Video Transcript for Brophy Mounting Bracket for 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector Review

Today, you're going to be taking a look at the Brophy mounting bracket for four-pole flat trailer connectors. That's going to be part number BK4F.So here's what our four-pole bracket's going to look like once we have it installed. It's going to allow us to have our four-pole wiring right by our hitch. That way whenever we get ready to tow, we can plug right up. This is going to be a lot better solution to secure our wire rather than just hanging it on our hitch or securing it to our safety chain connection point because we don't have to worry about our wires hanging down and possibly getting damaged.Our bracket is going to work with most four-pole standards plugs, and even if we remove the dust cap, you can see it's not going to fall back in even if we have to really push to plug in our trailer. Installing it is going to be as simple as putting two bolts in and running your four-pole connection through the bracket.

Let's show you how to do that now.Our four-pole bracket is going to have two holes on it, so we can either mount it to our hitch or another bracket so we can put our wiring in place. Keep in mind that our bracket's not going to come with any hardware, but if you are using a short or long bracket, there will be hardware with that kit. So I'm going to drop down my hardware from on top of the bracket. I'll line up the hole in my four-pole bracket, and I'll do that for the other hole as well. Then I'll come back and tighten up all the hardware.Now, you just want to take the dust cap off your four-pole, and coming from the back side, we'll push it through.

You just want to make sure that you push it in far enough that the tabs on there are going to catch. This will prevent it from going back in. I'm just going to have to work it back and forth a little bit. Then we can tie up any of the excess wires behind the hitch, and we can even put a little bit of electrical tape to hide the color on the back of our car.That'll finish up your look at the Brophy mounting bracket for four-pole flat trailer connectors, part number BK4F.

Brophy Mounting Bracket for 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector - BK4F

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (432 Customer Reviews)

Bracket for 4-way flat trailer connector mounts to your trailer hitch or vehicle bumper and provides a sturdy, fixed location to easily connect your trailer wiring.

by:

This part is too small for the wiring on the
Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. The mechanic had to file the opening to make it larger.



by:

Just what I wanted. This bracket is a perfect fit for my trailer hitch receiver. Bracket installs very easily and keeps the 4-pin connector looking nice and neat without having it hang below the bracket or bumper.



by:

Connector doesn't fit in bracket, no screws given to secure to bracket

Etrailer Expert

Jenny N.

6/12/2024

I know that with these brackets there are times where the bracket is a smidge too big and the connector is small enough where it does not work. I recommend is to use electrical tape to thicken up the four flat connector so that it stays in place. These brackets do not typically come with the self tapping screws to install.



by:

All 3 items arrived together and on schedule. The only reason I do not give the purchase 5 stars is because the wiring harness had to be modified to work with my car. If I didn’t go to a trailer repair company, the wiring may still not be on the car.



by:

Couldn’t have been much easier. Remove the plastic cover under the left rear of the vehicle (3 push pins and 2 14mm plastic nuts), remove the cap on the factory harness, plug in the new harness and secure the wires as you see fit. There’s no instructions for wire storage or how to route them, but it’s very simple - use common sense - plenty of YouTubes.



by:

No instructions!! I have no idea how the flat connector is supposed to mount this thing

Etrailer Expert

You can mount this to your bumper with self tapping screws or you can mount it to part # 18140 which is an additional bracket that uses a metal zip tie to connect to the hitch. I have linked a video below that explains it in more detail.



by:

This is a great mounting solution for the 4-pin flat trailer connector. Works as advertised.



by:

Connector snaps in snugly, and having it mounted by the hitch is much better than having to pull the wiring out of vehicle each time I pull a trailer.



by:

Delivery was fast and on time as promised! Installation videos and instructions were spot on. Would highly recommend!



by:

Easy to install and works great to keep the wiring harness from dragging.



by:

Works like a charm. Highly recommend etrailer.com A+++++++



by:

Mounted fine to bumper, but does not hold harness at all.

Etrailer Expert

That is kind of a bummer. Sometimes the bracket can be just a little too big and harness a little too small enough to make it not work. What I recommend is to use electrical tape to thicken up the four flat connector so that it stays in place.



by:

great item fast shipping i would recommend this item for a neat way to keep socket secure



by:

Easy to install and etrailer was very helpful finding the right parts.



by:

It is fine but did come with any mounting hardware.



by:

Easy to install as depicted in video.



by:

Easy install



by:

Seemed cheap (Thin metal) but works well with the harness kit. I bought this because NOBODY makes a aftermarket flange mount flat plug only trailer plug in.

little oxidation on the pins. a little sanding and dielectric grease and alls well.



by:

Simple but effective means to hold connector. I taped everything for more secure and professional looking mounting.

Allen

Just fine! Not a complicated device!



by:

Thank You made life and wife Easy. Very professional looking



by:

Good material, plug was a little tight getting in but will not fall out.



by:

As advertised.



by:

Have been doing business with these guys for a while now, they are the best. Good products and excellent customer service. Every time I have a product question, whoever I am talking to knows their products well.



by:

Great bracket quality for the price.



by:

Like that all parts are exactly as called for on the vehicle

  • Best Hitch Curt or Draw-Tite for a 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz
    The Curt Trailer Hitch item # C23WR and the Draw-Tite Hitch item # DT48GR are almost identical and are both confirmed to fit the 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz. The main differences between the two hitches are that the Curt is made in the USA and the Draw-Tite has a built in tab to mount a 4-way or 7-way wiring bracket. Both hitches are a class III, with a 2" receiver, that weigh right at 40 lbs. They have a 5,000 lbs towing capacity, and a 750 lbs maximum tongue weight. Neither one of them...

  • Recommended Hitch for a 2023 Mazda CX-9
    To add a class III hitch to your 2023 Mazda CX-9 you will want the Draw-Tite Trailer hitch item # 76020. This hitch is custom fit and attaches to your Mazda with included hardware. I verified with Draw-Tite that this hitch will fit the 2023 models. For a custom fit wiring harness you will want the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package item # 118278. This fits the models with the factory towing package. We do not have any other options for your vehicle. To attach...

  • 2023 Ford Bronco Wildtrak Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations
    Since flat tow wiring is designed to receive a signal and trailer wiring harnesses are designed to send a signal you will need a second wiring harness on your 2023 Ford Bronco Wildtrak, but it will be a style that tees in so it will fit with the Curt flat tow wiring. Here are the parts I recommend installing on your Bronco: - Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT37GR - Curt Wiring # C42WR (for 4-Way flat) OR Tekonsha Wiring # TK55VR (for 7-Way) - Wiring Bracket # BK4F (for...

    For your 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo X I recommend using the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98901. This receiver will fit below the stock fascia and does not require any cutouts or replacement fascia's to be installed. I have linked an installation video below for this receiver so you can see the installation process. The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118727 will allow you to install a 4-way flat connector. You can the Mounting Brackets # 18140 & # BK4F to secure the 4-way to...

  • Best Way To Attach Trailer Plug Bracket To A Trailer Hitch Without A Pre Welded Bracket
    As far as the mounting bracket, you can absolutely screw it directly to the hitch if you want. We do this frequently in our own installs and it will not compromise the strength of the hitch in any way. Now putting a few holes in the hitch does open up the potential for rust, since we are compromising the powder coating, but the risk is small. You could use the bracket # BK4F for a 4-flat or use the # C67UR for a 7 way, and a self tapping screw like # 101131802. If you do not want to drill...

  • 4-Way Flat Wiring Recommendation for a 2010 Ford Edge

    We have a couple of options for mounting a 4-flat connector to your Tacoma's hitch. If you have a Draw-Tite hitch with the built in tab all you will need is the Mounting Bracket for 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector item # BK4F. This attaches in the pre-drilled slots. If you have a hitch with a round or square crossbar you will need the No-Drill Mount for Electrical Mounting Bracket item # 18140 and the item # BK4F.

  • Correct Curt Wiring Harness for 2023 Ford Bronco with LED or Halogen Tail Lights
    It does matter if your 2023 Ford Bronco has LED lights or not, but once you figure that out it's just a simple matter of getting either of these harnesses: - With LEDs # C42WR - Without LEDs # C87BR Both options plug in behind your tail lights and then draw power from the vehicle battery via the included wiring lead. I also recommend picking up the mounting brackets # C57202 and # BK4F so you can secure the 4-Way connector next to your hitch receiver for easy access.

    According to Curt the Item # C13284 hitch you were looking at stopped fitting the CX-9's after the 2022 model year. The correct hitch for your 2023 Mazda CX-9 is the Draw-Tite item # 76020. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your Mazda with included hardware. This is a class III hitch with a 2" receiver. It has a 4,500 lbs towing capacity and a 675 lbs maximum tongue weight. This hitch can be used with weight distribution systems but that will not increase its capacity. I have linked...

  • How to Add Additional 4-Way Connection to a 2022 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    I've got a quick and easy solution for you with the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C55384. This tees in behind your current 4-Way/7-Way using the US CAR connection and gives you an additional 4-Way that you'll be able to use the same time your 7-Way is being used. I recommend picking up the Brophy Mounting Bracket # BK4F and N-Drill Mounting Bracket # 18136 so the additional 4-Way can be held in a place that has easy access.

  • 2023 Chevrolet Equinox Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for Towing a U-Haul Trailer
    We installed all of these hitches on the same 2023 Chevy equinox and found the ground and bumper clearances to be 11" and 5" respectively so I recommend going with the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e59ZR because of the black matte finish. I had the etrailer hitch installed on my 2010 Chevy Equinox and that finish not only did a great job at protecting the steel from road debris, but it also looked great with the darker bumper - so you'll be getting great looks and durability with this...

    To transport a kayak with your 2022 Chrysler Pacifica we'll need to get you a trailer hitch so you can tow a roof rack on wheels since there currently (as of May 2023) aren't any roof rack options for your vehicle aside from what it comes from the factory with, and even that isn't compatible with the Hullavator. For the trailer hitch I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C65CR because it has a 2" receiver and hidden crosstube. Then for wiring you need the T-One # TK96FR along with...

    Sure do! You'll need the Curt # CU94FR which is a custom fit plug and play installation for your 2023 Hyundai Tucson, and will give you the 4-way connector you need to hook up your trailer. You'll also need the 4-way mounting bracket # BK4F and # 18136 to secure the 4-way to your hitch. If you don't already have a trailer hitch installed then you'll want to pick up the etrailer # e38KR as well.

    You have the Class III Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, 76192 on your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan, this has an integrated mounting point for a 4-pole flat trailer connector. I suggest the Brophy bracket, # BK4F. Simply install the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118811 per included instructions and then put the 4-way flat plug through an existing opening in the floor pan of your Tiguan.

  • Does Brophy BK4F 4-Way Mounting Bracket Come with Mounting Hardware
    The 4-way mounting bracket # BK4F does not come with mounting hardware as it varies based on application what the best way to install it is. The easiest solution would be to source a couple self tapping screws locally and use them to attach the bracket to the rear of your vehicle.

You won't be able to use bolts since this is connected directly to the tube of the hitch on your 2019 Nissan Frontier. You could also use the # 18140 to allow for a no drill/screw application.

  • Will the Curt Powered Tail Light Converter # C59236 Fit a 2022 BMW X3?
    Yes, the Curt Powered Tail Light Converter # C59236 will fit on your 2022 BMW X3. If you are worried about splicing into the wires we do have the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness # 119250KIT which uses sensors placed over the tail light wiring. These sensors detect when power is going through the wiring to activate the 4-way wiring. You will want a Mounting Bracket # BK4F if you plan on mounting the 4-way near your receiver rather than running it through the rear hatch when needed.

This receiver was designed to fit like the factory receiver and hide behind the rear cover when not needed.
