    Item #C42CR was not in the delivery package. It has not been received.
    The hitch was received in good order and was installed as hoped. I am extremely pleased with the tow hitch. I highly recommend it.

    Great to hear that about the hitch! I will have our customer service team reach out to you about the missing bracket.



    by:

    It doesn’t come With the self driving screws, but the bracket was perfect for what I needed. Fortunately I had some self driving bolts that worked perfectly. I believe 7/16 or 3/8 was the size of the self driving bolts that I used



    by:

    Follow the great video that is available thru etrailer website and you will not have any install issues..purchase the wiring kit and bracket and the install will go as planned. The products are built to last and fit is perfect..
    READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS before install...



    by:

    This mounting bracket is great for securing the flat 4-wire connector. It looks very factory!



    by:

    I'm going to tap two screw holes in beam and attach curt mounting bracket. It would be nice if the holes were included with the trailer hitch.



    by:

    The etrailer components and install guide worked perfectly. Saved me hundreds from local retailers.



    by:

    A strong and versatile bracket to mount a 4 prong trailer connector.
    Quick and easy online ordering.



    by:

    I WAS GOING TO GET A HITCH FROM ANOTHER COMPANY THAT SELLS AND INSTALLS HITCHS [AND RENT TRUCKS AND TRAILERS]. THEY MADE IT SEEM THAT IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO MYSELF, AND THEN I DID SOME LOOKING ON YOUR WEBSITE, AND WATCHED YOUR VIDEO. YOU SHOWED STEP BY STEP ON WHAT DO. TOLD ME TO LOOK FOR WIREING HARNESS THAT HAD A PLUG TO PLUG YOUR WIRE TO. EVERTHING WAS JUST AS HE SAID, IT TOOK ME 1 HOUR TO INSTALL HITCH AND WIRE HARNESS, SAVED ME AROUND $[XX], THANK AGAIN.



    by:

    This does not work with Tekonshea 4 pole connectors that are tapered. It will not lock into place. Additionally, it does not come with any self tapping screws or anything to attach this to the hitch. I would not recommend this.

    It is not the first time we have heard this. Sometimes it happens with these types of four flat bracket no matter the brand. I recommend using electrical tape to thicken the four way connector to help it stay in. You are correct in that I wish the manufacturer would include hardware with it. Or you can consider using this with a no drill bracket like part # 18136 or part # 18140.



    by:

    Worked great I ordered the universal mount for it also, but did not use it. I put the Draw Tite undermount hitch on Grand Cherokee last year and didn't realize it had the mount welded on it. Advice check yours before ordering.



    by:

    This does the trick. Looks factory and is easy to install. Definitely recommend using this for wiring you trailer hitch plug. Clean installation and looks great.



    by:

    I’m sure it’s a good piece. My curt hitch is round. Bumper is plastic so I didn’t want to secure it to that. I went and looked at reviews and saw a video that shows a long bar with a strap that it was attached to to secure it. Wish I had seen that when I was ordering.



    by:

    Item was delivered when promised. It came without the required bolts and nuts to install it.



    by:

    Easy and simple. Only gave 4 stars because item did not come with mounting bolts. Easy fix with bolts I had on hand. No drilling required because it was compatible with the Draw Tite Class III (76034) I also purchased from etrailer.

    No issues since the day I mounted it.



    by:

    I had to open the mounting holes slightly to match the holes in the hitch. Other than that it fit great.



    by:

    The Draw-Time trailer hitch went on without a "hitch". The process of ordering the correct components (hitch, wiring harness and 4 pole plug mount) for my 2016 Ford Flex was nearly effortless with only one call to clear up one concern. etrailer's videos that were vehicle and product specific made for a great experience. Thanks



    by:

    The bracket is durable enough and the plug will fit well enough however I did have issues finding a good mounting for the bracket based on size and configuration



    by:

    The final piece of the puzzle for me...finishing off the installation of a hitch and wiring harness on my wife's car. This will keep everything neat and easily accessible. Thanks for making all of it so easy!



    by:

    The connector fits into the bracket but it doesn’t hold in securely. I expected that it would “clicK” in somehow and hold tight but not the case. The fit is not snug and would fall out if not for the cap on. The connector .

    That can happen with this type of bracket no matter the brand of harness. I recommend using electrical tape to thicken the four way connector to help it stay in.



    by:

    It is fine and fits wire harness well



    by:

    Did not install this yet but disappointed that it did not come with mounting screws and nuts.



    by:

    Makes easy work of mounting the harness in a convenient and attractive location. Would be nice if the part came with adhesive or screws, but great for the price.



    by:

    ilike the bracket and it will do the job. but i was disappoint that it came with no mounting screws so it was a trip to the hardware store which took time and gas



    by:

    Sadly, this bracket does not work with non-Curt brand connectors. So my trailer connector, which is Tekonsha, is just zip-tied to it.

    • Where Is The Factory Trailer Connector On A 2023 Buick Envision
      Yes the factory trailer connector will be located behind the center of the rear bumper. It should be a square shaped plug with 4 pins. Once you locate it you can plug in the Curt wiring harness # C56325 and you will be good to go. It is recommended to get a bracket like # C42CR to secure the connector.

    • Installation of Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness 118258 On a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe
      I have attached an installation video of the # 118258 wiring harness on a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe for you. The installation is pretty straight forward once you have gained access to the factory connectors. To do this, you are going to start by lowering the spare tire, and then you would open up the cargo area and remove the access panels, threshold trim, trunk floor panels and trays. Proceed by removing the trim panel on the driver side, but make sure you remove the fastener on the driver...

    • Recommended 4-Way Connector for a 2019 Toyota Tacoma

I also recommend using the No-Drill Mount Bracket item # 18136 and the item # C42CR to secure the 4-way connector to your hitch. This will put it in an easy to reach spot and prevent the risk of it falling onto the road.

      They actually are not, but fret not! The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # 75713 will utilize existing bolts on your 2018 Dodge Durango. If you watch the install video I have included below, it will show you exactly where these bolts are located. It's a total of 4 bolts (2 bolts on each side of the vehicle), so it will be a pretty quick and straight forward install as well. Install instructions are also included below. Just as a side note, if you will be towing with this hitch, you...

    • What Trailer Wiring Bracket is Recommended for the 4-Way to 5-Way Adapter TR20046
      The # 47515 would be a bit too thin to fit the # TR20046 perfectly so a better option would be the # C42CR which is just a bit smaller and should work.

    • Is There A Wiring Mounting Tab On the Hidden Hitch Like The OEM Hitch for My 2004 Lexus RX330
      There is no tab on the Draw-Tite, item # 75153, for mounting the wiring harness. We do carry mounting options for the wiring on your vehicle. For the 4-way trailer connector you can use theCurt Mounting Bracket for 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector Item # C42CR. If you have a 7-way connector then you can use the 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box for Round Tube Hitches, item # 18159, which works very well with the round tube hitches.

    • Recommended 4-Way Wiring Harness for a 2023 Acura MDX
      As of (7/31/23) there are no custom fit wiring harnesses for a 2023 Acura MDX. To add a 4-way harness you will need the Curt Powered Tail Light Converter item # C59236. This is a universal harness so you will have to cut and splice wires. I also recommend using the No-Drill Mount Bracket item # 18136 and the item # C42CR to secure the 4-way connector to your hitch. This will put it in an easy to reach spot and prevent the risk of it falling onto the road.

I also recommend picking up the Mounting Brackets # C42CR and # C57202 so your wiring connector is readily available next to your hitch receiver. We haven't had a chance to install this hitch on a 2023 Forester as of yet, but when we installed this hitch on a 2022 model we found from the ground to the top inside of the hitch receiver measured 14" which should be similar...
