The bracket and hardware were good, however the strap holding the bracket onto the hitch tube would not open. I called for a replacement and spoke with Dru who said He would send a new one out. I was ready to install the two brackets and had to put the project on hold.

We recently sent you a new hitch bracket and were wondering if you had any feedback about the product for other shoppers? We look forward to hearing from you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 08/05/2022

I am having a problem with the install of the three Curt trailer components I purchased. I intentionally bought all of the same brand assuming that they would work together. The problem is that the Curt wiring harness (part# C55774) is too long and rigid. When the 7-pin connector is installed in the bracket that comes with it, it measure 5 inches until the black wire protective sleeve bends (to go under the hitch receiver frame).

The no-drill bracket (part# C57202) is supposed to attach the harness bracket to the hitch. But it is only 6.5" long, and the hitch tube is 3" wide. So with the bracket attached to the hitch, there is only 3.5" of space left to mount the harness bracket so that the screw holes line up.

I am disappointed that this is the case, especially as I called etrailer to check that the parts I was ordering would work together.

It looks like I will have to discard C57202 and drill two holes into the bottom of the hitch and mount the harness bracket directly. This is what I wanted to avoid - having to drill holes.


Comments
The 7-way bracket that comes with the wiring harness part # C55774 is designed to be installed with the wiring harness bracket hanging below the no drill bracket part # C57202. Since you are worried about the loose wiring I would recommend using some wire loom such as part # 459075-1 to protect your wiring and zip tie any slack with zip ties part # DW05726-25. I know this is not the option you wanted but I feel it is better than drilling into the hitch.

The bracket worked great. Just as advertised. I would not hesitate to order from etrailer again. They are my go to company for any of my towing needs. Keep up the great work!!!




by:

Use this bracket for a factory install. It is worth it

Still going strong!

by:

Nice mount. I added no slip tape to the hitch to help prevent mount from wearing thru the powder coat finish on the hitch. Nice, easy and clean setup.




by:

Bracket fell out of the box and band clamp was damaged in transit. Could not use it anyways as the tube was too large for it to reach. The bracket itself works fine for what it is though.




by:

Great product, works as expected, and easy to install thanks to video provided. Gave it 4 stars vs 5 as clamp provided for trailer mounting bracket was too short. This was after confirming size with representative over the phone. Short bracket and long bracket offer the same 4-inch strap to secure onto hitch. My trailer hitch measures 3.5 x 3.5 inches, ended up securing long plate with large tie strap. Also hardware supplied to fasten bracket should be stainless steel but that's an easy upgrade to complete.




by:

Went together without any problems, I pre-assembled the two brackets ( 7-Way Round Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket - Long - C57202 and the Pollak 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector - Vehicle End - PK12711U) then crawled under and put the clamp around the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2" that I bought along with this purchase and snapped in my existing 7 way and it was all set up. Very sturdy, though I was concerned with how stable it would when I purchased it. Turns out it is really solid, very happy with the setup. The hitch is a really beefy, so I'm quite pleased with it as well. I did enlist the help of a friend to get it up into place, which I think was the easiest path. If one had to, you could do it alone, but so much easier with a couple of extra hands. All in all, probably took 2 hours for the complete install.
I had a standard OEM hitch that I had used to attach a 9000 lbs pull capacity winch to pull up trees on my property, consequently, it stretched/hogged out my 5/8" pin hole, so every time I stopped or started with a trailer, it would slap around. Turns out the OEM hitch is rated for 7500 lbs, this Curt Hitch is rated at 16,000, so I should have no future problems. I'm happy with the setup. I expected that Curt would have engineered a better way to attach the 7 way when they designed the Hitch, I expected better from them.




by:

The Curt No-Drill Bracket worked absolutely perfect for my Drawtite hitch on my 2016 Subaru Outback. Super easy installation and the hose clamp worked a lot better and tighter than I expected it to. I would highly recommend this product if you are wanting to mount your wire harness to your hitch!




by:

Needed to replace my trailer connector as my oem was broken and also my oem hitch as well. Mike Lindsay made it happen for me to make sure i could get my connector and proper mount to work.
I applaud etrailers website but most importantly the staff that communicate and share INvaluable guidance to get a product chosen. Good people + good products = good business. Im happy! Thanks!




by:

Fit was perfect, I bet the bracket in 2 places to make it a very snug fit against the bumper, all parts fit perfect with the minor adjustments, sorry I can't do pictures, but I've put hitches and accessories on other vehicles, I like to make them like I knew what I was doing!




by:

Works great no drilling time saver.

Working Great.

I was surprised at how sturdy this installation is. etrailer sure helped me out along the way with this installation. Special thanks to Alex J for his help on several occasions to help me get the right hitch and accessories for my new 2021 Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy.




by:

Works as expected. Clamp screw slips a bit when starting to tighten. I would have opted for the shorter bracket. This one puts the connector even with hitch receiver.




by:

Worked well, easy to install. Only complaint is that there is no way to turn off test LED's when not trailering. Seems like it would have been simple enough for manufacturer to include on/off switch to deal with this.




by:

I have installed this on the bottom of the receiver hitch on our 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan with the 7-pin connector mounted on the bottom side for easier access.




by:

Ok product. Didn’t need it since since had a bracket already welded on it




by:

Perfect fit and relatively easy installation on 2014 Honda CRV




by:

I am ‘five star satisfied’ with the products and service I have received from etrailer.
Parts are high quality, unlike merchandise I I’ve purchased elsewhere.
The customer service is high quality, again unlike others I’ve dealt with. Specifically, I have dealt with Danielle twice and she was fantastic. Pleasant, courteous, knowledgeable and professional. etrailer is lucky to have her on their team.




by:

Metal thickness of the plate is for a ridge support of the trailer connector piece




by:

etrailer continues to impress me with their ability to communicate with their customers. Whether through instructional videos or order progression, they are and continue to be on top of their game.
Kudos!




by:

Exactly what was needed to connect my harness without drilling into the hitch.




by:

Easy install after viewing install vide o.




by:

Poor customer service.
You lost a cu
stomer.




by:

This is a nice bracket , but be advised if using with an F250 in combination with an EZ Connector install , the bracket might not be long enough to extend from the hitch . Perhaps this isn't a problem with smaller hitch bars , but the F250 is a sizable piece of metal that doesn't allow enough remaining length to install the EZ bracket correctly ( receiver end doesn't fit ) .

  • Suggestion for Mounting 7-Way Connector at Rear of 2005 Toyota Matrix XR
    Instead of attaching the bracket to the lower spoiler your best option would be to attach it to the body above and behind the spoiler. That will get it out of the way and also out of plainsight.

    The Tow Ready Long No-Drill mounting bracket 18136 has been discontinued but the Curt # C57202 that you referenced is essentially the same thing. It will allow you to install a mounting bracket for your vehicle-side connector without having to drill into your trailer hitch receiver.

You'll need to drill some holes on your existing hitch to mount this, but it's a universal bracket so as long as you've got a flat piece of frame or bumper on the rear of the truck, you'll be able to make this work. If you wanted a no-drill option, you...

  • How to Secure a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2012 Nissan Frontier
    Absolutely, in order to secure the 7-way trailer connector you have on your 2012 Nissan Frontier I recommend using a combination of the mounting bracket part # 18138 and the mounting bracket part # C57202. These two parts will allow you secure the trailer connector to the hitch on your vehicle without having to drill or use zip ties.

  • Which No-Drill Bracket to Install # 37185 on Class III Receiver for 2010 Ford F150
    You are correct, the Curt Class III receiver you mentioned, part # 13368 does not feature a mounting bracket welded to it. Over the years, we have found that the long bracket, part # C57202 works better with the thicker tubing used on a Class III hitch, while the short bracket you referred to works better on a Class I or II hitch. The long bracket will allow more clearance at the rear for the wiring to clear. The # 37185 includes the bracket that will allow the 7-way adapter to attach...

  • Where to Store the 4-Pole Connector on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma
    A four-pole connector is the connector that gets connected to the trailer wiring from the tow vehicle. It is called a 4-pole connector because the connector has 4 poles that carry 4 different tail light circuits. Most people will store the 4-pole connector at the rear of there vehicle near the hitch. Check out the picture I attached. What I would recommend you do is get a 4-pole bracket like our No-Drill Mount Bracket # C57202 and route the 4-pole through that. Using this bracket will...

    On 7-Way mounting bracket # 18138, the distance from the large center hole up to where the bracket bends is 1-3/16 inches. All of the similar brackets, see link to the right, are going to have the same or similar measurement but none as much as 2-1/2 inches. You may be able to modify (bend) long bracket # C57202 to achieve the distance you need.

  • Will Curt No-Drill Mount Bracket Mount On Round Tube Hitch
    The Curt No-Drill Mount Bracket, Long, # C57202, will not tighten down around a round tube hitch. The bracket has a lip on it that will snug up against a square hitch and allow the hose clamp to tighten and hold the bracket in place. The lip on the bracket will keep the hose clamp from being tightened enough around a round tube hitch to keep the bracket secure. The bracket for the round tube hitch would be the Draw-Tite 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box for Round Tube Hitches,...

  • 7-Way Mounting Bracket for a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe
    Due to the limited space available in the cut out area around the receiver on your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe the Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58000 will not be a fit. Your best option is to use bracket # C57202 around the hitch to the left of the receiver and use the bracket you have that is currently holding the 7-Way to attach the 7-Way in that location. That will be a much cleaner look and give you better ground clearance than your existing set up.

    It sounds like you are trying to make sure you can use the existing bracket mount on your hitch to mount the Curt T-Connector part # C55774 on your 2018 Nissan Titan with factory 7-way port. The wiring portion of the Curt T-Connector measures 15-3/4" long so you may want to measure from the factory 7-way port to the mounting bracket on your hitch to see if you have enough length. The other options would be Gooseneck wiring options and the shortest one available is 7 feet long which is way...

This will allow for the safest and easiest installation right to the trailer hitch crosstube without having to drill into anything.

For the round connector you mentioned you should be able to use the Curt T-Connector # C55774 instead.

    If you can't find a sturdy location beneath the bumper to attach a mounting bracket like the Tow Ready # 18144 that you referenced, you can simply use the trailer hitch as a mounting surface instead. To do this I recommend adding a no-drill bracket like the Long # C57202 or Short # 18140. This will allow you to attach the bracket you mentioned to the trailer hitch crosstube without having to drill or modify the hitch in any way. I have attached a short video demonstration so you can see...

  • Recommended No Drill Bracket Compatible with Hopkins 4-Way to 7-Way Trailer Wiring Adapter # 37185
    The bracket that comes with the Hopkins Adapter 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole # 37185 has the standard bracket hole locations to use with any of our no drill brackets. The 2-1/4 inches on center are standard on the no drill brackets, so you can use Curt # C57202 or # 18136 for a long no drill bracket. I've attached a photo of the Curt measurements to assist. Either of these will work well with a trailer hitch receiver whether it is a square crossbar or a round one like you mentioned.
