How to Install a Trailer Connector Socket on a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe


Today on this 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe we are going to be installing part number HM40975 wiring kit from Hopkins towing solutions. The hardware that came with the kit is larger than normal, so we actually are going to be holding our bracket up in position so we can pre-mark our holes with a smaller drill bit so we can run our self tapping screws into our bumper. Then we will drill out our holes. :27

Now that our holes are pre-drilled we are going to take our self tapping screws and screw our bracket in position. If you look up underneath your truck you will see you have a port for your towing harness here. You can just pull this cap off and it will plug directly into our connector here. To release this cap here you will see on the back there is a little lever to push down, and the cap comes right out. :56

Now before you install your plug in to the adapter, you want to make sure all the connection points are good and there is no corrosion or anything on it like that. We are going to take it, and run it through like this for now, then take it and match it up, male to female end and plug it into our connector. To install our adapter plug-in to our bracket, you will see these metal clamps on both sides. They will snap into position around your bracket. You will hear a click when they are in position. You can see we have to connector here for your trailer, and the four pole fro your trailer as well. This will complete the install for part number HM40975 on this 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe.
