Review of the Tow Ready 4-Pole Flat Mounting Bracket

Today we're going review part number 18144 from Tow Ready. This is a mounting bracket for 4-pole flat trailer connectors. Not much here but it is an all-steel bracket with a powder-coat finish to it. It also has the hardware that comes with it to attach this bracket, whether to another bracket or another structure on the vehicle. Your 4-pole connector will fit inside here with a friction fit. A typical location will be on the bottom a bumper. It is stiff enough material or it doesn't move like this plastic. Traditionally, you can also put this to a metal structure behind the bumper if you've got room.

The hitch may have a bracket already installed from the factory or may have an after-market bracket such as this. To install it, we'll typically go ahead and put your hardware in place onto your bracket. Then put a 4-pole bracket into place. Then install the nuts. To tighten down the nuts, you'll use a 3/8 socket. We'll guide it into place.

If you got a good enough finger grip you can rock it back and forth and work it in place. With that we have a nice, neat bracket for our 4-pole connector. We don't have to worry about the 4-pole flapping around in the breeze. That will finish it for our review of part number 18144 from Tow Ready, the mounting bracket for a 4-pole flat. .

Questions and Comments about this Video


Regarding my experience with the installation. Other 4 pin flat connectors may be of a thicker material. The 4 pin flat connector isnt held securly in the bracket. A little super glue on the top and bottom where the 4 pin connector is in contact with the bracket makes it a permanent installation. 6456
