Video Transcript for Pollak Wiring PK11771 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part #PK11771. This is the Pollak bracket for single pole trailer wiring socket, part #PK11851. This socket bracket is going to provide an easy mounting option for your single pole connector socket. The bracket includes a machined large hole right here for the socket to fit in. It's also going to have many other machine holes that are going to allow the bracket to attach to your vehicle frame, and they are going to assist in mounting the socket to the actual bracket. Now it's going to work with a variety of Pollack sockets such as part #PK11404, PK11609, PK11720, PK12720 and PK12801.

This is made from a nice steel construction so it's strong and durable. The diameter of this large hole here in the center take a measurement of that real quick. That's going to give us a measurement of 2 inches. The smaller holes here are going to have a diameter of 1/4 inch. These holes right here are going to give us a measurement of 5/8 inch x looks to be about 5/16 of an inch. So these are going to measure 5/8 x 5/16 and then the measurement that we have center-on-center the distance between those 2 holes is going to measure 2-1/4 of an inch.

Taking a measurement of the overall width is going to be about 3-5/8 of an inch. Then measuring in this direction, it looks like it's going to be around 3 inches. That's going to do it for our review of part #PK11771. This is the Pollak bracket for the single pole trailer wiring socket part #PK11851 but it also works with a variety of other Pollak sockets as well. .

Had everything I needed to wire my Jeep Grand Cherokee. YouTube videos exist to help. There some surprisingly difficult places to route the wires along the frame.

Will not work with Pollak 5-Pole, Round Pin Trailer Wiring Socket, Concealed Terminals - Chrome - Vehicle End



by:

I had trouble determining from the website if this bracket fit my socket. It does. It's a universal, I reall. I still had a bit of trouble associating it with my socket. I received it today and pleased I bought it.



by:

While the product is of good quality, it has one flaw. There is not sufficient space between the opening for the connector and the top where it needs to fasten to the vehicle. It might be suitable for some small connectors, but it is definitely not suited for ones like the Buyer's Products 2-Way Die-Cast Zinc Trailer Connnector - Truck Side - Vertical Pin Arrangement. I had purchased it because I did not see any other mounting brackets. I am in the process of making a spacer to provide more room at the top for the connector's door to open.

Other than that, it looks great and should hold up well. Just be aware of the limited room at the top.

A handy bracket that is still in-use, though I wish it was a bit more rigid or made from heavier gauge steel, as it tends to bend a bit too easily.



by:

Bracket was excellent quality and came quicker than expected. Item was exactly as described. It was packaged and shipped well. trailer.com worked their magic with shipping of this item. Great customer service!



by:

This works but I wish it were just a little bit stiffer at the bend. I shove a 7 pin plug into it and it requires a little finesse. If the plug isn't perfectly aligned and you attempt to push the plug in then the bracket will tend to deflect a little bit. But it still works and nothing is wrong with it - so it's a "keeper".



by:

good service



by:

Arrived on time, was able to track it while in shipment



by:

I just got home and my 4 mounting brackets were delivered on schedule. Now I can put my project together. Have been looking all over for these brackets, so glad that I found them on your website. Thanks for keeping me posted on my shipment and look forward to ordering other stuff from you.



by:

Functions as advertised. Nothing more to say. I always appreciate the speedy service and delivery. Your products are top notch and prices reasonable.

Still works great.



by:

These guys rock. We needed a 2 pin trailer connector with bracket asap. etrailer had the items in stock and got it shipped to me in record time. Thanks again!!!



by:

This stamped steel mounting bracket is very heavy duty. It fits the connector perfectly and has flexibility in mounting to the vehicle.



by:

Works Great to mount the trailer connector to the back of the vehicle. Looks nice and fits perfectly. We will order more in the future.



by:

This bracket is amazing. It gets along with the plug and the bumper. The wind doesn't bother it and it doesn't complain about rain. Do not hesitate to hire his brother. You won't be disappointed...



by:

Connector fits but not a perfect fit and leaves the back exposed to wheel splash. Need to coat the back of the connector with RTV. Still works good and beats trying to make one.



by:

Have not used it but it looks like it will work to mount my 7 way pin plug on my truck.



by:

The product arrived in a reasonable amount of time.
Also the item is as described.
Thank You.



by:

Easy to install, used the same holes that held 4 pin plug!



by:

Easy installation and the advice I received from Adam was spot on.



by:

High quality part that fit my needs perfectly. Shipped in a timely manner. Would purchase from E Trailer in future. Great place to do business.

  • Clearance For Pollak 7-Way PK11720 to Fully Open
    When mounted in the Pollak Bracket for Single-Pole Trailer Wiring Socket # PK11771, the Pollak Heavy-Duty, 7-Pole, Round Pin Trailer Wiring Socket - Vehicle End # PK11720 should be 1-13/16" above an overhead surface to fully open. That's with no clearance above the connector whatsoever though, so you may want to be sure you have at least 2 inches just to be safe. I have added links below to video reviews for you to check out of both the Pollak Bracket # PK11771 and Pollak Wiring Socket...

  • Installation Location of PK11609 For Flat Towing Wires on 2021 GMC Sierra 1500
    I recommend using the installation bracket # PK11771 to install the # PK11609, but the location where you install it really doesn't matter as long as it's on the bottom half of the front end on your 2021 GMC Sierra 1500. I recommend going down to the area near where your base plates are mounted as there will likely be part of the frame you can use to screw the bracket into; you could also attach the bracket to the fascia and it would also be secure.

  • Mounting Hole Dimensions for the Pollak Heavy-Duty, 7-Pole, Round Pin Trailer Wiring Socket
    The distance between the mounting holes for the Pollak Heavy-Duty, 7-Pole, Round Pin Trailer Wiring Socket # PK11720 is 3" on center. I have attached a photo to demonstrate this as well as a review video where this measurement is shown. We also carry the Pollak Bracket # PK11771 which can help make installing this socket easier. This has 1/4" diameter holes to mount the socket and then 1/2" x 3/8" mounting holes for the bracket itself. The mounting hardware is sold separately but can be...

  • How To Mount A Pollak 6-Pole Trailer Wiring Socket On A 2019 Subaru Outback
    If you're trying to attach the Pollak 6-Pole, Round Pin, Trailer Wiring Socket # PK11609 to the back of the Subaru for towing a trailer and there isn't a big enough cutout in the paneling to accommodate the socket then you'll need to get some brackets to mount it to the hitch. You can use a no-drill bracket # 18136 to connect to the hitch and then 6-pole bracket # PK11771 off of it for the # PK11609 to mount to.

  • What Gauge Wire Should be Used with Vehicle Side 2-Pole Socket Connector # PK12801
    The 2-Pole Socket Connector - Vehicle Side, # PK12801, will accept 4 or 6 gauge wire so it should be no problem for your application. If you also need a mounting bracket, use # PK11771. For the matching trailer end connector, if needed, use # PK12800.

  • What Size Mounting Bolt Should be Used for Pollack Mounting Bracket # PK11771?
    The diameter of the top mounting hole on # PK11771 is 5/8 inches long by 5/16 inches wide. This means that a 1/4 inch bolt would work great to attach this mounting bracket like the self tapping # FA1131822. I have linked the above mentioned products to this page for your convenience.

  • Mounting Bracket for 7-Way on 1997 Ford F-350
    The Pollak Bracket for Single-Pole Trailer Wiring Socket # PK11771 is only a fit for certain Pollak sockets and is not designed specifically to fit any year, make or model of truck. What I recommend is the Hopkins Universal Mounting Bracket for 7-Way and 6-Way Trailer Connectors # HM48625 which is going to be a fit for 7-way and 6-ways connectors. I have added a link to a video review of the Hopkins for you to check out.

  • Availability of a Mounting Bracket Compatible with 2-Pole Socket Trailer Connector # PK12801
    The 2-Pole Socket Connector - Vehicle Side, # PK12801, is housed in its own mounting bracket it you need to mount it flush against a surface. But, if a bracket is needed, you can use Pollak Bracket, # PK11771. I went out to the warehouse and pulled both parts and the mounting holes line up and the connector fits in the bracket opening. You may also be interested in the trailer side that is compatible, the 2-Pole Trailer Wiring Connector - Trailer Side, # PK12800.

  • How to Add a 7-Way Round Pin Trailer Connector to a 2011 Chevy Silverado with 7-Way Blade Connector
    Your 2011 Chevy Silverado has what is called a multitow trailer connector with a 4-Way flat and 7-Way blade style trailer connector. In order to convert the 7-Way portion to a 7-Way Round pin, all you will need is an adapter. We have one that would be perfect for you. Take a look at the Hopkins Adapter 7 Way Blade to 7 Way Round Pin, # 47595. All you will need to do is plug in the 7-Way blade end into your truck 7-Way. Then plug the trailer into the 7-Way round receptacle. This would be...

  • Trailer Wiring Socket Recommendation for a 4-Pole Round Trailer Connector
    For a 4-pole round trailer connector and socket, I would recommend looking at the Pollack Heavy-Duty 4-Pole Round Trailer Connector, # PK11409, and the Pollack Heavy-Duty 4-Pole Round Trailer Socket, # PK11410. The connector and socket have a chrome-plated finish for corrosion resistance. I have attached a photo showing the typical wiring set up for 4-pole round trailer connectors. This should help when you are wiring the connectors to your trailer and vehicle.

  • Are there Round or Blade Pins in the 4-Way to 7-Way Trailer Connector Adapter # 37185
    The 4-Pole to 7 and 4-Pole adapter # 37185 uses blade style pins. I have included a picture for you to view. If you need to install a 7-Way round pin vehicle side connector you can use # PK11720. You will need to hardwire the wires to the back. You will also need rubber boot # PK11761 and mounting bracket # PK11771. Or you could install the 37185 and use an adapter to go from the 7-Way blade to a 7-Way round pin, # 47595.

    The only difference between the Buyers Products 2-Way Die-Cast Zinc Trailer Connector # 337TC1002 and the Pollak 2-Pole Socket Connector # PK12801 is the brand. Aside from that these are interchangeable. They even fit the same mounting bracket # PK11771.

  • Recommended 7-Pole Round Plug & Play Wiring Harness Adapter for 2005 Ford Super Duty Factory Wiring
    It sounds like your 2005 Ford Super Duty was outfitted with the 7-way blade system which is the most common in the market today. To adapt your 7-way blade to a 7-pole round for your trailer, I recommend the Pollack # PK12728. This 7-pole connector is prewired to simply plug into your truck's 7-way plug. It has the # PK11720 connector you referenced but is pre-wired like you are desiring. A great mounting bracket for the # PK12728 is the # PK11771. I have linked all the above mentioned...

    Though replacing the plug on your trailer with something like the Hopkins 7-Way RV Style Connector with Molded Cable - Trailer End - 8' Long - RV Standard # H20046 will be my recommendation, if you wanted to keep your current 7 Pin on the trailer, the following can be used to adapt it. The Hopkins # H20046 will still be used, but it would be wired into the Pollak Bracket for Single-Pole Trailer Wiring Socket # PK11720. The 7-Pole Rubber Socket Boot # PK11761 would then keep the connections...

  • Using a 7-blade RV Connection To Power a Trailer Mounted Winch
    I would not try wiring a winch through a standard 7-way connector. Winches draw much more amperage than the wiring that can be installed in a 7-way trailer connector can handle. The best solution would be to use a winch wiring kit like the Winch Trailer Wiring Kit, item # BDW20043. This kit includes everything needed to install a connector at the rear of the vehicle and at the front of the trailer, for powering a winch. If you already have heavy enough gauge wire you can order the Electrical...

  • Recommendation For Getting Power To A Trickle Charger On A Trailer With A 4 Flat Plug
    The best way to accomplish what you want this to do will actually be to upgrade the 4 Flat plug on the trailer to a 7 Way. If you use something like the Hopkins # H20046, you will not need to connect all the wires. You will just need to match your blinker/brake signal, running light, and ground wires to the ones on the plug and them run the black wire to the trickle charger. A junction box like the # 38656 will also make this task a lot easier. If you do prefer to keep the 4 Flat on the...

  • Lighting Recommendations to Flat Tow a 2014 Kia Soul Behind a Motor Home with a Sterling Tow Bar
    For a magnetic light kit I recommend # RM-2120 as a good all around option. It, like most others, has a 4-Way flat connector. That will have to be cut off and a 6-Way vehicle end, # PK11609, and bracket # PK11771, will need to be used instead. The wiring functions are white for ground, brown for running lights, yellow for left turn/brake lights, and green for right turn/brake lights. For a hardwire option you can use 6-diode kit # 154-792-118158. But again it has a 4-Way end that will...

  • Adding a 7-Way Round Pin Trailer Connector to a 2010 Ford Expedition with a Factory 4-Way Flat
    Vehicles manufactured now-a-days are fitted with the blade style 7-Way so that is what most manufacturers make to fit vehicles either as replacements or aftermarket add-ons. To add a 7-Way round pin to your 2010 Ford Expedition you will need # PK11720, boot # PK11761, and mounting bracket # PK11771. What you can do is use # 37185 and replace the 7-Way blade with the 7-Way round but cutting the wires and reattaching them to the 7-Way round. But the easiest thing to do is go ahead and install...

    The easiest way to wire the battery for your winch will be to use the 7 way connector on your vehicle if you have one on your 2006 GMC Truck. You can get a 7 way trailer connector like part # A7WCB and use the Jacketed 2 Wire, part # 10-2-1, to connect a wire for the power and a wire for the ground in the connector. You will then run the ground wire, or white wire, to the negative terminal on the secondary battery and run the power lead, black wire, to the positive terminal on the battery....

  • Recommended Flat Towing Wiring Harness for 2020 Jeep Wrangler
    The Roadmaster # RM-676 Nighthawk uses a 7-to 6-way umbilical, so neither the # RM-152 or # RM-154 which use a 4 pole connection would work as they come out of the box. I'd use the # RM-154 along with the # PK12720 socket and # PK11771 bracket. If you no longer have the umbilical, you can use part # RM-15267 which is the full kit, including the umbilical, the wiring, diodes connector and mounting bracket. I've linked you to an install video for the wiring.

  • Mounting Bracket for Tow Ready 4-Way to 6-Way Trailer Connector Adapter, 1998 Lincoln Continental
    There can be some bracket/connector compatibility issues if the two components are of different manufacturers. Some sockets will not physically fit inside of some brackets. For the Mighty Cord adapter # A10-6034VP you would use bracket # RM-910030-5, but you would not attach it directly to the trailer hitch. What you would do is use short bracket # 18140 or long bracket # C57202, attach it to the hitch and then attach bracket 118137. Drilling into the hitch will void its warranty and can...
