaching bracket welded to it. The kit should included in it 6 #12 machine screws and nuts along with the 2 self tapping screws. Since my OEM hitch actually had a bracket welded to it to attach the 7 pin bracket to it, I had to use two other #12 screws and nuts to attach the 7 pin bracket to the OEM bracket on the hitch. Not a big deal, just a thought.
It took me about 2 hours, start to finish to install the 7 pin connector, trailer controller, and add the two relays in the OEM relay/fuse box under the hood.
I highly recommend these kits.


It was suggested I purchase this bracket to assist in mounting my 7-way trailer harness (item #118253) to my 2010 Honda pilot. When I tried to attach the bracket underneath and behind the bumper, I discovered it was too tall and very difficult to fit where it was required. I also found that the bracket is a 90-degree bend and will not go flush against the bumper wall. The bumper wall runs at an angle and you would need a bracket with an approx 35-degree angle to fit flush against the bumper, that's important if you want a professional clean looking mounting of the trailer harness (7- way insert) like I installed (see attached pics). So forget this bracket, Just save your money and mount onto the bumper wall, plenty thickness and you get a clean look...Maybe one day they will make the proper bracket for such an installation...


Good part, got the job done.


The product delivered was exactly as advertised, Delivery was super fast and was easy to install, Thanks!


Bought for a 2018 Nissan Frontier. Fit the wire plug perfectly and the Screws and nuts to secure the plug to the bracket were fine. The two screws to attach the bracket to the vehicle were way too small to use. They wouldn't work on the mounting tab on the Draw-Tite hitch or the factory holes under the bumper. I suppose if your creating new holes they would be okay. Appears to be a quality piece and I'm very satisfied with it.


Very good fit and holding up well.


Works great


Had to make a few adjustments but worked on my 2021 Hyundai Palisade


The mounting bracket for my trailer connector was easy to attach and worked very well with my trailer connector.



Still working great.


This mounts perfectly!


Although this bracket comes with tapping screws to mount to a metal undersurface structure, it only has 4 screws for the 7 point hitch device to screw into it and no additional screws to mount to the hitch itself. It should come with 6 locking screws for that purpose. I had to use 2 to mount it to the hitch and 2 to mount the 7 point hitch device into the bracket, leaving 2 spots open. I went to my local hardware store and autozone and couldn’t find these exact screws and etrailer doesn’t sell them as a separate order.


Great product and easy installation!


Product went together as described and when attached to the short no drill mount bracket provided a sturdy mount for the 7way plug.


Easily installed on my 2021 Chevy Blazer RS. Has held up will with one year of use.


Just the right part for the job! Perfect fit for my 7-way harness and on my draw-tite hitch!

  • How To Mount 7-way Connector To Trailer Hitch Receiver On 2021 Subaru Ascent
    You will want to use the short no drill mounting bracket # 18140 to secure the 7-way connector to the Curt # C25VR on your 2021 Subaru Ascent. If you have not already ordered the 7-way connector I recommend the Tekonsha OEM Replacement Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118290 which is confirmed to fit your vehicle. In addition you will need another mounting bracket, # PK12711U as well. I included a few videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Brakes to a 1996 Starcraft Satellite 1224
    Already having the flanges on your axle will make things a bit easier, but you will need to verify a few things to make sure everything will be correct. The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 7" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 2,000 lbs # AKEBRK-2 will use a standard 4 bolt pattern that will measure 2-7/8" from hole to hole around the outside and 4" when measured diagonally (picture included). This is a pretty common bolt pattern, but with your trailer being from 1996, I do recommend double...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2019 Ford Ranger
    It sounds like you might be looking for parts needed to tow a trailer with a 2019 Ford Ranger without factory tow package. If that is the case then you'd first need to start with a trailer hitch, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13417 is an easy bolt-on option. Then, you will need a trailer wiring harness, the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector part # 22124 which can be secured with the Mounting Bracket part # PK12711U. If you only need a 4-way then you could...

  • Trailer Hitch and 7-Way Wiring Fitment for a 2023 Nissan Frontier
    From what I'm seeing it looks like the parts that are compatible with the 2022 Frontier are also compatible with a 2023 Nissan Frontier. So for your application I recommend using the following: Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver - # 75282 T-One Vehicle Wiring - # 118266 Mounting Bracket - # PK12711U If you don't already have a ball mount I also recommend checking out the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B because of it's versatility.

  • Recommend Trailer Hitch Receiver For A 2021 Chevy Traverse
    For your 2021 Chevy Traverse I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # CU29FR. It has a maximum gross trailer weight capacity of 5,000lbs and maximum tongue weight capacity of 750lbs (note: this will increase the towing capacity or tongue weight of your vehicle so you'll need to refer to your owner's manual and follow whichever rating is lower). If you need a trailer wiring harness as well then I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer...

  • Installing Brake Controller and 7-Way Trailer Connector on 2010 Honda Pilot
    To swap out your existing 4-pole for a 7-way, you'll need part # 118253 which includes all the fuses and relays necessary to fully activate the tow package on your 2010 Pilot. If you previously installed the 4-pole using part # 118491, you've already installed all the needed fuses. You'll just need to add one additional relay in the fuse box located in the cargo area. The # 118253 will provide some fuses and a relay you won't need now, but it's always good to have spares. I've provided...

  • Should I Get The Factory Towing Package Or Go With An Aftermarket Set Up On A 2022 Chevy Traverse?
    If you are looking at upgrading to a 2022 Chevy Traverse specifically so you can start towing a camper, I highly recommend going with the aftermarket set up. Not only will this be quite a bit less expensive, these will tend to be longer lived than what comes from the factory as they are specifically built to last. Having a towing package also does not mean the vehicle can tow more than non-towing models, so I say save the money. Especially since the American made Curt # CU29FR hitch will...

  • Correct 7-Way Mounting Bracket for the Nissan Tow Package Wiring Harness # 118266
    The Draw-Tite 7-Way Mounting Bracket, # 18138, will not fit the Nissan Tow Package Wiring Harness, # 118266, that you purchased. The correct mounting bracket is the Pollack 7-Pole Mounting Bracket, # PK12711U. This bracket is listed in the related items on the product page for the Nissan wiring harness. You will also want the installation hardware, # PK11926, unless you plan on using the hardware from the Draw-Tite bracket.

  • Will 2014 Ford Explorer Without Tow Package Have Socket To Install 7-way Trailer Connector
    Even though it doesn't have the tow package, the 2014 Ford Explorer will still have the rectangular connector located under the vehicle behind the passenger side rear wheel as shown in the linked install video for the Curt # C56278. On some vehicles, there are two identical connectors. If this is the case, use the black, not the gray connector. You'll also need the # PK12711U bracket as well as the # 18136 if the hitch you use doesn't have the mounting stand-off. Speaking of hitch, I'd...

  • Does Curt Hitch # C15312 Come with Bracket for Mounting Trailer Wiring
    The Curt trailer hitch part # C15312 that you referenced doesn't have trailer wiring mounting brackets as typically the truck this is installed on has a cutout or opening on the bumper for wiring to attach to. But if you had an aftermarket bumper maybe and needed a bracket the part # PK12711U can attach to your rear bumper so that the 7-way can mount.

  • How To Secure 7-Way Trailer Connector On 2016 Honda Pilot
    In order to secure the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package part # 118286 on a 2016 Honda Pilot we typically use a combo of the Mounting Bracket part # PK12711U and No-Drill Bracket part # C57202. There is an install video below which goes on about the bracket combo a bit more. I unfortunately don't have any insight on the OEM hitch but the above combo should allow the connector to be mounted no matter the hitch although bending of the bracket may be necessary.

    I would be happy to recommend all of the components you will need to add a 7-way connector to your 2013 Nissan Frontier SV 4x4 without the factory tow package. You are correct that you will need the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118266 to replace your current 4-way connector and give you the 7-way connector needed for a trailer with trailer brakes. The Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 you mentioned is a great choice as it is an extremely reliable trailer brake...

To upgrade your connection to a 7-way you need the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118283. This is going to plug into the factory connection at the rear of your truck.

    Good question, though your 2016 Honda Pilot does not need the factory tow package to add a 7-way, and the connector will exist under the Pilot even without the tow package. All you'll do is add a 7-way which states "for Factory Tow Package" but will work even if you don't have that because it comes with the necessary fuses to activate the tow package. What you'll need to add a 7-way to a 2016 Honda Pilot is the following: - T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 7-Way Trailer...

    I actually recommend that you use the Hopkins connector, # HM40975, because it comes with a 7-Way and a 4-Way and also comes with a bracket. The connection at the back is made to fit the factory harness on a 2003 Chevy Silverado that came with a factory 7-Way. I have included a link to a video that shows a typical installation for you. If you want to go with a regular 7-Way use # PK11893 and bracket # PK12711U.

    I have a mounting option for you, but the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13514, does not have a built in mounting bracket for part # PK12711U. Instead, I recommend using our no-drill mounting bracket, part # C57202, along with the mounting bracket you referenced, # PK12711U. The no-drill bracket will wrap around the round tube crossmember of the hitch to provide a mounting point for the 7-way bracket.
