Video Transcript for Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Product Line Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox Receiver Lock. We've got three different sizes. For the Class 4 and 5 we've got the 5/8" extra long pin here. That part number is BX88212. Here in the middle we've got the Class 3 or Class 4, that's going to fit up to the 2" shank. This part number is BX8858.

We also have part number BX8859, this is for or Class 1 or Class 2. This one offers the 1/2" shank design. As you can see these are going to be perfect for securing your Blue Ox tow bar, ball mount, bike rack, cargo carrier, whatever it is you need to secure onto your vehicle and don't have to worry about unintentional disconnect or somebody taking it. Completely made in the United States. They put a nice chrome finish on it. It's going to give us a good, long lasting, good looking product.

There's a dust cap here on the end. That protects our cylinder style lock from any damage, dirt or debris getting inside of there. There's a couple different spots here you can see they've got a really nice nurled 00:01:18 or textured finish to it. It's going to help us get a good grip on it as we're trying to operate it in maybe some more extreme or inclement weather. As you can see here a cylinder key, just slide in 1/4 turn, we're going to have this release. This isn't like some of the other receiver hitch locks where you have to continually turn your key and thread that down on there. It's going to operate just like a standard hitch pin.

We'll slide it through, whether it's our tow bar, our ball mount or bike rack, whatever else it is, put the cap on, quarter turn the other way. As you can see it's nice and secure and we're ready to attach our vehicle to the back of our RV, we're ready to attach our trailer to our ball mount, or load up our cargo carrier and head down the road. Now that we've taken a good look at them and we've seen how they're going to work and how they're made, that will complete today's look at the Blue Ox Series of Receiver Locks. .

The pins are replacements for attaching our car to the Motorhome. The pins were more than I had anticipated. I got a better product at a very good price. You can’t beat that!
