I went to the opposite side of the grille to leave the tow hook unencumbered and maintain a symmetrical appearance. Played around with the positioning of the magnetic disc to make sure that the cap would open easily and not hit any painted surface. Once positioned, I marked the grill around the outside of the mag connector with a silver sharpie and used a Dremel and burr to create an opening within the silver marks. I used a sanding drum in the Dremel to sneak up on the “right” circumference to get the best fit for the mag connector. Works like a charm!
To add to your comments on the absence of an electrical connection until the pigtail is connected, my battery tender blinks red if the pigtail is not lined up properly. There seems to be a notch in the plastic that ensures that you line the pigtail and base up properly but I was playing around with it to see what would happen if you didn’t get it right. The magnet still grips the pigtail but there seems to be no electrical connection made until you rotate the pigtail so that it clicks into the right position. Very cool product- thanks again for posting!
yes the groove in the connector is there to make sure you get the proper polarity and the magnetic activation of the wire is there to make sure if there ever was somehow a connection made of the leads on the connector it wouldnt blow the fuse or worse yet cause a fire.
