Solid lock pins - all keyed the same! Great product at a reasonable price. Shipping was very fast. Thanks etrailer!



by:

Great product that provides assurance your toad stays attached! It takes a bit longer to attach due to the locking/unlocking however these pins will not accidently loose a cotter pin and come out. Well worth the small inconvenience.



by:

I haven't put them on yet, but they look perfect.



by:

Works great, good quality parts.



by:

Top quality products and service always….As Arnold said…I’ll be back!

Absolutely as I thought it would.



by:

Quality locks- all keyed the same- ideal for flat tow setup- I also have a hitch adapter to drop my level- the 4th lock came in handy

One year later they’re rusty

Even though these locks do have a chrome finish over time they still will experience rust. Especially in areas that experience exposure to road salt or salt water. I would recommend keeping a rust resistant spray on hand like Rustoleum and touch them up from time time. I also recommend using a silicone-based lubricant spray on the inside of the lock to help extend the life of the lock.



by:

All components very well made and solid, with good finish. Delivery packaging offered good protection. Installation instructions clear.

Service from etrailer.com was excellent - questions answered fully and promptly before order placed, price promise to match other supplier prices honored, order out for delivery within 24 hours with tracking information, and e-mail sent immediately after products delivered with supplier product info and instruction PDFs all gathered together in one place.

Thanks for the very professional follow-up on the Blue Ox products I bought. In the end, I only used the set-up for about 3,000 miles before I changed my rig from a Class C towing a Jeep Wrangler using the Blue Ox parts to a Jeep Grand Cherokee towing an Airstream. Everything worked just fine for those 3,000 miles and all the parts have been sold on, practically as new, on [on-line].



by:

The product seems great, but it is the service I found incredible. One of the locks seemed to be bent iside and sometimes it stuck and sometimes it would not latch properly. I was not going to use a defective item to hold onto a new Jeep and called etrailer to see if it could be made right easily. At first they tried to see if they had one in stock that could be used as a replacement, but with the same key since all 4 are keyed the same. No luck, so etrailer called me back and they had contacted Blue Ox to have a replacement with a matching lock shipped directly to me. It showed up Fedex only a few days later. Not too often one finds service like this. Since they I have ordered more items. And will continue to do so.

Performing fine. The tow car has not detached once using these locks, Isnt that the best measure? Occasionally squirt a bit of lubricant in lick mechanism



by:

It’s great having all the locks you need and they are all keyed alije

Fantastic. Was definitely a wise choice



by:

Exactly what I needed



by:

Everything went well



by:

just what I wanted. all 4 pins have the same lock. have not used them yet. but I'm sure they will do a great job. thanks



by:

Matching locks was exactly what I needed. I also didn't want to depend on cheap hitch pins of questionable quality.



by:

Not happy. Ordered the four locks so I could have matching keys. Guess what? The keys are the same match for the three locks that be came with the blue ox setup. Wasted $$ on four when all I needed was one. Wish I had known. Not happy and not sure why they fit 2 different sets of locks

by:

This set is great for securing the tow bar to the base plate tabs as well as the tow bar and high-low adapter to the hitch all with one key. Convenient!



by:

As advertised. These locks fit perfectly. Be aware that the key must be in the lock and turned to install. The key stays in unlocked position, and must be turned to locked position to remove key. This is probably best way, since once the key is out you know it's installed correctly, since key won't turn unless all the way on or off.

Great. Having all keys the same really makes hook up easy.



by:

Works just like they should with the setup I have.



by:

Very convenient to have them all keyed the same. Reassuring to have my towed vehicle and hitch locked to the RV.



by:

I could have looked for these locks at every store in town and not found them anywhere, wasting a bunch of gas. etrailer has the best inventory on trailer and hitch items I have ever seen. They were able to 2nd day ship them to me (for a price of course) and I had them in my possession before we left on vacation. KUDOS to etrailer. AND the locks worked perfectly for what I had come up with to secure my Hi-Lift jack to my jeep.



by:

Can't pass along enough praise for you folks! Ordered these, along with a pair of safety cable extensions, on Easter weekend. Received an email notifying shipment... on Easter day! While not a large order, I needed them for a trip the following week, so was concerned they wouldn't arrive in time. Even though I didn't request rapid shipping, they arrived in plenty of time. Thanks much!

  • Will Blue Ox Base Plate Lock Kit BX88177 Fit 2 inch Hitch
    Yes, the hitch lock of the Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Lock Kit # BX88177 does fit a 2 inch hitch that has a 2-1/2 inch outer width. Your hitch being 2-1/2 inches in width overall is pretty standard.

  • Does the Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Lock Kit Come with Five Locks
    The Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Lock Kit is offered in a quantity of 2 as part # BX88359, 3 as part # BX88101, and 4 as part # BX88177. The tow bar arms will require one 1/2" lock each and the tow bar shank will require one 5/8" lock or two 5/8" locks if using a high/low adapter. If you order multiple kits you can obtain more locks but the two kits would not be keyed alike.

  • Recommended Keyed Alike Locks for Blue Ox Tow Bar
    The Blue Ox Base-Plate-to-Tow-Bar Lock # BX8859 does not offer a keyed alike option. My recommendation is to use the Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Lock Kit - Qty 3 # BX88101 to give you that keyed alike kit. Another option, especially if you are using a high-low adapter is to use the Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Lock Kit - Qty 4 # BX88177 to get the keyed alike locks.

  • One Hitch Lock for 1-1/4 Inch and 2 Inch Trailer Hitches
    We do not have a locking pin with a sleeve but I do have an awesome recommendation for you. Since you would have to keep track of the sleeve any way you could use Master Lock lock set # 2866DAT. It has a 1/2 inch pin and a 5/8 inch pin that use the same lock. Instead of storing a sleeve somewhere you would be storing the pin that isn't being used.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 4,000 lb Trailer
    The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Tongue weight is typically 10-15...

  • 5/8 Inch Diameter Hitch Pin Lock that Can be Keyed Alike
    The # e98880 can be keyed alike if you select that option from the drop down menu that is right by the add to cart button. You would just need to select keyed alike and then select the quantity of locks that you want.

  • Are the Blue Ox Base Plate and Receiver Locks # BX88177 Keyed Alike
    The Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Locks you mentioned, part # BX88177 are indeed keyed alike. If all you are needing is two hitch locks for a Class III receiver, the Dead Bolt Stainless Steel Receiver Lock, part # e98882 is available keyed alike.

  • Which Replacement Pins Fit the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit on a 2008 Subaru Outback-Wagon
    If you are referring to the removable bracket arms that connect the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX3613 to the tow bar then yes they are included. If you are referring to the pins that secure the arms to tow bar then it does not come with them. Those pins generally come with the tow bar. If you are looking for some, we do carry replacement pins in a pack of 2 # BX84-0140. If you would prefer locking pins to secure your tow bar and base plate we have a pack of 4 # BX88177.

  • Parts Included With the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7380
    The Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7380 includes the hitch pin and clip, the pins and clips where the triple lug brackets on the tow bar connect to the baseplates, and the safety cables needed. If you want locking pins, I recommend the Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Lock Kit - Qty 4 # BX88177 which will also provide you with the locking pin for a high-low adapter.

  • Longest Trailer Hitch Lock for 10 Locks Keyed Alike
    The Blue Ox # BX88177 consists of two 1/2 inch diameter and 2 5/8 inch diameter pins. They are only able to have the 4 keyed alike. The measurement is 4-3/8 inches between the opening like # BX88212 which cannot be keyed alike . The only option to get all ten keyed alike is to use the DeadBolt Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # e98881 which measures 3-5/8 inches between the outside cylinders. I've attached photos to assist.

  • Recommended Base Plate and Receiver Locks with Unique Keys
    I have a solution for you and I was a little bit surprised to hear this, so I reached out for confirmation from Blue Ox and they confirmed that you are correct on this. All of their locks in the Blue Ox Base-plate and Receiver Lock Kit # BX88177 have the exact same locks, so anybody with this product's keys would be able to unlock these locks. While this is highly unlikely that someone would be carrying around the same keys to your locks, I can understand this concern. With that being...

  • Lock Recommendation for Roadmaster Base Plate Kit
    Roadmaster uses a specific connection style for their locks, so for a lock set that would lock the base plates to the vehicle and the tow bar to the hitch of the tow vehicle you would want part # RM-304 or part # RM-302 for just the base plate locks. The lock kit part # BX88177 would only work with a Blue Ox system that uses their style of lug connection.

  • Recommended Locks for Roadmaster Nighthawk Towbar and Roadmaster Baseplate
    For Roadmaster base plates and tow bars you'll want to use the # RM-304, since the Blue Ox # BX88177 is only designed for Blue Ox base plates. This kit comes with locks for the base plates and a locking hitch pin so you can secure your Roadmaster Nighthawk # RM-676 to the RV.
