Video of Pin and Clip For Class III, IV and V Trailer Hitch Receiver
Videos are provided As a guide only. Refer To manufacturer
installation instructions And specs For complete information.
Today we're going to take a look at the Hidden Hitch Pin and Clip, number PC3. This pin and clip set works with the Class 3, 4, and 5 trailer hitch receivers. It fits a 2-inch receiver and a 2 -inch receiver. It has a 5/8-inch diameter pin. It is 5 1/8-inch in length from here to here as you can see that right there, and it does include this retainer clip that would just, this groove right here you would put that clip on like that. To give you a better idea of how that works we'll bring out our receiver hitch demonstrator, and one of our receiver covers.
You would just put that in like so, and then just slide that through, clip that off and you're good to go. That should just about do it for our Hidden Hitch Pin and Clip set, number PC3.

I installed the hitch plate, it was real easy. Took me longer find a wrench, than it did to install the hitch plate. I'm thrilled with the quality of the plate and how easy it was to deal. 32267
Quality Products & Quality Service This is my second time ordering from etrailer.com. I am so pleased with the selection, pricing, and customer service, that I will look here first before ordering products elsewhere. I have not yet tested the process of adding the Thule ski carrier to my Thule bike rack (our snow melted but is forecasted to return this week); however, I foresee no issues. I love the Thule rack and the ski carrier appears to be of similar quality. The hitch receiver cover was of even greater quality than expected, and a huge hit. As confirmed with etrailer.com customer service before ordering, the pin/clip were exactly what was needed to secure the cover. The order shipped out earlier than expected and because it was close to the holidays, the shipping speed was upgraded at no cost. All in all, a terrific experience with etrailer.com. I should close by saying that I do not regularly submit product/business reviews, but feel compelled to do this one because of the wonderful service and quality products. Happy holidays! J 4137
Great Video guides on how to install everything. Made installation a breeze. Super fast shipping was shipped day I ordered it! Got everything and well boxed everything in good condition. Great company to work with I usually dont leave feedback but these guys did everything right!. Thanks etrailer! 130454
Extremely poor design. Do NOT purchase this junk! Go to a hardware store and get a real one. This pin has no hole for a cotter pin. The weak spring clip is unreliable at best. I would not take a chance on a clip design like this. 108039
Was easy to in stall the carter pin and PC3 after installing. will order from etrailer again! 76919

Good quality 130637
What can I say? The pin fits in the hole, and the clip fits on the pin. Can't ask for much more than that! 140644
by: Joe G.04/30/2015
Does it's function, but did not seem secure. It could be tampered with easily. Replace it with a locking pin. 188892

To Whom it May Concern: I highly recommend etrailer.com com. I ordered a trailer hitch and bike rack by phone. The sales agent was professional, competent, helpful and friendly. The prices of the products are fair and the delivery was timely and arrived in good condition. It is rare to have a purchase experience of the level of high quality that I experienced with etrailer.com. I am highly recommending this company to others, based on my first experience with them, and I would not hesitate to purchase from them again. 4 stars out of 4. Thank you.

After installing this product to my hitch cover to keep it in place I drove 1 1/2 hours on the highway to visit family. When I got to my destination I checked my new hitch cover to make sure everything was ok and saw that the cotterpin had jostled itself loose and the pin itself almost fell out too. If this had happened I would have lost the hitch cover too. When I insatlled the cotterpin and the pin everything was tightened securley, I don't know how the cotterpin came loose since I was only driving on the highway. This is a very poor product and recommend not purchasing this item. 101936

Got the hitch in 2 days and installed it myself in about 15 minutes. Holes lined up perfectly. I slid a jack stand under each side to hold it up until I could get the bolts in. Everything went better than expected. Wow. Thanks for a great hitch that looks great! 52050
by: Patrick Cawley06/22/2015
The hitch was the correct one for the car, and the cable harness and receiver was correct also. Delivery was extremely fast: ordered on Wednesday, delivered on Friday. All necessary parts were included, including instructions for torquing down the bolts. I installed the hitch, 'without a hitch' on Saturday. It took about an hour, since I don't have any air tools. All in all, I am very satisfied, and would recommend your company. Thank you. 206208

Purchased Hidden Hitch Class 3, 2" hitch for my 2007 Honda CRV along with wiring harness and ball mount. Not the handiest person in the world but after installing this hitch, my handy-ego has been inflated. The videos on the website are spot on and are a huge resource for installation. Support during the sale and after were much appreciated. This is one of my top five e-commerce experiences. Well done etrailer.com! 94528
by: David M.07/05/2012
The women staff are very good at helping the customers and following through all the way to your door step. I have ordered and installed many hitches from E-trailer and I have not been sorry yet. I even had one wiring electronic kit fail and they were very fast gettiing me a new and better replacement at no cost to me. Super if you need a hitch better get hitched to etrailer.com! 46853
When you Google "customer service" etrailer has to be first in line! They care and they want it right! In addition, my new hitch sleeve insert/cover is the highest quality I have seen. Talk about rock solid! etrailer is the first place I am going to go for all of my trailer towing needs. Top of line people, outstanding products and very competitive pricing. I'm all in! 292388
You can not beat the price, the excellent people who follow up (George), and the service you will get from etrailer.com. Exceptional as I stated in my trailer hitch cover review. Love this company and the people. Please do not waste your time with Amazon or Ebay. They have the part, they will back up the part, and will provide an excellent service! 212456

This was the first time I bought trailer parts on line Etrailer.com had everything I needed, The service was ( most important) Quick . the only thing I made a mistake make sure you order all the parts you need at the same time. You will save on shipping big time. I will certainly deal with E- trailer in the future. David 261716
This is my second purchase from eTrailer.com. Their web site is easy to navigate and you are able to order what you need even if you don't know the first thing about trailer hitches. Their deliveries are always fast and accurate as well. Our next vehicle is just about ready for towing. Thanks eTrailer. 147309

Ordering and receiving these products online was one of the easiest purchases that I have ever made. The quality of the products exceeded my expectations, and they were delivered exactly when they told me that they would be. This is my second purchase, and I hope to make several more. 9709
This pin works well. Only downside is the retainer clip just goes over the pin. I would prefer the retainer clip goes through a hole in the middle of the pin but the way this one is made should work. Just seems more secure on the types of pins where the clip goes through the pin. 161650
by: Mike J10/01/2016
One of those gotta have things when you are towing. The reduced retainer spring clip groove diameter makes it much easier to install and remove the spring clip than those with a through hole. Show little/no wear after a couple of cross country trips and misc. local tows. 302212
Did not realize pin did not have hole for cotter pin to go through. Would not have purchased if I had known this, i don't trust this set up at all for a trailer. Might be good only to hold a hitch cover in place. Due to price of shipping and pin its not worth returning, 45631
by: Zach R.11/20/2011
This pin is very heavy duty. The only downside about it, and this is a personal preference and has nothing to do with the quality of the pin, was the key just slips into the groove and not through the pin. I pulled a trailer from California to Georgia without a hitch. 27195
by: Paul H.01/24/2012
The hitch cover leaves a gap between the receiver and the cover whic would allow dirt to enter and will rattle. I needed one more foam spacer to correct this problem, or the pin hole needs to be in a different location so the cover will be tight against the receiver. 30240
by: Tony W.02/03/2013
It's a pin, it fits, it works. My only concern is that the clip MIGHT fall off of pin if it was inadvertently bumped....for this reason it might be better if the pin had a hole through which one threaded the clip.....much harder to lose the clip that way..... 64890

I have not had the opportunity to use the products yet but wanted to say that my experience with etrailer.com has been excellent! Very responsive, expedited the shipping and followed through with e-mail. It is hard to get that kind of service today!! 11191
Found exactly what I was looking for at etrailer. I purchased an 18" hitch extender to aid in launching my skiff. I paid for 3 days shipping and it arrived in 3 days along with the accessories I ordered. All products very well made and did the job. 246446
by: Good spare02/24/2014
I got this pin, because I wanted a spare. I had read a blog that one person's pin sheared, and he was happy that he had a spare. I actually have a spare receiver, ball, and pin, but it doesn't hurt to have extras. I hope I never have to use it. 117466
by: Keith H03/13/2014
This is the 4th complete hitching system I have ordered from Etrailer and I am sure it will not be the last. They make it easy to find the product you are looking for, or they are good at directing you to the right parts for your application! 120589
by: Gerald S.06/12/2015
Great product. I was able to extend my Gators rear hitch by Eighteen inches allowing me to pull my trailer to clear the brush from a recent storm. Great service from etrailer. Thanks for your in finding a difficult to find products. 202945

Solid pin for heavy, 2" hitch. Buy if you don't have worries about theft. If used for an over-the-road application, get the locking variety. On our farm, we have a need for quick changes and with no theft, this pin is perfect! 58609
The pin is a good fit to the ball mount and receiver. The clip attaches it securely. I also bought the ball mount 2093 which is an excellent product sturdily made and an excellent fit to the 2" receiver on my 2009 Ford Ranger. 103474

The trailer hitch was easy to install and works great. The etrailer customer service reps really know their stuff. I would recommend etrailer to anyone interested in a trailer hitch and associated equipment. 242687
It will get the job done . I think a pin with a hole drilled thru the one end so the retaining pin gose thru the main pin would be a better unit but nothing wrong with one. This unit is a clip pin type. 257744
Thanks for your help w/ my new Curt trailer hitch. Fits perfect and was delv. w/o a "hitch" :O) I installed it in @ 25 mins. w/ no problem at all. Really ...I'll order from you folks again !! thanks a lot 16132
by: George S.08/17/2016
The clip can easily fall off this pin. I would be absolutely terrified to pull a trailer using this pin. Etrailer is the best and I highly recommend them. I am surprised they continue to sell this pin. 284707
by: Greg Ivan09/28/2016
The items came very quickly, before I even expected them. The quality looked good on all items. I have ordered from etrailer before, and will continue, as needed. Thanks etrailer for terrific service! 301258

Just recieved my order. Very fast delivery and well packaged. I will update one I have installed and used the items. I really enjoy the instructional videos. It makes life so much easier. 290775
by: Corey F08/25/2016
I prefer the hitch pins that have the groove instead of the hole. I find it is easier to slid the pin around the groove, rather than into the hole. this pin has worked very well for me. 287569
Not sure that there's much to say on this one. It's a pin, with a clip. It holds everything in place. I'm more used to the pins with the hole for the clip, but this seems pretty decent. 47222
by: Doug E05/30/2012
This product was a easy install. The product was shipped fast. Also I was able to follow the shipment as soon as it left etrailer. Awesome deal if ya ask me. I will use the78m again! 41999

I purchased this product for use with the Rutgers 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover and it seems to be working great! Fiance says together they are the best Xmas gift he received. 62030

Beefy and smooth, and the hitch pin detente holds the hitch pin securely. The price was good, so I bought 2 with my hitch mount just in case I ever lose one. - Chris S. 271296
