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.

Update a year later, working fine. Havent used it much but seems to be solid.



by:

This is a handy little bracket for mounting the 4-Pole Flat connector. The Honda Pilot I am working on didn't have a good flat surface to mount to, so I cut a slot in the bracket and mounted it to the hitch. I think a factory slot would be a good improvement to this item



by:

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.

Jorge G.

Perfect, no issues and still tight to the hitch and bracket.



by:

Super customer service. The hitch was welded very accurately so mounting holes aligned perfectly, making installation a very quick job. I had a small problem with my wiring harness installation and ETrailer sent a replacement harness quickly, which worked great. The company and their employees try to make sure your purchase really works for you. By the way, I am a real customer. My vehicle is a Kia Sportage Hybrid.

Did not fit my 4 pole flat wiring harne ss.

Do you know what brand of wiring harness you have? This bracket doesnt fit Hopkins, Wesbar, TAP or Plug N Tow.

Thomas

@BrookeM I believe it's a Hopkins, can you recommend a mounting bracket that will fit?

@Thomas I looked at 4 other brackets and three of them are smaller than the one you got. Take a look at part # HM48595 . It a Hopkins as well, so this will fit nicely.


by:

Poor boxing. Parts came out. Hitch perfect. Wiring perfect but passenger side wire too short. Had to splice in 2’ of wire overall satisfied.



by:

Mounting Bracket very flimsy, and not holding 4-Pole Flat connector.
I had to use tie straps to hold connector in the bracket.



by:

The most difficult part of installing this trailer wiring kit was removing all of the junk I accumulated in my rear compartment to access the connector harness.

Once I did it only took like 3 minutes to completely install and put the floor back in place.

It works flawlessly, but here's a little hint - do not allow your trailer 4-pin connector to be stored outside without a rubber insulating boot on ot to prevent corrosion or wasps from making a mud nest inside it. I use aluminum foil wrapped around in and dielectric grease.

Hope this helps.



by:

The hitch and light wiring all went on well. The light wiring bracket parts were ordered in two separate transactions due to an oversight on the first call with your staff.
I was advised that a credit for shipping on the second wiring bracket part would be processed due to the staff oversight, but I do not think it ever was received.
I would appreciate a follow up on if that was not done, if it can be accomplished now.



by:

Not sure how it works with the wiring harness I bought. The Hopkins plug in doesn't work with this mount .



by:

This came shipped in several layers of plastic wrap along with the light kit, cap and small bracket. It was delivered with no damaga or scratches. It was fairly easy to install with the help of my son and a floor jack. we'll do the light kit installation another day. Everything lined up perfectly. We did remove the to plastic pins to make it easier to flex the plastic bumper. trim out of the way.



by:

Worked well. Nothing very technical here. It simply holds the connector along the bottom of your bumper to make it easier to plug in when attaching your trailer.



by:

A bit awkward to install after the hitch is already on your car. I couldn’t tighten the nuts as much as I would have liked because the screws were also spinning. I suggest installing this before attaching the hitch to your car, if possible. It’s does its job tough and holds the electrical socket in place.



by:

The mounting bracket worked perfect with both the Draw-Tite hitch, 76128, and Curt Harness, C56370, that I mounted on my 2024 Honda CR-V EX FWD.



by:

Installation was easy and the video was helpful. However, I have found that the hole is slightly too small to keep the connector in and put the cap on. It works fine when connected to a trailer, but if I am not connected, I can't get the protective cap on.

I know that we have found that some harness brands do not work well with the bracket. Hopkins is one of those brands and I see that you had purchased a Hopkins wiring harness. It sounds like it is slipping out. If this is the case, I have heard that using electric tape to wrap about the connector to make it thicker helps.



by:

The 4-pin bracket mounts easily. I wish the cable fit a little more snugly in the hole, but it does the job well



by:

This company has the most extensive product line of any company out there. They're service is th best and the knowledge of the employees is amazing! You can't go wrong by using this company for all your hitch accessories. Just look how vast there website is! I'm very pleased with them.



by:

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.

Roland

Actually this was for my Sister in law’s Traverse. Was easy to install and has been well hidden until recently when it was needed to install a wheel chair lift. Works great!



by:

this bracket installed fine but doesnt seem to hold the connector very well. I often see the connector just hanging below the back of the car.

Etrailer Expert

Something I would suggest is to use electric tape to thicken up the 4 flat connector so that it does not slip out as easily.



by:

Plug end didn't fit snug with bracket. (Loose)
Was looking for a tighter fit for the plug end.

Etrailer Expert

It does not happen often however it can be that the bracket was made just a tad bigger or the harness plug is just a bit smaller which is making it loose. You can use electrical tape around the harness plug to fix the looseness in the bracket.



by:

I bought my entire package (tow hitch, wire harness and connector bracket from etrailer and could not be any more satisfied. Found 2 etrailer videos on line and every installation detail was shown. My only contribution was using edger string vice airline tubing to pull the harness up through the fenders. Great etrailer video for hitch installation as well. I was easily able to obtain my desired result.



by:

Easy to mount on the hitch and held the flat 4 connector very firmly.

James

Its been a year since I installed the mount and it is doing great.



by:

NICE bracket easy install

Excellent



by:

Bought this hitch along with the wiring harness and 4-pole mounting bracket. My mechanic installed and it's been working great! Hauling well anytime needed!!



by:

I was extremely happy to receive my hitch receiver only 3 days after ordering it! I installed it the day I got it and it fit perfectly. The included installation instructions were clear and precise. I had no issues whatsoever. The hitch is rock solid and looks great!
Thanks for the great service and product - this is the 3rd time I have purchased items from you and I have never been disappointed!
