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.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Adam was extremely helpful with the parts I needed for my 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee.


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.


Base Plate fit perfectly making an easy installation


Thanks for the great tow setup! with the videos it was a great install for my wife and I. Went on just as it should and looks super! Most people do not even see it on the Jeep.
Hookup to the motor home is super easy, with the demco tow bar, and hookups. Would recommend to anyone looking to tow, look to Demco!

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The product itself is great. It fit fine and seems to be designed and built well.

Parts of the installation instructions are not correct for my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. The front fascia has a couple of additional connection points at the bottom and it also connects to the front fender "flares" differently than the instructions show. If you do not realize the differences, then you can definitely damage your front fascia.


Once we got thru the installation this Tow plate system has worked great. I like that it is fully hidden when not in use.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Received product extremely fast. Also they beat Amazon by 10%. I just sent a request before purchase and they handled the rest. Very good company.


What I expected. Very pleased with the product.

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates

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.


Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates

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

Great product! Mostly easy installation.


Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates

Really good tow bar. It has pulled my Jeep Cherokee for over 7,000 miles this year with no issues. Only problem was when I had to do a u-turn with minimal turning room and one of the storage pins on top of the tow bar got bent.


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 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.


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.

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

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates

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

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.


Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates

Was missing tab nuts had to make two trips to tractor supply to get new bolts and nuts.

For the base plate the manufacturer recommends using the hardware that comes with the base plate. I will have our customer service team reach out to you so the hardware can be sent out.

Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates

Awesome product but definitely not for home installation. However once installed it’s simple to attach and detach towed. We tow a Cherokee behind a 40’ class A. You can hardly tell it’s there. It takes me less than 15 minutes or less either way.


Review from a similar Tabless in Base Plates

I have purchased few items from etrailer and I was always very satisfied with your website, customer service and delivery on time.

  • Does 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Need Base Plate to be Flat Towed
    Your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee does require a base plate in order for you to flat tow it; the reason for this is because it gives you the most secure and stable connection to your motorhome and that the tow hooks are for recovery purposes and not intended to tow the vehicle. Most importantly this increases the safety of flat towing but it is also the best thing to do for your Jeep in terms of its chassis and suspension. I recommend checking out the "Recreational Towing" section of your owner's...

  • Can I Use a Roadmaster Tow Bar with Demco Base Plates on a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I have a solution for you, but Demco Base Plates are not directly compatible with Roadmaster tow bars, so you will need to use an adapter; this doesn't have as much to do with the pin size as it does the way the tow bar connects to the base plate.
