Video Transcript for DeadBolt Locks RC6 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number RC6. This is the Deadbolt Trailer Coupler Lock. It's going to feature a flush locking design as well as a 1/4 inch pin diameter. Now this is a steel construction. On this end is going to feature a nice chrome plating that it's going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion. On this end it's going to be a steel construction but it's going to have that nice rubber coating over it.

That's going to be an all weathered grip. It's going to let you get a nice secure hold on the lock itself. Now this side over here has a textured surface that way you can get a nice grip on it also. The gripping is nice because it's going to allow you to get a nice secure hold even in extreme or harsh environments. Now in this end it's going to feature a nice covered key slot. This is just a dust cap that goes over the lock core.

It's going to help protect it from any type of rust or corrosion. Now a system like this is going to help prevent the coupler being able to release from your hitch ball. It's also going to help rpevent being able to attach to unattended trailer. one of the key features about this pin lock is it's going to feature a thief proof thread and lock design. A couple of different ways to get the lock core off, you can sit here and turn the keys counter clockwise or you can hold the key in place and just twist off the end with that rubber coating which is connected to the pin. It's going to come in two keys, again they are going to be key to like.

You can purchase multiple locks and you can get those key to like as well. All you have to do is select the key to like option from drop down menu on this products product page, enter the number of locks needed into the quantity box. Really simply process. A couple of measurements to go over with you really quick. I'll give you the overall length measuring from edge to edge it's going to give you a measurement of about 4 3/8 of an inch. The span that we have which is just the measurement of the amount of usable space here on our pin is going to measure 7/8 of an inch.

We are going to show you how this operates. I have a coupler here today that does not have any type of pin system on it, the latch can freely move. First I'm going to show you how by installing a coupler pin and lock system like this. It's going to help that latch for being able to open. As you can see here on our coupler, we can fully open up the latch. It's not protected in anyway. By installing this, we are going to take care of that issue. Now with our trailer coupler lock installed, you can only lift up the latch so far which is not allowing it to fully disengage. Again this is going to help prevent the coupler being able to release from the connected hitch ball. It's also going to help prevent being able to attach to an unattended trailer. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RC6. This is the Deadbolt Trailer Coupler Lock. .

Ask the Experts about this DeadBolt Locks
Do you have a question about this Lock?

  • Recommendation For Locks To Prevent Theft Of A Camper Trailer
  • If you are wanting to lock the trailer to your 2002 Isuzu Trooper and you have a 2 inch hitch receiver, I would recommend the DeadBolt Trailer Hitch Receiver And Coupler Lockset, part # 7685. This is a set of locks that will lock the ball mount to your tow vehicles 2 inch hitch and also lock the trailers coupler to the hitch ball. Both of the locks can be keyed alike, so only one key is needed for both locks. Locking your trailer at both connections will add time when somebody is trying...

  • 3/8 Inch Diameter Locking Pin needed for a Triton Covered Snowmobile Trailer Lock
  • The DeadBolt Lock, item # RC6, has a shank diameter of 1/4 inch and span of 7/8 inches, if these dimensions will work for the cover latch on your snowmobile trailer cover, then the lock should work. You may want to consider the DeadBolt Lock Stainless Steel , item # RC6SS, for maximum weather protection and corrosion resistance, If these locks will not work for your latch we also have the Kuat Bike Rack Hitch Lock, item # KUATLOCK, which has a 3/8 inch diameter Pin and may work better...

  • Latch Width and Hole Diameter for Trailer Coupler # CA5400
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled trailer coupler # CA5400 to measure the latch width and its hole diameter. The latch outside width is just over 7/8 of an inch at 0.88 inches. And the hole diameter is just over 5/16 of an inch at 0.32 inches. If you end up needing a lock the Diversi-Tech lock, # DT30010, would be a good choice. It has a 7/8 inch span and a 1/4 inch diameter pin. We also have DeadBolt lock # RC6 with the same measurements.

  • Recommendation to Prevent Trailer Theft by Using Safety Chains
  • It is possible to move a trailer by just attaching to it's safety cables. Most people would avoid the method you described as the trailer will slam into the back of the tow vehicle while stopping. Basically it wouldn't be a thief's ideal method for theft of a trailer but it would be an option. As a way to prevent that type of theft I would recommend a wheel lock like the part # RA-25. This will attach to your rim and will make it nearly impossible to move the trailer. Check out the review...

  • Getting Keyed Alike Locksets for Hitch, Coupler and Cable Locks
  • Yes, you can get all of the locks you have mentioned keyed alike as long as you order from our Keyed Alike locks page. If you order all the locks you need at the same time they will come keyed alike. If you decide you need another lock keyed the same later you can call our customer service line at 1-800-298-8924 and request a lock, as long as it is on our Keyed Alike locks page, with the same key by giving them the key number you have. When you order please be sure to select keyed alike...

  • Availability of Keyed Alike Coupler Locks
  • The Butterfly Style Trailer Coupler Lock, item # 3808, is not available at this time keyed alike. We have several keyed alike coupler locks that may work for you. Item # RC6 and # RC6SS, have a 7/8 inch span and item # 7690 and RC2ss have a 1/2 inch span for attachment to the trailers coupler.

  • Comparison of the Deadbolt Coupler Lock and Master Lock Adjustable Coupler Lock
  • The main difference between the Deadbolt Coupler Lock, item # RC6, and the Master Lock Adjustable Trailer Coupler Lock - Stainless Steel, item # 2847DAT, is the style of the locks. The Masterlock has the advantage of being able to be used on many different styles of coupler and has a normal style key that can be duplicated at a local hardware store. The Deadbolt has a short span, 7/8 inches, so it can be flush to prevent removal. This style is more compact than the stick and block...

  • Trailer Coupler Latch Lock with 1 Inch Pin Span
  • Master Lock has an adjustable latch lock, # 2847DAT that has presets for either a 1 inch span or a 2 inch span. We also have some that are 7/8 inch spans which is 1/8 of an inch more than a 3/4. We have # RC6SS, # 2878DAT, and # RC6. I have linked some video reviews of these locks for you.

  • Couple Lock Recommendation that Can be Keyed Alike
  • I have a solution for you, but the Bulldog Coupler Lock part # BD580410 that you referenced can not be keyed alike. For a similar lock that can be keyed alike you would want the DeadBolt Lock part # 7691. The usable span of this lock is 2 inches. For one with a 7/8 inch span you would want the # RC6. Or for 2-1/2 inches, part # 7692.

  • Replacement Keys for DeadBolt Trailer Coupler Locks
  • Yes, the keys from the DeadBolt Trailer Coupler Lock, # RC6, and other DeadBolt coupler locks can be replaced if they are lost, but I strongly recommend recording the key number that is stamped on the key. The key number is used for replacement keys, so I recommend writing the key number down and keeping it somewhere safe just in case you lose the keys. Replacement keys can be purchased using part # CTJKEY.
