Video Transcript for Tow Ready Cable Lock Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Tow Ready Cable Lock. This is a 4-foot in length. Cable diameter is 5/16ths of an inch. The part number on it is TR63255. As you can see the cable when not in use coils up nicely for convenient storage. Has a double looped end. This is going to allow us to go around a larger item and secure it with our lock here at the end and it will actually pass through itself.

Sometimes these will, sometimes they won't. This will actually pass through so we can get it around our last item, run it through our other ladders let's say and then connect it to the wall so we won't have to worry about it disappearing. This is also great for bikes, tools, whatever that you need to secure this is going to work well. It has a vinyl coating that covers our cable. This is going to prevent corrosion and also scratching or any kind of abrasion on the things that we're securing to and securing. It's a braided steel cable.

As I said it's 5/16ths of an inch. This is going to prevent . Not prevent but at least help keeping it being cut or sawed 01:06 or . Those many different cables in there really help to hold strong. Now just an example of a way that we could use this. Be our bike here.

We want to get it secured so it doesn't come up missing. Simply wrap our cable around and then we can secure it with our lock. This is an inch and a half laminated steel body lock. It's going to come with two keys. Simple to use.

Bring it around, lock it up. That's all there is to it. No matter what you need to secure, one of the things that around here we see a lot of securing stuff in your open trailers. This could very easily go through a toolbox, a generator, a small boat. Tie it off to the trailer, you won't have to worry about it. Now that we've gone over the features, showing you how it works, that will complete today's look at the Tow Ready 4-foot long, 5/16ths inch diameter steel safety cable. Part number TR63255. .

  • Will Hollywood Racks Express # HRE3 Fit 20-Inch Kids Bike and a 24 inch MCS Racing Bike
    The Hollywood Racks Express 3-Bike Carrier, part # HRE3, is a good fit for your 2001 Buick Park Avenue as long as it does not have a rear spoiler. Also, since your vehicle has a soft rear bumper you will want to keep in mind that the carrier and bikes together may weigh more than the bumper capacity. The Express uses holes in the underside of the vehicle frame for attaching the mounting hooks. If your Park Avenue does have a rear spoiler you can use one of the Thule 3-bike carriers shown...

  • Will a Swagman Threaded Hitch Pin Lock Fit a Curt Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
    Manufacturers of hitch accessories such as bike rack and cargo carriers make the threaded bolts and weldnuts in the accessories uniquely threaded so that you cannot use other manufacturer's products so the Swagman lock, # S64031, is not a confirmed fit for the Curt cargo carrier # C18145. To lock the carrier to the hitch I recommend using a short cable lock such as # 8419DPF or # TR63255. You would just need to route the cable through the carrier and then through the safety chain loops...

  • Will Thule Passage 2-Bike Trunk-Mount Carrier # TH910XT Fit on a 2012 Volkswagen CC
    Yes, the Thule Passage 2-Bike Carrier, part # TH910XT, will fit on your 2012 Volkswagen CC. For reference I have provided a link to our main product page for 2-bike hanging-style trunk-mount carriers that will fit your vehicle, including the Passage 2. The light-weight Passage 2 features the patented Thule FitDial adjustment system for easy installation, dual folding arms for easy storage and a secure 6-strap mounting system. Cushioned anti-sway cradles prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle...

  • 2-Bike Carrier Recommendation for 2011 Mini Cooper Hard Top
    For your 2011 Mini Cooper Hard Top I suggest the Yakima QuickBack 2 Bike Trunk Mounted Rack # Y02621. This 2-bike rack features dual arms with anti-sway cradles to support your bikes and includes a lock to secure the carrier to your Mini. Its light weight (less than 14-lbs) means that the rack will not contribute too much to the total weight load on your trunk. If you will be transporting a bike without a horizontal top frame tube (like what is found on a typical man's bike) then an adapter...

  • Replacement Cable for Swagman Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable for Bike Racks
    The Swagman Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable for Bike Racks, part # S64030, includes a special washer that fits into one of the loops on the ends of the cable. This washer prevents that end of the cable from being slipped over the lock mechanism. We do offer other stand-alone lock cables that are generally similar, such as the RockyMounts Steelbraid Cable # RKY3854, but they do not have the washer in place on the loop. Without this special washer in place it might be possible to remove...

  • Recommendations for Tilting Hitch Mount 2-Bike Rack for a 2006 Honda CR-V That Will Clear Spare Tire
    I know you are looking for a hitch mounted bike rack, I believe I have a solution that would work much better and covers all of your need parameters. To carry 2 bikes on your 2006 Honda CR-V the Thule Spare Me 2 # TH963PRO is a spare tire bike rack solution. Using this carrier will solve a lot of your issues being that you can access your cargo easily and it does fold down when not in use. Another advantage is if your vehicle has the Honda cover on the spare tire, the center attachment...

  • How to Lock a Rola Cargo Carrier or Bike Rack to a Trailer Hitch
    The best option to add a locking hitch pin to your Rola cargo carrier or bike rack would be to try either the Threaded Hitch Pin for Swagman 2" Hitch Racks part # S64027 or the HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches part # HE6001. As you mentioned, they do not make a locking hitch pin specifically for their carriers but they have had success with other manufacturers. However, we have not tested any of the other manufacturer's hitch pins yet so I cannot guarantee either...

  • Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recomendations for a Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2011 CRZ
    You should have a Class I trailer hitch on your 2011 Honda CRZ because the only hitches available for your vehicle are Class I, 1-1/4 inches, however, stranger things have happened so by measuring the receiver opening you will be sure. Class I hitches have a 2 bike limit and up to a 200 lb tongue weight capacity for any hitch mounted accessory. The tongue weight capacity is the maximum amount of weight that can be carried on a hitch. This figure should be available either in your owners...

  • Can Rola Dart Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier be Locked to the Trailer Hitch
    The Rola Dart has a threaded hitch pin meaning that it has a weld nut inside the shank. That nut is going to prevent the use of lock # 63232. The best way to lock the carrier to the hitch is to use a cable lock such as # TR63255.

  • Will Master Lock Combination Padlock - Item # ML4688D Work Outside In A Humid Environment
    I contacted the manufacturer and the Master Lock Combination Padlock with Flexible Shackle, Item # ML4688D, is not well suited for long term exposure to the elements, especially a humid environment. It is designed to secure luggage and to have limited exposure to the elements so to speak. Another option to consider is the Tow Ready Cable Lock, Item # TR63255. This locking system comes with a 4 foot long vinyl coated steel cable and padlock with 2 keys. It is designed to be rugged...

  • Availability of a 3-Piece Keyed-Alike Lock Set for Hitch, Coupler and Bikes
    We do offer a range of keyed-alike lock sets such as the Bulldog Lifelong Trigger-Style Coupler Lock and 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Set # BD580404. This two-piece set does not include a bike cable lock, however. We do not carry any such 3-piece set, but we can offer you separate cable locks for the bike. For example, we offer the 10-Foot Cable Lock # e98891, the Tow Ready 4-foot Vinyl Coated Steel Cable Lock # TR63255. Video link is attached for your reference.

  • What are Dimensions of the Triangular Cutouts of a 15 Inch Dexstar Wheel?
    I went out to the warehouse and measured the Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel - 15" x 5" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Black Powder Coat item # DEX54FR. The triangle cut outs measure 2" x 1-5/8" x 1-5/8". There should be plenty of room for you to run a 1/2" security chain through one of them. I recommend using a cable lock like the Tow Ready Cable Lock - Vinyl Coated Steel - 4' Long item # TR63255. A cable lock will prevent your wheel from being scratched.

  • Best Bike Rack that Allows For Easy Loading Of the Bikes and Into The Hitch
    It sounds like you may have an electric Sun bike Jo. If you have an electric bike I recommend to use the Thule EasyFold XT 2 E-Bike Platform Rack part # TH903202 because of the included ramp and easy folding feature. The rack does weigh 45 lbs but it can be folded in half and is designed with a handle so you can easily carry it to the vehicle. Once you have the bike rack in the hitch you can simply walk the bike up the included ramp onto the rack instead of lifting the bike. The Thule...
