Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 63201. This is the Draw-Tite J-Pin, as well as the Barrel Lockset for 2 inch trailer hitches. The J-Pin is going to secure your hitch mounted accessory to your vehicle. Once this is installed, it's also going to reduce the vibration from within the hitch. Now this is going to be made from a steel construction, has a really nice protective finish on it to resist rust and corrosion and it's going to be ideal for your hitch mounted accessories, especially when needing to lock them to your hitch for security purposes. The threaded portion is going to help eliminate or drastically reduce the amount of vibration from within the hitch. This does require that your hitch is J-Pin compatible.
Your hitch must have two pin holes, the larger one being 5/8ths of an inch for the larger portion of the pin. The smaller one measuring 17/32nds of an inch for the little nib here at the end of the J-Pin. It's going to come with the J-Pin, you're going to get the nut, which just threads onto this portion here once you have this installed through your hitch and accessory. It's going to come with a lock, just goes over the end there. That uses a ball barrel design, so it's got three little balls on the inside of this tube here. Once the lock goes around the portion right here of the pin, you push this down, it pushes those, the balls out into that location on the pin, so it engages and it will not come off unless you remove it with the key.
It's a really nice secure lock that goes on the end of the pin and that's going to lock it to your hitch. You're going to get two keys as well as the included wrench to tighten down the nut. The lock has a nice little dust cap on it that goes over the lock core, keeping out any dirt or grim from entering the body of the lock, so that it's going to be protected from rust and corrosion as well. Now this will work with hollow or solid shank ball mounts and hitch accessories. A few measurements to go over with you real quick. The overall length with the lock installed, that's going to give us a measurement of 8 5/8ths of an inch.
If we take the lock off, the overall length of the pin is now going to measure 6 3/4 of an inch. From the end of the pin to the threaded portion, measuring here at the top of the threaded portion, that' going to give us a measurement of about 2 1/2 inches. Then from this point here on the J portion of the pin to the very end of the pin, that's going to give us a measurement of about 5 1/8th of an inch. Now I do want to go ahead and show you how this would install in your hitch. I have a J-Pin compatible hitch here today, as well as a hollow shank ball mount. We're going to place our ball mount inside of our hitch.
Then we're going to line up our pin holes and we can simply take our J-Pin, place it through and I'll turn it sideways so you can see how that engages both pin holes. Just like that and then on this side, we need to install the nut. It's always nice to go ahead and get this as tight as you can by hand and then on a majority of applications, you'd be able to use the included wrench. On this particular hitch, it does not give us enough clearance to use that wrench and so we're simply going to use a 15/16th inch socket with a wrench, just to go ahead and finish tightening that down. Now without it tight, you can see, I'll back this up just a little bit. You can see that we have a lot of play within the hitch. Now with it all tightened down, you can see that pretty much all of that play has been removed, and that's going to drastically reduce the vibration that we normally experience within the hitch. Once you're at this point, all we have left to do is to install the lock. It simply goes onto the end of the pin and you push this portion down to engage it and it's going to be locked on there. All you have to do is close the dust cap and everything is set to go. That's going to do it for our review of part number 63201. This is the Draw-Tite J-Pin for 2 inch trailer hitches. .

Innovative product. Works well with bike rack which previously rattled and bounced excessively. This appears to tighten everything well. 59536

J-pin works great ! No more rattle pulling my trailer it tightens the receiver good . Lock is nice also, we'll made! 128876

This product is great. It completely eliminated the loose hitch problem that caused my bicycles to sway back and forth on their hitch mounted bike rack. What was even better was the help I got from eTrailer.com in showing me what was needed and shipping it quickly. I would never have found this product without your help. Since you had already helped me with my trailer hitch, this time I knew to ask you first. Keep up the good work...I'll be back. 13279
Great Product. Came up a little short but added two washers from the hardware store and everything snugged up real tight. No more wobble on my rear step to get into my sprinter van, and it is locked on. Also the wrench was useless in my case, no access at all. I would recommend this product to anybody with a newer hitch (it requires an extra hole) to lock on a step or bike rack, something you aren't going to take off every day. 66412

This stabilizer pin does just what it aims to do for my Draw-Tite hitch (not sure it fits other brands). It made my loosey-goosey bike rack rock-solid tight! It's easy to use, as long as I don't lose the two keys supplied, which I thought was too few (a similar product I recently bought provided 6!). I plan to have some more made, otherwise I would have given it the highest score. 56682
Etrailer is a quality retailer. Every experience has been uneventful, no screw ups, great service and products that meet my picky standards. The J -Pin's design is simple and functional. Got it for my wife's bike rack because it fit sloppy. No plastic, metal on metal. It tightens down the receiver and rack so there's zero play between the two. Thanks again, Colin 75438
These are EXCELLENT- the BEST on the Market and I do HOPE the Manufacture never decides to DROP THEM! IF you pull ANYTHING- this -if put on CORRECTLY will NOT BANG on taking off or Stopping while pulling a Boat or whatever- I think THIS was a GREAT Inovation- without this on my Hummer or SUV you HEAR the Bang Bamg as you take off and Go- they are the BEST!!! 151999
Seems like a solid product, but be careful which hitch and bike rack combination you're using it with. For example, I have a hitch that it works with (Hidden Hitch) but it does not work with the bike rack that I use with that hitch (Thule)....so I had to send this pin back. Call eTrailer to check on your specific hitch/rack combination before ordering this. 84426

I know nothing about hitches and the like. eTrailer tossed this item in for free for me on my order. After installing my cargo carrier I was really worried that it moved around too much. Turns out that this J-pin Stabilization Pin was exactly what the doctor ordered. If you get a cargo carrier, get this pin. You will not be disappointed. 28273
This product is simple, easy to use, and does the job as advertised. I use this product in conjunction with a cargo platform and it eliminates most of the flex/bounce you would have with a standard hitch pin. The lockset is also a nice feature and both the pin and lockset seem to be plenty durable. 29414

I was very surprise to see the package come so fast it took me only 45 min to in stall the hitch on to my truck I don't have a camra that will take pic and put on to my comp. sorry but the hitch looks very good on the truck. im very happy with it. 60417
by: Chris W.12/03/2012
Great product! I was excited when I learned it was free with my purchase. It is a little more heavy duty than what I need since I won't be leaving the hitch on all the time, but I can definitely use it on my dads ranch. 60547
The process was effortless! the j-pin was delivered on time and at the lowest cost on the web. The description is accurate and tech support clear. It is like dealing with Amazon! Overall a great experience. 16948
I was looking for a product to take the noise out of my hitch. This product works perfectly and I love it. If you have a Draw Tite, Hidden Hitch or Reese this is the hitch pin you want. 55730

Strong and a very reliable product. The nicest thing is that it will nor add to any rattle when properly installed. Makes it impossible for someone to steal your tongue and ball 60691

Best trailer receiver pin going!!! Works best on Draw-Tite hitches but you can drill a hole on other brands in the receiver. Keeps all the noise and thumping from occurring. 138353

etrailer gets 5 stars for the quality of their products and super fast service.Anytime I need a trailer or towing related item I use etrailer. Thanks Katherine 13537
This was just the ticket to eliminate the annoying rattle and bounce of my hitch as there was a bit of play between the receiver and the hitch. Great product. 87006
by: Brian E06/11/2012
This is a must have for HiddenHitch and Draw-Tite Hitches. It holds the ball mount good and tight. There is no play on the mount, thus no banging or clunking. 43635
This pin works really well, but it's a little long on the lock end. If you have anything close to the sides of the hitch, this pin may not work. 91775
