Simple, Tabless Design

Setting up these tabless base plates for use with your Demco tow bar is fast and easy. They easily bolt onto the ends of your tow bar. And because the tabs remain on your tow bar at all times instead of protruding from your vehicle, your car maintains a clean look when it's not being towed.


Easy Hookup and Disconnect

Demco Base Plate Tabless Hookup

Using the Demco Tabless base plates to attach and remove your tow bar couldn't be easier. With the base plate tabs attached to your tow bar arms, simply insert the tabs into the receivers on your vehicle and twist to lock them in place. Insert the included pull pins to add an extra layer of security, ensuring the tabs stay put. To remove each arm, simply tug the pull pin to disengage the lock, twist the tow bar arm, and pull the tab out of the bracket.


Receiver Covers

Keep dirt and debris out of the base plate receivers with the included covers. These high-density polyethylene covers easily snap into place over each pull point when your tow bar is not attached. Limiting internal corrosion makes it easier to slide the tabs in and out and helps to prevent seizing so that the tabs don't get stuck.


Tow Bar Adapters

Demco makes adapters for use with other tow bars so that you don't have to go through the added hassle and expense of replacing your tow bar when outfitting your new towed car with base plates.

by:

Unfortunately these base plates did not fit up to the front grill near as well as past ones I have purchased from you. A lot more cutting on my vehicle was required that should not have been needed. Also having to convert my towbar to less desirable Demco attachment was disappointing. I purchased Blue Ox for a reason and would have been much happier if Ox style pins were supplied to fit Demco sockets.


Comments
As long as the Blue Ox tow bar is a hitch mounted tow bar which means that it connects to the RV via sliding into the hitch receiver then it is compatible with the base plate and does not need an adapter.

Received race plates and wiring harness, both seemed exceptional quality. I have not installed yet and install next week, as per video looks like about to our job. Very satisfied thank you

2021 GMC Canyon

Product is well made, received in a short time frame.
Only down side, something that heavy really needs better packing. Box was torn on one corner so bad that parts could fall out. Shippers like to throw things evidently. All in all very pleased so far, now for the fun part, tearing the whole front off my brand new 2021 canyon Denali, wish me luck, lol!!!

Relatively easy to install, works great, less obtrusive than other brands. Instructions are clear, quality is good. Shown with knuckles removed. As you can see, I had to improvise to mount the coiled cord socket and breakaway switch.

Installation went well! The pictures in instructions are a bit hard to decipher! Using it in a few days. It is a replacement my last CR V 2003 was totalled in an accident had a Blue Ox before seems comparable!

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


I received the parts from etrailer much sooner than expected. They ship very fast.
Unfortunately some of the hardware was missing. The box arrived a little beat up. The bag the hardware came in was torn open. It seems that a few nuts and bolts were lost in transit. Since my shipment arrived on a Saturday, I did not wait until Monday to call for replacements. I went down to local HW store and bought what I needed. Fitment was excellent and installation went very smooth. I will continue to shop etrailer for all my towing needs.


Comments
Sorry about the missing hardware! Customer Service will reach out.

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


I recently completed a DIY installation of the Demco Tabless Base Plate on my 2021 Jeep Wrangler. Installation is fairly straightforward following the etrailer.com videos. A couple gotchas on the videos.

First, one of the videos suggests removing a sheet metal plate to provide easier access. While it does make for easier access during removal of the bumper, you should reinstall it BEFORE installing the base plate. If you install the baseplate first, there is insufficient clearance for the bolts that hold the sheet metal plate.

Second, the videos show reinstalling the plastic air dam after reinstalling the bumper. At least on my 2021 Wrangler there is NO way you could do that without seriously bending, and possibly breaking the plastic dam. Reattach the dam to the bumper BEFORE reattaching the bumper. Clearances for rebolting the bumper are sufficient. I did it without a lift (thank goodness for the Wrangler’s high ground clearance).

Bottom line is it’s a bit of a project but looks great.

I was very pleased with the service I received from Karl. The equipment was very well made. It seems the Demco baseplate and wiring kit are superior to the Blue Ox I’ve used in the past. Thanks for your service and products.

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


etrailer is special. They have all the information you need to have about the products you are looking for. I am a first time RV owner and was looking for a way to flat tow my Jeep Wrangler. etrailer made it so easy for me to understand what I should be doing and the best and safest way to accomplish it. But that was not all. I was having issues trying to find shipping options as I had a time crunch. I phoned them, customer service was awesome. They helped me place the order and get it to my home within my time requirements. I honestly recommend them and can only wish that other companies could treat customers the way they do here. Awesome! The videos on the product pages are the best!

As with all Demco products that I've purchased, this baseplate kit is extremely well engineered, expertly manufactured and work exactly as advertised. The installation instructions are easy to follow and understand. This is one worry free produce that will make our travels much more enjoyable.

The reinstall kit for the SMI stay and play duo braking system was exactly what I needed we removed it out of a 2012 Cadillac SRX and a RV shop will be installing it in a 2020 Jeep Wrangler I will send pics of the final installation later on this month ! Great product was delivered with all parts needed in three days and as usual great customer service !

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


It is well built, fit as expected. Easy to install. Warning to future buyers to install on crv, the hole you drill in bumper is difficult because it is high strenght steel regular drill bit do not work well. I managed to drill it with a step bit. The baseplate needs a small decal to say "this side upward"




by:

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


Superb, timely, same-day support from Demco when I ran into installation difficulties. The attach method is also very solid and has internal safety cables as stock, unlike some other baseplate manufacturers. (These are different from the safety cables you hook to your vehicle. These will hold the baseplate to the frame if the baseplate breaks away from the car for any reason so you don't lose the car.)

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates


It’s been a year and about 5,000 miles of our JLU playing follow the leader with our Tiffin motorhome. No issues, great finish, looking forward to another season of roughing it smoothly, Jeep in tow! Great instructions made for a great self-install.

I really like the way this base plate installed. Everything fit perfect and I like the look once it was completed. It's a snap to hook up with room for error. Our Jeep pulls like it's not even there.

Good product however instructions are not very clear as far as cutting the front grill. I had to cut a lot more then instructed. Also, missing are the two plugs to install when not in use.

  • Should Transmission of 2016 Chevy Colorado be in Neutral for Flat Towing
    I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2016 Chevrolet Colorado and on page 331 it indicates that you shift the transfer case to Neutral and then your transmission will be shifted to a few different positions before finally shifting to Park (this is for the Four-Wheel-Drive version).

  • Parts Needed For Flat-Towing 2015 GMC Canyon
    The Demco base plate kit # DM9519319 does include the pin that secures the tabs in the base plates. This is a tabless kit so the tabs remove from the base plates and stay on the tow bar side. The pins that connect the tabs to the tow bar are included with the tow bar and not the base plate. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Commander II # DM9511012. Between the two you'll have all the hardware to mate them together. You will need some other items when flat-towing you Canyon. The...
