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
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
I am very happy with the way my order was handled and the complete updates as to the status of the order by email. These pin locks are an improvement over the older pin locks. I've had this hitch for a good while and the older device that locked the pin from coming out was not fool proof. The lock on one pin did not lock when I pushed the little part in therefore it fell off somewhere. It was a miracle that the pin did not come completely out of the hitch while pulling a trailer. It did come partially out when I discovered it. That could have been a very serious situation on the interstate. The lock on this new one has to have a key to take it off the pin and also has to lock on the pin before the key can be removed. A GREAT IMPROVEMENT!!! 253978

Just what I needed for an adjustable aluminum hitch. Was delivered when expected, and works as advertised. 83240
by: AM3492 & AM341001/18/2015
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: Joey N12/05/2015
I like how they both use the same key and they are locked if the key can be pulled out! 233186
Great product, needs to have options for the 2" receivers or the 3". I will make a spacer to prevent the lock from shifting side to side. 262579
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
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 package was delivered earlier than scheduled and the service has been outstanding! I cannot wait to give this to my Dad for Christmas! 166790

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 etrailer.com - 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
After having to cut the existing pins off because I could not unlock them, these new pins work well. Possibly my fault because I left the hitch installed in all kinds of weather. Needless to say, now when I am done towing the hitch is removed and the locks lubricated. 296330

The customer service was excellent in fact I had originally ordered the wrong part. The shipping was fast and all received in great condition. The parts fit very well and I like the end result All in all I will utilize them again when need. 121446
Appear to be of high craftsmen ship. I am concerned with the lock for the sliding section as it looks weak and could probably be knocked free with a big hammer. I will say the hitch is very heavy and the main body is nothing short of pure beef. 254034
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
Worked well for the summer months, but lock froze up over the winter. Tried soaking one with pb blaster, and the other with wd40, but neither worked. It's quite embarrassing to have to borrow an angle grinder so you can swap your hitch. 258920
Received the product quickly, it was as advertised and will let me secure my $200 hitch and ball assembly to my truck. I've ordered from eTrailer before and will continue to do so as they have provided top notch service to date! 31858

Just what i needed! 36523
My old lock set was the chrome plated model and after one winter in MN it was rusty and not working so good. This stainless steel model looks well built and should last a long time even in the salt and snow in MN. 228021

I will like to thank all of you for the time taken for service and and answering all my questions. Sincerely Marcos. L. Ps. All previous items were to my satisfaction Thank you 222147
If your going to spend the money on a good receiver, don't forget to purchase good locks, otherwise someone will want it and it will be gone. These do the trick for sure! 137638

Received the product and it was just as advertised. Excellent service and very quick delivery. Etrailer is a great place to purchase trailer towing products. 178413
After my first set became seized into the aluminum rapid hitch, I had to cut and beat out the old pins. I now cover them with never seize before using them. 100125
by: Steve h.04/26/2015
they go on a lot easier the other ones I've had. I don't have to use the key to put them on like my old ones. They fit great. There is no slop on them. 188307
by: Brad B07/08/2016
This was EXACTLY what I needed. They work perfectly for my trailer hitch. It's been a nightmare trying to find locks long enough for my hitch. 269416
We bought these along with the receiver to lock it. The receiver is so nice we figured it's best to lock it up. So far, everything is great! 136622
by: Neal F.08/19/2016
Nice to have a matching set keyed alike. One is going to be used on my Ram with a 2.5" hitch and the other on my wifes Jeep with a 2" hitch. 285509
by: Shannon B08/23/2016
I lost the keys to my rapid hitch pins and had to order new ones. I receive them today they look and work great. Thank you ETrailer.com 286951
Excellent product. Can be used with other adjustable hitches as well. Great to have the two locks keyed alike, and have extra keys. 63944
THIS PRODUCT IS PERFECT FOR MY TOW HITCH ,NO MORE PROBLEM'S WITH THEFT .AND IT WORK'S GREAT. THANK YOU . 67388
by: Ray M.03/18/2015
I used these locks with my Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount ... worked perfectly !!! I am very happy with this purchase. 179527
More expensive than I'd wish to pay for pins but still a lot cheaper than buying another Rapid Adjustable Hitch if it gets stolen. 153793
by: Arvon P.06/11/2016
As always, etrailer.com does as they promise. I get exactly what I ordered, within the time frame stated. Keep up the good work 260287
These pins work well with the hitch I purchased. And they offer security that should prevent the hitch from getting stolen. 106805
These pins work great with the 3410 ball mount. I wish they were USA made but China seems to be all you can get now days 39134
Be careful cutting the packaging ties. I accidently nipped the rubber weather cover. Cut the ties from the back side. 242408
by: Mark H.01/23/2012
etrailer had the best price on these. If you're going to spend $180 + on a hitch they are probably a good investment. 30168
by: Mike L.08/01/2014
Looks great and durable, its nice that the keys are the same on both. Thanks etrailer.com for the great service!!!! 143965
by: Al Coholic11/22/2015
Great looking pins and stainless too! Should keep the $200 dollar hitch locked to my truck where it should be 232407
These locking pins worked perfectly out of the package. locks were very smooth. Very happy with them 67358

I have been using these locks on my trailer hitch for years. The best on the market. 55401
Perfect fit for the Rapid Hitch System connected to a new GMC 2 1/2 inch receiver. 184497
Just installed them. Look and feel really good. Seems to be great quality so far. 237119
I love how these locks will not allow you to remove the key, unless they are on. 170540
