Easy-Pull Ring Handle Is Easy to Grip and Pull

Easy Pull

Standard 4-way flat plugs have a small surface area to grip when you are pulling them apart, forcing you to wriggle the plugs back and forth to loosen them. Some users even pull on the wires. This can lead to broken terminals or ripped wiring. With the Easy-Pull harness, the plug has a large grip ring designed to make disconnecting a snap. Simply slide your finger into the ring and pull the plug away from the opposite plug to disconnect.

Easy Pull Rings

The Easy-Pull is also available as a vehicle-end 4-way flat plug. Combine the Easy-Pull trailer-end plug and vehicle-end plug for the easiest possible disconnection. With ring handles on both connectors, disconnecting is as simple as gripping the rings and pulling straight apart. No wriggling, no broken terminals, and no damaged wires.

This is a great solution to a 4 wire plug for my trailer! Regular 4 wire plugs tend to fatigue over time. This rugged design is sure to last many years


Not as durable as I thought it would be. I like the open hole design for easy plugging and removing, but the connection pins to the assembly themselves are subpar. I have a folding tongue and secured this onto a holder, when closing the arm, it folded the pins downward. After realizing the interference, i moved it to an upward position to allow for clearance but the damage was done. The pins bent and are now loose. Had to replace the entire harness.


So much easier to use with the large pull handle. Great for use when your Trucks harness is in a tough to reach place

Still a great harness. Very durable

Exactly what I wanted. Excellent quality. Couldn’t find it anywhere. Etrailer had it !

Still working as new.

Heavy Duty Trailer plug for my boat trailer! Fast shipping!


Heavy duty. Finger hole make it more likely it will not get pulled out by the cable. Works good on our smaller trailers.


Good quality product.


This connector is much more robust than standard flat pigtails. I particularly like the sheathed cable rather than the exposed flat four-wire.

Working perfectly. The hole pull works far better than yanking on the wire leads when disconnecting

Nice quality, great solid jacket around the wires. Makes unplugging very easy!!!


Works perfectly111

Prefect, so much better than stock plug.
Ted S - 07/17/2022


This is made from good materials and should last me many years of service on my utility trailer. The life-span will depend on how much winter trailering I do as the road salt used up here in Ontario, gets into everything.


Nice solid, molded grab handle. I’m switching all my 4 wire trailers over to these harness. Well made

Have not had one issue in the year since I installed them. A+. Worth the extra cost
Ray C - 07/16/2021


very heavy duty trailer pigtail cable. This is what I need to prevent kinks and breaks in the wiring harness. Nothing like hooking up trailer lights that dont work because the wiring is easily damaged.


Great design and rugged materials.


Great Company Quality Product Fast Shipping will do business with them again


The wiring was just what I needed and the shipping was quick. I will definitely be using etrailer more in the future.


as expected. I put one of these on my last boat trailer and will install on any trailer I own from now on. Very durable, easy to plug in/unplug.


Well made unit that makes it easier to connect and remove from tow vehicle. Lead is 48" long but would be better if a little longer, maybe 60 or 72" to facilitate connection to tow vehicles with extended hitches or trailers with long tongues. Would be fantastic if the monitor/test lights were included on connector.


Perfect maybe a little short


Solidly made, and easy to use the the ring handle.


Solid construction and a long enough lead to easily connect and reach the trailer hookup.


This is a great product, solid and great quality. Three things that would help the consumer. First thing would be to add solder-less connectors. Next thing would be to have about 6-8” of exposed wire to work with when coupling. And last thing would be to furnish a dust cover for the plug end.

I couldn’t be any more happy. It has held up to many fishing trips on my boat trailer, great!
Ted - 09/14/2020


I have purchased these ones before, for our fleet of trailers. Great quality cable and easy to plug in/out of vehicle. I stock a couple of these for repairs.


A real upgrade to typical 4 wire trailer connectors. If you are doing any trailer wiring I strongly recommend this replacement.

Well made with an integrated cover like a outdoor extension cable the ring makes it easy to hold when inserting or removing the connection from your vehicle.

It would be perfect if it came with the very fine cover that Hopkins includes with most other variations of the "ring" style connector.


Finger pull feels good and will make it much easier to plug and unplug. The jacketed wire is a bonus to keep everything tidy.

  • Can 5-Way Connector on Shorelandr Boat Trailer be Converted to 4-Way Connector
    You definitely can convert the 5-Way connector on your Shorelandr boat trailer to a 4-Way flat connector. To do this you'll just need to cut off the 5-Way connector and splice on a 4-Way. For that I recommend the Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness # HM38134 which has the following wiring configuration: White: ground wire Yellow: left turn/brake light Green: right turn/brake light Brown: tail lights It is worth noting that you can actually just plug a 5-Way into the 4-Way on a tow vehicle...

  • Connecting Trailer Harness to Trailer Wiring with Different Colors
    It sounds like the new 4-way trailer connector uses standard trailer wire coloring, like part # HM38134: green for right turn and brake, yellow for right turn and brake, brown for running light, and the white wire gets grounded to the trailer frame. That's the easy part. The hard part is finding what the trailer's colors are. Unfortunately, there's no definite way to do this other than getting a 12 volt battery, grounding the ground wire (probably the white) to the battery's negative...

  • Trouble With Trailer Lights Flashing Off and On When 4-Way Connected
    It sounds like the problem is in the wiring on the 4-flat connection of the trailer. I recommend the Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness # HM38134 to replace the 4-way plug on your trailer. I'm guessing that there many be a connection issue at the 4-way or the ground wire inside the harness broke and this is what is causing your lights to flash. That is the last point and explains why your lights all work when you ran a dedicated ground wire to the battery. You can confirm that it is...

  • 4-Way Trailer Wiring Kit Recommendation for 2009 Mazda MX-5
    A 6-pole flat connector is not a common style of trailer wiring connector so we do not have any adapters to go from a 4-way to a 6-pole flat. Best option would be to install the Hopkins trailer wiring kit part # HM11141824 and then remove the 6 way and install a 4-way in it's place with the part # HM38134.

  • Matching 4-Way Recommendation to Fit the Hopkins # HM38134

  • Installing a 4-Way on a Trailer that has a Green, a Yellow, a White, and 2 Brown Wires
    It sounds like you have the typical wire colors for your trailer (see attached picture). If that is the case then you will need to do exactly what you are talking about to install a 4-Way connector on your trailer like part # HM38134. The Brown wire should be the running lights which will need to be spliced together and then connected to the Brown wire on the 4-Way harness. You can verify that you are connecting everything correctly by verifying that the functions on the Tekonsha T-One...

    To splice in a trailer end connector such as the 4-Pole Trailer End Connector # 18004 or Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Connector - Trailer End # HM38134 you will need to match the connector to your wires by function. On these connectors, the brown wire is the tail lights, the green is right turn/brake light, the yellow is left turn/brake light and the white is ground and your connector will likely be the same. Since your damaged plug does not have these you can either...

  • Adapter for a 4-Way Flat to 6-Way Square Trailer Connector
    The only 4-flat to 6-square connector we carry is part # 30104. This sounds like what you're looking for but I'm not sure exactly if this is the same connector on your trailer. If you can send me a picture I can try to verify that. If this doesn't work you can add a 4-way to the trailer instead of using an adapter. You don't have to cut off the existing 6-way but instead splice into the existing wires and connect a 4-way in addition to the 6-way. Part # HM38134 will work.

  • Right Turn Signal Does Not Work on Trailer
    There's a few options here, either a ground or bad wire, like you said, or the 4-way on your trailer has corroded. So start easy and check your trailer connector for corrosion, which can be green or white in color. A build-up of corrosion can interfere with the signals getting through the connectors so if it is present you are going to need to replace the trailer connector with a new 4-way, either # HM48133 or # HM38134. Then you can check and see if you have a damaged wire (though I doubt...

  • Availability of 7-Way Round to 4-Way Flat Adapter for a Light Plant Trailer
    If you have a 4-Way Flat connector on your light plant then the easiest way to connect it to the 7-Way on your tow vehicle would be with the Hopkins Adapter # 47345. We also have the Hopkins Adapter # 30955 which you could permanently install on your tow vehicle by simply disconnecting the US Car Connector from your current 7-Way and plugging it into the back of this adapter. This would give you both a 4-Way Flat and a 7-Way Blade connector so that you don't have to keep track of an adapter. If...

    The Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Connector # HM38134 you referenced has 18 gauge wires for the brown (taillight), green (right turn and brake), and yellow (left turn and brake) wires. The white (ground) is a 16 gauge wire. Typically 18 or 16 gauge wire is sufficient to run trailer lights, especially when you use LEDs since they draw much less power than incandescent bulbs.

  • Can 4-Way Flat be Used as Tow Bar Lighting Connector
    Sounds like you'd just need to wire in the part # HM38134 to the wiring on your vehicle in place of the 4-way round so that your 4-way wiring can attach directly to it. If this was not what you are looking for let me know more info on what you have so that I can check further. I'd need to know the connector at the rear of your tow vehicle, the connector at the front of your towed vehicle, and what connectors are present on your coiled adapter.

  • Can the Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness Be Installed On Trailer With Two Brown Wires (Wishbone)
    The Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull Harness part # HM38134 can indeed be installed on a trailer with a wishbone wiring harness. In order to do this you would simply combine the like circuits together, therefore you would combine the two brown wires for the running light circuit as well as the two white wires for the ground circuit as well if present. The only thing you'd really need is some butt connectors, part # DW05744-10.

  • Trailer Lights Come on With 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Off With Curt Wiring Harness
    There are a myriad of reasons why your trailer lights would be on while your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe's lights are off, and generally the issue is on the trailer side. So the first thing to do is take a look at your trailer's 4-way and check it for corrosion.

  • How To Replace 4-Way Trailer Connector on Karavan 5x8 Utility Trailer
    If the trailer has a 4-way flat connector then that means there are only three lighting circuits, left stop/turn, right stop/turn, and running lights. The left stop/turn is usually a yellow wire, the right stop/turn is usually green, and the running lights are usually brown. If you have multiples of any color at the connector then that just means the wires weren't combined mid-way and you would just need to do so at the connector.
