Video Transcript for B and W Hitch Locks - Standard Pin Lock - BWTS51235 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at a trailer hitch receiver lock. Now this is a flush style lock that helps prevent theft of your hitch mounted accessories. It's made from a durable stainless steel construction, which provides superior corrosion resistance. It also features the tube key lock cylinder that provides better security than standard key mechanisms. This type of lock is much harder to pick and it's designed to resist drilling. It's also more difficult to duplicate keys.

It does come with two keyed alike tube style keys. Both of these keys are included and it has a weather resistant dust cap that keeps the cylinder free from water and dirt.To unlock the unit, you place the key in, give it a quarter turn design, lock comes off. You can place this through your hitch and through the accessory. Then place the lock on the other side. Move it to a locked position, and then push down the included dust cap.

Now the pin diameter is 5/8 of an inch. The usable length or the span that's measuring this inner width area, that's three and 5/8 of an inch. This would be great for two and a half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitches. The overall length gives us a measurement of pretty close to seven inches long. That's going to do it for today's look at the trailer hitch receiver lock..

I have had my B&W hitch for over a year and I get lots of complements on the looks and features with being able to fold it under. It still looks new and I use it a lot. I am very satisfied and would buy it again. 621610

Just what I wanted. Jamie even checked to make sure it was the correct part. Thanks a lot. 555997

only had it for a day so far. first thoughts is it operates smoothly and cap stays on firmly. I like how it is all stainless steel and not just a silver coating that typically chip off and allow rust. 442831

still works great! i keep a little lube on it. the dust cap lanyard hasnt broken. still works like a champ. i do not live in the rust belt, so i have no experience with the effects of rust on it. thanks.

Bought the B and W Tow and Stow, lock and two extra pins. While you pay more; I can say you certainly get a good quality product. I am using this with a Dodge 3500 so I expect to tow heavier trailers and the three ball option should allow me to be very flexible. This is not my first purchase from etrailer. Every time I have used them it has been a positive experience. Good company and good, helpful people working there. Yes you can buy cheaper hitches but do you really want to chance it with your expensive toys and equipment? 440704


Comments

After using the hitch for a year I am still satisfied with it. No issues at all. Would recommend this to anyone needing to tow a trailer

After doing tons of research I decided to purchase a B&W hitch for my 2015 GMC 2500HD. Needless to say it was one of the best purchases I've ever made. Extremely well built unit. Much heavier than I anticipated it to be. Should last me many years. Thank you for a great AMERICAN built product. 316738



- BWTS51235
by:

Great product. I use it on my 2016 Ram 2500. It is a perfect fit and has no vibration. B&W quality is always outstanding. I wouldn't buy any other brand. 7 inch drop and rise is more than enough on my stock height Ram 2500. My favorite feature is how you can stow it away when not towing. I'll post pictures of both with it out and stowed away. 329863

Using on stored trailer to deter theft. Removed adjustable tongue and placed through frame hole. Wanted stainless due to constant salt air. High quality product. Very pleased with both product and etrailer service. Would highly recommend. 499987

This is a very nicely machined unit. It looks like it should last a long time. The rubber cap that protects the keyhole fits very tightly. My receiver is 2.5 inches long and this still had about a half inch extra. I took a PCV grommet and placed it behind the lock portion to keep it snug and from rattling around. 276600

I Just received the Tow & Stow hitch, but have not yet used it. It appears to be a high quality piece and I'm confident it will serve me well for many, many years. However, I would like to see the manufacturer offer, as an option, three keyed alike locking pins, as the pins/clips provided can be removed in seconds by someone who believes they can remove the ball mount or the hitch itself by removing the pins (they cannot, assuming you are using a hitch lock and the hitch is mounted properly). If the pins/clips disappear and you don't have spares, the hitch cannot be used properly. Locking pins would give me the confidence to leave the Tow & Stow on my truck when parked without a boat or car hauler attached. 338294

by:

This fits on a 2018 Toyota Tacoma 2" hitch! I tried another brand from a different manufacturer, and it was about 3/8 inch too narrow (span). This one works, albeit has a gap of about 1/2 inch or so. Not a problem, as others have commented that they use rubber washers between the shaft to fill up gap. The rubber boot appears to be a great way to keep the keyhole from getting dirt or debris inside. Really like the key as it's much better than a standard key lock. Cheers! 561558

It's plenty long enough to fit my 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch. The rubber cover over the locking mechanism fits tight, should keep it dry snd clean. B & W is known for their quality and seems superior to the master lock pin I had on my old truck. 437391

Just received my new hitch yesterday and it seems great after using it once thus far. Time will tell how it holds up, but the hitch is very heavy and appears to have great build quality. I have this on my Chevy 2500HD and the adjustment range seems perfect for a wide range of trailers. 400431

  • Locking Pin for a 3 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2017 Ford F-350
  • The Trailer Receiver Lock # BWTS51235 has a usable span of exactly 3-5/8 inches so you'll be cutting it really close. A better option is the Bulldog # BD580412. The usable span is right at 4 inches.

  • Does the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount Have an Anti-Theft System?
  • The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS20049B has a slot cut into the adjustment channel, which you can see in the accompanying photo, that stops the platform from being removed when the ball mount is installed in your hitch receiver. Further, you can get a hitch lock such as # BWTS51235 to secure the mount in your 2-1/2" hitch for total safety. I've added links to video reviews of both parts for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Towing Package for 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe XL
  • For your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe XL Limited I recommend starting with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver 2" # C13153.

For your wiring, I recommend the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56184 to get your 4-way and then add the Universal Brake Controller Wiring Kit # ETBC7 Kit to get your 7-way. This kit comes with the wiring, the connectors,...

  • Since I do not know your vehicle or hitch size what I suggest is that you review the linked page showing our hitch locks that are made using stainless steel construction. Click on your hitch size to see just those locks that will fit that hitch. For a 2-inch hitch I suggest the Bulldog Lifelong Trailer Hitch Lock # BD580402. For a 2-1/2-inch hitch I recommend the B&W # BWTS51235. Any lock, even one made of stainless steel, will benefit from you occasionally removing it from the hitch...

  • Best Hitch Pin Lock for a 2019 Ford F-350 with 3 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • The Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # BWTS51235 only has a 3-5/8" usable pin width so I would not use it on a 3" trailer hitch receiver. It may work but that would be cutting it very close. Instead, I recommend using the Bulldog Hitch Receiver Lock part # BD580412 which has a 4" usable pin width that will be plenty for your 2019 Ford F-350.

  • Is There a Locking Pin for B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount?
  • There are hitch pin locks that will work with a B&W Tow & Stow such as # BWTS20040B. The lock you'll want is simply going to depend on the size receiver hitch that you have. Lock # BWTS51234 is for 2" hitches with a 5/8" diameter pin hole that is no wider than 2-3/4". Lock # BWTS51235 is for 2-1/2" hitches with a 5/8" diameter pin hole that is no wider than 3-5/8".

For the black order part # BWTS20040B or for the chrome-finish order part # BWTS20040C. You can use lock # BWTS51235 with either ball mount to secure it to your hitch.

  • Using a 2 Inch Dallas Cowboys Hitch Cover in a 3 Inch Hitch on a 1994 Ford F-150
  • There is a way to use Dallas Cowboys hitch cover # HTCC2008 in a hitch with a 3 inch receiver opening on your 1994 Ford F-150. It will require the use of an adapter, # 38735, because there are no hitch covers that fit directly in a 3 inch hitch. The adapter will reduce it down to a 2 inch so you can use the hitch cover. Or, if you already have a reducer sleeve you could use it. I also recommend a hitch lock such as # BWTS51235 which has a span of 3-5/8 inches to deter theft of the hitch...

  • Recommended Stainless Steel Hitch Lock with 2-7/8 Inch Span for 2010 Toyota Tundra

This stainless steel, flush-style hitch lock has a usable span of 3-5/16 inches . The weather-resistant plastic dust cap will also keep the cylinders free from water and debris. 2 keyed-alike tube keys are included.

I have made a photo for you displaying these measurements. This 3-Ball Mount, which is Chrome but also available in Black at part # BWTS20049B, fits 2-1/2 inch trailer hitches and has a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball (3,500 lb capacity), 2 inch hitch ball (7,500 lb capacity) or 2-5/16...

  • Extra Long Hitch Pin Lock for 2008 Toyota Tundra
  • The OEM hitches on some trucks including your 2008 Toyota Tundra can have an extra-wide collar on the receiver tube that can interfere with some standard locking hitch pins. An extra-long model such as the DeadBolt # RH5-XL will work great.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Toyota Tacoma
  • I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Class III trailer hitch # 75238 over the Curt Class III trailer hitch # C13264 because it sits about 2" closer to the rearmost part of your bumper. This gives you more clearance for towing and using accessories. If you are going to be using it for towing you also need wiring and a ball mount kit. I recommend going with the T-One # 118685 for a 4-Way Flat connector or the Tekonsha # 22117 if you need a 7-Way connector because we have found the Tekonsha...

  • Will B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount BWTS20040B Fit a Class V 2-1/2-Inch Hitch
  • The B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS20040B is a Class IV adjustable ball mount that will work in a 2-1/2-inch hitch with either a Class IV or a Class V rating. The weight ratings differ for the two included hitch balls; the 2-inch is rated for 7500-lbs but the 2-5/16-inch ball is rated for 14.5K trailer weight. You can use this Class IV ball mount in a 2-1/2-inch Class V hitch so long as you remain within the capacity for the particular ball. You can lock it to the hitch with part...

  • Weight Capacity of B&W Adjustable 2-1/2-Inch Ball Mounts BWTS20040B & BWTS20040C
  • With a multi-ball adjustable ball mount like the B&W # BWTS20040B and the similar chrome-finish model # BWTS20040C, both intended for 2-1/2-inch hitches, the weight rating depends on which of the hitch balls is in use. As you might expect, the larger ball will have a higher weight rating. The 2-inch hitch ball is rated for 7500-lbs towing and the 2-5/16-inch ball is rated for 14,500-lbs. Either ball mount can be used along with a locking pin # BWTS51235.

  • Could B&W Hitch Lock # BWTS51235 Work in 20k Trailer Hitch of 2019 Ram 3500
  • Since hitch pins don't ever carry the weight of a trailer they aren't rated for trailer weight like you'll see other towing components. The Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # BWTS51235 that you referenced would work well in a 20k hitch installed on your 2019 Ram 3500.

  • 2-1/2-Inch Hitch Pin Lock Available Keyed Alike
  • The particular B&W 2-1/2-Inch Hitch Lock # BWTS51235 you mentioned is not offered with the keyed alike option but we do have similar hitch pin locks that are and you can see them on the linked page. The one I recommend is the DeadBolt # RH5-XL which has the same 3-5/8-inch span as the B&W. Just select the keyed-alike option on the lock's page before adding the three pieces to your cart.
