Video Transcript for Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lock Review

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.

Dodge Sprinter


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

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

Parked in many motel parking lots with high value electric scooters attached - nothing stolen! The proof is in the pudding.

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

by: Ron W.10/08/2012


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

by: John06/13/2013


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

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

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

by: Bryan01/10/2012


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

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



- 63201

by: Doug09/25/2012


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

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

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



- 63201

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

by: Victor04/29/2016


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

by: Mike07/26/2013


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

Do you have a question about this Lock?


  • Recommendation of a Light Weight, Platform Bike Rack that Does Not Use a Threaded Hitch Pin
  • There are two platform style bike racks I recommend for ease of installation/removal and do not use a threaded hitch pin. First is the Kuat Aluminum, Hitch Mounted 2 Bike Rack with Wheel Mount Cradles - The NV - 2 inch Receiver, # N101. This rack is made of light weight aluminum (the carrier only weighs 42 pounds), and tilts down to give you more access to the rear of the vehicle. I have included a video review of this rack below. Next is the Kuat Sherpa, # S101. This rack is also made...

  • Comparison Of Hidden Hitch, Draw-Tite, And Curt Trailer Hitches For 2016 Toyota Highlander
  • The three trailer hitches we offer for your 2016 Highlander all have the same weight capacities, and when installed would look the same since they are all installed the same. The Draw-Tite, part # 75896 and Hidden Hitch, part # 87660 trailer hitches are exactly the same. Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are sister companies and the only difference between these hitches is the brand name. All three hitches are Class lll and have 2 inch receiver openings.

All required installation hardware is included with the hitch and it will install without drilling. I have linked both the written instructions as well as a video for your review. Also linked are two helpful articles concerning hitch installation. If you intend to pull a trailer you'll also need...

  • Anti Rattle Device Compatible With Ballmount That Has Solid Shank
  • Because the shank is solid, I don't offer an anti-rattle lock that would work. You could use a hitch lock like part # 40107 and an anti-rattle device like part # RHSB. If you're using a Draw-Tite or Hidden Hitch that has the smaller, extra hole in the receiver tube next to the hitch pin hole, (see photo) you could use the # 63201 locking hitch pin that would also keep the shank of the # D210 moving around in the receiver tube.

  • Different Pin Hole Depths on Class III Trailer Hitch Accesories
  • The two pin holes that you are seeing, on Draw-Tite, Reese and Hidden Hitches are not what you think. They install another, smaller hole, other than the receiver pin hole for the J-Pin anti-rattle device. The part number is Tow Ready # 63201. The standard pin hole depth on a Class III hitch is normally 2-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the face of the receiver. This is not a hard and fast rule and may be slightly different between hitch models and manufacturers.

  • Which Hole On My Hitch Opening is the Hitch Pin
  • Sounds like you have a hitch that is set up for a j-pin style of anti-sway like the part # 63201. The rearmost hole on the hitch opening will be a little bit larger and that is the correct hole to use for the hitch pin of your bike rack. Most anti-rattle devices for bike racks are specific to that manufacturer and model of bike rack. If you email me back with the bike rack you have I can see what we offer that would work.

  • Distance from the Center of Receiver Hitch Pin Hole Back to Shank on Trailer Hitch Extender # 80307
  • On the Hitch Extender for 2 inch Trailer Hitches - 8 inch Long, # 80307, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole in the receiver back to the shank is 4-1/8 inches on the outside, 3 inches on inside. There is also a smaller hole nearer the receiver opening that is meant for a J-Style Anti-Rattle hitch pin like the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2 inch Receivers, # 63201. I have included a link to a video that features this lockset below.

  • Drilling a Hole in a Receiver to Accept a J-Pin Anti-Rattle Device
  • Drilling a hole in your hitch will void the manufacturers warranty. That being said you can purchase other styles of anti-rattle devices that will work very well and you will not have to modify the hitch to install them. I would recommend the SoftRide anti-rattle hitch lock, part # SR25219, this lock has a nut that installs inside the hollow draw bar or shank of the hitch accessory and then, when the hitch pin lock is threaded into the hitch, the ball mount or shank is wedged to the side...

  • Why are There Two Different Size Holes on the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch # 87440
  • The Hidden Hitch Class III Trailer Hitch, # 87440, that you have on your 2009 Honda CR-V will use the 5/8 inch hole to secure hitch mounted accessories or ball mounts to the trailer hitch. The smaller hole is designed for the J-Pin Stabilization Pin, # 63201, and is not intended to be a hitch pin hole. If you have a hitch mounted accessory with a 1/2 inch hole, then it is probably intended to be used with a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver, rather than a 2 inch receiver. If this is...

  • How to Free Stuck Lock Cylinder of Draw-Tite J-Pin Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock
  • Graphite is a good choice to keep the lock from seizing up, but not the best choice when it's already seized up. I'd try giving the lock a good soak with an aerosol penetrating lubricant like PB Blaster. Wait a short time, then insert the key and give the end of the key a couple of sharp raps with a mallet. The idea is to deliver a quick shock to the lock cylinder, that will hopefully free up the stuck tumblers and allow the cylinder to rotate. If that doesn't work, you'll need to try...

  • Yes, both the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 87493, and the Draw-Tite Hitch, part # 75650 have the hole for the j-pin. The J-Pin hole is a great feature as you might know, as you can use a J-Pin to eliminate rattles caused by the clearance needed between the hitch and any ball mount or other accessory like a bike rack that mounts in the receiver. If a replacement J-Pin is needed, we have the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin, part # 63201, which also has an integrated lock for added...

Check out the picture I attached that shows this product being installed on a hitch that is similar to yours. I also attached a review for this product that shows how it works. I would not recommend you use the smaller hole even though it seems to offer a smooth ride for you. Since you have a Thule rack you should be able to just tighten up the threaded...

The pin hole closest to the trailer, a 1/2 inch pin hole, is not for towing. It is only for use with the J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset # 63201. Based on my measurements you will need an extender that is at least 6-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the back of the receiver. Unfortunately we do...

  • The Draw-Tite trailer hitch you have, # 75531, is set up to accept a j-bolt anti-rattle lock, # 63201. That is why there are that front and rear set of holes. The Yakima bike rack, # Y02424, secures through the larger set of holes (the set closer to the vehicle). This rack comes with a threaded hitch pin that you tighten down. This also acts as an anti-rattle device. The clip that goes through the other end is just a fail safe. The pin is really held in place because it is threaded...

  • The Reese Sway-Control Bracket, # RP26003, is 3/8 of an inch thick so you will need a hitch ball that has a shank long enough to fit through the ball mount and the sway-control bracket and still have enough threads left to install the nut properly. The etrailer.com Drop Ball Mount Kit # EBMK4 has a shank that is 2-1/4 inches long. Since at least one thread needs to be visible beneath the lock washer and nut once the ball is screwed into place, part # EBMK4 should work well for your...

  • Anti-Rattle Device for a 2013 Cadillac SRX with Class III Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch
  • The Class III Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87573 for your 2013 Cadillac SRX can use the J-Pin stabilizer, # 63201, which doubles as a lock. But it works best for side to side movement and not so much for up and down movement. For something that is going to work side to side and up and down I recommend the Blue Ox hitch immobilizer # BX88224. With this device tightened down it is going to take out the play of accessories up and down, left to right, sideways, frontways, backways, and across...

You can use it with a Class IV trailer hitch if that hitch has a 2 inch receiver and the receiver is J-Pin compatible, like those pictured on the lower portion of the product page. I have...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for a Factory Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Chevy Suburban
  • Only certain trailer hitches are J-Pin compatible. The factory hitch on your new 2012 Chevy Suburban sounds like it is not a Draw-Tite J-Pin compatible hitch. You will not want to drill into the hitch because that could compromise the structural integrity of the hitch, make the capacity unknown, void the warranty, and make it unsafe to use. What I recommend is to use an anti-rattle device like the Blue Ox hitch immobilizer, # BX88224 or the Roadmaster quiet hitch, # RM-061. Either of...

  • Tools Required to Install Hidden Hitch Class III Hitch 87686 on 2016 Mazda CX-5
  • Trailer hitch installation on your 2016 Mazda CX-5 will require basic hand tools like a 3/4-inch socket and ratchet, and also a torque wrench like # ALL944001. The linked instructions tell you all the tools required to mount Class III Hitch # 87686 on your Mazda CX-5. I also included a helpful article with tips for an easier hitch install. If you'd like an anti-rattle lock for use with this hitch (to secure a ball mount or bike rack) you might consider the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization...

  • Can an Anti-Rattle Device be Used With a Weight Distribution System
  • I spoke with my contact at Reese about weight distribution and anti-rattle devices. He stated that the use of an anti-rattle device is permissible and cited the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset, # 63201, as the type of anti-rattle he would use. I have included a link to a video review of the J-Pin for you to view.

  • Will Swivel Head Trailer Hitch Receiver Locks Fit Thule Vertex Bike Rack and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
  • The hole that you are indicating is blocked is actually designed only for a J-pin lock, # 63201. It does not have any other purpose and does not have to be used if you do not want to. I have linked a video review of the pin for you. Since the bike rack has a threaded shank, only its hitch bolt or a locking one from the same manufacturer will fit. In this case, for the Thule Vertex, # TH9031XT, you would use the Snug Tite lock # THSTL2. Manufacturers intentionally thread their products...

  • What is the Useable Length of the Hitch Extender for 2 inch Trailer Hitches - 8 inch Long # 80307
  • Yes, the Hitch Extender for 2 inch Trailer Hitches - 8 inch Long, item # 80307, is measured from the center of the hitch pin hole in the shank to the center of the hitch pin hole in the receiver portion of the extender. This measurement gives you the working distance that the extender will provide. The overall length of the extender is 13 inches. There is a smaller hole forward of the hitch pin hole in the receiver that is designed for the use of a J-Style Anti-Rattle hitch pin like...

  • Lubricating a Locking Hitch Pin
  • For lubricating any lock, a dry lubricant like powdered graphite is recommended. Using grease and oil or spray lubricants like WD 40 can actually attract dirt and grime and make the lock cylinder sticky after a time.

  • Hitch Pin or Lock for a Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch with 2 Inch Receiver
  • The Class III Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75528 requires a 5/8 inch diameter pin such as # PC3 or locking hitch pin # 7683. On this particular hitch you also have the option of using locking J-Pin # 63201 which is a locking hitch pin and anti-rattle device in one.

  • Hitch Pin Lock Recommendation for a 2012 Toyota Sequoia
  • Sounds like you may have a j-pin style anti-rattle device like part # 63201 and now have a hitch that doesn't have the second hole near the hitch pin hole for it to work. The hitch pin lock part # 40107 would work well for you as long as you have a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2012 Toyota Sequoia.

  • Anti-Rattle Locking Hitch Pin for the Thule Hitching Post Pro Bike Rack
  • The J-Pin stabilization pin # 63201 is not compatible with the Thule Hitching Post Pro bike rack, # TH934XTR. The only locking anti-rattle device that will work with this bike rack is the Thule Snug-Tite # THSTL2.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendations for a Hollow Shank Bike Rack
  • The threaded hitch pins we offer as anti-rattle devices are designed specifically to fit certain bike racks. Without knowing what bike rack you have I can't recommend one, but if the bike rack has a hollow shank you could use a # 63232 and it will take the sway out the rack and will lock it to the hitch. J-pin style anti-rattle devices like the # 63201 do work great, but I can't recommend you drill a hole in the hitch so that you could use it.

  • Compatability of Hitch Locks With Draw-Tite Class 3 Hitch On My 2006 Honda Pilot EX
  • I checked our records and you purchased the Draw-Tite Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, item # 75599. Either of the hitch locks that you have selected, # 2866DAT and # 1480DAT will work with your 2 inch receiver hitch, in the second hole. The first hole in the receiver of your hitch is designed for a J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches, item # 63201, and is not designed as the attachment point for the bike rack hitch pin. You will need to install the bike...

  • Trailer Hitch Platform Bike Rack that Will Clear 2013 Jeep Wrangler Spare Tire When Rack is Folded
  • That outer most hole you are measuring from is not a hitch pin hole. It is there for a J-pin anti-rattle device, # 63201. You would need to measure from the center of the other hole. On the stock spare tire on the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sahara that measurement should be around 6 inches. The T2, # TH9044 measures 4-1/2 inches from hitch pin hole center to the bike carrier rails when folded so it would not work. A similar rack, the Yakima HoldUp # Y02443, measures 7 inches from the center...
