Today were going to review part number 63201 from Tow Ready. This is our J-pin stabilizing pin with lock. Well go ahead and start off by installing a ball mount into our hitch and well go ahead and use a regular pin and clip. Now you can see with the pin installed we can move the ball mount around and this one creates noise and a thunking sound. Then well go ahead and show you how the J-pin works. First well go ahead and show it going through the ball mount.
You can see how the J-hook goes through where the hitch pin went and then the J part goes around to the side and pushes on the side of the ball mount. When you tighten down the J-pin it pulls the ball mount to the side to help eliminate the noise. Now well go ahead and install the J-pin into the hitch. When we install it in the hitch you can see theres a second hole in the hitch. This J-pin is designed to work with hitches with a second hole.
This will work with Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, and Reese Hitches. Well go ahead and install it and you can see how the J-pin will go through the smaller hole and how it will push against the ball mount. To put it all together well put the ball mount in and then lets go ahead and put the J-pin in. Now well go ahead and install the flange nut. Well run it down finger tight and then use the provided tool that comes with the kit and tighten it up.
About two quarter turns and the ball mount has moved to one side and not able to move. Now well go ahead and install the lock. Well go ahead and take the lock well push it as far as we can go and then push on the lock core and that locks it in place. Then we can go ahead and install the rubber cap. Now we use this on a ball mount to secure it.
However this can be used on a cargo carrier or a bicycle rack that uses a pin and clip to hold it in place. This is designed for us with 2 inch receivers only. Thatll finish for review of part number 63201 from Tow Ready.

Summary: The J-Pin is the best invention since sliced bread! If etrailer were more efficient it would be illegal. 153704

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

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
Have only opened the box and not yet had the occasion to use the new trailer J-pin. It appears to be well made and of high quality. Of particular note, it was a pleasure actually opening the package. I had no need to get out the tin-snips or a hand saw or a hunting knife. The package stayed closed until I needed it to open and then popped apart as if it was just waiting for my request. Thank you eTrailer! 280162

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

I am very happy with the quality of my trailer hitch locking /ant-rattle pin with a 'key' lock. Service was impeccable and promptly received. Thank You. I will certainly use etrailer.com for any future needs. 278831
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
Good product, eliminates a lot of noise. The only downside is the lock cover doesn't weather well, had mine over a year and the "rubber" keyway cover is starting to fail. I would buy another one. 263196
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
by: Bob L12/05/2012
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
by: Doc C06/30/2014
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
Works very nicely except the rubber cap broke off and is lost. To keep the keyhole from clogging with dirt and grime, I use a piece of duct tape. 247551
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
by: Paul M.05/04/2013
Haven't use it yet but ordering and shipping was just as described. Website is an excellent source of information on products offered. Thanks 78958
by: Mike S.08/07/2016
The j-pin stabilization pin is the best. If you can add this to your hitch do it. The noise from hitch rattle is GONE. Worth every dime!!!!! 280911
by: Roger G10/10/2016
Excellent product and easy to use. One benefit is that it tightens up the hitch connection reducing any "rattle". Well worth the money. 305061
by: Brian N09/07/2016
A product that allows you to tighten the component inserted in the 2 inch receiver to keep it from moving around. A great product. 292213
by: Gene J.05/21/2011
Just as Tommy said, installs easily and completely eliminates rattles. Nice piece and not too much more than a standard pin lock. 15013
by: Jim F.01/01/2013
Did not even know this existed! Wonderful product, keeps the trailer more secure and anti-rattle, while in motion. 62322
by: Michael D12/20/2011
So far so good. It will take some time to see how the materials hold up. I can already see some wear in the wrench. 28292
Yes, I am very satisfied with it and use it on occasion. It’s very practical and useful. Thank you for inquiring. 301679
