Video Transcript for Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilizing Trailer Hitch Lock Review

This J-Pin assembly is basically an anti-sway device and also a device to lock down your ball mount for security purposes. Well take it apart and show you how it works. You put the key on there and give it a turn and it pops out and comes apart like so. Then you take this nut which comes off also, and this gets installed. As you can see, it goes through the hitch pin hole and then this has to go into a hole thats been punched into the receiver hitch itself. This hole combination is really specific to Draw-Tite hitches only, so this would really only work on Draw-Tite hitches of recent manufacture in the last couple years. Once you have your pin installed, put the nut back on and the kit does provide a wrench for it so we can give it a good snug. What happens is it keeps it from rattling around anymore. Pop the lock into place, push the button and youre good to go. There you have it, thats for part # 63201, the J-Pin Stabilizing Lock from Tow Ready.

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, Colin75438

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

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 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 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

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

  • 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 # 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.

  • 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 of the

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Capacity and Trailer Hitch Compatibility of J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset, # 63201
  • The Draw-Tite J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset, # 63201, does not have a towing capacity. The 5/8 inch pin is made of steel, and it will take more weight than most trailer hitches and non-commercial vehicles are capable of. This pin is designed to work with 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. You can use it with a Class IV trailer hitch if that hitch has a 2 inch receiver and the receiver is Draw-Tite J-Pin compatible, like those pictured on the lower portion of the product page. I hav

  • 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 these de
