Review of Draw-Tite Accessories and Parts 18159

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 18159. This is a 6 and 7-way trailer connector mounting box for round or square tube hitches. This is from Draw-Tite. Again, it's going to be designed for 6 and 7-way connectors. It's going to fit hitches with round or square cross tubes. The way it comes already set up is designed for a square tube hitch.

It's got little cutouts here in the back and here in the front. That's going to change that triangle point to a nice half circle. That way it will fit well around a round cross tube as well. It's going to feature a compact and professional appearance. It's made from corrosion-resistant materials, like a heavy duty plastic construction. Very easy installation on new or prewired vehicles.

This bracket right here is going to be the bracket that's going to mount it to your hitch. It just runs through the slots and it's going to go around the hitch and back into itself and all you have to do is tighten that down to secure that mounting strap in place. It's going to include the screws. That way you can mount the connector to the box here. I do have a connector just to show you how nice that looks in there. It fit in there just like that.

Just make sure that your holes are going to be lined up and then install the mounting hardware to get the connector secured to the box. With the connector installed, you can see how there's plenty of room back here for our wiring. It's also got a nice cutout right here to feed our wiring through as well. We'll take a look at the overall dimensions real quick. The overall length measuring from front to back looks like it's going to give us a measurement of about 5-1/4 of an inch. Measuring this direction from edge to edge looks like it's going to give us a measurement of about 4-3/8 of an inch.

Then going this direction looks like it's going to be about 2-3/4 of an inch. That's going to do it for today's review of part number 18159. This is the 6 and 7-way trailer connector mounting box for round or square tube hitches from Draw-Tite accessories and parts. .
