This anti-rattle hitch pin dramatically reduces any movement or vibration of your ball mount in your hitch. Included lock ensures security for your hitch accessory. Designed for use on hollow-shank ball mounts and accessories. 1/2" Pin diameter.
The Silent Hitch Pin from Let's Go Aero takes the rattle and play out of the connection between your trailer hitch and your ball mount or hitch accessory. The unique design features a sturdy steel block with an attached spring that sits inside the shank of your hitch-mounted accessory. Note: This device can only be used with hollow-shank ball mounts and hitch accessories.
Place the block inside your ball mount or hitch accessory, and line up the hole in the block with the pin hole in your ball mount. Slide your ball mount into your hitch and insert the hitch pin. To activate the anti-rattle device, just twist the pin with the included wrench to tighten it down. Doing this will pull the accessory up against the wall of your hitch receiver, thus keeping the accessory from moving around inside your hitch. No more annoying clanking or vibrating.
The barrel-style lock goes on the end of the anti-rattle pin to provide security for your hitch-mounted accessories. Two round keys are included with the lock. A sturdy rubber dust cap comes attached to the barrel lock so that you can easily cover the lock cylinder, thus ensuring that no dirt or grime will get in to damage the lock.

Today, we'll be reviewing part number 63147. This is the anti-rattle trailer hitch receiver lock for 1-1/4-inch hitches from Let's Go Aero Gear Management Solutions. The trailer hitch receiver lock is used in place of your standard hitch pin and clip to prevent theft of your ball mount or hitch mount accessory. The anti-rattle pin is going to reduce the amount of play and vibration inside of your hitch connection. This does feature a barrel style lock that comes with two keys, has a weather-resistant rubber dust cap, so it's going to help keep out any dust or moisture from getting inside of the lock core, and the system is made from a sturdy steel construction with a nice chrome finish, so it is going to stand up well against rust and corrosion and provide a little bit of style as well. Show you real quick how this installs. Again, it is designed for 1-1/4-inch style receiver. You do want to make sure that you have a hollow shank when using this. It will not fit with a solid shank ball mount or accessory, so what you would do is you would place this system here inside of the shank of your accessory. Once you have that in there, you want to be sure that you line up the spring hole as well as the block hole with the pin hole on each side of the shank. Once you have that set, then you're ready to insert your accessory inside of your hitch.
You could take your anti-rattle bolt. It has threads inside of the block, so you just thread that into place. It does have a nice lock washer there, so once everything grabs, you're going to be set to go. The only left to do is to tighten it down with a wrench and install your lock on the other side of your hitch. Place it on there, one twist of the key. Then, you can close the dust cap, and you should be all set to go. Not only is this going to secure your accessory to your hitch and to your vehicle, it's also going to help eliminate any rattle or wobble that you may have inside of your hitch. The pin diameter is going to measure 1/2 inch.
The inside pin length, or the span, is going to give us a measurement of 2-3/8 inches, measuring from this point here to this point here. The overall length is going to give us a measurement of 5-1/4 inches, and that's with the lock installed. That's going to complete today's review of part number 63147. This is the anti-rattle trailer hitch receiver lock for 1-1/4-inch hitches from Let's Go Aero Gear Management Solutions. .

I bought this product because it had an overwhelming amount of great reviews. In fact, the other two options for my 2008 Honda Civic Si also had great reviews. Well, here's another: Just as expected, the install went smoothly. I managed to install the hitch all by myself. I had the rear of my car on jackstands and just propped the hitch up on my knees underneath the car, while attaching the supplied u-bolt to the center. That was the hardest part. The rest of the steps, which were clearly illustrated in the instructional video, were a breeze. I bought this product to mount a bike rack, and I haven't had any problems with it on. Along with an anti-rattle hitch pin, you can really feel how sturdy the product is as you try to wiggle it. Just make sure to torque the bolts to specification, and you should be able to rest easy. Great product! Also, keep up the good work with the tutorial videos, etrailer! 212129
Works as expected. Thanks to your customer service who got me to the right product to take care of my problem. Glad to now have a lock on my trailer hitch and also get rid of the noise when pulling my trailer. Picture shows 300+lbs man standing on the hitch, no more "shake, rattle or roll". 104381
This is a great lock. It fit the threads on my Blue Devil Hitch Mounted Bicycle Rack. Completely stops rattle and wobble of the hitch. Most important everything is very secure when using it. A piece with threads is included incase your carrier or trailer don't have threads. I don't need this piece but put it on the outside so I don't misplace it and not have it for future use. It also fills the space to make it harder to try to cut or remove the lock. This is a must have for securing your investment and keeping things from rattling and swaying. Etrailer.com had great communication, tracking and fast shipping. 145691
Works great, snugged up the tube in my bike rack to the receiver and stopped the swaying of the rack. Quick, easy installation. The only thing I would mention is that the instructions say that you need a 3/4" wrench but it actually requires a 5/8" wrench. Simple to install and it does exactly what it is designed to do. 88589

After I've had installed a trailer hitch on our family car, I decide to purchase a bike rack, which I bought the Allen bicycle rack, great rack by the way. The only problem was that it did rattle a lot every time we mounted it on the hitch, therefore I went back yo carry the bikes inside the car, I kept the bike Allen rack though. All this time I was searching for the best way to carry my bikes as well as utilize the bike rack, until I found this such a great, inexpensive system, "Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch" so easy to install, and what a results... Very happy and satisfied, the only thing left for me to say is, I wish I did find this etrailer.com sooner! Now I can mount my bikes and drive without seen the bike rack rattling, thanks to the anti rattle system I bought from etrailer.com 128547

Brilliant product, seems to be very silent so far. A couple of caveats about the install for me. My hitch is a Class 1 hitch installed by U-Haul. Based on the model number I expected it do be a draw-tite sport-frame hitch, but it's not. I mounted an Allen Premier Bike Rack S535 . I had to saw off approximately one centimeter from the end of the bike rack so I could push this pin through the hole designed for a 2" rack install. It appears that the thread would not go through the hole in the bike rack designed for a 1-1/4" rack. The modifications to the rack still allow me to use the previous hardware if required. 203854

this solved the problem to my wobbly bike rack. I had tried everything and nothing worked. This hitch receiver is fantastic. I think it's the spring that goes into the bike rack receiver is what makes the magic happen. Great product and I like how fast and easy it is to install. I just leave the spring part in my bike rack when I'm not using it making it already lined up for the next use. With a little tightening of the bolt and a turn of the key, presto, it's on within seconds and locked for anti-theft.... Excellent... 138368

I have dealt with etrailer a few times now, and as far as I'm concerned they are the go-to site on the net for trailer parts and accessories. Concerning this product, it is a solid piece that performs as stated. I could not utilize the anti-rattle feature because my tailstock is solid, but by removing the springplate I can use the pin and it works great. It easily threaded into my bike carrier, and even took some of the wobble out of it. The lock works good too. 192045
good quality, delivered on time and worth the money paid for it ..... 80047

As described, this locking hitch pin worked perfectly in securing my new carry-all to an existing hitch. It connects easily and the lock provides that added security level. The folks at etrailer were great in terms of helping me choose the proper pin and in the selection of the carry-all. Very friendly, responsive and knowledgeable. Thanks to all! 90644
Firstly etrailer is a amazing company. I think it is a family business which has the most incredible customer service I wish them every success. The product I bought was top quality indyalled in a jiffy abd I have no complaints. Very sturdy and well made my hich does not rattle abd it was good value for money. 139972
Nice product; shame on me - didn't read product info carefully. I do not have a hollow shank, so the clever product, of course didn't work as it was intended. However, I've improvised, and my improvisation will do the trick. Very speedy delivery, which I did appreciate. Nice company to do business with. 184684

I was a little skeptical about this purchase but the item was top quality when received. I installed it (easily with 1 wrench) last night for the first time and it works perfect, no more rattling! ;-) May buy another to fit the inside tube of my bike rack which folds down... 93553

The keys for the lock are not the ones shown in the picture. Instead they are the round holed lockes and are much more flimsy. Disappointed in the quality. Overall unit will function as intended, but will liked not last as long. Other than this, it is as advertised. 59581
This lock is well built, easy to use & install, and works well with any 1.25 hitch. I have purchased several items ( cargo carrier, bike carrier) and have been pleased with all. The service was excellent, as well. I will certainly do business with etrailer in the future. 63130

Since receiving this product I have yet to hear my trailer hitch rattle. I also purchased a beam clamp with a u-bolt from Home Depot to keep the up and down motion to a minimum as this hitch eliminates the side-to-side movement. 108758

Installation was a breeze. So far a great product. Seems to snug the bike rack right up to the side of the hitch to stop any wobble side to side. 87164
Prompt shipment and very helpful sales reps. Plus a great product equals a very happy customer like me! Thank very much. Armando 72562

Haven't used it yet, but did put the cargo trailer on the receiver with this lock pin and seemed very stable. 136723
