    What is a simple solution for hooking these up to your tow vehicle? Do they make a specific "clip" or something similar to attach to your bumper? Thanks.

    i have never seen a specific hook up for the truck side .i usually just make a short jumper with a clip on it to clip on the cable end and hook on the safety chain loop on the hitch .just make sure that it is long enough to be able to put the truck in a cramped turn or jack knife and not pull it out and not long enough to drag on the ground .some times if the cable is long enough you can pull it out of the switch and loop it through the safety chain loop pull it through the eyelet on the cable and just plug it back in .:)
