Gerbing 12V Panel Mounted Port
Cheap stiff plastic
I bought this item last year for my heated gear so I could plug in easily and keep the rain out of the connector. Easy installation and if you tape the connector wires together it will hold without a problem. Where there is a problem is with the cap. When the weather got a bit cooler, 50 degrees, the plastic cap became stiff and after the third use it just broke off leaving the connector exposed to rain. It may be inexpensive easy to instal and over all a good idea but the cheapness of the plastic makes it a waste of money.

Great Product and Easy Install
This was an easy to install, under 15 minutes, option to hide the heated gear cable on my 2014 Electra Glide. Installed on my heat shield easily. I would suggest this for anyone that has a Harley Davidson touring bike and heated gear.

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.
