    This is advertised for the escort but it works for the Bel V940 detector. Simple installation. Run the wires along the headliner, down the door to the fuse box. Find a circuit/fuse to wire to for the hot wire and connect the other wire, the ground, to a metal contact point on the vehicle. Plug in the connection at the the detector and there you have it,a detector with no connection to your cigarette lighter/accessory plug and no cord hanging in the middle of the vehicle. This also allows the detector to turn off when the vehicle is off and on only when the vehicle is on. (this last part depends of course on what circuit you wire the detector to at the fuse box)

    I used this kit to mount my Escort 9500ix in my 2007 Mini Cooper S. Suction cupped it right above the rear view mirror and used this kit to hard wire it to a 12V line in the roof. Looks great and you can’t see the wiring. Much better than the curly cord haning down the windshield. And it also makes it barely visible to thieves or police.

    Great product exactly what I needed. Got rid of the coiled plug and hardwired my beltronics v940 to the left of my rear view mirror. Keeps the radar out of sight and professional looking. The hardwire comes with plenty of length and has a inline fuse. Using a add a circuit from autozone I tapped into a 7.5 acc fuse and put a 2 amp fuse(just in case) in the other slot of the add a circuit fuse block.
