I love that these are heavy duty, stainless, and keyed alike. They will add a lot of security to my tow set up. My only regret is that I wish I had gotten the five (5) pack so if I ever put anything in my towed vehicle hitch, it would match also. They were easy to find and order, and shipped as promised. 494250

Comments
I like the locks as they provide the measure of security not found with the OEM pins. They are reliable and somewhat sturdy. There are two negatives:1. The pins seems to be showing signs of corrosion on their exterior.2. The covers for the key holes are very flimsy. The thin plastic used to secure them to the pins have broken. I now have to be very careful about not losing the formerly attached covers. I guess this is a $.02 part.

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. 325289

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

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. 289872


Comments
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].

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! 637952

Only gave it four because the covers are hard to get on and off. When you pull it off the whole cover comes off. One more thing I don't like they are all keyed the same but you have to use the key to put on and off the lock should be made so the lock when you put them on and not have to be turned to lock. Beside this the work great they just need to be improved That is why only four 566323

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Accessories and Parts

  • 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...

  • Locks for Shank and Ball Mount Platform of B and W Stow n Tow Adjustable Ball Mount
    We have a hitch lock set that will allow you to lock the platform of the B and W Tow n Stow ball mount like the # BWTS10048B with the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # AM3492. The shorter pin can be used in the shank of the ball mount and then the longer one will hold the platform to the shank like what you see in the attached picture. The Blue Ox lock would not work for what you are looking to do.

    Weight distribution cannot be used with a Class II trailer hitch. To determine the actual Class hitch you have it may say it on the hitch somewhere or in the owners manual for your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. A Class II hitch would have a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening size. A Class III hitch would have a 2 inch receiver opening. I have included a link to the right that covers the differences in hitch classes for you. If you do have a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver, check the...

  • 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.
