I lost that little plastic thing that clamps the 7 pin connector cover on the receiver to keep the cable from being unplugged. I would like to order a new one but I don't know what it is called. Do you? If so please tell me.

TIA,

leon

It's called a multiclamp (or multi clamp) and is available from Littlehousecustoms.com or from etrailer.com.

I have occasionally seen one at HomeDepot.

Amazon calls it Camco 39103 Multi Clamp.

Thank you! I typed in all kinds of words in Google to no avail. Now it's on order.

Again,

Thanks,

leon

Leon,
In my humble opinion, Velcro is much easier to use thAn the clamp.

Leon.....

 

Just to increase your choices.....    I've used a small ball bungee cord for that purpose for years!

LOL that little "thing" was what I called a "little s8n 0f a b!#ch"..it was soo dang hard to tighten that after a few months it finally broke!!     Now we secure our plug into the socket with a zip-tie..way cheaper and EASIER to put on and you just snip them off w a small cutter-pliers or a knife. They are CHEAP ansd EASY to install Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh  and we carry a supply of various sizes of zip ties anyways..like..um, flashlites, you alwatys need one 

;-)

Note..be  sure to throw away the 'spent' zip ties, not leave them in the campsites.

Here are photos of the Velcro I use.

The first photo shows the Velcro attached to the cap of the 7-Pin Plug on our Ford Expedition. I used a self tapping screw, but drilled a pilot hole first. I topped it off with a small plastic washer and a "dab" of silicone adhesive, just to keep everything in place.

The second photo shows how it looks plugged in.

No moving parts. When not in use, the Velcro is wound up and sits on the cap of the plug.
