Video Transcript for Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset Review

Speaker 1: Today you're going to be taking a look at the tow ready J-pin stabilization pin and barrel lock set for two-inch trailer hitches. Part number 63201.The typical issue that we may run into when we start putting accessories on our hitch, is we start driving down the road, chances are it's going to start rattling around, making a lot of noise, which can get pretty annoying. That's because there's not going to be anything holding it in place, mainly just keeping it from coming out. So that's where our J-pin stabilization device is going to come into play, because a regular pin is just meant to hold it in place. With our J-pin, we're gonna take the threaded section and go through the hitch pin hole. And then that hook here is gonna go through the secondary hole.

Then we can take the flange nut and we can thread it on to the end of it. We take our included tool, and we're gonna make sure it's nice and snug.I can already see that there's a whole lot less play in there and if I actually shake the ball mount, the whole vehicle's starting to move. Our J-pin also is going to be a locking device. So we can take our key and make sure that section is sticking out, push it all the way in, and push in on the tab. Now our ball mount or whatever other accessory we have will be nice and secure.Our J-pin's not only gonna be good for ball mounts, it's gonna be good for any kind of accessory that doesn't have a threaded hole, and that doesn't have a built in anti-rattle, like our cargo carrier here.I do wanna mention that our J-pin is only gonna work with hitches that have a secondary hole towards the back of the receiver.

They'll have a standard 5/8 pin hole, but then another smaller hole towards the receiver tube; just like we have here in our Draw Tite hitch, and some of the older hidden hitch or Reese hitches.One of the nicest things about our J-pin is the simple design and how easy it is to use. Unlike some other anti-rattle devices, like this one here, we have Let's Go Arrow, but a lot of other companies have this simple design to them. We're gonna have a block and a spring and a threaded hole. The block and spring is gonna go into your accessory so we have to compress the spring and feed the spring and block into the accessory until it lines up with the pinhole on the side. Now as you can see, it can be a little bit of a hassle sometimes, and sometimes it just doesn't wanna cooperate.

And if we have a solid shank, we're not gonna be able to use on of these.Now once you do have the block and spring in place, you would take the threaded bolt, and you insert your accessory into the hitch, and hope that it doesn't fall out. Then go through your pin hole, sliding your threaded bolt through, and you would tighten it down. And once you tighten that bolt down, it's gonna push that block and the spring, which is gonna push the accessory to one side, just like our J-pin. This particular model isn't a locking one, but there are some that are locking, so you do get the best of both worlds, of having an ant-rattle and a locking device.Again, our J-pin is just gonna be a lot easier to use. You're just gonna have to put it into our hitch pinhole, and then thread a nut on and not have to worry about putting something inside of our accessory and hoping that it doesn't fall out when we put it into our receiver.One other benefit our J-pin has over the other style ant-rattle device, is that this is gonna work with solid shanks.

We're not gonna have to put it on the inside of our accessory, and it's gonna work with virtually any accessory whether it's a hollow or solid shank.Our J-pin is gonna come with everything we need to get it in place, including a wrench, two keys, and a dust cover to keep dirt and debris out of the lock zone.Paul H. wrote in saying, "Simple to install, everything needed is included. And now my trailer ball and bar has zero slack. it feels like it is welded straight into my frame. Those rattle and unexpected clunks going down the road are a thing of the past."If you're looking to get rid of that annoying rattle when you're driving down the road from the accessories inside your trailer hitch, our J-pin stabilization device is gonna be doing a great job of that, while being extremely easy to use. And that'll finish up your look as a tow ready J-pin stabilization pin and barrel lock set for two-inch trailer hitches. Part number 63201.

I installed it a year ago to prevent the receiver from rattling and it has done that without fail. I haven't ever removed it. 576093

Work's great on our new hitch, keep's the bike rack from rattling. Thanks etrailer for the great service. 440497

Great product, the only fault is the cap fell off the lock. Wish I could get another one, other than that it is great.

As promised this product eliminates the rattle in the 2 inch to 1 1/4 inch adapter I installed for my 1 1/4 inch bike rack. However, there is still a pretty noticeable wobble in the bike rack. The bike rack is bolted into the adapter, so the wobble is at the hitch and the adaptor. I plan to try putting some sort of shim between the 2 inch hitch and the 1 1/4 inch adapter. Hopefully, this will eliminate the wobble, which I consider unacceptable. 565200

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

This hitch was installed on my 2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i Limited. The website is fantastic and makes finding the correct products for your vehicle very easy. The hitch arrived in only a few days and came complete with all the necessary installation accessories. The hitch comes with fish wire for the frame bolts so you don't need to fuss with buying fish wire. Some reviews stated that you can go in from the inside of the vehicle but this is totally unnecessary and more work. Just follow the instructions, with exception of the muffler heat shield. You can drill 1/2" holes through the heat shield in the dimpled areas corresponding to where the instructions tell you to cut out the heat shield (see some of the other reviews for more detail on this). These holes allow you to securely fasten the heat shield over the hitch using the hitch bolts. Make sure you have a torque wrench and an 11/16" deep socket to tighten the frame bolts. I would also recommend removing the muffler which is very simple. Lube the muffler mounts with WD-40 to facilitate the removal of the muffler. You will save at least $300 installing this yourself. 485071

I'm really excited about my stabilization pin. We'll be using it for our Reese Explore ProSeries 63153 Rambler cargo basket. I took it out and tested it today after it arrived. There was a fair amount of play between the cargo carrier shank and the receiver when I tugged on it, and the stabilization pin cut that down to pretty much nil. It was easy to install, and I'm excited about the locking feature. Last time we took the carrier on a road trip, I removed it and put it inside our van each night - not wanting it to be stolen. It'll be nice not having that hassle anymore. 487947

This is an easy to use lock that I thought about returning because I thought it was too much for my needs and I could get by with a cheaper product. I'm glad I didn't do that even though etrailer had processed an RMA for me with no hassles. I've had this for a year and it's stood the test of time and use. I can get it fitted in literally just a few minutes. I've attached the key as well as the keys to my trailer to the included tool which makes my process easier and finding the tool and keys in my trailer bag one simple task. 463100

Innovative product. Works well with bike rack which previously rattled and bounced excessively. This appears to tighten everything well. 59536

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

Good solid product. Nice cap over the key slot and O-ring to keep dirt out of the mechanism. One manufacturer issue. This Draw•Tite® J-Pin® Anti-Rattle Pin could not be used on a Draw Tie hitch which was pre-drilled for a J-Pin. The mounting bracket which was part of the hitch got in the way of installing the pin from one direction and from installing the lock from the other direction. 493294

Have only opened the box and not yet had the occasion to use the new trailer J-pin. It appears to be well made and of high quality. Of particular note, it was a pleasure actually opening the package. I had no need to get out the tin-snips or a hand saw or a hunting knife. The package stayed closed until I needed it to open and then popped apart as if it was just waiting for my request. Thank you eTrailer! 280162

I guess I didn't know if the hitch has two holes is enough reason to buy this product. I liked the quality of it but it just doesn't work for me, at least for now. I needed to secure my Thule Vertex 4 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting Item # TH9029XT, but now I have to find pay for Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device - THSTL2. The problem is my Bike Rack has already one of the locking mechanism, and I just need the second lock to the hitch, but can't find it here :(. I wish this point was brought up in the video so I knew what I was about to buy. 373677

I purchased the Draw-Tite hidden trailer hitch, Airlift 1000 air springs and tail light wiring kit for my 2017 AWD Sienna. Reviews were correct, the hitch looks great and you should bend the tabs during installation to get it in. I also purchased the wiring kit for trailer lights (pain to install but worth it) and the Airlift 1000 additional load supports that should help with a full load. The air springs were surprisingly easy to install especially when you are already installing the hitch and wiring kit. Recommend doing it all at once (wiring kit first, then hitch, then air lift springs). etrailer has been over the top on customer service. Shipped quick, checked after it arrived and love the website! Already placed another order for more accessories! (get the cargo bag ahead of time with free shipping if you are going to use a cargo hitch) 360094

This is a great, secure locking pin. Holds tight. Easy to use. I hope replacement rubber caps are available. I'll use it for my hitch ball as well as the step unit. 538487

These are EXCELLENT- the BEST on the Market and I do HOPE the Manufacture never decides to DROP THEM! IF you pull ANYTHING- this -if put on CORRECTLY will NOT BANG on taking off or Stopping while pulling a Boat or whatever- I think THIS was a GREAT Inovation- without this on my Hummer or SUV you HEAR the Bang Bamg as you take off and Go- they are the BEST!!! 151999

I would like to tell you about my experience with etrailer.com. I am a return customer because I always find what I need at reasonable prices, quick and inexpensive shipping charges. I ordered this lock for a 1999 GMC Safari to fit my Draw Tite hitch. It is very well made. Fits perfectly and no wobble at all. I highly recommend etrailer.com. I feel they are a very good company to deal with because I get personal service which is uncommon these days. 399525

Class 3 receiver hitch works great on our 2017 Subaru Outback. Perfect fit and the light kit is custom to the vehicle. The install process was easy and the how to video"s at etrailer took all the uncertainty out of the job. Went on just as advertised and I was ready to roll. The hitch blends in with the rear of the Outback and is functional and good looking. Thanks for all the good work making the ordering and installing so easy. 464660

J-pin works great ! No more rattle pulling my trailer it tightens the receiver good . Lock is nice also, we'll made! 128876

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

Simple to install, everything needed is included. And now my trailer ball and bar has ZERO slack...it feels like it is welded straight into my frame.

The Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin seems to work really well on a DrawTite trailer hitch (also purchased from etrailer) equipped 2015 Subaru Forester using a standard tongue. No tongue rattling when pulling a loaded 4 x 6 foot utility trailer. The barrel lock on the first pin that I received was either jammed in the lock position, or was supplied with the wrong keys. In any case, no problem exchanging after a quick telephone call to etrailer. I received the replacement in a couple of days. No return of the defective pin necessary. As usual, excellent service. 511472

Great product! I was excited when I learned it was free with my purchase. It is a little more heavy duty than what I need since I won't be leaving the hitch on all the time, but I can definitely use it on my dads ranch. 60547

by:


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

A product that allows you to tighten the component inserted in the 2 inch receiver to keep it from moving around. A great product. 292213

Best of everything, Price, Selection, Availability, Shipping, Information and additional accessories. Ordered hitch and accessories 5 days before xmas with no intention of receiving before Jan 1st. WRONG, had everything on my porch in 3 days, merry xmas to me. Cant say enough about etrailer.com, Don't buy anywhere else. Thank You 328215

by:


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

Ordered on a Monday and received it the next day. Unbelievable quick service. Also very happy with the hitch. I would definitely recommend this company for your next purchase. 382232

Good product, eliminates a lot of noise. The only downside is the lock cover doesn't weather well, had mine over a year and the "rubber" keyway cover is starting to fail. I would buy another one. 263196

by:


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

I RECEIVED THE PRODUCTS SEVERAL DAYS EARLIER THAN PROMISED. INSTALLED IT EASILY THE SAME DAY RECEIVED EVEN THOUGH I AM 74 YEARS YOUNG - I LIKE THE PROVISION FOR UTILIZING THE J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches - Part #63201 and the welded on tab for utilizing the Pollak 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket w/ Mounting Bracket - Vehicle End - HM40975 - A better setup for the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee than the factory tow package and much less expensive as well. 322774

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, Colin 75438



- 63201

by:


Really liked the product, but not able to use it because we have a nut welded in our hitch. We did not know that when we purchased this item. The tow hatch is great. Very easy to install, took about 45 mins- 1hr. Would like to see e trailers use foam packing around the hatch ends so they don't go through the box during shipping. Thankfully they taped all the items to the hatch so everything was there. 396763

This is an excellent companion product to the newer receiver hitch platforms that accommodate such a pin that reduces sloppiness in the fit of inserts. The wrench that was included was a big plus and it is easy to stow. 538424

  • 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.

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.

  • Why Does my Draw-Tite Have two Hitch Pin Holes on my 2012 BMW X5
  • The pin you should be using is the larger one. The purpose for the second hole is for using a Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin # 63201. Check out the picture I attached that shows this product being installed on a hitch that is similar to yours. I also attached a review for this product that shows how it works. I would not recommend you use the smaller hole even though it seems to offer a smooth ride for you. Since you have a Thule rack you should be able to just tighten up the threaded...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Towing System for 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • When you install an aftermarket part on your vehicle like a trailer hitch receiver in this case, you are protected by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act. This act states, in part, that unless the installation and the part caused a problem then the Toyota Factory Warranty cannot be voided. I recommend looking it up online and you can print it out if you need the hard copy. For your 2018 Toyota RAV4, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76134 is...

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch for 2013 Ford Edge Sport
  • The dealer might not offer it, but we have a hitch for the 2013 Ford Edge Sport model. I'd recommend going with the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 75728. Unlike the Curt C13067, the Draw-Tite model doesn't require that a safety strap like # 18050 be used for hitch mounted accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers. If you'll be using the hitch for towing purposes, you'll also need a few other items to complete your towing system: Trailer wiring harness, part # 118515 Ball mount kit,...

  • Distance from the Center of Receiver Hitch Pin Hole Back to Shank on Trailer Hitch Extender # 80307
  • On the Hitch Extender for 2 inch Trailer Hitches - 8 inch Long, # 80307, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole in the receiver back to the shank is 4-1/8 inches on the outside, 3 inches on inside. There is also a smaller hole nearer the receiver opening that is meant for a J-Style Anti-Rattle hitch pin like the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2 inch Receivers, # 63201. I have included a link to a video that features this lockset below.

  • Towing Setup For A 2015 Chrysler Town and Country
  • We have everything that you will need to tow a trailer with your 2015 Chrysler Town and Country. Your vehicle has combined wires for both the brake and turn signal lights, therefore, I recommend using a trailer wiring harness like the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118534 as this will work well for as you. This is a complete plug and play kit with everything needed for installation and no required hardwiring. For a trailer hitch receiver compatible...

  • Which Hole On My Hitch Opening is the Hitch Pin
  • Sounds like you have a hitch that is set up for a j-pin style of anti-sway like the part # 63201. The rearmost hole on the hitch opening will be a little bit larger and that is the correct hole to use for the hitch pin of your bike rack. Most anti-rattle devices for bike racks are specific to that manufacturer and model of bike rack. If you email me back with the bike rack you have I can see what we offer that would work.

  • Anti Rattle Device Compatible With Ballmount That Has Solid Shank
  • Because the shank is solid, I don't offer an anti-rattle lock that would work. You could use a hitch lock like part # 40107 and an anti-rattle device like part # RHSB. If you're using a Draw-Tite or Hidden Hitch that has the smaller, extra hole in the receiver tube next to the hitch pin hole, (see photo) you could use the # 63201 locking hitch pin that would also keep the shank of the # D210 moving around in the receiver tube.

  • 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...

  • Why are There Two Different Size Holes on the Draw-Tite Class III Hitch for 2009 Honda CR-V
  • The Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch, # 75547, that you have on your 2009 Honda CR-V will use the 5/8 inch hole to secure hitch mounted accessories or ball mounts to the trailer hitch. The smaller hole is designed for the J-Pin Stabilization Pin, # 63201, and is not intended to be a hitch pin hole. If you have a hitch mounted accessory with a 1/2 inch hole, then it is probably intended to be used with a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver, rather than a 2 inch receiver. If this is the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Motorcycle Carrier for 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • For your 2012 Honda Odyssey EX, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75270. This hitch is rated for up to 675 lbs tongue weight. I then recommend using the J-Pin Stabilization pin and lock # 63201 along with the Ultra-Fab Dirt Bike Carrier # UF48-979033. I also recommend the Erickson Ratchet Tie-Down Straps w/ Web Clamps and S-Hooks - 1-1/4" x 12' - 667 lbs - Qty 2 # EM31353 to secure your dirt bike to the carrier. I also recommend...

  • Recommended Front Hitch Receiver For 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2
  • For your 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2, I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65071 which is a confirmed fit for your truck. The receiver will sit about an inch back from the most forward part of your grill and will be just about even with your skid plate for ground clearance. I've attached a photo to assist with the look on a standard Colorado to compare. I recommend using the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer...

  • Recommended Front Trailer Hitch for 2015 Toyota Tacoma 4WD for Snow Plow
  • For your 2015 Toyota Tacoma 4WD, I recommend the SnowBear Personal Snowplow for 2" Hitches # SB324-080 for the easiest install. You are correct that the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch # 65070 will allow you to retain the skid shield and will work well for your truck and this plow. I also recommend the use of the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches # 63201.

  • Tools Required to Install Draw-Tite Class III Hitch 76138 on 2016 Mazda CX-5

The linked instructions tell you all the tools required to mount Class III Hitch # 76138 on your Mazda CX-5. I also included a helpful article with tips for an easier hitch install.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2003 Dodge Durango
  • For your 2003 Dodge Durango, the Reese 37069 is not a fit. You will instead want the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75081 which is made by the same company and is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. You may also want the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches # 63201 for a lock and anti-rattle designed for this hitch. If you need trailer wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One # 118334 if you don't have the factory tow package or # 118381...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver, Cargo Carrier, and Roof Rack for 2018 Mazda CX-5

This is an easy installation with no drilling required. I recommend using the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches # 63201 made for this hitch to give you security and anti-rattle stability for your cargo carrier. For your cargo carrier, I recommend the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153....

  • Is Draw-Tite Class III Hitch 75784 Compatible with J-Pin Locking Stabilizer 63201
  • Draw-Tite Hitch # 75784 is a confirmed fit on your 2017 Acura RDX and this hitch is indeed compatible with the J-pin locking stabilizer # 63201. This will work along with Reducer Sleeve # HT02 to allow your 1-1/4-inch bike rack to be installed in this 2-inch hitch. The J-pin will stabilize the reducer in the hitch tube but it will not do anything for the potential rattle of the bike rack's 1-1/4-inch shank in the reducer's opening. You may care to use a secondary anti-rattle device...

  • 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.

  • Recommendations to Tow a Trailer and 2 Bikes with a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon 2.5i Limited
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75673 is what I recommend for you to install on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon as it can easily tow a 1,500-lb trailer and hold 2 bikes. You will want to check your owner's manual though about the max Tongue Weight (TW) of your Outback Wagon. From what I found online it looks like it has a TW capacity of 200 lbs which, since a trailer's TW should be 10-15% of the loaded trailer weight, could be an issue if you are wanting to carry bikes as...

He stated that the use of an anti-rattle device is permissible and cited the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset, # 63201, as the type of anti-rattle he would use. I have included a link to a video review of the J-Pin for you to view.
