The hose clamp is used to secure this long bracket to the trailer hitch. The bracket provides a sturdy place to attach the connector specific mounting bracket (Piece 2 of 2).


The only thing about the stuff I purchased from e-trailer that I did not like is the mounting brackets! I had to bend it 90 degrees to make it work. Please fix this issue. Unfortunately, some paint came off when bending it, so 12 months later it is starting to rust (see photo). The bracket that the plug sits in is sloppy so the plug usually falls out when I unplug or plug the trailer in. PLEASE FIX!

By the way, the trailer hitch and harness I purchased from e-trailer is AWESOME.


At 6 1/2 inches, the "long" mounting bracket is too long. The 3 1/2 "short" bracket is too short. I needed 5 1/2 length, so I used a hacksaw to cut the longer bracket and drilled new holes. Easier than I expected, about 15-20 minutes work. I've attached before photos showing the fine previous workmanship, along after photos of my remount.


The universal mounting bracket installed without a problem. My rounded hitch posed a slight problem for this model, though. I ended up placing a zip-tie to the backside of the bumper to try to keep it from falling down. Otherwise, it is still working great one year in even with deeper-than-average snow last winter.

Great idea, Adam! As Plato said, necessity is the mother of invention, and you definitely problem-solved on this one! Since your pictures show a 4-way and 7-way connector, you could also use the Curt Easy Mount Bracket for 2-inch hitches Item C58000. This slips over your Curt 2-inch receiver and does not require drilling, either. Thanks again for sharing!

Purchased this to support the receptacle in the 7-way ETBC7 kit for a 2010 Honda Odyssey. I was initially skeptical that it would grab securely onto a round hitch pipe (Hidden Hitch) but it does. In the picture, readers can see that I intentionally installed this 18136 bracket "upside down". There are two reasons: (1) Aftermarket hitch receivers ride fairly low on Odysseys and occasionally mine will scrape the road if there is a steep grade change. Not a big deal, but I did not want the ETBC7 receptacle to scrape the ground and be damaged. This way, the 18136 bracket might scrape, but the receptacle will be protected. (2) Mounting upside down also raises the ETBC7 about an inch, so that it is not hanging lower than the hitch receiver.

I also mounted the ETBC7's bracket "backwards". This sets the receptacle a tad inside the profile of the bumper, so that if a shopping cart or something hits the bumper it will be less likely to impact the receptacle.

Very pleased with this part, it's sturdier than it looks and gives the ETBC7 a solid platform when you can't or don't want to mount directly into the bumper of your vehicle.


The bracket assembly was packaged inside a larger box containing the trailer hitch that I ordered. The hitch box was damaged and the bracket was missing on the original delivery. I called etrailer customer service and they sent replacements immediately. I would strongly suggest packing the smaller items in a separate box to eliminate this issue. The bracket met all expectations and was thicker then expected. Customer Service, Ordering, delivery, and communication were outstanding from etrailer.


I needed one more 90 deg bend to make this bracket useful on my Palisade, to where the 5-pin plug was in a good position for repeated insertions/disconnects facing toward the rear of the vehicle just under the bumper.. I added the bend myself and then the bracket worked very well.


Great item - saved me from drilling directly into the hitch. The threaded clamp clicks out of the way to quickly feed the bulk of the wire through, then click it back into position and use a drill with socket attachment to tightly secure it. Rock solid install.


I probably should have brought the short bracket but i just bent it around the hict bar and it works great.


Yep, got the package yesterday, and it's perfect. It's exactly what I should have ordered in the first place.

Even with the long bracket, the space between the back of the plug and the hitch looks like it's gonna be a little tight, but I think I can make it work just fine.

I have everything I need now to get this completed, and to do it so it's a professional grade result. Now I just have to get out there and do it... when it warms up a bit more.

Re: the returned item.... I checked with USPS and it would have cost me more than the RMA label you provided to use UPS.
So I just used the label you sent me. UPS tracking indicates it arrived there last Friday.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help. You made getting this right a very simple and easy breezy deal.

A year out and working like a champ!

All of the products we ordered from fit perfectly and were easy to install. We have enjoyed trouble free service from the products for a year now and will purchase from etrailer again should the need arise.


Good product. Installed it on 08 Odyssey Reese class lll trailer hitch. Make sure to get the 6.5" bracket when installing larger connectors such as 7 way in order to fit the wiring harness. I'm also impressed with the customer service.. very knowable, helpful and friendly. Looking forward doing business here again soon. Thanks Etrailer


Works as advertised fit great


Great product. I modified it a little to fit the placement of the plug and the body of the vehicle.


Makes wiring look finished.

Still looks great

I bought the long bracket since I planned on adding a couple of bends to it. The bracket is something like 12 ga. steel so I had a metal shop make the bends. The picture shows how it mounted on the 2-1/2 in. square tube crossmember. I was very pleased with the result. Just make sure you have adequate clearance for the square tube when you make the bends if you mount it this way. Otherwise you'll have to throw it away and start over.


Product is well made. I like that it had the dimensions on your website. I checked my application and knew that the shorter version would be too short so I went with this one knowing it may be a little long. After I received it and checked it was a little too long so I made a bracket to clamp it on the tow bar. Everything worked out well and it very sturdy.


This mounting system did not work with my trailer hitch.


I have used you a few times and I am never disappointed. Your install videos are a blessing!


Worked well enough. I had to bend 90 degrees modifying the part for my hitch application due to the bumper alignment but it still did the job nicely.


Worked like a champ easy install one year later still a solid mounting bracket would buy again


This bracket was a good fit when clamped to the E98844 trailer hitch to hold the 7 way plug included in the ETBC7 install kit. Car is a 2015 Toyota Highlander.


Quality products, fast delivery and outstanding customer service.


Product was perfect fit to my wiring harness and with additional bracket I ordered , was able to mount on receiver without altering Explorer bumper...test light shows voltage..thanks again


Worked exactly how I needed and looks g reat.


All went well with the install, thanks.

I failed to tighten the bolts completely and they fell out. Zip ties to the rescue. Very satisfied with the purchase.
