Doesn't work. Tried installing this on two different bikes. The wire pulls out when the bike is moving. No tension on the wire. Just wont stay plugged in.

No more dangling wires.
I installed the panel mounted port on the mid-frame air deflectors on my Harley Ultra Classic so I wouldn't have the wires to plug my heated gear into hanging out around the seat area. This really cleaned things up and no more hunting for the wire or dangling wire hitting the saddlebag. Only wish I'd done this sooner. Great addition and very reasonable price.

Really cleans things up
I was so tired of seeing that cable hanging there for me heated jacket, and having to stuff it up under my seat or pull it out of there. I thought of the idea of making a permanent mount somehow, and then I saw this nifty little item from Gerbing. It's exactly what I had in my mind. I mounted it on the left plastic heat shield below the front of the seat. All I had to do was drill on hole and just keep making it a little bigger until the threaded portion would fit through. Start to finish takes about 10 minutes, only because I had to remove my seat to run the cable down thru to the back of this. Great solution.

Glad I bought it.
Hated to drill my bike but glad for the one handed plug-in. Has a clean look to it. Way better than a loose wire from under the seat.

This was easy to install, and I used it on my recent trip to Alaska with no problems even with several days of riding in the rain.

this product is well made.
If you use heated gear this makes a clean neat connection for power.

5 minutes to install! No more one handed attempts trying to mate my heated gear to the plug that was hanging out from under the seat.

N O: I chose this item because I want to eliminate all the wires that hang downDec 16, 2013
Ralph R: simplicity in installation for my heated gearNov 11, 2013
Richard J: quality product and need to hook up heated gearOct 20, 2013
James B: Like the nice clean look of the installation.Oct 15, 2013
William E: Great way to connect and disconnect heated apparel.Oct 12, 2013
Olli T: This is good to have if you are thinking to add a permanent, quick and easy Gerbing power outlet to your bike for example.Sep 24, 2013
John L asked:Really curious, will this product work with the coax connection of the Powerlet rapidFIRe Heated Glove Liner Kit? I'm not really finding an equivalent panel mount port by Powerlet.Nov 15, 2013
Daniel B:I've found the Powerlet coax connectors to be interchangeable with Gerbings connectors. Im using the Powerlet Rapidfire dual wireless temp controller with Gerbing's gear and the Gerbing battery connector harness that was already on the bike.
The coax connection appears to be a "standard" connector for Powerlet RapidFIRe, Gerbing, Venture, Warm & Safe, Tourmasters and possibly other brands. Nov 16, 2013
Jeff S:I mounted this on my left side and use the curly Q extension cable (looks like a telephone handset cord) and then plug that into the jacket. That gives me room to get off of the bike if I forget to unplug without causing any damage. It still keeps the cords manageable and neat when I'm riding.
Great product and keeps everything clean and very functional.Nov 16, 2013
A shopper asked:This panel-mounted port did not come with installation instructions. What is the purpose of the two rubber bushings? Do both of them need to be used? Where, exactly, do they get installed?Nov 30, 2013
Joe W:Although I still haven't installed mine yet, the instructions included with my panel mount assembly state that the nylon shoulder washer is used only when mounting the panel mount assembly to a metal panel, to insulate the shaft.Dec 2, 2013
A S:Joe is correct, the rubber insulators are used when mounted in metal that contacts the battery ground. If not used, the dual heat controller will not allow independent heating of gloves and jacket. Turn one side on and both the jacket and gloves will heat.Dec 29, 2013
John R:It has been some time since I installed this product. I do not remember if there were 2 rubber bushings. As shown in the photo, there is a "bushing" with the protective plug. If there is a second rubber bushing, put it on the inside.Dec 3, 2013
Lukas V.:I'm not entirely sure I understand exactly what you are asking, but I'll take a stab at it.
The Gerbing's port is a coax power port that runs straight from your battery. If you have the permanent mounted heat controller the cable runs from your battery to the control dial mounted somewhere on the bike, and then continues on with a female plug you would then plug your heated gear to. If you have multiple heated pieces, you would need the dual heat controller, at which point you would have two plugs to plug the gear into.
If you have the portable controller the cable runs directly from your battery and ends in a female coax plug (with a fuse box in the cable). You would then plug the portable heat controller in to, say, your jacket, and plug the other end into the bike. If you had a jacket and gloves, you would plug the gloves into the jacket, and the two cables from the jacket (jacket plus gloves) into a dual controller, and then from the controller, one cable would lead to the bike.
Whether you should go with permanent or portable is really a matter of preference. If you want to be able to take your heated gear on other bikes, the portable is helpful. If you don't care, then the permanent might be a little easier because you don't have to find a location to stash the portable controller (on your belt, in a pocket, etc).
I personally have the jacket liner and the gloves, along with portable dual controller and love them.Dec 7, 2011
Tiger9650:This panel mount port would be used to connect the portable heat controller. I recommend going with the wireless controller offered by First Gear or powerlet (same units). It will plug right into this port. It works well to get the coiled extension cord to go from the jacket controller to the port. This will give you more range of movement getting on and off bike without unplugging from the port.Mar 12, 2012
GSownerinDC:I can only speak to the permanent mount heat controller, but it works flawlessly. There is a simple plug connection that directs power from the controller knobs to the ports. If you wanted to put them in entirely separate places (like more than twelve inches from each other) you'd need some extension wiring, but otherwise it is plug and play.Mar 12, 2012
