Video Transcript for Andersen Locks AM3492 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number AM3492. This Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Locks set for 2-inch and 2 1/2-inch trailer hitches. The anti-theft keyed locks are going to keep your adjustable ball mounts securely attached to your towed vehicle. This locking set is designed to work with the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount systems. Now, the hitch receiver lock is going to be designed for 2-inch by 2-inch, oversized 2-inch by 2-inch and 2 1/2-inch by 2 1/2-inch trailer hitches. These are made from a really nice stainless steel construction so it's going to office superior strength and durability. It's also going to feature a nice rust-proof design.

The stainless steel construction is highly resistant to rust and corrosion so these are going to last for many years. The shorter one is going to be the one that's going to secure our ball mount or our accessories to our hitch. Then this one, the longer one is going to be the adjustment locking pin for the Rapid Hitch units. Now they're going to offer a capacity of 10,000 pounds. You're also going to get two keys. These are keyed alike so they'll work on either lock.

The lock is going to be this portion here with the rubber dust cap on there. That adds a nice feature to it because it's going to help keep out any dust or moisture from gaining access to the inside of our lock. You're going to have one of those located on each pin. I'll go over a few dimensions real quick. The adjustment locking pin, it's going to give us a diameter of 5/8 of an inch. The inside width measuring from this point here to this point here, that's going to give us a measurement of 4 3/8 of an inch.

Then the overall length measuring from end to end is going to give us a measurement of 7 7/8 of an inch. Now taking a look at the hitch receiver lock, again that's going to give us a diameter of 5/8 of an inch with an inside width from this portion here to this portion here of about 3 1/2 inches. Then the overall length is going to measure from end to end at about 7 1/8 of an inch. Really easy system to use. To take lock off of one end of the pin all you have to do is remove the dust cap, place your key on the inside there and give it about a quarter of a turn. That's going to pop the lock right off.

I went ahead and pulled the Rapid Hitch mall mount from our inventory. That way I can show you how this unit operates. First thing that we need to do is we need to go ahead and secure this inside of our hitch. Again, for that one we're going to want to use the hitch receiver lock. It's simply going to go through there and then all we have to do is place that lock on the other side. It's going to click on in place which is going to release the key from the lock and then just reinstall that dust cap. That's going to be secured inside the hitch. It's not going to be able to be removed unless you unlock the lock with the included keys. Now, this longer one is going to be designed as the adjustment locking pin. We'll go ahead and take that lock off one end just like we did with the other pin. We'll find the setting that we want to set our ball mount at. Once we have that we can place that through. Place the lock on the other end and again it's going to release the key, letting us know it's locked into place and then our hitch balls are going to be securely locked in the position that we want them. That's going to do it for today's review of part number AM3492. This is the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Locks for 2-inch and 2 1/2-inch hitches. .

I didn't order these pins for exactly what they were intended but they turned out to be exactly what I needed. I have a new truck with a factory installed class IV receiver. Besides the approx. 3" tube O.D.,the receiver also has reinforcement gussets on either side (.25" thick each) making the pin length required longer than a standard unit. I needed more than 3.5" of barrel with another half inch or so for the locking head to fit. Either one of these pins will do the trick. I will use the shorter one mainly and the longer one as backup. Great service, fast shipment & delivery, totally satisfied. Will recommend eTrailer and this product without hesitation. 91666


These pins are great. Working well in my 2.5 in. receiver. They are very good quality, well built, and the finish is holding up very well. No problems or complaints.

Just what I needed for an adjustable aluminum hitch. Was delivered when expected, and works as advertised. 83240


Still working great. It helps to occasionally spray a little WD40 on it.

Great products! Well made, functional, and look great on my 2002 Explorer XLT. If you purchase the AM3410, but the AM3492 lock set. 170338

by: L. Nelson05/10/2015

Great product - stainless steel so its strong and wont corrode. The lock mechanism is easy to lock and unlock. The one that goes to the rapid hitch ball height fits perfectly, but the one that goes to the receiver is way too long - I guess because I have a 2" receiver and it fits the larger receivers as well. 191673

by: Roman09/10/2015

Great locking pins - high quality for sure. The perfect companion to your Andersen hitch. My only concern is how long the rubber covers will last but I have high hopes! I'm glad they upgraded the key system from the old circular barrel style. These new ones would be tough (nearly impossible?) to pick. 224878

I am so impressed with the products I received from this company. The quality of both products is far beyond anything I have seen and so much better than I expected.

The hitch ball combo was easy to install and locking pins went in easy as well and I have the comfort knowing that my trailers won't be as susceptible to theft now. Plus the ease I have now with switching balls and trailer is a no hassle endeavor. Pins keyed alike is great. Thanks etrailer 114506

I purchased the 6" Rapid Hitch from a local dealer who did not have the lock set. Did a quick google search for the locks - found - Extremely happy with the product, service and quick response. Great company to deal with and I will definitely purchase from them in the future! 180978

by: Brian07/13/2015

Exactly what I wanted. The lock pin base and cores are a little longer than I expected making the pin stick out a good 1"+ on either side but not a big deal. Little bit of play in the lock cores despite rubber seal. Regardless I'm very happy. 211273

I ordered a double drop hitch. Could not believe the weight of it, but when I uncrated it I realized the 2” core is actually a solid piece of 2x2 not square tubing. I’m impressed. 207322

Do you have a question about this Lock?

  • Does The Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount # C45900 Include Hitch Balls
  • The item you selected, Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount # C45900 includes the mount and the hitch balls. Included is a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch hitch ball unit. The Curt # C45900 will fit 2 inch receivers and can provide up to a 5-1/4 inch rise or 6 inch drop. Also included is a pin and clip. For added security, I would recommend using the Rapid Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set, # AM3492. However the capacity of the locks is 10,000 lbs, so you would be limited to 10,000 lbs...

  • What Locking Trailer Hitch Pin Set Will Fit the CURT Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount
  • What you can use is the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set, # AM3492. The shorter lock would replace the hitch pin and the longer one would fit in place of one of the pins that holds the ball. Please note that the capacity of the locks is 10,000 pounds so you would be limited to towing that much weight. I have included a link to a video review of these locks for you.

  • Will There be Rattle When Using Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount Kit # AM3460
  • As you note, the primary value of this aluminum ball mount # AM3460 from Andersen is the range of adjust-ability which enables it to work with a variety of trailer and vehicle heights, and both 2-inch and 2-5/16-inch coupler sizes. If you typically tow more than one trailer on a regular basis this convenience may outweigh any minor rattle in this system. It is also light in weight at 19-lbs compared to steel ball mounts.

  • Thanks for your recent purchase!! What I recommend is the trailer hitch lock # AM3492. It is 4-1/4 inches long and will work with the aluminum ball mount kit # AM3410. The hitch lock # AM3492 will also include a hitch pin lock and both keys are keyed alike. The Master Lock hitch lock set # 1481DAT you referenced will not work with the aluminum ball mount kit # AM3410 because it's too short. It's only 2-3/4 inches in length. I included a couple video reviews too.

  • Replacement Key for Anderson Rapid Hitch Ball Mount

Then you can use part # AM3492 to replace both the hitch and ball pins/locks. Please refer to the linked video for more information on the lock set.
