Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat - 18144

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (4277 Customer Reviews)

Mounting bracket for 4-way flat connectors secures your trailer wiring up and out of the way. Includes required mounting hardware.


I highly recommend this product. The wiring harness locks into the bracket, and it provides solid stability.


This is a must-have with a Draw-Tite hitch if you want to run your harness outside the vehicle! It already has a mounting bracket and this bracket bolts right on! The 4 pin plug on the harness slides in from the rear and fits securely. There are some rubber ribs on the plug that hold it in place pretty well. With the rubber cover on the plug, it can't go anywhere!

In stock and fast ship!


Works great, I bought this thinking it would attach to the hitch I purchased but the hitch didn't have a spot to screw this into. I made it work by slipping straps through it and tightening around hitch. Worked perfectly

You can also use the mounting brackets that strap to the hitch along with this bracket. They are part # 18140

which is longer.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/28/2022


Solid enough, seems to only be able to slide through one way. I put it in the other way for a cleaner look but now it doesn't hold as well. I had to put a small bead of silicone to hold it in place.


The mounting bracket 4-pole flat gets the job done. It's a little smaller than what I had pictured in my mind, but that's probably a good thing. It can be a little tough getting the harness plug set into position, but once in place I think it will do a good job of keeping it there. It makes for a nice clean look for your wiring harness. Definitely worth the cost!


I have used this mount bracket #18144 on three different vehicles.Wouldn’t do a plug in without it so many ways to mount It. Great product. 2016 Ford Explorer


Really nice way to make your install look professional! Worked great! Word to the wise, Run the trailer wire through BEFORE you start to install.


Works perfect, no more wires hanging down and possibly getting damaged by the pavement. Easy install and tight fitting. Didn't require additional hardware of any kind.


Hitch was easy to install . It fit perfectly. Super fast shipping


Because I had ordered a trailer hitch from etrailer before it was easy to order another for my my other car. I ordered a new hitch for my 2013 dodge Durango along with the wiring harness for lights. Came 2 days earlier than promised. Took me about 35 minutes to install the hitch and wiring harness as well. Probably the easiest install I've had yet. Thanks for a great product.


Perfect setting, but would have liked more security in the cabel. Some way of locking it to the mount. It rests in there and makes it easier than fishing it out each time. However, because the wiring moves when pluging up the trailer, my smaller hands are easier than my husbands.


everything fit right and the rear light towing harness works prefect. You people have the parts and know how for sure. I would recommend them for sure.

Works as intended. Tight fit to the plug. Use lubricant to install.


4 pole flat would not pull through hole in bracket. Had to trim the ridges from plug. Very poor. Ended up pulling through with pliers and pulled it clear through and then had to cut the wires to get it out. Pull through again and splice the wires. The two items I ordered are not compatible. Now I have altered a $40 harness. Very dissatisfied.

Perhaps this connector will work better for you item # 43365
Hopkins Plug-In Simple Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 07/13/2022


Mounts on bumper with screws. Flimsy, thin, not solid. Thin metal so connector pops out of bracket when connecting to trailer or putting harness cap back on. Better than just leaving wiring harness hanging, but not by much.


item was exactly as described. Will allow me to properly mount and protect my trailer light connection. Came with everything needed to mount to tow bar (many brackets do not, be careful ordering elsewhere)

After a year, the bracket is still keeping my connector firmly in place and my wires up and out of the way. Was easy to install and well worth the price.
David - 05/18/2022


It works not isn’t great. The plug isn’t very secure when pushed into the opening and I had issues with the self taping screws breaking. Maybe rhat was my fault? Got it installed though and suits my purpose.


This mounting bracket was the way to go when installing our Draw-Tite trailer hitch and T-One Wiring Harness on our 2020 Traverse. Bolted right on to the provided mounting plate on the hitch. Out of the way, yet easy access.


Works as advertised. I appreciate this product being linked to the wiring harness. I like the mount way more than just letting the plug dangle.


The mounting bracket fit the hitch perfectly, and took only a couple of minutes to install. I had previously installed a wiring harness on my Highlander Hybrid, and I easily attached it to the bracket. Totally satisfied with hitch, harness, and bracket.


Great little inexpensive bracket- 4 pin adapter clips nicely to it so my hitch & wire install look finished and don't have the wires dangling like you often see.


Installed the 4-pole flat mounting bracket on my 2021 Toyota Highlander - very easy to install. I ended up zip tying it to my hitch and it holds solid and has been in place for over a year with no issues.


Very good service and on time
I have
installed my trailer hitch on my 2021 Highlander XLE Hybrid and it looks great very good instructions

Great just the hitch I needed
David - 07/31/2022


Connect this bracket far enough away from the trailer hitch so you have plenty of room to put in and withdraw the hitch pin. I installed mine to the left of the hitch receiver a little too close and had to be careful with the hitch lock pin and trailer chains. Hope this helps.


I've always just had a loose harness in the past. This bracket really changes trailer hookup for me.
