Mounting Brackets

Tow bar mounting brackets are installed on your vehicle's frame to provide attachment points for your tow bar.

ROADMASTER manufactures more than a thousand vehicle-specific tow bar mounting brackets, in a variety of styles. (More than one bracket style may be offered for any particular vehicle; however, not every style is available for every vehicle). to identify the bracket that fits your vehicle, visit our interactive guide.

Or, for a complete list of all available brackets, download a copy of this month's Bracket Application Guide. Most of these vehicles are towable "as is" but some require aftermarket accessories. Before installing a tow bar bracket, make certain that your vehicle can be towed — refer to the owner's manual or the dealership.

I'm not a mechanic — can I put the bracket on myself? Our tow bar mounting brackets are designed for the easiest installation possible; however, mechanical skills are required. Many 'shade tree mechanics' can install their own brackets in a few hours. Complexity of installation varies by vehicle; accordingly, we recommend that you consider professional installation.

Mounting Brackets

Why are ROADMASTER mounting brackets rated #1?

  • Every bracket design is subjected to computer-simulated "Finite Elemental Analysis". ROADMASTER was the first towing products manufacturer to invest in the software and technology that Boeing, Lockheed Martin, GM and NASA use to ensure the integrity of their products. This allows ROADMASTER to offer the safest products possible for your family.
  • Every mounting bracket is custom-made to fit a specific vehicle or range of vehicles, and to attach at logical points along the frame or undercarriage, for maximum strength and a quick, easy installation (in lieu of specific mechanical experience with similar products, professional installation is recommended).
  • Every new bracket (not just a few) in the ROADMASTER XL, MX, AND 'EZ Twistlock' series (the brackets are described below) comes with detachable extensions which are easily removed when the vehicle isn't being towed — no unsightly steel hanging off the front of your car!
  • Every bracket is powder-coated. In this process, charged particles of pigment are baked into the surface of the bracket. The particles fuse to the metal and form a lustrous, uniform and extremely durable finish.
  • ROADMASTER is quick to market brackets for new vehicles, and has the widest selection — currently, more than 1,000 different mounting brackets (far more than any other company) — which fit more than 2,000 different makes and models.

  • They're virtually invisible — improved aesthetics
  • Computer-cut, all-steel components for exceptional strength
  • Easy to install — ROADMASTER brackets use existing attachment points on the vehicle's undercarriage — no welding!
  • Most install through the grille — no scraping brackets in dips or against curbs.

EZ Mounting Bracket for Towing
Clean, simple and intuitive!
Introducing the new EZ4 and EZ5 series


EZ4 and EZ5 brackets have a clean, uncluttered look, whether you're towing or driving.

A spring-loaded locking system allows the brackets to be recessed even farther than earlier models. Both locks 'click' as each of the front arms are rotated into position; pull a ring and twist the front arms 90 degrees to remove them.

Safety cable anchor tabs are located for convenience and ease of use. Since the tabs will accommodate a snap hook, the safety cables can be connected directly to the bracket, eliminating the short (“bracket”) safety cables entirely.

These brackets also have a convenient, built-in mounting point for the electrical socket.

For EZ5 brackets only — design enhancements eliminate the quick disconnect crossbar. EZ5 brackets are for motorhome-mounted tow bars only. (EZ5 brackets will not accommodate the Guardian, Stowaway, Nixtopper or the 4700 Tow Defender).

"With your easy-to-follow instructions — in color — I had no trouble at all installing your tow bar mounting bracket on my Nissan Versa. The installation was perfect.
