I was surprised at how sturdy this installation is. etrailer sure helped me out along the way with this installation. Special thanks to Alex J for his help on several occasions to help me get the right hitch and accessories for my new 2021 Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy.

I am having a problem with the install of the three Curt trailer components I purchased. I intentionally bought all of the same brand assuming that they would work together. The problem is that the Curt wiring harness (part# C55774) is too long and rigid. When the 7-pin connector is installed in the bracket that comes with it, it measure 5 inches until the black wire protective sleeve bends (to go under the hitch receiver frame). The no-drill bracket (part# C57202) is supposed to attach the harness bracket to the hitch. But it is only 6.5" long, and the hitch tube is 3" wide. So with the bracket attached to the hitch, there is only 3.5" of space left to mount the harness bracket so that the screw holes line up. I am disappointed that this is the case, especially as I called etrailer to check that the parts I was ordering would work together. It looks like I will have to discard C57202 and drill two holes into the bottom of the hitch and mount the harness bracket directly. This is what I wanted to avoid - having to drill holes.


Comments
The 7-way bracket that comes with the wiring harness part # C55774 is designed to be installed with the wiring harness bracket hanging below the no drill bracket part # C57202. Since you are worried about the loose wiring I would recommend using some wire loom such as part # 459075-1 to protect your wiring and zip tie any slack with zip ties part # DW05726-25. I know this is not the option you wanted but I feel it is better than drilling into the hitch.

Needed to replace my trailer connector as my oem was broken and also my oem hitch as well. Mike Lindsay made it happen for me to make sure i could get my connector and proper mount to work. I applaud etrailers website but most importantly the staff that communicate and share INvaluable guidance to get a product chosen. Good people + good products = good business. Im happy! Thanks!

Great product, works as expected, and easy to install thanks to video provided. Gave it 4 stars vs 5 as clamp provided for trailer mounting bracket was too short. This was after confirming size with representative over the phone. Short bracket and long bracket offer the same 4-inch strap to secure onto hitch. My trailer hitch measures 3.5 x 3.5 inches, ended up securing long plate with large tie strap. Also hardware supplied to fasten bracket should be stainless steel but that's an easy upgrade to complete.

We made a special 5 hour drive to etrailer, and etrailer did (Fantastic) installation work on this part as well as installing the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate-4420-1, with Removable Arms, Wiring-RM-152-98146-7, Braking System-SM99251, Tow Bar-RM-522, Safety Cables-RM-645, and Brake Lite Relay-RM-88400 Kit on our 2011 Ford Fusion. We absolutely love this system. Ease of connectability and reliability is great. etrailer has stood tall on complete customer satisfaction and has prided themselves on doing things the right way the first time. We have a 2016 Honda Accord Touring that we are considering as a future tow vehicle, etrailer will be a clear choice. We recommend them with confidence. Thank you everyone at etrailer for great Communication, Customer Satisfaction, Service and product reliability!

This product was the perfect part for mounting a 4-way to 7-way round trailer connector for my Teardrop trailer.

by:

Works as expected. Clamp screw slips a bit when starting to tighten. I would have opted for the shorter bracket. This one puts the connector even with hitch receiver.

Went together without any problems, I pre-assembled the two brackets ( 7-Way Round Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket - Long - C57202 and the Pollak 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector - Vehicle End - PK12711U) then crawled under and put the clamp around the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2" that I bought along with this purchase and snapped in my existing 7 way and it was all set up. Very sturdy, though I was concerned with how stable it would when I purchased it. Turns out it is really solid, very happy with the setup. The hitch is a really beefy, so I'm quite pleased with it as well. I did enlist the help of a friend to get it up into place, which I think was the easiest path. If one had to, you could do it alone, but so much easier with a couple of extra hands. All in all, probably took 2 hours for the complete install. I had a standard OEM hitch that I had used to attach a 9000 lbs pull capacity winch to pull up trees on my property, consequently, it stretched/hogged out my 5/8" pin hole, so every time I stopped or started with a trailer, it would slap around. Turns out the OEM hitch is rated for 7500 lbs, this Curt Hitch is rated at 16,000, so I should have no future problems. I'm happy with the setup. I expected that Curt would have engineered a better way to attach the 7 way when they designed the Hitch, I expected better from them.

The Curt No-Drill Bracket worked absolutely perfect for my Drawtite hitch on my 2016 Subaru Outback. Super easy installation and the hose clamp worked a lot better and tighter than I expected it to. I would highly recommend this product if you are wanting to mount your wire harness to your hitch!

Not the cleanest/prettiest harness, but it works and that's all that matters.

This is a nice bracket , but be advised if using with an F250 in combination with an EZ Connector install , the bracket might not be long enough to extend from the hitch . Perhaps this isn't a problem with smaller hitch bars , but the F250 is a sizable piece of metal that doesn't allow enough remaining length to install the EZ bracket correctly ( receiver end doesn't fit ) .

Works great no drilling time saver.

It’s a good idea for a clean installation however I have never been to satisfied using the flimsy brackets that come with most of these trailer plugs aftermarket. Usually I just drill a hole in the bumper and install the plug in the same location the factory does it. I wish they would make these brackets of thicker steel.

Ordered parts for installing a brake controller. The videos that are part of the web site were a great help in selecting all the needed parts, detailed down to the part numbers that were needed. I really like the fact that there is a video showing the brake controller installation with my specific vehicle. Great service !

  • Will Curt No-Drill Mounting Bracket Fit Round Crosstube of Draw-Tite Hitch for 2019 Nissan Titan
    The Curt No-Drill Bracket # C57202 is compatible with rounded trailer hitch crosstubes like how the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76154 is designed for your 2019 Nissan Titan. It is worth noting that although the Draw-Tite has a mounting bracket already installed on the crosstube itself, as you can see in the attached photo, the wiring on your Nissan will not reach that far so the bracket mentioned above is needed (like what you found). If you don't already have a trailer connector on your...
