Don't change your seven "blade" or "pin" socket, simply add another 4 pin with it's own L-bracket mount dedicated to the magnetic lights. Use these (below)to connect the wires. Also add a thin piece of cloth to the bottom of the magnetic mount to protect vehicle paint (except for the Saturn Vue which has non metal body panels). Wasn't thinking when I bought the mag mount lights.

Thanks SilhouettePenny, that's looking like the solution I need.

And, JLeising, thanks for the Amazon links, but that leaves me with just a 4 pin connector, I was hoping to transform the 7 blade outlet to a 7 blade with a 4 pin to be able to plug in my tow dolly, with electric brakes, and the magnetic lights into the same outlet.

Thanks again, everyone.

Perhaps I'm missing something here? My thoughts are--why does the dolly need to be plugged in for lights when the car on the dolly is plugged in and lite up?

I have searched on every combiniation of 7 blade, 4 pin phrases I could think of on Amazon and the Google and never got anything like this...

(Do you secretly work for Amazon )

Thanks this will be perfect!

What I'm attempting to do is to have the dolly plugged in for the lights and the electric brakes, which will use my 7 blade plug on the back of the MH. I would also like to have additional lighting on the back of the car (magnetic tow lights) for additional safety.

MH only has the 7 blade receptacle and I need a way to add the 4 pin receptacle for the magnetic lights.

JLeising's link gives me exactly what I have been looking for.

Looking at this set of lights right now.

No offence to you , but those connectors are the WORST!!! thing to use when making connections on wires exposed to the outside weather. Splice , solder , cover with heat shrink protector only way to go.

My Kar Kaddy has a 7 pin for the dolly lights and another 4 pin for the additional lights.
